The first couple of series of the Last Kingdom were really decent, the last two have just become filled with agendas and crap that were not in the novels. I guess compared to other telly it's still good, but the books are far superior. It's too bad, as the show really had a great start, then just…..got odd.

I have been watching the peaky blinders for a second time. This show is just too much fun, although it's a dangerous show to watch while drinking as all the characters are constantly drinking and I notice my consumption goes up quiet a bit while watching it….

I have been watching the Medici series on Netflix. Its quite good. No idea if it follows the real story or not but I like the acting and the setting a lot.

I've also watched Hinterland, great casting and the stories are pretty good. I'm glad my PBS channel carries it.

I don't see a problem with them doing kiddie spinoffs. I know a few kids who will love this.

It's just a pity they also make shite films.

Basically they stretched out the book to 8 episodes and it totally felt like it. They should have added 4 episodes and told the story of all three books. Don't know if I can come back for the next season with the smiling giggly lead girl. Remember how Dakota Fanning was screaming through out war of the worlds??? Well the lead in this series is damn near smiling through out.

Tried out the first two episodes of Lock and Key. It was okay, but I am distracted and thinking about heading over to the Amazon Prime series Hunter.

He 100% a bot or a spammer. I've seen this before as a mod/news-editor.

Yeah, bot tactics - copy some random posts from the past, and there's a decent chance it looks like legit posts to moderators. Then start the shenanigans.

Space Force just released on Netflix. I'm excited to see it. I loved The Office, and wonder how this is going to go. I hear it's being panned quite a bit by reviewers, but I've learned to no longer care for official opinions, and just see for myself.

Good idea to not look at reviews too much. I'm guessing this one is politically loaded which can result in some very biased reviews.

Given it was advertised as a political parody of Trumps Space Force I can imagine the cringe already. I can also already see the glowing reviews from certain sites.

As I don’t think Steve Carrell is funny, I’ll just skip it.
