Title: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on March 30, 2015, 07:28:48 pm
Thought Id make a new thread.

Off the top of my head, Better Call Saul, The Americans, Flash, Arrow, Shield, Community  and Archer.
Also started S3 of House of Cards

My fav thing atm is Better Call Saul and The Americans by a long shot. Looking forward to watching Bloodlines from Netflix too

Empire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_(2015_TV_series)) is really the only show I watch on a regular basis and since the season finale aired last week, I haven't really been watching anything lately. :[ Need to find a new series to binge watch though. :hmm:

I've been watching Better Call Saul, and re-watching all of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The drunkard in me loves this fucking show. Besides that, nothing current. Waiting on Game of Thrones.

Personally I think it's good in a soap opera kind of way. The music on it is horrible, but if you can look past that part of it, it's a pretty decent show. :yes:

Greatly anticipating the new season of Twin Peaks. I'm a huge fan of the series even though the ending sucked but I forgive Lynch because it's wasn't the ending he wanted. Also waiting on the new Game of Thrones season even though they killed off one of my favorite characters. The new season of Trailer Park Boys was a little lackluster for me. Lahey is starting to depress me.

As for me, im a sucker for low quality shitty tv shows. Sunday afternoon after lunch consists of discovery channel where all the over dramatized shows live, it also makes me want to fall a sleep which is a win win.

Apart from that, now that Top Gear is off, all i look forward to is UFC events which is not really TV but anyways.

I'm also waiting for most of those shows which Xaph has listed too.

Yeah Fargo was also an excellent show. Im greatly anticipating its second season but True Detective is probably my most anticipated show also. They are both a bit of risk though cause they will involve new casts and storylines so they basically have to hit all the right cords again. The casting of TD S2 sounds epic though

The Wire is sheer genius. Best drama series of all time IMO.

I like what they're doing with True Detective. Changing casts en storylines each season will keep it fresh. Most shows get stale after a few years.

Yeah definitely a great way to keep things fresh. Also refreshing to know a whole story arc will be completed within a season of the show.

Just watched the season finale of Better Call Saul. I didn't have high expectations of the show, but it completely blew me away. Hats off to Vince Gilligan and Bob Odenkirk.

The final episode itself was one of the weaker ones of the season. The penultimate episode was fantastic though.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on April 07, 2015, 07:48:09 pm
Yeah brilliant first season for BCS. Exceeded all expectations I had of the show. I agree that the penultimate episode was the best of the season, followed by the Mike one. It was consistently brilliant though.

Watched the newest Mad Men too. Was good but don't really know where they are going with it. Still can't really see an end game

Yeah, Mad Men has never really evolved and continued to improve like Breaking Bad did. At the start it was always between those 2 for best drama on tv atm however Breaking Bad quickly surpassed it by S3 imo. Im glad Mad Men is coming to an end, another season would've been too much.

Right now Justified is in its final season and it is so damn good. Finale next week :D

Post by: linkzero on April 20, 2015, 04:25:34 am
I've watched the first 6 episodes of Daredevil, I agree, very gripping series so far.
It's interesting how they can refer to events from The Avengers (the battle of New York), and how that brings about the events of the series, and some subtle references to Iron Man and the like, yet still retain this darker tone for the series.

New season of Game of Thrones started too. Can't say the first episode was particularly gripping, more just a catch-up on the fall out of last season's events.  Have to see what episode 2 has to hold.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: -Reivax- on April 20, 2015, 04:58:31 am
I finished Daredevil this weekend. Really epic! Episodes 7, 8 and 9 especially.

Season 5 of GoT starts pretty slowly, but it picks up steam at episode 4 (I've already watched the leaked episodes, couldn't resist :[).

Post by: madmaltese on April 20, 2015, 05:22:09 am
This season is the first season of GoT where I have a little concern of how it will stack up to the rest in a TV format. Book wise things sort of slowed down and my fav storyline/characters from the books at this stage have been completely left out apparently this season

I was looking forward to the Iron Islands storyline, can't believe they omitted it. Euron, Victarion, etc. That whole election process.
After watching the second ep though it's clear that they are going in fairly different directions now, which is fair enough.

Oh boy, if you feel like that after ep3 and before Fisk has even been introduced then you are in for a real treat ;)

At much as I loathe feminazis I still hated what happened in that scene because 1.It was borderline cuckholding(which is the 3rd worst fetish) and 2.I despise Ramsay almost as much as Circe if not more.

well in regards to point no.2 it worked exactly as intended. You're very much supposed to despise Ramsey.

My only problem was that every episode seems to get further away from the books. Something that I've come to accept however they are now making what seem to be like major character changes.

Still that scene was tame compared to many that came before it

Vincent D'nofrio, he was also the main character in Law and Order Criminal Intent, which I used to watch a lot.

Daredevil was really enjoyable. I especially enjoyed the fight scene in episode 2 I think, which was single take while he was beating up on the Russians.

Yeah, it was pretty underwhelming. The two episodes preceding the last one were much better.

So I guess Don ends up creating that famous Coca Cola ad? That's how I interpreted the final scene.

Yeah just watched it the other night. Enjoyable but hasn't grabbed me as quickly as the first episode of Season 1. Interested to see where it goes though cause the cast is amazing.

I caught up on watching Better Call Saul by the way. Quite enjoyable.  :mono:

Haven't started on the new season of True Detective. Heard it got mixed reviews though.

Game of Thrones still   :wow:  .  I think this season started a little slow, but the last few eps definitely made up for it. I hear that the series has pretty much caught up to the books now? Does that mean we get fillers, like we would in anime?  :tard:

Suits new season is about to start, I'm excited for that.  :hehe:

Been watching Murder In The First (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_in_the_First_%28TV_series%29), decent cop show but extremely predictable. Each season follows one case (from the crime all the way to the trial) and I pretty much solved season 1's crime by the third episode lol.

New season of Rookie Blue (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rookie_Blue) starts tonight, can't wait for that. :woo:

Also watched Broad City (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broad_City), fucking hilarious :lol: New season doesn't start til next year though. :[

The series is now completely caught up with the books (and with a few characters is actually quite ahead) except for one storyline that they have omitted and are doing next season.

GoT casting for season 6:

Legendary Fighter:  A man in his thirties or forties who is a great swordsman and a paragon of knighthood. He carries a hugely famous sword on his back.  The show is seeking a very impressive swordsman for the role- the best in Europe, for a week of filming fight scenes for a season 6 role. His ethnicity/race isnít specified, unlike many other roles.

Ser Arthur Dayne? :wow:

Yeah the book stannis is definitely different however there is no guarantee that the book won't go down a similar route as the TV show is ahead in the stannis story. The producers said that Martin gave them to story regarding Stannis' daughter.

For me the worst part of this season was all the Dorne material. So poor compared to the books and the sand snakes were a joke in the show.

And yeah Xaph, that has to be Dayne!!!

Shireen stays at Castle Black in the books though, while Stannis is off to Winterfell. I think she'll burn, but it'll be Melissandre rather than Stannis who goes ahead with it.

The whole storyline in season 5 was poorly done IMO. First he tells her about how he did everything in his power to save her when she was little, establishing how much he loves her. Then he decides to burn her in order to win a battle he loses the very next episode. So meaningless.

Does this mean he'll lose the Battle of Ice against the Boltons? If he does, he won't be able to go back to Castle Black to burn Shireen btw.

Yeah, I do agree man. A lot of the show's decisions seems to value the shock factor a little too much imo without having much of the depth of the books. But yeah I definitely agree they fucked up Stannis.

Surely! Surely, that didnt just happen. I've seen comments saying how the pre season trailer showed scenes with him that haven't happened yet. Also there was no blood with the shots so maybe rubber bullets?

Other than the ending though I'm starting to have a little problems with the show. I feel there is too much info dumps. As in too much of the story is just being told by 2 people having a very long conversation in an uninteresting setting and not enough is being shown. What do you think?

That bad aye? Lucky I passed on it. Wife and I were choosing between that and The Returned. Ended up watching Returned. Nothing too special but not horrible.

I gotta agree with Zodd too. Orange is the New Black S3 was very poor to say the least. The show has been on a fast slope downhill since the first excellent season.

At first I thought there was no way he could've survived that, but I've also read about the pre-season trailer scenes. And IIRC they made a point of him wearing a bullet-proof vest in the first episode.
I'm pretty ambiguous about his fate. On the one hand Ray Velcoro is the most interesting character of the cast and it would be a shame if he got killed of so soon. On the other hand it would be pretty powerful to kill off the main character so early (nobody's safe) and it would be pretty lame that he managed to survive that. Unless the masked killer wanted him to live...

I'm having the same feeling. It didn't bother me as much in season 1 because of the phenomenal performances of Harrelson and especially McConaughey and the flashbacks, but it's more noticeable this year. I'm still enjoying season 2, but I don't think it'll reach the heights of the first one.

I completely agree. Lost' biggest problem was that you had to wait weekly for an episode and that most people just cared about reveals so when an episode passed without any major plot reveal people got frustrated. S3 is far from the best season but it really isn't that bad as a whole. If Lost was released like Orange is the New Black (where you get the whole season at once) then you would hear zero hate. For Orange to be this bad when you have the ability to watch all eps at your own pace really says something about the quality of the most recent season.

Post by: madmaltese on July 06, 2015, 09:07:01 pm
True Detective Ep 3 was alright. Its slowly building but I have to admit that I know very very little about where it's going or even what is central to it all. At its current state there really isn't any major link between the main characters, although I'm sure that will all change. Sort of seems to be hinting at some major high class sex ring and this episode further explored sexuality issues with the main characters. My theory and hope is that it takes an 'Eyes Wide Shut' route and goes into the occult (slight hints with the Crow Face) and reveals the hidden sexual occult rings in Hollywood and politics, etc, imo that would be awesome and well worth the build up. ATM the stakes don't really feel high enough.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: linkzero on July 08, 2015, 01:57:12 am
I've caught up with True Detective now as well. To be honest, if I'm thinking back on the first season, I wouldn't say it was that amazing either though. I agree that both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson had good chemistry, and their scenes together made the dialogue work. It was also that Rust as a character was very interesting, since you don't really get the kind of nihilistic philosophy on mainstream television, so his exposition is interesting, while Marty's bewildered expressions have a relatable charm to it.
Story-wise, I don't feel like I was really driven by the mystery the whole series. I mean 'who is the Yellow King?' only felt like a big deal because of the air of mysticism and the occult behind it. I would say the breakdown of Rust & Marty's partnership, and their character development was more interesting.

Moving on to season 2, I have to say that I'm rather enjoying it, for a number of reasons. First off, I actually prefer the new setting this season. I'm a big fan of the film noir style and setting, it's reminiscent of LA Noire (the game), which was likewise inspired by similar films. As Mad mentioned, you can see this underbelly of vice and extravagance slowly becoming exposed to the surface too. I think each of the 4 leads (while getting less screen time each presumably), have interesting characters.
Velcoro is the blowout, self-destructive, but you can see that underlying it all, if he'd get his act together, he's a smart detective. But he's also fairly openly corrupt. What's fascinating is that his character could really go one way or the other, you don't know where his allegiance is eventually going to fall, so his actions through the season will be interesting.
Bezzerides is your badass character. Likewise smart, had a tough upbringing. Higher up the food chain, but likewise feels the pressure from her superiors. I think that if anything is a possibility of getting the 'Eyes Wide Shut' vibe that Mad is talking about, it'll be through her father's hippie commune and whatever happened in her childhood.
Woodrugh has the PTSD mercenary background, and the sexual confusion. Out of the three cops, he's probably the least interesting in terms of how he might affect the investigation, he seems to be playing it pretty straight for now.
Frank as the gangster gone legit, but having to sink back into the criminal underworld, kinda reminiscent of the Godfather. Except that his character is clearly a bit neurotic, which gives him an interesting vulnerability.

Dialogue wise, I haven't really found it to be as slow as season 1 to be honest. And there's slightly less of the philosophising, I feel. All I can think of at the moment is Frank talking about paper mache at the start of episode 2.

As I already mentioned, the mystery of 'whodunnit' was kind of anticlimactic in season 1. Likewise, the Crow Face, is almost certainly probably just someone hiding their face with whatever they could find (in this case a mask at Caspere's house, seeing as he had other animal heads hanging too). They've taken out Caspere and one of Frank's men. Smart money would be on the Russians.

To me, the stakes are already there for most of the characters. Velcoro has nothing to live for, is he going to by the end of this? Bezzerides has pressure from her superiors from State's Office, and the investigation, how is she going to play it? Frank just lost 5 million dollars, and is sinking back to criminal activity, how will he get out of it?
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on July 08, 2015, 07:35:54 pm
I think the biggest difference for me between the two seasons is the atmosphere. Season 1 set out its tone from the first ep and it just continued to build on it. Plus the format of telling the story through the interview was amazing too. With that said I don't think it's far to compare them directly as the only thing in common is the name and creator. I'm happy with them doing a completely different thing and it is still one of the best things on TV atm. I do have faith in the show also, I'm actually nearly certain that this season will have a stronger second half than S1.

Yeah, that's pretty much my opinion of season 2. Not nearly as memorable as the first season, but still a good show. Colin Farrell's character is the only one I truly care about.

Also, I think there's two episodes left.

I definitely think the season has gotten better with the time skip. And all the threads are converging, so the plot is making a lot more sense in how everything is connected.

I think both Colin Farrell's and Vince Vaugn's characters are really interesting.
I get the feeling that Taylor Kitsch's character's backstory is probably going to fall by the wayside, I can't see how it'll manage to flesh out and connect to the main plot within the next couple of episodes, but I could be surprised. Rachel McAdam's character's backstory is starting to intertwine with the whole commune thing.

Season 1 was a while back, while season 2 is still fresh in my mind. But personally, I don't see what was so memorable or even better about season 1.
The things that I can remember specifically about season 1 is:
The long take heist scene
Car rides with nihilist philosophy (though I can't think of any specific quotes)
Rust sitting at the desk, playing with beer cans.

To me, season 2 has moments that can match the stuff from season 1. And the plot-line of deep going corruption is more interesting than some cult serial killings.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on July 30, 2015, 10:50:10 pm
For me, season 1 was an absolute revelation. It was the highest piece of quality tv I saw since Breaking Bad finished and the only thing I could even put in a similar class.
The writing and acting were top notch as was the way the story was told and I personally really enjoy the cult setting but what makes it far better than S2 is the atmosphere and cinematography. S1 just had this sense of dread and eeriness to it that I haven't felt once this season. The colours and the way the season was shot was simply remarkable. Tbh I'd like to know if S2 got some of the same directors as S1 cause if not then that would probably explain the difference for me.

I am a sucker for good cinematography and using it as a story telling technique. Breaking Bad and Hannibal are currently the pinnacle of that for me with S1 of True Detective up there too.

Back onto season 2 though, I'll hold judgement till the end but I am just dying for it to take a super dark turn and go head first into some deep political sex rings with maybe small touches of the occult (I've given up all hope of it going full Deepnet webcam shit or full Satanic occult/Eyes Wide Shut material). Even just the use of these sex rings as a way to control people in power, although I think there is so much more potential for it to go into full date rape, underage sex and just the disgusting underbelly of power. They have even set up the 3 main characters' sexual issues perfectly, the whole rape story and Colin Farrell's 'son'. Please please please tie it all up together with the main plot.

Cary Joji Fukunaga directed all eight episodes of the first season, while every episode of season 2 was directed by someone else. According to some sources there were some difficulties between him and Pizzolatto. In one of the earlier episodes of season 2 there's an Asian movie director that's seen as a reference to Fukunaga.

So sad :(

It was his love for his son that got Ray Velcoro killed. For Frank it was his pride.

Ray's father actually predicts his death in the dream sequence of episode 3:

&feature=youtu.be&t=3m38s

Overall I really enjoyed season 2, especially the last couple of episodes. This season got progressively better, while the first one started with a bang but tailed off somewhat in the end. I still prefer season 1 though.

Also, Colin Farrell was fantastic as Ray Velcoro.

Yeah, Colin Farrell was definitely the highlight. Personally I enjoyed his tense relationship with Vince Vaugn's character. I mean, the tense sitdown in the kitchen? Frank had some good moments and lines himself too.

I agree with Xaph's analysis, the season got progressively better.
My reasoning is that this season was a conspiracy web of corruption, which started out with so many threads, none of them connected at first. Which confused the hell out of most people, which is why a lot of reviews were complaining about how noone knows what's going on. As the season draws on, connections start being made clear, and it all comes to a head nicely. For me, figuring it all out kinda made things interesting, sure it's no sit back and just enjoy the ride kind of show, you definitely need to concentrate, but I liked that.
The weakness of season two, is that it couldn't get people invested enough to care about all these different threads, before they started connecting up. It worked for me personally though.

Season one was just catch the killer as the main thread, and you knew that everything would be linking in around it, so it was much easier to follow, and I suppose, get invested in. The problem with that is that you need to have a good payoff, which it didn't have.

I'm going to re-watch season one sometime soon to re-evaluate. But I still stand by what I've said in that they've both got their strong points, and both seasons are about equal to me.

Jessica Jones S1: 9/10

It had its problems* but overall I really enjoyed it. Can't wait for season 2. Also excited for the Luke Cage series next year :)

Jessica Jones - watched the first six episodes so far and have really enjoyed it. I prefer the action oriented style of Daredevil more, but still good in its own right. Much more of a psychological thriller, and it's pretty traumatic even from the get go.
I'm also interested to see how the Like Cage series goes, seeing as he's featured pretty heavily so far. Wondering if the tone or themes will be different to set it apart.
I also like the opening credits music a lot more hehe

Also, what do you guys think of Into the Badlands, I've heard it rates pretty well in the premiere, and as a martial arts epic series, sounds intriguing.

The other series I've heard good things about is The Man in the High Castle. Sounds intriguing with the political thriller type stuff in an alternate history.

There's an intensity to the series, but also, a bit of frustration to how JJ messes up trying to take down Kilgrave (although, you could also see it as a positive, with a more fallible hero).

If you enjoyed that, check out The Jinx. Much shorter (6, 40min eps) but still brilliant. Pretty much the opposite scenario of a super rich guy connected to 3 disappearances and accused on murder 3 times.

Thoughts on this, Xaph? :wonder:

Yeah, I've read about his arguments. Most are pretty irrelevant or are easily debunked. What matters most about this documentary isn't whether Steven Avery is innocent or guilty. Nobody can say that for sure. The most striking aspect of the series is the stunning number of things that went wrong during the criminal investigation and the trial (deliberately or not).

I don't know if Steven Avery killed Theresa Halbach. However, in my opinion, a man is innocent of a crime until proven guilty. From what I've seen there's too much uncertainty to condemn Steven Avery to life in prison.

I'm about half way through Serial atm. Loving it. The main part I'm really enjoying is how 50/50 it is in terms of whether he could actually be guilty or not. Can't wait to hear more.

Sounds like an interesting enough case for S2. Ill probably wait till the whole season is out before I listen to it though.

I completely agree with everything you said. I read some interview with the creator and regarding the UFO angle, it was just something they put in because of the location and timing that the show is set. Apparently one of the highest UFO sightings area and time. Didn't add anything but didn't take anything away either for me.
When I heard Martin Freeman's voice I had a big gasp moment and loved how they were going to tie it all up.

I know you don't need to compare but given the similarities between the shows it's still fun to. For me, True Detective S1>Fargo S2>>Fargo S1>>>>>>>>>>>>>True Detective S2. That's not saying that TD S2 was bad just the other 3 are top level TV.

Personally, while there were some brilliant moments in True Detective S1, as a whole, I feel like both seasons of Fargo are more enjoyable.
For me, Fargo had the more gripping story, interesting characters (with the exception of Cohle from TD S1 being great, the supporting cast of S1 was not that interesting, TD S2 I think had more interesting characters than S1, but didn't get me to care or be invested in them as much as Fargo could), and wrapped things up pretty satisfactorily.
And I've mentioned before that personally, weighing up strengths and weaknesses, I probably preferred S2 of True Detective as a whole.

The latest season of Suits has been really intense, I've really enjoyed it so far.

I agree, Better Call Saul as been pretty good start to season 2, but I don't feel it's quite built up to the kind of cliffhanger intensity that Suits has. A lot of allusions though, I'm sure it'll build to something great by the end of the season.

And Walking Dead is still amazing.

The latest season of Suits has been really intense, I've really enjoyed it so far.

I agree, Better Call Saul as been pretty good start to season 2, but I don't feel it's quite built up to the kind of cliffhanger intensity that Suits has. A lot of allusions though, I'm sure it'll build to something great by the end of the season.

And Walking Dead is still amazing.

Those are my 3 picks for what's on TV at the moment.
Suits :yes: Easily my favourite more 'procedural' show, even though it has a serialised aspect too. Characters are top notch. Lot of fun.

The Walking Dead for me has been pretty average.....up until this second half of the season started again. The return episode was on of the best in years.

Silicon Valley is my fav comedy on tv now that Curb isn't on anymore.

Ok so I think I might have discovered one of the greatest shows I've ever seen. The best thing I've seen since Breaking Bad.

It's called Utopia (only 2 season, 6 eps each season). I just finished S1 and my mind is blown. Probably the darkest show I've ever seen from a tone point of view but visually the most spectacular thing ever. Bright colours and amazing cinematography. Can't recommend it highly enough.

It does go downhill but I think it's more attributed to how good the first few seasons were. It never really became bad so still worth watching.

For people starting it though, dont forget the Christmas Special episodes which aren't part of the season cause they contain major events.

Short reviews of recent watches:

Sherlock - Love it. Color me an official Cumberbitch.
House of Cards - Consistent quality. :yes:
Vikings - Enjoyed at first, but most recent season lost its steam for me.
Love - Something to put on for background noise as I played World of Wacraft. Meh.
Flaked - See above, but enjoyed Love more.
Jessica Jones - Meh. Better than shows like Arrow, but still pretty meh.
Master of None - Most enjoyable of the recent Netflix series.
Game of Thrones - :no:
Fear the Walking Dead S2 - Every episode feels like filler. Pretty shit.

In all, a lot of mediocre TV watching of late. Referring to mad's top shows, I loved Utopia, Breaking Bad, and Battlestar Galactica, so I'll get started on The Sopranos next (not feeling The Wire kind of vibes right now, but will check it out in time).

And I'd also like to give another shoutout to Black Mirror, watch that shit.

I caught up on House of Cards. The 4th season definitely makes up for the 3rd. And I like how they try to tie all these elements from past seasons together to make it more cohesive. I enjoyed it. Definitely not my favourite, I can see where the rave reviews come from, but it's not entertaining enough for me.

Game of Thrones, I would say that this season hasn't really started off with a bang yet. Just more setup for now. The big 'surprises' of the episode didn't really evoke much of me.
I'm not even sure which story thread I'm most interested in at the moment. Tyrion is my fave character, but his storyline is kind of at a standstill at the moment. Maybe Jaime and the King's Landing stuff at the moment, is what I'm looking forward to.

Haven't started on Fear the Walking Dead. That said, the past season of Walking Dead has still been very entertaining to me. And they've set up the next season pretty well. I know people have complained that the show has kind of purposely pushed things for the shock value, and fake-outs & cliffhangers to keep people interested, but having read the comics, I still like the direction the show has taken.

In terms of superhero shows, I'm currently watching both The Flash & Agents of SHIELD.
The Flash still kinda works on this sorta 90s-early millenial TV vibe, in that it's not as dark as say Arrow. In fact, I watched the crossover with Supergirl, and I think Supergirl is probably even more light.
Agents of SHIELD kind of started that way too, but beyond season 1, it's definitely gotten a little more serious in tone, they shifted from being procedural to having more long story arcs, the character arcs are really good, but the story still manages to move things forward at a pretty blistering pace. There are things that are initially a mystery, and in any other series you'd think they'd keep you in the dark for like half a season or more, but you kinda find out within a couple of episodes. They cram a lot in, so it feels very tightly packaged. I actually really enjoy it, and would recommend it to Marvel fans.
I haven't watched Gotham, but people tell me apparently it's gotten good, and is a fun watch. Anyone able to confirm?

Shame, although it looked like it might happen, I believe the actress did have other duties on another show too, and it never quite pulled the ratings it needed.

Hopefully some of the story threads get resolved through Agents of SHIELD or something.
Similarly, it's a shame that Marvel's Most Wanted didn't get picked up. They had to write out Bobbi and Hunter from the SHIELD series for it to work. I hope they come back now...

Have not read the comics, but the show seems like fun. It has some pretty fun action scenes, introduces some strangeness to keep things interesting. It's only just starting to build on the relationships between the main characters (and the old trope of the mysterious character's past coming back to haunt him is there), but the main 3 are pretty interesting.

Also, not really a spoiler, but just in case you're really nit-picky:

Keep those recommendations coming, Mad. I downloaded Utopia and Stranger Things ;)

I finished the first season of The Man in the High Castle recently. Pretty interesting show. Not as compelling as some Netflix and HBO shows I've watched recently, but still worth giving a chance (especially if you're interested in modern history).

I really liked Preacher. Quite entertaining, and the central 3 characters have good chemistry. A lot of people complained that it was slow moving, and that it's more of a prequel to the comics, but I really enjoyed the pacing to be honest.

If Ernest Cline wrote Stranger Things it would be like "Mom! Our Stand By Me and/or Goonies troupe needs to go through this Advanced Dungeons and Dragons portal because these of these crazy Close Encounters of the Third Kind lights so we can fight Literally The Xenomorph From Alien! Boy El, you sure are like Yoda from the Empire Strikes Back when you use The Force and that thing where you killed everyone is a lot like Scanners and Elfen Lied. I'm going to invite my friends over to watch The Thing and listen to The Clash, and I almost forgot to list all 6 artists on the mix tape at the end of the series, they were Metallica, Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Poison, and Blondie. Also did you hear my friend Will got an Atari 2600 for Christmas? His favorite games are Asteroids, Joust, Space Invaders, Kaboom, and Defender! THE 80S MOM. THE 80S!

Back on topic though, I believe that Stranger Things had more viewers than DD, House of Cards, and JJ right? The music in the show is amazing and I've been listening to the soundtrack on Apple Music while doing homework.

Mr. Robot. Season 2 has twists nearly every episode but, to me, it never feels far-fetched, outlandish, or unconvincing within the narrative. I never know what to expect, but I accept it unconditionally.

I've never seen a show with such a bewildered stage remain seemingly cohesive. Every episode seen has not failed to draw me in to the next, gnawing for any development given.

Intoxicated review 8.3/10

Edit: Must be noted I very much empathize with mental illness, which is present abound in this show.

I honestly didn't expect Nasir to embrace the jail life as much as he is. With the latest episode, he's doing things not exactly required to feel safe anymore, I feel. I guess it can be attributed to him losing hope, but damn. He goin' full thug. Side note: super stoked to see Michael Kenneth Williams, even if he is pressuring Nasir to completely conform for protection. I also don't quite understand the need for all the scenes about John Turturro's eczema, it honestly just feels like filler. I really don't see those scenes adding anything to the story. Still though, great show overall. Hope they can near the tension of the first episode in any future episode.

Spoiler: show
I have a feeling we are going to start seeing a little more insight into Nasir's possibly less innocent (or just darker) past. Last couple episodes they've emphasised how he has lied to his council and how he had a couple incidents at school. Maybe just showing that everyone can have a dark side. But yeah, he is far beyond the 'protection' stage and now doing things that will directly harm his defence (shaving head, tattoos, risking drug trafficking, etc). We also can't dismiss the possibility that it is going to reveal that he actually did kill the girl and is full aware of it and has been lying to the viewer along with everyone else.

The exzema scenes serve as a little comic relief to release the high tension in other scenes. Helps balance the show very well. But also the show is portraying a very personal perspective for the main characters. Showing many scenes which could be seen as pointless for multiple characters but it is there is show each person's personal life and challenges when they aren't in contact with each other. So with the exzema scenes, they are usually shown after or prior to an encounter with Nasir, paralleled with scenes of Nasir's biggest problems. Showing both character's personal problems outside of their legal defence (which is just  a job for John). They help keep the characters human and real, as opposed to nearly every other legal shows that only show scenes of lawyers when it's relevant to the case.

It's nearing the end now so I'm sure the tension will ramp back up. I'm really starting to think there is a high possibility that he actually lost control and maybe did kill her.

It's nearing the end now so I'm sure the tension will ramp back up. I'm really starting to think there is a high possibility that he actually lost control and maybe did kill her.


Spoiler: show
I guess, for me, such comic relief isn't something I feel is necessary (or in my case, desired) in a drama such as this. I feel a character's humanity could have been portrayed equally through means beyond the random quirk. But I see what you mean, I'll respect that it does add a layer of depth to a character, and help provide some balance in the show. I really do feel for the guy, in constant struggle just to continue carrying on by the minimal means he has, and his triumph in the latest episode did put a smile on my face.

While Nasir may have lied, I see it more as something he didn't deem important to the case. He was in 5th grade at the time, 10+ years prior, being bullied by something he didn't fully comprehend. It's hard for me to see that singular event as him having such a dark side, but you're right that it does open up some possibilities that there could be (and the more I think about it, likely will be) more incidents he may not have shed light on. In any case, I'll be totally mindfucked if he actually is the killer. Based on what we were shown leading up to the event, it just seems so unbelievable. But if Game of Thrones has taught me anything, well.. anything can happen.

For anyone that isn't watching The Night Of.....start.
Spoiler: show
I honestly didn't expect Nasir to embrace the jail life as much as he is. With the latest episode, he's doing things not exactly required to feel safe anymore, I feel. I guess it can be attributed to him losing hope, but damn. He goin' full thug. Side note: super stoked to see Michael Kenneth Williams, even if he is pressuring Nasir to completely conform for protection. I also don't quite understand the need for all the scenes about John Turturro's eczema, it honestly just feels like filler. I really don't see those scenes adding anything to the story. Still though, great show overall. Hope they can near the tension of the first episode in any future episode.

Spoiler: show
I have a feeling we are going to start seeing a little more insight into Nasir's possibly less innocent (or just darker) past. Last couple episodes they've emphasised how he has lied to his council and how he had a couple incidents at school. Maybe just showing that everyone can have a dark side. But yeah, he is far beyond the 'protection' stage and now doing things that will directly harm his defence (shaving head, tattoos, risking drug trafficking, etc). We also can't dismiss the possibility that it is going to reveal that he actually did kill the girl and is full aware of it and has been lying to the viewer along with everyone else.

The exzema scenes serve as a little comic relief to release the high tension in other scenes. Helps balance the show very well. But also the show is portraying a very personal perspective for the main characters. Showing many scenes which could be seen as pointless for multiple characters but it is there is show each person's personal life and challenges when they aren't in contact with each other. So with the exzema scenes, they are usually shown after or prior to an encounter with Nasir, paralleled with scenes of Nasir's biggest problems. Showing both character's personal problems outside of their legal defence (which is just  a job for John). They help keep the characters human and real, as opposed to nearly every other legal shows that only show scenes of lawyers when it's relevant to the case.

It's nearing the end now so I'm sure the tension will ramp back up. I'm really starting to think there is a high possibility that he actually lost control and maybe did kill her.


I started watching last week and I'm fully caught up now. Fantastic show. Very suspenseful.

Spoiler: show
Agreed, it's a distinct possibility at this point. I feel like things are slowly building up to that reveal and the other leads are just dead ends. Nasir is getting darker and darker every episode and I think it's more than just prison life affecting him.

Night Of: Part 7 spoilers:

Spoiler: show
So it's either taking the route of convincing us that Nasir really could've done it and then going to reveal he didn't or it is going to end with him being found Not Guilty, yet then reveal he actually did do it. The only moment I didn't like was when the defence attorney kissed him. Just felt rushed to me and I'm not sold that there was that connection yet between the two. Also it's going to come back to hurt them in court badly too so it feels more like a forced, written in point of drama than something natural.

Why would any of these assholes keep following Rick? Continuing to watch the show because season 4-6 have higher ratings than any of the earlier seasons so there's something that causes people to keep watching.

Walking Dead
Game of Thrones
Rick & Morty
Sherlock
Marvel Netflix - if you count it as a whole lol

Better Call Saul

I'd probably watch them in that order if I had to prioritise. Dunno if I'm missing much else.

3 Episodes into Luke Cage. Excellent so far. The off camera talent has definitely increased since Jessica Jones and even DD. Cinematography, music and editing is top class. Great production values.
Ep 1 is a little slow but by the end of 3 it already feels like a lot of plot has been covered. Loving it so far. Probably the less 'superhero' feel of the 3 netflix marvel shows so far.

He got shot by bullets that could pierce his skin and they went through a whole episode getting them out. He got shot in the stomach and the shoulder. They only pulled the shrapnel from his shoulder. No word on the abdomen shot where all his precious organs are at.. ????????????????????????

Episode ten is like "Hey lets hold a rally/blm thing against police brutality because this little kid got beat the fuck up by one of our officers in custody, but fuck that kid, we gotta get luke cage!!!! Buy my godkiller guns. Make harlem great again. Praise allah amen. Not to mention the blaxploitation is just rather tasteless imo.

Post by: linkzero on October 01, 2016, 05:28:08 pm
I've watched the first 8 episodes of Luke Cage. What I'll say is that, I feel like it is much more of a slow burn than Daredevil. I don't feel quite as compelled or on the edge of my seat by what's been happening in the series. I feel like part of it, is the fact that Luke Cage is that much more of an invulnerable hero character, that their doesn't feel like as much stakes to be invested in.
But things definitely seem to ramp up mid-season, from about episode 7 on.
The other thing I've noticed is that, since he's got such brute strength, he doesn't need stylish choreography to get the job done, so the fight scenes tend to seem a little less exciting. There's maybe only one fight scene so far that has really been creative with using his powers.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on October 02, 2016, 09:06:31 pm
Watched 5 eps so far. Pretty much agree with link. The fight scenes are easily the low point so far which is a bit disappointing but I think it has to do more than just his ability. The choreography and editing of those scenes just seems really basic (especially compared to the rest of the show). Very much enjoying it but nothing like how I was after first 5 eps of DD S2.

Terrible. It was like trying to quickly finish up a story with little depth involved. There was even little transition from the previous episode, as if it was an "oh shit we're on the last episode" afterthought. And honestly I'm kinda in agreement with Ob here, all said. The political overtones that apparently were key to the theme of this season, was a miss for me.


Overall, I enjoyed it well enough. But I'm far from impressed.

Second half of season: 7/10

Yeah, finished Luke Cage too. I dunno, it was just so meh in general to me. There were some good parts here and there, but nothing particularly gripping. I agree with what people are saying about the first half being stronger. But even then, I'd put both seasons of Daredevil ahead of this.

Spoiler: show
I liked the Method Man cameo  :yes:

Oh no doubt. I'd probably say:

First half of DD S2 > DDS1 > Second half of DDS2 > JJ > LC

I'd largely agree with that ranking, Mad.

Although I didn't particularly like Jessica Jones, in a sense. Like, I know that the character is supposed to be a train wreck, given all the abuse she's gone through. And the series has that sense of trauma and psychological thriller. But I found the character to be profoundly annoying, and just frustratingly stupid.

Luke Cage as a character, is much more likeable. That probably carried the series in a way.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on October 16, 2016, 04:34:50 am
Yeah I'd agree with all that. The reason I rank JJ higher as a series is that Kilgrave was just such a good villain and as such made his scenes thoroughly engrossing. LC lacked that. I think LC will be a highlight of the Defenders series though.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: linkzero on October 16, 2016, 05:13:30 am
Yeah, I agree, Luke Cage has the villain problem. Whereas Kilgrave was really good in Jessica Jones.

I also think the Luke Cage/Iron Fist buddy dynamic should be pretty good if that develops quickly in the Defenders.

Looking forward to some better action scenes in Iron Fist actually.

Given the amount of looping in the host programming, there's no reason Dolores hasn't freaked out and gone off course before, making the ending just another part of the past if the dual timeline theory is to hold.

Yeah I thought of that, but man that would be such a basic bait and switch from the writers.

What do you guys think about Bernard?
I'm starting to suspect he could be a host. Ep3 had a few things that make me think so even more. His whole son back story seems like a classic history story that was written into him. His connection with his 'wife' just via the vid calls is easily fitting into the fact he could be a host. Ford also used Bernard's son as a reason to keep him on task, sort of like how they use preprogrammed stories for the hosts to drive their actions. We have also only really ever seen Ford spend time with hosts he had created (not humans). Also would Ford actually trust a real human with that role? Finally he seems to be helping the hosts and definitely has a connection with them.

Spoiler: show

It's not immediately obvious about the two timelines thing though, just hinted at through the set design. I only know about it after reading some articles online. So I would say, that it would be part of the reveal. It might be that they're going to reveal that the series is time jumping in the next episode, given how difficult it would be to keep up this bait and switch if this were the case.

Look, I don't think suspecting Bernard is a host is unreasonable. Much like replicants in Blade Runner, the very notion in Westworld has hosts which look like realistic humans, will always bring the question to the viewer of whether any of the characters are human or host.
And the plot of episode 3 definitely feels like it wants to set us up to suspect Bernard.
The other interesting parallel, is that Ford in ep 2, leads the little boy host to the church steeple, which he likewise leads Bernard to at the end of the ep.
And in ep 3, Ford gives Teddy the Gunslinger host details to his origin story and asks him to remember it, then later in the episode Ford tells Bernard how Arnold's "personal life was marked by tragedy", and continues to describe Arnold (sounding more and more like Bernard), and then basically prompts Bernard to remember about his dead son Charlie.

So, I think there are both suspicions that Bernard is a host, but also that he has some connection to Arnold (Arnold either being real, or being part of the fake story like Wyatt was for Teddy).

Yeah I totally agree, the happy ending didn't fit the show at all. But if looking at it solely as a singular story, I really enjoyed it (especially because I was having a bad day tbh haha). Have to disagree with you about Shut Up and Dance though. While not a bad episode and tense as it was (much like White Bear), I really, really hated the troll face(s) at the end; seeing memes in television makes me cringe, especially in a show like this (I get that it's crucial to the theme of the episode, but fuck did it bother the shit out of me). I actually enjoyed Men Against Fire more.

The latest ep of Westworld blows the lid open.  :wow:

Spoiler: show
All the hints turned out to be fruitful. Bernard is a host. But it also blows open other theories. Stuff, like the picture which Ford showed Bernard which had 'Arnold' in it, there was a gap in the middle where a third person should have been standing. Likewise, in that photo, the person Bernard assumed to be Arnold is the father of Ford. So Bernard is likely to be a host created in Arnold's image.

Likewise, how much does Ford know? Including the conversations Bernard has been happening with Dolores.

Will Teresa be replaced by a host copy?

TWD Season 5

Rick arrives at relatively safe seeming town, calls everyone a pussy while pointing his gun at them, steals their guns, and murders at least one person. Christ. Also RIP Tyreese, one of the only good natured characters who isn't a helpless fool in the entire show.

I also started watching The Black Mirror. It's OK. A little too on the nose with social commentary for me sometimes. I watched the first 4 episodes so far and liked the pig fucker and robot clone husband ones the most. Google Glasses in the brain episode was too boring for me.

Awesome episode! No surprise regarding Bernard but still loved the reveal.
The only minor thing irking me these last couple episodes is how no one has the scientist walking around all over the places watching things with Maeve. I'm also not really buying the control she has over them (I get that her personality is made to control men but still).

I'm next to certain that the William = Man in Black theories will end up being spot on too.

I agree, season 7 has kind of run out of steam. It's very focused on building up the despair, but the plot kind of slows down because of it. And even though there have been a couple of character focused episodes, it doesn't really hit emotionally like previous seasons.
Although, if you know where the comic plot goes, it is building towards something. Unfortunately, I'm guessing the interesting stuff isn't going to happen til season 8.

The biggest problem TWD has had for a while now is the shifting episodes. Every week they build up a story and gain some momentum and then it's not revisted for at least 2 weeks if not 3. This season being the main example of this. All the hype of Negan in ep1 died down from them shifting all over the place after. Then you get the cool episode with King Ezekiel and we haven't seen him since. You get thrown a random Maggie episode or the one with the Woman camp. It's all over the place. Feels like a bunch of short stories than a proper serialised show.



Thankfully Westworld has been consistently epic. Finale was awesome.

I agree, a more Game of Thrones approach, where each episode does progress multiple stories is a much better way of telling the story, rather than jumping around.

First 4 episodes of Utopia. Pretty good, not sure if it's not rocking my face off because I'm not a Russian spy thriller kind of person or because it all basically feels like it's leading up to the last episode where everything comes together.

Also another show where everyone kind of seems like the bad guy. I like rooting for someone.
:)
Do you like the style of the show? Amazing cinematography and directing. Soooooo much of the story and hints are told through environmental imaging and colours, etc.

I'm probably not going to watch it again but the cinematography is nice :tard: I'll finish it up tonight.

It's no Battlestar Galactica 8)

I've never seen Sherlock :wonder:

It's a nice modern take. They also take plots from the short stories and add twists to them, or modernise them. It's quite clever.

The first couple of seasons in particular, have quite good mysteries. The third season, and now the fourth season, seem to be heading towards more of a character study of Holmes & Watson, while the mystery is more secondary.

No :( I'll see how the season ends though. I like simple stories I guess. A Star Trek episode wrap up in 45 minutes. Initial D's plot is "Will Takumi win the race? Yes.". No risk of not being satisfied.

Oh don't get me wrong, it was still good and I enjoyed it overall. But the second half and pretty much everything that involved Cottonmouth was just poor. So since that has been my last Netflix marvel taste, I'm, a little more in check.

I thought Cottonmouth was a great villain, Mad. Things got much less interesting when he kicked the bucket. Are you sure you're not confusing him with Diamondback (who was pretty boring)?

Watched the first couple eps of Iron Fist. Not really impressed so far but I don't think all of the hate is completely justified (at least, not yet). It starts off REAL slow like Luke Cage did so if you weren't a LC fan you probably won't like this either. I'm probably gonna watch a few more eps later tonight.

Completely agree. Incredibly tough scene to watch.

Spoiler: show
My main issue with Hannah (and with suicide in general) is that she completely destroyed the lifes of her loved ones (in this case her parents). I understand why she did it and I can't imagine how hard things must have been for her, I even think it takes a lot of courage to do what she did, but in the end she dealt a blow to her parents from which they'll never recover.

The open ending left the possibility of a second season. I'd like to see how the loose ends are tied up, but at the same time I think leaving it at one season would be more powerful.

I hope Bryce ends up in jail, though. What an asshole.

I agree with you guys in that it's not terrible. It's just not great either.

One of the biggest issues I have is that he's supposed to be a master martial artist. You would kind of expect his show would be able to showcase this with some awesome fight scenes, but they've all been bland so far.

The character is also frustratingly stupid.

On episode 8 of 13 Reasons Why. It's OK... it's another high school drama with 1D characters who are overly exaggerated archetypes of people that don't exist in non-TV life. But that's fine though, I watched all 5 seasons of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Angsty teen dramas where kids ignore adults and act like high school is the end of the world is my guilty pleasure.

Rated higher on IMDB than Star Trek TNG, BSG, and Curb Your Enthusiasm though? Ya'll crazy, general public. Still have a bunch to go before I can read your spoilers.

:| You're fucking kidding right? Literally 90% of the people on that show are carbon copies of people that I had the displeasure of meeting in HS.

Oh I forgot, you were probably one of the popular kids and never ever got bullied for anything. :shakes:

Yeah the gamer kids were super popular :weed: But no my school didn't have the slicked back hair Italian Mustang driving greaser, creepy photography stalker, 400 student Sophomore house parties, rapey jocks who only trade nudes on group texts shared by the whole school, the "cool kids" in the liquor store alley that buy you a 40 for some reason, Justin literally suggesting murdering Clay...  what.

I'm not saying it ruins the show, I watch lots of unrealistic teen dramas :)

What, you never had death threats at your school? I once had a M-80 blow up as I walked past a trash can because some dudes wanted me to get hurt for being the literal least popular kid in school (:wtf:). I'm just saying the show isn't THAT unrealistic, that's all.

Up to the last 2 episodes now and the show has picked up the pace, or at least got to the point. Episodes 9 through 11 were great. I get that they wanted to make 13 episodes for the 13 tapes, but the middle of this show dragged out the normal high school girl drama a bit. It feels like things are coming to a point now and I think a few too many of the first 8 hours of this show have been a Peter Jackson's King Kong-paced slow build up to it. :yes:

On The Leftovers S1 E5. Still no idea what is happening. Hate these silent chain-smoking cultists, but I have sympathy toward their abuse. I just hope their part of the story is worth their part of the show's mysteries.
Stick with it. S2 was one of the best seasons of anything I've seen and S3 (final season) is probably tied with Better Call Saul for best thing on TV atm imo.

Just finished S1, I can tell the show us leading up to SOMETHING given how bonkers it is getting. Overall I really enjoy the show, I guess I just haven't really dealt with entirely unexplained supernatural mystery since like.. Lost. And despite my overall enjoyment of Lost, we all remember how that hype plane crash-landed.

But I'll have to get back into Better Caul Saul, I had entirely forgotten to start S2, and now I see I'm more than a season behind.

Well it's from the same creator as Lost so there are many similarities. However he made it clear that The Leftovers isn't and will never be about why or how the event occurred. It's a character show about how people would react to such a cataclysmic event, so don't get too invested in the mystery element :P

I've watched the first three eps.

If you've seen Hannibal TV series (same producer & director for first ep), there is a very similar visual style with very striking imagery.

I've read the book (it's one of my favourites), and it follows the story pretty closely.
But my feeling is that if you've never read the book, the first few eps are going to be confusing as hell, because nothing is really explicitly explained. The show also takes its time, reveling in its lore building, so it feels like the story moves at a pretty slow pace too.
I still think it's brilliant, but it depends on whether you have the patience to stick with it.
It might be better to wait until all the eps are out, and then marathon it.

I thought the first two episodes were brilliant from start to finish. The third one felt like classic Lynch/Twin Peaks. The fourth episode was the poorest of the four, but I still liked it. Overall I'm very pleased so far.

I hope Good Cooper reverts to his normal self soon though. His current catatonic state will get annoying fast.

I think you might like it. It's produced by OitNB's Jenji Kohan. It kind of reminds me of OitNB sometimes.

5. The West Wing

6. Borgen

That would be a tough list to come up with. It's too hard for me to compare Dramas to comedies too. Just off the top of head though my top 5 (no comedies) in no particular order would be The Wire, Utopia, Breaking Bad, Sopranos, The Shield.

I agree, it would be really hard for me to rank my favourites, but off the top of my head Fargo, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Suits, Walking Dead, House MD.

I think Westworld and Preacher are upcoming favourites, but they haven't completed their second seasons yet.

I like Breaking Bad, but like Xaph, I wouldn't say it's one of my favourite shows that I'd be putting it top 10. Same with Mad Men. And House of Cards. I would consider those shows to be relatively overrated, compared to how I personally feel about them.

I've only watched the first season of The Wire, and I thought it was alright.

If we include comedies, I have a lot of nostalgia for Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Futurama, The IT Crowd, Boston Legal, Scrubs, and Community.

The dramas I used to watch when I was younger would have been Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Numbers, Burn Notice, 24, Dexter, Prison Break, Heroes, Supernatural. And while they're probably lower rated than some the 'acclaimed' TV shows, I probably enjoyed them more.

It was a very hard list to make because there are so many great shows. The top 3/top 5 was pretty easy, but #9 - #20 especially were very hard to rank.
I generally prefer drama over comedy.

Man, I need to rewatch The Wire.

I like Breaking Bad, but like Xaph, I wouldn't say it's one of my favourite shows that I'd be putting it top 10.

Agreed. Breaking Bad is a great show, but it's just not top 10 of all time for me. There are too much shows I just enjoyed more.

Does Band of Brothers count, and if so why isn't it #1?

Band of Brothers is a miniseries that only has 10 episodes, so I didn't consider it for my list. I wasn't as blown away by it as a lot of people are, in any case. I'd like to rewatch it, though.

I marathoned the Defenders.

I thought it was pretty good. It didn't drag like some of the more recent Netflix Marvel stuff. The characters seem to run into each other in a rather natural fashion and they react with each other true to their personality.

There's a good mix of humour, some decent fight scenes though nothing hugely memorable like from Daredevil.

So, GoT season 7... Wow.

Absolutely crazy season in terms of spectacle and excitement. Incredible ride, thoroughly enjoyed it. On the other hand, I kind of miss the more measured tone and the focus on political intrigue of the first couple of seasons. It's pretty clear that the showrunners no longer have Martin's material to base themselves on.

Dragons pew pew, fwoshhhh, roaaar.

It is crazy how much of a slow burn getting Daenerys to Westeros is and how fast everything has been moving now. Everyone basically just pops around the continent at will to be wherever they're needed. There doesn't seem like much time pressure from the dead.

GoT is basically now just a sit back, turn brain off and enjoy the spectacle kind of show and that is exactly what I did with S7 and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Felt like a real 'event' type show like BB did during it's final couple season run.

Yeah, it's unlike anything I've watched before. More esoteric than the first two seasons. It can get pretty frustrating at times (seems like Lynch enjoys teasing his audience), but I absolutely love it. Looking forward to the two-hour finale.

While I still enjoyed it, I don't think I've liked it as much as previous seasons.

They're basically running only on spectacle now. Following just the outlined plot beats, but not attempting to build on it. And while it feels intense in that a lot of things are happening at once, it feels empty to me. Sure, things have been building for 6 seasons already, but the change in pacing now makes everything feel undercut and unearned.
I miss the measured character development, dialogue and interaction. Things are just glossed over too much now.

I get that GRRM only gave them an outline, so they don't really have much to go off of. But I would've liked them to at least try and create some depth to the material. It doesn't feel like they could be bothered.

Yeah American Gods is a bit slow, but the actual novel is similar. It's not an action packed twist-filled story like GoT. Neil Gaiman has a very whimsical writing style. The events are essentially a catalyst to allow for tales of the gods to be told.

I've only seen the trailer, doesn't seem like my kind of show tbh. Looks like it got decent reviews (https://www.avclub.com/david-fincher-makes-netflix-s-serial-killer-thriller-mi-1819413628) though.

What's your conclusion? And at which season did you reach it?  :hehe:

When people have already expressed intent to murder you, don't let them go and give them the opportunity to murder you 3 seconds later. Not sure when people have reached this conclusion, but in the brave new world where people have to live in towns surrounded by giant fences, surely they must know to distrust people just a little bit.

Also, don't start wars and kill people at random, but it's not like this show follows the good guys.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: linkzero on November 11, 2017, 03:40:25 pm
Maybe it's not so much that they don't know to distrust, and more that they want to believe that there is still good in that world, and risk it.

Particularly Rick as the focus, he wants to find a better way than near indiscriminate killing but can't.
Both Carol and Morgan have had times where they want to walk away because they don't like the survival lifestyle. But they just can't escape.
It seems more like these lapses of judgement are more because of a desire that it'll work out, rather than fall apart as expected.

Loved the first episode of Black Mirror S4 since Star Trek TOS is one of my favorite things ever and Todd from Breaking Bad plays a perfect crazy person.

2 and 3 were both pretty good. Both suffered from a little too much of me asking the screen "Why would anyone do this?" like a horror move where the crew splits up after someone gets murdered.

I thought the new season of Black Mirror was alright, all told. Nothing particularly standout.

Re: eps 1-3
Spoiler: show

Ep 1 - I think the twist in point of view change was a nice touch. The themes are kind of previously been touched on in "White Christmas" in terms of torturing virtual copies of people.
Ep 2 - I think that the idea of being over-protective of children when raising them is definitely an interesting theme. If anything, it's not the technology that's scary here, it's the dysfunctional parental relationship that breaks things apart.
Ep 3 - I just think this is a dark, psychological torture episode. I don't really feel like it says anything about technology. Only how far someone might go to cover up their past. Again, a bit of a rehash of "Shut Up and Dance", really.


Re: eps 4-6
Spoiler: show

Ep 4 - I think this was an interesting take on the nature of love and relationships
Ep 5 - I didn't feel like anything from this episode was fresh. It's an artsy episode which doesn't really say anything about human nature or technology. We've seen post-apocalyptic futures where robots have wiped out humans, nothing interesting to see really.
Ep 6 - I like how this episode uses the same sort of mini-anthology format that "White Christmas" does to setup the story. It feels like a summation of the series of all the elements & homage to a few previous episodes.


Favourite episodes?
Mine are probably still White Christmas, & Hated in the Nation.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on January 15, 2018, 06:12:07 pm
Finished Black Mirror

Spoiler: show
Episode 4 was good, felt like another version of San Junipero which is a good thing. I picked the twist fairly early but it didn't take away from the ep. One of the better ones of the season.
Episode 5: Default was right. Worst ep of BM ever. Nothing about it felt like BM and it offered absolutely nothing.
Episode 6: Yeah, like you said link, they default wanted to make a White Christmas V2. Obviously it wasn't as good but it was still an enjoyable episode and one of the better ones this season. Loved the links to past eps and how all the techs came together in the episode too.

Overall I would say this was probably the most uneven season. Eps 3 and 5 are some of the worst BM has ever had and ep2 was decent but nothing amazing, so when watching in order it just felt very inconsistent. Still, even an average BM is better than nearly anything else.

I personally really enjoyed it, like 8/10.
But some people might find it slow or boring, very much depends on whether the subject matter of sci-fi/technology/potential immortality through cloning or creating new bodies interests you.
It has all the trappings of an HBO show, nudity/sex scenes, some pretty graphic violence, quite a lot of exposition.

I'm 2 eps into Altered Carbon. Pretty good so far. Very sci fi heavy though and massive amount of exposition in the first couple eps however it is needed as this world seems pretty fleshed out. So far it's ok but I hear things pick up significantly. Doesn't have that instant grab like say Westworld but I feel since it's a Netflix show it relies a lot less of cliffhangers.
It also has a fairly ridiculous amount of nudity and hey, I ain't complaining but I can't tell if it's intentionally done to build the world (in a world where the human body is nothing more than clothing, nudity loses a lot of it's privacy and value) or if it's to cater to the 'must have nudity' crowd, but it is one of the few shows I've watched where the nudity actually does feel a little forced at times.
Visually it's also beautiful.

This show is basically season 1 of Lost. It sets up a million interesting mysteries and gives you more questions than answers by the end. Since the show is heavily based on time travel, it feels inevitable that most of the unanswerable questions will be wrapped up with some cop out time travel thing rather than ever explained. I'm going to wait until the series is over to see if I should bother going down another hole like this.

Side note fuck Lost for ruining TV for me.

Also Big Mouth is pretty good.

Watched Seth Rogen's Hilarity For Charity today, was decent. All of the comedy sketches were lame, but the stand-up sets were pretty good.

Think I'm up to Ep9. It's slow but not in a good way because the central plot just isnt that great. The Punisher was slow also but much more focused and had the characters lead the way even when the plot was slow. Hoping at least the last few are good.

Yeah, the biggest issue IMO with S2 is the complete lack of a villain. I get that it's more about Jessica uncovering her past or whatever, but still...would've been nice to have a villain on the same level as Kilgrave or something. I still enjoyed it, I just don't think it was quite as good as S1. *shrug*

Yeah, to go from one of the best villains in Kilgrave to basically not even having one is easily one of the season's major negatives

It took me about the first half of the season to get hooked to it, not sure how far you got. I do love the style of comedy, also its super relatable to certain individuals i know, so that adds to the overall enjoyment of the whole show.

It's slow, it's pretty aimless, but I love it for it's character. It has a sort of unique charm/storytelling that I also appreciate about say Legion, Twin Peaks, even Westworld. But I'd understand why it wouldn't appeal to some.

Season 1 was fantastic, but I'm not sure if a second season is such a good idea.
I thought the same thing about Stranger Things, btw (and that second season was great).

Well, Stranger Things S2 made sense IMO because they hadn't completely gotten rid of the main bad guy (and even after S2 they still haven't), but I'm not too worried about 13RW. They left enough loose ends at the end of S1 to justify a new season IMO. I just hope they don't add a ridiculous amount of Hannah flashbacks for no reason. Her story's pretty much done at this point.

13 Reasons Why S2. Not done, but I love terrible teen shows and this one's up there. It's a show about a girl who killed herself and the entire town, the courts, the media, the school, everyone is still totally enthralled with the teenage drama 5 months later. As far as I can tell, the message of the show is "If you kill yourself you will be hella famous and everyone is going to care about you forever!".

The cringey sex scenes, attempted murder, and whiny high school kids going "Omg my image in high school is the most important thing ever, for the rest of my life", that's what drags me through this so far boring and pointless season of this show. 20 year olds playing overdramatic teenagers are my guilty pleasure.

I'm not even done with this season but if there isn't a school shooting by the end of this season or a season 3 revolving around a school shooting, I will eat my hat. The people who make this definitely seem like the type who think they can "tastefully handle" that "difficult subject".

First episode or two may come off a bit dense, given it is sci-fi based on a novel series (in my experience, they tend to just jump right in). Pay attention, stick with it, and the back-lore will ease up pretty quickly. You are then rewarded with pure sci-fi entertainment. :) It may not quite surpass BSG overall in my eyes but it gets a grand commendation for its lack of filler in comparison, on top of already how good of a show/story I feel it is.

Do you think it is better than S1?

Also for the record S1 was great, right up until they killed one of the best characters in the show and replaced him with the worst character in the show, and even after that it was still better than Iron Fist, Defenders and JJS2, so I wouldn't say we were shitting on S1.

Cottonmouth was a great villain. I really liked him.

I'd rate the Marvel Netflix shows I've watched in this order (from best to worst, LC and JJ are pretty interchangeable):
Daredevil season 1
Daredevil season 2
Luke Cage season 1
Jessica Jones season 1
Defenders season 1
Iron Fist season 1

Yet to watch:
The Punisher season 1
Jessica Jones season 2
Luke Cage season 2

I would agree with Mad's list. Punisher is entertaining and up there.
Although I haven't finished Jessica Jones season 2.

Iron Fist was so slow. And for a show where the main character is supposed to be a master of all martial arts, the fight choreography was lame. It was a mistake to cast someone without martial arts experience. They should try to write him towards using his mask sooner rather than later, and get stunt actors to do some better fight scenes.

Up to the finale of 13 Reasons Why S2. Been a big of a mess of a season. I hate the added storylines from the past that they have thrown in there, changes so much and in a negative way imo just so they could have more filler content.
If the finale doesn't have a

13 Reasons Why S2 was utter crap. Can't imagine how much worse it is going to be in S3 given that laughable ending.

Finished S1 of Atlanta. Liked it but it is a strange show. I feel like there isn't much flow from ep to ep. Really funny and dark in parts but also seems a bit over the top and comical at others. Keen for S2 though.

Actually, yeah, I can agree with that. Bushmaster was characterised pretty well.

I think the same problem exists for all the Marvel Netflix shows, in that 13 episodes is too long for the stories they're trying to tell, so you end up getting a whole tonne of fluff which drags it out. They need to shorten the season order, and tighten the plots.
The new Iron Fist season will be 10 episodes, interestingly. I'm tempted to see how much it will improve, especially with a new showrunner and fight choreographer (who did Black Panther).

Finished Luke Cage S2. Overall it is good but it definitely suffers again from being 13 eps. They really need to cut these to 10 or so each to avoid the drag in the later half of the show.
Bushmaster was a great character though.
Overall I'd prob say:
First half of S1>S2>>>>>>>>>>>>Second half of S1




and yeah Xaph, strange to have EOTFW renewed for a second season given just how perfect S1 was, including the ending.

The end seemed TOTALLY out of character for the show. It's basically a demon soul eating house, but the ending was super happy everything works out. Hugh just kind of agrees to stay with his wife? And then the old couple CHOOSES to die there? It doesn't seem bad at all... it's basically a ticket to immortality. Other than that I like how the end tied together with things like Luke seeing Abigail so nobody thought the mom was a killer their whole lives

Steins Gate is pretty good, not great. Maybe I missed why they couldn't just send a message back in time to the beginning and reset everything to fix all their problems at any point, but all of their problems seems liked they had no consequence because the whole point of the time machine is that they had a reset switch. He just never reset back far enough.

Season 2 theory, Kevin is the poopman acting like the Zodiac killer with his confession to prove how smart he is. This is like Primal Fear or something.

Is season 2 as good as season 1?
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: DefaultGen on October 26, 2018, 11:58:59 am
I binged both seasons in 2 days so I guess I liked them. I'd say season 1 was better. The doc crew was personally connected to the events of the first season, here they're just external observers.

I would say both seasons are good.
Season one had better character depth and focus.
Season two had a broader scope, but I felt the variety was entertaining. Certainly worth viewing if you enjoyed season one.

I was incredibly surprised that Season 2 was just as good as the first if not better. It really is better than a lot of real docos

Even though it was on Netflix, I think it was produced by a number of third parties.
Netflix is more likely to support their own productions going forward.
It's like the cancellation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist ahead of Disney's upcoming streaming service.
Wouldn't surprise me if this is the last season of Daredevil.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: BigD on October 30, 2018, 04:53:30 pm
Daredevil is one of Netflix's most popular shows though. I can't see it going to Disney's streaming service. Although it is produced by ABC Studios like Iron Fist and Luke Cage, so maybe you're right. :hmm:
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: linkzero on October 30, 2018, 09:28:03 pm
I can't comment on how then second season performed, but first season of Luke Cage was also one of the most popular shows that's year.

Finished the third season of Daredevil. Still really good. Doesn't feel drawn out despite being a full 13 episode order. The fight scene to look out for is in episode 4.

Easily one of the best fight scenes I've EVER watched. Amazing.

I'm currently watching The Punisher season 1 and haven't seen the second season of Luke Cage/Jessica Jones/Iron Fist yet. I have watched Defenders.

Do I need to watch season 2 of LC/JJ/IF before Daredevil season 3 or that not necessary?

I haven't watched DDS3 yet but nothing happens in S2 of either of those shows that is relevant to DD. Only The Defenders is a must before.

Out of those 3 only LC S2 is even worth seeing, the other 2 are incredibly average

Only Defenders really ties in to Daredevil S3. And more because Defenders was basically Daredevil S2.5.

Been catching up on the latest season of Better Call Saul, which is really starting to set things up towards Breaking Bad. It's been pretty good.

Has anyone started the new season of Narcos: Mexico yet? Wondering if it's any good. I actually preferred the third season of Narcos, compared to the first two.

I never finished the 3rd Season but want to go back to it now.

Keen to hear what ppl think about the new season also.

Started watching the documentary series Dogs last night. It's exactly what it says on the tin (https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ExactlywhatItSaysOnTheTin). If you like pets you'll love this.

Daredevil got canceled (https://deadline.com/2018/11/daredevil-canceled-netflix-3-seasons-1202511521/). Now I'm starting to think every Marvel property is just gonna end up on Disney's streaming service. Great. :[
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: madmaltese on November 30, 2018, 05:34:10 pm
For DD to get canceled it definitely looks that way. It was by a large margin their best from a quality and popularity point of view.
Title: Re: Currently watching (TV)...
Post by: linkzero on December 02, 2018, 04:34:59 am
Yeah I thought as much.

It's also why Netflix is pushing for more original content because theyre losing licensing left right and centre.

If Disney had Marvel and Fox movies and series, they can set up a very decent rival service.

Is Castlevania worth watching if you've never played the games? Asking for a friend. :wonder:

Yeah, the story is based on Castlevania III and it's not like anyone actually remembers the story to Castlevania III (or it had a very deep story). It's just badass vampire shit. If you know Castlevania is about whips and vampires and shit, you're pretty set.

I've watched the first couple of episodes, it's pretty good. The main protagonist is a but boring though.
Narcos S3 is my favourite.
