It's currently on Fox TV, F, which is on sky, Now TV, Virgin and Talk Talkl;  I only heard of it in passing, when someone earlier this year was slagging it off and a Star Trek enthusiast told them to go away, since the series was proving much better than anyone anticipated.  I suspect having McFarlane at the helm hasn't helped, as he's known mainly for Family Guy, which a lot don't like, but watching it I was genuinely surprised at just how good it is.

Except.... I LOVE Family Guy.

Okay....  But you'll probably still enjoy The Orville.

Currently working our way through Vikings. It's been very good, especially the raid on Paris in season 3.

I enjoyed Vikings, and the raid you mentioned, it never crossed my mind that they attacked cities like Paris,   just the usual pillaging around Britain and Ireland.

Just finished the first season of The haunting of Hill House. If you like spooky stuff, then it’s well worth watching.

A curious comedy started a year or so ago and I watched it, for need of something better to do, until eventually I was drawn into it. It's only 13 episodes in length, and the second season proves even better than the first - unusual in US comedy series.

The show is called The Good Place and if you fancy trying it, best not to look up what wiki says about it. It's a rare item, scoring 100% on various critics' sites, including Rotten Tomatoes, and there are almost no laugh-out-loud moments.  What it does do, however, is explore ethics, people, perceptions and good vs evil.  It's on channel 4, I think (or 5, it may be) and it's definitely from the quirky stable, so you may find yourselves watching the first 10 episodes with a mild feeling of bemusement. But it's actually turned out (for me, anyway) a great deal better than I imagined it would.

Certainly  worth watching.

I caught bits of a programme on BBC Wales last night " Tudur's Flashback holiday's " quite a lot of clips from the 50/60s, showing Conwy, Llandudno and I think Col.Bay, available on BBCiplayer for a short time.

I am watching channel 4's new series "Call the cops" at the moment, and it is very different to the expected police action, chases etc. it is centered on the control room, we all know about budget cuts, and less police on the streets, this program is showing the continual mental strain involved in prioritising  which job to deal with, an example from last night, the 13 year old threatening to jump off a bridge or the 14 year old about to stab his father,........ and having to live with the consequences of making the wrong call.

A bit of a local slant re above Police priorities...................  ref DP

“But we don’t police speed anything like we used to 10 years ago or before that, yet we still get the old “police only catch speeders.”

“You will rarely see a police officer standing out with a speed camera as we simply don’t have the time to do that nowadays with so many complex mental health and welfare needs to deal with.

“There were days when we spent all our days on crime but we are now dealing with so many more social issues than in years gone by.”

What an eye opener to see how stretched the force is.
The question is how have we allowed it to happen  ?

The PM and his party have allowed this situation to happen. How long will it take train all the new police officers ?
As for the Brexit idea of our own fishing waters. With only 4 fishery patrol boats how are we going to police the area.
 The whole thing is a joke. Not a funny one !
