I used to watch Nash Bridges. That show was great.
A few weeks ago I watched "Murder by the Book" and a handful of other episodes. (At least, I think that's what the episode was called.) I was overjoyed at how well they've aged. And, of course, Peter Falk was just perfect in that role.
Today I just finished Squid Game, which I started a few days ago after hearing so much hype about this miniseries (and even seeing the memes popping up earlier last year). I only gave it a try because in general I like South Korean thrillers like Oldboy, Snowpiercer or Memories of Murder a lot and this show looked quite similar.
And boy, how much I enjoyed it! I'm even somewhat ashamed I didn't watch it sooner.
It's a rather short miniseries of 9 episodes, each 50 minutes, so you kinda can regard it as a very long movie. If you've watched the before mentioned movies or similar «Killing Games» franchises such as Danganronpa or Battle Royale, you may know what to expect. Only that I liked Squid Game better!
It's dark, exciting, at times awfully sad and - above all - an interesting social commentary. I think I don't need to post anything else to avoid any spoilers.
Anyway, for me this gets a whopping 9 out of 10 marbles. Also, the 6th episode will absolutely destroy you.
Scrum I used to love that as a kid and Blue Thunder too. When I first got my guitar in the early 90s, Airwolf was one of the first tunes I learnt to play on it. All TV shows had such distinctive theme tunes back then. Get well soon

Murikov: Dear NGF bros, don't be surprised about the "Recent Threads" box below this shoutbox. I'll leave it there for testing purposes for a whole week, and if it works, we'll maybe enable it for good for this site.

pimsbury: Minecraft sucks...... you in.... whether you like it or not. Especially if you're playing survival mode. I spent a month on one map just trying to build a cool castle, but ended up building a giant rail system with huge bridges that linked up the mines

tuxedomarty: Welp, I'm doing something I never thought I would do in a million years. I am actually going to try out Minecraft for the first time ever, and it's all because of the TMNT stuff that was recently added as DLC.
