Latest season of Jack Ryan was pretty good.  The first was as well.

Just finished it, wow.  Based on a true story 😞

I finished it - very worth the watch! But tell me one thing, how is that Toni Collette gets all these great parts playing an American in American movies. Not being critical, I love her performances and I think she totally deserves everything, but I just find it hard to see how an Australian gets chosen to play such a died-in-the-wool American character, especially when, I imagine, a lot of US borns would trying for the same part?

Then again, Meryl Streep played Lindy Chamberlain in the Evil Angels.... 😝

She played a pom in a movie we watched last night and I wondered the same thing

Because she’s a known and proven quality.  If you are wanting someone for a particular role and you can afford it you go with quality.

I watched the first episode of Unbelievable on the plane. I found it really slow moving. After all these recommendations I will have to watch the second episode to see if it is any better.

 

After 12 months of no Dr Who I am looking forward to seeing the new series. I will have to find a way to VPN to watch it or binge watch it when I get back to Oz in late January.

I'm really getting into The Morning Show.

The first ep was so so and the second slightly better and then ep 3.  Bam

BBCs Dracula is exceptional. If you're a fan of League of Gentlemen and Inside No. 9 you'll get plently of ah-ha moments. Be prepared for a wild ride.

For the cat lovers out there 😎 Netflix "Don't F@#$k with Cats".  Might have to close your eyes once or twice, but is weirdly fascinating.  A gang of computer nerds and animal lovers use the power of the internet to try and track down a particularly sick individual who enjoys posting videos on killing kittens.

Bake off with the Derry Girls was a hoot. If only all Bake offs were this authentic.

I saw the shorts of this and need to see it. 

Anyone any idea how to watch Channel 4 in Aus.

"Classic Countdown" on the ABC right now. Pussyfoot, ACDC, JPY et al. Footage from the 70s when I was a teenager.. Great fond memories from my youth.
