I like this seasons new show The Rookie, this season has been very uneven. The season finale was a good example of this. It could have been so much better, but it was a strange disorganized episode. The weird wedging of Nolan’s love life in the middle of the crisis was bizarre. The same with Lopez’s relationship. I hope the show finds a better groove next season.
John Legere (T-Mobile) had promised to shake up TV. This is nothing but the same old expensive TV bundle. $90 per month and $10 per month per connected TV.
Krypton S01E02 - House of El Show more
The show runners really aren’t into slow burn, this episode moved along at quite a quick pace and moved the season along at Mach speed. I think one of the things that still bugs me about the show is that Seg-El is not a dude that I particularly like. Maybe he will get better and mature over this season, but he is too hot-headed and impulsive to be likable.
I do like Jayna-Zod though. She is awesome. So is Adam Strange and Kem.
I just finished watching the pilot for Krypton. It was added this week to DC Universe. The pilot was interesting and the production values were impressive for a TV show. The premise of the show is also really interesting, along with the villain that was introduced. I was not wowed by the show, but I will keep watching to see how the season fares.
DC Universe will let you try its exclusive shows for free.
Is it really cord-cutting when all you're doing is paying the same people a little less money for about the same amount of content?
Whiskey Cavalier is fun pulpy TV.
I discovered For the People on ABC this last Friday via their second season premiere. I found the first season on Hulu and now I am bingeing through the first season because it expires on Hulu in 13 days. I am enjoying the show because it has a cast of interesting characters which offsets the somewhat rote courthouse drama.
Doom Patrol continues to be awesomely entertaining. I finished watching Puppet Patrol (S01E03) and it finds the right balance of comedy, drama, gore and action.
I do wish that DC would figure out that dropping the f-bomb doesn’t make a show edgier. In both Doom Patrol and Titans, there are too many f-bombs.
Still, Doom Patrol is what Titans should have been: A focused show that is engaging and entertaining with memorable characters.
I’m watching NBC’s new show The Enemy Within and all I keep thinking is of Joker asking: “Why so serious?”
I am finishing this pilot episode just to see how it goes, but I don’t think I will be sticking around for more. The show is not very entertaining because of its self-seriousness.
The ending was predictable.
Whiskey Cavalier is a better take on the whole FBI-CIA genre.
