High Fidelity

I watched this show even though I don't normally give the time of day to a series that is one-and-done against its will. The main character is a self-admitted unlikeable person, but I sure do love all the music references--some of which are Prince. 3.5/5

Star Trek:Discovery (finally) 2.5/5 it'll stay that way even if half of each episode wasn't in it's annoying version of klingon, forced to read subtitles. Perhaps it's a genius move you have to watch the screen the entire show to have a clue what's going on. If S2 doesn't draw me in I think I'll be done with it.

SO!

Now that i have finally gotten to the beginning of the last season of 'How I Met Your Mother', i can honestly say that it was a pleasant and detailed "trip". biggrin

If we are scoring from 5, i would give it a 5.

If we are scoring from 100, i would give it a 94.54.

i've been watching over the last 2 years as my "gotobinge".

...i'm afraid that i have to see the end soon eek sad

Fosse/Verdon - 3.5 stars out of 4.

This was well done and interesting for a fan like me f their work together. Can't say that the series made me admire them as people though,which probably wasn't the point. I have always thought highly of Michelle Williams, who shines here.

I May Destroy You - Season 1

I like that it's a spotlight on the Black British community in London which you don't see much on screen. There are many nuanced characters here with the heroes exposing their flaws and the villains generating sympathy. But ultimately, it's an incredibly intense series about surviving and moving on. 4.5/5

This has been huge in the UK. I haven't seen it yet, but it's on my list.

What new information can these filmmakers tell us in this 6-part docu-series that we don't already know? Especially having seen countless dramatizations, books (Bugliosi's "Helter Skelter" being the go to bible) countless news exposés up to and including Tarantino's revisionist "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"? Turns out...NOTHING! The "fresh take" was in interviewing "Family" members who were not directly involved in any of the murders but talked about what it was like to be in that particular cult at that particular time. They had snippets of older audio inteviews with some of the murderers including Manson - but it's really all well-treaded ground. Probably the creepiest element was the audio of Bobby Beausoleil recalling the murder of Gary Hinman with utter detachment and a complete lack of empathy - like he was talking about what he ate for dinner the night before.

2.5/5

*note* I will say that the doc made Tarantino's depiction of life at Spawn Ranch and the general attitude of the Manson Family seem pretty accurate.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Season 7

I liked the first half of the season more with the time traveling through different eras. The characters' exits in the series finale was very nice as well. When more superpowers were introduced in the second half is when I think the show faltered a little. 3.5/5

The Sopranos (1999 - 2007)


Watching it in real time was a different experience than watching it now. Having the perspective of time and age have made this show even better to me. Now I can see that it wasn't only one aspect that made this great. It was a combination of the acting, the writing, casting and directing that put it on another level.

James Gandolfini was the obvious star and he has received his rightful share of accolades but after another viewing it's Edie Falco who was the real standout from an acting perspective. Lorraine Bracco and the brilliant Nancy Marchand who played Olivia "Livia" Soprano were both great as well.

Just an amazing journey of a show that holds up well because of the craftmanship by all who were a part of making it.

The Vow 3/5 I just started watching it. All these groups that prey on people's, idk it isn't spiritual but it rooted in the same place, sense of purpose? They prey at all kinds of levels.
The Vow is an American true crime documentary series revolving around the cult NXIVM and its leader Keith Raniere
NXIVM is a self-described American multi-level marketing company based near Albany, New York, which offers personal and professional development seminars through its "Executive Success Programs".

I love me some Michaela Coel, This show opened my eyes to some things. Here I was thinking I was just sitting on the sidelines observing.
