My lip-reading needs work, but I think I made out “back row” and “grupper kick”.

I don’t know why More4 can’t show/release both parts of the Rebecka Martinsson stories at once.

I can’t remember what happened this morning, never mind a week ago.

I watch RB on all4 so if you wait long enough you can watch 2 episodes in a row. I get how you feel Justy, episode 1 was 90mins long and the rest are only 45. I'm currently watching Borgen, a political drama brought to you by the folks that did The Bridge. A danish version of the Oval Office for those of us old enough to remember.

Yeah, binge watching a series is the only way I can hope to follow the plots on these Nordic thrillers. I offered to put up a 6 by 4 whiteboard in the living room so that we could record the storylines, but the wife doesn't fancy it.

Last week’s episode was a bit of a shock!

I’ve not watched Borgen. Most of the murderers in politics tend to get away with it. I like to see the killers brought to justice at the end of an episode.

I’m watching Marcella at the minute, purely because it’s set in Belfast. What a load of tripe.

Blue Bloods is back on Monday. It’s not quite as good as the top drawer Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue but it’s well made stuff.

Blue Bloods is interesting as it is the only police show I know in which the main characters have a pretty well functioning family.

A common complaint this on the FB TV group I am in. Good show but yes show them as double header.

Borgen is excellent, very well written with good characters. S4 coming to Netflix next year.

Just watched both seasons of Jack Ryan. The first wasn't bad. The second was poorer with the daftest final episode I've ever seen.

Rebekka Martinsson finished tonight, good show.

Deutschland 89 starts on March 5th on More 4, good 80's music. Final part of the trilogy.

Watched Ozack on Netflix -- all 3 series --unforunately the 4th is to be the last -- but really like the fact the female characters are all Lady Macbeths -- much more deadly than the male -- real snakes.

Who do they remind me of and why -- The Claimant , the female press , the female social media ,-- deadly --- Shakespeare understood his woman -- love them-- but don't cross.

Ozark very good have to say. Yer fella Bateman is in everything these days, must be worth a mint.

Bateman is always good value.

Not watched Ozark (yet) but Laura Linney was superb in the Big C.

Finally watching Deadwood at the moment.
