All this talk about series, how network TV Sucks, and how hard it is to find quality shows, and some excellent shows that fly under the radar, I need a comprehensive review of all the series I need to see.

For good entertainment, I would be willing to buy DVD sets. But I've recently picked up HBOGO by kiping it from my parents, and recently got Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Here is a listing of shows that I currently own or have seen all the episodes of. If it isn't on the list, just assume I haven't seen it.

Here is a listing of shows on my list to watch (mostly due to this thread)

I work a fuckton, so it is hard for me catch a series while it is on to get it on the DVR, but I recognize the entertainment value and am willing to go after the Must See shows. Accordingly, I'm not necessarily looking for anything that is still running. I'm up for watching stuff that has run its course.

So what say you, Planet? Which shows should I see?

UPDATED for the shows I've seen recently.

That may attribute some to my level of joy as I hadn't previously heard of it and didn't feel like scrolling. So when it was queued after the app opened I just hit play with zero expectations.

The story is interesting enough to carry it alone, but feel the attention to details throughout is what boosted the quality of it.

Any of you guys watching Snowfall? It's badass. Just when I think it's losing burst, BAM, no it is NOT.

Screamed at my TV tonight.

Anyone dipped their toesies in Gangs of London?

A SKY TV production that Cinemax bought into and saw enough in to greenlight a second season.

It's directed by the guy who did RAID and RAID Redemption.

Only seen 1 ep and 1/2 a second, but it's pretty decent. I mean a lot of the broad strokes are what you'd expect and many of the twists are, if not foreseeable, . . . let's say sampled from an existing menu. But the details and the flow is surprising how well it draws you in. Really gets into the width, breadth, depth and comprehensiveness of modern organized crime, and pulls no punches with the visuals.

Its HBO series great in capturing the time period with wardrobe, style, etc. and Jenna Coleman is balls emptying hot.
We watched all 8 episodes on Sunday. Holy shit, great show!

Did you give Amazon's Invincible a try? Its a decent addition to the animated lineups.

Rainy Saturday, lull between MCU properties. Thought I'd give the spy game a whirl.

Can vouch for each.

Gangs of London is a bit derivative, but I doubt many will mind. A little Scorsese [actually more Departed than GoNY], a little GoT, a little Bodyguard [the 2018 series, not the Whitney Houston movie], and a good bit RAID and RAID Redemption. Lots of plotting and getting to 'safe houses' followed by assaults on said safe houses.

CoaH is just plain 80s Boston crime and punishment hardball. The strength is in the writing and narrative pacing.

Snowfall is the best show on television right now. This last season was a rollercoaster.

Mythic Quest is back baby!!

Rewatching S1 to catch me back up, holds up well. Had forgotten that Caitlyn McGee [who now has a network sitcom with Eric 'Dumbass' Forman] was the basement-dwelling Media Relations chick. And man, the DQD storyline hits even harder with the Disney buyout narrative.

I think the best thing about it, on rewatch, is that it tackles SJW stuff while not sacrificing the comedy. Which is, it lets the SJW 'voices' look just as dumb, petty and clueless as the those they are 'fighting.' Tina Fey and Robert Carlock have done that in a lot of their work, and obviously the foundations with McElhenney in IASIP leans WAAY into it. Danny Pudi's Brad character is a great efficient sociopathic reminder that good intentions aren't unidirectional and often don't keep the lights on.

The creative team, McElhenny, Day, and Megan Ganz. Megan comes from Community and Modern Family, and you can see the fingerprints of keeping the bits coming to keep the narrative light.

Kevin Bacon starring and directing.

Sundays on SHO.
One more episode after tonight to finish up the second season. Think better than the first and really hitting its stride.

Separately, loved The Serpent. The 70s and Southeast Asia have always been super sketch and put them together and a character like that and you have a creepy/great story. Really enjoying Mare of Eastown thus far on HBO as well.
