What TV Series Are You Watching?

Recommended Posts

I finished Mr Robot late last week and loved it.  A complete mess-with-your-mind sort of drama.  Brilliant.

I also binge watched Stranger Things as I'd never seen it before.  Everyone I know was talking about it so I had to check it out.  A great series and a real throwback to the 80s.  A nod to Stephen King too so that earned extra points from me!

Started watching The Sonhttps://www.imdb.com/title/tt3839822/

It's a western drama following three generations of a family building an oil empire in Texas, starring Pierce Brosnan. Started out okay and looks quite promising. @Viva la FCB you might want to check this out.

Ive been looking for something else to watch. I should get a chance to dive in next week, cheers.

Geez everyone is watching mr robot now. I'd better get with the program. 

Good shout on stranger things. Really cool show and gives you massive 80's nostalgia in a way i hadn't felt since my first time watching Freaks and Geeks (essential viewing for anyone who hasn't seen it).

Has anybody watched '13 Reasons Why' yet? I've heard good things and is on my to-watch list. 

Currently I've got on the go:

Big Little Lies - only watched the first ep, but haven't gone back to it for a while

Billions

Chance - finishing off season 1

Legion - albeit season is done. I really enjoyed the first season, however fucking weird it got in the middle, and anything with Jemaine Clement gets my approval

Marvel's Iron Fist - finished it now, but largely pretty trash in all

Taboo (yet to start)

Walking Dead - I'm at least half a season behind, maybe more, when I get desperate I'll run head first into a wall, then maybe catch up

And to join in with The Leftovers chat earlier, I watched the first season and really struggled with the second and didn't get all the way through. To be honest, surprised I got through the first.

The Son keeps getting better and better, 4 episodes out now, good story, and Pierce Brosnan is quality.

Also, American Gods premiere is next Sunday!

Just rewatched Gilmore Girls, this time it was a binge and I caught so many things I didn't before.

Made the brutalising call over the weekend to subject myself to a full re-watch of Game of Thrones from the start of season one. 

Amazing how many little references now make sense now after being so much more familiar with the back stories and fan theories... so many little seeds being cleverly planted in the dialog even in the first episode. 

Top show.  And even better in those early seasons before it become obsessed with trying to constantly outdo itself and surpass the highs of previous seasons.

Started watching The Handmaid's Tale, an adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel. Very well done, just as frightening and depressing as the book.

I've just finished a French web-series called 'Le visiteur du futur'. It's a comedy about someone who travels back in time to stop future disasters. It's very funny, and the episodes are very short so if you have a few minutes spare check out the first few episodes and you might get hooked like I did.

I tried to get into mad men but just couldn't see the appeal.

Polished off the first episode over the weekend and im sort of in the same boat. Its interesting enough with the back story and flash backs to a young Eli being captured that i like where its going. Bit wishy washy on the first one it had some sleepy moments but ill keep watching i like where it seems to be going ^_^

I'm 5 episodes in, and it's brilliant! The pilot was a bit meh, but it's getting better and better with each episode!

I started watching it last year and honestly just had to switch it off after 20 minutes or so, it was just so fucking weird and pretentious with annoying sounds and strange camera work... I keep on hearing that it's really good now though, not sure if I should give it another go?

Season 2 if you get into it is some of the best tv you're going to see. I personally love it, I don't care if it's bat shit crazy. Kevin in the hotel and Christopher Eccleston's struggle to get Mary into Miracle are the best two episodes. As with lost I fear I'll still have questions when the next 5 hours are done but fuck it, it's brilliant at the time.

Cheers, I'll try to give it a go then... I loved Lost, and really thought the ending was good, also most of the question where answered anyway.

If you watch American Gods, let me know what you think xD

Yeah, I watched it all a few weeks back. It's very marmite - I enjoyed it but I know others that hated it. It's quite slow at times, and the issue of mental health can be a difficult one to portray but I think they did a good job with it and you certainly feel some connection with the characters. Certainly worth a watch

I will watch it but I'm waiting a few weeks so I can binge watch.

I'm watching the Affair to with the Mrs, can't recommend that highly enough for character drama.

I'll keep it on my list for now then. I feel it will be one of those shows where I need to watch pretty consistently until it's done, otherwise I'll lose interest. Much like I'm prone to do.

Yes definitely a good shout to build up a few episodes. First ep is properly bizarre, but intriguing. Ricky Whittle is a specimen.

Yeah, that's true, I watched it all in about 13 days, only 13 episodes so not too bad

anyone keeping up with The Trial: A Murder In The Family?

First episode was yesterday. A murder case has been created to get inside the life of the jury, as it were.

I've recorded it as am intrigued with the format. Hope to catch up with yesterday's and tonight's later on.

I've got too much on Sky to allow me to watch Netflix as well, which I'm a bit gutted with as there a number of shows I want to watch including House of Cards, Daredevil and Lucifer. My current go to shows are The Good Fight, Madam Secretary and Street Outlaws. Like a bit of Fast n' Loud when it's on as well.

Broadchurch was great and glad they stopped while it was still worth watching. Watched the first season of Mr Robot but stopped after the first three of the second series. Wasn't enjoying it at all. Was the same for Billions.

Now just waiting for The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones to return.

yeah i've got tons on record so my Netflix subscription is going to waste xD 

However that will change on May 30th when new series of House of Cards is out. I binge-watched the series' on there in about 2 weeks xD

The Trial... programme is very intriguing. My kind of programme because I love the psychology behind a court case and especially from a jury's point of view which this appears to focus on. I've always wanted to be on a jury as well.

I'm similar. I do seem to get drawn to shows that are based around lawyers, cases, etc.

Going off track for a bit but I've done jury service once and would love to do it again. Was fortunate enough to get called up to The Old Bailey. Nearly got sent home without getting on anything but eventually got put onto a jury then spent almost a month there. Really enjoyed it. As I'm only 24 :whistling:I've not got a lot of experience to call upon, but in hindsight I wish I had trained to be a barrister.
