Television

They say TV will rot your brain. Mr. Hipster does his best to prove them right.

Emergence Season One

Emergence: Season 1

The things we do for love. Like watching an ABC series about a robot girl and her desire to be real. And, yes, Emergence is not much more than a sci-fi version of Pinocchio...
Servant

Servant: Season 1

This is my first foray into the Apple TV+ world. We bought a new Mac and they gave us a season for free. Quite frankly, I don't see much beyond Servant that even interests...
Treadstone

Treadstone: Season 1

I've never read a Bourne book in my life. But... I've seen the first Bourne Trilogy. Because I'd heard a lot of good things about them and I had a spare bunch of hours on...

Songland: Season 1

How many of these music reality shows have we watched? Well, there was American Idol. And then The Voice. And the worst of the worst, The X Factor. Oh shit, there was...
Mr. Robot Season 4

Mr. Robot: Season 4

This show, Mr. Robot, made a huge splash after its first season. As much as one can tell in this fractured media landscape in which we live. I mean, it's not as though...
Watchmen Season One

Watchmen: Season 1

You'd think the original comic book this show is based on was the fucking bible the way people protect it. Well, I know very little about the bible, and even less about...
Lodge 49 Season Two

Lodge 49: Season 2

Yes, I am one of the twelve people who watched this show. I put that in the past tense both because it happened in the past and because the show is already canceled...
Mindhunter Season 2

Mindhunter: Season 2

The first thing I want to thank the Mindhunter people for is getting rid of the girlfriend of the Holden Ford (Groff) character from Season One. Every scene with her was...
Succession Season 2

Succession: Season 2

Succession is a very 2019 kind of show. Rich assholes being rich assholes just because they're rich assholes. Are they the smartest? Nope. Are they sophisticated and...
Undone

Undone

I still find it weird that shows like Undone aren't a bigger deal. I mean, I know we're maybe still in the times of peak TV, but the field seems less crowded now than...
The Last Panthers

The Last Panthers

This series is not for the faint of heart. Especially if you're not into long episodes full of reading. Unless you speak French or Serbian, that is. The series also...
The Alienist

The Alienist

The Alienist was an insanely popular book. It was The Da Vinci Code before The Da Vinci Code. Back in 1994 there was not a human being on the planet who had not either...
Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies: Season 2

If there was ever a second season of television that didn't need to be made, Big Little Lies was it. It's a shame, really, as the cast is immaculate and the show...
