Sugarpuffs or Frosties? 

Sugarpuffs of course!

It was good that your choice was maintained and resulted in an ad on the video he watched later. 

Also loved the ability to choose a tune for a scene. 

A gimmick, yes, but I did get some kicks outs of it all...

Just finished the Netflix show "You". When my girlfriend first put it on I worried it was going to be a love story but it's so much better than I was expecting. The lead actor is fantastic and personally think the show was brilliant.

The main female character's apparent inability to shut her curtains drove me mad :lol: (you'll know what I mean if you've seen it) 

 

I have just read that a second season has been commissioned already which is good news! Anyone else seen it?

Started watch You yesterday. 2 episodes in and it looks good so far.

 

The curtain thing though. My you have to be a confident person. Surprised there are not more people across the road.

Did remind me that just before Christmas was on a bus and drove past someone's place with the curtains open, 50" TV, watching Porn

Finished You a couple of weeks ago, Dexter-lite. Very enjoyable and easy. 

Nearly finished Escape At Dannemora which I’m loving. Performance wise it’s perfect, especially Arquette and the unsung Eric Lange. 

Just started Titans, not what I expected at all. As soon I heard that “fuck Batman” line I was hooked. 

Also blitzed S2 of Marverlous Mrs Maisel and surprised it’s still very great. 

And out of pure boredom I rewatched Lost all over again, still equal parts amazing and infuriating.

Agreed on 'You.' A tale of stalking and obsession in the digital age, really enjoyable. The main character reminded me frequently of Dennis Reynolds from Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in looks and actions. 

Currently watching The Crown. Didn't think it would be my thing as I'm against the monarchy but thought I'd give it a go. It does give a different insight into the lives of the royals, exacerbated slightly for dramatic effect but shows a side to them I'd never realised.

Same mate, I don’t even bother checking up on WOW ever happening anymore as it just it just infuriates me. Time to watch it all again from the beginning anyway.

I know yeah, I checked today after seeing the trailer to see if there'd been any movement. He said in 2016 that he may have it out in 2017 lmao. 

Also, nice to see another Wrexham lad on here

PM’d you lad, didn’t wanna hijack the thread with town talk. 

Finished Titans, think it’s my new favourite comic book show. Pipping even Daredevil.

Just finished watching Maniac. Highly recommend it - I was fully invested by the end, and the visuals, music and just general feel to the show are incredible.  

Pretty good going for what was a complete punt of a choice while scrolling through Netflix. 

'You' next on the list, seeing as a fair few people have now recommended it.

New series of True Detective is alright so far and more in line with the first series than the mess of a second series but it’s still missing the intensity of the first, and three episodes in just seems to be plodding along. Mahershala Ali in the lead is definitely holding it all together and stopping it from being a total snooze fest. Hoping it’s gonna pick up as the series proceeds.

What's your thinking? Are they in on the joke or not

I’m doing my best to hold off on it then will smash it when it’s all good to go. Yeah there’s no way it’s gonna match the first season but as long as it stays away from being anything like the second then I’m happy, whole thing appears to be doing well so far though.

It is strange watching, and who knows how much control they had on the editing.

Had not realised how big Matt was in the states with his Vegas residency.

Was edited to make it looked like they argued all the time. And man it would not hurt to smile a little. Got to feel for Luke, Especially in the part where he says he went to record the drums for the album and they already had done it on a machine, that's gotta hurt.

Good watch though

H O M E those letters are the epitome of home  (along those lines anyway)

Good Place season 3 thoughts anyone? Didn’t realise it was the finale till I checked iMDB after I finished the last episode. Very different to the last two.

Weaker than the previous seasons, still enjoyable. I thought the first phase, Jeremy beremie episode aside, was lacking, but Janets onwards has regained the spark.

Yeah Janets was outstanding, easily one of the best they’ve ever done. Thought KB raised her game in the finale though and was loving her more than usual. At least we’ve got the Veronica Mars limited series to look forward to whilst waiting for the Good Place to return.

The first half of s3 had lots of b-plots, which were generally weak and removed the full cast dynamics which have made the show so good. Janets was brilliant, and each episode from then on has avoided the b-plot syndrome which makes lots of American comedies drag.
