    Yeah I started wailing at that part myself. Thankfully I was home alone on my sofa and not in a movie theatre with a bunch of HEARTLESS AUSTRALIANS >:|

    Checked out the first episode of Crazy Ex Girlfriend... I think I will like this show reminds me of 30 Rock a bit.

    Everyone do yourselves a favour and watch Stranger Things (netflix).

    Take some Spielberg adventure, King creeps and Carpenter sounds, blend all of that into one show, set it in a lovingly recreated 80s, and you've got yourselves this piece of magic, perfect for summer watching.

    Yes, that's on my to-do list after I binge-watch Fringe.

    Maaan, Fringe had such promise. And it squandered it all!

    Aw no, really? But it's getting so interesting as I near the end of Season 1!

    So I finished latest season of Orange is the New Black. Definitely one of the best seasons. I heard it made others cry - I would probably too if I wasn't genetically incapable of producing tears. Polish, and all that...

    To be fair, it remains fairly cohesive until the last season, and despite threatening to be weighed down by its own bullshit, it stays afloat for a good long while. It never goes full Lost. But I would stop at the end of season 4 and pretend that's it if I were you. The last season was just batshit, unrelated nonsense.

    Season 1 of Gotham watched. GOD DAMN this show is excellent. Barely a dull moment in any of the episodes at all. Excellent acting, lots of big twists.

    I love it.

    Currently 8 episodes into the second season and that's equally good, though a bit more super hero-ish in feel. In that respect I'm only referring to the setting up of the bad guys which is the main premise of that season (as it's called "rise of the villains" after all).

    Show makes for an excellent binge watch.

    Top 4 characters:
    1. Penguin
    2. Alfred
    3. James Gordon
    4. Nygma / Riddler

    I was over the moon when I saw there was a new season and I watched episode 1. Somehow I didn't feel as gripped as before but your comment encourages me to keep with it, maybe start again and concentrate. Perhaps I'm just jaded as I don't feel quite so attached to Suits either, after 2 episodes of the latest season, but I think maybe I thought it had come to the end of its story and I can't quite see where it's going at the moment.

    But I did enjoy Game of Thrones much more than I thought I would although I forgot I hadn't seen Season 5 so there's been a massive catch up with that.

    People think Gotham is legitimately good? It's a very entertaining mess, but it's a mess in pretty much every imaginable way and is a textbook example of how not to write a show.

    Watched the first half of Stranger Things last night. Good stuff

    I've binged Stranger Things too. Down to the last episide to go. It's '80s childhood crystallized. For someone that lived it, what's not to love?

    I feel it always takes a few episodes to get each season rolling. Hope you change your view as you go, it hits some hard points in second half.

    Your welcome to that opinion. For me I absolutely love it.

    You're quite right, once I remembered the various characters I was completely involved again. I think the influx of new inmates distracted me a bit.

    Yea that was a little confusing and I didnt fully understand/relate to all of them. I think the season could have done without them tbh.

    I also started on STranger Things on Netflix since people were raving about it, but after 3 epsiodes not sure how I feel about it. Feels a little too random-paranormal for me, though it has interesting ideas (like the kids and their whole dnd allegory).

    Also super excited to start on Season 3 of Bojack the Horseman but finishing rewatching season 2 with a friend to catch up first.

    Oh, it gets better. Season 2 was great, and season 3 was spectacular. I won't say it becomes terrible after that, but it does go a little flat, never quite managing to hit its high notes quite as consistently.

    And I binge watched Stranger Things in two days. I loved it! Reminded me of my childhood in the 80's, back when all my friends disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It hit me right in the feels!

    Now I'm starting Mr. Robot. Local hacker joins Anonymous-like group to bring down corporations, The Matrix meets Fight Club with a little X-Files thrown in.

    I don't think the oligarchy angle plays well, just in the sense that having only a few mastermen running the whole show implies that if you just take them out, you can save the world. It could work for something like X-Files because the show they're running was an alien invasion. But running the global economy... Makes for a better crackpot lawn sign than a plot device. But I'll give it latitude.

    I like the main character anyway. He's an endearing kind of paranoid anarchist. And I like the hacking-culture angle.

    Mr. Robot is an interesting show. I don't really have much of an angle on the hacking, but it seems to be technically accurate for the most part. The character and narrative is... how do I put it? Intriguing but flawed. The depiction of corpocracy doesn't ever go beyond extreme parody. The antagonist seems to be a one-note sociopath, and the main character isn't what I'd call relatable. That's on purpose for the most part given they're portraying a subset of hacker culture, but having some redeeming qualities apart from technical skill would have been nice. I'd say I liked the way it started, but towards the end, when I saw where it was going, I was left with some pretty mixed feelings.

    Hmm i should check it out. Reminds me of Silicon Valley but each character's premise is that they're badically assholes heh

    Then a few friends told me this is pretty much how people there are like :|
