Finished AMC’s The Terror. Good stuff. One of the best tv shows in a while. Maintained my interest right to the end, which is rare in the Netflix age. Had tons of atmosphere, great sets and a whole bunch of great character actors. Jared Harris an excellent actor

Lost in Space - the new Netflix one. Enjoyable. Loved the cunt doctor character.

Hitoshi Matsuomoto's Documental. Amazon Prime, 4 eps. Only S1 translated into English. 10 comedians chip in a million yen each (~7.5K euro). They're confined to a room for 6 hours. Anytime they laugh/smile, they're eliminated. Last man standing gets all the money. Unfulfilling end but I imagine they worked out the kinks in the later seasons.

Yeah there’s a certain charm to their sitcoms when they embrace that quaint English eccentric style of humour. They’re rubbish at drama for the most part.
Geez I don't know about that last bit. I think their detective drams Poirot, Morse, Lewis, Vera, and Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) etc are outstanding. I hear Broadchurch was great too.

Midsomer Murders (esp John Nettles era) was a perfect blend or drama and "quintessentially English" quirky tone.

In summary, and in the spirit of the day that's in it, up the brits. god save Charles and camilla. huzzah.

Just finished Kimmy Schmidt Series 4. Just like series 3 it took a few episodes to get going. But when it does it's excellent. Finished way too abruptly.
