I enjoy The Last Kingdom a lot more than I expected to. It's refreshing to not have a main character that is much smarter than everyone else and can be pretty daft with regularity.

Yeah Uhtred is a dumbass more often in that show than I'm used to seeing, but that's more realistic in many ways.

That show came out of nowhere and blew me away. The wait continues for season 3.

Admittedly the first season was amazing but I found the 2nd season basically unwatchable. Still haven't finished it. I guess you just have to power through it and it gets back to it's roots in the next seasons.

Yeah even I  was tempted to skip the second season but won't do it. Gonna pile through  Molenation . Frankly even if it's half of season 1 then I won't mind it anyway.

I'll admit am little late to the party. On the same note though, completed  both Office UK and US.  Absolutely  loved the US one. Dwight Shrute is my top 5 fav characters of all time. Next  on list is Band of brothers, mad men and the documentary on Mozart, whoever the fuck that is.


The Wire is undoubtedly a GOAT series in the sense of the word. One of the great things is that each season adds another thematic universe, avoiding the feeling of aimlessness that many successful and thus long-running series produce after a while.

But let's not continue talking about this shall we, it's become a running gag long ago



The guy who made it made another, not quite as pointed but really, really gorgeous series about life in New Orleans post Katrina, Treme. I can recommend it very much.

Have to admit I only know The Office UK.

Of course, the uncontested very best of the bunch are the Sopranos, if you haven't seen them yet, and if you have time, watch them first.
You will not regret it.
You SHOULD give a go at Office US imo. Also I wanted watch Sopranos in the first place but none of the Netflix India or Amazon prime or Hotstar has it. So went with The Wire instead.

Was season two with the additions of the Russians?

Season 2 was their most commercially successful season, probably because it's the season with the whitest cast Smile

Season 4 is where it's at

Yea no I wasn't saying anything bad about season 2, I was just trying to confirm it was the Russians season.

I think the problem with that season is that it is kinda hard to get used to the many new faces and different angle that they took that season, but if you just hang around until around the middle episodes of that season, the pace and intrigue picks up. I stopped after season two because of life, I don't know when I will pick it up again because there's so many things to watch + life.

It's worth it to power through season 2. For those who loved season 1, they also all love season 3 because the focus shifts to Mcnulty/Stringer/Avon again. And season 4 is the season that most people rank as the best.

Been too long since I've done a binge of the Wire. I'll put that after the new season of Narcos.

Halfway through the second season already and I am loving it as much as season one if not more. A lot more strings pulling in this one which is exactly what I like.

It is the kind of show I wish I could see again for the first time. Oh well it's been over 10 years so at some point I can almost have that.

Completed the second season and tbh after a great takeoff felt like the it made little shaky landing. I was so intrigued from the start and it increased right through to the third act. Climax however left little bad taste in mouth I have to say.
Anyways off to third one.

Also I have to ask whether Omar really saw Bird shooting Gant or he just made that whole thing up. If it's latter then my respect in the brother is going to increase ten fold. Have to say the guy must be sleeping with writers for getting such a an badass role in otherwise very much down to earth show.
