I'm also enjoying the hell out of Rabbit Hole.  Keifer Sutherland is so good when it comes to this type of show, and we get Charles Dance as well!

This show gets better and better every episode. It's been SO good.

We are also watching and enjoying Rabbit Hole.  Fun show.

I gave my wife the choice of watching either Rabbit Hole or The Night Agent and she picked the latter, both sound quite similar and are rated roughly the same on IMDB.  The only difference is The Night Agent is Netflix so all episodes got dumped on at once, whereas Rabbit Hole is weekly.  We are 2 episodes in so far and it's fine at the minute, nothing amazing but perfectly watchable.

I've been watching Suits, House, Sons of Anarchy, and Fringe. I watched the first couple of seasons of House but never finished it. The same goes for Sons and Fringe.

One of my personal favorite series was Six Feet Under on HBO. Highly recommended!!!!

Stick with Sons; there's a little lull in the season 3/4 range, but man do they finish strong.  House is uniformly excellent.

One of my favorite shows ever, and without question the greatest series finale in TV history, with the possible exception of MASH.

Agreed! The SFU finale was epic! I'm going to rewatch the series with my son.

I've heard with Sons there is quite a bit of religious symbolism, which always intrigues me.

House is one of my favorite television characters of all-time. He's up there with Hank Moody and Raymond Reddington.

I did this with my daughter awhile back and it was great.  I still think Season 1 is unsurpassed.  My favorite episode of the entire series will always be 'The Room.'

Maybe I should watch, I recall when I was younger my mother was obsessed with SFU.

It really is a great show cram. You'll probably be hooked after a few episodes. I'm curious now, please let me know what you think if you decide to watch it.

This show 'Silo' that is coming out on Apple TV looks pretty interesting. Will definitely be checking it out.

I really liked that book series, and am looking forward to the show.

Watched the first 2 episodes of Mrs. Davis. Quirky show that is right in my wheelhouse. Betty Gilpin is fantastic.

Finished up the second season of HBO's Perry Mason.  What a cool show.  If you aren't in on that, you're missing out.

One of my good friends and his wife just told me about this. I'm going to check it out.

Finished season 1 and 2, respectively, of Only Murders in the Building and What We Do in the Shadows.

Now I'm watching High Fidelity, Reservation Dogs and I started season 3 of The Mandalorian before finding out that apparently I had to watch The Book of Boba Fett first so I guess I'll have to switch.

Dream Team

Love and Death - Lizzie awesome as always. Plenty of . . . (Redacted)

Really enjoyed the first season, haven't gotten around to watching the second season yet. But it's definitely in the queue  :)

Currently, my wife and I are watching The Diplomat on Netflix - it's very, very good. Great acting all around.

First two episodes are out....watched them both last night. REALLY cool! Loved it! Were all the episodes available I'd have binged the entire thing last night. Interesting story, top notch cast....great feel and atmosphere to it all.

Couple of DisneyPlus hidden gems:

Reservoir dogs, about a gang of teen native americans living in Oklahoma and dreaming to get out, finished the first season, quite good!
High Fidelity, with Zoe Kravitz reprising a role that in a previous movie belonged to her mother, about life and love troubles of a vinyl record store owner, would have loved a second season however.

Now I finished The Book of Boba Fett so I could get back on season 3 of The Mandalorian, and I'm also on season 3 of What We Do in the Shadows and season 2 of Only Murders in the Building.

I started Mrs. Davis on Peacock.

Holy shit, that show is bonkers.  I like it a lot so far.

That's Reservation Dogs.  It's on Hulu in the US.

Watched the Season finale of 'Rabbit Hole'. Really good stuff and a well done show. I like that they could leave it as is and it'd be a perfect ending or they could also throw another one out there.

Agree, it is bonkers!

I've watched 2 episodes so far but really enjoying it.

Watched the first 3 episodes of 'Citadel' on Prime.  Considering the amount of money they have thrown at it - it's all rather average so far.
Finished up 'The Night Agent' on Netflix, decent enough show would probably watch another season if they make one.

The Realm

Citadel is ok, not great but watchable. It does feel like there isn't enough on the screen to justify the budget, it looks cheap to me.

I thought The Night Agent started well but quickly became very implausible and over the top. I wanted to stop watching it but I saw it through to the end.

They spent way to much time in the early episodes with the two quirky assassins (who acted like they were in a entirely different show).  Without wishing to go to far into spoiler land, they didn't really have much impact to warrant all that screentime and buildup.

Yes, agree. Just really didn't add anything to the show and the pay off also wasn't there. I also wasn't a fan of some of the acting in the show, one character in particular, but that could just be me.

Just finished season 1 of Beef on netflix. Enjoyed the show and based on the ending could be renewed, but you never know with Netflix.

Watching the Diplomat on Netflix.  Really enjoying the show.  Political drama with humor.  Stars Keri Russell(The Americans) and Rufus Sewell(The man in the high castle).
