  1. A show I've been waiting for is S2 of Bordertown aka "Sorjonen" as it is known in Finland where it is made. S1 was on Netflix last year and it was great. Now the second season is out, but it seems not yet picked up by Netflix or anyone else. I hope this changes soon as S1 was very entertaining.
  2. Has there been anything written about how Netflix perceives the show in terms of overall viewership?
  3. I think it happened like you said. On The Talking Dead, he put out this whole story about getting the call from Angela Kang and being at least mildly surprised about it blah blah blah blah blah. No, I think he pushed for them to write him out because in that scene, it was frankly a bit odd for him to stay back the way he did. It seemed a little bit forced in my opinion. And the only dramatic purpose his death served was to give the Whisperer dude a chance to bob and weave and thereby reveal that he was more than just some walker. But they could have found a red shirt for that or just done something different. Anyway, it just kind of annoys me that Gimple wasted this actor's talents for what, 3 seasons or something?
  4. It was tiresome to watch her. I couldn't wait for her to get off the screen. It was both the character and the actor in my opinion.
  5. David Dawson really is one heck of an actor.
  6. Alfred badly miscalculated. The entire story could have been avoided if he had simply appealed to Uhtred's sense of honor rather than trying to manipulate and force him one more time to swear another oath of loyalty.
  7. I like the time jump, but I feel like it should have been even longer so that Judith was aged up even more. I can't really buy into an eight or ten year old badass. She's just too vulnerable physically. All the crap they did to Rick, impaling him on rebar, then the blood loss, and then the explosion and being washed down the river and somehow still alive - I just feel like it was too much and not really necessary. All that really needed to happen was for the helicopter to take him away. All the other stuff simply strained credibility and was kind of a waste of time.
  8. I watched the first episode of Manifest and kind of liked it but I'm not sure it has staying power. Obviously, they're going for that Lost audience.
  9. Watched the first episode of New Amsterdam. It's dumb and cliche as hell. I'm not really into doctor shows anyway, so I'm done with it.
  10. I thought Godless was just about perfect.

    Jack Ryan - Amazon Prime Series

    I watched the whole thing over two days. It was enjoyable enough, but I wasn't especially impressed. I'd give it 2 1/2 stars out of four. Frankly, I've never understood Hollywood's persistence with the Jack Ryan character. I always thought he was very bland in the Clancy books, more of a character model in some ways than an actual character. His motives are truth, justice, and the American way. Yay!

    Fargo Season 4

    Thanks for the update. I've been wondering when we'll hear something. Maybe fall 2019 is when we'll see it, though I suppose 2020 is a possibility as well.
  13. I think HBO could produce more content, without it being a big deal, but not at the scale of Netflix. Someone should remind ATT execs what happened to the golden goose. A reasonable amount of new content would be something like 2 more hour-long dramas per year and 3-4 half-hour comedies. Presumably, they could get more involved in licensing foreign-language content as well. I think they should be very careful about producing too much GoT content. Of course, it's hard to say how much is "too much". Again, one is reminded of the golden goose.
  14. Well, if they've killed off Madison, and they don't tell us how or why she died until the end of the half-season, or even the full-season, then what they've basically done is dedicated all of those episodes to rebooting the show.
  15. Thanks for the info. I wonder if that kind of financial outlay is feasible within Amazon's economic model? If the vision is to offer it as part of the Prime service, then at some level you have to have a metric that gives you some sort of clue as to how well any particular offering is helping with driving those kinds of memberships, and I have absolutely no idea what that kind of math might look like.
