Great list! In particular the gridiron ones which are right up my alley.

Just watched the trailer for Versailles. Not something I’d normally go for (I like dumb action) but looks pretty good!

Haven’t seen the last kingdom eitherlol
Yeah if you are not into the French and their revolutions etc Versailles (like the palace) can be a bit grandiose. But the Last Kingdom isn’t short on action or Viking brutalitiy and the actual battles were real. I don’t read much but it’s mmy favourite book series.

I think I’ll follow up on your killing eve recommendation.

If you're looking for a great show outside of the main stream one's (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead etc) -

Get around "Luther" if you haven't seen it. It's on Netflix and it stars Idris Elba who I reckon is a shoo-in as the next James Bond.

Quality watch.

Thanks mate. Was on the lookout for a new show to watch!

Have recently binged on You and finished that in not much time and also finished Shooter finally.

Binge watching The Office - can't get enough tbh
Seems right down my alley as I particularly enjoy sitcoms with around a dozen of my favourites on boxset and on regular rotation which include (The Simpsons, Cheers, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Frasier, Arrested Development, That 70's Show, Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens and Married with Children) but I've yet to get around to watching the Office.

Which version would you recommend to watch first? UK VS US

I loved the UK version. When the US version came out I thought it wouldn’t work. I have to admit, I was wrong as they did it very well. They are both great if you get the time.

Agree with Diabolical. I would watch the UK version first though - it was the original.

This is great to know as I’m into season 7 of the US version and haven’t started the UK so am looking forward to it now.

Definitely watch the UK first. It is elite.

After watching the UK one, you might find it hard to get through the first 3 or 4 US episodes, it took me a couple of goes to get through that barrier but once I did I never looked back as they just got funnier and funnier after they started to break away from copying the same sort of jokes as the UK version.

Sorry for the late response but I ended up watching the UK Office series on Netflix around Feb-March and really enjoyed it. Also over the past fortnight I've watched his other 2 series available on Netflix- After Life and Derek and would highly recommend both.
