I still watch it too even though it hasn't been remotely good for awhile now. I mean it was even sucking in the last two seasons with Carrel. I think the writers made Andy bad again to get him back for filming Hangover III instead of doing the Office. That's why for the first half of this season Andy was doing 1 minute cameos through skype.

I've always felt that dbag Andy was better than the nice guy character. But I agree its stupid to switch him back now since they built up his relationship with Erin for the past 3 or 4 seasons now.


I agree.

Watched it. It was okay. Could have been worse.



Like season 2 of Stranger Things worse.

I watched Dark (German fantasy / time travel drama). I thought it had some of the interesting parts of Stranger Things season 1, while remaining annoyingly German.

I like that most of the actors playing Russians are Russian - and some are even good. Except the uncle (a German?), who I suppose was chosen because the casting director felt at least one Russian has to be that fucking ugly.


This one got progressively worse, particularly the last two episodes. The lead actor (James Norton) is too wooden, which is not entirely his fault. The character is very badly written - there was supposed to be a Michael Corleone-style ark to him and they couldn't make it work.

I saw Norton in two others shows and he was good there. Played a psychopath in one and a priest in another. Maybe this role is too nuanced for him.

Also he doesn't look or act like a Russian.

Killing Eve went from very good to extremely bad and confusing through its eight episodes. Really wanted to like this one after a promising start and because of the mostly great cast.

The action-comedy becomes more and more of a parody and not in a way that appeals to me. Characters become too ridiculous, some are killed indiscriminately and the tone borders on nihilistic. It's also been said that this is basically a queer show so maybe I am not the ideal viewer.

Very English Scandal - Phoenix Buchanan resurfaces as a leader of the liberal party, has anal sex with Paddington, followed by a messy breakup, Paddington ratting him out to the MI5 and Buchanan putting out a hit on Paddington.

Actually got better after a bit of a pedestrian first episode. I like old Hugh Grant a lot.

My most anticipated series this year - Bodyguard - turns out to be a complete turkey. Too bad.

Really wanted to like it, but what a fucking mess.
