SHINING GIRLS (2022)

Excellent thriller series with … a twist.

The cast is fantastic, the pacing is perfect, the mystery is strange and intriguing without overcomplicating itself.

To say much more about it would quickly step into spoiler territory, and it’s definitely worth experiencing firsthand.

If you have any interest in unconventional procedurals, this one is highly recommended.

Another banger from AppleTV.

… On a related note, WHY has nobody cast Jamie Bell and Tom Holland alongside each other? They’d make perfect brothers, or older/younger versions of each other. The similarity is uncanny.

FOR ALL MANKIND (s01/02)

An alternate history drama where the Russians landed on the moon first, kicking off a prolonged, multi-generational space race of one-upmanship sustained by the wounded pride of the United States.

It’s bloody great.

Moreover, it’s a fascinating exploration of human motivations to greatness and high ambition as well as being a very grounded look at the hardships of space travel and what might have been but only for a few key moments of our own history going slightly one way or another.

Highly recommended.
