You've got 50% of your wish.....don't hold your breath for the other 50% though

Das Boot
No, not the original, the misnamed steaming great heap of manure which is the new version.
It can't decide whether it wants to be a U-Boat series or a new version of 'Secret Army' ( and it spent more time on the latter )
Lots of scenarios plagiarised from the original....heck, it seemed like they even went out of their way to get some actors who looked like the original ones.
Crap, implausible storylines, particularly where the few submarine-related bits are concerned......presumably whoever the writers are have never read any literature to do with submarine warfare in general and U-Boats in particular.
As is usual for recent series & films, you've got your obligatory 'strong' female characters ( who are, naturally, lesbians ) and all the men are evil rapists.

Unfortunately it looks like they'll be making a second series.

Succession - SKY series 1

Up to episode 3 - very funny, dark and clever.

Succession is fantastic, I'm on season 2, episode 3. Looking forward to the Dundee episode. Hoping for a Logan Roy/Bob Servant crossover!

The Mandalorian. A series about a Mandalorian Bounty Hunter based in the Star Wars Universe, around five years after RoTJ.

Four episodes in and it's been pretty good so far; much better than those crappy 'new' Star Wars films Disney have been churning out.

Recommended. :rock:

Not watched yet, but series 6 ( or 601, because it's another two-part series as per series 5 ) of 'Vikings' has now started on Amazon Prime :biggrin:

Supposed to be the last one set in the same time period ( 9th Century ).....future series are apparently set around 100 years later ( Harald Hardrada, William the Bastard & the Norman invasion )
