Some serious talent all round in that. Could be amazing.

David Simons new show is getting good reviews too. Looking forward to that.

Bojack - finished the season spoiler
did they use a fuck at all in that season?

Was a nice smiley moment at the end, even if most of the episode wasn't smiley. Especially after some of the brutal endings that came before, especially Princess Caroline's imagining her future grandchild 😢
Also, id highly recommend The Deuce after watching the pilot. Seems like it'll be a very strong show, as would be expected from something David Simon makes

New South Park was fine, but also had one of my favourite moments ever

i'm watching the Netflix Marvel programmes at the moment. Finally finished Jessica Jones last week and were motoring through Luke Cage.

i'm liking it. it's got a 70s feel to it..... and a sort of kung fu film feel to it too....?

This twitter feed just started last week and its brilliant. Some disgruntled RTE producer dishing all the dirt.

Star Trek: Discovery is on Netflix. First 2 eps.

Couldn't resist, watch the first 10mins or so this morning. Seems pretty decent. Great to have it new Trek anyway, can't be any worse than Enterprise.

I thought the second series of Enterprise was really good, the first just killed it though, couldnt get the viewers.
Looking forward to Discovery. Cant believe they changed the Kilngons again though

Halt and Catch Fire
New season is covering the search engine wars. Finding it hard to give a shit about the characters anymore.

Really enjoyed Star Trek Discovery then. Was optimistic, but didn't have high hopes.

Could get real nitpicky about some parts of it, like some of the technology and abilities they have would be quite anachronistic, but like I wouldn't let somethign like that spoil the enjoyment.

Love the opening credits. And for all the talk about the new Klingons, it's done a really good job of depicting them as an alien society, with the emphasis on alien.
Glad Michelle Yeoh's character croaked it, she was a bit of a weak link.

Interesting that the double ep was a bit of a prologue; I wonder where it'll go now. Like will it skip a couple of years to when "Michael" ( :lol: ) gets out of prison, and will we see a bit of normal life in Starfleet amid the running storyline.

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.

Watched the 1st 4 episodes of American Vandal. Really enjoying it. Cracking me up the whole time. Making a Murder, Serial, The Jinx meets Dick vandalism


Also been really impressed with the Deuce. Can't get enough of it

No more Rick and Morty for a long while now though 🙁
