Finished Obi-Wan Kenobi. I don't get the haters. It was awesome. Not perfect, but still awesome.

Up to date on The Boys. Holy crap, this season is amazing. I tink I'm going to go back to the beginning and rewatch the first two seasons

Up to date on Stranger Things. Can't wait for July 1.

The wife and I are watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It's ok. She loves it. I tolerate it.

Next up for me is Umbrella Academy Season 3, but I'm not dying to get back into it.

Wife and I finished the Expanse a while back. It was mostly great, though I think the next to the last season had the first half which was DRAGGING before it finally picked up. One of our recent favorites.

We're now watching The Mandalorian when we can, and it's fun explaining things I do know to my wife as her Star Wars knowledge is adorably limited. She tries though, so bless her.

Finished Obi-Wan myself and liked it. Still not as good as The Mandalorian IMO. Watching Bosch Legacy with my wife and enjoying it. Need to get caught up on Star Trek Strange New Worlds. I'm into Season 3 of Breaking Bad. Ya I know I'm late to the party. Not sure why I resisted watching it for so long but I'm enjoying it.

Breaking Bad is still one of my all-time favorite shows. It's up there with The Sopranos and Game of Thrones. The Mandalorian is pretty great. Season 2 was the best. My wife and I have been watching Bosch. I think we have watched the first four or five seasons.

Slowly watching Watchmen. Takes lots of focus.


I've been going through old physical media I have trying to get rid of them so I'm watching lots of movies. Stanley Kubrick collection is what I'm working on now. Man BD quality sure was worse than we thought.

A lot depends on the source material and the care put into it. There are some really bad early blurays out there. If you are really into it, it's fun to compare some that had a better release later. I've watched all three Fifth Element releases. It's night and day comparing the original to the 2nd and 3rd. Gains from 2nd to 3rd are marginal but noticeable.

It was the Kubrick collection so older source but so grainy.

Maybe I got it twisted in my head, but I felt like the next to last season first half was painful and it picked up later. But maybe I'm crossing some wires as it's been a bit since we've watched season 5

We are very behind due to the new baby.

We are caught up on Stranger Things
Waiting to start The Boys, Umbrella Academy, Better Call Saul (newest season)

I'm finishing up The Last Kingdom and loved every moment. I got 2 episodes left. It has been my 1am-3am baby feeding TV show.

Right now, the only current show I'm watching is The Old Man, the new Jeff Bridges series on FX. Nothing very original about it but I'm enjoying it so far, three episodes in. Loved the first episode but the last two have leveled off a bit.

The final season of Better Call Saul resumes on July 11th after a brief (and annoying) mid-season break. It's been a great season thus far. So eager to get back into it. The more I've rewatched it, the final scene of the previous episode has become one of my favorite scenes from any series.

I had watched the first 2 seasons when they originally aired and enjoyed them, my wife had watched several more, so we decided to watch a season with the kids. They ended up getting really into it, so we binged that whole season in a weekend and we're almost done with another one now.)

I loved Happy Days growing up, watched it a ton. Tried to watch a few episodes with the kids about a year ago and it didn't hold up as well as I expected. It was season 1 though, I feel like it probably gets better by season 2 or 3.

Yeah I know it gets much worse later on and the whole "jumped the shark" thing, but that wasn't until season 5. Season 1 just felt like how with a lot of shows, the first season is a little rough, but then by season 2 they start to find their groove and things get better.

I watched it a lot with my dad growing up and loved it. I've wanted to watch through the entire series for a while and I finally have my wife on board (she's less open than I am about watching older stuff, but she does it anyway for me). It's also on Paramount+, so now is the perfect time while I have that long subscription paid for.

I had no interest in this show at all, but my wife started it and loved it, and wanted to watch it with me. She suffers through plenty of stuff that I want to see but she has no interest in, so I agreed. I ended up really enjoying it. There are some aspects I don't care for, but overall I love it. I love the quick-witted conversations the characters have. Suzie and Abe are my favorite characters for sure.

I grew up in a Jewish family, so Midge's parents are hysterical to me. They remind me of my grandparents, although no where near that crazy.

You mentioned wanting to watch Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. That is one of my all-time favorite shows. I wish Fox had kept it going. It's been probably close to 15 years since I last saw it, so I wonder if it still holds up. Summer Glau was fantastic. Whatever happened to her? She had a few good shows get cancelled and then fell off the face of the Earth.

I loved Happy Days as a kid and had the toys for it. The same company made all their toys and it had super hero characters, Star Trek, Happy Days, Mork and Mindy, Chips, and so many other shows. I played with all the toys back then until they broke and then my Mother gave away all my toys away one day I was at school without my permission and I had so much valuable and rare Star Wars toys.

As for Happy Days you really need to start watching that series from about season four as the filming sucked especially in season one and got a lot better. It was mainly a family show that you would watch with your whole family. They had a lot of good messages that tried to teach and hardly any sex talk that didn't keep the show from still being entertaining. Also use to watch Cheers and many other shows as a family until my mom and dad separated in 1988. Before that we ate dinner together and watched our favorite shows together every night. That was typical of families in the 80's that I miss dearly today and the internet and cell phones have taken over that time and I feel its so wrong.

My wife loves that crap. ER, Grey's Anatomy, The Resident, The Good Doctor, House...she loves them all. I refuse to watch them anymore. I can't stand the episodic nature of network TV anymore...the case of the week. Same thing with Law shows and most cop shows. I can't watch those anymore.

Nothing that hasn't been said before about ai/robots but it's very good overall with a great presentation. If you like sci-fi and anime, it's a slam dunk. One of the best anime of the last 10 years for me, top 5 probably.

Season 3 kind of killed the show for me. I'm not sure I'll watch season 4. Season 3 felt like they had no idea what they were doing with the show anymore. Lots of competing ideas and plots that never came together. And it lost the charm of the first two seasons. It felt like the show was taken over by a new person who wanted to change the direction of the story entirely and make it about something else.

We're currently binging Star Trek: Discovery. We've binged all of the Star Treks so far over the past year or two. I had skipped Voyager when it was on TV because I didn't think I'd like it, but then we ended up really enjoying it -- so we've done the rest. After Discovery we'll do Picard probably. Or I have to check to see what the right "order" is.

I think that the first season of Discovery is one of the best seasons of Star Trek I've ever watched. The S2 was ok. And we're on S3 which is meh, at best. Sad for the downhill decline. frown

Some of my favorite sci-fi ever. It is a complete series as well now, 8 books.

I liked the fact that space is being explored but there isn't interstellar travel so it's inbetween low and high sci-fi. I'd go into more details about things the "mid" sci-fi creates but I don't want to spoil. I will caution that it follows multiple characters which only increases as the series goes on, and some go away. It's more interested in telling a story than it is being a character drama. It's not quite Steven Erikson narrative style, but yeah.

I ripped through the novels, but did trail off in regards to watching the tv series.

It is nothing like The Boys. Basically, it's family of adopted super powered people that are trying to save the world. But it's really weird. There's a talking monkey. One of the characters super power is strength, but under his shirt, he looks like a gorilla. It's just a really weird show, but it's a fun watch.

I finished season 3 of The Boys. Without getting into a political discussion....I usually don't like when shows try to make a political or social statement. But I really like how The Boys is doing it. A lot of things going on echo our current political climate (good and bad), but they're not being too obvious about it.

The Boys is very obvious with the political satire, it's not subtle at all. It also makes fun of both sides of the political spectrum, despite what Review Bombers are saying.

That said, I still love it. Rug original comic was made as a post 9/11 political satire so it's always been like that.

There's obviously a political satire to the show. Things like the America First demonstrators rooting for Homelander and the liberal LGBTQ and Me Too demonstrators rooting against him are obvious. I think the more subtle stuff is that Homelander seems to be loosely based off a certain former president of ours. I won't go into details for the sake of not getting into a political discussion.

Yeah, she just got done reading the book and wanted to watch it. It's from the same author as Gone Girl

I started re-watching Fargo last night. I forgot how good the first season is. BBT is amazing in the show. I've only seen the first two seasons. And didn't know there were 4 seasons, with a 5th on the way until last night. So figured I'd get caught up on the first 4 before 5 drops.

Finished The Boys - Season 3 a few days ago. I really enjoy this show.

Watching Westworld - Season 3 as well. I know the show jumped the shark, but I keep watching it, must like The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead, because I feel like I'm already in too deep.

Yeah, BBT is fantastic. Season 1 is really good. I think season 2 is great too. For some reason I only watched the first two seasons too. I think, at the time, there were so many shows I was watching that I had to cut something out.

I'm watching season 3 of Evil. It's kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. It's a stupid show, but I find it entertaining. I'm annoyed they made it a Paramount+ exclusive, although it's probably better than if it was still on CBS. I got a free month trial, but I won't be continuing after I'm done with this show.

Im watching Treme right now. I really enjoy it. Its more of an experience than a show though. May not be everyones cup of tea but i enjoy all the music performances.

Just finished the 3rd season of The Umbrella Academy last night. I liked it way more than I thought I would!

I honestly can't wait for them to confirm the 4th season! That cliffhanger ending leaves so many questions...

Years ago I watched Smallville. Around 2 years ago I started rewatching it for the nostalgia. An episode here and there. I've been enjoying it. The other day I got up to the final season, season 10. Watching lengthy shows like this, you feel like you really get to know the characters.

Not that there's an answer to the following, and I'm sure others have asked it, but I wonder how things would have turned out had

Clark told Lex his secret right from the beginning. Lex seems like a genuinely good person in the beginning who just wants to do the right thing. Ah, who knows.



Does such a question even need a spoiler box? I'm sure most people who are fans of Superman or comics know that Lex

is Clark's rival.

I guess it can't hurt to use a spoiler box, just in case.

I always thought that was the point though. Lex becomes who he is in part because of Clarke and how he was treated in their relationship. I haven't seen the show since it originally aired. So my memory of a lot of it is very fuzzy. But I remember it playing out like Lex could have been a good dude. If not for Clarke.

@Archer you make a good point, how maybe things turned out the way they did because of how Lex was treated and not trusted. Though, a theme continuously present in the show was that Lex kept doing things that made him lose Clark's trust, and that therefore Clark couldn't tell him. Ah, who knows. It's not like they're going to make an alternate show.

I also watched smallville recently. While it certainly had ups and downs i loved it overall. I think they could have ended after 7 or 8 seasons instead of dragging it to 10 seasons of 20+ episodes each.
