Watched Triple Frontier lastnight...

Good soundtrack, but I think Isaacs was miss-cast...and it's difficult to empathise with characters who make some increasingly bad decisions in various situations, not what you would expect from decorated and highly trained ex-military (to my mind at least).

The ending also really didn't sit too well with me.

Watchable, but has a few flaws.
This

Enjoyed it though, passed a night.

I've just started watching The Order, 3 episodea in and enjoying it.
Easy watching, American teen based but enjoyable, college meets werewolf meets magic.

Dirty John - not really feeling it. Like watching the OC. The wife can't act for st (every time she is confronted about John's behaviour she just does this same confused/sad look). Eric Bana is decent but he can't carry the whole thing for me.

A lot of you seem to love it, so fair enough!

Triple Frontier

Meh. Decent enough. Rubbish CGI in places though.

Me and the Mrs absolutely loved this series, couldn't stop watching it until the end. Different folks etc

Pretty much my feelings on it so far (3 episodes in). Connie Britton was great in Friday Night Lights but I tend to agree her performance is weak in this.

Bana is good but I don't get the same sense of dread / he's not sinister enough, in the same way Alexander Skarsgard was in Big Little Lies for instance.

Triple Frontier. Typical 'murica Hoo-RAH! script. Well shot ( i read that this is one of the first to be shot in supe 6k). Scenery is beautiful but has already been mentioned they made some mistakes that those who perhaps were in these specialist forces would cringe at.

7 duffel bags out of 10 kilo's.

Also, the ending was just pish. All that effort for nothing..... or was it wink;);)

I don’t like him as a rule but Afterlife is fantastic TV. REALLY funny in places and incredibly heartfelt in others.

I don't like him either, disliked The Office and most of his other stuff, but being a miserable sod myself the premise of this appealed so thought I would give it a go, watched all 6 in one sitting, blubbing by the end

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann is now available, which I’m sure will generate a little bit of debate elsewhere on PH.

Whatever your feelings are about the McCanns, this documentary should not have been made without the consent of the family.
