I watched the last episode of 'Decline and Fall' last night and whilst it held my attention I have to admit that if I hadn't been alerted I wouldn't have seen it as a biting satire.... Perhaps I am a philistine.....
I enjoyed watching Ronnie O'Sullivan at work at the Crucible..... The Selby match bored me.....

Watched I, Daniel Blake on Amazon last night. I can understand the awards it won and the reviews it got. Very powerful condemnation of our current "welfare" system.

I look forwards to when it pops up somewhere for free! I have ditched the shed for today, household matters, Ronny O'Sullivan at 10:00 and then formula One later.

I saw it too. Went next door again for a joint viewing. Very enjoyable. Not sure whether the Shawshank Redemption tribute was in the original - I doubt it. For me the casting was all wrong Several were very unconvincing, but then I've had a personal version in my head for a long time.

I'm not an expert on satire, but remember it was written in 1928, when people were perhaps more deferential, and I still think it comes across better in the book rather than the TV production.

I watched the Alan Turing film on Ch4 The Imitation Game. Enjoyed it, but now I'll read my copy of his biography, and see how much of it was true. :smile:

On a slightly lower cerebral level I enjoyed some good snooker, watched the Grand Prix and then was totally engrossed in 'Line of Duty'. That DCI Huntley is a nasty piece of work..... A very short hour!

I sampled 'Born Killer' on C4 last night. Not too sure about it yet but worth watching the next episode I think. It's going to be a very dark story!

'Line of Duty' was very good last night. Can't wait for next Sunday when we get the final episode.

I half watched Grantchester - felt obliged to, since I had driven through the place after they had just finished a day's filming there last year. I don't think I'll be back. Too much 'box ticking' for me. :smile:

I was thinking of trying it on ITV Hub tonight.... never seen any of it.
ITV are doing another of their dramatisations of an actual case, the shooting of the 11 year old lad. I watched the one about the missing girl and found it fascinating. This one looks as though it could be as good.
I love snooker but Selby v Fu last night was dire.....
