Godless has finally arrived on Netflix and it’s sooo good it’s making me forget I even have a phone. And The Punisher is doing his thing. A few decent looking movies have landed this month with a few more on the way next month – and woohoo they’re not all Christmas Movies!
There’s another series of Mindhunter coming, as well as Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and John-Claude Van Johnson – which is gonna be hilarious if the first episode was anything to go by.
We’re not quite at Christmas decoration stage, and there are a few things to catch up on or are about to start that can stave off the jingle bells for at least another week or two. I don’t want to watch someone else’s Christmas Miracle when I really need one myself. Seriously, does it get more expensive every year just to mess with me?
TV Land: Godless, Sick Note, Peaky Blinders
Things are ending, things are beginning. It’s not too shabby a month considering the Christmas adverts seem to have already started, Hallmark is eagerly celebrating Christmas a month early, and my wallet is starting to look a little thin. At least I have all these new shows to take me away from the horrors of Christmas spending. I also saw a trailer suggesting Britannia would be available this month on NowTV but I can’t find when anywhere. So keep your eyes peeled because it looks brilliant.

A town in La Belle, New Mexico is mysteriously made up of almost entirely women. And this is where Roy hides out from his old gang. The gang of Outlaws are hunting him down for robbing them during a train robbery and shooting off the bosses arm. Wherever they go death lies in their wake, and the Sheriff follows along behind.
Trying to lie low and let everyone but a few small friends believe him to be dead, Frank gets caught up in another man’s plan. And along the way a whole lot of truths come spilling out. Truths that require The Punisher’s personal brand of violence.
