The next two episodes aren't much better. I haven't watched episode 4 yet, it's not a priority.

Ridley Scott sci-fi tv series Raised By Wolves. Get through the first 30 minutes of the first episode. After that it's non-stop sci-fi horror all the way. Deserves every kind of warning. Travis Fimmel from Vikings plays a lead, same character. Imo this would have been an excellent movie. Expanded to a a tv series suffers from long arc and filler in the gaps. Visually, almost faultless. On Neon.

Yeah, agree, Raised by Wolves is amazing!

 

Im watching "The Billion Dollar Code" (Netflix) which is very interesting!

Bad Sport on Netflix. 

 

 6 True crime and sports intersect in a docuseries that examines global controversies and scandals with firsthand accounts from those involved.

 

The one on the drug smuggling top race car driver is quite entertaining. The one on the execution of show jumping horses for money is just sick.  all of them are watchable  8/10

 

 





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Maid on Netflix - have watched three out of ten episodes in this mini-series and really enjoying it.

 

IMDB has 8.6/10 and says "After fleeing an abusive relationship, a young mother finds a job cleaning houses as she fights to provide for her child and build them a better future."

 

So far, it's gritty at times and a little sad and depressing, which doesn't sound like fun, but the woman's pluckiness carries it - and hopefully it will have a happy ending. There was a possible uptick of hope at the end of E3.

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11337908/

 

(The main woman character, Alex, is played by Margaret Qualley, daughter of Andie MacDowell. Andie MacDowell plays Alex's mother in Maid. Coincidentally for me, Qualley plays one the main characters in Death Stranding, which I'm currently playing on PS5. One of the other characters in Maid refers to Alex as Momma. Qualley's character's name in Death Stranding is also Momma.)

I have loved this series - a lot

 





iMac 27" [14.2] (late 2013), Airport Time Capsule 5th gen, iPhone13 x 2, iPad6, iPad Mini5, Spark Smart Modem 1st Gen

 

Panasonic TV Viera TH-L50E6Z (1080p), Panasonic Blu-ray PVR DMR-BWT835, Yamaha AVR RX-V1085 [6.1 Surround Speaker System], Apple TV 4k 64Gb (2nd gen)

The difficult we can do immediately. The impossible takes a bit longer. But Miracles you will have to wait for.

Wife and I started watching Only Murders In The Building on Disney+ Star this weekend, as the weather was rubbish. 

 

It stars Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez and is based in an old and fairly grand apartment building in New York. 

 

It follows the three main characters as they form an unlikely alliance (as all three are obsessed with the same True Crime podcast) over a murder in the building. Or is it murder? 

 

We've watched three episodes so far and it's been quite enjoyable.

Watched the final two episodes of Brooklyn 99. Feels like I have said goodbye to quite a number of great long-running series recently without anything to replace them with. 

 

It was one of the better finales honestly, they did a good job. Andre Braugher was excellent in it.

Guilty - iPlayer - Series 1 and 2 - 8/10

 

Watched the first series a few weeks ago and we're a couple of episodes into series 2. It's a clever plot with more than a few stories all linked together which play out over the series. Very enjoyable and well worth the watch.

 

----

 

The Chestnut Man - Netflix - 3/10

 

Yawn. The same as all the other Nordic murder mysteries. Nothing new to see.

 

----

 

The Valhalla Murders - Netflix

 

See above. Watched E1, haven't gone back.

I was just looking at that as a potential new show to start. Looks like only one season.

Was renewed for S2, but no official date on when it would be released. I saw late 2021/early 2022 somewhere, but imagine like many things they have been delayed by COVID
