During my leave these past few weeks i was able to catch up with some of the series world’s newest editions and older series i might have missed
started of with guilt a british series about a murder, the acting was ok (the lead) to good (billy zane) but felt really dragging in places, i watched the entire first season (10 episodes) doubt there’ll be a season 2.
Second older series i started watching is good behaviour. I have only watched one episode so far but i am hooked and i see season 2 has started recently already so it must be as good as im expecting it to be.
then its off to the new series thats started the episode a week type
im really digging swat, character development is good and the story lines are all pretty grounded, so far every episode seems to be self contained as i havent noticed a season arc type of thing developing yet.
Second new weekly series is dynasty, its very soap like to be honest, superficial and unrealistic characters, only reason im watching it is because of the chick from tokyo drift thats in there, i’ll be utterly surprised if it gets another season
third new one is the good doctor, a series about a brilliant young doctor (like doogie howser) with autism, watched the first 3 episodes so far and the acting from the lead is pretty good (you cant tell if he really has autism or acting that he’s got, he’s doing all the nuances to the T) a show with potential imo.
I watched the first 2 eps of SEAL Team, and I gotta say, while the pilot episode was pretty awesome and showed alot of potential, i kinda feel like the 2nd ep already slotted into a predictable “dilemma of the week our hero will solve with all parties happy” kind of grind. I hope its not the case, but I read some reviews saying just that, that it gets a bit predictable and formulaic but is still enjoyable.
Dude, there is nothing unique but I love the cast, I like how they try to accurately portray the lives of Seals, not just the action, but the real life crap they have. I am enjoying seeing David Boreanaz in a more serious role.
seal team is pretty accurate and realistic from an executing point of view from the episodes i saw, especially the halo jump episode with the oxygen pre breathing etc, s.w.a.t is also pretty damn accurate but thats expected since its made by shawn ryan, the same guy that did the shield
