Carnival Row comes out on Prime at the end of the month. Trailer certainly captured my attention. Strong cast, and looks like a big budget production.

Rather than searching out that which reinforces our view, we should seek out that which challenges it. Only then can we become all we are capable of being.

While the Appalachian Mountains stretch from parts of Canada to Alabama, the cultural region of Appalachia typically refers only to the central and southern portions ranging from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, south-westerly to the Great Smoky Mountains, and is called home by approximately 25 million people

Personally I thought the last episode was a distinct high point of a rather underwhelming season.

I started watching two new shows on Netflix.

1) "Another Life" a sci-fi show about a ship heading off to make first contact staring Katee Sackhoff of Starbuck fame.
It's a bit "meh", a poor start IMO but getting better as it goes on. It suffers from something I've seen a lot in recent TV, it doesn't know what the hell it wants to be.
It's like a Star Trek that's trying very hard to be Battlestar. All the seriousness is undercut by the silliness and visa versa.

2) "Wu Assassins" a show about guy magically imbued with kung fu mastery and tasked with taking down 5 (or is it 6?) elementally powered "warlords" who will destroy the world, with the help of his friends, his mystical slave master and a cop.
Now this is some goofy stuff, it's silly and (unlike the previous show) it knows and leans in. Everything is OTT.
It stars Iko Uwais, most famous for "the Raid", "The Night Comes for Us", and more recently "Triple Threat" which are all very violent, serious films full of some exceptionally good martial arts. This latter quality also carries over to this silly show. . . . and as a budding martial artist myself there's a lot to appreciate.
The moment it REALLY sold itself on me however was when the first major fight scene is set to "Boombayah" by (my favourite K-pop band) Blackpink.
Hits at least two of my boxes, I'm in!

I am also continuing to watch She-Ra which continues to be brilliant, although I'm not sure I like the structure they've gone for which would seem to be: SUPER short seasons released pretty regularly.

Sigh.

Yeah it was.

Why didnt they choose not to explain how the huge number of Russians with insane amount of equipment got into the middle of the US?
I was imagining a portal, but we were left with nothing.

The last season appears to be a combination of cool character moments with weakly held story. Disappointing.
