This is a non-exhaustive list of things I’ve read, watched, seen or otherwise enjoyed.

Here are the lists for 2019 and 2020.

  • January
    • 31
      • Watched The Dig on Netflix F And I don't give a toss what the pedants say, it was wonderful, especially the unspoken dialogue and the strange, unacknowledged flashbacks.
    • 22
      • Started watching Le Bureau s05 on Apple TV T I’ll be bereft by the end of this season.
    • 20
      • Started watching Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime T Like, is there anyone else’s Jack Ryan?
    • 17
      • Watched Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom On Netflix F Very fine, and very stagey. Viola Davis is magnificent.
    • 15
      • Finished watching Le Bureau s04 on Apple TV T So good. So sad that I know s05 is the end.
    • 13
      • Started watching Lupin on Netflix T Very entertaining.
    • 10
      • Watched Midnight Sky on Netflix F Great spaceship, but otherwise? Meh.
    • 09
      • Finished watching Ethos on Netflix T Strangely affecting, even though nothing much happens. A second series will be good, I hope.
    • 09
      • Finished reading The Quest to Conserve Rare Breeds: Setting the Record Straight by Lawrence Alderson as pdf B Interesting and repetitive. Shaky on methane, IMHO.
    • 07
      • Started reading The Quest to Conserve Rare Breeds: Setting the Record Straight by Lawrence Alderson as pdf B Not thrilling, and interesting.
    • 06
      • Finished reading Corduroy by Adrian Bell B Lovely account of farming in Suffolk in the 1920s, not too romaticised.
    • 04
      • Started watching Bridgerton on Netflix T Well, rip my bodice; What have we here?
    • 02
      • Watched Bombshell on iTunes film F And very good it was too, although the beast still lives.
