Toast of London series 1-3.

Some really funny moments and some great slapstick stuff but watching it all together shows that each episode pretty much follows the same beats.

Finished Jack Ryan, really enjoyed that

Just way too much to watch at the mo ! Man in the High Castle Season 3 is back, Walking Dead is back, Star Wars Resistance has started (that does look quite kiddyish but i'll give it a go) and other shows

Just need lots of time to watch them all !

I'm up to the last episode of Bodyguard a d really enjoyed it. Good quality British cop drama :)
Finally saw Leg which was decidedly awful, The Darkest Minds which was just pretty pointless and finally Venom which I expected to hate but is in my top 3 Marvel movies now!

The Equalizer.
Ok the TV series, so far almost watched the first season and
Its odd, there isnt any really rubbish episodes, a few stand out ones
Backhome - for the humour, The Children's Song - for the action

Also, he dont get paid for this? How does he fund the stuff he does?

To be fair most sitcoms do. In a way it's what makes them successful; you pretty much know what's coming butnot exactly how. And if they get it right (as they did with Toast) it's just as funny.

The Brucie episode is fabulous, as is the one with Bob Monkhouse , and ALL the Clem Fandango bits are hilarious. Tbh seaaon 3 wasn't quite as good as the first two, and everytime I hear Matt Berry doing a (real) advert on tv, you can only imagine them in a sound studio together.

Watching The Video Game Years on Amazon Prime. Started watching the 1985 one and loved it, but boy oh boy are there some super nerds on it.

Going to watch it from the beginning now, the 1978 episode was a bit dull but looking forward to getting into the later years. Good mix of reviews/arcade stuff etc.

after having used some CEX credit to buy a season 1-7 blu ray box set of the walking dead, I'm gorging myself on that at the moment. Already seen the first 3, but now onto season 4.

Just bought the second Speccy film - LOAD "Film 2" by Andy Remic. Shall watch that over the next few days

Watched the first Purge film yesterday, not bad at all. Also second season of Making a Murderer, very addictive

The Numbers Station. Spy thriller with John Cusack, it was ok, but nothing special.

Luck-Key. Fun Korean action comedy.

Red Planet. Decent space-mission-goes-wrong-movie. Nothing remarkable but passed the time just fine.
