Corporate - a fairly amusing and well observed comedy about lower management drones in a corporation that sells everything from toys to weapons of mass destruction.

The Boys season 2. Really enjoyed season 1 and am expecting good things of season 2. It has a slow start in the first couple of episodes.

Ted Lasso - 4 episodes in. actually not too bad, again not that funny, but some amusing moments and likeable characters. Juno Temple is the best thing about it.

Ive tried Lovecraft country ep1.
Less message more story would be good.
Vampire monster things were interesting.


By ep2 its a confused silly mess and theyre ramming home the anti-white message with a sledgehammer. It better get better.


It hasnt. Its all over the place. Incoherent jumble frown

Yep, that is true. Ep 1 was kind of interesting. Ep 2 was absurd. Ep 3 kind of interested me, and I quit half way through Ep 4. I'm done.

Currently watching Doc Martin Season 9 which continues to be delightful.

Doom Patrol

Rather enjoyable super hero weirdness that feels somewhere between traditional super hero stuff and Legion tv series. Like Lexx it gets me watching the characters and oddness and the often ropey effects seem part of the charm.

I tried 1 more episode. What tosh. They cancel penny dreadful but make this junk? They mustve known it was directionless claptrap when they were making it.

Young Wallander

Seems just about okay. Story is about immigration and gangs, apparently being in gangs is okay if you're an immigrant because you have it tough. It looks like a poor immigrant has blown somebody's head up with a hand grenade - I'm going to guess it's not so. There's a rich white swede unvolvwd with helping the illegal immigrants, so it'll be him. Illegal immigration is fine, police are facists or okay. Everyone except the lead is English, Young wallander is played by a Swede. Definitely a show with a heavy handed message.

Finished the two seasons of PATRIOT.

It's really good and i would heartily recommend it. It has its own style in the writing and camerawork that i really enjoyed. Lots of great characters and surprising moments. Excellent acting from Kurtwood Smith, in particular. It ends just well enough that a third series it obviously deserves isn't too badly missed. It doesn't end on a very specific cliffhanger, though you get the feeling things were broadly set up. I think it's criminally overlooked. I overlooked it myself for a few years.

It has lots of nice music in it, mostly songs, and i think needledropped score as opposed to composed.

Angel (the Buffy spinoff)

The first (pilot) episode. It must be 20 years since I've watched it & I really enjoyed it. The DVD looks great, but the first season is 4x3. Let's see if I can go through the whole series, maybe two episodes a night.
