I've revisited Ultraman over the holidays and found out Tsuburaya Productions made a web series on their youtube channel.
It's mainly Ultramen and monsters in front of green screens, and they brought back a lot of the ones from the pre-2000 shows which made my day.
There are also a couple complete episodes of the newer stuff.

Yeah I'm watching that, but I'm bummed to have missed Ultraman Z which was previously going out under that channel, which is the latest full series but filmed more in tribute to the style of the old series.

I like that they've reconnected in a way with the Showa Ultras. Haven't kept in touch with the shows since Mebius so I'm not familiar with Geed, Orb, X, etc. The latest Ultras with all their different forms is a little much for me, but should be great for selling action figures.

The Haunting Of Bly Manor (Netflix, eMule) Built on and expands on the famous gothic horror novel "The Turn Of The Screw". I liked it a lot. Like the original novel and the brilliant 1961 film "The Innocents" starring Deborah Kerr there's plenty of room for speculation about whether this is a ghost story or a psychological drama. It's long with many drawn out scenes. The production looks slightly cheap (filmed in B.C. instead of the U.K. where it plays). But the cast is great. Not up to "The Haunting Of Hill House", but similar in tone with some of the same cast.

Finished the last season of Vikings. I actually really liked the series finale, which was not a go-all-out fireworks explosion, but instead brought closure by alluding to the decline in their importance and influence, and their transition or assimilation.

Next up is The Expanse, season 5.

I remember watching the news reports about the hunt for him. While it was scary, it didn't scare me nearly as bad as The Zodiak and Charles Manson.

for me it was clifford olson, a child murderer in my area when i was a kid ... i literally worried about being grabbed on my way to school (alone, of course, through a forest, it was a different time)

I liked the way it was photographed, with a very slight sepia tone that makes it look your Grandmother's old, slightly faded Instamatic photos. It helps to put you in the era.

WandaVision (Disney+, eMule) Two episodes in and there's something going on. Clearly things aren't as they seem. Looks good.

Watched first episode of WandaVision, fell asleep during the second. Tedious, pointless. Constant laugh track runs throughout even though nothing is funny.

love wandavision so far ... awesome tv references, great performances, look forward to more

they really took a massive gamble with this one, and the reaction i'm seeing on twitter suggests a whole ton of people are baffled and/or hostile

Disenchantment season 3 (NETFLIX): just the ridiculous psychedelic escapism I needed to get through the last week!

The capture

British series. Good thriller. Nerds please suspend your disbelief about how technology works, focus on the characters.

The plots is based on framing a innocent man by manipulating video evidence.
