Stranger Things season 3, I'm kind of a sucker for it to begin with.
I finished watching it last night, I think it showed a lot of limitations on how far they are going to be able to carry that story though, and the last episode had some part's that I really dont think fit well with the kind of show it is, im sure people that have seen it all already will know the part I am on about. It was good, I enjoyed it but the pacing of the story felt really rushed compared to the first 2 seasons.

I think there’s no season 4 coming, maybe spin offs or year zeros.

I read when Santa Clarita Diet was canceled that Netflix's magical season number is 3. After the third season, there is apparently a viewer dropoff substantial enough that Netflix tends to not want to continue investing in a show. My own totally unscientific anecdotal observation is that 4 seasons tends to be that sweet spot.

Ain't no way Netflix is going to let go of the only show of theirs anyone gives the remotest shit about, so it'll be interesting to see where it all goes from here. If I was a betting man, I'd put money on a fourth season.

The 4th season requires an interval long enough and a deep study of the feedback and behavior of viewers.
House of Cards for example, is actually a remake of a British original, however the Netflix guys made a careful study and a data research before creating it. They found out that the US fans of the British original liked Kevin Spacey for instance, and that they binged downloaded episodes, rather than wait for aired ones. I think this is what differentiates Netflix from a regular network. They use data in order to create the content, and not just in order to market and distribute it. So I don't believe that Netflix would like to see a winding down of viewers in a gradual process, but rather hit the fans with a surprise where they least expect it, which is why I think season 4 would either be a spinoff, a 90's leap in time into the future, or a year zero.

We'll see. Hits often break analytics. The Duffer Brothers have stated that they're aiming for four or five seasons, and nothing I've read about their plans hints at any sort of narrative change-up mid-run, especially one that would cut out characters that are now legitimate cultural phenomena, and primary reasons for people to keep watching. It's clear that people are still not tired of this particular story, and if there's more of this story to tell, then I think it would not just be an artistically bad decision, but also a financially bad decision for Netflix to step on that.

But again, we'll see. I expect the buzz about what's going to happen next will really ramp up with Comic Con next week (the timing of the 3rd season premiere is absolutely no coincidence there.) I'm sure they already have the numbers they need to decide whether they'll be giving more money to the show, though. It seems a lot more like the question is not "will there be a fourth season," but rather, "is there going to be a fifth season?"

At the whim of the wind
Harlots I need to get back to, watched the first couple too close to other period pieces and they started to blend.

Finished "Good Omens" - Amazon show, with The Dark Lord David Tennant and some others. Michael Sheen is a match for him on the screen and their scenes are a delight. The rest of the cast - let's just say they acted to their ability. Even Frances McDormand as the narrator was lacking. I imagined Neil reading those same lines and it worked - in his voice (literary voice and narrative) where Frances seemed to have been given one read through without notes.* Neil has a patter to his writing, miss it and it doesn't work the same. Michael McKean is another wasted talent like McDormand. So many English actors that could have played the same role better without the shifting accent. The kids were a waste/filler screen time. Quirky English countryside fixed in time comes and goes with the overall direction. It's like the child of two production companies: one had quality sets and costuming that shot the actors with lines, one that followed some random kids around on bikes and did after school special level FX.

You can do better, Amazon. Set up for a S2 so hopefully they will. They did the same thing they did with "Jack Ryan" - solid starting episodes followed by a rushed product. *Rush our boxes to our doors, take more time to edit.

That said, I enjoyed it and want to see more - done with more care.

In an attempt to make more use of all the entertainment services I subscribe to, I've started watching some new things. I'm now a couple episodes into the first season of True Detective, and I can definitely see why it was so hyped. Matthew McConaughey is pretty damned amazing in it. I also started Silicon Valley, for a lighter show.

Good stuff so far, but I'm not too deep into either one.
