Silicon Valley
The whole lucking it out in the end shit grew thin in season 2. This season has been hilarious at times, but that was mainly involving Elrich, Jared and Jin Yang. With TJ Miller leaving, I dont see the dynamic of the show being the same to be honest.
Started Season 1 of Preacher last night, think I will like it

tbf, most of my shows have stopped for Summer, so waiting on GOT & Rick & Morty. Only have Preacher & John Oliver at the minute, and kinda putting off HoC and OITNB
New season of OITNB was quite good.

House of Cards s5 was poor. Last three episodes in particular were diabolical.

So many things happened but it all felt so inconsequential. Impossible to give a shit about any of it.

First episode of S2 Preacher is the most fun thing I've seen all year, bananas.

I watched the first two episodes last year when we were looking for something to watch and gave up, the wiki description of the character sums it up
A dedicated police officer, Luther is obsessive, possessed, and sometimes violent. However, Luther has paid a heavy price for his dedication; he has never been able to prevent himself from being consumed by the darkness of the crimes with which he deals.

For Luther, the job always comes first. His dedication is a curse and a blessing, both for him and those close to him.
It's so cliched at this stage that that sounds more like the intro for a spoof.

I rewatched last ep of season 3 and first ep of season 4 at the weekend coz I forgot what happened, never watched season 4.

It is very very good despite it being cliched. I used to think it was overly violent and trying to compete with American dramas too much but after whats happened in the UK in the last year it isnt really

I find the violence works. Some of the villians are a bit OTT but its a TV show not a documentary. The violence ratchets up the tension in a way I think works.

Yeah its a hard boiled, cop show and you can complain its cliched but what isn't? Its how you deal with these cliches that matters. Idris Elba is brilliant as Luther too. And TBH the way moral ambiguity of his actions comes back to haunt him isn't all that common on TV shows. There's a nuance in it, especially in the Luther character himself.

Only a couple of eps left in GLOW.

I really like it. Great cast. Didn't expect good things from Marc Maron, I tried to watch his sitcoms before and they didn't do anything for me. He's great in this though.
