Both are on my "watch now" list. I started "Good Omens" last night, quite enjoyable!

We're back on American Gods and as soon as Pete finishes Good Omens we'll get after that. Both books were excellent and the same goes for the tv by all account. We finished the recent season of Star Trek Discovery a while back, that was really brilliant.

Well if we're talking TV series, then "Ramy" is extremely good.

Wanda Sykes' Not Normal, on NetFlix.

It was great.

The Barkley Marathons. This was really good.

Yeah. That's a good one. My son was on a roll for a while there playing it over and over.

Fleabag! Except all of you would probably dislike it. But I love it. LOVE IT. Absolutely unique and amazing show.

And my daughter was just talking about flea bag tonight. It's coming up after this Bad Omens show.

Just watched the newest season of "Black Mirror" on Netflix. That show never fails to deliver.

I think I might be the only person on the planet who thinks that show is derivative, preachy, and a sophomore RTF student's wet dream...

In other words, an anthology show?

I loved the first couple series. I haven't been drawn as much to the NetFlix series.

The clips I've seen look decent, but don't feel very much like Black Mirror to me. They feel different. Though that may just be the trailer style.

Out of interest, which episodes have you seen?

Series 1 trailer:




Season 3 trailer (1st Netflix)




Based purely on a few trailers and odd clips, so possibly unfair, but the Netflix series seems to make things explicit in a way that the original didn't.

Was there an early episode of that show where the Prime Minister/whatever was coerced into having relations with a partner of the porcine variety?
