This series was a pleasant surprise. I really enjoyed both seasons. Although there are some of your standard high school types, the writing and the acting breath some life into the characters. It has both comedy, drama, and of course, sex.

Warrior (2019) Season 1, this show has lots of action, it thought provoking with an excellent cast and further proof that Bruce Lee still holds sway nod I give it a 4.5 out of 5 popcorn

I started watching The Walking Dead again after a year long pause and have a lot of catching up to do because I missed out on season 10 and I´ve watched six episodes now.

I´d still consider myself a fan but those Whisperers are annoying as hell and I really can´t stand Alpha and Beta. They also don´t make a lot of sense to me because Rick and his people have dealt with far more dangerous villains and now these freaks are the superdangerous new villains? Come on. Just get rid of Alpha and Beta and the rest will give up anyway.

I miss Rick Grimes and I am getting a bit bored with those same old locations and lack of info of what´s going on outside of Alexandria, Hilltop and Oceanside, and of course the Kingdom. What about the rest of the USA? And what happened to Rick ?

They could´ve done a bit more with this show, and it´s no wonder that they are considering to end it soon.

Still a good TV series though.

Lovecraft Country Season 1 (2020)

Season 1 is a genre-bending must-watch that expertly melds horror and racial commentary. Great to see black characters in such roles.

Archer Season 11 (2020)

After several season of one-offs, one of my fave TV shows is back in the real world, with the lead character out of a years-long coma, and it's back in stride.

Raised by Wolves. HBO MAX. Ridley Scott production. Great in fits and starts. Wish they had a bigger budget and Sir Rid was directing the whole thing, but very solid show.

Ratched (2020) 5/5

A prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest (though I've not seen the film in decades) this had absolutely beautiful cinematography, superb casting and overall was an absolutely stellar piece of work.

We Are Who We Are (HBO) star star star and one half out of 4 (so far).

This is currently unspooling at HBO, which has show 4 episodes so far. It is so different from everything else that i have seen, that I got impatient to wait till the series ended to rate it. I was curious if anyone else saw it, If you haven't and you like your cinema to have a more classic European/Italian feel to it, I would check this out. The first episode is a bit slow, but each episode so far gets progressively better.

  • Indian Matchmaking-Highly recommend (Netflix)
  • The Fall-detective "Gillian Anderson". Kind of dark but thrilling. Filmed in Belfast (Netflix)
  • Cheer-Depicts the world of highly competetive cheerleading (very acrobatic/cutthroat)
  • Intelligence-Canada's CIA. Really good. Rumors are it hit too close to home and was cancelled. New favorite actor: Ian Tracey (Netflix)

I recently binged Victorian Farm on Prime. It's about three historians who restore a centuries-old tenant farm in England, and live there and work the farm as people would have in the late 1800s. I was drawn to it because my ancestors were farmers in Wisconsin during the same time period.

I especially loved the parts where they were using a wheat bundling machine based on one invented by a Wisconsin farm worker - and one where they fixed a wheel using traditional wheelwright techniques. My great-great grandfather was granted an US patent for an improvement on a grain separator in 1872 - and was listed on census records from the mid-1800s as a wheelwright.

The whole series was pretty great - and definitely made me feel closer to "my people."

Breaking Bad I just finished this series this weekend, what a masterpiece of a show at every front, the ending was a little bit underwhelming though. But what a great experience the whole show is. 10/10

Just finished The Boys S2 4/5 the Girls get it done part was one of the best scenes of its kind I've ever seen done, I felt it. I'm going to miss that show if it doesn't do a S3. I'm so happy for Karl.

I don´t watch that show but when I first heard about it I immediately knew it would be your kind of TV show. lol I think I´ll watch a couple of episodes because of the Midwest references you mentioned, so thanks for sharing.

You also liked Downton Abbey a lot.

All my friends are raving about Raised by Wolves and Lovecraft Country.

Of all the shows mentioned in this thread, these two got me really curious.

The Third Day: Autumn 3.8/5. Couldn't watch the 12hr livestream episode but saw the 99min. one. I enjoyed it, very eerie. Definitely crucial to the storyline.

Oh, dear. I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. lol

Funny you should mention Downton Abbey. I just finished bingeing the UK version on Prime. I came up with two new drinking games: "I'd better get on." and "Poor Edith!" lol


Edit: Oh! And I should tell you that the midwest references are in the final episode. You really won't miss anything if you skip ahead.

Lovecraft Country - Season 1

It began very promising, but I found the writing in later episodes to be average. 3.5/5

The Third Day 4.5/5. That final episode had me on the edge of my seat til it was over. No idea which way it was going to go. Very slow paced, and gets weirder and weirder every episode. Very, very dark.

That was Mr. Toad's Wild Ride to me, I had no idea where it was going from one moment to the next. They threw everything except the kitchen sink in it but I had a ball watching it.

I found the storyline more compelling than the characters in the first episodes, and vice versa in the final ones.

We Are Who We Are - Season 1

One of my favorite current directors, Luca Guadagnino bangs out another winner with this coming of age mini-series about teens living in the bubble of an American military base in Italy. Too artsy to appeal to the masses I think, but I loved it. The majesty of the closing scene in the finale recalls the equally grand endings to the director's Call Me by Your Name and I Am Love. And I'm not just saying that because of the use of a Prince song. 4.5/5
