I have seen that, but not for years. I remember the kid who went on to be in Force Awakens, but no memory of her in it at all :(

Just to be clear. I am NOT going in to the Game of Thrones thread. [-X

I wont be able to watch it until its available on DVD/Streaming.

The chances of me avoiding all spoilers is practically zero. I have threatened my youngest son (who lives in Brighton) with extreme violence if he tells me anything.

I feel same way. Want to binge watch it on dvd or stream. Like you say though very hard to avoid spoilers being spouted out by offspring or on radio.

I was always surprised at how well I managed to avoid GoT spoilers. I genuinely don't remember a single thing being spoiled for me, and that's without having read any of the books.

Just finished watching the first season of Sneaky Pete on Netflix. Quite enjoyed that, doubt I'll be buying the t-shirt or anything like that, but passed the time well enough.

It was pretty cool to see Bryan Cranston play a bad guy (yeah, wasn't strictly a 'good guy' in Breaking Bad, but I think for most of it his heart was in the right place) as well. He's an actor I could pretty much watch in anything.

Watched the first episode of that and it didn't really take hold tbh.

Just finished stranger things again so maybe I'll give Pete a go again and see how it fares.

Did Cranston appear much in that first episode? Worth sticking with it until he's had some screen time, some very good scenes with him, including a several minute long monologue in one of the last eps that keeps you glued to it throughout, but overall I wouldn't say it's a timeless classic that you simply have to watch if it's not grabbed you after a couple of episodes.

He popped in towards the end briefly if I remember right. Yeah I'll give it a go though I'm torn now with maybe watching season one of preacher.

Been watching a Korean TV show called Man X Man. It's not exactly brilliant TV, but it's an enjoyable mix of spy action and comedy with a bit of romance thrown in. It's on Netflix if anyone wanted to check it out.

Just started watching Ozark last night on Netflix. Show about a money launderer from Chicago who experiences some significant upheaval in his life as of Episode 1 (no detail as I wouldn't want to spoil anything for anyone). Only one episode in but intrigued.

Also started watching Mr Robot on Prime and am about 4 episodes into S1 - pretty good so far.

Mr Robot is great, very original. It does go off the rails a bit later on though.

Had a look at Glow on Netflix. It's funny enough but don't think it's something I'd stick with. It does have boobies in it though, which is nice.

Mr Robot already fairly off the rails, just going through the whole morphine detox/get shot/hallucino-oddness at the moment - that's plenty weird enough.

Better hold onto your ass then, that's nothing compared to later.
