Anyone seen Wayward Pines?

Very unique and keeps you wondering.

Yes very interesting and unusual scifi/action/drama

Another tv show, Season 2 of "Fear the Walking Dead" was very good. I really liked how much of it took place in Mexico and had Spanish as well as English. Tensions between US and Mexican people based on class and culture were interwoven into the drama of the show. It's almost as if trying to escape from the zombie apocalypse was analogous to why people try to cross the border into the US in search of a better situation, and I liked how the show tried to elicit an empathy for the challenges that were faced.

The first two seasons of Homeland were good.

Haven't started on the third season yet.

I don't think anyone has mentioned Grimm yet?  I'm loving it so far.  Loosely based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales.

Finished watching "Stranger Things" on Netflix. Am now done with "Inspector Morse" and am onto "Inspector Lewis."

Have you seen the "Endeavour" series?  It's about the young detective Morse.  I think it's even better than the Morse series and the Lewis series.  Highly recommend.

No, I haven't seen "Endeavour" yet. I thought I should watch "Lewis" first. Does it make a difference, i.e. spoilers, if I go into "Endeavour" now?

Nope--wouldn't make any difference, except that, in my opinion, Endeavour is so much better--watching Lewis after Endeavour might be a bit of a let down.  But it's all good stuff.  :)

I loved that, I'm so sad that it ended recently!

I watched the first episode of "Westworld". Was an interesting sci-fi situation. Eager to see where the story goes.

Will finish TWD someday. I watched a season or so and got tired of the gore. I always do. I liked the survival story.

On episode 2 of Black Mirror.

Just wow. The frightening thing is, it's all happening in real time right now.

Yes Black Mirror is great, all of the episodes!

I was watching Bill Nye Saves the World, and ho hum it's just not that great. The science is a bit too basic for me, not that startling.

I forgot to mention Hannibal which was one of my favorite shows. I freaking loved Hannibal. I really have a thing for anti-hero esque/villainous characters

Walter White
Hannibal
Omar Little
Captain Flint.


I also recently finished Sneaky Pete and Newsroom to the recommendation of people here.

Sneaky Pete was entertaining but underwhelming and I kind of really hated Bryan Cranston's cliché rehashed villain. I can't believe someone okayed that and if he wasn't brilliant in Breaking Bad and a part of my Malcolm in the Middle loving child hood, this would make it very hard to like him. He played this role by the book. I still cringe thinking about it.

Newsroom - Newsroom was overly optimistic, at times preachy but it strangely keeps it together to be quite entertaining. It at times really does come of as a bunch of self-righteous nonsense, but there's a part of you that still remains on their side. It also has this moments where it just does things that I love to see in television. It also doesn't take itself too seriously and neither should you.

Elementary - we are halfway through season 2 and it is really good.  Love the guy who plays Sherlock in it.

Just started the new season of Doctor Who... not impressed with this series so far, but maybe I'm setting the bar too high for a show about an old man in a magic box who fights people in rubber monster suits?
