Just watched first 2 episodes of Chernobyl. Amazing stuff I must say, horrific but amazing.

Thousands of people petition Netflix to cancel Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens... which was produced and broadcast by Amazon Prime #-o

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/ ... -pratchett

Finished it last night. Really enjoyed it on the hole, there were a couple of casting choices that didn't match my mental picture of the character (I'd always visualised Shadwell looking more like Alfred Steptoe than Chuck McGill), but otherwise it felt like a really faithful adaptation of the book. Recommended.

What We Do In The Shadows

I changed my mind, it is getting better with every episode with ep7 being a highlight
Spoiler
The cameos, even if they were green screened, from famous actors who have played vampires in other productions was very funny and dare I say a tad genius.

A great upbeat story of nature re-surging at Chernobyl. Animals once lost to the region have come back because man has fucked off.

Only carries one sword in the books, which this is based on. ;)

Geralt certainly looks more witchery than he did in that mock-up photo of Henry Cavill a while back.

I'm tentatively very excited for this.

Looking forward to Knightfall Season 2, especially since it has Mark Hamill as the Templar Grand Master.

Sadly, I'll have to wait til it comes out on Amazon/Netflix.

I started watching a show on Netflix called Timeless -- a story about a government-run time-travel experiment, and a conspiracy to radically altar American history. Wouldn't have chosen it myself, but my wife was keen and now I'm actually really enjoying it.
