Finished the first season of "American Gods." Wow.

I enjoyed that, especially Mr Wednesday, but it just seemed to end rather reach a natural stopping point, they never got to Wisconsin after stopping off to see Oestra. very odd.

I'm just hoping that they can match the standard of the first season when it returns for the second series. Apparently the original show-runners quit when Starz didn't meet their demand for a higher budget. Gillian Anderson won't return as "Media," either.

Well it is based on Gaiman's work so the story shouldn't be a problem and I didn't realise it was Gillian Anderson at first so that wont be a problem for me either.
Like you I am hoping for a good conclusion in the second series, and I guess it should probably stop there

Best sitcom on Irish and british tv. Funny as fuck.




Terrific show. The way they brought home the backdrop of the Troubles in the last scene of the last episode of the first series was a real thump in the
stomach.

"Portlandia" really isn't even trying, anymore.

This was really much more than any review could have prepared me for.

Meaning...???

I'm in two minds myself - the cast are amazing, the plot idea is terrific and I really like its no-budget esthetics, but it's also ultraviolent, bleak and unsettling. And it made me feel old and voyeuristic. So much so that I didn't persevere (there are 5 seasons, I just found out :geek: )

Funnier, more clever, more shocking and definitely more bleak than I could have anticipated. It's almost like "Game of Thrones" in that you have to toss out all your preconceptions of what a show of that type should be like. There are no good and bad guys; the characters are all pretty much entirely amoral. I probably won't bother with the later seasons due to key cast member departures.

Yeah, I suppose it's the amorality that really got to me.

I was totally riveted by Robert Sheehan - total eye-candy even for the straight guy I am, but what an appalling character. And I really liked Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, who also shone in Utopia (another great show!). The first 5 characters are in Seasons 1-3, don't know how/if the switch to a new cast could work.

I started season 1 of "The Handmaid's Tale" last night. Pretty compelling, so far.

First two episodes of "Killing Eve" were very promising.
