Been watching the Orville. Expected Red Dwarf style parody but I'm actually getting good quality sci-fi around comedy moments. 

I hate it so much. It's just fucking dire. The only reason I watch it is because some of my mates have been watching it and I don't want to miss the opportunity to slag it off in front of them.

Agree to disagree. We're 4 episodes in and have been enjoying it immensely. It knocks spocks off the last series of Discovery, which is admittedly a low bar.

Pistol. Starts almost comically awful (those accents)but does actually improve as it goes on.

 

6/10

 

Yeah, a bit disappointing. It's merely Ok.

I've watched shit drying on a wall which knocks spots off of the last season of Discovery, mate. I just genuinely hate it and the more I watched it the more the bad writing, the cheap sets, etc come to the forefront. Some do enjoy it a lot though, no doubt about that. I hope you have a good time with it. Now it has moved to Hulu and is in its final season, they've tried to go all serious and, for me, it just doesn't work at all.

We own this city very solid 8/10 brilliant performance from actor playing Wayne. 

Yes, saw a few 7/10 ratings for this. I watched the first one last night, seems set up to be better than a seven.

That's odd, it sounded such a promising premise too...

It reminded me of Ugly Betty or that terrible one with Anna Friel. The colours were all over the place.

I watched it as well. It was decent but didn’t really grab me, as a result I wasn’t giving it my full attention and struggled with all the flash backs a bit.

I acquired Tokyo Vice the other day. A Michael Mann / HBO show based on a true story of a US national who becomes a crime reporter in Tokyo.

 

I really enjoyed the first episode, unfortunately, subsequent episodes don’t have the subtitles so I need to acquire from elsewhere.

The time travelling is its biggest flaw. Its a solid show though.

Give it another try, it's a fantastic black, satirical comedy and Gary Oldman is superb in his role.

I have gone back to Slow Horses and it is much better than my first thoughts. A solid 7/10 but nothing special. Dont see much humour apart from Gary Oldham's flatulance though. The Four Lions plot tribute is a bit meh for me and the acting,Oldman aside,is far from great either.

I've not watched it yet. Will there be a season 2 or is a mini-series?

I actually pay for HBO Max and it doesn't have hard coded subs for the Japanese bits. I can stick English subs on for everything but that's just annoying. Will have to try Kodi.

Watched the documentary about the Falklands war on BBC2. Mainly interviews with ex paratroopers. Some of them were still deeply fucked up by their experiences, 40 years on. One who had narrowly survived the fire on the Sir Galahad kept a noose permanently hanging in his garage so he could easily kill himself if the PTSD got too much. For 40 years !
 

What was equally shocking was how casually they talked about killing the teenage Argentinian conscripts sometimes even as they tried to hide in their sleeping bags.

 

 Harrowing watch.

The finale of Barry season 3 was good despite an underwhelming season overall. No idea where they go from here like.

It was bizarre,the whole season was in fact. It was like a stand alone series.
