I watched that Harry Potter reunion movie/documentary last night. Was good to see the child actors all grown up again.

Frost finished off last night
Vera series 1 continues to impress
I have to remember that we have Edge Of Darkness to watch (well, re-watch for me, it's a big fave of mine) and I'm curious to see what my girlfriend thinks of it.

'Anne' true story of the Hillsborough disaster, Maxine Peake, as Anne Williams who refused to accept the original results of the inquiry and inquest on her son Keven who died there. Very emotional particularly as I was watching the football, on TV, that day. There are some liberties taken with what happens withing the family, but NOT with what happened at the various court cases. The S*N doesn't come out of it very well, as you might expect.

I have recorded this and look forward to watching it. My aunt who lived in Sheffield alerted me what was happening. A very sad day indeed.

We started Edge Of Darkness, and L is enjoying it. I think we're half way through now, and it's still as great as it ever was.

The 1985 TV series is a classic. Although, Bob Pecks finest role was of course...

Yes, I remember it and thinking about it now brings back the mood, emotions I felt when watching it.

The 80's TV series. I have watched the movie, which, in typical Hollywood fashion is nowhere near as good as the tv series.

I remember my Dad talking about the series when it first came out in 85. I was too young to watch it, and even if I had, I would not have really understood what was going on. I first saw it when it was re-run in 90's and it's been a favourite of mine ever since. I remember getting it on VHS and I might have got a DVD of it at some point too.
I recently grabbed it from the UK iTunes Store (UK appleID using a UK app store gift card) and it seems to be from the same source as the 2019 remastered blu-ray release, and the quality is really good.

I also got a copy of the soundtrack album, and a portion of the main theme is the main ringtone on my phone, so, yeah, confirmation I think it's great.

Finished "Edge Of Darkness" the other night. L really liked it, and of course I loved it as usual.
Vera continues to impress.
One last episode of the expanse coming up this week, not sure how they're going to pack in so much into on episode.
Watching "What If..." (well re-watch for me, and first watch for L) and it's standing up well to a rewatch / first watch
The Book of Boba Fett is doing well too, all of us enjoying it.

I started this last night. "Stay Close" on Netflix. I will update this thread when I have watched all 8 but so far it looks as though it has lots of twists in the plot.
