Breaking Bad 10/10

I'm a few years too late to the party but holy strawberry float this was straight poetry, just brilliant in every way
I guess some stuff in season 3 was a bit dumb but whatever it doesn't overly detract.

This is one of three shows I give a 10, meaning I like this show as much as i like Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop, which from me is no small accolade.

I've not really seen much of it but the few episodes I've seen (on Dave) have been fairly good.

Might have to watch more now.

Westworld Season 2

7/10

Incredibly complicated at times, but with some excellent moments.

Community Series 1-6 9/10

I've been watching these through with my sister (her 4/5th watch through) over the last few months and finished off the Saturday before Christmas.

Really enjoyed it, and thought the character design and evolvement was really good. Season 6 was notably weaker though.

The episode/bit where I laughed the hardest was when

in the episode where they start off the darkest timeline, the scenario which leads to the darkest timeline.
It was so unexpected.

Ash vs Evil Dead - Season 1 - 8/10

Stupid, over the top, poorly acted, nonsensical and just outright daft.

I loved it. :lol:

Travelers S1 and S2 (+S3E01). Very good. 10/10. I think its been renewed for S4 (?), and i really hope there is a plan to properly end this and it doent just fizzle out or gets cancelled on a cliff hanger, because it deserves so much more.

Black Lightning S1E01-S1E05. The script, the acting, the pacing, the editing is all off. 3/10 - I only really would watch more to see how it plays out, but i wouldnt be too bothered to just stop.

I just finished series 3 of Travelers and it gets even better.
Some great twists and well worth a watch.

The Last Kingdom Season 3

It remains a bit silly in places, but this is probably the best this show has been so far. Loads of backstabbing, double-crossing and plotting, reminds me a bit of Spartacus sometimes. Gutted with a couple of deaths this year as they've killed off some of my favourite characters, but this has been a thoroughly entertaining series from an increasingly impressive show.

8/10

One of my favourite comedy shows of recent years, absolutely love me some Community! :toot:

I agree that the character side of the show is one of its strongest elements (particularly in the first couple of seasons) - they really develop the characters really well and everyone is shown to have believable flaws and weaknesses. Most of my favourite episodes are the ones that focus on the interactions and relationships between the 7 core characters

Shame you didn't get on as well with Season 6, I really liked that a lot as it re-grounded the show a bit from some of the sillier moments which had started to get out of hand as the show progressed.

Just holding out for the movie now and the hashtag campaign will be complete.

Seasons 1 and 2 are golden, everything after was a hot mess (exception being 6 which I was too burned to watch). However much I loved the paintball episode, it was very much the beginning of the end.

Do you mean the paintball two-parter in season two? The first paintball episode is in season one and I think season two is by far the best of the show.

Season three isn't on the same level as the first two but it has its fair share of good episodes. Remedial Chaos Theory, the one where Dean is filming an advert for the college and the episode where they play Pierce's dad's computer game are all good.

I enjoyed Community greatly, though I don't remember many of its episodes. I remember the paintball episode where Jeff finally nails Britta, the terrible animated Christmas one and that's about it.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Season 1 and 2 are by far the best in the run of community, but there is gold throughout the six seasons (ignoring S4 when it was being run by a different team).

Season 3 went off the boil to a degree for me because they doubled down too far on the "concept" episodes and general "zany-ness" of things and pulled further away from the character and relationship driven humour and storylines.

Yes the college and the people who go there were always supposed to be a bit odd but they properly jumped the shark in S3:

The Dean basically shuts down the entire school for weeks, and spends thousands of dollars abusing the students into filming an advert? Come on.

Again the entire school is basically shut down whilst all of the students engage in a days long pillow fight? Are you kidding me?

To top it all off the end to the season was just insane. A deranged Chang takes over the community college, locking the Dean in a basement for months, paying a Moby impersonator to act has his doppelganger, firing large swathes of the staff, installing OTT security mechanisms on campus, hiring a bunch of children to act as security guards, blaming the riot that started all of this on a bunch of former students, hiring another actor to attempt to discredit and deter the curiosity of those former students, and ultimately setting in place a scenario that would quite literally have blown up and/or burned down the college, and potentially killing hundreds of people. :fp: What the actual strawberry float.

There were still some great jokes in there but the story and writing was becoming too ridiculous and lazy. The "off the rails" stuff like paintball and chicken fingers in S1 worked so well because it was a foil to the more grounded elements, take those away and you were left with something far less.

Season 5 and to a greater extent 6 were better in my book as they re-grounded the show in many ways.

I mean the original. Although the show continued for another good season and a half, someone somewhere reshaped the entire series around the original paintball ep and this caused the eventual shark-jumping.

You - 8/10

I thought the hype stories about people not being able to sleep after watching it were pretty silly. I liked how they focused on the stalker's perspective with Joe's inner monologue justifying his actions and giving the audience insight into his thinking.

There were a few instances where situations played out unrealistically in order to progress the story, and the Paco sidestory was almost completely pointless.

Other than that I thought it was great and will be looking forward to series 2.

Agreed, much preferred season 1.

Ive just got to the end of Travelers S3. Excellent. It did leave on a fairly satisfying end note if S3 is the last season. If S4 does happen its quite literally a reboot.

You

Binged this with the wife yesterday on Netflix. Essentially, a guy that runs a book shop comes across this girl and becomes obsessed with inserting himself into her life, going to some pretty drastic and daring measures.

Sunderland ‘till I Die - 8/10

Excellent documentary on Sunderland’s season in the Championship. Despite not being a fan of the club and knowing what happens at the end, I still found myself hoping they’d survive. :lol:

I don’t think it would be one for non-sports fans but anyone with even a passing (geddit?) interest in sport/football should check it out.
