New Curb is excellent. It was in danger of going stale - the last two/three series - and maybe the break did them well, or over-relying on Leon in 7th and 8th ; but this new one is brilliant and really back to its best. That may well be the five year break and missing them, but have not laughed out loud in a long, long time or as much as when watching CYE.

Funny as fuck. Although I was thinking to myself, it's all a bit Victor Meldrew in LA. haha. For me, it's the supporting cast. Funkhouser's dry delivery has me pissing me pants even before he speaks haha, oh and Richard Lewis is fucking hillarious ... I loved the one where he calls his new squeeze 'honey' ... as for Leon, tear that asshole Larry, rip it open! ha

I like those two the most out of the supporting cast especially Funkhouser with his hoarse throat. ''Richard Lewis : A Life In Pictures'' was superb, Larry ripping in to him.

I started watching the BBC (and Weinstein produced, I noticed) War and Peace from last year, mainly because it looked really pretty, and God, am I hooked. I might even read the book now. And it does look amazing too.
St. Petersburg looks fucking fantastic too. End-o is lucky to have that place on his doorstep. It suits the present Siberian conditions outside at the minute.
And the Yank actor who plays the main character does a really very good English accent, especially considering hes playing a Russian who speaks French as a first language.

Stuff I've watch so far and enjoyed

Walking Dead
Goliath
Man in the High Castle
Narcos

So anything in that sort of Vein that anyone would recommend. I got bored of Homeland and gave up, I also got bored of house of cards after about 2 episodes.

Watching the documentary series 'The Keepers' on Netflix.
It's hard not to want to kill after watching it.

Bunch of fucking cunt bastards.
