Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Sam Wilson/Falcon and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier team up in a global adventure that tests their abilities -- and their patience.

Adequate, but with too much of the American make-believe racism; I won't be watching any more, if there is any more.

A miniseries told around the Soviet Chernobyl disaster.

A tense, decently-paced look at how communist lies spell disaster, and how communism once again cost tens of thousands and almost tens of millions of lives.

A highly-virulent weaponized virus breaks containment and wreaks havoc.

It starts strong then goes downhill into some odd religious stuff. Generally terrible later on. Worth watching if you're into this genre.

An experimental gate technique strands unlikely survivors on an ancient ship.

A fair show. That's pretty much all I can say about it, really. It has some significant presentation of humans being human, which is rare and special.

Orphan Black - (2013 show) image

An underclass punk, returning from a ten month flight from the country, happens upon a suicide that reveals that she is part of a larger picture.

The lead actor is particularly good, as is all the acting. The story is poor in a number of places, and it is particularly jarring to have literal-faggotry forced into it. I don't mind there happening to be gay characters, but when they're gay characters being gay because gayness yay gay gay as opposed to just being people who happen to be gay, it's so obvious and so insulting as to taint the whole fucking show.

I'll flag this as liked and lightly-recommended. It's really not all that awful, but it rubs me the wrong way. It's like girly science fiction drama-whatever.
