I just finished it up a couple of weeks ago. I was so hooked. The show somehow achieved this despite it being horrible on almost every level. The acting, the story, the way the show was shot are all so bad compared to the shows that have aired since. I guess the reason I kept watching is because of the sense of 90s nostalgia it gave me - that and the music was sometimes chilling and sometimes just agonizingly cheesy (the swinging number used in every scene where someone is doing something devious). Yea, I was watching to see where the story went, but towards the end of the 2nd season I was really just watching to see how badly they fucked everything up. They didn't disappoint.

So siked for more Dale Cooper though. Damn fine cup of coffee etc. He said in an interview he expects a lot of the original cast to return.

I 100% endorse this. I watched it about 4 years ago and this sums it up for me as well.

Re: Good TV Shows?

I usually don't care about those "true crime" series but this new HBO mini-series/docu was really compelling and well done. The ending brought it to the whole new level of excitement.

Re: Good TV Shows?

"The Shadow Line" is excellent (one season, noir-ish, british) in pretty much every way

"Tyrant" seems very good (still haven't finished the season, but unless they fuck up completely the last 3 episodes...)

Another HBO docu worth a watch, didn't realize the magnitude of this huge scam. Cruise is such a moron, holy shit.

Re: Good TV Shows?

I liked The Shadow Line, good recommendation.

Marathon'd season 1 of Silicon Valley, fun series. Big laugh out loud moments every now and then.

In the middle of season 3 of The Americans. Acting's top notch from the lead cast.

A new tech thriller.
The pilot was directed by Niels Arden Oplev, who happened to direct the original and superior Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Re: Good TV Shows?

^ hearing decent things about that show, Prostigiator. I miss your posts in the movie thread, some pretty good movie reccos you got.

Anyone keeping up with the new True Detective? First two episodes were clunky, too much time spent on character backgrounds in a who-is-the-more-fucked-up-of-the-four and less investigating. Ray's cool. Without spoiling much, I hope last nights episode hopefully didn't completely seal one characters fate.

Halt and Catch Fire is pretty good, I don't usually watch TV at all, but a friend turned me onto it. Ended up binging for 8 hours on Netflix on a day off...

saw the first 4 episodes. seems pretty entertaining and relatively interesting, solid budget, solid acting, nice CGI. from what i read of the plot (unfortunately spoiling myself a bit the next 1-2 episodes) seems to follow the book close enough... worth a watch, imo

Re: Good TV Shows?

I'm in the same boat. I have all 7 but I watched up to episode 4 last night. The first episode took a bit of convincing to move on but the story's fresh, made the right choice of sticking on to see more. The whole 'I've studied this vs I'm a natural' situation is well played by both quirky characters. I like Childermass, hope there's more of him.

I was told by a big fan of how the spirit (bad guy) isn't supposed to behave or dramatized the way he's playing himself, so I'm definitely curious about the book, enough to have bought it.

Read about bad ratings, hope there's a second season or does the series end with the book?

from what i understand, the series covers the entirety of the book, but the author is in the process of writing a sequel, so who knows...

it gets bad ratings? bad ratings as in "not enough viewers" or "bad reviews"? because from what i've seen, most people who saw it liked it and average ratings and scores/reviews seem generally quite favourable. perhaps BBC isn't advertising it enough?

edit: let me know about the book, now i'm curious as well :)

Re: Good TV Shows?

"Humans" is also decent so far. And I cant believe Ive had the nerve to watch first two seasons of Under the Dome, it was atrocious from the beginning but the semi interesting premise kept me going. Snatched the first episode of season 3 and deleted it after 10 min. What a turd on all fronts, but it still has high ratings for some reason.

you watched the original swedish series of humans? called Äkta Människor (translated as Real Humans)http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2180271/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Loved that series can't wait for season 3. Have yet to watch this remake tho.

Re: Good TV Shows?

^ I didn't know that the UK version is not the original one. Now I am tempted to leave it behind and stick to the original Swedish one. It is probably a safe bet that its much better than its remake.

Re: Good TV Shows?

Yah after watching first 3 episodes of the remake, the swedish one is hands down waaaay better. Much funnier (tho the swedish humor might not translate well dunno), and the bots have a more realistic machine feel to them imo, less human more artificial but then thats just a matter of taste i guess. Recommend you watch the original very guuud...
