Currently working through a marathon of Peaky Blinders on BBC Four (9.5 out of 10).

This week, I finished watching the Clooney helmed adaptation of Catch-22. I haven’t read the novel but I’m aware that the series has come under fire for significant deviations and omissions from Heller’s work. Six episodes really wasn’t enough to do the characters and the extremely rich storyline justice but personally, I enjoyed it nonetheless and thought that the symbolism of the closing scene during the final episode was the perfect ending.

6.5 out of 10.

Night Gallery (Season 1)

Watched the pilot movie some years back, but only got around to checking out the series proper in the last couple weeks. I certainly loved the pilot — it’s right up there with The Twilight Zone in quality — but Season 1 itself is a mixed bag. Maybe I’ll check Seasons 2 & 3 out sometime. Maybe not.

SEASON’S RATING

★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

I just finished watching the first season of Magnum PI (with Tom Selleck) - it had been a long time since the first viewing, and really enjoyed it. Obviously a little dated in some places, yet can’t knock the spirit, story and setting of it all.

The Expanse (Season 1)

Finally got around to checking this series out. With the endless Trek/Wars derivatives out there which play fast & loose with the laws of physics, it’s refreshing to see a more hard sci-fi direction for a change. I really got sick of looking at some characters, though, due to their stupid hairstyles (Tom Jane and Dominique Tipper, I’m looking at you two.) Make no mistake, though; I really did enjoy the season and will be continuing with the series.

★★★★★★★★☆☆
