In a month where Halloween was essentially cancelled, at least I had my TV. Here's what I watched.
Lovecraft Country - This show is amazing but that finale...I'm gonna need Ruby to be OKAY next season. (If there's a next season?) and I also need an explanation on why they framed Dee like a Bond villain at the end of it. Either way, this show hit it out of the park. Jig-a-Bobo and Rewind 1921 were tremendous episodes.
The Sopranos - I finished! I must be dumb because I did not see Tony killing Christopher coming at all. I expected Paulie and Chris to get into it and be the end of each other. I really didn't care for the focus going on AJ during the last few episodes. He was such an awful character and it felt like a nuisance. Bobby's death hit me the hardest in the final season. I don't care for the ending, but I knew it was going to end that way before I started, so at least I was prepared.
The Third Day - This show should've been called "Poor choices: The mini-series." I'm at a weird place with this. it's simultaneously intriguing and frustrating. It's a good story, but the plot dictates that every single person must make at least 5 dumb as fuck decisions at any given time. The ending was satisfying for a few characters, but far too open ended for others. And I hate to single out a child actor but one of them was so bad in this that it was distracting.
The Vow - I was pretty positive about this documentary last month, but now that it's finished, I'm annoyed. At first I understood why there were so many episodes, but after watching the last two, which really hammer in the point of this hard, I realize they didn't need all of this. They could've made it more concise and now there's a season two on the horizon...why? What more can they possibly use as filler?
Fargo - This season has been so underwhelming. It will be interesting for a few minutes, then goes right back to being boring. What a waste of a tremendous cast.
Unsolved Mysteries - I'm happy they had more of these but their supernatural stories are such a bust...right? Those are always the least interesting to me.
The Undoing - I'm already hooked on this, even though I was essentially screaming at my TV for Nicole Kidman's character to throw her husband under the bus.
The Mandalorian - Season 2 got off to an amazing start! JJ Abrams could learn a lot from this show on how they do subtle fan service, and not forced garbage like we got in TROS. I'm happy this is a weekly thing again.
The Haunting of Bly Manor - I binged this show in a few days and overall I really liked it, but episodes 6 and 7 almost made me wish I didn't start it. I absolutely hate when scenes repeat themselves. It gives me Vantage Point flashbacks. I think they could've explained themselves far better and in a far more concise way, but it doesn't ruin the series as a whole.
