Watched the two seasons of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Hadn't seen them before. Thought it was pretty well done except for the choice of having John Connor be an annoying-to-the-audience teenager. Still worth watching.While I was watching it was clear they lacked the budget to really run with the concept. These days we have streaming services outbidding each other to make super expensive shows, so one of them should make ~3 seasons of Terminator: The John Connor Chronicles where John, a not-annoying young man has to try to prevent Judgement Day and survive assassination attempts aided by a shifting cast of contemporary folks and future soldiers/turned machines.
Catching up on Nicola Walker:Last Tango in Halifax - Christmas special and series 5: Enjoyable British comedy, good mix of heartwarming and more biting humor. Special mention: Tony Gardner's amazing performanceThe Split series 2 - Disappointing. Characters doing whatever the plot requires without good motivation.Aside: I hope the UK does not consume alcohol in real life like it does in TV shows...

[...] Hopefully there's some stuff in later seasons that makes it worth it.I hear there is but I stopped at the end of season 5 and so far am sticking with that decision. Was also getting tired of Jared's three expressions.For anyone who hasn't watched, the first five seasons are endlessly inventive, entertaining, and a complete story arc.
