What TV series are you watching at moment?

Recommended Posts

 

 

Watched the first few episodes of Disenchantment. It's decent. Pretty much the same thing as Futurama but set in fantasy.

It gets better as it goes on, much like Futurama in its first season (though it never quite hits Futurama’s peaks). The last trilogy of episodes really appear to be the show finding its own voice, so given that the second season is allegedly already in production I’m interested to see where it goes.

 

Also, the quicker they drop the Elfo-Bean replica of the Fry-Leela dynamic, the better. That shit is tired.

Sorry, I didn't see this before I posted.

Great to hear that a 2nd season is already in the works.

=D

Worth noting that I read that somewhere and I’m too lazy to verify it right now, but it’s a Groening joint so I highly doubt it’ll be a 1-and-gone, especially given the ending.

 

Agreed that Luci is the strongest character out of the gate and a contender to be this show’s Bender. I love Abbi too but she seemed to take a couple eps to get comfortable whereas Eric Andre was on point from the start. Of course, that could also come down to the writing, as Bean starts off as a bit of a blank slate. It’s a while before she goes from reacting to simply acting.

 

 

I was very disappointed initially when the show seemed to reset its premise 2 episodes in after being advertised as a road trip through a fantasy world. Wasn’t expecting to be tied to one location the entire season, but after the ending, I’m hoping we expand the world a bit and have a bit more varied structure.

I tried watching Fargo. I was into the first season, then after the 2nd-to-last episode, I realized I didn't want to watch the last episode at all because I don't like either of the main characters anymore.

 

So I'm not watching anything now.

Weird! Fargo is top notch A+

I think I just thought Lester's new gf/wife was really cute and sweet, if a little bubbly, and I was bummed that 1) Malvo killed her (I get it, he's ruthless, still sucks) and 2) Lester knew he would, so he sat in the car like a little bitch and sent her off to her doom. Fuck both those guys!

Apple has purchased the rights to the Foundation Trilogy and is working on a 10 episode season 1. Hopefully it won't suck, they do have shitloads of money to invest innit.

Sharp Objects is boring..............

Good sedative effects though.

 

I hate shows where the dead bodies are the only interesting part of the series.

 

her mom gets on my fuckin nerves

 

It's like True Detective season one but not good.

 

Does anything happen after episode 2?

How would you know if it's terrible if you've only seen 1/20th of it?

 

 

And I dunno... I really enjoyed Dark. My wife made me watch Orange Is The New Black... And that was tolerable. BoJack Horseman took a while to grow on me, but I found it fairly entertaining. The End Of The Fucking World is pretty cute. Sense8 isn't bad... And House Of Cards was good enough to keep me interested through all its released seasons.

 

=P

I'm watching sharp objects - it looks like bad tv directed well

It's actually good tv directed badly. Well, more the editing that's done badly (trying too hard to be arty, but it just gets in the way), and the overall structure of the show (the non-linear elements are annoying). The acting is great though, and the overall story is good, the town and characters are interesting.
I have a co-worker that I "watercooler" shows with and his problem with Sharp Objects is a perfect example of what's wrong with the show.

 

First he said "did you catch The Sharper Image?" which for those young/outside of US, that was a department store and catalogue that carried specialty gifts--dunno if it even exists anymore. Another week, he began with "hey did you see Sharper Things?"

After laughing really hard at his flubs, I realized that part of the reason he couldn't get the show name right was how nondescript and slippery everything is. It would have been a passable 90 minute psychodrama but it's positively torturous at 8 hours. Well it's over tonight at least.

Disenchantment was a slog. Although it did look like it might have started to find its stride in the second half. It's no Futurama, that's for sure.

 

Watching Castle Rock. Enjoying it, quite nice. The sixth episode was dope.

Disenchantment is pretty good, did take a while to get going, but comedy shows almost always do, especially animated ones. Still have a couple of episodes to go. Definitely not as good as Futurama, but has the potential to get up there, it has a much more cynical edge to it, which is nice.

Please don't suck . . . please don't suck . . . please don't be the Dark Tower fail. . . please don't be the Dark Tower fail. . .

 

Incidentally, this reminded me how much I love Michael Whelan's stuff (not even knowing it was him, just growing up reading Asimov, Niven, etc.):
