Westworld season 2 done.
The only thing that really irked me is the way it's told.
More of the same of the first, so well written, well acted, engaging throughout.

It's just a jumbled mess, and I appreciate why it's told the way it is but it's just a bit terrible as a concept.

Yeah, I agree completely. I hate it when programmes use non-linear storytelling but don't indicate which bits are set when. Doing that over the course of an entire season just means I have no idea what's going on.

It also doesn't help that there isn't a single character in Westworld that's likeable. I just don't care about what happens to anyone.

I liked William. Good ol' Bill. Did like his conclusion too.
Liked Maeve and her story too, absolutely loved the "lazy story writing" she got :D

Excellent! :D

I've just finished the latest series of Bojack so that's great timing.

All the good stuff is returning thick and fast. Season 3 of F is for Family next perhaps?

Finally got off my ass and watched red dwarf series 12 last week. Easily in my book the best season since 6. There were some genuine moments with Mechocracy a top episode.

Also Hitler taking a selfie had me in stitches :lol:

Finished Ozark S2. Still good rediculous plotted twisty turnyness. Maybe a little too much but it’s still good.

Started Killing Eve which so far seems really good. The female hitman is like a serious version of Helena from Orphan Black And is pretty great for it.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

This time last year I started watching Star Trek: Discovery.

I think I quit after about eight episodes in, but I'm not entirely sure why. Maybe I grew tired of it?

Anyway, tonight I resumed where I left off and I'm really glad I did! I'm enjoying being back in the story again.

Yeah it dips badly in the middle but picks back up nicely towards the end. Will keep watching when new season starts. Like all ST it gets better as time goes on.
