Been watching Shadow and Bone... sokay.

Wandavision one episode at a time when our daughter will accept watching TV with us. I've been enjoying it.


Also started watching the Canadian comedy Kim's Convenience on Netflix. I like this one a lot. Looks like the brother is the guy heading up the new Legend of the 10 Rings Marvel movie.

Mare of Easttown on HBO. Well written and directed murder mystery. 2 more episodes to go and I am enjoying the characters and story. It certainly doesn’t make you want to live in a small town in Pennsylvania though as the amount of dysfunctional people in this series is high.

Watched the first 3 eps from the second season of Love Death Robots. Good stuff so far. Bummed the season is so short

Started watching Love Death and Robots and now I know why you gays are into it. Because of dicks flinging all around. Giant dicks, werewolf dicks, cartoon dicks. Dicks everywhere.

Btw I like some episodes but most of it is pretty boring stuff.

I'm 2 episodes in, and very much enjoying it so far. Interesting contrast, after we've recently watched through Watchmen (movie & series) and The Boys.

I especially like the very different takes on the Superman archetype. Contrasting The Utopian against Homelander is very cool.

Jupiter’s Legacy, to me at least, was really really good. I felt like it was a refreshing look at how a super hero story can be done without repetitive fighting every episode. The main problem I have with episodic super hero stuff is the cheesy choreographed fight scenes that are in every episode. The Arrow was the worst with those.

I loved the way that they played the theme of the code and changing times into the story. I love the way they played up not killing someone and then put a character in a no win situation where they had to kill. I also like that they have consequences that followed up that decision process.

I liked the way they wove the origin and back stories story into the current action.

The swerve at the end was great too.

I'm looking forward to what a season two would look like!

My problem with Jupiter’s Legacy was I saw the ending coming 4 episodes in. I knew who was going to be the bad guy before they showed the bad guy. They still had the prestige moment though as I didn’t expect last episode sacrifice.

Just finished The Nevers. Was ok'ish i'd say. Some nice scenes, but overall nothing to write home about.

Poldark (2015) season 4 - 9/10 Not sure what else I can say at this point but this show is still amazing. From production values to acting, it gets so many things right. George is such a great villain and there are also many likable characters. The core story put in place by the book author but the implementation is great. Every episode is such a rollercoaster of emotions. Plus in HD some of the coastal shots are great. I heard season 5 is not as good, so we'll see how it goes.

Watched a couple episodes of the new M.O.D.O.C.K. show on Hulu. Not bad for what it is.

Same, watched the first two eps. About what I expected. Funny.

Watched season 3 of Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous. Just as good, if not better, than the previous seasons.

Kill la Kill: 8/10. One of my favorite animes. Silly but hysterical.

Shadow and Bone: 7/10. Was all right. Little too woke.

Castlevania season 3: 7/10. More wokeness but overall good storyline.

Jupiter's Legacy. Finished it. Good show, although it drags on a bit sometimes.

I did have problems with the reveal at the end though. Several plot holes made it feel cheap and un-earned. If the uncle cloned Dark Star and this was all part of his plan, then why did the first episode show him battling Dark Star in his mind, and Dark Star legitimately overpowering him? There were no witnesses, it seems completely pointless to fake it. In the finale, why did he have to fight Skyfox? Did he somehow know that Utopian's wife would come in after him, and needed her as a witness? If so, why did he allow Skyfox to pummel him before she arrived? Also, why did he allow his daughter to get caught up in this stuff at the end? He could have just insisted that infiltrating Dark Star's mind would be easy and he didn't need the help... and why did he build Dark Star's mind to trap him in unless his daughter was there to hold the door open for him? The whole thing is dumb and contrived.

Really wish it was longer. Thought some episodes were better than others but didn't not like any of them. Great series!

not really, man

But yes, it's always so sad to know that there's no follow-up for the awesome shorts, would love to see more of most of em. That being said, it was a bit over the top brutal this time, wasn't it?

Finished Jupiters Legacy. As others already said, i actually really enjoyed it, the ending though was not good. It left a lot of questions unanswered and wasn't logical at all. That being said i'm curious if there'll be more seasons and if, how it will pan out.

Has anyone watched "Shadow and Bone" on Netflix in HDR?

This series seems to suffer from overly dark HDR content like it's a bad implementation or something, especially for night scenes where you can barely make out anything. Other series on Netflix don't have this problem.

Not only that, this series made me think I had some dead pixels, with some dark scenes having a random bright white pixel. Turned out to just be their shitty HDR implementation.

As for the series itself, it ****ing sucks. Stopped watching after the 6th episode. Not only is the dialogue that crappy old english dialect that seems thrown in for no reason other than "oh hey, we'll use this accent because it will artificially elevate our cultural level and make people think this is something intellectual", but the lines themselves are pretentious garbage after another. The characters are forgettable and makes you want to kill them because they suck so bad. The episodic plots are tired nonsensical tropes and filled with plotholes (oh look, this episode we'll focus on some spur of the moment bad ass heist that makes no logical sense from a planning or implementation perspective or even how the **** would they know some of the intricate details involved), and series itself doesn't seem to know what it wants to be (a love story, an action adventure, a mystery, wtf!) or tries to be everything at once (which it fails at).

Not recommended.

Though KAC might enjoy that gay scene in one of the episodes.

It builds and gets more interesting/engaging over time. By the time you get to the finale, it's kinda mindblowing.
