- Caz is enjoying the break from everyone

- Caz recommends the book Atomic Habits by James Clear to help build routines and manage time.

- Rosario Dawson will star as Ashoka Tano.
- Timothy Olyphant is also on board and it’s reported he will wear the Boba Fett armour.
- Dan recently rewatched and really enjoyed The Last Jedi.
- Caz watched Katee Sackhoff in a film called 2036: Origin Unknown which kicks off an idea for an Unattested Film Club. So our first film will be 2036: Origin Unknown, it can be found on Netflix if you’d like to watch it and send us your thoughts. We’ll discuss it in a future show.
- Dan thinks he has a solution to how cinemas can work in the post COVID world. A return to drive in cinemas. Who knows where things will go after this.
- Both our heroes have been watching Killing Eve season 3 which is coming to a conclusion soon.
- Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is back and it’s as great as ever. Cutting through some deep issues with laughs on the way.
- Caz has gotten Dan into Gogglebox and he’s watching it as well. It’s surprisingly good.
- Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D has started again and Dan is cautiously optimistic this series might be quite good. The jury is out as there’s only been one episode so far.
- He’s also been watching Rick and Morty, Harley Quinn and Hunters from Amazon starring Al Pacino.
- Caz has a question, when did Al Pacino hit peak Pacino?
- Zack Snyder is returning to complete his version of Justice League. The mythical “Snyder Cut”. Paid for by HBO Max. There seems to be a lot different, including Darkseid. The version we saw was only 25% of his original movie.
