  • The Sopranos

    I haven't watched this show in 12 years, do the therapy scenes hold up? They bored me watching it when I was 18 but I was a stupid little shit. I remember a lot of complaining about them in general during the shows run, do they stand out at all on rewatches? I want to go through the show again with a different perspective but the way I remember parts of the series dragging has kept me from pulling the trigger.
    Started rewatching. I had only seen the show during the original run when I was in my twenties, and before I had any experience with therapy. I’m about 4 episodes in, and so far they are better than I remember (I was bored by them before, too). There’s a lot of nuance happening, and the shifts in emotion by Gandolfini when he gets to a sore subject is pretty incredible. The first session feels like a play, but then you forget they’re acting, which is kinda cool.

    Fucking legendary. They could end the series now and I’d be happy and satisfied. 
    Though I don’t want it to end, I felt like that could easily be a series finale. Everything except the Dark Saber stuff wrapped up nicely.

    @cdrive loved S1 of Cobra Kai. Got disillusioned early on in S2, but will probably go back to it. 

    Finally finished S1 of The Great on Hulu!! It far exceeded my expectations, and I was way more invested than I thought I’d be. Huzzah!!

    Roots. Bought the series. From the opening, it is brutal. Sure. It is Littlw House on the Prairie production quality. But it is great and brutal. I believe there is a 2016 version that I haven’t seen, but it is a gut-wrenching thing to watch.

    i will say the performances are excellent. LeVar Burton and Louis Gossett Jr are amazing.

    I'm in love with Devs. Was skeptical on the first two episodes. It was interesting, but very mellow and deliberate. I became intrigued with Ep 3 and 4 and would like to know more about the potential of what they are working on. On ep 6 now, and am totally captivated. I want to know more about the macro implications, but I feel like they are going to keep the story focused on the personal impact to the principal characters.
