Loving 'Yellowstone'. What a great show, and Beth Dutton is the best TV character in a long time.

Currently working my way through season 3 of Legion. I'd totally forgotten about this show after season 2, only twigged today season 3 would of been released already.

3 episodes in and good to see the quality of the show hasn't diminished. Just as trippy and weird as the other seasons so far, feels like I'm on an acid trip half the time lol. We finally get to see a young Charles Xavier in this season, this is unlike any other Marvel show or film, makes Deadpool look mundane and middle of the road.

I loved the first series, but never followed it up. I just don't watch a lot of episodic TV, so I tend to forget about stuff.

Might try get back into it if I remember.

I watched If You Don't Know Me, a documentary about Teddy Pendergrass.

People in the UK can watch on the IPlayer.

.


I am a big fan of his music, but there's still a lot to enjoy even if you don't know his stuff.

He had a wild crazy life, full of women, drugs, murder, and accidents. There are lots of good interviews and archive footage, and obviously some live performances.

Worth a watch if you like music docs.

Season 2 was more up and done but ended on a high (and brave) note, s3 total shitshow. Must say Fargo s4 is also total trash right now also from Noah Hawley.

It seems a difficult story to keep going at the level of the first series.

All right The Queen's Gambit was class! Yeah a classic style tale, from orphanage to sports heights, girl power in a very male dominated world and whatnot, but with smart writing ahead of the viewer, very nice period details, fitting music and Anya Taylor-Joy bringing joy, sorry and energy to each scene with a solid cast, plus some surprises in a series about chess and much more, this turned out pretty good even if not in the Chernobyl class of unforgettable... which is no shame.

P. S. I'd VERY much like to check that box and mate with Ms. Taylor-Joy. She's wonderful.

I really enjoyed the 2nd series of Ghosts.









It's a bbc sitcom from the Horrible Histories team, where a young woman inherits a country house, and after an accident can see the ghosts that haunt it.


Its very light and family friendly, but it's really good fun.

People told me to watch this but you may know, I cannot stand 'clever girl' movies.

I didn't want it to end I enjoyed it so much. Even when she walks through a room with the camera following her, she gives me feelings I cannot explain, nor want to.

When she cried over the photo of her and the janitor in the last episode, I'm not ashamed to say, so did I

She's wonderful as a redhead, the blonde/brunette looks don't really do it for me. Those brown eyes and copper red hair combo she has is irresistible though.
