Just finished both series of Succession - ive come to the conclusion that it is the best show I’ve ever watched. The storyline, the writing, the humour, the family dynamic and the acting from the whole main cast is absolutely superb throughout. Can’t wait for more!

Dark, just wow. The Germans showing everyone how sci-fi should be done. 

Going to get back on this

Have finished season 1 of Money Heist - I noticed there are 4 more. Is it worth it ?  wondering if it will just get dull after a while and have a feeling it will be dragged out

Money Heist peaks with season 3, S4 is a drag though. Been stuck on the last ep for a while but have been neglecting Netflix a bit until Dark returned.

Just rewatched them both, season two is a masterpiece. Jeremy Strong one of the best actors going.

We ended up hate-watching it.

Couldn’t agree more, I’ve just finished season one and it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever watched. The dynamic of Tom and Greg is just so enjoyable, I was actually laughing uncontrollably at the scene when Greg does the Coke at the bachelor party. And that’s not allowing for all the serious scenes and phenomenal acting elsewhere in the show.

Ok, mind officially blown, it’s pretty obvious now (And probably was to everyone else) but I’ve just found out Roman in Succession is Macauley Cullkins brother. 

Woah. Pretty obvious now you mention it. Thought he seemed somewhat familiar.

On a similar note:

The Rise Of The Murdoch Dynasty (BBC)

That blokes got a lot to answer for.

It’s crazy isn’t it, once you see it you can’t un-see it.

Funnily enough watched the Murdoch documentary the other night, it’s amazing just how similar the stories are, even down to the kids being almost the same (minus Connor).

But yeah, proper fucked up how much one man was responsible for.

The Amazon Utopia remake trailer has dropped. Looks a bit more cutesy "Stranger things" than the original i'm not sure if I should watch it.

I guess it will do well whatever, I bet they can't believe their luck that its coming out during an actual pandemic.

Loved the original, may give this a go but will be hard to do it justice

Um did it not have nothing to do with Pandemics and more around climate change/ over population,

 

Oh and the Soundtrack was amazing

Yeah and I think they were planning on solving it by releasing a man made virus. I think this is the 2nd attempt to remake this for the yanks, the first sounded much more promising, David Fincher was onboard and it seemed to be as dark as the original. I'm hoping I'm wrong but as I said the trailer looks a bit "stranger things" kids save the world sort of thing.

Will take a look

 

It was indeed a virus but not to kill anyone, shall not say in case folks have not seen it (The fools)

Ratched is a load of shit. It’s got zero in common with One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest and it’s just not a good show.

I've watched the first two episodes. It seemed like it had some interesting plot but i couldn't care about any of the characters. Probably wasn't going to watch the rest anyway.

As it goes along it just gets more silly with it's plot.

Making her interesting at all undoes One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest as it's her ordinary pettiness which drives the film.

Obviously The Boys is one of the best things on the screen right now.

They've just finishing showing season 2 in the USA, but Yellowstone has been magnificent so far. By the writer of Sicario and writer/director of Wind River (a guy who also starred for a while in Sons of Anarchy). Proper credentials. Kevin Costner leads, his best role in years (not least as he's somewhat vulnerable in this unlike most of his big-screen roles).

Archer and South Park are back, as is the Walking Dead. Good times!

Enjoying the new spitting image though I don't expect it to last long. Firstly because nobody actually has britbox and secondly its definitely a show of its time taking shots at everyone. The reviews seem to suggest comedy nowadays should only punch up so I guess they want 30 minutes of sketches purely about Trump and Boris, people like Greta Thunberg should be off limits.
