The Better Call Saul series... Only halfway in ep3 and it is really good.

Really good. Season 3 just done and amazing how the two, Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad blend :up:

Still really good in S04E08 :up: :up:


All done, excellent viewing, a rather good watch and I typed this in dime light :eek: :smirk:

EDIT: Where is season 6 for goodness sake?

Fantastic TV, Better Call Saul. Arguably better than Breaking Bad

Agreed.
Although I must say that after
Chuck's meltdown in court and subsequent death
the series heads so far into Mexican drug cartel territory that it basically becomes Breaking Bad 2.

Just started on The Expanse. Just 3 episodes in of 4 seasons. It seems OK.

OK? Just "OK"? Maaaan, The Expanse is EPIC!

By the way, did you ever see my Expanse intro recreation in Kerbal Space Program?

I paused viewing The Expanse because I caught a glimpse of The Undoing. It is a 6 part Crime, Drama, Mystery TV miniseries starring big names, Nicole Kidman & Hugh Grant. Viewed the first 3 episodes last night and look forward to the murderer being revealed..

The Undoing done and well worth your time, trust me :)

No Spoiler - Watch it.

Back to The Expanse and nice how they do the physics in space :up:

Only made it about three episodes deep on Undoing, it's pretty bad. Kidman looks like a plastic doll that came off the assembly line too soon.

Finally started Vikings, so far not very interesting but I'll give it another couple episodes.

Season 2 of His Dark Materials is nowhere near as good as the first season. Every character is annoying now and just does dumb things for no reason.

Just finished Mandalorion s2.
Star Wars just works so much better in small doses, and without the endless Skywalker drama

Well you're in luck, because Disney is planning another three gazillion small doses of Star Wars over the next two years!

Finished The Boys S2 and Mando S2. Both excellent.

I’m completely out of shows at the moment. Time to find something else worth watching...

Is the pacing better, though? I watched the first few episodes of season one and was mostly bored.

It jumps around quite a bit, but I wouldn't say it's better.

The Queen's Gambit again. Opened up my Netflix-account to the TV of my parent's TV so my brother's line of the family could watch it, learning german.

Another 9/10 from them.

Just finished The Undoing. I don't get the hype. Hugh Grant gave a phenomenal performance, but I didn't find the story that interesting. Looking forward to Raised By Wolves.

Last night finished season 2. All considered I'd say worth watching :up: The details (sets and yes some is CGI) I still find mesmerising.

Next is The Queen's Gambit.

The Queen's Gambit was great. If you haven't you should... I am now into The Expanse, season 2 already :up:

Just finished The Last Man on Earth. I knew it had been cancelled in 2018 but didn’t look for spoilers, hoping that they’d at least been able to cobble together an ending of sorts.

Nope.

The Mrs asked I look out for a TV series named A Discovery of Witches. It isn't too bad at all, now just 6 episodes in on season 1 and 2, some 18 episodes. Yes not too bad :up:

After binging How I met Your Mother in 2 months, we started with Lupin on Netflix. First episode was fun.
