That’s all six seasons of Community up on Netflix now. 

I got as far as the third season before it was removed from All 4 a couple of months ago so looking forward to catching the rest of it.

The absolute state of that funeral on Tiger King BTW. 

Joe talking about the guy rubbing his balls on his face, singing his own song for promotion and the mum looking like she was out her face on meth. 

No righters the lot of them.

Finished Sunderland Til I Die Season Two. Agree that it's not quite as enjoyable as the first season, but it's always nice to see disappointed Mackems and imagine Andy Dawson crying into his blue drink on the train home.

Chevy Chase ruined Community for me.

An absolutely rancid character. Not even Alison Brie could save it.

Not entirely sure you can sit there and slate the entire Sunderland fanbase for being hypocritical knobs when the documentary itself only features about 15 of them in total. In general, they are a good set of fans and to average 30,000 in League One when you can't beat Accrington Stanley is pretty decent regardless of the club.

Charlie Methven outs himself as an absolute whopper though. FWIW, he is absolutely wrong about the stadium music as well. Having been to the SoL a couple of times, I can honestly say that Dance of the Knights (The Apprentice tune) was an incredible choice of music to build up to kick off. Why you would can that in favour of making it like 'a rave in Ibiza', I just cannot understand.

I sat watched the first episode of the first series last night, having never heard of this documentary before.

 

It's utterly laughable how their fans reacted to getting a telling from Celtic in pre season. A friendly FFS, and some of them are utterly frothing at the mouth. Another case of English football underestimating our best side IMO.

Was also delightful to briefly see Dorus de Vries!

We see far more than 15 shouting acid abuse from the stands throughout. They come across as a completely odious bunch. That they support in numbers is irrelevant. The OF get tens of thousands every home game as well.

Just started season two of Sunderland till I die, already this Charlie Methven is an absolute w**k.  The state of his presentation at the very start just screams business w**k with arrogance and a bunch of nonsense cliches and buzzwords

You'll realise as the programme goes on that a lot of that foaming at the mouth stuff was actually probably from a different game entirely. For all the praise it gets about being a brilliant documentary, which it is, the editing is very poor in parts e.g. Sunderland miss a chance away at Brentford and then it shows the fans with their head in their hands at the SoL

St Johnstone had beaten their first team 3-0 a week previous to that game as well. They were absolute shite.

Safe is by the same writer as The Stranger.

The Celtic game pissed me off too. I actually remember seeing the result on livescore at the time and thinking it was impressive to beat a just relegated Barclays team 5-0.

But when you actually see it on the first episode of series 1, you kind of wonder how Celtic didn't score more. Sunderland were a team of complete jobbers.  Celtic had superior players in every position and 6 months earlier had drawn with Man City home and away in the CL. 

Celtic were always going to absolutely beast them.

Tiger King is like the hillbilly version of Sergio Leone's  Once Upon a Time in America. It's like if you took all the weird bits from all the Louis Theroux's documentaries and crammed them into one show. Unintentionally hilarious stuff, lost it with Joe's music video about Carol killing her husband, he's a master shit poster ahead of his time.

If you weren’t already aware Joe Exotic did feature in a Louis Theroux documentary about 10 years ago. Worth a watch.

Sunderland till I die - remember why I hate Sunderland. Wasn’t as behind the scenes as series one but still enjoyable.

Also binged watched the stranger today, really enjoyed it although thought last episode wasn’t that great.

Would have been an awkward one with Will Grigg if Jack Ross was still there and heard that phone call
