    Re my post above – don’t watch Spotless! The series ends on a cliffhanger and they didn’t get a 2nd series made. Leaves it feeling kind of flat. 😕

    On E4 of Fallout and it’s fun so far. some amazing visual FX interspersed with sequences that wouldn’t look out of place in Blake 7, eg the titan flying over the scrapyard and the gulper/squire attack.

    Also watching The Dropout about the deluded fraudster Elizabeth Holmes and her company Theranos. Wow, she’s turns into a real nasty piece of work. Can’t believe she managed to string so many people along, including the Board, for so many years.

    Did you get the same? Curious to see how many ads there are, and if it’s watchable.

    That’s the subscription I have. Last time we had a 6 episode binge, there were about two adverts across the 6 episodes @20-30 seconds each

    In the Land of Saints and Sinners (2023)

    Irish crime / terrorism film. Top Irish cast and Liam Neeson kills people, but one of his better films.

    It has a sense of community, but loneliness

    Bullet Train is new to Netflix – it’s wildly silly but quite amusing.

    much better than I expected! Some slightly sub-Guy Ritchie dialogue but I did enjoy the Thomas The Tank Engine sub plot 😂

    Weird – Bullet Train was on my Netflix about six months ago and was taken off last month!

    It’s been available on pay-per-view for a while, this is the first time it’s free (well OK “included within standard subscription”). I saw it a long time ago as well but it was worth a rewatch.

    Not Netflix, obviously, but we’ve just watched both series of Kin. Very good to watch and not too many plot holes or (usual for dramas / films) “why TF did they do that??” moments. Although, having said that, I believe series 1 has just dropped on Netflix. We watched both in iPlayer

    Serendipity there bikingcatastrophe – we finally started Kin last night. It’s hilarious watching going “oh him. And him, and him too” – basically every Irish actor they could round up.
    One episode in, and it’s already clearly streets ahead of Love/ Hate, albeit that Aiden Gillen plays basically the same character.

    Latest series of Wisting is good. Short (4 episodes), as usual a bit lighter than things like Bordertown, although a bit darker than previous Wistings.

    Anyone watching Sugar on Apple? Watched the first two or three episodes, enjoyed it as an LA Confidential type thing, with an undercurrent of  a conspiracy thread running through it.

    I’m all caught up now. Is there anyone there with me?

    looks like a pound-shop Expendables. Actually, “pound-shop” might be vastly overestimating the budget 😂 Will probably give it a go tho next time I’ve had a few beers!!

    If you enjoyed watching the dazzling animation of the Guillermo Del Torro stuff (troll hunters/ wizards), then you’ll probably enjoy watching ‘Maya and the Three’.

    It must still be on Disney because they are aggressively marketing it all the time.

    You didn’t forget which service it was on, did you? 😉

    Yes, it’s not a classic but we’re enjoying it. MrsJ spotted the twist after a couple of episodes but it was a surprise to me 🙂

    The Bear

    I feel like it deserves another mention, probably my favourite show I’ve watched this year. But definitely on DISNEY!

    Top Boy, Jax deserved an award.

    I see there’s talk of a spin-off series about Jaq.

    Top Girl I presume.

    I watched the first episode but Colin Farrell irritates me and I gave up. Didn’t seem terrible, but didn’t do anything to really make we want to keep watching either.

    The Sympathizer on HBO is good so far, based on a novel by a Vietnamese author about a communist double agent who infiltrated the South Vietnamese police and then went to the U.S. as a refugee after the fall of Saigon. Robert Downey Jr. plays multiple weird characters (so all the white guys look the same, basically). Won’t be released in the U.K. for a few more weeks, but available from alternative sources.

    just finished it and thought it was excellent, one of the best things we’ve seen in ages. We all immediately checked if it had been renewed for another season. Phew.
    watched bullet train for a second time last night and it was better.

    Anyone seen Oppenheimer, considering a punt on Amazon but £14 is little spendy.

    It’s good, not the best thing ever but we quite enjoyed it, well acted and shot.

    Similarly I’m dithering over paying for Zone of Interest and / or The Lesson atm.

    If you want to watch something that will make you want to end western civilisation, then I’d recommend’Buying London’

    A documentary about London estate agents selling high end properties in Mayfair and such. Truly the worst human beings on the planet. Utterly vile. There are serial killers with more morals and they all seem to be very proud of this fact

    Ive watched one episode and I’m not sure I could stomach another

    Went for The Batman, forgot I bought it a few months back. Unfortunately I just realised it’s many hours long.

    I decided not to spend £17 to watch Dune 2 on Amazon prime and instead waited a couple more weeks and spent £3.50 to watch it at the local independent cinema which included a complimentary coffee. FU Amazon!!
