Danger 5 is awesome. Stupid as hell, but awesome. Seen quite a few ads for season 2 on TV over here and it looks even crazier.

I have never heard of Danger 5.

I just watched a trailer for Danger 5.

I will now be watching Danger 5.

Better Call Saul is becoming pretty boring not even had the urge to watch the latest episode :/

The Walking Dead seems to be repeating the same type of stuff now and a few of the characters in the group haven't even said anything for the past what 4 episodes. Really don't know how they're gonna make 12 seasons out of this as it's becoming pretty stale as it is.

No spoilers here, but as someone who's read the comics, I can tell you that something's coming that should make for great TV. If - IF - they do it correctly.

As it stands, I thought the latest episode was probably the best one of this series since the escape from Terminus.

I quite like the turn they're currently taking, hopefully we'll see them settle in Alexandria and have some fun, lower their guard a bit. The characters still need fleshing out. As said, if done as well as the comics the next season and a half has enormous potential.

I've seen a few people saying the same about Better Call Saul, they all seem to have been expecting it to be Breaking Bad without Walter etc. As in the way Saul was in BB rather than the story of how he got there.

In regards to The Walking Dead, it had been boring me for a while but the last few episodes had picked up a bit, despite that it does seem to just be the same general idea repeated to me. Wander around, one or two people might die, they find new people, get taken into a safe community, fuck it up, more people die, go back to wandering around.

I'm fucking loving Better Call Saul so far.

Maybe people were expecting more meth-y shit and less Saul being a lawyer?

Better Call Saul is excellent and I automatically distrust anybody who thinks differently.

New Agents of SHIELD was pretty good, the turnaround in quality on that show from the first dozen or so episodes is remarkable. I still think Agent Carter was better though. Really looking forward to the Daredevil series.

Yeah, Better Call Saul is borderline excellent television.

As for Lost, I actually really enjoyed the finale.

And yeah, I remember reading that Lost was meant to be a series or two less than it was but that pressure from the network had them inflate the story to stretch over more time.

Anyone here watching Marry Me?

So far it's been okay, like a 6/10 at best every episode, but the one that was on E4 tonight was actually really good, several really solid jokes throughout. I wouldn't have recommended before, but now I think it has the potential to be a fun series to watch that isn't overly demanding. The kind of show you'd binge watch on a sick day.

That comment can be read very diffferently than what was meant. :lol:

Yeah, it's the definition of watchable.

Fake Galikifanichas is doing a decent job, and I like the two leads so I go through a few episodes when I got nohting else to do.
