Finished MR. SUNSHINE. It was really solid throughout, a bit overly slow at parts (but then the whole show was a slow burn intentionally), but the drama and history and acting really hammered it home into a solid thing. The last few eps are harrowing, and the ending was really well done.

Up next in the K-Drama category, probably ITAEWON CLASS, which gets really high marks from people...and it's not historical, as I feel I need a break before KINGDOM because I need as more modern show for now.

Son loves Mr Sunshine. Surprised. Even in its serious moments he is pretty tuned into it.

They make even mild shit so epic...like that one episode ends with Gua-dong (Korean samurai guy) gripping Ae-Shin's dress bottom on a dutch camera angle and the rain is slow-mo dropping behind them while the music is crazy ominous...it's super epic for no reason, and I loved it.

Finally got around to watching the last season of Preacher. The prior season was pretty lame, but this last season has been the bees knees. So much absurd has been going down my head is spinning.

If there ever is a live-action MBoTF series, the actor who plays Herr Starr would be a perfect Kallor.

HAMILTON is on Disney+.

Never seen it.

I hated it though? Like the libretto is all over the place, there is no sets, and I don't care for the over explanatory songs...like just ugh....I'll read a book about Burr/Hamilton instead to be honest.

I'm aware I'm in the super minority as this is a smash hit...but man I was bored.

I might give it another try once the season finishes and I can binge the episodes. The delay time of each episode releasing on a weekly schedule was also significant factor in me losing interest. I think the season is finished up by now, yeah?

Hawt damn I just finished Ep 8 of Snowpiercer. It was turned the fuck up to 11 for a bit. I canít wait to watch the final 2 eps on dvr yet I have no idea when that will be with 3 kids here at present.

Would recommend Snowpiercer. Need like 3 eps before it starts clicking along but even in its slowness then itís better then the other things that are NOT on cable in the corona times am I right?

I'm only about 4 eps into it, but I agree it's really good.

Mixed reviews. The phrase I keep seeing is "missed opportunity". Probably means it's OK but nothing really new.
Looks like it's similar in style/tone to the TV show "Merlin", which did nothing for me.
I'm not normally much of an Arthurian fan and this doesn't give me any reasons to watch.
Even though three of the leads are Aussies.

Lot of audience reviews (RT) are 1-2 stars.

YMMV though.

Damn, missed opportunity by Forged in Fire. They should have done a promotional tie-in episode with Ghost of Tsushima. Damn, I want a katana sooo bad now after playing the game.

The next new FiF episode is titled: "Japanese Ono"...soooo, *rubs-jaw ...maybe? *crosses-fingers

MERLIN started weak, but became SO strong by the last few seasons.

Awww Yisss Qwaaaeeeeen! This, spoon > flame > liquid > syringe > vein > GOOOOOOOO! I need this! July 22!

If you guys haven't watched Corporate, you've been missing out on a true gem. Think Office Space, but twisted and dark and fuhuuuhked Up! And with everyone WFH since March, ya'll know you need some cubicle / break room / conference room / restroom / buithniz chicanery to remember what it used to be like.

Oh, and Guardians, yes, he is the voice. (inside secret for Destiny players only, everyone else kick rocks...deuces).

I'm going to watch. I enjoyed Merlin too and I'm a fan of Arthurian legend. Hoping to enjoy without it being a game changer.

Iíve watched 13 minutes and 56 seconds of ep 1. Itís pretty! May put me in the mood to rewatch Sam Niels Merlin mini series. I would have watched more but Ghost of Tsushima is getting all my time today instead.

Finished Ep 7 of Mr Sunshine..so fucking tense on ep ends. Then that pick up on Ep 8. Holy shit. This some classic stuff here.
