    Punisher on Netflix is really good, imo. I also liked "Frontier" and am watching "Wanted" now. I just started watching "Squizzy" on Amazon Prime, and that seems pretty good as does "Informer."

    So, maybe just go with 1 word titles of 2 or 3 syllables.

    Yeah I think, if season 2 was called something else, I wouldn't be so down on it.

    I also liked 'The Night of' which felt more like a True Detective-y show.

    Six Feet Under was very good. It had its soap opera like moments that kept it from being excellent. It had a lot of thought provoking aspects and the best ending of a serialized show ever.

    Just finished season 2, was solid but I felt like I got nothing out of it. Season 3 is solid so far, got my theories

    Agree that True Detective season 1 was one of the best ever, imo. Season 2 a complete bust.
    Agree that The Wire is awesome. I still think Breaking Bad was the GOAT.
    Homeland was good season 1 and maybe season 2. Season 3 was meh and then I lost Showtime.
    Veep is awesome. Love it. Eastbound and Down for more hilarity.
    Westworld season 1 was great. Not so much a fan of season 2.
    Man in the High Castle is interesting (Amazon Prime).
    Heard Barry is good but haven't started. Any thoughts?
    Game of Thrones. Good show. Overrated. Don't @ me. The end.

    I’m really surprised no one has mentioned The Expanse (sci fi channel and now on Amazon Prime TV). Takes a few episodes to get going, but then it just gets better and bettrt

    Forgot about Homeland. First 3 seasons were definitely the best but I'm still sucked in. Last season was a great return though so I'm looking forward to the final season.

    I certainly thought Breaking Bad was up there towards GOAT status but it didn't permanently damage my inner being like The Wire did. Season 4 of The Wire is quite possibly the greatest season in television history.

    Ray Donovan was alot better than i was expecting.
    Strike Back is another one that is fun to watch. not much plot or anything but alot of fun
    Homeland - agree the first 3 seasons were great. took me forever to watch after that but i finally did and it really did get alot better
    Star Trek Discovery
    The Last Kingdom
    Titans - Was surprised by this one. its alot of origin episodes in the first season. hopefully season 2 picks up for a more complete story arc over a season

    House of Cards
    Orange Is the New Black
    Masters of Sex

    Watched season one, and it was so good I went online and ordered all the books. They’re even better than the TV series, and a very accessible read. No dense prose like the Game of Thrones series.

    Good call. Second season was pretty good, but nowhere near S1 in quality. S3 lost me.

    If you loved S1 of true detective I predict you will also love Ozark.

    Good call. Loved Ozark.

    You know me so well. That should scare you.

    Dangit, I'm still a few episodes away.... I've had "Twilight Zone" by Golden Earring stuck in my head ever since I saw season 3 (or 2?)

    "I am the Night" on TNT is intriguing so far. Not enough episodes to figure out how good it is yet.
