    Finished watching, Ripley yesterday, which from episode 1 right through to the finale, was just an absolute arthouse feast of a series. Visual perfection matched to a Stella screenplay and a brief treat of a cameo with, John malkovich, was just so satisfyingly good. 10 out of 10 and one the best series productions I've enjoyed thoroughly for a very long time.

    Looking forward to them making the next season, as Patricia Highsmith wrote, 5 Ripley novels, season one from the first.

    Just finished watching Baby Reindeer - very good, although an uncomfortable watch at times.

    The premier of Top Gear Australia's relaunch is tomorrow on the 17th of May 2024.

    Hoping it's much better than the first attempt a decade ago that had, Shane Jacobson in the line up. Moog of MCM fame aka Blair Jocelyn, is part of the line up this time, which should be good.

    Fantastic series. I finished the entire season on one flight. It takes a lot of guts and self awareness to write, direct, and act in a show that exposes your deepest and darkest fears and insecurities.

    For older millenials that grew up watching the animated X-Men series in the 90's, X-Men 97 is a must watch for either fans of the original show or people that grew up reading the comics (particularly Age of Apocolypse). It's the single best thing that Marvel / Feige has released in the past year (and probably will be until Deadpool 3 comes out). I also enjoy that it ties into the current multi-verse story line without becoming to bogged down by it.

    I powered through all three seasons of "Godfather of Harlem," because a friend was auditioning for a part for the upcoming season (he didn't get it). The show could be described as "Boardwalk Empire" in Harlem with Forest Whitaker's "Bumpy" Johnson in place of Steve Buscemi's "Nucky Thompson" as the central mod-boss character. Interwoven with a lot of historical figures and events.

    The tourism board is spending a LOT of money getting "influencers" into HK to tell good stories.
