What other TV shows do you watch?

Recommended Posts

Another excellent show I want to blabber about: Lucifer!

I was hooked since the beginning, and after binge watching for three seasons, I'm so glad that Netflix picks it up for another season after it's being cancelled. Geez, who does that?? Cancelling good show. Pfft. Wait, it happens all the time while crappy shows stay around forever.

I think the show idea is interesting, it manages to keep it fresh even after three season procedural + strong main story. (imho, concept that works very well when it's handled well). I like how they introduce the characters and makes the relationship believable enough. I have quite a lot of rare lol moments, and I meant it really cracked me up and made me produce loud laughing noises at unexpected times, sometimes the joke is so smart that it took me awhile to come into realization. And as other shows that captivate me, is the way the character's emotions relate to real life. (Damn human!) I root for the Devil.

The main character, Lucifer. How do I put this; British, annoying, arrogant, clueless about social interactions. Ring a bell? And he is tall. Tall-er!!   Tallllll. I love those tallies, I remember the first few things I noticed about opposite gender are smarts and heights.

Watching him, I have this very weird realization.  I worked with a Brit consultant very closely for one and a half years. We dealt with each other almost everyday and basically bonded on talking crap about other's imbecile, especially the systems and bosses. I even introduced Sherlock to him and he loved it (what are the odds that you have to introduce Sherlock to a Brit?)

He is shorter than the actor, but other that that, he actually looked, sounded almost exactly like Tom Ellis, Lucifer's actor. The way he was talking, accent, body language and all, even the way he crooked his head, the way he was being frustrated with others, the glint and the grin, the resemblance is uncanny.. Holy moly, only now I realize that he is actually quite attractive. Bahahaha.

Anyway, the show, recommended. Maybe not everyone cup of tea, but I think they handle the divine thingy well and subtly. It sounds weird but a lot of good shows that I like have their characters my age, so I don't feel old and stubbornly think that of course that means the world revolves around my taste of show. 😛 (wait.. that might speaks something about why shows that I like always seem to be on the edge of cancellation...) .godammit.

I tried watching it a few times but couldn't get into it. But that describes almost everything these days … I think the only thing I'm watching on a regular basis anymore is … ummmm…...

^ Same.

I am occasionally trying new shows on streaming services, but most of those have very short seasons and aren't really all that captivating.

I’ve been trying out “American Gods”, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman.

So weird...

I never read the novel, but I know a lot of mythology, so seeing their little twists on things has been the most fun so far.

But Gaiman is English, isn't he?  Odd that he wouldn't write about English Gods.  OK, looked him up, and he now lives in the US, so maybe that explains it.

I've read the novel American Gods but haven't watched the series. If I recall he wrote it after moving to the US. It's a good novel but not his best. The idea behind American gods is that they are brought to America by immigrants that worship them and gods that have been created in the mean time in America.

You think???? :P

I know there is no use asking, but anyone watches Making a Murderer 2?

There was a fantastic sleuthing job by the new lawyer.

Gee, I hope everything will be settled the way it should be, it's heartbroken to see Steven Avery's aging parents.

I love Sherlock Holmes and good mystery programmes, however, I don't like true crime stories. Knowing that it's real puts me right off.

Are you referring to documentaries?  What if it's a drama based on a true story?
