Halt and Catch Fire: Season 3

The amazing chemistry between cast members, the lovely writing, the humour, the tension, it's amazing.

Halt and Catch Fire: Season 2

Even on a rewatch that made me appreciate season 1 more, the upgrade on season 2 is palpable. After a couple of episodes to start the engines, it becomes amazing.

Halt and Catch Fire: Season 1

It's amazing how good and gripping it is even on a rewatch. And it's the weaker season!

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 7

A lovely final season, with a nice ending, some touching moments, and, as per usual, a couple of outstanding episodes. Plus, I appreciated the return of Kevin Tancharoen for the series finale: his action scenes have always been some of the best stuff this show had to offer and he didn't disappoint here. I also appreciate that they acknowledged how silly all these fake deaths have been and they joked about it but still, they've been doing it for too long and it stole all the feeling of danger and tension from the whole show. Still, it was fun.

Unbelievable

Amazing stuff. Great writing, great acting, it works really well both as a drama about victims and a detective story. I loved it. Plus, Loretta McCready is in my heart.

Masha and the Bear: Season 3

Alwasy consistent and basically irresistible.

Chip and Potato: Season 1

This is cute, lovely, fun, cute, full of nice teaching but most of all incredibly cute.

Rabbids Invasion: Season 1

Honestly, this is boring as hell and even my daughter doesn't want to watch it.

Masha and the Bear: Season 2

I'm not sure how the season progression actually works because the order on Netflix is messed up but this gets better and better.

Masha and the Bear: Season 1

Funny, bizarre, full of crazy ideas, a good mix of slapstick gags for kids and idiotic humour for parents. Adorable.

Tumble Leaf: Season 3

Even better than season 2: more experimentation, more narration, more crazy ideas, a bit of continuity and some really moving moments.

Tumble Leaf: Season 2

With season 2 they start messing around and experimenting with narration and visual style. Now it's really good. I was even moved a couple of times.

T'choupi à l'école: Season 1

A lovely show for pre-schoolers, with very simple lessons mostly around the theme of "be nice to each other". Nice art style.

Simon: Season 1

This is a lovely show, funny, smart and with a nice art style. The opening theme has been singed many times in our house and we still sing Simon's improvisation at the guitar (Caca boudin, super lapin, bébé cadum, la tarte aux pommes). <3

Pete the Cat: Season 2

It's still consistently quite good, with a nice evolution in the art style, a bit more ambition in terms of visual ideas and a very emotional peak in the Parents' Day Surprise episode. Overall, it's lovely.

Gangs of London: Season 1

The first five episodes are out of this world and they constantly get better. The last four are still very, very good but they pay the price of having to do so much work to properly end a really complex story.

50 States of Fright

Basically, it's a Creepshow reboot without having to pay for the rights. And it's fine.

Dummy: Season 1

This is a fun show. I honestly don't know what else I could say about it.

The Stranger (2020) (US)

If you watched a few movies in the genre, there isn't a single surprise, but thanks to solid (but over the top) acting, good rhythm, some smart work in terms of exploiting the Quibi formula with pacing and composition, this is an entertaining thriller.

The Mandalorian: Season 1

Very well made, precise, with a clear direction, a solid production, a lovely soundtrack and a great cast. This is everything The Rise of Skywalker wasn't. Plus, when it works, it's kinda great: the last three episodes are quite good and I would argue that if you put together the last two episodes they form one of the best Star Wars movies. That being said, at the same time, I found it a bit too much "by the book" and while I love the cinephile approach, it kinda feels like every single good scene is a homage to some movie and after a while it's too much. Great music.

Good Omens

Michael Sheen and David Tennant are of course great and adorable as usual, every scene with them in it is lovely. And the rest of the cast is also quite good. Overall, it's an enjoyable show but I think it lacks something, I got the impression that Neil Gaiman wasn't particularly able (or interested) in really adapting it for the screen. Much of the humour feels like something that would work better on the page and it lacks the timing or the structure it would need to be great in a visual medium. It really feels very "pratchety", but again, I had the impression that it would worked best if you're reading it in a novel and you let it breath. That being said, again, it's quite enjoyable and the last two episodes are really engaging.

The Little Drummer Girl

Wonderfully written, directed and acted. Florence Pugh is out of this world.

True Detective: Season 3

A solid season. I particularly loved the acting and the fact that in the end the mystery was just an excuse to talk about family and friendship. What a pity that Jeremy Saulnier didn't direct all the episodes, though.

iZombie: Season 5

A good ending for a lovely series.

The Good Place: Season 4

What an amazing ending for an amazing series. It's incredibly funny, smart, poignant and frankly moving. Great writing, great acting, great directing.

Succession: Season 2

This is some frankly amazing shit. The level of fun, drama, zingers, beautiful writing, great directing, amazing acting, plot twists, tension, laughs, burns, emotions... Plus, I'm constantly amazed at how it makes me get emotional for people I despise. The best show on TV.

Great cast, amazing writing and directing, superb attention to detail and an incredible ability to balance drama, comedy, tragedy, farce. I deeply care and I am sincerely moved by things happening to people I despise. This is the best show on TV right now.

BoJack Horseman: Season 6

I think the first half of the last season is a great return to form, that finally manages to get back to the level of excellence that Bojack Horseman always promised but only in season 3 consistently reached. Also, I like the vibe, how it's preparing the ending by reflecting on the past and touching an all characters. Very, very good. Let's see how it ends.

Rick and Morty: Season 4

I laughed a lot but I have to admit it's starting to feel a bit samey. Maybe it's time to end it.
