Fuck me, Peacemaker is great. No one is more surprised than me by that sentence. I didn’t care for Gunn’s Suicide Squad, and I love a great deal of his work. I felt like it punched down and missed the point in a lot of areas that didn’t involve Ratcatcher II or the delightful King Shark. I especially had no interest in continuing Peacemaker’s story. But I’m a Streaming Editor and it’s my job, (boo hoo, right?) so I did what I had to and god freaking damnit it is so goddamn good. The opening credits are hysterical. The commentary is as in-your-face as the people who need to hear it require it to be. Jennifer Holland is incredible. I am two episodes in and I cannot wait to fucking consume the rest of it. Point to you, James Gunn!
We recently watched the first couple episodes of Abbott Elementary, a show that I had kind of avoided but ended up enjoying a good deal. I was worried it was going to just make me sad. And it does! But it’s also hysterical, so…
I binged The Witcher, which I enjoyed way more than I thought I would, but I think we talked about that already. I hope Cranky Witch Mom takes over the continent and kills all the men that aren’t The Witchers and Jaskier. (Burn Butcher Burn is 98593582358375983758237589357 times better than Toss A Coin To Your Witcher. Good day.)
I have to watch Raised by Wolves for Work Reasons™. It didn’t seem like my thing, but I’m interested to see what it’s all about. Also on the eventual catch-up list is Wheel of Time and… well, a bunch of shows that have suddenly erased themselves from my mind. (This is why you need a series feature, Letterboxd.)
