Neil Gaiman has said that he wants Bryan Fuller to do a Sandman TV show.

I'm clearly broken - I gave up on American Gods after about 20 minutes.

I really liked it but I've read the book and so I've got no idea what I would have made of it all otherwise. There's inevitably a lot missing and it seems to move along at breakneck speed.

I have no idea what's going on. Definitely one for the fans rather than new viewers.

I avoided Fargo the TV series for ages because I love the film so much and thought it was going to be a crappy remake, but I was an idiot because it's brilliant. Each season is set in a different time period but linked to the movie and each other. If you like the film then I recommend it highly!

Well DUH.

Glad you decided to give it a whirl.

I dunno, I loved the book but this has left me cold.

I don't know nothing about it, I've never heard of it or the books. Is it some superhero bollocks again?

Never read American Gods because the premise sounded so stupid, but when it comes to TV Shows, my standards are lower, and i guess i'm falling to the hype, so i'm going to watch it tonight.

The third season of Fargo is keeping the high quality we're used to. McGregor is great on it, and the guy who plays is lawyer is going to be the Ed Harris of his generation (best supporting actor around). Too bad I don't even know his name even though he's everywhere. The actress who plays Nora Durst on the Leftovers is also on it, and she's fantastic as always.

Silicon Valley is still the funniest show on TV.

The Leftovers is even better/weirder than on season 2.

Better Call Saul - I love the Jimmy/Kim story line, but i'm not really into the Mike plot with the drug gangs. It's getting a bit boring actually.

I think I should ask if I should read the book first.

I would read the book and then not bother with the TV series.

I like Mike. I wish i can look as badass as him when i'll get to his age.

It's just there's not much overlapping between his and Saul's storyline right now. It seems like i'm watching two different shows.

American Gods: Really liked the neon-noir ambience. It's promising. The problem with "real-world" fantasy is that's hard to balance before it becomes silly. The first season of true blood did it right. All the others didn't and suffered from power creep/Dragon Ball Z syndrome.

Let's see if American Gods can pull it off.

True Blood just went on far too long, like they started with everything except an actual story to tell then just kept on winging it. Hopefully American Gods will reach its conclusion in a season or two.

Second episode of Rick and Morty was much, much better. The bit about Snowballs testicles was proper mega lol

Hey would you look at that, Chris Pine has a cameo in ep01 in the latest series of Angie Tribeca!

Or was it Chris Pratt? No, it was Pine. Or Pratt.
