    Anyone else watching Narcos? I saw the first episode and loved it, could be the best Netflix original yet.

    EDIT: Four episodes in and it still owns, I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

    Honestly can't say. It's just a really well-executed, morally ambiguous series about Escobar and the DEA agents working to bring him down. You should be able to tell from the first episode if it's your thing.

    Ugh that description is too neutral. It's savage drug war with psychotic cartels on one side and pissed off vengeful DEA/cops on the other. Some real heroes too especially the Colombian politicians who stand up to Escobar at significant assassination risk. I don't know enough about the topic to say how accurate it is but it's a blast to watch, crazy shit happening nearly every episode, great production values. One of those few shows that feels more like a long movie than a TV series.

    trailer for the new season of Fargo



    I thought the first season was absolutely fucking brilliant. I actually preferred the writing in Fargo over True Detective. This season is a prequel to Season 1. Looking forward to it...

    The new episode of Review was amazing. You're seriously fucking up if you aren't watching this show. Can't wait for the new season of Nathan for You next month.

    I made an account but everything I wanted to rate was in preview mode. It's cool though, don't think there is a good site for TV rating.

    Just started Mr. Robot, concept sounded totally unappealing to me but so many people are raving about it I guess I have to give it a shot. Seems OK so far.

    Update on Treme - halfway through season 3

    Love it. Didn't like the whole indian thing at start, but it grew on me. It's focused on characters rather than on the case like in Wire. Still lots of politics. I kinda miss John Goodman, but what happened to him was good for the show I guess. Slightly disappointed by the music, I expected more jazz and less jazz influenced R&B, brass bands and rap.

    But that was kinda balanced by mentioning Goatwhore and Eyehategod cameo. How can you not love a show that has an Eyehategod show in it?

    yeah, i'm keeping an eye on the database for new stuff getting added.

    kinda hard to rate tv shows as a whole when seasons often vary so wildly in quality though.

    Binged Mr. Robot over the weekend. It was a good watch, wouldn't say I loved it but it was hard to stop watching. Last two eps were a bit strange... I have no idea where they're going with the show right now. I liked the visual style, I dunno why but I found the bizarre framing very aesthetically pleasing. Patrick Bateman's my favorite character, every scene with him is a riot. Yeah it's a fun show.

    Can someone tell me why the fuck are post-credits scenes becoming a thing. Fuck that shit. This season ended with a stupendously important one that I completely missed at first.

    Really digging the shit out of Deadwood finally. Granted, bullock and jane are both shitty actors and shitty characters, and I'm getting pretty bored of the word 'cocksucker'. But totally legit show nonetheless. Love the doc. Some might say he seems mousy, but he always looks so pissed off I just imagine him being annoyed by everyone there impeding his fucking job. Man just wants to heal the people and drink on weekends.

    jane is fantastic. bullock's kinda one-note i guess, i prefer olyphant in JUSTIFIED. he's not got much range but has insane amounts of charisma, could become a big star if they cast him right.

    Bullock and Jane are both great. The only character that ever really bothered me was Alma. And maybe Bullock's son.


    You seen the original Australian show?
