I'm really enjoying The Duece too. Star Trek has also been very good so far. Nice to have a couple of decent new shows.

Whats the verdict on Electric Dreams so far? I've them both taped but not hand a chance to want them yet.

Watched The Orville and it looked pretty decent so far.
Enjoying them but they haven't made the same impact as say Black Mirror so far.
I think it's that the they're not as dark and the endings fall flat in comparison.

Star Trek has been very good I have to say. Incredibly promising.

Is there any link between it and the new movies or is it completely standalone?

Nothing to do with the movies. Its supposed to be a prequel to the Original series, set 10 or so years before Kirk and the boys started.

So weird to watch Star Trek and have everyone being total dicks to each other though. It's not the Roddenberry way.

Bake Off
I'm going to miss Julia. She had some great facial expressions, she was constantly pulling faces.
Delighted Liam got star baker, he's not the most competent of the bunch but he is very likeable.
Sophie or Steven to win I reckon.

Sophie will win it, imo. she's been in with a chance since week one. I get the feeling that Stacey will go next week. she's been very much on the edge of going for a few weeks now. Scouse girl could also be going.

Discovery ep.3
So Burnham and Spock are adopted siblings it seems. Wonder if he'll show up.
It's good, but not blowing me away. I don't need it to, but yeah.

Bullshit that Yan was kicked off. really should have been Stacey or Kate. they were both terrible this week.

Liam is going to be in the last three. he's hovering around the top for the last number of weeks and they have mentioned that he's improving. Possibly with Stephen and Sophie.

I thought that was a solid show. Decent cast, some well-written characters. Looking forward to the second season.

Mr. Robot is back.

Would like to hold off and binge watch the season.

That's not likely to happen though.

I watched the first episode and thought it was laughably bad.
