That first episode was amazing. Thirteen years since it went off the air, and they haven't missed a beat. Same sense of fun, same exact focus on visual storytelling, etc, just a tiny bit darker and more grown up (that scene of all the living corpses floating down the river looked amazing).
Loved that Sammie Davis Jr-esque villain too.

^ Have you been watching Iron Fist yet?

Or anyone else?


Edit: So, I've seen the first episode, and it's pretty cool so far. The villains seem pretty generic but solid, the Game of Thrones dude does a great job playing a really likable Danny Rand, the Kung Fu is pretty cool to watch, the soundtrack is solid (hiphop always mixes well with Kung Fu).. couldn't find any indication of it being worse than the other Marvel Netflix shows. If anything, the other shows were overhyped and rated too generously when they came out. I gotta watch more to really be able to form an opinion of course, but so far, so good.

Last night's episode of Better Call Saul was one of the finest episodes of television I've ever had the privelidge to watch. Just sensationally electric, and like nothing else on TV. Since the first season, I've always said I prefer this to Breaking Bad, and with each season, I feel more and more vindicated by that. Rarely I watch a TV episode again outside of a major plot twist or finale, but I've watched "Chicanery" twice already, and it's worth of a third.

Incidentally on that note, I will definitely be giving this weeks Doctor Who episode, "Knock-Knock" another watch, solely due to the performance of the great David Suchet in it.

Lately I'm watching "The X-Files" on tv.
I'm waiting for "Twin Peaks" too, as well as "1993" :)

I'm watching a few right now. I'm watching Designated Survivor, Timeless, The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, and I think that's it right now.

I think that is a surprisingly excellent show. Maggie Q is pretty good in it, though the last thing I watched with her in it was Nikita (which I also enjoyed lot), so keep expecting her to be better at fighting than she is in Designated Survivor, though to be fair she has kicked some ass and done some lockpicking already, and has been a sort of shadowy force operating a secret mission in plain sight, so not a million miles away from Nikita either...

My favourite ever, though I was too young at the time to appreciate it. My expectations are low as well for the new season, but I think I ll love it no matter what.

I missed the last few episodes, but finally got caught up last night. The show does an awesome job of making you want more. There's a huge turn of events and then BAM credits. I think it is moving at a great pace too.

The Handmaid's Tale

Based on a book that my lady considers one of her favourite reads. I haven't read the book so expected it to be some stupid girly claptrap but fuck me it's dope.

Get involved.

You watched the finale yet? It was pretty awesome, and she had a properly brutal fight too!

Well, after various recaps and fastforwarding some episodes I'm actually pretty hyped because of of the "see you in 25 years" stuff, seems it was a lingering idea even back then...

I enjoy wathing all the Star Trek series reruns on Hereos and Icons.  Although I never really got into the original or the last one so far, Enterprise.  But it did allow me to see the ones I may have missed before or see some classic ones again.

The Avengers on Cozi TV, although it just recently restarted the entire series and I am finding the original season boring.  The others with the two new ladies much better and much more fun to watch, no pun intended.

And of course British comedies!  Black Books, Are You Being Served, Open All Hours, The Good Neighbors, Red Dwarf, Time Goes By, Keeping Up Appearances, Spy, The IT Crowd, Moone Boy, etc.

Twin Peaks is back! Though I doubt it will find success in the mainstream as the new season is more in tone with the prequel movie (Fire walk with me) than any of the previous two seasons. I love it. This is David Lynch weird tension and horror all the way.
