It went from really interesting to meh quickly. I feel like they don't know where it's going, and the "bad guy" is set up to be creepy just to be creepy.

Seems like there are a lot of shows getting highly praised based on the first episode or two and then they lose the script, literally and figuratively. Maybe all the sales and creative genius is spent on getting the pilot picked up and once that gets achieved they really have no idea what to do from there or how to keep the same quality level.

I watched a few of the final Season 3 episodes of "House of Cards" at the prodding of my girlfriend, and man is that show "Da Schiznit"! Now I'm binge watching S01 & S02. to catch up. Spacey is God. :mrgreen:

Yeah, really enjoyed House Of Cards, they did a great job with that one.

Mr. Robot was better in this last episode, nice little flip there at the end.

Anyone else notice in Dark Matter that they used a launch pad to dock to space station.
I wonder what vst is required to do this surely not native devices

Anybody care to spoil True Detectives for me? I watched the whole thing and am still not sure what the plot was exactly and the characters' attempt to explain it in dialogue just made it even more confusing. :?

I liked the second to last episode but felt the last episode dragged on.

I still like some animated shows (South Park, Family Guy, Archer) but every time a new highly praised animated series comes out I have concern that it’s going to be of the Adult Swim variety where you either have to be on an inordinate amount of drugs or have an undiagnosed but treatable brain disorder in order to enjoy it. BoJack Horseman seems to fit that category. :?

but yeah, you have to be somewhat of a deranged fuck to enjoy all the shows you listed there beats. the key is admitting you have a problem. :x :P

Narcos on Netflix is pretty good. Some fact mixed with some speculation about Pablo Escobar.

I got bored of TD with the last few episodes I was getting on my phone half the time. HOW CAN AN HOUR LONG SHIW FEEL LIKE IT'S LITERALLY 2 HOURS LONG. They need to break the 'pause for a minute before speaking your line' rule. I had to ask if we were still in the same episode or the next because it felt like forever and only a half hour passed.

Beats, the high praise had some merit, lots of critics / press get to see whatever episodes are available, depending on the show the whole season may already be done.

I could use more Archer. I'm liking Mr.Robot. Well I'm not sure if i like the family twist that's happened;like all of a sudden it turned into classic soap opera mode.

On paper Scream Queens doesn’t sound like anything anybody on here would like or something they’d get stuck watching with their girlfriend/wife, but it’s actually quite good and funny. IMO. It’s almost Netflix/HBO quality. Almost. At least give the pilot a spin.
