TV catch up

April 13, 2018

My God.

It’s like I’ve been eating nothing but frozen chicken nuggets for the last six months. I mean, I like watching Flash and Supergirl, but they’ve both settled into their grooves and they’re not, like, earthshattering or anything. Rebels is great but it’s animated and sometimes I want more. Jessica Jones season 2 has been flat at best. I can’t even remember what other TV I’ve been watching.

Then I watched the new episodes of The Expanse and Legion.

Filet Mignon, perfectly cooked.

So damned beautiful. Like, they’re paying attention to the framing and the design and how it all comes together, and it’s got hooks and zing, and they’re showing me things I’ve never seen before.

As a fan of the books, I’ve been waiting for that Bobbie and Avasarala escape scene for years. Blasting off in the racing pinnace? So great I can hardly stand it. And now we’re going to Io? Yayayayayayayayay!!!

And Legion. There’s never been anything like this. I love it.

Hell yes.

    Just saw the new “Lost in Space” at least the 15 minutes of it. We changed the channel and won’t be back. So sad, I was really looking forward to it.

    Legion is sort of losing me; it puts too much effort into being trippy without driving the story forward. Maybe my thinking’s too linear or limited.
    The Expanse is awesome as usual. The interaction and evolving/devolving relationships between characters is so much fun to watch. There are so many strong and interesting personalities that you can’t be certain exactly where things are going to go, even if you’ve read the books (a couple of years ago).
