    Star Wars The Clone Wars

    Finished the whole thing, all seven seasons.

    Have to say I enjoyed the vast majority of it. Obviously, it has its stinkers (basically any episodes with Jar Jar) but there are also some absolute bangers in there.

    I have to give a special mention to the final four episodes though - they could easily have release those four episodes as a stand-alone feature and I honestly think it would be regarded as one of the best Star Wars movies.

    Truly stunning.

    The show overall gets a solid 8/10, but those final four episodes of season 7 are the easiest 10/10 Iíve ever given anything.

    Ted lasso

    Got offered free apple TV and ignored the offer, but remembered this was recommended here so joined.

    It is now 3:30 in the morning... fuck I love this. Binged in one night, so nice to see a... Nice tv show. Reminds me of parks and rec, just wonderful.

    10/10

    The Mandalorian on Disney+

    Iím up to ep 6 of season 2, but Iím done.

    This has a serious identity crisis. The script is aimed squarely at 8 year olds. The off-hand killing clearly isnít. Empire forces are composed squarely of mentally disabled children and the main charactersí glee and satisfaction at beating them when they just bumble about and fail to hit anything is... dubious at best. The main characters themselves are unlikeable and annoying. The Mandalorian himself is the only passable person around, too bad they show his face.

    It looks good, however. Even if itís a straight rip off of Firefly, down to the way the main dudeís ship looks.

    So yeah, terrible.

    3/10

    Mystery Road (S1)

    A fine recommendation from this very thread. An aboriginal detective is called into a small outback town to solve a missing persons case. It's very good, slow paced, but manages to keep things interesting. Everyone does a decent job, although the local sergeant made it for me. It was bothering me who she was and it turns out that she was the terrorist leader in Who Dares Wins - one of my most watched films as a youngster.

    7/10

    Haji/giri - missed this when it came out. BBC now on netflix. Rather marvellous yakuza tale set in london and tokyo.

    Meh, terrible writing from halfway onwards.

    Iím 4 episodes into Ozark and loving it, well impressed with Jason Bateman.

    I remember one scene in Haji/Giri (can't remember what episode, I think it was either the last or second last) that reminded me of something Bryan Fuller apparently said to directors of the Hannibal TV show: "remember, you are not making an episode of TV, you are making a pretentious art film".

    I thought that worked really well with Hannibal. This... less so.

    Still Game: series 9. Very good and maybe not the best series but still solid stuff and the ending was very touching. I will miss the inhabitants of Craiglang.. Except I won't, as I have started from the beginning again.
    its a very wecloming show for sure.

    Calling the writing there terrible while praising Ozark amuses me. I enjoy Ozark, but it's definitely closer to a guilty pleasure. Although at 4 episodes in maybe it hasn't devolved into sheer silliness yet.

    Eh, what's wrong with Ozark?

    It's a blatant Breaking Bad rip off, but it's pretty good I think. Certainly better than the torrent of young adult fantasy drama and/or superhero guff that netflix seems to drown under.

    Talking of minority opinions: I've come to the conclusion that ITV does better original drama than BBC. Fight me.

    Star Trek lower decks season one.

    It gets better but if that the best Trek at the moment they need to try harder.

    7 out 10 hopefully we get more cameos next season.

    Speaking of young adult fantasy drama guff, I watched Tribes of Europa over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    24 - Season 1, 9/10.

    Tense stuff with great acting and plenty of nailbiting moments. A few bits felt a bit strung out, notably with Teri and Kim, but generally the pacing was strong and plotlines didn't outstay their welcome. It stuck the landing, with the last few episodes being as strong as anything early on.

    Snowpiercer season 2

    I enjoyed it. It's pretty cheesy at times, which is pretty unavoidable given its high concept. The season ended up being quite surprising at times; it didn't, as I initially feared, just copy the first, having a few genuinely unexpected twists and turns.

    Characters were strong and the heroes have flaws, and on the odd occasion where a character's actions felt determined by the story rather than what a real person might do the actors do a great job of selling it.

    7/10 overall. A few episodes individually reached higher, and I'm very much looking forward to season 3

    Dont see it myself if anything it got better as it broke out of the confines of the genre and had some great writing but have heard that elsewhere so its clearly marmite.

    Put it this way i suspect you either love that bit in the finale or hated it.

    The finale was fine, what bothered me was the way the writing went when suddenly you had one fantastic coincidence after another which ruined the believability for me.

    Ozark is defo a poor man's Breaking Bad. For me it's a consistent 6 or 7/10. I wouldn't say it's "good" but it's watchable. I'm invested enough but I also feel like if it ended tomorrow I wouldn't be bothered.

    Mindhunter was Netflix's star but they fucked that.

    Marcella series 1 and 2 - absolute complete toss saved by Anna friel and a good soundtrack.
    Literally plot holes everywhere, characters whose storyline go nowhere, dark for the sake of being dark, and in series 2 an absolutely bizarre ending to set up a next season that feels utterly bonkers.

    It's a Breaking Bad rip off written by people who don't have half the talent of the Breaking Bad writers imo. I still enjoy it as I said, and it's written in a way that makes it compelling, but to my mind it's clearly not 'quality' TV. It is perhaps better than a lot of the sorts of things you're mentioning, but that's not saying much.
