    The Expanse is the best sci-fi on television since Battlestar Galactica (which you could argue was more Space Opera than Sci-Fi I suppose) - I've just finished reading the latest book in the series, Tiamat's Wrath, and it is heading to some strange and dark places...

    I've watched the first two episodes of Watchmen - so far I'm not massively sold on it and can't really see what the link to the original story is.

    There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief

    Watchmen is on Sky Atlantic (or available from any of the 'usual sources'), The Expanse is due to start it's next series on Amazon Prime in December.

    Ah, shame. Don't have any Sky or Amazon channels.

The make up somehow softened his features.

    Would love to see him in good Batman film.
    Brilliant film and a superb performance from Pheonix.
    The last hour was absolutley awesome, I loved how dark it was and finally a DC related movie that matches any of the Marvel stuff (which I feel has completely reached saturation point). I thought the nod to King of Comedy was fantastic, I wonder if thats what gave them the idea to put De Niro in there? Or maybe they thought about it after he'd been cast.

    Mandalorian starts next week, looks like it'll be getting watched illegally in the UK as Disney plus channel isnt being broadcast until 2020 over here I read.
    Trailers for it look very promising, directed by Jon Favreau whos work is good.

    Ditto jozza, would love to see him and Bats. Maybe with Edward Cullen as Bruce Wayne.
    Think he will surprise a lot of people.

    We've never really seen the detective side of Batman. We've never seen him be the World's greatest detective. The Adam West series was about the closest we've got to seeing that side of him.

    Matt Reeves has made some great films. The POA films were superb. I'm sure he'll treat the material with the respect it deserves.

    Like the look of it.

    I'm amazed this will be the first ever live action Star Wars tv series. Suppose it has to do with the cost of making it. They're specding eye watering sums of money on each of these episodes.

    They need to get the fans back on side for Episode 9 after the utter cinematic miscarriage that was Ep. 8 and, in part, Soylo.

    This will be the first Star Wars movie that I won't bother with at the cinema - the fatigue is that bad nowadays.
