I am thoroughly enjoying this, more so than the movies.

Watchmen, His Dark Materials, and The Mandalorian are all top notch.
+1 for Watchmen. Haven't seen the other two yet.

I'm really enjoying the Mandalorian. It's like watching something I've already seen in a way I never knew I wanted it. The story is simple, straightforward. Kind of cheesy in a way that reminds me of 90's TV. But it's both charming and badass. I'm really surprised at how much I'm enjoying it because I've felt pretty meh about Star Wars for over 10 years now.

Speaking of the new Witcher show... how is it?

I enjoyed it and was pleasantly surprised, except by the CG, which wasn't super great at spots.  I think Henry Cavill really nailed Geralt.

The wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff was confusing until we figured out what was going on after ep 3. They super dropped the ball on making people that are supposed to age actually look older. The first episode isn't too great either. BUT then it picks up steam and gets really enjoyable. Especially when they introduce Dandelion and you have him to offset Sir Grizzled Snowflake. Even if Dandelion is another example of a guy that shoulda aged a LOT more to reflect the passage of time!

100% worth a watch all the same. TBH I'm considering a rewatch now that I understand the story better.

I found it pretty enjoyable. I had to remind myself that this was based off of an interpretation of the books, and had to separate my expectations from the games vs what they were interpreting from the novels.

As Delirium mentioned, I was a little confused by the way the show jumps between 3 different characters, at different times, but doesn't really clue the viewer in until around episode 3.

Theres some silly lines and hardcore cheese at parts in The Witcher that made me roll my eyes. I give it a 6 or 7 out of 10. I really liked the first couple eps then it lost me later. There are actually a couples hints the first episode of the timelines, but i didnt pick up on them and thought everything was happening at the same time.

Mr. Robot concluded its series finale and is easily one of my favorite shows ever. Up there with Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul, Fargo, and The Leftovers. Really nailed the ending.

The Expanse season 4 really improves on the 4th book by adding elements from Gods of Risk and setting up the 5th season. I loved it but I must admit I feel like they could have had a couple more episodes to delve into more of the new world stuff. The sense of discovery and awe of an alien planet with alien life felt a bit rushed.

The Witcher seemed like it was just setting up backgrounds for everyone. Yennefer was set up and shown who she is over the however many hundred years she did it through the course of the season.

I think season 2 is where it will kick off and be truly enjoyable, at least I hope so because Henry really did nail Geralt.

I didn't like The Witcher. Almost at all.

Just finished the first season of Steins;Gate including ep 25 and the movie, and 23b. It is a masterpiece. I love the love in this anime. Both what is put into it and contained within it. I almost didnt want to start the next season because it ends so perfectly. But i couldnt deprive myself of these amazing characters.

Having watched considerable portions of the dub as well i feel confident saying it is the best dubbing job i have ever seen in an anime. Amazing.

I haven't watched the Anime, but I read the visual novel (it's on Steam, btw) which is also excellent and very well translated.

Just started watching Impulse yesterday - it's about a teenage girl who finds out (in a rather traumatic situation) that she can teleport back to her room when scared. It's pretty good so far (3 episodes in).

(Netflix)

I have never seen anything so ludicrously surreal yet medically accurate.  It's like a biochemistry undergrad's fever dream.  The concept is that cells in your body (mostly circulatory and immune system cells) are anime people with personalities and jobs to do around the city/body.  Despite the lack of an over-arcing plot, the way it wholeheartedly embraces the premise and rams depth into the characters makes it weirdly compelling.  Also moderately educational.

Netflix defaults to Japanese voice with subtitles, but the English dubs are fine, filled with a lot of the common pro English voice actors.

Started season 2 of Impulse and it keeps getting better and better! Definitely recommend!

Despite the (realistic) teenage characters, it's an adult show with some compelling grown-up characters. Quite a 'realistic' look at superpowers and people's reactions to them, as well. Nothing is glorified. They come with more caveats than benefits.

I watched The Boys and then Titans season 2 and then The Expanse season 4 and realized they were all filmed in Toronto.
