I'm looking forward to The Three Body Problem, and I am very, very curious about the new Fallout series. I'll watch anything with Walton Goggins in it, but this one definitely has piqued my curiosity as a long-term obsessive Fallout player.


I think I'm quite ready for another adventure.

Just caught up with Constellation, another excellent bit of (trippy) sci-fi on Apple. Quantum mechanics and all that!
As a platform Apple seems to do sci-fi really well

I see that The 3 Body Problem is now streaming. I'll finish up my season of Justified and get watching that instead.

EDIT: So, two episodes in on 3 Body Problem and I'm totally hooked.

I found the books to be a bit dry and didn't make it through all 3 of them. Hopefully Netflix won't cancel it.

I haven't read any as they sound rather impenetrable, but I aim to give the TV series a try

The books tell a great story but they aren't character-driven. The show definitely improves on that. Since the author is involved in the Netflix production I'm sure he approves of the direction it's taken. I'm down to the last episode, and I'm really looking forward to it. .

Just binged Ripley. It’s a beautifully shot and exquisitely written must see thriller.

I really enjoyed 3 Body Problem. The dynamic between the group of friends was awesome.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

I also thought the relationships in 3 Body were great, improving vastly on the book in that regard. It was a very good production and I do hope we get the two more seasons needed to tell the entire story.

I'm back to Justified, which I'm enjoying even more the second time around. It really is a wonderful show and is definitely in my top 15 if not my top ten.

Maybe it is because I read the books but Dune Part 2 was epic! thumbsup

Flotsam, I really enjoyed Fallout. The first couple of episodes had me worried, but by the end I believe they really nailed it and I can't wait for the next season. I loved seeing all the old familiar Fallout things and I'm especially happy to see Dogmeat!

It's also a critical success; the Guardian gave it 5 stars. I've never seen a 5-star review in the Guardian before!

I just finished Fallout. Like hagatha I wasn't sure during episode one but they tied everything together really well. It felt like a combination of Silo, Westworld and Walking Dead to me.

There was a nod to just about every facet of the Fallout worlds. I'm playing Fallout 76 right now and I'm happily surprised at how much of the detail they got right. The only things really missing so far are Supermutant colonies and hordes of feral ghouls.

Yum Yum Devilled Eggs, anyone?

Has anyone watched Baby Reindeer on Netflix? It's a true story of what happened to the actor who plays the lead role. Warning though, some scenes are quite intense and could be triggering for some people. The acting is superb. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 100%. And it is well earned.

I just watched the trailer and it looked comedic to me. ? I'm guessing like a defense mechanism?

Going backwards a bit, I agree they nailed Fallout. It took a little while to get you there but it so delivered a legitmate Fallout experience. Hopefully there will be more to come.

I am still enjoying Foundation, but meanwhile there is a second season of the excellent Blue Lights just starting on BBC: definitely worth a look if you have not already tried it https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14466018/ thumbsup

I just watched the first episode of Fallout. So many familiar places already! Walton Goggins is great! Really loving it...

Gerry, I absolutely loved 3-Body Problem and am looking forward to Season 2.

Draclvr, I was really worried they'd mess up Fallout, but for the most part they pulled it off. Walton Goggins is great in every role he's ever played. I also loved Michael Rappaport's whiny snivelling Brotherhood Knight, and the cheeky way they made the Knight's voices sound deeper and more menacing through the Power Armour. The details are amazing. One of the first things I noticed was someone getting killed with a doll's arm shot from a Junk Jet.
