Thanks for the heads-up - dinos are currently in vogue with my nephews.

No parental complaints here so far, with an age-recommendation of 9-10yo.

I've got through 4 episodes of Ratched up to now and it's sort of entertaining in an American Horror Story Lite kind of way.

Didn't expect it to have the Jonathan Creek theme tune though.

Anyone watch The OA ? (Difficult to search for on here).

The premise sounds interesting, but difficult to gauge if it's been dumbed down, or if the cancelling after S2 would be too frustrating!

It’s a fantastic show but the cancellation was extremely frustrating as it had a stunning cliffhanger which left you hanging, with no explanation what the f@#k was going on!

Its really, really good and well worth the watch even with the cancellation. Not a hint of dumbing down, it seems a very clear vision of what the writers intended.

I never did get round to the second season, I did enjoy the first I think the second just got buried in the avalanche of content that started to come out around then.

Quite enjoying Teenage Bounty hunters, sounds a bit premise but the 3 main cast make it work as they are good in their roles

I'm enjoying Ratched - though reviews I've seen don't seem to be good. It's totally crazy and looks fantastic. Wonderful cast too.

I started to watch Ratched, but if they're just going to plunder classic old films for supporting characters to tart up, I think I'll wait for the one about the bus driver from Speed.

I was the same - I took ages to watch the second series - it definitely came out at the same time as a shed load of other stuff.

I thought the trailer looks good and Paulson is always great, but I'd also seen quite a few things saying it goes downhill after a couple of episodes. I'll definitely give it a go.

A new Pegg/Frost created series Truth Seekers is coming to Amazon Prime (Oct 30th).

Any fellow space nerds out there should check out the JJ Abrams produced 4-part docuseries Challenger: The Final Flight about the 1986 Space Shuttle disaster.

Featuring interviews with pretty much every surviving person involved, plus the families of the lost astronauts, it's quite harrowing at times, but vey well put together.

Queen & Slim is on Prime.

One of the best 2020 films I've seen this year.

I enjoyed the new Enola Holmes film! Pleasant is how my other half described it.

Ditto. Thought it was fun. Millie Bobby Brown was very good, Henry Cavill makes a decent Sherlock & I liked the 'breaking the 4th wall' stuff.

It's a little long & the mother plot didn't really get a satisfying conclusion IMHO, but that's what sequels are for. Hope it gets one.

I watched Enola Holmes with my wife on Sunday night. Found it a bit disappointing, less fun than the trailer made out and outside of MBB all the other actors seemed to be dialling it in. Cavill just seemed like a less grumpy Geralt. The feminist message seemed a bit conflicted as well. Nothing about it felt particularly new or unexpected. By no means terrible but quite underwhelming.
