Watched the first 3 episodes of '1883', as a Western fan, really enjoyed it so far.
Sam Elliott is excellent as the hard arse wagon train leader, but it's a great ensemble cast.

Prequal to Yellowstone. Not bad old style Western without too many cute bits and devoid of politcal correctness

How many sickening, overly-repetitive Tom Brady ads with that c-rap tune have you encountered so far on that channel?
They produce a new ad every 4 weeks and then proceed to smash the absolute *smile* out of it every 3 minutes before a new one gets airplay. Rinse and repeat …rinse and repeat.

At one stage that **** Sprite ad a few months ago must have got 200 airings a day.

Love it when Chris 'Boomer' Berman is on

I really liked 'Deadwood', and watched 'Hell On Wheels' earlier this year, this is similar, haven't watched any of 'Yellowstone'.
The character development in the first few episodes has been pretty good.

Yellowstone is a bit like a western Sopranos. I don't mind it.

Iview, starring Aaron Pederson
I'd recommend watching the film 'Mystery Road' first to get some of the background to the character but that doesn't seem to be available at the moment. The second film, 'Goldstone' isn't quite as good but is well worth a watch and is available on iView and will give a bit of background too.

Framed on SBS was mildly interesting but even though it only went foot 4 episodes it was 1 and a half too many, really dragged it out. About the theft of Picassos Weeping Woman painting from the National gallery of Victoria back in '86.

New show on Foxtel ‘Love Me’. Best Aussie thing in ages. Hugo Weaving is world class at his craft

Station Eleven on Stan.

Be warned, it's based on a 2014 novel about a global pandemic, so it might cut a bit close to the bone for some people right now. But it's surprisingly warm and human, despite having moments of great sadness and shock. I've seen the first five eps, there will be ten.

Superb - best thing I've seen this year. For me, better than the White Lotus and even Succession S03, even Mr Inbetween pharken.

I tried watching it, managed 5 episodes then stopped. Just cant get into it at all.
