I really should get on with watching series 2 of Mr Robot. I enjoyed the first, just haven't got round to bothering with the second one.

I'm around 6 into Glow and it's very likeable. It's nothing I'll think about much long after it's finished or anything but it's enjoyable all the same. Good cast.

In fairness to McDonald's, R&M wouldn't exactly be the most family friendly show. That's really cool.

I hated Rick and Morty the first time I watched it, thinking it to be painfully unfunny (I found Rick's constant burping to be offensively irritating). I was confused as to why seemingly all of Reddit raved about it so much. I decided to give it another chance a couple of months ago and ended up watching every episode over the course of about four days, laughing my backside off throughout. The first episode of season 3 that appeared on Netflix yesterday is probably the best one yet.

I don't think I've ever misjudged a show so badly on a first watch.

Can I just say, you have no idea how much I want to have a peak inside the Game of Thrones thread. :(

I have no idea how I am going to avoid spoilers until its available on DVD/Netflix etc. ](*,)

We just finished watching season 2 of "The Bureau" / Le Bureau des Legendes.

I enjoyed the first season, but season two upped that in every way!

Very sedate and real performances from all the cast, and you really can believe it's close to the real world politics. Think Homeland without the patriotism and glorification bs. This is dirty and gritty and not glamorous at all. :D

Rick and Morty episode 2 of season 3.
May have made the mistake of re-watching episode 1 before it and setting the bar far too high.

It had it's moments, but it just wasn't as funny for my money....

I'm making my own spin off series in my head where Drummond and Matilda get drawn into solving countryside mysteries in some kind of old school version of Midsomer Murders.

I would like to see them do a prequel where they cover the Jack The Ripper case.
