Hampstead. I saw the two main actors talking about this on the TV a while back and I'm so glad I came across it. It's simply lovely!

The scenery is absolutely gorgeous - I'd forgotten I'd been to Highgate Cemetery - I shall have to return … for another visit.

I've discovered a show on netflix called Springsteen On Broadway, it's about a rock and roll superstar. I recommend it, I've watched it 18 times already.

good news Kominsky Method season 2 on October 25th (probably not in HobbitLand for Daisey though)

I did that for thirty years

But if you’re looking to avoid sadness, maybe stay away. There was a scene on the second episode (I think) in the graveyard that was heartbreaking. But I really like how he alternates sadness and humour.

I decided to give it a go. There's a scene in the graveyard in the first one - but it's ok, Daisey - it's a trained dog, you'll be alright. :) 

I found plenty to chuckle at and I found the birthday card scene poignant.

Yeah, I'll give Episode 2 a go tomorrow … I should think the next graveyard scene may have more to it.

Just finished watching Safe. Nice mystery with plenty of plot twists and an interesting feature at the start of each episode, where it gave you an additional flashback of previously omitted detail from the previous episodes to help your theorizing.

It is very poignant in places, but it’s also hysterically funny in others, it’s also very rude.

maybe ill watch it durring the day in broad daylight - not at night

I found some parts of the writing to be a little predictable and naïve, but overall I thought After Life was very good. Heartbreaking and funny and sometimes almost at the same time. One of the best things I’ve seen Ricky Gervais do. Highly recommended. And if you binge it’s really only one longish movie.

Yeah I started it late last night at about 1:30 in the morning and only stopped after three episodes just so I'd have something to look forward to today. I then binged the next and final three episodes.

It's good. I felt it was a little preachy in places, which is a habit in Ricky Gervais' shows now, but I let it slide because, well I don't even know why, I just did.

What’s Still Game series 9 like? Getting withdrawal symptoms down here 

It's been ok...... I think they're calling it a day at the right time though.

Defo dropped off in the last couple of seasons.

There's a lot of interesting and obscure stuff on Netflix. It's worth it sometimes just to do some deep browsing through the genres and subgenres.

I'm watching The Miami Showband Massacre. I'd never heard of Miami Showband, but apparently they were the most popular showband in Ireland. This is a fascinating glimpse at subjects I'm not well-versed on, what the Irish call The Troubles and this band.

I'm only halfway through it so i don't know how it all winds up, but I recommend it Daisey because you were posting some questions about Northern Ireland and The Troubles on another thread.

Saw the trailer for that. Had also not heard of them.

Busy watching the documentary about the Madeleine McCann story. How to Make a Murderer created a whole new genre/style of true crime documentaries I think.
