    I've watched season 1 and really liked it, I'm part way through season 2 and so far it's not as good, but still totally watchable.

    The plot line in season 1 where Wolf ditches the mission to stay in the 80s, follow around Corey Hart and become a coke head celebrity chef is by far my favourite part of the show

    Season 3 starts April 3. First episode is available now for free at https://www.ifc.com/shows/brockmire/full-episodes/season-03/episode-01/clubhouse-cancer and on YouTube.

    I am not in any of Season 3, but it looks like it's going to be good. I watched the first episode, and they've got some great cast additions this season.

    I stumbled on "After Life" on Netflix and loved it.

    Trailer is NSFW due to language.

    Season two of Happy! is finally on, it wasted no time diving balls-first into fucked-uppedness. The way this show mixes slapstick with graphic violence is phenomenal.

    Best Syfy show ever.

    I haven’t seen season 1 at all, and my DVR fucked up and didn’t record all of season 2...but damn, I don’t laugh out loud at any show like I do when I watch Brockmire. The writing paired with his voice is so fucking funny.

    Why not?! It's on Amazon Prime and it's free on IFC.com. (Ep 1.1 still available for another 4 days!)

    I finally got around to Deadly Class, and it's kind of dark fun.
    American Gods Season 2 lost me.
    I gave up on Preacher pretty much at Season 2.

    I'm looking forward to Good Omens and The Boys on Amazon, after GofT ends.

    Anything else supposed to be able to take the Game of Thrones spot?

    Into the Badlands just had it's series finale... too bad, too, because I enjoyed the show, for the most part. It was part fun kung-fu martial arts flick, part sci-fi/fantasy... whatever it was, I found it entertaining.

    I hope that it lets the showrunners do something better moving forward.

    The Chernobyl miniseries (so far) on HBO is excellent. It’s also a thoroughly depressing hour of TV.

    The Doom Patrol is great. You will enjoy if you like comic book adaptation type shows. Really good character development and background stories. I thought it was going to be an xmen knockoff after the first episode but kept watching and love it the more I see. Highly recommend.

    The second season of Fleabag just came out and I think it might be the most perfect 6 episodes of television I’ve ever watched. Low commitment since it’s 2 6-episode seasons, available on prime.

    Now I’m finished it, The second season of Barry is twice as funny and awesome as the first. The episode “Ronny/Lilly” will go down as one of the funniest episodes of TV ever, and Hader directed it.

    Also the TV version of What We Do In The Shadows is not only great, it’s possibly the greatest recreation of the decade. When I heard they were setting in America I groaned at the thought, the show “Episides” made fun of this trope. Knowing the original creators wrote and directed every episode adds to it god vibes. Like the movie, it’s a real hoot and it’s ten mini-movie episodes with some delightful cameos along the way.

    Second season dropped about two weeks ago and holy shit just go watch it now everyone. It's Germany's Stranger Things but better. Also I just switched the language to German and put on English subtitles, which I like better than the dubbed version.

    Everyone else: If you're going to do a time travel show, keep the plot simple. Time travel is really easy to mess up.
    Dark: Fuck you, ever wanted three versions of the same character in the same time at the same time, all while three copies of a one of-a-kind object are in play? What if we made everything and your mother a bootstrap paradox (and I literally mean your mother)? What if we used the same time travel twist five fucking times and you fell for it every time because we wrote it so well? WHO LIKES TIME TRAVEL WITH PERMADEATH?! YOU WOULDN'T THINK IT WORKS BUT IT TOTALLY DOES.

    In for any of that? Then fuck you, watch our show.

    Just finished season 2 of Dark last night.

    I have really enjoyed it, but definitely second Aetius on having it in German with English subtitles.

    I await season 3!

    Highly recommend The Boys which is a Netflix original of a comic book series turned TV show. We are enjoying this show for now but there is only a single season out currently.

    It's a comic series written by someone who hates superheroes. Definitely a fun spin on the idea of a hero mixed with negative elements of corporate America.

    We are about 75% through season 1 but I was hooked from episode 1. A very fun watch.

    Agreed. It gets away from the graphic novels, but in a good way. The ending of season 1 is amazing. Glad it was already renewed for season 2.

    Ennis is a weird one. His hatred of Superheroes is complicated since he doesn't necessarily hate them, but more the fact that they've unintentionally suffocated the medium amongst other issues. Ironically enough, two of his favorite fictional characters are Superman and Wonder Woman whom he ALWAYS writes respectfully. As for recs, I've not personally watched it, but I have had Umbrella Academy recommended to me a good few times and its trailer is an incredibly good sell.
