Binged Mr Robot while ill on Saturday. Pretty great, and the majority of the tech terms were actually real.

Now I keep watching Continuum which is thoroughly bland but I'm interested enough in the concept and 3 seasons deep, so I'm finishing season 4 now.

Finally tackling season 2 of Game Of Thrones. So glad I don't have to wait a week between cliffhangers, that bit where the shadow thing crawls out of Melisandre the fire priestess' cunt was terrifying :lol:

Scream Queens gets better the more screen time Chad Radwell gets.

From Dusk Till Dawn finishes this week. It's been way better than I expected.

Modern Family still rules.

Z Nation gets better/funnier by the week.

Season 6 of The Walking Dead is in danger of being the best so far.

Agents of SHIELD has carried on being brilliant.

The Muppets is surprisingly funny.

Season 2 of Fargo started a bit strangely but episode 2 was fantastic.

2nd Episode of American Horror Story was a significant improvement on the first. The third wasn't.

Currently loving Lady Olena Tyrell in season 3 of GoT. Shame they didn't get Maggie Smyth to play her though.

I quite like it, but I don't adore it the same way everyone else seems to.

Yup, had that up since Season 1, don't think I'll change it now. I still enjoyed the new season but some of the fandom has gone waaaay overboard, like pretty much every other show's fandom when the show gets popular. :lol:

First episode of Ash vs the Evil Dead was so incredibly groovy I felt like running up and down the street yelling excitedly. Waited 23 years for this and it's everything I hoped it would be...elements of the horror and gore of the first, the comedy of the second and the daft Ash from the third. Bloody brilliant.

Finally decided to get Netflix about a month ago. Well worth it.

American Horror Story: Murder House was really good, nice little twists and turns throughout, bettered by Asylum which was more of a psycological thriller/drama with horror elements but I really enjoyed it.

Coven was, well, thoroughly disappointing given how much I liked the first two seasons. Felt like it was made for teenage girls and couldn't make up it's mind what it wanted to focus on so juts jumped from half an arc to another half an arc and so on. The big thing it seemed to be building to "witches vs voodoo" was a damp squib at best.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through Freak Show currently and I am enjoying it much more than Coven. It's a slower pace and seems more character oriented than other seasons but it's a good watch.

After Five losing the rights and just forgetting about it for 2 or 3 years I've got right back into Once Upon A Time easily. Watched seasons 3 and 4 within a fortnight and it's a great show with the right balance between fantasy, character building and soppy love stuff to keep everyone interested. Waiting for season 5 to finish so I can binge watch it.

Was watching season 3 of Orphan Black on Iplayer but to my frustration today it's no longer on there and I have 3/4 episodes left to watch grrrrr.

Having previously watched episodes here and there, I've happily replaced Family Guy/American Dad with Archer to watch when I can't sleep. Fucking brilliant. Just started season 3.

Me and the missus are also part way through Daredevil and it's definitely one I'd reccomend.


Has anyone seen Grimm?

I was worried I was going to find myself caring about none of the characters in Homeland from season 4 onwards. Pretty much right, just about holding my interest so far.
