2 episodes in to Last Man On Earth, fucking loving it. Funniest show I've seen since Bojack Horseman. Kristen Schaal being the female lead was a nice surprise too.

Peaky is probably one of the best British shows on right now. Just so many talented actors who just smash it out every episode.

I am going through series like nobodies business. Bojack Horseman is complete, two more episodes of Daredevil left - getting pretty exciting it is too. What next?

First 2 episodes of Fear the Walking Dead have been slow going. Struggling to stay interested in it at the moment.

It's stupid as fuck, but hilarious.

Hard Knocks is almost finished.

No Rick and Morty next Sunday.

Family Guy doesn't start til the end of the month.

Anyone got any recommendations for shows? Preferably on Netflix.

I saw recently that Black Adder is up on Netflix. I think Red Dwarf is up too.

I re-watched Terra Nova on the US site recently, and would recommend that.

If you're into anime, then Fate/Zero and Steins;Gate are up on one/both.

She's got the tongue like an electric eel and loves the taste of a mans tonsils.

Bit disappointed with there only being season 1 & 2 though. Prefer 3 and 4 over 1.

It's arse. I've given up on it already. Don't like a single character on it, there's barely even a story, and the script appears to have been written by a 12 year old.

I'm giving it another week. Hell, it's only 6 episodes so I'll probably stick with it either way. I'm a sucker for zombies (although we've barely seen any yet!).

Anyone watching The Strain? Working through Season 1 now, it ain't bad for mindless viewing.

I lasted two episodes before realising my time would be better spent staring out of the window with my head propped up on my arm, and drooling onto a table. You know, like the writers.





Narcos - The true story of drug lord Pablo Escobar with a bit of fiction thrown in. The more ludicrous the story gets, the more truth it actually contains.
Giving himself up to serve time in a prison he built for himself, with guards on his payroll, with hand-picked "inmates" and with no police allowed within 2 miles of the place? Yup. that happened.
I watched all ten parts over two nights. It was that good. Oberyn Martell from Game of Thrones was great as a sleazy cop.

I watched the final episode of MTV's Scream earlier. It turns out that I'd guessed the killer's identity three episodes ago so I was left slightly disappointed there wasn't more of a story behind the murders. Considering I thought it was going to be crap though, it managed to hold my attention most of the time. Dedicating the episode to Wes Craven was a nice touch too.

Two episodes into Fear The Walking Dead and I've given up already. Shit story, bad acting, naff script, and not a single character I even remotely like.
Go away.

Masters of Sex has taken a while to get going this series, even repeating itself in a couple of episodes. However, it seems that fingers have finally been pulled from orifices and things are moving along quite nicely again. Hardly the most explosively charged and action packed show on TV, but always worth watching.

John Oliver's Last Week Tonight needs to be seen by more people. Brilliant stuff.

Review With Forrest Macneil suffered its first misfire this week. Two decent challenges but neither of them worked to their full potential. Otherwise, it's been excellent so far this series.

Under the Dome will finish forever at the end of this season. Noooooooooooo!

The final episode of Mr Robot was postponed last week because of the reporter and her cameraman being shot dead on live TV. I wonder how close to the mark it actually was. Episodes of certain shows get postponed whenever there's a tragic real life shooting, but so many times there's very little - if anything - to link them. After Sandy Hook, an episode of Hannibal was removed because it featured a woman kidnapping children and getting them to murder their parents. Tenuous isn't the word.
