What TV series are you watching at moment?

Tried to watch the new X-men show "Legion" but it immediately lost me when the scene in which the "dream-builder" mutant performed telepathic communication on a broken reel to reel to find clues about the protagonist. It expects the viewer to believe that the reel-to-reel had a brain and eyes and witnessed what happened in the room before being smashed to pieces. I couldn't suspend my disbelief on that one and stopped watching. In addition to that, the show relies heavily on stealing storyline elements from Inception, Mr. Robot (most notably Mr. Robot) and 12 Monkeys and characters themselves are very flat and uninteresting for the most part. I felt like the director was trying to make the lead character sympathetic, but he comes off as overwhelmingly narcissistic and having a god delusion (goes with the schizophrenia diagnosis at least).

 

It's getting more difficult to find anything worth investing the time into watching anymore. :(

Heh, I thought Legion was decent, they had some fun with the concept and took it pretty far out there. Superhero stuff is straight up nonsense and suspension of disbelief anyway, so little things like that didn't bother me much.

although it starts pretty ok, at the end of the series, when they have a fight/war, it gets pretty superhero silly... lets see where the second season takes us, but it's better to keep my hopes down...

i remember having a huge urge to re-watch the first episodes but when i did it i actually lost interest...

Watched the episode "San Junipero" of Black Mirror with my conservative (in some ways) family and it was a bit awkward. It's the episode that centers on a lesbian relationship. Probably would have enjoyed it more if I watched it alone. Thought the set design was quite cool, like a lot of Black Mirror.

Channel Zero: Butchers Block - Not too bad for the SyFy channel. Some creepy moments for "TV horror". Elements are borrowed from other films many would know, but with it's own spin. What American Horror Story should be as an anthology "horror" series. And no Evan Peters is an added bonus.

s03 of inside no. 9 is so fucking gooooood, best thing on tv right now!!! not just imho. take that!

ep3 is so twisted and ep4 is funny as hell, so well written and rich.

 

I find that show a bit hit and miss. When it hits it's great. Reece Shearsmith is great.

 

Season 2.2 probably my fave of what I have seen.

i felt the same in the 1st 2 seasons... have you seen the 3rd season? i'm only missing the final episode, the first 5 were all very good but 3 and 4 really stand out, at least for me... apparently there's already a 4th season... they're both really versatile actors... sometimes the episodes start and i don't even recognise them, the makeup characterization is also top notch...

Ive seen bits of all 4 seasons. Depending whether im on netflix or iPlayer and which one grabs me at the time.

Need to watch psychoville too. Ive only seen one episode which was kind of hitchcocks rope style.

Never really got into League of Gentlemen though. Maybe I'll give it another go.

Reese Shearsmith is also great in vic and bobs Catterick series.

And in serious role as a wife killer (true story) called the widower.

i just quit brooklyn 99, i guess it stands up there with the past material but i must have grown bitter or something, i don't find it funny anymore, i actually find it despicable and annoying... don't know how last year i had such good laughs with this show...

i also loved the 1st 2 seasons of bojack horseman but right now it's getting so dramatic that i don't find any enjoyment at all in watching it... did i grew up or something? shit, is this what's like being old?

i also couldn't stand vice principals 2nd season, had mixed feeling with the 1st season but could't keep up with this new one...

 

anyone here seen UTOPIA??? i watched the 1st episode and it was quite entertaining but it seems like it's the kind of show that will go downhill in the future episodes...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2384811/?ref_=nv_sr_1

really like that actor that's also featured in ben weathley's kill list...

+1 for Utopia! Loved the soundtrack too. I was a little gutted when it was cancelled but I could see it going downhill a bit after season 2.

 

Finished Altered Carbon. It was alright, totally agree the sister subplot was garbage. I don't mind hammy acting/writing with gore and nudity, would have made for a fun pulp cyberpunk detective show or something. Instead it couldn't really sit on a theme - pulp detective, introspective cyberpunk, low budget sci-fi shot in some forest. A mess overall but the ideas were interesting enough to keep me coming back.
