Humans, Season 1 - TV (Amazon Prime) - Now this was an AI-related show worth watching! Great atmosphere, great characters, great mystery. “Humanity is not a state; it’s a quality.” There is a Season 2, but where S1 ended was a great stopping point in itself. I decided to let this one sit with me for a while and then decide on buying S2 or not.

Dr. Strange - movie (Netflix) - What was that accent, Mr. Cumberbatch? Ugh. The “building folding” scenes made me feel a bit dizzy/nauseated but other than that this was fun. Not really a good movie but fun. Comic relief scenes were pleasantly goofy, including BC doing basically the “running man” dance. PS. Benjamin Bratt is still hot.

The Flash, Season 3 - TV (Netflix) - Still candy. Felicity is still my favorite character. Time travel + multiverse still doesn’t work from a logical perspective but the handwaving is fun to watch. This season has Draco plus Amber from House plus Blaine from Glee, so that’s a special joy.
Best quote: “I like Shark Week; I’m not a marine biologist.”

Silicon Valley, Season 4 - TV (HBO) - Watched this one week-by-week. The season closer was particularly great, with the twists being genuine surprises to me, delightfully so. Not out of nowhere, but “Oh yeah! That relates back to xyz in earlier eps! Awesome!” This is also a show that can push the reset button on characters in a way that makes sense, unlike other shows I can name *cough*House*cough*

Supergirl, episodes 1-9 of Season 1 - TV (Netflix) - Very much the cousin show of The Flash, to be expected since it’s all the same ‘verse. I like the positivity, the hope, and the emphasis on family -- the ways it can be helpful and a challenge. Two problems: 1) young-teen boy says Supergirl is his favorite superhero and Kara (Kara!) immediately says, “Oh do you think she’s pretty? Do you have a crush?” WTF, Supergirl! You should be encouraging boys to think of Supergirl as a hero/person first, not actively pushing them to primarily think/talk about their romantic attraction. Ugh. 2) Showrunners using James to tell Winn he should confess his romantic feelings to Kara when she has CLEARLY INDICATED she sees him as a friend period. That shit is not fucking cute. Especially when Alex has already mentioned “staying out of the friend zone” in connection to how Kara feels about James. No. Just no. Can we not do this, show? Please.

ETA: Supergirl, episode 10 - NO. NO NO NO. Winn says he is in love with Kara, she says how does this change our relationship, Winn says I don't know and then keeps pouting; Kara says to Alex afterward, "I screwed things up with Winn" ALEX DOESN'T CORRECT HER!!! DOESN'T POINT OUT THAT KARA DID NOTHING WRONG AT ALL!!! DOESN'T SAY THAT WINN'S FEELINGS ARE NOT KARA'S RESPONSIBILITY!!! UGH UGH UGH

Show, this is gross and despicable. Winn being in love with Kara when it's not mutual is fine; everybody on the show thinking it's Kara's job to take care of this issue is NOT FINE
