Just started Sweet Tooth season 3. It's blrak apolyptic despair wrapped up in a hazy, surreal fairytale covering. Don't know how to explain without spoiling it, but I recommend.

Season 2 felt like work to me by the end. :(

Scavenger's Reign was so far out there, I almost gave up after a couple of episodes.

Finished it today and want season 2. Unique, disturbing, and bat-shit crazy.

I'm not usually a fan of animated stuff, but animation was the perfect choice for this.

Guilty pleasure.

I am rewatching "Person of Interest" for the nth time. IMHO the best TV Series of all time.

Dark Matter on Apple TV is GREAT.

Explores the whole multiverse and different realities. On that same subject, "Everything, everywhere all at once" on Netflix is pretty good too

Saw the first three episodes of the Boys. The first episode starts a little slow, but episodes two and three really gets things rolling. But the real truth is that they need to start wrapping things up or start upping the stakes. I love the show, but I'm getting a little tired of the team being pushed to the wall, only to escape by skin of its teeth.
Also, HOTD in a few days.

The shock value is gone. First two seasons were some of the most fucked up things I have seen in a series.
I'll get to it at some point.

Been watching Pennyworth, the story of Alfred the Butler for Batman. Season three I believe. Not loving this one and I think they are done. Actor, Jack Bannon does a great young Michael Caine voice. Too many side stories in season three. The Boys and Pennyworth are good to watch while doing cardio on the elliptical.

Wife and I watching "Man in Full", 6 part series based on the 1998 novel by Tom Wolf. This was 11 years after he wrote "Bonfire of the Vanities" which was a very cool novel. That was made into a movie which did not really capture it well.

Man in Full is well acted and produced. No doubt its flawed. The novel took place about 25 years ago when Atlanta was rising as a regional financial power and the newly minted money was very southern. It captures some of this in modern day but its a bit overdone. Which also makes it fun btw! Some tough scenes and two side stories of two social struggles. That its limited to 6 episodes is appealing for wife and I. she goes to bed earlier than I and we don't watch much TV so it takes a long time to get thru things.

Lastly Im watching Shogun on Hulu which I like. It's not an americanized version and I enjoyed the context of the time, the era and influence of European powers at that time. Very nice production and acting! It slows down and they get into the typical soap opera stuff of sex, power, and legacy which I get is part of the story, but it bogs it down a bit. I never read the novel to compare treatments. I did like Tom Cruise's movie years ago.

Wife and I started it together then she bailed. She is an avid reader. If a series does not hold her she will bail. I tend to finish it.

Always knew Ser Criston Cole was a munch. Homeboy be going to town. S2 E1 was solid. Cream Stark has a reputation as a bad ass and the actor they cast kind of pulls it off.
