Chernobyl, five part mini-series.
All I can say is; absolute master piece.

Definitely, I can't believe some of the stuff that occurred.

I mean, I knew of the Chernobyl accident when growing up but not the details and true scale of the damage / aftermath.

Absolute nightmare, shocking and disturbing

Just done with final episode of The Expanse - very interesting where this show is going... The show might be bigger then Stargate series (SG-1, Atlantis and Universe). I like it more for bit of punk feeling with belters and MA rating.

If you don't plan to watch series, watch this video at 1:24

That scene is epic gruesome

I've been watching the Orville, pretty much classic Star Trek the Next Generation with a hint of Seth Mcfarlane to it. A surprisingly mild amount of Seth, it is actually a pretty hardcore throwback to the classic Star Trek that is hard on the character-driven storytelling and very soft on the crudeness, but it does dare to dwell on controversial topics. I like it.

It is mostly controversial issues - one after another.

I liked it, some funny settings there...

Yes! One of my favourite death scenes in a long time!

I love the movie Chef, it's a feel-good foodie movie that I revisit regularly.

So to my delight I discovered that there is now a Netflix documentary series based on that movie called the Chef Show, with Favreau hosting. It is mostly about revisiting all the dishes that are shown in the movie and showing how to make them with other celebrities tagging along while they chat about movies and whatever they are happened to be up to. Episode 1 already gave me Permanent Salivating Syndrome.

(contrary to what IMDB would have you believe, there are in fact 8 episodes in season 1).
