I'm 3 episodes in and this is already putting me off. It's a shame as the rest is classic Bosch. Not sure if I will go all the way with this one if it carries on in the same vein.
I felt the same actually, took a bit to get in to it, but stick with it, it gets better as the series goes on. Never really been a fan of Maddie's character, still not in this, but the rest is OK, a few cameo's from other Bosch characters too. Currently eight episodes in and enjoying it.

Probably come up on here years ago but just started watching Sherlock tv series. I think i'll struggle
The idea of a modern sherlock is novel enough but watched first three episodes over last three nights and fell asleep during 2 & 3
Should've been a 1 hour thing

The American modern take on Holmes - Elementary, starring Johnny Le Miller - was surprisingly good. Much as I enjoyed Bandersnatch & Bilbo, Elementary was more consistently entertaining, I think.

i really enjoyed it. The daughter is not the best character/actor but the whole show is still class. Roll on more
Finished it last night, it really did get better after the first three episodes. Thoroughly enjoyed it, left on a cliff hanger though......


Just about to finish the new series of Borgen (Power & Glory). If you liked the original, you'll like the "reboot", it's a really good watch for Scandi drama fans. Now back to Stranger Things S4....

The Benedict Cumberbatch one?? That was incredible! Or are you talking about a different one?

Yeah that's the one (with Frodo etc) season 1ep 1 was good, ep2 was an almost identical outline to ep 1 and it kinda went down again in ep3
I'll give it another go though

(last night I tried season 1 of Cobra Kai for the first time, 4 episodes. Nice spoof, some fun lines but already thinking it should just have been a 90 minute movie... just googled it an there's 40 episodes :eek:... they can forget it)

Edit, of course its Bilbo not frodo :whistle:

I won't give any spoilers, but I do recall it gets more dramatic as it goes along. It quickly moved from cosy detective drama to espionage thriller once it gets going.
