I can't seem to find a thread on tv shows. There is a movie thread (and I think even a netflix thread and a GoT thread) but nothing relating generally tv shows (including netflix, HBO, etc).

What are you watching ? What do you reccomand watching ?

I finished Aggretsuko, Rilakkuma, Knightfall, Forged in Fire, and Roman Empire. I have no idea what to do with myself now TV wise. I watched a few episodes on On Children and KonMari, but I have that sense of "seen one, seen them all." Knightfall was the only show out of all of these I throughly enjoyed. I like historical based action/drama with some sort of emotional chemistry between characters, but also have the attention span of a gnat. I think I might start Marco Polo. I mostly watch nature and WWII documentaries.

I have a problem getting into tv shows. My attention span is good for like 1 episode of a reality show (usually some TLC bs) and then I go back to browsing on my phone or start up a video game.

I started watching the HBO Chernobyl series and it seems pretty good so far, especially with the sound editing and music.

Last time I tried to watch a TV show was Supernatural and I stopped in the middle of season 3 because of the lack of free time. I liked it a lot but I've been told that starting from season 5 or 6 it becomes very different because the story was supposed to be concluded with season 5. I plan on at least watching until season 5 because of this.

I don't find most TV shows very appealing nowadays because you have to be sort of committed because of the format. Once I graduate and have enough free time I'll start watching more movies but I'll only stick to series I've been interested in for a while. I want to catch up with Doctor who because I never watched the episodes in the correct order because of the channel it was on back then, and I want to watch the 3rd season of Sherlock BBC because I think I forgot enough spoilers now. I'm also sort of curious about Game of Thrones but I'm not sure I'll watch it. I also never finished the Mentalist and Misfits. I started the first season of How to get away with murder and I stopped halfway in because I couldn't stand the characters.

By the way some of my favorite series are Malcolm in the Middle and the Nanny.

Just binged watched The Society on netflix and it’s not a good show i tend to hate teen drama and those types of shows but it was actually very entertaining and the show actually made me feel for the characters? Which normally happens with really good shows like game of thrones and such, i would def recommend it. The second season of The Rain also just came out which is also a show i’d highly recommend.

I watched it too! I usually hate teen dramas (still hate-watch riverdale tho, while pulling my hair out of cringe at each episode) but I really enjoy post-apocalyptic and "kids on their own" type of shows.

the only historical jdrama i have ever watched was ooku the inner chambers. it's based on a manga

the synopsis: The plot follows an alternate history of early modern Japan in which an unknown disease kills most of the male population, leading to a matriarchal society in which the Ōoku becomes a harem of men serving the now female shōgun.

there's also an earlier movie version that follows a different arc/main character and shogun.

Nobunaga Concerto is a historical j-drama.

Thank you so much for mentioning this. I've just finished the first episode and I'm already going to binge on the second and third one.

It's so well done. From the people on the top trying to downplay the damage at the expense of innocent common folk, to the claustrophobic halls and pathways within the plant. The acting is great, the gloomy setting, the story.

Also, I'm sort of excited for the newest and last season of Mr. Robot. I know it's a meme by this point but I like it regardless.

Then there's also The Terror but I haven't got to watching it yet.

If anyone has some similar shows to recommend, please do.

watched the 3 episodes that are currently out just now, i really liked it, very harrowing but well done. nuclear power/things gone awry has really interested me since i was a child and this was very up my alley.

very unrelated but Good Girls is also a really good series (currently season 2 is airing, renewed for season 3), it's about 3 suburban soccer moms robbing a grocery store to help their various financial struggles but they end up getting tangled up with a gang.

That scene with the cute doggo who was just happy to see the young soldier and he had to shoot him, the sound of the dog whimpering was too much. I had to take a long pause.

Apparently, I'm a filthy normie for feeling sorry during the ep4. There were lots of comments on how the story with those three soldiers dragged on for too long and the scene in the village was just a cheap emotional stunt, but I thought it was a nice reminder that the victims were not only human.

Also, those 90 seconds were so well done. It was a real cinematic experience.

I keep noticing that since ~5th season they started trying to get some woke points, and I feel not that satisfied over 6th season (watched only 7 episodes for now, though) but I find the fact that they kicked out Gina really dissappointing, because she seems irreplacable to me, and her final episode was so sloppy and rushed. Plus, it feels like they are trying to make a big deal out of Rosa's sexuality, and keep baiting Jake on 'OWO GUYS. HES BI TOO! XD XD'.

It can be hit and miss. The earlier seasons are definitely better. From the most recent season, I liked Smithereens because it was the most realistic and human. It actually brought me on an emotional rollercoaster and I cared about most of the characters. The others are so ridiculous it's laughable, maybe people like them because they're a little more light-hearted but I don't watch Black Mirror for that.

The ending to Striking Vipers was absolutely terrible. I expected the main guy to leave his wife but the ending was actually worse than that. Ashley Too was way too over the top. The only issue I had with Smithereens was the sub plot about the mother getting access to her deceased daughter's account. Imo that could have been an entire episode by itself and it felt shoe-horned into that episode. I also didn't enjoy seeing a selfish, nosy cow being rewarded.

This show is absolutely horrifying and triggering. The people praising only seemed to concerned with Zendaya, the composition, and how "realistic" everything is. Well, nope, nothing besides the aspect of anxiety is realistic. Everything else - drugs, sex, infidelity, transgenderism, porn, etc, etc - is just glorified.

Sam Levinson and Drake thought just bc they copped Zendaya that they did something with this. TLDR: I don't recommend watching this unless your tuning in for a good shock factor.

It's basically Skins-Season 7 garbage tier quality meets Kids with model tier actors instead and I usually like trashy stuff like this but with like assassination nation (which is done by the same creator) it's really dull despite the edgecore factors going on. Sam Levison really wants to be like Harmony Korine so fucking bad and I think Zendaya is going to regret doing this shit it if the show gets canned later on. I know this is getting more blogshit tier and I am actually in the firm camp; that coming of age stories don't have to be relatable to everybody own experiences but I wish so many screenwriters and critics; would stop thinking edgy over the top; sex, drugs, drinking, etc's automatically means realism is finally being looks into teenager's lives and that's it.

Just finished watching Better Call Saul, it's not as great as Breaking Bad, but I actually had more fun watching it because it doesn't make you tense or anticipate conflict all the time.

I really loved BB when I first watched it, but after recently re-watching it I just couldn't enjoy it like I used to. The show is always trying to show Walter being cool and a bad ass when really he is an abusive loser going through a mid life crisis who would rather put his family's lives in danger than admit he needs help. It's such a male power fantasy show, that I just can't enjoy it anymore. BCS is better at making you sympathize with the characters but it's waay more boring.

I mean he did do some cool stuff every now and then but the show was pretty clear that he was the latter. Walt explicity said so in the finale.

I'm more annoyed at some of Jessie's story arcs and those episodes where half the runtime is just spent on him getting high and messing around in his house. His moral alignment also seems to adjust to whereever is convenient for the plot at the time.

I really liked the source material, but I read it a long time ago.
Judging by how many seasons it got, people must enjoy it, but looking at the screenshots it just seems kinda shitty to me? Maybe it's due to the fact that they picked such an ugly actor to play Lucifer. He looks nothing alike as well.

A considerable amount of the fandom's read was that Walter is badass despite his shittiness.

Hard disagree. I love Robin and Alexei (it was a crime that not only he got murdered, fucking Hopper didn't even let him watch his goddamn Looney Tunes in peace), but it doesn't change the fact that this season is unnecessary. The TV series should have ended after the first or second one. How many times monsters from the other side can attack Hawkins? It felt stale by the time I started watching the third season. The second one wrapped things up perfectly while leaving it up for the viewer's imaginations how will the future of everyone go.

Also the decision to make Hopper sacrifice himself (or rather go MIA as I don't believe he's dead - that's an obvious sequel bait) after a whole season of him acting like a total douchebag was an incredibly poor choice.
I liked Hopper in the previous seasons, but in this one he was constantly screaming at people and became a rather unpleasant character to spend time with

If you enjoyed Dark (despite reeling from S2's finale, that show really took a nosedive into its own mythos this year) you might get on with other German or Scandi series, there's something about their culture that means there's a lot less focus on how attractive actors are in TV and more on strongly written characters and expressing emotions in a subdued, natural way. There was a third adaptation of the book Perfume (Parfum) into a miniseries that was really good from last year that fits this kinda mould. It's on Netflix.

Alexis Bledel should have played June or they should just focus Emily already but the show doesn’t use her much. It’s because funny Alexis Bledel still can’t act for shit but she’s great on the THT for some reason.

I watched that show while it was being aired. The first seasons are really interesting and pull you in, but the plot gets weird & messy after a while. The end of the show was extremely disappointing for me, left a lot of questions unanswered and just all around wasn't satisfying. If I could get my time back that I spent watching it, I would.

But some people still like it and recommend it. So do what you will.

Just got around to finally watching the San Junipero episode of Black Mirror. I thought this was one of the saddest and creepiest episodes I've seen. I don't get the love for it at all. Is it just because 'muh lesbians'? The life Kelly lived with a husband and daughter sounded a lot nicer, and more romantic than her brief relationship with Yorkie in the simulated reality world. How was their relationship romantic? And all those lights at the end…just so fucking creepy.

Yeah unpopular opinion but it's one of my least favorite episodes. The idea itself was good but it was just not well-executed imo. I think a lot of people like it cause of the thematic, and lesbian representation is really rare.

the first season of 24 is great but dont binge watch. watch one hour every week.
rome the hbo show. brilliant. the show cost too much but they was able to tie up all the loose ends and it got a proper ending.
i loved nbc dracula but again it cost too much and jrmeyers had some troubles so the show ended. but it looked marvelous.
action with jay mohr. that show was awesome. it was too early and was cancelled but allowed to have a great wrap up season. a lot of other shows copied them.
hannibal was beauty but triggering. it was also a show that cost too much but the acting was divine. the last season was too much but the first one was scary and brilliant.

I don't know how I feel about the ending of OITNB. Not a fan of Pipes with Alex, especially after they made moving on and life after prison such a huge deal. I also wanted to see more justice for the women but I guess the reality is that prison sucks so the writers went with the more realistic approach to the finale.

Yeah, 98% of the character endgames were devastating. I wasn't expecting a happy ending for everyone, but jeez, make it 50 and 50 at least. Or 60 and 40, or even 70 and 30.

Agree. It was kind of depressing that only Gloria got a good ending. The rest were lukewarm at best, heartbreaking at worse. They also did Doggett so wrong. She out of all people deserved a better ending after all that character development.

Agreed, her death was so out of the blue and weird. It feels like when a cast member has a fight with the director/writer and they decide to kill their character as punishment… and based on what Tiffany's actress said on her insta, it might actually be true

Didn't her actor, Taryn Manning, game a cryptic interview after the end of the show saying how she was left worse off she was before because she was the only one speaking out about the "harms" the show was making and how it was hurting a lot of people? Maybe the writers/director was done with her and killed her character on purpose.
Any thoughts on what she meant? My tinfoil is that it has to do with Cox.

The stuff with ICE felt so ham-fisted. I just didn't care about the new characters introduced. Like yeah, that shit IRL sucks, but this is a prison show, and I want to see what happens to the characters in the prison. Also Nicky having sex in the kitchen is just gross, and Red should have yelled at her but poor Red got completely screwed over

She said her Insta was hacked and it wasn’t her who posted this. But why would someone hack her account to post such specific messages? It must have been her. I wonder what happened behind the scenes, especially since in the credits and several farewell videos on YouTube, the cast and the work on set seems so wholesome. I agree that her death was out of the blue and a bad choice, though. Even if they did it because of the character’s growth ("This is a character with lots of potential and now she’s even graduating, but prison is so horrible, so she still has to die!", it just seemed so random. Other than that, I really enjoyed the final season.

I just finished watching Dark Shadows (free on Amazon if you have prime) and it was great background noise while I worked. It's very slowly paced but every once in a while, the story takes a turn out of left field that's crazy fun. It was shot live, so there are a ton of mistakes recorded for posterity which I'm sure the actors were totally thrilled about. It's also fun to look at the real fashions and hairstyles of the late sixties onward.

Because of that, I fell down a rabbit hole of old soap operas and found a channel that has all the episodes of a show called Port Charles. Like Dark Shadows, they were sort of bumbling along until they decided to add vampires. Needless to say, if you care about serious story, this is not the show for you.

It's either really good or really, really bad, but it's much more fun than Dark Shadows and so far I'm loving it. You can jump in at the first 'book' Tainted Love (they stole the idea of short arcs from telenovelas) which is where the craziness begins. Don't worry about characters or backstory, you'll pick it all up quickly.

If you like ghosts and vampire slayers (seriously) and magic candles and angels and all kinds of other loony in serial form, take a look, you might like it!

I'm rewatching Bad Girls Club for the first time since it aired in like 2006. I'm about to start season 5.
Anyone else watch? I think I only ever saw up to the 4th season or so. I hear the new seasons suck bc it's just girls getting jumped constantly. It's way more entertaining when the girls can at least tolerate one another. Season 4 kinda sucked bc everyone was miserable the whole time.

I love watching this trash while I sew bc you don't need to pay any attention to the "plot" lol

Anyone itt finished watching Euphoria. Is the season worth finishing especially since it's been renewed? Saw some clips on twitter and the art direction of this show is really pretty, but the fact they keep pushing the mc and trans character as a lesbian couple makes me a bit uncomfy.

I caned it all in a day. I could feel my radfem side getting simultaneously annoyed and yet pleased that every character in it is universally an asshole, especially the men. Then again, considering the source was written by Ennis I'm not surprised. I wonder if this trend towards "gritty" comic book adaptations means one of the big streaming services will option some of the more subversive stuff, like The Filth or even Transmet. As long as they don't do to it what they did to Watchmen.

Except now that I think about it, they absolutely would, and I don't think I could cope with Ryan fucking Reynolds getting cast as Spider or something.

Anyone checked out Glow on Netflix? Season 3 dropped eariler this month, but I'm already hoping it doesn't fall victim to Netflix's 3 season cancellation.


It's based on GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). They heavily based the chacracters from the real-life show but it focuses more on the production rather than the wrestling.
There are a lot of characters but it does a good job of giving each of them a bit of development throughout the season. l also apercaite the interactions between the some of the characters you wouldn't expect to make connections. A lot of times shows with huge cast only focus on the same few characters interacting with the same groups together so I love when there's some unexpected kinship between them. the main character may be the worst one but I'm watching for everyone else


If you're a fan of 80's shit, training montages and majority female cast with some light drama, I'd recommend it. Also the documentary on the real-life show for context.

I really enjoyed Glow. There's something that comes up in the final episode which could go into so many different directions. They buy a TV station and wnat to do Glow there with new characters, but Ruth isn't feeling it
