    I finished Ms Marvel. Definitely think it was aimed more at the kids/teenagers. I didn't find it particularly engaging.

    Kenobi I struggled with. I just didn't give a shit about any of the characters, thought the acting outside of the main cast was terrible (Flea's cameo - where's the puke emoji?) and the dialogue and decisions characters were making were just silly at times.

    Managed to finish it through just wanting to see how they tied it up so could've been worse!

    Watching Paper Girls which amazon seems to be marketing as their 'stranger things'.
    Again, I'm not the target audience here so take with a pinch of salt but it's a pile of horseshit.

    We watched Ms Marvel with the calf, I thought it was good enough. The first few episodes were better than the end, but I liked the actor for Ms Marvel herself. That sort of YA stuff is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine (watched a tonne Degrassi for instance)

    I think one reason Kenobi struggled was that due to the future movies, there were limited things they could do with Kenobi or Vader themselves without breaking canon. So they had to introduce some new characters to have some sort of tension and I think they fell flat a bit. I didn;t mind them, but as Filth said, some of the character decisions just didn't make much sense. Was passable but not great.
    Hopefully Andor is better

    I know a bunch of people have lost all interest in game of thrones, but I'm hanging out for the new series in a few weeks, and the Rings of Power too.

    I thought Kenobi was okay but not much more than that - I'd love to see someone take the star wars universe backdrop and make it darker - less glossy/more grimy

    I also finally watched Arcane in the last month or so - I'm not into the games, and not particularly drawn to animation - but I thought it was pretty enjoyable, escapist.

    Need to start on something new, thinking I might watch Money Heist

    Have you seen Star Wars Visions ? If not may appeal for the less glossy/more grimy

    High Maintenance.

    Amazing show no-one has ever seen.

    25 minute eps so easy to watch. If the first 3 don't hook you I'd be very surprised. About a decent ethically intact run of the mill lad who delivers pot and edibles all around NYC on his pushie. It's HBO so you know it's good.

    Prey (new predator movie) is amazing.

    If you're looking for a guns-blazing constant adrenaline action this is not it.
    It's quite akin to the original movie in many ways including central theme.

    Cinematography was what really god me. Visually stunning film.

    Space force season 2 kicks on from the first, very funny show. Short episodes but packed with laughs. Comedy personal though of course

    Had my follow up surgery Friday, got a pass mark and feeling good. Star Wars Visions is a different manga artist/diector reimagining Star Wars each episode.

    I recently watched "I Want You Back". It is a romantic comedy. Not my favourite genre, but it is a really good watch. Stars Charlie Day and Jenny Slate (from Kroll show and other things). Good Sunday evening movie tbh.

    Anyone watched Sandman on netflix?

    Probably going to be the next series for Mrs Cow and I. We're Gaiman fans, although I've never read the comic, but should be down or alley

    I realise this isnt TV but anyone listen to Lex Fridman podcasts? I have only listened to a few but the ones i have are some of the most interesting/fascinating discussions ive listened to.

    Just finished one with Andrew Bustamante, who was a CIA spy with nuclear clearances. Some really thought provoking stuff in there.

    Also recommend one he did with Brett Johnson who was a profilic internet scammer, once on fbi most wanted list, and now a cybersecurity expert.

    Also a chat with Roger Reeves, who was a pilot for Escobar et al.

    Have been waiting for this since announced but didn't realise it was released. Last few were horrible, although as much as I hated the last one, I watched it again a few weeks ago and it wasn't quite as bad as I remembered.

    A few of us on here watched Mr Inbetween as it it was screening. In my Top 10 all time Series personally. Check out The Magician on Amazon after you have finished the Series-it's Scott Ryan as Ray OG in 2005.

    Final episode of series 2 you cried, admit it.

    Has been discussed a while ago and the series is a NRLFF favourite.
