Yeah we were saying that felt like a really good finale and an intriguing season opener squashed into one... I'm ok with it because the whole thing is freaking incredible but it felt sightly jarring...

... So they pulled what was supposed to be the last ep of S1 (the fight with Trigon) and inserted it as S2 Ep1....no one is sure why.


I didn't think it was a mystery. The show got crazy pre-reviews and a renewal before it was even out and they decided the last part of the S1 finale worked better as a premiere for S2., leaving a hell of a hook at the end of the S1 finale.

Just watched the S2 premiere... ok, fine it sort of works but i don't think it would have made much difference vs the other hook they have.

Ah yiss! Chop this up on a mirror, transfer to a spoon, put flame underneath to melt it down to a liquid, transfer that liquid to a syringe, and shoot that concentrated goodness directly into my carotid arteries. So pumped for this!

I think everyone has got creepy smiling weirdo James Holzhauer taking it, but don't sleep on Ken Jennings, I think people forget how dominant he was. I'm placing my bets on him. I will concede I think Holzhauer is quicker/better with the answer button and his 'all in' gambler strategy could pay off large.



It's over. I called it. Ken Jennings takes it. The first one to win three becomes the champion. James Holzhauer only took one. Brad Rutter should have just stayed home. Other then having an uncanny ability to find the daily doubles he didn't threaten at all. His daily double witchery helped Ken Jennings though, because it kept Holzhauer off his strategy of betting it all, every time he lands on a daily double. Jennings was impressive as hell though. And whoo-boy! these categories and answers were definitely chosen to test the limits of their knowledge. Well earned title of greatest of all time by Jennings.

Started watching Upstart Crow - I'd caught little bits in passing before but not really sat down to watch it and pay attention.

Ha, I love it. Gemma Whelan (Asha in GOT) is bloody brilliant as Kate and I would argue steals most of the best bits. As a bit of a history nut for that period as well I'm enjoying all the referencing going on too.

Finished up the final season of Silicon Valley. Consistently delivered throughout every season. I'm probably biased because I work in tech and the show hits the bulls-eye on so many of my experiences. Probably the way the original Office did for some of you lot? The final season was absurd. Russfest begs, nay, demands to be seen. Also, fuckin' Gabe, fuck that guy. Posted Image Anyone who has worked in tech or your company's IT dept. knows someone like Gabe.

In keeping with my sporadic watching patterns I have seen The Good Place Seasons 1-3 and Castlevania Season 1-2
I loved the Good Place. It felt very innovative.

And as for Castlevania, all I wanted was a fun anime but this show, especially Season 2 blew me away. I love Sypha

The Good Place is incredible, really sad it's ending soon (last part of the final season is now on Netflix weekly).

To be fair, the rate at which they burn through plot ideas makes a long showrun difficult.

I agree. I love the show, but it's got a finite bunch of stories to tell.

I do agree. I think it makes sense to finish on a strong note. Seems they learnt the lesson of the Office which massively dipped for about 2.5 seasons...

I think showrunners are starting to figure out that there are better long-term employment options in ending a show on a fan/critical loving high than riding it into the ground and then no one wants to work with you.

America’s Top Dog has been fun. Double win for me being in the middle of special eps of Live PD and also seeing some of the K9’s that appears on that show competing.

I really do hate the internet a lot of the times. So much dumb shit. In an effort to be 'first', inaccuracies are commonplace. Then dumb fucks read it and propagate it and give it life. Hey assholes, if you even attended only the first day of freshman level Journalism 101, at least make an attempt to apply what you learned (and are the basic tenets of journalism), dummies.
