I would recommend to try the 3rd ep at least. The first couple were a bit out there. I think it was the 3rd ep where you start seeing what’s actually going on, and the show takes a turn.

Intrigued by you saying you’ve been getting back into comics. I’ve been contemplating it, thinking I could read them on the commute to work.
Marvel unlimited is great, i got it on sale for like $70 for a years subscription and it has basically every comic marvel have ever released, and new comics come on it 6 months after release. So if you're like me, you can just jump in and start reading some comics and you'll never run out of material

I just a really cool series about Thanos.

Our family are BIG on lego masters, not sure the age of yours but my kids at 7 and 5 respectively and we binge watch them in the arvos or on weekends with the kids and some popcorn. Super fun show.

Check out Planet hulk. Wonderful little series.

I was formerly a wolverine collector. Got about 7 boxes worth somewhere.

Yeah same ages. They love the idea of the show but would rather build their own Lego, or play outside than watch other people build. Of course they do love the final results.

My girl is happy watching **** and being ok with it, but my boy is just hurting to go and do his own thing after watching an ep.
Just really good, fun family tv. Great show.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier finale fell a little flat for me
Thought the season overall was very good though

Yeah I didn’t mind it. There were no surprises and your predictions from a few days back were bang on.

I’m liking Captain Falcon. The fight choreography with the shield and wings was amazing. A lot of potential there.

Is anyone else watching Cobra Kai? I spent last weekend binging the Daniel LaRusso Karate Kids in prep, and have just gone to town on this series.

It’s so good. It’s cheesy, but I think they’ve been able to catch that Karate Kid magic. Johnny just steals the show.

Loved the Lego Masters finale. Always great to have Brickman blubbering with emotion. Such a knockout formula with this show.

In previous seasons it looked as though the teams were made up of people that knew each other but this year doesn't look that way. I wonder if they just recruited the best Lego builders and put teams together. The team dynamic seemed different this year?

interesting. I didnt get that vibe at all. I think the super team might have come together in an expo or something... but all the others pairs seems to really intuatively understand their partner and their struggles and how to pick them up for me to believe they're smashed together teams

Watched “Grand Army” on Netflix over the past couple of days. I’d tried it once before, but the opening was somehow not appealing. Very glad I stuck through it. Ambiguous and thought provoking sometimes, difficult to watch at times, obvious at other times. Worth watching.

Watched Ep 1 of Loki. Dang, I think this is going to be the best Marvel series so far
