Last TV show you saw?


British minseries from 2020. Watched it in one go. 4hrs of scheming political intrigues interwoven with family problems. Loved the scheming political parts, but got a little bit bored with the family problems, even if those are an integral part of the story, there was a bit too much of that. Nontheless in total I liked it. In the end everybodys morals stop when they want to keep their job. 7/10

I'm half way through watching The Devil's Hour.

It's very rare that something jumps out at me as interesting, Capaldi and the apparent Doctor Who nature got my interest and I've binged 3 episodes tonight. So far it's gripping me and I really want to see how it ends. I'm getting lots of Doctor Who vibes and a hint of Warehouse 13.

Their photoshop skills are shit. If you watch it you'll know what I mean.
Is "His Dark Materials" worth starting?
I’ve ended up staying up until 3am to watch the other three episodes of The Devil’s Hour because I really wanted to see how it ended. Glad I did.
The irony of Netflix making a comedy about the competing national franchise they buried.
I feel like it could have been better if it were a period piece of Blockbuster either in its heyday, or right at the beginning where they brushed off Netflix as real competition.
So, I've finished The Boys, or rather, I caught up to as far as it's out yet.

Very good series. Slight spoilers ahead, but I don't feel spoiler tags to be necessary.

I think it's curious that the nominal heroine of the show is a superpowered person (to avoid the term "superhero", because that's marketing bullshit :p ), yet she rarely uses her powers. It's somewhat fitting though, as in this universe using superpowers is generally not portrayed in a positive light. So, I guess that was exactly the point.
Also, the show mercilessly takes shots at the cringy corporate marketing stuff we get bombarbed with in real life, and also (mostly) right-wing politial demagogues. They nailed and exaggerated this to a point where I regularly felt it literally painful to watch. Kudos for that. Additionally, the squick was really strong at times. Not my cup of tea to be honest, but it was fitting.

Tulsa King (2022)

As usual I have not much interest in family/relationship parts in such TV series, granted some drama is needed to motivate the people to advance the plot, but I just don't like it when scenes dealing with these parts are walzed out. = I start to skip. - Here I didn't skip too much. Which is good.

Not bad, not bad at all. Looking forward to a second series. 8/10

- As usual there is that one annoying character in every TV series: Here it is the taxi/chauffeur dude - Trying-to-be-cool greenhorn is a utter liability.
- Sadly one of the more interesting characters (the stable yard gal / ATF snitch) bought the farm too soon. Her complicated relation/pressure with all the parties involved was fun to watch.
- The May-September romance/friendship between 75yo Dwight and 49yo Stacy is a bit far fetched. Same goes for the stable owner suddenly being romantically interested in Dwight, during the last episode.
+ I like quirky background characters like the dope shop staff, or "badface" the Indian. They have potential for bigger parts in following seasons.
+ The old acquaintance, now living in Tulsa, trying to shoot Dwight and then soon after starting to work for him, was amusing to see.
- Stacy trying to protect Dwight by not wanting to inform/involve the FBI would raise the antennas of her colleagues easily in real life. A bit hard to believe.

I did a rewatch marathon of Justified in the past month.

The series is still a very good watch. The characters are brillantly written (Boyd Crowder is one of the best antagonists of all time), the dialogue is superb, and as a European I don't notice when Eastern Kentucky is portrayed inaccurately - not only with respect to filming it in California, but more on a cultural level.

Definitely a recommendation for some pulpy "Modern Day Western" drama.
