Really enjoyed The Boys S02 and Raised By Wolves S01 so far this year.

Surprised Raised by Wolves got made. It's hardcore sci-fi - much more so than something like Expanse.

Misfits cropped up somewhere as something to watch. It was enjoyable I but had what seemed like an extraordinary number of actors who went onto bigger things.

I've watched about 15mins of 'The Savoy' which seems reasonable of its kind so far.

The Restaurant Director Thierry is an acquaintance from our days working in London. He is also an ex Toulouse scrum half.

Long Way Up is beautifully shot at times. Quite enjoying it as contrived as the electric bikes / utes can be. Amazing landscapes.

Not a return as such, but found Hill Street Blues on the C4 app. As brilliant now as it was then, and has aged superbly.

Google tells me Veronica Hamel is now 76.

Gulp.

Cracking television.

Just finished the most recent Top Boy on Netflix. Top Boy Summerhouse also good. Looking forward to another one, whenever it comes out.

I thought it was ok, but got bored with the teen drama aspect and chucked it in.

Tried with Kobra Kai and was amused for a bit, but it started to get a bit more focused on its target audience (teens, pre-teens) as it went on with the Karate.
That's absolutely fine/smart show writing, but I lost interest.

The Boys S2 was pretty mediocre, just finished it.
The dialogue gets exposed as pretty bad/soap level when they choose to slow things down like they have.
A whole lot of nothing happens this season, just deck chair shifting and that's poison for a show like that.

They are trying to cover a few bases but I am enjoying the pop references and knowing nod to the original films.

Yeah, I liked that aspect of it but it wasn't enough to make up for the bits I wasn't enjoying.
