Wrapped up Fringe. I can see why people didn’t like the 5th season. Such a change from the previous seasons. And they really tried to stretch Joshua Jackson’s acting chops, which he doesn’t really have.

I still enjoyed the heck out of it though. Probably not enough to muster a rewatch one of these days, but we’ll see.


Started rewatching Seinfeld for something lighter. I don’t know how anyone doesn’t like this show.
I've always been crazy but its kept me from going insane.

Posting this here because it falls more in the television (entertainment) category than sport.

So if you guys can find it online, watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul fight (and also the Ocho Cinco vs ? - already forgot his name - fight). Desus & Mero helped call both fights and they had us in stitches. One of the funniest, unscripted comedic moments on television I think I've seen. Those guys are quick with the wit. You know they were honing their skills by talking shit on the playground in the Bronx when they were kids.

TABOO... two eps in.
I haven't made my mind up yet, but have to give the production credit... they tell us everything, show us almost nothing, and yet it totally works. The show is almost entirely grumpy people with bad skin and worse teeth talking about bad things, the viewer sees none of those things, yet they make it compelling. Also totally sells filthy 1800s London as filthy. Tom Hardy is wasted in superhero movies.

Sixth season of 'Inside no.9' is well underway, and so far it has been an absolute gem once again. Any other fans here?

Watched BO BURNHAM: INSIDE on Netflix.

Wow.

I've never seen anything that was quite like this. It's funny, majorly satirical, and makes you look inward.

VERY good.

THE CIRCLE on Netflix. I'm aware it's bottom of the barrel trash reality TV...but it's amusing to goof on and sometimes the wife and I just need something we can ignore.

Yah Inside was pretty great. Along with his last special that IIRC was pretty good, Bo Burnham has grown up a lot from his early edgelordier days and it's really nice to see, even if the subject matter is increasingly bleak.

I had no idea there were 6 series of Inside No. 9. I think Hulu here in the States only has the first two for some reason, so I gotta find the rest. That show is hilarious.

They came with white hands and left with red hands.

You didnt watch GoT?


GoT had zombies, ice elves, dire wolves, cannibals, dragons, little people, giants, mages, freaky fire priestesses, tree people, a virus that turns people into stone, knights, pirates, barbarians, and a 14 year old girl who became the world's greatest assassin in about three hours. I had a great time.

I loved this. They really made London the shitpile it was, and Jonathon Pryce and Jason Watkins are so good.

Also Tom Hardy striding round London in a top hat battering people was way more entertaining than I thought it would be.
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

Ep 4 now. The art direction in this series is so good. Every time they move into a 'clean' setting the jump from all the dirt and misery is physically jarring.
And King George is absolute GLORIOUSLY hideous on every level.
Agreed re Hardy in his hat and coat, his whole bearing every time he walks the streets. It's like everyone and everything is shying away from him slightly. I cannot easily recall an actor visually chewing scenery so hard while barely speaking.

Watched Watchmen. It was real good as a show in its own right, but as a Watchmen story it ended kinda dissapointingly- didn't have the cleverness or moral ambiguity of the OG ending, and indeed kind of undercut the original.




About Tabboo - there's a fair bit to like there but I ended up feeling it was trying way too hard all the damn time.

Disney+ Nat Geo section has a two-part Documentary called THE 90's (each part is 1.5hrs long) from 2014, narrated by Rob Lowe, and it's REALLY good. It makes me SUPER nostalgic for my youth. Worth your time if you lived through the 90's, or want to know more about that decade.

It also shows they are ignoring the 2000's reboot.
