It's bad in the sense that it's all style over substance. Lots of shots of the cast looking cool and walking to contemporary music.

It's frustrating because the Shelbys are bad people, but the show doesn't seem comfortable admitting that so every other character on the show is a mustache-twirling caricature of a villain. And every season seems to go: Tommy is going to lose everything! No wait he had a secret plan all along so he wins and in fact has gained a higher station in life.

At this rate this season will end with him becoming prime minister, and next season he will be crowned king of england

Watching 6 Underground right now and itís not fun

What is Ready or Not on? Iíve been wanting to watch that.

Six underground was super boring for a movie that is 75% action scenes. I didnít care about any of the characters.

I just watched the first season of Mr Robot on prime and it was great, but I have heard the rest isnít worth watching. Should I keep going?

I thought the actress who played Yennifer was fine, but I do think it's weird that they chose an actress who has only been in 8 episodes of TV to be a lead in a series opposite Henry Cavill. I'm guessing they spent 90% of the budget on Cavill.

Terriers is one of those shows like Party Down or (sue me) Firefly which was too good for this awful world and so it died long before its time. But what little we got is beautiful and precious. Anyone into neo-noir owes it to themselves to check out Terriers. It's kind of on the same wavelength as Veronica Mars but instead of neo-noir mixed with high school drama set in not-San Diego, it's neo-noir straight set in actual San Diego.

Oh hey this reminds me that Lodge 49 is streaming on Hulu. Itís probably my favorite show of the last decade and was cancelled after its second season

I feel like Iím the only person who didnít like Justified. I thought season two was great but after that it just turned into the standard ďcop breaks laws but everyone looks the other way because he gets results!Ē cliche of a show. I liked how Raylan only cared about Marshall business at first but that stance goes out the window pretty quick.

I think Westworld season 2 had some good individual episodes, like the one with Delos and especially Kiksuya, but it tried to cram too many ideas in at once and really tried to be too cute with its timelines. I don't think it's a great show, but it is entertaining for a big-budget action scifi.

I know this isn't normally the thread for recommending new shows that aren't on Netflix or Prime, but I feel really strongly about how amazing Dispatches From Elsewhere is. Someone said it's like a better, sadder Maniac and that's on point. It's also very loosely based on real events (read up on them, it's wild stuff).

Should be on AMC's website and if you have Comcast/Xfinity it's definitely free On Demand.

Seriously, it's loving incredible. And heartbreaking. And weird. And good.

Dispatches from Elsewhere just makes me sad that Lodge 49 was cancelled. Dispatches is good, but Lodge 49 had the same vibe but with better world building and a sense of optimism that I miss. Dispatches from Elsewhere's central mystery just isn't that interesting to me either, like if Clara is real and this isn't a game, then what is the big deal about finding her? What does finding her accomplish?

What are some good shows that have possibly gotten less attention than they should because they were on some obscure network or streaming service?

Like Audience. Have you ever heard of Audience? I haven't, but apparently it's shutting down.

Other Space was a show that got one season on Yahoo's streaming service and I thought it was great. It was created by Paul Feig and had a cast full of great improvisors, and Joel Hodgson and Trace Beaulieu from MST3K. I don't know if it's available anywhere but there are only 8 episodes so it's worth the time.

This is a difficult ask but what would people say are the next best Netflix drama series after Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul? Foreign or domestic.
I was rolling my eyes and shutting poo poo off 5 minutes into Ozark/House of Cards, and the same by the end of episode 2 of Halt and Catch Fire.

Might be the obvious choice but Mad Men, if you haven't watched it. It's not a crime drama but it's great and on Netflix. Other than that I think the Sopranos is on Prime and it's in a very similar vein.

Anyone have good recs for thrillers like Assault on Precinct 13 or Green Room? Like, tense standoff horror but not horror movies. Not necessarily stuff like Die Hard or Dredd since they are more action movies, even if they are great.

Blue Ruin is by the same director as Green Room and itís very much in the same vein. Blood Simple is by the Coen Brothers and is a great thriller.

The Thing is a horror movie but is also incredibly tense.

The Conversation is worth watching if you like paranoia style thrillers

I know I'm in the minority on this but I think Parks and Rec was much better when Mark Brendanawicz was a character on the show. After he left the writers decided that everyone needed to be wacky and the whole show turned into a cartoon. Without Mark as a regular person, the show just spins up into a series of character quirks with nothing to measure it against.
