    I watched "The Space Between Us" on a whim on Friday. It was likeable young adult fodder that I'd have bet my left nut was a novel adaptation, but wasn't. Decent performances from
    Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson, and the usual decent standard phone-it-in from Carla Gugino and Gary Oldman.
    It all looks nice and is harmless enough.

      I checked my Netflix account and I apparently stopped watching The OA after only two episodes. I've heard a lot of praise for season two, so maybe I'll have to continue season one--however, if I only watched two episodes, it obviously wasn't holding my attention the first time around. So IDK.

        binned it after 2 eps as well. It mistook boring for spooky.

          Ah. Okay. That's why I packed in Criminal Minds years ago. It's just too upsetting. Pointlessly so.

            I watched Eighth Grade on Netflix last week. If you have a daughter around that age, it'll break you up. But worth watching. Lovely little small film.

            Also tried to watch Get Me Roger Stone, but found almost everyone so loathsome and unredeeming that I couldn't finish it. And I watch lots of stuff about Nazis, ffs.

              Quite enjoyed The Game, four or five years old but new to us. Solid old school Cold War drama, good cast and visuals.

                Eighth Grade will give me flashbacks, so I havenít watched it.

                I am watching Dancing on the Edge, an English series from a few years back about a black jazz band in London in the 30s that gets caught up in intrigue and drama.

                  Season 2 of Happy! starts tonight. I'm recording it, but I don't know if I'm in the mood to watch it tonight.

                    There's a season 2? It doesn't seem like a story that could have a season 2, but maybe they didn't finish the book in season 1.

                      "DRUG SCONES!". This series of Derry Girls just keeps on giving. Marvellous stuff.

                        I am avoiding them and recording them all to watch them in a row. years of watching boxsets has rendered me incapable of waiting to follow a tv series.

                          Scone as in gone or cone up in Derry? I can't get used to salt of the earth types in Dublin using the cone type pronunciation and thinking the (correct) gone way signifies high falutin snobbery.

                            Apparently Grant Morrison had to write a new story arc for season 2. I hope it lives up to season 1.

                              God but I'm bored with The Sopranos.

                                What season are you in? I remember it hit a lull, but can't recall when.

                                  Is it towards the end of 5? Just watched a whole episode that was pretty much all a dream. Bollocks.

                                      Have you watched 'Deadly Class'? I enjoyed it. The finale was this week and it ended on a definite cliff-hanger, so I hope that means it will be back with a second season. I loved the song choices they made in this series.

                                      I'm so into these comic-book and graphic novel based shows that I find the "reality-based" shows kind of boring. I watched the first episode of Happy! last night. The continuity from the first season was good--much better, in fact, than in some of the Marvel Netflix adaptations. That's my non-expert TV reviewer opinion, anyway.

                                        Did anyone watch "The Believers Are But Brothers" last Sunday on BBC4, by the way?

                                          Yeah, it could have been 5. We couldn't get to each episode of the early years fast enough. And then, yeah, maybe the end of 4 and 5 got dull. There's only 6 seasons, so you should probably see it through.

                                            Anyway, The Highwaymen on Netflix. Harrelson and Costner doing a TV Movie of The Week rendition of the Bonnie and Clyde story, told from the cops' side. Not great, but good fun. Enjoyable for the period stuff and the story overall, with a few clanger performances.

                                              Watched Ep1 of S3 of Santa Clarita Diet. So far, no sign of any drop off. Some brilliant one-liners.

                                                Yeah, itís ok. A much fairer portrayal of the real cops involved than previous films that lionized Bonnie & Clyde who were, after all, cold-blooded murderers.

                                                But it does, to some extent, allude to the dark history of the real Texas Rangers. Now they are, essentially, part of the state police. But in the 19th century, they committed all kinds of atrocities.

                                                  I didnít like it as much as the previous seasons. I guess itís just not as novel now.

                                                    Just started Project Blue Book; one episode and reserving judgement.
