Hasnt it just won an award?
What is Yellowjackets on Paramount+? Any good?
Here’s an idea: watch it and make up your own mind.
Don’t subscribe to P.+…was wondering if it was worth…ahem…acquiring
if only there was a place where you could type in a question and get an answer?
Yes, it’s absolutely brilliant. I described it previously as being like Lord of the Flies meets Lost - a girl’s soccer team gets stranded in the wilderness when their plane goes down and sink into depravity in an attempt to survive. It switches back and forth between the timeline of the crash and 20 years later with the survivors who made it home dealing with the consequences of what they did to survive. It’s really well done and the cast is incredible - Melanie Lynskey, Christina Ricci and Julliette Lewis
It’s on a service I dont get (showtime) but am going to get a month once S2 is fully available to run through it.
Just FYI there’s a Mandalorian easter egg on google today. If you google Mandalorian, scroll down a bit and Grogu will appear and if you tap him then more things happen.
Also a not super obvious cameo in todays episode.
Im kind of burned out with it. I wasnt as enamored with the first 2 seasons as most other fans, and never got around to watching Boba Fett, which I understand you should watch to understand some of this season’s story lines. Not sure I can work myself up for it.
I am half way through the latest series of Jack Ryan, and it continues to be nothing more than disappointingly mediocre TV. Every season I get intrigued and every season it leaves me meh.
The Book of Boba Fett was so bloody awful that they actually (and I kid you not) inserted a full episode of the Mandalorian into it. Andor was OK if you’re bored.
it’s really just a Tom Clancy book brought to live action, but missing character development. Am in Season3 and whilst it’s a decent bit of mind-numbing action TV, they’ve already deviated from the love interest plotline which set up the previous season.
Yeah, Boba Fett was dreadful. Obi Wan was bang average, and so with my expectations suitably lowered I went into Andor ready to be disappointed.
I thought it was cracking telly. The best Star Wars to come out of the Disney stable by an absolute mile.
Sadly that’s like saying I’m the best elephant juggler in my house. The major criticism of it is it’s very slow hence my comment. Like you, I really enjoyed it.
Mandalorian season 3 continues to be a vehicle to sell Baby Yoda toys. Ep4 at times actually looked like Star Wars.
Next Picard out tomorrow, very exciting as it’s brilliant. Amazing that the closer these creative vandals get back to original material, the better they get. Odd that.
Now Sony is in charge of Dr Who, there’s hope there as well. Fingers crossed.
I’ve just started two new series. Picard series 3 (I’m 3 episodes in) is fantastic. It has (without giving too much away) a Wrath Of Khan vibe about it. It feels more like action-adventure Star Trek than the more ponderous first two series and I’m loving it so far.
I’ve also started a series called Funny Woman. It’s based on a Nick Hornby book and stars Gemma Arterton as a woman from Blackpool trying to make it in TV comedy in the 1960s. It’s light fluff telly but I enjoyed the first episode.
I though it was Disney+ that was doing the global distribution? The production is Bad Wolf (who did His Dark Materials) but it was set up by the producers that did the 2005 doctor Who revival.
Owned by Sony
Wasnt Bad Wolf the name of the company or TV station in the episode set as a big brother tv show?
It was the series arc for the Christopher Eccleston series. It pops up everywhere and it was the futuristic production company. That’s where they took the name from, I think.
Yes, they were kind of the big bad that was teased throughout the (I think) first of the rebooted series with Eccleston.
Edit: Wasn’t quick enough to beat @RedWhippet lol
I think it’s also the name of the beach where Billie says her final goodbye to David Tennant, forget which series that was.
