Kinda want to watch at least one of whatever this is.

Do be aware it's pretty slow, but not in a bad way IMO, the time it takes to build the characters and the world all pays off in the end.

Oh yes really good soundtrack too, I forgot about that in my previous post.

I'm quite enjoying Lost in Space, I think it's a pretty good re-imagining of the original series, which I have fond memories of.

The new robot design is cool. And in a sign of my aging and possibly the changing times, I find the mum character to be far more... ahem... visually appealing than any of the other characters.

Anyway, if you want something good to watch on Netflix I'd really recommend giving DARK a try. It's GERMAN and features GERMAN BOOBS, along with attractive Teutonic GERMAN women who appear to be very well constructed, like a 1980s Mercedes.

It's kind of like a cross between Stranger Things and Twin Peaks (shit description I know), it's ostensibly a sci-fi type affair but there are lots of dark human relationships and history and secrets, there's a whole time travel thing going on as well.

I binged on Season 1 and will start on Season 2 shortly. It's got an English dub but I watched it in GERMAN with English subtitles, it's quite talky in places so there are lots of subs.

Good watch, I really enjoyed Season 1.


Wasn't sure about the first couple of episodes but I'm really getting into this. Proper mind fucky stuff.

It's good innit? I haven't started on Season 2 yet but it's taking priority over Stranger Things Season 3.

Also, solid 1 on the Craster scale.

Did I say I'd watched Stranger Things? Well, I have. I thought it was a bit meh, to be fair.

I wasn't really that interested, I didn't like the monster and I didn't like the way they split the party.

And what the fuck was going on with the singing?!

Other criticism: I think this one was a bit too try-hard with the whole 80s thing. Maybe that was always the case - GLOW is set in the 80s and it's just set in the 80s, whereas Stranger Things likes to strut around waving its big old 80s dick whether you want them to or not. GLOW certainly don't rub Coke cans into your face.

Oh, and they got the Planck constant wrong.

The song was definitely too try-hard.

I liked it more than 2 but much less than 1. Still decent TV, mind, and very watchable.

The danger wasn't there like in the previous seasons. It was bordering on Austin Powers when they were running about inside the Russians secret base.

The opening scene of S2 is up there with the Preacher/Dexy's series opener.

Absolutely batshit brilliant.

I'm only one ep in, but a mate who's clocked all of S2 says it really dials up the craziness this time around.

We didn't get on at all with happy season 2, gave up after 2 episodes I think. Probably give it another go at some point, we're running out of stuff.

When They See Us is fucking good, and fucking harrowing.

I thought I'd done a little mini review of When They See Us on here but maybe it was just for the Rimmers, but anyway, yeah, it's a gruelling but superb watch.

Loved the way they skewered Trump as well, for the awful shitcan racist he's always been.

There is a new sci-fi series released today, with Katee Sackhoff in the lead role.

Let me know how it finishes will you? I got really pissed off with the old plot mechanic where all the jeopardy relies on the cast being really fucking stupid and blind to the nefarious characters actions. I stopped at ep7 I think. How did they resolve the storyline with the robot?

Boo. Those who haven't checked out S2 yet should still check it out. The fight in the old people's home in Blitzkrieg is something else.

I really should see if I can dig up the original serieses, they were amazing. There were a lot of off-beat kids shows around that time. I have fond memories of 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete'

Yes, and it got a lot worse with stupid decisions being made (and improbable rescues! - no one from the Robinson family gon' die).

Let me see... I can't remember which episode was which really so I'll summarise in a brief and slightly moronic way.

The crashed Jupiters
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
All got back into space to meet up with the mothership, powered by some alien cave poo poo that they turned into fuel in a few hours


The robot
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Came back under Dr Smith's control and was kinda menacing. It put the beat down on the Robinsons and then at the last minute before delivering a killer blow it remembered it was friends with Will and just chilled. Then it fought with another robot that appeared OUT OF NOWHERE and they both got sucked into space. I suspect he will somehow return


The Robinson family
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
had a few near misses in orbit. Dad floated away for a bit, then he got saved just before he ran out of air, and then he saved Will who had also managed to float away a little bit too.

In the middle of all this, in a series of Lost style flashbacks, it is revealed that the mothership had some SEKRIT alien technology on it and that's probably why the robot came in and trashed it in the very first place.

Then, wrapping up, just as the Jupiter 2 was about to meet up with the mothership AT THE LAST SECOND JUST BEFORE THE MOTHERSHIP WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE ORBIT, the magic space drive from the robot's crashed ship (snuck aboard the Jupiter 2 by Dr Smith), came to life and warped the Jupiter 2 and the classic-series characters (so the family + Don and Dr Smith) to some far far away place where now they are truly in some shit (not really, they'll survive).


I'll probably watch the next series though, just to see what other scrapes they get into through their own fuckwittery and miraculously escape from.

I'm quite enjoying Lost in Space, I think it's a pretty good re-imagining of the original series, which I have fond memories of.

The new robot design is cool. And in a sign of my aging and possibly the changing times, I find the mum character to be far more... ahem... visually appealing than any of the other characters.

Let me know how it finishes will you? I got really pissed off with the old plot mechanic where all the jeopardy relies on the cast being really fucking stupid and blind to the nefarious characters actions. I stopped at ep7 I think. How did they resolve the storyline with the robot?


Yes, and it got a lot worse with stupid decisions being made (and improbable rescues! - no one from the Robinson family gon' die).

Let me see... I can't remember which episode was which really so I'll summarise in a brief and slightly moronic way.

The crashed Jupiters
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
All got back into space to meet up with the mothership, powered by some alien cave poo poo that they turned into fuel in a few hours


The robot
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Came back under Dr Smith's control and was kinda menacing. It put the beat down on the Robinsons and then at the last minute before delivering a killer blow it remembered it was friends with Will and just chilled. Then it fought with another robot that appeared OUT OF NOWHERE and they both got sucked into space. I suspect he will somehow return


The Robinson family

had a few near misses in orbit. Dad floated away for a bit, then he got saved just before he ran out of air, and then he saved Will who had also managed to float away a little bit too.

In the middle of all this, in a series of Lost style flashbacks, it is revealed that the mothership had some SEKRIT alien technology on it and that's probably why the robot came in and trashed it in the very first place.

Then, wrapping up, just as the Jupiter 2 was about to meet up with the mothership AT THE LAST SECOND JUST BEFORE THE MOTHERSHIP WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE ORBIT, the magic space drive from the robot's crashed ship (snuck aboard the Jupiter 2 by Dr Smith), came to life and warped the Jupiter 2 and the classic-series characters (so the family + Don and Dr Smith) to some far far away place where now they are truly in some shit (not really, they'll survive).


I'll probably watch the next series though, just to see what other scrapes they get into through their own fuckwittery and miraculously escape from.

Thanks for that. As I said, I was mainly interested in the robot. Dr Smith as a baddie wouldn’t have survived the edit of a Scooby Doo episode
