LAST YEAR OF TV Review
This is Us - I loved this season as it really developed the character arcs and made me feel like these people were real. My favorite episode was the one where the family came together for Kevin's therapy session. Watching the family discuss those unspoken issues that they suppressed for years, and seeing it from different perspectives, was so sensationally done. I love what they did with Kevin this year. Also, the flash forwards were a great new wrinkle.
Power - They really turned it up last season when they killed Raina, and that little punk Tariq stood right there and watched it happen. Is there anybody who watches this show who doesn't want Tariq dead? He's that dumb, spoiled kid who wants to be tough and you want beat his ass. I'm getting pissed thinking about it!! Dre must die!!
Narcos - I absolutely love period dramas and Narcos has been one if my favorite shows the last few years. I wasn't sure what they would do after they ran through the entire Pablo Escobar story in just two seasons, which I thought was far too fast. But they did an excellent job with the story of the Cali Cartel and it's epic rise and dramatic fall. Sensational really. Can't wait for the Mexican Cartel story next season.
Insecure - Lol, she took a shot to the face!! Lol. I love this show so much and it really explores many situations that happen in everyday life. Stuff you never really see covered from the black perspective, with no punches held. That's what makes it special. And the big fella let us all down. Smh.
Halt and Catch Fire - It was so sad to see the end of this show that was so great but again blown through far too fast. These type of period dramas should be played out over at least 6 seasons but these writers have no patience. Man the way Gordon died was heartbreaking.
Defenders - Hot coffee anybody? I thought they did a really good job with the Defenders and collaborating all four of the heros. I think Danny Rand gets a bad rap and while Iron Fist wasn't the best Marvel show on Netflix, I thought his story was essential to the arc of the Defenders series. I enjoyed it.
Game of Thrones - Man o Man this was the greatest season ever for the show. The white walkers got a damn dragon now! When the night king took his spear and perfectly darted it at the dragon, it was a true Wtf moment!! The standoff on the ice was epic. The alliance between Jon Snow and Daenerys is exactly what we needed!! And Grey worm got to at least dry hump, so that's a win!
