I prefer better call saul than Breaking bad, i am sure peoples will just hate me for that ahah.

I recommend you all the new Netflix tv show Love, a very modern, funny and touching show. After that my favorite show is the Soprano, it s for me the only true tv show masterpiece ever made.

The Man in the High Castle is pretty good, not great yet but with some great moments.

I rather enjoyed a cartoon show called "Panty and Stockings with Garterbelt" or "Panti ando Sutokkingu wizu Gātāberuto". Very cool, funny, naughty and stylish. Fucking HATED the music, though.

Thoroughly enjoying Parks and Recreation at the moment. Like The Office, but better.

Literally...

If you can get into Zach Galifianakis' brand of self deprecating humor Baskets is really soul crushing. Loving it. Also Man Seeks Woman is in Season 2 and has the same kind of uncomfortable humor.

Netflix is streaming an 8 part miniseries version of Gangs of Wasseypur, an Indian gangster movie.

While the description doesn't sound attractive, that movie is on my personal top 10, it's damn good.

Just finished watching the first of the series called 'Fargo', I properly enjoyed watching it and highly recommend it. The main antagonist is superb and its full of quirky characters and dialog.

Yeah, I was highly skeptical of Fargo because the movie is so good. Was not disappointed at all with either season. Much better than True Detective

Lost interest in Better Call Saul after a few episodes.

Making A Murderer was great, and the latest season of the X-Files was brilliant.

I still think 95% of all series are really shitty though. Don't understand how so many people enjoy such mindless drivel as Game of Thrones etc.

Inside No.9 is a modern Tales of the Unexpected/Twilight Zone and the best thing on TV at the moment. Still some episodes on BBC iPlayer.

Yes!! Wonderfully dark, as you'd expect to from them.

Yes! One of the most subtle and rewarding things I've seen on TV. It can seem kinda slow but then it'll do something jaw-dropping that completely changes the way you see things. One particular episode in season 2 is possibly the best hour of TV I've seen in years.

^The leftovers looks intriguing, nice one.

I recently found a British series on Netflix called 'Detectorists'. Its a light comedy simply about a club of people who like to treasure hunt with their metal detectors, I dunno why I like it so much but I do haha.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgN7z0SD8v8

Looks like a chilled out thing to do on sunny afternoon in the middle of nowhere.

The leftovers is really good yeah. Has that Lost vibe to it. Guess it's because Lindelof works on it. Really looking forward to watching Season 3, but I'll just wait until the entire season is done so I can binge it.

The latest Homeland season was pretty awesome as well.
