Nostalgia in lockdown has got the better of me. I don't do streaming, but I have a dvd player, and am midway through the entire run of The Good Wife. To be followed by Six Feet Under.

Mandaloron season 2 is coming October 20th, I know its not everyones cup of tea but Im looking forward to it. Its not easy to follow John Williams but the theme is great, by Ludwig Göransson who has also done the soundtrack for TENET.

Ah right, nearly through it then.
Please understand that my endorsement will mean that you will of course absolutely hate the second series, I apologise in advance for that.
The second season was excellent. Different and more developed. Not sure how they could resolve things into a 3rd season though without it getting a bit Scrappy Do.

The music was fantastic throughout. I understand why now that I've looked at the history of the comic book.

I've just finished watching Normal People, which is available on iPlayer. Adapted from Sally Rooney's novel, it didn't seem altogether promising - a clichéd coming of age story featuring two attractive young people who shag a lot. But it's so much better than that: the story repeatedly plays with those clichés and the two lead actors are utterly mesmerising. Recommended.

Yeah, I found it all a bit underwhelming. Started off thinking it was going to be a cracker then went a bit meh in my opinion. I would imagine I'll watch the second series, but it's not high up my list to be honest.

Phew, that's a relief.
Third series could be more difficult you're right. But you've potentially got the back story for Dad Hargreeves and Lila too.
Quite right about the music though, fabulous.

I loved Six Feet Under. I have favourite deaths.

And it had the best opening sequence and music. I didn't see all that many after the first series, so I'm really looking forward to winter evening viewing.
