Dollhouse (2009)



Holds up surprisingly well. And the Epitaph episodes are set in 2019. Boom.

Game of Thrones - Season 8

Eh.

Having ventured further along the timeline than the books, each character has grown noticeably dumber, both figuratively and literally. Every character speaks less, says less, and I think probably means less with what they do say. I mean...

Sansa: What do dragons even eat?
Daenerys: (long beat)
Daenerys: ... whatever they want.

Pffft.

Barry - Season 2



"Barry" is funny is season 1, maybe a fraction twee overemphasizing the innocent abroad effect, but with season 2 they've pulled out some stops and started batting around some Mr Robot style surreality, episode 5 in particular. Worth it.

I finally decided to check out Dexter.  I'm currently almost done with season 4.

Comedy, extra dark. agagagagag

Whoops, Game of Thrones went and ended. For some reason I thought season eight had seven episodes. But no, it was six, and last night was the last one.

This week and last week, I think, were less boring than everything else in season eight but mostly just because the book spoilers were new and somewhat unexpected. So I find myself looking forward to the books now. Which is annoying because, by jingo, if those books ever do get published it sure won't be soon...

I've contemplated starting the book series again. But I don't honestly think I can face it. Even the fact there are two books still to go and the trail is eight years cold....

Got all the way through Season 6 of Dexter before running out of disks.  I still need Seasons 7 and 8 (or a multi-region blue-ray player for the disks I picked up in the US).

Dexter has many of the same "good things that turned out bad" and "bad things that turned out good" type of plot twists than made Breaking Bad so fun to watch.  I haven't looked up who the writers are, but I suspect that there may be some overlaps.

i did re-read the books before this season started. was lots of fun!
It was also a reminder that many characters never made it to the series and a few changed a lot.
Heck Jon hasn't met Danny yet in the books and neither is aware of the other's presence

Lots of negative feedback on this final season but i have enjoyed it.

Speaking of the books, seems like GRRM has sort of claimed Winds of Winter will be - finished? - "in hand" is what he says - some time next year. Worldcon 2020 happens July/August, so...

The Walking Dead, Season 9.  You would think the next new villain would be some variant of the previous ones.  Think again.  This season introduces (and hopefully keeps for next season - not sure yet, I've got a few episodes left) the a new villain that makes even me wonder how deeply deranged the writers are.  I'd rather go to dinner in Terminus and spend an evening playing baseball with Negan than have to deal with this nightmare.

Season 9 is over.  My new favorite villain is even more villainous than thought and will be around for Season 10.  agagagagag
