I just decided to try this series and I have made it through one season and I’m about to get a few episodes into season 2 and I´m starting to wonder - why bother? I feel like I´ve seen absolutely everything before. 50 Cent brings a nice menace to it though, so maybe …
Hmmm. I really, really wanted to LOVE this one. I watched every one of course - within a week, but it felt more like munching compulsively on a box of salty popcorn rather than, say, sipping a glass of good wine. And of course nothing like a good box of popcorn every once in a while, but sometimes you feel a bit guilty afterwards, like you just did something that wasn´t exactly “healthy” for you. But I do look forward to season 2.
It´s been out for a while, I know. But I just went and watched Season 1 again because it´s soooo damn good. The Mad Men feel of being taken back to a time, to a distinct history. And for me, it´s Bill Tench, not Holden Ford, who steals the show. Edmund is my favorite serial killer since Lecter.
For those in Norway - Heksejakt.
Heksejakt is incredible. I love good Norwegian tv. Next episode, please!
For those who do not mind subtitles or speak Italian - Gomorrah.
Not for the faint of heart and quietly gripping. The series is based on the tell-all true-life bestseller by Roberto Saviano, a journalist who now lives under police protection in the US because of threats from one of the Camorra cartels. It´s bleak. It´s shot well. The background music works well. Suddenly I have devoured 3 seasons as if hypnotized. This one is highly recommended.
Debating between Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (why not an honest to god movie every once in a while) and Westworld, because my wife has not seen it yet.
