What are you looking forward to returning?

Just watched The Stand (Amazon Prime), the latest remake of the awesome Stephen King novel. It was really good! If you have read the book or like King-esque horror in general, post-apocalyptic sci-fi-ish, good-vs-evil-with-religious-overtones, it is worth a watch.

Not as truly terrifying or scary as I recall the novel being but they did a really great job capturing the core of the story.

oh s*** and we just started watching WandaVision on Disney+ - spinoff of the Marvel Cinematic Universe feat. Scarlet Witch and Vision. Only a few eps in but it is trippy af and really interesting so far - very very different to the usual round of TV. Check it out if you're into MCU.

Might be a bit late, but did anyone check out Lower Decks? I was really surprised with how good it was.

Also another animated comedy from the Regular Show team - Close Enough (adult) is really super-funny.

If you're into anime at all, Demon Slayers is really, really good. But super-violent and dark, so don't let your kids watch it.

Finished watching WandaVision today and was really happy with the series. It moved the main MCU canon along and wasn't the usual cookie cutter superhero fare. Given that Disney didn't f*** up this or Mando, I have high hopes for the s*** tonne of Marvel and Star Wars TV they have queued up.

The Boys is one of my favourite TV shows at the moment and I'm thirsty as f*** for season 3. Its a brutal story of what a real world with corporate-backed superheroes would be like.

Resident Alien is absurd and hilarious and also just plain fun sci-fi. Its totally carried by Alan Tudyk who is perfectly cast for the titular role's often deadpan delivery.

Superman & Lois is enjoyable and I'm pleased to see another season has been given the nod. Its way better than the also-Arrowverse Supergirl show and probably the best Superman TV or movie content I've seen in years. I would have obviously preferred Cavill as Kal but you get what you're given, and Tyler Hoechlin is doing a fine job as big blue.

The Watch while not as true to Pratchett's Discworld novels as I would like is still good fun fantasy TV. That said its inspired by Terry's works and not a true take; avoid if you're a massive fanboy of the books and can't handle character forks and changes; for example the Patrician is a *gasp* woman!

I watch Batwoman with the missus because she likes it but its a f***en struggle. Beats Grey's Anatomy though so there's that.

Snowpiercer is not bad and I watch it every week, I just find the premise hard to accept and I'm usually pretty forgiving of this sort of thing. Why can't the f*****g train ever stop? Why can't the fancy pants Eternal Engine heat everything while its at rest?! Unfortunately that isn't the only glaring logic hole like this that you have to just accept, there's also a sprinkling of MacGuffins, character choices and narrative holes that don't make a lot of sense.

Obviously everyone is waiting for a new Witcher series too, if you haven't watched it yet get on it.

Definite love for The Boys, surprisingly I actually don't watch many if any comic book adaptations but that's one of my faves for sure. Watching Snowpiercer too, and I'm not sure why... maybe because it's sci-fi. Other than that I haven't seen much new stuff recently, gave up on The Stand remake after two episodes. That said I recently re-watched Battlestar Galactica... holds up for the most part.

I have tried super hard to get into this but find I just stop watching :( I am a huge Pratchett fanboy (in fact since starting the show I started a huge binge re-read, finished all the Watch & Witches books & onto Death now and LOVING IT SO MUCH) and the differences don't bother me too much, but it just feels like a mismash of too much random s***. I started E5 last night after a couple weeksoff and it feels like there's a billion new plot points going on and I have no idea.

I'm super bummed because I was sooo looking forward to it. I quite like the style and I think Vimes is great, but there's too many random weird changes. I don't mind the Patrician. But why is Carrot a fussy busybody jerk instead of the wholesome good guy? Why is Cheery not a dwarf? Where are Colon and Nobbs? This could have been an HBO series that ran until the END OF TIME

I 100% agree trog, and I'm struggling to watch it (oh god the puns) too.

Apparently Cheery is a full sized dwarf ('we come in all sizes') because budgets which kind of blows. I think someone somewhere decided to 'flesh out' Carrot's character and completely missed the point that he is supposed to be an archetypical cardboard stereotype. I somehow missed the absence of Colon and Nobbs and that's just f***en unacceptable.

I'm also at about the same point in the series, have e06 queued but I'm not motivated to continue despite naming myself Hogfather a couple of decades ago. Its like all the components of a decent surreal take on the Discworld are there but something is just wrong.

+1 for schitts creek currently working through that.

Looking forward to watching the last episodes of vikings.

The Many Saints of Newark should be out later this year too if you were a Sopranos fan.

I just watched Party Down, a short-lived and largely forgotten comedy series from 2010 or so. Stars Adam Scott from Parks n Rec fame and seemingly every comedic actor ever does cameos.

Only 2 seasons, would recommend.

Edit: +1 for The Boys, how good is it!

Someone put me onto Monkey Money Heist the other day and we're slowly plugging through it. Really enjoying it, although kinda feels like it maybe could have been condensed into a single season (just started S2 and feeling a bit draggy already, although each ep is pretty exciting in itself)

My tip is to quit after the conclusion of the heist. I am halfway through the reunion and it is really not going well. I am not sure if it ramps up, but so far it's been a slog.

I love all the bella ciao tributes from that show though.
