@JohnnyShoulder As far as the storytelling goes, what’s impressed me the most is how it weaves the modern day events to those in the past, when the family lived in Hill House, jumping back and forth to give context. And like I said, because I was totally invested in the story and felt empathy with all the main characters, plus I’m a big softy, I found parts to be really emotional. First ☹️, then 😢 with 😥, followed by 😭😭😭. Hopefully you’ll like it too...let me know ☺️

@KALofKRYPTON All these MCU Netflix cancellations just make me grateful Jessica Jones lived to fight another day, even if season 2 wasn't all that great.

@Tjuz Luke Cage season 2 was great too.

I think this may be the start of Disney pulling everything for their own streaming service.

@KALofKRYPTON Yep I agree. Hopefully it's not sign of other studios and tv networks doing something similar.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@KALofKRYPTON I can't say I've seen Luke Cage. I didn't really have any interest in doing so after his character not really clicking with me in Jessica Jones. Good to hear it was a great show though, and it's definitely sad for all the MCU Netflix fans that these shows seem like they're being cancelled in a haste! I hope Jessica Jones doesn't become the next victim, but after these two shows being cancelled I can't see it not being cancelled after season 3.

Id be happy with just Jessica Jones, the rest are just okay/good, JJ Season 1 had the best writing.

Looks like Luke Cage has been cancelled as well. It's a shame, the series had some really good villains like Cottonmouth and Bushmaster. Didn't like Mariah and Shades but those two, Billy Russo and Kingpin were my favourite villains in Netflix's Marvel series.

@KALofKRYPTON probably although i'll be honest i wasn't impressed by ANY of the Marvel Netflix shows, they all seemed to be lacking something

but like you said it's probably to do with Disney creating their own streaming service

@beemo The second season of Luke Cage is easily the best of all of Marvel shows so far.

In other TV news; the latest Doctor Who episode 'Rosa' was handled far, far better than I expected. Even among the slightly preachy messaging - I genuinely felt that it was a largely well done return to the show's distant educational past! It also took me ages to spot who the villain was - he was in Revenge!

Also, if you can access BBC iPlayer - watch Informer. It's brilliant!

@KALofKRYPTON you know what i liked about Rosa, it's didn't sugercoat it like the previous seasons did, it showed history as it was instead of through the eyes of today and that is a much better way to show just why it was bad and why it needs to change than pretending everything was better than it was like they did during the Tennant/Smith/Capaldi eras

we shouldn't be editing history in our TV, Films and Video Games otherwise we will never learn from the mistakes of the past

@FullbringIchigo Spiders and Chris Noth!!

What's the betting that the spiders are 'misunderstood' in some way?

@KALofKRYPTON i hope not, i want it to be a proper invasion

this new series is going very old school Who in the way it's telling it's stories and i like it, falling back on the Tennant tropes would be a step in the wrong direction if you ask me

@FullbringIchigo I also hope Revenge bloke is a recurring villain, I also hope that if he is a recurring villain he doesn't actually tie back to River Song.

@KALofKRYPTON i would like him to be a recurring Villain, maybe he is the Rani as the Master has been kind of rehabilitated (and if the Master and Doctor can change gender then why can't the Rani)

@FullbringIchigo Did you not see the last Master/Missy story?

I hope he's not a Timelord at all - a genuine threat for sure, but not a Timelord.

@KALofKRYPTON yeah missy killed the master and the master killed missy (would that be murder or suicide) but death has never stopped the master before

@FullbringIchigo I think they'd be wise to avoid too much retreading. At least early on for 13. The constant call-backs and self reference are one of the things that's hindered new Who.
There's that certain centimentality missing from this new series so far and it feels all the fresher for it. I'm sure it'll reappear down the line - but at the very least having a female Doctor should cast a new light on it.

In other news; finished Informer tonight. One the best bits of drama I've seen on television in a long time. Highly recommended.

Watched Daredevil Season 3 over the weekend. It was a bit slow at times but overall it was really good. Definitely better than Season 2. They introduced another really awesome villain in Bullseye. I'd have to say for the most part they have done a really great job with the villains in their Marvel series.

This is how I would rank their series so far:

1. Daredevil Season 1
2. Daredevil Season 3
3. Daredevil Season 2
4. Jessica Jones Season 1
5. Jessica Jones Season 2
6. Luke Cage Season 1
7. Luke Cage Season 2
8. The Punisher Season 1
9. The Defenders Season 1
10. The Iron Fist Season 2
11. The Iron Fist Season 1
