That'd be the wedding episode then.

Wife is a fan of outlander and I;ve watched a few of them - Is a good series. Recently was up in Scotland so saw a few locations where it was filmed.

Well, Amazon's stupid decision today means I'll be watching less series come November. :facepalm:

Episode 7. I've given up on a number of shows recently after watching the 1st or 2nd episodes including Top of the Lake for example. Will keep on with Outlander until the bitter end however!

I persevered with both series of 'Top of the Lake' on iPlayer despite them being naff & sexist ( the second series is worse than the first with regards naffness ) but couldn't get into 'Outlander'

Third series of 'Vikings'.
Several characters killed off, one in a somewhat unusual manner ( unless you know the Norse sagas the series are based on )
Battle scenes which wouldn't look out of place in 'GofT' and Ivar the Boneless makes Ramsay Bolton look like a tree-hugger. :lol:
Oh, and the usual obligatory gratuitous sex scenes.

Sentiments echoed. The entire season as a whole, from the acting to the special effects and everything in between, was a masterclass far above much of the endless remakes, reboots, prequels, sequels, and other unimaginative average crud that seems to be churned out by Hollywood these days.

What's this about 2019, though? :hide:

Yep definitely 2019 for the last series - Void to be filled by Westworld which returns in 2018.

at the risk of more emojis causing themselves head injuries you probably won't be pleased to hear that there's a load of spin off series planned for the future after the main series finishes.

To be honest I was a bit underwhelmed with the season finale. The big reveal was something we all knew already anyway and there was only the one unexpected demise.

I just hope the final season doesn't just end up as a cgi slash fest against the whites. GOT has always been so much more than that and the politicking and dialogue have been just as big a part of why I love the show as all the sword wielding.

I feel quite deprived hearing all this talk about Game of Thrones having never seen it. However, I have invested in the box set of Fear the Walking Dead, having been a big fan of the Walking Dead. So far so good!

Tried 'Z Nation' yet ?
Despite being played more for comedy, in my opinion it's far better than 'FTWD' :biggrin:


On a different note...
Most of the way through Series 4 of 'Black Sails' ( just started episode 8 of 10 )
Continues it's usual theme of trying to kill people off in as many different ways as possible besides the usual shooting & stabbing/throat-cutting.....a particularly gratuitous keel-hauling and inventive use of a claw-hammer & cooper's mallet being amongst the most memorable.
Somewhat disappointingly they've pretty much given up on any semblance of historic accuracy when it comes to the real characters, so various ones are killed off when they shouldn't be, not killed off when they should be, or merely killed off in different ways to how they really were.
That said, it's still as entertaining as ever, just a shame that it's apparently going to be the last series.

Many thanks for your contribution to this topic, that's really useful to know.

Of course, you do appear to have misread the title of this topic : 'What are UKARians watching on TV?'

Well done....have a banana.
HTH.
:biggrin:


Edited to add...

Finished watching the last 2 episodes of 'Black Sails' -- as with the likes of 'HOW' & 'Ripper Street', it went out on a bit of a whimper.
It also seemed to have forgotten that it was supposed to be a prequel to 'Treasure Island', so lots of loose ends not tied up.

Oh, well.....series 2 of 'Preacher' likely to be next on my list, unless I decide to give 'The Tick' a go.

I've been enjoying Preacher series two although a couple of the later episodes do seem to be dragging the story a bit. However, still very amusing and some decent graphic violence still to be seen :grin:

Very much looking forward to the Punisher on Netflix soon, and X-Files coming back (although not sure when or what channel).

Shooter series 2 has been very enjoyable to date.

Started watching 'Ultimate Beastmaster' on Netflix. A bit like Ninja Warrior with a massive obstacle course, quite fun but the American presenters are a bit annoying. Produced by Sylvester Stallone and occasionally he does an introduction at the start of the programme.

Anyone been able to see the new series of Top Gear USA ? Any good ?

Have to admit I no longer bother with much in the way of terrestrial tv, mostly watch Netflix and Amazon now. Just started the new series of The Last Ship on Sky One, I kinda forgot what happened in the last series which probably shows what a lasting impression it made on me :grin:

Almost finished both seasons of FTWD now. Have to agree that it's not as good as TWD. Don't think that I'll bother with any subsequent seasons.
