22512 What are you watching?
We've got a what are you listening to and what are you playing thread, so what are you lads watching?

I've just watched Starship Troopers, not realising it was directed by the same fella that directed RoboCop, and thought that the 'in-universe TV' scenes were uncannily familiar.

Quite enjoyed it though, though I think they could have done with a bit more subversion and a bit less cheese.

But the cheese is part of the subversion.

I don't think anyone has seen the sequels to Starship Troopers, including the people who made them.

Avoid, they completely miss the point.

This. You have to frame it in the context that the cheese is ripping on the teen dramas of the 90s like save by the bell and Beverly Hills, 90210, and to juxtapose that all of the adults are horrifically maimed and the society lacks any kind of empathy. It is a deliberate directorial decision.

I still think it's a shame that Denise Richards refused to do a topless scene.

There's only one sequel except they numbered it Starship Troopers 3 for some reason.
It's not as good as the first but it's still enjoyable. The focus is slightly different as it's more about religion and entertainment as a medium of control rather than the original purer fascism. You can see this as it missing the point or see it as just trying to do something fresh and more up to date than the original.

There are two threads of two sequels each. There are two film sequels, and two animated sequels that disregard the films (understandable given that by almost unanimous agreement ST2 was shit).

I'm working my way through There She Goes on iPlayer. It's created by Shaun Pye, one of the co-creators of Money Dust, and is based on his experiences of raising a daughter with severe learning difficulties. It's good, but not great.

Gor blimey, so they made another animated flick?
I can't remember anything outstanding about ST4 but nor can I call it bad.
But then, I very rarely watch stuff, perhaps my quality requirements are subpar.

I've been working my way through the Strike Back series because it is 100% easy watching, no thinking required, it's the pinnacle of lads tv and it's even better when you're high.

Expanse Jeff Bezos.jpg
225642256422564
All current series of The Expanse are now on Amazon Prime Video.

It's a very well put together Sci Fi space action drama type thing and it's really very good. Based on an excellent book series of the same name. It's relatively 'hard sci fi' at least as TV shows go, and the universe is very convincing and detailed. If you're into space shit you'll almost certainly like it. I've been a fan of the books for years, and the show doesn't let them down at all.

It seems like Bezos himself likes the show, or at least saw the merit in personally saving it from cancellation over on SyFy. Don't know if that helps or hinders the recommendation, but there you go.

Probably worth mentioning that the fans also absolutely bombarded Amazon with requests to save the show - even had a plane towing a banner message over their HQ. Come to think of it, I saw a similar stunt before Brexit so maybe plane banners are a secret ingredient to getting whatever you want.

That's fair, I'd actually forgotten about that. I wonder if people like him actually have time to watch telly or other normal human stuff.

Lily James is only five days younger than me but I still look about a decade older. I met her once but she didn't shag me either. Life's pretty terrible when you think about it too much.
