No movies this week. I did try to watch a a made for TV movie that had a male nanny in it and I thought that might be fun. I turned it off about ten minutes in. It was not good.
So I thought I'd talk about some of the new sci-fi genre TV I'm watching. Aftermath The Travelers, Falling Water and Westworld.
I've only seen the first episode of The Travelers and Falling Water and two episodes of Aftermath and Westworld, but so far I'm at the very least intrigued if not outright interested.
The Travelers is mind time travel and the set up is good, I'm looking forward to seeing where they're going with it.
Falling Water is fucked the hell up. I do love a story where you're not quite sure what is real, what is the pov character's imagination. I do love an unreliable narrator.
Aftermath is sort of like The Walking Dead, except that instead of just Zombies they've thrown ever kind of beastie, demon, disease in there that they could think of. So far I'm liking it, but I hope that they have a plan and aren't just throwing everything at the story and hoping it'll sort itself out somewhere down the line.
Westworld is interesting, but I already feel for the fabricated people who are being used as things and I have a feeling it's going to be a hard watch the farther on we go.
I do love the fact that there is more and more sci-fi/fantasy/specfic type shows out there, and not just as summer replacements anymore, either. This is the advantage to all the channels that aren't 'the major networks' out there. They can do shorter seasons, but are less tied to what is perceived as mainstream and most popular.
