- Its solo Samurai
- Its more star wars then the originals (what I think star wars should be)
- Its chapters of a story rather then episodes of a TV show which I think is the right choice
- Set and costume design is movie level (for the most part)

it does seem like high quality movie level production.. although I saw a boom mic float into the bottom of the frame last ep.

Only on Disney plus so far IIRC.

Big issue with Star Wars is they started out doing decently well making scripts aimed much more at adults but child friendly and then reversed it due to the merchandise.

Star Trek Picard will be released early next year. Hopefully better than the first Discovery series, although they did manage to pull it back during the second series. Anyone think that Discovery will make a third series?

In the mean time managed to watch the Expanse season 3. Actually a very decent and adequately scientific series.

really enjoyed discovery, looking forward to Picard. The Expanse was also very good.

Same.

I'd still recommend everyone watch it as its good, but it does end on a cliffhanger as the entire next couple of seasons that had already been written were canned. I wish Netflix would pick it up to finish.

Expanse - Loved this, graphically I think this was exceptional too

I loved The Mandalorian, thought it was brilliant, great story, characters and production.

I really want to like the Witcher but I'm struggling, on ep4 so far and it's not got me hooked. The stories just seem all over the place and none of the characters have really grabbed me. I've never played the video games don't know if that would have helped.
I'll see it through but a bit disappointed 😕

There seems to be several parts interleaved, starting with the grandmother/daughter, Grandmother/granddaughter, Witcher, whitch, and a few smaller pieces. It does not help that they used the same actress for daughter and granddaughter. Would have been better if they had sepia toned the back story parts, or put them out first, before going on to the later bits. Overall it could have been better, action scenes could have been better and they might as well have left the sex bits out. Looks like it's trying to be a bit like Game of Thrones and failing badly.

The Witcher just feels like side quests on the game with no substance, nothing in comparison to GOT.

Final episode of The Mandalorian got 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Mixing my spare time between The Expanse and Preacher, the latter season 1 was great but season 2 has noy hooked me.

I finally finished it over the holidays - Loved it all the way through. It is a deliberate slow pace, its a modern western and intended to be and not the action packed rollercoaster the movies have become.
Witcher I am only 1.5 episodes into it. Interested so far but I think the score on it is amazing. The most streamed show of 2019 instantly apparently beating the Mandalorion so it is a big hit.

It deserves 100% just for this scene:

Those two both laughing at them, loving them and hating on them for hitting "The Child" - Was good.


Flame trooper as well from video games - Thumbs up :)
