Legion is off it’s head! So confusing, but cool show. The lead character is schizophrenic and the show portrays that really well

Just finished binge watching 13 reasons why season two. Got to admit I’ve shed quite a few tears watching those last two episodes. It’s a great show, a groundbreaking show. Just a shame that the “awards” have not recognised such an amazing TV show.

I’m ep 2 into Season 2 GE. Does it get better? I think it’s looking like it went a season too long.

The Hannah scenes this season are far fetched so far

Well... just watched the finale of The Americans. An utterly fitting sendoff, I'm genuinely quite sad its over.

Just finished watching Hannah Gadsbys comedy show Nanette. Wow. I wouldn’t say it’s a comedy show, but something everyone needs to see, especially after some of the conversations that have been had on here regarding men and the treatment of women

6 parter called Cardinal on SBS On Demand, well worth a watch.

Logies should have died decades ago

I was off work sick last week, so I caught up on a lot..

Finally got around to watching the first 6 or so episodes of Parks and Rec, so I understand the memes better now

Caught up on the last season and a half of Game of Thrones... boy did that get good! I don't know how I avoided so many of the spoilers! (but not all)

I only have 1 more episode of Black Mirror to go so I'm trying to make that last

I nearly knocked over the 2 seasons of the Crown within 3 days, so my first morning back at work I was speaking British :doubt:

I'm going to get into Peaky Blinders next, that keeps popping up on my Netflix suggestions

I see they are changing the actors for season three of The Crown. I hope it works.

Yeah, getting used to new actors is never good to begin with, though I guess it has to be done in a show like this where the timeline has progressed and characters are now supposed to be much older in seasons 3 and 4.

I do like how they just try to find whichever kid has the biggest ears to play Prince Charles

Anyone been watching “Who is America”? Been loving it wish he’d do one here, imagine the madness he could get from Hanson and Katter!

Anh Do's Brush with fame is the most underrated tv show, such a shame it's only 25mins.
Also, Nick Cummins bachelor for best new comedy

Another new Netflix show... cooking documentary style show...

Fat, salt, acid, heat. It's extremely good if you like that sort of thing.

Just watched the opening episode of Bodyguard. Some of the most riveting TV in that first 25 minutes I’ve seen in a long time. Compulsive viewing. Great show.

Finished watching Bodyguard. This is definitely the best TV show I've seen this year. Absolutely gripping stuff. If you haven't seen it, you must see it.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.
