Severance. Started watching this last week. Just two episodes left. Such an unusual watch and really gets you thinking.

Slow, slow pace, which I normally hate, but it works so well for this show. And while the pace of the show is slow, the hour just flies by!! IT goes so quick that sometimes I can't believe that the episode is over.

As I said, two episodes left, the pressure is mounting. I am really looking forward to seeing what happens next.

The Deuce

Binged all three seasons over the weekend. Excellent series about porn/prostitution in an area of New York throughout the 70/80s. Lots of parallels can be drawn with 'The Wire' as the same writers and some of the same cast.

Man vs Bee.

Quite stressful yet kinda amusing.

Amusing and easy to watch 10min episodes...probably because no-one could watch it in one go without being on edge. :D

- Season 3 of Blacklist. Good show.
- Season 3 of The Boys. Love it, although I feel like some of the episodes could be trimmed by 10 minutes.
- Season 4 of Stranger Things. When it's good, it's very good. There's some bits I don't like though.
- Season 4 of Riverdale. First two episodes were normal and then episode 3 was just 'lmao' mental.

I’m really looking forward to this. As they’re just 10+- minute episodes I would have envisaged just binging the lot - have read a couple of reviews that say it would be better suited as a movie?

Yeah I reckon it isn't a movie due to the anxiety it creates. :p

It kinda works as episodes as you can watch each 'mishap' in a separate chapter if that makes sense. Otherwise it ends up being too chaotic.

Started watching The Shining Girls only seen the first episode so far.

Seems like a murder detective/reporter thriller at the moment, but is quite disorientating. Looks decent though.

EDIT: A good few episodes in now. This has gotten pretty good. It feels familiar. I'm wondering if there's been a film other series based on the book.

After remembering the 70's cartoon Battle of the Planets in a recent nostalgia thread on here I went and sought out the original Japanese Gatchaman series that BotP was a cut-down sanitised version of for kids. I am not disappointed, it is much more adult in theme and the stories make alot more sense as when comparing them to the BotP versions it really is quite remarkable how much of the narrative was changed to make it a kids show. I still have massive nostalgic memories of BotP, but now seeing how it should have been as Gatchaman I think it still holds up today, despite it being 50 god damn years old this year.
