If you haven't watched Review yet you should. Always Sunny is still good. Brooklyn Nine-Nine too.

I like Broad City. It's a bit like Spaced, but set in New York.

It seems not by accident either. I tweeted Edgar Wright a while ago saying that; he replied saying they asked me to direct the finale last year but I had to say no.

Love Review. Was gutted by the recent short season.

Normally enjoy Sunny but was put off by an early episode of the current season. Must give it a go again.

Brooklyn Nine Nine bugged me when I tried it a few years ago. I was a big Joanna Newsom fan at the time (still am tbh) so perhaps that got in the way.

Yeah really looking forward to that. The trailers have actually been so-so, but he's such a talented and inventive director you just know it's going to be great. Everything he does is overflowing with ideas. Also, stunt driving ftw.

The trilogy is great obvs but Scott Pilgrim vs the World is the best thing he's done imo. Underrated.

Baby Driver is probably the only thing to look forward to this summer.

Not sure it's going to be great though.

Anyone watching American Gods?

I love it.

Dialog is fantastic, it looks incredible, its as mad as a box of frogs, and Lovejoy is just playing the Devil/Swearengen, so its a winner.

Does it improve vastly from the first episode or did you just get into it?

I liked it right from the off.

I've only watched 2 eps, mind.

Has anyone ever watched the sketch show Man Stroke Woman. Curious if it's worth a go. Keep seeing this Nick Frost sketch from it

Watched some of 13 Reasons Why last night.

A few minutes, it was so shit had to turn it off. I feel like it's been mentioned a lot here, did ye like it and why?

Someone told me during it that it was made for 13 year olds and that made much more sense to me but I don't know if it's true or not.

Awful acting, awful writing

Loved it myself, couldn't wait to see what happened after each episode. The acting was shite but I stopped noticing for the most part after the first couple of episodes. The main guy was great as well

I watched the first episode and didn't really like it. None of the characters are in any way compelling.
