SFP-NOW TV REVIEWS SHOW: FEATURING Monarch: Legacy of Monsters & More

Ian, Marx, and Jeff discuss their continued enjoyment of Baldurs Gate 3 before getting into the TV reviews.

Welcome to our last episode of 2023. Recorded on the 1st of December. Ian, Marx, and Jeff discuss their continued enjoyment of Baldurs Gate 3 before getting into the TV review, which includes our thoughts on Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. 

On the television front. We start the episode with our thoughts on the new Apple Plus series Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which is a tie-in series to the 2014 Godzilla movie and dives into the origins of the mysterious corporation Monarch. Of course, this is a monster show so we use sound effects to rate it.

Then Ian quickly gives a plug for ‘For All Mankind’, which is the series that persuaded him to part with his money and sub to Apple Plus. This show is a fantastic alternate history of The US and Russian Space programs and asks a lot of great “What if” type of questions.

And finally to wrap up our thoughts on Apple Plus TV shows. Jeff and Marx discuss the mystery box series Silo, which is set in a dystopian future where humanity lives in a Silo, which has 144 levels.

Next up is The Marvels. Marx gives his thoughts on the movie but feels the film got a bit of a raw deal because we have had actors and writers strike and the film seems to have gained a lot of hate from certain parts of the fanbase that considers the movie to be too woke. Either way, Marx enjoyed the film and gave a few great thoughts on it.

After our discussion about The Marvels and the Marvel and DC movies. We move on to The Invincibles where Marx gives us a fairly well-rounded review of the second series thus far.

Our thoughts on the Doctor Who specials and the new Doctor is a topic we decided at the last minute to hold over for our first show of 2024, which will also feature our best and worst picks of 2023.

In the meantime. Enjoy this episode and have yourselves a very merry holiday season and a fantastic new year.
