^ This one is a dramatisation. Maybe I should watch a documentary on it, thanks. I'd say I'm surprised I hadn't heard of the scandal, but there are quite a few big news events that I'd never heard of. Elizabeth's going to jail in April and has recently given birth, which is really sad for that baby who will grow up without a mother.

(Whoops, I misspelt the title it's The Dropout )

Did you see Erika Cheung's TedTalk?

Piñata Masters on Netflix. The usual competition crafting show format, but not as boring as some can be (like that wood one on C4) and some good themes (even a few from Stranger Things).

Primes content seems to have taken a real dip lately.. ? I've been thinking about cancelling it and subbing elsewhere.

^ yeah, I haven't spotted anything pickle tickling on prime for a while, especially tv series. I want to see Everything Everywhere All At Once on there though.

I'm watching Extraordinary on Disney+ it's a bit silly and if I'm being fully honest, I've only really stuck with it because it stars a really cute tortoiseshell cat. It's an easy, silly watch.

Really enjoying Black Butterflies on Netflix so far. It's a French thriller.

The Following (2013–2015) with Bacon

I've only watched the pilot so far so I can't really comment on the series other than it seems to be the usual Seven/Red Dragon sort of tortured cop brought out of retirement to track down a super-duper serial killer.

Whenever I think of the word Bacon I start salivating for a bacon roll with tommy sauce.

I do try but most series and film scripts are terribly flawed. Don't get me started on Alien: Covenant that I watched some of a few days ago... No one involved said to Ridley Scott this is a totally stupid script?

^ I can't even remember the last time I had bacon. I only ever used to eat if you could whack it on the table and it smashed into pieces. Crunchy.

The Masked Singer my guesses are:


It's the final of Happy Valley tonight. Bam!

Netflix excited me for a minute, Luther- the film was advertised. But it's not actually on there, it's at the cinemas feb 10th. (On Netflix March 10th)

I'm giving "the Last of Us" another go, I fast forwarded over the initial ick bit. It's quite well done I think...seems to take a lot from "The Girl with all the Gifts"

"You" starts on Wednesday, whoo-ooop

Also love the masked singer. My guesses have been way off so far, except for knitting who I recognised the second she started singing.

I think Rhino is James Arthur

Fawn - Anne Hathaway (she may be too famous to do this though lol)

The rest I haven't the foggiest

I'm currently watching American horror story

The Happy Valley finale? It's only been running since 2014 and I haven't heard about it until now. The old folk were talking about it at the coffee morning yesterday. I can't remember the last time I watched the BBC.

I watched a documentary about the serial killer Patrick Mackay. Oddly I hadn't heard of him before yesterday.

Just read "DEVIL'S DISCIPLE Forgotten serial killer who butchered a priest with an axe and is UK’s longest serving prisoner could be freed"

The guy is a complete insane nutcase and a psychopath/sociopath. I hope they don't let him out.

That's the one I watched. No Fire TV Amazon is promoting a Prime documentary about his case, I'm not going to pay to watch it when there's plenty of free ones on other apps.

very poor ending to an otherwise excellent series,

personally, I think it could easily have done with an extra episode at least to tie up all the loose ends.

I guess they had all had enough and basically said " The End"

Yep, what a shame to make of hash of several pretty compelling storylines, with a rushed, half arsed The End.

^^ no problem, that she is.

^ yes, I agree. It was a bit like - let's randomly connect the blue dots on this woman's sofa. The pharmacist story ended without ending.

Apparently they filmed a few different endings.

I laughed so hard when she said, "he bit meh" during that tense moment.

I did think it was good though, regardless!

^ yeah, the more I think about how they ended the series the less I understand. The pharmacist story line just needed more time, it's literally like they couldn't be arsed to finish writing it.

The climatic scene with Tommy jarred with so much of the development that came before



But, still, a 5/10 finish to a 9/10 series.
