Is anyone else watching this?

I hadn't realised it had started yet. I will get around to watching it, but in the meantime is it any good?

I enjoyed it.
There's an addition of a new character, and whilst I can totally understand their inclusion in the overall story, their particular story within the context of everything that's going on just seems a bit out of place, but this didn't detract from the overall enjoyment.
It's a slow burn, but there's another two episodes to come yet, so perhaps things will pick up a bit in those parts.

Finished She-Ra season 4 and it gets better towards the end, but by then it's doing too much too quick. There's simply too many characters who are all getting a line/mini segment here or there to set up something you'll see next year. And truth be told every time there is an interesting moment it cuts away to someone/somewhere else.

But what's really infuriating is a massive showdown was implied with the ending of season 3; it still hasn't happened by the end of season 4!

Finished watching Art of Crime a couple of weeks back. Shame it was only 6 episodes, I found it very interesting.

Then we found "Profilage" or Profiling Paris. Similar sort of concept, but with a ditzy psychologist. But only the first 2 seasons are available... Grrr!

Started Black Lightning on Netflix last night as a test of it before I cancelled my Netfix sub... and I'll be carrying on with it via other means; 4 episodes in and it's way more coherent and focused than that Titans load of crap!

Did anyone catch "The Bureau"?

It's French and sort of on Amazon Prime (you need to sign up for a trial to Sundance to catch seasons 3 & 4) but despite that I found it quite compelling lock-down viewing.

Oh and in other news Binky is getting on well. Was it 2013???

Pingu is back on Amazon Prime video.
This is a good thing. (8+)

The Sandman, on Netflix.
I haven't seen any of this yet, I'll be watching the first couple of episodes tonight, but so far the reviews are good, so this is a good sign.
I have all the graphic novels, I bought them as they were released years ago, so I've been a Sandman fan for as long as it's been around.
I've been awaiting this show with cautious optimism, I guess I'll make my own mind up later this evening.
