If anyone enjoys near future sci-fi that explores current socio-political issues with a heaping dose of philosophy, I highly recommend Hulu's Devs (also on FX for those who prefer cable to streaming).

I'm two or three episodes in. My wife was done after like the first 12 minutes. And because most of my TV time is watching with her its tough to keep on with a show. I sort of have a backlog of shows she's not interested in so currently Devs is on the list :lol:

I like what I've seen so far. Does it keep getting better?

Another show that's currently on the top of my aforementioned backlog is "What We Do In the Shadows". Based on the movie of the same name, created by Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and Taika Waititi (director of Thor Ragnorok).

Sort of a spoof reality show ala The Office with vampires. It's hilarious.

It does. It has one of the most satisfying series endings I have ever seen, definitely feeling like it paid off on the promise of earlier episodes.

I love it! Season 2 is rolling now and it's just as good as season 1.

HBO is making Watchmen completely free this weekend
Image
Image: HBO

An ongoing effort to promote black voices and talent.

[…]

The show, which stars Regina King, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Jeremy Irons, among others, jumps back and forth between different eras, but the focus remains on the conversation of race in America. Watchmen received an abundance of critical praise for its handling of issues like systemic racism and the effect of white supremacy on police forces in the United States.

“It’s all of our collective jobs to understand the history of policing in this country,” showrunner Damon Lindelof said in a recent Hollywood Reporter roundtable while talking about the show. “We kind of need to understand it, we need to do our homework, and then hopefully that will inform our storytelling.”

Notably, HBO is making the series free beginning on June 19th, otherwise known as Juneteenth, a day that many people and some companies celebrate and honor as the day slavery ended in the US. Watchmen will be free from June 19th through June 21st on HBO.com.

We did Haven-- 5 seasons.

We did Eureka-- my wife didn't want to watch the last few episodes. I still bust a gut at the animated Christmas special.

We started Cheers-- and Netflix removed it :(

We have started Chuck.



We've been in some dark and weird stuff (like Haven) so we need some lighter fare. We just hit the episode with the introduction of Jeffster -- those guys crack me up.
