    We recorded the Adam Hills thing last night, haven't had a chance to watch it yet

    The Netflix series Home Game is also pretty good. Each episode goes to a different country and focuses on unusual sports there. The first episode on calcio storico would appeal to many here I think.

    Doco last night on 10 about setting up PDRL (Physical disability rugby league) in England culminating in coming out here to play us. Interviews with each player on their disability, how it effects them, what RL means to them and obviously the teams journey from a bunch of blokes to coming to Australia to play our best team. Absolutely must see, guessing you will be able to pick it up on 10 play. In case you're unsure here's a quote
    "we didn't realise his dedication. After the game he had to get his stump re-amputated"

    Had never been a fan of Adam Hills until one day a couple of years ago I realised how passionate he is about Rugby League. I never knew that before and it has opened me up to getting into him.

    If you think Calcio Storico is insane, wait until you get to Kok Boru - Kyrgyztani polo with a dead goat for a ball.

    Not sure if this is the right crowd for musicals but anyone with Disney+ should watch Hamilton. I'm a changed man. I don’t know how telling the story of the American Revolution through rap and hip hop works so well, but it really really does. Political debates done through rap dis battles, how has this not been in our lives until now? Who knew the founding fathers were so fucking gangsta.

    Rolling Laugh This just seems like the kind of thing South Park could have made an entire Season out of.

    If you don't have Disney + and are keen, a PM to the man with out a care in the world could help you out.

By complete chance last night I found 7Plus has the full series (2 seasons) of a show called The Client List starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as a newly single mother who, as I understand it, turns to prostitution to support her kids.

    Literally 15-20mins into the first episode when I had to retire last night so no idea if it's actually any good but my teenage self would never forgive me if passed up JLH in this role. Sexy times ahead?

    I just finished watching Kingdom. Awesome show, especially if you like a bit of MMA. Great depth of characters and a couple of really moving performances. Not what i first expected but it drew me in.

    SO Saw 'Raised by Wolves' through, but to me it totally belly flopped after having a great premise and opening episode. Felt like nothing happened, and a huge case of what could have been.

    A late comer, but me and the Mrs have smashed through Animal Kingdom in the last month, in season 4 now. Great fast paced action, not an overly deep show but enjoying it for what it is.

    We started watching Animal Kingdom. Its a bit "so bad that its good" for me. Tacky but entertaining. We're into season 2 now.

    Yeah that's how I felt about Raised by Wolves. Started off with so much promise and then just went nowhere with a bizarre end to the series that I wish they hadn't done.

    Currently watching and recommend:

    The Good Lord Bird
    Band of Brothers (still awesome)

    I'll probably still watch season 2 of Raised by Wolves, but its not going to be super-important. Enough interesting things there even if it went it strange directions at times.
    Thing that annoyed me most about it was the dialogue was so hard to understand - need subtitles on to watch the show.

    Mandalorian season 2 underway, I assume everyone that cares is watching it. Visually the show is amazing, the plot is a bit dodgy at times but its still good to watch. Whole bunch of tie-ins to the Clone Wars/Rebels cartoons coming now which hopefully they do well.


    Just finished Brave New World on Stan, which is good if you like that sort of thing (also on Stan, Catch 22 is great if you like the book)

    Yeah its simplistic, similar to Sons of Anarchy, although that had more depth to relationships in it. The character of Pope in Animal Kingdom is pretty good.
