  • I won't rehash all that's wrong with *The Walking Dead* but season seven continued all the bad trends. It even managed to reach new lows with Jadis and the trash people. Their implausible behaviour was only matched by the stupidity of Rick trusting them. You can put that all to one side though. The most egregious thing about the whole season was the finale. It was a rehash of the Season 3 ending where nothing was resolved so that the Governor could limp on for another year. The staging of the battle was awful.

  • There was lots to like about *Stranger Things*. But it felt like an extended movie rather than a TV show. All the character beats were big and broad. The plot flew along predictably toward a happy ending. And none of that is bad. But I don't see a point in producing a season two. The story has been told. I could see this as an anthology series but would have little interest in revisiting Hawkins itself. *Atlanta *reminded me quite a bit of *Girls*.

    This was a decent set-up episode made even better by that excellent Michael/Walt scene which you mentioned in detail above. The Others delivered in this episode and continued to be mysterious. Once...

  • Aaronic on ?
    This episode was great on re-watch but there were a couple problems that I noticed for the series as a whole. Eko choosing to press the button led nowhere. The only thing it accomplished was give L...
