Watched the first episode of The Mandalorian last night, late to the party I know. Was a bit confused why they'd filmed it all in an alien dialect with English subtitles but enjoyed it nevertheless. J

Aye I’m always up for bigging up The Leftovers. Easily one of my favourite shows of recent years/ever. I really enjoyed the first season which follows the book very closely, but season 2 and 3 which a

He had a stew of action goin' on

Anyone seen any of Ratched? I'm 3 eps in and its not bad. It hasn't solidified what its point is to me yet but Sarah Poulson is great in everything.

I still marvel at how much budget TV shows get sometimes, the set design alone on Ratched must cost a fortune.

Just finishing up the first season of Dark on Netflix - stunned this show isn't talked about more, wonderfully mind bending and SO well executed. It's in German  so if you watch it for the love of god watch it in German with subtitles rather than the dubbed version. Only 1 season through and it's sitting pretty up with Mr.Robot and Breaking Bad in my estimations

I started this at the weekend as well. I'm enjoying it as well. Sarah Paulson is a great actress. I have to say TV is the new film. Better stories, better casts and as you say the budgets aren't too shabby either!

The new episode of The Mandalorian is just ludicrous, and I mean that in the best possible way. I thought they might have a bit of a cooler episode after last weeks, but this was just a straight half hour of the best fan service yet and full throttle action. SO good.

I was going to wait until the end of the season to watch Mandalorian but when I saw the episode title I was left with little choice.  So glad I did, spent an enjoyable couple of evenings catching up and saved episode 5 for last night.

Smashing through Malcom in the middle at the moment. Perfect nostalgia that also stands the test of time. Still absolutely  hilarious too. 
 

The second season of Dark materials is also fantastic. Definite step up from the first.

I'm enjoying it and think the cast are fantastic.  Hoping they can actually fix the narrative cos the books are dead in the gutter by the time the The Amber Spyglass starts.

And don't get me started about the fucking elephants on wheels.

My housemate mentioned those in the context of 'wonder how they are planning on doing that without it looking silly' and I'd completely forgotten about them along with pretty much the whole of the final novel. Saying that, if the tv show is sticking at all closely to the 2nd book, (other than updating it) then there's clearly not much that I remember from the second one either.

Enjoying the show though. And I enjoyed the two new books

We just watched what I think is my favourite episode the other day; the one where Hal and The Gentleman Callers perform 'The Man Who Never Returned'.

The song has been stuck in my head ever since.

I don’t think I’ve seen that one! Bryan Cranston is a comedic genius.

Mando is so much better than it needs to be and I love to see it 😍 

Yep this series has really picked up the last few episodes and gone full throttle. So good. Very glad it’s finally settled in to a proper serialised story rather than just a bunch of side quests. Easily the most satisfied I’ve been with any of Disney’s Star Wars stuff.

I loved Dark! Stranger Things German-stylee. Season 3 will truly test your grey matter as it blends everything you were supposed to be paying attention to in the first 2 seasons, so pay attention!!

Coincidentally I just started watching another German puzzler called Parfum. Not nearly as mesmerising as Dark though.

There are some cracking European subtitled-series out there.

Big fan of the snappy 35 min or so episodes and 8 episode run too. Little to no flab on them. Netflix and the rest should take note
