Watched almost the full first episode of season 1 of Another Life, but I couldn´t finish the episode. Bad acting, bad writing, and even worse CGI. I can´t see this one getting better, and I´ve decided to pass on watching the rest.

Finished season 3 of Daredevil, which I found really good, and started watching Iron Fist.

About halfway through Happy! and season 3 of Jessica Jones too.

Finished this week are the current season of Brooklyn 99 and the final season of iZombie.

I thought Brooklyn 99 wasn't as strong this season. Some good moments but overall it lacked something they older seasons had. 

I like iZombie's final season but it hasn't been as good since the first two seasons. As soon as the zombie's were 'out' it lost something IMO. 

With those clear I'll be working through the final season of Bates Motel at last (I did not really dig season 4 so much which is why I have dragged through it but season 5 seems promising). Then I might finally get on Orange is the New Black's final season.

What sucks the most is that it lulled me into a false sense of security. When my PC started making a funny noise, my first instinct was not to rule out one of the fans rather than a drive, so I immediately cleaned my computer Wednesday morning.

The noise completely stopped for the rest of that day and didn't reoccur on Thursday either. I assumed that I was correct about it being a cleaning issue by that point. 

Then early Thursday afternoon I suffered a full PC lock-up while playing Far Cry New Dawn. I knew it wasn't a normal random game freeze as I couldn't CTRL-ALT-DEL out of the game. The PC worked unresponsively for the rest of the session, than finally couldn't boot after the next restart. 

My old drive is now completely dead with no chance of rescuing any files. 

It's a shit happens situation but what's pissing me off the most right now is that now I've made the plunge to Windows 10, the Witcher 3 no longer runs smoothly! I've reapplied all the tweaks that allowed flawless 60FPS on Windows 7 even in Novigrad, but on Windows 10 the microstutter won't go away.

^That sucks, about the hard drive. And yeah, I find with Steam especially, if I'm downloading something it really slows down my internet, and makes it tough to watch videos on any site, tbh. Steam seems to use up a ton of bandwidth, when downloading or updating games.

I'm half way through Stranger Things 3 now. I might have finished it by now but I've had to be doing a lot of downloading to reinstall my games after my hard drive failure. Can't get a good picture on Netflix while downloading. It's been pretty great so far though.

^ I managed to get in two episodes last night. I expect I'll watch more today. 

Also finished season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead yesterday. This one really felt like a transitional seasons all the way through. It doesn't feel like the same show anymore come it's conclusion.

I binged Stranger Things 3 in one day, as expected. Thankfully, it avoided the letdown and ended up being pretty awesome, and extremely wild and fun, once again. I'm very interested to see where they go with season 4, but I won't bring up any spoilers, yet. Suffice to say, the finale of this season is probably the biggest moment of the series, so far.

I still have like a million shows to try on Netflix, which I just haven't gotten around to yet. I will actually be watching a show next month, for the first time since the end of Game of Thrones, that being Stranger Things 3, on July 4th. I loved the first two seasons, so hopefully they can avoid a letdown, but at this point, I can't trust any show to not fall apart, ever again.

Just finished the two available seasons of Black Spot. Loved the show, really hope it gets a third season cause they really can't leave it where it leaves off in S2. The finale just raised far more questions than ever before.

I've started watching a French series called Black Spot on Netflix. Quite intriguing so far, it's unclear if there's something otherworldly going on behind the otherwise crime drama themed show or if everything will be explained to be grounded in reality but there's been plenty of weirdness so far. It can be watched dubbed into English but I'm watching it in French with subs. Very atmospheric stuff.

Watched Good Omens on Amazon Prime. Very good, off the wall comedy. If you liked Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency then you'd probably dig this too. Has a similar crazy vibe.

Í just finished season 8 of Game of Thrones, and I think it was a pretty strong finale to the series. I´m definitely happy about how it ended.

Just watched it. An unexpected finale, but one I'm actually happy with. If you'd asked me earlier in season about who I'd be okay with dying at the end I may have said differently, but in the end I was okay with it.

Light Spoiler Warning (I don't go into any details, but even an opinion on such an important episode could be considered a spoiler, imo)



Well, it certainly wasn't the ending I would have come up with, and some parts of it were definitely stupid, but it wasn't all bad. It had a few really nice scenes, and some of the character's ended up in positions I'm satisfied with. 

Actual Spoiler Warning:











Drogon going all angry, burning the throne, then flying off with Dany's corpse was the single best part of the season, and one of my favorite scenes in the whole series.

So close now to the end of Game of Thrones and I'm actually kinda dreading it. It's not the first show I've invested years in since its first season and shows that go on so long have a history of falling flat on their face when it comes to ending and so far season 8 hasn't really done much to persuade me that this isn't going to be one them. Everything I've read over the last week from the cast and even GRRM himself isn't exactly filling me with confidence that this is going to be the finale anyone actually wants.

^I loved Bates Motel. Creepy that one, but lots of drama and some action too.

Well I definitely liked Dirk Gently. I was disappointed that it got cancelled. I expect I'll check The Umbrella Academy out when the current roster of TV shows dries up: one Game of Thrones to go plus the Arrowverse shows haven't got long to run each and the new Lucifer was released in one go now it's on Netflix (half way through and boy does a shorter season work wonders for storytelling - no filler episodes at all) plus some others I was watching have recently finished (such as The Grand Tour and Shadowhunters) so I'll be looking for a new series before long. I do have Bates Motel to finish still though. I'm currently working my way through season 4 (of 5) between the weekly episodes of other shows.
