I quite enjoyed the Ted Lasso finale. S3 wrapped up storylines and was consistent with the growth journey the characters were on. The way they leaned into Rebecca and Ted’s relationship across the episode brought things full circle. Just lovely feel good tv and sometimes that’s all you want. 📺
All caught up on Ted Lasso S3 ready for the final episode. My prediction is Ted resigns as coach to go back home, Coach Beard stays. Ted recommends Nate take his place as head coach. 📺
If you start now and watch seven episodes a week (including specials) you will have completed all of the 2005 onward episodes of Doctor Who before the 60th special airs in November. 📺
Watched the first two episodes of Silo. The set is exceptional and the cast are great. It’s based on a book and I must admit I’m thinking it probably would’ve been much better turned into a movie instead of a ten episode series. 📺
Watched the first episode of Mrs Davis as it’s had a thumbs up from people with similar viewing tastes to me. Very quirky and fun. I’ll be watching the rest of it. 📺
The news that Murray Gold is returning to Doctor Who is quite exciting, for me anyway.
I love the way each season he created new material, giving each important character their own piece. You hear Clara’s theme and you see that leaf blowing on the wind. You hear “I am the Doctor” and you see Eleven leaping into action.
Hearing his theme in 2005 when the Doctor finally returned to our screens was just so exciting. It was a new arrangement but so familiar and took me straight back to how hearing that music as a boy meant the latest episode was starting and for 25 minutes I was going to be caught up in an adventure in time and space.
Finished The Diplomat on Netflix.
Good pacing, underlying story isn’t overly complex and links everything together. I’ve seen comparisons to West Wing but I think it’s closer to Madam Secretary. If you liked those or more recently The Night Agent or The Recruit on Netflix you should enjoy this. 📺
Some spoiler free thoughts on Star Trek Picard S3E8.
My two favourite lines:
“Is this a rescue mission or a continuation of the torture”
“Personal space is a right”
My favourite scene was the conference room, complete TNG fan service and I loved it. 🖖🏻📺
Just watched The Mandalorian S3E6.
For a show that’s about “The” Mandalorian it’s spending a lot of time on Bo-Katan. Is she now “The” Mandalorian?
Not even sure why they bother showing Grogu apart from merchandising tie-in.
I’d like more Andor instead of this. 📺
Star Trek Picard S3 just gets better with each episode. Jonathan Frakes does a superb job as director of episode 3.
So many great lines. 🖖🏻📺
