I just finished watching an annoying but addictive show (my daughter wanted me to see it) called “Haters back off!”
I don’t really know what to say, maybe it will become a bit of a cult show, already makes me feel like putting on red lipstick badly and pull faces :bgrin
And.....yipeee, the next season of Lost in space finally starting on Tuesday!

Lost in space season 2 didn’t start until Wednesday, which made me come to a conclusion, Netflix is American, it was their Tuesday (and being a day behind meant Wednesday for the land of Oz)
With Lost in Space, it’s becoming a drag with things constantly going wrong!

I will just keep talking to myself in here :bgrin
I was trying to find the topic thread of movies we watched in this forum somewhere but can’t find it.
Soooo.... went to see the latest Star Wars yesterday (The rise of Skywalker) Very interesting and amazing special effects, a few lovely surprises too.

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.

Re: lost in space, it ended up in the air (pun intended)
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

:gsp don’t say you haven’t been warned of the disappointment. No season 3. Waste of invested time, especially after waiting months for season 2.
Say no more :bgrin

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.

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.

It’s not crap, it’s the best thing we have had on tv these last few months.
It’s only $10 a month approx.
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.

I've started season 3 of The Crown.

It's very good.

The Welsh mining disaster episode was excellent.

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

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.

Don’t agree but that is OK. Why not register, guest? Easier to post that way.
