I just finished binge watching the first season of The boys.
Brillisnt series

Its about normal people who go superheroe hunting.
Super violent,graphic and rude. Give it a try.

Season 2 is out soon
This was decent. Looking forward to season 2 at the end of the month. To be released weekly apparently.

Bing watched it on the flight to Cambodia a lifetime ago. (January).

Very good. When absolute power and secrecy runs amok. Not the usual diatribes of anti-Trumps, anti-Boris, Brexit, the rich elites controlling the world, but a real disaster.

And the thousands who risked their lives to save hundreds of millions... aka. everyone in Eastern Europe.

Learned more about Cherynobl that I never knew before. The disaster and how it occurred was presented in dramatic, but easily understandable way.

Too bad I can’t say the same about the HBO Max streaming app. Crashes and freezes a lot. Especially at peak times.

Have I missed the post or did nobody recommend 'Dark'?
Stranger Things meets Twin Peaks meets whatever...
Personally, my favorite all time serie.

95% on Rotten Tomatoes https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/dark
8.8 on IMDB https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5753856/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0
