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.
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.
Finished Star Wars Rebels (Season 2) on March 28, 2017.
March 26, 2017 – We finished Luke Cage.
Currerbell started on the other side of the room, then the couch behind me, then beside me as the series progressed.
I think that speaks volumes about the quality of the show. We look forward to season two.
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.
Watched the last episode of BBC’s excellent The Musketeers on February 3, 2017.
The third series was the last and I appreciate that they gave each of the characters a send off.
We watched Still Life: A Three Pines Mystery on January 8, 2017.
Currer has read the entire Louise Penny “Inspector Armand Gamache” series and so we had high hopes for this adaptation, however when stacked against the other serialized crime fiction offerings this one fell short.
This one was a surprise – we watched Love & Friendship on October 3, 2016 and I at least liked it more then I thought I would.
Not as in, “he doesn’t like Jane Austen adaptations” but as in, “he loves Jane Austen adaptions” and thought this might not measure up.
We watched “Return 0” – the final of the series Person of Interest – on October 1, 2016.
Currer and I finished the last season, last episode of Castle on June 15, 2016.
We both enjoyed the show and I appreciated the characters throughout; there were some lows but overall fantastic.
