Only a few episodes in INVINCIBLE but I’m already hooked. There’s a lot of anime in there, more than I’m used to for sure, and it feels strange to be this intrigued by an American-made animation series about super heroes.
Superstore continues to make me feel uncomfortable with some of its basic narratives, like, people who work retail are the dumbest and most useless and should never aspire to, or deserve, anything better, or the terrible treatment that everybody exclusively reserves for Sandra. I’ve begun season 5, BTW. And this is weird because the show’s pleasant and fun otherwise.
The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 is doubtlessly a highly polished mess and, with tone all over the place, character identities thrown to the wind, and the show being funny for the wrong reasons, I have struggled more and more making myself watch it, as it progressed, to the point I have the finale there and I can’t get myself to commit.
Season 2 had its fair share of obvious problems but still managed to be eminently watchable; all in all I think I would have preferred if they stayed with the claustrophobic, oppressive and paranoid ambience of the first half of Season 1, but no, they had to go ahead and please the shipper crowd.
I hear Season 4 kind of gets back on track, but I guess that’s Season 2 track and I’m not sure I’m still all that interested.
This Is us started out idiotic and manipulatively fake but by the end of season 1 I see why people keep watching this. If This is Us was a person, it’d be the one who’s so disgustingly super nice, that it turns out they’re actually the worst.
The Man in the High Castle Season 1 is boring me. I don’t actively dislike it, but boy it takes a deliberate effort to start a new episode.
The Terror: Infamy is very good but it’s failing to grab me in the same way as the first season, which was absolutely ace. Wish I could appreciate it more.
All along in my recent trips, I’ve felt orphan of the wonderful Halt and Catch Fire, a TV show that’s so good that I watched it twice in a row. Massive kudos to AMC for letting it run for four seasons, in spite of the ratings.
I’ve been looking up the two Chrirses, however apparently they might not have anything else lined up, though there is that film with Scoot McNairy that I might watch at some point.
