Good Film & TV

I don’t watch much film or TV as i just find most of it utterly tedious and it really does fuck your brain up having too many characters and story lines running through a brain that never evolved to cope with them.

Not too mention all that back lit high blue light that most people fuck their sleep and dreams up with.

So, i simply only ever bother with a few TV programs and the odd film now and again.   And in minimising what i watch on screen i like to find only high quality stuff to watch.

And below are some of my favourites…

The Orville — Season 2

This show just gets better.   Everyone’s settled into their characters really well, the main galactic story line is ramping up, while the short episode stories are usually quite humorous while managing to keep a serious side to them — like holodeck porn addiction.

This parody is just as good as TNG, DS9 and Voyager as it brings something to the genre that those 3 couldn’t because they always took themselves so seriously.   Being a parody, The Orville can go places that a serious program cannot go with the issues it deals with, and that’s good.   It’s what i was hoping for in the post Voyager universe — a bit more grown up story lines, like yeah, people are going to be just as fucked up in 400 years as they are today, they’ll just have different toys to get fucked up with.   Instead all we got from the Star Trek label was immature garbage in Enterprise and Discovery which, quite frankly, have been a step backwards and a dumbing down of the franchise.   Fingers crossed ‘Picard’ will, once again, come to the rescue.

Season 3 will be coming late 2020 apparently.

The Orville — Season 1

Shows how much i keep up with current TV shows, i only just came across this.   So it got a good binge watching.

For those who really enjoyed Star Trek TNG and Voyager but were always a little annoyed that no one ever went to the toilet, swore, gossiped, got hangovers, smoked spliffs, etc., then this is for you.

It does have its serious sides like TNG used to have, but mixed amongst it all is just normal people with the normal work complaints, bizarre quirks, habits and things.   Even the replicators do cannabis edibles.

So i’ll definitely be watching season 2 when i get some time spare to binge it.   Season 3 is also on its way at some point.

Perpetual Grace Ltd

One absolutely whacky, strange, weird, but brilliant piece of television.

They didn’t skimp on the acting quality: great casting, great actors and great acting all round.   Everyone suits their character and plays them extremely well.

The cinematography is excellent.

The script is awesome, fun, twisted, bizarre, yet all making complete sense at the same time.

All in all, it’s just perfect.   Get watching now.   Season 1 just finished so you can binge watch the whole ten hours on your next rest day.

Get it…
Get the rhythm…
Get the rhythm…
There ya go…
There ya fucking go…

Let’s us pray for a second season.
