I’ve ben watching a fair amount of TV over the last few weeks, although I’m behind on pretty much everything. There’s been a lot of great series. I don’t watch as much TV as I used to, but there’s a few shows that caught my eye so I had to give them a go.
House of the Dragon
As I know most people were, I was disappointed with the ending of Game of Thrones. I wasn’t as excited as House of the Dragon as I would have been if the ending wasn’t so poor, but I still had to give it a go. After about ten minutes of the first episode my hesitation was gone and I was completely hooked. I think it’s brilliant, and one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. The first season is a lot better than the first season of Game of Thrones, and didn’t let up at all. I can’t wait for season two.
The Rings of Power
I was very excited about The Rings of Power and I really loved the first two episodes, but at the same time since then I’ve found it very slow. I’ve only seen 6 episodes so far, and will eventually get round to watching more. After each episode I have a completely different reaction, either I love it or hate it. I’m hoping the rest of the series picks up a bit.
I love everything Star Wars, and it’s the one franchise that I can overlook every flaw and just enjoy it. That said, I have struggled a bit with Andor. I loved the first three episodes, and wrote a very glowing review for them when they first aired. Since then, I’ve only watched episode 4 and 5, and just kind of forgot that the show was even on until I started thinking about writing this post, which I guess means I wasn’t enjoying it that much. Episodes 4 and 5 were very slow and didn’t get me hooked in the way the first 3 did. I will get back to it, and probably wonder why I wasn’t up to date sooner. I think it’s something that would be better to binge watch.
What We Do in the Shadows – Season 4
Finally, the fourth season of What We Do in the Shadows has arrived in the UK, well the first two episodes have. I love this show so much. It’s incredibly funny and there hasn’t been a dull episode yet. After the brilliant season 3, I couldn’t wait for this to come back and then it just arrived on Disney Plus this week and I watched the first two episodes straight away. It hasn’t disappointed and I’m excited for the rest of the season.
Thanks for reading,
