    Anyone watched “The Irishman”?

    Heard it goes for over 3 hours, don’t know if it worth investing the time

    His Dark Materials has been pretty good so far and very restrained for a HBO show. The CGI for the polar bear is among the best I've seen in recent years.

    Watched the first episode of the new Foxtel show Upright. Main character is pretty funny but falls into a lot of Australian cliches, mainly the teenage girl character whose every second word is 'f**k' or 'c**k' etc. But it has some promise.

    Yep, so far I have to agree. Only 3 eps in but the story is developing nicely and Kirsten continues to impress.

    I’m around half way through Ozark s.2 and am still enjoying all the crazy twists and turns, but it’s a bit too full on. As a person with short attention span it’s good, but it just comes off as unbelievable.

    Upright on Foxtel.

    Really enjoyable, some very funny moments. Also, several shots right to the feels.

    If you haven't seen it yet watch The Boys. I burnt through the whole season far to quickly.

    Really looking forward to The Outsider which starts on or about 13 January on Fox.
    I enjoyed the first half of the book immensely then when it turned all Stephen Kingy I thought it wasn't so great. TV show looks terrific.

    The upcoming gothic-looking version of A Christmas Carol with Guy Pearce looks very interesting:

    Another victim of the cynical gritty reboot trend.

    Hopefully this cynical shit that's pervaded modern television comes to an end soon.

    Edit: Nothing says 2019 like Scrooge being molested as a boy then later in life propositioning Bob Cratchit's black wife in exchange for money for Tiny Tim's surgery.

    Just finished upright, the Aussie show on Foxtel starring Tim Michin.

    Didn't know what I was getting into but ended up really enjoying it.

    Great road trip show that ends up hitting you with some great emotional punch.

    The young actress playing Meg is fantastic.

    As with most road trip stories, there's a bit of convenience and outlandishness bit in general it just a great, low investment time adventure.

    Between this and Mr inbetween, some good Aussie shows getting my attention recently.

    8/10

    Just finished Watchmen and the 2 seasons of fleabag.

    They were both really f**king good.

    I'd heard the hype about fleabag and thought it would disappoint, it did not. It's great.

    Watchmen was fantastic, everything worked and just wrote a really f**king compelling story.

    I also finished Silicon Valley, f**k I'm going to miss those characters, such a hoot.

    Finished Upright. Had a fair few average episodes but the last episode was lovely. Good series without being anything sensational.

    The Outsider may be a perfect example of how not everything should be a TV series. Excellent, fast-paced opener with several mysteries and interesting characters. Momentum is totally killed off in the second episode with the pacing slowing to a crawl and a bunch of unnecessary scenes. They are about halfway through the book I think already so I don't know where the next 8 episodes are gonna come from. Would probably have been better as a movie or a limited series with 3 or 4 episodes.

    I think there might be a few pretty upset people before long. I'm seeing so many people online make comparisons to The Night Of and True Detective. I can't wait to see what people say when it goes full Stephen King

    So far The Outsider has been great. Episode 3 was the best yet.
