What Are You Watching Now? - 2020

Recommended Posts

What are you watching in 2020? (TV shows, documentaries, etc. There is a seperate thread for films).

 

I haven't watched anything yet today as I've been too exhausted, nor yesterday, but the most recent TV show episode I watched was from The Big Bang Theory season 12.

I watched episode 8 of The Dark Materials last night. It was the first TV program that I have watched in 2020.

I enjoyed the Dark Materials overall, although I felt it did flag a bit in places.  Loved Iorek though!

Anyone here watching Good Omens?  Are you liking it?  If not, WHY NOT?  ;) 

 

Agatha Christie's The Pale Horse is finally showing in the UK on BBC1 this Sunday, at 9pm.  I am looking forward to it.

Sounds like they've made quite a lot of changes to The Pale Horse, hope they don't mess it up too much!  I recorded it so haven't seen it yet, did you watch it?

Yes, I did.  Wasn't overkeen.  It's barely recognisable from the book, and they've messed up the main character.  Oh well.

Yep I noticed they seem to have changed him quite a lot, oh dear doesn't sound promising.  It's adapted by the same person who changed Dublin Murders beyond all recognition so I'm not surprised, I'll be shouting at the TV by the sound of it.

Well another travesty from the same adapter who basically re-wrote the Dublin Murders - whilst the first part of The Pale Horse was just about watchable, I watched the second part last night and was totally flummoxed, apart from being completely unrecognisable from the book - Ok some changes were fine - but I wasn't even sure what actually happened in the second part?

 

Spoiler

Was Mark (whose character was changed beyond all recognition) dead or what?

I didn't even bother to watch the second part, that's how unimpressed I was with the first.  (I did hear that the ending was incomprehensible!)  Let's hope it at least drives more people to read the book.

We saw the TV show Good Omens, which was quite good, I enjoyed it a lot. I'm about halfway through the original book.

Yes, it’s really good!

 

It reminds me of the original Star Wars films, and it’s very like the Clint Eastwood The Man With No Name movies. I think the actor really tries to sound just like Eastwood in The Mandalorian

^ It definitely has a western/gunslinger vibe to it.

Episode 4 of The Mandolorian. Another cracking story, and The Child/Baby Yoda wins many hearts again, especially during sipping broth, and when he waddles around. :D

Lucifer (S4,E1). 

Hmm, not bad, but not that great as the first 2 series. Sadly, you get it free on Amazon Prime :(. I think that I will buy the next episode, but it will have to be better.

Still okay, but nowhere as the 1st series.

I am currently watching the Mentalist series. I find it quite interesting. As a sherlock Fan, I did not expect that I would love other series like it but, Mentalist is dammn good!
