Peter Jackson‘s The Beatles: Get Back is absolutely magnificent.

Yes, it’s eight hours long. Deal with it, make time for it, and submerge yourself into it. It is well worth the commitment.

The footage is intimate, revealing, and shows what frankly brilliant songwriters Lennon and McCartney were, and how they bounced ideas off each other, like generations of working musicians before and since.

There are moments of jaw-dropping brilliance here; watching Paul McCartney jamming around on his Hofner Bass seemingly with nothing, only for moments later, something to emerge, and that something rapidly becomes Get Back, is absolute genius.

If you even have only a passing interest in the Fab Four, this series is a must watch.

My anoyance is that Donald Duck has got his beak into this. I will no doubt have to suscribe and watch it (the Beatles are part of my life fabric) but I am so p****d about the way it is being put out, I was really looking forward to seeing this at the cinema with a great sound system and in an atmosphere generated by being among other fans.

I’ve watched the first one, it was fun and nice to see them dick around, break into covers and hash out songs just like any normal band would.

Finished 'Landscapers' last night. Great performances all-round, particularly the two protagonists. Great that Thewlis is back on the tele. It reminded me a little of the 'singing detective'. Especially, the deconstructed recollections.

Oh and yeah, if you like cerebral science-fiction: Foundation (Apple TV+) is well worth a watch.

Whether or not you’ve read the Isaac Asimov books on which it’s based, it’s very enjoyable.

Anyone watching Boba Fett? I think it is flipping tremenj!

It's good but The Mandalorian set the bar too high for me. The Mandolarian has added it's own elements to the mythos; it's a completely new story (to me at least but I haven't read that many of the books).

Boba Fett just seems to be wrapping existing things in to the story, I can't think of anything new so far. Plus, he was a bounty hunter at the start and he seems to have undergone a complete character u-turn off screen.

Ah, you’ve clearly not watched the last couple of episodes of Boba Fett, then?

(A hint: you really ought to).

I really like what they’ve done with the character.

I have one to watch and loved Episode 5, which is kind of the point, it was more fun than all of the previous episodes combined.

Just wanted to bounce this up. Me and the Mrs finally watched the last episode last night and I have to say, I thought it was an excellent series and really hope they continue with it. I haven't read the books, but I thought the story progression and character development was a really good pace. Though Rand was a whingy prick if I am being honest.

Do you like the books of Lee Child?

If you do, check out Reacher if you have Amazon Prime TV; the first series is there, and is an adaptation of the first Jack Reacher novel, Killing Floor.

And it’s ace. A proper portrayal of the character, way better than the two underwhelming Tom Cruise movies, and with an actor in the title role - Alan Ritchson - who is actually built like the proverbial brick shithouse, so a much better representation of Jack Reacher (who, in the books, is built like a tank).

That's a long time coming. I think I was in my early teens when I read the Foundation trilogy. I remember almost nothing about it now though except possibly that there was a character called Mule (or was that something else.

Growing up when Star Trek first aired I had a real love of Science fiction and I think it was the computers on Star Trek that influenced me towards a computing degree and career in that industry.

Anyone watch Jack grealish’s ancestors otherwise known as peaky blinders? I thought it was better than it had been for a while. Only showing 1 a week though so I can’t watch it all in one night like most series now!
