It's this Friday isn't it, not last?

Disappointing score - but going through the book I was amazed how much is sagged when Az/Crow aren't the focus - coupled with the actors in the show I can see tham being a real problem


It’s now a much more palatable 66, with a user score of 8.1. It’s one of my missus’ favourite books so we’ll be binging it when I get home from work tonight probably.

Chernobyl continues to be bloody amazing and not at all overplayed.

It's gritty realism at its gruesome best and anyone who isn't shocked by it has a heart of stone. I have no idea if they still watch films in school for learning purposes but this could be a good candidate as a historical drama done well that will shock kids into seeing history as not at all boring.

I really liked it all - but it suffers from same problem as the book (to which it's very very very faithful) of a flabby middle

City On A Hill S01E01, Sundays in the US.

In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm – and then it all changed in what was called the “Boston Miracle.” In this fictional account, Assistant District Attorney Decourcy Ward comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr. Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

The current season of Fear the Walking Dead has been really good so far, definitely seems to have surpassed the main show imo.

Had to have a childish smirk at the name of Daniel's cat though, Skidmark :lol:

The Loudest Voice S01E01, Sundays in the US.

This seven-part limited series based on a bestselling book is about Roger Ailes, the founder of Fox News. To understand the events that led to the rise of the modern Republican party, one must understand Ailes. Focusing primarily on the past decade in which Ailes arguably became the party’s de facto leader, the series also touches on defining events in Ailes’ life, including his experiences with world leaders that gave birth to his political career, and the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his Fox News reign to an end.

Whilst tv shows based on video games are all the rage at the moment (see ‘The Witcher’ and ‘Final Fantasy’), USA Network is taking a slightly different tack as they order a pilot for ‘Masters Of Doom’, telling the story behind the classic first-person shooter.

‘Masters Of Doom’ is the true story of two computer geniuses in an obscure corner of America who, along with a group of rebellious misfits, created one of the biggest franchise hits of the 90s, the video game DOOM. John Carmack and John Romero were best friends who became bitter rivals, as they created a video game empire and transformed pop culture forever.

Should it get picked up, the drama is envisaged as an anthology series, with each season focused on a different pivotal moment in gaming history. The first season is based on award-winning journalist and author David Kushner’s landmark nonfiction book of the same name.

‘Masters Of Doom’ will be written by WGA Award winner Tom Bissell, who will also serve as executive producer. Bissell is writer on the ‘Gears of War’, ‘Battlefield’, and fantastic ‘Uncharted’ video game franchises. He has also authored nine books, including ‘Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter’ and co-author of the New York Times bestseller ‘The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made’. His short fiction has also been anthologized in multiple editions of the ‘Best American Short Stories’ series.
