Not sure if it has aired in the UK - two episodes from the finale here in the US.

Swamp Thing as a guilty pleasure. Dark / violent but silly.

Watchmen looks alright based on the first episode - it's a sequel in universe which I didn't expect, thought it would be a reboot sort of thing.

Just finished the first season of Dark (took me 2 night shifts) and started the 2nd today. Was really enjoying it but gone slightly weird in season 2.

Anyone watching Watchmen?

Not sure what I think of it. Hopefully it picks up a bit soon.

Same, it’s a fun watch but more style than substance at the moment. If the latest ep is more of an indicator of how much they’ll lean into the comics (which I thought was quite a lot in that ep) then can see it struggling for that mass/mainstream audience it probably needs for its budget

Friday at 9, probably on torrent as it's HBO. Hopefully good, Sir Ralph Ubercool

Yip - Family show, Kids LOVED it, I was a bit meh! World building first episode. effects were 90% great.
Nick Nolte Ugnaught character wasnt the best.
Bounty droid voiced by Taika Waititi was excellent and the End scene was great and set up for the series ahead.
