I watched the latest episode of Killing Eve and couldn't see ant evidence of a plot or even a vague story line. I shall persist with it just in case it revives but I am not enjoying it.

Is it FOMO (fear of missing out)? Be brave - switch it off. :smile:

Possibly David, but it has been so good in the past. The producers deserve a chance, they have put a lot into it.

Caught up with The A Word last night, the acting in this is brilliant, especially from the young lad.

Most disillusioned with TV these days. Endless news reports or programme repeats.

Now you mention it - so do I, but the connection didn't occur to me when I read the title. I tried it after seeing mention here. I'm amazed it has been going for so long, seems this is the third 'season', and it's the first time I've taken a look.

Was that Eve walking down the middle of the road in backwoods Russia, with headphones on so she didn't hear the huge timber lorry and trailer coming, and it nearly ran her over? I doubt she has even read the Highway Code.

Not for me I'm afraid - bigly. :smile:

I agree Sue, never watched as much Youtube.... I shall stick with Killing Eve but I think they are working on a conceptual pay grade at least one division higher than mine. I've lost track of the plot if there ever was one.

We had never watched it before Stanley, but were advised to start at the beginning, which we did, it then becomes very watchable. I don't think it could be something to jump in part way, or dip in and out of. Try it from the beginning of series one.

Stick with it Stanley, I really enjoyed last nights. Only three quarters of an hour, and over in a flash so I must be enjoying it.

Thank God for Youtube! Even favourites like HIGNY aren't the same without audience participation and the news is struggling to find any way out of the Covid trap. I have virtually given up on it.

Not TV, Radio 4. Listen to the 15 minute programme aired at 05:45 this morning. I think it was called Legacy of War. A tear jerker but well worth listening to.

A new series of A House Through Time begins tonight at 9pm on BBC2. The last two have been really good.

I've got my outside jobs done, tidied the kitchen and I'm sat watching the Yorkshire Vet and waiting for A House Through Time. Looking forward to it!

Goes back to 1718 a fascinating time in England. I was perusing far too much potential family history stuff.
