Unbelievably only one of his numerous projects has been given a mediocre reaction.

Just wrapped Dexter: New Blood. Pretty solid but not as good as I'd hoped. Better than s5 and onward but a far cry from s1, 2 and 4.

SPOILER: show
the show loses something with dexter not working crime scenes. I hadnt fully appreciated that aspect until it was lost. Not that it ruins the show or anything.

Once you can look back and see this season as an epilog it makes more sense but to get to its ending it has to double down on the weakest part of the original run: Dexter the Dad. Again to get to its ending it has to but 10 ep run is mostly dealing with Dexter from that angle and rarely from the seriel killer angle and nearly never from Dexter the blood splatter analyst.

It is a much better ending for the character than the original final season. Dexter always needed to die for poetic justices sake and he finally meets a fitting end. Having Harrison do it works. I do wish Batista had been more involved. Maybe cracking the Bay Harbor Butcher case in a larger way. I dunno.


It was pretty solid all in all. Perhaps the 4th or 5th best season. Cant decide if its better than season 3 or not but its up there.

I loved every moment of it up until the finale.
I got it, I recognised its sense but I was crushed to see it end after such a resurrection.
I’m confident in saying it is the second best season behind season four which is probably the best season of tv I have ever seen.

Dexter season four is just perfect. Only Better Call Saul or Breaking Bad can claim any such longevity of quality across an entire season.
The Sopranos didn’t even achieve it.

I think Succession just started up again with a new season.
I can’t think of a smarter, funnier show. Another Destor suggestion.

I rank s1 and 2 of dexter pretty highly amongst all time great TV. S4 is right up but the first 2 seasons are really pure and focused in a way tv rarely ever gets. S3 struggles because its reeling from losing its antagonist and bookended against s4 it looks really weak in the rear view mirror. S4 has the same quality of writting as the 1st 2 seasons and arguably a more dramatic climax. I think how exceptional the first half of Dexter is makes its fall from grace cut that much deeper. Like Game of Thrones in a lot of ways.

S9 (fuck your rebranding) i dont think can match those 3 seasons. On reflection i definitely think its better than season 3 for sure though.

The Kurgan is great in s9. The moment he appears in 902 i was elated. The way they work him into the narrative and the way he interacts with Dexter in both The World of the Lie and in The World of the Truth is really well done.

All that said the show gets very caught up in the minutiae of his moutainman life and i think it leaves a bit to be desired. Contrasting it against the shows peak, and this season if very deserving to be considered against the best of its run, it just isnt as compelling as that upper echelon.

But we're talking about 3 of the best seasons of tv ever made. Its not really a besmirchment to not be as good as its peak.

And beyond that endings are hard. There's a ton of house keeping that goes into wrapping long form narratives that werent constructed to end. If you hold this ending up against its first ending...this is a masterpiece. So I'll def take it woth pleasure.

Just a general Ted Lasso observation from something that happened in episode 2 of this new season. Having just re-watched the series with my girlfriend before the start of the new season, a lot of stuff is fresh in my mind so I appreciated this bit of writing that much more.

SPOILER: show
In a scene early in season 1, Roy Kent tells writer Trent Crimm "you're a colossal prick and you always have been". It's the only time they interact in the entire series until season 3.

In a scene from season 2 where Kent is a pundit asked to give his thoughts on a debuting 17-year old prospect, Kent gets super emotional and basically dismisses the entire pundit job, saying it's bullshit that they have to try to sit there and predict what a kid is going to do and judge them when they're not out there with them.

Now you get to the current season, Kent and Crimm are forced into interacting with each other, and Kent reveals that he's kept a newspaper clipping from when he debuted at 17 and Crimm wrote a scathing piece on how shit his debut game was. So in one moment they explained why Kent hated him and why he got choked up about young players being criticized.

Just finished S1 of the original show. Maybe been only 1 or 2 episodes that I started to get "bored" at, but enjoyed the rest.... pretty much all "new content" for me since I never really watched them as a kid as I said...

Another perfect season of tv is Deadwood season 1.
Seasons two and three are pretty swell too, especially that Dan Dority fight.

I need to watch the Deadwood film, which came out a few years ago; I think it is supposed to provide a more fitting conclusion to the series.

Finished the fourth and final season of Westworld last night. Entertaining enough, but a shadow of its former greatness. I'm not surprised they didn't bother to go ahead with the originally intended final fifth season.

Earlier in the week I also finished the first part of Yellowstone's fifth season. It seemed to lack the humour of the earlier seasons, but thankfully toned done the social justice elements that usually revolve around the Monica character. I found it as entertaining as ever, but I feel they should probably make the second part of the fifth season its last.

I'm currently watching two other series at the mo: The Borgias, and Taboo. The first I've seen multiple times. The second is a BBC drama starring Tom Hardy, swaggering around Napoleonic-era London like a mad bastard, while battling the East India Company and others over a piece of land on the west coast of Canada, which promises fortune in trade in China for the one who can possess it. I'm enjoying it, but it suffers from being a BBC production: if it was a HBO show, it could probably go darker and grittier, which it would benefit from.

I've recently bought the first two seasons of Peaky Blinders, which I'll get to soon. I'm around ten years behind the times, but hey. I also need to watch the second season of Mayor of Kingstown.

It gives it the conclusion it sorely needed, and does a fine job of it.
Itís not an explosive ending, much like how The Wild West just sort of stopped at the right time.

Garrett Dillahunt actually comes back to play a third character purely for a cameo.

Timothy Olyphant is arguably the greatest TV leading man of our generation off the back of Deadwood and Justified.
Justified is one of the best shows ever made. It’s right up there with the very best. Every season a classic.

He does a far better job of picking TV roles than those for film, that is for sure.

Picard S3 E09

SPOILER: show
Much feels at seeing the old set/ship again. Show really punching me in the nostalgia. I really wish this was S1 of the show and we didn't have to wait until S3 to get this.

Then you could still have had three seasons, but with the two after this being better.

Feel like the S1 & 2 characters like Rafi/Seven have very much been "thrown under" the unstoppable nostalgia force, but are still "just around" because they were "part of the cast" of the first two seasons. I don't mind them being pushed to the side because one didn't need to exist, and Seven is good to see but just in the wrong nostalgia party.

Also kinda feel a bit "bummed" at Borg ending up the big bad again, feel they are a bit "played". I actually "kind of liked" what they ended up doing in S2 with making Allison Pill a "good" Borg Queen and them wanting to join the Federation.... was a nice "change of pace".....

Picard stuff too

SPOILER: show
I was kinda hoping that the big bad may have been someone from the continuum and that Q had been holding them back the whole time out of his respect and love for Picard. Not really a spoiler but yeah. Borg again. Kinda anticlimactic how Jack was so easily "assimilated" too. Couldn't even put up a fight.

I'm all up to date with season 3 of Star Trek: Picard and it is such a significant improvement on the previous two seasons, which were just bollocks.

It almost feels like a different show, which I assume is down to someone new taking over at the helm. Whomever is now in charge is clearly a fan of the IP, rather than wanting to use it purely as a vehicle for pushing 'the message.'

The show is still hamstrung to a certain point by the abysmal choices made in the previous two seasons, but if the IP is managed like season 3 from now on I think we'll see some good stuff develop.

SPOILER: show
My only real gripe is with having the Borg as the big bad once again. Voyager pretty much neutered the Borg as a scary villain, and this could have been an opportunity to do something more creative.

Also, the whole Enterprise-D is a bit much. I've enjoyed some of the fan service, but this went a bit too far.

I actually mean to re-watch it all once it reaches a crescendo.
It’s as original in performance as it is in description, and that is saying a lot.
Bill Hader just knows good comedy.

Finished the third and final season of Star Trek: Picard. It almost makes up for the tripe that were seasons 1 and 2. Thankfully, they did not indulge in any cheap meaningless deaths of one or more of the TNG crew.

A lot of things were better than Mando season 3. For instance, Golden Girls season three was probably better than Mando season 3.

Perhaps it is my love for Jeri Ryan, who is still rockin' it in her 50s, but I'd like to see more Captain Seven.

If future series are helmed by Terry Matalas, I'm down for more ST in this post-Picard timeline. Just no more Borg, please.
