Watching Cobra Kai season 3.  I’m not ashamed to admit I teared up when they read that letter from Mr Miyagi.  Being a child of the 80s and 90s, I feel like the character of Mr Miyagi influenced me as a person.  Taught me that holding on to anger and seeking out violence is bad for you.

 

It’s corny, but you know how kids are with fictional heroes.

I still need to watch Season 3. Absolutely LOVE the first two seasons. Great stuff.

Can't find anyone watching Suburra. It's a real shame. It's based on true events but it plays out like GTA, except in Rome. You have warring factions/gangs and outcasts from those gangs forming their own alliances, politicians, politics, the Vatican, street crime.  It's brilliant. It's only 3 seasons. The 3rd and final season just released not long ago.

Just started watching Initial D today.To be honest,I'm not really familiar with anime (I did watch stuff like Pokemon, Digimon, YuGiOh, Beyblade and a few others as a kid,but that was back in the early and mid 2000s),but since I've heard this is about cars and street racing and that it has a lot of cool 80s and 90s Japanese cars,I decided to check it out.So far I've only seen the first two episodes,but I liked them,so I'll keep watching it.

Watching His Dark Materials S2, The Mandalorian S2 and Cobra Kai S3 (all brilliant shows, by the way) made me realise how much I actually enjoy TV, but don't watch it because I'm distracted by other forms of consumable media (games, mostly). So when the new year rolled around I picked up strange habits, the main one being the paring of a serious British drama with a light hearted American comedy. The pairings so far have been:

 

BBC's The Serpent (good show full of suspense) and NBC's Powerless (shaky start, but got pretty good pretty quickly. Shout out to Alan Tudyk).

ITV's Broadchurch (damn, damn good show) and FOX's L.A. to Vegas (very much like Powerless, shout out to Dylan McDermott whose character was the best. I was actually sad to get to the end of this show, I kind of wanted to see more).

(and currently)

BBC's McMafia (just started, still unsure about it) and CBS' The Great Indoors (not sure about this one either, might drop it even with Stephen Fry in it. Plus, it has laugh tracks - yuck).

 

Oh, and you may notice that these comedy shows were canned during or after one season, that's intentional.

 

I'm just going to dedicate the rest of this post to Broadchurch, because I feel I need to. I was originally drawn to it because its essentially Doctor Who without being... Doctor Who. Two doctors; one former and current (but soon to be former) Doctor paired with the current showrunner Chris Chibnall. Also, I've seen so much praise for Olivia Colman, but never actually seen her in anything (same goes for David Tennant), so I thought this show would be my best chance to rectify it. So, my first impressions were, "oh my god, an ITV show? Ugh, that means its some lowest common denominator type sh*t" - ITV shows usually are, particularly their reality shows. It also didn't help that my views of British drama in general were quite jaded. I have to say, Broadchurch is so far from that (particularly after it gets its footing after the first few episodes of Series 1). It honestly blew my expectations out of the water. Tennant is so good, Colman is so good and Jodie Whittaker also has her moments along with the rest of the cast. I can now see why these actors are so highly regarded. I thought the first series was good, but the second and third were so much better (but series 2 is the best). This statement may not have a lot of weight, but this might be the best British drama I've ever watched.

Started a re-run of Malcolm in the Middle after a long-freaking-time. Man, even hearing the show's intro tune brings back many memories...

 

Life is unfair...

 

I'm not a big fan of the generic, cheesy American sit-com (I consider popular shows like Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother as such). However, Malcolm in the Middle holds a very special place for me: A situational comedy - Very lively, very absurd. Educational with a style. Philosophical with a mindset. Hey, they didn't pick the show's motto as "Life is unfair" for nothing.

 

Just watched the second season episode, Casino. Jolly good episode.

Been watching the old ESPN show playmakers the entire series is up on youtube. It's about the struggles of a football team in their personal and professional lives. The show ended up getting cancelled by ESPN after 1 season because of pressure from the NFL because a lot of the issues that they show got a bit too real for them drugs, PEDs, CTE, domestic violence, gay teammates, etc and thought that it would bring a bad image to the league even though the show doesn't mention the NFL at all and takes place in a fictional league.

 

Watching it is like a time capsule into the early 2000s. I still find it kinda funny that Disney was somewhat involved in this show.

Been rewatching the original Twilight Zone, planning to cover all of its seasons. Not interested in watching the recent revival because, yes, I'm really that much of a snob.

 

But...should I?

I’ve had the urge to watch Twin Peaks. I’ve had the third season on DVD for quite sometime, but I found it confusing so I thought about just getting the entire series on blu-ray and started from the beginning.

 

Just finished watching the pilot and I’m quite amazed that I just so happened to watch it 31 years to the day it debuted on April 8 1990. What an amazing coincidence. I had no idea as I was just looking on Wikipedia as I wasn’t sure whether it was 1990 or 1991. Can’t believe I chose the right date out of pure chance lol.

I've read pretty much all of the Invincible comic, so I'm kinda not interested in watching the show but if they adapt the comic faithfully which looks to be the case then it'll be fantastic. One of the best super hero comics ever.

 

I may have to check out the show one day for a flick through for some of my favourite moments in animated form possibly though.
