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!

Old shows returning soon: Flash, Riverdale and i guess, the Blacklist.

I didn't see anything listed in the new shows that looks interesting except maybe The Romanoffs on Amazon.

iZombie won't be back until January. That's a bummer.

i'm also watching What On Earth on the science channel.

Well, Im all caught up on Fear the Walking Dead

Alot of Main Chars have ummm...exited the show,Very unlikely to ever return.

Seems like the newer chars are interesting but that may just be because they are new.

I also started to catch up on Supergirl which is
a MUCH better show....

It does a yearly crossover with Flash,Arrow & Some Lame Group of Super-Whiners* Demonstrating how superior Supergirl
is.
Even her adorable sisters Love Problems are cute.



* Probably not there actual Name..LoL

I only watched part of the first season of Supergirl. It got so silly i had to stop watching.

Flash sucks so bad anymore, all because of 1) his daughter from the future who is terrible & so is the actress who plays her and 2) they run the same theme through the entire season instead of self-contained eps like Xena or better written shows, like iZombie, which will come back in May for a final season yet they keep showing garbage like Riverdale where teenagers run the town- i mean, c'mon.

i can barely put up with TV shows anymore. I like What On Earth on the science channel but there's too many reruns & too few new eps.

Well I watched the last season of Game of Thrones because I was running into Deliberate Spoilers all over the place...

The Corksoakers !!!

It was 6 eps.. 1st 3 were the usual nasty goodness I have come to expect...

Next day I watched the last 3...not a satisfactory conclusion for me.

It was depressing & baffling as to why that end....Of course it was NEVER gonna have a Happy ending, was it?

i want my iZombie back...

i haven't seen Supergirl since season 1 & could not get into it. Too much Callisto Flakefart.

Saw Batwoman the other night. Predictable but ok

Why is the Flash still on?

xc shrieked into the void:
Why is the Flash still on?

I cant imagine....the show is oatmeal boring
the actor is oatmeal boring.
I have Never watched a single episode.
the only time I see the twerp is when they do their season X-over shows.

Those only prove to me that the only one worth watching AT ALL is Supergirl!!!

but then...thats just me.





I said Duh!
