I'm running out of ideas as well.  I may rewatch True Detective (1st season).  I go through about a season a week.  I find myself waiting on about 10 shows right now.

Ever watched Vikings? There are five seasons that could keep you busy.

Going back through Roseanne atm, forgot how damn funny this show was. In the midst of the 3rd season and it's really hitting it's stride.

Does that stream anywhere?  We're 100% internet TV.

Edit: Not on Amazon Fire stick.  Have to buy the season.  Nope

Terrarium?

Yeah, I've caught a few episodes recently over-the-air on Laff. It was a great show, kinda happy they are bringing it back for a reunion season.

Started watching Bosch (Prime).  It's a nice change up.  I'm enjoying it.  Through 3 episodes.

It’s weird watching Marlo Stanfield as a detective and not a drug king.

You guys should watch Waco on paramount. It’s pretty good. New ep tonight. 

Saw the first 2 weeks.  Very good.  May have to get caught up.

 

As far as Roseanne. ...Good show back in the day..not sure how the reunion will go.

Atlanta returned last night and was good as advertised. Kat Williams stole the episode. 

I also started watching McMafia on AMC, which is pretty good so far. It is a good modern take on the mob. 

My favorite show on the air right now is Counterpart. Sci-fi meets the traditional spy story. JK Simmons is awesome in it.

Started The Looming Tower on Hulu last night. I thought the first episode was really good.

I enjoyed it also. Only Amazon show I’ve watched so far I think.

Currently watching the Newsroom. It’s not bad but not what I expected from an Emmy nominated HBO show. Pretty mediocre IMO.

Yeah, I liked the concept of the Newsroom, but the whole it happens in the past thing completely destroys the story. If we already know how the news story ends, kinda hard to make it dramatic. If it was set in the present with "fake" breaking news, I think it would have been better. Plus, some of the storylines were just dumb.

Binge it, it's so good.

First season was amazing, second season it was "ok". Stranger Things that is.

 

But that is because I am a huge "weird" physics fan and the first season really did well at diving into this, the second season did not.

Through 4 episodes of Manhunt: the unabomber

pretty good. It’s an easy watch and fast moving. The unabomber was a fucked up dude. 

Like this series a lot.

I finally finished season 4 of The 100 last night. I enjoyed how the story progressed, looking forward to season 5 this year.

I like this series, when is season 5 supposed to be on Netflix?

BLACK MIRROR SEASON 4 OUT TODAY! WOOOOO!!

 

I watched the first 2 episodes of season 1, it was odd but kind of liked it. I need to pick it back up.

Just started watching Atlanta and The Good Place.

Both are really better than I expected.

The Good Place season 1 is hilarious and good.

After season 1 it gets kind of weird, not as funny, but still "good".

There were things in season 1 that I actually laughed out loud, like the substitution words used for cursing, etc.

I'm 3 episodes into Altered Carbon on Netflix. It's entertaining sci-fi, if you're in to that. Cinemax-level nudity.

Heard about it, love sci-fi, but haven't started it yet. May this weekend.

Has anyone watched Travelers on Netflix? Co-worker recommended it and he's usually pretty good at recommending sci-fi.

Travelers was good, I enjoyed it well.

I loved the Newsroom, but I also work in them a bunch. So, I appreciated them nailing the work portion. The stories were pretty dumb after S1.

Not sure, but I think the next season starts on The CW soon.
