Finished Blackbird last night on Apple TV.

Fantastic stuff. Really liked the way they didn’t go down the usual route of having a stereotypical psycho and actually got the viewer to have sympathy for the crazy mutton chops f**ker.

Such a well done show. And despite the grim subject matter they didn't rely on gratuitous scenes of violence which they easily could have.

Anyone going to bother with that new Lord of the Rings thing on Amazon? The trailer for it looks shite so I think I’ll give it a swerve based on that (may change my mind if it is recommended though).
The new Game of Thrones thing has started pretty decently I’d say though.

Slow first episode. Generally OK, visually impressive but slow as scene setting. Hobbiys are annoying as feck - all have shite Irish accents

Surprised it's got this far without some sort of offence crisis

Just watched the first one of both.

Let me start by saying that they’re not really my thing. However my missus and youngest son love them so eventually gave in and watched GOT and the LOTR and Hobbit films. While they’re not my usual cup of tea I got into them both and enjoyed them (once they explained who all the characters were and what it was all about.

First up, the dragon thing was good. Decent opening episode, storyline was easy to follow and there was enough there to get you involved from the start. Looks like it’ll have plenty of potential.

Next up, the LOTR thing. Two words - f**king boring. Barely a story, just dull waffle and uninteresting characters. Stupid f**king hobbits with Irish accents, Lenny f**king Henry. Random black characters and of course it’s the girls that are fearless and adventurous so plenty for the colonel to enjoy. A steaming pile of pc shite and a wasted hour of my life that I’ll never get back.

The worst part is that my missus just spent half hour ranting about it and at some point my youngest son will come down and I’ll have to listen to them both spending all afternoon listing all the inaccuracies and things they got wrong compared to the books.

In summary, Dragon thing is worth a go. LOTR thing is pants.

Rant over.

B Norman.

I'm not even taking a look at the LOTR thing, by all accounts it's unbearably wokey and once again the Welsh have been criminally overlooked considering how much Tolkien leaned on Welsh culture to create his stories.

I caught episode 2 of House of Dragons and that again is also leaning further into wokedom with its gaggle of righteous ladies, an inexplicably noble teenage girl swooping in to prevent the hapless men from warring, a random blonde-haired black man slipping home truths to the whiteys and every bloke being either evil, useless, blundering or weak.

Exactly who is behind all of this TV and movie wokery? When will it end?

Can you go off just the first episode?

Plenty of things can start slow and plentlynof things can dry up

That said, I’m watching the rings thing and the only thing I’m liking so far is the Elv bird

Are they hot though? Surely this is what these programs are about?

Agreed. Me and the Mrs enjoyed it. We just finished the first season of Dexter (i know it is old hat now) and i got into it. Can see it could run out of ideas in later seasons as a few on here have alluded too. But looking forward to season 2.

Dexter is one of my favourite TV series, series 4 is probably one of the best series of any programme I’ve watched. I’ll be honest it does run out of ideas a bit but still enjoyable and better than a lot of the crap that’s being churned out recently.

Dexter was good but they killed off the best villain in the first season if I remember.
