One gripe I have with ROP is that the most primitive race nearly all have bad Irish accents. It feels a bit racist to me - why can't they have russian or australian accents?
I haven't and most probably will not watch ROP

Would that not still be racist to them? They have an accent, so. If you look to be offended then you will be, at anything

It would still be racist, yes, but Iíd have no gripe with it
I haven't watched that program and most probably wont.
Have you watched Disney's Dumbo or Lion King? Both IMO  are blatantly racist.  Where the good for nothing crows and bottom feeding Hyenas have black American ghetto accents?
Perhaps in that Irish accent thing you refer to has more to do with ignorant stereotype, than being racist?  'White peoples' racism' doesn't quite meet the standard of racism.

The Andor series is on course to be the Star Wars output since Rogue One. Pacing is really good. Story is more human. The action is more realistic (allowing for futuristic weaponry etc). Problem undertones of a western storyline a la the original Star Wars.

Jesus the victim culture about nowadays is taking the piss. I've no love for rings of power in fact it's absolute shite but f**k me anyone insulted by them using Irish accents needs a boot in the hole. Sure they use scottish accents for the fat, beardy, greedy dwarves. Yorkshire accents for the muck savages of men who join the side of evil. The lying/snooby cnuts of elves speak with home counties accents. Literally anyone from any of those places could infer some form of slight or insult by the depiction of the characters using their accent.

The attempts at irish accents are decent, lenny henry and your wans mother excepted. There's a round faced girl from london has it off to a tee. Millions of people are on the brink of starvation in Africa and this is the shite that The Guardain gets in an uproar about.

I went back and watched Game of Thrones from the start again. I thought it was much better as a binge watch as you remembered the histories & back stories.  I realise now I didnt know what was going on some of the time! Peter Dinklage's Tyrion character is a lot more annoying when you are over exposed to him as well.

Trainwreck Woodstock 99 is worth a watch. Three part following W99. FFS it was bedlam. One person who was 14 at the time headed off to it. I can't imagine allowing my 14 year old off to a concert with 250 thousand at it.

There was a lot of hype around it and some of the characters which covered a lot of flaws. I think people that binged it enjoyed it more. I read the books so some of the characters didn't look right like Robert and Renly. Series 1 was excellent imho. Some brilliant moments in all series though which made both the show and books worth your time. Tyrion and Ayra are 2 fan favourites that I couldn't warm too.

House of the dragon is well laid out - more like the 1st few series of GOT.

I see thereís a new Adam Curtis documentary out from next Thursday really looking forward to it.

As Iím struck down with feckin Covid I had time to watch Hypernormalisation again. Itís a long and heavy watch but itís a serious piece of work that can inform a lot of whatís going on today.

As an example you tend to forget the amount of disaster movies that came out before 2001!!

The Watcher on Netflix is a pretty good show.

Started 'The Old Man' with Jeff Bridges. Looks promising.
