Anyone watching the new season of Vikings?

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
I was really enjoying Bjorn and Halfdane adventures in the desert. I don't care about Kattegat anymore. Lagertha is still one of the hottest things on tv but i don't care about her story anymore. So the fact that everyone returned to kattegat for the showdown is a bit disappointing.

And i was so happy to see a portuguese actor on Vikings! And so disappointed to see him get eaten, literally, in the next episode :(

Luckily I have no idea which show he was referring to so I'm safe.

I mean, I think it's Mr Robert*, but I have no recollection of this happening in it.

*That's what it's called in the Fop House.

Yes! I am watching it and I...

Disagree somewhat. The adventure in the desert was pretty pointless I thought and didn't really do anything to advance the story. It looked pretty though. I'd rather see more about Floki and his friends in Iceland.

The desert parts ended up being pointless, but in the beginning it was the thing that I was most eager to see. I was hoping they would end up in Constantinople. Besides they should haven't killed portuguese guy. And that Kassia woman was marvellously cast. Her face is striking and exquisite, almost like something from a byzantine mosaic

But i agree the parts in Iceland are great. I was expecting floki to die there in "Asgard" but obviously i don't know norse history that well, because apparently some guy named Floki discovered Iceland

The newest episode of Riverdale is amazing. As is Cheryl.

We started the second series last week. Cheryl is almost making me dislike the show. She’s too flat a caricature.

I think we’ve got to about episode four-ish (just watched the one with the Red Circles) and I don’t think we’re going to carry on with it. It’s really dragging its feet compared to the first series, the characters are somehow completely one dimensional and yet still doing things that completely hard with the characters as established, and nothing much is happening. The most exciting thing was me thinking ‘oh yeah, that’s Luke Perry’ only in episode four. I knew from last season, but he looks so different now that I re-forgot.

Watched the first episode of The Marvellous Mrs Maisel (Amazon Prime). It’s brilliant and allegedly heavily influenced by the early life of Joan Rivers.

Couple of recent Netflix documentary series watches from me.

'ROTTEN' which focuses on one food per episode, and the problems with production/forgery/sourcing etc, so there's a chicken episode and a peanut allergy episode and a honey/bees episode and so on. TBH it's a bit uneven and a couple of the episodes are a bit too 'human interest' but overall it's a solid and interesting documentary.

'DIRTY MONEY' focuses on shitheels in the world of corporate culture/finance/banking/etc, again one per episode. So there's a VW Emissions episode, a payday loan episode, a pharmaceutical gouging episode and so on. This is really good and I'd very much recommend it. The VW Emissions chicanery is gob-smacking. Clearly corporate corruption right the way to the top.

I like documentaries more than pretend things these days I think.

Yes, but power through to season 2. We didn’t the first time and we’re now watching it again and it’s the most beautiful and funny show.

I'd just skip season one altogether. Didn't feel I missed anything important in terms of character development by starting in S2.

It’s glorious, but god those first few episodes are tedious. I’m so glad we decided to try it again, though. It’s one of my two favourite recent comedies along with a Brooklyn 99.

It's six episodes which is about two hours of television. It's not amazing but sets up the show. It's not a huge investment of time to get to the really good stuff.

I don't know why people make such a big deal out of it. :shrug:

Because I watched the first two and they were utter dogshit? You were ready to give up on Altered Carbon without even watching the first ten minutes.

Just finished season 4 of Transparent. It's still a very well written and acted show, but it's already past its prime. Now with Jeffrey Tambor being fired i really doubt there's going to be another. And the Pfefferman's are really the most annoying self-centered people on TV.

Well, first 2 seasons are still excellent, and i highly recommend them.
