    TLOU is awesome, I didn't like the final episode though

    But yes episode 3 was great - In the beginning I was saying "nope, nope, don't trust him"
    Yeah totally! I had the same vibes but as soon as he commented on the wine I saw what was coming.

    Only finished 3 episodes but I'll send a message to discuss once I'm done, hopefully I don't mind the last one!

    They did a gr8 job with The last of Us.

    Here's what's on in the cow household

    I highly recommend Cunk On Earth. Its definitely a Milchcow style of humour.

    Ted Lasso season 3 which I a enjoy has a low stress watch

    Yellowjackets season 2 just started, only seen ep 1 so far. Season 1 was pretty good so hoping they can maintain the standard

    Mandalorian season 3 not doing great things for me, but its still watchable

    @Milchcow thanks Milch

    Watching trailers, Cunk doesn't appeal but like most things probably have to give it a go first.

    Haven't tried Lasso at all, main actor appeals. I think it's because comedy is very personal, and subjective.

    Watched the beginning of Yellowjackets season 1, couldn't get into it.

    Liked Mandalorian, haven't seen 3 yet. Has it become a little to predictable and cutesy ?

    Like Lasso, want to do Yellow Jackets but not sure have heard both good and bad reviews from friends. Mando 3 5 eps. and nothing has really happened. All setting up for what is either going to be an amazing final 3 episodes or a filler for seasons 4&5

    Didn't really enjoy Mando season 3.

    Shame because if you'd told me in advance it was Bo Katan uniting the Mandalorians to reclaim Mandalore I would have been all over it. Execution just didn't match they expectations for me.


    Currently watching The Power on Amazon. Have read the book but forgotten most of it,

    Watched the first episode of Mrs Davis. I've enjoyed a lot of other stuff by Damon Lindelof, but this is quite a departure from his usual style. Will probably watch the rest later on but its not a top priority

    Anyone watched 'Beef'. I'm intrigued by it, is it worth my time?


    Also in light family entertainment, the Cow family are enjoying Lego Masters, and the 1% Club (both the Aus and UK versions)

    Yeah, Beef is pretty good. The shorts didn't really sell me but I ended up watching it in one day (although haven't watched the final ep yet). Very easy watch.

    Watch Beef. No one's lifes perfect for all different reasons, good drama comuedy. In the final episode they commit suicide Romeo & Juliet style.

    Joking SI. Just finish it,

    I've started watching Night Agent, seems just another political FBI/CIA show.

    First two episodes of Silo banked tonight, love the premise. Apple has some good stuff.

    Watched the first two eps earlier today. Has a bit of a "Barry" vibe to it and yeah, good enough that I'll see through the first season.

    Finally got around to starting Invincible. Didn't really know much about. First ep has me hooked big time.

    Oh yeah that's with S Yuen in it, saw the trailer and could be worth a run.

    Hello Tomorrow is gud for something more light, a novel idea/theme to it about selling homes and properties to people for a future life on the moon. It's quite good.

    By the end of Night Agent I could do another season. Nothing mind blowing, but good easy watch. Watched first episode of Poker Face. It's Riian Johnson so they are hyping the Glass Onion connection. Each episode is it's own mystery. It's more focussed on the solving that the who done it and wasn't hard to pick the red flags.

    Yellowjackets season 2 was great, and has a killer soundtrack too. I recommend it

    Have a few episodes to go of the Power, and then am going to move on to Beef and Silo

    Watched The Diplomat.

    Watching The Great, which is silly but good background.

    I am sure it's been mentioned here before, but stumbled onto Snowfall, very good. Reminds me of The Wire.

    New Black Mirror released recently

    I've just seen the first 2 episodes so far. Both good without being great. Loch Henry probably the better one, although more of a standard suspense/thriller than a typical black mirror episode.

    Love Black Mirror
    I've just caught Joan is Awful so far, and agree, good without being great (have a feeling that might be the vibe of this season)

    Googled this and it looks good, will have to try and remember to give it a go.

    I've been watching Alone. Its pretty interesting. Survivalist show, but done fully legit. They drop 10 contestents in the wilderness (a long distance apart from each other so there is zero interaction) and the last one out there wins. Each person is given their own camera gear so they have to do all their own filming. Its good background viewing, throw it on and cook dinner etc while half paying attention, as it can be slow moving at times.

    Snowfall is great. Season to season it changes course pretty significantly. Haven’t watched the final 2 Eps yet but they rated well so hopefully not disappointing.

    FROM season 2 has been a little disappointing after a cracking first season. Feels like they didn’t expect to get renewed and didn’t have many ideas left. Still look forward to it every week though.
