Month in Media: March 2017 [#14]

Holy crap, in all but name this marks one year since my first MiM! Sure, there remain a couple of "in progress" holes in that year, but still I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Who knows, maybe I'll even feel galvanised to sort out the format some time before the second anniversary rolls around!?

TV

Terry Pratchett: Back in Black

tl;dr: A fitting tribute to an amazing man and author. If you're a fan of Discworld or anything Pratchett, do not miss this documentary.

Lucifer [Season 2]

tl;dr: A solid continuation from the first series, still oozing as much charm and charisma as ever. Dare I say... devilish good fun?!

Trevor Noah: Afraid of the Dark

tl;dr: Intelligent and hilarious comedy from a rising star.

Jessica Jones [Season 1]

tl;dr: A dark and depressing look at addiction, abuse and guilt wrapped up in a surprisingly entertaining superhero show. Astounding.

Rick and Morty [Season 1 & 2]

tl;dr: Brilliant, genre skewering wrapped up in an animated show that pulls some surprisingly intelligent punches. A slow start but well on the way to being a cult classic.

Daredevil [Season 2]

tl;dr: Still very enjoyable but fails to match the brilliance of the first season, with too much emphasis on heroes and not enough on humans.

Planet Earth II

tl;dr: At times a little derivative, with shameful US pandering, but the overall result is every bit as magical, stunning and jaw dropping as the original and a whole lot more intimate and mature.

Video Games

Pokémon Duel

tl;dr: Addictive and surprisingly complex take on the winning Pokémon formula. Will more than likely keep me coming back for many months.

Films

Logan

tl;dr: A mature, nuanced take on the beloved character. Jackman can retire from the role knowing that he finally did Wolverine right.
