Poldark (2015)

We finished the first series of Poldark on May 17th of this year.

We had taken a break about halfway through the season, reaching the point where most of the characters are in a state of general happiness.

What does that mean? When everyone’s happen you KNOW things will go wrong. Terrible wrong. Inexplicably wrong.

That did happen, but it was worth the watch. A view of the time period through the eyes of investment and commerce and how those things affect not only the individual but the entire community was a different angle on this type of drama and I really appreciated that.

A disappointing finale (ruined by the last scene, which reminded and summed up the negatives we had felt throughout the season) pointed in a direction that meant Currer and I won’t be continuing the series but as I said – it was worth it.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 – The Return

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 reboot on Netflix gave me just what I needed, when I needed it.

Work had been overwhelming and to be able to come home late and listen to the MST3K crew was perfect; Reptilicus (1961), Cry Wilderness (1987) and The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t (1966) were my favorites.

I watched the last one of this first reboot season, At the Earth’s Core (1976), on May 16th of this year.

Voltron: Legendary Defender, Season 2

Voltron Legendary Defender season 2

I finished the second season of Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender on January 22, 2017.

This season was better than the first (which is saying something), with the action moving quicker – season two had a few more episodes but it felt shorter than the season before it.

When Hagar asks for Price Lotor and the end of the season’s final episode … I didn’t quite get chills but it was awesome.
