    Very good description thanks
    I will add it to my list. (still wanting to watch schitts Creek, The Expanse, and I think you should leave, so who knows when I will get around to it)

    I have laughed hard at Schitt's Creek. Eager to start The Expanse...

    Didn't realize season 2 of You had dropped. Guess what I'm doing this weekend. I liked the second book less than the first.

    I am. I have two episodes left. It's not bad, but it's not great either.

    I've googled recaps after every episode too because the show does a piss poor job explaining things, especially in the beginning and I'm familiar with the Witcher.

    This is a good summary. You are correct about Cavill's portrayal of Geralt, he is playing him very true to the character from the source material. He's not the most emotive person in the world lol.

    I found the first season pretty uneven, with some pacing issues that got better as the series progressed. It gives me a lot of hope that it will improve a lot in season two.

    Kind of spoiler: I wouldn't anticipate this series having the cavalier attitude towards the main characters that game of thrones had with regard to killing them off.

    Anything is possible of course and the creators of this show may decide to stray from the source material, but I'd be fairly surprised.

    I appreciate this, coming from a fan of the series (I assume, from your comments :)). I admit, I really latch onto protagonist/'good guy' characters, and am pretty pollyanna-ish about series' that indiscriminately mow them down.

    Coral's death bothered me, in particular. I was fearful I'd end up seeing more promising good guys' limbless bodies impaled on trees after 15 minutes of action!

    Good advice.
    I shall do the same. I actually decided to start it today since I just got caught up on Shameless. I will try schitts Creek after I finish this.

    On a lighter note, the wife and I have been thoroughly enjoying 'Catastrophe', for anyone with Prime. I'm talking, laughing so hard my ribs hurt. It's blunt, and the main characters communicate-- in my opinion-- the way all married people should. Highly recommend.

    One of the most underrated comedies out there. So funny.

    Seriously? I figured it out 2, maybe 3 episodes ahead of time. Mostly just because of the obvious narrative qualities, more than anything the show specifically showed.

    The Mandalorian was fun. I would say that there was no character development, except that there was really no character in the first place - just kind of static catch phrases and/or inscrutable motivations.

    But I liked it, it was pretty. And Baby Yoda.

    This is a good description. I found my attention wandering quite a bit during the mandalorian. It was good enough I kept watching but I didn't find it that great. I don't get the rabid following it seems to have generated and the baby Yoda was cute and all but also kind of nothing, other than that "hey it's got the force" moment, which was pretty poorly animated imo. I'll watch the next season but more out of curiosity than a drive to know the story, which is basically nonexistent at this point.

    I watched the first three episodes of The Witcher. In episode one there were 2 swordfight scenes that were choreographed better than most any fight scenes you will ever find.

    Other than that, I'm not sure if I like it or not.
