Actually watching the re run of Babylon 5. Never watched it all back in the day.
I might do that. But also I might do Battlestar Galactica (the newer one) first.

S8 walking dead mid season finale.

Ive struggled with this show of late. Since S7 maybe, its been a drag. Episodes are a slog on times where in the past, at least something "wow" happened. I found series 8 the worst. This is supposed to be 'all out war' but its anything but. Guns are fired back and forth and characters that have never been seen before suddenly have a line of dialogue, then later on they die and its made out to be traumatic for the cast, its boring.
Anyway, the big ending of this series was quite a shock, but i feel I'm watching it now just out of loyalty rather than actually enjoying it.

Godless on Netflix.

Really liked it. Very slow and some storylines didn't really go anywhere but worth a watch I thought.

Sometimes the producers don't get a choice - special shows or holidays can lead to "pre-empts" where an episode is replaced. It can also be down to other factors (like the writer's strike the other year).

Still feels like they want to drag out a 6 episode series and make it a year

Put me off Walking dead

Well that and that it seemed to be going nowhere fast

Brooker said he ran out of time to do a 2017 wipe. A real shame. A highlight of the year for me and with trump he would have had a field day.

let's see if i can remember everything

BILL = very funny
GONE GIRL = it was okay, not astounding
LEGO BATMAN = just as funny as .....
THE LEGO MOVIE = still glorious
MALIFICENT = perfectly fine AND different until they actually changed the bloody story, then it fell apart
INTO THE WOODS = it was fine, felt a bit too stagey and streep didn't 'old crone' it up as much as i wanted

as for the brooker type nonsense try 2017 A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF A YEAR
THE GALAXY BRITAIN BUILT
christmas university challenge / mastermind
300 years of french of saunders

Power Rangers movie from last year.

Was OK, a bit meh. Had a very uneven tone, seen worse films.
