    Nice, this looks good.

    Unlike “The Haunting of Bly Manor”- tripe.

    Franklyn on Prime was pretty good.

    I’d no idea what was going on until the end.

    That’s pretty unusual for me.

    Part way through, well above average, the lead is excellent.

    Passed by this a few times, title put me off till I read the blurb

    Alienist is an archaic term for a psychiatrist or psychologist. ... Although currently not often used in common parlance, the term "alienist" is still employed in psychiatric hospitals to describe those mental health professionals who evaluate defendants to determine their competency to stand trial.

    The Trial Of The Chicago 7. Excellent, with fine performances from Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Rylance.

    I gave up several hours of my life watching the appalling, xenophobic, infantile Emily in Paris so you don’t have to.

    I hadn’t realised that I had seen Anya Taylor Joy previously in The Witch, the new mutants and Morgan. After queens gambit I appear to be becoming quite the fan and will be actively seeking out her previous work.

    She’s in Split and Glass. Also in Peaky Blinders.

    I love France, lived in Paris for a few years, watched the trailer and thought nah, not for me.

    Three episodes in and I'm enjoying Queen's Gambit. It's good to see the chess gets plenty of screentime and is (semi) believable, and it's quite an intriguing study of an obsessional character.

    On a different level, I finally got round to watching When They See Us and thought it was stunning. Essential viewing in the present circumstances.

    15;17 To Paris, $30m budget, Clint Eastwood directs.
    On so many levels it's possibly the worst film I've ever seen.

    Just Finished Silicon Valley. Not a bad episode across six series. Fantastic.

    Has anyone mentioned 'Hereditary' on Netflix? I thought it had a good creepy atmosphere - reminiscent of the Shining, in the slow close ups of the model rooms - that is hard to find in modern horror films.

    Guilty pleasure: 'Warrior Nun' on Netflix. A campy, slightly creepy update on the 'Buffy' theme, set in Spain. Corrupt priests? Yup. Evil apparitions? Yup. Nuns with martial arts skill? Yup.

    Enjoyed it. Lots of references to classic 60s/70s horror but found the ending disappointing.
