    Oh yeah of course there are plenty of good ones. Peaky etc.

    I couldn't stand The Bodyguard or Line of Duty though.

    John Malkovich as Poirot was shit on a nearly immeasurable scale.

    It’s ok. Bit cheesy though. They often do this sort of thing:

    Person 1 - “The blood on the shirt was John Smith’s”
    Person 2 - “The main suspect?”
    Person 1 - “Yes him”

    Shit like that is obviously to remind the viewer who is who, but they do it so often.

    Pretty sure I'll be giving this a miss.

    Still one of the best UK TV shows ever.

    It was actually rather good. Cumberbatch was fantastic.

    I admit I learned a few things myself about the inner factions of the Leave campaign (for example, how they orchestrated the split of targetted campaigns to different audiences, with UKIP types handling the immigration subject, and the Tories and more moderate types dealing with the economic debates). I didn't appreciate Dominic Cummings was as involved as he was either.

    As a tangent totally unrelated to the show tonight, I'm genuinely really interested in why DC tried to set up an airline out of Russia into eastern Europe - immediately after his history degree.

    I would recommend it alone to discover the operations of how our elections will be from here on in. There are some really interesting scenes about political strategy and data targetting.

    I suppose it's more the subject as a whole that doesn't appeal to me as something enjoyable to watch in the evening.

    I see the Guardian gave two stars and the Telegraph gave it four:

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/tv/2019/...mes-hero-hour/

    Hmm...

    Latest season of It's Always Sunny is on Netflix.

    A couple of really strong episodes, a bunch of decent ones and a couple of poor ones.

    7/10
