Erm… October Faction comic vs Netflix adaptation:





If you thought Triss was drastic, think again.

Storywise… Plenty to number, I'll mention one: Presidio Foundation doesn't exist in the comic.

My vote? Skippit and stick with the comic (if you're interested at all).

Yeah, I started the series, made it most of the way through, but I've just lost interest. I'm not going to bother finishing it. I'll give the comic a try though.

I wasn't that impressed with the first few episodes of The Good Place either, but it gets a lot better and in season 2 I thought it was one of the best shows on tv. It's not always perfect but they do expand a lot on the initial gimmicky premise and take things in many unexpected directions.

Third season of Killing Eve is coming in April. The SlyFly channel has started posting ads for Vagrant Queen -- another drama based on a comic series -- coming in March.

Not sure why but I kinda don't have time for that one among other shows I'm overburden with. What's it about anyway? Two girls want to kill each other but fall in love with each other? Seen something like that already recently, but with two males.

That aside… For everyone who's stalling Disney+ subscription till they add Clone Wars final season and still didn't watch the musthave plushie spinoff:

I've both read 11/22/63 and seen the series. Both are worth checking out, my preference would be for the book form.

After rinsing my eyes out thoroughly after attempting to watch Discard, I re-watched Orville with some friends and regained my sanity/composure. If you want to watch decent sci-fi, I suggest Orville or Expanse!!

One is a psychopathic assassin being hunted by MI5. The other works for British intelligence as a paper pusher, but has a previously unrecognized knack for solving mysteries. They become strangely obsessed with each other during the hunt.

And being written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge from Fleabag, it has a great sense of style and interplay to the dialog.

Finished His Dark Materials . . . . meh

Visually spectacular
Story plodded
acting was so so at best

Basically they stretched out the book to 8 episodes and it totally felt like it. They should have added 4 episodes and told the story of all three books. Don't know if I can come back for the next season with the smiling giggly lead girl. Remember how Dakota Fanning was screaming through out war of the worlds??? Well the lead in this series is damn near smiling through out.

Tried out the first two episodes of Lock and Key. It was okay, but I am distracted and thinking about heading over to the Amazon Prime series Hunter.

Yeah I tried Dark Materials, gave it two episodes then bailed. Just didn't seem like a show for me. I've not checked out Locke and Key yet, but it's on my list.

This show is ATROCIOUS. I mean, not ‘so bad it is good’, just one of the worst sitcoms I have ever watched … poorly written, awful characters, bad acting, and just overall not funny or engaging in any way.
Have there been any decent sitcoms of late? Modern family was funny during first seasons, but then I lost intrest. Later seasons seemed so forced and less genuine.

Atleast classic shows such as frasier, friends, seinfield, office and blackadder made me laugh. These new ones seem to be lacking something… On the other hand I really haven't been following this genre much.

Yeah. I agree. I like James Franko but his character was so selfish sometimes. There is a different kind of main character in the book
