    Are you excited about Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon?

    HBO have announced they are going ahead with a Game of Thrones sequel titled House of the Dragon. The new series will be based on George RR Martin's book Fire & Blood, about the rise of Targaryens. It seems the pilot for The Long Night prequel to Game of Thrones failed to impress and so HBO...

    What are your Oak Island theories?

    Worth remembering too, that back a few decades ago the guy who built the causeway actually used a massive digger to excavate big parts of the island down to some considerable depth...so I think would be interesting if they concentrated on areas he did not dig up.

    Did that not sink near Haiti? Or is that another ship?

    Binging Brooklyn Nine-Nine

    Not sure how I ended up not making any time to watch this. But now I'm hooked, it's like one of Rosa's guilty pleasures! Anyone else watch it? I'm only up to start of Season 5. Funny stuff.

    Anyone else watched Carnival Row?

    Managed to watch Amazon's Carnival Row over the last week. I was a bit wary as sometimes these alternative reality fantasy shows can be a bit lame, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's kinda steampunk horror and set in an alternative version of London and both Bloom and Cara Delevingne are...

    Will Joaquin Phoenix's Joker match up to Heath Ledger's?

    Todd Phillips directs Joaquin Phoenix in Warner Bros. Joker movie. This one takes a slightly different approach than previous movies, with Phoenix saying he was attracted to the more nuanced character. Phillips previously directed Borat and The Hangover movies. What do you think?

    Do we really need a reboot of The Matrix?

    I see Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are set to reprise their roles with Lana Wachowski directing. The Wachowskis are so hit and miss though. I mean Jupiter Ascending looked amazing and some great ideas in it, but was a bit of a mess in terms of plot and characters...

    In the summer do you watch more TV, less TV, or do your viewing habits stay the same?

    Less, we are quite far north so the difference in it getting dark is about 6 hours from summer to winter. So outside far later in the summer :-)

    What are your Oak Island theories?

    I think it is possible someone buried something there, certainly were privateers who operated on the east coast and did hide cargo sometimes. However, I'd imagine something less elaborate than a lot of the theories.

    Do we really need a reboot of The Matrix?

    There have been rumors of a reboot of The Matrix going around for a while. But with the Wachowskis seemingly happy for someone else to take reigns, could something be greenlit soon? More importantly, do we really need another movie set in that universe? The first movie was great and broke...
