Recent Televisionary

There are more TV shows than you can possibly watch in your lifetime. Yet should you wish to try, here are some that I loved and you will too.

Hunters. It's 1970s New York, and we follow a band of Nazi hunters led by Al Pacino. Has a very Tarantino feel to it.

Fleabag. Recommended by friends, I had no idea what this was going to actually be about. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is just great in every way. After binge watching both seasons I could literally watch her give those looks to the camera all day long.

The Mandalorian. Want to see Dave Filoni make one of the best seasons, not only of Star Wars content, but sci-fi in general?

The Clone Wars. Want to see Dave do that again? Season 7, especially the ending four part arc, probably the best Star Wars content I've seen since The Empire Strikes Back.

The Expanse. Speaking of best sci-fi shows of all time, this is really up there with Battlestar Galactica. Even the disappointing big bad in season four can't sway my love of this. Beltalowda.

The Man In The High Castle. Alternate history timeline. What if the Germans won World War II and the US became the American Reich?

    You've reminded me that I got to about episode 6 of Hunters and never finished it. Perhaps that's not a good sign…

    Fleabag is fantastic. Must watch the Amazon charity showing of the live show before it disappears at the end of the month. Only £4 in the UK to see it.

    Not splashed on Disney+ yet, but will do so for The Mandalorian at the very least at some point when I know I have time. Oddly, that's not right now!

    Love The Expanse.

    Never got past season one of this despite a good cast. Will go back at some point. Perhaps.

    I need to start Hunters. Looks really interesting. Man in the a High Castle always intrigued me but there’s too much to catch up on now. Otherwise the only one we share is The Mandalorian. Loved it although it stagnated a bit in the middle three episodes before kicking ass I’m again in the final two.

    The Mandalorian is fantastic. So well done. Everything about the show is great for any Star Wars fan.

    I've heard good things about Fleabag.
