    Glad you enjoyed... my missus and step daughter did too, I just thought it seemed a bit 'cheap' when compared to other HBO genre output like GoT & West World. I will persevere though as I have some faith it'll come good.

    really? I watched the first 5 episodes, but it didn’t pull me in as I wanted to. Mostly because I can’t see April Bowlby play any other role than Candy in two and a half men.

    Just finished the 4th series of Better Call Saul. It was good again without bring great.


    Negatives IMO is they spend too much time with the incredible sulk AKA Mike. Walter White killing him was one of my highlights from Breaking Bad.


    Speaking of breaking bad. Anyone think it was a bit silly to kill off Walter White? I mean, imagine if he was still in hiding and they decided to make a new series next year. It would be the TV highlight of the year IMO.

    Nah, the whole point of BB was the story of WW and how he turns bad, redeems himself, provides for his family, but ultimately pays for it with his life.

    He ultimately accomplishes what he set out to do ie provide for his family after this death. That was his story arc complete.

    Having him survive and on the run again would be pointless IMO. He chose to come back from New Hampshire to take his revenge, rather than waiting to die in that cabin.

    Watched Paul Rudd' Living with yourself yoke on Netflix. Interesting concept but I didn't like the execution, the characters aren't well thought out or believable at all at all.

    Unbelievable on Netflix was very good, just get through the first ep or two as they could be a little depressing for some. When it gets going though it’s a more than decent detective true story.

    As this is the general TV thread, not just upcoming shows.

    Just watched the second ep of Watchmen and enjoyed it. Still seemed to have a bit of a ‘cheap’ looking production and some of the lines were a little melodramatic in places but the over-arching story is beginning to emerge and I’m consequently beginning to get intrigued. Looking forward to next week.

    They've just been dropped from the star wars movies they were supposed to be making,
    I imagine Netflix is looking through that $200m contract too.

    Pretty impressive to go from running one of the most popular TV shows of all time to tanking your career off of the back of one season/interview

    A very well known theory for over a decade beforehand.
    Yes, they guessed it, but I don't think that's what landed them the job, just Martin's assistance.

    Apparently the first GoT spin-off (the one that had a pilot shoot over the summer starring Naomi Watts and provisionally titled The Long Night) has been cancelled by HBO execs. They have green lit another spin off provisionally titled House of the Dragon though, about the forming of House Targaryen.

    Something that i will be watching that will start on Netflix probably in December, is The Witcher, with Henry Cavill. Really looking forward to that one.

    The Mandalorian is starting on 12 November. Should be really good.

    Edit: Edited for accuracy.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about the expanse but struggled to get into it... think I left it at around episode 7/8 in season 1. How does seasons 2 & 3 compare to 1 in your opinion?
