    Hey all

    I hope that you’re well. I know some of us may be self isolating during this crazy time so I wondered if you have any recommendations to share?

    I’ve just finished season one of Steven Kings Mr Mercedes, a TV show on Amazon Prime. I’d seen it there loads of times but never fancied it. We’ve loved it. About a grumpy retired detective chasing a serial killer. Really good honestly

    Last decent thing I saw was Animal Kingdom, series about bank robbers, and Ford vs Ferrari.

    Just finished Picard Season 1. What a great show, loved it! Bought Disney+ (for the kids ;) ) and have watched the first 3 episodes of The Mandalorian, also awesome in my opinion. We're only up to 3 in the UK unlike the US where its finished already

    Yeah, Animal Kingdom is amazing, not sure if they are going to do another season it, really hope they do.

    Just a thought but if people have any kind of VR set up, get beat saber, super hot and Thrill of the fight. Been playing for 2 and a half hours, a mix of all and I am sore, stiff and knackered. Best thing about my set up, its on the quest , so no wires and I am just learning about the dev mode on it.

    Nice one ZX, we've been playing that in our house too, only on PS4 but still great. We also like the zombie game Arizona Sunshine too. Takes getting used to but its ace once you're used to the controls

    Have a movie marathon on Netflix or download some good movies from uTorrent. As for the books, I am in to downloading free ebooks about health. The last I downloaded is the 90-Day Immune System Makeover.

    For games, the modern warfare warzone is decent and its free to play.
    If any of you have VR then Red matter is a good puzzle game, beat saber will get you moving and box vr will get you sweating like crazy, absolutley addicted to the game. Im lucky as I have a Quest so there are no wires.

    If you're on PC/Xbox give Quantum Break a go, it's pretty good, almost at the end of it.

    If you're on PS4- I recommend the Uncharted series but possibly start at UC2, I think if you play the first one it's going to put you off the series.
