Watching DARK. It is so critically acclaimed and highly rated, and I am up to episode 5 now and I am still bored to tears. I can only hope things improve in Season 2 or towards the end of season 1.
Sounds like my experience with Strangers Things S2 and S3. S4 was pretty awesome though.
I enjoyed ST a lot more than DARK.

I have 3.5 episodes to go and it did get better, but it's also incredibly overrated. There's been some moments. I will never watch it again though.

Dark is complex - tried to get into season 2 after a break, and have forgotten too much from season 1. It’s like three stories in one. But the premiss is super cool, I need to try to get back into it again.

In a related note, congrats on returning to see your thread has grown as long (or longer) than any other thread on this forum!

I really liked Dark, slow burning timey wimey weirdness is right up my alley. Plus it has that great Fever Ray song which was apparently recorded in Reason! But it's not for everyone for sure. Its like asking a guns & roses fan to listen to selected ambient works 2. Neither of them are objectively bad, just incompatible aesthetics.

It's finished, and it all made perfect sense and came full circle.

I found the *spoilers ahead* introduction of a second world in the 3rd season to be a bit silly because it didn't allow time for enough exploration of world 1 post apocalypse.

But it all made sense as you know in the finale, what the true origin was and how the extra 2 worlds were created.

The soundtrack was fantastic. I can't argue there.

It ended the only way it could, they couldn't help themselves with that tiny little last line of leaving an opening, but, that's how shows are done.

I'm onto the 3 body problem and I guessed it in episode 1 but I still am really enjoying it so far, about a 7/10

Worth a watch if you're into Sci-Fi, and is only 8 episodes so can be gotten through reasonably quickly in spare time. I am kind of glad the days of 23 episode seasons are all but gone.

BTW Shogun is meant to be absolutely amazing, that will be next for me, even though the subject matter doesn't interest me as I am a sci-fi and fantasy nut, I like the actors in it and can't ignore the praise.

I really enjoyed 3 body problem, partly because for the simple reason one of the leads is from New Zealand. I dunno, when you're from a small country there's always something quite exciting about seeing an overseas show when someone has the same accent as you. Eg Gunny from the Expanse who is basically like the girls I went to high school with, and the story arc where she goes to Earth and runs off to see the ocean really struck a chord with me. Its hard to explain if you're not from here but whoever wrote it really knew what they're talking about.

Atm I'm rewatching Fringe. Its a bit grisly for my taste but so clever and extremely well acted. Anna Torv, man she's an under rated actress. She's in a great Australian spy drama called Secret City that i so really liked.

Love Anna, she is indeed underrated. I only saw the first season of Fringe, and never followed it up after, I'll keep it in mind.

Yes initially I thought 3BP was going to focus on Auggie's character but it's good that Jess Hong ended up being the main protagonist.

Wow, half way through Fallout.
I have never played the games but now I want to.

It's very liberal with guts and gore, a bit gross IMO, but the show is very compelling in the sense you just have to know what's coming next.

Just rewatched Koyannisqatsi. Normally its translated to 'life out of balance' but it actually means '99% of what you watch is shit compared to this'. No really, its an incredible piece of art, you'll never see things quite the same again after you've seen it. Fantastic soundtrack too.

On Halo now.
I do not understand the hate.
I mean Pablo as Master Chief is perfect (just as he was the perfect leprechaun god in American Gods).
If anything, the Kwan character is annoying, so maybe that's what put people off, but as a whole, I am really enjoying it and give it an 8/10. I am only up to episode 3, so maybe it gets worse or something, I dunno. But the first episode was a 9/10 for me and others don't seem to agree.

Fringe is a ride you have to take all the way.
If you ain't hip to the rare Housequake, shut up already.

Damn.
