Z Nation (2014-2018)

It's not the same quality as The Walking Dead, but for a zombie series, it's still not bad.  On the other hand, despite managing to deal with the all the drama of end of the world as we know it, it still manages to maintain a deeply demented sense of humor.

BTW - George RR Martin has a guest spot in one episode.

I'm currently on Season 3 (of 5) and am still enjoying it.

Temple (2019)

Eh.

British remake of 2017's Norwegian tv show Valkyrien. Interesting that Valkyrien got remade so fast, I guess, but pretty sure they did so only because it got so much English-language press back in 2017. Foreign-language tv shows were the thing there for a hot minute a couple of years ago and Valkyrien was one of them.

So anyway, Temple is being raved about now. Personally, based on the first episode alone, imma go head and say Valkyrien's better. YMMV

Mr Robot

They left it too long. And strung it out too long in season 2-3. Season 4 feel kinda orphaned now.

Also I think episode 4 is a fakeout of some kind, a la It's A Wonderful Robot or something. Too much dicking around with classics

The Mandalorian

Boring. Supposed to be a western but it's a stupid puppet show with people and a terminator. No one cares about a terminator in a stupid puppet show. That's what Star Wars does to good ideas.

His Dark Materials

Boring. Supposed to be a condemnation of organised religion but they underplay the relationship between people and daemons so hard the daemons look like random pets when the inestimable value of the relationship between person and daemon is supposed to be a major driver of the horror and vitality of this fantasy.

Mr Robot

Not boring, but near to it just by virtue of how anticlimactic all the action and revelation has become, even in episode 7.

Started watching this:

Twin Peaks ACTUALLY EXPLAINED (No, Really)

That could take some of the fun out of it.

Could do. But I'm finding it's adding a layer of meaning. The explanation is far less about in-show spoilers, which would be boring, and far - four hours far - more a thesis about how the story was constructed and what story it therefore becomes. I'm pacing myself in watching it through though. I'm 2 hours into the explanation and coincidentally eight episodes into a rewatch of seasons one and two.
