Man The Walking Dead has turned into Z Nation, only it still takes itself seriously.

It used to be a good quality show, but now I just watch it to see how bad it's gotten. It's still the highest rated show on cable but the show's popularity peaked last season and the ratings are slowly dropping. I think a lot of people still watch hoping it will get good again, and then it has a huge fanbase of fanboys that watch and defend it no matter what.

I do like messing wit the fanboys now though, they are some of the thinniest skinned people you'll meet online.

So I generally really like the Netflix MCU shows. I love Daredevil, Jessica Jones is good but I have a few gripes, and Luke Cage is decent but to that point it was by far the weakest of the 3.

I was looking forward to Iron Fist and I was disappointed when the early reviews really panned it. But I still wanted to give it a chance.

I'm through Episode 6 (which is what the first reviews got) and I have to say....the critics are full of crap. Now it's not the best MCU show, not even close. But it's nowhere near as terrible as most of them let on. The guy playing Danny Rand isn't the best but he's not the worst I've ever seen. The story is decent and the supporting cast is great. The martial arts is definitely weak compard to Daredevil and the guy playing Rand needs a ton more training to make it more realistic, but again, it's not SyFy channel bad.

I don't want to go too political but there was a lot of backlash because they kept the main character white (even though he's white in the comic), and it kind of feels like that backlash is bleeding over into the reviews. Case in point, most of the criticisms they've thrown out I felt like you could make about Luke Cage, yet that was given a pass and praised. That's my cynicism talking but something is just way off about their reviews.

Again, it's not the best, not even close, but it's also not nearly as bad as they let on, and honestly at WORST it's on the same level as Luke Cage. It's almost like they gave Luke Cage (and to an extent Jessica Jones) free passes on things and decided Iron Fist was going to be the scapegoat. It's just simply not that bad.

Of coruse it could totally go off the rails these last 7 episodes but I'm doubting it.

What a time.

Better Call Saul just started Season 3, The Americans is in the middle of Season 5, and Fargo Season 3 starts next week.

Fargo is just simply maybe the best show on TV. And somehow they seem to top the previous season's cast every year. Ewan McGregor probably already has an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination wrapped up.

So far I'm watching Gundam Unicorn and Tokyo Ghoul on Toonami, while watching Gundam OO on Hulu. Not to mention watching a game or two of the SC playoffs.

The playoffs are taking over my tv viewing. The first round I try and watch every series I can, so it doesn't leave me much time for anything else.

I've only seen the first couple of eps, but yeah, it's pretty darn good. I'm well ahead of this in the book, which is a real page-turner.

I've been looking for a new book series to get into. I've started reading A Song of Ice and Fire a second time (Game of Thrones for non-cool people) and I'm dying for something similar to catch my attention. A long, in depth and character-driven book series to get lost in.

And as usual, the first episode of Fargo was excellent.
