I am really enjoying El Dragón. Spanish spoken and subbed, but still good.
20 minutes in and oh my god the acting is seriously wooden. Seems to be moving along at pace though so I'll persevere.
Still going here. Now on episode 6.
OK, now I am enjoying this - however I did get a shock when I decided to see how many episodes. 38. THIRTY fkING EIGHT!!!!!! I'll still persevere, since it's interesting/fun, but since Mrs Iroc has no interest it's not that easy to binge on frown

Really enjoyed that.

8/10 for me
I struggled enough to make out the dialog that I gave up on it.

Yes, looking forward to this one! Will be interesting to see how they made all these "olds" look younger with technology...

November 13 : Attack on Paris

A genuinely moving 3 part account of the terror attacks at the stade de France, Parisian bars and the Bataclan.

Interesting to see a proper in depth program that isn’t totally Americanised.

Far more emotional in its style than your typical panorama type program.

Well worth a watch!

Just finished Unbelivable. Absolutely gripping and compelling. Can’t remember the last time something hooked me so quickly and made me want to just keep going and going as soon as an episode finished.
Started this tonight and I'm hooked.
Absolutely brilliant acting. A true story. A must watch.

Agreed. And always a good sign spotting Breaking Bad actors.

I thought that was a great series too - unfortunately Series 2 got canned so I heard.

I hadn't looked to see how many there were but was surprised as my view count kept on going up with no end in sight. I think I am in the low 20s.

Also, Merritt Wever......brilliant in the first thing I saw her in - Godless (also on Netflix)

I might watch Spotless again. Shame the 2nd season never happened.

Just watched Game Changer with my maximum cynical head on.

Despite that bits of it were genuinely compelling.

Although I'm still sceptical about some of it. A 20% increase in bench press, for me that would be 140kg to 168kg, which just isn't possible or should I say that's atleast 6 months of hard training.

My interest was piqued enough to do some of my own research. This guy can articulate my concerns better than I could. He basically rips the whole documentary to shreds apart from the impact livestock farming has on the environment.

That's an excellent critique...I turned off game changers after about 20mins as I could see how biased and non evidence based it was. The fella who write the above linked article took it to the next level!

Apache Warrior.

Real life Apache helicopter crews.

Interesting story / mission.

About half way through, should be really interesting - but something about the cast and format / editing is really annoying.

ETA: Worth sticking with to see the outcome.

So it’s vegan propaganda? Well, I am shocked. Not.

Yes there was a bit of that knocking around in my head too.. and it seemed odd that they queued it up with phases like 'Apache pilots have a high intelligence level etc.. etc..'

Although on my drive home tonight in the dark a massive stone bounced off a passing truck and hit my windscreen like a bullet.. which made me swear and duck... instantly reminded me of last nights viewing boxedin
