Yeah Heels looks great. I'll try to get it watched.
I watched the pilot from AppleTV+'s Showtime plugin (they give 1 free episode) and I didn't care for for it, tucker. Does it get better? I guess it has to explain wrestling to viewers but that makes me cringe a bit. I dunno.

On the topic of AppleTV+, the only other shows I've checked out are Ted Lasso which was fine. ( 6/10 ( Jason Sedakis is difficult for me to like ) ) and Mythic Quest which I enjoyed. ( 7/10 ).

Anything I'm missing from AppleTV+? I think I'm canceling that subscription.


The Morning Show despite its flaws is great.

They have just released a show called Acapulco which is stupid but okay viewing. There is not much on there though.

I really loved Heels, and yeah, I'd say it gets better. It's certainly not without its flaws but I can see beyond them mostly.

I just started watching The Morning Show with my missus. Went in with zero expectations and am actually really enjoying it.

And AppleTV+ , or whatever it's called, certainly seems a bit rubbish compared to Netflix or even Amazon Prime.

It is a bit too on the nose with the #MeToo narrative but I really liked it. Reese Witherspoon is a right naughty little cunt, isn't she? She always delivers. I suspect that opinion means I'm old and white but gotta give her props.

Only Murders in the Building

Starring: Steve Martin, Martin Short & Selena Gomez

I'm a big Steve Martin fan so I ended up paying for Disney+ so I could watch this! Really good show with humor/dark comedy/plot twists etc.... I would highly recommended it. Selena Gomez actually does a pretty good job of bumping off of these comedy greats so I didn't even find her out of place.

8.8/10

*The show is still actually on-going they release a new ep every Tuesday --- so I am waiting for the conclusion of series one*

Well, I didn't know that last night it was finale of series one and it was pretty darn good! Set up next season very well.

Steve Martin and Martin Short are hilarious together.

I'm in the back half of season 2 after you gentlemen talking about it. lol just realizing now after S02E06 I will have to wait to watch more as they are releasing episodes weekly and S02 isn't finished. It is fine. I think Jennifer Aniston is miscast as Alex. It is a heavy role exuding a lot of anger and I don't think she pulls it off. Reese does well and I always enjoy Mark Duplass. ( 6 / 10 )

At the minute I'm watching

Invasion - Very slow alien invasion series. When the action happens its class, but its happened twice in 5 episodes :D
American Horror Story - Didn't realize this had started and finished so catching up. Quite enjoying it so far, its a double feature this season Vampires/Aliens
Squid Game - Enjoying this alot more than I thought i would. Everyone I know has given up with it, the said the dubbing is shit.. I was like are you fucking joking? Watch it in Korean with subtitles you muppets...... Fucking dubbed

Currently watching Son Of A Critch - it comes on CBC here in Canada (I think it will be eventually distributed elsewhere).

Malcom Mcdowell plays the pop on the show and he's hilarious.

My only gripe about the show is that it feels a little too much like Young Sheldon but I can't stop watching it because it was filmed here.

7.5/10

First 3 episodes of Slow Horses.

Based on the brilliant books by Mick Herron.

Premise is a small, largely forgotten outpost of MI5 where the useless fuck ups get shipped to when they can't be sacked.

Gary Oldman plays the head of that department and completely nails the character.

I won't say much more as it would spoil it.

But it's been excellent so far.
