TBH, I found this to be rather hit and miss, I really enjoyed the storylines that involved characters from The Boys but the teen angst is similar to things that I've seen before.
I didn't even know that this existed, thanks for letting me know about it.

The Practice: The Candidate. Dylan Baker guest stars as a Senatorial candidate arrested for murder after a man, believed to be having an affair with his wife, is found shot to death in his marital bed. Baker claims mistaken self-defence, that he believed him to be an intruder attacking his wife, but neither he, his wife or his teenage daughter are telling the whole truth... This feature-length episode is a cracking start to season 6.

Watched the first episode of The Wire on Saturday I loved it. Took me a bit to take the main detective serious after watching him as the doctor in Brassic kept watching his eyes to see if he was looking at ladies knees

For my money, The Wire is one of the top five greatest TV shows ever made. Dominic West and Idris Elba have extremely convincing American accents and are brilliant as McNulty and Stringer Bell, respectively, and the supporting cast of actors like Frankie Faison, Deirdre Lovejoy, Wendell Pierce, Lance Reddick, Chris Bauer, Amy Ryan, Clarke Peters, and Michael K. Williams is extremely strong.

Because the five seasons have different focuses, from drug dealing to smuggling, the media to the education system, means it never becomes 'samey' or formulaic, and the writing, mostly by David Simon and Ed Burns, is superb: powerful, funny, and thought-provoking.

With two episodes to go i'm absolutely loving the first series of The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015).

Sean Bean plays Marlott, a London detective attempting to unravel why children keep turning up dead with various parts of their bodies removed and others attached in their place and why one corpse is made up of the body parts of eight missing children.

This is excellent. It takes the Frankenstein story and gives it a whole new twist incorporating the struggles of Victorian London giving the six part series a feel of Dickens, perhaps more so than Mary Shelley.

Bean is in great form at the top of a fine cast including Vanessa Kirby, Anna Maxwell Martin and Richie Campbell. It's gritty stuff and utterly compelling with it.

I did smile to myself when Marlott told another character he'd fought Napoleon at Waterloo. Could Marlott be Richard Sharpe in later life? He certainly looks like him.

I picked up this Blu-ray for a quid at the local Air Ambulance shop months and months ago. Glad i held off watching it as it's perfect Dickensian Christmas horror.
