    Similar to the TV remake of the Shinning, the original was good, but it wasn't the book and glad that someone had the balls to remake it true to its roots. While I enjoyed the original IT, this is suppose to be darker and more aligned with the book. Less clown more monster.

    Bring it on.
    Still can't see them putting in the gang bang scene but can't blame them. It's also a two part movie first movie will be of them as kids the second will be them as adults plus no director said no spider will be in it

    Saw the season out... It wasn't baaaad... I guess. But it didn't blow me away. Kinda annoyed me a bit tbh. I know it's clearly the way the storyline is written but the main character is just so fuckin stupid that it ain't funny.

    Finished Fargo S2. Season 1 was good. Season 2 was wonderful in every aspect, couldn't fault it. S3 premiering very soon but not on Foxtel yet unfortunately.

    Make yourself watch it, its superb. Unique location combined with deep intertwining back stories and Mendelssohn top it right off. The sister actress of the siblings is an absolute hotty.

    As for going back and rewatching, me and the Mrs have went back to epi 1 of walking dead, cannot believe how much i am getting out of it. A whole lot more connects and sticks throughout the series, must just be my memory fading. Up to season 3, loving it.

    I recorded SS-GB last night.

    Anyone watched it, and is it any good? What should my expectations be for this?

    I gave it a miss because the reviews were average. It does look like something I would like but not much room on the IQ at the moment.

    I haven't seen the ad or the show, but that sounds like it.

    Plot is about a detective in Scotland Yard in England after Germany won the war. Interesting premise, not great reviews, will give it an episode or 2 to decide if its worth continuing with

    Ahhhh. Sounds like a cool concept... Ive got a few episodes of Iron Fist to get through and will then be looking for something new to get behind until The Defenders comes out. Might give it a crack.

    Actually quite devastated by this, even though the longer the wait went on the less likely it was going to be renewed. I literally only checked for info yesterday and couldn't find any.
