The Good Place season one.

Absolutely loved it, would definitely recommend it. Damn annoying about now having to wait weekly for season two episodes though.
Surprisingly good, it takes some unexpected twists. You do have to get past Tahani's terrible acting though, they should ditch her. Season 2 is developing nicely
Tahani's very British accent does slightly annoy me sometimes but I do think the actress who plays her has very good comedic facial expressions. We are pretty much up to date now which is good/annoying.

The twists were fantastic, really did not see some of them coming.

Crimson Peak.

Written and directed by Guillermo del Toro it was meh. Took too long to get going and when the ghosts appeared it tried too hard to do the jump scare. Had potential but was just lacking.

Doctor Strange. Disappointing, one of Marvel's weaker ones for me. The best comic movies make the silly stuff seem normal, this didn't.

a terrible trio of terrific movies .....

NO ONE LIVES - it was actually quite good, although it was crappily put together, with zero backstory, but luke wilson's uber serial killer is very interesting ..... just needs a much better movie, perhaps pit him and THE MARINE together onscreen WWE eh?

AAAAAAAAH! - how the hell can i describe this, humans are still like apes, it's hilarious and brutal and utterly weird!

Blue Planet II, the first episode was incredible. Superb filming and fascinating wildlife.

The Babysitter: a thoroughly enjoyable comedy gorefest from MCG. Very surprised by how good it actually was!

Bladerunner 2049: it was good but it just felt a little flat to me. It think it was the small cast of characters that I was disappointed with but as an examination into whether AI's can grow to feel emotions it worked really well.

Sons of Anarchy from beginning to end, and that ending :shock:

I'm stuck on Pup watch for a while so need to pick another series, thinking maybe Castlevania.

The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington.

Pile of pants and way too long but somehow also slightly enjoyable in a bad way.

I watched Sons of Anarchy in its entirety, and that Finale on the last season silenced me :shock:

Been trying Narcos but have been finding it difficult with the Puppy running about as my spanish is too rusty not to watch the subtitles.

I second that. This is another great series from Sir David Attenburough.

Went to see Justice League with my boy. An improvement over Batman v Superman but yet another weak villain with end the world blah blah blah. Also saw John Wick 2 and love this series. Simple plot, great action. What Keanu does best!

Robot Wars seems to have found it's old magic again, with the right blend of interesting chat and robot action and presenters who now know what they're doing. Also good that pretty much every half decent robot gets two bites at the cherry and not instant elimination for one bad move (eg Razor last season), and more aggressive house robots.

Some good robots, interesting combinations of weapons and a grand melee to look forward to. The only slightly crap thing is the fog of war which is a bit useless.

Thor: Ragnarok

Loved it. Yes it's flawed and quite possibly will not hold up on multiple viewings but on first watch I really enjoyed it.
