I too watched that Dr. Who Christmas Special just last night. I too am a big fan and remember watching as a kid. Great sci-fi :up:

Mars (2016) (TV Series)

Just caught up with this and viewed the first two episodes. Aired December 2016 :eek:

Only 6 episodes and a 7th a "behind-the-scenes episode shows the complete story of how we got to MARS, featuring interviews with producers, writers, designers, and experts." Interesting as it is in the past tense.

Anybody else viewed this mini-series?

IMDB

Note: I found it interesting as I have been watching some of the Adam Savage (Myth Busters) YouTube videos, the One Day Builds and the ones where explores various movie props and locations. This one in particular.



Another is the one where he builds a prop replica of the Blade Runner 2049 Binoculars.

Saw the First post-midseasonbreak episode of ST: Discovery. I find if I'm containing my inner Star Trek nerd a bit more the show becomes more palatable, but it's still nowhere near as good as it should be. I still couldn't give a crap about any of the characters, the story lines are weak and clichéd and most supposed emotional sections feel forced.

And this is especially contrasted by me starting S02 of The Expanse, which is just terrific.

Anyone here ever watch Blakes7 a British science fiction television series, BBC produced between 1978 and 1981?

Me, well I just decided to watch again as it seems I grew up with this one :smirk: I was trying to remember how the crew discovered the Liberator....

Ken Burn's The Vietnam War. I heard that there's a part where some guy becomes worshipped by the locals as some demigod, and then the guy with the "Born to Kill" helmet shoots a girl, a young Morpheus gets shot, and some guy talks about guns and bullets while on the loo. Can't wait for those parts, but so far, I'm digging it.

This Ken Burns' "The Vietnam War", I've Googled and there's a lot on this so I need to ask is it this documentary?

Yup. Ken Burns is a highly acclaimed documentary filmmaker focusing on American history. The Vietnam War is a 10-part documentary of 1.5 hours each. There is a lot of stock film, photographs and interviews telling the story of the Vietnam war from soldiers on all sides, the political situation, and the civil and antiwar movements of the era.

The feeling I have from watching it so far is that it must have been so chaotic to live in that time period, and how so many of the mistakes made in that war are paralleled today in the Middle East.

Finished of series 3 of Fargo last night, and it's a happy return to form after series 2. Wonderful performances and cinematography all round, whilst retaining that unique Fargo feel.
David Thewlis in particular was a delectable cunt.

Started watching The Handmaid's Tale on hulu with the lady last weekend. Pretty good, pretty messed up situation they're living in. It's one of those shows where I can't watch more than one episode in a row.
