Excellent binged S1-3 last year and loved it - that's my evening planned for the next few days then!

Where are people watching it out of interest? Prime seems to have it if you buy a further "Arrow TV" pass, unsure of where else other than torrent or similar.

Patricizia has definitely got that indignant look ... I suppose they realistically portray the interior of Rich Italian folks homes .. but it's not a style I like.

Italian sky folks have this in 4K HLG, and given the many dark scenes I wonder if that would improve PQ further if they have the bitrate (unlike got)

Agreed, it's utterly vile and can't understand the love for it. It's been a staple from day 1 though, all the interiors have been horrid with the rich folks in Gomorra.

My assumption is that it's a bit like when you see the homes of folk who've won the lottery, put Georgian pillars on their Council house and filled it with everything gold plated or leopard printed from the Argos catalogue. Or maybe I'm revealing my own fantasies here. :)

The Italians have a very long history of over the top historical decor to drawn their rich-fantasies on, from Roman Empire through the Venetian Empire and up to recent excesses with Berlusconi and bunga bunga. Gomorra is probably a bit tame by those standards.

Or maybe it's just an attempt to counterbalance the ugliness of the rest of their lives outside their front doors? I always need antidepressants after watching a series, and I'm not really in any hurry to watch this one. I want to, obviously, but I'll wait until there's something else on NowTV that I want to watch. Of course by then Gomorra will probably have gone. C'est la streaming vie... or whatever the equivalent Italian version of that would be. Que series, sera maybe.

Well, if it wasn't Spanish... how did I think that was Italian right up to the point where I just got a sneaky feeling and did a bit of fact checking? I blame it on Doris Day singing with an Italian-ish accent.

Oh-well finished gommora ..(being removed from nowtv in ~10days so needed to move)
good but not as good as previous series ... Patrizia's pouting is getting to me - whats going on behind the eyes.

did wonder if in organized crim,e female bosses have equal pay/representation to male ones ... before its time - an example to all?

Nothing left on nowtv, now - so have cancelled that until walking dead when i may renew
