Bridgertons is a very cool tv series. The love line is just incredible. "Pride and prejudice" reminded me a lot. Also, the series is quite funny, it's interesting to watch.
The show has some really odd creative choices compared to the books.I finished season 2 of The Witcher. Was not nearly as invested as I was for the first season, which I watched again recently. Much preferred the weekly villain of the week with an arc sat in the background before coming to the fore at the end of the season, this just felt like arc arc arc.
I’m glad I didn’t read the books, because i loved Season 1The big name out here is The Witcher and in all honesty.. it has continued to disappoint me. Think it was the third.. or fourth (can't even remember which one) episode by which I could barely tolerate it? The show seems to take a lot of liberties from the books which infrequently works out well (such as the first episode) but for the most part looks really odd or downright terrible (like with the character of certain Witchers). The first season felt like a slog already but the second seems to be only a slight improvement despite Henry Cavill's best efforts to make it look palatable.
Exactly, i love that it was more of a "street-level" show, rather than something grandiose like Loki or WandaVision. Really wanna see more of this, and more Daredevil and Kingpin..
Hawkeye was a breath of fresh air compared to the usual high stakes games that Marvel indulges in. I loved Kate Bishop and pretty much everyone felt bang on point. The show handled itself really well and made me really appreciate Clint Barton a lot more (100% win record for a reason ). But like the rest of the Marvel shows though.. this also fails to stick the landing after such a promising setup and the penultimate episode being really good. It feels as though they chickened out of certain character choices and wanted to play it safe with the story to allow for more MCU freedom in the future. A bit of handing over a 'clean slate' so that the next blockbuster movie can do what it wants with these characters without restrictions to bring in the big money. To an extent I feel like every Marvel show suffers from the same problem wherein they cannot stray too far away from the template or raising the stakes due to them still not being considered 'essential viewing' in comparison to the movies. Loki seems to be the only series that has escaped this issue and apart from the whole morally questionable arc in there, the rest of the show is bang on.
