You inspired me to count. I’ve watched 33, and none of those surprise me, although surprised at some of the stuff I haven’t watched. 30 for 30, really? For me, the 30 Rock ranking works. I would’ve put Justified on the list.Interesting list. I’ve watched 5 of the 50, and only 1 in the top 10, and I wouldn’t have put 30 Rock in the top 10.
The Power (2023 Amazon Prime)- Teenage girls become able to generate and project electricity from their bodies, as an evolutionary protective quality, and the impact it has on society. I’m into this 4 episodes, and it’s holding my interest, especially a sequence in Saudia Arabia where basically women are shown in a process of unchaining themselves. I would not be surprised if this is banned in some countries. So far so good, 4 more episodes to go. It’s been renewed.
Is this on Paramount +? If so, I’ll try it.Star Trek Strange New Worlds is the first time I’m enjoying Star Trek in many years. Back to basics, first contact type stuff.
A year or two ago I tried getting into Discovery and Picard and just couldn’t, and I’m a big TNG fan. Now that we’ve got a series about 5 year missions again, it pretty gratifying to watch. Season 1, episode 4, Memento Mori, is an instant classic.
The UK version of Ghosts came first. It was brilliant. I watched it a few years ago. Never bothered with the US version.I am noticing that the networks, at least CBS, are bring in shows from overseas to fill time slots in Primetime. First is was NCIS: Australia and last night I saw an ad for Ghosts: UK.
Guess they have to do something while the SAG strike is going on.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Paramount + 2022- ) I finally got around to starting this. Thumbs up! I like Anson Mount as Pike, Ethan Peck as Spock, Babs Olusanmokun, as the doctor, Rebecca Romijn (X-Men: Mistique) as number 1. In some ways Anson Mount is the better Kirk, just an opinion.
While it was previously announced it was going to have a second season, the book #11, Bad Luck & Trouble will be the basis.
I have not read this book so it will all be new when it releases sometime in early 2023.
