    Based on the trailer (which perversely I'm sharing anyways) this didn't look promising:



    But I'm halfway in, and damn if Danny Boyle isn't capturing a lot of what made the Sex Pistols brilliant.

    It's on Hulu.
    GO!

    Shetland Series 7 is out now on the BBC. It is a return to the darkside of the northern islands.

    I’ve been rewatching Dexter the last few weeks and been enjoying it. I seem to remember it fell off a bit but season 4 is pretty great right now.

    If The Lazarus Project is available where you are that’s worth watching.

    Think sci-fi Groundhog Day with a bit of About Time about it. Was interesting until the end of the first episode when a reveal meant I was hooked. Really interesting premise.

    Can highly recommend “Kleo” on Netflix. It is made by German Netflix, so it doesn’t suck and is actually pretty enjoyable. Dark humor, period references and a bit of magical realism with a story of Kleo, an assassin for the GDR betrayed by her country who seeks a bit of revenge after The Wall goes down. Feels a bit like “Fish Called Wanda” and “Killing Eve” mixed with “Goodbye Lenin”.

    My wife, an attorney, recommends “Extraordinary Attorney Wu”. I haven’t watched it, but I understand from my wife that the actor who plays the main character is exceptional. And the concepts addressed culturally are familiar to her from her work in Korea.

    You can watch 'TROM' if you can find it in the US. It is subtitled in a combination of Danish and Faroese.

    If nothing else, it is worth it just to see the Faroe Island scenery as location. You will want to plan a visit to the islands.

    Basically the end of the earth....

    Andor. The whole season is out. It's the best Star Wars show by far and possibly the best SW overall.

    +1 - started slow but tension increased with each episode. Actor who plays Andor is great.

    Watched the first episode of Andor when it came out and enjoyed it but set it aside for the winter when baseball is over. Will pick it back up soon as I have some rowing to do this month.

    My kids are hooked on the David Beckham show on Disney so we’re pacing ourselves with that. He helps out a U-14 team in London for whom he played as a kid.

    I am also watching the Chris Hemsworth one. It’s nothing groundbreaking but interesting enough.

    I agree. Been laid up with Covid and binge watched the entire series. It is terrific.

    Andor is way better than baseball.

    We're watching Expanse and Andor. We really enjoyed The Boys and look forward to a new season. What We Do In The Shadows is a guilty pleasure.

    The Expanse is good, but it’s a lot. I’m working through it in sprints of 5-6 episodes over a few days, then life gets in the way again.

    Just started The Peripheral. Really enjoyed the book, 3 episodes in to the show and it’s off to a good start.
