Didn't think S2 was as good as S1. But S3 is outstanding.

Just in the process of watching Tin Star - some good Brit humour from Tim Roth.

Watched some of Midnight,Texas - Buffy the vampire slayer for grown ups. Not too serious.

I've got a week off with nothing to do and I was pondering which of the shows I've recorded/got access to on Netflix I was going to blitz through this week. I also didn't think S2 was anywhere near as good as S1 so I'll take your enthusiasm for S3 as a good sign.

Midnight Texas isnt bad but its no Buffy. The writing feels more like early Greys Anatomy to me!

Just finished watching ' Iron Fist '. I was amused to find out whilst reading a Cosmo or something, that the lead in it, Finn Jones, likes listening to old school disco and likes cats, like me.

Extant - So much promise, so little delivered. Ridiculous 'future' tech, for example they can make a robot AI who is completely lifelike with emotions and conscience but to enter a secure room you still need a hand scanner, or to track a car requires a transponder that can be unplugged, or in fact manually driven cars. The dialogue is cringeworthy, possibly some of the most clichéd tripe I've ever heard and that's saying something.

Some examples of the stupidity of the show. Not even Halle Berry can save this.

"Orange is the New Black" is my current fave. Certainly a better prison comedy than that Porridge remake.

Just finished first season of Deadwood and whilst it looks fantastic I found it a bit of a slog, I won't bother with other seasons.

Did anyone watch the remake of Roots that aired this year?

Yeah I watched roots, enjoyed it, might go back and watch the original, although I bet it's dated now.

Final episode of the current series of fear the walking dead tonight, series 8 of the walking dead starts next week

Thanks I'll give it a try, I remember watching the original the first few were really good but it seemed to drag on a bit, I imagine it will look dated.
