What TV shows have you been watching ?

  • Picard season 3. Phenomenal so far.

    I've never had access to it, but might look out for other sources. I liked TNG and like the Picard character and Patrick Stewart, so I'm intrigued by it. I'm saddened to hear his once deep rich voice so reduced though.

  • I have not watched it yet, but the Wrexham football club story seems genuinely heartwarming with McElhinney/Reynolds buying it and now getting promoted. I plan to watch the Disney plus show about it.

    One thing I hope to learn is the relative role each actor plays - the articles usually mention them both at the start, then exclusively refer to Reynolds as the savior, or the guy who knows how to make a shrewd investment or something along those lines. My brief research so far indicates it was McElhinney's idea and he approached Reynolds for the money. By way of background, I think McElhinney's show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the best American comedy there is.

  • This evening BBC4 showed a batch of episodes of Bobbie Gentry's late 60s/early 70s TV shows. It was a lovely couple of hours and I thoroughly enjoyed it. What a talented and beautiful woman.

  • Technically not a show I watched, I don't have access to it, and even if I did I wouldn't watch it, but seeing clips others have posted of Tucker Carlson's interview with Putin it again strikes me that Carlson seems to permanently have the facial expression of a post-concussion baboon that's been given a differential equation to solve.
