TV: What are you currently watching?

The heart of 2k. Back again, since 1999... give or take a few restarts.

For example, it basically had nothing to do with Star Trek.
I loved every minute of it. It felt way more Trek than all of Voyager and most of Enterprise (and I liked Enterprise) They were never going to make a series with the aesthetic of the sixties show and changing up the look and style has been consistent with every new Trek from the original through Next Gen.
I didn't think it felt like Trek at all. The whole vibe... the whole aesthetic of it was very un-trek like. It was slow, ponderous, badly written, and there was no chemistry of any kind among the cast. The "Klingons" had to read dialog through a mouth full of marbles in a weird version of Klingon that I'm almost sure isn't even right, and the show didn't even portray them properly. And don't get me started on the lead actress and her... whatever it was she was doing. I don't think I've ever seen a worse-written character in television.

Abysmal.

Finally finished GOT season 6!
Glad there were at least two or three things that weren't totally spoiled for me.

On to season 7!

Godspeed!

Meanwhile, I'm getting caught up on Mr. Robot s2 (and s3, as it's spoiled for me at work), The Americans s4(?). Looking forward to my cheeseball show, The Shannara Chronicles s2, and doing a complete rewatch of Friday Night Lights with Orladh. I'm sure there's something in there I'm missing, but there ain't enough time to watch anything these days.

Say what you will about what came after but ENTERPRISE has a really strong pilot. I've also always had a soft spot for The Cage.
