    Recently The Rain ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6656238/ ) popped up on Netflix, so I thought I'd give it a try, and all I can say is:
    Why are all post apocalyptic shows about such stupid people? It's like "Let's do the stupidest thing possible" and moments later it's "Oh no, it has backfired, what are going to do now?"

    for post apocalyptic shows, hard to beat the 1975's The Survivors

    Things were better when shows had to rely on plot and acting and not cgi.
    Sapphire and Steel still one of the scariest tv shows just with a flash light and a great sound track.

    i need to watch that one tbh, it's supposed to be really good.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    There's no CGI (to speak of) in The Rain, AFAIR.

    Considering that it's a Danish TV(?) series (=low budget compared to other shows) it relies more on characters and story than on flash, boom, bang, which is basically non-existant in the show.

    I didn't like the last part and especially the end of it, obviously aimed at a posible 2nd season. But overall I liked it. I've seen far worse "stupidest possible thing" in more high profile shows (I'm looking at you, TWD...). I even think that for the most part they actually tried to do the right thing, perhaps sometimes badly executed. And quite a few "oh my god, how can you...?!?" moments were given a reasonable explanation, e.g. (without too much spoilers) that peaceful little community and why especially one of the female group members responded so well to them.

    tl;dr
    I'd give it a 3 to 3.5 out of 5.

    Sapphire and Steel scared me in ways that Doctor Who never did.

    Mark Kermode's new TV series on films started yesterday. It's alright, though good lord is he a boring presenter. It's like watching a dull but informative uni lecture. Give me Waldemar Januszczak any day.

    Sharp Objects just started, seems interesting.

    Condor - run of the mill spy conspiracy stuff, watchable.

    Who is Ameria ? - Sacha Baron Cohens new lolUS show

    Marvels Cloak & Dagger - capeshit. not as bad as other capeshit.

    Strange Angel - some weird show about rocekts and satanists in the 40s. dunno...not horrible ?

    handmaids tale just finished season 2

    Preacher is Preacher

    I really didn't think they were going with a second season of Iron fist. First one was.. underwhelming.

    "I am the Immortal Iron Fist!" Yeah we know. We KNOW!

    I think it was better than Luke Cage s1 and Defenders.
    First seasons are always an "origin story" and most are pretty daft.

    DD s3 and Punisher S2 is 2019

    Better than Luke Cage? Well, tastes differ, I guess.

    Of all the Marvel series, for me Iron Fist was underwhelming in comparison to the 4 others. And only saved by Jessica Henwick's and Rosario Dawson's characters and acting.
