Last night my wife and I started streaming -- via Amazon -- the BBC TV show "Catastrophe." 

It's up to season three, so we have a ways to go.

But so far, so good...

Finished season six of GAME OF THRONES. About to start season seven, which is currently airing on HBO, so I'll take my thoughts into the appropriate thread. 

"Battle of The Bastards" and "The Winds of Winter" might just be two of the most satisfying hours of television I've ever seen. Lots of payoffs to long-term plots and characters.

Think this counts as TV (even though it's a "film" on DVD), but watched Stephen King's IT.

It still stands up well, I feel. I care about the characters. The ending, well, bit anti-climatic, but I can't fault the build-up and the character-driven stuff.

I'm told the book is much better (most books tend to be). 2017 will be the year I read the book, I've made that vow.

Robbie,you are technically correct as IT was a tv mini-
series butchered into a film length.The book is SO much
better,you REALLY get to know and care about the
characters,definitely one of King`s best.

Waterstones is selling the book right now (not that it's ever been out of print) with a great new cover - I shall do it. 1,100+ pages seems daunting. Last time I did anything of that length was as a kid (LOTR). It may well take me more than a week to read it.

I feel old, given the mini-series is almost 30 years old!
