Currently watching the pilot of The 100... first impression - the acting is terrible! So what’s the deal with this show? Does the acting improve? Is it worth continuing? It’s got 6 seasons, so it must decent...

I enjoyed it, how many times is it on a week? Might turn me off committing to it.

Started watching the Madeleine McCann doco on Netflix. It’s a bit of a slow burn. 8x 1hr eps, and you already know there’s no resolution.
The McCann doco was incredibly slow. I watched the first ep and then couldn’t be bothered with the rest...

I have about 3 eps to go of that doco. I’ve been struggling to find motivation to push on.

I heard they asked the McCanns to be part of the doco, and they declined.

I feel like Netflix agreed to 8x 1hr eps thinking they would accept. Once they declined, they’ve probably struggled to figure out how to fill it out.
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

I’ve watched it not a bad show, interested to see where they take it now. It’s a prequel to Z Nation, so they don’t have much time before things went a little crazy in that universe.

I read that it was set in the Z Nation universe. Doesn't have any of the zanyness of Z Nation. Its pretty intense.

I was just thinking this morning that Ozark season 2 must be out soon, so I checked Netflix and it is there. Anybody watched it?

I haven't yet seen the new season of GoT, so I'm going to use the 10 day trial of Foxtel Now to catch up on the 5 S8 episodes so far as well as catch next week's finale.

Has anyone else tried this yet?

The first 3 episodes or so are brutal. It gets much better, S2/3 are both really good IMO.

Oops apologise on this one. I put the kids to bed last w/e and turned on season 2 and the wife was like... we've seen this... And yes we had already watched it. Let me rephrase, Season 3 must be out soon.

I know it's a tough field at the moment with GOT, but 'Bluey' has to be up there with the best shows on atm. Surely? The dad jokes come thick and fast.

I just started on Chernobyl. Next day that I have a bad day at work I'll re-watch episode 1 and reflect on how the power plant minions fared.

Just watched "What/If" on Netflix. A load of old malarkey, but hard to stop watching. I like the review that said something like... "they must have been trying to make a bad TV show". Yes, yes I think they were and it was fun watching.

Watching The Hot Zone on Fox, the story of how Ebola almost got loose in the US, similar delivery to Chernobyl, worth a watch

Reading the title, I thought it was going to be about Scarlet Johansson sharing an apartment with Blake Lively.

Little disappointed
