TV shows watched in 2019

Just finished The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and truly loved it. I have a few small complaints like some poor CGI and Mark Hamill being too obvious (and sounding like The Joker!) but on the whole I thought it was brilliant. At times I was reminded of Lord of the Rings, and in many ways I think this series was better than the original film. I really hope this gets a season 2.

Agree 100%. It was IMO definitely better than the movie. I have to say thought I didn’t notice any poor CGI. I thought they did very well at keeping it to a minimum (although their promise that it was only going to be used to remove puppeteers proved to be false).

Pretty much binge watched good omens, which I thought was brilliant. I have not read the book but will do as soon as it arrives. ( A friend suggested I read the book.)

Season 2 of The Letdown. As a total disaster-parent I love this show. Very funny, touching, bit awkward, quality show.

La casa Del Papel: amazing show, you have to watch it in Spanish tho, only that way you get the full experience. 

Downton Abbey: beautiful, great stories, great acting, the scenery and costumes are very well done, also a beautiful soundtrack.

The Umbrella academy: funny, witty, great action scenes, the story is intriguing, can't wait to see the end, also great choice of songs

Marianne  - If you like scary/gory this is the series for you. It's that scary it makes any Stephen King adaptation look like Cbeebies. But it is compelling and well written. My recommendation is to watch in French with subtitles. The dubbed version is pants.

The Dark Crystal AOF

Agree with what the others said, it's a brilliant series and there is little wrong with it.  I also thought it had a LOTR vibe, especially the last episode.  I love The Heretic and UrGoh.

Love this show it is so crazy and totally different to any other comic book series.

I'm pretty glad it's over to be honest.

The Confession - I see Martin Freeman in the cast list and I already have a reason to watch. :lol:

Bit of a slow burner to start but a very thought provoking series with a stellar performance by all the cast.

Finished the last season of Orange Is the New Black. Ooft hard to watch at times because of its social relevance, but that's just one of the many reasons why it was so brilliant. Sad it's over but what a show!

Getting up to speed with The Good Place.

Gave Derry Girls a whirl. Funnier than I thought it would be. 

Also watched a few episodes of House for the first time in my life.

Oh no, someone's sick.

It's probably this.

Uh oh, it wasn't that and now they're worse.

What could it be, hmm?

Maybe it's lupus?

Shut up Billy Kennedy from Neighbours, it's not lupus.

I think it's this.

That? But if it's not that, the treatment will kill them.

We should do it anyway.

Ok, fine.

Let's wait anxiously.

Oww, my leg hurts.

Hooray, it was that, they're not dead!

Let's celebrate.

No, grr.

Well I honestly can't argue with that but you could apply the same format to any program!

Any program except Neighbours. It's a constant cavalcade of curveballs. Will someone fake a stalker to get guy to fall for her? Will someone be reunited with their transgender child, only to leave because he can't handle that his son is now his daughter? Will someone drive a car into a marquee because he thinks his Dad doesn't care about him?

And that's just all in the last week.

Pretty Little Liars. Actually isn't too bad. I was quick to judge it without having seen it but it's really gripping.

Elementary.  I've just watched the final episode and it was predictable but a good ending to the series.  I've enjoyed watching it for it's own merits and whilst I think BBC Sherlock is better, I've never regarded it as a competition between the 2 and Elementary did their own thing and did it well.  I still can't say I particularly like Lucy Liu but it was a very enjoyable show never the less.

How could I forget that I've began and finished Horrible Histories for the first time. I grew up on the books, but not the show. It's incredible.

Mindhunter S1 & 2, Netflix.  This is a really enjoyable series about the FBI BSU and their development of a system of classification and analysts of serial killers in order to help solve current crimes.

Although this is a fictionalised version and the main characters have been created for the show it's very accurate.  They go out and interview famous incarcerated killers and the attention to detail in the casting of the actors playing the killers is superb, the resemblances are uncanny.  Both series are driven by real killers and crimes and it's fascinating, though disturbing to watch and made more accurate by the fact that the main cast aren't portrayed as super agents who are perfect and can do no wrong, they are played as realistic people with issues like anyone, in fact rather than having everyone be ultra likeable, one of the main agents is kind of a dick.
