TV Shows – Only Enthousiastic

Maniac (Netflix) –  So much to love in this one. My favourite Netflix show yet? Maybe. Probably. Enthousiastic!

TV Shows – From Enthousiastic to Avoid (cont’d)

Sharp Objects (HBO)

Wow! I completely forgot about this one. In spite of a sour taste it left once i learned that there is some explanation of what happened after the credits rolled on the final episode in my mind this was an Enthousiastic. But then why did i forget about it? – Enthousiastic (?)

TV shows – From Enthousiastic to Avoid

The past few months have been a mixed affair.

Barry (HBO) 

What a superb black comedy this is. Full of great characters and crazy situations. – Enthousiastic

Forever (Amazon)

This came out of nowhere for me after reading a review in the FT. Great characters and acting. I especially enjoyed the actor who played Oscar, Fred Armisen. I don’t remember seeing him in anything before. – Enthousiastic

Succession (HBO) 

This is a pretty inconsistent series. But it’s more suggest than indifferent because of its particular kind of humour which won’t be to everyone’s liking. – Suggest

Deadwind (Netflix) 

Not bad, but it’s just another solid crime thriller.  The Scandinavians have mastered the genre. – Indifferent

Jack Ryan (Amazon) 

I really wanted to like this one. I was a Tom Clancy fan in my teenage years and Jack Ryan was always a favourite character of mine. Also, this series features Bunk!!! But everything felt shallow. The plot, characters, script, moral decisions. Maybe i am also misremembering the quality of the novels. – Avoid

Movie of the week – How to Train Your Dragon 2

I think it tried too hard to impress. Still recommended though!

Movie of the week – Tropa de Elite 2

While not as good as the (superb) first movie this is still an enjoyable sequel. An action movie about political and police corruption in Brazil.
