    Finished The Watcher, loved it.

    Almost done with Star Trek: Strange new worlds. I really like Pike, overall a great show so far.

        Doom Patrol is weird, but strangely compelling.

Yes, they don't like/trust each other.. but really. Everything is a **** reply... makes me not liking the characters at all. And the monsters can only hear ? Really ... that is so lame. Just throw a rock in opposite direction... and problem solved.

            But hey ..that is just me. And I like horror/sci-fi shows.. this is just so far meh.

            If the video game is like this... then I'll wait for $10 sale.
            i didn’t play the game but i’ve watched all the cutscenes on youtube. the acting in the game seems more natural… hard to explain. maybe the actors on the show need more time to jell.

                  The main stream media seems to be gushing over ep3 of TLoU making it hard not to get spoiled (even though technically I can't be spoiled since I've watched a play through of the game but it's been so long ago). 3 more weeks and I can sub to HBOMax and finish this out.

                    Don’t get too bummed. IMO, the series started out OK but has been going downhill each new episode. If they don’t pick it up next episode, I may be out.

                      Love the Columbo homage title credits. Episode 3 actually stole one episode of Columbo's "solves". I like it but want to love it. it's just missing a little something and can't put my finger on it. First episode is better than the next two.

                        Probably that the main protag is so annoying. Also it is too predictable. By 4th episode even I knew what the ending would be and how.

                          Wow last of us ep 3 made me sick. Good thing I can forward stuff. Whole episode wasted. Druckman strikes again.

                            Yeah, there was about 40 minutes that was just "skip". Basically a 30 minute episode. First 20, last 10 minutes. Rest of it was just a gay romance that did nothing to advance the story other than explain how they could get a car.

                              Last of Us - HBO

                              It didn’t make me sick. It was just pointless. Spending so much time fleshing out characters that don’t even live beyond the episode is group-think excess. Decisions like this leaves me very nervous that this series will result in a something beyond a sub 5/10 rating from me. If they don’t pick it up fast, I am not even going to finish it. In the game, the story is built around the relationship between Ellie and Joel. So far, that’s also been pitifully done. Wasting 3 episodes instead of driving a narrative forward is a clear sign of lack of clear direction. IMO, they got a long way to go to redeem this one. A couple of more spoilers-ish gripes below:


                              Bill, the survivalist, stands in the middle of the street with his sniper rifle to fend off raiders? How ridiculous was that?
                              I already mentioned spending so much time fleshing out relationships of two people that die by the end of the episode?
                              Contriving some sort of gracious ending for the characters that was so weak that the waste of the previous 40 minutes made me even more angry.
                              Joel’s emotionless reaction to their end means that they were meaningless to him? WTF?


                              The whole setup and characters were executed very poorly and the extremely long deviation from what is the real plot was a total waste. 2/10 episode. The only redeeming thing was the first 5 minutes where Bill set himself up so well post outbreak.

                              Comment


                                It could have been handled much better, in much less time. The previous flashbacks added to the world and story, this one really didn't.

                                And the letter needed a little more impact, and then use the time to start building some relationship between him and Ellie.
                                The first ep did more, with him protecting her from the soldier. More scenes of him forgiving himself for not saving his daughter and bonding with Ellie are needed. Not whatever this was with Bill that did nothing for the plot.

                                  While the pace of TLOU is much faster than TWD which got way too dragged out in 20 ep seasons over 10 years its not a good thing to kill characters you just spent the entire ep developing in the same ep. Even if its a somewhat newish idea. Its little more than they are trying to one up the idea of getting to know and like a character then kill them off concept that many shows have done in the last few years. Ill stick with the 9 eps as I like the main cast but not sure they are doing something here that TWD hasnt done already.

                                    I actually liked TWD more (the first 2 seasons about). EP3 was just pointless fluf , 99% of it.

                                    Bill goes with his sniper rifle standing in the MIDDLE of the open road to shoot raiders. He is not a good "survivalist "

                                    I see they already talking about Season 2 to match TLOU2 game. LOL. My the tempo this show is going.. I won't make the end of Season 1. But to each his own.

                                          Finished Evil (well, what's out there right now). It's a mixed bag, not bad per se but i really disliked that they didn't manage to tie at least _some_ loose ends.

                                            Poker Face episode 4 was fun.

                                            Also started watching "The Resort". Really can't go wrong with Cristin Miiloti (Palm Springs, Made for Love) and William Jackson Harper (The Good Place, Midsommar.)

                                              Lockwood and Co. Really targeted towards a YA audience and very British. Yes there was some ridiculous plot armor but YA audience so meh. Ending is sorta like 1892, good stopping point but obviously there's more. If that bothers you then wait to see if there's a season 2 announcement. It's sorta a magic light Harry Potter detective thing.

                                                    Watched the first season of From, not bad at all, sadly it stops in the middle of nowhere.

                                                    Started watching Your Honor. So far i like it a lot. Although i dunno how they will span the story over 2 seasons.

                                                      For clarification for anyone that might be interested... The Bear is a story about a world-class chef that quits his job to go back and run the family sandwich shop in Chicago after his brother dies and tries to fix the place. Lot of family drama, fighting inertia, etc. It's very good. I'm looking forward to season 2.

                                                          Watched the last season of The Orville. Also not bad. They definitely changed the tone of the show (to the better, if you ask me)

                                                            IMO they made it too serious and sort of depressing.

                                                              for me it was too much flat "comedy" at the start. Different blokes - different strokes, as always.

They do have the odd sequences tho usually just some badly choreographed action. I got reinterested in the show after seeing Last of Us.

                                                                              I liked it. I was into it. I was looking forward to watching the next episode. Similar to Squid Game but with a more outrageous concept.

                                                                              I don't think the games were as good as in season 1. I also didn't like how they would just jump to some of the games with the secondary characters without any real context.

                                                                              I thought the ending and reveal was a bit weak. I've seen that concept in a lot of movies and I never liked it. But, I guess there wasn't going to be a satisfactory explanation given the premise of the show.

                                                                              It season ends with a conclusion that could wrap up the series, but they also left open the possibility of a third season.
