We are in the same boat here. If you've seen Teen Titans Go! To The Movies there's a super fun bit in that where they have to sit and watch a trailer for a spin-off origins movie about Batman's utility belt. I feel sort of similarly about Pennyworth.I just find the entire concept of a series exclusively focusing on Batman’s butler completely ridiculous. I just don’t think there’s any getting around that for me.
The books were the same. Third book was more in line with the first. Not sure if the show follows suitAgree about Mr Mercedes. I know it’s Stephen King, but season 2 was just such a change from the first.
Just started season 3 which is supposed to be better and more like the first.
Truly excellent show that I’d watched under a previous trial but now nothing much else tickles my fancy. But I just signed up anyway since this 99p trial offer is so good. Will have a look at the suggestions and root around this weekend.Counterpart is for my money one of the best tv series ever made. Utterly fabulous. Highly relevant to our current viral times. Incredible drama.
You know I totally agree with you. Funny thing is most I know gave up on it early and called it a disappointment. Their loss.May not count as I believe it is on Amazon Prime but it is still a Starz Production... Black Sails is amazing. Pirates done right.
All I will say is that as with almost every show these days you have to give it a few episodes to really get into, then it just gets better and better.
I'd agree with this. I can see why some find the pace a little slow, but it's the best sci-fi since Man in the High Castle for me (arguable better, but I'm only 5 episodes into s1). It has added weight given the recent Covid outbreak. Brilliant.Counterpart is for my money one of the best tv series ever made. Utterly fabulous. Highly relevant to our current viral times.
