Thread: teevee sucks

    Bojack Horseman, S6. This is to be the final season on Netflix, which is probably a good thing. I didn't care for Season 5 that much, though all the prior is very good stuff.

    Also started S2 of End of the F***ing World. I was surprised and delighted by S1, so have high hopes for this one.
    The Rules
    Copper- behave toward others to elicit treatment you would like (the manipulative rule)
    Gold- treat others how you would like them to treat you (the self regard rule)
    Platinum - treat others the way they would like to be treated (the PC rule)

    Mandalorian started off a lot stronger than I was expecting. Gonna be an adjustment going back to weekly releases though.

    I am watching a reality TV show that is entirely rigged and at the same time incredibly interesting. The show is called 'It's a man's world'. The participants are 6 women in a female team and 6 men in a male team. They do challenges that result in extra benefits and 'life rules'. Production makes certain that the the winners are pre-ordained. The benefits and rules nudge the groups towards a reversal of male female relations.

    It's strangely compelling. Nixonville, Redfordations, Nostalgia pills, and squid pro quo? Jeremy Irons is great as Dr. Manhattan so I'll keep watching...

    I did not share everyone else's love of Leftovers, so I was skeptical, but Watchmen is turning out to be pretty good so far. But I also thought the same about Leftovers at this point in the series, so we'll see what happens.

    I activated another trial subscription of HBO (and will probably just take a month of it) for His Dark Materials. I'm pretty happy with how that's going, though the budget-induced lack of daemons on screen is a bit disappointing. I was also happy with the movie though, and that seemed to cause a lot of anger in HDM fans, so my standards might be lower.

    Tried to see the first ep last night but was interrupted. Disappointed they revealed the true nature of their relationship in, like, the first scene. I don't like McAvoy, and I don't think he's right for this role, but I love the books so much that I'll watch this show anyway, as soon as I'm able think Nicole Kidman's performance was better tbh.

    I loved Leftovers.

    Started episode 1 of His Dark Materials and fell asleep half way through. I don't know what you mean by lack of daemons on screen. I saw them. The Golden Compass film was flipping terrible.

    Finished the 1st half of Bojack Horseman S6. It was good, looking forward to the conclusion of the series.

    I'm being totally sucked in by Shtisel. A series about a haredi family. It's funny how easy it is to understand Yiddish.

    Watchmen, caught up to episode 7:

    Spoiler:
    So we're about to get some big blue dong, right? I doubt HBO would have been interested in the series without it. There better be some 4k shots of the big blue schlong that terrorized Vietnam, or I'm cancelling.
