    Noticed that The Handmaid’s Tale box set was available on NowTV (after catching up with the latest episode of Game of Thrones) last night so finally sat down to the first episode which was promising... felt a bit like an episode of Black Mirror...

    Completed season 2 of Star Trek Discovery, it is simply brilliant, just brilliant. Sonequa Martin-Green is perfect as Michael Burnham, Anson Mount's portrayal of Christopher Pike is the best on screen and you can tell Michelle Yeogh just had fun. I am looking forward to season 3

    I like Bosch, I am still on season 3, but I have put it aside for now to continue later.

    edited for GoT spoiler -- apologies

    I don't know enough about the Night King to know why he personally had to go and execute Jack Wheelchair. If I knew that, maybe it'd make more sense.

    The Night King is a guy who is so important to his people that, if he gets killed, it's all over for them. So why not just send a thousand minions to knock over the kid in the wheelchair, if the whole thing was to kill him? He had about a dozen people guarding him. Made no sense for the Night King to expose himself in any way at all, he can command his army by waving his hand around slowly. Send that badass dragon to do it.

    And then the other team has 2 dragons. So leave one at the castle to set all the enemy on fire and have the other one pugged away to deal with the bad dragon when he pops up. They know that people who die can become part of the army of the dead, right? So why send all those soldiers at the start charging into them, knowing that when they die, they can then come back as part of the enemy's army? Jon Snow's tactics and team selection leave a lot to be desired.

    In the early stages of the show, it seemed that people made smarter decisions, or at least there were more consequences to their stupid ones. The last couple of series, not so much. Visually it's good, but as a story, meh. Started off well (I guess they had the book to go on then) but I suppose they are just wrapping it up now. I'll still be watching coz I want to know how it ends.

    It’s almost too obvious though, isn’t it? She might as well carry a big sign saying VILLAIN! with her at all times.

    Episode 3 was just epic, freaking amazing. It was both emotional, draining and exhilarating.

    Apart from sport and Grand designs and gardeners world I cant watch tv. I try, I sit down with the wife and my son and it is nice to be with them but I just cant watch anything they like, i end up staring in a trance or falling asleep.

    I spend time talking with you idiots about football and other crap, also doing a bit of wood work in the garage trying to build a shuffleboard.

    Can someone recommend a tv show for me, my favourite of the last few years was the detectorists.

    I would suggest you should view it for what it is. No need to over analyse it. And @NaijaSpurs is right, use the spoiler tag.
