Animation gets a bit ropey towards the end, but that was a fun Saturday morning diversion. The best thing in the series was actually

 

Spoiler

A subtle visual joke about an old Nokia phone being indestructible :lol:

There’s a brilliant documentary called Halston on Amazon Prime at the moment, it’s worth two hours of anyone’s time but will be particularly of interest to anyone who watched the superb Ryan Murphy Halston mini series on Netflix.

I'm watching Sisyphus: The Myth at the moment,  it's a South Korean mystery time travel thriller very much inspired by the Terminator franchise but without the robots, starring the main guy from Stranger. Its pretty great so far with some cool action sequences and a proper twisty timey wimey storyline.

Tenet appears to be on Netflix Australia ,  hopefully I a) understand what's going on and b) enjoy it - missus is  supposed to be away next weekend so I might get to sit down and watch it in peace.

Like a lot of time travel stories, as it gets towards the end, you start to think about it more, and then it all falls apart spectacularly. Then it goes full LOST.

 

Good first half though.

I had the same feeling. Spectacular is the word, it's amazing how completely illogical it gets by the end. JJ Abrams would be proud, "focus on the spectacle and don't waste time trying to make your story make sense."

There’s a great little music documentary series that’s appeared on Netflix called This Is Pop. I’ve watched two so far, one about Boyz II Men and another about T-Pain and the Autotune phenomenon, both really enjoyable. Other episodes are on Swedish music, Country pop, Britpop, festivals, protest songs etc.

The episodes vary in style and quality- the brit pop one has a channel 5 doc style voice over, it's rather odd.

 

The Boys II Men, Autocue and protest songs where all really good.

Monkey is on Netflix in Australia and I assume elsewhere..

 

Not the remake from 2018. The 70's version!

Such happy childhood memories stirred by that title sequence!

 

I think Monkey might actually be my favourite tv programme ever.  Better than Breaking Bad.


C'mon Netflix UK, sort it out!

Sex/Life

 

Uber tacky Mills & Boon bonkbuster. If you ever wanted to see Sarah Shahi's tits then they're on display for literally 50% of the season. The amount of nudity is really strange for a softcore show. It's not a good show by any count and the Aussie bloke has a way of speak-ing slow-ly that makes him sound really stupid. But Shahi is extremely pretty and watching her in endless simulated sex scenes isn't exactly a chore.

 

Bizzare/5

 

PS: She has a young son in it who is fucking creepy as all hell. Unintentionally, I think.

Akira has just popped up on Netflix.

 

I also noticed there is some sort of Netflix Original GITS SAC show done with cg, has anyone watched it? I guess it’s too much to hope for that it’s good?

I enjoyed it. Like most things in my saturated brain I can't remember many of the specifics, but I know I'm on board to watch the upcoming second season. I think it took a while to focus on its main narrative, but it did justice to the characters and nailed a lot of the tech and ideas from the books.

It's pretty mediocre. Not in the same league as the original GitS series.

GITS SAC = Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

 

^ for the benefit of anyone like me who had to Google that.

That implies you’ve never watched it! It’s fantastic, get on board.

That's correct 😊 @ZOK. I don't think I've ever watched any anime (is that the right term?) in my life. It just doesn't appeal to me at all. Maybe I'm missing out?

 

I think the closest I've ever come is watching and enjoying both seasons of Love, Death and Robots.

Man alive! L,D&R is to decent anime as eating a packet of crisps is to getting your dinner at L’Enclume.

 

Have you watched Akira? That is one of the pinnacles of the genre, as is the original GiTS film, but SAC is probably a bit esoteric if you’ve not dipped your toe in the film first.

 

@multi, if you watch Akira you need subtitles, the dub is atrocious.
