    There's a few of these in that UNTOLD series, all pretty good.

    The most recent one is a cross between the real life Sopranos and Ice Hockey. Really good watch. Ice Hockey was fuxckin brutal btw and this team they put together thrived on it.

    Finally watched The Last Dance.

    Really enjoyed the opening few episodes but quickly became tedious (much like the game of basketball itself tbh, best of 7!!!! C'mon to *). Phenomenal talent in his sport and I know what people will say regarding his attitude but he came across as a total * and a bully. Even his long term team mates struggled to say nice things about him.

    Him sitting with his entourage in a separate bit of the changing room away from his team mates whilst players came in and he dished out match tickets to them like wee kids whilst telling them how lucky they were was embarassing. As I say extremely talented in his sport but a total *. Hands up, I'm not a major fan of American sports, long drawn out games and pointlessly dull but basketball seemed to be filled with a never ending array of odious characters. The trash talk, the disrespect shown to fellow players and even their own coaches was staggering at times. The game itself could be condensed in to 60 seconds bcos thats when all the action happens, the rest is turgid imo. Again best of 7!!! :32::56:

    Made my way through 'People Just Do Nothing' on Netflix recently. Funny as *. One of the best UK sitcoms I've seen in ages.

    Squid Game on Netflix is actually pretty good, if you don't mind subtitles (or speak Korean).

    Squid Game is one of the top shows i've seen on Netflix altogether - absolutely brilliant and is rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes right now as well.

    Would have preferred Gi-hun to get on the plane at the end and go to his daughter after all that happened but we've now been set up for a revenge mission in S2. Always knew Young-Soo was central to that game. He was way too happy to be there.

    If you like Ice Hockey you should watch Slapshot. Violent and funny as *.

    Midnight Mass is very good. Only 7 episodes, so I watched it over a couple of days there.

    Mike Flangan is just brilliant at crafting good horror stories that don’t rely on jump scares. The cast, yet again, is fantastic. As is the music.

    Better than Bly Manor but not as good as Hill House.

    Watched my first Untold show on Netflix, called Breaking Point. Mainly about Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick and American tennis. It was a good watch.

    The old GP footage and old interviews were really good but thought there might be a bit more about what’s happened to him after his accident.
    I find the secrecy around his condition a bit strange.
    The Mardy Fish documentary was excellent.

    Watching Squid Game just now and enjoying it. I have no issues with subtitles. Mrs can hack them so I’m watching myself which is sometimes better!

    Oldboy is one of the greatest movies ever made, a movie that’ll make you not mind subtitles.

    Think it's just a case of the family wanting privacy.
