    Started Fargo Season 2. It's different from Season 1, but I really like it as well.
    Also watched the first 3 episodes of True Detective. Also really enjoy it so far.

    Yes, it feels very much like something by the Coens but the story is something entirely new. Not quite as dark and dry, though. But that doesn't bother me much.
     
    Carrie Hopewell: The first season of True Detective is amazing!
    GwenRaiden: Ooh. True Detective gets really good as it goes on. (Season 1). I'm kinda obsessed with it.

    Really, really enjoying Citizen Z. I'm not a big zombie fan but I love Roberta Warren. Great female protaganist. And the humour hits me every time. Having George RR Martin play himself as a zombie, brillant, having an election with one of the candidates in a donald trumpesque wig while his opponent calls him "tiny fingers", still giggling.

    Currently wrapping up Sopranos season 4. I've always thought this was the weakest season, but it picks up at the end. Season 3 and Season 6B are definitely my favorites.

    I'm halfway through Season 4 of Supernatural. FINALLY enjoying it. They've found an arc and compelling problems for both of the brothers. I'm not sure I'd still recommend it to anyone because I found the first two seasons of the show to be a real grind. I couldn't have cared less about their Dad. He was always disappearing at convenient times without proper reasons. And then their Daddy issues were sort of tedious because I didn't actively like the brothers (the actors are charming enough.) Plus man do the women on the show get a terrible rap. Either being objectified or murdered or made into demons. Very icky.

    Sometime in Season 3 though they managed to turn the Deans sexism and rampant machismo into a foible. which made it more interesting than tedious. And then the show became incredibly Constantine in Season 4 and I'm now having a good time. Bumpy ride though.

    Started watching Humans and The Good Fight.

    Also-
    Breaking Bad s2
    Grace and Frankie s3
    Ru Paul's Drag Race s9
    Nashville s5 (thank God they're taking a mid-season hiatus, it's been horrendously sad!)

    Also thinking of checking out The People VS. OJ now that it's on Netflix. Can't say it appealed to me, but people keep raving about it, so I might give it a shot.

    Season 3 of Better Call Saul. Well, one episode. So far so good. I got a proper laugh out of that opening scene. Poor conflicted Jimmy. :(

    Ha. Yeah. He was really struggling. I was surprised he pointed him out. But then I was even more surprised at his outburst. But then he caught a heart attack over it! I am wondering now, if during the course of the show that we will not only bear witness to the birth of Saul but also the rebirth of him. That deffo was Saul speaking in the opener. That would be kinda cool, in a way. To see Jimmy turn into Saul at the same time we watch Gene turn into him.

    Yeah, it's deep stuff. Jimmy McGill is disappearing fast. I was like "YESSSSSS!" when he told the kid to say nothing. Also, I find it funny that so many people complain about the long scenes with almost no dialogue and "lack of" exposition, eg Mike and his hunt for the tracking device and his plans thereafter, when I could probably watch two hours of that for the acting and cinematography alone, lol. I figured out what he was doing pretty quickly; it was a great insight into the mind of Mike and how he is so good at what he does. That slow, methodical sequence was brilliance! Very Coenesque. It's such good tv for, y'know, tv.

    People are idiots that only want "action" and don't like "boring" stuff.
