The dance routine in EP 3 of "Hunters", was the last straw for me. As mentioned, the contrast is just too jarring.

 

Enjoyed "Altered Carbon". 7 0f 10.

 

Really enjoyed "The Boys". Urban's accent is shite, but the lead villain is great. Genuinely interested in where this one is going.

How you rate it is, I suppose, how you take it. Taken as a nerd’s violent comic book idea of Nazi hunters it’s probably a 5/10. The overall tone is comic book and Dylan Baker appears to be the comic relief. The problem with that is the concentration camp stuff is, at times, genuinely heart wrenching (the Chess Game in particular), but cheapened because it’s purpose is only to serve to telegraph to the audience that the Nazis are irredeemable baddies with no good in them. And that doesn’t sit right. Hence the low mark.

 

If you try to take it as serious drama it’s into minus figures.


Also, it’s major reveals and twist are so well telegraphed you’ve guessed what’s coming just a few episodes in.

Nazis do have a pretty bad reputation.

 

So, with Hunters we are talking Fortitude level of crappiness?

Wasn't that bad. Forgotten just how horrific that Sky mess was.

Just started watching that 'Protector' on Netflix. Could be way better with good direction. Still worth a watch and some horny women in it. 5 episodes in to series 1 and so far it's about a 6/10. 

 

Altered Carbon series 2. Not as good as 1, but still a decent watch. Overall 8/10.

Just finished "The Outsider".

 

I quit reading King's novels about 20 years/books ago, but this was very enjoyable.

 

A bit too long, of course, but a good, simple story, well told and acted, with a beginning, a middle, and an end.

 

I might dig out "The Stand" and give it another go. Pick up some pointers to prepare for the coming post-Corona-Virus walkabout.

True to form, King's ending underwhelms.

 

Ralph had potential but he was just a mumbling drip, Holly should have been something but instead she's just a nob cheese crackpot.

 

Enjoyed the series as a whole; good but certainly not great.

 

6/10

You probably won't like all of these, but at the moment Sunday-Tuesday has new episodes of Curb, The  Trip, Only Connect, Better Call Saul and Inside No 9. 

 

Pretty, pretty good.

MIGHT BE SPOILERS IF YOU HAVENT SEEN THE EPISODES YET - War of the Worlds, Canal+ on Fox.

 

Not Martians but aliens from Ross 128b, an actual recently discovered exoplanet a little bigger than Earth although maybe 4 Earth masses, just in its star's habitable zone. At a little over 11 light years away even at Warp 1, it would take them aliens 11 Earth years to get here. A 'year' on Ross 128b is just over 10 days so them fuckers will be ancient by the time they get here.

 

Unfortunately the first two episodes set the tone with a lack of science applied to it. All we know is a 'signal' is detected and within hours or a couple of days, it isnt really clear, thousands of objects are detected travelling very fast not far from Earth. Now, I thought in the programme they said the objects were travelling at over a 1000km per second then slowed down as they entered the atmosphere but might have been mistaken. But even travelling at that speed, it would take tens of years to get here and the reference to an Aricebo transmission wouldnt fit the story.

 

So there's a couple of holes off the bat for me, why would an invading fleet give advance warning of its arrival and, they're travelling at sub light speed which means they've been in transit for years so why werent they detected before the signal. There's a couple of other bits as well.

 

Basically, people havent had time to don the tinfoil hats and, if you're not under ground or in a metal box when the aliens turn up the electro magnetic interference, your brain gets fried. All except for one guy whose taxi ended upside down in a French river and struggling underwater to get out while people on the streets ended up as kebabs.

 

The daftest bit was a main cast family's efforts to get out of London. Stuck in traffic, they rush into an underground station until the first attack is over. When they come out, the car's engine is fried so decide to walk home. After a time walking, one of the kids says to the ma, 'you're lost and dont know where we are'! The fuck, you were stuck in traffic, hardly moved from your house, went in an underground station and when you come out, you dont know which direction home is, which can only be half a mile away because of the traffic you were stuck in before!

 

Oh and the ma left her blind daughter with an illegal immigrant who'd been knifed by the owner of a shop he was looting. Meanwhile the ma and her son went outside to have an argument! When the ma went back for her daughter, she found the injured guy holding a gun on her and asking for help. I didnt see that plot line coming!

 

The military element are the French and their soldiers seem to go around tooled up with guns, body armour but no helmets. So when they come across some mechanoid aliens, guess where the aliens aim for?

 

Hmmm, for a bit of escapism, this might be an ok watch. But if you're a sci fi fan, I think you'll find it lacking in sci and not much fi so a bit of a disappointment. 5 out of 10.

 

 

Is this the same one as was on the BBC over Xmas? I originally downloaded it on iPlayer, but never bothered to watch it as it was slated.

I've been watching a few episodes from the 2019 twilight zone. Quite entertaining, nothing amazing, but a nice watch - and the lengths of the episodes vary, which is good as you never feel they're dragging it out or squeezing it in to fit a time schedule. Some decent actors in it too. I'd say out of the 4 I've watched so far, I'd give it a 7/10.

Couple of new shows I’ll be checking out this week, Devs which is a FX/Hulu sci-fi thriller and Amazing Stories which is a reboot of the 80’s Stephen King series for Apple.

Watching 'The Heist' on Sky One . 

 

The basic tenet is that 9 ordinary people pull off a bank job and are given the money ( about £111k each) and are then hunted by investigators and if they can avoid being charged with the robbery for 28 days they keep the money. This series is based around Alnwick in the north east. It's quite decent easy-going viewing but fuck me how stupid some of the 'robbers' are is unbelievable.

Yeah, looking forward to Devs, Alex Garland is attached to it so should be good.

Catch-22 on Channel 4.

 

It's really very good and subtly different to the book, especially the ending. Good acting and directing (George Clooney) and the parts in Rome were actually filmed in Viterbo right in the old town where I used to live.

Is this a Coronation Street spin-off?

Just finished Hunters. The last episode brings it all together and its actually pretty decent. Struggled in the middle a bit but did have a few good moments. 7/10. 

 

Lena Olin in it is super sexy and the ultimate GILF

Altered Carbon S2 - pretty much the same feeling as with the first season of it lacking that something which would make it a good show. Good to look at but all a bit vacuous. 6.5/10
