Watched most of Goes Wrong Show series 2 this week. We are a fan of their stage shows, and the first series of this was good. First three episodes of series 2 were good too but episode 4 was rubbish, and ep 5 is a 'part 2' of that one so not sure if we'll bother with that. 🤣

This and @chellie’s on love of JT films makes me feel very old. Whaddya mean I am…!

Maybe some of us of a certain age get JT as we spent many wet Saturday mornings watching the silents of Buster Keaton, Harry Lloyd, The Keystone Cops, Charlie Chaplin, and Laurel and Hardy.
I was/am a fan of L&H, Abbott & Costello, and "Hooray for" Harry Lloyd. The others, not really.

Now, I never liked any of those. JT was more subtle which is why I enjoyed them.

Sod watching anything with subtitles, spend all your time reading instead of watching what's happening.
It is really easy and for hundreds of thousands of people in the uk, including me, subtitles are a must to be able to follow any programme.
The last 2 weeks has been a disaster for me and others with channel 4’s problems causing no subtitles at all on any of their channels. I’ve not been able to follow what is being said on Taskmaster, 24 hrs in police custody and gogglebox, or anything else. I know there has been uproar about British bake off, but I don’t watch that. But a crap programme of married at first sight that the wrong episode was played was replayed the next day. :mad::mad:

We started watching the American Office. I'm hoping it gets better after the first series. Michael Scott is not really that funny, he's just a straight-up mean-spirited arsehole so far. I'm hoping they do a bit of a rejig and character adjustment for series 2. 😕

The first series is a poor remake of the British version. After that they completely change it and it’s more of a traditional sitcom and not trying to be a parody of British cringe humour anymore. And it becomes brilliant. Michael Scott is a brilliant character and you’ll love him before too long.

I couldn’t get into it.
Love the Original

Just tuned in to Attenborough-'The Mating Game'....can't help being amazed at the standard of photography ( and how the hell they manage to get such stunning footage-see the opening passage of the Humpback Whales-absolutely stunning)(y)
Don't think him and his crews have ever made a bad series??

Wish my golf was as consistent:LOL:

Been watching and quite enjoying Sense8 on Netflix. A bit odd in parts, a fair bit of good action, a fair bit of adult content. Written and directed by the Wachowskis (of Matrix fame), which may explain some of the content. It scores high on IMDB and is worth a watch.
