And I tried for the 4th time to get into The Expanse and bounced off hard. I think I need to give up. I really wanna get into it but it doesn't grab me. I'm broken.

How far have you gotten? When it first started airing on tv I think we were halfway through the first season before it finally clicked for me.

I just finished Haunting of Bly Manor, overall I thought it was pretty mediocre. It's hard to get interested in anyone's death or relationship when none of the characters have any real personality or substance

Finished the last season of Sabrina, overall it was an improvement over the previous season, but still not great. Even though the set and costume people clearly had a lot of fun, it also feels clear that the writers had run out of ideas, itís for the best that it ended now.

I thought it was a generic bad American comedy, but I may have had too high expectations after The Good Place.

Speaking of Ryan Hansen, what happened to that web show where he played himself trying to convince the Veronica Mars cast to make a show with Dick as a private investigator? Is it worth trying to track it down?

It was fine, I wouldn't go to any great effort to find it, but it's worth watching if you are a fan.

Later on he did Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television for youtube, that one is a lot more fun.

Yes. the subs version is much more superior and the story is great fun. I ought to make a thread for it before the second half drops.

Pretty much all the Netflix dubs are bad, they only put the minimum amount of effort into it. Which is fine, because dubbing is almost always dumb unless it's something made for kids.

Debris reminds me a lot of Threshold, an excellent one season show from 2005, though Threshold had a much stronger cast. The first episode was decent, though the preview of the rest of the season seemed more intriguing.

I don't remember Threshold, I kept trying to think of it, but my brain kept reminding me of Surface.

It came out as the same time as Surface and invasion, all three sci fi shows that only lasted a season. Surface got most of the attention but Threshold was the best among the three in my opinion. Among others it had Peter Dinklage and Brent Spiner on the cast.

I have a soft-spot for those lovely, mid-2000s Friday Night dramas...they all ended up being a blend of Lost with a sappy, Grey's Anatomy outro set to some trendy music. Nothing says drama is coming like watching slow-mo shots of all of your characters set to The Strokes...

Jericho, Revolutions, Fringe, New Amsterdam...

Little House on the Prairie is inoffensive family faire. I haven't seen all of it, but my mom loved it so, when I was growing up and we had a day off from school (and during the summer), it was time for LIttle House as soon as the cartoons ended around 9am. She departed the wisdom on me that every episode falls into one of two categories, sad or funny.

That Nelly Olson was a snotty little poo poo though

I don't think it's fair to call it inoffensive. Sure it isn't The Wire, but a surprising amount of people die. Compared to dramas of today it can get pretty darn dark.

This week's Debris is the most Fringe-y its ever been. The episode involved alternate realities which lead to a fun montage of Bryan with a succession of different partners and the person who found the debris of the week noping out every time he saw that Finola wasn't there.

Very fringe-y with the older scientist and all, I think the show is improving though it is obviously not at the level of even Fringe season 1.

The late night format is so incredibly stale, Stephen Colbert is just a shadow of his former self, especially with no audience around.
On the other hand Conan has just been so much more interesting when he has been able to do what he likes, doing improv comedy and having fun with people, and not be shackled by the expectations of a big late night show.

I finished Jupiter's Legacy and there's some good ideas in there but overall it was a waste of time. Some bad casting, terrible costuming, lousy acting and very unimpressive special effects.

I liked it overall, but it was much too slow. There was no reason for them to spend so long on a boring flashback origin story, especially not when the present stuff wasn't much better either.

Speaking of Whedon, it looks to me that the claim he didn't have much to do with the production of The Nevers is bullshit. He has "directed by" credits on 3 of 5 episodes so far. Maybe he left before post-production but he was certainly there for much of the shooting.

He is the creator of the show so it would have been odd for him not to be involved in the production, he left the show a few weeks before the news of his actions came out.
