Ya, I used use the laptop but was iffy enough. Got one of those android boxes about 2 years ago and it's pretty decent. Download an app and stream away. Sometimes apps get shut down but a quick Google will tell you an up to date one.

I got rid of teatv about six months ago, constantly failing to load the streams and when I could get something or would pause every few minutes

There's enough on Netflix I want to get through but wouldn't mind having another teatv type option

Really enjoyed Tom Lasso. Entertaining, humorous, some fine English women in it. Recommended

Got through Deutschland 83 in no time. Excellent TV, nice bit of tension in it. Looking forward to moving on to Deutschland 86 over the weekend.

There's 4 more episodes to come. Thankfully.

Half way through Season 2 of the Newsroom it's good but not great. The constant sarcastic dialogue between the main characters got a bit annoying after the first few episodes.

Watching The Beach: Isolation in Paradise on BBC 4. Interesting little show. It's made by and starring an Aboriginal film director, Warrick Thornton, as he potters about in a shack on a small island in remote Western Australia. Pretty much nothing happens,  but it's great  :laugh:

Rattled through Bodyguard this week as it was by the same writer that did Line of Duty. A decent watch up until the final episode which was shockingly weak.

Started 'Ratched' on Netflix this evening, not even bothered about the storyline, the visuals and audio are a treat, it's like they made a point of splashing the most beautiful colours around the screen

Finally got around to starting Ash vs Evil Dead, just finished the first season. So far, so good, plenty of over the top gore, some ropey acting and terrible jokes, exactly what I was hoping for

Don't know if anyone here gives much of a shit for Anime but still:

Finished Tokyo Ghoul the other week, last half of the last season felt a bit rushed and a lot weaker than earlier seasons but overall the show was decent.  Followed up with Neon Genesis Evangelion - a series that I watched maybe half of around last christmas so I decided to finish it off before starting anything new.  Considering it starts as a weekly giant robot vs. aliens battle show, at some point towards the end of the season it shifts into what it was alluding at all along and goes absolutely bleak and esoteric, then the end of the season is completely nuts.  Off the wall shit, would put David Lynch to shame.  Guaranteed existential dread.  Must watch the film to tie it off.



The End of Evangelion or the Rebuilds?

End of Evangelion.  Which I've since watched and it is absolutely class.  Definitely going to blast through the series and film again soon because it's way better than I was giving it credit for early on.  Did you watch the rebuilds, are they much use?  Most stuff I'd seen online basically said they're not a patch on the series & film but still worth a look to see the differences.

It'll depend, some people love them, others hate them. I liked them. First film is basically a remake of the first few episodes, but after that, the differences start really changing the whole story. The final film was due out in May, but's because of Covid, it's was delayed til January. Looking forward to it though. Hoping for a happy ending, but this is Evangelion.   :D
Probably the most common held theory is the Rebuilds are some sort of time loop, whether it's continuing on from EoE or setting up the original series , nobody's quite sure. Bit like a lot of the theories about Remake of FF7,.
