Imo it started off slow but after he accepts the bounty until the end it was great.

I loved the bounty droid,too bad it was so short lived.

The ending has me intrigued enough to keep watching.

How could a baby Yoda not be intriguing?

Silicon Valley feels stronger than the past season or two so far, I've been really enjoying it.

Anyone catch Mrs. Fletcher or His Dark Materials?

I was just coming on here to mention Silicon Valley. It had slipped the last year or so, but this season is really funny so far.

The Mandalorian

Spoiler:
So is it just going to ripoff Lone Wolf and Cub now, or will they call it an "homage"?

I liked Mandalorian... dialogue and pacing was average but the tone and characters were exactly what I hoped (episode 4-5 vibe). Star Wars properties have a few sizable challenges; they have to tell new stories with familiar tropes, they have to feel menacing and gritty while remaining PG, and they have to make the kids in the audience feel like they are older (watching something for adults) while making the adults feel like they are kids again. These are no easy tasks. But Mandalorian did it, in my opinion.

The perfect microcosm of that, is the droid fight at the end. I had that action figure as a kid, and it was the suckiest action figure in the set, arms didnt bend, no source material to connect it too, just seemed like an after-though as a character and a toy. But the final 8 minutes of episode 1 of the Mandalorian made me think of that old robot toy/character, and think “there was more to it than I imagined” and I can’t remember the last time a Star Wars property made me feel that way (probably Rogue One).

Really enjoyed it and am excited for more.

Final season of Man in the High Castle arrives tomorrow and I can't wait. The show just gets better and better.

There's been a lot of great stuff. One thing that alone made these three eps worth it though:

Spoiler:
The Jared/Richard split. Top-tier mix of comedy and feels.

Hmmm I'm gonna have to get back into that. The watching queue got backed up with having a 2nd kid and 1st kid being at a needy bedtime age and while I liked S1 and S2, it was not high priority to finish S3 (we haven't). I'll take your word on that and we'll blast through both at some point soon.

Why didn't you guys tell me that Trent Reznor was contributing to the soundtrack for Watchmen? I would have started it weeks ago. Saw the pilot last night and I am hooked.

I started Catherine the Great, but haven't been able to finish it. Can't put my finger on it, just not a lot that drew me in

Saw Parasite on Tuesday. I think it's my favorite of the year. I need to see it again, but I pretty much liked everything about it.
