I originally posted this on Furiant, but i finished season 1 recently.

 

The Expanse.

 

Must say, i loved this series, apart from the ending, which gave about as much closure as any of the other 10 episodes - i had to double check as i couldn't believe it was the last in the series. It has been picked up for a second season, but still, it wasn't a cliff hanger, it just didn't finish.

 

Really solid sci-fi with a decent plot (from a fairly well know sci fi novel series), decent actors, decent effects and a nice ambience.

 

I would heartily recommend it for any fan of space opera, or sci fi in general.

Yeah, i'm replying to my own thread.

 

Agent Carter - season 2.

 

Started off a bit shakily IMO. But by episode 3, it's starting to take off. I love that the lead isn't a stick thin model. I like the mid 40's period setting. I like Howard Stark in it. I'm not so keen on Jarvis, who is a bit cartoonish in his behaviour. The plot is building and looking interesting. Worth a look.

Been catching up watching Colony on USA.  I'm a fan of Carlton Cruse (LOST, Bates Motel) and this series has started off and been pretty compelling.  The most notable thing so far that I have to bitch about is the CGI but it's a basic cable TV show so it is what it is.  Looking forward to what they do with it.

Better Call Saul..... I love it. I loved Breaking Bad. I am loving getting to see more behind Saul Goodman. Bob Odenkirk is hilarious and great in a dramatic role. Also, It doesn't hurt that they film it in my hometown.

Season one is on Netflix, and you can see the new episodes the day on Netflix too.

I liked BCS more than i thought i would. It is the epitome of a tragic comedy, excellently handled by Odenkirk, and really good to see Mike's role get another lease of life.

Yes sir!  I'm picking up things watching it again that I'm not sure I realized the first time around.

HBO GO app streamed to Chromecast from my phone ... awesome!

Started watching Marvel's Lucky Man. A very different sort of Marvel series. Based in London and starring an Irishman. Gotta say, i'm liking it so far. A cop with a gambling addiction gets given a bracelet that makes him luckier. But every time he uses it, something bad happens elsewhere.

It's by no means first class, but i look forward to each episode.

Just started watching Stranger Things on Netflix.  About 3 episodes in.  It's OK.  I heard about how mind blowing and awesome it is, but so far it's been kinda... meh.  Hopefully there's a payoff.

Stranger Things wasn't bad, it was enjoyable but not as good as everyone is claiming it to be. 

Currently rewatching all of Star Trek again. Almost done with TOS then watching the TOS movies and then onto TNG.

Got Star Wars Rebels series 1 on DVD, gotta say it's actually pretty good despite being a cartoon.

Finished episode 6 of Stranger Things, it's picking up finally.  Took a little too long.  Although a lot of the characters are so insufferable I'm rooting for the villain.

We started the same thing in January.  We're in season 6 now.  The first 3 or 4 seasons were pretty good, but man after season 5 or so it's really awful.  Only a handful of good episodes each season.  It's become a chore to watch and unfortunately the kids always want to watch it

Limitless on netflix was fun.  Of course I like shows about drugs.  Marco Polo season 2 was Meh.  The Last Kingdom and Vikings were both OK.  Ballers is fun.  Vice Principles is funny.  Brooklyn 9-9 is also funny as hell.

Limitless was a movie, right?  Are they connected?

Am watching New Girl with the mrs.. I don't see every episode, but it's surprisingly funny.

Saw the first season of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. Ambivalent about that, but it did take me back to Gary Sinise's CSI:NY. Saw bits'n'pieces of that when it originally aired, as it usually was on very late. So got the 1st 5 seasons of that to begin with. When I'm done with those 9 seasons, surely Criminal Minds & Vikings should have racked up a considerable amount of episodes to fall back on. :) (I read Thomas Gibson has been fired of CM, that sucks.)

Also have The Hollow Crown waiting and am indeed quite interested in Lucifer. Looks like it's a hoot.

I could not make it through all the seasons of Criminal Minds.  The show is depressing and some of the actors annoying.
