13 Reasons Why
Season 2

Even more so than season 1, you should really consider if you're in the right frame of mind to watch a show like this. The last episode destroyed me.

The Confession Tapes

The hoops the police will jump through just to get a conviction is staggering.

Evil Genius

Fascinating.

The Defiant Ones
The Returned
Season 1

I hate every character. I hate the story. I hate it so much.

Parks and Recreation
Season 1-7

"Yes, we're gonna get a dish rack, and shower curtains, and a cutting board, but if you think for one second that I'm not also gonna get that marshmallow shooter so I can shoot you in the face with marshmallows when you're asleep, then you're the dumbest woman I know."

Andy Dwyer, Season 3, Episode 11

"Jogging is the worst. I know it keeps you healthy, but god, at what cost?"

Anne Perkins, Season 4, Episode 7

Mindhunter
Season 1

Very good except the last two episodes where there seemed to be no real consequence to anything that happened.

The Office (US)
Season 1

This is much more enjoyable than the UK version.

The Office (US)
Season 1, Episode 1

This was a strange experience because the script is almost identical to the UK version but I can see how the characters are completely different already.

Ricky Gervais: Humanity 2018
Jessica Jones 2018
Season 2

Review contains spoilers. Reveal your secrets.

Russell Howard: Live 2008
Jessica Jones
Season 1

Jessica Jones and the rest of the cast are some of the most interesting and deep of the MCU. I had to rewatch this before Thursday in preparation for season 2.

Russell Howard: Recalibrate 2017
The Big Bang Theory
Season 1-10

For all it's problems, I still really enjoy this.

The Office (UK)
Season 1-2

This is as awkward to watch as ever but I still enjoy it. Two seasons is enough though.

The Good Place
Season S2E08-12
The Good Place
Season 1, 2 up to E07

Kristen Bell is a treasure.

Chuck
Season 1-5

Even with the excessive Subway product placement, I still love this show.

Beyond Stranger Things

Meh.

My Name is Earl
Season 1-4

This really deserves a few more episodes, or a season, to complete the story.

Stranger Things 2
Stephen Merchant: Hello Ladies… Live!
Friends
Season 1-10

My two month Twitter thread:

Rachel should have dumped Ross's jealous ass as soon as the Mark thing started. Urgh.

This tweet brought to you by 1997.

That thread was right, Ross is a complete tool.

Ross is making me so angry. I wanna punch his stupid face.

"Maybe we should take a break"

OH SHITS ABOUT TO KICK OFF

Hmm. I don't think they were on a break.

Wait, no. Rachel says they were broken up.

Oh wow Ross got a laserdisc player.

"I'll get my own dollhouse with blackjack and hookers"

Phoebe did it first.

Found my HD rips. No more 4:3 Friends for me.

SUCH QUALITY

Only now, because it's in HD, have I realised Kathy isn't played by Amanda Peet. My whole life is a lie.

I can't believe he said Rachel's name instead of Emily.

The way they try and get the sofa up the stairs is ridiculous.

noodle soup

So much fragile masculinity in "The One with Ross' Teeth"

Why didn't Ross just say "oh I fucked up my teeth lol". That would have fixed everything

I would have eaten Rachel's beef trifle.

NOT a euphemism

Richard is terrible. He shouldn’t have told Monica he still loved her.

“It’s just good sense to backup your backup”

Phoebe was ahead of her time.

Joey and Rachel should have ended up together.

Nope. Not finished yet.

👏 Paul Rudd 👏

Paul Rudd has all the best lines in season 10.

Oh no not Mark again.

Ross is awful but I still don’t think I’m emotionally ready for the last episode.

Aaaand finished. Thanks for playing.

American Vandal

A perfect TV show.

Defenders

Not great. Iron Fist needs to be killed off as soon as possible.

Between

Terrible acting in the first season. Interesting premise but completely ignores some key points of the plot (there was a tiger that no one spoke about‽).

13th

Everyone should watch this.

Louis Theroux: America’s Most Hated Family in Crisis
Louis Theroux: The Most Hated Family in America
Louis Theroux: Behind Bars
Louis Theroux: A Place for Paedophiles
Louis Theroux: Miami Megajail
Gotham
Season 3
The Keepers

Interesting, but ultimately leads nowhere.

Big Bang Theory
Season 10
House of Cards
Season 5
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Season 4
Agents of SHIELD
Season 4

Slow start but gets really good after the first few episodes.

So F**king Rock Live

Tim Minchin is a genius.

Orange is the New Black
Season 5
Prison Break
Season 5

Pretty good but it felt like a supercut of season one and two.

Blindspot
Season 1-2
Arrowverse
Season 2016-2017
  • Flash was on (flash)point as always
  • Mid-season Arrow was unbearable, but overall a decent season
  • Legends of Tomorrow was completely bonkers but interesting the whole season
  • Supergirl still doesn't feel like it fits in the Arrowverse
Sense8

A mostly boring season scattered with interesting fight scenes and a dissapointing finale.

The OA

A self indulgent 8 hour crapfest. I don't recommend anyone watch this.

13 Reasons Why
Season 1

Holy shit. This broke me.

Legends of Tomorrow

Doesn't get interesting until the last four episodes, although I did enjoy the crossovers.

Iron Fist

Not completely terrible, but definitely the worst of the Netflix-Marvel shows.

Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special

Not the worst way to spend an hour.
