    Series past, present and future (for those of you gifted with the ability to travel in time). What are you watching? Have you seen it before? What makes you love it?

    I just finished the Mindhunter series on Netflix. Riveting to watch with fascinating characters and exceptional writing. Base on the book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker, the series follows two FBI agents who start studying the most violent of killers. Fans of Silence of the Lambs will find the characters recognisable: The intuitive, curious, empathetic rookie and the older, cynical veteran.

    Just wrapped up (last?) season of Halt and Catch Fire. Typical time-jumps seen throughout the series, but they covered a lot of time.

    Think I'm going to save Dirk Gently and watch them all together.

    Looking forward to new Doctor this Christmas.

    Gonna save Mr. Robot too, I think.

    Same here. Watched the 1st episode of Season 2 last night and there's just too much going on, would be better to watch a few of them at the same time I think (I'm going to do the same with Shokugeki no Souma).

    Halt and Catch Fire never really caught my interest, and I got bored and frustrated with the writing on Doctor Who. I love Capaldi but didn't love Doctor Who anymore. Might give the new Doctor a go, though. I dropped Mr Robot about halfway through the series after I figured out what was going on. Plus, there's too much drama and angst - I prefer my shows more lighthearted.

    I just haven't been watching TV at all lately. It's been YouTube and Vimeo videos for me. Though I have watched some Black Mirror, HUM∀NS, and ... well, that's it. I probably could do more watching, but my time management is atrocious for everything but writing, which I can apparently set myself to do within a timeframe and get done with for the day.

    I actually just started to watch the 7 deadly sins and addicted to it now. It's really the characters that got me into it. That, and I like that there is a lot of blood splatter lol.

    I LOVE 7 Deadly Sins. Kick-ass characters and jaw-dropping action moments.

    Does anybody watch Harmonquest? I might give it a go.

    If you aren't watching Dirk Gently, do yourself a favor and binge season one. Season two has just started and it's honestly the most "How many nuts did that squirrel eat to get that nutty" story I've seen on TV, but I love it. Holistic detectives and murders, shadow government organizations, corgis... and this season brings in DnD!

    Kari and I are so damn far behind on so many things it's ridiculous. Roku streaming, getting rid of cable gave us so much to watch we're swamped.

    Meanwhile, Animenetwork has stopped streaming on PC, and it's now HIDIVE. They don't have a Roku app, but, I'm afraid when they do, I'll never watch anything that isn't anime again.

    I'm not saying that like it's a bad thing.

    Me "Sweets, what's up with the art style on this?"
    Kari "Those are real people"
    Me "Oh! that's whats wrong."

    I normally just stick to Netflix so currently finishing up watching Stranger Things 2.

    And on a Walking Dead kick, oddly enough!

    My wife and I are on our annual "The Office" and "Parks and Rec" kick, plus seeing how the new show "Ghosted" is, but my wife fell asleep in the first episode, but it was late, so we will give it another go. Stranger Things is the next thing for us to try.
