Falcon and the Winter Soldier 2021
Season 1

This was really disappointing.

The Boys 2019
Superstore
Season 1-5

Somehow I hadn't even heard of this until recently but it is hilarious.

James May: Our Man In Japan 2020
James May: Oh Cook! 2020
Season 1
Timeless

I enjoyed this enough to watch the two seasons but it really could have done with better writers. There was so little history actually changing that they missed some opportunities to make it feel like there was some actual danger of things going wrong. The last 4-5 episodes were really good.

The Purge 2018
Season 1-2
The Queen's Gambit 2020

Gave up after 3 episodes. The set design is great though.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 2013
Season 1-6
The Grand Tour 2016
A Massive Hunt
Better Call Saul
Season 4-5
Gavin & Stacey 2007
Lost 2004
Season 1-6

I really enjoyed watching this 10 years on from the finale. My only complaint is the last season felt a little bit rushed.

The Crown 2016
Season 4
Schitt's Creek 2015
Season 1-6
Ted Lasso 2020

Best show of the year by far.

Des 2020

Not enough David Tennant. Also not enough plot.

Love is Blind 2020

This is the pinnacle of garbage reality TV and I couldn't stop watching.

The Flood

Nature is nasty.

For All Mankind 2019
Season 1
Scrubs 2001
Season 1-9

We watched season 9 this time; it's not as bad as I'd remembered. If this had been done completely separately as a show, I think it might have been received better. Eliza Coupe is hilarious.

American Crime Story 2016
The People v. O. J. Simpson
High Score 2020

They found some pretty interesting people for this to interview, not all the usual suspects (although some are there of course like John Romero).

My Name Is Earl 2005
Season 1-4

Such a shame this got cancelled when it did, it was a great show.

Arrowverse
Season 2019-2020
  • Legends got even more weird
  • Arrow ended fairly gracefully except the backdoor pilot episode
  • Flash is always good
  • Supergirl is fine
Prison Break
Season 1-2

No point in going past season 2.

The Simpsons 1989
Season 19
Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich 2020
After Life 2019

The Simpsons 1989
Season 16

I think this is where it started going downhill.

The Simpsons 1989
Season 30

Same as season 29, a mixed bag and lots of callbacks.

A Parks and Recreation Special 2009

Perfect.

The Imagineering Story 2019
Season 1

That fucking Spider-Man robot, wow.

The Simpsons 1989
Season 29

A few good episodes but nothing amazing. A lot of "remember when we were good" callbacks.

The Stranger 2020

Hannah John-Kamen needs to be in everything.

The Morning Show 2019

Very good

The World According to Jeff Goldblum 2019

I think this could do with the episodes being maybe 15 minutes longer as they're quite shallow right now but it's saved by how weird and fascinated by everything that Jeff Goldblum is.

Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness 2020

This was wild. I couldn’t stop watching.

Gotham 2014
Season 4-5

I'm amazed at the restraint the writers had to not put Batman in this until the final episode (which was weird but whatever).

Friends
Season 1-10
The Good Place 2016
Season 4
Blackadder Goes Forth 1983
Season 4

This is such a good series.

Living with Yourself 2019

Paul Rudd is a treasure (and possibly immortal).

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 2013
Season 6
Gavin & Stacey 2007

Tidy.

Parks and Recreation
Season 1-7
