Draclvr, I absolutely loved HOTD, more so than The Rings of Power. And apparently we'll have a long wait for season 2.

I'm with you hagatha. House of the Dragon was so good and I did like The Rings of Power too. Peripheral has a lot of twists. I like it!

Oh, good. I'm glad Peripheral is entertaining.

I think I might watch the last season of Peaky Blinders next. I'm sorry that the wonderful actress Helen McCrory died and won't be in it. She was incredible.

After that I think I'll check out The Boys.

I love Peaky Blinders. Helen McCrory was awesome in Penny Dreadful. RIP hearts

Just started watching SAS: Rogue Heroes which is from the same stable as Peaky Blinders - looks quite promising and an interesting blend of music in the soundtrack! https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/drama/sas-rogue-heroes-bbc-soundtrack/

About to try The Devil's Hour on Amazon Prime Video: has anyone else seen that yet?

Just watch Enola Holmes 2 on Netflix. If you enjoyed the first movie you will like this one too.

The Devil's Hour turns out to be the most effectively spooky thriller we have seen in quite a while... nicely paced so 3 episodes in and we are still not sure where it is going! scared thumbsup

Watching the final season of Manifest on Netflix. They broke it down half this year and half next year. I don't like having to wait a whole year for the second half of a final season.

I will check out The Devils Hour Lex. It looks like my sort of thing.
I mentioned The Patient earlier. Having finished, it is excellent and brave dramatic tv.

Am certainly enjoying Devil's Hour. Many thanks for the tip smile

Got to the end and was a bit disappointed by the final episode but still thought it was well worth a watch.
Have just moved onto the most recent season of Hidden.

I'm still loving Peripheral and you all might want to try Mosquito Coast on Apple TV. Season two just started. smile

We just watched the movie made of the novel "Where the Crawdads Sing." It was quite good, but I kind of wish I hadn't already read the book!

I liked The Rings of Power too soot. it made me feel like I was watching a movie instead of a series.

I think I saw the Crawdads movie is on Netflix. I'll check it out Draclvr. thanks

For those of you who watched The Devil's Hour what did you think of Lucy's decision at the end? I love those shows where you are trying to figure out what is going on all the way through the series.

We did think that the end of The Devil's Hour could have been better rounded off, and I wasn't sure that it was an actual decision by Lucy rather than a manipulation by Gideon to get her back into her real life, but perhaps they have deliberately left it a bit unclear to allow for second season... catrub

I think I am in the manipulation camp as well and somehow the timelines have merged. But it isn't clear crazy
I liked the ambiguity, but could have done without so much exposition. It wouldn't have been easy though to get things to where they landed.
A season 2 would be intriguing.

I've just started to re-watch The Terror, on Amazon Prime. It's a fantastic adaptation of Dan Simmon's novel of the same name, a fictionalized version of the Franklin Expedition's doomed journey. It's intelligent, has a fantastic cast, and is wonderfully suspenseful and creepy.

The second season, which I have not seen, is a different storyline altogether.

After years I finally caught up with the last 3 seasons of Longmire that were originally only on Netflix. Great show.

The Terror is really good, and season 2 is well worth a watch also.
Its been a while since I watched it so it might have to be added to the 'do again' list.

I MUST watch The Terror! I have read the book twice and absolutely love it. Very excited as I did not even know it existed. Thank you, hagatha!

EDIT: Well, shucks. Each episode is $2.99 and it's not available on AMC any more.

Longmire was a great series... kind of a Yellowstone "lite!"

The Terror is on Amazon Prime here in Canada.

It's one of my very favourite Dan Simmons books. The first two Hyperion books are fantastic, too.

Edit: the series is very true to the book although the ending is a bit less ambiguous. It's a superb adaptation. Can you get a one-month Prime subscription just for that?
