Re: The best new and returning TV series of 2020?

Just binge watched both series of Titans. Didn't expect to get hooked as I only started it as there was nothing else I fancied watching (didn't fancy starting something new to me of many series) but I did get hooked. I like the fact that they don't explain everything but hint at things that get exp...

I've never experienced such wonderful levels of Schadenfreude. Good for the game that they've been caught and properly f**ked over for it. No sympathy for them. Their championship wins are forever tarnished now, and I include Europe in that. They didn't qualify for it through legal means, so they sh...

Re: The best new and returning TV series of 2020?

Finally got to the end of Succession’s 2nd season, what a brilliant show. Easy to tell that the creator worked on The Thick of It and other Iannucci related things but rather than just being targets for satire the characters have some real depth - despite being relentlessly horrible cvnts. 9/10 wou...

Re: Game of Thrones - Books/TV (Full of spoilers mark nothin

Really enjoyed the opening scenes that were clearly a nod to the first episode and the arrival of Robert to Winterfell. Thought it mirrored it all very well and set it up nicely in a "here we go again" kind of way.
