Started this last night....

A virus is spreading in Moscow and everyone who is alive struggles to stay.....alive. A group of "friends", family and strangers bond together and try to make it to a remote lodge on an island.

These people struggle to get along. Some want to desert the others. Some are looking out only for themselves.

I believe I made it to ep 2 or 3...I forget. I will watch until the end as this reminds me of the BBC series, Survivors, which I liked. As long as this doesn't turn into a zombie series, I am AOK.

Will with hold rating.
Took a while but we finished "To the Lake". Overall, I enjoyed it. Plenty to criticize in terms of predictability, plot holes, etc. but I took an interest in the characters, was eager to keep watching and yearned for more at the last episode. That's how I judge a series these days. If I'm looking forward to a new season, I'll give it a thumbs up.

Never watched "The Crown", going to start that this week. I'm a bit ambivalent about the Royals but can't ignore the critical praise any longer. Or should I dive into "Queen's Gambit"?

I am waiting for the second season of His Dark Materials to be released, it could be pretty epic if it keeps following the books. I just hope the solve some of the pacing issues they had in the first season
If you know where to find it...it is airing on BBC about a week ahead of the US releases. Episode 2 was available online on Sunday afternoon....HBO isn't going to air it until the 23rd.

No idea why networks do that shit in this day and age. Happened with Sherlock as well with an even larger gap. Yes, this is based on a book so there's no real secrets/spoilers, but don't they live for internet discussion, hypothesizing, recap articles and podcasts, etc.?

If you want to ride the hype train, don't release the show a week late in your biggest media market. I don't feel the need to participate in internet discussions for this show, but I just checked the reddits, and they are trying to navigate avoiding spoilers and maintaining separate discussion threads for UK vs US release...what a mess.

I watched a video about Raised by Wolves, and yep, not gonna bother with it. Looks like garbage.

Crown first, Queen later.

I watched the first 2 seasons for The Crown and thought it was very good. I was expecting more (maybe heavily fictionalized) so lost interest after realizing they were simply just recounting the Windsor's lives.

I finished Queen’s Gambit.
Fucking Fabulous.
There ought to be a cologne.
Queens Gambit was outstanding. I've never been so excited watching someone play a game I knew absolutely nothing about.

Yeah. I keep waiting for them to convert a carriage into a time machine with Ye Olde Flux Capacitor and travel back in time to where Charles falls out of a tree and stops Phil The Nazi meeting Lizzy the Anointed before playing Sir Jonathan B. Goode on his oboe in front of the entire school.

Maybe they could leap forward in the next season and keep Andy away from that ghastly Epstein chap.

Never watched Grimm, but otherwise, this is a solid list, though I admit I stopped with Supernatural around season 4 and Teen Wolf around season 3.
Supernatural’s best is definitely S1-5 (original plan was to cancel after S5)

Teen Wolf is S1-3, with 4/5 watchable, but starting to tail off

I recommended The Crown to my mother to watch and her reply was, "I don't need to watch it. I lived under the crown"
Game, set, match: Mum

Prime is going to release the first 3 episodes of The Expanse on December 15th. Now that's the way you are supposed to do it
