Gonna start the new Swamp Thing series as soon as I re watch the old 80s movie adaption. (and maybe it's sequel)

I started 24 S5 a few months ago but fell off it. Hope to finish it before the end of the year. Not a fan of the subplot with Logan's wife.

Over the course of the year me and my mom have been watching random episodes/arcs of The West Wing which she loves.

^_^

I watched most of the first 2 seasons last year, I need to resume it.

I finally caught up on the magicians! I marathoned the last 2 seasons just in time for the season 5 premier. I wish I would've read the books before to prepare me, I wasn't expecting a lot of things to play out the way they did. If anyone has just started watching, season 3's episode a life in the day is a masterpiece on par (in my opinion) with some of my favorite Dr. Who episodes.
I've had to many IPA's.

The books are very different from the series. The plot points from the first two novels are roughly similar to seasons 1-3, divrging harder as each season goes until they're effectively unrelated.

Frankly, I consider the show a much better excecution of the basic concept than the books. The books are... mopey, for lack of a better word, and the ending that Grossman wrote tries too hard to be literary, as opposed to the Season 4 finale, which was really earned by the cast and scripts. The show also has some amazing moments that flow from a visual medium as opposed to prose.

I watched all of Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts' first season in a single sitting yesterday. I'd never heard if it before and it looked like a fun way to kill a few hours. Wasn't disappointed! If you've seen the new She-Ra, you have some idea of what to expect in terms of look and tone. I'd also describe the feel very crudely as "what if Adventure Time and Avatar: TLA had a baby". Looking forward to seeing the story continue!
