Watching a Viceland doco called King of the Road. It's a skateboarding road trip competition organised by Thrasher magazine where teams have to complete skateboarding challenges across America and complete other crazy stunt challenges as well. It's pretty entertaining for an ex-skateboarding old fart like me :P

Really enjoyed S12 of Red Dwarf... and considering I watched it back to back with S11, it's been one hell of a nice binge.

Now for the wait for Season 13 which the cast and producers are saying will most likely happen.

My Blu-ray copy of Red Dwarf S12 is sitting on my shelf, but I haven't watched it yet because I always do it the first time with my father and sister, just like back in the 90s.

I've been so tempted to pop it in the PS4 though...

I finished watching this, it was a lot of fun. It's like they make Skate 3 into a TV show. Season 2 has an aussie dude called Jackson Pilz who absolutely shreds

The websites covering Dolores O'Riordan's funeral must be getting a bit of traffic. Takes so long to load.

Finished Orphan Black. Had some ups and downs over its 5 seasons, but overall a quality show and I'm a little sad it's over.

Watched the documentary The Farthest, about the Voyager missions that NASA and the JPL carried out.

Awesome stuff, lots of people who worked directly on the project are interviewed and there's tonnes of great file footage and photos from the time.

Star Trek Discovery is finishing a lot better than I expected. I thought it had pretty much gone off the rails at one stage but it's really coming home strong.

Still watching Lethal Weapon too. I don't know if the writers are doing it on purpose or not, but Riggs' relationship with stability has been really interesting to watch. A couple times over the last 2 seasons you think he's "fixed" (wrapped up nice and neat like TV likes to do), but then he hits another hurdle and slides back again. The overall effect makes it seem like it's a real battle for him and something that he keeps needing to work at.
But yeah, still not sure if it's intentional or if the writers just figure it's time to hype up that aspect of his character every now and then just to remind everyone he's "crazy".

Did it get cancelled? S2 isn't as good but I still thought it was entertaining.

Yeah - I started the show thinking "wow this is great" so I searched it up etc only to find it got cancelled. I don't like starting cancelled shows lol - building that attachment only to be disappointed.

Well hrmm I hear mixed stuff about season 2 - some say its great some say its shit - guess I will find out soon enough :(

Same, that's why I never got around to watching season 3 of Hannibal.

Season 3 of Hannibal was pretty damn good. 2nd half of the season was the Red Dragon storyline.

Ages ago I watched the first few episodes of Black Mirror... wasn't too impressed. Went back after a friends insistence to watch season 4 and was absolutely blown away. What a ride!!!


And yes, LOVING Altered Carbon... big fan of the novel and the main character, and the absolutely sumptuous setting and attention to detail in the TV show (plus my old mate Detective Holder) makes for scintillating viewing.

Star Trek ended up finishing a bit.. Harry Pottery;
To defeat the bad guy all you need is love. Blah.
Counterpart is a pretty decent watch. Given that Agents of Shield is on a break it's probably my number one current show.

It's modern day, but very heavily influenced by cold war spy/espionage stuff;

Finished watching Altered Carbon and it was.... okay. Didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I can't put my finger on what I didn't like about it.

Trying to work out what to watch next, might give Black Mirror a go... I'm generally not as into shows without an overall story arc but I've heard so many good things about it. I might also catch up with the new Star Trek.

Also watching Homeland, liking the look of the new season. I loved last season and this appears to continue the same storyline on.
