But is the second episode of the first series better than the first episode of the second series?
Im personally waiting for this to fill my screen.

Just watched a documentary on Netflix about the cheese rolling competition in Gloucester
It’s called we are the champions, give it a watch it’s brilliant

I didnt realise it’s a whole series just on the chilli pepper eating contest

A bit random this, but in 1993 the London revival of Cabaret was shown on TV, and is available to watch on YT. It's a much more earthy, gritty version than the glitzy film version starring Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, and which didn't do a lot for me. Alan Cumming stars as the Emcee, and what a captivating job he did/does!

If you have a quality ninety-odd minutes to allow yourself to be absorbed in the plot, give it a go.

Here's the YT link to the 1993 London Revival in full

and here's the (abridged) opening scene for the 1998 Broadway revival, with Alan Cumming, for which the production picked up a Tony Award.

Just finished the new (ish) season of Bosch, and my partner and I are watching The Undoing, but the next episode isn’t out until Monday. So I need two shoes (!); a me show and an us show.

Thinking of trying Lucifer, always wrote it off as a cheesy American chick flick type, but reviews are pretty good. Need something else gritty to really get into, The Wire esque (big ask I know).

Just watched the one about the cheese rolling.
I've long been of the opinion that those worm charmers are wrong uns' this programme did nothing to change that
