Goliath on Amazon Prime Video - a really good legal drama starring Billy Bob Thornton.

Seal Team (CBS) vs The Brave (NBC). I did like the latter better because of the irritating drama at the end of the former. Really? Taking chance with a suicide bomber? Maybe if you're FPJ.

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan will also be a tv series starring John Krasinsky

and I didn't know X-Files will have another season. I thought the last was a one-off.

I watch Killjoys -- not bad, some lighthearted scifi fare about space bounty hunters. Lead actress is kickass and kinda hot, with an accent that draws you in.

LOL, I posted this around 3 years ago.; still watch Killjoys (which is now on its 4th season), and English actress Hannah John-Kamen has appeared in movies since then, recently on Ready Player One and this July on Ant-Man and the Wasp, as the main antagonist, The Ghost

"Call my agent" on Netflix is a comedy about a group of talent agents in france. very funny not only because o f the script but also because of the guest stars like isabelle ajdani and juliette binoche playing exaggerated versions of themselves.

Still waiting for the next season for my old standbys to drop - Billions, Black Mirror, Succession, The Crown

Aside from these, some that I've enjoyed the most over the past year -
The Defiant Ones - Dre/Jimmy Iovine 4-part documentary
Money Heist / Las Casas de Papel - I think this has it's own topic here
Genius - two seasons out already (Einstein and Picasso)

For newer shows that I'm giving a shot, these have just been released -
All American - it's no Friday Night Lights, but decent escape, although often comes across as too cliche
Dogs - Netflix 6-episode documentary profiling various dog/human relationships
Homecoming - Based on the Gimlet podcast (which was brilliant). I'm a bit torn (I feel like I liked the podcast better), although this has gotten good reviews
The Little Drummer Girl - For John Le Carre fans. My verdict's not out yet, starting out a bit too slow, although that's typically Le Carre anyway

Latest season of House of Cards just came out (although I dropped out a season ago) with what looks like poor reviews.
Medici Season 2 also just out, - I haven't seen it, but I thought Season 1 was ok

There's also the Lebron James produced Shut Up and Dribble about political activism in sports (haven't seen yet)

For fans of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (probably some of the smarter tv out there, albeit pretty liberal), there's Patriot Act with Hassan Minhaj. pretty similar, but more stand up style, and he comes across a bit too hyper (probably nervous since it's his first solo show)

Russian Doll on Netflix. Was intrigued by the premise of it. I never watched Groundhog Day so the closest movie I can compare it to is Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow.

It's about a woman who kept dying and reliving her 36th birthday. It's a dramady (drama/comedy). It's only 8 episodes and, as usual with Netflix series, it kinda dragged sa middle part of the episodes. But it caught on and was quite enjoyable.
SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!

The Capture - When a British soldier is charged with a crime, the tenacious young detective handling his case begins to uncover a multi-layered conspiracy.

Another miniseries from BBC. I tend to like the format, no cliffhangers in between seasons, and you usually get everything tied up. I actually liked this one more than The Bodyguard

The ABC Murders - John Malkovich stars as an older but wiser Hercule Poirot as he investigates the source of a series of sinister letters written by a mysterious criminal in the early 1930s in England. Although he is no longer revered, when murders begin occurring in relation to the letters, Poirot takes the case into his own hands and deploys his detective skills in order to find the killer before they strike again. Malkovich stars alongside Rupert Grint and Andrew Buchan in this three-part crime-drama series.

Another miniseries from the BBC. Fairly predictable, but it's John Malkovich and it's only 3 episodes, so why not

Godfather of Harlem - In the early 1960s, infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson returns from 10 years in prison to find the neighbourhood he once ruled in shambles; with the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must take on the Genovese crime family to regain control.

Saw the first two episodes, a bit promising, but I'm not entirely sure I'll stick with it. Then again, I've always had a soft spot for Forest Whitaker

Modern Love - A co-production of Amazon Studios and the New York Times, this anthology series explores love in all of its complicated and beautiful forms, as well as its effects on the human connection. Each episode brings to life a different story that has been inspired by the newspaper's popular Modern Love column. The romantic comedy series features a star-studded cast that includes such notable actors as Jane Alexander, Emmy winner Tina Fey, Andy Garcia, Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel and John Slattery.

Easy, half an hour anthologies, with a well known cast. Not a show to binge, but have to let each episode sink in. Liked the first two, thought Anne Hathaway's was too heavy. Tina Fey's was forgettable/unlikeable/unrelatable. Saving the remaining ones for later.

Looking For Alaska - Miles "Pudge" Halter wants to gain a deeper perspective on life, so he enrolls in boarding school. While he's there, he gains a group of loyal friends and falls in love with Alaska Young. When an unexpected tragedy strikes, the close-knit group of friends try to make sense of what they have been through. The limited series is based on the John Green novel of the same name, and it was created by Josh Schwartz, whose teen-TV pedigree includes Fox drama series "The O.C." and CW's "Gossip Girl."

I've actually never watched anything adapted from a John Green novel, but vaguely recognize him as a teen melodrama expert. TV folks at reddit seemed to rave about this one so i figured will give it a shot. I can't believe I finished it (probably shouldn't have). It's not horrible, but I guess I'm just the wrong target audience. Fairly predictable at times too, and the characters were so not relatable.
