The first four seasons are best, but season 5 to 8 are well worth watching. I think they could see it was in a bit of a decline, so pulled the plug before it went too far downhill.

I just started watching this last night. What would you do if you got caught in a stage musical?

If you're not a fan of musicals, all the singing and dancing might get a bit annoying, but I love it so far.Wink

First two episodes of the latest season have dropped and while more entertaining than the average Chibnall era episode they were also tonally all over the place with especially the first one going from comedic to outright horror as fast as you like. The opener was also clearly designed as a new stepping on point episode for the show even more so that the 15th Doctor's first episode the Christmas special with many things directly rehashed from early 9th Doctor episodes.

It is good as well for being its own story and not just trying to adapt one of the games though it is still very much in the spirit of the games. 

I finished season one of Fallout yesterday and this is hands down the best adaptation of a video game universe I've ever seen. These normally fall flat on their face but this was brilliant. I don't want to say any spoilers about it here but if you like the games this is a must watch (it's also canon). It also has the most extensive pre-war depictions yet seen in the franchise with many more flashbacks that anticipated and it feels like the franchise just finally delivered perhaps not hard answers but certainly a path to follow on how the Great War actually did start.

They have obviously held some staples of the Fallout series back for later seasons which it was kind of disappointing not to see: there are no super mutants encountered, deathclaws are only teased via bones and most of the robot types didn't appear. They missed a chance to have Ron Perlman featured in any capacity but we all know we wanted to hear him deliver the 'war, war never changes' line. Fallout 4 didn't have him do that either but he at least still had a cameo as the newsreader in the intro. 

The series certainly captured the inherent wackiness of Fallout and I hope that will continue into the next season and hopefully at least get a cameo from the Zetans.

^I liked The Crown, which I watched with my wife and my mother in law. I didn´t think there was any decline in acting, writing, or my interest in the story.

I'm just about done with the final series (series 6) of The Crown. It's really declined since the first two series, which were great. This is just tedious now, and I hate what they've done with some of the characters (the Queen Mother in particular!), and while Johnathan Pryce is a fine actor, he's just not a convincing Prince Phillip at all.

So obviously things changed between seasons 2 and 3 (changing from Fox to Hulu). The tone got slightly more serious and the episodes much longer...but it´s still damn brilliant. I have nothing to complain about. Great sci-fi show.

Secret Invasion
Loki (Season 2)
Ahsoka (Season 1)

^ enjoyed these. Currently on The Bear on Disney. Watched the first series and will start the second shortly. Wife hated it but I thought it was really strong (opposite of what I expected).

Last week while I had a few off days from work I watched:

Secret Invasion
Loki (Season 2)
Ahsoka (Season 1)

I´ve just started watching The Orville...damn that´s funny, especially to someone who has always found Startrek to be way too self-important to enjoy LOL.

I just finished watching this. It's absolutely hilarious and has more swearing than any other single TV program I've ever seen. It's completely OTT and over-acted, but that's part of what makes it so funny.

Have started watching this. I'm loving it so far.

This ended up being very good, especially the last two episodes. I think the first season was a bit more consistent, where this was a tad cringe in spots, but overall it's certainly one of the better recent MCU efforts, lol

Oh Ant-man 3 just has a post-credits scene that comes straight out of the last episode with Loki and Mobius seeing Victor Timely for the first time. 

Ant-man 3 was...not an especially great movie, especially for such an important one in the current multiverse arc of the MCU (it really can't be skipped without missing a vital part of the whole thing). Not She-Hulk bad but it really falls flat considering how much of a big deal this movie is supposed to be moving towards the next pair of Avengers movies.

^I still haven't seen Antman 3, so I have no clue what scene you're talking about, lol 

I am caught up with Loki, though, and so far I think it's been pretty good, but definitely not on par with the first season. It feels like it lacks focus a bit, at least so far, and while I liked Sylvie last season, I haven't liked her much this time around, for some reason.

Weekly on Fridays:



And while I'm not sure it's holding up to season 1, it's certainly among the MCU stronger recent output and the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was revisited in the last episode. 

And started Part 3 (whatever happened to calling things series or seasons?) of this:



I must say I'm really digging Part 3 of Lupin. 1 and 2 were good but there's some excellent heist work in these latest episodes. 

Quite a number of interesting looking shows dropping lately on top of my existing backlog.

I just found this on YouTube after years of wondering what it was like. I loved it when I was 7. And it holds up pretty well now because it's not dumbed down for kids - there are a heap of scientific references.
