    Ah, didn't know you could do that. Will add it back to the list.

    Just finished the first season of What/If, that was pretty good!

    1 episode left of The Haunting of Hill House, and it is fantastic.

    Better than any horror film released in the past decade, well acted, interesting, good writing, creepy and not relying purely on jump scares.

    Bit of a head**** that the younger version of the dad is Elliot from ET!

    Strong praise and you've made my mind up to give this a go after considering it for a while. Im bored to death of jump scares in mainstream horror and find myself watching more lower budget indie offerings or straight to DVD type stuff for my horror fix these days.

    It's on my short list of next to watch as it goes, supposed to be quite unnerving. One of the best horror/thrillers i've watched in recent months is "What Keeps You Alive"...turns a lot of expectations on their head.

    I'm currently watching season 2 of Happy! which is continuing the fun insanity of season 1 but taken in new and even stranger directions.

    There are several complete "wait, did that just happen?" moments every episode, including some awesome fights.

    Started watching Lucifer but the main character put me off so I don't think I'll bother with it anymore. I find it really hard to get into something which runs for a long period of time but I'll keep looking/take suggestions from anyone on here. :)

    I like sci-fi, horror,... pretty much most genres, really.

    Peaky Blinders
    Mad Men
    The 100
    Stranger Things

    And some great comedies:
    Atlanta

    Silicon Valley is probably my favourite comedy of the last few years.

    Funny you ask, I only finished Season 2. And I'd say it was a good show. Yes Season 1 was best, for the very reason you state with the Process.
    Definitely stick with it, the last 4 episodes where very good, when they started expanding on the off shores founding members.
    Looking forward to watching Season 3. Hopefully it'll be the Season yet.

    Just finished Line of Duty, very enjoyable throughout, look forward to next series.

    I know that there has been a few people saying it goes too far and most series end with a shootout but still I enjoyed it.

    You can watch every series between Netflix and iPlayer if you're quick.

    Killing Eve next I think.

    Requote as I watched the first episode last night based on your recommendation and it's excellent. There is a sense of dread throughout the entire episode and it made me feel very uncomfortable, hope the rest of the series is as good. Only counted two jump scares in the first episode so that's an instant thumbs up :D

    I've also woke up with it on my mind immediately whereas most other horror is generally forgettable so that shows how good it is.

    :D

    There are only a few jumps peppered throughout, but there is one that everyone agrees is so badass it gets a pass, everyone craps their pants with it.

    It's very well made and relies heavily on atmosphere rather than jump scares, although those are well executed. :cool:
