recent television

Brand New Cherry Flavor: This is amazing. Also exceptionally disturbing and freaky and I don't even know what else. I kept finding myself wide-eyed and sitting up straight.

The Order: College werewolves and witches battle, well, mostly each other. A bunch of the charaters are quite likable, while some of them are just so clueless you end up shouting at them to not be so stupid. Ultimately it was just okay. Cancelled after 2 seasons, of course, and it's pretty clear why.

The Blacklist: I've been watching this since the begining, and I just got to the end of season 8 and honestly I'm not sure I'll bother anymore. I'm a little surprised they've kept up the whole "the princess is in another castle" thing with the secrets for so long, at this point it's just tedious, and it feels like they've done everything two or three times.

James Spader is excellent throughout though, it's often worth watching just for him.

Jupiter's Legacy: Classic 1950s superheroes in modern times, but also their origin story set in the 1950s. Extremely over-the-top - way too much, really. And there's a twist at the end that's just, okay whatever, sure, why not. If they actually make a second season I'm sure I won't bother.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: I finally made it through all of this, and in retrospect I probably shouldn't have, they jumped the shark in like, season 2. The most recent ones were really just uninteresting and tedious.. and then involved time travel. And then they ramped up the drama. Ugh.

Cowboy Bebop: We're re-watching the original in anticipation of the live-action series being released. It's fantstic of course, but I always forget just how much (excellent) drama there is amongst the action and antics.
