Was watching SP earlier today. Got me thinking of my alltime favourite celebrity appearances.
1. Mel Gibson.
2. Kanye West.
3. Russell Crowe
4. Michael Jackson
5. .....? probably Lorde.
George Clooney as Stan's gay dog.

Cesar Millan impersonation was god tier, that one and Russell Crowe are always the first two that come to mind for me

Just watched the second episode of The Mandalorian, just as good as the first though it didn't really expand the story much. I don't know if 8 episodes in the first season will be enough!

Though it's not a surprise the baby like Yoda creature uses the force to help the Mandalorian when he is in danger.

Also the Mandalorian gets attacked they drop the bounty device so I think someone wants him dead most likely the people who hired him

Loving it! I have theories and most of them revolve around the Mandalorian hiding this kid to come in Rise of Skywalker. He’d be about 80 then and that would have him at pretty strong Jedi level.

The Walking Dead.

I don't really get that ending. Why would Dante give himself up? Siddiq hadn't figured anything out and wasn't suspecting that there was a spy within the community. So why on earth would he put himself at risk like that?

It just seems like the writers realized there isn't much going on in the episodes so they decided to throw up a twist just because..

I really enjoyed the latest series of the Toys That Made Us. I was expecting the My Little Pony episode to be really uncomfortable given the Brony culture, but it was actually incredibly sweet - I genuinely felt moved by it.

In general I find it's one of the better doco series out there. Never takes itself too seriously, but does a good job of covering each subject and touching on all the major points.

hehe. My avatar is that porno. There will never ever be a satisfying answer to me as to how the writers thought it would be a good idea to have an elderly wookie jacking off to porn in the family living room.

I actually forgot those other 2 star wars movies even existed with the little girl. I have this faint memory of seeing them when I was a kid.

I'll have to give that series a go, I see there was a transformers episode, I'm guessing it goes into detail how Hasbro bought the licence to diaclone and micro change toys and used them for the transformers toys, which explains why for example Ironhide and Ratchet toys(also the comics are like the toys) don't match their cartoon characters.

Is anyone watching Mr Robot?

My god, this season has been so good, it's hard to even contextualise how good it's been. The acting, writing, direction, cinematography, score.. everything.

I loved the way they did the most recent episode. The writing, the cinematography, the score especially during the psychology session scene. The setting was also quite good. Dimly lit room in the middle of a thunderstorm gave it that very dark feeling. It was excellent stuff. I couldn't look away, especially in the last act of the episode.

This season has been the best by far. It's a shame it's all coming to an end. But I guess it's best to end it when it's at its best rather than keep the show going for too long and the quality declining.

Not sure how I feel about the direction Mr. Robot is going. On the one hand, I can accept the latest revelation - it's what the show does, re-contextualize what we think we've been seeing retrospectively. This season has been so different in tone and approach from the rest of the show, it's similar in feel to season one but otherwise it's way more experimental than the rest. Weird for a show in it's last season.

White rose is a trauma case as well, so I'm guessing fantasy vs reality will be key to the ending.

Mandalorian is okay. Very cinematic. Disney + is fairly underwhelming - how often they update their library will determine whether I keep it long term.
