Just started into Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel. I had read the book ages ago and enjoyed it thoroughly, and so far the show is holding up as well.

Great, isn't it? the show goes on sooooo fast, but it's faithful and enjoyable. Have fun with it until the end!  :tup

Started watching Altered Carbon but it's slow going. Watched 3 episodes so far, and I really like it, but I'm finding it hard to find the time to truly sit down and watch or binge like I usually do.

Watched a couple of episodes of Mindhunter, same thing.

The only things still being made that I watch are Stranger Things, It's Always Sunny and Fargo. And God knows when we'll see a new season for any of those.

I used to watch The Walking Dead (the pet tiger was the straw that broke the camel's back for me) and Game of Thrones, and I guess I'll at least check out the first couple of episodes of True Detective season 3 to see if it can recover from the dumpster fire that was the second season.

Just finished rewatching Peep Show today too. I want to watch more Veep as I'm a big fan of what I've seen, but I'm not paying for Sky just to get that one show. Maybe when it finishes there'll be a nice box set for not too much

You should check out 'Back' - stars David Mitchell and Robert Webb (the actors from Peep Show) and is written by Simon Blackwell (who wrote for The Thick of It and VEEP with Ammando Iannucci).  There has only been 1 series (6 episodes) so far but it was really good.

Finished Fargo season 2 (awesome) and The End of the F'kin World (nice but I expected better).

I'm watching now Silicon Valley, season 4, and Mr. Robot, season 3. Both are absolutely great.

I'm planning to watch Marco Polo next, or The X Files' latest season.

With season 5 in production I figured I might as well finish watching seasons 3 & 4 of Luther

FLINT CITY on Netflix. Really good documentary that follows the Flint Michigan Police Department around for a year. They have 100 officers total to Serve a city of 100,000 plus people. It's a pretty crazy documentary and it's pretty raw. I highly recommend it.

The Prisoner. Despite being a prime time TV show from the 60s, it's quite original and pretty weird and interesting. Also began with Samurai Jack  :metal

Just watched the first season of a Canadian show called 'Slasher' - I'm a sucker for slasher/whodunit films and this series seemed right up my street..........it was OK, a bit long winded at 8 episodes and some character decisions were dubious to see the least.   Appariently there is a second season that is supposed to be better, but I don't have access to that yet in the UK.

I couldn't honest recommend it unless your a fan of the genre.

1. Archer

2. Westworld (so far, so good)

3. The wire (Maybe it was better back in 2002, but I'm kind of struggling to get through it)

4. Mad men- got 2 ish seasons in and lost interest

I'm watching Wild Wild Country on Netflix. It's a 6 part documentary about an Indian guru and his followers, in the 1980s, buying a huge chunk of land and setting up a commune in a sleepy retirement town in Oregon. They fall foul of the locals and end up trying to take over the town.

It's really fascinating. Some of the things that happen, you seriously could not make up.

I've given that new show on ABC called 'The Crossing' a look. Watched the first two episodes. Not completely sold on it yet which doesn't bode well for it. I'm gonna give it another episode or two to see if it improves at all but I kind of think it'll be cancelled anyway.

OK, just took advantage of the new Spotify/Hulu deal (12.99$/month), and now have a massive backlog of shows to watch. Here's the order I'm looking at...

Agent Carter
Lost in Space
Legion
Runaways

I've heard enough negative not to give Inhumans a shot, convince me otherwise...

Unless you're a hard core completionist who just has to know everything going on in the MCU, then there's no reason to ever watch Inhumans. Except for laughs maybe, and not in the good way.

I am watching Versailles and it really good. It follows Louis XIV of France as he builds the palace all the drama surrounding it. For anyone enjoys history, then this one is a must.

The Runaways surprised me, in a good way. Also, The Gifted, also an X-men  based mutant show, was really good.

Started Medici - Masters of Florence. I'm already hooked up by the atmosphere, the score (Love the opening Skin song) and the characters  :metal and being italian I'm not even annoyed by the americanized pronunciation of italian names  :lol

There's also some crossover actors from Game of Thrones - when the guy who played Walder Frey meets with the guy who played Robb Stark to discuss a wedding I was like "OH GODS NOT AGAIN"  :lol

Im a few more episodes into Iron fist and it still isnt bad. Seems to be picking up.

Still probably going to be my least favorite of the Marvel Netflix shows so far but man this show got bashed way more than it should've. I will agree that the show has a pacing problem and some episodes could've been cut down to about 45 minutes instead of almost a full hour.

I agree that Iron Fist got way more hate than it deserved. Luke Cage was way worse.
