    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 use an app I use to get all the tv/movies you want. Covers basically every major streaming service. PM if you or anyone else wants it.

    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.
