Struggled through to the end of season 2 of The Terror. Second half it really lost it's way after a good start. Wasn't terrible or anything but not a patch on season. Not that it had anything to do with S01. I think the only connection is Ridley Scott as Executive Producer. None of the same writers, directors; story completely different - even thematically it wasn't all that close.

On the lookout for something else now.
Righteous Gemstones, watch it.

Yeah I felt the same. Literally zero connection to season 1 or any of the author's other works. And it wasn't scary. I don't know why they made it. Didn't finish it.

I watched The End of the Fucking World Season 2 which surprised me greatly by being as good as Season 1. Loved it. Basically all Brits are 500% better when they don't have LDN accents.

Really? I thought season 1 was perfect and I have no interest in watching another one
I also thought that but I chanced it and it really works! It's honestly like when a writer writes a sequel because they have something to say rather than because someone waved big bucks at them.

I might give it a go. You're right about Northern brits being sounder than southern ones. I think Londoners are fine in general but it's the cunts from the shires that are the worst

Hmm, maybe it picks up, but we've watched a few of the episodes and it's pretty dull. Bar Bonnie, who is great. We did enjoy first season.

I wanted to watch that BBC War Of The Worlds,but saw some reviews online so presume I've missed it until it's repeated.

the hatter sprayed him with radioactive spray and all his other cowls are in the bat-home-dry-cleaning-facility which is already at maximum.

I'm really growing into this dumb theatrical slightly camp fun. The penguin and his gang are class. modern tv BORING.

His trademark "quacking" sound had been created to prevent the non-smoking Meredith from ruining takes by coughing whenever the frequently-smoking Penguin smoked.
Here he is in a later screen role.

Rick Stein's secret France.
I really like his programs. A mix of travelogue & cooking.
