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.

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.


2.) 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.}

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.

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


4.) 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"


5.) 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.}


6.) 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.}


7.) 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.

Ed001, have you watched The Expanse season 4 yet? I am just about to start watching the first episode!

hsf

{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.}


1.) 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.


2.) 04 Jan 2020 20:08:10
it is an excellent show. Really enjoying season 4 so far


3.) 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.}

BBC War of the Worlds

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

hsf

{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.}


1.) 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..


2.) 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.

Stranger Things series 3 is officially out. Who's hyped?!

hsf

{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....}


1.) 05 Jul 2019 23:22:54
I would imagine quite a few peoples sleeping schedules may be turned upside down


2.) 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.}


3.) 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.}


4.) 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!}


5.) 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?}


6.) 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.}


7.) 03 Sep 2019 08:02:32
Gotta be who we think it is surly, what a top show. Love it.

Anyone been watching the HBO miniseries Chernobyl?
I'm currently on episode 2 and it's very good so far. Mainly British actors and it's all in English, so there is no language barrier.
