Anybody watching Barry? Just got caught up with it today. This is seriously one of the best shows around right now - these characters are three dimensional and lie to themselves for short-term pleasure. A unique premise - a hitman wants to quit the life and become an actor in LA - that works through the sheer strength of its writing and unpredictable, ruthless character choices.

Aye, I've seen the first four episodes. It's quite good and charming. I particularly like the acting teacher, unique flavour to the character. I'm not super compelled inasmuch as I don't (yet) feel the need to binge this over the course of a few days, but I definitely like to watch an episode or two before bed.

Like a lot of shows, season 2 is a huge jump in quality. The first season was good as well and better than some shows' first seasons, but the second one really comes into its own and you can see the true vision of what this show is about.

I watched the first 2-3 episodes and wasn't that into it, but maybe I'll give it another shot during some downtime.

I'm finally finishing up season 2 of The Orville. It's been alright. I don't think it's anywhere near as good as TNG, and I don't necessarily think it's better than Discovery. They're both okay-not-great for me.

Billions, Chernobyl, and The 100 are the shows I'm enjoying a lot right now. Sad The Magicians is done for the season.

I love Penn & Teller: Bullshit, but you might want to skip any episode where they go with libertarian think-tanks instead of, you know, scientists.

Here's a handy guide on the episodes that haven't aged well.

^ Just FYI that post is from page 1 and is 9.5 years old.

Halfway through True Detective: Season 3. It started out, "ok, this seems like it's basically doing The Force Awakens thing for season 1, but that's still an improvement over season 2." But by now I'm quite roped in and really digging it. I love the triple time-setting framing device and the unreliable "narrator."

Spoiler: show
All of the shit with the dementia/hallucinations is really, really good, and it's kind of starting to make me question other shit in the show. A few other scenes set in the past feel sort of off, like they've got this misremembered dementia haze surrounding them, that's doing an amazing job of making me wonder if it's intentional or if I'm reading too much into it, and I think that confusion is very much intentional. Masterful shit.

^ It's just such a rich, textured character study. The way it plays around with the dementia and forgetfulness isn't really any gimmicky twist so much as a realistic facet of the character. I loved all of it personally.

I also really dig the mystery of it. In season 2 I honestly didn't really give a shit about the victims or the crimes; the only thing worth caring about at all were the protagonists, and they were almost all stock trope type characters (granted, well-written and acted ones) except for Woodrugh, who was sort of under-utilized. Sharp contrast against S1, where we had Marty as kind of the straight man Joe Average cop guy, and Rust in such stark contrast to that trope. S3 has much different characters who are reeling me in much more. But anyway, in season 1
Spoiler: show
we had this kind of detective mystery in the first half, then the crime was "solved," then we find out they didn't get the real baddies and they've gotta work together and put their shit behind them to finish things as best they could. In S3, there are elements of "we got the wrong guy" but as of episode 4, we still don't know who that wrong guy is, or have any real solid leads on who the right guy may be, and there are so many other factors convoluting everything that I feel like it's going to keep me guessing until the very end.

I honestly found season 2 barely watchable at all and everything I saw annoyed me. I ended up quitting that and just starting Game of Thrones after all this time.

With TD Season 3, Mahershala Ali just sells that part and the writing for him was genuinely compelling and artful. It's one of the best crime stories I've watched in years because it focuses on grounded drama and human interests with the crimes shown for their brutality, with no real easy outs or cheap redemptions.

Funny you guys should mention True Detective. I'm actually watching Season 3 for the first time myself.

I finished the fifth episode and it started to lose me a bit. They obviously wanted to distance the season from season 2 and revert back to the motifs of the first. Pretty good, but the fifth episode was meh.

I watched the first season of Tuca & Bertie on Netflix. I was originally interested in it because the writer was on Bojack Horseman, which is a huge favourite of mine. This show is not on that level, but I found it interesting. It's super irreverent with its animation and style, but it was interesting enough to keep going. The last couple of episodes hit a more emotional nerve, with the second-last episode having a pretty heavy moment where
Spoiler: show
Bertie reveals she was sexually assaulted at age 12

but overall it was a decent show and I'll watch season 2.

I've been waiting for a sequel to The Dark Crystal since I was five. This somehow manages to be even more exciting than a TDC2.

Well that sucks! ABC dropped Whiskey Cavalier, one of very few new shows about which I give a crap :( Any of y’all enjoy not-too-serious crime comedy/dramas? Here’s a petition to show the network(s) that people will want this show back!

So I've watched the first two episodes of the new Black Mirror season so far, and I just have to say Bravo to Andrew Scott (same guy who played Moriarty in Sherlock). His performance in the second episode was tremendous. BAFTA, Golden Globe, and Emmy, here we come.

Chernobyl was fucking incredible. Binged all five episodes yesterday. Haunting stuff with an amazing cast. Even knowing quite a lot about the events (I wrote a thesis paper that detailed the failures of Chernobyl) it was still very shocking to watch.

Just finished cramming Ozark (S2) into my cakehole - more sardonic than that, you croak! - and am now dutifully chugging down American Horror Show S8 (Apocalypse)...Incredible, really, how the quality of television has sky-rocketed over the years.

Finally watched the third one. Summary

Striking Vipers - Slow and plodding. Interesting though.
Smithereens - Stellar. Not the sort of "technology taken to an extreme" thing you'd expect from Black Mirror, but great nonetheless.
Jack and Rachel and Ashley Too - Fun and weird. Not intellectual/deep, but enjoyable.

Striking Vipers is a work of art. One of the show's all time best - a return to the more character driven, intimate uncomfortable moments of the earlier seasons and I welcome it. So much better than the ridiculous stuff in a lot of Season 4.

Smithereens was masterfully made and executed as a crime thriller; great ambiance, thrills and atmosphere. The lack of any music made the still and quiet moments so damned tense and I loved the middle section of this episode. Though the end got a little preachy even for this show. But I didn't hate it - was too well made to hate.

Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too was just a fun thrill ride. Had some playful and probing ideas about fame and how we connect with music, albeit nothing we haven't considered before, but it's done in an intriguing enough way and I was having fun all the way through. Miley Cyrus was great in it.

Alright, fucking finally: S2E6 of Discovery was the first episode of this show that a) wholly felt like Star Trek to me and b) was really good the whole way through. This is really the proper way to do a Star Trek episode in the modern era: successfully incorporate series/season-spanning drama and character development into self-contained episodes, go heavy on the exploration and encountering new cultures stuff in the classic Trek mode, and use the tools of the big budget and modern effects to make things feel more real and alien. The relationship between Saru and his sister was believable and touching, the relationship between the Kelpians and Ba'ul was interesting, and the design of the Ba'ul was really cool. Hope there are more like this coming up, because this episode has single-handedly turned getting through this show from being a chore to something I'm actually looking forward to.

I just hope they can stop doing episode about this ridiculous goddamn spore network thing that's probably the single least believable thing in all of Star Trek history.

I recently came across this list uproxx created of their top 10 episodes of Breaking Bad, which, while not bad, I don't quite agree with 100%, so I decided to make one of my own:

Pilot: great first episode with consistently amazing style, energy, and substance, and it set the tone and pace for the rest of the series brilliantly
Crazy Handful Of Nothin': thrilling as fuck, and it has the birth of Heisenberg, baby!
Grilled: one of the tensest single hours in the show's history
Fly: divisive among the fanbase, but I've always felt it was a brilliantly written character study, with what is my favorite monologue in the entire series
Half Measures: incredibly momentous, and has one of the most shocking endings on the show
Box Cutter: tense, claustrophobic, and sets up the main conflict of Season 4 brilliantly
Hermanos: it's all about that flashback, baby!
Dead Freight: great premise/scenario that's completely set up and resolved within one ep, with a great climax, and an absolute gut punch of an ending
Blood Money: so much inter-character drama, and it shows the ramifications of an extremely long-in-coming revelation in one of the series' best scenes at the end
Ozymandias: do I really need to say anything else about this one?

And for fun, here's my rankings of the rest of the show as well (these are all chosen by memory, but they're my current opinions):

Fly almost made me quit watching the show, I had never been so annoyed or frustrated with a damn episode before that. Looking back...I mean I understood at the time the entire thing was a metaphor, it just seemed so HEAVY HANDED. Maybe I would enjoy it more now, but man, it was so frustrating at the time.

Yeah I also hate that episode and have no time for people who say it's one of the best in the series/an example of groundbreaking television. Ugh. Fuck Rian Johnson.

Enjoying the new episodes of Black Mirror right now. Still got one to go but so far the first two are way less ridiculous than the last season got and are more grounded in humanity with good, relatable characters in weirdly fucked up situations.

Anyone keeping up with Killjoys? The first few episodes were pretty lame, but I'm halfway through season 3 and I'm pretty damned impressed. You do have to overlook the endless barrage of mind numbingly obnoxious "jokes" that originated from shitty American procedural primetime shows and have now infected everything (even Discovery; speaking of, droneriot would hate Killjoys), but if you have an even passing interest in heavily serialized action/sci-fi with a "bigger picture" that unravels slowly ala Babylon 5 or Farscape, definitely give it a looksie. At this point I think I'd have to take Killjoys over Dark Matter, which is just what happened anyway. Dark Matter was a bit less bleak, but there's no question Killjoys wiped the floor with everything else.

Oh, and Hannah John-Kamen murry mee alredy plz

Fly was a great episode. It was filler made just to spend a little money they had left over and still managed to get in some great character moments.

Don't get the hate for Johnson. I've liked most stuff I've seen from him really. Looper was the only thing I thought was kinda mediocre. Loved Brick, "Ozymandias" and The Last Jedi.

Yeah, the other two after the first one aren't quite as good as the old BM episodes but it's a big step up from crap like "Crocodile" or whatever.
