Thought I'd revive this as there are two decent things up right now.

The Way - "a three-part British television series, created by James Graham, Michael Sheen and Adam Curtis, with Sheen directing from a Graham script. The series is set in the 2020s and follows the Driscoll family as they attempt to flee the United Kingdom, which has descended into anti-Welsh civil conflict following riots in Port Talbot." (my bold) - this has the right-wing media absolutely furious for some reason, this is basically why I'm watching it (plus Adam Curtis helped make it, and you really can tell) - I am just half an episode in so far, so probably not time for thoughts yet.

Boarders - "comedy-drama" about five poor black kids being given scholarships to go to a private school, it is dark and unfunny and weird, which is exactly the way I like my comedy, also relentlessly grim picture of private school culture so far.

Both of these are on the BBC.

two weeks pass...

Anyone else watched/watching 'The Dry' on itv? First series just finished on regular TV and second is up on itvx now. Loved the first series and am a couple of episodes into the 2nd and the standard has been maintained. I think off the back of reading some marian Keyes I was well disposed to some ultra snarky Irish family with a v funny look at a serious topic business. The dad is great and the conversation where he apologies to his surviving son about not being the father he was to him that he managed to be to his deceased son was incredible. Siobhan Cullen is great as Caroline tho my opinion is probably clouded by the fact that I massively fancy her.

We finished the Dry when it was on RTÉ via VPN, seconding the recommendation.
