Would like to see Watchmen - the series. The film was a reasonable attempt to portray the comic books. Although Alan Moore disowned it completely.

I have Watchmen on DVD and agreed it's up there from the DC Comics to film efforts,
I wonder what more is included on the 'Ultimate' edition?.
Frank...made me do it.

Give me Marvel over DC any day. DC always seem to take themselves too seriously whereas Marvel has a warped sense of humour for the most part.

up there a top the DC Comics films list.
That's not that high a pile to climb though.

I enjoyed the film, but as always its not a patch on the original work. The TV series is looking good so far and I hope for the best.

I enjoyed Start Trek Discovery, and very much so the second series. Will be interesting to see where the Pike spin off goes.

It was better than Green Lantern. As a kid Green Lantern was one of my favourite series. Second after the Silver Surfer

Check out the book 'The Enterprise War' - effectively the run-up to the 2nd Discovery series which explains Spock's mental oddness and introduces elements that the series built on.

There is to be a new series with Picard, looking forward to that.

Fringe is probably my favourite from the last 20 years (except the last series which was a bit weak). The remake of Battlestar Gallactica is well worth watching as well.
