    I'm watching the 2nd season now and I really like this show. I would like it even more, though, if they took it that little step further and made it True Detectives... All it needs is one "Ïa ïa Shub-Niggurath" reference, and season 2 takes on a WHOLE new meaning ;)

    Currently watching The Night of with Riz Ahmed, and having binged watched TV shows all year I can confidently say this is the best TV drama I've seen in quite a while.

    I must also admit that I did not recognize Mr. Ahmed when I first saw him in this. That's a bit embarrasing, but despite him having acted in The Night of and Rogue One (as Bodhi Rook) in the same year, or thereabouts, he looks quite different (younger and much more vulnerable) in The Night of. Actually, I don't think he was quite allowed to shine in Rogue One as he is absolutely fantastic in The Night of! Can't wait to see more of Mr. Ahmed :D

    PS: As a bonus, 'half' the cast of The Wire is also in this show :D

    I am now super busy with my Master's degree, so I only watch short series during weekends. Last one was Stella Blómkvist (2017) from Iceland. It's only 6 episodes, yet still pretty good and intense. It's one of the times, when you check something out, because it's exotic and stay, because it turns out to be interesting.

    So have just finished NARCOS Mexico. Absolutely fantastic show with a equally fantastic cast I’m just hopeful that they will do a second series.
    Have now much veg on to Salem not sure why apart from it’s on NETFLIX & I need something to pass the time while stuck at home with a horrid cold & sore throat :(.

    have you seen 'Tin Star' with Tim Roth? it's really good.

    it's a Sky production, so i have no idea if that would be on Netflix (about the only thing i don't have currently lol).

    Watched CW's Elseworlds and Invasion! crossovers with my dad, and we're about 13 episodes into ATLA Season 1. He's really enjoying them so far! ...doesn't want to watch Crisis on Earth-X though.

    Mom and I started Parks and Recreation about two weeks ago. Just started Season 2 tonight. I've been cringe-enjoying it.

    Just saw the first two episodes of Star trek Enterprise, not sure if I will continue with this.

    Just found out now that Netflix and Jim Henson Studios are working in a prequel for the Dark Crystal.

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is tv show with 10 episodes (I don't know how long each episode will be).

    The storyline from IMDB:

    "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" returns to the world of Thra, where three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis' power and set out to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world. "

    Currently watching 2 BBC dramas.

    1st Les Miserables it’s a new 6 part adaptation of the novel (so no songs :).) It’s got a pretty good cast & I enjoyed the first episode. Also I haven’t read the book or seen the Musical or even watched the recent film so I haven’t got a clue what’s coming sloth I can guess it’s nothing good for most of the characters.

    2nd is Luther I’m watching both season 5 every night & then watching from the beginning I’m about to start the 3rd Episode of the first season during the day.

    i'm interested, though a huge fan of the book, so i can be pretty hard on adaptations.

    i need to catch up on this! i only watched the first couple of seasons and have meaning to get back to it!

    ~ * ~

    i started watching the new Watership Down mini-series last night. it's definitely someone's passion project, but it's pretty badly adapted (almost to the point of being nonsensical) and it's almost horrendously rendered. not even sure i'll finish it, but two episodes in it just amazes me that someone looked at the final animation on this and gave it a pass. i read an article that compared it to the Walking Dead and that's spot on. it's just a long slog of dread with little sense of purpose. the old cartoon version was much gorier, a much more faithful adaptation, and also had characters who weren't frozen in terror every moment onscreen.

    for all that, it's made me want to read the book again, so I guess that's a win! : D

    So I’m finally up to season 5 of Luther & it’s such a good show though Season 1 is still my favourite even having Rose Leslie turn up in Season 4 wasn’t enough.
    Also there is only 1 episode left of Les Miserables which I have enjoyed even if no one seems to be heading for a happy ending the Barricade scene in the last episode was fantastic.
    So a binge watch of the first 5 episodes before Sunday’s finally is probably in order. The cast is top notch as well & I certainly have a soft spot for Eponine played by the fantastic Erin Kellyman (Enfys Nest). Also is Marius so melodramatic in the book & musical because seriously he was a bit much in last nights episode.

    yes, he's a total whiner in the book and typically that carries over into the musical as well, though Eddie Redmayne managed to pull off a Marius who wasn't completely obnoxious somehow. part of the point of the story is how naive and spoiled both Cosette and Marius are.

    i do want to watch this! Javert and Eponine are my favorite characters and i really want to see Enfys Nest in the role of Eponine! : D

    i'm behind one episode at the moment, but i am loving this as well! : D

    I read it in the original French. It was tough to get through, and a little hard to follow for me.

    ... looking back it might have been helpful if I actually spoke and understood French...

    On topic though! I've been going through Cheers. It's nice to have something where you don't have to think about life every once in a while. :)

    Entreprise is my 2nd favourite Star Trek show after Discovery.

    BTW, I'm watching Discovery S2 right now.

    We are on season 2 of NARCOS. I believe when Cassian Andor series was announced they said they will start filming when Diego Luna is done with season 2 of NARCOS Mexico.

    I'm gonna watch again The Leftovers which is IMO one of the greatest show ever.
