I liked WOLF HALL, too. Looking forward to seeing some heads roll. :D

Wolf Hall was fantastic. So (authentically) grim.

Aww...oldies, but goodies. Men still fancy Felicity Kendal from Rosemary & Thyme - she must be in her mid sixties now. She's done a lot of stage/tv work, but her most famous role was in 'The Good Life' - with Richard Briers, Penelope Keith and Paul Eddington. Ran for years over here.

I'll check out Wolf Hall. After Fortitude, I need a little lightness. Seriously grim.
Acorn is a subscription service on my streaming device for the television. It's cheap enough and I can binge watch all sorts of things. I'll have to see if I can find Good Life. We're binging on Midsomer Murders currently. So jolly and dryly funny.

Yep, read about it and saw the previews for the next episode. Seems like Carter died before solving a 'cold case' of hers and for some reason Reese/Riley gets the case to solve. Are you thinking Harold may have to pick up a gun and shoot someone soon? Seems like there is a lot of foreshadowing.

Anyone else watching THE AMERICANS? Very good show with some seriously icky moments this season, one of which involved a suitcase. Also rather amazed they included a necklacing scene even if it was in a storyline involving South Africa's apartheid days. Sure didn't expect to see that on network tv! :shock: :lol: Sadly, TA's ratings haven't been stellar and for some unknown reason, it tends to get ignored once awards season rolls around. Thank goodness FX believes in it as it's been renewed for another season. I'd be pretty disappointed if it got canceled.

AMERICANS is very good but I still have a major problem with the characters. I detest Philip and I loathe Elizabeth. It's always been a problem for me to watch a show where I don't care about the characters. Stan needs to open his eyes and step up and I am disappointed in Margaret. She is in a very bad position but dang the woman literally kept herself blind. I think what I dislike most is what is happening to Paige. She is an innocent and her life is ruined.

VIKINGS- Tonight's ep "To the Gates" was amazing!! Glorious!! History Channel must have socked away most of its budget for this ep. The battle scenes were riveting! Dang...the blood was flowing. Oh Floki you are going down. Looks like another battle next week :D Loved the way Rollo looked at the French princess while slashing his way through French soldiers. Be still my heart 8-)

ETA- TRUE DETECTIVE has a premiere date for S2 with a bit of a trailer -

I don't have a problem with characters being unlikeable. All I ask is that they're interesting. Bore me and I'm gone. Yep, Philip and Elizabeth are a loathsome pair, but I want to see what happens to them week to week. I did feel bad for Martha until she realized "Clark" was a big fat stinking liar and stayed with him. She's a traitor and I hope Stan and Gaad figure that out before Philip kills her. Paige is definitely the victim in all this. I'd love it if she's the one who ultimately brings Philip and Elizabeth down.

ORPHAN BLACK starts next Sat (18th) and a new show follows called TATAU. From what I have read, TATAU is a supernatural show geared for the YA audience and is on BBC3. I'm thinking BBC3 is like our CW on this side of the pond.

OUTLANDER - Oh Claire, you are in a muddle yet again!

Here's a breakdown of the channels run by the BBC Corporation...for your perusal...or not. :)

BBC One and BBC Two are the BBC's flagship television channels. BBC Three and BBC Four are only available via digital television equipment (now in widespread use in the UK). The BBC also runs the BBC News channel, BBC Parliament, and two children's channels, CBBC and CBeebies, on digital."

BBC One - The Corporation's primary network.

BBC Two - Home to more specialist programming, including comedy, documentaries, dramas and minority interest programmes, as well as imported programmes from other countries, particularly the United States.

BBC Three - The main digital television network operated by the Corporation, home to mainly youth-oriented programming, particularly new comedy sketch shows and sitcoms.

BBC Four - Niche programming for an intellectual audience, including specialist documentaries, occasional 'serious' dramas, live theatre, foreign language films and television programmes and 'prestige' archive television repeats.
