[watching] What have you seen recently?

Season 4 of Lucifer on Netflix. Season 4 is one of the best of the Shows seasons so far. It still has its charm but with a little darker edge. Hopefully they will greenlight Season 5 as it ends on a very interesting thing.

Now off to binge Sneaky Pete Season 3 on Amazon. A great cast and a great story. Well recommended if you have not delved into the world of Sneaky Pete.
 
Is he the skinny fella from Breaking Bad? I like Better Call Saul and would be up for another spin off.
Giovanni Ribisi is Sneaky Pete. It is not a spin off to Breaking Bad. Season 1 has Brian Cranston as the Crime Lord, he also created the show as well . It is about a Conman who assumes the identity of his cellmate.

I must be one of the few people who have not seen Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul.
 
The last season of the "Game of Throngs" saga (all thrones overshadowed by throngs of plot holes), builds a strong case AGAINST allowing third parties with limited imagination to finish a plot on behalf of the original authour.

All the important characters are being shamefully deconstructed in this final series, as if the studio no longer understands the logical evolution of the hero and Villainy arcs in good storytelling. :-(

I am still enjoying GOT but yes it is not as good. Hope GRRM finishes the books.
 
Game of Thrones - I'm enjoying the ride, but I'm glad it's over soon. Is that damning with faint praise? :D

One to avoid - which I binged watched much to my horror - is Rebellion over on Netflix. Two seasons of about 10 hours total, about the Easter Rising in Ireland and the fight for Irish independence in the 1920s. Season one was a mix of action and soap opera, Season two was a mix of espionage and soap opera. In fact the soap opera element overshadowed the historical drama side (which is why I was watching, hoping episode after episode for drastic improvement). Its production values would have been ok in the 70s, but its no I Claudius, Tinker Tailor. Elizabeth R.
