TV show thread

Gruen was great tonight.

I find myself watching more and more ABC these days.

And with that statement, I find myself more and more turning into my parents.

Scary.

Finished expanse season 2. Sooo much better than season 1 and really got me in. Still patchy and Holden is a tool but worth a look. Sadly you probably have to sit through season 1 first to have any hope of knowing what is going on


#3943

Other than live sport does commercial free to air actually have anything worth watching?

That’s a rhetorical question by the way.


#3944

Might have to have a look at that one.


#3945

If you like you’re sci-fi it’s definitely worth a look and if you allow for the star trek season 1 quality discount you’ll find something to like in it.

I’m also a big bab5 fan and the first season of that is pretty terrible save for about half a dozen key episodes.

Expanse definitely has the scope to achieve what Bab 5 did well before box sets were a thing. Albeit without the galaxy wide focus. It’s far more grounded in our present reality and understanding of physics than b5.

I’d never watched Hard Quiz before last night, I was extremely skeptical.

It’s good. Really good


#3947

Also speaking of good, Rosehaven is absolutely sensational. Helps if you are deeply in love with Celia Pacquola (as I most definitely am)


#3948

Agree with the above. The only broadcast TV I watch these days is Have You Been Paying Attention on 10 and Wednesday night comedies on the ABC,


#3949

Have You Been Paying Attention is also good.
Ironically - has a few of the original ABC crew.


#3950

I watched Rosehaven last night for the first time.
Enjoyed it too - will have to get the first season for a look.


#3951

Couldn’t agree more.
The majority of stuff is just mind numbing.

On Gruen they we’re looking at the the latest piracy ads and analysing why we pirate in the first place. Well lack of content is a start and if the commercial channels do show anything worthwhile - then it is littered with so many ads that it ruins the experience anyway.


#3952

Finished stranger things 2 last night. Has a show ever stuck it’s landing better?


#3953

Just watched S01E01 of Scrotal Recall / Lovesick - looks promising if you like British humour.


#3954

Sit back and enjoy, ripping show.


#3955

Oh yeah. Latest curb an absolute cracker. Accidentally texting someone on purpose. Classic!!!


#3956

Kyle Chandler is a criminally underrated actor


#3957

The new Netflix series “Dark” that comes out on the 1st of December looks like another winner.


#3958

#3959

Intriguing. Will definitely be adding that to the must watch list.


#3960

Has potential.

I enjoyed Stranger Things but this looks to be a little bit more serious.
