Did a catch up and binge watched a new series of War of the Worlds on Fox.

Part set in England and part set in France.

Good so far, a bit of a cross between War of the Worlds and Survivors( if you are old enough) and Day of the Triffids.

Got round to watching Deadwater Fell and god was it depressing. I suppose at least they wrapped the story up unlike some series nowadays, but dead kids does not make for a uplifting watch. I was saying to the wife it was nearly as bad as Save Me that was on a couple of years ago which also involved missing kids and was just constantly bleak. And lo and behold, series 2 of Save Me is on this week. I seem to remember the acting was excellent as was the cast, but I'm not sure I can face it in the current time we live in.

One to look forward to, Brooklyn Nine Nine returns on Thursday 😍🍻🥂
Series 6 just added to Netflix at the same time as series 7 starts on E4, which is weird. Put the first two of series 6 on earlier though. Both crackers. Couldn't have come at a better time, I was feeling pretty down today owing to the fact that we were meant to be in Bratislava this weekend.

This afternoon I've caught up on Series 3 of SEAL team, not sure where they're going to go after this season if everything currently happening pans out.

Latest series of Strike Back, for a covert Ops team this latest bunch are shite at doing anything covert and have luck rather than actual intel constantly on their side. Think it needs be final series and maybe reboot with Chris Ryan's other books.

Finally watched the 1st episode of Our Girl series 4, all I can say is she must be the unluckiest medic in the history of the RAMC, she gets blown up, kidnapped or into more contacts than most emtore brigades see in a decade. Not to mention the new abysmal Rupert in charge of them.

I just saw, on Netflix, a single season series about the origins of football in the UK.
It was called "The English Game" or something like that.

Not bad, I'm not a fan of association type football myself, but the short TV series was quite entertaining.

Did this series air in the UK?

The English Game - two episodes in on Netflix - not bad.
24 - on Series 3 and doing an hour each day - gotta love Jack Bauer
Life on Mars - halfway through Series 2 with Ashes to Ashes to follow on iPlayer
Got the Disney Plus package and watching the Marvel films in the recommended order
And two old episodes of ToTP on YouTube each day whilst on the exercise machine.

How the heck did I ever find time for golf?

Tiger King, a documentary on Netflix. Netflix do these documentaries very well and America provides an apparent unlimited subject base. This lot are another level though!

I have been doing the Marvels thing. Previously I had watched some of the early ones Iron Man 1 & 2
and Guardians 1 & 2

What order are you doing them in date of release or sequence of events? Gone for sequence of events myself.
This is what we've been doing which os by far the best way and so far makes the films tie in so much better.
