The first episode of 'Better Call Saul' airs in a few days in the States ... the show is a prequel to Breaking bad but also apparently skips in time on occasions to post Breaking Bad and maybe even during the time span of Breaking Bad ... the show has the same creator - Vince Gilligan

Interview with Bob Odenkirk (Saul) re the show.

Further news on 'Better Call Saul' ... looks like the show might be a winner if the first episode is any sort of example.

Bob Odenkirk joins Andy Greenwald to discuss the premiere of 'Better Call Saul.'

'Fortitude' (airs on the ABC - starts this Sunday 15th)

A brand new drama that has received positive reviews (anything with Stanley Tucci in it is always worth a look)

Fortitude is a place like nowhere else on Earth.

Surrounded by the savage beauty of the polar landscape, its future sparkling with the promise of Arctic opportunity, wealth and discovery, Fortitude is one of the safest towns on earth.

There has never been a violent crime here. Until now.

Fargo season 2 has started ... plenty of good reviews and there's a number of familiar and notable actors such as Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Nick Offerman & Brad Garrett in this season (amongst a few others from season 1) On SBS later this month.

'Homeland' is back as well (ch10) and 'Narcos' is well worth a look - on Netflix.

Mr Robot is back (season 2)

Another show to keep an eye out for ... The Bridge (A Swedish/Danish production) The French/UK have done a remake of the show called The Tunnel but the first season of 'The Bridge' was very good. 

Billions is also quite a good show and well worth a look.  Paul Giamatti & Damian Lewis are superbly cast as high-powered foes.

When did Mr Robot S2 start Macca?

Also Saul is a great prequel, really enjoying it.

Supposedly a show called IT Crowd is hilarious, I have not yet seen it.

Mr Robot (s02) has just started airing in the US so it's probably on 'Presto' (streaming) again ... you'll have to google etc.  IT Crowd is great but the show finished up some time ago.  Better Call Saul - excellent show. 

I've found a lot of European drama worth watching for those who like their drama to be real-life/gritty ... I'll post up a summary of what I've come across down the track.

You know i can not explain what my tastes are using genre terms, some of the terms i do not even understand how they relate to the show. But then again i am a simpleton.

There's a miriad of stuff to watch these days ... something for everyone. 

There's lots of stuff that doesn't necessarily appeal  but each to their own.

I've been watching Preacher and Outcast which are both new shows based on comics. I feel like they're dragging out a bit. 

I watched the first few episodes of Outcast, from TWD people, and was very meh, too religion focused for my liking.

Haven't had a chance to have a look at Preacher but did get to meet Craig Rosenberg recently, who is a writer on the show. Great guy and doing very well over in the US (worked on Lost for a long time), as are many other Australian film/TV people at the moment!

I just re-watched the original The Office and the brilliance of this show just blows me away every time. Still Gervais' best work by a mile, and craps all over the American version.

There's a show called 'Ascension' on Netflix that has an interesting premise. Kennedy approves and launches and inter-generational spaceship in the 60's in secret, with the aim of preserving the human race in case of nuclear war. Now, 50 years later, the ship is populated by the children and grandchildren of the original crew, and has its own political system and society. The ship is rocked by its first ever murder and they are completely unequipped to investigate and handle the situation.

It sounds very interesting.

Do not be fooled. It is horrible. Stay well clear.

2 very disappointing shows are Vinyl & Roadies...some impressive people behind both (Jagger/Scorsese & Cameron Crowe) but total flops. How could they get it so wrong.

Not sure if there will ever be a good rock drama on the tele?????

Nashville is a good soap & guilty pleasure on Country music.

Okay - I am a man with a short attention span and commitment issues. I am devoted to Game of Thrones and that is pretty much it however we are going away for almost a month over September ( I got that right...)  - what series should I download and take with me ?

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
