    Finished this last night. Watched all 53 episodes over 19 nights. Seasons 1 and 2 were brilliant, season 3 was rubbish.

    We’ve watched All Creatures Great and Small which is lovely.

    Then tonight


    We watched 2 episodes of this and found it extremely slow.
    I don’t know if it’s because we’ve just finished Designated Survivor which was incredibly fast paced so it’s affected our perspective a bit.
    We’d heard good things about The Fall so we’re wondering if it’s a slow start and it gets better?
    Is it worth persevering with?

    I've started watching Designated Survivor as well. I sort of expected Kiefer Sutherland to pull a gun and shoot some of the wankers he's having to deal with in this series, that's how Jack Bauer would have dealt with it. But he's playing a much more subtle character in this, with a big ... BIG plate of problems.
    It is rather good.

    Hmmm, I wouldn't know if it's worth persevering with... we got bored after 2 episodes.....

    Started watching 'Away' on Netflix. This is a drama about the first manned mission to Mars. It's not so much about the science and technology (which is all done very well) but the pressures on the crew, and how they react to their job and their isolation. To add a bit of spice to the story the crew is International. An American commander (Hilary Swank, always very watchable,) a Russian, Chinese, Indian and and an interesting Brit. This seems an unlikely scenario, but it definitely adds an edge to the inter crew relationships. A crew locked into a tin can for three years ... that's got drama seeping out of every crack.
