Just finished season 1 of The Handmaid´s Tale...pretty nasty show. My wife and I love it but it´s hard to watch.

I though this one was pretty entertaining.

It's only half hour episodes if that helps.

I've recently watched this one which I missed when it was first on:



As well as the original season of True Detective:



But for the time being I'm not watching the others since they're an anthology series with a new start each time. 

I'm currently watching these two, one old one I've never seen and another recent one I'd missed until now:





Both seem pretty great so far.

I never played this video game due to it being exclusive to Playstation (it's finally coming to PC this March). This first (feature length) episode was decent though.

Even accounting for historical and dramatic liberties, this was fucking good fun. Noisy and dirty and rough as fuck. Thomas Brodie-Sangster is brilliant as Malcolm McLaren, and Anson Boon's Johnny Rotten isn't far behind.

Thankfully, I'm definitely not an outlier on this one. Easily the best Daredevil season, imo, and possibly my favorite in this universe, along with Jessica Jones season 1. Fisk is definitely up there with Kilgrave as my two favorite villains, and the main trio of this series has grown on me a ton over time, and I also love most new characters they brought in for this season (except Dex, who I went back and forth on a lot.) The action was also obviously fantastic, and the ending fully delivered, despite the penultimate episode making me a tad nervous with its execution.

Season 9 of Blacklist. Even though one of the main characters is now dead, it´s still a great show.

They may as well have called this season "Iron Fist: Presented by people who hate Danny Rand". Well, it looks like I'm once again a bit of an outlier, because I liked this less than Season 1. It did have some good moments, especially from Colleen and Walker, but I never found Davos interesting before, and he certainly didn't get any better this season. And of course, the Meachams were as awful as ever, LOL

The big issue, though, is it feels like their response to the criticisms toward Danny after Season 1, wasn't to find a way to improve him, but instead to essentially take the biggest dump they possibly could on him and his character, and as someone who actually liked him before, his arc this season felt like a massive slap in the face. It honestly might be one of the worst cases I've seen of a show thoroughly taking a dump on its MC across a single season, with no real redemption arc in sight.

I really liked this one. It had some cheesy moments, and the humor definitely shows signs of some of the cringey shit Marvel has been doing lately (I'm really dreading She-Hulk, LMFAO), but I really enjoyed seeing Hawkeye's relationship with Kate evolve as the series went on, and while I've heard people say the latter in particular shines while the series namesake doesn't, I'd disagree, and say he has some of his best character moments throughout this series, and I think they did a really good job of building on his personal arc, while bringing Kate and other characters into it. I do seem to be in the minority, though, in that I've always found Hawkeye to be underrated, in that he may not be as flashy as some of the others, but I actually like how grounded he is, and how he constantly doubts himself (especially after certain events in Infinity War/Endgame). I find that far more relatable than a lot of the other characters, tbh.

I have a few shows in mind to watch soon since I'm finding myself in a lull for movies I want to see, but for now I'm still watching the odd episode of Cowboy Bebop here and there (I expect I may binge the rest one day soon), the odd episode of what must be my fourth, maybe even fifth re-watch of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and I've just started to re-watch the excellent Lilyhammer. 



This was reported to being removed from Netflix recently, but was saved at the last minute so I had to start watching it again. I didn't feel I had time to watch all three seasons again before it was supposed to disappear, which was disappointing. 

I'm also recently finished two Star Wars shows:



This is filler, but it's good filler, showing gaps in the story that explains so much like why Ahsoka suddenly went to using two lightsabres, the fate of Yaddle and when Kamino was deleted from the Jedi archives. 



Andor was good and interesting to see Star Wars without Jedi, but even so, it does also feel kinda weird to have Star Wars without Jedi. The show also suffers because we all know where Andor's story is going to end.

I've read the tragi-comic book this is based on and it's more tragedy than comic. Gritty as fuck.

80s sci-fi. Imagine the Martians from The War of The Worlds won. Vaguely remember it from when I was a kid, so decided to give it a go.

Well, apparently this image I used  for Season 1 was actually the Season 2 one along, lol

Either way, I liked this much more than Season 1. It did a nice job of building on things from that season, as well as ridding the bad taste that finale left by following up on things nicely and actually having a real fucking ending this time LOL Still not one of my favorites in this universe, since it does get repetitive at times, and I'm not too fond of some of the mainstay characters, but overall this season greatly improved it for me.
