What I love about this show, the honesty about older age.
The wit and humour are really good.
I love Grace’s outfits, such a old hippy but tastefully so, my style is similar and I do get called a bit of a hippy :bgrin
Anyway, hurrah, season 6 is here!



I love Grace and Frankie! My daughter turned me onto it a couple of years ago. So good.

And the latest season doesn't disappoint.

Rise up!

haha yes!

And the reality of that show, such as Grace's ex Robert, wearing a c-pap mask.
I was just reading, whilst we are in season, 6, that season 7 will be the last, and as I am so hooked on this show with such reality to it, I said to the hubby, we could watch it all again!

Now, I want to talk about a movie I watched last night on SBS, it was on late (I had trouble sleeping, with the lurgy, coughing if I lay down in bed, so I was up watching tv instead), well, it's called
To the end of the world.
Wow, it was truly a magnificent film, although in Chinese, with sub titles, filmed on the Antarctic, at the end of the show, it shows how the film crew stayed with the Chinese expedition and scientists at their base camp in Antarctica and how the film crew were having trouble adapting to the cold, but the captured images and reality of survival and how treacherous it is there, truly captured the spirit of it in the movie.

I recommend it.

Someone put me onto Queen of the South ... Netflix.

It's quite good. Mexican drug cartels and the war between a drug lord and his wife ... as seen by a woman who gets caught up in it all.

Do you know what i mean about it delving into a question often bandied about?

I don't want to give away and spoilers but i find it an intriguing exploration in view of world events.

Also watched Black Sheep with the fam. Have seen it before but it's a hoot and a half. My lad alternated between laughing deliriously and screaming my name out throughout. The wonderful New Zealand film community at it's finest.


What service is Black Sheep on?



Stan. It's a relatively new release so it should be easy to find. You need a pretty high tolerance for gore though. You have been warned.

Watching Cheer now, about cheerleading, my daughter used to do it,
Stressful training, injuries, acrobatics and being flipped in the air!
Once you watch this series of Cheer, one can only respect how much these kids go through by the time competition time comes around.

I've started watching a series called the 'witcher' .... so far I've only seen three episodes but it reminds me a little of GoT without the dragons ... in particular the story of Ayla in GoT

I've started season 3 of The Crown.

It's very good.

The Welsh mining disaster episode was excellent.

Better than regular tv.
No ads, no broken concentration, and we can watch what we choose at any time we choose, and not be dictated to time schedules of commercial TV with all those ads to want us to $pend.
Only thing I watch on regular tv is first 10 minutes of news.


Ditto.

Stan and Netflix are $14 each, and Amazon Prime is $7.

So, just over $1 a day to have what I want when I want it, with no ads.

Bargain.

If u can afford to subscribe to this crap. Times aren’t tough!

U should feel guilty in trying to con the Federal govt.

I’m considered being rich by both parties, yet I can’t justify using these services because it effects my consumption.

I can’t afford going to a restaurant even once a month!
It’s more like once in 3 months.

I didn't want a season 3 anyway.

Season 2 was far too corny, and I wouldn't be able to stand watching the bad acting by the kids again.

They should have left it as just one season.

I couldn’t believe it! So annoying and wasted my enthusiasm waiting for this season 2.
Now there’s no season 3 because of expense etc.
Looks like the Robinsons will remain lost.
BTW did the original series ever end with the Robinsons not lost anymore? I don’t recall how it ended.
In this new series the robot is different, in a better way.

What’s annoying is the female Dr. Smith, they made her unrealistically way too cluey and always one step ahead of everyone.

I will give Messiah a go also :thumb


Spoiler alert :bgrin

I'm watching season 2.

It's a lot cornier than season 1.



That was one thing that irritated me about the first season. If it gets worse, i doubt i'll bother.

I've been watching Messiah on Netflix. It's really good so far. Very interesting indeed.

Puts an oft cited question to the test.


I finished Lost in Space, but the acting by the kids was terrible.

The actor who plays Will, in particular, is a very irritating kid.

Anyway, it was a bit of fun, but I wouldn't write home about it.

It was very corny.

I'll give Messiah a go.



I suppose it was all a bit 'Captain America' for me. Cheesy and formulaic .. but i liked the robot. I certainly didn't like it enough to watch more of it after you and Lols have said what you have.

But i think you'll like Messiah.
