Good TV Series? Any?

Recommended Posts

Super 8 was JJ Abrahams love letter to Spielberg, but was not a Spielberg movie directly. =) 

 

Season 4 of Sherlock was great. The first episode felt a bit off, but I actually liked the way everything developed and where we're left for the potential final season.

Indeed, he was only credited as a producer. Still, it was a very fun flick as long as you approach it as a 'family movie' and not hard sci-fi or horror :)

Totally. Was a bit misleading in some of the marketing.

Speaking of JJ Abrahams, if I haven't already mentioned Fringe (too lazy to check previous pages), I'm gonna go ahead and recommend it again.

 

Fringe is one of the great sci-fi long-form stories to have been made. 100 episodes with a great arc that you can truly find seeds of the last season within the scenes of the first. While I wasn't 100% a fan of each episode, I give that show my full support for scope and execution.

A modern day X-Files. Too bad it ended up so abruptly :(

havent really watched tv lately. but when i visit my mom she always watches Poldark and its kinda nice i guess.

other than that, i rewatch all the goodies over the years, dont know HOW many times ive seen every episode of lets say Always sunny :D

ultra antisocial for a few years so gotta stalk up on them distractions

 

edit: oh and Mr Robot season 1 - before it went to utter shit, i still havent recovered mentally from the loss! i LOVED that bloddy season 1.

and ofc, Homeland - which is also ruined by the latest season.

Love Death Robots is amazing, I  did find myself wondering if the creators made a point of showing all that dick, but ain't an issue  with me, just an observation.

The expanse is also one of the amazing ones on TV. Although i haven't been able to watch any of the latest series because of licence changes and America exercising their television hegemony over the rest of us.... :D

Yes The Expanse seems really good, I was very curious to watch it and had it in my watch list on Netflix I think, before it got removed, and now it's an amazon exclusive? :(

I said fuck it and just downloaded from soulseek. If they aren't going to make it easy for me to pay and watch then watcha gonna do...

It's a lot of dialogue and slow moving pieces but i think it's super exciting.

The Expanse was cancelled by SyFy and was then picked up and renewed for additional seasons by Amazon. This is why it moved to Amazon and off of Netflix. There's nothing to be angry about with the switch. Without the switch, there wouldn't have been the latest season and no further episodes.

That said, I have no problems with pirating the show. I do. I just pirate because I am not giving Amazon a Prime membership. I'm not pirating because I feel owed that they took it off of Netflix. :/

As for shows, I'm currently loving the new Perry Mason and Stargirl.
