    Love, Death and Robots had a few really good episodes that I’ve watched so far. They are animated shorts done up in different styles, all for adult viewing.
    I think the biggest appeal to this show is the shock value.

    There are genuinely good shorts in this season, but a lot of what happens is more "shocking" than anything else. The first episode is a good example of this and I think the 3rd? The 3 robots one was just awesome as was the giant mech one.

    been watching Departures on Netflix, really nice and simple adventure travel show that is sparking the travel bug in me again.
    I cherry pick those episodes sometimes, especially when I am looking to go somewhere, or want to see how accurate it is based on somewhere I have already been. Pretty good show but my only complaint would be that sometimes I find they spend way too much time doing things nobody cares about (i.e. sitting in a pub for 1/3 of the episode rather than exploring).

    this is probably the reason why I'm enjoying the show (just starting the 3rd season), in sense that it is not your typical travel show listing you the most popular spots and make it as pretty as possible.
    they actually try to immerse with the local culture and gives you a perspective of daily lives.
    and sometimes sharing a local meal or drink is the way for the locals to welcome you.

    Finished rolling through Kitchen Nightmares UK version on Prime, so much better than the US version as it's not just forced drama and constant special effect sounds. Wish there was more of the UK than US.

    There are some good reddit threads on that show if you're interested - from people who have been on it as both employees and 'contestants'. It's surprisingly not that staged, but people are told to exaggerate their reactions and such. They purposely invite enough people in to overwhelm the kitchen on the 'test' night. Gordon is apparently a super nice guy and his anger with gross kitchens is genuine. Also apparently almost every single restaurant that has been on his show has closed down shortly after due to the owners not keeping up, or people being grossed out by the reason he is there haha. I thought it was interesting to read about anyway.

    I just finished Westworld season 2. It was good once everything was kind of explained as the timelines were at times difficult to piece together.

    Watched Triple Frontiers. Nothing shocking on this one, but above average for the Netflix produced movies so far..

    I hated the ending in that it made the entire movie pointless IMHO, but I liked it up until that point haha. Higher than average production value for Netflix. Sometimes you just want a 6/10 action flick though and in that respect it delivers.

    The Dirt on Netflix. Spent my teen years in the 80s rocking out playing air guitar (we didn't have console guitars) to Motely Crue. Fantastic Netflix film, highly recommend.

    I had high hopes for Triple Frontier after seeing the trailer, cast, production value and plot were all great. But it fell into the typical Netflix made movie basis, start off strong and then fall flat.

    Should have made the robbery more complex and a longer focus point than walking through the mountains for an hour. Pretty meh, worth watching if you're bored and have nothing better to watch.

    Wife and I started watching Drive to Survive last night. It's quite well done, definitely better than I expected it to be.

    Very let down by Triple Frontier as well, very lame IMO. Whoever they had as their military expert/fight co coordinator should be voted off the island, and not allowed to work in the TV/film business again. Most tv/films are a let down in this department, but this was astonishingly bad.

    April is going to be a crazy month. Game of Thrones, Hellboy, Avengers Endgame, and more.

    The Orville is quite good. Not being a Trekkie or a fan of Star Wars, I'm actually not turned off by the "sci-fy" aspect

    Just finished After life. 6 25 minute episodes. Easy watch, quite funny but also quite sad. Last episode was a bit of a departure form the overall tone set in the beginning of the season but I would be interested in another season

    Homecoming on Amazon is quite good. I’ve listened to the podcast so know the basis of what’s happening, but really enjoying it so far.

    I watched the movie Life on Netflix.
    I thought it was ok. Entertaining on the concept..makes one think.
    But I found the whole story just a failure of simple procedures.
