Watched “A beautiful day in the neighbourhood “ about tv kids show host Fred Rogers. I enjoyed it to a degree but 2 things, Hanks played Rogers a bit like some sort of “idiot savant” and there was too much focus on the fictional character of the magazine interviewers relationship issues with his father.

Haven't seen the film but seems a fascinating character.

You've probably seen this or it would be in the film but this is good viewing. Ahead of his time re mental health.

I couldn't get past the first ten minutes of this one. I'd never seen the original show, but it just reminded me of all the shitty TV we watched in the 70s and 80s.

Ha, yeah, whilst Rogers (as JB put it was ahead of his time in one aspect ) his TV show itself looked very lame.

I have no recollection of his show being shown in Australia.

Explains why i never saw it. And after seeing the five minute recreation I saw Hanks do at the start of that film I was glad i didn't

The Report is an excellent look at the lies and cover-ups involved in the US's post-9/11 invasion of Iraq.

I cant begin to tell you how bad the film version of the tv show Fantasy Island is.
