Episode 7 gave me flashbacks to working in a kitchen, it's also done in one single shot and it's amazing, really sets the stress levels high.

Yeah, that's the episode that made me add agonising in as a description. Yikes! Short episode, too, but all they need.

It is good if they wrap it up. Rather than keep dragging it out.

I checked out during S2. Felt like another show that succumbed to the streaming curse (no schedules, big budgets, make those eps as long as you want). Will finish it though.

The first episode of the third series of Locke and Keye is brilliant in its "And this is how the universe works here, remember this and we shall continue".

Three? Already? Gah. Better get on with the second.

Relatedly, I finally got round to finishing season 2 of For All Mankind. Great! Momentum into series 3, all good... Till that final (I think) episode. I'd be pressing the cancel button so hard it would be at risk of breaking. Shark jumped, reservation left, etc.

The above judgment of For All Mankind is brought to you partly by repeated American pronunciations of the word "Sojourner", which have affected my view.

Season 3 has definitely not been as good as the first two, but I’m still enjoying it. It does grate where characters are now noticeably less competent than they were before.

Agree, I think something short, and wrapped up nicely and definitively would be better than something dragged on and on and then rushed at the end.

Not sure which thread is best for this but 'Trainwreck' (the story of Woodstock 99) on Netflix was really compelling viewing - I sat through it all in one go.

I did not realise quite how out of control it got. Crazy scenes.

I had also forgotten how much Limp Bizkit suck.... and yet at the same time their music does exactly what it's intended to and gets people hyped up. Even though I know it's a bit shit really, when something like 'Rollin' comes on I can't help but turn it up louder and get psyched up.

She-Hulk is … a Disney show then. That’s about as much as I’m willing to share.

Unless you ask me whether I liked the first episode, at which point I’ll tell you that I was utterly fed up of the endless “quips”, didn’t find it much amusing and I certainly didn’t much like the look of the SheG-Hulk.

The Umbrella Academy continues to mix really interesting and exciting parts with a fair amount of dull and boring tripe (often multiple scenes of each within the same episode). It felt like S3 took a while to get going but I am enjoying it now.

Caught up on a bit of TV over the weekend.

The Sandman LOved this show, the cast was amazing. Loved the pace and the story. One question, what was the last episode? That felt like a bolt on.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 That was even more odd that the other 2 seasons. The ending did not sit right, jus a bit WTF moment. Shame really.

For the Sandman if you mean episode 11 then yes they released 10 episiodes in the series then released an 11th a few weeks later (I suspect as some trick to try and keep it at the top of the ratings for longer) , the two stories in episode 11 are both from individual comics

They have confirmed there will be an Umrella Academy Season 4 but thats where it will end - I did enjoy season 3 but yes a strange end that I suspect will be undone in some way near the start of Season 4

That makes sense, why episode 11 seemed different.

I've started watching Elementary, the New York-based Sherlock Holmes series, with Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu.

I'm only 5 episodes in and I'm pleasantly surprised, it's pretty compelling, JLM seems to be having a blast and the stories are pretty well put together too. As with a lot of this kind of stuff, there's enough clues in the episodes that you can usually work out whodunnit before the reveal, but half the fun is watching Sherlock explain his deductions and then be proved right anyway, so that's no bad thing.

After a rocky start, She-Hulk has turned into fun lighthearted romp of a show.
The CGI is atrocious though, She-Hulk wouldn't be out of place in a live rendered video game sequence.

Wait until you get to the "london" scenes that were clearly filmed in a New York side street. Red buses, check! Red Telephone boxes, check! Black cabs, check! Big Ben in the background? CHECK!

I read earlier that some parts of series 2 (I think) were actually filmed on location in London, so I'm curious to know if those are the scenes you're talking about ;)

Watched the first two episodes of The Rings of Power. Very slow paced and very beautifully shot. I think it will turn out to be an awesome.


She Hulk is great. Yes the CGI is not perfect, but for me it does not take away from it.

I like the 4th wall breaks and how it pokes fun at toxic fans and misogyny.

@gazChap we went into elementary with very low expectations and really only because there was nothing screaming at us to be watched and I know Jonny Lee miller is an entertaining scenery chewer.

We smashed all 7 seasons to the exclusion of everything else. There are low points but it always recovers and while they definitely don't need to make more I wish they could find a good reason to

-

I'm not going to create it but I'm wondering if an 'ongoing deluge of marvel TV and film on Disney+' thread might be needed... (Maybe also "all the cracking Korean stuff Netflix are buying up")

I Am Groot is an entertaining distraction marred only by Disney+ treating them as separate things rather than a series so a faff to follow. Lots of bonus points for fast-forwarding through the interminable marvel crawl.

She Hulk is great fun. Lots of bonus points for taking the piss out of the MCU throughout the 3 episodes we've seen so far, including irrelevant, irreverent post-credits scenes.

There's an Agent Coulson one-off that is also derogatory to the MCU.

I think it's fairly clear the show people get that it's all becoming very STFUorGTFO in many respects but the suits won't address it properly.

(I would say, cross-ref movies vis. Thor love and thunder, they tried the odd potshot there too but higher stakes so fewer risks)

Yeah, I agree. I raced through the latest series and really enjoyed it. R&M's new one was good, too, but it feels like they're trapped in increasing the stakes. I hope not.

Does anyone watched "Mo" on Netflix?

It's another dramedy created and starred by a comedian. As usual (e.g. Louie, Master of None, Feel Good), it's quite good and funny. Mo himself is extremely likeable, and playing (as we was irl) a palestinian "illegal" refugee makes for an interesting view. Also, it's set in texas, and anything other than NY or California is always an upside.

I think we’ve seen all of that. I don’t like the main guy most of the time but it’s quite compelling. Have you seen the other, similar show with the Gotham Garages people? And another kind of similar show but instead of rusty cars they get manky logs, and instead of shiny cars they make planks of wood?

Hmm, third episode was treading a lot of water though. It looks great but if it wants to keep viewers it needs to move this story along. I didn’t recognise the director of this episode and I don’t like what he did either. Too many daft slow mo shots. Hopefully he doesn’t make a return…

LoTR: The Rings of Power

After episode 3 I was thinking “some decent battle has got to happen next episode or this is gonna be real fucking dull.”

After episode 4 I was thinking “some decent battle has really got to happen next episode or this is gonna be real fucking boring.”

During episode 5 I was thinking “FUCKING DO SOMETHING. You’ve pissed away 5 hours of TV. House of the Dragon is taking a steaming piss on your face week after week.”

I don’t want it to be true, mainly because of all the unfair shit it’s been getting from ‘the internet’, but this is really squandering the shit loads of cash it got threw at it and arguably one of the most recognisable and best fantasy names.

It’s the cash that pisses me off too. All this money to animate some static backgrounds and bollocks? Where’s the money REALLY going? If I had a near infinite amount of cash I’d be doing some crazy shit with it and making the wildest TV anyone had ever seen. I’m just flabbergasted that someone thought 5 episodes of ponderous nothing was going to set the world on fire.

Yeah, episode 5 of the Dragons was TV for the hard of thinking. A lot of those scenes would have been smarter at half the length and without someone popping up to explain the subtle bit in case you missed it. Poor, and annoying.

Kleo is very funny if you're German. I've spent enough time in Germany to see that.

Unfortunately it fails flat to non -german senses of humour, at least mine (and Germans and I tend to make each other laugh). I can see *why* so many things are funny (including what I'm sure is an homage to Monty python's quest for the holy grail) but they just don't land.

Or maybe that constant internal analysis is ruining it for me.

But it's also "nice" to learn how shit that period of history was from a different perspective.
