    HBO's Watchmen is great. Written by Damon Lindelof, same bloke who did LOST and the much better The Leftovers. Similarly a big mind fuck just with more blue dicks.

    Also on HBO, but done mainly by BBC, His Dark Materials. An adaptation of the Phillip Pullman books from the '90s. Two episodes out so far, but enjoying it. got James McAvoy and Ruth Wilson from the Affair (also good tv).

    No, only started again the other day. 5 episodes then I think it goes on hiatus again for a bit more again.

    I can see how dweebs get all defensive about how much moooorrrre they like the show than regular people and tick everyone else off. They're like the Tool fans of tv.

    "Oh, but you dont really understand the show because you're not like me and Rick."

    Get started!

    2 eps into this season and it just seems too clever for its own good. Less laughs, more smarty pants. At least this weeks ep the Glutes all had Niew Zllnd accents.

    The Good Place feels like its taxiing in towards the end and seems too preachy

    1 ep into Watchmen and man it is harsh. Wildly conceptually though.

    Silicon Valley still #goddamn 1. Lmfaq off at Jared. BEST.

    This season has started really well. It is so accurate in terms of software engineers too.

    I think I fell asleep watching S4E3 of The Good Place the other night. I get the feeling they've baited us by reminding us of the guy in the Ted Danson suit, then made us think that the bad place did the ol' switcharoo in the train at the end of E1 by making him more awkward in E2. But I suspect he just soiled hisself.

    Edit: I tried copying DP like the unoriginal cretin that I am by trying to hide the spoiler, but used too dark a yellow.

    So for me, the biggest TV highlights for the year have been the second seasons of both Fleabag and Barry......

    Far and away the best comedy series in a long while.
