Try DISCONNECTING the players from the internet...?
Been watching some TV lately:
Glow - This show is wonderful. The first season was really good, but the second season was even better. The characters (in general) are more likable and it feels a little more streamlined. This might be my favorite currently ongoing show...?
Bates Motel - I really enjoyed this. It seems like a terrible idea...the prequel to Psycho (and then a loose Psycho remake in season 5), but the acting is consistently good and other than a weird rough patch in the second season that shifts the focus off Norman and his mother too much and focuses on a drug war, the show zeroes in on Norman's psyche and relationship with his mother and really hits that perfect balance of likable (since they ARE the protagonists we have to follow for 50 episodes) and...icky. Season 1 is really good. S2 is a little dull. S3 is good. S4 is AMAZING and S5 is very good. Overall, really enjoyed this.
Hannibal - Coming off Bates Motel, and having heard a lot of good things about this show, I was super excited...and then it was a let down. At first, I was mostly okay with that..."It just wasn't what I thought it would be, I can't hold that against it." and "I just need to re-adjust my expectations." Also, I'd been told that Season 2 is one of the best seasons of television ever or something...
...ultimately I wound up hating the show. It's weird when something has so many elements that you should like but the way it comes together is extremely dissatisfying, but that was Hannibal for me. The dialogue, the characters, the killer-of-the-week storytelling...it didn't do it for me. Mads Mikkelson is a great Hannibal, but he's stuck in something I really didn't like.
I also watched SOLO: An Unnecessary Story.
And that's my review of it.
I watched it.
Then it was over.
That's the full extent of discussion, excitement and seething hatred it deserves. Had it not had the Star Wars name on it, even fewer people would have seen it and nobody would ever talk about it. Utterly forgettable.
