I finished the 1st season of The Sopranos, just wow. It was pretty good, and it's amazing how they made that diabolical bitch Anthony has for a mother so likable at times, and a conniving cunt at others.
Bodyguard, Series 1.
9/10, excellent TV show. it's intense and so well made. Definitely worth a watch, and it's only 6 episodes long,
Just saw the first episode out of 15 of A Story of Film: An Odyssey which is a documentary series on the history of film making. So far I'm very intrigued, it started off slow and the narrator has a scottish accent that sounds smooth and calm in a way that lacks enthusiasm which made it feel a bit pretentious and artsy at first but as soon as the introduction was over and he starts getting into the history (this episode talks about the very early works of cinema, from the first motion pictures of the 1880s through the 1890s and up to the 20s) it hooked me. I can tell that this is going to be an in depth series and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of it.
The Iron Fist S2. Pretty good and i was a fan of the first season even with its faults. I liked the development of the characters and...obviously what happens at the end. Which is fucking nuts.
I liked it up until he pulled out the guns
Yeah i just did some research and apparently thats in the comics from an important character (i wont say much since its kinda spoilery).
Man, comics are always ruining my comic based content that I consume without any knowledge of the source material
Ozark, both seasons: 9/10
Not gonna lie, the premise of the show didn't sound like the most exciting thing ever, but after seeing Arrested Development I was kind of intrigued to see Jason Bateman in a serious role. I'm glad I decided to check it out cause it's actually a lot better than expected.
The setting and story of the show reminds me a lot of Breaking Bad and Fargo, but that's not to say it copies too much from other shows, it does enough to set itself apart. The cast is great and I absolutely love the family dynamics of the Byrdes, they're spot on and don't feel like a typical shallow caricature. The pacing is amazing, even though the episodes are a full hour long, it doesn't feel like there's a single minute wasted trying to stretch the runtime out. It's so dense, it feels as if this show does in 5 episodes what most others would stretch over a full season.
Some minor complaints that I do have is that the writing seems a bit too incredible at points, the amount of shit people get away with is way too high. That and the fact that season 2 started feeling almost formulaic after a while.
Oh yeah i forgot i watched Ozark S2 as well. It wasnt as exciting as the first but the character development and world building was amazing. The acting is again top notch and i bet Wendy will get a nom next year. Its a great show.
Knew nothing about this going in and decided to give it a shot. What a fun ride. I love sci fi and this ticked all the right boxes. The strange mix of future tech with 80s aesthetics (tiny monochrome CRTs, dot matrix printers, etc) was a really interesting choice. Made me think that in the final episode they were gonna reveal that they were still in a simulation after they left the drug trial. Wasn't expecting the ending to be so normal and happy, but I wasn't disappointed that it was. Jonah Hill and Emma Stone are fantastic leads, and I really liked Justin Theroux's character too. If you're into sci fi I highly recommend going in blind, I think you'll be pleased with it.
Finished Jack Ryan, it was good
Starting Chuck now. It seems like a good show to turn your brain off to late at night
Prison Break Season 1 (10/10)
First time ever watching. Holy shit that was tense.
Man in the High Castle Season 3 9.5/10
Very few shows hold a candle to the characters in this show. I love almost all of them because of how well the actors put into their performance - from the cold and calculated Chief Inspector Kido to the warm and peaceful Tagomi, you grow sympathetic toward each character good and bad. This season develops them even further yet still lays some good mystery for future seasons.
Very few shows are able to make you both love and hate the Nazis at the same time. With the character of Oberstgruppenführer John Smith especially becoming one of my all time favorite characters in TV. This actor does an amazing portrayal of a man conflicted in his position but also does whatever it takes to protect himself and his family. His development in this season especially was incredible to watch and felt truly genuine after the results of Season 2. This character is such a badass and I love him.
A few weak points - the subplot involving Nicole felt incredibly pointless to the point of pandering. Maybe something will develop from this but overall it felt shoehorned and padded in. Same goes for some scenes with Rob and Ed.
If you haven't seen this show I highly recommend it. Not only is it one of the most creative pieces of television I have seen, I am willing to bet it will go down as one of the best TV shows ever made.
The Dragon Prince. It has the humor of Last Airbender and the characters are good, takes a bit to get likable tho. Still, its good enough entertainment and at 24min run time it doesn't feel like a waste of time.
I can agree with you on that. I have a few more problems with it, like the very obvious framerate issue, and the fact that it just kind of ends? I don't know what the development of the show was like but the ending didn't even feel like a midseason finale much less a season finale. Especially when you compare it to TLA's book 1 ending, it's ridiculously outclassed. That being said, I'd really like to watch more.
Yeah the frame rate thing is so bizarre sometimes, it drives me crazy. It seems like Netflix is doing this on purpose, the story driven animation shows just ends mid way through the show.
Netflix isn't doing it on purpose, the animation studio is, and the fact they canc rank the action scenes to normal frame rate says this is entirely an aesthetic decision, not a logistic or technical one.
finally got around to finishing Westworld S2.
The first 5 episodes were a complete dumpster fire and made me stop watching until fairly recently. They tried to go in a new direction and just ended up stripping away everything that made me care for the show in the first place, including the characters. But I decided to finish it regardless and I'm pretty glad I did. After ep5 it's as if they remembered they were supposed to be making a season of Westworld and picked the plot of season one back up again. It was super messy and suffered a lot from intentionally withholding key information for the sake of a sick reveal, but I ened up enjoying it a fair amount. The ending was convoluted and quite cheesy at times but it left me fairly satisfied.
Like 7/10 I guess. Maybe less.
Pretty sure the low frame rate is a choice they made to make the characters feel more like they're 2D animated in stead of 3D (even though they obviously are 3D), but imo it's jarring and kind of puts me off a bit.
Bad news, Netflix cancelled Iron Fist
Just when it was starting not to suck.
I hope at least Misty and Coleen show up in the other Netflix shows
Misty is from Luke Cage so she'll show up as needed. And yeah Coleen is a good character and im sure anytime Danny is involved she'll be there. I hope. I mean she does have the iron fist now.
I was just watching the pilot of the Battlestar Galactica reboot. I had know knowledge of anything regarding this show, and halfway through I was confused about why humans in the distant future still didn't have a cure for cancer. So I tried to find the answer online and.... oh. I immediately lost all interest in continuing.
(Fucking ancient aliens that have the same culture as us because of collective unconsciousness. You have got to be kidding me with this shit.)
Which is already pretty broken considering one of the episodes revolves around usage of All Along the Watchtower.
Battlestar Galactica is pretty great until the final ~10 min or so of the series. Didn't change my enjoyment of it as a whole but it feels kinda insulting if you've stuck it out and watched it all until then.
I think I stuck with it until what's known in my group as The Boxing Episode. By then, it was obvious that there was no plan, and the writers were just making it up as they went.
anyone seen the haunting of hill house on netflix? how is it
summer camp island, really good show actually 8.7/10
