    We have different tastes. I thought the first season was super fun. Like season one Arrow fun.

    I need to get back onto that one. I got about halfway but the ridiculously bad animation just turned me off. I read that season two they greatly improved it

    The animation isnt typical, but I wouldn't call it bad at all. It's like watching a video game. And the show is written a lot like a JRPG, which suits it.

    I expect more from what I watch than a ps2 cut scene in today's age. I liked the story.

    I couldn't stand the animation.

    Felt like the production value wasn't there compared to season 1, but otherwise imo your review is spot on. Concentrating everything on one world - doubly that we already spent time there - felt more constricting. But the story was still good, it was tighter, had a nice twist ending. I liked Mackie as well, though publicly it seems people are dogging him and saying they thought Kinnaman was better, but ugh he felt wooden and too laid back for most of it.

    I have no idea how people thought Kinnaman was better. I thought he was terrible in the first season. By far the least interesting and competent actor and I am including Martha Higareda, who looking at her IMDB page it looks like English is her second language.

    I didn't think about it but you are right. It did feel more constricting than the first season.

    I also missed Quellcrist Falconer's TEDx talks.

    It's on Spotify now and I listened to the first episode earlier today. I love these guys and miss this show. I plan on listening to all future episodes.

    Picked up watching The Expanse during this quarantine. Started a little slowly, but it's gotten pretty good and interesting. The one that kind of gets me is the accents though - they are absolutely ALL OVER the place, it almost becomes distracting. Still, the acting is otherwise solid, the plot is interesting. It has enough easy "guess what's next" to alleviate the overall mystery and keep you engaged. Good stuff for sci-fi lovers.

    I’m watching Scream Queens. The character Chad Radwell reminds me so much of one of my good friends. His mannerisms and the way he speaks are dead on.

    The Outers/Belters accent is really hard, always think it sounds similar to, or based on, Afrikaans. I love that they've authentically created an accent for people who have lived away from Earth for a long time...but it does take having to keenly listen, and sometime put the subtitles on, to pick up what they're saying!

    The leader guy, Dawes ... it's like he can't decide if he wants to be Russian or Scottish lol. Then there are the Martian Aussies, the Martian Cowboy and the Brit lady. It's just everywhere haha. Good show though, having fun with it, just getting to end of season 2 I think.

    Been watching Brews Brothers on Netflix. new comedy about running a brewery, but with humor similar to The League. I've been loving it, but maybe because my pipe dream is to open a brewery.

    I am four episodes into The Midnight Gospel. It is interesting. I recommend watching it without knowing anything about it.

    Westworld - The cinematography and music this season were fantastic but the story was so-so. I either don't like Aaron Paul or he's a bad actor. I can't figure it out.

    You're the Worst- I'm enjoying this one so far. I'm only on episode 2 of season 2.

    Atlanta's Lost and Missing Children - I still need to watch the last episode but it seems like a rare miss for HBO.

    Zero zero zero on Amazon is fantastic. Makes Narcos look lame in comparison.
