What’s To Watch
I haven’t done one of these in a while, but considering I’m having issues writing the last verse to this song and I’m looking for a way to procrastinate while still appearing to be working;
Here’s what I’m currently watching-
Daredevil Season 3 (Netflix)
I’ve had a bit of a complicated relationship with this show, mainly because the concept of Daredevil, a blind hero who can see, never sat right with me. That said, I was on board as of season 1 due to those ridiculously well-choreographed fights and an interesting roster of supporting players. And of course, Vincent D’Onforio just emanates power.
Season 2, excluding the amazing debut of Punisher, I found it to be rather lacking.
Season 3, however? Holy shite. I am 8 episodes in, and I’m forcing myself to only watch one per day. I don’t want to give anything away, but that said, if you’re on the fence, get off the damn thing and into this series.
The Outpost (CW)
I have no idea where this series came from, except it stars one of my favorite character actors from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, who was also in Turn. Still, it’s fantasy, which is my jam, so I’m giving it a run through.
2 episodes in and I don’t know. I’ll give it a full 6 before I decide to continue or pull the plug.
The Last Ship (TNT)
I’ve had a thing for this series since it debuted 5 years ago, and with season 5 being the last, it looks like they’re going out on a high. It’s a fun action series, as long as you don’t spend too much time thinking about it.
One caveat about this show, is that it stars Adam Baldwin of Firefly flame, who also happens to be a complete nutbag, bully and Gamer Gate founder. If you can’t separate the art from the artist, I understand.
The rest of the cast is lovely.
The Purge (USA)
Before watching this series, I had never seen a Purge movie before, though I knew of the premise.
I’ll give the first season a full shot, as there’s been a few things to enjoy thus far in season 1, and behind the carnage, there is a very poignant socio-economic message that not only resonates, but like The Handmaid’s Tale, could very well occur given where we are as a society.
Mayans MC (FX)
I don’t know how Kurt Sutter did it, but he took the Sons of Anarchy concept and made it better. I’m not sure if it’s due to the shows SoCal location, which integrates a lot of the immigrant debates we’re seeing raging these days, or that the characters are just layered, complicated and consistent, but this show is killing it.
Unsurprising, it’s been renewed for a second season and I am all in.
Big Mouth (Netflix)
For the dozen of you who haven’t watched this yet, please do so. For yourselves.
Am I missing anything good? Tell me in the comments.
