Dropped Midnight studio (left) and decided to read recaps instead. I actually soldiered on with Now, it's Showtime and I want my time back, even if I fast forwarded and skipped a lot of scenes 😅 Too many filler scenes, uneven story telling which didn't manage the comedy and angst well. And worse of all, boring 😅. With Midnight Studio I got bored by the 4th ep because I just knew where the story was going, and judging by the recaps I was right.

Lynn: I'm not sure I want to become a nun, but I want to talk to Sister Andrea about it.

Kristen (Mom): The fuck you are.

Lynn: Mom, I'm just interested...

Mom: No, you're not. You're 14 years old, and you're not interested in becoming a nun.

Lynn: You're the one who wanted us the go to Mass.

Mom: Yeah, but not so you could lock yourself up in some patriarchal bullshit. You want to get a nose ring and tattoos, we can talk about it, but no!

These are the and that I plan to catch up with this year. I have a feeling I may end up dropping The Legends, because I have very little patience for xianxia, but since it stars Xu Kai maybe I'll give it more of a chance :P

@liztai It is fascinating to me how dramas that become ‘special’ to me emerge. Such alchemy!

Example: I’m watching a ‘typical’ time-slip murder-mystery kdrama called My Perfect Stranger on Viki. Low budget. 16 episodes. No hype. Good acting chemistry but not spectacular. But somehow the script is very strong (same writer behind Tale of Nokdu). And I still can’t predict whodunnit and am nearly finished! Addictive!

All six seasons of "Lost" are arriving on Netflix in the U.S. on July 1 — that's 121 episodes, from the pilot to the divisive finale. Total Film's Emily Garbutt says that some fans are lobbying for a re-evaulation of the final twist. She quotes one: "My firm stance remains that 'Lost' is good and the finale is great and haters will be welcomed with open arms on the right side of history after they reevaluate." Time for the big question: 14 years after it aired, what are your thoughts on the finale of "Lost?"

@samiamsam "Fringe" was so great!

@CultureDesk@flipboard.social avatar

27% of respondents to this poll are steadfast in their hatred of the "Lost" finale, though a higher percentage — 38% — didn't watch it at all. 11% loved it, though — @RVLara23 says it was "the most brilliant ending to the most brilliant show of all time." Lots and lots of love for other Damon Lindelof shows in the comments too, including "The Leftovers," "Watchmen" and "Fringe." Next up for Lindelof is a TV show called "The Human Conditions," co-produced with Matt Reeves and described as a magical-realist medical drama.

"Halt and Catch Fire" premiered 10 years ago and went on for four seasons and 40 episodes. @polygon's Devan Suber describes how the beloved AMC show understood the draw of video games better than any show that's come before it. "In the words of Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), the computer was always 'the thing that gets us to the thing,' a vector for connection, expression, or some other deeper human need."

@CultureDesk @polygon @tv just did my own tribute to “Halt and Catch Fire”, inspired by @Jyoti ‘s love of it, as much as my own.

A much under-seen series, and I have a couple more, similarly over-looked and under-seen gems to write about also next.

Stephen Colbert has sat in the "Late Show" spinny chair for a decade now. He spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his office decor — his kids' old art projects hang beside a copy of Donald Trump's impeachment resolution — how he fell in love with the monologue, and the fine art of blending stupid and smart.

"I’ve been thinking, lately, about the theme of 'American presidents who commit felonies.' I don’t know why; it’s just been on my mind recently for some reason," writes Crime Reads' Olivia Rutigliano. She's created this list of fictional presidents from TV and and film who've committed felonies, including President Fitz from "Scandal," President Frank Underwood from "House of Cards," and more. "As I just said, these are fictional examples, so if some real guy who was elected the President of the United States of America committed anything equivalent to these things in real life, it’d be way, way worse," Rutigliano concludes.

The Completely Made-Up Adventures of Dick Turpin. I knew when I first saw the trailer of this vaguely historical comedy series with Noel Fielding in the title role that me and my daughter would love it. And indeed we did, laughed wholeheartedly at the silliness of it all, and the many dick jokes brought on by the lead character's first name. It's nowhere near on par with Blackadder, but it's clearly in the same vein. The series reinvents Dick Turpin (one of the most notorious and ruthless highwaymen in English history) as a shallow but good-hearted man ticking all the boxes of modern deconstruction (vegetarian, gender-fluid, etc.) who falls into highway robbery by accident and likes the fame that comes with it. It's a laugh, although I doubt I'll be watching it again (unlike Blackadder). #tvseries #comedy #history #noelfielding

The most popular TV show you've never heard of is called "The Chosen." It tells the story of Jesus and his disciples and there are seven seasons planned (the fourth season starts streaming June 2). Around 200 million people around the world have watched at least an episode, and the show also sold $63 million in theatrical ticket sales. The Hollywood Reporter talked to director Dallas Jenkins, who set out to make an elevated Christian TV series, and now has his sights on the Jesus Cinematic Universe.

Oglądałem wczoraj „Fallouta” na Prime Video, kiedy uderzyli mnie reklamą w środku odcinka. Prawdopodobnie podziękuję za więcej seriali tam. Trochę szkoda, bo HDR mają zgodny z moim telewizorem, ale takich rzeczy w subskrypcji się nie wybacza.

Marvel is rebranding its TV shows to show fans that they don't necessarily have to watch everything in order to understand what's going on. “The hope is that, like the comics, you can just pop in anywhere and have a satisfying experience. We’re trying to dispel the idea that you need to do any kind of setup work to watch anything else,” says Brad Winderbaum, Marvel's head of streaming, TV and animation. Here's more detail from Variety. What's your take on the MCU these days?

@CultureDesk @billyjoebowers I wouldn’t mind keeping up if the stories felt different and took more story-telling risks. The sameness and lack of depth got super boring. Even if the quality fluctuated or the stories didn’t always land for me, it would have been better than the surface-level stories that never got deeper than “look at our snarky action heroes.”

@rayckeith Yeah, it is frustrating. I find Tubi to be unwatchable precisely because of the ads. Product placements in shows are offensive enough, y’know?

At least here in Canada, only the latest season is on Disney+. We were promised all 13 seasons of the reboot, with Classic Who still in talks. It was pulled from Crave, so I cancelled Crave, signed up for Disney+, and binged The Orville, Futurama, and all the Star Wars I could stomach waiting for RTD’s specials and the new season (and what a season!).

Still no sign of any other seasons.

As for Androneda, only the first season is available to buy outright on the Apple TV store, which is a little suspicious. This reminds me of the time they “replaced” Farscape with the new remastered versions by deleting the series from the store, AND my library, then re-adding it as a new show to force repurchase when I already own a license. Okay, I admit it, I did it for Farscape because it’s Farscape.

So on THAT note… I know what I’m watching tonight. Y’know. Assuming I can manage to put Starfield down before falling asleep at the console.

@thephoeron I purchased all of new dr who on dvds just before the disney+ announcements happened.

I have found the old dr who unwatchable (not because of ads). sometimes it feels like they hate their audience. surprising because I watched tom baker when I was a kid, on public tv.

Whenever I'm really enjoying a Drama like 'Fake It Till You Make It", I get nervous nearing the end: "Will it stick the landing?" It did & gave me the rare treat continually upping it's score its score right to the end, finishing on 10.25/10 - SMART dialog, sweet, stunning chemistry between 2 skilled leads, the bonus is for the perfectly grounded feelgood realism of the very end. It's also seen move from 4th to 2nd in my average ratings, bumping into 3rd

I wonder, are dubs licensed differently compared to the original Japanese cast on Anime shows? Like I have found a few shows now on HIDIVE that have English dubs and the same show are on Crunchy Roll but with no dubs, or is Crunchy Roll just dropping the ball here?

anianimalsmoe,
@anianimalsmoe@sakurajima.moe avatar

@Arataka
It's complicated.

HiDIVE's dubs are mostly by Sentai Filmworks in the US, whereas Crunchyroll seems to have shifted to mostly using their own in-house dubbing studio.

Shows that already have dubs e.g. Delicious in Dungeon are purchased with the dub.
