An odd mix of old PBS "Ghostwriter" from my childhood, and then also so far season 1 of The Young Ones from the UK.

We got Ghostwriter in the uk too . I've watched bits on youtube.


Currently onto series 4 of Breaking Bad. I feel like it's been spoiled a bit by watching Better Call Saul finale first though.

I started watching Resident Alien.
some bits are too stupid, some bits are too much soap, but some bits are very funny, so I'll continue watching it. Halfway though season one now I am, of two seasons.

It comes from the SciFi channel, but It's in the collection of my cable provider, who once had ties with HBO but no more now that they became an independent streamer over here.

Love Death & Robots S3 - Always a great binge. A few fun shorts and one absolute winner. My favorites this season were Bad Traveling, Kill Team Kill & Jibaro.

I finished Season 1 yesterday. The two highlights:


1. it stars Linda Hamilton as a general of some secret organization!



 



2. it uses a fragment of The Breeders' No Aloha in an amazing way, I believe it's in episode 9, not sure anymore. Won't give details how or when, but it's something to do with Freezeheads
Apparently some of the creators is a big Breeders fan, according to this reddit post one of the characters often wears a Last Splash shirt. Hadn't noticed it or perhaps this is only during season 2.

Overall, it's a very enjoyable series, especially for one that comes from the scyfy channel. Some bits are hilarious.





Will probably start with season 2 tonight.
Right now I'm watching Davis Cup tennis, The Dutchies will beat the US , just like they did with the UK last night.






edit:
I thought Resident Alien was old, but season 2 is still running, according to imdb the 14th and last episode of season 2 will air this week. For now I can only watch up to episode 8, I hope they will add the remaining episodes too ...

cronenberg and michelle yeoh in the same scene i am not worthy lololol

later:

so... binged through season 3 of discovery, now watching season 4 and i still like it, but i have just one general complaint about it: too many fucking fee-fees and emotional speeches. i mean, i get it, it's for millennials and gen z kids, they're more touchy feely or something, but god damn, all the emoting gets tedious for me. i'm gonna have to start fast-forwarding through the speeches. maybe i'm part terran hahahahahaa.

--

also, so much fucking whispering, ffs. season 4 might be the one that sinks this ship for me

i was trying to watch bloomberg news but they have the queen of england's funeral on instead. nice looking gothic church though, and a few good tunes. the priest said some lies about god granting stuff and the epstein accomplice was in front row. his brother looked on the verge of tears when they sang that long live him. good spectacle though, i swear.

but cmon already i need to hear what's up with the money world... get back to the financial markets & the economy & so on. queen or not, we all have to eat...

Atlanta, the final season, just started so I’m on that. Watched one of two episodes.

The Bear, on Hulu, is pretty good. With the dude from Shameless — kid who played ‘Lip.

Sandman a little bit. It’s fine I guess? I dunno. I don’t think it’s great but it’s fine.

The Resort on Peacock. Pretty damn good so far.

I used my VPN to good effect and got Star Trek Lower Decks.

It is funny, and hectic, and kinetic, and I cannot watch it.

I am an old fart and hyperkinetic cartoons bore me shitless.

im having a lot of fun watching "the serpent queen", which is a fictionalized version of catherine de medici's life.

samantha morton is great in it. i mean she's always been a great actor, and here she blows them all out of the water. a highly entertaining performance, and the story is ok too. with some clever plot devices, but her performance really is the key to all here.

 


an evil you can root for, haahaahaaa

here is an article about it from a tabloid i despise: https://nypost.com/2022/09/12/samant...e-mob-fleabag/

Handmaid’s Tale has gone on FAR TOO LONG and lost all meaning, goddammit. It was such a good show for like 2 seasons. Now it’s just regurgitated plot points, wasted time, manufactured tension and missed opportunities topped with HORRENDOUS music cues. What the fuck

after the hulu warning got a month of netflix. it's been years.

so far i've sampled:

sandman: good fun, binged all this weekend.

barbarians (german): very good, will continue later

queens gambit: good, a bit depressing, have it on now for lunch

derry girls: hilarious, needs full attention, will watch more

persuasion: a funny fresh take on an old stuffy novel, needs full attention, will save for movie night

the witcher: rewatching from the start because i had forgotten. slower than i remembered, ok to have on while doing paperwork i guess.

russian doll s.2: okay? needs attention, will catch up later

I know you like the graphic novels, so Iím glad you like the show. Personally I thought it could have been better, but it wasnít bad by any means. Just a little something missing. Canít quite put my finger on it.

i don't remember the comics with rob's accuracy so i can't make a side to side comparison, but as a standalone tv show, it was quite good, the stories worked, and i enjoyed most of the cast.

if something was a problem for me was that the comics morpheus was spookier looking and more haggard, whereas the main actor here was too babyfaced for the part, sometimes to comical effect, but that's teevee lol.

My only beef with the sanndman TV show is that the surreal nature of the comics is not doable, even with the massive CGI and green screen work.

Also, the guy playing Sandman should at least be filmed so he appears 7 feet tall.

In the comics, the Endless' appearance changed depending on who they interacted with. For example, white people saw a white Morpheus, Africans saw an African Morpheus. Cats see a cat morpheus., etc. They could have done so much with that in the show, but you cannot confuse the ignorant racists I guess.

haha yeah there are limits to the medium and the audience/demographics and what tv can take.

they did that changing appearance briefly in hell with nada and in the cat animation. otherwise yeah it was just the pouty baby lmao.

They tried to use a weird elongated lens to recreate the look of Sam Keith’s art, but it didn’t quite work. Also, Keith didn’t draw all the stories the show touched on (I don’t think), but I do think the comic is pretty close to unfilmable. Still, they did OK, considering.
Didn’t watch the tacked-on cat episode. Love that comic story but the adaptation was not doing it for me
