So much has happened since my last post here, the biggest of which is the premier of season eight of “Shameless” and “The Walking Dead” and also the end of that absolutely brilliant first season of “The Deuce”.
I am going to be running down a few TV show to get into and also to look forward to, in other words I’m going to be your guide in the world of fake knives, real ketchup and cardboard cut-throats in this golden age of TV, if you’d let me.
What to Binge:
1. Future Man.
Time travel always works. Sci-fi comedy, not always.The Orville took a shot at this genre but didn’t quite hit the mark. Though still a decent show to me(I’m actually hooked). Future Man follows a young man who beats a video the whole world gave up on only to discover it was actually a training simulation sent back in time to find the savour for humanity in resistance war against the Biotics in the future. Though a little predictable,”Ridiculously thrilling” is my verdict for this bro-comedy.
2. Alias Grace
Author, Margret Atwood seems to be on a winning streak. After the massive success of the TV series adaptation of her novel “The handmaid’s tale”, another adaptation of another book by her has also garnered raves from critics and audiences alike. It follows a poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who is accused and convicted of the 1843 murder of her employer and his housekeeper.
Here we see a recreation of how the term “Serial Killer” was coined. This show takes us into the mind of the most fucked up serial killers and tries to discover what makes them do what they do. With a stunning cast delivering impeccable performances it’s hard not to get hooked to this one.
What to look forward to:
The Punisher finally becomes available today. Friday 17th November. With positive reviews it has been described as extremely violent and bloody, just how we love em. Also premiering on the 1st of December is the fifth season of Agents of Shield.
The cast have said that this season is full of action and we can’t wait to see it. And for the “Vikings” fans, the Nordic history series returns to History channel November 29th.
Shameless returned with more hilarious episodes and we can’t wait to see how the rest of the season plays out. Frank seemed to have turned a new leaf and everyone is wondering how long it’s going to last.
I think all his instincts which he has been suppressing would be unleashed on this new character who is going to rattle the Gallaghers for stealing his Meth(the one Monica left them). Outlander is slowly losing me, the show seems to be suffering from the lack of a particular focus the past two seasons had.
The walking dead still rules, though it has been reduced to a badly written show with mediocre unrealistic action sequences. Mr Robot delivered it’s strongest episode yet which I’m not completely over yet.
The underrated “The last man on earth” is still going strong. You’re the worst and Broad city continues to rule Wednesday night comedy. Finally, Star Trek: Discovery totally exceeded my expectations with the first half of its first season.
That’s all for now, till my next post.
