Just gone through first series of Billions and fucking loved it, Damien Lewis really is a top notch actor.

Watched some French/British series called Spotless recently too and definitely worth a watch just for the tits on show.

Started on Ray Donovan today so will get back to you.

Any tips or recommendations?

Jon Voight plays being a horrible c**t with such great aplomb.

Both series of True Detective make for great viewing if you haven't seen them.

The first series is darker and perhaps more powerful, with some superb acting from both McConaughey and Harrison. Keeps you guessing all the way through, and just about every episode is like a mini film. Plenty of hairs on the back of the neck moments.

I didn't find the second series to be quite on a par, but then it's a more familiar gangster type of plot so I didn't find myself saying "there's some fucking weird shit going on" as much as I did watching series one. Still excellent though and got to be an 8-9/10.

Films wise I watched Sicario recently. Good film. Again, about the dark side of America.  

That's a negative ... and right now I need two positives: one to cancel out the negative ... and one just so I've got a positive

If you watch them I'd be interested to know what you thought.

Well worth a watch pal. I also echo Dogtown's recommendation of True Detective especially the first series.

I caught one episode of that, somewhere in the middle I guess, seemed pretty good. Decided to wait and watch the whole box set, which you've now reminded me to do.

Ray Donovan is very good. Jon Voight is fantastic and the character he plays is too. Eddie Marsan, who plays Ray's brother Terry, is one of the best actors on the planet imo.
I seen him in a mini series a few years ago and he played a bookish type character and he seemed 20 years older than he is, thoroughly convincing. In this he's a grizzled ex-fighter, in a lot of pain and again, is thoroughly convincing. Same in anything else I've seen him in.

Anyone who has never seen 'Peaky Blinders' needs to get watching it now. From the start of course. Set post WW1 in Birmingham, the Peaky Blinders, having returned from fighting in the trenches, were a gang of semi gypsy like gangsters, involved in illegal bookmaking and other crimes. Great series (I've not got round to watching series 3 yet) and the theme tune is superb.

Ray Donovan is ace.

Try La Serie Gomorrah, Bosch, The Man In Tje High Castle (last two on amazon prime)

a little older, The Shield and Deadwood are amongst the best TV ever.
