Game Of Thrones Season 4

Just can’t fault it.

Episode 8 or 9 was some next level Mortal Kombat brutality :lol:

Peaky Blinders - Season 4 - 6/10

Adrien Brody has a really long and pointy nose. And his I-talian American accent is hilariously inconsistent. Felt this series was the weakest of the bunch, but still watchable enough. Polly is a rubbish character.

Overall great, a few bits I didn't like.


This. Really was pleasantly surprised. My only knowledge was the 1998 film with joey from friends so my expectation was pretty low.

This was actually really gripping, felt like “the Martian” but in a TV series with a strong Robinson. Crusoe vibe (yes I know that’s deliberate even in the naming) Got me thinking about mass effect andromeda since the story parallels are there. Definitely hope they do a second series.


Happy! - 8/10
Trippy, brutal and at times hilarious. Really love to know what the writers were on, but it was very enjoyable. Felt like a dead pool TV show crossed with a detective show. The main actor nails it!

Wasn’t expecting that in 3 -9. Strong stuff.

This shows quality is consistent unlike The Walking Dead.


I rewatch all the previous seasons before the new one starts and The Rains of Castamere gets me every time, superb episode. Obviously it doesn't have quite the same impact as the very first time (as at that point I hadn't yet read the books) and had no clue what was coming. I just sat there in silence after my first viewing of it, does a wonderful job of building the atmosphere throughout the episode as well.

Episode 8 I think, The Mountain and The Viper. Top stuff but Oberyn should have confirmed the kill.

Finished a few series recently.

Lucifer season 3. Love this (like the other series). Good fun and very likeable lead who would make a good David Tenant type Doctor Who. 8/10

Mr Robot series 3. Didn't really enjoy series 2, but felt this was a fair bit better. 7/10

Black Lightning. With the exception of Gotham, don't rate the DC TV series, they all seem very basic, corny, predictabe and tacky. This is no exception. 5/10

iZombie series 4. I think the novelty is wearing off slightly and this series seems a bit more adult themed which is a shame as it limits the potential audience. 7.5/10

Yes?

You can tell that Izombie is written by the guy that made veronica mars. They're both gooseberry fool.

I've given up on two shows recently. Jessica Jones I managed about half the episodes of season 2, but can't handle anymore. Utter gooseberry fool especially when compared to the very good first season. She's not liable in this season, and her buddies are insufferable. 3/10

Second is American Crime story OJ Simpson. It started off very strongly, but around halfway through it just seemed to have settle in going around in circles. Nothing interesting has happened for about 3 episodes so I've given up on it. 6/10 (good start and bad middle)

I've started watching ash vs the evil dead again,oh it's magical. So violent,so gory, so over the top, so strawberry floating cool. It's also an almost perfect mix of practical effects and cgi.

It gives a great idea of what the recent thing prequel could have looked like if they didn't ditch all the practical effects.

Cobra Kai - 10/10

Karate Kid is one of my favourite movies of all time and Cobra Kai was everything I could ever possibly want from something like this. Oh my god it was so strawberry floating hype!

Homeland Season 7

Yes, I realise I'm the only person still watching this. This series was pretty much more of the same, occasionally incredible, occasionally plodding but mostly entertaining enough to continue watching.

6/10

I'm a few episodes in and enjoying it. Nothing amazing but watchable. I didn't think much of season 3, and lost interest a bit, so it's nice that this season has still held my interest. I agree about Polly though.

Someone on here mentioned the modern music. I've found it very grating this season. Complete nothing scenes, like a car turning up, has some strawberry floating Arctic Monkeys (I'm guessing?) song blasting over the top for about 7 seconds. I don't mind the modern instrumentals, but the full on songs completely ruin some scenes :dread: .

Working my way back through the Detectorists, just watched series 2. Hugh and Russell looking for the mayor's chain is strawberry floating hilarious. Detectorists :wub:

The Alienist.

Great first series (10 episodes). Gritty, gruesome, compelling story, beautifully shot, well acted. Hope they do more.

9/10

Game Of Thrones season 5

Absolutely fantastic although disappointed about the ending & what happens due to spoiler culture.

A read that a new series hasn't as yet been commissioned as they're waiting to see how well the first fairs. Fingers crossed.

Stranger Things series 1

Really liked it. A lot of - weirdly enough - strange going-ons in the show which had me wondering how they could tie them all together well. And well really...cohesion is not exactly the strength of this programme, or at least there are still some questions left to be answered for later seasons. Really, what I liked the most were the characters, including a bully character I was pleased they added some nuance to. A cool 80s setting. Well-paced and gripping throughout. Looking forward to watching series 2 though I have heard some mildly worrying things about it - then again it's been pretty well-reviewed so we'll see, we'll see.
