TV Show Discussion Thread

The main forum where you can talk about the festival - from the line-ups to camping advice and everything in between. Also forum for generally chatting and talking about things.
I watched "Travelers" on Netflix over the last couple of weeks. It's not bad. Sci Fi thing about people from the future coming back and taking over the bodies/lives of people who are about to die to make changes to the past to save their future.

Bit silly but watchable.

That's 3 unique ideas with the musical ep, sitcom ep and this ep, 2/3 being a decent hit :thumbs:

I havent seen making a murderer so a lot of that episode went over my head. I knew from the intro that's what was being referenced but I assume there was a lot of it I didn't get.

Not quite,
they take over the same body in the same time. Rather than jumping about different bodies and times. I maybe didn't make that quite clear!

It's not exactly the most cerebral show, but sometimes you need that

Yeah I got the Jinx stuff, not that it was really funny, but the MAM stuff was a little lost on me.

Ha Rosie O'Donnell wants to play Steve Bannon on SNL.

That would be gold.

tbh I've never been that gone on Alec Baldwin's Trump.

Baldwin is lucky because he doesn't have to do much.

Its a pity that at a time when SNL is doing some decent satire and is certainly getting a lot of hype from it that Weekend Update is easily the worst its been since I started watching

I've been waiting since before Xmas for a few people to tell me that show is good before I touch it. Doesn't look like it's gonna happen

Racing through The Good Place at the moment. Very average. Just curious how the season ends based on people say they do something clever or interesting

Finished The Good Place. It's fine and all. Like I'll probably continue watching it, but like Last Man on Earth, I wouldn't be recommending it to anyone

Don't suppose it would be possible for The OA to just remove all that movements nonsense from future episodes. They probably have to commit to that now... shame, I quite like the show bar that one very integral cringey flaw.

First episode of Legion went out last night, hope it's decent.
