Just finished watching DOUGLAS IS CANCELLED on ITVX.
4 part drama from Steven Moffat, which annoyed me at first (eps 1 & 2) but became engrossing and VERY UNCOMFORTABLE viewing in the last 2 eps.
3 is really hard to watch at times, in that sad 'this goes on' kind of way.
4 became contrived and a bit unbelievable but evoked that classic/ill-fated Prince Andrew TV interview.
An ageing/popular news presenter (Hugh Bonneville) makes a sexist(?) joke at a wedding and it goes viral.
His young female co-presenter (Karen Gillan) seemingly has the choice to help him out or end his career and legacy.
David Arnold did the score (comedy/jazzy) which went in one ear out the other for me.
Overall, thought provoking and worth a watch.

All anime right now.

Nadia Secret of Blue Water- It had a great start but the whole middle of the series is a slog to get through. I know the last third picks up momentum again. I’m on my third attempt finishing this series.

Super Dimension Fortress Macross - Known in the US as Robotech. The English version was highly edited for content and run time. I’m watching the original Japanese series unedited and in Japanese with English subtitles. The mecha animation for its time was and still is fabulous. I’ll take this any day over the awful CGI animation we get nowadays. Thanks to the evil owners of Robotech this will never come out in its original form in the west. Had to go the unmentionable way to watch this series.

Thunderbirds 2086- This is an English dubbed anime base on Gerry Anderson Thunderbirds. The English dub was made by ITC but I’m unclear if this is considered canon. I saw this on pay cable in the 80s. A fan “remastered” the episodes and put them up on YouTube. This is a nostalgia watch.

Keeping Up Appearances (KUA). Starting from the beginning, as I haven't watched the series in almost 15 years. Patricia Routledge is absolutely incredible. Roy Clarke is a brilliant and prolific writer, with his three biggest hits being KUA, Open All Hours, and Last of the Summer Wine.

Ha!
I sometimes call my eldest sister Mrs Bouquet, due to her sometime snobbery since she moved to live across the Mersey, from Liverpool (adopts Snobby voice) "To The Wirral*, Don't You Know"
It proper winds her up.

I have seen most of the Macross stuff - except the original series, Macross 7 and Delta. I really enjoyed the Macross Do You Remember love film, but will get around to watching the series someday. Macross Plus remains my all time fave - Macross Frontier is also excellent.

Nadia I have been meaning to watch for year - I picked up the ADV sets and just haven't gotten around to watching - maybe later this summer.




We just finished THE BEAR S3 - it was decent, but a little slow. If the next season is the last (I know they filmed S3/4 back to back). I'm good with that.

Regarding Nadia it was such a big hit in the beginning the studio ordered an extra 10 episodes which are mostly filler in the middle. It’s mostly Jean, Nadia, Marie and King deserted on an island. Nothing important happens and it turns Gillian’s Island silly.

I saw “Robotech” decades ago on television but never the Japanese version. Like Nadia it was such a big hit in Japan the studio increased the episode count which I believe drags out the ending. Do You Remember Love has some fantastic animation and a fabulous score. The character designs are more detailed too.

Loved Yellowstone. Superior drama. Superb cast. Costner is great, so is the actress playing his daughter, Kelly Reilly, and ranch foreman Cole Hauser.

My only minor gripe was way too much endless cowboy show footage and frequently long montages with terrible Country n western songs. They had to include a few I get that, but it was an indulgence and an unnecessary avalanche.

1923 - loving this too. Ford n Helen Mirren great.

Joe Pickett. Another good one, with perfect casting.

House of the dragon. So far I'd found this rather a 2nd division Game of thrones - don't like Matt Smith in anything, and series seemed like a limp afterthought - but s2 is finally hotting up.

Late to the party again but I'm absolutely adoring The Offer. Paramount series on making The godfather. Casting is absolutely immaculate.

Mathew goode - who I've seen as a bit bland in other things - absolutely steals the show as Robert Evans. But - in an amusing parallel with the godfather film - there's not one weak cast member, right down to the minor players.

I'm blitzing thru it.

Hey Bill, I really enjoyed Joe Pickett. Sadly, it was not renewed for season 3.

Just finished The Old Mad with Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow. Looking forward to season 2 which starts in early September.
