    Yeh, loved this too, Attia was monstrous, if I recall she properly went to town on Caesar's ex.

    Born just a little too early to enjoy the success it deserved. With GoT viewing numbers it could have run and run.

    I'm guessing you can choose between them somehow?

    Edit: yes, you can change between whatever combination of audio and subtitles you want in the app.

    Can you change it to subtitled? On God I've just watched 5 episodes with them being dubbed! :facepalm::D
    I'll try and change it tonight. :thumbs:

    I don't know how easy it is to do on the ps3/ps4 app (I use the ps3 thingy to watch on the telly downstairs most of the time), but you click on the speech bubble icon on the bar at the bottom on the web app. Then you can choose to your heart's content.

    yeah I recall it being hurried to a crap end. See also: Deadwood. And Carnivale. Although they were just left hanging in the wind completely

    Just started this. It's really beautiful to look at and i'm enjoying the slowness.

    Finished Godless last night and feeling bereft now. I loved it, strangely meditative beautifully shot western.

    had to be in the right place for season 2 of the Good Place. That is, in a silly mood. Binged it to the penultimate episode. Its still funny.

    I thought it was great. It's a genre that's really out of fashion, so was nice to see if with a slightly more modern take and some good female characters.

    Silas Loom The people have spoken, the bastards.

    Hmm. Don't recommend.

    Three episodes in, and even after finding the subtitling option, this show seems risible. Everything that was natural and sweet about 80s retro in Stranger Things seems forced and contrived here. All the horror stuff - the dead birds, the Clockwork Orange contraption on the ginger kid, the flickering lights - is just silly.

    None of the characters make sense. I'll carry on watching to see whether the copper has any interest, at all, in the giant drug stash he's just found, and whether there's a sensible explanation for no-one having noticed the hidden secret door into the Springfield nuclear plant until now, or why anyone would keep their heels on to climb down a rope into a pit, but I feel horribly cheated by Netflix and by Urban.

    Tis the season to be dismembered: -


    Cool as fuck poster, though it's not an actual screenshot from the movie, as there are no boobs on show.

    Quite enjoying Punisher. It's not the relentless violence fest that some people have made it out to be.

    I keep thinking about it still (Godless), in some ways it was really old fashioned, for having actual goodies in it, and a satisfying ending.
    There's so little of that now, so much stuff being all baddies / anti-heroes and clever tricksy plots. I think it was better than Westworld. Plus it had horses - all that amazing film of the relationship between people and horses which I never knew was even something i could appreciate.

    Been watching Easy. It's mostly middle class Americans having sex while being terribly self-obsessed. I quite like it. Got lots of people in it from various other things, and Orlando Bloom, which was weird. It's an anthology type series, each episode following different people, but they often have a bit of overlap and tangentially know each other in various ways.

    Another one for the Godless bandwagon. Just finished it this evening. Im not a fan of westerns but this was really well done. A strong cast and story and it had some of the most cinematically beautiful scenery I have seen on tv.

    tommers Your disco needs you

    Yeah. It was traditional in some ways but very modern in others. And absolutely beautiful. Any western which devotes half an hour to a kid learning how to ride a horse is fine by me. I thought Maggie and Whitey and the Sheriff were great characters. And the schoolmistress. And Frau Bischoff.

    And Frank Griffin is a proper villain. Evil but with his own twisted morality.

    Absolutely loved it. Slow building but struggling to think of anything I've enjoyed more this year except Black Sails.

    I love that our hero was actually unashamedly called Mr Good. :)

    2 eps left of Punisher and I think of all the Netflix/Marvel shows I've enjoyed this the most since the 1st season of Daredevil.

    Jessica Jones was really good, but sagged a little and got a bit silly. Luke Cage looked great, but was far too long. I gave up on Iron Fist, and have yet to start the Defenders.

    Punisher has been a tough, taut, action, thriller with a lot of heart. It has been a lot gentler than I expected. I like that it has the government and the military as the bad guys, and something mythical or super powered.

    It's more like Batman, without the gadgets. I really like Micro as a character too.

    Anyone else seen Big Mouth? I think it's great, proper funny and deals with topics that you rarely seen discussed on TV, let alone a cartoon show. Took me a couple of episodes to 'get it.'

    The gross and totally non-PC Hormone Monsters steal the show for me.

    I see Manhunt: Unabomber is now on Netflix - I really enjoyed it. The early bits, with Sam Worthington doing the savant genius FBI profiler thing thing, made me think it was going to be really hackneyed and shit. But I was won round. Paul Bettany is superb as Kaczynski, and provides depth and breadth to playing him. And there is so much nuance to his performance that when you get him and Worthington in the same room, what happens between them feels believable; they're both smart, they're both tools, but ultimately (the not completely real person played by) Worthington is wooden and uncomplicated and gets trounced.

    I binged this last night and this morning. Loved it too especially the gloriously OTT gunfight in the finale:

    The townsfolk shot over 100 of Frank Griffin's men and he only rode in with 30 :D :thumbs:

    I keep dabbling with it but not sure.
