Ah good stuff. Everyone needs some VM Varga in their life.

Not the same kind of thing at all, but I discovered this morning that the Mr Bean TV series has been added to Amazon Prime, which means a few hours of excellent TV time with mini-Fop awaits.

BBC4 have picked up Ken Burns' Vietnam, starting Monday at 21:00. Other than his famous Civil War doc (that I find hasn't aged well), I really enjoyed his one on prohibition and probably ought to get round to seeing his one on the West.


Watched the first two episodes this evening. It's very well done and I've learnt loads about the conflict already. It's also very uncompromising in its use of footage and photographs. Highly recommended.

The TL;DW is:
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
blame the French.

PSA: The Good Place and Brooklyn 99 have started again.

Also, if you like fun and / or annoying Gaywood: Scorpion started its forth season earlier in the week.

I'll be honest, I couldn't remember what happened at the end of Unexploded Politician, so I had a quick look online. Yep, I think i was happy for it to finish there.

I will no doubt slurp up this new series with emptily greedy gusto, nonetheless.

The new season of Episodes started a few weeks back and I rattled a few episodes in a row after remembering just how fucking hilarious it is. I don't think it's particularly well known but even the characters that appear briefly are brilliant and I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for something pretty fucked up to laugh at. Sample plot-line: Matt LeBlanc gets fired from his presenter job on a ridiculous Big Brother-esque gameshow after forgetting there's a 24 hour feed that transmits to the entire world his wanking for one of the female contestants.

I enjoyed the show, but I really massively hated the last episode of the first series, so I might not watch the second series as I have so many other things on my list.

Also, I watched that Big Bang Theory spin-off “Young Sheldon”.

It’s a strange beast: no studio audience, no laughter track, a muted performance from the actors, a very good performance by the mother, it’s not even a straight comedy and it already has some underlying tensions bubbling away even if you know just a brief backstory of the character.

I’m strangely drawn to it but it’s only episode 1 so it might get shitter. Here’s hoping it plays it straight throughout however manny episodes they’re doing (I can’t imagine many) and avoids the laughs because I think that’d be rather interesting.

Unfortunately I have a very limited supply of half-decent stuff that my wife's not interested in watching, which is suitable commuter fodder. Anything she wants to watch, we have to watch at home. Unexploded Politician is one such program.

Fortunately for me, two others are Orphan Black* and the Expanse. So i'm currently on the final series of the former and looking forward to the second series of the latter.

*Speaking of which, the first couple of episodes of series 5 are a fucking mess.

Ooh excellent I didn't realise it was back on. Cheers.

I absolutely love it - the fight scene in season 1 made me cry with laughter so hard I couldn't breathe.

For anyone who find themselves regularly not knowing when new seasons start I can highly recommend Episode Calendar. Tell it what shows you're interested in and it'll create a personal calendar for you showing whenever something you like airs. For US stuff it's the US air dates it gives mind so if it's not simulcast or you're not pirating your TV it might not work so well admittedly but for me it's excellent and means I don't miss anything I'm into. I've attached a screenshot of my current calendar view just as an example of what you see.

If you are pirating stuff
a) You should be ashamed. You wouldn't download a car*
b) Sonarr has a calendar built in

* In a fucking heartbeat

Started watching 'The Expanse'.

I like it. Enjoy that is taking its time and setting up the different strands of the story, though four episodes in the one with the exploding spaceships and Martian cruisers and all that is by far the best part.

They're not keen on getting you massively invested in people though, or learning their names. I mean, I should make an effort but gun to my head I could only recall one actual character name. So instead the cast is:

Fedoracunt
Alexis Sanchez
Raj's parents
SpaceGrantWard
AldiChrisPine
Security woman
Saffer terrorist
Martian eye bloke
Etc.

Which one of those is Space Jon Snow?

The characters bed in a bit over time, also. Keep watching.

Enjoyed the the first two episodes of the new Star Trek. Interesting villains. Lots of fun. Some silly moments but on the whole good. Will definitely watch more.
