Lost in Space Season 3

Lost in Space: Created by Irwin Allen, Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless. With Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Maxwell Jenkins, Taylor Russell. After crash-landing on an alien planet, the Robinson family fight against all odds to survive and escape, but they’re surrounded by hidden dangers. Season 3 is finally here, and it’s exactly what I was hoping for, lots of adventure, lots of plot elements getting wrapped up, lots of “Is Dr Smith evil still?” moments, and ultimately, eight episodes of pure fantastic science fiction goodness. It’s the final season and there’s no plans that I’ve been able to find to continue...

Hit-Monkey

Hit-Monkey: Created by Josh Gordon, Will Speck. With Olivia Munn, Fred Tatasciore, Jason Sudeikis, Ally Maki. It tells the tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American assassin, as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo underworld. Did I expect to like this series when I started it? No, I did not, not even remotely. The animation is stuttered, the concept is silly, the character is silly, and it’s the last project of the now defunct wing of the Disney empire that was busy pumping out sub par Marvel content that only just...

Stargirl Season 2: Summer School

Stargirl: Created by Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti. With Brec Bassinger, Anjelika Washington, Trae Romano, Amy Smart. Teenager Courtney Whitmore joins the Justice Society of America. Based on the character from DC Comics. Another extremely satisfying season of Stargirl, this time around the bad guy is Eclipso, someone who I never thought I would ever see on television, nor did I think I’d see him done so well. Brec Bassinger is still great as Courtney Whitmore and the production values have been high for the entire season, much like season one. Buy On Amazon!

Foundation Season 1

Foundation: Created by Josh Friedman, David S. Goyer. With Lou Llobell, Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Leah Harvey. A complex saga of humans scattered on planets throughout the galaxy all living under the rule of the Galactic Empire. It’s been famously said that the “Foundation” book series could never be adopted to television, and for the most part they were right. Not that this isn’t a good series, it is in fact, one of the best science fictions stories on TV right now, but because what they’ve filmed is just different enough from the source material that I would consider it...

Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop: Created by Christopher L. Yost. With John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, Daniella Pineda, Elena Satine. A ragtag crew of bounty hunters chases down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll save the world – for the right price. I didn’t watch the original Cowboy Bebop back when it originally came out, just never came into my orbit. I had the opportunity to watch it a couple years ago, took that opportunity, and was underwhelmed with what I experienced. I’m sure if I had seen it 30 years ago it would have been a somewhat revelatory experience, as I’m a huge...

See Season 2

See: Created by Steven Knight. With Jason Momoa, Sylvia Hoeks, Hera Hilmar, Christian Camargo. Far in a dystopian future, the human race has lost the sense of sight, and society has had to find new ways to interact, build, hunt, and to survive. All of that is challenged when a set of twins are born with sight. A second season come and gone, this show is increasingly better and better. It started with families torn apart and ended with a war of blind people waging battles in interesting ways that made the concepts seem new and fresh. Buy On Amazon!

Ted Lasso Season 2

Ted Lasso: Created by Brendan Hunt, Joe Kelly, Bill Lawrence, Jason Sudeikis. With Jason Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, Brendan Hunt, Nick Mohammed. American college football coach Ted Lasso heads to London to manage AFC Richmond, a struggling English Premier League soccer team. As much as season one was about building the team and offering unrelenting optimism in the face of adversity, season two was about taking the stage built in S1 and seeing how things were still broken and watching it all fall apart, but with a heartfelt support system in place to make the pain less sharp. It’s still a...

Titans Season 3

Titans: Created by Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns. With Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Ryan Potter, Teagan Croft. A team of young superheroes combat evil and other perils. An extreme jump in story and cinematic quality, my one big complaint is that, as usual, the people with actual powers are sidelined for nearly the entire thing, or aren’t used in an effective manner, so it all devolves into admittedly cool martial arts, with rapid camera changes and frequent (reversible) deaths. I’m not kidding about the jump in quality from the prior seasons, there’s a couple episodes that are downright beautiful....

Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 2

Star Trek: Lower Decks: Created by Mike McMahan. With Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero. The support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies. The second second comes to a close with it’s 10th episode and the show keeps getting better and better with every 20 minute show. Episode 9 was particularly fantastic, it’s in my top 10 episodes of Trek for all time! Buy On Amazon!

Star Wars: Visions

Star Wars: Visions: With Adam Sietz, Chô, Yuuki Shin, Neil Kaplan. Star Wars anthology series that will see some of the world’s best anime creators bring their talent to this beloved universe. A great mini series of nine “what if” stories that are completely disconnected from the Star Wars universe, for better or worse. There’s a lot here for everyone to love, but because these stories are all told so differently and from so many points of view, I doubt anyone’s going to absolutely love all of them the same, I surely didn’t. I’m happy to see the show though,...
