Watch something real like wrestling.
I put on the Countdown show + The Buy in for the recent Double or Nothing AEW PPV.
I could watch the main PPV tonight or tomorrow if I get the chance.
The Tag Team match in the Buy in Pre show was pretty cool.
The Stadium Stampede match is insane. Im gonna miss the mad matches when this lock down is over. They really wont work with an audience
We got Jericho vs Tyson happening.

The A Word - series 3 of this amazing drama finished last night, and it's as good as ever.

Finished my DVD/VHS to watch pile, about half of it is going.
My shelves are looking a lot less cluttered.

(Lots of anime went, some of the VHS tapes ill get on DVD when cheap enough)

Started rewatching Babylon 5.
Its sad that this series will never have a decent release, every release of it is a bit naff quality wise.
Watching the DVD version of it (PAL region) and its far from perfect, from bits with loads of grain and bits with video glitches, vertical blue lines on some bits.

Its still a good watch though

Trial of a Timelord

First 3 stories ranged from meh to okay (Brian Blessed in anything is always an entertaining treat.), but the final story actually turned out pretty good.

The Main Story was about Housing Rental Evictions.

Funnily enough, I just finished watching the new SAC 2045 series.

The CGI animation is decidedly uncanny valley and the first couple of episodes don't really go anywhere, but it's decent enough when the plot finally kicks in and yeah, the Tachikomas are back. Ah well, still better than most of the other anime series on Netflix, not that that's saying too much.

I couldn't even watch the first episode, same with Arise.
Ive seen gifs of the animation..............
Hate that they made Makoto skinny, know shes in a different shell and that but she seems to better fit a strong looking shell
That actual GITS SAC DVDs annoyed a lot of people by being drip fed with whats on them, 4 episodes each was the norm, then the last two had 3, the second series a lot of people waited for the box set

After watching the first three series on BBC 2 years ago, the lockdown has finally given me the chance to catch up on the Netflix-exclusive series 4 and 5 of Arrested Development.

In fact I watched both the remix and original cuts of season 4.

Watched that Eurovision film on netflix with will Ferrell. Wasn't expecting much from it but really enjoyed it in the end.

Hotel transylvania 3 about 568 times as the eldest bairn is obsessed. Not as good as her previous obsession of angry birds 2.
