Gotham series 3 - not too bad but dwindling a little now. Assuming the trailers i'm seeing are for season 4 on TV - so i might stick it out.
I believe that season four has been picked up by E4.
Yes it’s about to start in the next week or so. It’s a shame it’s E4 and not channel 4, the same goes for Marvels agent of Shield as most viewers are missing out on HD and have to suffer blurry vision.

My latest film is Justice League. DC does the Avengers and does it quite well.

Edit - poor spelling as usual

Started watching 'The Terror', new series from the US. Bit quiet to begin with but i think this has potential, two navy ships (late 18th century) get stuck in the north pole and crazy things happen. Hope its decent

That's on my list. I watched a preview thing and it seemed okay.

Recently finished s2 of Santa Clarita Diet. It's the best.


Also, I very much rate We Are Still Here. A horror film from a couple of years back. A real throwback horror film and brilliant. Not all that scary but what it does get right is the carnage.

Black Panther

Going in I thought it may have been too hyped but I really enjoyed it.

Santa Clarita Diet truly is amazing television, It's made me love Drew Barrymore quite a bit.

The kids' bedtimes are getting later so I haven't watched a decent horror film in yonks. Really itching for a good supernatural type yarn along the lines of the Conjuring or Sinister.

THIS.

It’s not quite up there with SCD but I’m watching The Good Place on Netflix and that’s great also. Takes a few episodes to really get going but each one is 25 mins or so so it’s not a chore and it has a couple of amazing bit part characters in it.

The Good Place is excellent. At first appears like a cheesy sitcom, but it is funny and the plot twists and turns across the seasons. Very well written, and Ted Danson is great in it. Good to see him in a good comedy role after last seeing him being very serious in Fargo (which was unexpected and a surprisingly good performance, didn't realise he could actually act).

Heard a new series called Deep State was taking the internet by storm, might give that a go later as the first episode is out.

About to finish watching 'The Night of' which is an HBO series from a couple of years back. Pretty good

I've got Netflix so i'll also watch a bit of Lost in Space later (got the day off - want a lazy day !)

Captain America: Civil War

Haven't seen it since watching at the cinema, cannot believe that was over two years ago already. Anyway, a good film if not quite cohesive.

So far it's nothing especially original but it is well made, really enjoyed the first two episodes.

Only watched the first episode. Very well made. First episode was okay but I’ll watch the rest for sure.

First half of Lost in Space. Ok, decent enough family show with high production values, but nothing special so far. Deviates hugely from the original show.

Kinda glad it does deviate ! Wasnt a fan of the 60's one.

But yeah hoping the other episodes will be decent. Watched the second episode of Deep State, nearly gave up. Getting a bit confusing for my poor small brain ! Got Walking Dead finale today and then i'll start finally watching Fear the walking dead

Just got done watching the Andre The Giant Documentary. So damn good, everything I wanted from a documentary based on the Legend. Highly recommended!

Look for it on Youtube while you still can.
