^I liked The Crown, which I watched with my wife and my mother in law. I didn´t think there was any decline in acting, writing, or my interest in the story.

I watched the first two episodes so far and am loving it! I think if you do not know the games then maybe this may seem a bit weird but if you have played them them this captures them so well and the sets and props are completely accurate to Fallout 4's designs. 

It is good as well for being its own story and not just trying to adapt one of the games though it is still very much in the spirit of the games.

I finished season one of Fallout yesterday and this is hands down the best adaptation of a video game universe I've ever seen. These normally fall flat on their face but this was brilliant. I don't want to say any spoilers about it here but if you like the games this is a must watch (it's also canon). It also has the most extensive pre-war depictions yet seen in the franchise with many more flashbacks that anticipated and it feels like the franchise just finally delivered perhaps not hard answers but certainly a path to follow on how the Great War actually did start.

They have obviously held some staples of the Fallout series back for later seasons which it was kind of disappointing not to see: there are no super mutants encountered, deathclaws are only teased via bones and most of the robot types didn't appear. They missed a chance to have Ron Perlman featured in any capacity but we all know we wanted to hear him deliver the 'war, war never changes' line. Fallout 4 didn't have him do that either but he at least still had a cameo as the newsreader in the intro. 

The series certainly captured the inherent wackiness of Fallout and I hope that will continue into the next season and hopefully at least get a cameo from the Zetans.

First two episodes of the latest season have dropped and while more entertaining than the average Chibnall era episode they were also tonally all over the place with especially the first one going from comedic to outright horror as fast as you like. The opener was also clearly designed as a new stepping on point episode for the show even more so that the 15th Doctor's first episode the Christmas special with many things directly rehashed from early 9th Doctor episodes.

Watching Dexter...didn´t see it back when it first aired but Neflix in Denmark just brought it back, so I thought I´d watch it while I can.

I´m in the middel of season 5 and I´m still binge watching. I love it.

The first four seasons are best, but season 5 to 8 are well worth watching. I think they could see it was in a bit of a decline, so pulled the plug before it went too far downhill.

I just started watching this last night. What would you do if you got caught in a stage musical?

If you're not a fan of musicals, all the singing and dancing might get a bit annoying, but I love it so far.Wink

From the makers of Band of Brothers and The Pacific, so it's up to those standards. Based on true stories, with the usual liberties for dramatic effect. There's some pretty intense combat scenes, which are really well done.
