    Jurassic World : Camp Cretaceous excellent series for kids and a good entry point to the world of Jurassic Park. If Iím being honest, I rather enjoyed it.

    Challenger: The Final Flight is alright. There's not much "new" there if you've followed this, but the semi-cover-up angle from Rogers was new to me.

    I'm not sure Nurse Rached's backstory is a tale that needed to be told, but it's doing enough to keep me interested.

    Is it supposed to be set before or after Macmurphy?

    Right, I'm still thinking about it (only just finished it last night). It's definitely not a bad ending.

    Thinking back on it, there is a massive shift from the first season to the 2nd and 3rd, where Belfast was a major 'character' (if you like that term) in the first season, it took a back seat later on. All the actors are great, maybe there were too many characters? I don't get why Jim Burns hit the bottle in the end? And Anderson...his arm got messed up beyond belief and we never saw him again.

    Dark Crystal has been canned by Netflix, real shame I enjoyed the first season.

    What the fuck? The first season was great, well deserving of a second. Fucking Netflix.

    Is there any Netflix show aside from House of Cards that lasted for more than 3 seasons?

    @Mola_Ram
    I can only think of stranger things. When it comes back for the fourth season, that is.

    We enjoyed it but my daughter *loved* it so much so we also watched the 'making of' documentary. Its well worth a watch, if only to see how ahead of its time the first movie was and how reverential they were to it.

    Which, I suspect, is what did for them. Everything was lovingly hand crafted and physical where possible to the point that it was almost certainly more expensive than it was worth to them.

    I mean, its achingly gorgeous and the talent that went into making it is something to behold. But when you can plop out a warrior nun for next to nothing and have it do a bundle, who gives a fuck about craft, right?

    Yeah it5 would have cost a fucking fortune to make and I'm guessing it wouldn't have been hugely popular.

    Bloody shame. My daughter is both terrified of and loves it.

    I hope they make a feature length just to close the time line gap between the prequel and the first film.

    This is worst thing that has happened to me this year...and I lost my flat due to lockdown.
