Haven't enjoyed the seasons of The Great British Bakeoff as much since it channel hopped... I hope it's a better start tonight!

@RogerRoger No problem, man! I've watched couple more yesterday and I think it's the best looking Star Wars cartoon/animation I've seen so far.

Huntin' monsters erryday.

Watching Dark Crystal on Netflix. Loved the film when I was a kid, really hope it turns out OK. Not sure what today's generation of kids will make of it all.

Just watched the first Epsiode of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance after having rewatched the film earlier.

That was pretty darn good! That speech at the end by Simon Pegg (The Chamberlain) about the Skeksis was really well done! I knew he was good actor but he's good as a voice actor too, no half measures or anything!

I love the fact it's still mostly puppetry with only CGI for establishing backdrops and such. Plus the gelfling actually look pretty good in this, not a bit uncanny valley and off like they do in the film.

Really looking forward to watching the rest!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Glad you enjoyed it too! I think half the fun is trying to guess who is doing the voices. Love Mark Hamill in this!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @JohnnyShoulder

Quite shamefully, me and my partner watched all of it at the weekend

It is wonderfully done!

I'm also in the season 4 of Preacher, which I really didn't think would remain as entertaining as it has!

@KALofKRYPTON Nothing shameful about that at all - it was absolutely fantastic (in both senses of the word) and certainly not something I expected would ever get made in such lavish (and presumably costly) fashion with puppetry rather than CG at its core. I really hope there's a second season. Has anybody seen "Carnival Row" at all? It looks like it has an "Order 1886" mixed with "Penny Dreadful" vibe going on that I find quite appealing but the lead actors aren't exactly heavyweights and the reviews have been mixed to say the least.

@KALofKRYPTON Good to know, cheers!

Think I've got Season 3 of Preacher to go aswell. Not had Prime for awhile, but will get in it soon as I'm itching to see The Boys.

@LN78 I should think that there's enough scope to get at least another season out of TDC at least if it's received well enough - and I'm yet to see anyone I know say they didn't like it - and we're the target demographic without doubt!

@JohnnyShoulder I'm quite surprised with Preacher. I really thought it might run out of steam or stray from some of the comic's wackier bits - but, it's doing very well.

@KALofKRYPTON I think a second season will be purely contingent on the viewing numbers because as you say everybody seems to love it. Whether or not it's just too "niche" or reliant on people who are nostalgic for the original movie (that wasn't exactly a blockbuster) is the question. On the topic of "Preacher" am I right in saying it's wrapping up after this season? I didn't keep up with it having been really let down by Season One, which had very little in common with the narrative of the comics and seemed to be more of a prequel with some of the Quincannon plotline chucked in for good measure.

@LN78 Dark Crystal is very much one of those films people grew up with on video. As a technical and artistic undertaking, Age of Resistance really is superb. I think it'll do well enough. Probably well enough for adaptation of the follow up Labyrinth comics.

I think season 4 of Preacher is going to wrap it up yeah. More of the comic storyline shows up later after season 1 - which I think was a bit of a 'proof of concept' in way to open up the audience to how 'blasphemous' the rest would be.

@KALofKRYPTON I might give it a watch once the season is over,then, because I thought the cast (especially Gilgun) was really excellent and I've heard Pip Torrens as Starr is note perfect. The adaptation was such a long time in coming. I remember first hearing about it when Kevin Smith was involved and they were touting James Marsden, Robert Carlyle and Cameron Diaz as the leads. That must've been 20 years ago!

He's so fudging good as the scientist @JohnnyShoulder . Doesn't sound too different from his Joker voice, but it works

As LN78 said @KALofKRYPTON , nothing wrong with a viewing binge! It's what I'm gonna do when I get home from work!

@LN78 The casting is pretty spot on - absolutely no complaints from me. The quality of accents especially from such a regionally not-American cast is superb!
Yeah, no studio really wanted to touch it back then - not surprising given how very religious most of America seems to be.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy have fun! I haven't watched the making of documentary at the end, saving that . That's spoilered as it's pretty common internet knowledge, but people who don't frequent entertainment sites/haven't looked through the Netflix listing may not be aware of it. Nice surprise i thought.

@LN78 Give Preacher another go, I wasn't keen at first but it soon won me over. The second season has more stuff from the comic books in there. The cast is spot on.

I'm also watching Titans on Netflix. It feels very un-DC in some parts with some supernatural elements and more Marvel type super heroes. Which is a bit weird at first. It can also be quite violent in places and is not afraid to show a bit of blood and gore when the needs arise. Which is a good thing in my book.

@JohnnyShoulder I think I will. I'm going to be paying out for Amazon Prime (which I hate) when "The Expanse" comes out so I'll catch up with it then.
