Anyone watching Safe on Netflix?  I've caught the first two episodes and am liking it so far.  It took me a little while to accept a British accent from Michael C. Hall.   :laugh:

Am I totally missing a thread here on Handmaid's Tale? I did a search through the function and manually and couldn't find anything.


Just started the show on Sunday and I'm already on S2, goddamn what an outstanding show. It's very easy to see how it scooped up so many awards.

Just finished watching Gravity Falls Sunday. I may or may not have started it on Friday. It was probably one of the best shows I've seen so far.

I’m pretty sure there is a thread for it somewhere. Like 95% certain.

I haven’t seen the show yet, but it’s at the top of my priority list of shows to watch.

I just finished the first season of Dark on netflix. Definietly a show I can recommend if you like Stranger Things but to be clear the shows have pretty much nothing in common other than it share the same tone and feel I think. This show is more dark and gritty though.
This is a german production but it's on pair with any well produced american show. The characters are all excellent and well casted.
I'm excited for season 2!

I've just finished the second season of Six Feet Under. It's pretty good so far, but it hasn't blown me away or anything. I've always heard it has one of the best finalés of a TV series - hopefully knowing that in advance doesn't end up making it feel underwhelming.

I'm also about halfway through season 2 on a rewatch of Arrested Development, before I embark on the new season. Undecided whether I'll watch the recut of season 4 before starting the 5th - season 4 was really disappointing.

I'm also watching the current season of Taskmaster (UK version), a show which I discovered earlier this year and is hilarious.  :biggrin:

My giant list is a few pages back and still mostly relevant, minus shows that have ended or been cancelled.

I just binged Lost In Space on Netflix.

Once I found out that the amazing Phoebe Waller-Bridge was the showrunner and head of Killing Eve I started binging that tonight. 4 episodes in and it is just fabulous! I'll be finishing Season 01 this weekend as it's supposed to be something like 110-115 outside. Not leaving my house.

Now that 12 Monkeys has one night left I will start binging Season 04 soon. I want to watch the finale as soon as possible.

I will also soon be starting Season 02 of GLOW / Luke Cage / Handmaid's Tale as well.

Just too much good TV out there right now.

Just finished season 4 of Veep (damn how I missed this comedy) and season 2 of DaVinci's Demons (It's like McDonald: you go for the fun and the once in a while experience, not for the supreme level of it).

My next priorities will be Westworld 2, Lucifer 3 and I want to see Manhattan (show about the Atomic bomb preparations).

It has THE best series finale of any show ever.

Six Feet Under is one of my three favorite television dramas ever and I loved the first two seasons, but to each their own.  And while I loved it the first time through, I loved the show even more the second time I ran through it.

Except for Rico; I never liked him.  He was always a selfish, judgmental dick. 

Ruth, Claire and David are all awesome, though!

Watching Mr. Mercedes (Stephen King adaption) at the moment, halfway through. Pretty good so far. Casting is terrific. Also Luke Cage on Netflix and Marvel's Cloak  and Dagger.

So I've watched It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia for a long time but I've never sat and watched in chronological order so there are still several episodes from the early seasons I haven't seen. I haven't seen anything past season 6, though, except for CharDee MacDennis which I saw yesterday. That episode was hilarious, I got my biggest laugh when Frank got in the dog kennel and Dennis threw his drink on him. "Shut up dog!"

But the episode that had me nearly in tears laughing was "Dee's Dating A Retarded Person." I'd seen the music bits before on YouTube as part of a Dayman-Nightman compilation, but I'd never seen the parts with Dee and her boyfriend. I was howling when she was on the couch observing him, not sure if he was mentally retarded or not - the closeup of him eating popcorn laughing had me in stitches. "Oh shit baby dis yo crew?!"  LMAO. "Girl you more mixed up than a milkshake!"

Great show, love Fat Mac. Think I'll jump into season 7 tonight and go from there to catch up.

Saw the first episode. I'm intrigued enough to keep watching but I'm not completely sold yet.


'The Colony' on USA has been surprisingly good. It's near the end of it's third season and I've enjoyed it a lot.

Just started watching 12 Monkeys on Netflix. Pretty decent so far.

Eagerly awaiting Castle Rock though.

I think you’ll find this series quite enjoyable. One of the best finales of any series I’ve seen. Whole series really builds on itself in a good way.

Loved the book, but I wasn't thrilled about the first episode (it felt a bit boring), but it was clearly set up and I plan on watching the whole mini series.  I loved this book much more than Gone Girl so maybe my expectations are a bit high here though.

Also, I am watching the season of Big Brother.  Loved seeing Swaggy go home last night, he was too cocky for my liking.

Didn't read book so I don't know where it's going, but I actually liked 1st episode. Looking forward to see where it's headed.

I watched the first 2 seasons, but then missed when S3 was starting ... so I'm patiently waiting for it to hit Netflix.

They do a really good job of reinventing the show each season without trashing the storyline from the previous one. Season three might be the best one yet.

Good to hear that. I watched the first season on Netflix (UK) last year, and really liked it. It looks like S2 has just been made available, so I'll hopefully get stuck in to it soon.

I’d say that if you enjoyed the first season I see no reason why you wouldn’t enjoy the subsequent two seasons. As I mentioned....they’ve done a great job with the characters and the storyline.

I've been marathoning it the last several days and man there are some truly hilarious moments in every season. You should definitely give it a shot if you're in the mood for some really twisted, manic comedy sometime. The episodes Charlie Work, Reynolds vs. Reynolds: The Cereal Defense, and The Gang Gets Trapped are three that have topped my list of favorites. If you haven't seen it, try to find the scene where Mac tries to disprove the theory of evolution (from the Cereal Defense episode). It's great. I've almost caught up, just in time for season 13 to start.

Cowboy Bebop. Damn, this is a fantastic, very western-ish anime, deep characters, much jazz and blues music  :metal . Definitely recommended even if you don't like anime, this is some mature stuff.

Ergo Proxy. Very dark, futuristic anime, with unique mythology and setting. And a great electronic soundtrack  :metal

Taking a step back and looking at the big picture, TV is in a very interesting place right now.  Given all the different media and outlets, there are just SO MANY shows right now.  As has always been the case in recent history, the vast majority of it is trash.  But because there is so much out there, even after sifting through the trash, there is so much more good stuff that I would be interested in than there is time to watch it, even if I spent more time watching than I do now.  As it is, I feel like I still don't have time to get the more important things in life done.  That's kind of a long-winded way of saying that I don't watch a whole heck of a lot of things.  And if it isn't either something the whole family likes that we can watch together, or that my wife likes to watch so we can watch together when the kids are in bed or doing other things, it isn't likely to be viewed by me, even if it is something I would like.

True, the amount of content is staggering, especially when you go beyond just TV and consider original shows on the internet only.

Then expand that to even twitch and it's just insane that amount of new content there constantly is.

As far as shows that I can say I am currently into, the list looks something like:

"Regular network tv" shows:
-American Ninja Warrior:  Fun for the whole family.  When new seasons are out, we typically catch every episode, either live or recorded and watched after the fact.  It's a nice blend of sports and "reality tv." 
-Penn & Teller: Fool Us:  Another fun show we all like.  Whatever I may think of Penn's and Teller's personal beliefs and social activism, I have always really enjoyed their act. 
-NCIS:  My wife loves this show.  I don't love it, but I'll watch it with her sometimes.
-Blue Bloods:  This one started as one of hers, but I've kinda co-opted it.
-Agents of SHIELD:  I haven't watched this latest season, just because I fell behind immediately, and it came to Netflix kind of late.  I need to catch up.

Netflix-y binge-watch shows:
-Daredevil:  Late to the game, but really enjoyed seasons 1 and 2. 
-Stranger Things:  Late on this one as well, but now eagerly awaiting season 3.

I think that's probably about it, other than sports and the odd Food Network show every now and then.

I bought the Twin Peaks revival on Blu-Ray on Prime Day. I didn't finish it the first time around, not because I didn't like it because I certainly did. Life just got in the way and eventually I forgot what part I left off on......so I've started it again from the begining.

7 episodes down and next up is the polarizing episode 8
