Sure there used to be a thread covering all things telly but can't find it. Anyway, tell us what you're watching, any recommendations, looking forward to or ones to avoid, even rate them out of 10 like in the film thread if that floats your boat.

I'm currently half way through bodyguard and it's pretty good, quite tense with a few twists to come I think so 8.5/10

Also got killing eve lined up which I've heard good things about

Bodyguard is worth watching but I much preferred Line of Duty (same writer).

Taskmaster on Dave.

5 Comedians get given a series of stupid/silly tasks and Greg Davies awards them points depending on how well they completed them. I didn't watch the first few series because I thought it would be carp but actually very funny. Completely stupid/mindless/braindead fun but I find you need that every now and again.

Can catch up all series on demand/catch up TV

Maniac. Participants in a drug trial start to perceive a different reality, and believe that they are on a secret mission. Three episodes in and I have no clue what is going on, good stuff though.

also,

Better Call Saul. Started off as a prequel to Breaking Bad, but has definitely grown into a world of its own. The only programme that I make a point of watching as soon as new episodes 'land'. Just brilliant.

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Killing Eve..Available on the BBC iPlayer,watched 5 episodes(of 8) on the spin yesterday.It must be good if I can stay by the TV without nodding off for that long.

Brief synopsis,MI5 officer & a serial hit woman,who’s paths cross,fast paced & a bit of humour.Well worth a download & watch.

Yep, excellent show. Intelligent and well written.

The latest series of the walking dead starting on Monday, I really hope that they've pulled out all the stops as I'm not sure I can continue to watch this if it's as bad as it has been

Wasn't sure about the first episode of Dr Who Takes awhile to get use to a new doctor I suppose.

Watching The Man in the High Castle season 3 which is really, really good, Watched Dr Who and not overly impressed, Think because they have a female lead they've decided to over hype it and because its a woman as the Doctor then we MUST like it, It seems to be not as good IMO but I'll give it time

Taskmaster is the only thing, other than sport, that I purposely sit down to watch. Anything else I see is usually just clicking on the telly through boredom.

Watched Last Chance Lawyer on BBC2 last night and although I rarely follow tv series I shall be watching the rest of this one. Anybody else see it?

To be fair, you were probably already sitting. In the vicinity of cheese.

Initially I was disappointed with this year's crop of 'celebs' on TM, but it's actually been pretty good. About to watch Ep. 7.

Making a murder season 2 starts tomorrow on Netflix, and I'm absolutely gassed about it. Can't wait.

Is it any good? We watched the trailer for it and stuck it on the list - I'll probably be the same as Mrs 70, I'll need a cheerfulness break after 2 or 3 episodes.

We just started with The Frankenstein Chronicles. Sean Bean, scruffy old London town, bow street runners, vagrants, vagabonds and murders. Pretty decent if you like that kind of thing (and don't mind the main character sporting a broad Yorkshire accent that almost definitely would not have been present in London society at that time - personally I have to say though, I much prefer that to the alternative of our Sean putting on a **** Van Dyke style "Allo Maary Poppeens" fake cockney.)

I'm enjoying it, has taken the 2 episodes to work out who's who, a fair amount of jumpy moments which for the most part you can see coming but still sends the shivers

I've enjoyed GBBO. Despite some wobbles in recent rounds, the right winner was chosen.
