Two episodes to go with Season 2 but have to say agree with Trebor that UA is an excellent series. As a family it's probably the one we binge the fastest.

Also just started Season 3 of The Expanse

My son recommends Money Heist by the way.

Wicked Science: Close Call. Toby dives in to help Elizabeth when the teachers come close to discovering her secret lab in the school, but the pair of them are so busy dodging them they're oblivious to just how close someone else is to discovering their shared secret - Jack. This is a really good episode, the best since the Fever one, with plenty of stuff going on for all the characters and some good tension and character stuff. Jack's ascension to antagonist continues, as by the end of the episode he's not just suspicious but downright obsessed. Elizabeth's accidental inference that she keeps pictures of Toby in her locker is both funny and kind of stalkerish , though Toby is really quite mean to her in this episode for very little reason. Aside from one snarky remark to Sasha, Elizabeth is actually being perfectly pleasant to everyone here, so it comes across as a bit out of line. And again, we have another ep where Elizabeth is not only not doing anything wrong, but again seems to be so much nicer than she was in season 1, even smirking and rolling her eyes indulgently at Garth and Verity's banter, when a season ago she'd have been yelling at them. Cut her some slack, Toby, jeez!

Well, STARGIRL has finished it's first season.
That was a great run. Really enjoyed the series.
The big worry now is that the series has now gone fully to the CW channel for season 2.

Finished Perry Mason, really enjoyed this. There people complaining it's not like the show, it not set in the 50s, it's too gritty this isn't the Perry Mason I know!

It's not supposed to be its based on the books which are a lot more gritty and it's set in the 30s and Perry is not a goody two shoes, which is all the better for me. A nice piece of slezy film noir.

Well, that's DOOM PATROL Season 2 finished now as well.
The show finished on Ep 9 instead of the 10 due to the shutdown. Left a fracking great cliffhanger.
No word on Season 3 yet as the show has not been renewed yet.
