I happened to see an episode of this a bit ago, and I thought it seemed pretty good. Funny, I immediately thought that it reminded me of a supernatural soap opera in the same vein as True Blood... Then I googled it and saw it was based on books by Charlaine Harris lol

If you will, so will I

i used the long weekend to finally work my way through season 3 of fargo. i think they almost matched the first season in capturing the spirit & feel of the movie (i liked the 2nd season, but i did feel it lost a bit of that magic). my only real complaint would be the presence of skeptical jerky new chief of police, a really rote character who really added nothing, a cliched aberration in an otherwise unique, fresh show. 4.5/5.

Have you seen the first season of the X-Men TV show, Legion? It's by the creator of Fargo and has Aubrey Plaza in a supporting role. It's by far the quirkiest superhero TV series I've ever seen and much better than any of the X-Men movies.

i haven't watched it, though i have heard quite a few positive things about it. i just haven't followed any series for a long time, fargo & black mirror excluded - but i am probably going to look for a few shows to dive into during the winter months, and i'll definitely give it a chance now that you've given it your stamp of approval.

i was planning on leaving twin peaks until this winter as well, but i've been intrigued by all the chatter i've been seeing on twitter & elsewhere, so i think i'm going to start that this weekend.

Great show, although the plot about the mosnter/ alien doesn't do it for me, not just yet. But is early to say, is just the first season, let's wait 'till the second one.

I was saying the other day, that while I really liked season 1, I'm gonna need more back story or something about the "monster(s)", etc in the next season because so far, the explanation feels a bit cheap

If you will, so will I

Indeed, quite cheap.

i just wrapped up episode 8 of twin peaks. i think it's been an absolutely demented hoot so far, almost everything i hoped for, and i absolutely love it. i'd say it's definitely more inland empire-lynch than original tp-lynch, but i like, even prefer lynch in that style, so that's no problem. there have been a few moments that just didn't work for me - particulary michael cera's brando impersonation - but those have been few and far between. episode 8 in particular felt like an absolute leap into the unknown. it all may just be one big 'fuck you' from lynch, but i think t's the most exciting, thrilling 'fuck you' i've watched in a good length of time.

I'm at episode 17 of season 2... And yes, often I don't know WTF I'm watching (it does not get "better") but this should be about 9/10 for me in the end. Also, if someone spoils this for me in anyway... lol

When I'm telling people now about it, I often mentioned that scene in the coffee bar, the jazz song is playing and you're totally used to such music being used for the viewer to create a certain mood. Then one of the characters suddenly says "uh, I like that song" and starts to dance. WTF. lol

Not EvilAngel, but I just finished the first season, too. It is about a Chicago financial planner (Jason Bateman - really good performance) and his partner who launder money for a drug lord. Things go awry there, so Bateman moves himself and his family to Missouri to start a new business venture, and avoid the messiness in Chicago. Tension, crime, and drama ensue. I wanted to like it so much more than I actually did.

Season's 1 & 2 of Outlander. They've done an awesome job with this show. The books are fanastic too. And, I must say, there is no one hotter on tv at the moment than Sam Heughan who plays Jamie Fraser. love

The Crown, Downton Abbey, El Tiempo Entre Costuras, 3% and La Doña all those series are on Netflix and they are very good. Love them wholeheartedly.

i watched the four short adaptations of neil gaiman's 'likely stories' earlier this week (on shudder for anyone who subscribes to that service), and i liked it a fair bit, especially 'feeders & eaters.' i think all episodes really benefit from avoiding huge shock endings or fantastical twists. instead, they just seem to drift away, leaving the stories to linger with you.

Just finished Narcos Season 3......... Fantastic show. All 3 seasons as good as each other. I would highly recommend this show to those who have not seen it.

I just realized I spent the entire weekend watching Doc Martin. I did go to the Old Globe, for the first time I'm ashamed to say but it won't be the last gotta see Benny and Joon, and saw Hamlet, which I loved, a black guy played Hamlet, that was different. But my TV watching was limited to just watching the Doc Martin this whole weekend. I like the show. I think I needed a break from cities being blown up, grotesque deaths and excessive drama, I just need "regular" people just doing "regular" stuff that wasn't earth shattering. And I love the scenery of the show, I'm jealous I want to live there by the ocean.

White Gold (2017) which is on Netflix at the moment, set in 1983 its about these 3 salesmen in Essex who run a double window glazing scam. Its wickedly funny, raunchy and its the best thing Ed Westwick has done since Gossip Girl. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 popcorn

Actually, I don't really feel ready or even qualified to give this a rating, but if only for the feeling THAT LAST SCENE leaves you with: 10/10.

Last night finished watching Farang (3/5), before that Fortitude (season one was a 4/5 but season 2 was more like a 2.5/5)

I haven't really seen a TV show quite like this. The last couple of episodes are fucking poetry. 9.9/10

The entire second season is like poetry!

I just finished Hannibal and that show is pure visual art!

These 18 episodes have been so incredibly great - by far the most intelligent (and challenging) show on TV! What a ride!

I rate 7/10. There are some unintentionally funny moments. Like the fat woman in charge of the kitchen, with a strong american accent. Also, seeing multiple women running around in burkas, shouting about allah, is stupidly funny.

i finished twin peaks recently as well. all the way through the last 10 episodes, i hoped that we might get more of that episode 8 psychedelic leap into the unknown trippiness, but it was probably best left off the table, if only in the 'less is more' sense. that aside, i'd give it a 10 too, without hesitation, based on boldness & what i thought was an almost complete lack of compromise right through to the final moment.
