New season of Daredevil is about as good as it was in season 1. Prison fight scene was fantastic!
I used to be eVoL but I got better.

Does it matter if I didn't watch The Punisher and the other spin-offs? He was great in Daredevil 2 but found the series very boring, never got past episode 4. Also bailed on Luke Cage for same reason.

I think it carries on from something that happens at the end of the Defenders but I never watched any of them and it’s not hard to get your bearings.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has become my latest obsession. Like a lot of US comedy shows it gets funnier the more you watch and get into the characters. For all the high-jinks going on, the deadpan captain is probably the best part.

Yeah, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has largely been fantastic. I felt it took a bit of a dip in season four (where it occasionally felt like people, particularly Holt, were acting quite out of character if it suited the plot), but five was a return to form and actually had me tearing up on occasion.

I'm only a half-dozen or so episodes into season two so can't comment on that, very much enjoying it so far, though.

I only really started watching it after seeing The Good place. I liked the humour in that and hoped B99 was the same. Liking it so far :)

Loved B99 but think I stopped watching about end of season 4.

Narcos season 1 - 3

Fucking brilliant - all of it. Season 3 is just amazing. S3E9 is probably one of the best episodes of TV I have ever watched outside some episodes from Gomorrah. A lot of it was serialized but that fact that it is all based on actual true events is just amazing. The use of TV footage that showed the real people spliced with the actors is just genius.

This is beyond good TV. This is sublime TV.

I cannot wait for this. I hope they've learnt from all the missteps in season 2 and got at least someway back towards the awesomeness of season 1.

Dead To Me
Binged that pretty quick. Liked it a lot. I mean it’s kind of a standard twist filled post Desperate Housewives joint but it’s good at what it does and the acting is great.


Chernobyl
This is great in a “you can’t be serious!?!?” Kind of way. It’s a tragic farce.
