I am a Dexter fan, and like everyone else was terribly disappointed by how the series ended in season 8.

However, New Blood made ammends and more.... It was a fantastic season and the ending was very satisfying. Watch it, you'll get closure too

The prequel of Yellowstone. 1883 is now being aired on Prime. Watched 2 episodes, this looks very rustic compared to Yellowstone.

New blood was a good attempt but the ending absolutely screws it over. So many illogical and uncharacteristic scenes in final episode which makes zero sense. We thought Dexter original finale was a disaster but New blood is worse.

The Last of Us : 5 / 5

Zombie series aren't a new thing - heck, the topic has been chewed and reused in movies, TV series, games and whatnot over multiple decades. But here comes a compact series supported by some really good cast that attempts a completely different take at the cause of zombie outbreaks and yet sneaks in a wonderful emotional touch to the (alive) humans in the story. Without going all gory on the dead bodies aspects; which generally is the norm for such movies/series. Even after only 3 episodes, one feels quite content and satisfied with the short series.

And lastly Pedro Pascal is a brilliant brilliant genius of an actor. And one highly underrated. He's kind of the Irrfan Khan of Hollywood, if you get what I'm saying.

The Space adventure series based on books by James S. A. Corey, an excellent drama with high production value & good acting by all the major characters.

To those who are looking for a decent space series, its a must watch.
I watched Expanse last year and can say loved it for its viewing experience. Any suggestion for similar ones?

I personally am fascinated by TV shows that deal with the expanded universe as there are endless possibilities out there.
Below are a few series that deal with life outside our galaxy:
  • Raised by Wolves(2020-2022)
  • Firefly(2002)
  • Lost in Space(2018-2021)
  • Star Trek: Strange New Worlds(2022)
  • Halo(2022)

I have no issues with gore and blood but I literally have to take my eyes away from the screen when scenes with fungi faces come up. If there is something called fungi phobia then I think I also have one. Those scenes are gross. Just thinking about it makes my mind go "yuk".

Till this Sunday (5th Feb), there were no ads in Shark Tank India S2. But from Monday, it has started, if you skip forward then two ads are a must watch.

Watched the first few episodes of 1883, this is more raw & rustic- as you indicate.
Hope it doesn't turn into another Yellowstone. I'd enjoyed the first few episodes of Yellowstone, but then it turned into a a kind of soap opera, set of course in an outstanding locale.

1883 has some outstanding quotes, almost philosophical.
Some that stuck to me were :
- when Dutton shoots a deer and makes his son Thank for giving its life to their sustenance
Quote:
When you kill a thing, it makes you a little less human, a little more animal. We only try to find a balance between them. That is all life is
- Elsa as she turns a cowgirl.
Quote:
To many, Freedom is an abstract thought that pertains to control. That is not freedom - that is independence, freedom is riding over wild land with no notion of any moment beyond the one you are in

The guy is an extraordinary entertainer - finding something fun in the mundane, but to me Kaleb steals the show!

Re: The TV / Streaming shows thread (no spoilers please)

Watching Farzi on Prime
Rating 3.5/5
The cast is promising Shahid, KK, Vijay Sethupati
This is well directed series, though a bit stretched. Instead of usual super cop vs terrorists genre, plot is around counterfeits.
Pace is slow. Predictable. KK and Shahid are wasted. Amol Palekar does justice to his role.
Vijay Sethupathi impressed me in his role. Rashi Khanna has portrayed her character convincingly.
Appreciate no vulgar scenes or blood.
The ending however is not logical. Perhaps season 2 seeds are seen.

You should watch Battlestar Galactica - an amazing concept, storyline, series and a great cast. The good thing is that the entire series is complete, so its perfect for binge watching!

Re: The TV / Streaming shows thread (no spoilers please)

Finished Kung Fu Panda : The Dragon Knight Season 1 & 2
Rating - 2/5

Pretty average. New characters introduced lack personality which Shifu or Furious Five had. Even the villains are forgettable.

Watch it only if you are a Kung Fu Panda fan, just like me

I watched it completely and what an amazing show that even though didn't not have proper support from both the studios (sci fi ,then Amazon)at some point , carried the story to absolute glory all thanks to die hard fans and show runners who know what they're doing.

Apart from Nolan's work this is the only sci-fi show that is loaded to the brim with logic and aspects of space that we have not yet imagined. And with such a limited budget one could only wonder how much bigger and better it could have been if they had the big budgets of GOT and Disney's etc...
THE BEST SCIFI SHOW EVER.

Some similar sci-fi shows are Battle Star galactica, for all mankind, altered carbon, the 100
Etc. But nothing can come close to the story telling and character arc , Environment building of The Expanse.

Having watched The Walking dead universe i could watch everything while enjoying my dinner without even twitching an eye all thank to the training i had from TWD previously . And i just love the details they have given for this Fungi and how its been shown. Glad they didn't tone it down for the show. The way they unravel the aspects of the fungi bit by bit with each episode rather than dumping it all Resident evil style is what got me hooked to this world.
