I've watched two episodes of The Little Drummer Girl, and it's super intriguing. Not sure I've seen anything like this before. And the acting is really good from Alexander Skarsgaard, Michael Shannon and Florence Pugh. I hope this keeps it up all the way through since it's a miniseries.
It's wonderful. Have you seen The Night Manager?

Nope. I did watch one episode back when it premiered, cause I was supporting Susanne Bier, and I really liked what I saw of that as well. I'll get back to it pretty soon. Did it have a satisfying ending? Cause I read reports that they were looking to do another season but then it never amounted to anything.

It was definitely satisfying. I believe the talk of a S2 eventually morphed into Drummer Boy.

Strangers Things
Veronica Mars
The Boys - Looks kind of bad and not in a good way, but I'll see how it is at least.

I'll probably catch up Dark S2 also.

Finished up Jessica Jones Season 3. It was decent, but I wanted it to go out on a bigger high. Some of the morality stuff/themes pondered I didn't click with towards the end and felt it was well trodden material, especially for superhero shows. (I probably watch too many of them). Still contend if any of the Marvel shows should have been procedural, it should have been this one. Definitely would have given Jessica more character beats to play and possibly offered more engaging moments. It was nice seeing a cast member from The Knick show up though.

I've only seen the first season, but I always felt it would have worked much better as a Justified type of thing, where the first half is procedural and the second half is serialized. Daredevil and Luke Cage would have been better off that way too tbh.

Finished Stranger Things Season 3 yesterday. I didn't plan to binge the whole season in a day, but the pacing is really good and they did enough to keep me hooked to watch the next episode. Really helped their were only 8 and most episode don't go the full hour. The large group of characters works to the show's benefit, with not spending too much time on one group.

Finally got around to watching F is For Family Season 3. Show does a really good job of serialization for an animated show with a lot of things paying off towards the end. Series also gets surprisingly dark in the last few episodes. I'm glad it will be back for a 4th season.

Hey everybody, In The Dark is now on Netflix so you should all watch it. One of the best new shows of the year and the best show on The CW, give or take a The 100.

Oh and The Outpost is back tomorrow, please be excited.

I didn't watch the first season of this and the trailer was only so-so but I'm always interested in horror on the smallscreen, especially when it is serialized and over multiple seasons. Might give it a look some time.

Finished Attack on Titan Season 3 via Hulu. I started out originally watching weekly, but fell out and ending up going through the remainder of the season in a couple to days. Really liked they gave answers to some of the key questions I had and some of the episodes towards the end really hit me hard :(

The best show of last year returns next month and AMC finally dropped a little trailer:

Everyone watch it so I can get more of it and because it'll change your life. And if it doesn't, hey, you still watched a brilliant piece of television so no great loss.

So since we all watched The Outpost last night....
They killed Garret, possibly/maybe for good! Considering one of the things I disliked the most about the first season was the dull love triangle, this is a great turn of events.

And for those wondering, no, Talon didn't get impaled in this episode.

Finished the last season of Luther. I waited till it came to BBC America and had it saved on my DVR for a minute. Overall I thought the season was solid, although the finale could have used more time to give more weight to the 2 remaining storylines.

Finished Killing Eve season 2 the other day.

I started off liking Eve a good bit but by the end of the season I had begun to really dislike her. She'd constantly get on my nerves to the point that I'd be happy if she actually died at the start of season 3. I know for a fact that won't be the case but the show would be significantly better if it was all about Villanelle.

I think I was fully on the "fuck Eve" train when she forgot to tell her husband that they'd have a bodyguard living with them and then she pulled some, "I'm sorry if my job is inconvenient to you". I'm glad the writers had the husband call her on her shit because she was being insane there.

Also, the same motifs being played over and over got tiring. Get some more music, ya'll.
