Stranger Things 2 was excellent. Properly enjoyed it, with only ep7 feeling unnecessary and rushed.

This was the last one we watched last night. Unfortunately I fell asleep. Joan's tells me I didn't miss much.

This is excellent news. Will be interesting to see if Simon pegg goes for the role of wee Hughie. I didn't enjoy the comics as much as preacher, seemed to lack soul, but this has the potential to be much bigger because of the superhero subject matter.

That episode of Mr. Robot was incredible. It was fun just trying to find where the hidden cuts are in the “one long continuous camera shot”. Mind bogglingly ambitious for a TV programme.

Sunny's one is only about ten minutes long, though.

The Deuce is excellent.

(If you don't know: it's David "The Wire / Treme" Simon's new shoe. Set in midtown NYC in the early 79s, following the fortunes of a number of prostitutes, pimps, bartenders, Mob bosses, and other associated low-lifes as the US legalised pornography.)

Like most of Simon's work, what it's really about is power: who has power over whom, how are they using it and to what end, and what will happen when the power shifts? As usual with Simon there's a hell of a lot of characters and not a great deal of exposition, so you need to watch fairly closely and be prepared that sometimes a character is going to do something that won't make sense for a while.

There's a hell of a lot of nudity but most of it is deeply unerotic. You know how GoT claimed it used nudity for plot development and never to titillate, and how that was bullshit? It's actually true of The Deuce.

Oh, it's much faster paced than Treme, thankfully. Much closer to The Wire in that respect. Some returning cast from The Wire too, including D'Angelo Barskdale (who has flipped sides and is a world-weary beatcop) and the elder Sobotka brother (who is a surly union man... again).

Also worthy of praise: the set and costume design. It's absolutely amazing.

I did like the first 2 episodes of The Deuce, but my wife thought it was way too unpleasant to keep watching. And I'd rather play games than to watch shows by myself so that show is indefinitely on hold.

Good to hear it gets off on the right foot.

I've heard the critics have given it a bit of a kicking.

Everything I've read has been glowing. Empire gave it four stars, for example.

I wonder if Gaywood's comment was tongue in cheek?

Or maybe laced with sarcasm.

zomg this

Incredibly impressive, and this is from a show that has remarkable cinematography in a run of the mill episode.

I see The Punisher drops in a week.

I'm up to date with Daredevil and J Jones but haven't watched anything like Luke Cage or the ensemble one (Defenders?).

Likely to be an issue?

JJ is great, Luke Cage is decent, Iron Fist is trash, the Defenders is poor.

The only good thing about Daredevil S2 was Punisher, so I'm looking forward to this.
