If anyone is interested you must watched raised by wolves.

Ridley Scott to a T.

I can see it being very very good.

Agree0 Disagree0

Finally watched Cobra Kai. Its really good, has the 80's vibe.

I didn't think I was going to like it but wow what a show. If you like the movies back in the day then you will love it.

Never admit deafeat!

{Ed001's Note - it is better than the films I think.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2020 11:37:07
It's very retro which I like, loved the movies way back when so it's refreshing to see they have not ruined it Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I think they have enhanced the movies with the way they are giving you Johnny's perspective on what happened. It has put a whole new light on everything. It is surprisingly great.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Sep 2020 15:59:59
Watched it all now, can't wait for season 3, right cliffhanger on the end of season 2.

{Ed001's Note - I wish they would hurry up! Still The Boys is out now so there is something to watch for sure.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Sep 2020 09:59:03
Billy Butcher is the MAN!

{Ed001's Note - so good! And Mandolorian is back soon as well. It is a good time for TV at the moment.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Sep 2020 09:32:43
Yes Ed, Watched the trailer yesterday looks absolutely brilliant, I thought Mandolorian was brill, really well done.

You seen Raised by Wolves yet?

{Ed001's Note - not yet mate, I read the blurb about it and it didn't sound that good. Was I wrong about that?}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Sep 2020 10:13:22
It's very Ridley Scott put it that way, I have watched the first two and it I like it, visuals are awesome that's for sure. I will let you know mate.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure that is a good thing. Recently his stuff has been awful, that sequel to Blade Runner was the most boring thing I have ever fallen asleep during. I even went and sat on the toilet to edit the sites on my phone half way through out of boredom. Dreadful film.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2020 17:57:34
Anyone watch the remake of Lost in Space?

Every episode of Season 2 is just a competition to see who can survive the most ridiculous scenario. These people should have died 50 times over.

I mean these people can't even walk along a beach without some kind of explosion or disaster happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jun 2020 18:46:16
Anyone watching Gangs of London? I have been really impressed by that. Very good action sequences in particular.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jun 2020 14:23:02
I have mate, finished it. really good, Sean the main man grew on me, i really thought he was a bit of a weasel first few episodes.

All in all a good show though, do you think they will do another?

{Ed001's Note - I hope so, it was a very good show.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2020 23:14:04
The last Dance - great documentary about serial winner Johnson and the Chicago Bulls. Love it

Born winner - wish Arsenal had some.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2020 12:17:25
Has anyone seen the feature length episode of Red Dwarf that aired recently?

It was quite funny in parts, but very cringey in others. If you're a fan of Red Dwarf then you should probably still watch it, but does seem to have lost it's magic a little.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 16:13:45
Has anyone or is anyone watching Ozark?

I think i'm enjoying it but not sure, its a little Ray Donovan mixed with Breaking bad esque!

i will continue and let you know. lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2020 10:57:56
Just yo let you know, I've done all three seasons.

Wow, what a show.

It's a must watch.

{Ed001's Note - really? I watched a bit and got bored, never went back to it. What is it actually about?}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2020 11:02:57
Difficult to explain but its a family guy who gets caught up in laundering money for a drug cartel. the proverbial hits the fan again and again. the casting is great and Bateman, Laura Linney and Julia Garner are superb.

Murder, deceit, drug lords, mobs, love and suspense - it has it all.

Takes a few episodes to get going but I could not get enough of it.

Defo worth a watch.

{Ed001's Note - doesn't really sound like my type of thing to be honest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2020 23:11:53
Found series one very very very slow - is two or three better.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2020 14:29:02
It is slow, veryuch breaking has esqe but far better. Keep watchin is all I can say.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2020 22:46:24
Ed, so did you find time to watch the defiant ones?

Just watch Wolf of Wallstreet and the big short - just awesome. Why Leonardo didn't get an Oscar 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - I completely forgot. Did you enjoy Wolf of Wall Street? DiCaprio was good I agree, but I found the film itself tedious apart from one scene.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 15:10:48
Loved it Ed. I’m a capitalist. I think the hero worshiping, how they celebrated and had zero morals was interesting. Thought it was funny and a brilliant film. Leonardo was just amazing and the “true” story somewhat unbelievable. A film I would put in my top 10 if isolated for covid 19

Big short - great acting, great story, Steve was awesome and I loved the topic of the film.

{Ed001's Note - I just found it utter nonsense and complete cack. The guy was a thief, not a capitalist. That is not capitalism, it is fraud.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 15:13:12
I’m about to watch The Expanse - is if that sucks, given you don’t like W of W plus your choice of football teams - we might be done!

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure if I should be keeping my fingers crossed you don't like it or do....}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2020 06:50:41
I'm so glad I've heard someone else say that Ed I agree it's utter rubbish that scene on the boat in the storm what a load of sh1t
I've sort of gone off Hollywood films I much prefer Korean or Japanese films.

{Ed001's Note - it was just a guy's fantasy retelling of his life to pretend it was better (and he was better) than the reality. I would put money on the fact he was a lonely man with no actual friends and it is much easier to hide behind a story like that than it is to admit he was miserable. You don't do that amount of drugs if you are happy with your life, you use them to avoid dealing with life.

I can understand that, a lot of Hollywood films now just use big budget effects and big name stars to hide the fact the scripts are terrible.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2020 13:50:25
Agree Ed no one really acts anymore it's all fancy camera angles and cgi

That's why I like Asian films you tend to get to know the characters better.

{Ed001's Note - they don't have the budget so have to act usually.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2020 11:54:32
Just got done watching the entire 4 seasons of The Expanse again.

Ed001, did you finish Season 4 in the end? What did you think?

{Ed001's Note - just finished it and loved it. It is a fantastic show. It deserves a much wider audience.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2020 10:09:59
hi guys, never watched or seen anything on it. what's it all about?

Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - it is sci-fi. Basically the main theme of the show is the friction between those still living on earth and those who have grown up on Mars and those who are from colonies elsewhere (Belters). That is in essence what it is about, though there are other stories running through it. It is basically about the Belters being the oppressed minority caught in between Mars and Earth's animosity. While it is fiction, they have tried to keep very close to scientific accuracy, while not letting that destroy the tale.

I highly recommend it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2020 14:22:20
Thanks mate, I'll give it a go.

{Ed001's Note - I hope you enjoy it too.}

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Mar 2020 14:01:55
It is utterly brilliant northernbeasle. It's one of the few Sci-fi shows that actually takes the "sci" in Sci-fi seriously but not to the point that it's boring.

Star Trek it is not, so I wouldn't walk in expecting anything like that. However, I do see this show as a technology bridge between present day and Star Trek. In the Expanse they don't use warp drives, laser beams or anything that's scientifically out of reach. They still use current weaponary like guns and nukes, except they have the addition of rail guns and Nuclear fusion.

There is one major problem with this show though, and that's some of the acting is a bit cringe. However, it doesn't take away from the story or the shows quality.

And by the way, the CGI is some of the most impressive I've seen in a TV show, especially given the budget they had for the first 3 series.

Hello all.

Has anyone been watching Messiah on Netflix ?

I think its interesting and really enjoying it.

{Ed001's Note - yeah actually, just seen the first few episodes and it is intriguing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Feb 2020 10:04:12
I wasn't to sure at first but the more I watch the more I like it, good casting as well. I've just watched "the trial" which was the best one yet.

Keep watching Ed !!

{Ed001's Note - I intend to mate. I have just watched ep 3, so that is next I think. It is one of those shows that draws you in.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2020 09:15:16
Morning Ed, I have watched some more episodes now and what a show, really powerful !!

I'm not religious at all but the whole Messiah thing has got me hooked. one scene when there in DC is goose bumps !!!

hope you still enjoying it mate !!

{Ed001's Note - I haven't had a chance to see any more since, but I am looking forward to getting to see the next one.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2020 14:22:49
You watched the rest of it Ed?

{Ed001's Note - I have got to DC now and past the bit I think must have hooked you. Not quite finished yet but near the end. It is really good so far, though I don't know how they can end it without it being an anticlimax!}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2020 15:46:54
I'll talk to you when you have finished about that! Enjoy Ed.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2019 11:23:08
As I'm not subscribed to Amazon Prime all because of The Expanse, has anyone got any suggestions for what to watch on there?

Anything but superhero stuff, it's just not my cup of tea.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jan 2020 20:08:56
Is Mr Inbetween on there? If so that is well worth a watch. Gets better as it goes along - the Socks episode is one that makes you drop everything to see what happens.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2020 04:49:37
Unfortunately not Ed. Shame as I did a little reading on it, and it seems to be something I'd like.
I'll check on NetFlix when I renew my membership.

{Ed001's Note - it is a really enjoyable but short watch.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2020 14:31:50
I did a little bit more digging on Mr.Inbetween and it's a spin off from a movie called "The Magician" which came out in 2005.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0461989/?ref_=tt_sims_tt

{Ed001's Note - I am going to have to see if I can find that to watch.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2020 09:35:30
I know you said no superhero stuff, but you have to be an idiot to miss out on "The Boys"

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jan 2020 02:26:53
I keep looking at it and thinking about it Ed. I'll give it a watch soon when I get a bit more time.

{Ed001's Note - watch it mate, make time, it is worth it. One of the best shows of all time. Season 2 is coming up soon as well I think.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jan 2020 11:50:24
The Boys is a great show, one of thee best things i watched last year after Ray Donovan. defo worth a watch.

{Ed001's Note - see that's it now hsf, you are outvoted and have to watch it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2020 10:22:25
Another comic book show, though not super hero this time, is Deadly Class - that is well worth a watch too.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2019 01:19:50
Ed001, have you watched The Expanse season 4 yet? I am just about to start watching the first episode!

{Ed001's Note - I had literally only just noticed there was a new series out now. Haven't had time to watch anything, my parents got here a couple of days ago.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Dec 2019 11:13:06
Really enjoyed Season 4. You can tell they had a bigger budget this season too, as there were more planet based locations than in the previous 3 seasons, and somehow they improved the already really impressive visuals.

I won't go into storyline details as I don't want to ruin it for anyone. The show basically follows the same concept as it has been for the last 3 seasons. It takes a handful of characters and creates multiple storylines that are all connected towards the end. I'm quite happy about that as it's worked for 3 seasons already.

The new characters that were added all fit well but they came at the expense of other characters. We didn't see any of Anderson Dawes(OPA leader), and we don't get to see Fred Johnson(Navu captain) until the last two episodes. However they are frequently mentioned, so I expect to see them in further seasons.

The thing that impresses me the most, is how consistently accurate the science is with everything except for the Protomolocule. It reminds me of what Neil deGrasse Tyson said when he was reviewing the movie Gravity. He said "First get the science right, then distort it at your leisure".
And that's exactly what The Expanse has done. Anything that we can definitively prove as a fact, they don't mess with it(such as the effects of Gravity). But when it comes to the promomolocule that's where they let their imagination go wild.

It's science fiction done correctly, in my opinion.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jan 2020 20:08:10
it is an excellent show. Really enjoying season 4 so far

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2020 00:45:57
It's probably my favourite active TV show at the minunte, closely followed by Stranger Things(which might be returning this year instead of 2021 - HYPE!!).

{Ed001's Note - I quite enjoyed the first episode of The Witcher too. I love Stranger Things, the sooner that is back on screen the better.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2019 11:30:16
BBC War of the Worlds

Shocking, nothing like the book, don't bother.

{Ed001's Note - glad I am not the only one who thought it was awful. I can't think of a single redeeming feature of it. Not one part of it I would say was good.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2019 21:01:19
The only thing that made it interesting, is that it's set in the early 1900s. But they've gone about it all wrong.

There is no construction of the fighting machine for example. But to sum it up, it seemed like the director and writers just watched the 2005 Tom Cruise WotW, then put it in Woking in 1910.

My favourite movie is the 1953 version personally.

{Ed025's Note - im with you hsf..

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Dec 2019 16:18:56
I was looking forward to it and the first episode wasn't to bad but the rest of it is not worth watching. BBC put some decent shows out this year but this is one of the bad ones. Disappointing to say the least.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Nov 2019 10:22:40
Anyone seen Watchmen yet? I am loving it so far but it is early days

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Nov 2019 19:34:31
On episode 2 just now, well filmed that's fer sure. Stylish show,

{Ed001's Note - I have seen the first two and it is extremely good so far. I just hope it maintains this level, or even, like The Boys did, get better as it goes along.}

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2019 22:22:26
Anyone thinking of watching El Camino. dont! Seriously absolutely shocking (I love breaking bad) but this was horrendous. Utterly pointless

What makes it so bad? I'm not bothered by spoilers so feel free to let loose.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2019 14:30:23
Few good shows I have watched recently that I think are well worth:
Temple
The capture
The Boys

In no particular order.

I enjoyed all of them for various reasons.

Not everyone's cup of tea but The Flash, Arrow, Strikeback etc start again soon as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2020 22:42:59
The Boys is excellent. Funny, entertaining and well written.

04 Oct 2019 23:22:43
Hey folks,

Apologies if this is not the place for this question but I remember something being mentioned here sometime ago regarding this subject.

Does anyone know of any reliable, decent quality streaming services, predominantly for Sport (3pm premier league kick-offs), Champions League Games.

I recently took out a 6 month sub on a recommended provider but it's quality has seriously waned in recent times.

The cost of Sky Sports & BT Sport is getting beyond a joke, so any recs would be greatly received. Apologies again if asking this is inappropriate.

Thanks in advance.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 06:07:31
Your best bet is to go to the boxing page and ask Championship Rounds for a streaming site. He apparently knows some very good ones.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 11:35:00
Thanks hsf.

Will do 👍

07 Aug 2019 12:18:36
Anyone else seen Pennyworth yet? It is the story of Alfred, Batman's butler, as a young man. So far it has been really good with some great details like the name of the local boozer and the streets it is on. Well worth a watch I think.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2019 15:12:08
I've been keeping an eye out for when that was due out, didn't do a very good job though as I didn't see it had been released. I will have to give it a try, anything around the batman characters and I will give it a try. I'm looking forward to the joker movie too

{Ed001's Note - it's been good so far but early days as I have only seen the first 2 episodes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2019 22:21:42
Anyone watched The Boys on Amazon. Interesting take on a superhero show. Worth a watch with some good characters.

{Ed001's Note - yeah really good show, I have read some of the comics. The one whose gf is killed in episode 1 was based on Simon Pegg in the comics and drawn to look like him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jul 2019 22:48:46
Ed, are you the same Ed001 on the arsenal page?

Did you get round to watching the defiant ones? Amazing story of rags to riches and what talent, hard work & a bit of luck can change your world. Jimmy lovine’s story is pretty special.

{Ed001's Note - the Ed's numbers stay the same on all the pages.

No I haven't got round to watching it yet. I will have to do that soon.}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2019 11:11:23
watched first episode of "The boys" and it was not what I was expecting, really good though looking forward to the rest. Cleaver take that's for sure.

{Ed001's Note - it is a real shock to the system if you don't know the comics.}

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2019 08:01:11
Finished the first season now and what a great show, could not stop. Excellently done in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - I agree, without giving anything away, what did you think of the ending?}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2019 09:43:48
I'm not sure, good in a sense it's left us wanting more but not sure who the 'American' is. Loving the Russians though, always good to make things abit darker.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2019 09:44:21
Lol. Replied to wrong thread. Sorry

{Ed001's Note - so glad you told me that, I was sat there all confused then!!}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2019 09:59:52
Ending was good on the boys, wasn't expecting it at all. I do like Billy Buthcher.

{Ed001's Note - and me, hard not to like him. Actually all of 'the boys' are likeable characters.}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2019 22:21:54
Stranger Things series 3 is officially out. Who's hyped?!

{Ed001's Note - I just watched the first episode, I am hyped! I had intended to go to sleep an hour ago but noticed it was out so watched one first....}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jul 2019 23:22:54
I would imagine quite a few peoples sleeping schedules may be turned upside down

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 09:24:34
Started watching it and really enjoying it, on the fourth episode on season two. The young lads are really good, Dustin just looked inside the dustbin lol.

{Ed001's Note - it is an excellent show mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jul 2019 19:57:37
Just finished watching the whole series 3. Loved it. Steve and Dustins bromance is the best thing on TV right now, it's hilarious.

{Ed001's Note - I am gutted it has finished and we have to wait for season 4 now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2019 02:58:55
Me too, The Expanse season 4 is coming in December, so that's something to look forward too. I just hope Stranger Things doesn't take another 2 year break between seasons.

{Ed001's Note - that's another show well worth watching. But December? That is so far away!}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2019 16:24:43
Well, I guess you'll have to keep yourself busy with that post credits scene in the final episode?

**SPOILER**

If you didn't see it, there is a scene at the end of the final episode, where a group of Russians are holding people captive. They also have a Demagorgon, which they feed prisoners to. They're going to grab someone from a cell when one of the Russians says "Not the American!"

Are they referring to a much loved character who may or may not be dead?

{Ed001's Note - it has to be doesn't it?}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jul 2019 17:48:21
The only other possibility is that they've some how managed to get Elevens original captor Dr. Martin Brenner, which she calls "Papa".
There are a few rumours circulating that he's still alive and aiding the Russians against his will.

{Ed001's Note - that would be very disappointing.}

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Sep 2019 08:02:32
Gotta be who we think it is surly, what a top show. Love it.
