What TV series are you watching at moment?

Recommended Posts

Tried the first episode of The Leftovers, at the recommendation of someone.

 

Got to the end credits and saw the name Damon Lindelof, and realised that I didn't need to see that name to know that it was a waste of a fucking hour of my life.

Season 2 is great, but yeah The Leftovers doesn't start well at all.

The Leftovers has to be one of the dumbest tv shows ever created, it's quite enjoyable though, and the acting is great.

S03 of the wire rewatch. It's taken some time to adjust to the time frame of the series. This time around I really appreciated season 2 much, much more.

 

Rewatching BrBa with a younger relative who didn't catch it at the time. We've been binge watching like mad and are now at the final season. It feels like such a weird way to watch the show, everything happens so fast. I still clearly remember the week long waits, the almost reverent feeling when a new episode was out, and of course the unbearable tension and waiting between seasons. It almost doesn't feel like the same show.

 

 

A lot of fun revisiting all the Saul moments, and good old Skyler-hating. Gus is such a strong character and easier to appreciate the second time around. I didn't realize what a murderous bastard Mike was, within his own sense of morals. Maybe because he's more laid back in BCS.

4 episodes into the Handmaids Tale & its a class act

 

Elizabeth Moss is superb & the tone is as nuanced as anything else lauded over from the last couple of decade's worth of US telly

 

Ann Dowd also shines as the uber-cunt midwife come gestapo-type, a face that beams love but that can switch to psychopathic in a heartbeat

Between THT and Leftovers, Ann Dowd is my new favorite Margo Martindale

rick and morty - i watched one episode and it's pretty close to unwatchable. doesn't look good, voice acting bad, jokes that i don't care about (cartoon marriage on the ropes etc). everyone and their spectrum brother seems to rave about this one (often a bad sign) and my fears were confirmed. it's probably one "you just have to get into" but I'm not going to do that when rewatching space ghost is better than most television. especially "indie" TV. or oh my god that new hulu category of "edgy animation" chinesus clist that's stupid.

 

You used to be such a nice boy.

 

 

Starting to go through the new MST3K on Netflix. I'm very much enjoying it so far. Having the new characters and voices was a bit off-putting at first, but I warmed up to it. It seems like the pace is faster with a lot more jokes crammed in.

Couldn't get into this either. The first episode was just limp dick for me. Did it get better after that?

 

I wanna watch Atlanta and Handmaid's Tale but I don't have cable or Hulu and I don't feel like hunting for sketchy streaming sites.

 

 

 

Watch 'Time Travelers.' If you don't like that one, you won't like any of them.

anyone watching Fargo S03? Hadn't even realized there's a new season until recently.

The new main bad guy is quite fantastic, but not feeling this season as strongly as season 2, so far..

david thewlis? it's all a little on the nose. there's something comforting about this show, the setting and fairy tale quality to it, but i can't shake the feeling that there's nothing to it beyond the style, which doesn't seem to be founded in any overarching purpose or aesthetic. watching legion felt similar. like, it's cool that a tv show is so visual, but why is this happening and why is a simplistic story being conveyed in such a convoluted and obscure way? the most recent ep for instance. why the peter and wolf thing at the beginning? i mean, i know why. but on a deeper level, what's the point? it won't carry over to the next episode. i feel like the showrunner is just trying to show us how visual and fluent he is in film language. well i get it dude, just stick to the story. the coens did.

if the Coens had to stretch a movie out over 10 hours or whatever they'd do more than just stick to the story, in fact, as it is they tend to cram in at least one totally unnecessary visual sequence per movie (not that I'm complaining, the bowling dream from lebowski is great for example).

yeah David Thewlis.. think I haven't seen anything else with him, enjoying all his stuff in Fargo..

but yeah, it's like someone keeps having these little ’creative ideas' and someone else goes 'heh neat, let's definitely put this in there too', and it's a bit unfocused and over indulged.. the set pieces kind of work in themselves, but the episodes almost fall apart.. odd! still, mostly enjoyable overall.

you've never seen anything with Thewlis in it? (he's in Lebowski for one). You need to check out Mike Leigh's Naked, Thewlis is amazing in that, great film.

nah, they're rarely as indulgent as this show. fargo in particular is a pretty restrained work, so is no country. lebowski is one of their loosest most indulgent movies. and when they go crazy, there always seems to be a reason. with this show it's just random elaborate sequences that serve no real purpose and don't really strengthen the show or feel consistent in any way. but that seems to be this guy's style, legion is the same. maybe worse actually.

i like the show though. it's consistently entertaining, high quality tv, but it's also totally empty.

I can't get enough of Berserk. There has been so much backlash over the new series because of the CG, but I don't think it looks bad at all. I'm glad to finally see the anime continue. I went back and watched the 1997 series and the 3 movies, and I can see why people would be upset in comparison, but I'm into it. Anyone else watching the new Berserk?
