She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. If the first episode is anything to go by, this series is gonna' be an absolute blast.

Yeah, I thought it was great, too.

'Twas. And that post credits scene was perfection.

I would say not so far - as in, not in the first episode.

I was expecting to dislike She-Hulk, but it was really very good indeed. Same thing happened for me with Wayne's World. First impressions aren't always right.

Interview with the Vampire is holding my interest.


Check that - I'm hooked on this. Great stuff.

I really, REALLY did not like that take on regeneration. Feels like a 'break glass in case of emergency' knee jerk reaction to get people talking but honestly i'd rather they just plowed onto pastures new, regardless of what folks thought of the last few seasons.

I guess they're setting this up to explain The Curator but it left a particularly unpleasant taste in my mouth as these handover sequences are supposed to give us even a brief impression of the new incarnation to pique our curiosity.

Well, Chibnall’s final Dr Who was apocalyptically awful. I mean, honestly, the worst TV I’ve seen in years. Poor Jodie Whitaker — I can’t believe how bad that was. What the actual FUCK was that?

It was 85 minutes of people shouting plot at each other barely audible above the Splosions and zaps without a hint of character being developed. All one note too until the last five minutes. It can't all be turned up to 11 all of the time. 
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

The Horror Channel is screening Space: 1999, starting tonight with Episode 1 of Season 1 at 7pm.

I bought the season 1 box set on Blu-ray a few years back. Some of it was absolutely cracking. Plus the Eagles!

yeah, "I don't do robes" made me smile.

It was like 2000ad in the 1990s - sifting through oceans of dross for a few nuggets of gold.

Neither would I, had I been forced to see this.

Not to mention that incessant music. To think people used to say that Murray Gold's scores were overbearing.
It was loft ladders what killed our Martin.

I had fun with it. The plot was nonsense and it was stuck in 5th gear the whole time, but once the Master was out of the way it stuck a nice emotional landing. And of course, since I didn't watch it until last night, I had the ending spoiled 15 times over by content "creators" reaction videos being shoved into my YouTube feed.
