Not really whiplash as much as just weird because they don't really do the serious scenes in a way any more serious than they would in the original show but there's an extra layer or irony over everything. It's just weird.

At cormacaroni's suggestion, I am watching Ted Lasso on AppleTV+
It's well-edited, well-shot, and charming. I also laughed aloud several times.

Haven't yet started Ted Lasso, but I just finished Long Way Up and enjoyed it a fair bit, maybe even more than the previous two series.  The captured visuals were fantastic, and it probably helps that using electric bikes kind of forced Charlie and Ewan to set aside time to take more detours to interesting people and places.

We watched Julia Davis comedy Sally4Ever. I don't think she should be allowed to make tv shows. Nobody needs to see a woman giving a guy a blowjob while he shits on her in front of his wife and child, or Sean Bean and beds full of puke and shit. It's upsetting.

Utopia (UK) was top notch, loved the colour palette too and kind of disappointed there won't be a third season.

Don't think I'll bother with the Amazon/US adaption.

I'm up to the final episode of The Undoing on Prime Video... it's OK, feels like an extended, more drawn out, Law and Order episode though.

The US version is - at best - superfluous, and if you need more discincentive is cancelled anwyay, so its a one season and done with things that will never be resolved.

Got around to the Euphora special. Was nice. Some good acting chops and the dialogue in this show during monologues feels kinda good Sorkin-ish.

I do hope Covid doesn't fuck this show. That they were a week away from shooting S2 when it got shut down and who knows when it'll get restarted sucks for a new show that has a lot of stuff going for it.

Looking forward to the second special.

Finally getting around to Locke and Key. It's surprisingly suspenseful -- and dark -- for what feels like should be a YA novel.

The comic is really good (its written by Stephen Kings kid) but I skipped the adaptation because of its YA vibes, and the lack of hype meaning it might be another of those Netflix never-finishers

Yeah, I looked into that as well. It strikes me as funny that Stephen King’s son, if asked about his heritage, would claim he “is only joking.“

The story all very much feels like Harry Potter as written by Stephen King.

Oh.

Disney dissolved the studio working on it this month (Fox 21 / Touchstone Television.)

Joss is also being slow-motion #cancelled by Ray Fischer and was attached too.

Hmmmmmmmm, maybe this YA-fied show version?

I didn't watch the show, but the comic is super grim dark edgy. I liked it but it definitely was borderline too edgy Mark Miller-ish for me. I've read a few things from Joe Hill and I'm not a fan of his writing style. I thought Horns was kind of fun/interesting, but mostly the movie because Daniel Radcliff rocks.

As part of the streamlining of studio operations, Disney will fold Touchstone Television, previously known as Fox 21 Television Studios. Bert Salke, longtime head of that unit, will leave the company, transitioning into a producer deal.

Hmm guess I can finally get into this now.

I remember when S1 came out people were pretty down on this coming from the books as an adaptation. It looks big budget and I like the cast, but that killed any interest. Haven't heard anything about S2 at all.

Several crew members on the set of Lionsgate’s “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” at the CBS Radford lot in Studio City — which reported that at least one dozen workers had tested positive — were livid with show creator and star Rob McElhenney after he sent a message to the staff saying, “There remains ZERO evidence of any transmission at work,” insisting that “our set continues to be one of the safest places you can be outside of your homes.”

I quite liked season 2. I read the first two books when they came out but only sort of half remember the big plot points, so idk if they are doing a good job at adapting it, but its been consistently entertaining imo. The low point probably being in season 1 where the different plot lines took a bit to cohere into one story. also given that the anti-religious sentiments of the series becomes much more blatant in S2 it is a show that benefits tremendously from watching on a streaming site with a comment section:

Been watching Alice in Bordeland and Sweet Home.

Former is really fun, if you like that high concept sci fi style Manga (think Death Note, Gantz etc) and it's well thought out in that context.
You get your usual overacting and drama, but the pace is incredible and it's well thought out in that sense.

Latter is a Korean show with a structure similar to Rec, people locked in a building with zombies.
It's kind of mediocre and also filled with Asian melodrama, but of much lower quality than Alice.
the monsters are kind of creative though, and not just regular zombies, and that kind of makes it worth a watch.

Both on Netflix.

Alice is a must watch so far (only 3 or 4 episodes in) Sweet Home is take it or leave it.

I tried getting into this show (was on episode 3 or 4) and it *is* shot incredibly well with good acting, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was Degrassi with higher production. I can’t suspend my belief for long enough to believe that *everyone* is going through some controversial, modern-day shit.

Alice in Borderlands, i can confirm was fun throughout, looking forward to Season 2.

Sweet Home, on  the contrary, is dog shit, don't bother.
Some of the worst directing and editing i've seen in a while, on top of a garbage script, no wonder it came from a webcomic.

I've started Succession, first couple eps are a little hard to get through but then you see the dynamics click into place and it's great. I love Brian Cox in anything ("SOMEONE WILL FINISH WHAT I STARTED! ONE DAY, WOLVERINE!!!") and Macaulay Culkin's brother Kieran is just amazing every time he's on-screen. On episode 7 and things have gotten juicy.

In a better world, Avasarala would be as popular as Tyrion from GoT.

Watched the first couple of episodes of WandaVision, and unless they're really committing to the bit and the entire series never deviates from telling its story entirely through genre conventions, they're basically padding shit out for subs, because I've seen a few shows where people are "trapped in a TV show" that hit the exact same fucking story beats across multiple examples all within a single 45 minute episode.
