Watched Sherlock on Amazon Prime.

First few seasons were great. Cumberbatch & Freeman were excellent in their respective roles. But the last season was kind of a drag. Never the less one engaging series. Wish the episodes were shorter. I usually watched it post dinner and often slept off mid-way.

Rating 4/5

My God, so many amazing shows that every evening is a treat !

1. First came Netflix's Drive To Survive Season 4. Excellent show. Not even completed that...

2. ....and comes Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber on Voot. This idea of drip-feeding episodes every Monday sucks, but it's an exceptional show that really has you engrossed as the season progresses. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (as Travis Kalanick) is A+, as are Kyle Chandler & Uma Thurman.

3. In the midst of all this, "The Dropout" popped up on my recommendations. It's the story of Elizabeth Holmes and the entire Theranos scam.

All three shows get 5 / 5 stars from me. Don't miss them, guys. Amanda Seyfried very convincingly plays Holmes. Episode 1 was still okay, but by episode 2's end, you are hooked. The intensity, ambition & focus are superbly portrayed.

This was pretty bad man. So much Bollywood drama. Especially when Will Buxton comes up. And the make up on Totos face. God.

You should watch this instead.



His earlier ones on silver wars and lewis vs seb were masterpieces.

Loved the drama , even if a lot of it was artificial. The Netflix show has gotten so many more people hooked onto F1. I have cousins & friends who want to come over to watch F1 at my place (they never did before).

Apparently, Drive to Survives Rotten Tomatoes audience score has gone down from 89% for Season 1 to 17% for Season 4

Watched Upload Season-2 on Amazon prime.

A light hearted feel good series with an interesting concept. All actors have done a good job. Short and crisp episodes. Sets the tone for next instalment nicely. Loved it

Rating: 4/5

Thanks for heads-up. Looks interesting. Added to my watchlist.

What are the other 4 Top Comedy series according to you? Hope Schitts Creek is one of them.

Watching “Space Force” these days during my free time.

Starring: Steve Carell, John Malkovich, Diana Silvers.

Its a light hearted comedy show and has some occasional funny moments every now and then.

Sharing one of the most Hilarious scene here that is quite relatable actually.

It's arguably the best comedy I've ever seen. Must have gone through it at least 8 times by now. In fact, I got a little worried when I couldn't spot it in Sony liv a couple of months back, till my wife told me its on Netflix. Phew!

If anyone is interested in shows dealing with search for alien life and exoplanets, there is a three part episode on YouTube called Life Beyond. Exceptional production value, fit for large screen viewing with good sound system.

Wow! Just wow! Having seen all the races of the 2021 season as they happened on TV, listened to most of the podcasts on those races and then seen D2S4, these 1 hour and 26 minutes were still supreme! What a lovely compilation, no BS, only the facts presented in an unbiased way. Thank you so much Red Liner for pointing this one out to me. Really, really enjoyed it.

Will definitely now watch the ones on the silver wars and the Seb & Lewis one too.

Amazing video, thanks for sharing! Watched it and loved it. But the point is: the Netflix show will attract a newer audience to F1, while your video is catered more toward the existing F1 fanatics. So, there's the difference.

Yes, agreed. I think the netflix show was created to cater specifically to the North American market and apparently it did its job.

This video however was shared from one F1 fanatic to another right here on TeamBHP glad you enjoyed it.

Essere Ferrari!
