    Watching the West Wing for the first time - just onto the start of season 2 and did not appreciate my emotional investment!

    Might give this a go.

    Wondered where I recognised the guy's voice from but haven't seen any of his previous stuff. Then a I clocked it, Absolute Radio voice overs.

    Finally seeing a new taskmaster now (theyíre spread out). At first look itís very very bad compared to the old ones Iíve been watching, though I suppose that happens all tv shows. Maybe bad timing on channel 4ís part.

    The first episode (assuming that's the one you're watching) was pretty crap bar 1 task. It was a lot better in the next episode.

    The ďlook in my wheelie bagĒ thing is all Iíve seen. Maybe itís a low point but if itís any sort of sample then itís lost it. For a show thatís normally very good, itís fucking terrible.

    I think it looks shit from the trailers I've seen but I keep hearing good things about it. Same with Ted Lasso too.

    Wait, is Ted Lasso actually good then?

    Because the trailer I saw made it look about as entertaining as a flesh wound.

    That trailer was a war crime. I'm not going near it because I can write the jokes in my head. All the shit jokes.

    Yeah I suspect it's building to something but while it was entertaining enough it was a nothing episode. Decent but filler.

    Season 4 of The Crown is out next week. Reviews are out, and the first two I've read have got completely opposite views on Gillian Anderson as Thatcher.

    The Independant say she's "magnificant", while the BBC is pretty scathing.

    But she flounders badly as the Iron Lady, a role in which she appears to have been directed to mimic the head movements of a turtle. She's forever craning her neck from side-to-side as if scanning for a tasty lettuce leaf, while over-egging her Thatcher impression to such an extent she is close to unwatchable at times.
    I wonder which side I'll fall on.

    Whoever recommended Marvelous Mrs Maisel... fuck me, itís a revelation, cheers.

    I recall doing an Amazon Preview survey thingy, the ones where they Chuck you a voucher, on the series marketing and basically saying the tile, poster, trailer etc all made me extremely unlikely to watch it, looking as it did like a Mad Men for women in the worst possible way, but the first 5 episodes have been excellent.

    Edit - aha, it was Raoul on this very page...

    And yes Rachel Brosnahan and those boobs. Jesus.

    I’ve managed entire first season in one night, and added the spectacular first ten minutes of season 2 before realising I’m well past bedtime.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Ted Lasso is alright. Nothing like the trailer. It's quite a heart-warming number, with a few proper lols. Crucially, easy to digest in one super sitting.

    The only downside is the main "baddy" - he's a cunt, a crap actor, and a bit of a silly stereotype.

    This page has resulted in Marvelous Mrs Maisel being added to the list of shows we're watching. We'll probably start it over the weekend.

    Don't let me down, dickheads.

    +1 on The Queens Gambit being the best show in a long while.

    But it also came as my (complete amateur) faschinaion for chess has come back from out of nowhere (started Youtubing shit).

    I'm onto the second season of Last Kingdom and a mix of the main characters allegiance swapping sides so many times and the timeline jumping forward I've got no idea who any of his mates/woman he's shagging that he's very sad about dying are because there's 3 of them a week.

    If you just remember that Uhtred always wins and is kinda BFFs with Wessex it's fine. Everyone else is (entertaining) background - except Beocca, who is a leg-end

    I was taking it all a bit too seriously and then he defeated that Warlord by jumping over the enemy shield wall on his own vs 800 men and none of them bothered to attack him and I just started to treat it for the good airport book trash it is.

    I don't normally like stuff like that - Vikings and GoT can get lost - but The Last Kingdom was really really enjoyable.

    Finished the first season of Mrs Maisel earlier tonight and I loved it, however I do feel it dipped slightly in a couple of the middle episodes.

    That’s very much the pace of each season, I’d say having made it to the last couple of eps of S3. Start strong, finish strong, entertaining but a little insignificant in the middle.
