It's' horrific isn't it.

If it were fiction you just wouldn't believe it could happen.

Is anyone else watching or watched Locked Up on 4? It's a Walter Presents thing and is basically a Spanish version of OITNB and Prison Break. Unbelievable but entertaining with good hooks.

Such a disappointment isn't it. They just have a little dance and she gets shot.

Spin.

Froggie political drama- it's better than it sounds.
I watched one episode of series 3 and loved it.
Series 1 and 2 (and 3 soon) have just been released on dvd and arrived in the post today!

I've watched the first two episodes of Public Enemy on Sky Atlantic. It's a Belgian police detective thing. A convicted child killer is released from prison and goes to stay in a monastery then a local child is found dead. Pretty good so far.

Not so much if you're 10 years behind us, like Dis.

Oh. So it's just for old people?



In fairness, loads of my friends like it so I'm fully prepared to accept it's just me and reckon you should give it a shot regardless.

Though do bear in mind the super-hip, 24 year old Swedish girl in our office didn't like it either...just saying.



This was nagging at me so I felt compelled to finish the series.

I'm still a bit undecided about it. The policeman is brilliant, and also set to play Hellboy it seems, but Winona the thief is just infuriatingly awful. I think she should have been put down with a spade early on.

Also, I thought the girl's Ferris Bueller dickhead with a heart of gold boyfriend was a weirdly irrelevant plot strand, like they were trying so hard to tick as many 80's boxes as they could that they suddenly realised they didn't have a preppy rich kid in it and had to glue him on somehow.

I liked the way it weaved in the nostalgia but thought it got a bit heavy handed by the end, with all the artfully placed posters and toys and stuff.

But still, the soundtrack stands head and shoulders above the rest of the production. S U R V I V E can do no wrong in my eyes and it's brilliant.

Overall, glad I saw it out to the end but also sort of wish I hadn't started.

There's only two so get both! The newest is probably better though...

I have been watching this and liking it a lot.
Isnt the Walter Presents one season 2 though? I had to search all over for season one.
Anyway it is like a better version of Orange is the New black I think.
