Have watched the first couple, was very unsure initially but the second episode was pretty good. Must go back to it. :thumbs:

Nope, hadn't a clue there was one tbh until i started watching it, and have never read a Neil Gaiman book anyway, but had a browse for the audio book last night. Couldn't find the one i wanted on Audible.

Any use?

Better Call Saul Season 3 finale

If that was the end for Chuck, what a performance its been from Michael McKean over the last 3 seasons!

Yeah his performance was the highlight of that whole episode, thought the episode was a bit lacking oomph or just not as slickly done as usual. Certain things like Kim, Nacho just seemed a bit 'off'

But that scene where he starts hacking up the house made me so uncomfortable, it was fantastic. The camera angles and everything were just a bit crooked or claustrophobic or something, but mainly McKean's performance. And then the final scene at the end as well was just fantastic, even a little creepy, and then tragic. Just like that...

of 4 finales this week, I thought only Veep's was on par with what I'd expected. Let down a little by Silicon Valley, Fargo and Better Call Saul

Preacher is back, although not sure many here watch it. Think there's two episodes online now

Preacher was a cracker to open season 2. loved the scene about Jesse's parent's wedding. nice nod to the comics there.

Silicon Valley was decent but it did feel a bit hollow as to how it ended
they always get sorted by accident and not by the work they put it.

Haven't watched the finale but read that spoiler.

Was really annoyed when the deal with the VR guy for $25m went tits up. I actually thought for a second that they were finally, finally sorted and the next season could be the company actually going places instead of trying again and again to get it off the ground only for something stupid to happen AGAIN.

Preacher was great, the occasional accent issues can be overlooked when the characters are actually becoming likable and the set pieces keep getting upped.

Thought BCS finale had it's moments but didn't escalate things like the previous season
we didn't even see Mike, and Gus knowing Nacho did something to Hector isn't really a big cliffhanger. Only Chucks story felt like a big deal.

I loved the last three episodes of Fargo. Thewlis was great to watch, even if he was basically a fairly broad metaphor for everything happening in the world at the moment.

Enjoyed Silicon Valleys last 2 episodes more than the rest of the season too, it was good for them finally to have some permanence in the plotlines. Interested to see where Richard and Gavin go in their respective plots next season.

Veep was weak enough I thought, worst of the four. Funny but going nowhere.

I thought the Veep finale was better than Silicon Valleys, even though Veep had a weaker season.

Didn't realise on SV that

TJ Miller has gone. Slated one of the main writers and Thomas Middleditch in an interview too so doesn't like he even has a chance to come back.

That's a shame. In their interviews together from a few years back, they talked about doing improv together, working together on other projects and seemed to be friends for a fairly long time. But TJ Miller comes across as quite abrasive, and he isn't doing himself any favours the way he's lashing out on twitter at the moment.

He's seems like an absolute cunt in that interview. He's always had a bit of that edge back when he was doing Doug Loves Movies, there always seemed to be people he didn't get on with that he'd be sniping at.

Haven't finished it yet but yeah. It's this strange combination of ultra moody atmosphere and fine acting, but ridiculous storytelling, treading water and this thing where NOTHING ANYBODY DOES OR SAYS MAKES ANY FUCKING SENSE.

Loved it, thought it was great. I thought it was going to be hour long episodes and was surprised it was only 1/2 hour. Really good fun and nails the 80's pretty well too. watched "The story of GLOW" on netflix after and they really didn't have to change to much for the show. :thumbs:

half hour episodes could be the difference between me watching it and not.

tbf, most of my shows have stopped for Summer, so waiting on GOT & Rick & Morty. Only have Preacher & John Oliver at the minute, and kinda putting off HoC and OITNB

Rick & Morty back on Sun July 30th. I'm hoping that means they'll air EP 1 & 2 that day considering ep1 has been about for months
