I wonder what time period it's set in. Things look quite modern but that would make Ozymandias super old.

Also I wonder if Doc Manhattan is going to be around.

It is a modern setting, yes. A quick search says Ozymandias was canonically born in 1939, whereas Jeremy Irons was born in 1948 -- so not that far apart. They'll likely just fudge the timeline a bit and make the events of the original story take place a bit later than they originally did (which was the early 80s IIRC.)

Also, this is fun:

Good question.

I have a weakness for wacky comics crossovers and one-shots. Judge Dredd vs Batman? Batman vs Dracula and Batman becomes a vampire? Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe? Transformers x Doctor Who? Fire that shit into my faceholes.

I've just watched the first episode of 'What we do in the shadows'

It's a mock documentry that follows 4 vampires as they try to take over the new world. It stars Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou and Mark Proksch and it's very, very good!

Is it a TV version of the film? There's meant to be a version coming out focussed on "Murray's" band of werewolves.

This week's episode is outstanding and has the most ridiculous list of guest stars.

Yup. Nailed the ending.

So did Veep. The entire season, and particularly the double-length final episode, was fucking cracking. I regularly had to make a conscious effort to suppress my laughter because if I started I'd miss the next two jokes.

Its that time again! We're rewatching the West Wing from the beginning - currently on "Lord John Marbury".

Bradley Whitford and Rob Lowe are just the best. And Allison Janney. And Dule Hill. And, well, basically everyone. Well, except Moira Kelly. The Mandy character is awful.

Weirdly, we started watching West Wing again last night. The end of the first episode is just brilliant. Everything from "She means Jewish" onwards is gripping and Bartlett's first scene is just perfect.

It's a cracking first episode. Bloody bold too, opening with what was essentially an attack on the religious right.

"In the Shadow of Two Gunmen" parts one and two are my favourite episodes.

ARRRRRGH I'm right up to date with BARRY SEASON 2 and now I have to wait a fucking week for the final episode.

I literally exclaimed 'NO FUCKING WAY!' when the credits rolled, because I totally want to see what happens next. It does proper drama really well, as well as being amazeballs funny.

"No you idiot I'M Joey Lucas". The one with hungover Josh in Sam's wet weather gear is ace, other than the hamfisted and sledgehammer messaging on the death penalty.

Finished watching the first season of Counterpart the other day. Despite an intriguing concept* it was really slow to get going, but it totally grabbed us for the last few episodes and made the investment more than worthwhile. Looking forward to the second season.

*Some 'incident' in the past caused a timeline split and there are two version of the world running in parallel. The general populace doesn't know about this but diplomatic machinery has grown up around the single crossing over point and the relationship between the two has become a very Cold War-era type of setup. JK Simmons plays a dual role: a hard-nosed spy version of himself investigating incursions from his world into the other and a much softer desk jockey version. 'Soft' Howard doesn't know shit about the real purpose of his entire organisation but he gets pulled into the conspiracy due to the involvement of his Other. Shenanigans ensue.
