Guys I need recommendations on the next TV series I should start watching.

Recommended Posts

Stranger Things season 1 was vastly overrated but was alright.  If it wasn't for nostalgia factor, I don't think it would have gotten nearly as much praise.

 

Season 2 was just bad and was like 90% screen time showing the lisp kid talk since he was everyone's favorite character from season 1.

 

Not sure if I'll watch season 3.

I enjoyed the opening ep of Into The Badlands final episodes.  

 

Still can't wrap my mind around the fact that it's getting canceled. It's so unlike nearly  every other show out there. I hope it gets picked up by Netflix or something.

I liked both seasons but by being increasingly annoyed by Gaten Matarazzo's presence on the Fios commercials, season 3 is up in the air for me as well.  I'll probably watch it, but he's gone from a likable kid to a pest by those commercials and I'm not sure if I can separate my feelings when watching the show.

So Mark Hamill has joined Season 2 of Knightfall on the History channel. Just started Season 1 of it on Netflix. This battle scene said we might have a winner. :D

I just finished it, @TK. I honestly wasn't expecting much in the beginning,, but I thought it was pretty damn good. A few twists and turns, high stakes,  very good battle scenes, etc.

 

Probably not what you're looking for if you want a accurate portrayal of that time period, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Time well spent 👍

 

Really liked the guy that played Philip IV

I binged this over the past 2-3 weeks to catch up to the new season. Now I am sad.

You know..I really feel like I should watch Killing Eve. Is it similar (not storyline but quality) to Orphan Black (which admittedly I gave up on after S3)?

Killing Eve is a B+. Starts of strong but can't fully hold. One of the best new shows from last year.

It continues a nasty streak of shows of mine that got ended abruptly

 

Daredevil

The Expanse (though that recently got picked up by Amazon

 

Turn

Dark Matter

Penny Dreadful also just got renewed

Hell on Wheels

Black Sails

 

 

Makes it tough to commit

CBS All-Access has dropped the first 2 episodes of "Twilight Zone".  I decided to see the first episode before sleeping. It was pretty good. A faithful reboot of the classic Anthology Series.

Hell on Wheels was dope overall, though I didn't like what they ended up doing to Elam's character. It was dumb. The Chinese love interest was also kind of silly imo. That theme song though!

Started watching The Act on Hulu.  So far 3 episodes in, it's quite good. Based on true events apparently.

Binged Hanna over the weekend. Sort of like a cross between Jason Bourne and LaFemme Nikita. Starts a bit slow, but definitely picks up.

Is The Act the show about the Munchhausen by proxy case? There was an HBO doc about it called Mommie Dead & Dearest.  Really good.

Cillian Murphy is an underrated actor

For those that stuck with Fear The Walking Dead, it has become a really good show in the last couple of seasons.  The trailer for the new season has me hyped:

That's the one. The actress that plays the girl is fantastic, and it has Dean Norris (Hank) from Breaking Bad. The mother is good as well.

Yep (well, rebooted, sort of)

Natalie Dormer is going to play a key role in this new one.

 

 

You know I actually think I heard about that and then completely forgot. Great, great show. I hope they keep the level of quality up to par.
