I just started watching “Generation Kill”. On Sky Atlantic but an HBO Films production. Enjoyed episode 1. Can’t speak for the rest but it seems a pretty good series.

Good mini-series, I remember someone putting it on my hard drive years ago, could've stretched it out a few more.seasons though.

Thanks may watch this.
Skarsgard (lead role) is a fine actor as good as his dad.

I've just watched Challenger The Final Journey, four part doco on Netflix, which was quite good/interesting.
Spoiler:
it explodes about a minute after lift-off
Next I have been recommended to watch The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty, a BBC three part doco. It's available on ABC iView.

Full Episode, 25 mn.
Just relax, light a doobie and enjoy.



There's a whole season of this available, thanks to New Zealand.

I just finished 'The Fall'.

It's quite old (2013-2016) and runs for 3 seasons. I thought it was brilliant. The whole story runs for the entire 3 seasons so you're going to have to stick with it. It is well worth it.

It is available on Netflix but, bizarrely, only season 1 & 2. I had to download season 3 from Pirate Bay.

Just watched a 3 part documentary ' Fear City : New York vs The Mafia ". Very interesting.
