Y eah Discovery I read after my post about Fuller's leaving but I believe the first season showrunner left mis deason 2 and that's when it went downhill in my book.

Interesting to read other examples and that Prime is particularly guilty of it, lucky I don't have Prime then (i do a free trial each xmas, its just run out, watched Carnival Row, Upload and Night Manager, Upload was superb I thought).

This also makes me reflect that Lucifer became crap after its switchover to Amazon, having just watched its latest season so guessing writrers & showrunners changed behind the scenes

Don't shows that run a long time generally start to see decline in quality?

Just watched this - really enjoyed it. Kept me guessing throughout. Not too over the top and the robots were awesome. I suspect Boston Dynamics were involved here somewhere.

Behind Enemy Lines, Terminator, Black Hawk Down, District 9 all had echoes in this.

"Brutal Robot Firefight" should have been on the poster.

Really was bored from the start and fell asleep at the hour mark and there was about 20 minutes left when I woke and I just switched it off. There seemed to be nothing likable about this film, am I being too harsh?

Each to their own I guess I was in the mood for something like this so it was a thumbs up from me.

Finished watching The End of the *********** World season 2. I don't think it's as good as the first season but it was still a great watch.

Pretend it's a City, Fran Lebowitz and Martin Scorsese in a limited series in which she talks about New York City, and other things but mostly New York, is worth a look if that sort of thing appeals to you.

I checked out One Night In Miami on Prime Sunday night. A bit slow to get going but once it does I found it very compelling and entertaining. Quite heavy handed on politics, morality and racism so if that isn't you cup of tea best stay away. Majority of the film is set in one location so is very dialogue driven.

Also checked out Songbird on Amazon. Micheal Bays Covid movie. Unlike Outside the Wire I managed to watch the whole thing, if you have seen a Bay move you know what to expect, shallow characters, flashy MTV style editing. It wasn't bad, but that doesn't mean it was good, I think being able to slightly relate to the characters kept me watching as did the premise which plays out your worst nightmare of our current situation.

I will say from a production point of view I thought it was very clever and looks like it's been filmed with social distancing protocols showing you can do some clever stuff.

I don't see Songbird on Netflix. Was it an overseas library?
