I'm reading a few people who thought disappointing last night have woken up today with a much more favourable reaction.
I had something similar when I first saw 2001: A Space Odyssey
I am not into space stuff…apart from spending time in the Planetarium on the QM2…so I have no idea what you are talking about.

A brilliant show on Netflix is The Serpent. It's based on a true story and is an excellent thriller.

I really enjoyed HDM, it's a very good adaptation of the books, and I am very much looking forward to season three.



I finished off season 5 of The Expanse the other night. Very good show, and am avidly awaiting series 6. No LOD series 6 spoilers please! I'm waiting until the 18th when it pops up on Britbox and then I'll be as happy as a wee donkey

Filming at present in Toronto. (Despite the pandemic). Earliest I reckon we'll see it will be Nov/Dec this year but more likely early 2022.

I watched last week. Fantastic series however the back and forth with the timelines made it slightly confusing

I've watched all of the Expanse so far. It was recommended to me by a lot of people but I've not acquired the same passion fo it. It's watchable though.

Have you seen "The Boys" on Prime Sharkus? I think you'd like that show.
