Black Summer.

A bumbling start but it definitely picked up and a few missteps aside it was quite enjoyable.

7/10

Love Death and Robots: Impossible to score/10

Like any anthology sometimes it hits, sometimes it doesn't. A few eps are mindblowingly gorgeous yet say absolutely nothing, several try and say something but in a poorly written, poorly executed manner, and one is just shockingly terrible.

My own ranking was probably:

Zima Blue
Good Hunting
Suits
When the Yogurt took over
Sonnie's Edge
Beyond the Aquila Rift
The Witness
Lucky 13
Fish Night
Shapeshifters
Helping Hand
The Secret War
Ice Age
Three Robots
Blindspot
Sucker of Souls
The Dump
Alternate Histories


Although even then, some of those are higher simply because they looked amazing (The Witness, Sonnie's Edge)

It's also super male gazey and its depiction of women is woeful. Every woman is either a victim looking for revenge, a quote unquote badass female or a sex object. Also also, none of the 18 shorts were directed by women which is strawberry floating shameful.

Some of it is heartstoppingly beautiful, some of it is nonsense. I saw it referred to as ArtStation the movie, and that's essentially what it is.

None of the episodes are connected, and each is about 10-15 minutes long. Easy to throw one in in-between...whatever else you have on.

Russian Doll: 9/10

Excellent little show, perfect for a binge watch.

Watched Three Robots and Sonnie's Edge. Visually stunning but both quite forgettable, (the dialogue in Sonnie's Edge is particularly bad). Might watch the rest as and when.

Yeah, they're very hit and miss.

My picks would be Zima Blue and Good Hunting, and I had a soft spot for Suits too. Blindspot and Alternate Histories are comfortably the worst.

Community Season 1 and 2. I really like them. I like how Alison Brie seems to get recognised as a big talent and gets drawn to a higher billing/role as the seasons progress. The first seaso and a half seem pretty normal in terms of the college theme storylines, but then they seem to lose ideas and just put together more zany escapades for the group to find themselves in - seems to jump the shark pretty early. S1 and half of S2 = 9/10 then on about a 7.

Theres another 4 seasons for me to watch on all 4 streaming for free, does it continue to mainly consist of far fetched one off episodes?

Mostly yes - comes back around at the end.

Community jumping the shark is one of the saddest moments in modern comedy TV for me, it was such a brilliant show when it maintained a grip on reality, or went for a bizarre, but brief, detour that was beautifully juxtaposed against that normality.

I still think that for the most part everything after S2 is very enjoyable, it only dances with being truly "bad" a couple of times but also manages some really high points again if you stick with it.

S6 is very strong in my opinion but many think it had lost too many of the original cast by that point.

Fleabag season 2 - Season 1 was very, very good but season 2 is incredible. It's so beautifully written and directed, every conversation is full of such nuance. It's not something I will ever love like The Detectorists mostly because I can't relate completely to the characters but I can imagine there is a swathe of people who will hold this up as the greatest thing ever made. And I can understand why, if it completely chimes with you then it must be revelatory. Every character has such depth, every line is tuned to absolute perfection. I'd put Waller-Bridge up there with the likes of Victoria Wood for her ability to write such brilliant characters. I did wonder why she'd be given the Bond gig having not seen her work previously, now I can understand and I probably need to move on to Killing Eve next.

Odd.

Now I'm a few eps in, I see why I forgot it.

It's a huge step down from season 4, likely due to it moving away from the books and fitting it's own path. I'm just finding large swaths of it to be super dull.


I'm a few episodes into season 5 now and this is the truth. Bit of a slog now. Must keep going though, need to watch the finale before it's spoiled for me.

Yeah Remedial Chaos Theory is definitely a top episode! Many people rate it as their favourite in fact, I wouldn't go that far but it is up there.

Curfew.

I really wanted to like it and it did have some good moments, but overall quite average.

5/10

Breaking Bad S1 : 9/10
Breaking Bad S2 : 10/10
Breaking Bad S3 : 9/10
Breaking Bad S4 : 10/10
Breaking Bad S5 : 10/10

I haven't binge watched this, I just didn't want some asshat spoiling it for me since I'm extremely late to the party. Watched it over the course of about six months.

It's the best TV I've ever seen, bar none. strawberry float Cora.
