I cautiously peeked at a plot summary and the show just reached the end of the first book.

Are you guys downloading this or is it screening on SyFy uk?

Also, Avasarala is just pants threateningly amazing. She's yummy.

Right?! It's halfway and it's making less sense than ever. (On the other hand, that was also true of Dirk Gently, which went on to land the ending brilliantly.)

These kind of comments make me wonder if I'm somehow missing a whole load of stuff because it seems pretty coherent to me (relative to the fact it's about someone with uncharted psychoactive powers and a history of mental illness of course).

Finished Santa Clarita diet last night and the end of the final episode was a straight set-up for Season Two so hopefully there'll be more of it.

Really enjoyed it from start to finish, and the 28(ish) minute running time for each episode was a nice snappy change of pace from other series.

Many genuine LOL moments in there, like properly laughing at the telly.

If you have Netflix then watch this.

Ok, so, I forgot I hadn't watched the latest episode yet and, sitting here halfway through it, I take the above post back entirely; it's bonkers. I'm still loving it though, it looks incredible and is so charming confident in it's utter batshittery. And Jemaine Clement is fucking brilliant.

I bloody love it. Definitely my favourite episodic thing at the moment.

David has a great line in confused faces.

I think I know most of what's going on, but it's like David Lynch did an X Men movie that was ten hours long and I love it.

Major props to the set designers and those who dealt with the aesthetics of the whole piece. It looks beautiful, and even the bits that look weird (the first fight in the latest episode) do so for a reason and are stylised accordingly.

Roll on Thursday!

I finished watching season 4 of Viking last night. There's going to be a season 5 so a lot of people got away from the fighting to live another day so not all the main characters died... as you would have expected them to.

One main character however was shot by an arrow. She was separated from the rest of her team so there was a specific shot on her lying in the mud with an arrow sticking out of her heart accompanied by some sad music. The next scene cut to some other characters and the scene after that went back to the girl with the arrows in her chest but she was now sitting up at the table with all her other colleagues having a meal and discussing something else. Totally fine! Annoying.

Also, they made the English look totally inept at raising and running an army. I know that the series is focused on the Vikings and they're the main characters but does the English army really need to be made up of portly, old looking men?

Oh yeah... one more thing. The new ruler of the Kattegat (the town the Vikings come from) has decided that they need to build defenses to protect the town. All well and good except they built them while a great number of bad guys were already in the town, essentially locking them in to do what they want.

So let's all look forward to season 5 then!

Latest episode of Legion.

Woah.

Started off slowly and quite straightforward, but boy did it move things on and be creepy as fuck in the second half, and ended brilliantly.

It's got such a sneaky way of drawing you in during the episode and just as it has you in its grasp, the bloody episode ends!

Plus bonus asses.

Love this show.

I'm a somewhat irregualr viewer & poster on here so please forgive me if this show has been mentioned before (I don't really have the time to check back through 75 pages of comments).

Anyway, SOUTHLAND....

Best cop show since The Wire (my fave US TV show of all time).

Dynamic, gritty, very well acted & brilliantly directed, plus you don't need to watch several episodes to get hooked (the one downside of The Wire).

I hadn't heard of this show until about a month ago.
Since then, I've watched the first 3 seasons and have just started on season 4.

First season was solid & each new season is slightly better than the last IMO.

Great show basically.....


Have just watched through Southland. It is very good indeed.

We watched a load of Santa Clarita diet last night and like most other people here, think it's brilliant.

We watched the first episode. Ruth liked it, I thought it was a bit silly.

It gets sillier (in a good way) I was dubious at first, but finished watching it yesterday and really enjoyed it

I'm enjoying Iron Fist. The critical reception's been pretty negative, but I like it.

Indeed, catastrophe is superb. Warm, touching , vulgar, funny.* I'm kind of in love with both Sharon Horgan and rob delaney.

Looks quite good, the sort of thing that Supernatural once threatened to become (there were I think two series of that which I really enjoyed).

Except.... that's Calvin from Hollyoaks right?
