but try Fargo. yes, he's his old stuttering self, but evil! showing us how easily you can deceive those around you once everyone believes that you're just insecure...

On the plus side, hurray for comedies without laugh tracks.

plus one.

Re: TV Series

Mr Robot and Homeland are my current subject of interest. Both pose the immediate hyper-evolution of hacktivism and liberation of social media in a fashion that make both the CIA and larger Security Firms look like spoiled kids living the life of a xbox avatar.

Re: TV Series

I'm pretty big on tv shows, those I'm watching that are still running:

Good shows I'm excited about: (ranked starting with those I like the most)

Fargo (A must watch, season 2 is starting off great too. Love the cinematography.)
Peaky blinders (A++)
Luther
True Detective (kind of disappointed by season 2, but still excited about the next one.)
Hell on Wheels
Sherlock
Daredevil
Mr Robot (Like others in this thread, I was super excited after the first two episodes but not as much later. Still a good show tho.)
The Good Wife
GoT (This show is starting to be very frustrating. Sure people die, but other than that, the geopolitical status of the world pretty much hasn't changed in over 5 seasons, way to drag this shit on. It's still a good show, some very good acting, obviously deep story-line and everything, but it makes me cringe when people call it the greatest tv show ever made, ignorant statement in my opinion.)


Comedies I like: (For a good laugh, if that's your kind of humor, of course.)

The League
Veep
Brooklyn nine nine


Shows I'm watching but am not excited over anymore and will probably dump is they don't pick up the pace soon:

How to get away with murder
The Walking Dead (Come on, it's time to wrap this shit up)
Orange is the new black (Just like with Weeds, Jenji Kohan wrote a fun, refreshing tv show that got me excited. But after a few seasons it's running out of steam, it feels like the show has run its course, and she fails to keep me interested.)
Suits (It showed promises during the first two seasons, but it has turned into a show for teenage girls, such a waste. I blame the writers, they shat the bed big time on this one.)

Game of Thrones.
i loved the first 4 seasons, but yes, it is pretty much as you say and i never felt inspired to continue into season 5.

Interesting premise.
Definitely a watch again (even re-watch the pilot)

Re: TV Series

'GEAR KNOBS' (probable name) coming in 2016 and airing exclusively on Amazon Prime.

The trio of Jeremy, Richard and James (formally of Top Gear, my favorite show of all time) are presenting the new show and are being given wide control over it's content. More unbelievably beautiful and unattainable cars, more ridiculous humor and more road trips to gorgeous locales. cool

Wow.. Did the BBC thoroughly muck up this freaking goldmine or what!

Re: TV Series

I really try to avoid TV like the plague...the last show I watched for any extended period of time of Madmen on AMC. 
After that I switched over and caught a few episodes of WGN's "Manhattan". That show is actually very very well produced for being hosted on such a shit station. Deals with the race to the creation of the Atomic Bomb in the WWII... very good, but I just don't have the time or interest to keep up with it...plus it gets a bit too heavy on the dramatics..

I may give Amazon's new series (also WWII based)  The Man in the High Castle a go. Sort of alternate reality, and a big what if scenario if the Axis powers had won WWII.

Re: TV Series

Top Gear jumped the shark quite some time ago.

The last few series have been just awful, IMO.

Re: TV Series

Not for me. Their antics can get quite tiresome sometimes, especially during their road trips (oh, look, they're sabotaging James' car), but when they get that combo of cinematography, music, comedy and an awesome automobile together...

Come on, you're not going to watch the Le Ferarri/McLaren/Porsche showdown?

Nah, I prefer the Porshe regardless of their opinion tongue

It's not for everyone and their humor is obviously rehearsed. Even still, we find it a welcomed escape from all the other noxious crap on tv.

Re: TV Series

I've recently been enjoying a charming miniseries called "A Great Welsh Adventure with Griff Rhys-Jones".  As an American with Welsh roots several generations back, I'm finding the series surprisingly relatable.

it is rare that the producers care to create some closure, some ending to the story, even though a second season is already in the makings. hat off!

tonight i will watch the last episode of season 1 of the blacklist.
i'm extremely impressed, the storyline is so twisted!
the actual blacklist that gave the series its name provides only a loose framework, there's so much more beyond.
i'd love to say more, but i don't know how without making it a spoiler.
if you like detective/crime series, watch it.

Re: TV Series

My favorite Flash animated series has an episode coming up in a week featuring Lena Hall.  (Spoiler alert:  Her character's an ungulate. wink )  Been eagerly anticipating this episode since an animatic was featured at San Diego Comic Con; the wait has been deliciously excruciating, especially considering all that's been leaked about the episode so far is the animatic and "Lena Hall".  (Nice song in the animatic; I have to admit I don't care much for her work with The Deafening, but I think she sounds great with a piano and orchestra.  Still baffled how they play those instruments with hooves though.)
