Music, Films and TV Series

Still loving Preacher but I'm obsessed with Banshee at the minute so haven't started Outcast, just getting onto the third series now and there's only one more after this.

 

Such good TV, and with only 38 episodes total it's not a complete chore to get through!

 

Also recently started a show (only three episodes in) called Roadies with Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall etc, has been pretty fun watching so far about the life of the sound crew behind the scenes. Has a great rock soundtrack (Lindsey Buckingham guest starred in the latest episode, doing a few acoustic numbers) and some great comedy moments. Recommend it

 

Going to give roadies a go, watching a series called 'stranger things' which is a bit x-files meets the goonies - based in the eighties too and has a great feel to it. On season 2 of Rectify now, its pretty heavy at times but absorbing. Marco polo season 2 has started too so i've got a few things to keep me going - watched the Vikings trailer last night - can't wait for September for that one.

As someone who has watched more than one person go through chemo and surgeries, I am amazed that he has been knocking out movies at the rate he has in the last 4 years. Cancer and the treatments it re

I’m more a fan of the psychological ones. The autopsy of Jane Doe is a good one

It should be a good watch. Hes definitely a what if regarding the Boro if he had stayed on for another couple of years. The Bobby Robson one on Netflix is worth the watch as well.

Rectify and the Americans are great.

 

Mr robot I enjoyed, particularly the first season. But so far I've been a little disillusioned by the 2nd season. Not sure how much longer they can hold my interest with the whole what's real and what's not aspect of the storytelling.

 

Vice principals is off to a very good start. Danny Mcbride is one of my favourite comedy actors and Walton goggins is one of my favourite actors full stop so it's a bit of a dream team along with the eastbound and down writers.

Yeah that's basically my exact thoughts on Mr Robot.

 

I watched two episodes of The Americans. Really enjoyed it so far. It looks very promising.

I haven't seen the Americans, due to all the other stuff I'm watching on drip feed, I'm holding out on Mr Robot - although I was unsure where they were going to take it after the way the season ended - the whole plot revolved around reality v imagination, so I will give it a go when I've rounded my others off. I haven't started Wayward pines 2nd season yet - anyone watching that?

Yeah I watched wayward pines. Season 2 is fine. Entertaining. But not as good as the first season and dipped in quality at times.

 

The Americans gets better and better and better. And then better again. Its probably the only series I've ever watched that has gotten to four seasons with each one better than the last.

Yes, the starting premise of The Americans - two KGB "sleepers" raising a family in early cold-war America - provides a wealth of possible plot lines and the script-writers certainly take full advantage. It's splendid stuff, well paced, credible and always improving.

I'm loving the Americans, one of those amazing series that slips under the radar - always great soundtrack and styling and occasionally amusing disguises!

Just started watching Stranger Things last night, loving it. Superb casting of the kids, it's like they've frozen characters from the Goonies, Flight of the Navigator etc in time and brought themt back to life! Great bit of nostalgia, as a kid of the 80's, it's fantastic to watch

    • I wouldn't be surprised if Lewis Wing's loan at Sheff Wed was cancelled and he ended up at another club. https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/sport/football/news/sheffield-wednesday-player-moore-snub-22850581 "Wing is one of six loan players on the Owls' books. English Football League rules stipulate only five can be named in a matchday squad. Although Moore has no qualms with carrying lots of loans, the likelihood is Wednesday will sign at least one more before the January deadline. Talks are ongoing with Arsenal over borrowing striker Tyreece John-Jules for the remainder of the campaign. There are big question marks surrounding Wing and Lewis Gibson's futures. Neither Wing nor Gibson have fulfilled their potential for various reasons. Three defeats from the last four matches has derailed the Owls' promotion push and Moore must quickly decide on the make-up of his loan contingent. Their season could hinge on the decision."
    • I get where you're coming from but it was hardly Roberto Di Matteo winning the Champions League though, was it? You can respect the way he came in for sure but I think it's important to acknowledge the difficulty of the task that he had when he came in, it wasn't overwhelming and he had a good group of players to work with.
    • I wouldn't describe Onel as deadwood personally. The only reason he left is exactly because the manager and style of play changed. I also think there's a very good chance we would have got him with or without Scott as I believe he is widely believed to be the player Warnock said he'd "take in a heartbeat" when potential transfers were being discussed.
    • Hospitality at the JCA is, indeed, very good. I've got a Scots mate who keeps threatening to take me to a Utrecht game. Must do it one of these days.
    • I can see where you're coming from Pidge, however, there is another way of looking at it, keep the players and have a better chance of staying up and we are a much better prospect for prospective buyers who may be prepared to go higher if others start over-bidding them. The more money we get in, the more we can pay our creditors. My preference would be to pay off all creditors 100%. I did come up with an idea whereby Mel lends the club the money to pay off the creditors and thereby becomes one himself, he writes off the £140M we owe him. The club leaves Admin and he gets 25% of the new debt up front. The rest is paid back over time, £2M at the start of each season and 25% of any profits made each financial year until the interest free loan is paid back to him. I'd also have Derby (and preferably the rest of the EFL teams) present a budget before the start of every season to the EFL, as happens here in the Netherlands. The budget has to be believable. Projected income and projected outgoings, a club knows then how much "extra" it has to buy players. The idea is to NOT make a loss. If, due to circumstances, you do make a loss, each subsequent year's budget has to include a realistic plan on how, and over what reasonable time scale, the club will pay off their debts. Failure to produce a realistic, believable budget sees the club getting it thrown back at them to amend and keep to the amendments. Failure to do so will lead to an immediate points deduction. Recurring infringements can see a club thrown out of the League. That would ensure nobody could end up where we currently are.
