    It's a really good show all round. From seasons 1-3. It's consistently good.

    From the Expanse. To me, one of the most beautiful moments in television.

    New Witcher trailer is sick! He nailed Geralts voice! I never read the books but I played all 3 games and loved them all (Though 2 was a bit worse than the rest). Quite amped for it after GOT s8 got me so down.

    Still not sure what's going on in Watchmen, but still enjoying it.
    Appears to not be a 'Who dunnit', more a 'what the hell is it?'.

    Been rewatching Russell Brand's ponderland and it's genuinely hilarious

    Not a fan of his standup but ponderland is incredible

    Just noticed that season 2 of Jack Ryan is out on Amazon so will probably start that today - distraction from the rugby.
    Loved the first season so hoping it's just as good.

    I’ll happily go the illegal route for the Disney+ shows guilt-free, as I’m comfortable in the knowledge I’ll be signing up day one ‘when’ it becomes available in the UK.

    Finished this last night,

    It was decent but not a patch on the first one.
    Bit too "hollywood" (TV shows often lose their realism as they go on) and some of the writing was pretty lame/rushed:
    The bloodthirsty mercenary just randomly forgiving/being mates with Ryan after he'd gotten his finger cut off...yeah right.
    And the Senator being the bad guy at the end, after literally zero build up or anything - it was just crap writing. If they'd have just left it being the Venezuelan president as being the big bad guy it would have been fine, but 15mins before the end of the season they're like "Oh yeah also there's an american involved" so I was trying to think of any American that's been in the season and was thinking "If they randomly make the senator a baddy it's gonna be so terrible". Low and behold...

    Agreed, did the books justice, unlike the awful 2006(?) film.

    Yeah, I think it comes down to the fact that book adaptations are just better suited to a 8-12 episode tv shows than a film (now that TV has the financial clout to sport luxurious production values). The film version just had to squeeze so much stuff into 2hrs that loads of story got cut and what was left still felt like a whistle-stop tour.

    What with the all-out TV war (Netflix vs Amazon vs Disney+ vs HBO Max vs Apple TV) the quality of TV (already high) is going to be stratospheric in the next 5-10 years.

    I know it's cool to hate on Rick and Morty but the new season started on Sunday and it was pretty good

    Watched the first two eps of The Mandalorian... it’s not quite what I was expecting but I’m enjoying it. The concept art that runs during the end credits of each episode is gorgeous.
