I'm working my way through this seasons' new broadcast shows and so far it has been "meh".
The only new show that I was excited for was Stumptown because of Cobie Smulders. But even that show got off to a meh kind of start.
Entertainment Weekly News: The Mandalorian unmasked: ‘We did things no Star Wars fan has ever seen’.
I'm about half-way through the first season of Gotham and I'm really enjoying the show. I like see Jim Gordon struggle as he tries to maintain his integrity in a world of corruption. I like seeing young Bruce Wayne learn and grow into who he is destined to be. I like seeing the relationship between Bruce and Alfred and how Alfred is raising Bruce. I like seeing the Game of Thrones-like power struggles of the Gotham underworld. It's all very interesting.
Apple TV Plus us going to be a hard sell at $9.99/mo and only having a launch lineup of five shows. Especially when it's going up against Disney+.
That is a good deal. Hulu (ad-supported), ESPN+ and Disney+ for $12.99/mo.
The Last Ship
I finished The Last Ship and I am sad that the show went out with such a weak last season. The writers thought they were writing Game of Thrones as they kept killing characters. None of the deaths in this last season caused me to get teary eyed because the writers never earned it. The only death in the season that got me was the death of Nathan James. This show was extremely uneven. The 1st, 3rd and 4th seasons were good. The 2nd was ok. This last was meh.
