    Some of the episodes of CCGC are not just unfunny but are at times downright depressing. Just saw the Gary Shandling episode. I gather he died a few weeks after it aired. Or Michael Richards when he admits how he is never doing standup again and is essentially 'broken' as a person after his meltdown at a heckler 10 years ago.

    I am watching the second season of The Crown and caught up on How to Get Away With Murder.

    Finished off Series 3 of The Fall - I imagine that's the end of that show. Started Mindhunter (Netflix) - the first episode had some awful writing and acting at various points, but overall it seems pretty good (I'm three episodes in now).

    I started 'Person of Interest' last night. Interesting premise. Good mix of action and suspense and it's got the added bonus of being complete. They made five seasons and all five are on Netflix. Nothing worse than bingeing on a whole season of a current show in week or two and then having to wait another year to find out what happens next. For that reason I'm a big fan of shows that have already ended.

    Just finished Season 7 of Shameless (the last season available on Netflix). It's a pretty good show. Not really what I usually watch, but I enjoy it.

    I'm about 1/2 way through the new season of Jessica Jones. I think it's better than the first season. I've also started the second season of the British version of Wallander.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    I agree it's a great show. This season was a little more ponderous than Season 6. I think maybe one more season and it's a wrap.

    I am binge watching Bravo's Imposters Season 1 in advance of Season 2 starting in a few weeks.

    They've already done Season 8, but it's not out on Netflix now. I think Season 7 was definitely thin on the comedy, but I didn't mind it too much. I think it's gotta be close to the end, considering everyone seems to have their lives together.

    Somehow I was off a season. 8 was a little more ponderous (I have Showtime) but the last episode while not epic did allude to some interesting things in Season 9.

    I am patiently waiting for Season 2 of Handmaid's Tale which is supposed to drop in April.

    I’m 1/2 way through the second season also and I totally disagree. I liked the first season far more, though this one is still pretty good. My wife agrees with you however.

    There are aspects I don't like of this season. The first season was introducing the character and the resolution of the Kilgrave story line. It was also metaphor about how people act in an abusive relationship. This season was more about finding out about her past. There has also been an undercurrent of drug abuse. JJ does not deal with her past and it drags her down. She is an anti heroine. It adds to the dark tone of the series. It will be interesting to see if they try to have her come to terms with what happened.

    Started Season 4 of Bosch on Amazon Prime. Solid. Will move on to the first season of Killing Eve (BBC America) next.

    Finished up Lost in Space, 3%, and Dear White People. Working on Legends of Tomorrow. Lost in Space was okay. It'll be interesting to see what they do next season. 3% was okay, but the first season was better. Same for Dear White People. Legends of Tomorrow is meh, but I'll watch it.

    I have liked it so far. I'm getting close to the end of the first season. I haven't really been "binge watching" it though. Off and on really. I'm basically in love with Judy (Taylor Russell). Don't worry, shes 23.

    right? I watch a lot of dark shows, so that show breaks it up for me - there are an unreasonably amount of murders on that island but we can set that aside

    I am addicted to Perry Mason. I watch it every night at 10:30 on MeTV. That and Mannix.

    Mrs. Maister got the complete Perry Mason DVD collection last Xmas. What she likes most about Mr. Mason - all his clients are innocent and none of them ever lies.

    I am happy when I can find a show worth watching. Better Call Saul is one of those shows.

    I just finished S1 of The Flash. Like it - anything with Jesse L. Martin is worth a second viewing.

    Caught up on Death in Paradise, Sherlock (and the extras), The Crown, The Keepers, and watched a few movies. I'm still behind on recommended shows, but I'm also dealing with house showings, the realtor, movers, and long-distance job hunting.

    Hubby and I started Wild Wild Country, and will watch that together on the weekends. Really good show - that Sheela is crazy!

    I was sick one day last week and watched the first half of Marvel's Luke Cage Season 1.

    I was good up till then and now that I have about 3 episodes left I don't really care about it.

    I want to get into Better Call Saul, but I'm not in the mood for heavy dramedy, though I loved all the Saul Goodman appearances in Breaking Bad.

    I think I'll binge all of The Good Place, instead.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Every day is today. Yesterday is a myth and tomorrow an illusion.

    I'm two episodes into it and will probably watch it out. The first episode was a little rough, but it got better in the second one, enough so that I will finish it. I'll probably get back into British version of Wallander.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    The first half of the new season of Kimmy Schmidt dropped on Wednesday and my wife and I powered through it already (it was only 6 episodes). The humor was soooo much darker than the first 3 seasons but it was still really funny. Now I have to wait until next January for the final 7 episodes.
