  1. My draft's on Monday, so I'll also be checking on any suggestions and recommendations!
  2. Anyway, just watch the new episode that dropped. Definitely weird that they felt the need to force the two stories into one episode. It's a streaming platform, why not have one episode be 10 minute animated one? It felt like they weren't confident people would continue on to the next episode if they suddenly switched over to animation.
  3. In Korea the first episode of Extraordinary Attorney Woo only got 0.9% viewership rating, which was understandable since it aired on a newish cable channel ENA. By the third episode it had reached 4%, which set the record for the highest ratings in ENA history. Week on week the ratings rose as word of mouth spread and its recent final episode hit 17.5%, which Wikipedia reckons is about 4.449 million Koreans. Meanwhile Netflix has the global streaming rights to the show and it's been either the first or second most watched 'Non-English' TV show on Netflix since it dropped. Netflix provide this 'hours viewed' info per week and it's kind of fascinating to see what people are watching. It's easily one of my favourite shows of the year, so I'm really happy to see it's been so well received globally.
  4. "In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theatre underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril." This trailer popped up before the film I was watching tonight and it's the first I'd seen of it. To me the trailer feels like Knives Out directed by Wes Anderson, and I really enjoyed it. Release date is 9th Sept in the UK, so not too far away either.
  5. Watched this in the cinema today. So much fun! It's a simple story, well told, well directed, and well acted. The action and fight scenes are clear and easy to follow. The cast have character, everyone on that train has something that makes them stand out, and there's a lot of humour (it landed well with me, but humour is subjective so others might not laugh as much as I did.) Just a good, fun, action movie.
  6. For those who enjoy Korean dramas, there's a currently airing show on Netflix that's quickly growing in popularity, Extraordinary Attorney Woo. "Brilliant attorney Woo Young-woo tackles challenges in the courtroom and beyond as a newbie at a top law firm and a woman on the autism spectrum." It's been a wonderful warm-hearted, feel good show so far.
  7. Damnit, movies these days just keep getting longer. There better be at least one interval or bladders will explode.
  8. It's kind of a lose / lose situation isn't it. Reading them in order can be frustrating the books jump between continents and rarely follow the same set of characters between books. While reading them out of order, can like you said, help you follow sets of characters, but can massively spoil developments in other books. Still though, I love the Malazan series and most of the spin off books.
  9. It's a good series, enjoy! 1 - The Blade Itself 2006 2 - Before They Are Hanged 2007 3 - Last Argument of Kings 2008 4 - Best Served Cold 2009 5 - The Heroes 2011 6 - Red Country 2012 7 - Sharp Ends (Short Story) 2016 8 - A Little Hatred 2019 9 - The Trouble With Peace 2020 10 - The Wisdom of Crowds 2021
  10. Mashle and Spy x Family are two of my current favourites. Mashle is an absurd action comedy about a boy who can defeat magic with his muscles. Spy x Family is a great family comedy series about a guy who recruits himself a fake wife and child to spy on a reclusive politician. Unbeknown to him the pretend wife he's found was also looking for a fake husband to better fit in at work, to hide the fact that she's actually a state sponsored assassin. And neither of them realise that the child he picked up at an orphanage to be his fake daughter is actually a telepath and is able to read their minds and knows all their secrets.
  11. Yeah, I read the series some years ago now, but remember really enjoying them at the time. Slightly pulpy, but with some fun characters and a good sci-fi setting.
