TV Shows to Watch/Binge - Current and All-Time
Just finished "Maniac" on Netflix.

It's a great show on a wide variety of levels. If it doesn't absolutely clean up at the Emmys next year I'll be shocked.

The influences are wide. It's sci fi done right, like "Stranger Than Fiction". Subtle, smart, with just the right amount of humor and heart tugs. The retro-futurism is a great touch. The only other time I've seen it on this scale is Space Station 76, and it ads a great atmosphere.

I highly recommend.

I already had it added on my list but didn't check it out yet.
But I will check it out soon after reading this. Sounds right up my alley.

I don't really watch anything these days, apart from Youtube and IR Pron Tongue

But I must say something caught my eye on the adverts recently, it's called "God Friended Me". It's not a religious show I don't believe, more on the supernatural side...but looks like a really interesting concept.

I'm in OZ land so no doubt it's already showcased for most of you guys there in the US. Anyone able to comment on it?

I mostly Netflix these days but if I do watch TV it's mostly sports or HBO or old TV shows. I have been watching season 2 of The Deuce on HBO. I also watch the Flash and Supergirl and Agents of Shield. Too bad the 6 seasons of AOS will be in the summertime after Avengers 4 because they are followed the event of Infinity War

True Detective Season 3

If y'all haven't started it, start it.

You won't find a better written series anywhere on tv. The dialogue is tremendous. Witty and rich with subtext, they never underestimate the audience.

The casting is as good as anything you've seen. Marshahala Ali is his usual amazing self. But Stephen Dorf will really surprise you. He's got to play a range and an arc I didn't know he had in him. The conversations between the two about race really touch on how complex race relations really are. And Scoot Mcnairy, who I love already, does a fine turn as the aggrieved. Rounding out is Carmen Ejogo, who plays Ali's wife. Man. If you've been married you will really appreciate the ebb and flow of that relationship. She's fantastic because she drives him to introspection, often against his will. The combination of being both ally and antagonist is realistic yet rarely seen in film.

This isn't a good show. It's a great show. 5 episodes in and anyone who loves crime shows, social commentary or just great acting should be on board. The story is unraveled in these wonderful onion layers, you can see the great care that was taken by whomever was in front of the keyboard.

I highly recommend.

Well it's better than season 2. But this season is not over yet, they might fuck it up. Or not. We'll see.

I might have to go read the comic because this show has been crazy good and one of the best soundtracks on a TV show. If you watched and liked MisFits, Robert Sheehan is basically playing a drugged up version of Nathan which is just as hilarious.

Amazon has already renewed it for a second season.

And they just renewed it for a third season before the second has even come out.

I really enjoyed Umbrella Academy. Just finished True Detective season 3 and thought it was up there in quality to season 1. Never watched season 2 because everyone told me it sucked. Looking to start a new series, maybe The Bodyguard or Preacher season 2
