Last of Us Finale (spoilers)

I would have preferred the hospital scene to be a bit longer but otherwise perfect.

Also I love the idea they would do the surgery only in the paediatric department even though they have the entire hospital.

Finished Clarkson’s Farm season 2. Another very good season.

Last of Us VFX Before and After (spoilers)

I love seeing before and afters like this.

something something cgi is ruining movies

A bridge looking towards a blue screen. Then the second shot showing the VFX city added. Joel climing a ladder in front of a blue screen. Second shot shows the city added. Ellie walking over a bridge in front of a blue screen. Second shot shows the city added. A run down street. Second shot shows the background added.

The Last of Us Episode 5 (spoilers)

We got the bloater, finally, and it was as horrifying as I thought it would be.

What an incredible episode.


The Last of Us show is so good I haven't stopped thinking about it since it started. Like, every day I'm thinking about it.

Good news! The Last of Us has been renewed for a second season!

Episode 2 of The Last of Us was perfect.

Last one: Stig Quote Generator.

I grabbed every "some say..." Stig intro from the Top Gear wiki, split them, and then randomised them.

"Some say that he can’t eat mashed potato for religious reasons, and that when he dies he thinks you’ll go to Devon"

Weird old project number three: Who's That Emoji? a game à la "Who's that Pokémon" from the anime.

It uses the fact that you can (sometimes) color emojis in css but it doesn't work all the time. I did this in about 10 minutes, question five actually shows you the emoji 🙃

A colorless heart emoji and the website is asking which color it is

Last of Us episode one is some of the best TV I've ever seen in my life. I already knew what was going to happen but it didn't matter, I couldn't look away. Pedro Pascal is an absolutely perfect casting for Joel.

Brian Hamilton and Ben McCarthy have a Last of Us podcast starting this week, I can't wait. The trailer episode was very good.

📺 Finally watched the “What a sad little life Jane” episode of Come Dine with Me. It’s was better than I could have possibly imagined.

Bye Almanac, Hello Lantern:

I've missed being able to quickly search for a movie or TV show to grab the year or link when posting to Micro.blog. Which is why I built Lantern.

Saying goodbye to an okay blogging platform with an excellent name and replacing it with Lantern.

A screenshot of Lantern showing a search for The Last of Us, a search result with year and an image, and a box with the markdown in it to post to micro.blog

Come Dine with Me attracts a very specific type of nutcase

Watched Inside the Mind of a Cat and they really stretched the definition of science. Cats though.

We just spent 30 minutes watching the Night Stalker documentary on Netflix only to realise we watched it 18 months ago 🤦‍♂️

Finished a rewatch of Gavin and Stacey. We really need to come up with Christmas traditions that don’t involve multiple hours of TV.

That 90s Show trailer

This could actually be good? The original cast is back (at least for some of it).

Last of Us final trailer

This show is going to break me. Looks like Pedro Pascal is gunna nail it.

Finished season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy last night. It was way better than the covid season.

Finished Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (why is that the title?!) last night.

Bit slow at times but Evan Peters deserves an award of some kind for his acting in this.

Trailer for The Last Of Us TV show is out. I am very excited for this.

I'd love to re-edit Lost into shorter seasons. Drop all the side characters who have no effect on anything (sorry Nicki and Paulo), reduce "open the hatch" to one decent episode, just make it more streamline.

Alas, I do not have the time or the skillset.

For All Mankind season 2 and 3 is some of the best TV I've ever watched

Finished both seasons of The Wilds last night, I really enjoyed it. I also found out it's been cancelled when I had a few episodes left 😞

Finished another run through of Futurama. It's criminal that this was cancelled* and yet the Simpsons is still limping along.

* it is getting another season

Can’t believe Better Call Saul is over. What a great show.

Finished Paper Girls season 1. Can't say I was all that impressed with it, perhaps season 2 will be better.

Watched the first 3 episodes of Paper Girls last night.

Could have done with a bigger budget for VFX and it's not quite as weird as I'd like in comparison to the comics but I'm enjoying it so far.

Finished the first season of Reacher on Amazon Prime last night.

I don't think I've ever seen a more accurate book-to-screen translation before. Alan Ritchson is perfect for the role and absolutely nails it. Can't wait for season 2.

The trailer for the Paper Girls series is out. I'm optimistic.

Watched Stranger Things season 4. Might be the worst season for me.

Watched Watch If? Season 1 on Disney+. It was fine, nothing special. Felt very disjointed.

Rewatched Stranger Things season 2 and 3.

Spoiler alert: it's a good show.

Rewatched Stranger Things season 1. I don’t think anyone has ever acted better than Winona Ryder in this.

Watched Hawkeye season 1.

Hailee Steinfeld is the perfect casting for Kate Bishop. I really hope we get more.

Watched The World According to Jeff Goldblum season 2.

Watched One of Us is Lying season 1.

Not that impressed. Started off strong but didn't really go anywhere.

Watched Friends season 1-10.

Watched After Life season 3.

Watched Superstore season 6.

Watched Schitt's Creek season 1-6.

Watched Tiger King season 2.

Watched Squid Game.

Watched Grey's Anatomy season 1-17.

Watched Sex Education season 1-3.

Watched The Inbetweeners season 1-3.

Watched Grey's Anatomy season 17.

Watched Ted Lasso.

Watched The Alienist season 1-2.

Watched Loki.

Watched Clarkson's Farm season 1.

This was very good and Clarkson actually seemed like a normal person for once.

Watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7.

5 minutes of Loki is better than the entirety of Falcon and the Winter Soldier

The singing episode of Grey’s Anatomy is the most torturous 45 minutes of TV I’ve ever watched.

Watched Falcon and the Winter Soldier season 1.

This was really disappointing.

Watched The Boys.

Watched Superstore season 1-5.

Somehow I hadn't even heard of this until recently but it is hilarious.

Watched James May: Our Man In Japan.

Watched James May: Oh Cook! season 1.

Watched Timeless.

I enjoyed this enough to watch the two seasons but it really could have done with better writers. There was so little history actually changing that they missed some opportunities to make it feel like there was some actual danger of things going wrong. The last 4-5 episodes were really good.

Watched The Purge season 1-2.

Watched The Queen's Gambit.

Gave up after 3 episodes. The set design is great though.

Don’t bother watching The Vanishing at The Cecil Hotel unless you’re really into listening to conspiracy theorist’s arguments for the sake of “balance”.

Watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 1-6.

Watched The Grand Tour - A Massive Hunt.

Watched Better Call Saul season 4-5.

Watched Gavin & Stacey.

Watched Lost season 1-6.

I really enjoyed watching this 10 years on from the finale. My only complaint is the last season felt a little bit rushed.

Watched The Crown season 4.

The way everyone is able to navigate the island with ease in Lost is inexplicable.

Watched Schitt's Creek season 1-6.

Watched Ted Lasso season 1.

Best show of the year by far.

Watched Des.

Not enough David Tennant. Also not enough plot.

Watched Love is Blind season 1.

This is the pinnacle of garbage reality TV and I couldn't stop watching.

Watched For All Mankind season 1.

Watched Scrubs season 1-9.

We watched season 9 this time; it's not as bad as I'd remembered. If this had been done completely separately as a show, I think it might have been received better. Eliza Coupe is hilarious.

Watched American Crime Story - The People v. O. J. Simpson.

Watched High Score.

They found some pretty interesting people for this to interview, not all the usual suspects (although some are there of course like John Romero).

Watched My Name Is Earl season 1-4.

Such a shame this got cancelled when it did, it was a great show.

Watched Arrowverse season 2019-2020.

Watched Prison Break season 1-2.

No point in going past season 2.

Watched The Simpsons season 19.

Watched After Life season 1.

Watched After Life season 2.

Watched After Life season 2.

Watched The Simpsons season 18.

Watched The Simpsons season 17.

Watched The Simpsons season 16.

I think this is where it started going downhill.

Watched The Simpsons season 30.

Same as season 29, a mixed bag and lots of callbacks.

Watched A Parks and Recreation Special.


Watched The Imagineering Story season 1.

That fucking Spider-Man robot, wow.

Watched The Simpsons season 29.

A few good episodes but nothing amazing. A lot of "remember when we were good" callbacks.

Watched The Stranger season 1.

Hannah John-Kamen needs to be in everything.

Watched The Morning Show season 1.

Very good

My mum swooping in with the Tiger King hot takes

Watched The World According to Jeff Goldblum season 1.

I think this could do with the episodes being maybe 15 minutes longer as they're quite shallow right now but it's saved by how weird and fascinated by everything that Jeff Goldblum is.

Watched Gotham season 4-5.

I'm amazed at the restraint the writers had to not put Batman in this until the final episode (which was weird but whatever).

Watched Friends season 1-10.

Watched The Good Place season 4.

Watched Blackadder Goes Forth season 4.

This is such a good series.

Watched Living with Yourself season 1.

Paul Rudd is a treasure (and possibly immortal).

Watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6.

Watched Gavin & Stacey.


Watched Parks and Recreation season 1-7.

Watched For All Mankind season 1.

Watched Watchmen season 1.


Watched Russian Doll season 1.

Not good enough that I'd watch it again, but very enjoyable.

Watched The Crown season 3.

Watched Scrubs season 1-8.

Watched The Big Bang Theory season 12.

Watched Young Sheldon season 2.

Watched 13 Reasons Why season 3.

They should stop now. Fun season, but totally lost the spark they had in the last two seasons.

Watched Orange Is the New Black season 7.

Watched The Confession Tapes season 2.

Watched Stranger Things season 3.

Robin is the best.

Watched The Office season 1-9.

I don't know how to feel about this. On the one hand there are some really funny moments. On the other, I hate every single character in the show. But I still watched it all so I don't know what that says.

Watched Marvel's Jessica Jones season 3.

Not the strongest season but I'm still very sad it's over.

Watched Arrowverse season 2018-2019.

Watched The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

It was interesting to get a better sense of the timeline and see some of the things that the police just never investigated.

Watched After Life season 1.

This is what happens when Ricky Gervais stops being an arrogant dick for 20 minutes. Loved it.

Watched The Good Place season 3.

Watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 5.

This show keeps getting better.

Watched Futurama season 1-7.

Watched House of Cards season 5.

They did pretty well with what they had to work with.

The more I watch of The Office (US) the more angry I get about how shitty every single person in it is.

Watched The IT Crowd.

The whole show is a masterpiece.

Watched Young Sheldon season 1.

This is surprisingly good, the writing is excellent. Reagan Revord is a ridiculously good actress.

Watched Big Bang Theory season 11.

Watched 30 Rock season 1-7.

The final scene is perfection.

Watched Making a Murderer season 2.

Kathleen Zellner is amazing to watch, what a badass.

Watched American Vandal season 2.


Watched The Staircase season 1.

I came away from this convinced he didn't kill his wife, until I watched the Forensic Files episode (C2E36) on the case and now I have no idea.

Watched Orange is the New Black season 6.

Watched Better Call Saul season 1-3.

I just assumed this'd be another Breaking Bad but it's very different.

Watched Wynonna Earp season 1-2.

Season 1 is excellent, first half of season 2 took a nose dive until they found a way to bring Bobo back.

Watched Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

These are so much fun to watch, especially the Obama episode.

Watched Arrowverse season 2017-2018.

Watched Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 season 1-2.

It is what it is. I enjoyed most of it.

Watched Blindspot season 3.

Watched The Crown season 1-2.

I really enjoyed this although I take some issue with the way they present fictitious storylines as fact.

Watched 13 Reasons Why season 2.

Even more so than season 1, you should really consider if you're in the right frame of mind to watch a show like this. The last episode destroyed me.

Who decided to call the Dre/Iovine documentary “The Defiant Ones” and not “Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them”?

Watched The Returned season 1.

I hate every character. I hate the story. I hate it so much.

Watched Parks and Recreation season 1-7.

"Yes, we're gonna get a dish rack, and shower curtains, and a cutting board, but if you think for one second that I'm not also gonna get that marshmallow shooter so I can shoot you in the face with marshmallows when you're asleep, then you're the dumbest woman I know."

Andy Dwyer, Season 3, Episode 11

"Jogging is the worst. I know it keeps you healthy, but god, at what cost?"

Anne Perkins, Season 4, Episode 7

Watched Mindhunter season 1.

Very good except the last two episodes where there seemed to be no real consequence to anything that happened.

Watched The Office (US) season 1.

This is much more enjoyable than the UK version.

Watched The Office (US) season 1, Episode 1.

This was a strange experience because the script is almost identical to the UK version but I can see how the characters are completely different already.

Watched Jessica Jones season 2.

Another excellent season.

David Tennant's cameo was a nice surprise.

Watched Jessica Jones season 1.

Jessica Jones and the rest of the cast are some of the most interesting and deep of the MCU. I had to rewatch this before Thursday in preparation for season 2.

Watched The Big Bang Theory season 1-10.

For all it's problems, I still really enjoy this.

Watched The Office (UK) season 1-2.

This is as awkward to watch as ever but I still enjoy it. Two seasons is enough though.

Watched The Good Place season S2E08-12.

Watched The Good Place season 1, 2 up to E07.

Kristen Bell is a treasure.

Watched Chuck season 1-5.

Even with the excessive Subway product placement, I still love this show.

Watched Beyond Stranger Things.


Watched My Name is Earl season 1-4.

This really deserves a few more episodes, or a season, to complete the story.

Watched Stranger Things 2 season 2.

Watched Friends season 1-10.

My two month Twitter thread:

Rachel should have dumped Ross's jealous ass as soon as the Mark thing started. Urgh.

This tweet brought to you by 1997.

That thread was right, Ross is a complete tool.

Ross is making me so angry. I wanna punch his stupid face.

"Maybe we should take a break"


Hmm. I don't think they were on a break.

Wait, no. Rachel says they were broken up.

Oh wow Ross got a laserdisc player.

"I'll get my own dollhouse with blackjack and hookers"

Phoebe did it first.

Found my HD rips. No more 4:3 Friends for me.


Only now, because it's in HD, have I realised Kathy isn't played by Amanda Peet. My whole life is a lie.

I can't believe he said Rachel's name instead of Emily.

The way they try and get the sofa up the stairs is ridiculous.

noodle soup

So much fragile masculinity in "The One with Ross' Teeth"

Why didn't Ross just say "oh I fucked up my teeth lol". That would have fixed everything

I would have eaten Rachel's beef trifle.

NOT a euphemism

Richard is terrible. He shouldn’t have told Monica he still loved her.

“It’s just good sense to backup your backup”

Phoebe was ahead of her time.

Joey and Rachel should have ended up together.

Nope. Not finished yet.

👏 Paul Rudd 👏

Paul Rudd has all the best lines in season 10.

Oh no not Mark again.

Ross is awful but I still don’t think I’m emotionally ready for the last episode.

Aaaand finished. Thanks for playing.

Watched American Vandal season 1.

A perfect TV show.

Watched Defenders season 1.

Not great. Iron Fist needs to be killed off as soon as possible.

Watched Between season 1.

Terrible acting in the first season. Interesting premise but completely ignores some key points of the plot (there was a tiger that no one spoke about‽).

Watched Gotham season 3.

Watched The Keepers.

Interesting, but ultimately leads nowhere.

Watched Big Bang Theory season 10.

Watched House of Cards season 5.

Watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 4.

Watched Agents of SHIELD season 4.

Slow start but gets really good after the first few episodes.

Watched Orange is the New Black season 5.

Watched Prison Break season 5.

Pretty good but it felt like a supercut of season one and two.

Watched Blindspot season 1-2.

Watched Arrowverse season 2016-2017.

Watched Sense8 season 2.

A mostly boring season scattered with interesting fight scenes and a dissapointing finale.

Watched The OA season 1.

A self indulgent 8 hour crapfest. I don't recommend anyone watch this.

Watched 13 Reasons Why season 1.

Holy shit. This broke me.

Watched Legends of Tomorrow season 1.

Doesn't get interesting until the last four episodes, although I did enjoy the crossovers.

Watched Iron Fist season 1.

Not completely terrible, but definitely the worst of the Netflix-Marvel shows.

When are Netflix gunna bring back Bernard's Watch? It's obviously the best show.

Watched Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special.

Not the worst way to spend an hour.

Watched Futurama season 1-7.

This should never have been cancelled. Such an amazing show.

Watched Westworld season 1.

This is basically a perfect show.

Watched Luke Cage season 1.

Another amazing Netflix Marvel show. The soundtrack is perfect.

Guys, Stranger Things is really good.

Someone should have said something.
