Watched all Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt over easter and started Orange Is The New Black last weekend. 
First series I've watched (besides Top Gear) since  NZ TV screwed up "Alias" in 2002-3 and Futurama finished.

Tonight's CSI: Cyber looks to be a real doozy. Some evil hacker has come up with a way to program a remote computer to burst into flames.

Just watched the final episode of "Married... With Children". It has only taken me three years watching the occasional episode, but I got through all 259 of them.

Still stacks up quite well against modern television, and is better IMO than all the crime and super hero nonsense on these days. It's a pity the show never had a proper final episode, as it was cancelled between seasons.

Far from the worst 1987 brought us... "My Two Dads" and "Full House" are both good examples, and for those who haven't heard, the latter is making a comeback as "Fuller House". Have mercy!

Bloodline on Netflix NZ.  Up to episode five and enjoying it.  The Florida Keys really look great on my trusty plasma at 1080p. I see this is available in 4K in the States at least, not sure if it is in NZ.

Great show.
Have you seen '8 simple rules'? Very funny and has the most moving episode I have ever seen on tv that was made after John Ritter died.

Yes, I watched "8 Simple Rules [For Dating My Teenage Daughter]". I don't recall that episode specifically, but I do recall I quite liked the direction it took after John Ritter died, with the addition of the James Garner and David Spade.

Smiley's People - the old show from the 80s with Alec Guiness in it.

Very slow paced by modern standards, but still a good watch. About half way through it.

Currently binging on The Returned, about 5 episodes in and enjoying it. Smashed through daredevil last week, didn't think it was going to be for me but i was wrong, awaiting season 2, along with the next season of the Affair, the missing, oitnb and broadchurch.
Other weekly viewing: GoT, Bates motel. Have given up on Orphan black and the following this season, just lost interest part way through.
Going to give twinpeaks a go after the returned, heard good things and has excellent ratings, a little concerned that it won't have aged well but we will see.

On Netflix went and watched the first few episodes of Cheers and Mash.  Really funny and well written comedy.  So much better than today's rubbish.

I'm a big Python fan, but this was just camp stupidity.

Watched the pilot for Longmire last night. Very good - will try the next episode and see if it maintains or improves.

Watched Happyish on Soho. A masterclass in how to take a good comedy actor and give him a poorly written script. Could do better.
