Young Sheldon S01E01, Mondays in the US.

It’s 1989, and we meet nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper, the beloved character from THE BIG BANG THEORY, who has skipped four grades to start high school alongside his less-intellectual older brother. We get a peek into the formative years, with voiceover from Jim Parsons as adult Sheldon, of a scientific genius who is misunderstood by his family, classmates and neighbors. His mother preps him with what she thinks is the only tool he’ll need to survive at his new school: remind bullies that his dad’s the football coach and his brother plays on the team. His twin sister, who’s happy to stay in fourth grade, has a better sense of what awaits Sheldon than he does. Young Sheldon may understand Newtonian physics, but his blue-collar, church-going family only cares if that knowledge will help them win a football game.

SEAL Team S01E01, Wednesdays in the US.

SEAL Team is a new military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask of them. Jason Hayes is the respected, intense leader of the Tier One team whose home life has suffered as a result of his extensive warrior’s existence. His team includes his trusted confidant, Ray, the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand, and Sonny, an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies. Undergoing additional rigorous training in the hope of joining Hayes’ select unit is Clay Spenser, a young, multi-lingual second generation SEAL with insatiable drive and dedication. Vital to the team’s success are CIA analyst Mandy Ellis, who has sacrificed everything in her drive to root out evil and take down terrorists, and Davis, a no-nonsense, take-charge logistics officer and unofficial den mother responsible for outfitting the team with the necessary gear for each mission. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication even in the face of overwhelming odds.

Whether due to acts of terrorism, hate, or mental instability, mass shootings have become all too commonplace.

The results are powerful, eye-opening, and hopefully change-inducing.

As a 14-year-old boy living in Chicago in 1991, Alex was on top of the world, inventing cool things and celebrating the Bulls’ first championship, until his mom, Maggie, moved them to Los Angeles, the heart of Lakers country, and married a pilot, Ron. With his new stepbrother, Justin, Alex needed to reinvent himself in a new school, where he meets his dream girl, Nori Sterling. In 2017, 40-year-old Alex is an inventor/entrepreneur on top of the world until his wife leaves him and threatens to take their daughter, Abby, with her, sending him into a tailspin that requires the help of his best friend and business partner, Darryl, to get him back on track. In 2042 at 65, Alex is a highly successful businessman who, after suffering a minor heart attack, decides he’s ready to reinvent himself once again. Alex announces he’s retiring to his adult daughter, Abby, now the general manager of the Chicago Bulls, and he gets a surprise chance to reconnect with his childhood crush, Nori, who now goes by Eleanor. During these three pivotal periods, Alex always manages to find a way to move forward, handling key moments with determination, emotion and humor.

Finished S2 of The Sopranos the other day. This show is life right now, so damn good.

For anyone interested in a 1080p version, check out r/megalinks...

Edit: Just seen there's a 1080p x265 Breaking Bad on there too, been looking to update my SD version for a while!

I need to do a Sopranos rewatch at some point. Haven't watched it since it finished, but have them all on DVD.

Not so excited for Survivor this time around. Australian one has been so good that I'm not expecting the US one to match, but maybe with low expectations it will surprise me.

Yeah I feel the same tbh. Last season has soured me somewhat on the US version.

Regards the Aussie version, hated seeing the ones that were voted out this week go. There's only one person left who the audience can really root for (Jericho). The others are all either quite dislikeable, annoying or have played a rubbish game. I swear if Locky ends up winning this and they try and paint him like a hero I am going to be raging, he's been a jerk so many times.

Mildly disappointed in the Rick and Morty finale. I get that it's a status reset but it just felt muddled and inconsequential compared to the rest of the season which was a total knockout.

Fingers crossed season 4 isn't that far off.

So started Brojack Horseman - up to early season 2.

Once you get past "Oh the Agent's a kitty!" it's actually dark as strawberry float. Serious issues being highlight (although luckily it keeps the comedy element of 'dark comedy'...brutal in places though)

Others may disagree but I think late season 2 is both the best the show has ever been and the darkest it's ever been.

I have tried watching the Orville :| is about as good as it gets. Not even Adrianne Palicki can save it.

That episode with the acid trip was completely strawberry floated up but revealed a lot about the reasons why Bojack is the way he is, while still keeping the comedy.

Its brilliant.

The Ghosted pilot was 20 mins of exposition which doesn't bode well for a comedy.

And it's real ghosts, basically a 20 min comedy xfiles clone seems to be the setup.
