I have been binging stuff on Netflix
I watched all of Lucifer, loved it
Latest season of Agents of Shield, loved that as well.

Currently watching Love, Death Robots. This is art. This is classic sci-fi. I adore it.

This series is INSANELY good. SONNIE'S EDGE, SUCKER OF SOULS (less for context or story and more for dialogue and atmosphere), ZIMA BLUE and especially BEYOND THE AQUILA RIFT and THE SECRET WAR are standouts. The other tales in there are good, but these are the ones that REALY resonated with me.

Jump into DARK after that if you've not seen it yet (and watch in German with subtitles).

Secret War was so good. I was totally absorbed into the story. I would like a full length film/book on it.

I loved Ice Age a lot as I watched it just after Beyond the Aquila Rift. After all of that super darkness, the whimsicality of Ice Age was extremely refreshing

There's not a single episode of LOVE, DEATH, ROBOTS that I didn't at least like if not outright love. Apparently there's another series coming.

Started watching the Netflix show RAISING DION and I thought it was going to be quite a cheesy, twee thing but it's actually quite a meaningful and deep show with lots of heart and humour that promises to get pretty epic. The two main characters are excellent and the way they're developing the child and his powers is engaging. Will definitely keep watching.

I might be alone in this but I very much enjoyed Final Space season 1, so the release of season 2 out of the blue (for me at least) was a pleasant surprise.

Almost Family is pretty fucking annoying yet I keep watching it. Huh. The genetic teeth tapping Beckley baby giveaway is so excessive. Every one of them does it.

Thanks I'd forgotten I hadn't watched them all yet!

Just watched Beyond Aquila Rift and The Secret War. That's a lot of fucked up right there; so good though.
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

Consider me very much super duper ultra maximum times two plus 1 surprised that Another Life got a S2.

I just didnít think it would make it. Iím glad it made it. Shocked there was no titties shown. This show has potential.

Oh boy, here we go. First we had a man in a snake proof suit that was supposed to be swallowed whole by a huge ass python. Then we had Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps racing a (very poorly CGI rendered) great white shark. So I guess it's not a stretch to think that this would be the next thing they would draw up in their brainstorming sessions - Man vs Bear.

So we finished this today and oh my goodness I wasn't expecting how actually brilliant it is. It is very powerful and wonderfully written/cast. It feels like a truly original superhero show. Please someone else watch this because I want to see what you think!

I did not know this existed! The Good Place did some short webisodes about how Shawn and the other demons did their "selection" in Season 4. About 20 minutes total over a trailer and 6 webisodes.

Ok, last night's episode of Watchmen. Goodness gracious the insanity was mesmerizing. The crazy was coming from all directions.

I really need to make some time so I can finally start watching His Dark Materials and posting in the proper thread! Maybe one day this week.

Finished up 1st half of 9-1-1 S3. Man this has so far been a very large dip in quality from past seasons. I mean there was some hella impactful moments here but most of this season was reduced to cheesy soap lvl bullshit. It will return in spring but in the mean time we will get the spin off 9-1-1 Lonestar. Hope itís good.

You really should. It is well worth the time - great adaptation so far.

Finally got caught up with this last season of Power up to the midseason finale. Damn, they're going GoT level sorrow with killing so many main characters off. I guess it's not all that edgy though, this being the final season. Also, that midseason cliffhanger is not very original, and I don't think most viewers are fooled by it. It's been quite the roller coaster of a final season though, so definitely going to finish it up. Tommy is out of his mind violent when he flips that switch. I can only see that being more so now.
