Yep agree enjoyed that, the guy must have a pair of coconuts to brazen it out so long.

Took a while to just get past Borat in my mind though, kept expecting him to burst into "veeerrry niiccceee" 

I do enjoy thrillers based on real life, but my concern is that this will be a pro-Israel propaganda piece.  What did others think?

The Witcher v Game of Thrones

I see a lot of reviews summing Netflix's The Witcher up as a half arsed Game of Thrones wannabe.  While I am not entirely pleased with the Netflix adaption compared to what I experienced in the game, I know the Witcher has quite a lot of lore around it going back to the original books, so is definitely not a GOT imitation.  I haven't seen GOT or know anything about its lore though so wondering if anyone here would care to give their view?

It was really good. Didn't feel like a propaganda piece to me, and Baron Cohen was excellent.

Will give it a go then.  I watched one called 'Angel' I think it was about an Egyptian Commander who leaked information to Israel.  It wasn't bad but when I got to the end, like with many Netflix productions, I was left wondering "Hmm OK, but what made this a story worth telling?"  Also, having watched Netflix telemovies on Sukarno and Subhas Bose, I have learned that while we may be led to believe otherwise, they are not always accurate depictions of history.

Just finished watching the first season of Star Trek:Picard.

Very different from any previous Star Trek series. Graphics and CGI fantastic.

Very good.

8/10

Not sure if I’ve posted this recommended in here but they’ve just released the third season of Dark.

It is a series on Netflix, in German but if you’re into science fiction or time travel, it’s well worth a watch. Not something that you can put on in the background & takes some time to put the pieces together but it’s brilliant. Highly recommend!
