To think the BBC has lost the plot ...

Just watching the first episode of Hard Sun. Complete crap, and not the first crap drama we've seen on the BBC recently.

Yet we've seen some fantastic original drama on Netflix.

Sad, sad, sad. Please BBC, sort yourself out.

I really enjoyed hard sun, me and DH binge watched over the last couple of weekends. I’ve heard a lot of people rave about it too.

EllenJanethickerknickers Wed 14-Feb-18 21:51:22

Oh, I liked it, too. Bit of a Line of Duty/Spooks/Survivors vibe.

MistyMinge Wed 14-Feb-18 21:53:36

I quite enjoyed Hard Sun. It wasn't the best drama ever, but it made a change from the usual crime dramas, and shite like Silent Witness.

Mcmafia was brilliant. I don't think the BBC deserve a total slating.

Dumbed-down sensationalist drama, for thickies.

ghostyslovesheets Wed 14-Feb-18 21:55:03

Yes I liked Hard Sun - it was a bit daft but enjoyable daftness

also love McMafia, The Fall, Line Of Duty etc

I think the BBC does good stuff on the whole

Right, so people tell you they like it, and that's your reply? hmm

(Not seen it myself, but that was rude!)

ghostyslovesheets Wed 14-Feb-18 21:56:15

oh sorry OP I see you posted an AIBU when what you really wanted was to throw insults around and argue ...

Collateral is shaping up. And the excellent Charles III last year. There’s lots of good stuff.

ghostyslovesheets Wed 14-Feb-18 21:57:39

oh yes Collateral was good - dying to know where the high art section is on Netflix though

curlywirely Wed 14-Feb-18 21:58:37

'Clique' was the last one we watched. That was shit too. Designed to shock, but intellectually well below par.

GrannyHeadology Wed 14-Feb-18 22:00:43

Well if you spot anything else on the beeb that us thickies might like please let me know, I’m always up for some dumbed-down drama that my little brain can handle

I like most BBC dramas but I found Hard Sun a bit far-fetched and simplistic. I thought Requiem was even poorer.

Collateral is good so far. Haven't watched McMafia yet.

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Wed 14-Feb-18 22:01:51

I'd say the BBC does drama very well, halfway through Hardsun & quite enjoying it, Requiem is also shaping up nicely along with Collateral-on that basis YABU.

curlywirely Wed 14-Feb-18 22:01:58

Don't get me wrong - I'm a big natural supporter of the BBC. Will always give it the benefit of the doubt. But it's just not measuring up. It's self conscious and over-pretentious, over-shocking, and underwhelming.

Yabu
I liked it
Yabu being for calling people thick cos they like something you don't

DumbledoresApprentice Wed 14-Feb-18 22:03:00

I liked Hard Sun. Why would everything you watch need to be intellectual? I also watched Altered Carbon on Netflix recently, it was at least as stupid as Hard Sun. I also enjoyed it less.

peachypips Wed 14-Feb-18 22:03:26

Cross post nofucking grin

Casmama Wed 14-Feb-18 22:04:18

Well aren’t you a charmer!
FWIW I enjoyed Hard Sun too.

curlywirely Wed 14-Feb-18 22:04:53

On Netflix, loved 'Alias Grace' and 'Stranger Things' and 'Series of Unfortunate Events'. Also loved 'The Handmaid's Tale' on C4.

Cebeebies is 616 on sky if you run out of things to watch.

DumbledoresApprentice Wed 14-Feb-18 22:05:39

Glad someone mentioned Requiem. I binge watched that over the weekend. It scared the crap out of me and whilst it may not be terribly intellectual it was really well acted and had me totally gripped.

Somersetter Wed 14-Feb-18 22:05:40

I thought it was awful too. Only watched the first episode. Just so far-fetched.

NoFuckingRoomOnMyBroom Wed 14-Feb-18 22:06:08

Ha ha Peachy-clearly we prefer differing dramas...
I'll not ask what you thought of Rellik 🤣

Alloftheboys Wed 14-Feb-18 22:06:32

Actually I think it's 614. Currently watching hard sun so can't check grin
