Just binge watched Santa Clarita Diet this past week. Hilarious show, can't wait for season 3.

That show is so good. I feel like it doesn’t get enough recognition. Neither does Olyphant. He’s so hilarious in it.

On your guys' recc'n, I fired up S1E1 last night for mrs.jingle and I.  Her response ... "You have some fucked up friends on DTF".
I think Jingle is right as rain

Started a full rewatch of Game of Thrones, I've calculated that I can watch a season every other week and still have some time to spare before April 14th.

Started yesterday to watch the latest season of American Horror Story, Apocalpyse.

Recently seen Jack Ryan (very cool!) and The Terror (not my thing, I realize the great care for detail and cinematography behind it but I couldn't get into the story).

Planning to see ASAP the final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

There’s no way it took her that long to figure that out  :lol     She just finally came out and said it to you....

Finished Ozark - Seasons 1 & 2.  That is a fantastic show!

Now watching The Punisher, Season 2.  Also my weekly shows (Gotham, MacGyver, Law & Order SVU).   I don't have the time or energy to really watch anything else right now.

I'm on Season 5. Probably start it up this week. This re-watch has been awesome! I had only seen the episodes (1) time each prior to the re-watch so seeing them all again and having that familiarity with the characters....really, that whole 'world'.....made watching it again SO much more enjoyable. I picked up on so much that I may have not heard (understood) or overlooked before.


Recently seen Jack Ryan (very cool!) and The Terror (not my thing, I realize the great care for detail and cinematography behind it but I couldn't get into the story).

Jack Ryan was awesome!! Can't wait for a Second season of that!!!

And I totally get your' sentiment on the TERROR. I actually enjoyed it.....but, it's a tough watch if you're not really 'in' to it. Really well done but you either like it or you don't. Not a lot of wiggle room with that show.

I'm rewatching The Shield at the moment, it's been long enough that I don't remember everything that happens. Still one of my favourite shows, just below my top tier of The Wire, The Sopranos, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.

I've also been watching the US version of The Office. I never watched the UK version as I wasn't really a fan of Gervais, but when the US series appeared on Prime I gave it a go and I really like it. Pam is just adorable  :D

Wife and I have been watching "Good Eats: Reloaded" in anticipation for the new Good Eats episodes; have a lot of love and respect for AB as he changed our lives!  I fell in love with the kitchen mostly because of Good Eats... doesn't hurt that I've met Alton a few times and he really is about as nice a guy as you'll find anywhere.

"Spaced"... honestly, we watch through these two short seasons of perfection about every three months or so; and we quote the show constantly.  It's a good foil to Seinfeld (which is our other standby).  We just never get tired of them! "... why did Brian paint his ass blue the other week?"  :lol

I ashamed to say that I've watched one UNC game this season and I haven't watched VT at all...

Now with Twitler taking a high end steak of this caliber and insulting the cow that died for it by having it well done just shows zero respect for the product, which falls right in line with the amount of respect he shows for pretty much everything else.- Lonestar

At Ep9 now, it's quite good. Quirky, and it doesn't take itself too seriously, yet still manages to carry a serious story that keeps drawing me in. Great characters as well, all of them really well cast.

I LOVED this show all the way. Maybe some cheese here and there, but I kept watching, and that ending...must be S2. :tup

Currently watching "The First" on Prime. It SHOULD be great, due to the subject matter, but it's slowly creeping in some mainstream soap-opera drama crap. Of course, the standout performance is Sean Penn.

That one is on HULU. I enjoyed it, but it kinda went nowhere.

So I watched e01 yesterday and when everyone started to dance in the house I wondered if this was a show for me. I did cringe a few times by the characters, I mean you have the outcast, the rebel, the drug addict, the good guy and so. I'm not sure where i'm going with that but yea.

Eitherway, should I continue anyway? Maybe it gets better?

Finished Umbrella Academy.


I really liked it. Felt like a weird mix between X-Men and Royal Tennebaums.


Some meh moments, especially since (spoilers) time travel is involved but I think overall it was really strong. Hoping for a 2nd season.

Just rattled off the first (4) episodes of The Umbrella Academy. Really digging it.  :tup

**edit**
I'm only (4) in but I think from get go it was obvious that 'V' does have some sort of ability.....probably something along the lines of it's SO powerful that the Father made the choice to suppress it with medication and convince her that she's 'ordinary'. I'm thinking the 'boyfriend' is one of the other babies born that the dad didn't buy....and he's actually just there to A) Help her discover her power or B) Take her out because he knows how powerful she is.

I've watched the first four episodes and am not sure if I will continue this. It surely has it's moments but it has a lot of boring scenes as well, and I don't really like the characters that much. Does it get a lot better after episode 4, or is it just not the show for me?

I just finished watching the new batch of Arrested Development episodes. They are amazing, and completely different from any other season.

I created a thread about it - in case anyone else wants to talk about the episodes.

I've finally forced myself to watch Fringe. I tried years ago and gave up around episode 8 or so. I made it into season 2 this time around, and I'm liking it a bit more.

Season 2 was fantastic as far as I recall.

Just don't bother with Season 5, call it a day after the fourth.

I've started watching Russian Doll and The Night Manager.

TNM is awesome!!! watched the first episode only but holy fuck what a promising start.

finished it up over the weekend. I thought it was alright, nothing groundbreaking. I think anyone who has watched a lot of shows/series etc. probably was like me and had the gist of the season and what was going to happen figured out early on. Still, it was a fun watch.

I agree about Diego....easily the most annoying character on the show. Curious to see where they take it in season two.

You nailed it. As a huge X-Men fan, I knew pretty early on what/who the endgame/baddy would end up being as it closely mirrors a popular story there so I wasn't surprised at all. Looking forward to the finish tonight.

And the way they presented ‘V’ as this meek, ‘ordinary’ character from the get go and how much they tried to drive that home in the first few episodes really screamed that she was going to end up being RN most powerful out of all of them.

What I’m curious about is the other babies that he wasn’t able to ‘buy’ as his kids? Or the explanation of how/why those women spontaneously had kids in the first place? They kind of just left that out of this season.
