TV/Netflix/Amazon Prime etc series thread for 2021

Yeah, isn’t Baptiste a kind of spin off of The Missing? He was the detective in that show.

Ahh that’s it! I thought he was involved but the story in the first series of Baptiste didn’t make sense. Cheers!

Enjoying the latest baptiste. Remember the first series not being especially great

New Tuca and Bertie is so good, Netflix were fools to not renew it.

Oh wow, just watched the first episode, it’s so so good! Forgot how much I loved the first season.

I didn’t know, u git. I didn’t know :sob:

his new show just started any way - Ultra City Smiths

got a bunch of the patriot/perpetual grace super friends: dennis; lesley; mcpoyle; patriot’s dad john from lost; dewey crowe. also tim heidecker and john c reilly and tom waits and alia shawkat. also it’s stop motion for some reason. we can all watch it together and be disappointed together when it inevitably gets cancelled.

also for true patriot dorks only- he’s doing a podcast that’s supposedly an audiobook reading of that text book that lesley wrote, ‘the integral structures of the principal dynamics of flow’ it’s half self help book, half autobiography of his life and cocaine addiction, half flam-fastened-pan traps-to-the-maiden-apexes-of-the-jim-joints nonsense engineering word runs.

I love it, it’s very relaxing, it’s nice to hear lesley, he’s one the best fictional guys.

It’s absolutely brilliant.

Finished the 3rd season earlier this week and was gutted to discover that there won’t be anymore.

Is there anything worth watching on Apple TV (other than Ted Lasso)? Got a free trial

Of the things we’ve watched…

The Morning Show starts off weak but gets better and better as the series progresses. The last couple of episodes are fantastic. Good enough that I’m really looking forward to the second series later in the year.

Mythic Quest also stumbles a touch at the beginning but settles in to being a very fun comedy with a likeable cast of characters.

For All Mankind is a decent first series and a really great second that manages to pretty deftly manage loads of characters and storylines at once. Great effects too - that sweet Apple money is up there on the screen.

Been meaning to watch the Beastie Boys film but keep failing to get around to it.

Yeah, for all mankind is deffo worth a watch.

If you read the book, the beastie boys thing is just them in stage repeating what’s in that basically. It’s ok.

The Morning Show and Defending Jacob are both great.

For all mankind is one of the best shows in years.
A alternate history we’re Russia got to the moon first and what happens at NASA as a result.

Mythic quest, Ravens banquet.
A show about people working on a computer game. The first 2 EPs are clunky and not great. Then its brilliant from there on
