Just finished season 3 of Young Justice, really good overall. If you have DC 's streaming service they uploaded the final 3 episodes all at once instead of making us wait for a change.

Shield season 7 - It is funny watching the end again. This show seems to be the inspiration to the ending of Dexter. Dexter failed where the Shield excellently succeeded.

The Boys - Watched the first episode. A solid start.

Ok so I'm ranking Tales of Arcadia just behind Avatar as my favorite animated series ever, everything just works so damn well, although trollhunters is quite a bit better then the most recent one, really great TV all round and a surprise to have such a good Netflix original.

Started watching Titans on DC streaming, the trailers made it look really cheap and I'm still not happy with the girl playing Raven but the show is actually really good. Yeah you can tell at times the budget isn't the highest but it's still well done and worth watching.

The Boys season 1 - Eh! Don't get me wrong it is a good show, but that ending is very predictable.

Mindhunter (S2) - Good

I liked it better than season one, but at the same time I didn’t like it as much. Better performances, but unfulfilling overall in the end.
You know what it is, not enough Kemper. Season 2 moves away from the interviews a bit too much IMO.

Enjoyed it far more than huge budget movies like Justice League.

Season 2 starts this Friday, I think.

I just finished it tonight and I'm really looking forward to the new season, I wish they would put them all up at once or at least in blocks so we could binge it vs waiting week to week. This seems like a perfect stay in and binge when it's cold outside show, I wish I had gotten into it last year instead of waiting for the hottest part of summer here in So Cal lol :)

I do think they could use a bit bigger budget for some of the special effects but the storytelling and mood of the show are great. I wasn't happy with the pictures of Starfire when I first saw the show advertised because the actress doesn't look anything like the character but she does a great job playing the part that's written for her, she's one of the strongest in the cast IMO. I really wish they had cast someone else for Raven, this girl just comes across as whiney and she's too baby faced for the part IMO, everyone else is good to great though.

yeah being able to binge watch is just better.

I stopped wanting actors to look like a character along time ago. It just massively limits the acting potential you can get for a role.

The interviews they did do were awesome. Kemper is beyond awesome. The main story left a lot to be desired, but that is because of the actual history of it. They could have chosen a different story arc.

Oh I know, when it comes to having the body types that they have etc yeah that's really hard but this girl just annoys me so it stands out more, finding an actress with a less pudgy face wouldn't have been difficult IMO.

Been binging New Girl in the background while I do my thing, forgot how good this show is. Never finished it when it aired, but kept up through the first few seasons.

About to finish season 2 of this, feel like the writing has either dropped off or my interest has.

Powering through anyway

"It's Bruno!"

One of those "man I got nothing to watch........ok let's give it a try"

and it's one of the most original and satisfying shows I've watched in a long time.

Gets better and better as it goes. I can't really explain it but it revolves around this guys dog Bruno and his neighbourhood.

I honestly can't explain it though, it's just a fun and satisfying show like right up there at the top of best things I've watched in the last few years. Great music too.

Stays pretty good until last, maybe last two seasons. The absolute final scene is laughably bad. Bad CG, bad everything.
yeah I remember not liking the second to last season and that caused me to not bother witg the final season.

Wandered back toward Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

I guess for a stupid long time only the first 2 seasons were on Netflix. Watched the first episode of Season 3.

Ash is even more the weirdest mix of being a necessary hero and a complete a******. The rumor is strong he'll wind up in Mortal Kombat 11 so I'm curious to see how that goes.


Watched more of the ultra bizarre Love, Death, and Robots with the episode Good Hunting. Another excellent episode, I'm really impressed with this show.
