I saw a couple episodes of it back in the day on Toonami but never watched all of it. Now that the complete season is on Netflix, I can.

Started the sixth and final season of The Expanse. The time I've caught up with the first five episodes the last one should be available. Two episodes in though and nothing seems familiar. I don't know if they're changing a lot or if book 6 just wasn't as memorable. Kind of sucks they're ending it though. There's still three books to come and I'm currently reading number nine. Doubly sucks that Alex is gone. The Expanse doesn't feel right without the core four intact. I'd honesty have preferred they recast him than kill him off.

Now you see that's what I thought was the deal, but I've seen sources that say differently more recently, including from the actor who plays the character who appears in Hawkeye (I don't really want to say his name for spoiler reasons). The MCU Wiki also writes up the character as a single canon between the two shows.

I was going to be watching Witcher 2 now but decided instead to replay the first five series of Peaky Blinders. Always cracks me up with the London scenes as most of those take place in little old Bolton. The swanky club run by the Italians is a council building located across from the town hall. Which is also next to where Jim MacDonald in Coronation Street staged his bank robbery which is next to where he appeared in court, for those who watch that soap opera LOL

Hawkeye, the one OG Avenger who always got upstaged in the movies, finally gets his own series to come into his own...and totally gets upstaged again. LOL

Enjoyed the six part series but man Hawkeye really cannot catch a break. Loved the character of Kate Bishop, Lucky the Dog and a certain surprising return from Netflix's ill fated MCU shows (which until last year I was sure had been de-canonized). 

Next on my show list I'm finally starting the final season of The Expanse. I'm also reading the final book at the same time, not that the show goes beyond book 6 (which sucks).

Also watching The Book of Boba Fett on the weekly, though I haven't seen yesterday's episode 2 yet.

Finished season 2 of The Witcher today. 

Overall I thought it was a really good season, though it made a lot of changes from the novel Blood of Elves. I don't remember the book that well since I read it before the third game even came out, so I'm just going on the summary on Witcher Wiki. The changes weren't necessarily bad though. They were more additions than anything and may in fact have been necessary to flesh out the novel for TV.

It reminds me a lot of "Fatherland" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatherland_(novel)) which itself was probably greatly influenced by the the Philip K. Dick novel "The Man in the High Castle".

Fatherland is an excellent book.

I finished the the first season and have only seen one episode in the second because it got a bit too depressing.


Yeah it´s rather brutal isn´t it? The scene in the room with the sister and the kids...eerie vile stuff.

Well...she isn´t the most sympathetic character to begin with, but there are signs here and there, that she can see beyond her own selfish ways. I won´t spoil it for those who haven´t watched season 2 yet, but there is definitely some major growth there. I think that´s what I find fascinating about her. She is conflicted...

Well that´s a relief. I will have to read those books some day.

I don´t know why, but I´m fascinated by the love story between Yennifer (I want to merry her. Such a clever and feisty lady) and Geralt (in addition to all the mystic magic and fantasy world story arc). Maybe it´s just the fact that it´s such a difficult and troubled love they share, that´s so interesting, but it touches me somehow, and I´m usually not a sucker for love stories, because they often seem so unrealistic to me.

^ It's already renewed for season 3. Plus a limited series prequel, a second animated movie, and a more family friendly animated spin-off. 

I've three episodes to go of season 2. I think it's really solid so far although there are some changes from the books that aren't sitting right.

Just finished:

Lucifer
Lacasa de Papel
and...
The Witcher season 2.

I´m gonna be furious if they cancel the latter. I love that series.

I did appreciate the little Easter egg in EP 2 though with the shrine of Witcher medallions and there was one that had the game's design.

^Yeah, the way that character was handled was just awful. A lot of fans are pissed off about that, for good reason. I was pretty sure I remembered him being in a few Witcher 3 quests, so I looked it up and was right, of course. I do think they handled a certain other important character I knew quite well, at the very least (someone else who was introduced at Kaer Morhen.)

I'm six episodes in, and I've been liking it, but not as much as season 1, for some reason. Could be I'm distracted by something else I'm enjoying a lot more, and it could also be that the overarching plot isn't doing much for me, and I prefer the more stand alone stories with Geralt. There have still been some great scenes, but aside from episodes 1 and 4, I haven't been overly excited.
