Finally got around to Penny Dreadful.....good last season, but yeah, as for the ending, I'm with you Kevin.....was hoping for a bit more, but it was time for that to end.

Immediately started The Americans and made it through 11 of the first 13 episodes in three days.....what a great show.....can't wait to see those last two episodes. I was going to say this is one of the most underappreciated shows on TV, but it was actually nominated today for best drama, so can't really say that anymore. I believe both Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys(sp?) were nominated as well....good for them. I also never knew how much I cared about Martha's well-being until right around episode 6.....who knew?

Finally watched the last half season of Hell on Wheels.....they should've just stopped it after the first half ended.

Also, anyone else watching Outcast.....or trying to....get on with it already!?! I'm going to give it about one more episode, but it's horrendously slow.

Did anyone watch The Night Manager or The Preacher on AMC? I have that on DVR and am having a hard time getting around to them....wanted to see if it was worth it.

Watched one episode of the GFE, Girl Friend Experience and debating whether I want to go ahead and watch more. Lead girl is hot which led to the discovery of what rock-n-roll royalty she has in her blood lines.

Night Of episode was pretty intense. Will see what the rest holds for it.

I enjoyed the night manager. I hope the protagonist (Loki in the Thor movies) is the next James Bond.

I have the preacher on DVR. Have not watched it yet.

Watching season 4 House of Cards, Flipping Out, season 2 Marco Polo, and a bunch of UFC right now.

Just finished the recent season of Outlander also.

Need to check out Night Of when I'm not half-drunk and it's not midnight.

Stranger Things on Netflix has been quite good through three eps.

Still watching Ballers.....it's still a cheesy Entourage knock off, but I keep sticking around.

Gave Vice Principals a go. It had a couple laugh out loud moments.

Finished 3 seasons of Peaky Blinders on Netflix. It's up there with House of Cards as far as a must watch show.

Right now, it's only Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

I'd love to find another show or two, have tried a little.

Last Chance U on Netflix is great. Some of those guys are complete morons and you need subtitles to even understand them half the time, but pretty interesting look into JUCO Football.

Just watched the first two episodes of Stranger Things. Good stuff.

The Night Of kind of limped across the finish line over the last three episodes but certainly wasn't a waste of time.

Looking forward to Westworld.

I'm stuck at Episode 5 of Stranger Things. Haven't felt compelled to finish. I'm with you on Night Of. Started out with huge promise so I was fairly disappointed by the end.

Just finished Season 1 of Mr. Robot. Don't get it....at all...horrible acting and even worse writing. I mean that whole prison breakout thing....just stupid. Won't be touching Season 2.

Anybody else watch Westworld? I'm in. Need to go back and watch it again though because I dozed off for a few minutes when Anthony Hopkins' character was interviewing Delores' father and I'm assuming there was some important stuff in there.

I've been binge watching Suits on FireTV. It's one of the funnest and cleverly written TV shows that I have watched.

Question?

Next on my possibilities is Mad Men.

Is Mad men worth watching? I Just want some advice, so I won't waste my time starting it.

I thought it was great. Did you watch season 1 of True Detective? If not, knock that off first. Only 8 episodes.

Mad Men is great, but it is a very character driven show moved by awesome performances with some comedy sprinkled in, not by plot devices or thrills.
