The wife and I love This is Us. It is a tremendous show but at the same time a very depressing show. Other than sports that is really the only thing I try to watch every week.

The Good Place--very engaging storyline. The Season One finale was a great ending. I thought it dipped a little bit the next season, but it's picked up again.

Superior Donuts--Ever have one of those shows you watch but don't know why? One you fully recognize is garbage but for whatever reason you still use it as a time-killer? Don't get me wrong, if you haven't seen it yet, don't bother.

Baskets--It's a good show, though I haven't bothered with the last couple of seasons for some reason.

Bob's Burgers--The best comedy on tv. The characters really grow on you.

Fresh off the Boat--It's a decent show.

The Last Man On Earth--I hated the first season apart from the finale, but since then it's been really good. I haven't liked many of these current Mexican house episodes, but all in all it's been really good. To a degree they're stuck trying to have celebrity episodes to boost ratings and try not to get cancelled, when the writers would otherwise be moving the story forward more.

Black Mirror (Netflix) - Modern Twilight Zone is the best way to explain it. Great show.

Wentworth (Netflix) - Extremely underrated. About 10X better than Orange is the New Black

The Man in the High Castle (Amazon Prime) - Very thought provoking alternate reality in which the Nazis won WW2.

Handmaid's Tale (Hulu) - Some really good performances, also alternate reality type TV

As you can see, I don't watch much network television. I do get into Shark tank and Superstore some.

I don't watch a lot of TV and what I do I can only catch up on when the kid is napping so I'm usually pretty far behind on my shows.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Great show that FOX is doing everything to destroy by randomly giving it multi-month breaks for no reason. When it first started I didn't think it would make a second season but has turned out pretty solid.

Last Man on Earth
Pretty much everyone who started watching this show has come to hate it, but still watches it. It's so up and down and you never really know what to expect from an episode. It's supposed to be a comedy but there are some episodes with zero comedy and the humor is all over the place from super low brow to intellectual to meta. I can see why people start to hate it because you can't peg the show in any category. Some episodes are slapstick comedy, some are full on depressing drama, some are uplifting human stories, it just covers everything.

The Mick
Stupid comedy you don't have to think about.

LA to Vegas
Finally got around to watching it. Pretty solid. Captain Dave is becoming one of my favorite characters of all time.

The Detour
Really underrated show. Great writing, great characters. Season 2 wasn't great but season 3 stepped it back up. And how can you ignore such great guest starts as Todd Palin and Bret "The Hitman" Hart?

Superstore
When it debuted, NBC was trying to push it as the new Office. It certainly isn't that but it does sort of have that feel.

I'm not watching a ton right now, but the ones I am watching, I really enjoy.

Homeland - Going to start the new season any day here now. So intense!
The Americans - I really enjoy this and it seems like they've gotten in to their stride again the last few years. Spying, Russia, 80s, what more could you ask for?

Game of Thrones - Who's not watching it?


I really think I'd enjoy Superstore and believe you've brought it up a few times in the past. I'll have to get on it. I need a few comedies in my life! I started watching re-runs of the office because I've been too lazy to find something else.

I want to start watching:
Silicone Valley
Stranger Things

Two shows I watched from the beginning, so I'm stuck with:

Walking Dead- I have it on, but end up doing stuff on my phone more than watching intently.

Gold Rush

Weekly:

Shark Tank
The Middle/ Modern Family


Shows I binge:

Sneaky Pete- Good call by Brew4U. Loved it and looking forward to 2nd season about to drop

House of Cards- We'll see what happens post-Spacey

The Americans Like it better than I thought I would

Homeland

Better Call Saul
Breaking Bad is just barely better than BCS
Bosch


Fargo


Narcos

Goliath
(Billy Bob Thorton)

On my list to binge when I get Netflix again:

Stranger Things

There are tons of Alaska based reality tv shows, and most of them don't accurately reflect Alaskan life. Many are a complete joke, and I can tell you hardly anybody here watches them-except for one. If you are going to watch an Alaska show, the one to watch is The Last Alaskans. It is very captivating if you are into shows about wilderness and life.

Per wiki:

The series is currently on an extended hiatus and FX announced in January 2018 that a fourth season is in development and is planned for a 2019 release.[

Excited that both Archer and Legion (an X-Men -adjacent show, from the showrunner of "Fargo") are coming back soon.

The Good Place, Fresh off the Boat, and Superstore are all comedies worth your time.

Game of Thrones and Stranger Things aren't coming back for a good while, but I'll certainly watch (and re-watch) them when they do.


I watch a lot of TV, so there's a fair number of things sitting on my TiVo that I need to catch up with (like Bob's Burgers), gradually sit through out of a sense of obligation (X-Files), or just cut bait on (looking at you, Blindspot).

For the Netflix crowd I highly recommend “Shot in the Dark”, it is the documentary TV series and is basically the real-life version of the movie Nightcrawler.

Black Mirror is great...if you can get through s1 ep1.

Peaky Blinders on netflix is fantastic.

A lot of the netflix/hulu/amazon original content is really good. Depe ds in your tastes.

I got through 4 seasons of GoT and called it quits.

Just finished seven seconds on Netflix, enjoyed it.

Really enjoy Homeland and Shameless on Showtime, wait for the season to end and buy showtime for a month and binge. Tried to find a reason to keep showtime after shameless ended and couldn't.

next ones on my list is collateral and dark on netflix I think.
