Re: Good TV Shows?

About halfway through the first season of Fraiser. Took a bit of effort to get into but it's just such good mid-thinking-level comedy. Excellent to unwind at the end of a long day whilst not succumbing to completely brainless TV.

Peppered with sincere moments too, and Niles is such a great character haha.

Re: Good TV Shows?

^excellent pilot.

i'm guessing someone already mentioned it , but another glorification for:
Broen - scandinavian crime/drama series with Kim Bodnia.

big recommendation for french supernatural drama - Les revenants (2012) - 8 ep.fucking great
and
UK mystery drama The Bletchley Circle (2012 )

Re: Good TV Shows?

I watched Bron / Broen and Les Revenants on Odium's recommended, both pretty good, the former edges it's way to being better.

New Hannibal episode was the weakest this season but it made sure the plot moved forward - Will being open about his feelings for Hannibal. Curious about his new patient, I'm guessing he'll use her as a pawn somehow. Good mirroring situation with Peter, didn't expect it to go down the way it did.

F1 is in Shanghai this weekend and I caught up on the Driver's press conference, Tech Director's press conference, FP1 - 3 and qually. Race's tomorrow, expected to be dry conditions ... so it may bring RB's chances to take the fight to Mercedes and Williams aren't that far behind the grid (car works better in the dry), so here's to hoping the race is good tomorrow. Bahrain was amazing, one of the few races in recent years I watched a second time.

Legit is definitely growing on me. I wasn't too thrilled with the first episode, but it immediately picked up on the following ones. Episode where Jim gives his buddies tips on scoring girls is amazing.

Hell yeah, one of my favorites. I actually own seasons 4-11 lol. It actually gets better after season 2 or whenever Kelsey Grammer got rid of that stupid half mullet thing he had going on, but then started to dip in quality around the last few seasons or so.

Re: Good TV Shows?

Got around watching the season finale of Vikings last night. This season wasn't too bad, if anything it's more graphic than season 1. Ecbert reaching out to other Gods or knowledge was interesting to watch, Athelstan's whole plot didn't interest me, we see less of Ragnar this season but more of Byorn, Floki, Siggy and Horik. Lagertha is still my favorite character on the show, she's grown so much as a person. Overall I thought it flowed slower than season 1 but decent enough to keep my interest in the next season. Not sure how historically accurate the show still is.

I gotta watch the last aired episodes of Hannibal, Mad Men and Game Of Thrones.

Re: Good TV Shows?

I am on a fence about where the last two episodes of Hannibal are turning the whole storyline. I really dislike it, but at the same time I can see some serious potential in it.

Anyway, the new season of Louie has started great imo. What else, oh, the new season of "In the Flesh" has just started if anyone saw the first one. You are not missing much, but its solid when you have to kill an hour.

Shiizakana is the last episode I watched. Will's changed a lot but I wonder if it's all a play or set up to lure Hannibal in, like the conversation he had with Jack while they were fishing. I was surprised Will mentioned what his old therapist said to him, maybe under the same ruse to get closer to him, to get him to share any secrets. That whole Margot - Will conversation was cool to witness, she's seems to be a very smart girl.

Re: Good TV Shows?

Fargo has been entertaining thus far.

Shoutout to Vadge for the Silicon Valley rec as well, show hits the spot.

New season of Louie started exceptionally well, the first episode was hysterical, the second was just great too.

Re: Good TV Shows?

i thought the second Louie ep was even better than the first, good stuff.

according to his email, the next episode will be similar to those two and previous seasons, but then the rest of the season consist of stories that span multiple episodes - a six part one, followed by a three part one and then ending with a two part story. very curious about how the six episode story will play out. also glad that there's two episodes every week.

just finished it. shit was great. i love the fucking score, i looked forward to it everytime i watched a new epsiode, its beautiful.

if you haven't started watching it yet, then what the fuck are you doing?
if no country for old men and fargo (movie) had a baby, this would basically be it. lots of quirky humor and minnesota accents, and lots of tense scenes. so many scenes from the show are inspired plucked straight out of no country for old men. it's awesome.

Re: Good TV Shows?

Those 2 episodes about Louie's past weren't funny but just real stuff like most of the scenarios he plays out on screen is tangible. The final monologue in episode 3 with the fat girl was cool. I need to hit up episodes 13 and 14 with Pamela.

I didn't find much humor in the new season of Louie. Kind of bored me tbh. Last two eps weren't that funny.
Pamela is just annoying and unfunny.

I was excited for the premiere and DVR'd it. I thought it was pretty good. Definitely will continue.

True Detective was so good.

Lil late, but I finally started game of thrones bank up. I'm still in the first season.

And after watching the leftovers, i don't think I'll want to continue much farther.. Shit is weird, not in a good way.
