    We have the book club and the movie club, how about the Television Club?

    I spent the weekend Podcasting, doing yard work.....and watching the most recent season of "Sneaky Pete" on Amazon. I enjoyed it. I liked it more than season 2.

    Mindhunter on Netflix

    Story of the FBI agents who created the term serial killer. Basically the first guys to study these types of criminals.

    Good Omens on Amazon Prime is good so far.
    The Tick was great, but no season 3

    Has anyone watched Fleabag on Prime? I've heard good things.

    I never watched The Office in a meaningful way, but spent the past 10 days watching a lot of it.

    Also started watching Love Death + Robots on Netflix, which has been interesting.

    Really good but I feel like I've been waiting 3 years for season 2.

    Two other good series that are also dragging on for years between seasons are "Better Call Saul" and "Get Shorty."

    Unfortunately, Deadly Class has been cancelled, but they put together a helluva first season and the creator is shopping it around. In the meantime, I recommend watching it here...

    Magic for Humans on Netflix is something else.

    House was good.

    Some time we should do a list of all the series we started, got tired of and gave up on. Netflix alone has hundreds of very mediocre series. Read somewhere that their business model is to create a lot of shows that do not require close attention to detail because millennials like to have shows on that they can watch while texting. TV as background which is not new.

    Bloodline
    Stranger Things
    Better Call Saul (ive tried, at least 3 times)
    Six Feet Under
    Rome

    This is also interesting because Amazon is catching Netflix with original content in my opinion. Sneaky Pete is really good. I also really like Goliath and I watched the first two episodes of "Bosch" last night. Im a Titus Welliver fan. Although watching Jamie Hector try to play a cop is a pretty big mind****

    Better Call Saul works for me because Breaking Bad becomes a kind of back story for it. How Saul "broke bad" is poignant and tragic for me because he never catches a break and his family history created such a maladaptive coping system.

    Six Feet Under is such a dark meditation on life as "sound and fury signifying nothing." Like a Greek tragedy we pull for humanity even as the gods decree a different fate. But like "Madmen," and others I could name, if you don't start to care about the characters it won't work.

    Shows where I just quit caring about the characters, and quit watching, are legion:
    Weeds
    Orange is the new black
    Masters of sex
    House of cards
    Walking dead
    Maniac
    Etc etc

    Weeds just got really dumb.
    OITNB agreed.
    House of Cards was great until the final season
    Walking Dead. Yeah I almost watch it out of Habit now. I have really gotten into FTWD though.

    I’ll add Homeland to your list as well. I got to a certain point and it just went blah.

    One show that loved when it was on was House of Lies. I loved that show.
