More UFO then.
Well, they've cut down on the tabs and they've amped up the more "personal" material (possibly as Starker seems androidy at the best of times )
I keep having to remind myself of the timeslot this was originally shown, as it is bleak AF as it gets tbh including a thing that we don't see that often on tv cough cough.
I'm onto the third disc now (ep 12 is next etc) and am sold. Yes, tis a tad repetitive (the same five shots make up all the action sequences ahem) but what tv show isn't tbh?

More soon!!!

Took a wee break from the moon of misery to peruse some of these Terrahawks then.
First 3 eps, of which we get an opening two parter and a ... memorable ... villain in the third ahem. The first does a decent enough job of setting up their stall. The commander is a right tight arse is my main impression
The rest of the gang seem a tad underwritten and all are of their time cough. I look forward to the rest.

I'd heard good things about it from family and friends and because the third series was being broadcast, I decided to watch the first series of Happy Valley.

It's a gripping series, very well-written, and one that showcases the acting talents of Sarah Lancashire, Steve Pemberton, Joe Armstrong, James Norton, Siobhan Finneran, George Costigan, and youngster Rhys Connan.

I have seen the first five (six) episodes of The Rig and I'm really enjoying that so far as well.

It's a little like The Thing on an oil rig, but different because it seems the threat is more atmospheric/environmental than parasitic, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has Prime Video.

After finishing that later today, I'll watch the second series of Happy Valley and probably go straight onto the third before I inadvertently stumble across some spoilers for the latest series.

I've also been watching the 14th series of Would I Lie To You?, which seems a little strange compared to current TV because it was filmed a couple of years ago when Covid-19 cases were much higher and social distancing was in force, so the panellists are sitting a few metres apart, audience members and crew are wearing facemasks.

As usual, the blend of unbelievable truths and outrageous lies is a great format, particularly with skilled storytellers who can make absurd fabrications sound plausible and ridiculous true stories appear far-fetched and fallacious.

I thought the first series of Happy Valley was excellent. The murder of the police officer on the road on the moors was proper grueling viewing.

For whatever reason i haven't seen the second series therefore i didn't bother with the third.

I have the first on dvd so will probably get the remaining two series when the hype has died down and prices have dropped.

Midway thru season 2 of Watching. Really can't remember it aside from the leads. I never even saw the last two seasons as they weren't shown here, with me being left with the rather downer cliffhanger of the season 5 Xmas special of Malcolm marrying someone else for decades! It's a lot of fun though, and Emma Wray really was very charming.
