Finished raised by wolves. Might be the only one to have said that ;)

Was really looking forward to this. Started off okay but then just meh ! Had to finish the series. Had some decent moments but didn’t live up to the hype

Soul on Disney Plus. Not too bad but a bit too close to some of the others (such as Inside)

We blitzed that over a couple of days a week ago. First episode was garbage, it did pick up a bit, but I agree it was far from the hype. Like you I'd been looking forward to it and it let me down. So much rehashing of Alien, and Ragnar was Ragnar again. Lots of padding.

Had Hoarders on as background noise while I do things

One episode was funny as the guy had a stack of porn and bibles, they also find S&M gear and a wibbly thing, then came the drama

Been doing the usuals, got through both A Christmas Storys, Home Alone 1, Die Hard 1 and 2 and Krampus, would do it at a better rate but the Old Man is obbsessed with those No expense spent Hallmark garbage fests so been stuck with those.

Terminator Dark Fate, last night.

It was ok. Tiny bit predictable and formulaic. Great effects and very attractive Latina protagonist, but if you go there looking for inspired, thoughtful dialog, you're going to come away empty-handed.

Not terrible, just not above average in any way.

Peanut Butter Falcon, however.....

I don't get the hate for that film. I enjoyed it.

I think it's from the hype for it, it just fell flat and for some of the die hard fans they don't like the fact it's moved away from the Connor storyline and it glosses over the litrature (a bit like another certain Space franchise has done), I just found it a bit Meh tbh, not bad enough to change the channel if it comes on but not one I'd race to see again.

Documentaries make for good background noise.
Caught up on the "Unearthed" one,

Also watched the first episode of Sweet home on Netflix, a few lines into the Dub and had to switch it back to Korean....
Seemed quite good so far

Watched that wrestling doc "Beyond the Mat" from the late 90s.

Fantastic doc, but it kinda confirms that wrestlers are completely insane. The bits with Jake "the Snake" Roberts were really grim.

Try to watch the Resurrection of Jake the snake, he hit some really dark times, Dark side of the ring is also interesting
Its been a pretty dark year for wrestling, the speaking out movement has really put some of the current gen in a new light, its a shame some of them are like that back stage as in the ring some of them are bloody fantastic (no pun intended)
Behind the scenes its a messed up business, not as bad as football is............

I'll have to have a look out for those, I guess like most things you have good & bad. The more I see & hear about Mick Foley the more I like him. Weird that I find the backstage stuff so interesting when I've never really taken to the actual thing.

As for football it can do one, was obsessed with it for years, but between VAR, wall to wall betting firms, the obscene amount of money in the game, letting clubs like Bury go to the wall etc etc...just no interest in the game any more.

The Chris Benoit stuff is really interesting (To me), what happened to him has helped change how combat sports treat concussions,
Mick Foley has books, very good books about all the stuff he did, most that have been about do
The 98 King of the ring - Hell in a cell match vs Undertaker is probably one that has a lot of stuff going on that just watching wont explain. It all has predetermined outcomes, but how the bloody hell do you plan such stuff?
A lot of podcasts about wrestling can be interesting listening just for stories.
Its a shame we lost Roddy Pipper as his had a lot of legends on it, they got up to some right s**t

Same here. I was too old for the WWF when it arrived here, it seemed like silly panto (which it is to an extent). I randomly picked up a Mick Foley bio from a charity shop and it really opened my eyes to just how physical and real the pain can be for these guys. It might be predetermined, but it isn't all fake, they go through a lot to put on a show and it's far from glamorous. Also, Mick turned out to be great with stand up when he toured with that.
