    My wife fell into that trap too, for a good while. That show is so mundane.
    We stared watching Invincible. Animated show about a teenager superhero, who is learning to control his powers, while also being a school going teenager. For all that stick, there's enough violence, and sub plots to keep it interesting.

    Invincible finally dropped? I feel like it's been in process for so long that it was still just getting trailers dropped saying coming soon.

    Exterminate All the Brutes.

    Pros - narrator is Haitian who sounds like King Harald Finehair from Vikings. Great historical videos. Individual stories (vignettes) are good.

    Cons - you need Ritalin to keep up. Poor sequencing and no transitions so it's very disjointed.

    Also, theres a lot of torture porn. So be prepared to watch some horrific stuff.

    I want to love it... but I'm barely liking it. 5/10

    City On A Hill. Kevin Bacon plays a rakish FBI agent trying to crack down on armored car robberies in Boston with the help of Aldis Hodge, the token black ADA at the time. Takes place in 91, so Rodney King beating just happened (among other things) so racial tensions are fairly high and a relatively central part of the show, when they're not showing working class irish bank robbers or Bacon fucking up his home life. It starts out verrry strong in the first 2 episodes, but then really slows down the pace for character development/setup until about episode 6. Overall it's really good imo. definitely worth a watch if you're in the mood for what's basically a 90s period piece (which feels weird to say).

    Wellington Paranormal. Its a spin-off from What we do in the shadows. Same dry/sarcastic humor and very silly.
