"King of the Hill" is back on Hulu, so we've had it going 'round the clock as moving wallpaper and background noise.

We went through "Castle Rock" in a couple days. It's ... okay. I get why people like it, and I do like Stephen King. I'm just having trouble with understanding WHY it's a continuing series and not a limited one.

The thought of Rick and Morty in that universe is a wee bit scary to be honest.

Have you seen Britannia on Amazon? It deals with druids and the second Roman invasion of Britain.

It just kicked into being a more moderately sci-fi show this season.

Argh, the wait for season 4 has begun with a serious vengeance.

Not sure what to watch now.

That would be a crossover for the ages.

Been excitedly watching the new season of "Man in the High Castle," which dropped this week. I know I'd mentioned it to you before, and I still recommend it as a sci-fi show, though it's still light on that aspect. I feel like there should be a crossover with "Rick and Morty," since MITHC is about the infinite universes and possibilities.

Netflix talking about doing more sci-fi shows... color me interested.

Been watching Hulu's original series, "Harlots," lately. We'd watched about half of the first episode last year, but weren't feeling it and stopped. Restarted it recently and now we're halfway through season 2.

Since the last post, we'd also binge-watched "The Santa Clarita Diet," "Sharp Objects," and "Disenchantment."

I like how Amazon Prime video remembers your history, even from years back. Been jumping back into some Deep Space Nine lately and really digging it. Worf joins the crew permanently in season 4 so that's amazing. Overall, DS9 reminds me of Mass Effect a lot, like if it were all about drama on the Citadel. Amazing stuff.

I have a feeling "Westworld" will go the way of "The Walking Dead." Seems like whenever I lose interest in a show, not long after I keep hearing from people that are still watching it that it's just not that good any more or they're completely pissed off with it.

I still have yet to watch the second season of "The Handmaid's Tale" (definitely not a favorite show), but then I've heard so many people REALLY HATED the season finale for it.

Seems like shows can have AMAZING first seasons and THAT'S IT. It's downhill from there. Shows I love don't stand a chance at the Emmy's these days because there's always some show that everyone's jizzing their pants over following its first season. It happened with "Homeland," "The Handmaid's Tale," etc. A show could be consistently good, but the hype around a new show will get it all the awards. Same with when a show ends. Jesus Christ.

I heard SO MUCH about "Westworld" during its first season, when I was watching it, but wasn't hearing shit about its second season. Elara and I recently did pub trivia together with a couple that was going on about how "Westworld" is way better than GoT. We both just sat there quietly until they stopped.

Doesn't sound like Westworld season 2 was that hot.

I'm still rarely watching TV but The Expanse sounds like something I should really consider and maybe up my alley.

I still need to watch GOT... I swear I'll catch up before it's too late!

We binge-watched the available first season of "Cloak and Dagger." I liked it better than how "Runaways" ended up being adapted (that one still breaks my heart.)

Watched the entirety of the new season of "Orange is the New Black" in a matter of a day and a half. Better than last season, but slower and not as good as it used to be. It's still a decent show, I suppose.

Well, "Bojack Horseman" is dropping its new season next month, "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" will be back in October and will end after this season, and it's still until next year for "Game of Thrones."

Well, watched "GLOW" season 2, practically in one night. That was good.

Been slogging through season 1 of "Taboo." It's OK, just really dreary.

Every time I restart watching season 2 of "Westworld," I stop. Dunno why. It's just not grabbing me. I just can't make it through the second episode.

Binge-watched "Barry" on HBO. That's a GREAT show. A bit close to "Breaking Bad," but about being an assassin, not meth cook.

Also ended up binge-watching "Crashing," Peter Holmes' semi-autobiographical show about being a stand-up comedian in New York. It's funny, but probably more funny to me, being a fan of his stand-up. I don't know how it comes off to people who haven't seen/heard him before.

Just wondering when the hell Amazon is going to drop "The Man in the High Castle" season 3.

We watched "GLOW" on Netflix. Pretty much knocked that out in a day since it's only 10 episodes, half-an-hour each. We've watched it several times through.

We've lately been watching "Godless," a Netflix miniseries about a town of mostly widows under-siege by outlaws. Almost done with it.

Always looking out for more shows to watch.

I have Prime. Hm, might give it a shot finally, though a lot of the HBO content is also subscription-based where I've got to pay more to watch it through Prime.


Finished "Community." Man, did that ever stagger to the finish line. Well, there's always the golden years on that show.

"Runaways" is just... shit. I'm honestly mad at myself whenever the episode finished because I apparently keep holding out hope that it's going to get better. Maaaaaaaybe when it finally aligns with the books in a few seasons (based on how goddamn slowly this is going with all these original content they're bullshitting us with), but I honestly cannot see this going past this season. Goddamn it, Marvel.

After that I'm still watching "Vikings," but I'm worried for Lagertha and most of the other characters are completely un-likeable to carry the show for me if she gets taken out.


Finally started "Legion." Since he's a super powerful mutant with mental illness and it's all from his perspective, it's all over the place. Need to rewatch the second episode since I wasn't paying as much attention as I should have. Really can't just have it on as background noise.

Going to wrap up season 6 of Curb tonight, still loving it. I've been watching it off Amazon Prime actually, I guess they have some HBO shows up on there.

I still have yet to ever really watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm." It'll probably be a while since I ended up cancelling my HBO subscription recently.


Finished "Future Man" on Hulu. Eh... It was... not good.

We're also watching "Runaways," which I loved the original comics for, but this show is just not doing them justice.

I'm only a few episodes from the end of "Community." Sadness.

Agreed.

It also helps that Dan Harmon was behind it, who's now behind "Rick and Morty."
