 The lack of suffering and torture on Kanan's part was rather confusing after the last 2 season finales.  But I guess "had your eyes melted by a laser sword" IS a little hard to top without actually killing him off.  (Though I was concerned that that was coming, given how little there's been of him in recent episodes.)

I like how Thrawn has been so focused on Hera as the true threat and target that everyone else is just...irrelevant to minor in his mind.  Even his say to kill the Jedi first came across more as "that distraction is more likely to be an issue" that actually regarding Kanan himself a threat.  Sadly, I have a hunch that next season, he's going to be focused on wiping out Clan Wren, and that that'll be what gets  Sabine back on the ghost.


For other Spring TV shows:  Feud, about the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, is very good.  I'm still suspicious of Ryan Murphy every step of the way, but given that leads and the subject matter, he probably couldn't get away with much in the way of his usual antics.  I hope both Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange  get best actress noms.

Into the Badlands had, IMO, and excellent return.  It was mostly setup for the season, but unlike most shows that skip a large amount of time between seasons and have everyone positioned drastically differently than the first season, I can't actually complain about where they seem to be going with anyone.  I have concerned for a couple characters in regards to their fates, yes, but not with what the shows is currently doing with them.  We caught up with everyone from season 1 but Waldo and Lydia.  Based on previews for the season, I'm not worried about Waldo, but I am a bit worried about Lydia.  My only complaint is that I don't care for Tilda and The Widow's new hairstyles, and that's pretty shallow  (Though Tilda's does suit the changes to her character and her current role, even if I'm not fond of it.)

The Tangled TV series is very cute and enjoyable, based on the TV movie and first episode, but I don't have a lot more to say about it than that so far, aside from that there's an excellent rejection of 100 years of toxic masculinity in the movie.  The Catch is still a very Shondaland show in both good and bad ways, but I like it.  Powerless is a delight but appears to already be on hiatus after 5 episodes.  Making History is a cute comedy about a time traveler who accidentally messes up the American Revolution, but it isn't holding my attention, so I might save it for a slow TV period.  Season 3 of Grace and Frankie has dropped, but I've only watched 2 episodes so far.  Season 2 of Underground is proving that you can improve on perfection.

I appear to have dropped both How to Get Away With Murder and Supergirl, something that I never would have thought possible in their previous seasons.  HHTGAWM sounds like the Terrible Decision they made in the mid-season finale was, indeed,a truly terrible decision that they didn't recover from, and Supergirl just...has largely ignored or sidelined most of what made season 1 good.  There are still good parts and I probably will catch up eventually, but it wont be soon.
