Binge Viewing

Have been flying all over the place recently (including Europe / Africa / Middle East – Tunis / Rome / Kuwait in a day last week!!) and have been media bingeing on flights.  Have been enjoying:
·       Cardinal
    A gritty detective series set in Algonquin Bay, Canada.  Two series so far, a third being shot.
·       Goliath
    Via Amazon Prime.  Two series with one of my favourites – Billy Bob Thornton, enjoying himself as burnt out LA lawyer Billy McBride.  Shot in one of my favourite Santa Monica dive bars – Chez Jay.
·       Bancroft
    A four-part ITV drama, a bit of a poor man’s Line of Duty (but worth the effort).  Series One a cliff-hanger.  Season Two in production.
·       Strike
        Cormoran Strike, an injured war veteran turned P.I. in London.  Complex and clever.

And the best movie I’ve seen this year, on Netflix, Operation Finale.  Ben Kingsley – the true story of Israel’s capture of Adolf Eichmann.
