Its a shame Sense8 got cancelled (first I knew about it). The pacing was wrong for a TV show, with too much time elapsing between the good scenes. I suppose I liked it for the women, great variety of women there. I'd still give it a 7/10


Dark Matter S3 starts Friday. Thats another one I like for the women. I'm a sucker for a bitch that can do high kicks in tight pants. The android in it gets me horny. Enough of my wet dreams, just watch it.

Finished my umpteenth trip through the Archer universe.

Wife and I just finished White Collar. This one surprised me and was way better than I expected it to be. Characters were like able and written well enough (particularly Mozzie) for me to get through six seasons. They did use one trope two or three times, but it wasn't enough to be a deal breaker.

Midway through season two of F is for Family. Never knew who Bill Burr was until we watched season one when it came out. Thought it was solid, funny in parts, but not good enough to watch again. Now I want to go back - the show has gotten so much better in the second season. A bit like mixing All in the Family with Rosanne and a dash of Archer. If you grew up in the 70's (or the 80's for that fact), like Bill Burr or things that are funny you should check it out.

Would suggest starting at the beginning.

fargo season 3: excellent but not enjoying it as much as season 2. only criticism, i find all of the antagonist devoid of any likable characteristic.

Spoiler: show
reappearance of minor characters is interesting, e.g. mr. wrench. didn't occur to me until this season that he's one of the young boys hanzee approaches in season 2, last episode.

Looking forward to the finale. I wanna know if Yuri is alive.


american gods - I can't imagine how anyone who hasn't read the source material would have a flying fucking clue with what's going on, and the pacing is atrocious. I keep reading that it's 'faithful to the source material'. there's loads of material that's been neutered or severely distorted.

House of cards S5.

I think its stretching reality now. Without giving too much away, too many accidents and deaths. Any administration would be suspect that so many of its members suddenly go missing, have accidents or die (or in some cases all 3). Its a good watch to pass the time though.

Finished to watch the third season of Better Call Saul yesterday.

It started slowly and the whole tribulation with Chuck could've been resolved quicker (although the trial was a great episode) , but overall a good season and possibly the next one there will be the Saul we all know.

Riverdale on Netflix.

I've not seen dialog this overstuffed with one-liners since "Batman and Robin" which makes me feel like there's an intentional level of irony that's going over my head.

I only read a couple Archie comics when I was a kid, is this all just supposed to ride on the cognitive dissonance of wholesome Archie characters engaged in a sordid Twin Peaks-esque soap opera? Didn't Adult Swim already beat that horse to death more than a decade ago?

Although as someone who once read the Comics Curmudgeon regularly, there's something poetic that a comic he regularly joked must have been written by a computer is now a TV show literally designed by an AI algorithm.

As someone who grew up with Archie, I stopped watching Riverdale after the first episode. From what I have seen, it seems to be a typical teen drama using the names of Archie characters.

I watched Police Squad. Good stuff. Every bit as hilarious as Naked Gun and Airplane, if not more so. Disappointing that it was cancelled because you had to pay attention to the show to get the jokes.

Good call. I like Police Squad!
I read about the reasons for the cancellation. That's the kind of thing that explains why we had so many shit series over the years

I have two friends that told me they weren't into it (one going so far as to say "don't bother") which made me feel I would like it even more: Mission Accomplished. Hoping for a season 4... Mr. Wrench... such a character (pun intended).

Unfortunately I went to Youtube to see what you were talking about and result #1 was a show-ruining spoiler. :(

Don't worry about spoilers too much, a survey showed that knowing the ending of a story beforehand was more satisfying than not knowing. They did the survey by adding clear hints to the outcome of a novel into the text and asked the readers to rate it. The ones who got the version with the added hints rated the book higher.

Frank Herbert's Dune
This looks a little cheesy at times and the acting from William Hurt is awful too, but thankfully he's not in too much of this miniseries. Seems there's a couple of different blu-ray releases floating around. I enjoy this even if it doesn't look as good as Lynch's movie.

Might not matter with this show... if you know the vein of the series, you should know how it's going to end for almost every character.
