There's a new series on Amazon Prime i may check out- Picnic At Hanging Rock. i loved the movie & book, so i hope they do good in the tv series. Not sure if this is a limited series or going to be ongoing.


An update on these 2 shows:

I watched 1 1/2 eps of Cloak & Dagger. It was pretty lame, IMO, and filled with terrible pre-teen type pop music. The Cloak character was more realistic while Dagger was unlikable and cliched. If a better network than Freeform took control of the show, maybe it could be saved from being so predictable.

Picnic At Hanging Rock wasn't much better. It had none of the appeal or mystique of the movie & book. It did flesh out the story line but not in good ways, IMO. Some of the actresses were terribly miscast. Just disappointed that Amazon would produce such lazy stuff.

I found Picnic at Hanging Rock to be very patchy.

Some parts were very good, others were awful.

It was only ever meant to be a six part series, and it never solved the mystery. Which is a good thing.

I just watched the last episode tonight, and it almost could have been a telemovie on its own.

Easily the best episode, and a REALLY great way to round the series out.

For me these were the series highlights:

* The missing girls. The three of them had such excellent chemistry together, and everything they did felt as though it was happening in a dream.

* The headmistress. We could never pin her down, as viewers. What was her past? What was she hiding from?

* The young girl who Miranda took under wing. I think her name was Sarah. So immensely watchable. My heart went out to her constantly.

* The French teacher. She had real growth throughout the story. It was almost as though the girls' disappearance caused her to examine her own life.

The weakest episode for me was the second one, which focussed on the young men. It added little to the story, imo.

The Handmaid's Tale

I have this but havent started it yet.....I have heard good things ...


Westworld has become dull
I am about to stop watching this one. It ran out of ideas after its superb first season.

Im only upto ep 2 this season,so far, but it does feel lacking a little bit somehow.
Im hoping that fixes itself...



Fear the Walking Dead

It's sister show lapsed into a FPS, but this show has gone from strength to strength.


I watched season 1 of FtWD honestly that unwashed greasy haired kid's hygiene was beginning to nauseate me..
I have it all,I think. ...its on my list for a re-start..some day.

tWD jumped the shark for me with Neegan....I enjoy it when hes not there & hate it when he is...
I may stick with it since its almost over, isnt it?





I said Duh!
