Watched a cracking documentary earlier based on the Punisher course that existing Royal Navy submarine officer's have to pass to be passed fit for command of a Sub, if they fail there is no return return their boat and can no longer serve as a submariner of any form instead have to go to surface fleet as no longer fit for the silent service.

THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY on Netflix, weird SciFi fantasy comic book series, about siblings with extraordinary powers.
Watched Ep1, a bit odd to say the least.
Anyone watched it ?

Yes. Saw it all waiting for a grand moment that made sense. In the end it didn't happen and I wish I'd given up on it. I thought it dragged on and what could have been really interesting just wasn't.

You may get more out of it but if they do a series 2 I won't be watching.

We watched about 5 episodes and were thoroughly bored so didn't finish it. Was taking waaaay too long to explain what was going on, just lost interest really. Despite having 'powers' several of the characters were actually very dull.

Not a series or tv but i have been on youtube watching a lot of the old Grand Nationals ,the race has been dumbed down in recent years but still a spectacular event ,and watching red rum go around jumping like a stag evokes memories of sitting at home with mum and dad and seeing how our respective punts got on .
going to see if there is any old Jack Hargreaves on the tube now as loved his out of town shows.
long live nostalgia .

Agree. I watched 2 or 3 episodes and lost interest.

We're watching The Boys. It's an adult take on a group of privileged and well paid superheroes, managed by an organisation, with their enemy being a small band of normals trying to bring them down. Quirky, sweary and engaging. So far.

Also not a TV Series - but when I feel down as I often do at the moment- the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony is I found very uplifting - though the whole section on the NHS was difficult and thought provoking for where we are today. But the memories of the evening and the whole games did lift me. Here’s the link - it only plays on YouTube but just click on the link to YouTube embedded in it.

Whilst I appreciated the production values in staging it, I found the whole thing quite silly and extremely irritating. Did at the time & still do.

Don't currently subscribe to the big streaming services - so currently looking at a lot on All4. Currently watching PAKT (a Polish political drama) and just finished The End Of The F*****g World - a dark & quirky British drama aimed (I guess) at a rather younger audience than me but strangely compelling.
