Into the Badlands.
I watched the first episode of season 2 last night, I had to simultaneously read the synopsis of season 1 cause I completely forgot what was happening. It doesn't matter too much, decent fight scenes and a surprising amount of squirty blood. I probably spent most of season 1 watching the fight scenes and looking at phone during the talky bits. There's an awful lot of talking. Nick Frost is in it now and he's shite. I'll keep watching though.

Spent a silly amount of time scroll through Netflix and not having the will to commit to anything. Tried Mark Maron's sitcom, turned it off.

Will check out Lovesick.

Thanks for the recommendation on Lovesick. Through season 1. Enjoying it. Reminds me a little of You're The Worst

Took me till the end of the 1st ep to recognise Evie was Alisha from Misfits

Great soundtrack too

Girlboss- flew through this last week. 13 half hour episodes. the lead in it is annoy as fuck, shes quiet the dickhead. show was alright and seeing RuPaul not is drag is strange.

Forgot to say, the episode (10) about the message board is a highlight. just how it was shot gave me a good giggle thinking about this place and how people act online.

That show Impractical Jokers is really annoying, but I came across a doc about them on the road for their live show last night, was quite good. They do seem like sound lads. Didn't know they've been at it as an quadruple-act since 1999.

I'd definitely try amazon but they've no Roku app in Ireland so fuck them, I just torrent their stuff instead.

I have Netflix and Amazon (I get Amazon free as part of my Prime thing that guarantees free next day delivery).

Main problem is there's actually too much stuff across both of them along with on actual TV that I can never pick what to watch or I start something and forget it.

Bring back 4 TV channels I say.

Finished the available episodes of OITNB, really good season so far. Probably best to wait for it though as some of the episodes haven't finished post production.

Was there any feedback on how many people actually DL'd the leaked episodes? You'd assume a vast majority of subscribers/fans would be willing to wait for the official release.

If it was a show I was dying to see, I'd download it. Happy to wait for Netflix with this, watch it inbetween my weekly shows

Finished Lovesick. Really enjoying it. Hope they get a 3rd season sooner rather than later

I've only watched the first two episodes and they didn't inspire me to watch any more. I didn't have high hopes from when they announced the format this season. meah

House of Cards, OITNB, GOT all back soon. American Gods hasn't found it's feet yet (had i not looked up a synopsis, i still wouldn't know what the show was about at this stage. saying that, it look and feel of it is amazing. very well made)
