Is that the one where the main airlock on the floor opens into open space and the air inside isn't immediately purged?

Malcolm in the Middle (IPTV)

do not confuse this with The Middle..which was shit.
Malcolm in the Middle is one of the funniest sitcoms ever made.  :cheesy:

That is all.
My favourite moment, perhaps of any US sitcom, is the middle (well, third) brother being flummoxed when trying to come up with an offensive nickname for the girl terrorising Dewey at school. She was called Regina Tucker.

Walter White was only ever Hal to me too.

Just started watching the Boys from Amazon Prime only watched 10 mins but looks good so far seems like a piss take on superheroes bit like that film damn forgotten the name of it! Nicolas Cage was in it though!

Did you stick through the series? I thought parts of it were excellent and Garth Ennis was a great writer in 2000AD back in the day. The dark humour in it was right up my street, particularly the dolphin rescue and the baby laboratory.

I did watched it all and thoroughly enjoyed it and it certainly left it open for a second series to!

Finally got round to watching Fantastic Beast: Grindlewald.
It was odd, a lot of mumbled dialogue, confusing plot in places but mixed with some superb CGI. It's clearly waiting for Ep3.

Ep1 of Carnival Row on Prime was quite good, though it was filmed almost entirely in the dark so nobody could see what was happening and the CGI would cost less.

Carnival Row, Prime. Still good, sort of but the background is always filmed in almost pitch dark or by oil lamp, and I've no idea about the characters. Who are they and why are they in the city, and what are the issues? A few hints are given but not enough.

Their (fairy?) continent has been invaded for resources and they're the refugees.

I finally got round to having a go at Fleabag. I enjoyed Ep1. It was smart and funny. Then in Ep2 it turned out she was everything I don't like in people. A taker. I'd prefer her sister. I turned it off after ten minutes and that'll do for me.

To be fair, I am not sure you're supposed to like Fleabag especially with a name like that - there are, however, far worse characters than her and she doesn't really get away with everything.

There is another sitcom that just started on the BBC, Defending the Guilty. I was going to recommend it, although with the warning that the character played by the lady from the IT Crowd is, if the first three episodes are representative, an irredeemable taker - although as the characters are lawyers that was probably inevitable.

His Dark Materials was excellent yesterday. It instantly felt like a much better adaptation of the book than the film and I am confident it won't need to substitute in the "happy" ending. It was a little bit of a shame that they had to start with text explaining the concept of daemons however I doubt that it would have made much sense to anyone that hadn't read the books otherwise - slowly establishing how they worked in the books was such a pleasure.

The third book is going to be really difficult to make. It is just an incredible piece of writing with the scale of its settings, the sheer outlandishness of various ideas and so much emotional punch. The effort put in to this first episode suggests that they will try their very hardest to do a good job with it when the time comes anyway.

I might give it a go.
I'm not a huge fan of teen fiction, but The Golden Compass was a passable watch.


No I won't, I don't subscribe to BBC any more (thought it was on Netflix or Prime).

Monzon is a surprisingly good Argentine series about the famous world champion boxer who was arrested for the murder of his wife.
The investigation is fascinating, not least the interested parties, the twists and turns and the whole is interwoven with how he reached the very top in boxing from humble beginnings.
It's subtitled, but not sure about dubbed.

We don't take to dubbing here. Many Continental countries do, but not the UK. I've not seen that advertised.

I note Supergirl is fuller in the face in this series. She's grown up but the plot is poor, the action amateurish. Time I stopped watching.

Agreed. Dubbing is horrible and loses the entire essence of the series or film.
I'm watching it with English subtitles, even though I can understand most of what they say.
