I've started Downton Abbey. I'm judging it against Upstairs, Downstairs. We'll see.

I like the Magicians on SciFi. For what its worth, the Blue Shield or whatever its called with Ray Liotta and Jennifer Lopez was fun, nothing too great, but I liked it.

If you have Netflix, River is excellent. Super good, I loved it.

On Amazon, Man in the High Castle was good. I also liked Bosch, I went on a Michael Connelly binge after marathoning both seasons.

Finally watched first two seasons of Agents of SHIELD. Was put off by the first couple episodes, but it really builds into something good.

Watched the first two episodes of Dark Matter. I don't plan on watching any more.

The third season of Shield is a mess I gave up on after enjoying the first two seasons.

somewhere along the line, between 5 and 3 years ago I reached the threshold of saturation with zombies. The last zombie thing I remember not being bored by was WWZ.

I went back through Gargoyles about 3 years ago. It's funny that back then I skipped over the medieval flashbacks, but now I wish they were longer. Sadly, the last season hasn't been released on DVD.

aye

the end of the word does fascinate me artistically, but the fact that so many creators are just using it to craft insane dystopian societies ... first of all it's a complete waste of a premise, bust mostly it's just horrifically dull

You used to get one decent grindhouse zombie flick every couple of years and maybe a few lame ones. Now they're everywhere...smashing down doors, pushing up floorboards, lurking in discount shopping malls, trying to eat our brains.

I realised what I said was not entirely true. I did watch and enjoy Z Nation. I liked that way they approached the story, a long story arch over what was primarily an action show and at no point did it degrade into a zombie infested soap opera like Walking Dead did.
I also enjoyed the first few eps of iZombie but once the novelty wore off I lost interest.

The next series is going to be interesting, as Stephen Fry has stepped down and Sandi Toksvig is going to be the new host. I'd like to see Fry as a contestant to see how well he does.

Shades of Blue has Jennifer Lopez and that guy from that movie.

Not The Nine O'Clock News on Youtube. I can only get it at work but I download them.

I finished watching Manhattan, a non historically accurate drama based on the development of the atomic bomb. It was great. 2 seasons, 23 episodes total.

Happy Valley was great. I never saw the first season, watched both seasons (12 episodes total) back to back, fantastic work.

I recently finished The Prisoner.

I was lucky, because it's well known enough for me to have wanted to see it, but not popular enough any more for me to have known any spoilers.

Worth watching, although the finale did have a heavy air of "Oh dear, how do we wrap this up?"

The Man in the High Castle. It drags. I'm at episode 6 of 10 and everything I have seen could have been better told in three episodes, four tops.

As someone who has witnessed more than one insurgency in his life, the story is very thought provoking, or it ought to be.

i think they're kind of hemmed-in by the actual history, even though most of what we know about ragnar is based on rumour and myth rather than fact

his brother and sons were quite remarkable too, so there's plenty of material for many more seasons

I wan't to start watching The 100. The first 2 seasons are on Netflix and it's been renewed for a third season. Can't remember what channel it's on. I don't recall it being a Netflix original.

The third season is currently airing but I think it's tanking. There's going to be a fourth season though.
