Just heard the news that Gary Shandling died a few days ago. If anyone remembers he created and starred in the TV show Larry Sanders Show (a show about spoof a American chat show ). It was ahead of its time. Brilliantly observed, deep with irony and belly achingly funny.  Another sad loss in 2016.

I think he said that at his funeral he wanted someone dressed as a boxing referee to exclaim " he's not getting up" as they counted him out.

Very funny man.

American Crime Story (mentioned recently on another thread).  In a way I am really glad I did so much to avoid listening to OJ story back when it was non-stop news.  This version is so much more entertaining and interesting.

Is anyone watching "The Night Manager" Sunday nights BBC 1. Excellent.

 

 Outstanding. Because of the way they scheuled the show here, I feel like I've watched it 3 times already! Not sure about the ending, tbh,which I thought was just a tad convenient/soft, but otherwise excellent.

I've just discovered 'Happy Valley' (thanks to Dwmh mentioning it) which I'd completely overlooked before (I thought it was another 'Eastenders'!) - early days for me, but it really looks promising. I'm also catching up with 'Vera', which I find compelling for both the story lines, and the characterisations.

Happy Valley 1 is outstanding right from the first scene.

Happy Valley 2 doesn't really get started until episode 2 - or at least spends the whole of episode 1 reminding you of the old characters and introducing the new ones.

Looking forward to HV3 but it might be a long wait I gather.

HV is of course Last Tango in Halifax with the 90% character stories and humour,  10% dark side, reversed.

Line of Duty.  Just caught up with this.  Excellent stuff.  Mostly a behind the scenes Police story about anti-corruption.  Occasional acts of violence to add spice, though I must admit they can be a bit corny & over the top.

Seriously good though overall.
