What's on TV?

Aggretsuko Season 3 dropped.  Was so hard to stop after the fourth episode, because I really need sleep.... Yet I want to continue....

It dropped, and was watched.  Enjoyable as always.

Watched the 30-min Making of The Witcher that appeared on Netflix this past week. Interesting if you enjoy that stuff, doesn't go too in depth about certain aspects. If you pay close attention you'll learn some interesting tidbits about Poland and Polish culture.

 

And hearing one of the actresses compare the relationship of Geralt and Jaskier to Shrek and Donkey seemed, upon reflection, astonishingly accurate.

 Started rewatching  Person of Interest again. Third time now - original airing on tv and now twice on dvd.

 

 Jim Caviezel and Michael Emory. Damn good show.

 

If anyone hasn't seen it, it's something to add to your list. Despite being almost ten years old, it still rings true, and may be even more relevant in today's world.

Been watching a lot of Longmire this week. While I would never list police dramas as one of my favourite genres I do seem to watch a few of them. Maybe because there are so many. It's about a sherrif in small town Wyoming and has a bunch of themes that kind of resonated with me. Really enjoyed how they touch on native spirituality and life on the reservations. Just getting into season 6 now and same actors, same sets for the most part but feels like a latin soap opera. Will watch it to the end and I guess it''s good that it got a wrap up but it's lost it's some of it's soul to me.

I love the first few seasons of that show. Caviezel is awesome. I thought the show went downhill when it started concentrating to much on the mega-plot.

started watching Blood Ties.  the pilot was great, the show is still debatable.  there have been good episodes and not so great ones. I liked the books so I will continue to watch at least the first season.

I've been trying to watch Hannibal, but so far it isn't gripping my attention. Mikkelsen is a good Lecter, but the episodes are slow for my taste. I'm also not someone who enjoys psychology in any form, so that may have something to do with it.

 

I am waiting to watch the latest episode of The Boys until I finish cleaning mold lines on four more pieces of resin Mantic figures, as a reward for persevering through the grind.

I started watching it when. It was on TV and So glad Netflix picked it up. It is apparently based on a novel series which I want to read. It has a satisfying ending and the Landscape porn is worth watching for.

Well we finished the last of Grimm last night. The writers kept good plots til the end

I have always really liked that series.  there are maybe half a dozen episodes that i dont like to rewatch.  The rest of them mark a series that falls into my "this, this is what I want to see more of!" example of a TV series. 

 

The good news is that there is supposed to be a follow up series to Grimm that is being made.  The new series won't be a continuation, but it will be set in the same world and the producers said there will be cross connections and cameos by some of the first series characters.  Hopefully it will be as good.

  I have the box set. It was entertaining enough that I was irritated they only did two seasons of it, and that it ended with the characters in the circumstances they were in.

Finished Cursed.

Pleasing but old style premise. Rather liked the casting for Arthur and Morgana. Nimue was... dry.

 

It had clunky writing and boring direction. Could have been a lot better than it was, and that made me sad.

In honour of the 21st anniversary of the Moon leaving orbit, we watched the first episode of Space: 1999.

Somehow my wife never saw it while I watched it all the time when I was a kid.

It has aged....painfully.

I've actually been working my way through the whole run.  Kind of like watching a cosmic car crash.  I suspect it may hold some sort of record for the greatest quantity of truly stupid ideas crammed into a TV series.
