Here are the shows I'm currently watching:

 

Big Bang Theory

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Blacklist

The Orville

Killjoys

Dark Matter

Archer

 

 

 

I've been watching The Orville--Seth MacFarlane's take on the Star Trek universe. Like the original, it has been taking on big social problems with a nice mix of humor and drama. I suggest giving it a shot.

 

I can't believe SyFy just renewed Killjoys but cancelled Dark Matter after 3 seasons. Joe Mallozzi had a 5 season vision for the show and now he'll have to finish it up in comic book form. Lame. Dark Matter is so much better of a show than Killjoys. (Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy Killjoys... it's just that Dark Matter was so much better.)

 

I just finished season 10 of BBT.  I can't believe they've gone 10 seasons and it is still funny.  I'm looking forward to more.

 

B99, AoS, and TBL are set to resume this week.  Can't wait.

It never fails to make me literally LOL.  Excellent scriptwriting.   Too many favourite episodes to list

 

Blacklist ... I'm only just starting season 4 but it's one of the few box sets I've seen through.  I can't imagine anyone else playing Red.  James Spader just plays him brilliantly

Have you seen him in Boston Legal?  I think he's brilliant in everything he does.

I never got around to watching that but did enjoy his performance towards the end of the series/prequel before that ... The Practice ?

Plus a lot of films ... Crash, 2 Days in The Valley etc.  Also when he was in The Office (I hated the UK version (but then I don't like Ricky Gervais) but enjoyed the US one)

First eps of Star Trek: Discovery.... were super serious and proper Star Trek material, beautiful visuals and epic scenario... mostly boring and predictable.

And the season preview at end of episode 2 spoiled everything about the rest of the season... I have no excitement to watch rest of it. It'll be a great show to watch but meh...

 

The Orville on the other hand, totally bizarre, refreshing and fun to watch. Crazy scenarios in every episode so far and all the cameos yet to happen :D

 

Dark Matter canceled :( I wonder how season 4 would've even gone with the crazy season 3 finale.

I agree; I think The Orville is a much better "Star Trek" than the new Star Trek: Discovery show.

 

This is the first show from Seth MacFarlane that I've actually liked.

I never found his comedy shows (Family Guy, ect.) to be funny or clever.

Close to the knuckle sometimes ... but maybe it says something about me that I always laugh at it.  I love Stewie ... Brian I just want to punch and punch.

 

Currently watching catch up of Kevin Can Wait ... as yet undecided whether it's very funny or very stupid/lazy humour.

Another +1 for The Blacklist.  I haven't finished watching season 4 on Netflix.  Nowadays, I watch nearly everything through Netflix.  I really liked Daredevil as it retold the story through a darker lenses where ethics and justice are often blurred with personal vengeance.  Can't wait for when Punisher is released as the actor who played Frank Castle completely stole the thunder.

 

Iron Fist was horrible.  It wasn't like the comic from what materials I've read online.  Don't get me started on Fuller House.

 

Enjoyed Father Brown until the last season and it was very, very meh.  When they got rid of Sidney and that socialite, it wasn't the same as it was just Father Brown, that gossipy parish secretary and Bunty.  Meh!

 

Person of Interest seem like a real good sitcom but from reading the episode guides, it didn't seem to hold much interest after the first few episodes.  I honestly think the writers are running out of ideas to keep the storyline going.

 

Agents of SHIELD was solid the first two seasons, but gone completely off the rail after season 3.  Sorry, but I can't watch it.

I think the latest episode of The Orville (s1e6, The Krill) is the funniest yet.

 

The opening scene about eating things had me rolling on the floor.

The new season of The X-Files has been very entertaining. They're doing justice to the show's legacy. I recommend it, if you're into that type of show.

 

Stargate Origins was absolutely awful. Uninteresting story. Bad acting/directing. Unlikeable and annoying characters. Seemed like a low-budget show made by film students; no joke.  Don't waste your time watching it.

The latest series of Will & Grace had me laughing for 3 hours today.  Excellent scriptwriting delivered beautifully by a great cast

 

Has anyone watched Young Sheldon  ?  Is it worth downloading

Yes, I'm watching it.  It won't ever beat BBT, but it has me in stitches at times.

The relationship between him and  'meemaw' is hilarious...this explains a lot!   :lol:

OITNB s6 was really good.  I can see them using that as the final season.  It wraps everything up... (mostly).

 

Star Trek Discovery: I finally watched this (my daughter gave me access to her CBS All Access account when she visited me last week).  As much as I wanted to hate this, I didn't. It was OK, 6/10 maybe?  Which, I know, is pretty low for a TV show.  But, I have a hard time not comparing it to The Orville (9/10) (which is everything I want in a Trek show).

Tin Star on Sky Atlantic.

 

If you like gritty dramas with some clever dark humour plus a great soundtrack it's well worth a watch.

Tim Roth is brilliant in it.  His best role since Reservoir Dogs IMO

 

It's so good,  it's been a long time since my wife dragged me to bed.  To watch it.

I think you're spot on, BoltBait. I had the same feeling after watching it recently too. What got me excited about Star Trek again was hearing that Patrick Stewart signed up to play Picard again. I can't wait to see how that goes!

Just watched a couple of Netflix shows, Altered Carbon and Disenchantment.

 

Altered Carbon was good. I'd rate it 7/10.  I wonder what season 2 will bring.  Seems like an interesting premise that you can change "sleeves" at any time... no star should feel safe in their role.  I like sci-fi, so maybe I'm a little easy on this. But, I was entertained.  There were several decent characters.  The stories definitely take a dark turn with some scenes not easy to watch. 

 

Disenchantment a Netflix original series by Matt Groening... just wasn't funny.  2/10.  I watched 4 full episodes before giving up on it.  I really enjoyed Groening's other show Futurama, so I'm not sure what happened here. Meh.  EDIT: I did go back and finish this one... I was bored.  It did not get any better.  I should have just skipped it.

I watched this also.  I agree with Boltbait. I liked it and can't wait for Season 2.  Is this the future?  ?

This is kinda TV related...

 

I've been spending all night watching Robot Chicken video clips on YouTube.

 

I, honestly, had no idea RC was so funny.

 

Can't. stop. watching.

We're waiting for episode 9 here on SkyTV catch up.  Really wish I'd put it on series link to record.

 

I'm tempted to ask what happened ... I've always hated waiting

Just as well.  I think I'd get eunuchised if I found out what was going to happen
