I thought it was boring as sin. Made it through 2 episodes maybe. Wife muscled through it and claims it got better.

That nurse who is in all of these series, the one that tends to patch up the protagonist around episode 6, holds her own in fights with highly trained badguy ninjas.

Just finished series 1 of Line of Duty.

I thought the first two episodes were excellent, but the second half of the season was a letdown, in terms of how well the story was plotted.

Good enough to try the second series, though, especially if it does get better as I've read here and elsewhere.

The fighting was also shit for the most part, down right inexcusable for a show where it's a core part of the premise.

It'd be like a sitcom casting people with no comedic talent or timing.

Rick called it szechuan teriyaki sauce, but McDonald's ads only refer to it as szechuan sauce. Either way, I'm guessing it was probably just a mixture of the BBQ and Sweet and Sour sauces.

Season 2 was very good. But I'm four episodes into season 3 and it is fantastic. I never binge watch TV but I'm having a really hard time turning it off in between episodes. Will probably finish season 3 tomorrow.

Really appreciate the recommendation.

I actually don't mind that American Gods is going off on some tangents as the show will need to pace itself if the plan is for the novel to be stretched out over 3 or 4 seasons.

First two eps of Fargo, season 3, are better than expected. Nice atmosphere. Some awful music, but I'm not expecting perfection.

Unfortunately Fargo got progressively worse. This would have been fine as a brisk 6-parter, but instead overstayed its welcome with 10 episodes.

I think the writer Hawley should be sent packing. He is writing most of the episodes and is simply running out of ideas. It seems he got his life philosophy from some Bob Dylan song, which would be fine if he weren't hammering the same point home over and over again.

Unlike season two, there isn't a single sympathetic character. Not even ironically. I wound up hating everybody, and I think this is a bit of a problem. Gloria should be that character, and her point of view would narrate the story if the writer wasn't an idiot. But she is used too infrequently and ultimately we don't know her.

Finally this season is persistently odious, grotesque. And for no apparent reason. There is no comic relief to carry you through it. Not even a cool shoot-em-up ending. Just many pointless long shots and lingering scenes. I don't want to watch David Thewlis throwing up into a toilet or picking his rotten teeth.

Seriously, get a new writer.

GLOW is a show where Alison Brie alternates between spandex and nudity. Also, Mark Maron is grumpy or something. I think this is supposed to be a comedy? I'm in it for the Brie.

Just for the record, GLOW pretty much dropped the nudity after the pilot. Anything to get picked up, I guess.

Not sure how to feel about Star Trek: Discovery yet. I watched the first two episodes, which are sort of the prologue. They were clunky, but no more clunky than previous Star Trek pilots - probably less.

I think we'll know what kind of show this is once we get a feel for the Discovery crew. Jason Isaacs and the rest of the crew will not come in until episode 3.

I notice some people have criticized the first episode of having too much action at the expense of character development, but I think once you get past episode 2 you will understand why this is. We do not meet most of our characters until the Discovery setting.

Watched ep 3. It's good, but I think I agree with those who say that this show is really not Star Trek. A complete departure from Roddenberry's vision and to a much greater extent than Deep Space 9.

They could have called this show by any other name. Calling it Star Trek just seems like a way to CBS to tap into an existing audience.

I am not a Trekkie, so I can live with all of this. But it would be nice to see real Trek again.

I think they correctly estimate that a real star trek exploration series wouldn't get watched anymore. The last series was closer to that and it floundered badly.

I think STD is very inspired by Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country. Both movies portrayed Starfleet as a military organization and portrayed the tensions that created with the scientific and diplomatic aspirations of the Federation. The bio-engineer's anger that his science study was hijacked by Starfleet echo Kirk's son's fears that Starfleet was going to turn the genesis device into a weapon. Also, CBS made a big deal about hiring Nicolas Meyer, the writer/director of Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country, as a writer on Discovery.

Struggling to even finish episode four of STD. I am trying to be open minded, but the show's characters are too unpleasant and the vision of the future kinda... fascist?

And the scenes with the klingons - battlefield earth was more enjoyable than this.
