Must say season 2 of Gotham has been shaping up very nicely.  Very nicely indeed!  The latest episode was a doozy!

Probably not ... it can be streamed from Starz (Starzplay) though.

Just finished season 1 and 2 of "Review" on comedy central.

The show is much deeper than the initial premise and it's both hilarious and depressing.

5 stars!

wasabi2k: Outlander Season 2 - finally finished Season 2 and I have to say the last 2 episodes were some of the most disturbing I have ever seen and I was affected/upset by it days later. Homosexual rape and torture along with psychological torment. It was really, truly upsetting. The victim is suicidal for most of the final episode before he has a heart to heart with his wife and then they cry and the happy music plays and he is back to his usual happy self. Jesus.




Technically there has only been one season so far (it was split into two parts). I watched the first half with my girlfriend who is obsessed with the books, but I didn't bother with the second half. I couldn't stand the incessant voice overs explaining to me what was happening on screen (as if I couldn't follow it by myself), or the quick flashbacks during episodes to comments made in previous scenes that were important to what is happening now (as if I couldn't remember).

I wanted to enjoy it because it is made by Ronald D. Moore, who was the show runner for Deep Space Nine and the Battlestar Galactica remake.

Not long finished watching the first season of Mr. Robot, was hooked from the beginning. And last night watched a doco called Back in Time, about the making and fans of Back to the Future. It was very good. Well worth watching.

Just finished Narcos.

My god it's good!  It had me hooked from day one.  Very immersive.  It was scary simply because it's based on a true story!

Having seen The Two Escobars I was a tad apprehensive about the series... but... wow, it's very well done!

Just seen the new Ash vs the Evil dead. It is based on the Evil Dead movies of the 1980's - 09's.

IMO, the show is crude, violent and gory. In other words .. perfect!

I will definitely be watching this series.

Bruce Campbell is back as Ash and it is directed by Sam Raimi. The same team from the movies.

I see it is filmed in New Zealand too.

Lucy Lawless has a regular spot and we will probably see a lot of well known hobbits and dwarves in the series.

Groovy!

Doesn't it just perfectly capture the experience that Sam Raimi created with his own genre of horror?  I really love this show.  It's equal parts gross and insanely funny.  Perfection!

Recently ran out of episodes of Teen Wolf, Orphan Black and My Boys. Have been watching Justified, Lost Girl and Suits lately. Enjoying all of them in their own ways.
