What's everyone into? With The Walking Dead just finished (fucking cliffhanger!) and Game of Thrones not starting for a few weeks I'm at a bit of a lull myself.

Most of the shows I'm watching seem to be DC related right now. Funny thing is I never read a DC comic in my life. Was never interested in Batman or Superman as a kid and still know very little about them. Started watching Arrow a few years back because it seemed interesting. I only found out later that it's from a comic. I'm now watching that, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Arrowverse in other words. odd thing is I think Arrow is actually the weakest of all the shows now, though I prefer Season 4 so far compared to 3, which nearly had me quit watching. The Flash I think is the best of them, but being more sci-fi based it suits my tastes the most. It reminds me a bit of Fringe in the current season (I miss that program). 

I'm also watching Grimm. 

Also just finished The Walking Dead. My money is on Abraham being 'the one' by the way. I know it's supposed to be Glenn based on the comic, but deaths seem to get switched a lot in the TV show and Abraham dodged his comic death already this season.

Finished The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead recently.

Then watched the first season of The Expanse. Then first season of American Horror Story, and right now the only season of Terra Nova. Me and the wife are suckers for tv-series.

Last night I was watching some older South Park episodes, and I don't have cable so I don't watch new episodes of anything with the exception of South Park which I stream.

The shows I watch regularly are classic Sci-fi like Star Trek, Star Trek: TNG, and Doctor Who with Tom Baker. I also watch comedy like SCTV, Seinfeld, and South Park.

I watched the first episode of a new sci-fi series called Colony yesterday. Undecided about it so far. Hopefully the next episode picks up a bit.

Clap Never gets stale, old Father Ted!

I've been watching Billions. One episode to go in the first series... Can't wait!

Also 11.22.63. Just one to go in that too I think.

The new series of Banshee started the other night. As violent and as much nudity as ever, and with an extra dose of white supremacists this time.

Some of the other shows mentioned here:
I tried both Fear The Walking Dead and The Expanse, but didn't get far with either. Just not my thing I suppose.

Also can't wait for the new Game of Thrones!Big smile

Fear the Walking Dead season 2 just started a few days ago. I´m looking forward to having time to follow that. Season 1 was pretty promising.
 
I´m currently wrapping up watching season 1 (the sole season, as the series was cancelled after that) of Terra Nova. It´s fairly entertaining, but nothing special.

No not really. Could be anyone of them really. That´s what so great about The Walking Dead. You´re never sure who´s gonna live or who´s gonna die. I´d be surprised if Rick was the one though Smile.

As far as I know Laura Cohan has signed a contract for season 7, so it´s probably not Maggie either.

I don't think it'll be Maggie either as I don't think it's someone already sick or hurt due to the way the victim got back up again after the first blow. I think that rules out Daryl too but you never know I suppose. I have not read the comic its based on but I do know that Daryl is not in the comic which kinda makes him fair game to get killed off at any time, but I think he's still got a storyline there to be finished (his rivalry with Dwight). I know in the comic that this is where its supposed to be Glenn but that doesn't mean it will be Glenn as characters often dodge their comic counterpart's death. The reason I think it's Abraham is that he was supposed to get that crossbow bolt that killed Denise a few episodes before which may have happened so they can keep Glenn on the show. There's precedent for that as Carol died in the comic during the Prison/Woodbury storyline.

One show I'm watching that I forgot to mention is The Shannara Chronicles. All in all it hasn't been a bad adaptation of Terry Brook's writing but I somehow can't see if having the longevity of Game of Thrones. Not that I mind too much as I heard that after season 1 they're going to ignore the books and do their own thing using Brook's setting so they can keep the same cast.

Just watched the 8 episodes of "Valentine". Although it´s a pretty simple comedy type series focusing on love, I found it pretty entertaining. It was cancelled though.
 
After that I have started watching Jeremiah, which is a series based on the Huppen comics. I used to love those comics as a child. The series is a bit old and it´s so and so with my excitement over it, but I´m a sucker for anything post-apocalyptic, so I´m still enjoying it somewhat.

Same. Though I find that most TV shows end up being not that good and inevitably get cancelled. 

Defiance is a good one if you've not seen it. It ran for three seasons before being cancelled but did end in such a way that it could have been brought back for a 4th but didn't have to be. There was no cliffhanger and to be honest I actually liked the end. It's about aliens whose world was dying and came to Earth believing it uninhabited only to discover their mistake once they arrived. Eventually tensions boiled over and there was a war during which alien Terraforming stuff was released onto the Earth which completely changed the planet. The series is set some years later with humans and the aliens trying to live in peace with each other. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defiance_%28TV_series%29" rel="nofollow - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defiance_(TV_series)

The Shannara Chronicles that I'm currently watching is also a post apocalyptic series, but it's a bit different from the norm as its a fantasy series with elves, gnomes etc. Apart from the elves though (who are quite different from the elves in Lord of the Rings it must be said) all the other races are just muted humans. So it's not a typical fantasy either. The series doesn't capture the book as well as I'd have liked but it could have been much worse and I've been enjoying what they're done with it all the same.

a good show, they're on the final season (the 5th)
got weaker I say in the last couple of seasons but it's an interesting, enjoyable show.

^I dsiagree with that. I think POI has only gotten better over time and season 5 has been just amazing, easily my favorite so far. That show has actually somewhat ruined Game of Thrones for me this year, because so much can happen in one episode, where Game of Thrones has been going so slow, at times it's hard for me to pay attention or really care at all. It has had some great moments as usual, and it probably is better than season 5, but I think that show peaked with seasons 3-4.

Watched the Game of Thrones season finale this morning. Not going to say anything for those who haven't watched yet but while I enjoyed the episode a lot there were some things I did't think were made very clear and there's also what appears to be a major production goof involving Varys.

Yeah, Game of Thrones tends to cheat a lot with how it uses the passage of time in regards to travel, especially this season. I don't let it bother me, though, since I watch the show primarily to be entertained, and the last two episodes of the season were absolutely fantastic, so I can't complain.

But there's Dornish ships in the fleet too.

Also, who the hell is Jon Snow's father? Most think it's Rhaegar Targaryen, but I reckon it's Robert Baratheon. Any ideas?

Oh, didn't see those when they focused on everyone who was there. I'll have to re-watch the end sequence I think. 

I think the episode confirmed that Rhaegar is the father though.

Well, I THINK there were Dornish ships there. That's what I got from Varys suddenly popping up there again.

And why is Jon Snow's father confirmed as Rhaegon? Yes, he had kidnapped Lyanna, but she was betrothed to Robert Baratheon, who wasn't known for keeping it in his pants, and could well have knocked her up before the kidnapping.

There are lots of parallel stories in GOT, and as there are great distances to travel, it´s sometimes unclear if the various stories happen at the same time. My guess is not all of them, and sometimes we see part of a story, which took place months before the NeXT story Begins. As with Varys journey to Dorne and his sudden appearance on the ships heading towards Westeros.

Started watching Duckman and Inferno Cop recently, the latter is one of the greatest animated series' ever made:


As for Duckman, I've only watched the first episode and it was okay. Started watching it based on a review I saw, hopefully it picks up as I go on.

...I´m actually currently watching a show with Luke Perry titled "Jeremiah" after the Hermann Hubben comics, which I loved as a child. The show is only inspired by the comics though, and in reality the show is quite far from them. It´s still a decent show, altough it´s a bit old fashioned seen with the eyes of today. https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Priestley" rel="nofollow - Jason Priestley  actually guests in an episode, so there´s a further Beverly Hills 90120 reference.

My brother decided to get Netflix for us, so between that and our equivalent of HBO GO, we no longer have to download shows. I plan on using it to finally go through Breaking Bad at some point (I've seen season 1 and thought it was good, but not great) as well as maybe give The Walking Dead another shot (I stopped at season 2 before, because it felt like it went too long with no plot advancement or nothing really happening at all.)

I watched the first episode of their Daredevil series yesterday and it was good enough that I will continue with it for now, but it's too early to tell if I'll be fully hooked on it or not. It certainly has some cringe worthy dialogue.

I had no interest in the show back in the 90s either. I think I only saw three episodes back then, and I found them pretty boring. I think their primary audience was female anyway. As an adult, I've seen a lot of the show with my fiance who owns the entire series on DVD. The first four seasons are actually okay albeit very cheesy. From the fifth season on, it degenerates into a soap opera. I can't stand seasons 5 to 10. They're horrible. Really boring and extremely badly written and acted, and the characters are all annoying. Come to think of it, in real life, none of the characters on that show would be sympathetical people in real life; they'd be a bunch of assholes. As an adult, I really don't understand why everybody loved that Dylan character back in the 90s. The guy is a total dick.

I finally started watching season 4 of Arrow this week. I actually liked season 3 a lot at the time, but in between seasons the wave of new superhero shows (and really just superhero stuff in general) was so overwhelming I felt like I needed a break from it. I finally felt like going back to Arrow, though, because I missed it, and 7 episodes in I'm loving season 4. I may eventually try season 2 of The Flash, afterward, though I never did like season 1 as much as most people, and then possibly try the other two shows in that universe if I'm not burned out again by that point.

I won't be able to see Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 over here until the DVD is out. I have been watching The Strain though. 

I've still got Westworld to check out that started last week. 

Other than that I've been watching Red Dwarf XI, which still seems to be on form though maybe not quite as good as Red Dwarf X. I've also been re-watching True Blood and am just about to finish season 2 on that. 

One series I would really like to see is The Expanse but so far it hasn't come to the UK.

Fear the Walking Dead is alright, but doesn´t quite reach the heights of The Walking Dead IMO.
 
The Strain is pretty good, but I was mostly thrilled about the first season.
 
I checked out a few clips of Westworld, and it looked promising.
 
Me and my wife just finished watching the full True Blood series. I enjoyed it and my wife really liked it a lot.
 
I´ve watched season 1 of The Expanse. It was pretty good, but didn´t make my blood boil. I´ve heard other people praising it, so it may just be me though. I´ll still Watch season 2.

Well, I think my attempts to get into the Arrowverse may officially be over. I won't go into detail, but pretty much since the second half of season 4, the show has felt like one lame cheat after another, and now it's at a point where they expect the viewers to feel something, but all I feel is that the show only got to where it is at that point in the season because of like a million cheats. So I think I'm finished with it, so that likely kills any interest I had in the other shows as well.

^Episode 2 of Westworld was also excellent. I'm a bit unsure about how they can sustain that concept over a long period (HBO apparently wants it to go at least 5 seasons or something,) but at least in the short term it looks like it'll be their best series in a while, outside of Game of Thrones.

And I'm sure I will give the Arrow shows one more try, but I at least have to give it a rest until tomorrow, because right now I'm not feeling it at all.

I actually heard quite the opposite from a colleague who has read the books and watched the show. He says season 1 features elements from later books and doesn´t follow the first book that much. I haven´t read the books, so I don´t know. The show is worth watching just for the many great sci-fi effects and Space views/planet landscapes.
 
It´s one of the few sci-fi movies I´ve watched which gets the gravity (or the lack of gravity in Space) right too.

I've only read the first book so far, but TV shows do often move events around to accommodate a series running time. I've seen a little bit of the first episode and while there was one notable character who must be from book 2 (looking at what it says on the back of my copy), the stuff from book one was very faithful.

Okay, so I did finish season 4 of Arrow after all. I actually really liked it for the most part, though there was a brief stretch around 2/3 to 3/4 of the way through where it was really frustrating. With that said, I'll be watching the two episodes tomorrow, then at least attempting all the other Arrowverse shows. (Though technically for The Flash it's not "attempting" since I did watch season 1 except the finale, because I thought it felt unnecessary to have another episode in that season. I will watch it now, though, before starting season 2.

I've just watched the second episode of series two, and it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen! I can't say too much without giving things away, but Lee Majors appears as Ash's father. There's a great Six Million Dollar Man joke in there.Wink

Finished my re-watch of True Blood yesterday. I like the whole series but can't help feeling that the early seasons were much stronger. Going though it all in one go also made me realise how many plot holes and abandoned story lines it has that I guess we're just supposed to forget about? I also think the final season left a lot of be desired in how they finished off certain character story arcs. 

Anyway no spoilers please since I know the US had it yesterday, but Walking Dead is back here in the UK tonight (I'm keeping off Facebook and news sites today just in case), along with the DC shows starting up again either this week or next, plus Westworld and The Strain still on-going, so I've got quite a few shows to keep up with all of a sudden. I'm a episode behind on The Strain but I'm really enjoying the third season so far. I think its been stronger than season two. Westworld seems to be moving the plot forward a bit too slow I think, though I'm still quite hooked to it.

^Out of the DC shows, Flash and Arrow are on week four for me already, and the other two are on week three, so that's weird if they're just starting for you now. I actually have only 5 episodes left of season 2 of The Flash now, and I've been liking that one quite a bit. I'll definitely be able to watch Legends of Tomorrow as well, but because Supergirl changed networks in between season and I can't find any legal streaming site that has season 1 in Canada, I might actually have to read detailed summaries of it and just start from scratch with season 2, which I'm sure would be a challenge.

The thing is with Supergirl is that she exists in a different universe to the others (like Earth 1 and Earth 2 in The Flash) and it's much less dependant on the other shows. Barry accidentally visits that world towards the end of Supergirl season one but the crossover doesn't affect The Flash. You may have already seen a bit where Barry was running and briefly disappeared and reappeared, which is basically the only way The Flash acknowledges it happened. Season 2 will involve Supergirl herself more in the big crossover but apparently that's three episodes and not four, so Supergirl's storylines won't be affected by it.

I've only really been watching South Park and Star Trek: The Original Series as of late. I do enjoy the new South Parks, but I can't say I really like the continuous story lines they've been doing lately. It's still funny and thought provoking, but I think they worked better as single episodes that weren't directly related to each other.

I agree on True Blood. The early seasons were stronger than the last couple of seasons, and especially the closing season wasn´t that great (still alright of course).
 
Just watched The Walking Dead Season 7 episode 1, and fuck me it´s brutal and sadistic. My wife almost couldn´t handle it Dead. I loved it. Nice surprises and I can´t wait for the next episode to air. (I hope that doesn´t reveal too much Adam Tongue).
 
My and my wife are also watching The Strain, and it´s definitely pretty good. I think I also agree on your point here about Season 3 being better than season 2. I don´t think it´s a perfect series though.
 
Still watching the UK version of Being Human. Now just started season 3. Both my and my wife enjoy it. Nice British humour and a nice amount of gore and horror too.
 
...oh and I just finished Season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead a couple of days ago. Damn that show is great.

Okay, I guess that's good to know in the event that I try Supergirl and don't like it. I actually had been planning on trying it for a while anyway, though, and this wouldn't be the first time I started a show already in progress without starting from the beginning, so it may still work out. Hopefully if I do like it I can eventually find a way to watch season 1.

I am basically caught up with both Arrow and The Flash now (just have the first three episodes of the current season for the latter) and while I have my complaints about both, they've mostly been enjoyable. I mostly think they suffer from the common network TV problem that you can't really tell a good story in 23 episodes without eventually resorting to filler or making characters do retarded things to stretch it out (both those seasons could have ended with several episodes to spare and they would have felt complete,) but I've gotten used to shows with that problem over the years, so what can you do?

I quite agree. I think Arrow suffers from this more than The Flash does because Arrow has felt buffed out by all the flashbacks for a couple of seasons now, which I find really tedious. Towards the beginning of Arrow 4/Flash 2 I was really burned out on both shows and had week's worth of episodes building up, but I got back into them with their second half's and the start of Legends of Tomorrow, which was several episodes shorter and better for it I think. 

So far on the current run of seasons I've had episode 1 of Supergirl 2 and Flash 3, with Arrow 5 starting tonight. 

Supergirl 2 started quite strong but it's clear that the network change has resulted in some production changes which so far haven't been explained too well but maybe that's to be expected when a show goes through such an upheaval. 

Flash 3 was good too though I can't help but feel after the ending that Barry's meddling with the timeline is going to come back to bite him in even more ways to come.

I won't say much for The Flash, except that the second episode made me very nervous for the season on the whole. In fact, I had to take a break after watching it, so I won't be watching the third episode until sometime later today, even though I already had it available.

Arrow, on the other hand, has been a bit slow but very promising so far, though I'm like the one fan of that show who liked last season's finale apparently, while The Flash's finale last year was one of my least favorites of the series. I think I liked both those season equally, though, because The Flash also had some great stuff like the two part trip to Earth 2, and let's just say a certain big event late in the Arrow season felt cheap and unearned to me, so I was pretty upset when it happened.

I tried Legends of Tomorrow, and I don't know if it's the show itself or the start of another DC burnout, but so far after 5 episodes it's feeling very repetitive and dull, like the worst parts of a Flash/Arrow season all thrown together. It seems instead of the shorter season helping, it's actually hurting because instead of any kind of fun episode to change things up so far, all 5 episodes have had the same end goal, and so it's just been a bunch of repetition, seeing them stabilize the timeline but getting nothing else done. I think I may need take a break, but the problem is if they're doing this 4 way crossover before the mid-season break, I'm going to have to get caught up with everything soon, so it's a tricky spot to be in.

^Well, the next two episodes ended up being more stand alone and they were both fun, so that was exactly what I was looking for after that drawn out intro phase. I especially liked the Star City episode, which shouldn't be a surprise since Arrow is my favorite of those shows.

I´m gonna Watch the last episode of season 3 og The Strain tonight. I´m looking forward to that.
 
After the thrilling first episode of Season 7 og The Walking Dead, episode 2 was a bit more run of the mill material. I love the series though, so a lot will have to happen before I lose interest.

My Arrowverse marathon gets to continue for another week or so. The only drawback of this is I've now fallen so far behind on Westworld, my best option for that is probably to just wait until the season is over to get caught up on it.

Anyway, early struggles aside, Legends of Tomorrow was roughly the same quality as Arrow 4 and Flash 2 imo, meaning it had its share of ups and downs, but it was definitely more good than bad overall. I felt the show was better when it didn't focus on the main conflict, because Vandal Savage was such a lame villain, so I'm excited for season 2 to see how the show progresses without him in the picture. I've only seen two episodes so far, but it's already been much more fun than the early parts of season 1, and I really like a certain group of new characters they introduced.

In more good news, it turns out Supergirl just showed up on netflix in Canada, so I can watch all of season 1, after all. I had heard bad things about the show early on, but so far I've watched four episodes and I'm liking it a lot already. It has more of the fun vibe The Flash had in season 1, but I like that it got the boring introductions out of the way right in the pilot, so  every episode since so far has had some great stuff (though even the pilot was honestly much better than the reviews I read had made it out to be.)

This is how I stand on the current run of Arrowverse shows:

Supergirl: episode 3
Flash: episode 2 (3 airs tonight)
Arrow: episode 2
Legends: episode 1

Supergirl 2 has got off to a great start I think. There are a few supporting characters from season 1 who haven't appeared (as yet) who are rather conspicuous by their absence which may be something to do with the network change in the US, and one set has completely changed location with very little satisfactory explanation. 

Flash 3 has been decent but some things I'm just not sure about at this point. It seems that the end of season 2 and the first episode of 3 simply existed to shake up the established continuity. It remains to be seen how that's got to work out. 

Arrow 5 has been pretty much as expected: too many flashbacks and not enough happening in the present storyline. The whole new team thing isn't doing much for me since the actual main cast is still the same, which about from perhaps Curtis implies that it isn't going to last for long.

Legends 2 I've only had the one episode from, so it's a little difficult to judge but I did enjoy episode 1. I was surprised to see Rip Hunter effectively written out of it. The Reverse-Flash showing up wasn't expected either. It was probably the most surprising of the first episodes of each show.

^One thing I read about season 2 of Supergirl is there's apparently no more Cat Grant, at least early on, which seems very odd to me considering how prominent she is in season 1 up to the point I'm at (just watched episode 14 tonight.) I can't imagine what the show would be like without her, actually, so that will be weird.

Her actress left the main cast due to the filming relocation I think. Cat departs in episode 2 of the second season, though she's supposed to reappear every now and then in a recurring role. when I'm not sure. But I thought the first episode without her was decent.

^Okay, it's good to know she may still appear again occasionally, because she's one of the best characters on the show, imo.

My DC marathon is now finally just about complete (I now have 1 episode of The Flash, 2 episodes of Arrow, 3 episodes of Legends and 5 of Supergirl, though the latter I'll probably watch this weekend, and the others I'll probably watch during week along with the new episodes.)

Surprisingly, I think Supergirl is my favorite of the four right now, mostly because I like all the major characters in it a lot, and I think the lead actress is doing an incredible job with all aspects of her character (I especially loved "Evil Supergirl" and would rank that as possibly my favorite episode between all four shows.) Needless to say, I hope the show doesn't go a bit downhill like Arrow has over the last couple years (though obviously I still like that show a lot as well.)

Finished the third season of The Strain. Pretty cool last episode, and I´m waiting in anticipation of a great final season 4.
 
Still watching the British version of Being Human with my wife, and we´re nearly finished with season 4 out of 5, and it´s still pretty great.
 
Also watching The Walking Dead Season 7 each week when new episodes drop. I like it so far.
