The Boys, season 2

Season two of “The Boys” carried on the bloody and silly nonsense of season one, which is good because that combination worked well.

I burned through the sixth and final season of “Schitt’s Creek” and now I wish there was just a little bit more.

The visuals and soundtrack of this show are truly innovative. But the story? Not so much.

The Crown, season 3

Since I gravitate toward genre material or comedy, even I can’t fully understand why “The Crown” is one of my favorite shows. But it is.

Altered Carbon, season 2

I watched season one of “Altered Carbon” a long time ago. I wasn’t expecting season two because this show must be expensive to produce.

I started watching “Narcos” when it was still a novelty to watch original shows on Netflix and I didn’t have an ever-growing list of stuff I want to watch.

Mr. Robot, season 4

The final season of “Mr. Robot” was compelling, if a little too enamored with itself in spots (the episode with virtually no dialogue was fine, but it wasn’t necessary).

The Expanse, season 4

I love everything about “The Expanse.” The books are delightful. The series is delightful.

Jack Ryan, season 2

It’s been a very long time since I read a Tom Clancy novel, but my take on Jack Ryan is that he was always the smart-but-reluctant analyst who, by nature of his strong moral compass, found himself amid action (but maybe I’m wrong – or, maybe Ryan evolved into something else in the novels I didn’t read).

Stranger Things, season 3

It’s just a fun, dumb, show.

Dark, seasons 1 and 2

I like to think I’m pretty good at following twisty mythology, and I’ve got a real soft spot for time travel, but toward the end of season two I got really confused.

Seaon 2 was remarkable. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a shockingly good writer.
