Just watched the first episode of The Boys last night due to some of you guys raving about it on here. It certainly did not disappoint. I'm off work this friday and I already cant wait to watch a few more episodes!

The Boys has been surprisingly good. Karl Urban is great. Most of the acting is good. The concept is great, and the writing has a sense of humor to it.

Loved it as well.  Had a bit of a Watchmen vibe to it but far better overall.  Very different look for Urban.  And getting Simon Pegg in there was a nice bonus for the ST nerds among us.

The Boys is awesome and I can't wait for season 2....BUT....

 

Expanse season 4 is back in December,  and Amazon has already announced Season 5 is a go. Get on board if you love sci fi. Best sci fi show ever. Yes. EVER.  I loved the BSG reboot,.but The Expanse is the sh*t. Here's a taste from season 2

Season 2 of The Terror is 3 episodes in.

Pretty creepy.  Following in the footsteps of season 1-- history mixed with fiction mixed with horror, Japanese internment camps after Pearl meets up with an evil spirit.

Been bringing The Last Kingdom on Netflix....I've read all of the books by Cornwell, but I had forgotten how good the show is, and had only seen the first season. Season 2 was great, and just starting up with Season 3......with Season 4 airing next year. 

 

Such a good show. Its funny, after reading the books, I never would have pictured the actor they picked as Uhtred of Bebbanburgh, but he really nails the character.

Just finished Season 2 of "Mindhunter"; a great show. No other show except may be "The Americans" has ever done as good  a job with the soundtrack bringing you back to a specific time in America. 

"The Righteous Gemstones" so far is pretty good. 

New season of "Peaky Blinders" is now available if you live in the UK and have BBC1.Won't hit Netflix until October.

Holy crap, no idea Season 2 Mindhunter is out.

Season 1 was great, it is now in the queue. 

Thanks!

Finished  "The Spy" in 2 days. Sacha Baron Cohen can act beyond saying "Very Nice!".

Finished Mindhunter. 

Great second season with one caveat.

The guys who played Manson and Son of Sam and Wayne Williams were great. The whole Williams investigation was some of the best TV this year. Williams was so cocky and arrogant, fantastic acting. 

My one caveat is the curveball they dropped in with Tench’s son. 

Didn’t happen in real life and changed the direction of Tench’s character and his investigative approach. 

Wasn’t necessary.

They wanted a compelling B story, but the show didn't need it. His son being special was enough without ...that.

The lesbian scenes were compelling enough.

The Boys 

5 episodes in, really digging it. And this is coming from someone who only saw 4 or 5 superhero movies since Nolan Batmans because I genuinely dislike the movies and can't stand the fad.

yeah its upsetting with how long some of these seasons are apart from each other. I almost feel like I need watch the whole damn series again to remember the important details since it's been so long.

Finished The Boys last month. Fun take on the annoying and way too big comic book culture of the 2010s.

Watched the latest season of Shameless on Netflix. Always a fun show but it's starting to wear on me a bit. But then I started season 2 of MindHunters in the middle of last week, and have essentially lost all track of time since.

Just finished season 2 on my commute in to the city this morning. Wow. What an amazing season. Haven't felt so compelled to binge a show like that since season 1 of True Detective.

This show is absolutely fascinating. Not knowing much - if any - of the source material, I didn't realize that the entire Atlanta storyline actually happened, and therefore had no idea how it would end. The epilogue which confirmed all of the political/bureaucratic BS is extremely disheartening. The season had it's share of fantastic acting (Manson, Kemper, Wayne Williams), lots of comic relief mixed in throughout the season, a terrible but fascinating subplot affecting a main character, some eye candy, and just a ton of suspense/intrigue.

watchmen is awesome. only one episode but dang give it a shot

I was skeptical about them taking Moore and just running with it, but it really feels how that's how things would have played out in the world that the book takes place in. Moore's work is an alternate history that feels all too real, and the show feels like exactly the same thing. I feel like the season has to culminate with Dr. Manhattan coming back, right?

that would be awesome. everything about episode 1 was done extremely well.  I was little skeptical about it as well but so far so good

The Mandalorian teasers are better than all 3 of the new SW movies. I cannot wait for this shot.
