I read The Silmarillion as a kid. Although I can't remember a thing about it. I was briefly in to the Hobbit stuff. I had the Hobbit computer game and everything. It was one of those adventure games where you type stuff in eg "I approach the dragon" and the computer will reply "The dragon looks at you" and it goes on forever. Imagine giving that as a video game to a kid today, they'd assume it was a joke.
You did well reading Simarillion as a kid, i found it hard going even now. I remember trying to read it as a kid after loving the Hobbit and LOTR books but gave up fairly quickly (and probably just re-read the other books again).
I also had that Hobbit text based computer game, i think for my first ever ZX Spectrum. I remember it well because i always got stuck at Mirkwood Forest. I was only young but despite knowing the book plot really well i just couldn't seem to find the right words to get me through there and i just went round in circles Then before i could finish it i got my head turned by the high-end graphics of games such as Chuckie Egg and JetPack lol I still have my old speccy in the loft and the games... i wonder if it still works In fact i think i still have my old Amiga+ in the loft as well, maybe give Discworld and Monkey Island another go
CopShop - A conman intentionally gets himself arrested to get away from an Assassin, however the Assassin then also gets himself arrested... I didn't mind this. It's not the greatest story, or acting for that matter, but it doesn't take itself too seriously and has some fun. 6/10
In TV world, really loving Season 4 of WestWorld, they keep changing it up and doing it well. Also season 4 of What We Do In The Shadows has recently started in the US, still funny
