    [perfect, i just googled the episode and it's called "the lonely"; feck all Rod, you're amazing.]
    I don't think the religious aspects are too much. More philosofical, but that's just me.

    What is annoying is that S2E1 didn't have a S1 recap, ugh. S1 was over a year ago and I forgot some thangs. Better read an online recap before I watch any more eps.

    Hmmm. Okay, the New York Times review laid it out as two factions, one of all deeply religious humans living on some planet and the other robots raising humans with their only objective being to keep the humans alive and not religious. Which as a premise sounds fun but if it is just veiled present day, dude, I can't.

    Haven't fallen in love with a Sci-fi show in awhile and visually interesting is a category they've created (for me) on all my streaming services. Throwback to my stoner days? Nah. Found LegionX years after the fact, loved it (think i wrote a review). So much so that I tried to re-watch but the main character's mental illness was too sad to watch, season 2 is still pending in my queue.

    Okay, I'll give it a try this weekend. Raised by wolves...watch out!

    Barry: Season 3



    As a native of Los Angeles my tolerance for transplant theater people is admittedly low but factor in a hit-man trying to find his second act while simultaneously living a double life, coping with a destructive (read: toxic masculinity) relationship and mentoring Chechen mobsters all while finding the time to drive to the Valley for acting classes to spend time with his high-maintenance crush. Kudos my guy, you may be living your best/worst life. The only thing missing: being California sober (read: only smokes weed but goes to AA).

    Tokyo Vice is so, so good. I don't want it to end.

    Don't need a spinoff, just more peacemaker.

    It looks really good but I am at a point in my life where this may be too dark/depressing for me. I won’t count it out but I will have to be in the right frame of mind.

    Ghosts

    Young English couple (late 20’s) finds out they’ve inheritedan Estate (think Downton Abbey size) jackpot, right? Oh no, it’s haunted by all the people who’ve died on that land and haven’t been able to pass to the other side. The eight ghosts are not fans of people in general, so they want them out and involves their new tenant having an “accident”. Due to this "accidental" near-death experience can now see and hear the ghosts (gasp, whaaa??!) that haunt the estate. Quirky comedy ensues.

    Is this scary? No! Is this a fresh idea? In a way. Are the ghosts goofy and representative of a solid timespan throughout history and are the people sweetly charming? Yes. The storyis more about the ensemble cast interacting and less about the person who can’t see ghosts confronting their partner about her possible break with reality and this is probably a mental illness. We just all accept she can see ghosts and it’s adorable. As most of the things I review here it has an enduring heart and is a nice break from everything going on outside. Happy-go-lucky people, this is for you. =)

    (Just googled for a picture and there is a -guaranteed- sh**ty American remake- pass; watch the English version)
