Woah, Hugh Laurie is going to be on Veep? Awesome. That show packs so many jokes in per minute.

First I have heard of this. Love that show and great add with him.

Finally binged Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Highly recommend, especially if you liked 30 Rock, same sensibility of irreverent one-off jokes while still carrying a larger narrative.

So many laugh out loud moments, but I won't spoil them just yet.

Netflix Original Series is where you find it. 13 episode first season, already renewed for season two.

Basic story, Ellie Kemper [Erin on The Office] has been kidnapped by a cult leader and kept in a bunker with 3 other women for 15 years, thinking there was an apocalypse outside. The series starts with their rescue, and she decides to move to NY to live life. Lots of fish out of water humor, as well as outdated reference humor. She rooms with a huge black gay man with dreams of broadway somewhere in 'slum class' New York and nannies for an uber rich family.

But the show isn't so much about the premise as the execution.

And as a bonus, were we to wish to move the discussion to DC, the offended class are having a field day because some of the humor actually addresses differences between people, and apparently that's . . . problematic. But we'll leave that for laters.

Caught Deadwood finally. That was one **** of a good series. Although I've seen too much Game of Thrones and kept expecting dudes to die horrible deaths because they recently took more prominent roles in the camp. LOL.

The dialog writing in the series was as good as anything out there. Especially being a period piece it's a great flick.

I really don't like the last 10 years of SNL but just finished binge watching Parks And Rec.

Ron Swanson made that show.

Starlord's stupid assed character was as annoying as anything and made me want to fast forward quite often.

The characters of April and Ron were why I kept watching. I really hope Offerman gets a spinoff...

Audience channel on DTV has been showing NYPD Blue commercial free and in order. I missed it when it first came out. I have been enjoying it and am surprised at how much is still relevant.

Spoiler!

I added Daredevil to the great list. Definitely watch that shit if you like anything comic book. Hell, even if you don't, give it a shot. Well done, IMO.

Also added Orphan Black to the good list. Coudl be great, but has a bit of a time getting out of it's own way, but most definitely worth the watch. Tatiana Maslany does a marvelous job acting the clones, and there is a ton of interesting shit in it.

There is this new show on Netflix Between. I enjoyed the first episode. Its a netflix original series, but they didnt release all the episodes at once. They are doing it 1 per week.

I started watching Jack Taylor. I haven't heard of it talked about here, but it is goddamned good. It has Ian Glen (Jorah Mormot from GOT) as a private investigator.

Definitely recommend it. Netflix has it.

Also started Boardwalk Empire. It looks to be pretty good also.

I've been watching this obscure little show on netflix called "The X-Files" or something like that.

That is to say I'm rewatching all the alien arc episodes in prep for the new mini-season in January. It's amazing how well it still holds up twenty years later.

You know, when it was on, I didn't have whatever channel. I know virtually nothing about the show. Other than Gillian Anderson is otherworldly hot.

I think she's more attractive now than she was then. One oddity about that series (which was her first ever job iirc), was that she went through a pregnancy early on in the series, and they had to work around that. She began to show late in season one, then just ballooned during season two, then slimmed back down by about midway through season three.

As far as the show goes, it's had a lot of influence, including the spread of serialized storytelling. While it was a monster-of-the-week kind of show (based on Kolchak: The Night Stalker in the 70s) it had an arc that ran throughout all 9 season, often with multipart episodes - those are basically all I'm watching now. And I believe it's directly responsible for the growth of interest in the paranormal from the 90s right up to this very day. While I had an interest myself in that kind of stuff prior to 1993 (read a lot of books when I was a kid...), I know it had a huge influence on me, personally.

I've enjoyed several BBC shows including this one. Broadchurch was very well done. Definitely watch An Idiot Abroad.

Luther is another good BBC show. Not sure if it is on Netflix anymore.
