    I told you the last season was ok. Now start watching "The Good Doctor". You will enjoy it. If you liked House, MD with a quirky doctor, you will like it.

    I actually haven't watched House

    I generally enjoy dark stuff, stuff that has an epic feel to it, and occasionally irreverent comedy. Although that is a really general description

    The length of the show is what puts me off for House.

    I have watched the first three episodes but knowing that I have 120 hours to go...

    I'll probably dive into it at a point, I heard it had a lot of red pill moments;

    Yea Everytime I see a show has like a bazillion seasons I am reluctant to start it

    Also somehow I forgot to include Archer! That's like my favorite show

    Yes, I tried to get into Dexter but just could not due to knowing there are too many seasons to watch. I don't like to watch more than two hours of TV per night. When I was younger it would have been double.

    That's one reason I had put off watching dexter for so long until recently when I binged the entire series

    If you feel this way I'd recommend that you just go in with the mindset you are only watching the first 4 seasons, as the overall arch of the show kind of goes to shit after that. In general the show is really, really good

    I'm watching Hitler's Circle of Evil, a dramatized documentary. Episode 1 was a bore, but the second episode was a little better.

    I'm afraid WestWorld2 will be a flop,just like TD2.
    War and Peace was excellent for me...If only for Paul Dano.
    The Crown is the Patek Philippe of the TV series...Refined and sophisticated.
    Claire Foy who plays the Queen was phenomenal.

    West world season 1 didn't blow me away, I probably won't bother with season 2. I also think I was just about the only person who enjoyed true detective season 2, it maybe wasn't as "deep" as season 1 but I found it highly entertaining

    Just finished the Expanse season 2. Really awesome show

    Now need to decide what I'm going to follow up with into the late hours of the night. Start The Path season 3? Or a movie? Important decisions I'm making here

    Done with counterpart. Moved on to miniseries "Wild wild country". Absolutely amazing stuff. Must check it out. I have heard some of audio lectures of osho and guy seriously had some amazing wisdom but this series is not about him but shiela.




    Also after unsuccessfully asking many guys to watch Utopia as none of them heard about it , I have started to show them its first scene and most of them are now hooked . So doing the same thing here.:D @kj6723 @Afro_Vacancy @Calchas @WhitePolarBear @DoctorHouse
    (Whole series is available on YouTube)



    It's soundtrack made for people on Mars


    Sorry for fanboy in me got a lil carried away. But srsly after watching 100s and 100s of shows, I can't believe this stuff is so underrated. Where is Jessica Hyde?

    I finished Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Untold_History_of_the_United_States
    Grade: B+

    A lot of good content and information that is normally untold, but it's fact after fact after fact after fact with less actual narrative and discussion. It also only discusses the 20th century history.

    Currently binge watching the latest season of The Path on hulu. I forgot how riveting this show is, I think moreso if you came from a religious upbringing and at any point had a crisis of faith. What's also nice is they brought in the chick from Slumdog Millionaire for this season, I didn't remember her being this fucking hot

    Does anyone else feel like the current trend of including a token gay story arc feels cringingly forced? In this show there's a dude who's straight for the first 2 seasons, hooking up with chicks, and then just randomly he now decides he wants to make out with a dude o_O I mean....does that actually happen? Ah let me guess, here come the LGBT community and their hipster counterparts to tell me I'm clearly a suppressed homosexual :rolleyes:

    I have no problem with someone being gay or lesbian or bisexual but you are right most of those plots so badly written and are really forced. It has become a bigger thing than just to show racial diversity or religious diversity for the sake of it. Like @WhitePolarBear said about that lesbian angle in The end of f**** world.

    But its also a fact that it gives the show a great deal of trp. Sense8 became a cult for this very reason. The 100 ratings nosedived just after a major lasbian character was killed due to severe lgbt backlash.
    I suspect in next Stranger things season they are going to show that Bily hargrove is a gay too.

    They are going to go the "overtly compensatory angry dude with conservative father is actually gay" route

    Dude is a beautiful man

    Sense8 became a hit because it is a magnificent show that rewards intelligence and empathy.

    Unfortunately, it starts slow.

    Well clues are there. Not interested in Nancy, homo vibes with Steve. And son of white sueramacist grow up to be a gay. Have not we seen it before?

    By the way this scene was good.
