    I watched all rise on cbs last night, episode from Monday night. I wasn’t super excited about this show when I watched the pilot but have grown to really like it. It’s well done and the cast is great.

    This week I bingewatched "You", a 10-episode series that gives another twist to the "Dexter" scenario, this time with a young librarian who falls in love (aka gets obsessed with) an aspiring writer in N.Y.C. It´s one of the most addictive shows I´ve seen this year, and to my surprise, it has been renewed for a second season. The surprise comes from the fact that, well, the main character is a

    .

    The actor who plays him is Penn Badgley, one of the "Gossip Girl" stars, who does an AMAZING work here, up to what Michael C. Hall did on "Dexter". There are a lot of original elements in this, but to be honest, it follows the scenario of "misfit guy who lives in a world full of people who deserve what they´re going to get..." The scripts are great and every actor has been perfectly cast, but the success of the series belongs to Badgley, undoubtedly, who bears a little resemblance to James Franco (which is addressed in one of the episodes).

    I´ve finally finished "Mosaic" and I´m watching "Condor". Nothing new under the sun, sorry to say, despite (as usually wasted) Sharon Stone in the former...

    I randomly clicked on a YouTube upload of one of the Ruth Rendell Mysteries. It had a Tales Of The Unexpected ending which I found a bit underwhelming considering the length of the episode.
    But it was well-produced and the actors did a good job with it.

    I just bingewatched "Incorporated", a SyFy limited series (VERY limited, because it´s been canceled already!) about a near future when big companies control an apocalyptic world (what else?) just like in all the movie sagas that have been made in the last decade and the TV shows that have been made and canceled lately.

    It´s a Ben Affleck-Matt Damon production, which sort of makes me think if it´s a labor of (mutual) love for each other, since the show looks quite gay. The main star is Sean Teale, the cutie from "Skins" and "Reign", who is wearing here more makeup than all his female co-stars. Hey the guy looks megahot, why do they have to make him look like a Valentino top model when he is a top executive in the middle of Distopia?

    More gay subtext: lots of futuristic boxing fights between the Latinxxxxx co-star and a lot of wrestlers. I honestly fell asleep in those scenes and didn´t get invested in the subplot. Then we have Julia Ormond, who steals every scene she is in, and plays a megabeech from the future whose daughter is married to the protagonist. Kudos to Ormond for not turning to plastic surgery and not even demand a special treatment for photographing her or dressing her. She is a bit overweighted and beautiful and powerful and I wonder why she isn´t where she belongs...

    The supporting cast is top notch: Dennis Haysbert, Mark Moses, David Hewlett (not movie stars but they have a respectable TV past!) and there is also HELO from Battlestar Galactica: Tahmoh Penikett (I had to google his name...), not even one day older than back then.

    The problem with this: the script is as muddled as it can be. There is the present timeline, then the flashback timeline, the outside timeline, the alternate timeline...and at the end, you don´t really care about the cutie with all that makeup.

    The FX are ok, especially those little screens everybody thinks we´ll have in the future...and the city design is quite impressive, including the offices of the corporation. But it´s not enough. Too many people die, some resurrect, others reincarnate (sort of), and Sean Teale doesn´t wink once in the whole series. I wonder what the Affleck-Damon "couple" saw in this and why it didn´t really work...If you want something that doesn´t demand too much attention and like the genre, it might do for you. See the trailer below...
