It’s good so far. Reminds me a bit of The Night Of, where a washed up deadbeat lawyer takes a difficult case and ends up rediscovering their mojo/ reason for living, ie. to help others.


I have downloaded it as part of in flight entertainment. I hope it is worth it!

Bit sad for a plane journey though. I tend to go for comedies in flight.

She is. Silly funny. :mrgreen:
I’ve taught young kids history and it reminds me of some of the funny things children say/interpret.
Eg. A lesson on Picts and the Roman Hadrian’s wall, a child drew a wall and some pigs on one side saying the Romans were trying to keep out the ‘pigs’.

If you like comedy in flight, try going to America on a hang glider. I be in the support team, well for as long as you remain in sight anyway. :leer:

Too much of that sort of humour is irritating but fun to dip into once a week.

Ok so who didn't tell me that Netflix have done Lost in Space?

Used to love it as a kid and I think it's been directed by Bill Mumy the original Will Robinson.

Anyways, anyone watched it? I just binged it over two nights, up to Episode 8 of 10 - gonna try do the last 2 tonight.

I like it and it's got a few twists from the original format, like - I'm not giving too much away by saying the insidious Dr Zachary Smith is a woman in this and she does a bloody good.

It is a little too character based if I'm being picky, lots of American series are though, that aside I'm enjoying it. :thumbsup:

I'm watching it with my wife and the older Little Miss Avon so can't binge watch it to my annoyance. We are up to episode 4 and we are all enjoying it.

Slick production, Dr Smith is creepy and I am beginning to warm to the robot (which is now slightly less creepy and more human than the good doctor...)

Ok forgiven, didn't see that. :oops:

Anyways, finished season 1 last night two back to back episodes. Excellent, resolved many things at the same time as leaving a suitable cliffhanger for a 2nd season, I do hope so.

Warning Will Robinson: You don't get over that overwhelming urge to strangle Dr. Smith, just saying. :ooer:

Nice one! She's a great villain and just when I have a twinge of sympathy for her I think "nah" as she does something treacherous.

We are up to episode 6 now and enjoying it.

The Durells is the absolute best thing on the tv atm.
It’s an adaptation of Gerald Durrell's "My Family and Other Animals" it features Keeley Hawes as Louisa Durrell, a widow who moves her family from England to the Greek island of Corfu in 1935. All the actors are brilliant but Keeley is a brilliantly understated star.
