Not Netflix but available online - A discovery of witches. I'm hooked. It was a bit slow to start but now...I've got my first vampire crush. Matthew Goode is well suited to the role.

Really looking forward to the Narnia series they have planned. Based on their comments it looks like they'll be doing Magicians Nephew and A Horse and His Boy too which will be awesome. As a Mum with a child named Caspian I am very excited to watch :lol:

The Sabrina series isn't a reboot exactly. It's based on the creepy comics instead of the normal ones like the original was. Also looking forward to watching it though :)

Might have to try Sabrina myself.

DH is watching a cooking show/doco all about fat.

Oh, and I'm listening to the good place podcast.  Australian accents are NOT ironic. they think Simone is one of the best ones. :/ eeek.

The  next season of Black Lightning - episode 1 dropped today. I really love this show! Lots of powerful women even though the title character's a man.

Ok, I haven't started Good Place s3 yet, so I haven't heard these accents first hand. But the thing is, there must be HUNDREDS of Aussies looking for acting work in Hollywood, surely it wouldn't have been hard to hire a couple of genuine Aussies if they needed the accents?

The accents are bad, so very bad. A couple have been ok, but mostly very bad. Maybe they had the one voice coach on set and that coach had no idea, or was from New Zealand, or something. They should have hired actual Australians.

Agree totally. That professor lady’s accent is so bad it is almost enough to put me off the show altogether.

I know.

Even  Americans on twitter are mentioning it.

For me, an Australian accent (even a proper one) amongst American does sound odd, but this is not that. This is some strange hybrid Of kiwi, occa broad Irwin and cockney.

I thought the same thing. Weird decision.

DH wants to watch the haunting at hill house, but I’m
Not good with scary things. They repeat on my like strong cucumber.

I’ve had enough wine tonight to enjoy Lucifer without cringing much, so I’ll watch that tonight, I’m quite behind.

I’m looking forward to Titans, but i fear for its future and the DC streaming channel snatching it back in Australia. Then I won’t be able to watch it without paying for yet another subscription.

I started the Hill house one but I was home alone and I was too scared after two minutes (nothing had happened). I think it’s going to be a watch-it-together-with-lights-on-and-an-escort-to-the-toilet type thing.

I finally got hooked into the Good Place. It took me a while!

I read that some have a theory Simone isn't really a person ... maybe that explains her terrible accent - Michael and Janet had terrible ones - on purpose. There are a few authentic Aussies there and I was managing fine, getting a lil kick out of it being Australian ... until Chidi bought Peeps at the supermarket tonight.

Ain't no Peeps at any supermarket I seen Down Under!

But what do I watch now?!?! *sigh* I hate being caught up on shows!

I just watched Bridget Jones baby. I wasnt a huge fan of Bridget Jones diary and avoid baby/children on screen so had never bothered watching it but I actually quite enjoyed it.

#23 Riotproof

Posted 20 October 2018 - 08:42 AM

I was shouting that at the screen too, expelli. Even then cashiers with their vests looked so American.

Mooguru, i really liked Bridget Jones Original but I haven’t seen the baby one. I should try it.

Watched about half of the first ep of the haunted house one. But it didn’t grab me. I should probably have watched until the end but I was tired.

The only "peeps" I've ever heard of are people and last time I checked my local coles and Woolies don't have an aisle dedicated to human trafficking.

I'm halfway through "Haunting of the hill house".
It's a must for horror fans.
It's so well done, I'm so excited. I like scary movies and shows but nothing decent hasn't been made in years.
I actually enjoy watching it later at night when everyone's in bed haha.
