November 2019 Favorites

If you’ve seen the present, you’ve seen all things, from time immemorial into all of eternity. For everything that happens is related and the same.

TV Shows

  • South Park, 23– Another funny season of this political incorrect TV show. These times covering stories like immigration, China, the anti-vaccination movement, or plant-based diets.
  • Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, 2 P – Good season with a lot of action.
  • The Terror, 2 P – I started watching the seconds season of The Terror. This time a group of Japanese prisoners in a US internment camp gets haunted during WWII by a yūrei.
  • Fleabag 1 2 P – This British TV show is very funny. I enjoyed every minute of both (too short) seasons. Hopefully soon more of this.
  • The Expanse, 2 3 P – I timed watching these two seasons exactly to be finished when the 4th season starts on December, 13th.
  • Mr. Robot, 4 P – This season has some really fantastic episodes. Two have a nearly perfect 10.0 score right now. I liked episode 405 in particular because it is filmed without any talking.
  • The End of the Fxxxing World, 2 N – The second season of this British TV show is very funny and filled with black humour.
  • Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories, 2 N – I already loved the first season of this Japanese TV show, which takes place in a Tokyo diner that opens between midnight to 7 am. It’s a TV show with short stories, interesting dialogs, and food.

Movies

  • Seth Meyers: Lobby Baby N – The Netflix comedy special of Seth Meyers.
  • Klaus N – One of the best Christmas movies I’ve seen so far. The story, ideas, animation, and artwork are amazing!

Music & Podcast
