Empire - S3 E6-7

These were too fun episodes. The hack stuff was a little cheesy but it still made for a hype episode. The twist that happens at the end is a little stupid. Seemed like a twist just for the sake of twists, but we'll see how it all plays out. Then there was episode 7 which had Cookie trying to impress Angelo's mother. There's some fun moments in this episodes as well, especially during the dinner scenes.

The Man in the High Castle Season 2
Overall the season was okay, nothing fantastic just okay. I feel like the show definitely needs a third season but that it should probably be its last.

Next on the Watchlist
Narcos, Sherlcok and The Office US Rewatch.

Edit: Tried watching two episodes of Sherlock but I just couldn't get into it.

And it appears the same with Narcos, not feeling it.

Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans S2 and Gundam X.

Just recently finished Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex seasons 1 and 2. Seeing the live action trailer got me interested in rewatching the series I hadn't seen since it aired on Adult Swim.

Timeless - S1 E7-10
Fun little batch of episodes here. The story is actually starting to get more interesting. I was happy to see the Pittsburgh shoutout in episode 7 with Fort Duquesne and all that. I was also really pleased with the Bonnie and Clyde episode. The two that played the legendary bandits (forget who they are) were really great and they really captured the wild relationship that Bonnie and Clyde had. I was pleasantly surprised. I also thought the midseason finale was strong, leaving us with one hell of a hangover. The writing still continues to be a little corny, but hey, it's network television so you can't expect too much in that department.

Pitch - S1 E9-10
These two episodes focus pretty hard on Lawson and the trade rumors. Things get pretty tense and a lot of relationships seem to be on the fritz. The midseason finale left things in a pretty dark place, which makes me worry about the future of the show to be honest. I'm not sure the show has been put up for renewal, so I wouldn't be surprised if the events that took place in these two episodes are slowly moving towards a series finale. We'll see. I'm still enjoying the show, but I'm not sure there's a lot of buzz around it to keep it afloat.

Empire - S3 E8-9
These two episodes are more of what Empire does best, family drama to the max. There are twists and turns galore, so much so that it sometimes seems a little too much. I'm still having a good time with it though because the characters keep me coming back and there are a lot of "oh shit" moments sprinkled throughout. The final scene was a little surprising, coming out of left field. It's going to make some major waves next season if they truly follow through with it. Should be exciting.

Fuller House - Season 2

I was not a huge fan of the first season, as I thought it leaned a little too hard on nostalgia as a crutch. So I went into Season 2 thinking they would move on past the nostalgia for the better, which they did (for the most part). However, I still didn't think it was that strong of a season. The show plays way too hard into 90's sitcom tropes. Stuff like flashbacks, fourth-wall breaking moments, and an obnoxious laugh track really overstay their welcome. The writing is also pretty bad, in that it tries a little too hard. Some of the pop culture references don't stick the landing and some of the jokes fall a little too flat.

What keeps the show afloat are it's character moments. Sure, there's a ton of sappy moments and group hugs, but that's really what this show is about. It's what Full House was about as well. Sometimes these moments are a little cheesy, but it all works out in the end. I also have to give a shoutout to Fernando and Jimmy Gibbler, played by Juan Pablo Di Pace and Adam Hagenbuch respectively. These two had some of the best moments in the season and they were actually really funny for most of their appearances. There's also a ton of guest appearances from the old cast as well as others like the New Kids on the Block.

I have a feeling that next season is going to focus on DJ and Stephanie's relationships, plotlines that I wish they could move on from. Either way, I'll still be interested to see what they do next, if they go for another season. As of now, I don't think Fuller House was the best idea but I'll give them one more season two turn things around. The first season was pretty bad but this season was okay. It's cheesy and trope-y as hell but it's alright for what it is. Also...fucking get Mary-Kate Olsen on the show so they can stop making bad jokes about it.

Hip-Hop Evolution - Season 1

This mini docuseries was right up my alley. The doc didn't necessarily cover rap and hip-hop as a whole, but it mainly focused on the origins of hip-hop and how it evolved in it's early days. I thought director Darby Wheeler (Shad) did a great job at telling the story and milked some interesting tidbits out of some of these rappers. He managed to get quite the roster to do the doc. Rappers and artists like Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, Run-DMC, Ice-T, and Ice Cube all make appearances, along with a host of other landmark artists and rappers. Darby even lands an interview with the originator of gangsta rap, Schoolly D. It would have been nice to have Dr. Dre on board, but that's probably a tall order considering the amount of work the guy's got himself into these days. Anyway, this was a well done documentary (short at only four episodes) that does a fine job at laying out the foundations of hip-hop and the steps the artform took in it's early days to propel it to where it is today.
