We are 2 episodes into 'Black Bird' and so far so good. It's based on a true story which makes it even more interesting.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4301160/

Available on Apple TV+ or any good Torrent site

We finished up the third season of "What We Do In The Shadows" and await the fourth season appearing on Disney+ at who knows when

"Year Of The Rabbit" was also excellent, Matt Berry was his usual somewhat surreal self.

We are working our way through "Top Boy", starting out with "Summerhouse" and then we have just finished series one. Bleak in places but very good."For all Mankind" series three is done, just as good as the prior seasons, and hate having to wait for the next one.

Over the weekend I have become addicted to "Drive to Survive". I do have a love of F1, stemming from my mum being a fan. I've been to a couple of the GP's in Montreal, but my watching of it waned because a) they had the US commentary at one point, with the so annoying David Hobbs and some other people, b) TSN would cut to adverts, or do a split screen thing with adverts, which is plain stupid. At the time the F1 TC Pro package to watch live races on the internet was not available in Canada. However, that seems to have changed, and this year I gave it a go and it's fantastic, and so I've got back into F1. I knew about DTS and had not watched it until now, and it's rather good. I know some things are somewhat staged, and it does show rivalries where there really aren't any, but overall it is helping me get caught up from the last couple of years. I do recommend it as a guide to F1 to get you up to speed (pun somewhat intended).

Just finished watching the latest season of For All Mankind, great season.

As much as this show is great I do wonder if the Soviets did beat the US to the moon would the space race have continued, because damn

Given the time, yes it would have continued. There's no way the US would have just let it lie.

We finished up Drive To Survive last night. Excellent series, though you can somewhat see where some levels of tension have been exaggerated, plus of course issues such as the fact F1 should not be racing in certain countries is completely overlooked, the only exception being a reference to George Floyd. It got my caught up nicely to the current season.

Finished off Top Boy, rather alarming ending, but at least we'll see another series and one wonders what that'll bring.

Started on She-Hulk: Attorney at law. It's pretty good, the CGI of the lead is a bit better than it appeared in the trailers where it seemed to be not too good. Storyline is interesting, and nice to see call backs to characters from some of the earlier films.

After getting a bit hooked on Silent Witness season 25 when I was back in England about a month ago, we have started watching it from the start. Pretty good stuff, and thankfully there is a heck of a lot of it, so it'll keep us occupied.

Have just finished "Sherwood" (Brit box) and i must say it really lived up to all the hype. The BeeB excelled themselves on all counts including assembling a cast of well know British actors/actresses. It helps if you know a little history about the UK miners' strike of 1984 to fully appreciate the story line. Glad it has been commisioned for a second series.

Watching it now and I find the motorcycle gang parts to be boring and I prefer the previous 2 seasons of Trapped.

"HORNS! HORNS! HORNS! HORNS!"

We didn't start the last series of Derry Girls last night as we would have binged the whole thing, so we'll do a partial binge tonight.

We're getting through Breaking Bad, and it's pretty amusing, and I can see why it got the praise it did.

House of Dragons, and She-Hulk continue to be good.

I still need to view Andor to see if it's suitable for my son to watch. I suspect it's about the same level as the other recent star wars series on Disney+

Oh, and we watched Dogs In Space season 2. Very funny, and odd, which is what we like

Those picket lines brought back memories and how we the Police were not well equipped for all the stuff we had thrown at us. Agree with the Met being portrayed as an evil/disliked force and that was said by many a Northern copper as well.
