Maybe not so much a recommendation. Kinda petered out at the halfway mark.
That was all kinds of disappointing.

The Last Of Us - TV version of the PS game. Three episodes in and xxcellent so far. The first two episodes had openers that just wowed me. Seriously. Very, very powerful.

I was wondering what it was with the third episode. The 2nd one got me into the series. The third actually surprised me. I'm now waiting for the next one.

The third episode massively expanded on minor characters from the game. It wasn't at all necessary, but it was a lovely and emothional story.

Figured I might as well try Ted Lasso. I could do with a new comedy to watch.
...
"Aw, fuck, it's a football thing?
Fuxake.
Aw well, carry on."

And now I'm up to episode 7. So, um. I guess not even the football angle can take away from a decent sitcom.

Damn you, football...

Started season 2 of Ted Lasso, and there's a weird change to the style of humour.

Season 1 was a funny sitcom comedy, with football as a backdrop.
Season 2 seems to be a football show with funny bits.
Not enjoying it as much.

Just finished watching the Disney+ series National Treasure: Edge of History.

If you enjoyed the Nic Cage movies, then you'll likely find this fairly entertaining. More Indiana Jones-Lite treasure hunting hokum. Enjoyable. But not as good as the movies.

I only just discovered you can select the audio language for series and movies. I had no idea that existed. No more listening to Norwegian or Korean while reading subtitles.

Currently watching 'Viking Werewolf' The CGI wolf is pretty well done.

Bushwick. This with Dave Bathisda. Just got released on Netflix. It starts quite good and grabs the attention so far.

Scrapheap Challenge!!!
Man, I forgot how much I loved this show.

Stumbled upon it whilst flicking through the All4 app, and have watched a couple of episodes of it, tonight.
They have series 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7 available at the minute, so I watched episode 1 from series 2, and then episode 1 from series 7.
The changes, man!
Not only does Robert Llewellyn stop trying to put on his posh voice that he uses in the earlier series, but the show transitions from 4:3 SD to 16:9 HD, and looks WAY better in the later series as a result!

Yeah, I've been re-enjoying ScrapHeap Challenge again too. It really is a cracking programme.

On Prime there is a good Shark movie called 'Shark Bait"

Gave me a good scare every now and then.

Extraction 2, excellent action scenes, poor story. Compared to the old Commando movie and John Wick.

Chris Hemsworth in the lead. Netflix.

I'm on Ted Lasso Season 3, now. I was waiting for it all to pop on before watching it in bulk.

There are now, inexplicably, all of a sudden, three characters who are gay.
I have zero issues with this, in terms of inclusivity etc, and the actual coming out bit was lovely, but.. three, near enough all at once like that..
Reeks of "order from the higher ups".

Finished Ted Lasso S3.
Not bad.
Final episode was a bit "final episode"y.
Also, the last few episodes got longer and longer, so if you're planning on bingeing them, be sure to take that into account so you aren't awake until 5:30 in the morning..
Hmm...

But I did enjoy it.

I have been streaming the Scorpion King 5 the last couple of days. Above average this one is for the series.
