Going back (if I may) to the debate about binge-watching a series and waiting each week for series, two members with different viewpoints, I absolutely get both points of views.
Take a programme like 24 hours in police custody in C4 or Unforgotten - when that is on, I look forward to C$ on Monday nights and being on Twitter when the programme is 'live' on TV. Plus I get home from work and say to myself 'Oh 24 hours is on tonight' and it must release some kind of endorphin, making me happy there is something to look forward too.
However, there are complete advantages to streaming too. If you're really into something, you can just continue to keep watching to your hearts content. For me, the issue with this is is that you aren't actually 'watching TV' and it all (for me anyway) merges into one. I can't tell series apart, I haven't got the time to process scenes/character development and most of all, I don't get to chat about a TV series with friends because everyone just says 'Have you watched? Are you watching?' but because at different points in storylines, the conversation(s) stall.
My sister wants me to watch The Office (US) and I'm in series 5. There are 10 series of this, plus 20 episodes in most series. It just runs back to back to back and it's hard to be invested because it all just merges into one with a feeling of, I'm going through the motions here. Is that what TV is meant to be? Aren't you meant to reflect on what you have watched?
Thanks for reading!

I think it only merges into one if you watch a long box set, lots of episodes in one go. Like something American. Because I’m used to multi-tasking, I probably do play with my phone or iPad too much whilst I’m watching tv. Dad often tells me off about it.

The key thing for me is wanting to watch something appealing for about the same length as a movie (anything between 2-3 hours). That makes individual episodes up to an hour not really worth it. Doesn’t matter what I’m watching. That also tends to mean I prefer dramas rather than docos or comedies or reality stuff.

What I hadn’t anticipated was people making an event of it (very much 80s style). Not just on here, a lot of people seem to be doing it. Smile

So I’ve just finished watching the last episode having watched one per week. I’ve actually really enjoyed having the next episode to look forward to and it’s been one of the few programmes where I’ve actually sat and watched it without looking at my phone etc.

As for the series itself - bloody amazing! Very emotional and thought provoking.

And the title made sense during the last episode. Of course the “sin” was how HIV and AIDS patients were viewed by the wider public; but how they were treated was a sin as well. Clever stuff.

Cant wait to watch it again!

Watched the last episode last night, too. Well written, well acted, moving and thought provoking. As a teenager in the 1990s. I remember the hatred directed towards our community and the fear - lost a friend to AIDS then.

Really enjoyed (if thats the correct way of putting it!) the whole mini-series.
Shame Ritchie had to die at the end, being my favourite character, although I guess that was inevitable...

Unfortunately, some of those attitudes are still here today.

Still can’t get over the fact that so many pos gay guys in 80s had to not only come out to their families once (that they’re gay), but twice (that they’re HIV+/AIDS) on the same day. When they’ve been admitted to hospital. And have a life expectancy in weeks and months.

Added to which, the gradual fading away of guys who “went home” to live with their families (“in disgrace”). Absolutely mind-blowing.

I watched this earlier - good little discussion with the cast and RTD.

One interesting nugget of info - Ritchie Tozer is named after Russell Tovey!

The panel with all the actors and writer moderated by Russell Tovey is great. As I watched the 5 episodes on HBO, I was reminded of several older films that covered the same period. One is based on the Broadway play, "Angels in America" that came out in the early oughts, 2003 I believe. An award winning play and film, it is beautifully done. Earlier, dealing with the first 10 years with men in NYC was "Longtime Companion" that takes place in the 80s, in the first decade of the plague as it was then often called. What is wonderful about "It's a Sin" is it revolves around a half dozen characters who share a house, problems, and attitudes, particularly being there to support one another. While it focuses on HIV/Aids, it is also a wonderful character study. Thanks to the actors and creators.
