    Since it's the lounge area, I thought I would ask. I'm sure I'm supposed to be grinding away somewhere but... meh.

    In no particular order (except for the first one), here are some of my faves.

    Game of Thrones.

    Breaking Bad

    [​IMG]

    The Walking Dead (which I need to find time to get back into).

    [​IMG]

    Vikings

    [​IMG]

    The Blacklist - I love anything with James Spader in it.

    There's a lot of other shows I would like to list but these are the only ones I go out of my way (or have) to watch. What about you?

    Walking Dead was great.

    For real horror, try Hannibal.
    I'm hard to shock or disgust, but that show...

    For heart-rending grief and crime, "the killing"

    I'll add later, on mobile right now and not enough coffee yet.

    As gay as it sounds, Hell's Kitchen I like. Watching Ramsay blow a gasket is always entertaining.

    The Blacklist seems to have lost its focus/plot since Liz is pregnant in real life; the last couple of episodes I have not liked.

    The first season or two were great.

    I've been meaning to watch Hannibal; I heard a TV critic raving about how great the show was. I think it was recently canceled.

    For me it's...
    • The Wire
    • Game of Thrones
    • Silicon Valley
    • Rick and Morty
    • House of Cards (mostly Season 1 and Season 2)
    Really in my opinion nothing will ever top The Wire - it is a masterpiece and in my opinion is the greatest piece of television ever created. With that being said Game of Thrones is pretty incredible, and definitely my favorite thing that's on right now. If you do like Game of Thrones - read the books!! They go much deeper than the show could ever hope to go, and will suck you in just as much as the show does.

    The Wire was the best Series that I've ever watched, it's on another level. From that era I also liked Rome on HBO.

    I wasn't thrilled with Season 3 of House of Cards either, the first season was epic.

    I've found myself becoming really choosy about what I'll sit down and watch nowadays. Having a couple of boys means free time becomes a bit more important when you have some to spare.

    Is Heroes Reborn really good? I loved Heroes but haven't given Reborn a shot yet.

    IMO it's a great show, not as good as the original tv series but yet I enjoyed it. If you were a fan of Heroes, you should give it a try.

    If your a space nerd you should try "The Expanse"

    The show is about 200 years into the future where Earth and Mars are about to go to war with each other.

    I started watching Mad Men last year and I'm still working my way through it (currently on Season 5). It's one of my favorite shows, just it's been taking me a long time to get through it!

    Meanwhile I'm now almost done with the latest season of House of Cards and I'm disappointed in the incredibly unrealistic direction it's going in. It feels much more now like a drama that happens to vaguely have some politics in it. Plus they are no longer filming in Baltimore!

    I binge watched Billions this past weekend, Paul Giamatti (aka Pig Vomit) is an amazing actor and Damian Lewis is great in his role as Hedge Fund Billionaire trading on insider information. I can't wait for the Season Finale on Sunday.

    • Really enjoyed Breaking Bad, House, like most series of 24 (should it be 12 now?)
    • Light, predicitable viewing: NCIS, CSI Cyber
    • South Park still good for me.
    • Dark Matter had some interesting twists.
    • You, Me and the Apocalypse was patchy but good.
    • Deutschland 83 - I lived through the era so got mental flashbacks occasionally.
    • Humans - hoping there's going to be a second series
    • London Spy - heavy stuff even for BBC2.

    Is The Expanse an action type show like the new Star Wars or more of a political intrigue space soap opera?
