Currently watching Batman the animated and Blood of Zeus. A western anime.
@DEVILinIRON: How far into Blood of Zeus are you? I think I made it about half way and stopped for some reason. I like Greek mythology. Are you enjoying it? I'm wondering if I should finish it.
Not gonna lie, I kind of enjoy the Netflix anime.
As for what I am watching, I'm revisiting Justice League: Unlimited. It's a lot of fun. Just wholesome DC superhero stuff, and you get to see the core Justice League but also a lot of the other folks too, which is fun. A lot of adult humor in there, plus frankly some mature themes.
Bad Batch and X-files.
Thanks for reminding me. I need to finish Bad Batch. You been enjoying it? I think I got through episode 2 or whatever episode had them back on Kamino and meeting the girl.
TV-wise not much. I watched an episode of X-Files here, DS9 there. I was re-watching them awhile back but never finished them. I'm on the last seasons for both and will put one on when I'm extremely bored and need some noise. I've been watching JCS's videos on YouTube. I just came across some of his unlisted stuff and will quickly go through those.
Edit: Forgot about Loki. Not bad. Might check out the other ones on Disney+.
pushed through with wandavision last week, one of those "put it on in the background whilst on the laptop" things. first few episodes make no sense but then all of a sudden shit starts to make sense and it gets much much better. it's really quite clever, there's some serious creative talent at marvel. brave decision to make it like they did because the first episode was a huge turnoff to me and i'm sure many others too. giving it a second chance was purely because i couldn't think of anything else to put on. sure if i went back and watched the first few episodes again i'd pick up on a lot more. but cba with that.
other than that i'm looking for another tv drama series. watched the wire for the first time a few months ago and it was incredible. probably the best tv series i've ever seen. looking for something to fill the void, considering game of thrones or sopranos. tomorrow war's just dropped on prime which may be their answer to netflix's army of the dead. will give that a watch too
@mrbojangles25: It's not quite Clone Wars good yet, nor is it structured the same, closer to Rebels.
As first seasons go, it is great. About 2 episodes of the 10 shown thus far as duds. The second episode the worst. Huge misstep. But thankfully it gets over that hump.
I wasn't particularly keen on the characters on their Clone Wars appearance, but they are better defined here, albeit filling very obvious tropes.
Omega I can see becoming another Ahsoka. They've done a very good job of making the character develop in such a little time span without the child character itself being annoying.
The production values and technology of the old days are now long gone. It essentially looks consistently like a movie while keeping it in line with the Thunderbird inspired aesthetics.
Story wise, I feel it currently walks too closely to Mandalorian rather than focusing on the rise of The Empire, Clones and Kaminoans, which is far more interesting. Although, the chase story is linked to it.
Suspect that will change as the show develops, but currently it's a straight forward chase story with bits and bobs of original stuff.
One of the best scenes in the show is seeing the first Storm Trooper being led by an Order 66 Clone.
Got a whole backlog of shows, but at moment, I'm currently watching Loki, and Desus and Mero on Showtime. When I want background noise, I've been watching NYPD Blue on Hulu. Waiting for Better Call Saul to return for its final season, but I don't think it's coming back until 2022.
I finished Angel a few days ago. While I enjoyed watching Buffy and Angel since October, it's a relief to no longer have any 43 minute show on my plate. I'm making more regular progress with Maison Ikkoku again and with my rewatch of Samurai Jack, and I started Married with Children. I can watch all three of those shows in one day now now without having my energy drained by a movie and a 43 minute show.
Samurai Jack is even better with this rewatch.
I watched Married with Children only occasionally when I was a kid. I appreciate the snappy, in-your-face humor much more now as an adult.
jules rimet still gleaming...
That's the spirit. It's coming home!
fun fact. i was at the '96 semi-final when southgate missed his pk.
Yeah, it was a devastating defeat :( The Italians have once again screwed us over, like Euro 2012.
Euro 96 was a bit before my time... I have been told England played attractive football.
I must admit, England had a lucky route to the final and it's a shame Southgate could not get past Italy. Southgate needs to stop playing defensively. A lot of people were thrilled that England beat Germany, but I wasn't, Germany are a weakened team and have been like that for the past few years.
@br0kenrabbit: Where is Tour of Duty streaming? I haven't watched it since its initial run on CBS back in the '80s
Not sure it is. I gots the DVDs fro the library. They have the whole set. And they don't charge me. Libraries are the shizznit.
Also if they don't have something I can ask them to get it. I say ask but they always get what I ask for.
@br0kenrabbit: At least I can get them on DVD, so there's that. Reminds me that there was another show on around that time about the Vietnam War through the prospective of military nurses, China Beach. Have to look that up as well.
Ohhh....China Beach. Forgot about that one.
But hey at least MASH is still on TV (MeTV).
Just finished the final season of Bosch. It's a solid cop procedural starring Titus Welliver that ran for seven seasons on Amazon.
Just finished the final season of Mr. Inbetween. Australian series about a hitman that was equal parts dark and funny. Sad to see that one go.
Just finished Loki this week as well.
Still got the last episode of the Steven King adaptation Lisey's Story to watch tonight.
Motherland Fort Salem is in season 2.
Burned through the Apple TV series The Mosquito Coast with Justin Theroux in like a day and a half.
Also enjoying me some Wellington Paranormal. It's cheesy but it has some of that What We Do In The Shadows energy to it.
@Byshop: Wellington Paranormal is from the creators of What We Do in the Shadows; would like to check it out as well, but no cable. Gonna have to wait for it to come up on streaming.
Yeah, it's a spinoff. It has just started here in the US but it's three seasons deep in New Zealand with a fourth on the way.
Haven't watched much TV for a few years now, I can't find anything to watch. I use the Kodi app to watch films. For evening viewing I use iPlayer, Netflix or Amazon to watch stuff, current things I'm watching on and off:
