Thanks to whoever mentioned Succession on this thread. I checked it out and binged the first season in two days :o :o

Amazing television. :thumbup:


Yeah it’s probably the best tv I’ve seen in the past ten years. Season 2 is even better. Some all time classic jokes and the finale is superb.

Binged season 2 over the weekend and that was a weekend very well spent.

Spoiler: show
The Pierce dinner scene :thumbup: :thumbup:
The Finale :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

oh, and L to the OG rap scene is probably the funniest thing I've seen for a very long time :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:



There were at least two all time classic gags from the season:

1. Syphilis, very much the MySpace of STD’s (Tom)
2. I think it’s worse when there’s just one protestor (Cousin Greg) - looks at lone man holding up sign saying “Roy plum” - I don’t think it’s as offensive over here (Cousin Greg)

:lol: Absolute genius. Tom and Cousin Greg are just an outstanding comedy duo.

Connor Roy is another source of unimaginable entertainment for me. When he did the eulogy for Mo I almost had a fit laughing. :lol: :lol:


‘The first pancake’ :D

I was also convinced of his guilt.


I'm convinced he worked at a death camp but not that he was Ivan the Terrible. It clearly was a show trial to give the survivors some richly deserved catharsis. I was surprised with the judgment of the Israeli supreme court but think it was right. It was hard to fathom how badly the death camp survivors were treated when they landed in Israel after WW2 - the presumption that they must have done horrible things to fellow Jews to keep themselves alive.

I found that very interesting actually, and if there is one thing the series could have done more was to delve into that and the history of survivors in Israel a bit more. IMO of course.

One part that stuck with me was the little old man waiting outside for the trial to begin. When ask why he was there his reply was "I told you. I lost them all."

Spoiler: show
actually Boba Fett? Theory is this was why press screeners weren't sent out, to avoid spoiling. I'm not going to sign up to Disney+, nor stream it, so not really bothered to find out


Nerds who also won’t subscribe and who’ll probably not see it for years are also interested in the spoilered question. :)


With the recent movies being so crap, I’ve been interested in talks of TV series about supporting characters.

Hell, after revisiting the 80s cartoon Droids, I thought its plotline had some very compelling elements to it. It features our duo, pre-Luke, working for a merchant called Mungo Baobab (clearly the writer was an Aussiephile) who has to deal with Imperial backed droid gangster that supplies them with fuel, enslaving the populous to do so.

It sounds a bit nuts, but I love the seedy side of that world and would be happy to see more about how average people (not friggin Jedi) work inside the Empire. That maligned aside at the casino in the last film had elements of a good story, for me, possibly explaining that greed, apathy and or politics allowed an ‘Empire’ to reform so soon after what should have been - and was portrayed as such in the remixed Jedi film - a landmark, war ending, freedom installing victory.

... or, how about a Boba bio or the life of Han as a young man... :? I think most fans of both ‘Star’ series would be okay with something substantial that isn’t a reboot.

Finally finished Justified. An enjoyable ride.

Will probably look into Jack Ryan next.

Last few episodes of this season of Sunny have been a bit crap, most recent one not great.
They maybe really do need to wrap it up, trying to evolve the show a little too much.


Rick and Morty episode 1 was great!

The focus group episode had some good moments in it, but the one where they went to the zoo was painfully unfunny. A farcry from how good it was around seasons 6-10

I thought last season had some of their best. (Jimmy Buffet one is my favourite ever probably) but also a fair few clunkers.

Focus Group one was good, first episode had some moments and the choking one was decent/ok.

Found it very funny

Agreed although the early seasons when Danny DeVito were in it are some of the best comedy moments ever for me, great TV. I’m liking how psychotic Dennis is becoming season on season, but apart from that it’s falling off a little I feel

Found that South Park seasons 1-21 are available on Prime. Been picking out some of the best episodes again and rewatching. Some of them from the middle seasons are absolute gold.
Using their IMDb ratings as a guide, can't remember which episodes were in which seasons.

I kinda what I hoped Disney would do with the movies outside the trilogies. Have some balls to do something a bit further away from the established canon.

I'd love to see some Old Republic stuff...

Jack Ryan is really good. Blitzed through the first season this weekend.
Some of the stuff is pretty heavy hitting when taken in a contemporary context. Major terrorist attacks in Paris, Syrian civil war, people trafficking refugees to Europe in shitty RIBs.

I like how they brought in the main plot point of Rainbow 6 and tied it into the Ebola outbreak of a few years ago.
Otherwise, the only links to the original books are the names of characters. The major plot points are current, rather than Cold War/90s like the books.

I went through the comics of this ages ago and when Guardians of the Galaxy came out, thought they ripped it off, but then learned the latter is an older series. I don’t think they could go there without critics having a go at comparing the two.

... white human protagonist, hot badass chick with brightly coloured skin, powerful warrior who doesn’t say much, wise cracking smaller creature, big thing that isn’t humanoid (Groot/Elbee)

I'm 2 in. It's oustayed it's welcome a bit but does need to now conclude. Sam Esmail is destined for great things, he's a superb Director.


Just watched S4E07, one of the finest hour's of TV I've seen, Rami deserves another Emmy the acting and direction are outstanding.

Didn't even know they did comics of it! I wouldn't even mind if they didn't draw from the games. That timeline isn't even canon now anyway. But there is so much room to play with by going way back in the timeline, and you don't have to worry about tying things into the canon.

The 3rd series of The Crown is excellent so far and you’ll forget about the changes in the cast by the end of the first episode (Helena Bonham-Carter is brilliant as Princess Margaret, in particular)

The episode about Aberfan is heartbreaking :((
