Just started Travelers on Netflix. A Canadian Sci-Fi show (they tend to be pretty good at those). Almost done with Season 01 and then onto Season 2. Season 03 is happening at some point. The lead is on some other show called Will and Grace and plays the Will character so he has to juggle both shows.

note: I love Will and Grace. Just trying to be funny. Had no idea Eric McCormack was Canadian!

My wife and I finished Lost in Space on Netflix this past Friday. Going in, I knew OF the original show, but never watched it. So other than knowing it was a show with a family who had a robot as a companion, I had no pre-conceived expectations. I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to another season. I'm not sure how it is received by the majority, but it was time well spent for me. :)

It was basically an unrelated show. You had the same character names and such, but beyond that there's virtually no similarity.

I liked the show, actually. Minus Dr. Smith. Really did not care for the that character, both the writing and the acting.

Jumping into The First on Hulu, series about the exploration of Mars with a Sean Penn led cast. If it deems itself worthy we can start a thread haha.

Not watching, but saw the ad for The Purge and it looks like some of the most disgusting garbage ever put on screen.

Jack Ryan was awesome...I haven't watched a show that intense since 24 was on tv, or at least Season 1 of Homeland.

The Haunting of Hill House (Netflix) is fantastic.  Daredevil Season 3 comes out this weekend.


Right now - back to seasonal tv with MacGyver, Walking Dead, and American Horror Story.  AHS has been really cool - it started slow, but once they began introducing characters from prior seasons, it has really become fun to watch again.

Final Space, a fun little sci-fi show. I never really watch animated shows but this looked fun and it was.

Knightfall - I really like this.  Sure, it's not Game of Thrones quality, but it's a cool little story about the holy grail and Templar knights.  Have a few minutes of the final episode left to finish tonight.  Looking forward to Mark Hamill in season 2!

Ploughed through Bodyguard on Netflix the other day. Pretty intense show, much more than I thought but it was good.

On your recommendation I started watching this last night. Thru 3 episodes so far and love it.

Homecoming with Julia Roberts on Netfix. Loved it. Only 10 episodes that are about 1/2 hour each. Really solid show.

Maniac with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill on Prime. Went thru it in 2 days. Not gonna be for everyone but found it very interesting

Bodyguard was awesome.  I haven't seen such tense moments on TV since 24 was on the air.

Cool, yea it was a good show and it's always nice when a show you don't have much expectation for turn out to be really great.

You reversed the services but yeah Homecoming was great. Quick 10 episode of 30 mins each went by fast. It's got the feels of Mr.Robot and was great. Slower paced and beautifully shot and edited. I'm a sucker for that kinda look and editing.
I have Maniac and Bodyguard on my list.

I tried with this one....but the quality of the production really got to me. It wasn’t bad....but in the eyes of ‘Vikings’ and ‘GOT’ and a handful of other shows out there.....it just didn’t compare.

Sure...I’m (we’re) spoiled with some great shows where the production is off the charts....but I couldn’t get past it on this show.

Was bored and browsing through amazon prime streaming and looked up "Hannibal" hoping to see the movie sequel.  Found something even better, the tv series.  Been binge watching as much as possible all weekend.  Never new this existed.

As an added bonus, I'm a Star Wars nerd, so seeing "Gaylen Erso" play the part of Hannibal Lecter is pretty cool haha.

Dude....the TV series Hannibal is awesome! Glad you found it. In my mind Mads mikkelsen IS Hannibal Lectar. He’s supplanted Anthony Hopkins with a far superior performance of the character.

After a few episodes I'd have to agree about him being THE character the best.  Of course the show has the advantage of being able to develop the character much more than a movie, but still...  He does a great job.  Looking forward to continuation of watching this show.

Hannibal  is a great show.

Last episode of Ray Donovan was awesome. This season is totally better than last.

Ray Donovan reached a new level this last episode which rivals the best 1 hour of tv I have ever seen since Breaking Bads best episode.

Mind blowing story, acting, an epic piece of film making

Watching Hannibal has been great.  Season two was difficult to watch at times, not because it was bad, but because it was difficult to accept what was happening.  My mind was blown by the end of the season.

Season 3 is a bit of a dragger.  I can't say I really care for it that much (I'm half way through), as it's dragging out a story that I'm not too into and any sense of relating to any characters is basically gone (everyone just seems like a zombie that lost their humanity after everything that's happened).  I'll still watch to the end, and overall still rave about and recommend this show.

I don't see much TV but just finished Bodyguard and enjoyed that.

A friend has recommended Ozark so that's up next.

I am currently watching Bodyguard and only 2 episodes and enjoy so far.

Ozark is a good show.

The last couple of months I've been slowly getting into Bojack Horseman.   The first half of the first season had a few laughs, but I was starting to get really sick of "funny humor about a complete narcissist" theme.   ....and then the whole theme of the show really shifted. 

I'm just starting Season 3, and I'm really into it.    Many moments where I've found myself with my jaw on the floor thinking, "I *did not* just see something that insightful in a show about an anthropomorphic horse!"
