I just watched the film "Otway - The Movie" on London Live and really enjoyed it. As in John Otway and Wild Willy Barret - Really Free.

There is so much more to him than that, quite down to earth in a crazyish sort of way but an interesting insight into the music business.

If you like history and swords, try "Vikings" on Amazon Prime or "The LAst Kingdom" on Netflix. Vikings is the better of the two, if you've read the Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, consider the LAst Kingdom a seperate story, because it doesn't follow the books that well.

Sci Fi people, check out "The Expanse", also on Prime. Set a couple of hundred years in the future, evolves from a space detective show to Star Trek, very well characterised.

Also a Netflix effort, "The Ripper," documentary about the hunt for Peter Sutcliffe. Excellent incite into the police investigation, with interviews from officers involved and women who escaped him.
In a similar vein "Don't **** With Cats" also Netflix details the hunt for a killer who starts off posting videos of him killing cats.

"Roman Empire" dramatized history of three Roman Emperors, Caesar, Caligula and Commodus.

If you like the old Police dramas, check out "Luther" "The Fall" "Line of Duty." The former is more drama based, while the latter are Police Procedurals. Also, "Bodyguard" is worth checking out, about an ex-soldier struggling with PTSD working as bodyguard to the Home Secretary.

"Afterlife" is well worth a watch. Do not binge watch as its too heavy. Drama about a man who has lost his wife, with typical Ricky Gervaise comedy elements.

And, I'm not ashamed to say it "Lucifer" is a lot of fun, about the Devil getting bored in Hell and moving to LA. comedy drama with some heavier stuff thrown in.

Our daughters recommended This Is Us to my wife, I’ve watched the first episode and it really isn’t my thing at all. Apparently there’s 90 episodes, ones enough for me.

We finished the first season of this at the weekend :

Image

It's a Japanese show that mixes fantasy, sci-fi, thriller and gaming with touches of humour.
Three friends unwittingly go through a portal in downtown Tokyo to emerge on the streets to find they're alone, like the whole place is a ghost town. Eventually, after a series of events, they end up walking through some kind of electronic trip-wire-wall and find they're in a game. A real life game, like a video game, but actually live ..
They have to solve puzzles to survive and the first game involves playing together as a team, with the added ingredient of a woman none of them have ever met before who also happens to have stumbled in there.
As the series unfolds, they find there are people about but not many and they're all involved in the games as to win allows you more time in the city - a visa with a number of days on it - but if you lose, you are eliminated .. for good.

It's really unique and perfect for anyone into sci-fi, video games and fantasy : ie, me :D
