    I love the Rookie, so easy going and fun and Nathan Fillion always plays such likeable characters. If you haven’t seen it you should also watch Castle, he’s in that with almost the same personality.

    Can't get into Resident Alien. Doesn't seem to be able to decide what it wants to be or who it's target audience is. Sometimes it near the knuckle, later it's a kids program. Pity, Alan Tudyk usually hits the mark.

    Alright, Invincible was a great recommendation... I thought it was pretty cool and all as I was watching the first episode, but then right at the end of it they hooked me in hard... so I then ended up bingeing the rest of the show and staying up way too late... 10/10

    After seeing it mentioned here we have started watching Marcella, an interesting take on a detective series. The main character, seemingly, suffering from some form of neurological problems. Even tho we are only part way through the first series it is somewhat compelling. Apparently it is written by Hans Rosenfeldt, the creator of The Bridge series, altho Marcella is set in the UK and in English.
    Last episode of season 1 of Lucifer to watch now, kinda getting used to the cheese, it was mentioned earlier in the this thread, iirc, that the Lucifer character is similar to the actor Kenneth Williams, don't know why but that helps when watching it.
    About half way through The Punisher season 2. Not as enjoyable so far as the first series but still worth considering.

    Superstore - 20minutes of heavenly good entertainment! binged all the seasons in the last few weeks and i cant think of anything lately in the last few years that has matched its comedy. Glad they wrapped it up when they did as it was getting weaker in the last few seasons.

    I’m into that too, let’s be fair, it’s quite lightweight, but I record it and watch it regularly.
    I felt bad for Jonah when Amy went off to California, and I can imagine Dina and Garrett maybe getting together eventually.
    It’s a weird show, but in a good way, the antics of Cheyenne and Mateo keep me laughing.

    Some of its comedy/timing is genius for sure! it touches on the harshness of that sort of job and the fruitlessness of fighting for good and you really do feel for Jonah and the other characters at times. Now its on Netflix hopefully it will gain more recognition!

    Just started watching this myself a few days back, for my light TV at the end of the day. Seems good fun.

    After binging Sons Of Anarchy (started great, withered away at the end) we've started The Crown. Just finished season 2 last night, really enjoying it so far.

    Currently watching Succession.

    I like the premise and it seems like a decent show, but I've never come across anything with such an poor cast. None are what you might consider attractive, fair enough, but more importantly all the men in it are weak, idiotic personalities with no redeeming qualities at all. None of them have any substance. It makes it hard to watch.

    Where are the strong characters, or intelligent underdogs, hungry young kids trying to rise up the ranks etc... It has none of that at all, and very little charm.

    Can't help but think how good it could be with a decent cast.

    Who's hyped it? General thoughts range from acceptable to lacking.

    I thought it was perfectly serviceable, but certainly never hyped it or saw anyone hyping it.

    I enjoyed it, thought the characters worked well together and Mackey’s acting was better than usual. Just some Marvel fun tbh, not as deep as WandaVision but more action packed and no pointless first few episodes.

    I’m into the second season of Superstore and think it’s great, really easygoing, fun laugh out loud watch. Main characters are all likeable in their own way and funny.

    Superstore is a good lightweight comedy for filling the time when you're on a break or something.

    I'd like to see a spin off about Garret, as I don't think he got the same level of closure the other characters did. He was definitely one of the better personalities.

    If you like Superstore have a look at Kims Convenience - I think it's even better.

    Watching Snowfall, wow what a great show. Like a cross between Breaking Bad and The Wire, with a great set of characters and a top evolving storyline.
    Also started on Mythic Quest which is surprisingly also excellent.

    I won't lie, this was my first thought when I read 'don't see the hype'. No, I didn't see it either? :p

    Thanks, never heard of it, but will add to my watchlist :)

    Same with this! Looks good, added, thanks.

    After initially being unsure, we both fell for the sneak-attack charms of Kim's. Looking forward to the final season.

    See youuuuu.

    Finished watching Avatar: the last airbender. Absolutely loved it. Great show and has it all. Light hearted, but with emotional depth and feels. Lots of ‘finding yourself’ and ‘making choices’ malarkey. Consistently funny. Some good action. I cared what happened.

    Double thumbs up from me.
