Series three of El Chapo in 4k UHD.
This is a very well made series, in Spanish of course with English subtitles and wow, how it opened my eyes about what's been happening in Mexico over the years.

i missed the first ten minutes but it certainly follows the themes and meta of the last few seasons. She was quite good. I'll watch next week.

Currently watching Ep5 of The Discovery of Witches. It's very much not for teens. A touch slow maybe.The sets/locations are great. Acting is good.

Condor, on Universal. S1 Ep1. If they haven't used up all their good ideas in the first three episodes it could be good.

Tin Star is on Council TV (Channel 4) on Sunday nights (started last week)

I liked the first ep and it seems pretty good.

You watched it on premium Glam, is it worth keeping up with?

Tin Star is fierce and unforgiving. Zero humour and it's hard to know who to root for, but it is quality drama.

Just watching the last of Joan Hickson's Miss Marple. She was by far the best of all the Miss Marples.

Didn't enjoy last Sunday's Dr Who. There was just so much wrong with it in historical terms. James would never, ever, ever be alone, without servants and guards, ect. He'd never be able to escape them. And he'd never leave the court unattended in case he found himself not in power when he returned.

The latest season of House of Cards (without Spacey) was weird and it felt like all the actors were on drugs.
It really was quite dire and the writers simply could nit let go of the Frank Underwood spectre. He was everywhere, when they should have moved on.

The full rewrite probably mucked it up.
The same thing happened with the second season of Goliath....which got chopped up and reworked as well.

I watched Frozen again. I think it has all the class of the early Disney cartoons. Some dark parts to it and bits that weren't explained, but it's Disney, not Dickens.

Coming late next year based on the Supergirl/Flash/Arrow franchise: Crisis on Infinite Earths. Probably rubbish but who knows.

I watched the Christmas ed. of Porridge. Such a shame the entire lead cast has passed on. Classic TV.

Line of Duty is a great police drama, but for some odd reason Netflix is only showing seasons 3 and 4, in our area anyway.
Gripping stuff, especially The Caddy, who really is a cad.

Monsters Inc. because it was on the telly. Still one of the best animated films.

Yes it is, though it's remarkable how much the CGI has improved by the time Monsters University came out. I thought that one silly and didn't finish it.

Watched The Avengers: Infinity Wars tonight. How complex. I'd no idea what was happening and it's really only part one of a longer story. I'll have to watch it again. The actors are really ageing since the first Iron Man came out.

Complex?
As many superheroes as they could squeeze in come together to stop Thanos getting his power-ups, is pretty much what it boils down to.
There's not much complexity beyond that.
(There's probably a directors cut in the offing with another half hour or more of scenes they couldn't fit in.)  :wink:

Watching the Royal Institute Christmas Lectures
Yup, I know it's for kids but I've always liked them and it's better than half the adult orientated shit that's on.

Something does confuse me though.  This episode is about DNA, common ancestors therefore evolution etc. Then why is the Royal Institute still royal? Aren't the royals defenders of the faith, the monarch the head of the CofE and god's representative?
Sometimes I over think shit.
