Yep, not too subtle a reference! :)

Great use of The Court Of The Crimson King also.

Quote from: pxr5 on January 09, 2021, 23:15:19 pmWe've just completed the second series of The Mandalorian. The first series was excellent, and this was even better. It's just Star Wars, but done in a way that takes all the best styles and ideas from the movies and improves upon them. Everything is spot on and you can tell that all those involved wanted to really capture the true essence of Star Wars. I just wish it were longer than 8 shortish episodes, but maybe that's partly what makes it so good. Easily 10/10.
is there a way I can watch this without subscribing to yet another TV channel?
The new songs are an abomination

Not sure but I think you can get it free for 6 months if you are with O2

It's the only way I know of for free.

Onward 

Pixar film (watched in 3D) with a premise that's braver and weightier than the average - a sort of "Frozen for boys" to put it crudely - and setting itself such a high bar of balancing this with the usual quick-witted gags and eye-popping visuals seems to prevent it reaching the remarkable heights of, for example, the Toy Story films.

Still, the central brotherly relationship, voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, is always engaging, and the potentially divisive ending I thought worked all the better for it being relatively understated and not quite as the Pixar playbook might have suggested.

Watching a few series on Netflix at the moment.

Back to Life - a BBC dark comedy drama with Daisy Haggard who also co-wrote it.  Really good and I'm surprised I missed it (never even heard of it when it was shown originally)

Community A sit-com set in a US further education college, pretty decent.  It has a very young looking John Oliver and not so young Chevy Chase.  Enjoying the first season

The Kominsky Method.  A vehicle for Michael Douglas - enjoying the drive so far!
When the truth offends we lie and lie until we can longer remember it is even there. But it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is repaid

Glad you're enjoying Counterpart :) The Serpent looks interesting, might give that a go. I've not heard of The Outsider, but just looked it up on imdb - looks my kind of show, thanks.

Lupin - On Netflix - only about 5 episodes in this first series but a decent watch - although dubbed from French so expect out of sync lip movement  :)

The Pembrokeshire Murders. ITV dramatization  of the re-opening of the case against John Cooper (played by Keith Allen). Very interesting subject matter and a great insight into the incredible work carried out by forensic scientists. 
The couple that were murdered by Cooper on the coastal footpath were from Witney. I was in the same class as their son Tim in secondary school (his parents were murdered about 10 years after we left school)
Last night there was a follow-up programme featuring the actual team that successfully linked Cooper to three horrendous crimes and put him behind bars for life. Good watch

Can't be doing with that, too distracting.
