I like NINA, but that's a bit off. Why is everything from Luigi Donatello just slightly underwhelming? I don't remember the last time I liked anything from him.
Well, I haven't posted anything in ages, so here:
I listen to almost everything you post, so yea, I've heard her latest stuff. Downloaded a few.
But for my favorite song last year, I have to be a loser and say it was Poppy's Fill the Crown. It's weird and has such an interesting story.
There are more streaming services than actual original shows at the moment, but I think I managed to sort through the humbug and spot the top ones.
5. The Mandalorian
It's already the most expensive show in the actual universe, so you would expect some appeal. Disney is cashing in on the cute puppet trend, plus the obvious Star Wars nostalgia that they pried from Lucas' doughy fingers, and it works somehow. "Is is just a spaghetti western in space?" Yes, including the painful ring of obvious outlaw betrayals and escaping railroad executions every other scene. But it's still good. The final episode of the season hasn't come out at this point, but even without it, it's still one of the better shows of the year.
"Tick-tock" is the sound an HBO executive's phone makes when they press "m" for "money." Watchmen is a sequel to the Watchmen comics, and a ghost sequel to the mundane Watchmen movie that awkwardly forgot about the giant squid. It's about white supremacists using the concepts of superheroes as props in their war against the government and black culture. Isn't that what you expected after a giant squid is dropped on New York City and a super-human blue man goes to Mars so people stop getting cancer? Oh. Well, it's good regardless.
Enjoying my random Google images yet? Well, you'll also enjoy season 2 of Happy, which is just more mindless action featuring aliens, Satan, and white stuff. It's Si-Fis only good show, so just let them have it.
2. Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
As the prequel to the creepy movie from the 80's, Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a show about puppets who are pretending to be not puppets with the help of some Jim Henson trickery and Netflix budget CGI. It's definitely one of the best looking shows ever made, with every character and prop being 100% man made and tailored perfectly to this dark fantasy world. There are a few story issues, but the sheer amount of work put into the show's visuals masks them well.
Really? A show about cleaning up nuclear gunk is better than the Witcher? Chernobyl is a dramatic representation of the most famous core meltdown in history, and the horrors that followed. No, you won't be vibrating in terror over a radioactive super-bear, or two-headed zombie rats. The real horror of the show is how low the Russian government would go to clean up their biggest mistake, and that it's also all 100% true. No, it's not a documentary. It's pure, raw horror derived from one of the darkest moments in human history.
Not sure what Tredstone or 9-1-1 is. You seem to have a lot of reality TV and crime drama stuff in your top lists and a lot of that stuff breezes past me these days. I still watch Gordon Ramsey stuff, but I wouldn't dare put cooking shows in direct competition with heavy story content.
I would have liked to of seen Stranger Things season 3 get on my list this year, but it was really awful. It was just, yet another, rehash of the last two seasons, with the addition of Boris & Natasha Russian goons that made my head hurt. The charm of the first season is almost entirely lost at this point. The show isn't limited to children fighting black ooze. Season 4 better expand or perish at this point.
Why did I say that thing in 2017? Why was I such a moron? Am I a moron now and I don't realize it? Oh god...
Speaking of morons, there's nothing else that can be said about Trump. If you're not convinced that this guy is a literal determent to this Earth yet, then what is actually wrong with you.
I personally don't trust anything that involves some guy in hair plugs just talking about news. A lot of American Conservative outlets do that - just someone talking about what's going on and not really showing anything. But the other side has its issues as well. Fact checking is good and all, but are those fact checkers reliable sources themselves? What are they referencing? Are really ALL of their references accurate? You can't really trust anything, but as long as you're listening to all sides in a situation and being open minded, you will have better control over false narratives.
