TV Show Review: The Terror

This is a pretty good TV show. The premise makes it that way.

As a matter of fact, I believe that this would have been a fascinating story even without using the main killing machine, of which I am sure someone was too proud of in order to realize that they manage to create a fascinating story which is pretty much all about people starving to death, freezing to death, and going insane because of the starvation and the cold.

My thought’s on Krypton: A different kind of Superman TV Show

First of all, being developed by Syfy, Krypton has the feel ( and special effects) of 2000s SF TV shows. More or less. Secondly, why are aliens wearing jeans?

Krypton is about Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather. Someone thought it a good idea. Marketing even promotes this guy as legendary, even though I do not think he’s that legendary at all. Continue reading

TV Show Review: Black Mirror

Black Mirror is difficult to review, mostly because it’s an anthology television series. New characters, new plotlines, and basically everything that connects all the episodes together is the fact that they all share a science fiction element.

Oh, and they all seem to touch on the same aspect: how technology can be detrimental to our mental health. That new technologies also have side-effects. Continue reading

TV Show Review: Altered Carbon

Based on the novel of the same title by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is one of the many offerings from Netflix. It’s also cyberpunk at its finest. It’s got a lot of violence, a lot of nudity, sex, use of drugs, and profanity.

The premise of the series is simple: in this dystopian future, a person’s memories are stored in a disk-shaped device called stack, which is implanted in the vertebrae at the back of the neck. Bodies are called “sleeves” and are used as vessels that can accept any stack. There’s an entire world built around the idea of being immortal, or at least being given the chance. Continue reading

The most expensive tv-shows of all time

Netflix and chill, right? Or maybe it’s either HBO Now or HBO Go or maybe AMC?

As more and more people are watching TV shows on streaming services or cable TV, as the phenomenon of Game of Thrones urges show runners to ask for bigger budgets than ever before, this begs a question: how expensive are TV Shows nowadays?

Is $15 million dollars per episode for the eight season of GoT a lot?

Let’s find out. Here are the top most expensive TV shows of all time. Continue reading

Stranger Things: Season 2 Review

Two word review: My God!

What a TV show. Truly. One I can binge watch without giving a damn about all the adult stuff I am supposed to be doing. It’s got it all: a bit of supernatural, a bit of science fiction, a bit of horror, a bit of romance, a bit of humor. It’s got suspense and it’s got great acting. The cinematography is quite amazing. The soundtrack, top notch. It’s got it all. And it’s probably the best TV show since Game of Thrones. Continue reading

TV Show Review: Stranger Things

Four days until the second season of this show will air I am writing my thoughts. Briefly. No spoilers included.

Stranger Things is a great goddamn TV show. It starts in a rather cliched manner, with some evil entity scaring the crap out of the audience, and then some evil government organisation, but after the first three episodes it becomes something else. It has a sort of hallucinogenic effect on you – there are a bunch of characters all acting crazy, and you’ve got some kids who are the only ones who are reasonable enough to do the right thing.
