    I just finished Succession. Really enjoyed it. The character development is so good. Also Greg kills me, every episode.

    The nice twist at the end was awesome. I love Succession.

    Deuce is fucking great. Typical Simon show. The 3rd and final season is nearly over and I enjoy it so far.

    Yup. I was actually angry at the end of it. Great performances by everyone in the cast. The worst part is that's exactly how it happened. I watched the Ken Burns film about it and it tracks closely to the show. 

     

    I'm finally, finally watching Peaky Blinders. Great show. 

    I caught the pilot of the Watchmen on Sunday and thought it was pretty good. Thought provoking for sure. A nice continuation of the story.

    Getting around to going through Narcos. Almost done with the first season. Overall, really good, although it is disconcerting how many characters get introduced on a show with the narration acting like they're a big deal...and then they get killed either that same show or the very next one.

    Corrupt CIA agent working with Escobar? Caught by the DEA, offers information and is killed by Escobar's men.

    Escobar going to his own self-made jail? He gives his organization over to two near-family trusted lieutenants who had either no role or next to no role previously. And then kills both of them out of paranoia in the very next episode.

    It's getting to the point where if I see a new character and they get any sense of importance, I pretty much expect them to be dead in 15 minutes.

    Let's just say those are the 3 worst of the series...it only gets better. 

    Episode 8: Prague is an all timer.

    The finale of S2 is up there with the best episodes of television I’ve ever seen. Obviously a different kind of awesome from GOT, Breaking Bad, The Wire etc. But tremendous stuff nonetheless.
     

    It was just perfectly done: from the dialogue, confined setting, discussion at the table, to the last scene.

    I'm a few eps into Fleabag and I love it.

    Wife and I stopped watching HBO Ballers a few years ago.  Started it over.  We love the show.  A little raunchy at times, but we like the story line.

    Have heard good things about this show.

    I have S5 on my DVR.  Guilty pleasure, I don't care if it's lifestyle porn.

    Fleabag is one of the best shows of the year. The fact that it is so short is a huge plus. I plowed through the second season in a night. 

    I started AHS: 1984 over the weekend. I'm two behind. I'm not a huge slasher film fan, but I liked the twists and turns. I wasn't high on the premise, but I like it actually so far. 

    I watched the series finale of the Deuce last night. Strong last two episodes, some shocking ends to some characters, and I liked the way the show landed.

    Three episodes in to Stranger Things season 3. Great season so far.

    My husband and I are watching The West Wing from the beginning. I've seen it once, he's never watched it. It will probably take us 2+ years to get through it lol.

    I'm watching Six Feet Under on my own.

    I've watched the first 3 shows of "Evil"....I think it's pretty well done so far.  Acting and writing are very good so far.

    Although I guess it would be fair to call it a knock-off of X-files, but instead of aliens you're dealing with the supernatural.

    So good. I wish Sorkin had waited for his political drama until like 2015. He would’ve destroyed it on subscription TV. Instead we got The Newsroom, which I liked, but was admittedly not great.

    It really is great. I binged it pretty quickly the first time. I can't get my husband to watch anything with me, but he seems to be enjoying it so far. He's caught me off guard several times by suggesting we watch an episode or two. Normally I have to force him into sitting and watching 45 minutes of television. 

    I liked The Newsroom, too.

    It's interesting to me how we always seem to be polar opposites with AHS lol! I've been 50/50 on this season; some of the episodes I've appreciated and some of them I haven't. Last nights episode to me was "meh"
    I think the problem that I have is shorter episodes and shorter seasons which makes too many things happen too fast and/or glossed over. I just can't seem to get drawn in with many of the characters because of this.

    Started a few new shows this week on the firestick so I'm not sure what network they air on.

     

    Primal- this is a cartoon that has no talking.  It is about a caveman who is befriended by a T-Rex and they try together to survive.  Its really good surprisingly.

    War of the Worlds- Two different remakes were released recently both are from UK/France.  One is set in the 1800's and one is set  in 2019.  I enjoy both.

    See- This stars Jason Momoa(sp?) from aquaman/GOT- About a world where everyone has been blind for centuries.  I watched the first two episodes, I like sci-fi so I enjoy it and will keep watching.

    Watchmen-  I had to google a little more about the comic to catch on but I think i will stick it out.  I have to Ffwd at times cause they get a little dramatic and slow at times.

    Just finished

    The Boys- I almost gave up on it but i'm glad i didnt, turned out to be pretty good.
