Been watching Bloodline, wow that is great viewing, it takes a few episodes for it to come together but its worth continuing to watch. Watched the first ep of Twin Peaks last night, it definitely is showing its age but the story has got my attention, although i feel ive seen it all before in other shows since then.

Mr Robot.

Just watched the pilot and it looks promising.

It's underground, hacking type series. But, it is much better done than anything else I can recall in this line.

The main character is particularly well acted. He has the perfect psycho, strung-out demeanor for the part.



Thanks, hadn't heard of this one. Looking forward to the return of Halt and Catch Fire.

Highway Thru Hell. This started playing on TV3 Saturday nights, a few weeks ago. I've enjoyed it so have watched all three seasons on YouTube now.

Finally got into watching Orange Is The New Black, love it!. Playing catch up to watch the first 2 seasons before season 3 airs on Netflix next month.

Should've listened to my partner ages ago when I was told how good the series was lol

Yep. Looking forward to seeing HCF again too.

I am bit surprised it is returning.

The end of the series looked like the end of the story.

I think it starts in the US this weekend.

I watched the pilot last night and really enjoyed it. It could go either way from here though. I'll be keeping up with it in any case.

Yes. I agree with that.

It could easily become 'Fight Club' or 'Life on Mars' for hackers.

But, I do see a fair bit of attention to quality in it so far.

I am hopeful.

Also, I see they have put the pilot on Youtube.

It is region locked, so a VPN etc. is needed.

Full series starts around 24th June I think.

Agreed! There are a lot of ways they could take the plot. I like it a lot so far. I do get a little perturbed with the 'unreliable narrator' thing tho. Hopefully it won't disappoint. I'm glad the OP mentioned it or I would never have found it.

I want to see where they go with HaCF next! Season one was a lot of fun.

We're nearly finished Justified series over our free trial subscription on Lightbox. Lightbox on VF VDSL did a fair bit of buffering (compared to none on Netflix), and Lightbox app on Samsung TV is also a bit pants compared to Netflix, but we loved the series!

So far we're nearly half way through the last season. It has the feel of Breaking Bad throughout, similar sort of tension, and the verbose dialogue in southern drawl is just fantastic. 10/10!

SHARK on BBC iPlayer. Excellent if you enjoy true nature documentary style programmes. Incredible film work and fascinating to watch in High Def.

There are 3 episodes up at the moment and well worth a little "binge viewing" time.

It certainly refocuses your mind on the value of TV programming (or lack thereof).

Looks like some of the SciFi programs I watched on Prime are now going behind the Sky paywall to the Zone channel.  Oh well back to Channel Internet..

Been watching Parks and Recreation (available on Lightbox).

Missed it before for some reason, but a few GIFs on IMGUR persuaded me to give it a try.

Absolutely brilliant, and just gets better and better with each season.

sorta like 'the office' (filmed documentary style). It's not quite the same awkward cringe comedy, but has a similar feel to it.  A bit more slapstick, but hilarious.  The Chris Pratt character is absolute gold, as is Ron Swanson.

Catching up on Outrageous Fortune (on 3Now) Just because back in the day before Freeview I had no reliable TV3 Reception. 
UnReal (Lightbox)  Reality Drama focusses on the drama behind what goes on behind a dating tv show. 
Between (Netflix) Sorta like Under the Dome with a different storyline with each main character, Really Good! 

Really good series coming soon on TV!

I just started Parks and Rec a couple of weekes ago.  A third of the way through season 2 and loving it so far. Tom is hilarious as well.

Peter Kay's Car Share on iPlayer, I'd been eyeing it with some suspicion for a while but it turned out to be very funny. And Moone Boy season 3, also jolly good.
