Goddammit.  For a service that relies more and more on original content, they sure have a fucking strange approach towards evaluating that content.  They are going to end up cannibalizing themselves.

Finished the last episodes of Santa Clarita now, and fucking fuck.  I hope they lose a billion subs over this.  At some point they have to stop this crap, it isn't network television.

Santa Clarita Diet season 3 is out, and so I went back to the beginning and started with S1 again.  I think this is one of the funniest shows around.

ends with a cliffhanger and has been canceled

Nooooooooooooooooooo.  You are fucking with me.

why would i do that

Because I would have preferred that over having SCD cancelled?

This Dark Crystal series is actually quite entertaining thus far.

Was thinking about starting in on that, but I never saw the original stuff (probably because the family matriarchs were concerned about it being a conduit straight to Satan).  Is the original required viewing and/or does it remotely hold up?

Prequel, so no not required (in fact, you could argue that it's better not to have...)

Cool, sold.  I am about to wrap up Handmaid’s Tale season 3 (which everyone should watch), so I will probably start this next.

So this Dark Crystal stuff is surprisingly well done.  It took me a bit to get over the fact that am watching fucking muppets, but the quality here is indeed high.  Visually excellent,  Great voice work.  Great puppetry (muppetry?).  Both whimsical and dark.  Skeksis would have scared the shit out of the 10 year old version of me.  It all feels rather epic.  Also, I fucking love Hup already, and Podlings in general.

Oh, and under the assumption that this is mostly puppets and actual built set pieces, it puts a lie to the idea the CGI is better.  Whatever this is is better.

Watch all the episodes.  Then when it automatically starts to play the making of, WATCH THAT TOO.

The effort put into this show is superhuman and it shows.

Will do.  Even halfway through the first episode, I was wondering to myself how the fuck they managed 10 episodes.  Just the sets alone....

3 down, 7 to go.

Damn.  Finished up the Dark Crystal, and also the ‘making of’ that followed it.  Just great.  If there is still a little kid inside you, you should watch this.  I have no idea how this prequel series flows into the movie (I haven’t seen it, but I for sure will no)....but I sure hope they make more of this.  Wonder if the economics are worth it, it looks like it was a huge undertaking.

NBC announced a streaming service called Peacock (lol) headlined with a new Battlestar Galactica reboot by Sam Esmail (Mr Robot).

Huh.  Okay.  I'd be down for another BG.

Currently watching "The End of the F**king World".  Weird British series.  I like it, but I don't know why.  2 short seasons, and the episodes are barely over 20 minutes.

It is not really about the end of the world, despite the title.

Just finished up Chernobyl, which maybe has a thread, I dunno.  Really well done, and really well acted by both whathisface and the other guy.  For whatever reason, I never received a proper education about what actually went on with that whole mess, so what a goddamn eye-opener that was.  I mean, it was a disaster obviously, but was it really that close to being a global catastrophe like they depicted?  Jesus F Christ.

The whole eastern bloc was full of similar reactors when communism fell. Could probably do a whole series about near-misses and post-communism troubleshooting that went on.
