I haven't watched any of it but Prince Harry has stated in his "Spare" book that his brother physically attacked him over an argument about Meghan, causing Harry's necklace to break then him¬†landing¬†in the dog's bowl causing bruising and scratches.¬†¬†ūüėģ¬† ¬†For heavens sake.¬† Another chapter in the saga of H & M.¬† This time from his own mouth and not the media.

I think the funniest part is the story that he told William and Kate that he was thinking of wearing a Nazi uniform to a party and they told him: "You should do that". Who amongst us hasn't offered encouragement to a brother or friend when they tell us the stupidest idea they've ever had? Gives me a whole new respect for the Prince and Princess of Wales.

He really does come across as quite dim

My current binge is The Joe Rogan Experience on Spotify.

Weirdly, I'm also into the Russel Brand shows on Rumble.

I've noticed that 90%of my viewing is on YouTube, Netflix, Spotify ect... Maybe it's time to stop paying for the TV licence?

You still have to have a licence though dont you?  I thought even if you didnt watch normal TV they still made you have one.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Only if you watch Live TV and BBC iPlayer.

Otherwise your TV is just a monitor.

Everything is supposed to be explained in series 3.

Unfortunately, Netflix never did make a series 3.

What is OA?

On another note is Unforgotten still worth watching after Nicola Walker left?

I Googled "OA" thanks. I watched my first Korean show on Netflix - "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" which was so good it inspired me to start learning Korean. My brother enjoyed it too and he's watching another Korean show called I think "The Agency" whilst I'm onto "The Glory" also Korean.

The second series of "From" is out on Stan which I've started but gone back to the Korean shows.

We just finished watching 'Sweet Tooth' on Netflix, which we thoroughly enjoyed although couldn't quite work out if it was meant to be for adults or children. Nice to watch something that was fairly original, and not trying to promote a specific agenda for once. There have been two series so far, and they say there is going to be a third and final one.

Yes it was great.  I initially thought this isn’t the same as the new actress had big boots to fill but it was excellent so stick with it.

Thanks for the recommendation. I hadn't heard of this show before, but I watched the first episode yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I remember Sweet Tooth popping up as a recommendation a couple of years ago when it was first released, but as we were still fiddling around with various restrictions at the time, so it was a bit too soon for my liking. I was chatting with a fella at the garage earlier today. By chance we got on to the subject of the pandemic, and he said it was the first time anyone had mentioned it in ages. We both agreed it almost seems like it never happened now. Maybe it's human nature that we focus on positives experiences and suppress the negative ones, or maybe we just weren't affected in QLD to the extent the rest of the world was. Either way, I'm glad it's now become a dim and distant memory.

Sweet Tooth is based on a comic book series first published in 2009 so obviously the plague in the comic book was clearly not based on Covid. The makers of the TV series obviously drew parallels as despite the TV series being announced as far back as November 2018, Netflix didn't sign the production order for the first series until May 2020.

I saw that last year. It's very good. Cage mercilessly makes fun of himself.

So excited to see a new series of black mirror pop up. Oh, my god beyond the sea is beyond horrific. I counsel people not to watch it, I wish I hadn't

@theonetruechris I'm also a huge Black Mirror fan so have been eagerly awaiting this latest series. I watched the first one last night and was seriously underwhelmed, which was disappointing considering the first episode of a new series is usually one of the strongest. Hope the other episodes will be a bit more out there.

I'd also just seen Renshaw, the vampire one with Cage, also great stuff.

Warnie - the televised thing.  What a steaming pile of shyte - how did his family let this go to air.  They must be so embarrassed.

From what I've read they fought against it, and certainly refused to have anything to do with it. Don't think there was any way they could prevent it being aired though.

It's cricket's version of the Crown complete with all the historical accuracy of that series.

Good, I'd hate to think they approved of it.
