    Watched Hulu's "The Great" over the past few weeks. It is a comical take on the court of Peter III of Russia and the rise of his wife Catherine (the Great). Largely a-historical with the occasional little historical nugget, but overall rather entertaining. The cast fully commit to their caricatures with Nicholas Hoult's performance as a man-child-despot Peter III (incorrectly made the the son of Peter the Great) deserving special mention.

      Back in those glory days of British television though forward to 1970 there was another science fiction series that as a young kitten abducted my attention.

      A cult hit saturated in mutated adolescent hormones, in dire need of script doctoring and with a very obvious suspension of disbelief bypass.

      This show's main theme seemed to be about the struggle for survival of the most "stylish".

      Might as well unleash the link.... https://youtu.be/Q1XOacWCbuo

          I watched Season 1 of NOS4A2 , it has it's faults but ended up entertaining . I'm not usually into horror but this was a different take on vampires , I have now read the book so I'll give Season 2 a go to see what they do with it . On the comedy side , I binge watched Fran Drescher's The Nanny , apparently Ther Chaos Queen , Chaos Twins and Xiombarg Junior watched it when we were still living in Scotland......I must have been working....or inthe Moorcock Inn

            I still have Judge Dredd's first appearance in the comic 2000 AD issue 2, complete with the free gift . The Sylvester Stallone Dredd was a washout, I watched this version and this time Dredd NEVER removed his helmet , just like in the comics .
