    I think SOTD is a masterpiece. I can't think of a single fault with it.

    I really liked Hot Fuzz but I didn't really get it. It wanted to be a buddy cop wicker man, but wasn't really either, where SOTD is just a straight up love letter to zombie films.

    1 Shaun - undisputed
    2 Hot Fuzz - conceptually flakey but lots of brilliant moments
    3 Worlds End - probably holds its overall concept better than HF in retrospect but lacks in moment to moment fun (although it is much sadder in its sad bit)

    Hopefully he will do something with Edgar Wright again soon.
    I like the sound of the ghost hunter / paranormal thing him and Frost have done

    Not heard of that. Could be great. They'd do a good British Ghostbusters type movie

    Paul was good (surprisingly)! But then again, I don't mind Seth Rogen.

    The End of the Fucking World (season 2)

    Not quite as good as season 1 but far closer than I'd ever expected it would get.

    9/10

    South Park (latest season)

    Only 6 episodes this season but it was really good, they pissed off China and got banned then doubled down on it. then made fun out of what is happening with trump at the minute

    9/10

    :)

    ... that wasn't the actual season finale of this season of South Park. Just of the story arc of the first six episodes.

    Does 'His Dark Materials' (BBC) get any better? I've just watched the first episode and pretty much cringed at every acting display. It feels like a show I would have watched on BBC in the afternoon post-school slot when I was a kid.

    I know it's received pretty favourable reviews so it's either me bouncing off it hard, or it's just a poor first episode.

    I watched most of the first episode and thought the acting was OK? Certainly better than most of the British TV stuff.

    Acting seemed fine for me. Decent cast too.

    Really? I thought the lead actress playing Lyra was terrible, straight out of Cbeebies school of acting, and McAvoy not what I was expecting from Lord Asriel. Mrs Coulter also felt like she was being played well over the top.

    For Lyra I just think she's terrible, but for the other two perhaps I just inferred a different character from when I read the books.

    Film was shit, son didn't like the source books, so you're probably correct.

    Regarding His Dark Materials. I thought the first episode was great but the second was weaker. (That is based on the plot as opposed to the acting).

    I feel like (second episode especially) they've rushed to get all the characters in place for the real adventure to begin.

    Adding scenes and characters in is an interesting choice too. I've not read either of the Books of Dust but I assume that where they're from those the same way Peter Jackson used the appendices to bulk out LOTR and The Hobbit movies.

    I've enjoyed it though, looking forward to what comes next

    Me and the boy have watched the first two and can't say I'm enjoying it much. I think he is but still doesn't have a clue what's going on. Neither do I for that matter. Will give it one more week ad see if it's our cup of tea. Neither of us are familiar with the source material at all, so in all honesty really didn't know what to expect.

    60 Days In

    A rather mental reality TV show with a bunch of civilians going under cover in a county jail. It does get quite interesting seeing how the different personalities handle it and there was one twat I hoped would get shanked. It is car crash TV for the most part and the follow up and aftermath episodes weren't really needed.

    7/10

    The Booth at the End (S2)

    This continues nicely from the first season and maintains the same tight pattern of Faustian deals in a diner. The mystery of the dealer remains but a little more light is shed, although it's still not clear who, or what he actually is. It manages to be quite sinister as well as uplifting and the simplistic format works well.

    8/10

    A colleague of mine confirmed that they added a lot from the books of Dust.

    That reminds me of the bit that wound me up - the post-episode "Coming next" showed loads of stuff quite deep into the story, rather than just an overview of the next episode. Loads of spoilers too :(

    Yeah I really like The Booth at The End. Very tight storytelling.
