I really enjoyed Haunting of Hill House. Not as much as the wife. She didn't like Ozark.

Forgot my most important question. Will Phil Gould be on it?
It's a subsidiary of Foxtel, so it's all the Fox Sports channels, ESPN's and bein sports

Just caught up with the first two episodes of the Murphy Brown reboot on Ten Play. Loved that show, just as good as ever.

Loved Hill House and I’m loving Castle Rock. The ep that followed Sissy Spacek was a slow burn, but overall it’s good. Worried with it being a JJ Abrams show, it’ll go down the way of Lost.

Any Luther fans in here?

Fantastic series.
Oh my God. Such a good show.
Series three gets a little wandering and lost, unfortunately.
I think that it was better than Season 2. They both pale in comparison to season 1 which was magnificent

Just finished watching "Harold and Lillian A Hollywood Love Story". Documentary about people involved in the film industry. Really worth watching.

Just watched the first episode of "The Latest". Late night Seven News show, with Michael Usher. Gosh he is a professional TV journalist. I saw him interviewing on Sunrise the other day, and he wouldn't let go of "fob off" answers. Good program.

Interesting to see him bandied about for a return to Nine, after both Stefanovics have been dumped from morning TV on Nine. Karl has surely suffered one of the biggest falls in Australian TV history. Can't say I'm sorry in the case of Karl.

Through the first five episodes of Escape at Dannemora on Stan.

Slow going... but amazing acting and production.

Finished Escape at Dannemore. A bit slow going to start, but it is one of the best TV shows of the year, no doubt. Incredible acting performances, and the production was outstanding.

Just finished The Kominsky Method on Netflix. Can't say I liked it a lot. Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin are great actors. Worth it to see that I guess. There were some very big laughs but it is more an "amusing" show. The big laughs were few and far between. Can't say I've really like Michael Douglas in anything since The Streets of San Francisco. What a great show that was.

Thank you YouTube for delivering me an episode! They have to do a reboot of this!

Speaking of great performances I watched Split on Netflix tonight. McAvoy was amazing.

It's a M Night Shamalya (?) Movie. Without giving too much away it's a story about a guy with a split personality.

I’ve heard it’s sort of a sequel to Unbreakable. I’m dying to watch it

And a prequel to the new Mr Glass, which actually inspired me to watch it.

There were some great acting and actors in it. Not the usual same culprits who star in Aussie TV. Some oldies got a run .
It was a good story line too.

Just watched Killing Eve. It's free on ABC iview and really worth a watch if you haven't already. I guess we're going to have a Season 2!

Watched Cobra Kai. Pretty lame but the first few episodes aren't bad for a bit of 80's nostalgia. Couldn't get through more than a handful of episodes.

Just finished Season Three of Narcos. Not as good as season one but much better than season two.

Any views on the opening episode of True Detective Season 3?

Got to admit, I'm struggling to work out what on earth is going on.

Opening was a double ep, now on ep 3, digging it, much better than season 2 but you need to pay attention - phone off for the ep
