Well I kept with Normal People, it kind of just stopped. Nothing much happened (aside from a load of bonking) to be honest.

Half way through A Suitable Boy on the iPlayer, so only about 17 hours to go :-o

Very good though...
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Up to Episode 3 of the new Series of "The Crown". Given it's 80's context, it was always going to be a favourite of mine but it is very good IMHO. Not perfect but we can discuss later to avoid spoilers (but I'm guessing there is a divorce coming)

I enjoyed these two. Available on All 4.

Moscow Noir
Pulsating stylish thriller set in Moscow in 1999. For young investment banker Tom Blixen, making a career-saving trade means that enemies and killers turn up like Babushka dolls: one follows another.

The Same Sky
From Walter Presents comes a compelling and stylish German drama set in 1974 about an East German spy sent to West Berlin on a 'Romeo' mission to target a female analyst from NATO

A TV series of The Right Stuff? I will be watching this. The film was terrific so big moon boots to fill.
Watching it now. It's ok, not brilliant.

Really enjoying No Man's Land, about a French guy who goes to Syria to find his sister who's fighting with the Kurds.

The Simpsons, season 28. This is currently on nightly on Ch4. Haven't seen much of the Simpsons since season 15, but it is a pale shadow of what it used to be.
"Nice pics mate" comments only! No criticism please.

Equipment: Camera, Lens, Goretex Y fronts.

I think for a cartoon / animated show that's ran continuously for 30 years they've done not bad, but I do agree - the episodes now are nowhere near as funny as those from the Mid - Late 90s.

Season 31 has recently been added to Disney+.

Currently watching Cars That Rock with Brian Johnson on Discovery Turbo.

This particular episode sees Brian getting hands on with a fair few Aston Martins, including a couple featured in Bond films.

Fear City - the three-part documentary on the Mafia in New York and the FBI wiretaps. Fascinating stuff. On Netflix.

I watched this and thoroughly enjoyed it. Never realised how much Rudy Giuliani was involved in the prosecution of the Mafia as a New York DA in the 80's before he became mayor. What a sad figure of fun he has become compared to his former self.

Plus using "Hard Times" by Baby Huey and the Baby Sitters as the opening theme song for each episode was an unexpected bonus!

Just started watching 'Alien Worlds' on Netflix.

It's like a nature documentary but for space.

The Mandalorian - Series 2 all episodes available to view.

For those yet to watch Season 2 Chapter 16 (the last one in this series), there's a post credits scene.

Repair shop Christmas special. The normal series needs to carry some kind of tear jerker warning like they do for bad language or sexual content for other shows but doubling down with a xmas special is too much!!!

Watched Tom Hanks' Cast Away there. Interesting that FedEx backed the film, even though one of 'their' planes crashes in it. Great for any Ray Mears fans.
