I just can NOT get into Farscape, I stopped mid season 2 and it just seems like muppets in space.

Mid-season 2 is about when the effects and cinematography started getting significantly better.  Still really rough in comparison to most modern productions, but S3 and S4 are more serial and character driven (as opposed to "Muppets in Space" the first 2 seasons).  Although S4 isn't as good as S3, and ended abruptly (largely closed with a miniseries after). No promises, but there's even an episode where they run into replicators.

I couldn't into Dark.  Quit a couple times part-way into Season 2.  Honestly, 12 Monkeys ruined whatever Dark might have been for me, although plenty of people love both (and vice-versa).

Took me a bit to get into The Expanse.  Ended up liking it quite a bit.  Best part is there are 3-4 books after where the series ends in S6.

I watched Dark Matter.  It was just OK for me.

I couldn't get into it when it was all subtitles. I have it on my list now that I heard it has been dubbed into English. 


But I haven't watched it yet.

I'm the opposite. I tried to watch with subs and I had to go back to German. I didn't like the sounds not matching up perfectly. Plus, reading it helped me stay engaged and understand a bit more. I am the only person I know who preferred this.

The Heist in Netflix is pretty fun especially the Pappygate episodes

Same boat. Hated the dub. Loved the subtitles.

I just realized I haven't watched the final season of The 100 yet. Thanks for the reminder.

Me neither, its on my list as well.


I am in the same boat for The Flash, haven't watched the newest season.

Watched the first couple episodes of The White Lotus on HBO. Not what I expected so far but going to keep with it as there’s obviously some dark twists coming.

Finished the first season of Hunters. Crazy ending, looking forward to the second season whenever it comes out.

Three episodes into Invincible and it still has my interest.
