    I think I or someone else mentioned Halt and Catch Fire earlier in this thread (or maybe another). I really loved the show. Won't say anything else.

    I am watching Punisher season 2. Punisher guy is nowhere near as good as Thomas Jane was but I enjoyed the first season and I'm actually enjoying the second season more so far (only a few episodes into it). Probably because a lot of stuff "is" happening vs watching a lot of stuff that "did" happen in the past.

    For anyone that likes the Thomas Jane Punisher I always recommend looking up Punisher Dirty Laundry on YouTube. Jane reprises the role and it's only about 11 minutes if I remember right. Too bad he didn't get a sequel. Punisher TV show is trying to be too realistic. It works, it's good, but it takes away something to provide something it couldn't otherwise. Most of the Netflix Marvel shows suffer/benefit from the same thing.

    This Punisher is an enjoyable show, but the character is basically just an invincible killing machine meathead. I liked Tom Jane's Punisher (dirty laundry as well) and I really liked his character in The Expanse (which I highly recommend).

    I've only finished three episodes of Punisher season two, but I like it better than season 1. Frank Castle seems to have embraced who he is. In Daredevil S2 he was the Punisher, then he gave it up until the very end of Punisher S1, now he's back in S2.

    Netflix is super dumb, because the show has been hiding Billy Russo's face (which I assumed was super mangled) for the first few episodes. We finished episode 3, then stopped to go to bed. But before we get to see Russo's face in the show, they show it (quite unmangled) in the image preview for the next episode, BEFORE you watch the episode. As in, you have to see it in order to select the episode. Duuuuuuumb.

    I might have already mentioned in another thread but The Orville has really matured. It's a pretty damn good show. A recent episode even managed to evoke some Star Wars nostalgia from me from the action in certain scenes. The Rookie has also turned out to be really good and NBC seems to have a really good show with The Enemy Within. We've slowly been working our way through Hanna. That's pretty good as well.

    They've finally cancelled Lethal Weapon which is what I've been waiting for to see what they did with the show after after killing Riggs. I didn't want to help prevent cancellation by adding even just one more viewer.

    Surprisingly, Agents of Shield is renewed. I haven't watched that for a few years now. To think of it, there are tons of Marvel shows out there I haven't seen yet. It's actually amazing how many they have.

    I was giving a few of the CW DC shows a shot but it was way too LGBTQLMNOP heavy for me. I really have no problem with gay story lines, my wife and I pretty religiously watch Grey's Anatomy, but the Arrow-verse (plus and especially Supergirl) was just too heavy handed and condescending for me.

    I link this as an example of this new trend of Youtube 'video essays' ripping off Every Frame a Painting.

    So much of this video is meh. I think the only thing he pointed out which I remember from my two-episode stint of this show was the use of wide-angle lenses. The rest is just screenwriting 101 or the most banal praise of vague aspects of the show. I guess it garners clicks from people who already like the show and want their opinions confirmed..

    I really liked the movie this is based on, but I don't have time to watch the show.The movie felt pretty bloated so I'm curious how the show compares.

    I don't remember the movie very well at all but I'm pretty sure they went in a pretty different direction. This first season of Hanna is only eight episodes so it was easy to get through an episode at a time over a relatively short period. Binge watchers can do it in a day.
