I saw the first part of MGM: When The Lion Roars last night, the best doc about a Hollywood studio by a country mile (I found the DVD set when I was looking for something else), I'll watch parts 2 & 3 this week.

I'm just starting season 1 of Lost in Space.

I watched a British show called RIVER. (6 episodes.) Stellan Skarsgard plays a Swedish detective in London. I liked it.

Just finished watching the Grand Sumo November tournament from Fukuoka. Another win for Yokozuna Terunofuji, but he endured some tough bouts on his way to a spotless 15-0 win.

Wakatakakage’s brother, Wakamotoharu, will be joining him in the top flight in January’s tournament after doing well in Juryo, so there’ll be two sets of brothers in Makuuchi, joining Tobizaru and Hidenoumi.

I've watched the first three episodes of MIDNIGHT MASS on Netflix, and so far it's the best thing I've seen in years. For once the characters are all believable, the acting outstanding, and the quality of the writing just amazing. It seems to hit the nail on the head multiple times when it comes to portraying what makes (some) people tick.

My only fear is that it might turn in the direction which a "normal" series might turn. If it does, I'll be severely disappointed, but nothing can erase the memory of those first three episodes. Well, except my my bad memory.

Strangely enough, I let Netflix decide what to watch last night (using that little icon that says 'Play Something' based on your browse/watch history) and it started playing MIDNIGHT MASS.
We watched 2 episodes and found it engrossing.
It could be subtitled 'Now That's What I Call Stephen King' as there were so many call outs to his work and style.
From the tragic/recovering alcoholic protagonist, the sad/lonely ex-girlfriend, over-bearing mum, distant dad, spiteful/vindictive female religious zealot, town drunk, likeable sheriff (sharrif?) etc.
Also, parts of it reminded me of NEEDFUL THINGS, SALEM'S LOT and DOLORES CLAIBORNE.
But it's really well done.
Great atmosphere and remote, isolated feel of the town/island.
Interesting, believable (and well acted) characters.
Slow, but deliberate pace, allowing everything to grow and breathe naturally.
It looks very good...lived in.
And as Graham says, the quality of the writing is top notch.
Even the scoring, using a combination of male voiced hymn recitals and spooky string effects is really good too.
And you never forget being a Catholic, do you!!?

Just finished HELLBOUND, a six-part show from South Korea that's just started on Netflix. It was quite different from what I thought it was going to be like. Which was a good thing. And not as gory as expected and a bit more thought-provoking. I found it a lot more enjoyable than SQUID GAME.

Now moved on to a 2020 South Korean 10-part show, SWEET HOME. Residents are trapped in an apartment block by the transformation of the population into weird mutant monsters. Quite gory this one, a bit confusing but it's good fun.

COWBOY BEBOP, ELVES and season 3 of LOST IN SPACE are being watched too!
