I don’t get much time to watch TV, but we have managed to catch these two great shows.
Well, we caught and recently finished both seasons of “Santa Clarita Diet,” which is just good family fun.
Okay, maybe not for the whole family. My son probably doesn’t need to see gory cannibalism, even if it is from America’s sweetheart, Drew Barrymore.
And I am the only person who’s watched any “Altered Carbon,” but it’s pretty damn cool!
I’ve only seen two episodes, but it’s a great dark future detective noir with lots of potential. I’ve seen the novel in bookstores, which means it’s a finite story. I’m only two episodes in, out of ten for the “season,” but I’m hoping they don’t artificially stretch the story just to turn a buck. I kind of hope those ten finish the story and there’s only going to be one season to it. I hate when they water good material down just to milk it.
(One example would be the Hobbit movies. Haven’t seen them and I don’t plan to. I can’t imagine how a short children’s book gets turned into a NINE HOUR series. Ridiculous.)
But I don’t want to end on a downer. The good news is, if you haven’t seen either of these shows, give them a chance. You won’t be disappointed!
