Re: The Capture (Peacock) -- S: Holliday Grainger -- Premieres 7/15/20

This was on in Britain like a year ago. It was fine. I'd watch a season 2.

Re: Trackers (Cinemax) -- International action series -- Premieres 6/5/20

This is supposedly the first All South African-written big(-ish) budget production intended for world consumption. Made in partnership with the British, and I believe it aired in S.A. about a year...

Re: Last Show You Binged?

Rewatched S1 of Altered Carbon since I just read the book. Now I understand more about WTH was going on. :D

It's a good production...I just can't understand why they changed a few key bits of the...

Re: Better Call Saul (S5E07) -- "JMM" -- 3/30/20

Some people aren't in it for the money and they can never be satisfied attaining a certain level. It's a personality type. I've got a bit of it myself (not to Gus' extent and not as a criminal, of...

Re: Star Trek: Picard - Et in Arcadia, Ego Part 2 (S1E10) - 3/26/20

After thinking this was the greatest ST in a decade for the first 3 eps, now it's just a hate-watch like Disco. Too bad. What a waste of Stewart and the TNG cast that showed up for this.

Re: Devs (c: Alex Garland, s: Mizuno, Offerman) (FX on Hulu) -- 3/5/20

Read Tegmark's (MIT Prof.) "Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence" if you want to be scared shitless about the coming AI singularity. He also touches on quantum computing. It's...

Re: The Outsider (HBO) - based on the Stephen King novel - S: Mendelsohn, Bateman - premieres 1/12/20

Sputtered is the right word. Very by-the-numbers resolution, and any mystery the "Cuco" held was completely gone by the episode halfway mark. Then just lots of exposition and getting the story...

Re: Star Trek: Picard - Nepenthe (S1E7) - 3/5/20

Good episode with two quibbles that no doubt make me a pedant. :)

1) The extra from the Tolkien movie, the guy with the sword: he bonded to Picard's cause, vowed to protect Picard, but then said...

Re: Shows that retooled/recast their 2nd seasons?

Strike Back. Season 1 had Chris Ryan's book character John Porter, then it was recast and reset as "based on" Chris Ryan's work. For the better, IMO, and it turned into one of my favorite shows at...

Re: Star Trek: Picard - Remembrance (S1E1) - 1/23/20

One of the few benefits of ageing is realizing you can just ignore naive young people and their stupid opinions. :D

This is the Trek I've been waiting for, for 20 years. Outstanding.

Re: Reprisal (Hulu) -- S: Abigail Spencer -- premieres 12/6/19

The casting is weird to me. Like they could only select from frat boys attending west-coast schools or something. I really like Spencer from seeing her in Rectify, though, and I'll watch a few.

Re: For All Mankind (Apple TV+) -- S: Joel Kinnaman -- NASA series from the creator of Battlestar Galacti

OK, now this is just getting silly. Tying the Equal Rights Amendment to space travel. I get this is speculative fiction, but it is just hitting us over the head with wokeness as the be-all end-all...

Re: Watchmen (HBO) -- Season 1 Thread -- Premieres 10/20/19

I'm only 3.5 eps in, but find it oddly fascinating to watch. I read the "book" 30 years ago but remember nothing about it except not liking it at all. Not sure what-all is going on, but I'm in!

Re: For All Mankind (Apple TV+) -- S: Joel Kinnaman -- NASA series from the creator of Battlestar Galacti

Also the same theme as BSG - you get a bunch of hard-drinkin' misfits of diverse ethnic and gender makeup, add in a little romance, inexplicably give them the keys to a space ship, and they can...

re: The Mandalorian: Chapters 1 and 2: The Child (S1E1 & S1E2) - 11/12/19 & 11/15/19

So this is set right after the fall of the Empire, but Mando doesn't know what the Force is? Was it really supposed to be such a niche thing, even after Han, Yoda, Darth, etc.? Central figures on...

re: The Mandalorian: Chapters 1 and 2: The Child (S1E1 & S1E2) - 11/12/19 & 11/15/19

Agreed completely. I thought ep1 was pretty good, nothing spectacular, but fun. But it's a big mistake to separate the main character from the audience with a helmet. It doesn't work.

Re: The Soup (E!) - Series Thread

Back when we had a snark deficit, this was a fun show. Today, snark is everywhere and it's annoying.

Re: Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan (Amazon) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 11/1/19

Yeah, this show is fine for its production values, and Krasinski is good in it, but this Ryan has very little in common with the actual Jack Ryan of the Clancy books.

Jack Ryan Actual was a...

Re: For All Mankind (Apple TV+) -- S: Joel Kinnaman -- NASA series from the creator of Battlestar Galacti

Having watched the first two eps, I think this is really a mixed bag. I still really like the concept, the "Red Moon" idea, the push to militarize everything vs the theme of pure exploration, etc. It...

Kate McKinnon is holding this entire show together, to the extent that it's together at all.... She's awesome.

Not saying you're wrong, but at my workplace (large law enforcement agency with average people), there have not been any common-interest shows in quite some time. Everything is so fragmented - but...

Re: Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO) -- Season 9 Thread -- Premieres 10/1/17

Yes! :D

Curb is one of those shows that I never expect to come back but always love it when it does. I'll take anything Larry David makes.

Hey, another opening skit with Alec Baldwin as Trump! He KILLED IT, as usual! Very fresh, and hilarious! This act is just getting better with age...I hope they do this every week until 2030!...
