What Have We Been Watching?
When we aren't making incredible AP software, we are watching Netflix, Amazon, Apple TV and all the other streaming services. Let's be honest, there isn't much else to do at the moment. We thought we would share with you what we're watching and what we think of it - no spoilers!
Martin Peirce - CEO - Ted Lasso - This is a feel good program about a UK football team being managed by a Kansas Football coach with no experience of soccer. Its a heart warming tale of good intentions and how team morale can achieve so much. I love it. I genuinely look forward to each new episode. Juno Temple is superb in it as well although it really is an ensemble cast.
Jenna Moore - Support Engineer - Start Trek Discovery - This sci-fi series follows the voyages of Starfleet on their quest to explore new planets and new life forms. Set 10 years before the events of "Star Trek: The Original Series," the show sees the Klingons waging war against the United Federation of Planets. Seat of your pants kinda stuff with good twists, in depth characters and great visuals.
Jordan Butler - Marketing Executive - The Walking Dead - I kept seeing memes online of how Coronavirus was going to be the start of The Walking Dead, so I wanted to watch it to pick up some tips. The thing I love most about watching a long series like this is seeing how the actors develop. For many of them, this was their first big breakthrough, so it is interesting to see how they are fairly robotic at the start, but then they become more competent actors as the series progresses. Anyway, I have decided Michonne is my favourite character - she is lethal with her katana.
John Witty - Business Manager - House of Cards -Missed it first time round, but now engrossed - even though it started being aired 7years ago, some of the underlying themes and story-lines bear an uncanny similarity to politics of today. Is it a case that the original novel and TV adaptation had incredible foresight in predicting the future, or that modern politicians are imitating the fictional theatrics?
Carl Spring - Project Engineer - Cobra Kai - Following the fallen enemy of Daniel Larusso, down on his luck and working hard to regain his glory days in Cobra Kai, Johnny Lawrence builds his new fighting fit gang of hard nuts while Larusso builds a new team of Miyagi-do students to ignite a new generation of Karate teen rivals. Glorious misunderstandings between the original now grown rivals, bring a nostalgia driven series only the 80s can ignite.
Stephen Carr - Head of Support - The Boys - Gratuitous Violence has replaced has replaced wit and character depth as the writers have clearly spent the last year or so congratulating themselves for the 1st season instead of doing any work. Anthony Starr as Homelander is fantastic and dominates every scene he's in though.
Nick Hedley-Harper - Technical Manager - Battlestar Galactica - A group of humans aboard a battleship, Battlestar Galactica, are forced to abandon their planet after being attacked by Cylons. They try to evade the Cylons while searching for their true home, Earth.Loved it when I watched it 5 years ago and is now streaming on Iplayer
