What TV series are you watching at moment?

Recommended Posts

Watching Game of Thrones. Bran looks like he ages about 10 years in the span of 1 season, its out of control.

Has anyone ever seen that documentary type show "I Shouldn't be Alive". Good show. It's basically about a bunch of people getting into survival type situations. It seems to be a theme thru the show that probably 2/3rds of the people end up in their situation due to their own crappy decision making and not so much people who prepared correctly but were just supremely unlucky. Though there are episodes like that too.

The show goes thru their survival situation with a pretty good re-enactment with some often talented actors. The show initially looks like one of those low budget discovery channel documentary type shows, but honestly most of the episodes are pretty good and some are great.

This channel has many of the episodes and this is one of the best:

watched the first episode of Black Mirror, surprisingly enjoyable. Probably won't watch the rest as I really disliked the last season, it feels like the TV equivalent of r/im14andthisisdeep. 

Also I remember watching the Shut Up and Dance episode with my then girlfriend back in 2017 and it was super uncomfortable lmao.

I revisited love death and robots last night and watched a few eps at random. I enjoyed it. Had very low expectations going in compared to the first time around and this did help things along a bit

Quite liked new Black Mirror. Don't understand all the negative comments I see... I mean, surely this season is not so dystopian and maybe it's not a welcome change of tone for some, but all 3 episodes were interesting to watch and enjoyable. Good bits of humour as well.

Goliath - Quite enjoying it, over halfway through series 1. I do like Billy Bob Thornton anyway, but he is the best character in this which I guess isn't unexpected. Surprised to see there's a second season, can't quite see where it'll go but I'll wait and find out.

Black mirror is nice and all but its always the brain implant / alternative reality upload consciousness thing.

Yeah, started watching this randomly a couple of weeks ago (good w/ busy life to have episodes that are only 17 mins long at max or whatever) . . . *shrugs* seems pretty enjoyable. Interesting blend of animation styles w/ short little sci-fi vignettes. Lot of these could be little snippets from episodes of something larger (that I might not watch but are great in small doses). Don't get the hate.

Same thing here - I . . . don't get the hate? Show is experimenting with diff things and changing it up in some places. . . Striking Vipers in particular felt was an interesting examination of gender identities/effect of tech on how we view these sorts of things. Dunno - if there had been 0 prior seasons of Black Mirror people would be shitting themselves over it, maybe just suffering under weight of its own expectations. . .

I wish I had stopped at the first ep of Black Mirror this season. It was still a B, B+ for me, but at least it was interesting. Andrew Scott was great in ep2 but it would have been a big wet fart without him and is basically an Emmy reel. I have no idea what to make of ep3. It was like a kids’ movie with swears.

I can't seem to settle on anything at the moment (probably because there's just too much to choose from)

So decided to finally watch The Sopranos (yep never watched it!!). Almost done the first season, and I'll definitely be sticking with it.

But it's not, and he's in it, and it's great. Why would you envision an impossible scenario to belittle a show or take away from the experience? (just curious, don't mean to be a dick)

Like, surely, the same thing could be said about anything – A would have been awful without B. Breaking Bad would have been boring without Jesse and his signature bitch, Stranger Things would have been a weird kid show without 11 and her story arc, and so on and so forth. That's the thing. Andrew Scott was in that episode and it was brilliant to watch.

That third episode was a load of horse shit and Brooker should be ashamed. He would have absolutely ripped on it when he was doing screenwipe if it had become the sensation that it has become and he didn't write it. He is now the black guy from Season 1 Episode 2.

An excellent thing to decide to watch. It'll get you to ponder the mysteries of life

Shane Meadows is back on Warp with The Virtues. Quite the gut punch as per usual. Also seems to have been a catharsis for Shane, exorcising his own demons via Stephan Graham's intense performance. Spoilery interview with Shane here where he bears quite a bit of his soul with us.

Breaking Bad was terrible and Smithereens was terrible.

He always was. That's my fave episode because of how meta that one is. That's basically Brooker's career and he is fully aware of it.

That Miley episode did fucking suck tho. Also, you can apparently get a tie-in tshirt on the NiN website. Great way to undermine your whole hamfisted message guys!

Apparently everyone is watching Chernobyl and it's currently the highest ranked show on IMDB. Can't wait to check it out.

oh my god it was so bad. It was like watching a Disney channel movie. The other two were decent enough but if I were to make a ranked list of episodes all three would be near the bottom. It was just a bad season overall.

Watched Fleabag based on your comments here. I enjoyed it! It had all the makings for a cringe show but it dodged all the bullets and I have to say it is one of the best TV shizznits of the last few years.

I am watching Handmaid's tale with the wife and it is as depressing as usual. Good cinematography tho, even if this does end up compromising the narrative somewhat

Fleabag was great, but was there just a little too many shots of her looking wryly at the camera? 

Caught up with the latest Black Mirror. Really enjoyed Striking Vipers. Great episode that had the euphoric, heady feeling I remember from watching some of the early episodes. Not too preachy or dystopian, more a fun and optimistic study of balancing a kink with normal life and making it work.

if you have to tell people how to behave at the site of the biggest nuclear accident, then we've already lost

Apparently he's referring to this. Jfc.

Found a nice summary in the comments: "Wow, people lost their lives, lost all of their belongings, were getting sick for years to come and now some chicks use it as a background for nudes, seeking Internet fame. This is wrong."
