Last season of Lucifer dropped on Netflix but I haven't watched it yet.

I've been watching a ton of English-subtitled Asian shows in Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin. [Nothing in Cantonese, yet.]
Asian chicks are hot.


Just looking, though. No need for an emergency Viagra delivery, unfortunately.
Although I have to pick up some shirts at the Korean laundry this week and could be tempted there.
Problem is, just I'll be tempted. Mrs. Park won't be.


What were we talking about again?

The good thing about watching foreign language films on Netflix is that if they really stink, you can't tell.

They're not all Asian. I watched one Danish TV series about a libidinous middle aged teacher.
The kids called her by her first name. No uniforms or dress code. Very casual.
I 've never been to Denmark.
I'd like them, I'm sure, but they'd think that I was a stuffed shirt.
My daughter says it's a cool place. But she could have been referencing the weather--I don't know.

I've watched some UK shows as well, but they're in English so if I can make out the regional accents,
I'm unfortunately subjected to knowing what's going on.

Looking forward to the Night Stalker with Martin Clunes starting next week. The first series they did on Levi Bellfield was absolutely brilliant and gripping.

Also demonstrates how great an actor Martin Clunes is bearing in mind he can go from Doc Martin to the detective. And he seems a genuinely cheery chap in real life.

Watched a few episodes of Lucifer last night.

Is the actor Tom Ellis well known in the UK?
He's a good pianist / singer, too.
He was in a comedy show 'Miranda' which was a big deal for a while. I suspect that got him his break in Lucifer (big money in US shows (y)). He isn't a big name here but if he was on a chat show a good number would know his face from his Miranda days.

Think you should have put the word “Comedy” in quotes as to this day I have not laughed once watching it. (Wife thinks it’s hilarious though!)

Ha ha, you are right. We also have the same split in our house. I found it as funny as getting my wisdom teeth out, my wife liked it, but I didn't want to confuse matters for Boomer :LOL:.

Likely that was Rita. Thoroughly enjoyed it

I think you need to put quotation marks around "comedy" in that statement.

Read the next post.. fade and die agrees

Don't blame him. It was / is awful

She was a good back up side comedy in not going out

She is not a lead comic

And for those who have missed it - the first three episodes of Miranda just happen to be on W (or W+1) this evening…👍😂

There is a very definite male / female split on miranda. I'm with you, not at all funny, but she is undeniably popular with other women 🤷‍♂️

Then a lot of women don't find Ricky Gervais or Jimmy Carr funny.. until afterlife with the former then he gets so much butt licking on twitter "oh never liked you before but wow" he has always been that funny.. just people couldn't look past it was "him"

Ha ha, he is another alongside Miranda for me, never made me laugh. Plenty of people work for both sexes, some tend to appeal to one side more than others. No harm in any of that.
