Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

I can't endorse or recommend the US Love Island reality series. And most of the episodes are utter mindless crap but damn, tonight's episode was top notch TV.

The premise of the show is that a group of random men and women are "paired" up to find love. Well after several weeks of getting to know each other, the producers in a surprise twist, split the men and women and isolate the men to a duplicate "Love Island" and introduce new group of women to the men and new group of men to the women. The idea is to test the various original relationships. A week later (tonight), each person gets to decide if they want to couple up with a person from the new group or keep their original partner. Neither original partner knows what choice the other will make.

Tonight the results were revealed along with all the resulting drama. The fireworks were glorious.

Episode 3 of Lovecraft country was so bad that I almost quit watching it but 4 was a little better and 5 was pretty good. Not sure how I feel about the show. It really isn't going anywhere right now

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

thanks for the Lovecraft update. spouse and i finished ep3 last night and it was def a departure from the previous two...was wondering where it might go.
i haven't read a ton of Lovecraft but wasn't he all about writing short stories? the episode format of modern tv is tailor-made to using that large body of work as inspiration.
does anybody know if the theme of the episodes references any of his written work?

Re: General TV Discussion and Thread for Shows Without A Thread Thread

wow...watched ep4 of Lovecraft last night and it just didn't do it for me. probably my least favorite of the four so far. i'm sure we'll watch at least a few more but i'm not very optimistic.

If you enjoy true crime stuff, the 3-part miniseries Deswas very, very good, and Tennant was fantastic as Dennis Nilsen, a Scottish serial killer. The case, and especially his confession, are pretty bizarre.

I've watched the first 6 episodes and still don't know how I feel about it. It's well acted and weird in a good way, but I'm starting to get some Lost vibes in that they've introduced a bunch of stuff that doesn't feel like it's going to pay off in a satisfactory way. It's interesting enough that I'll finish out the rest of the season.

+1 on Raised by Wolves

I thought the first two episodes were brilliant... the rest not so much. The storyline went very meh imo which is a shame as it seemed so promising at the start

The show is based off a book of the same name (not by Lovecraft) and my understanding is that its been following the books fairly closely

I didn't like Ep5, I thought it was pointless. I have liked all the episodes till then though.

Has anyone seen The Third Day? I just saw a preview for it and have no idea what it's about.

Pretty insane that Schitt's Creek is absolutely crushing at the Emmy's tonight. I mean it was ok, but wasn't all that.

Been meaning to watch it for a while. Think this has pushed it to the top of my viewing queue.

It's good, but shouldn't have crushed like that. They were just giving it some love because it was their final season.

I think the first 2 were directed by Ridley Scott so that could potentially account for the drop in quality.

I'm still enjoying it but it's starting to have a walking dead feel where characters behave in ways that make no logical sense and sort of meander around for episodes at a time. I do still think the 2 android characters are quite interesting however I could care less about the humans.
