Call My Agent

French with subtitles so not everyone's cup of tea, but it is very good.

We've started this. It's ... OK.

Plot lifted from 'Ugly Betty', but without the same quality of writing.

Just started watching The Crew.

Imagine the bad cheesy 90s sitcom humour, zany characters and canned laughter of Friends, applied to a 2021 Nascar team.

Not sure yet whether I like it or not coffee
I lasted about 10 mins.

Remember how Taxi worked? Well this one just doesn't.

When I saw the trailer I assumed it was a spoof, but it turns out that junk was what they were actually serious in trying to make.

Decades past its sell by date and very very stinky.

Watched Mango Dreams tonight, a really lovely film. Great way to spend 90 mins, highly recommended.
Thanks for the recommendation Tim O, we really enjoyed Mango Dreams. A wonderful insight into some aspects of Indian life not normally seen.

I can’t find the Snowpiercer thread because I wanted to check.

It is 1034 cars long?

Don't forget, it did change twice from 1000 to 994 to 1034.....

I'm just waiting until Sean Bean's character inevitably gets killed hehe

Careful.

It all kicked off last time someone insinuated that SB dies a lot. hehe

I really quite enjoy snowpiercer! I was skeptical for the first few episodes of S1 but it has generally stayed pretty good!

Jury still out on the Korean “the myth” series - it’s a bit childish

Tribes of Europa was far better than I expected

The Trial of the Chicago 7
Decided to give this a go based on the positive reviews on this thread and I was not disappointed, well worth a watch even if you haven't seen the previous 6 films smile
Well your post made me laugh smile

Agree - it's well worth a watch - Sacha seems to get better and better

they are adding in Big Alice count to the number this season!

regardless - its actually quite good so far, and Bean, being Bean, is ok, they are still keeping the other characters strong too.

I'm guessing Gardner wanted to step back this season and be on the "polar station" for a while.

Latest episode was great, good to change the pace a little and get off the train for the first time. Some interesting revelations too!

Could be a few more seasons if ratings are good, so don't hold your breath!

They can paraphrase the famous Sean Bean Goldeneye line as the final conversation biggrin

"For Democracy Layton?"
"No, for me"

To whoever mentioned Ash vs Evil Dead - thank you.

Not sure how I missed this previously but it’s brilliant. Very funny and ridiculously gory. Just started s2.

It's so gloriously excessive. So. Much. Blood

You'll know within the first 10 mins of Season II that you're still in safe hands biggrin

Plus there's an exchange when he meets his dad that still makes me laugh when I think about it laugh

NSFW Trailer for those who don't know it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Yq3jeOmxSk
