Finished a couple of shows where I’ve been sitting on the last ep for a while - never a good sign;
Veep Season 5 - Can’t really put my finger on it but this season was a real let down. Might have been the stupid plot. Might have been the stunt episodes - that doco ep was terrible, as was the sitcom nature of the Camp David ep. Might be the drop in the quality of the swearing, was kinda off. Gonna have to assume it’s because Iannucci’s left.
6.5/10 - No longer HBOs best show.
Ash vs Evil Dead Season 1 - Giving this the benefit of the doubt as there was no way it could live up to hype I had. The beginning and the end were excellent but that mid-season sag was terrible. As was the overall plot.
Bruce still has it though, the assistants were good as well. I’m glad I live in a world where this exists.
7/10 - In for season 2
