Thursday Movie Picks - TV Edition: Freshman Series

The first TV edition from Wandering Through the Shelves is putting a spotlight on those series that got their start last year. I had to save another freshman show I really love for a later pick, but here are three shows I started watching in 2019.

1) The Mandalorian

This show was so great, but so short. Obviously you know of the cultural impact of Baby Yoda, the one thing in this world that must be protected at all cost, but beyond him the show is really excellent and I can't wait for season two later this year.

2) His Dark Materials

I liked, but didn't love this. I feel like I would enjoy it more had I read the novels but it's still a solid watch and I'll be here for season two.

3) Watchmen

Watchmen isn't coming back for a second season but the first series ended on a wonderful note that wrapped it up well. I'm sad we won't see them back, because they could've expanded, but at least they had a wonderful season. Give Regina King all the Emmys for this.

  1. I kinda like that The Mandalorian was a shorter season. I think it leads to better episodes and less "filler." Can't wait for Season 2!

    1. That's true, but it caught me off guard as I was expecting hour long episodes.

  2. I haven't seen any of these, though I'd heard of the second two, but then I didn't start any new shows last year so I'm sitting this week out.

    1. That's too bad. I think Watchman is a great one to start with since it's only the one season. Even if you don't care for comic book adaptations.

  3. I keep hearing wildly different opinions on His Dark Materials! The Baby Yoda show is going to be very popular today <3

    1. I think His Dark Materials is fine. Not bad by any means, but not as exciting as other things I've watched this year.

  7. They canceled Watchmen? What the fuck?

    1. They didn't technically "cancel" it, apparently it was just a limited series and the showrunner never confirmed wanting a second season.

  8. All of these sound like interesting shows! I really want to watch Watchmen!

  9. I loved the Mandalorian and Watchmen is on my list for sure. And now I'll add the other to my list as well!

  10. I haven’t seen any of these but I know Baby Yoda who is a real cutie. He should make a guest appearance on the show I love called The Zoo.

  11. I haven't finished the first two, I'll finish just the first I think and I need to watch Watchmen soon.

    and agreed, Baby Yoda is life.

    1. I know, that's so ridiculous. We should've all gotten it at the same time.
