The Succession is really nice, surprised to not see any mention of it. deeply flawed ambitious people trying to grab power drama in a business setting. It's very well-written

Just finished Homeland (sadface hope for season 9) my next stop Succesion. Does anybody know which stream service is it available on?

Yellowstone never ceases to intrigue me. I am really surprised that a show about cowboys and protecting a ranch is this interesting... :facepalm:

Raised by Wolves is really growing on me. The CGI still looks like a PS4 game and the acting is so-so.
It also takes too long to tell the story while all the mysteries are building up, in danger of going nowhere.
But the story and lore/mythology is really intriguing, and at times so comically absurd that it's a joy to watch.
A quite original sci-fi world.

Severance is really well made, cinematically smooth and stylish, with great acting and solid world-building.
It's based on a very simple premise (the severance procedure) so it's in danger of becoming stale, keeping all the secrets interesting.

Peacemaker is solid. That's how you make a super-hero show. Absurd humour and loveable characters.

Star Trek: Picard, season 2. I watched maybe 3 episodes of the first season, didn't like it, and didn't watch any more. Season 2 is way better, IMO. I've watched 6 episodes so far, and every time I finish one I want to watch more. It's a new story, so I don't feel like I've missed anything by not watching the rest of season 1, which I'm glad of. I know it can take time for a show to hit its stride; hopefully season 1 was the crap one and it'll keep being good from now on.

Raised by Wolves has been cancelled. I'm not surprised, but a bit sad since it was a rare, original show.

Moon Knight was bland and uninteresting. A porridge of Egyptian hullabaloo lore with mental disease (some identity disorder) that has been used many times before. Might have been a good comedy but it's never funny.

Obi-Wan Kenobi looks very nice. The cinematography and aesthetics is closely inspired by the original films.
McGregor as protagonist is a delight. Young Leia is a (much too mature and) intelligent, sassy girl. A bit of a trope.
The story is pretty simple, 'conventional' and moves slowly. Episode 3 is especially uneventful until the end. Episode 4 is tedious with a predictable abduction event, and an ending that makes little sense.
Reva the inquisitor is a bit of a wild card. We learn little of her backstory apart from being an upstart, and apparently a favourite of Vader. Not sure what to think. Maybe it will make sense later. Right now the character seems a bit out of place.

I've never watched The Vampire Diaries or its sequels. I don't think I've seen main characters I have less sympathy for.
You've never seen it, but don't like it? One of those two statements has to be false.
