Whoa, not having played TLoU that season finale went hardcore all of a sudden. Joel went back to John Wick mode from the last ep and just stayed there.

Yeah it didnt really ramp the stakes up as they got closer, it just ramped then and there.
I think they needed more eps it felt compressed with the special/flashback eps taking up a big chunk.

With the game the ending worked because you'd invested hours killing your way to the hospital, and the fight to the doc really felt earned.


Other notes - Poker Face, didnt like the pilot, or the leads shtick particularly much but the singular eps that followed.. the mini stories, acting, cinematography etc top notch.

Also Shadow + Bone - boom s2 straight back into it. Witcher Bone take note, thats how you make corny teen fantasy stories not shit.

TLoU

The Fireflies fucked up big time. They were obviously fixated and didn't stop to actually try and verify what they thought might work. No sense killing the one possible cure on hope and hypothesis.

And they literally recognise that Joel is hyper-capable, then try send him on his way against his wishes.

Yeah, it felt really quick. I think that is some of the issue with shorter seasons. I think they were meant to have been together for close to a year (maybe 10 months when trying to look online), but it doesn't give the feeling of that.

And then suddenly in the last episode, he goes full on.

On the flip, surely the doctors would do a whole lot more testing and everything first.

Yeah, it's great. The acting is so good, so is the pacing. I like the addition of Patrick Gibson, it's unfortunate The OA got canned.

They put a 'ranga in the directors chair again...

Just when Capulet vs Montague was getting a bit fishy, Jack Black and Lizzo do a duet and go all CSI with Doc Brown claiming the Wall-E paradox was justification for GLadOS, but then it all turns out Ok and there is a fight and balance returns to the galaxy.

Not a bad filler ep.

This is the way.

I didnít have a CSI meets Mad Hatter episode with Lizzo knighting Grogu next to Jack Black while Christopher Lloyd tried to take over a planet through nanodroids, all topped off with a fishy Romeo and Juliet subplot, on my bingo cards for this week.

Yeah, it was good fun. Had some of the cheese that was common in The Clone Wars.

I'm surprised I didn't click that Din would hand over the Darksaber. They did a pretty good job of showing how Bo was proficient with it while Din struggled.

I am about halfway through the Amazon miniseries adaptation of The Stand, and it's kinda... meh. Not great, not terrible. I was worried, because the book is right up there for me. Bonus points for casting against type by having Amber Heard play a backstabbing psycho bitch who manipulates men with her attractiveness to get what she wants.

One thing that really shits me though, is the writers just got Flagg and his Las Vegas totally wrong. So wrong I wonder if they actually read the book at all.

New Kiefer Sutherland series Rabbit/Hole wasn't great. Feels like a blend of 24 x NCIS.

Your a blip.

I feel pretty mixed about seeing the franchise being bent to the canon of the last trilogy.

But Andor shows there's payoff in taking the good with the bad. And there's plenty to like about The Mandalorian. I mean, the Armourer? Bo-Katan? Paz Vizsla? So cool. Carl Weathers is doing some great work too.

And of course cheeky Pedro Pascal having the time of his life.

With a property so behemoth, it's gotta take a turn here and there.

I'm not really a Star Wars apologist. I hate the copyright environment it rests on.

Andor could have been not set in the SW universe and been ok. The Mandalorian has had some up's and down's...not really sure where it's going right now other than super popular so need to write some episodes fast!

As for the new movies, not feeling like watching anything new with SW as anything other than home on Disney+

Bosch: Legacy is still worth a watch too, not quite as good as Bosch but still worth your time.

"The Devil's Hour" on Prime was a good long-weekend supernatural crime thriller miniseries. With Peter Capaldi and Jessica Blaine you could almost imagine it being a superdark Doctor Who storyline.

Anyway, recommended

Gah...sounds terrible.

I have zero expectations from the SWU these days, my childhood was ruined progressively by Disney and I have zero hope that's going to change.

and I thought I heard Temuera's dulcet tones in there.

But probably just stock vocals from the Skywalker sound "Clones dying" library.

And just for Ab, compulsory giant monster.

Some unanswered questions - did the TIE Interceptors take out the fleet...

It was all downhill from the halfway mark, and ended terrible.

I figure Axe manages to get word to the fleet, probably in some last minute theatrics.

Bad baby! No squeezies! 😄

So many great shots and sequences in that episode. Like the descent and ascent through the atmosphere of Mandalore.

Ok, have to revise my take on this now I'm 4 ep's in. It's actually starting to get fairly interesting.

Obviously a massive narrative on modern society but starting to hit its paces.

The Last Kingdom series on Netflix got a movie send off. I really enjoyed the series and it didn't lose it's way like Vikings. If you liked the series you'll like the movie.

I was a bit worried we were going to get an ESB cliffhanger ending with major character deaths. But in the end it was more RoTJ with a nice bit of closure. It could probably stop there. But it won't.
