Binge watched a few on Netflix lately.

 

Stranger Things 7/10 Reasonably entertaining, a bit Speilbergish with the kids who were sometimes irritating.

 

Black Mirror S3 7/10 Variable quality but on the whole not bad. The storyline for lot of episodes seemed to need a small metal disc stuck on the side of someone's head.

 

The Bodyguard 8/10 Atmospheric terrorist thriller. Lacks the subtlety of say le Carre but the action scenes are pretty good. The early episodes are the best and it tailed off for me in the last couple, when the storyline seemed highly improbable.

That's the point.  It's a "love letter" to Amblin.

Finished all four seasons of Line of Duty, really enjoyed it, 9/10.

 

11.22.63 -  time travel show on preventing the JFK assassination, wasn't too bad, 7/10.

 

Watched the last season of The Man in the High Castle, not as good as the previous seasons imo, but still pretty good, 7.5/10.

 

Watched the last season of Better Call Saul, solid show 8/10.

 

Currently half way through watching The Bodyguard, not getting into it at all, finding it ridiculous for a variety of reasons. Will stick it out though.

Watching Bodyguard, Game of Cards, The Haunting of Hill House and Castlevania on Netflix. All those are really good in my books.

Finished:

 

  • Better Call Saul Season 04, 9/10 standalone prequel to Breaking Bad, bloody great.
  • Colony Season 03, 8/10 decent near future SciFi, sadly cancelled after this season.
  • Killjoys Season 04, 8/10 decent SciFi/action drama
  • Ozark Season 02, 8/10 crime drama about a money launderer
  • The Man in the High Castle Season 03, 9/10 Alternate reality/history where the Axis won WW2 and the USA is partitioned between Germany and Japan.
  • The Outpost Season 01, 6/10 Solid fantasy, bit low budget and B grade to begin with, but it rapidly grew on me and I'm looking forward to the next season.

Currently watching:

 

  • 13 Reasons Why Season 02, 7/10, Teen drama that covers suicide, bullying, rape etc. Not my normal cup of tea but I watched the first season before letting someone else watch it, and enjoyed it enough to keep going.
  • Mayans Season 01, 8/10 Crime Drama about the Mayans MC, spinoff of Sons of Anarchy set 4 years after the final of that show. 
  • S.W.A.T. (2017) Season 02, 7/10 action drama about LAPD SWAT, enjoyable if you like NCIS, Hawaii Five-0, etc.
  • Seal Team Season 02, 8/10 military action drama following a fictional team of Navy Seals, again recommend if you like NCIS etc.
  • The Deuce Season 02, 7/10, drama about the rise of the porn industry in New York in the 70's
  • Young Sheldon Season 02, 9/10, spinoff of The Big Bang Theory about Sheldon as a 9 year old.

Walking Dead latest episode  - It's certainly getting interesting. Not long to bring a lot of plots together and close the new twists introduced. I hope they finish it well.

I recorded it from Sky Box Sets channel after reading it, but still haven't watched it.

 

Great book.

Really enjoyed the Bodyguard.

 

Just started watching The Little Drummer Girl (TV1 on demand). Based on the Le Carre Spy Novel.
Both the wife and I are really enjoying this one. 9/10 so far. We were disappointed that it can't be binged on TV1 ATM.
Set in Europe in the  70's with Mossad chasing down terrorists.
Stars Alexander Skarsgård and who I always have liked as an actor for some reason. Michael Shannon is also excellent as the female lead.

I just finished watching "Line of Duty" and "Shetland S:3". British drama is just soooooooo much better than US, in fact on the whole I think most UK TV is. But I like US action shows.

 

Is anyone else a biker?

 

You have to watch Norman Reedus (Walking Dead) show: Ride with Norman Reedus. Actually even if you cant or dont want to ride bikes its awesome. So much better than shows like Top Gear, which I did like to, but custom bikes are so cool to see all kinds of flavours.

 

What spun me out a bit is he has Imogen Lehtonen on the show, her family are kiwis and started the jewelry shop "The Great Frog". What spun me out is I have a silver King Neptune from them I bought mid 90s.

 

She is a really nice person and really pretty I must confess, Megan Fox reminds me of her not the other way around, she is a class act. https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-sports/how-a-reluctant-motorcycle-ambassador-saved-female-biker-culture-117626/

 

Anyway the first episode they are basically riding the California strip from bottom to top. I have always been fascinated by the place, not LA, but further up as it gets elevated, it reminds me of 80s TV shows. Hes riding a custom BMW nine T. They are awesome to ride. Even though Im a Triumph guy, I do love all bikes, but something really special about BMW, so smooth, even their motards and stunter bikes.

 

Its 8.1/10 on IMDB, I think likely a lot of walking dead fans are watching it too.

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5547946/

 

Highly highly recommended for Bikers and non Bikers a like as its entertaining. 9.9999999/10
