In the show though, it's a procedure that makes your work self forget your non work self and vice versa. Like a partial amnesia.

The new Star Trek opening sequence is giving me so much nostalgia frisson. Clearly The Enterprise is the star of the sequence.

Such a good show. And now it's over.

The last episode of This Is Going To Hurt dropped Wednesday in the US (it finished up in the UK awhile ago) and it is one of the best things I've seen in a year crowded with amazing telly. With all the hospital dramas made, have never seen one from an ob/gyn point of view, the writing is sharp and incisive, lots of dramatic moments where you're curled up in your seat afraid what will happen next, there's more tension involving two people than in shows where all of humankind is at stake.

On the flip side, I laughed so hard at the funny bits and there are a lot of them. Every one of the cast is spot on not just Ben Whishaw, although most people will watch this show just for him. There were so many perfectly curated needle drops. Kudos BBC, well done. It's on AMC+ in the US.

I've always felt people working in medicine have a thankless job at times and this show, especially with the pandemic, just reaffirms that. Thank you health care workers for doing what you do. Also the show taught me a few things about pregnancies and the NHS.

Currently binge watching the close to half dozen episodes of Big Brother  we have on our DVR. After watching one episode I forgot how much I enjoyed watching this. It’s also one of the few shows that everyone in the house likes.

So I would say it’s one of my favorite shows 😃

I have absolutely no interest in this show. GoT was one of the few shows I stuck with even after it went downhill. Plus, I was a fan of the book series. I often stop watching shows before they actually finish.

Speaking of which, this may be the last season of Westworld I watch.

I enjoyed the last season of The Boys, though. Yes, it's ridiculous. It's supposed to be.

Season one of Westworld was great, two was decent, and then I think it fell off

Yea I wanted to see where they were going with season three so I watched it, but three episodes into season four, I'm kind of over it.

I don't know. I think sometimes these kinds of shows get lost in the sauce a bit. I watched it, but didn't love it. Homelander sucks.

He's supposed to suck. The irony is that the most powerful being in the world is basically a petulant toddler. They all kind of suck in their own ways.

I think what they do well is, despite being a drama, they don't try to take themselves too seriously. And that point is reinforced periodically with really over the top scenes.

Westworld had some great highs but so many lows. It does have a great opening credits and music though.

The first time I saw that style of intro was from Black Sails.

I'm saying he sucks, in that I don't like watching him, I don't like any storyline involving him, etc. And since that's basically the show… it kinda sucked. I don't like the guy's acting, I don't like the character, etc.

This year was disappointing.

Black Sails is an awesome show and I love the opening credits. Makes me want to plunder and mutiny, lol. Arrrrrr!!!

My top 10 tv shows of the year so far. There is so much good tv this year.

Game of Thrones really disappointed me and I was not going to watch the prequel but then I learned Paddy Considine is the lead and he’s a great actor so I’ll give it a go.

I watched S1-S2 of The Mandalorian and then also watched Obi-Wan Kenobi. I'd give OWK a solid par. It was a good series.

TM I give a birdie. Though I kind of wonder how it'll tie into season 3, and I wonder what happened to Grogu (did Ben Solo kill him?) in the future… I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 quite a bit. The Mark Hamill appearance was a shocker, but I'm not super into Star Wars, so I guess it makes sense that this happens between what are now called Episodes VI and VII.

I enjoyed that each episode was pretty self-contained, while bringing ends together eventually (often in the season finale). Great battle scenes that could have been in the movies. Good characters, though some I'd like to see again (Omera, maybe?).

Amazon had a deal on Showtime so watched The Good Lord Bird, which I've been putting off for awhile even though Ethan Hawke is in it, wary of historical dramas but it turned out to be very good even though there is dramatization and you have to read the what really happened pieces. It also made me do a rathole on abolitionist history here and in Europe. Hawke is excellent as was Daveed Digs and Joshua Caleb Johnson.

Yellowjackets has been compared to Lost and rightfully so, it's quite the show to binge. The first episode was a little CW, a trudge to be honest, maybe it's my familiarity with NJ. I get establishing characters, but not every pilot can be Lost. Once it starts to get going, you're gonna get your Lost fix, but the question remains can it wrap up its mysteries in a satisfying way like say Dark.

On the 7th episode of The Sandman, not familiar with the books, but it went places I never expected and it's not all magic and fantasy. Maybe a little like therapy. Very familiar with the lead actor from having watched Pirate Radio so many times. Looking forward to how this finishes. This show does not feel anything like a Netflix original and it's not. It was made by Warner Brothers and Netflix bought the rights.
