    Vikings XII: It's not History, It's Hirstory [SPOILERS]

    But, but, they have THE LAST KINGDOM!!!! And that should have plenty of material for at least another 4 seasons. Unless this Valhalla show is going to go full bonkers fantasy with gods and all, I don't see why they're doing this. I'm worried about TLK now. Also there's a comedy series, but maybe not original Netflix production, called Norsemen.

    The Mandalorian (Spoiler Thread)

    https://collider.com/the-mandalorian-release-schedule-disney-plus/ Almost every Friday but there's one Wednesday, Dec. 18. No idea why.

    Rank your 2019 TV shows throughout the year

    Updates Dark - powerful, enigmatic, mind-bending, with an excellent cast, and well-written characters; easily as strong as season 1, if not better. Stranger Things - some of the plot premises were more ridiculous than anything we got so far, and the 80s stereotyping reached new levels; but I loved the character chemistry between multiple groups, it had tight pacing, great acting, good visuals, and as always a great soundtrack. The Boys - this was pretty damn good. Great premise, and for the most part excellently executed; a lot of setup that needs a second season, so really glad it got renewed. Kobra Kai - at least as excellent as season 1; really well written characters, and good plot twists; some of the stuff is exaggerated and unrealistic, but it didn't diminish my enjoyment of the show The Man in the High Castle - It has some weak and weird moments, but plenty of solid stuff, too, and I love seeing Nazis get their comeuppance. Jessica Jones - a really strong finish, for now at least; much better than season 2, and an improvement of secondary characters, while Ritter's performance is as good as ever. Zone Blanche - sometimes silly, but I really enjoy the characters, the mysteries and the atmosphere; it started slow, but built up really strongly; the end was almost a series finale, but I hope it's not. Kingdom - one of this year's surprises; a Korean GoT, if you will, with an interesting plot, written fairly well, though silly at times. The action has good build up and tension. Not much character development, though, other than the main character. Russian Doll - the first episode nearly turned me off, but it picked up after that, with a strong mix of dark humor and close-to-the-heart messages; not really sure about the ending, a lot of ways to interpret it, which kinda makes it fun Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance - quite good, with strong visuals and music, though the puppetry didn't always work for me. A pretty good fantasy story, overall. Marvel's Agents of SHIELD - not as strong as the previous two seasons; while the stakes were supposed to be high, they didn't feel that high, given past plots. I enjoyed the last batch of episodes. The Punisher - a mix of good and bad, strong on the action, but the plot has issues; the discussion in the show's thread has all the points. Carnival Row - I had low expectations for this, so was pleasantly surprised that it was better than I thought it'd be. Still a ways to go, not enamored yet. iZombie - a good final season, and solid final episode; the season overall had a mix of its usual silliness, while it built up nicely towards the end. The Umbrella Academy - this one was a bit disappointing; given the character driven narrative, the characters really weren't likable; it took a while to really get going, too; good visuals and music. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan - this should have been better than it was. Jack Ryan needs to be less of a guy on par with special forces people, and more on the analytics side. And there was less realism this season, than the previous season. Game of Thrones - enough has been said already; really disappointed with this final season; but there was still strong quality in the visual effects, cinematography, and music departments. Designated Survivor - shorter, tighter, with a bigger budget, I think, and allowance for swear words. But it was still all over the place most times, mainly because the writers wanted to give the major characters stuff to do outside the main arc. Almost not sure why it's still called Designated Survivor. Love, Death + Robots - some of the episodes were great, visually and story-wise; others were meh. Star Trek Discovery - I really hoped too much from this; some new enjoyable characters, and a few really solid episodes; pretty good on the visuals; but it's riddled with plot holes. Hanna - I found I didn't care much about the characters, though the actor performances were generally solid; I liked the filming locations, and the story was sometimes engaging, but I didn't find it riveting; even the action scenes fluctuated between good and stupid. Supergirl - as silly in its execution as usual, but the plot and villains were better this season. New fall episodes are worse than what we got before. I'll likely stop watching once the Crisis episodes are released. Project Blue Book - disappointing; a lot of cringe worthy dialogue, and the mystery portions are pretty blunt and obvious. The popular meme "I'm not saying it's aliens, but it's aliens" really applies to this show. It's not The X Files, if anyone is wondering. Arrow - when at the end of last year, we had the prison plot, I had hopes for this; these hopes were quickly dashed by yet another round of circle jerking drama, weak villains, and stupid flashbacks forwards. Glad it's ending, will watch until the end. Watching The Mandalorian, and there will be more entries in December.

    The Mandalorian (Spoiler Thread)

    I was thinking about that, too. Maybe Sifo-Dyas thought about cloning Jedi originally, and secretly got some DNA from Yoda.

    LOTR prequel TV series 2.0

    I think most of us have been thinking, and likely hoping, it would be this.

    The Mandalorian (Spoiler Thread)

    There's speculation that Yoda's race could be naturally strong in the force, and in opposition to the Sith race. We'll see. And while they apparently age slowly, we don't know how slow is the development of their connection to the force. This is all a setup now, if it's developed sensibly, it won't be that stupid.

    Jack Ryan - Amazon Prime Series

    Do you truly expect them to film in Venezuela?

    To be fair, animated shows are 30 minutes with commercials.

    Watched episode 2. I liked it more than 1. Relic is right that it feels like a live-action cartoon, or maybe even a RPG video game, but it's not bad. It's good, it's fun, it's a space western Star Wars. I really liked the Jawa plot, and beast fight was solid, and I less bothered in this episode that he didn't remove his helmet at all.

    Except this scene showed the man's not perfect. Up until then, the dude was a badass, but glad to see he's not a master of everything.

    @Kalbear Have you watched Rebels past the first bunch of episodes?

    The Mandalorian (Spoiler Thread)

    I liked it, though I would say the end gun fight + reveal and the cold start were the highlight. I don't recall Mandalorians wearing helmets all the time in private in Rebels or Clone Wars. That whole thing made me think of Predators. The Imperial guy's speech was meant to feel deep, but honestly not sure what we're suppose to get out of it. It has a mix of nice polish and grit, which makes it feel weird a bit.

    Star Wars: The Circle is Almost Complete

    Public service announcement: certain Verizon customers can get Disney+ for free for the first year. I have the Unlimited plan which got me this deal. There are other ways, like switching to Verizon Fios. End of announcement. (Glad I remembered this so I signed up for Disney+ today)
