    What Chinese shows are you watching, and how are you watching it? I'm a Chinese language learner, and I've always struggled to find anything worthwhile to watch.

    I started watching The Looming Tower on Hulu. It's excellent.

    Just started Ghost Wars on Netflix. It's so bad it's good. I'd been waiting for that kind of cheese, ever since the first season of Once Upon a Time. Decent time waster. I've no energy for anything overly serious and this is alright.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns to FOX on Sunday. With Marc Evan Jackson (aka Shawn from The Good Place, for those of you who watch that) guest-starring once again. I'm excited. And the new slot on Sunday (8.30pm ET, I believe) should pull in some good numbers. Really should, because if it doesn't then I fear that cancellation might be in the very near future of this wonderful show.

    I've had a hard time committing to watching this. One: Drew Barrymore, Two: Zombie anything has been overdone at this point. I feel like everyone is riding on the coat tails of The Walking Dead.

    I have in the past really liked: Dead Set, which was a mini-series on Channel 4.
    I've liked The Walking Dead like the first five seasons.
    But.. I haven't liked anything else. I feel like they're trying too hard.

    Probably not appropriate for this thread, but I began watching Battlestar Galactica again after nearly ten years away from the series. Maybe it's the nostalgia goggles I'm definitely not wearing, but I still seem to love it to bits.

    But holy fuck is Starbuck a Mary Sue. I didn't know what this was a decade ago, but I do now. And my god is it just... cringe.

    Ace pilot, ace sniper, ace interrogator, survives way more shit then she should ... just - good lord.

    Yea, if I remember correctly. Just... her character design flawed. Everyone wants to sleep with her, she can beat up everyone in a fight.

    She's a human Swiss Army knife.

    Just finished S2 of Santa Clarita Diet (which you can find on Netflix, btw.). I think it’s safe to say that this show has now found its stride and vastly improves on an already good, but sometimes meandering and slightly messy S1. The chemistry between the show’s main characters (Timophy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, Liv Hewson and Skylar Gizondo) is great, and the strong supporting cast delivers consistently great performances.

    I‘ll try to write up a more detailed review at some point (probably next weekend after I‘ve turned in my current paper), but for now let it be known that this show is tremendous fun.

    The thread for those interested.

    I watched all of S1 and enjoyed it well enough, but stalled out in S2. Finally got around to watching all of S2 about a month ago, and I'm still enjoying it well enough. There are some peculiarities that can be hard to overlook if you have a background in any kind of finance or politics/law, but it wasn't bad enough for me to refuse to finish. S3 is currently ongoing if I'm not mistaken?

    The narration is really sloppy with the actors talking like they live on earth. It's yet another DC teen show only produced with mostly UK actors. The 3 black Kryptonians make it look like it's done to push their SJW agenda. Good it's a mediocre one I feel no regrets missing.

    Can't remember the name, but I'm fairly certain that there was a "black" island city state on Krypton (basically a Wakanda parallel), which has been canon since like.... the 60s or something. So your point there is a bit silly.

    Can't argue with the show not being very good though. It is watchable at its best and cringey at its worst.

    I don’t think black kryptonians is the issue...it’s that they are integrated into that kryptonian society as opposed to their isolationist city.

    I’d have to reread the comic but I thought they were purposefully segregated. Honestly don’t care though.

    Show is terribad.

    I went and googled it because it was going to bug me otherwise. The city state was called Vathlo and although isolated in old issues, a Vathlonian integration into the other city states, specifically Kandor, was canonized in the 2000s.

    Fair enough. Its not really an issue IMO.

    Are there situations where minorities are shoe horned in without regards to plot? Sure...but this situation really doesn't vibe with thtat.
    Its just a crappy show regardless.
