Finished IT'S OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY, and it ended perfectly. Wonderful show, well worth the watch. And it's pretty standalone, 16 eps and done, no need for anything more storywise.

And I've started ITAEWON CLASS and holy shit...Korean Drama's put our stuff to absolute shame for writing and execution...this is now the 3rd K-Drama I've watched and once again I'm stunned by the acting, writing, score, pacing, music, cinematography, direction...And this one is much more city-centred (MR. SUNSHINE was a period piece, and IOTNBO has like 2 episodes in Seoul before moving to the coastal Seongjin) so you get a nice taste of Seoul proper.

Tartakovsky's PRIMAL.

Holy fucking dinofuck, this cartoon is INSANE. The first two eps have just enough character building amidst the 22min of The Adventures of Mini-T-Rex and Neanderthal The Barbarian, ep 3 keeps the character beats going but ups the action, and 4 is essentially one long utterly mad action scene i had to watch again while i was watching it. And then again. I have not watched ep5 yet because of how many times i had to rewatch parts of 4 last night.

And the style... i haven't seen anything this ambitious since some of the original HEAVY METAL stuff and more recently the Netflix Robots anthology. There is no dialogue. none. grunting and roaring and screaming, yes, but zero actual words. The soundtrack is perfect, it properls you through the action.. and the action.... fuck me like a vegan chicken pot pie...

Spoiler



Also impressive, not just how cleverly the animation uses the two leads' expressions to convey emotion, but how sparsely they use that trick and trust the viewer to figure it out instead of giving a dinosaur human expressions or making a caveman emote.

Worth a look if you don't mind your cartoons bloody.

I'm two episodes in and am utterly blown away by how excellent it is. Well worth seeking out.

Giving a strong reccomendation for the show Dave. It's a new show that is available on FX network/FX on Hulu. Season debuted earlier this year and I just recently binged all episodes from the inaugural season. It is excellent. Very heart felt and earnest, and hilarious. GaTa is the best hype man ever! And the best friend. You gotta watch for the episode where GaTa reveals he is bi-polar. Dave should be right in the wheelhouse for thouse of you who are familar with and enjoy the show 'Atlanta'. Excellent show. Check it out.

Took me forever to get around to it, especially on the back of literally knowing people like this and having dated a girl from the Ontario town it's based on, but LETTERKENNY is fantastic!

Made to the point I normally turn Lonesome Dove off cause all the fire went out. I have decided to just go on since I have nothing else to watch and I donít feel like digging through my box to find another dvd.

Iím glad I never bought Return but if I had it Iíd probably just go ahead and watch it. Voight just canít bring what Jones brought.

I like to pretend Return never happened.

Best part about Return was my teenage ass having Reese Witherspoon to drool over.

I dare say I'm late to the party around here on this, but in case there's anyone else who hasn't gotten round to watching the TV version of What We Do In The Shadows - rectify that immediately.

Two seasons so far at ten 25 minute episodes each is too damn easily bingeable.

I keep hearing this. Gonna have to give it a go.




Season 2 of The Boys was very very good. Started kinda same ole same ole. But the last few episodes made up for it. Very solid.

Been watching s2 for spooky Halloween season entertainment. Two episodes to go.

Watching clips of Ted Cruz last week bloviate during the confirmation hearings of ACB, it dawned on me he is an energy vampire from the same mold as Colin Robinson. BTW, Colin Robinson just might be the best character, but I do love me Nandor and his aloofness (and his relationship with his familiar, Guillermo). Made even more hilarious when they reveal Nandor's history and him once being a brutal conqueror. Where would the house be without Guillermo's loyalty though? heh - Gizmo.

If you guys can find it, you really, really (like I mean really!) need to seek out Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal. You are not living your best life if you haven't watched this show.

The episode that aired Sunday night was unlike any animated offering I've ever seen. The episode is titled "Coven of the Damned" and, not going to even entertain spoilers, but lets just say it was right out of a Steven Erikson fever dream. It was fucking draw-dropping insane. And holy shit the feelz!
