S4 of Lucifer on Netflix.  Such a fun, guilty pleasure.  Sort of like Ballers meets Hawaii Five-O.

S5 finished up on BBC America last night. It was a good 4 episodes. 

I'm halfway through Dark and it is awesome. The end of episode 4 had a great twist.

Watched the "Shut up and Dance" episode of Black Mirror the other day. God damn. 

Yeah, that one was pretty good...if disturbing is their goal (and it is) then it was pretty good.

Started watching King of Hill. I watched it here and there back in the day, but this is my first time going start to finish. Forgot how funny this show is.

It's so good. We're in season 11 now.

I've been watching a lot of Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown recently. What a great food/ travel show. 

I'm a sucker for usually dark noir style shows and have been slowly making my way through the Amazon Too Old To Die Young. I'm 7 of 10 in.  It is from the guy who directed Drive, Nicolas Widing Refn. It stars Miles Teller as a corrupt LA Cop who goes deeper into the LA underworld. But, man it is sloooow. 10 episodes, each about 1 hour and 16 minutes with several at 90 minutes. It is a lot of panning, slow shots for a few minutes with little dialogue. The dialogue is slow as well.

But, it is looks really cool and is pretty in your face with its violence and underworld vibes. It is a tough watch, but has its moments.

I'm currently watching the reboot of HBO's "From the Earth to the Moon."  HBO is phenomenal.

Watched season 1 of Stranger Things last night. I liked it! Was more of a sci-fi than supernatural than I usually watch but still interesting. Might watch S2 later this year after summer and football season.

Just noticed season 13 of It's Always Sunny is on Hulu so watching episode 1. Great start so far. Make Paddy's Great Again. Mindy Kaling. Mac is super ripped and ordered a Dennis sex doll. All in the first 5 minutes.

That season was great. And that episode was an all timer. And I really thought Dennis was off the show...

I couldn’t get into it, but my friend with very similar taste loved it.

Then you will like seasons 2 and 3, unfortunately for me (sci-fi geek) they go away from the "sciency" stuff and more toward the supernatural/suspense/scarry route in the last 2 seasons.

I got bored with it halfway thru Season 2.  S1 was good.

I liked Travelers.  Bitter-sweet in that it had a conclusion (more accurately, a stopping point), but didn't finish the story before being canceled.

S3 of Snowfall....love the genre, but the acting and writing in this just keeps coming up so short of potential.  The CIA angle is plausible, if not a bit clumsy.  The kingpin, though, seems like a composite character that's just completely unrealistic.

Finishing up Big Little Lies and Instant Hotel on Netflix, then will start on Designated Survivor (Netflix) and Last Chance U, which I can't wait for. The coach on that show could be an absolute trainwreck at times.

Yeah, same with me but that’s because I like sci fi. I liked Travelers as well. Really liked the start of 12 Monkeys (similar show to Travelers) but honestly keep forgetting to switch to Hulu to watch it. Maybe watched the first half of season 1.

If you really liked the first half of S1 of 12 Monkeys, then you're going to absolutely love the show I think.  First 7-10 episodes can be rough, but then it gets exponentially better.  Even more amazing on re-watch, which I'll probably do again sometime this summer.

4 episodes into the last season of OITNB. The end of episode 4 is some powerful stuff.
