    Its good Star. But... just a word of 'warning'... i am a massive LOTR fan, watched the extended versions of the trilogy at least 10 times lol, i can recite half of it. And i must admit that the first couple of episodes of this new thing i was a bit 'meh'. But it gets better.

    The amazon site has a lot of details about who the characters are & the back story, which i advise looking at first to familiarise yourself, as its a bit confusing. Its set long before Mordor existed, or the Shire, or indeed Hobbits, its hundreds of yrs prior to what we're familiar with, & covers the 2nd age of Middle Earth - after Morgoth (Sauron's predecessor) has been defeated in a great war. It covers the re-emergence of evil into that world and the fight to stop it - so similar in some ways to LOTR but this is the prequel.

    There is a lot about the Valar.
    Its fab, but just dont get your hopes up too much i was a bit disappointed initially. I think because i was expecting to be more familiar with things & it seemed a bit slow to get going.

    Its called The Rings of Power. As Plas says its on Amazon Prime Streaming service. If you dont have it you can pay for it monthly without commitment so you dont need to commit to having it all year.

    No Overcome they're not. Its a different story, set about 300yrs before LOTR. It has Galadriel & Elrond as their much younger selves. It also has Elendil, Isildur & Durin, which is interesting. Galadriel is totally believable as her younger self, but i cant get on board with this Elrond being a younger version of Elrond in LOTR, the casting seems strange to me. At any rate its quite good if you like that sort of thing, which i do.

    I was unsure at first, the first couple of episodes are a bit disorienting, while you try to fathom who everyone is & what's going on, but i'm on episode 6 now & really into it

    No, it’s a whole new prequel series. Sorry to bust your bubble, Overcome!

    Oh I remember that show, Plas. I used to watch it too. Sometimes reruns are just so much fun to watch.

    I’ve enjoyed watching Community, Glow Up, Blown Away, The Great Pottery Throwdown, Worst Cooks in America, and Alex vs. America.

    I haven’t started a new show recently. I would like to watch through some of my older favorites. I really like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and would love to rewatch that this fall. It does have more magical elements, so I don’t suppose it’s very spiritual, but I enjoy it

    There is a four part documentary showing on our national broadcaster at the moment called "Muster Dogs."

    It shows a group of puppies being allocated to farmers who must train them over a period of a year, teaching them to follow orders as they round up sheep or cattle.

    It is so much a feel-good show for anyone who loves animals.

    I love watching sheep dogs and cattle dogs. They are so intelligent and lively.

    I particularly love watching a dog which has presence with a cow or sheep and can stare it down and make sure it goes where it's supposed to.

    I love their sassy courage.

    I doubt that Muster Dogs would be available yet on international channels as it's only just showing here, but if you get the chance, make sure you don't miss it.
    Just checked it out! The dogs are so cute! 4 episodes I see. How is the series going? Did you enjoy it?

    Heya!

    I just finished watching Hawkeye, and I was so surprised on how good it is! Dealing with the police during Christmas time is a difficult situation which is what was involved with the series, as well as family potentially not being home for Christmas.

    A relationally stressful situation but very tear-jerking in the end. The series is also about grieving. I found some good quotes with that series, so now I am a fan!

    Also they departed from the femme fatale look and went for androgynous and tomboy outfits, as well as employing a hearing-impaired and (pardon my language) disabled person as a main character, as well as incorporating a lot of ASL. So it's a very acknowledging/affirming series which breaks prejudices and boundaries.

    Watching whatever we can get on a single free to air channel, currently interstate Nightly News.

    The whole of our little island State is without fibre optic internet today. The cables were somehow cut about lunch time today. The only internet we have is limited 3g and 4g mobile.

    We've just gotten Season 4 of The Rookie airing here, so, painstakingly, I am waiting for each episode, one every week. Nothing like missing the ability to binge watch the whole season in 1-2 viewings.
