I just binged the whole season on Sunday. It was pretty good. I won't give any other opinion to not distort your perception.

Worth the follow through, though.

New True Detective.

Only through 2 episodes but we are digging it so far.

Feels better than season two, which was too jumbled.

While M Ali gets most of the acclaim, all the acting this season is superb.

Amazon:  The Widow.  Pretty much goes, husband is in an African country on a humanitarian job.  Flies on a plane, and the plane crashes.  She thinks he's dead, then sees a video and think he's alive.  Then goes to said country to find him.  Oh, did I mention they are white, and in the Congo where everyone else in the movie is black, except for the aid workers.  And no one notices them or can find them.  Yes, pretty much absurd.  It's a pass.

Just finished season 2 of The Break.

Enjoyed it very much. Lot's of twists and turns to the plot to keep the interest going.

Yoann Peters is one flawed Inspector, but follows through to the end.

Once again an intense finale to end the season

Just started season 2 of Rebellion

About the Irish Easter Uprising starting in 1916.

so I watched the first two episodes because the subject matter is interesting. however, they weren't very interesting, imo. I hope it gets better.

It does get better.

Season 2 starts off slow and ends strong also.

Captain Marvel.  It was ok.  I thought the first half of the movie was kind of going through the motions.  It took a long time to develop her character.  And really her character seemed a little bland.  She was all kick ass and everything, but there really wasn't any personality in it.  This movie just seemed like it was going through the motions like the early movies of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor to introduce the characters and make a backstory so that when the Avengers was introduced, it would make sense.  Oddly, I find that Capt America has the best story lines and writing for his movies.  And I thought his would be the hardest to sell.

Overall ,if you are a follower of the Marvel movies, then you will want to see it, just so that Avengers End Game will make sense.  If you aren't, you could wait for cable.

Tin Star takes up where it left off, in the twisted minds of insane people that react to a world with no moral compass. Every violent action that takes place you can say, well, really the asshole deserved it. And that includes every character.

Netflix:  The Order.  It's like a Harry Potter meets Twilight.  With kind of a messed up ending.  Never watched Twilight, but my guess is if you like the wizard and warewolf kind of stuff.  This would be of interest.  Probably not for most of you though.
