It's hilarious and you'll want to burn through it really quick as it kind of plays out like a Judd Apatow movie...

So, I'm watching Luther. Anyone else watched it? I have some things to say.

Also, is it still on? I see they're doing a 2-episode thing this year, but is that a one-off or?

CBS is rebooting MacGyver. Are there any original ideas left?

Tune in to see MacGyver escape dangerous situations by Googling everything.

They do that and yet the Coach reboot gets the axe?

Has anyone consulted Patty and Selma about this?

It's so funny to check out new network dramas. After watching so many cable/Netflix dramas, so many network shows just feel so ... so .... lame.

Blindspot had a good premise, but even after one episode, it felt kind of rote.

Quantico, however, was a really fun pilot and I hope it keeps up.

So happy TeenNick is doing its "Classic Nickelodeon" lineup. "You Can't Do That on Television" is on now and man...it's so weird to see this show again.

It's fun, though . Yay for reliving one's childhood!

Has anyone seen Burning Love? Ben Stiller's Bachelor pisstake? Holy fucking shit it's funny. Ken Marino is so underrated.

Last year's #1 show on critics' top 10 lists, Fargo, returns very soon. Season 2 is already the highest rated television release of 2015 with a 95/100 on Metacritic.

Guess we now know who really is the true detective.

So, anyone else catch Fargo this week? Great season premiere and continues to keep a Coens vibe, this time filtered through the 70s.

Lots of characters and story threads, but so much better than True Detective season 2 already. It could nosedive of course, but I see no reason to worry. Interesting to see multiple writers with upcoming credits this season too, looks like Noah Hawley knows how TV actually works.

I watched one episode of True Detective's second season and was so put off by its ponderousness that I never watched another. Didn't pull anything out of that first hour that I enjoyed. It starts from the characters and works its way down from there and, at its core, I didn't care to follow any of those characters. It's an uninformed take, but there are lots of other shows to watch that I found more immediately gripping.

Fargo has once again provided the great characters, strong cast and claustrophobic setting that made the first season so special. I miss Thornton, but there are plenty of other good actors to watch for instead and the storylines are already bringing me in. Can't wait to watch the rest.

it's on my DVR, along with everything else I normally watch during the week. This weekend is pretty much going to be a veg-and-watch-TV weekend.

Looking forward to the season premiere of Jane the Virgin, and the pilot for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend as well.

Is that show based on the Miranda Lambert album? Because that would be awesome.

After two weeks back in Stars Hollow, Rory feels the Bern and leaves to cover a new presidential campaign.

 
I'm really fucking psyched about this

Recently finished season 5 of The Shield on my series rewatch. I don't think I can name a better season of dramatic TV than this. (Disclaimer: haven't yet seen Justified.) Even the final season, which has the finest ending I've ever seen, doesn't match the start to finish intensity of season 5.

The best point of comparison is of course Breaking Bad's Ozymandias. Take that, stretch it over 11 episodes of increasing escalation and desperation, and you have The Shield's fifth season.

It's a shame that there's a dip through the end of season 6 through early season 7, but the final 8 episodes of are absolutely gripping.

Granted it finished 7 years ago, but I never see it mentioned much these days. Any fans around?
