I loved the show, took a couple episodes (first episode felt super kidd-ish) but i'm sad they canceled it already.

The Tomorrow War (2021)

Medium: Movie (Amazon)

Rating: 0.5/5 don't wait until tomorrow to ignore this trash

Reviewer: jericho

Reference(s): IMDB Listing || Trailer

This movie was going swimmingly when everything was just regular life in today's time. The second the "tomorrow" part started it went to shit. From that point on it was a series of overdone cliches from hundreds of Sci-Fi movies before it mixed in with cliches from hundreds of war movies. I think the blame is on the writers who wrote a series of scenes that relied on us forgetting about logic, continuity, and time travel. The comic relief? Not funny. The heart-warming moments? Not warming. This movie is trash.

The Watch (2020)

Medium: TV (BBC)

Rating: 4.4/5 worth the .. irreverent policing

Reviewer: jericho

This is not a show about superheroes. In fact, barely heroes at all but they find their way. The series is based on a world and characters created by Terry Pratchett, who I haven't read. The series was a little rough to get into not knowing anything about it and the characters were odd at first, then I appreciated them as over-the-top quirky weirdos that find their way together as they "police" the city. The casting is superior and each actor really embraces their role, bringing something special to their character. Season one offers a fun story that is wrapped up neatly at the end, of course with a teaser that it will return.

Debris S1 (2021)

Medium: TV (Peacock)

Rating: 2.5/5 potentially good show lost in all the pieces

Reviewer: jericho

Two episodes in and the show was interesting. I immediately formed ideas of what I thought would come later in the season but in one case they did it in the first episode. It set a great pace and suggested a promising show with some creativity. I could suspend disbelief on the whole alien technology thing but couldn't when it came to the "protocols" used to investigate alien debris. Then, about half way through the series, it began to spiral out of control with sub-plots and ideas that simply weren't compelling. Add to that an attempt to bring some kind of sexual tension between the two main characters that just wasn't there, and it's easy to understand why the show was canceled after one season.
