The answer is “not much, really”. I bounced hard off of The Orville
(which one of my friends actually thinks is great, proving that he’s
taken one too many shots to the head (“Hi, Rory!”)), and there really
doesn’t seem to be anything else on cable that sounds even vaguely
- Restaurant To Another World
- For the most part, nothing really happens in this well-drawn,
slow-paced series about why a little hole-in-the-wall Tokyo restaurant
really shuts down one day a week. Relationships between the owner/chef
and his fantasy-world customers develop slowly, and it looks like there
are even a few honest-to-gosh spoilers coming, but for the most part it just
drifts along with diner-of-the-week stories and some rare mild fan-service.
Next up: the restaurant gets a clothing-challenged second waitress.
- Legends Of Tomorrow, season 2
- Finally catching up on this show, and wondering why I bothered. I
already knew most of what happens, the writers have a pretty shaky
grasp of the historical eras the team visits, the main villain was
more interesting when played by the other actor, Nate is dull even
with powers, Vixen’s WWII-era attitudes appear only when convenient to
the plot, etc, etc. I think I’m pretty much done with the Flarrowverse.
reminded me this existed and I never watched it. Short, fun, mostly
stand-alone episodes, with cute character designs familiar to
anyone who’s seen Hand Maid May et al. It’s a pleasant diversion.
- Kino’s Journey
- The only new anime series that I have any interest in right now.
- Alice & Zoroku
- I really liked the first few episodes, but got sidetracked and
haven’t gotten back to it yet. Definitely one worth finishing.
- Sometime I’ll get around to marathoning the first season, and
quite possibly the second. What little I’ve seen of it has been
a decent reimagining of the comic, but I just haven’t been in
the mood for it yet.
