Speaking of Amazon Prime - did anyone watch "The Wheel of Time"? I remember people mentioning the book series in the 'Books' thread, but I haven't read any of them personally.

Thought it was a bit naff myself, quite disappointing.

But I bring it up because I read today that Amazon have renewed it not just for a season 2, but a season 3 also. I guess we'll see how it goes... :?

Designated Survivor - 2016-2019 - Kiefer Sutherland

I'm not a politics person, by no means, and if truth be told, it was the wife who got me watching this, and have to say, its very good. Was an education for someone like me :) Kiefer is a right chip off the old block with a superb performance. Plenty of sub stories from the political side of things, to keep you second guessing. A side track of CIA type of stuff, which added another element to it all. If you're a fan of these sort of setups, then I'd expect a 10/10, as its not normally by type (as Im an Expendables fan) I'll give it a 7/10

I felt 4 seasons was bang on, anything more, would've made the series too stale, and covering way too much or repeating storylines. Personally don't like it (in any program) when a character goes out of it, and its not scripted in, they just disappear, :)

Worth a watch for anyone

I want to say that 'The Squid Game' is just a fascinating show well done for relatively little money, and it isn't spoiled even by ubiquitous spoilers in the media. Most of the screen time, the TV Show is a kind of adaptation of the postulates of game theory and an illustration of how narrow-minded people are often even in critical situations. TV Show hint that some individuals are treated only by being sent under bullets, and the grave will only correct someone. But I'm still glad that this TV show is now one of the Renewed TV Shows and the second season we will be able to see shortly.

Squid was pretty decent tbh, and if truth be told, I only watched it because my teenage daughters told me it was trending like, everywhere, and then I kept reading about this series with a famous kids game "Piggy Behind The Curtain" so, it got me. Binged it with my wife, although not a fan of watching stuff thats English dubbed, really spoils it, but having to get used to that now, as wife is a big "Money Heist' fan, and a load of other stuff thats doing the rounds on Netflix

"From" Spooky tv Drama available on Epix ...but can be streamed on your usual streaming websites *wink* - its decent..has a "LOST" vibe about it...a lot of head scratching and WTF is going on moments..but a good watch

HALO - a tv series from the game...VERY sci fi - obviously...has a Babylon 5 feel about it..looks like it could be a slow burner

TOP BOY - awesome....one too many storylines...by they all tie up at the end....last episodes is a wowser..shocker of an ending...

MoonKnight - a great openeing episode...bit diff to the usual MARVEL tv series....new character...slightly diff way of telling the story....Isaacs is quality !

Only started watching Parks & Recreation recently. What a show. Fair play to the writers and backers for coming back for season 2 as season 1 wasn't great bar the last 2 episodes. Ron Swanson is some legend.
