Just finished this today. Easily the best series I've seen for a while. I'm definitely going to have to pick up the follow-up movie and then watch the new series on Netflix (not psyched over the change in animation style though).

I just watched the first episode of The Watch.

I'm a big fan of Sir Terry, and I have to say that none of the previous attempts to bring Discworld to life , both animated and live action, have been less than satisfactory and this also fails absolutely. This isn't Discworld and it isn't Ankh-Morpork.


But I loved this.

If you aren't too precious about what this was originally based on, it's actually pretty good. The cyberpunk/steampunk setting is interesting, and the comedy is pretty good - it's more Red Dwarf than Discworld. A lot of the criticism aimed at this show has focused on supposed "casting for diversity", which has seen races and genders changed, but the Discworld books were often like that too (add in species and undead rights too) - Monstrous Regiment, Witches Abroad, Soul Music...

I can't see this lasting too long as a series because of the backlash, so I'm going to make the most of it while I can.

Surprised to see that all ten episodes of the second half of Vikings final season have dropped in one go to Prime - it's always been weekly before. I'll definitely be getting through that soon as I can.

I´m at season 5 of Supernatural. Being a big Buffy and Angel fan, and Supernatural being a similar type of show, I love it. It´s not a particularly deep show or anything like that, but it´s good entertainment and both me and my wife enjoy it greatly.

I´ve also begun watching season 2 of The Boys. Now that is a great show too.

Started re-watching Black Sails again last night. Always meant to go through it again. There's a severe lack of pirate themed stuff out there, especially grounded in reality stuff.

Just started Truth Seekers on Prime. Seems intriguing after the first episode. Can't go wrong with a bit of Pegg and Frost although this is atypical for them with Frost as the star and Pegg only playing a supporting role.

Started out really strong, ended up a little mediocre and stale.

^Dark started out strong, but I lost interest a Little along season 3. I thought it ended alright though.

Ok, so this one is not just good, it´s freaking brilliant....a must see for fans of the more twisted superhero movies like Hancock, Kickass, and Deadpool. It´s incredibly violent, offensive, and raw. Well acted too and featuring some nice plot twists too.

Finished the first seven seasons of Ray Donovan. A pretty decent crime drama show. Unfortunately it was cancelled and there are a lot of lose ends in season 7.

I don't remember the film much except for that as a fan of the books I didn't enjoy it too much. The TV show was done better in every possible way. The bits you weren't familiar with Jonas were probably the bits from book 2 that were getting set up early.
