Amazing, rich, ambitious television from HBO.
Doesn’t always go where I expect.
And incredibly cinematic with fabulous acting.
I do wish sometimes I didn’t fear spoilers so much, I have a lot more to say.
I also think it’s a show like a lot of good rich shows since maybe “The Wire” that does very well from streaming and seeing the whole show.
There was a whole lot of times I was extraordinarily surprised on the show.
Will be very curious to see season 2 which rumor has won’t come out until 2018.
One of many televisions shows which far surprass anything I saw in the movies this year including: BrainDead (CBS/Amazon Prime) ****, Season 1 of Mr. Robot (USA/Amazon Prime) ****, season 2 was good but not as strong ***1/2, Stranger Things **** (Netflix), and Luke Cage (Netflix) ****. I also really enjoyed the second season of Mozart in the Jungle ***1/2 (Amazon Prime), Last Chance U ***1/2 (Netflix) and quite a number of documentaries.
I didn’t see much in the movie theater this year, partially because the experience is getting more annoying all the time. I liked Doctor Strange ***, I thought Captain America: Civil War was okay but overblown and in parts (like the ending) really ridiculous **1/2, and am in a big minority about Deadpool ** which I didn’t really like. I guess maybe because I enjoyed the Deadpool and Cable graphic novels so much. I can’t even think of anything else I saw at the movies this year besides the Marvel Universe. And that is honestly getting old to me. I will see Star Wars soon but usually I let my wife see things herself.
