"Cheer" on Netflix is a six part documentary about cheerleaders. It's awesome (truly!)

Agree on that, have found it really strong/entertaining again this year - I think it's because the story has been driven so far without her bipolar issues quite so much to the fore.

Yeah, we know she's a wack job. Don't need reminding of it in every story arc.

Seven Seconds
Netflix

Worth a watch. Good stuff if you like corrupt Narc cops mixed with social realism and characters that have more than one dimension. I’ve honestly not been able to predict anything that’s happened so far...

Covid-19 lockdown update - just watched 'The Test' on Prime.

A year and a half following the Aussie cricket team, felt a bit contrived in parts to show good blokeism above all but very enjoyable series.

Little known fact, I played against Justin Langer when he played at Old Millhillians so could have easily been a documentary featuring me rather than JL but tbf, he pushed on a bit better in his cricket career.

Agreed.

They did a very good job showing the personal side of the players, almost got me liking them!

It did reinforce what a great batsman Steve Smith is and what a difference he made in the Ashes.

Another recommendation to watch this.

Just finished watching Avenue 5, the recent Sky series with Hugh Laurie and Josh Gad (voice of Olaf, from Frozen).

It's a comedy series based on a space cruiser being stranded in space.  Naturally it has elements of Red Dwarf in it but, as you'd expect from Armando Ianucci, it has the deadpan style of humour of The Thick Of It within it too.  I enjoyed it far more than I expected to.  There are one or two genius comedic moments within it, most notably around the effects of gravity as the series develops.

Worth a watch, and I'm hoping that it returns for a second series at some point.  It's the sort of thing that you'll know whether you'll like it or not from the first episode, so not something that you'll have to spend a lot of time on if you're in the "or not" category.

Definitely in the ‘like’ demographic here. Some moments of pure unadulterated farce interspersed with some ‘I can’t believe they did that’ moments that have you laughing like a drain whilst simultaneously wondering if you should.

The dystopian setting for Brockmire's last season is pretty on point.

Season 2 is commissioned I believe, but this darned virus thing may delay it.
