Just finished The Crown’s Season 6 (and therefore the series). Because its been just three days since it’s release, I will put my review in spoilers.

They didn’t do Harry any favors with how he was portrayed, did they?

I was overall fine with how they showed the beginning of William & Kate’s relationship with each other itself but the idea of Kate’s mother pushing the relationship just seemed……odd?

Was anyone else wondering if they were going to have an episode with how the Queen had the Star Spangled Banner played outside Buckingham Palace after 9/11? I’m actually relieved that they didn’t put that it in there.

All the stuff with Mohamed Al-Fayed’s conspiracy theories about Diana & Dodi’s deaths and the investigation also just seemed odd in how they were presented, IMHO.

So……did Elizabeth II actually consider abdicating after Charles & Camila’s marriage? 🤔 😐

The discussion that Prince Philip & Queen Elizabeth have with each other at the end of the final episode was very sweet. 😊

I’m overall glad that they ended the series at the time that they did - I would not have liked for the series to show time during the “Waity Katie” fiasco - or some of the other stuff that’s happened since with Harry (and then also with Meghan).

I'm in the middle of watching Julia season 2 on MAX, having zoomed through season 1. She had quite a life, with things previously unknown to me; especially about the beginnings of WBGH. IMO, It's a great watch.

Found a goodie on Netflix called Fisk. It's an Australian comedy about a mid middle aged attorney whose recently lost both her husband and job.

A very easy binge watch at only 6 episodes per season. Not sure if/when a season 3 will be filmed.

And now I know so much more about probate law...

Well I am certainly enjoying November and December for the return of Slow Horses, Fargo & A Murder At the End of the World. All three series have kept me so entertained. Chilly nights were made for good mysteries and crime themed fare.

Have been watching an old detective series from the early 1970s called Streets of San Francisco. It stars a very young almost unrecognizable Michael Douglas. It’s on YouTube and can be seen for free.

The new docuseries WWII From the Front Lines on Netflix is really great. Some of the footage is incredible. I don’t watch many war documentaries but this one puts you right in the action. I’m also learning things about the civilians involved that I didn’t know.

So glad people are finding Fisk. It has been one of my favourite shows of the last two years. Kitty Flanagan is a fantastic stand up here in Australia. The casting is excellent.

If you want another quirky Australian show try Rosehaven. Don't think it is on Netflix but it might be on another streaming service.

The other one I would recommend which is on Netflix here in Australia but not sure if it is international is Utopia. You could say it is a The Office type show without the documentary style.

when the ex-husband turns up and wants the dog. The ad they make had genuine pathos and almost broke my heart. Then Roz had to edit it.

Snagged another free 3 month trial with Apple TV+ yesterday. Best Buy, just add it to your cart and then you get an email to redeem with Apple. I had tried in June and it told me I’d already used all my free trials. :lol: But I tried again yesterday and it worked. For new and qualified returning subscribers. I hadn’t subscribed since around May this year.

Memories!! I'd watch that as a kid sometimes with my mom.

Fisk is really good!

I’m watching Dr Death season 2 on Peacock. Exterior of Mandy Moore’s character’s apartment was filmed at my building in Brooklyn which is pretty cool. Even though I was already familiar with this story and am a physician, some of the scenes are shocking and tragic. This series is really well done.

I have a 14 day free trial for Disney+ so I can watch the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary specials and the Christmas special. Other than those, Hamilton, and the latest Indiana Jones movie, any 'must see' recommendations? Obviously nothing that's multi-season as I only have until 8 January, and although I'm a science fiction fan I don't need to see any more Star Wars.

That depends on your preferences. I love Disney+.

My list of recommendations:

The Shepherd
Die Hard :D
Boston Stranger
Red Tails
Moon Knight (MCU tv series)
Still Missing Morgan (doc)

I would still watch Andor even though it's "Star Wars" because it's very different from regular Star Wars and also very good.

The "Get Back" documentary on the Beatles is there. Here's a list of more good documentaries:


There is plenty of MCU stuff to watch. I loved Ms Marvel but I think it will not hit everyone the same way it hit me. Secret Invasion was crap and She-Hulk was pretty bad too. Wandavision was weird in all the best ways and it doesn't look like there will be a second season so that makes it stand-alone, right? :) The What If series is fun and each episode is stand-alone.

Also, you should get Hulu too and there are lots of movies and series on there. If there are movies you want to watch and haven't yet, they may be on there.

So you're saying the 35 seasons of Simpsons is out. ;)

I would recommend Only Murders in the Building. Three seasons at 10 episodes per season if you have the time. It was originally on Hulu but it's one of the shows they've added to Disney +

The Retirement Plan was a fun Nick Cage movie. Entertaining enough to pass the time.

Thanks for all the recommendation, particularly re the docos. I've added some of those to my watch list, along with Andor. Let's see how much I can get through.

Buzz - I think Die Hard is on every streaming platform here. It was heavily promoted on all the 'Christmas Movie' lists. :lol:

Passing on all things MCU - I haven't been able to get into most modern superhero films/series. I still think Superman is Christopher Reeve.
So you're saying the 35 seasons of Simpsons is out. ;)
:lol: I did remind Mr Bunny Hop that Simpsons was now only on Disney+ so if he wanted to catch up on the most recent ones this is his only chance.

ETA: Oh, Disney has Firefly. That will do nicely. I have it on DVD, but I'll take any excuse to watch Firefly.

I just finished Lessons in Chemistry on Apple TV and I really loved it! I found it very charming - Brie Larson is great in it.

Speaking of Only Murders in the Building - ABC is going to air the first season starting on January 2nd.

The three Doctor Who 60th Anniversary specials (the reason for the Disney+ trial) with David Tennant were very good. I'd stopped watching Doctor Who several years ago (realised it was no longer aimed at me, and didn't want to be that person who only watched to complain), but I really enjoyed these.

Also watched the Christmas special introducing Ncuti Gatwa as the new Doctor. It was fine too, but not so good I'll feel like I'm missing out by not seeing it in future.
