Welcome to the new look blog posts about my media consumption. I was finding it hard to keep up with posting everything all in one go, and I was finishing books, tv and films all at different times, so it didn’t make sense. This way I will post when I’m ready to queue something up.
So to start we have tv series I’m starting now. 🙂
Gotham – Season 5 (also known as Legend of the Dark Knight) is the fifth and final season of Gotham. It was renewed on May 13, 2018 and premiered on January 3, 2019 and concluded on April 25 that year. It received an Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series.
With Gotham on the brink of total anarchy and cut off from the outside world, only Jim Gordon, Bruce Wayne and a handful of heroes remain behind to retake the city. Inspired by the “No Man’s Land” arc from the comics, villains including Penguin, the Riddler, the Sirens and Jeremiah have taken claim on various regions of the city. Will order be restored, or will chaos reign in Gotham?
Battlestar Galactica Season 2 : is set in a distant star system, where a civilization of humans lives on a group of planets known as the Twelve Colonies. In the past, the Colonies had been at war with an android race of their own creation, known as the Cylons. With the unwitting help of a human scientist named Gaius Baltar, the Cylons launch a sudden sneak attack on the Colonies, laying waste to the planets and devastating their populations. Out of a population numbering in the billions, only approximately 50,000 humans survive, most of whom were aboard civilian ships that avoided destruction. Of all the Colonial Fleet, the eponymous Battlestar Galactica appears to be the only military capital ship that survived the attack. Under the leadership of Colonial Fleet officer Commander William “Bill” Adama (Olmos) and now-President Laura Roslin (McDonnell), the Galactica and its crew take up the task of leading the small fugitive fleet of survivors into space in search of a fabled thirteenth colony known as Earth.
