    I have seen Claes, I like your call on this.

    I also like Hauser better than Taron in Black Bird.

    “Ray Donovan: The Movie” (2022): This was made for the longtime, devoted fanbase of the series after Showtime’s abrupt cancellation. I would have preferred a full season to truly wrap things up, and I could tell where plotlines would have developed over multiple episodes. It wouldn’t have taken a full season though, maybe at most six episodes. As far as the movie goes, I’d say it’s as compelling and dynamic as any of the late-series-run episodes. Gone are the artsy dream sequences and overreliance on action sequences, but more straight-forward storytelling and extensive use of flashbacks. The production values looked very expensive, so at least no money seemed to be spared. Liev Schreiber really landed the role of a lifetime as Ray Donovan, and I doubt anything will match this character for a long time. The overarching theme here is that the sins of the father are passed down to the son, and then the son to the daughter. I didn’t know exactly where the narrative was going, but wow did it pack an emotional wallop at the end! The core ensemble had nice moments to shine throughout, but I did want more for Eddie Marsan, who was a bit sidelined. It was a swan song for Jon Voight, who remained the powder keg of the series from beginning to end as Mickey. It’s insane to me how he can be this incredible an actor still and in real-life be such a MAGA nut. Such is life. Let’s also give immediate praise to Bill Heck as young Mickey, who was probably the best casting choice imaginable as a younger Voight surrogate. Alan Alda returned as Ray’s therapist, which was wonderful to witness in his medical condition. This would have made an excellent Emmy winner in Made for Television Film, but it would mean absolutely nothing to uninitiated voters as a standalone. That’s why the “Deadwood” movie sadly lost too, but I get it. This year’s mockery of a winner instead of “The Survivor” should lead to disbanding the category outright for voters not taking it seriously anymore, or fold it into the Limited Series category after increasing the nods count. Glad all involved had the opportunity to end the series on their own terms and for the fans. I’ll miss it quite a bit.

    Halfway through the finale of Bad Sisters and I think this might be the best TV plot twist since The Good Place. Completely unexpected yet somehow absolutely inevitable. I struggled with this show when it premiered and I thought it was because I didn’t like the show, but now I’m realizing that was mainly because I found JP’s abuse incredibly difficult to watch. I feel like people don’t really talk about that aspect of the show since it’s often pretty comedic, but watching the sisters (and really everyone in the show) suffer was incredibly harrowing for me. Really amazing season of television.

    Is difficult to watch because is really incredible how Claes Bang is. It really takes talent to make such a character like JP. It´s a shame that he didn´t appear in the CC nominations, and probably will not appear in the Globes :(.

    For me the standout was definitely Anne-Marie Duff, I think there’s a lot of layers to her performance. Bang and the other four sisters were all phenomenal, I can’t really pick a favourite out of them, they all played off each other very well.

    I’m currently watching The English (fantastic, Blunt in the third episode), Derry Girls (hilarious) and Chainsaw Man (also hilarous)

    Does anyone has any recomendation about sci fi/cyberpunk/post apocalyptic shows ? Like Severance, which fits that mold.

    I binged Wednesday during the past few days. While I enjoyed the first half of the season, the back half was tedious and sloppy. It was made worse by the astonishingly high number of characters who were harmed as a result of Wednesday’s investigation and accusations. Ortega was great in the role, though. Hopefully the show will be more cohesive when it eventually returns for a second season.

    Based on the good counsel of these pages, I binged season 1 of Six Feet Under this week. It’s mixed – very sloppy in parts, but maybe that’s me forgetting how much TV has changed in 20 years. David’s story aside (by far the best arc and truly impressive), it in no way stands up to contemporaneous counterparts like The West Wing. On the other hand, it’s a certainly a trip down memory lane. Still, some interesting themes and perspectives, even if I want to smack Ruth so hard – I don’t know if it’s the actress, the character or the writing, but I find her repulsive.

    Anyway we trundle on in order to get to the fabled final episode.

    Here for the comedies

    I have the exact same feeling. The first 4 episodes were great, but the last 4 were bad. Like, I don’t understand the hype at all. I thought it was like Riverdale season 1 or Sabrina season 1. Nothing new. The fact that this is having as many views as Stranger Things is absolutely non sense. Ortega is really good tho.

    I’m watching some randoms earlier Game of Thrones episodes and I’m like WTF this show was like no other on it’s prime, everything worked so well and nothing ever missed a single beat. I completely forgot the show was supposed to be THAT good.

    Please! These gays, they're trying to murder me!

    I think the finale of Six Feet Under has changed my life or rather the way I have now started to live and experience it. What a beautiful and cathartic piece of television.

    Whenever a television show ends people always talk about it being the end of an era but I don’t think I’ve ever felt like that more than with this show. Which is strange seeing as I only started it last Summer. I feel like a chapter of my own life, albeit not a very nice chapter, has concluded and I’ve entered a new phase even though I’m stealing with the same situations I was two weeks ago before finishing this show. Normally such a feeling would terrify me but I’m honestly excited to see where life takes me from here even if I’m still in the same place living the same life I am now in 12 months to 12 years time because it’s the experience of life itself that counts even if it doesn’t always go the way you want it to.

    I’ll always remember the 6 months I spent with the Fishers.

    Six Feet Under remains the show with the best series finale ever, and i don’t think anyone will ever top it tbh.
    It’s been ages since I binged it, will for sure revisit in the next years.
