Still loving Preacher but I'm obsessed with Banshee at the minute so haven't started Outcast, just getting onto the third series now and there's only one more after this.

 

Such good TV, and with only 38 episodes total it's not a complete chore to get through!

 

Also recently started a show (only three episodes in) called Roadies with Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall etc, has been pretty fun watching so far about the life of the sound crew behind the scenes. Has a great rock soundtrack (Lindsey Buckingham guest starred in the latest episode, doing a few acoustic numbers) and some great comedy moments. Recommend it

 

Going to give roadies a go, watching a series called 'stranger things' which is a bit x-files meets the goonies - based in the eighties too and has a great feel to it. On season 2 of Rectify now, its pretty heavy at times but absorbing. Marco polo season 2 has started too so i've got a few things to keep me going - watched the Vikings trailer last night - can't wait for September for that one.

Rectify and the Americans are great.

 

Mr robot I enjoyed, particularly the first season. But so far I've been a little disillusioned by the 2nd season. Not sure how much longer they can hold my interest with the whole what's real and what's not aspect of the storytelling.

 

Vice principals is off to a very good start. Danny Mcbride is one of my favourite comedy actors and Walton goggins is one of my favourite actors full stop so it's a bit of a dream team along with the eastbound and down writers.

Yeah that's basically my exact thoughts on Mr Robot.

 

I watched two episodes of The Americans. Really enjoyed it so far. It looks very promising.

I haven't seen the Americans, due to all the other stuff I'm watching on drip feed, I'm holding out on Mr Robot - although I was unsure where they were going to take it after the way the season ended - the whole plot revolved around reality v imagination, so I will give it a go when I've rounded my others off. I haven't started Wayward pines 2nd season yet - anyone watching that?

Yeah I watched wayward pines. Season 2 is fine. Entertaining. But not as good as the first season and dipped in quality at times.

 

The Americans gets better and better and better. And then better again. Its probably the only series I've ever watched that has gotten to four seasons with each one better than the last.

Yes, the starting premise of The Americans - two KGB "sleepers" raising a family in early cold-war America - provides a wealth of possible plot lines and the script-writers certainly take full advantage. It's splendid stuff, well paced, credible and always improving.

I'm loving the Americans, one of those amazing series that slips under the radar - always great soundtrack and styling and occasionally amusing disguises!

Just started watching Stranger Things last night, loving it. Superb casting of the kids, it's like they've frozen characters from the Goonies, Flight of the Navigator etc in time and brought themt back to life! Great bit of nostalgia, as a kid of the 80's, it's fantastic to watch
