‘Zen Motoring’ on BBC - six short episodes. Very different and not like anything I’ve seen before but enchanting and relaxing in a strange way - which sorta makes sense because that’s what it says on the tin. Loved every second of it.

Amazon original called "Upload" its a half hour comedy that's like a mix of Black Mirror and The Good Place. Set in 2033 when we can upload our consciousness to the cloud when we die and life forever in a digital afterlife. its really really good.

Reacher - Prime Video - 4th February - This looks like it could be fun. A far cry from the Tom Cruise portrayal.

 





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)

 

Kia Sportage EX (2019), Mazda Demio (2001)

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

Reacher on Amazon Prime. 3 Episodes in.

 

The main actor is a bit prettier and younger than Reacher is usually portrayed as, but he is physically dominant. I am enjoying it pretty much so far. It has promise.

 

For the record, I had very little issue with Cruise as Reacher. When he was originally cast I laughed, and I met with Lee Child at a book signing in the USA and talked to him for a while about it which was cool. Cruises size was really the only thing that didn't work for me, but most of the time they did ok balancing it out.

‘Landscapers’ - dramatised UK true murder series in four episodes, with Olivia Coleman and David Thewlis (brilliant as V. M. Varga in a Fargo season a few years ago) - from HBO. The style is a bit Coen-esque,  different and quirky - but great IMO. Apparently coming soon to Neon.

Binge watched over weekend, rally enjoyed it. Not the highest amount of thinking required to follow it but a great bit of entertainment! Now need to find the next show to get into, bit of a lull at the moment.

Young Sheldon.

 

 

 

Very well acted considering the age of the principle cast member! Has my wife in stitches because she just points at me when Sheldon is being Sheldon and says "That's you!" 

 

 

 

I'm sure I am not THAT bad....

"Dumb and Dumber" a bit like posting a comment about a movie on the TV series thread :)

A lot more believable than the Tom Cruise movies, but it was annoying that Reacher — now played by Alan Ritchson who is as big as a house — kept being close to having his ass whipped by diminutive bad guys two thirds his size and half his weight.  In the books he never comes close to having a hard time beating half a dozen big guys at the same time.  [minor SPOILER] In one scene Reach is repeatedly smashed about the ribs and the side of his face with a large crowbar, but when he eventually prevails he shows no sign of the broken ribs and dislocated jaw he should have had.  Lee Child makes his obligatory cameo in the last episode (I think).  With all the money he must have made from the books you'd think he could afford enough meat pies to put some flesh on his bones.  He looks like a skeleton.

But it was great, "no brainer" entertainment. And it certainly entertained us :)
