Sigmund - "This week hasn't left much space for TV shows and movies I can talk about today. Instead I've been listening to a lot of music thanks to the introduction of Lossless and Spatial Audio to Apple Music. I've been revisiting fun moments from my previous career whilst also appreciating new mixes in Atmos from the likes of the Weekend, Taylor Swift, John Williams and Billie Eilish.
In an interesting fireside chat, my old MTV colleague Zane Lowe sits down with godfather of Chicago Rap No I.D. (Producer & Atmos Ambassador), Sylvia Massy (Producer, Mixer, Engineer), and Manny Marroquin (Producer) to discuss the evolution and future of sound and how the new format is going to deepen the connection between music artists and fans."

Jonathan - "This semi-autobiographical show from stand up Mae Martin slipped under a lot of people’s radars when it premiered on the UK’s Channel 4 in March of last year. Including, it seems, Channel 4 themselves who cancelled it. Luckily Netflix have stepped in to give it a second, and final, season which premiered last week.
It’s a wonderfully sweet, witty and heartfelt story about a comedian (Martin), a recovering addict who gets into an intense relationship with George (Charlotte Ritchie). Not only is she having to control her impulses, she’s having to deal with issues of gender, sexuality, depression, her career and being George’s first girlfriend. A fact she’s not keen to reveal to friends and family. Oh, and her mother is Lisa Kudrow."

James - "Being a huge fan of the original Mighty Ducks and sports movies in general, this series was always going to be a must-watch for me and it did not disappoint. Rather than going down the remake route, ‘Game Changers’ returns to the existing Mighty Ducks universe that fans of the original film are familiar with but does so in a way that makes it easy for newcomers to jump right in. Much like ‘Cobra Kai’ did with the ‘Karate Kid‘ series, the show plays around with a bit of role reversal and the Ducks are now the show’s villains. It was a bold direction to take the show in, but one that works well and introduces a new dynamic to a familiar underdog sports story set up. Lauren Graham is fantastic as the out-of-her-depth coach and Emilio Estevez slips right back into the role of grumpy Coach Bombay like it was yesterday. There’s plenty of laughs and feel-good moments for the whole family and some nice easter eggs and fan service for fans of the original films."
