    The newest season of Rake was released on Netflix recently. I had intended to binge watch it, but life had other plans. I've only seen the first 2 episodes

        Yes, we are. It's okay for a summer show.

          I stick with my initial assessment of a soap opera. But I am watching it. (Just not recording it.)
          Smithsonian channel lists one thing, broadcasts another.
          I'm iffy about Dark Matter. Orphan Black is worth the rewatch.

        I was ready to give up on Dark Matter, but I did like the latest episode. I've never watched Orphan Black.

          Finally caught up on Shadow Hunters..been binge watching it the last couple weeks after finding it. Not a great show but not bad for being based on a young adult novel
          They will need music to uplift
          It'll be a godsend it'll be a gift
          And hope and glory to coincide
          They'll need the strength and warmth and comfort
          That the music will provide

            Preacher, Victoria, Broadchurch, Dr. Who, When Time Goes By, Turn, Better Call Saul, Lucifer, Americans, Sherlock, Big Bang Theory, Orphan Black and an awful lot of World War II on AHC because my husband enjoys it. Oh, and Saving Hope, but I can't figure out why I like it. That looks like a lot, but what's on depends on the season.

              Shooter (on USA, I think) with Ryan Phillipe and Omar Epps.

              And, Game of Thrones.
              WHAT IF THERE WERE NO HYPOTHETICAL QUESTIONS?

                Now:

                Game of Thrones: I'm a huge fan! Didn't start watching until season 3, but now own all the Blu-ray's, read all the books, & wait with baited breath for the season finale this Sunday

                Ray Donovan: loved the earlier seasons, but this season is strange so far with big story-telling style changes; haven't made a decision yet on whether I like it or not


                Looking forward to this fall:

                Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, & Supergirl: record them on DVR & watch when I have time; mindless fun

                Lucifer: a ridiculous concept (the Devil leaves Hell for LA to solve crimes), but surprisingly good due to great writing & acting; FYI based on a graphic novel

                Outlander: historical romance novels turned into a show, yet some pretty dark stuff & historical events; great acting, writing, & cinematography; read all the books & can't wait for more


                Looking forward to:

                The Defenders (once I have free time): loved Daredevil & Jessica Jones; Luke Cage is good, but not as good comparatively; Iron Fist was meh for me; hopefully the team up is worth it

                The Crown: I've been fascinated by royalty all my life & loved the 1st season "behind the public facade" sort of storytelling

                House of Cards: the last season wasn't as great as earlier ones, but still thoroughly enjoyable; Kevin Spacey & Robin Wright are amazing!

                Sherlock: own all on Blu-ray; loved the old Basil Rathbone & Jeremy Brett Sherlock's, but Benedict Cumberbatch with Martin Freeman blow me away; I patiently wait for more

                The Americans: If you haven't watched this you should!!! Russian spies living in the US under cover in the 80's. Last season was more character based than action; next is the last I think


                What I just finished:

                Orphan Black: clones live amongst us; series just ended; great early seasons, then went in odd directions & IMHO got a bit weighted down by it's own mythology; still enjoyable & I'll miss it

                Downton Abbey: Over the summer I re-watched the series with Hubby; he didn't care when it was on, but finally talked him into it due to the pre & post WWI period, then he loved it

                  Hubby loved Downton also...

                I've really got to watch Shadow Hunters. Right now, I'm watching The Mist. It's kind of variable. I have been spoiled about who really did a certain dirty deed, and that fact is making it hard for me to watch until that reveal.

                  Shadow Hunters is good and their weapons look much more realistic in the 2nd season than they did at first. Dreigha and I just started watching Orphan Black and have made it to the 2nd season. A friend has been bugging me to watch it for years. Also started watching Midnight Texas which is interesting

                    I watched the first episode of The Orville yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. Yes it's a spoof of the Original Star Trek, but I think it's going to work as a show. (Not knitting TV- some of the jokes are visual.)

                      Finished Orphan Black a while ago and tried to start watching it again with my daughter but they've taken it off of On Demand. I'll be buying it when it comes out on DVD. I just started watching Outlander but am only on the second episode.

                        Saw SEAL Team and Wisdom of the Crowd. Both are OK. Will keep watching for awhile.

                        That Wisdom of the Crowd is a very scary concept--using social media to stalk/capture persons of interest in crimes. I think a case of mistaken identity already happened after the Charlottesville incident with some innocent man being pegged for one of the neo-nazi jerks and the wrong man's photo plastered all over Facebook or something. Oops. Sorry, fella.

                            I have The Punisher series, ready to watch. When I have time. That might be a while.

                              Why are people raving about the season premiere of Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? I'm all feh, feh, meh. Time travel, dystopian future, outer space? I've seldom seen time travel done well.

                                I've been following "The Curse of Oak Island" intently. They made some cool finds last season and should continue to this season. It is a great mystery that may actually get solved. My guess is that rumors of a solution will leak out and we'll hear something before seeing it for the first time on the show and we haven't heard that so it is unlikely this season. But still, there has been more coming out recently and enough to keep me fascinated.

                                  Just finished this for the first time - with spouse in tow in similar circumstances. Started out much stronger than it finished but overall worth watching. Speculated on Mr Bates middle name being Job.

                                  Got dragged into Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency more or less unwillingly, but am now hooked - it's just soooo weird, and the cast is quite good.

                                  Officially gave up on NCIS last Tuesday. I never saw anything jump the proverbial shark that obviously before. Moving on to the recommended Lethal Weapon this week, see how that goes.
