The scenery looks like something I'll enjoy watching. The rest looks pretty good, too.

Jessica Biel is my favorite recurring character and second favorite recurring gag on Bojack Horseman.

There was a little bit of a discussion about moody EU crime dramas a while ago, I think on the "size of the screen" thread. I gave Hinterland another try this weekend, and this time it clicked. I like it. Although I did put the subtitles on becasue some of the Welsh accents are anodd iawn i'w ddeall.

I liked Hinterland at first, although Richard Harrington's Droopy Dog face wore on me after a while and I lost interest by the last season. It is also a bit confusing that every third person is named Rhys. That said, the accents are great to listen to (but yes, subtitles, please.)

Disenchantment Season 1 was fun. Confirmed to be in the Futurama universe.

I'm actually not just ragging. The thesis of the article I linked to is that a quarter-second joke in one episode doesn't confirm anything about anything. I know it's hard to tell where the jokes are in Disenchantment because none of it is funny, but the more plausible reading is that this was just a throwaway gag.

I just assume everything with nerd appeal is fan service and Easter eggs all the way down. Safer than assuming writing matters.

The comic is good and I like the tone of the trailer.

I got off the train at "Riverdale". Maybe I'll catch it next time around. I'll wait for the reviews.

“The Haunting of Hill House” is really good, despite a few flaws. The retelling centers around a family that planned to flip Hill House, but fled after a particularly bad night in which the mother (played by Carla Gugino, *rowr*) died, and the now-adult children dealing with and confronting the trauma of that night. Told in the now-common ‘current & flashback’ parallel storylines. I’m a little “meh” on the zombie makeup used to portray ghosts, and the last two episodes probably could’ve been combined and edited to one. The last 30 minutes of the last episode was not needed, and ending sooner would have been better. Not a lot of jump-scares, which is a plus.
