Caught up on Raised By Wolves, liking it so far. Takes a cartoonishly stark conflict - Atheists v Fundies! - and splinters it intriguingly under the lethal ambivalence of outer space. I hope it retains the sense of mystery it's cultivating as of episode 7, rather than trying and inevitably failing to give some half-assed "answers" (cf Scott's last two Alien films).

I'm reading mixed opinions on S4 of Fargo... hmm... do I give a shit? I'd like to go in somewhat fresh. I heard S3 was weird and weak from people that I learned later I shouldn't trust as it was fucking dope.

I ain't scurred Image Ditto on S3, thought it was fuckin rad from start to finish. Just enough signature Fargo (1996) elements - bumbling crooks, ever-intensifying shitstorms, terrifying/eccentric hitmen - while being its own thing with the information warfare theme, much like S2's gangland storyline. Planning to watch S4 blind as a bat as per usual.

Got caught up on Star Trek Lower Decks. It actually has found its footing and isn't just an all out silly comedy like the trailer made it to be. Lots of nice serious moments balance out the comedy. Plus that Q cameo was well done!

I'm currently re-watching Star Trek: Deep Space 9.

Season 1 was just as rough as I remembered, but I must admit that I'm enjoying season 2 MUCH more this time around. Maybe it's just me being familiar with the lore, story and characters, because I definitely don't remember enjoying it so much.

The Boys S2E7 I can't stop laughing at the way they ended this episode.

As for the season finale of Raised by Wolves, I can't decide with the direction this show went.
It'll probably take a 2nd viewing when I'm not over worked and struggling to stay awake so I can give it my full attention.

Still enjoying Boardwalk Empire towards the end of season 2.

Started the 2020 remake of Utopia last night. I don't know how to feel.

Chandler & Joey carried that show.

Fargo (current season) really took off (for me) when Timothy Olyphant appeared. And every other storyline too. Episode 3ish.

Season 2 is a lot better since they have an entire new upper level set for the space station to work with. Once I learned that happened between seasons, I noticed how much better the rest of the show really was compared to season 1.

Batman Beyond
Yeah I know a lot of season 2 on blu ray is upscales thanks to wear and tear on the original cells, but season 1 is looking amazing, and the show is better than I remember it being. Wayne being older than dirt and mentoring a high school teen is pretty interesting.

I heard it's a slow start. Still waiting until I can give it the time it deserves which hasn't happened yet... hopefully before the election.
