    I'm so glad the tv show "Hunted" is over...
    I only watched parts of some episodes, but it was a bit disturbing how easily someone could be tracked (if the show was real). It felt like some of it would have had to be faked just for entertainment (being able to access phones and CCTV cameras without a warrant... and broadcasting the footage publicly).

    One of the reasons why I think it was fake (or at least some of it), is that the Hunters in HQ wore the same clothes for 21 days. It suggests that those scenes were filmed all at once, to a script (or based on what was actually being done, but that couldn't legally be publicly shown).

    Started watching the Witcher Season 2, but eeeeh, it's not quite gripping me. The first season was a little hard to follow with the jumping around chronologically, but I managed to make my way through, but so far this second season.... I dunno, it's just not doing it for me.

    The boys season 3 though, DANG. Only watched the first two episodes so far, but I like it. Very enjoyable and creepy.

    Damn Channel ten is really pushing their new show "Brain Esteddford" - they must have paid Shaun Mccallif a lot of money (it is kinda weird having a 2-3 minute overlap with his ABC program, as they are both new programs, meaning that he must be currently working for both networks at the same time).
    They keep repeating it 4-5 times in the week... the first week they replaced a first-run program the following night, in addition to the later repeats over the next few days.
    And I don't quite get who the show is aimed at, because it is a quiz show with year 11 students, but I can't image that there would be too many high school aged students out there wanting to sit through an hour of school-level questions. Kids younger won't get the questions, and adults older may find the questions too much like a school exam and bring back the bad memories of being at school.
    Since it is being repeated so many times during the week, I end up sitting through segments of it, and I like a lot of the questions subjects... except the language ones, as they don't really give us (the audience) something learn-able, as most questions are about translating words that aren't even in our daily lives.

    Then there is the slap-stick humour, that kinda wastes Shaun's talent, as he seems to be playing to the contestants more than the audience, so much of what he does is eye-rolling, rather than amusingly funny.

    Between this and the constant commercials of their latest reality show in EVERY commercial break (I am not kidding or exaggerating here - in the last two weeks I have been able to channel surf between the four Network 10 channels during a commercial break and sometimes each one will start a commercial break within seconds of each other with the same "Masked Singer" advertisement). It is so bad that they don't even advertise any of their recent first-run movies... it's no wonder Network 10 has been a financial mess and is never competitive in the ratings, as they put all their advertising space into one or two of their in-house programs, and completely ignore all of their imported programming which then fails to attract viewers. A few weeks ago they had premiere screenings of the latest Rambo movie and "Fallen" movie (Angel is Fallen), and I had no idea they were on until after they had started... and yet Nine and Seven are advertising their first-run movies up to a week in advance... and even their re-runs get a good amount of advertising, like Seven plugging Harry Potter movies every week.

    (that was really annoying - those two previous posts of mine had no links or any formatting... it was all plain text, and yet, I couldn't post it all into one post without getting the 403 forbidden screen)

    Have seen the trailer for The Rings Of Power and looking at the kid with the wraith sword, I'm willing to wager that's Khamul the Easterling.
