    We have "What are you listening to"? and "What are you reading"?.
    Let's try "What are you watching"?

    I just watched "The Social Dilemma" on Netflix.
    There was quite a bit of truth in it and maybe they were trying to make a serious effort to wake everyone up to what is happening with social media, fake news, and an addiction problem that could end us.

    Has anyone else watched this, and if so what do you think?
    I would recommend it as being worth watching!

    I watched it.
    It was timely and poignant.

    My only hope is that they exaggerated some for effect. Otherwise, this already scary world has become even creepier.

    I've watched the first three episodes of 'Pennyworth' and am loving it. A batman spin off that focuses on Alfred the butler as a young man working in security in London in the sixties and his first meeting with Thomas Wayne.

    'Brassic' is really well written, great characters, a lot more to it than you think there is going to be from the way it is sold.

    From the behavior of people that I have observed in the past several years, especially with cell phones, I'm afraid it was pretty accurate in regard to their mental state.

    I’ve had a fair bit of life going on recently and I’ve lacked the concentration and staying power to re-emerge myself into Homeland, Succession or Westworld 3.

    So, other than Queen’s Gambit, I’ve been ‘grazing’ nostalgically on favourite episodes of Star Trek TOS, Cosmos (Sagan) and reviewing some of Steve Jobs old interviews and presentations; his return to Apple co-host MacWorld session with Gill Amilio circa 1996 is a hoot, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

    What network is this on, or is it a streaming service? Which one?

    I bought it blu ray (I'm old school).

    You can watch it on amazon prime if you've got that. Don't know if you watched 'Gotham' another batman spin off - I loved the first series, felt the second went downhill and I gave up on the third. Pennyworth is made by the same team but it's more grown up.
