    We're a couple of episodes in, but really struggled to remember what happened last season. I'd advise everyone to rewatch it unless you watched it really recently.

    Finally got round to watching DC's Titans.

    It's up there with Flash and Arrow as the best DC series.

    Yeah, I'm having the exact same problem with it.

    I've given up on all of those now. Not because I went "Fuck this!" but because Sky stopped recording them at some point and when I went to start catching up I realised I'd lost interest in the circular character arcs.

    Stranger Things Season 3 is damn good. I thought it was better than the second but not quite as good as the first, however, the final two episodes are two of the best episodes the show has done.

    I was close to binning it after the first two episodes were at least three quarters bad knockabout comedy and thirteen year olds angsting about their relationships but it picked up dramatically in the third so I'll see it through, assuming it doesn't go back to that early horseshit.

    I felt similar to John. I've 2 episodes left, which I'll knock out tonight, and it has picked up. I'm not a fan of the tartification of Hopper, mind

    In an effort to post more about things I like than about things I dislike: Just started Dark. Iíve read that people compare it to Stranger Things (which it is way better than) and Twin Peaks (which it is a bit less avant-garde than) but the fact itís in German makes it occupy an entirely different space in my opinion gauntlet than either of those two. Really like it so far

    Agree with @Spikey M on each of the points raised there, albeit I wouldnít say itís the Ďworstí, I think itís on par with S2 which had its flaws too in comparison with S1, and both still stand up as great TV, which only pales a little now due to just how high the bar has been set of late.

    @mahow, Iím totally with you on that. For the very same trope you cite at the end.

    Also. Glad to learn today that Drake x Netflix is yielding a 13 part Top Boy series 3.

    Kano and Asher D back on our screens is all kinds of excellent.

    Season two of Daredevil really dragged - didn't enjoy it at all, but persevered, and opted to watch season three as I'm a bit of a completist. The difference is huge - there seems to be so much more at stake

    that it's much more gripping. Flying through this series in comparison.

    Started watching Taskmaster recently. Really enjoyed the first series but not enjoying the second one as much due to the people on it. I find Richard Osman annoying and Doc Brown is just boring. It's still decent though.

    5, 7, 4, 1, 3, 2, 6.

    5 and 7 for me are far ahead of the others with 6 being incredibly far behind the rest. The others can easily be swapped about.

    I've not ranked 8 as it hasn't finished yet but it's going to be in that middle pack.

    Whichever one had Bob Mortimer in is automatically the best and is unlikely to be beaten.

    Five. Which also had Sally, Nish and Mark who all could have been the best contestant on the show had it not been for Bob.

    Started watching Dark Tourist and it's pretty good.

    Drew me in as I noticed that they went to Famagusta (where my Dad was born) in one episode which I've just seen.

    I've been 10 years ago so it was pretty surreal but he doesn't do the best job of explaining it all. The 'ghost city' is just a section (albeit fairly sizeable) of the actual city.

    The episode on Japan is probably my favourite thus far but I also like the small bit he did on Gurbanguly/Turkmenistan.

    I enjoyed it but the guys voice is fucking annoying.

    I want to watch the last one at the torture house in the US at some point. The geiger counter stuff was apparently massively overhyped (According to bloke on reddit)

    The woman (Vitamin D is good for radiation!) was fucking annoying in the Japan episode who was constantly on the Geiger counter. They made a huge deal about the driver saying 0.2 was dangerous but always failed to mention that he said that in regards to living there.

    Taskmaster:

    David Baddiel
    Ed Gamble
    Jo Brand
    Rose Matafeo
    Katy Wix

    That'll be rubbish, I reckon.

    I think Jo Brand will be alright, actually. I can't abide Rose Matafeo and I don't think David Baddiel will be great either. No idea who Katy Wix is.

    I've only ever seen Wix on WILTY.

    Matafeo's biggest problem is her accent.

    I saw rose matafeos show at Edinburgh last year and it was very good. Not sure it deserved the prize but I'm looking forward to seeing her on TM, I think she'll be good.

    Saw the latest Stranger Things. It started out way too goofy I think, and they made a mockery of Hopper for very much of it. Also he looks well shit, like he's probably on the sauce IRL or something. But then in the last 4 episodes it picked up a lot.

    The series is what it is, I know, but the one thing that annoys me the most with it is still that you get absolutely no explanation of what the hell the Upside Down actually is.

    I guess, but what is the īpurposeī of it, and why does it have buildings from the real world but is full of monsters who dont seem like they would have built them, etc? I know this is asking kinda stupid questions but it still bugs me that noone ever at least has a theory or any of the lore is remotely explained. But I guess the clue is in the title
