    Netflix. Santa Clarita Diet. It's campy and dumb but still fun. Timothy Olyphant's overacting is hard to swallow the first few episodes. But it gets a lot better.

    Also, Altered Carbon. You really need to pay attention to it, but it's ufcking good.

    Amazon. The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. Hilarious. 10/10. Can't wait for season 2.

    Networks
    FXX: Legion. Marvel series. Professor Xs illegitimate son. Season 1 was fantastic. Season 2 was just announced.

    CBS: Still watching Criminal Minds. Also started SWAT. Procedural cop drama. Very watchable. Also SEAL Team.

    Sadly, I've cut the cord so hard that really nothing on the networks, including Hulu/Netflix, appeal to me. It's mostly random YouTubers for me now. Or I'm in the room while Mrs. watches something.

    Only content I pay for is Netflix. "The Netherlands" manages to provide most everything else. I did add in an antenna to my Plex Server to grab current stuff for Mrs. Jury's still out on how well that works.

    Look up Ducky TV.
    I have a dedicated machine behind a VPN that does everything and loads new content into Plex automatically.

    I just finished grimm s6. Man that show was fun, and I'm actually glad it ended. The first couple seasons were great but you could tell they were running out of ideas by the end.

    PReviously did Altered Carbon and the 100. I believe 100 has a season not yet on the flix.

    Olyphant was so damn good in Justified though. I loved that series. Walton Scoggins was also awesome.

    Oh, his over acting is deliberate. I know he's good.

    I just finished off within the past few weeks:
    Netflix
    -Punisher (series)
    -Luke Cage
    -Jessica Jones
    -Daredevil 1&2
    -Marvel Defenders (and yes, in that order; no, I did not list Iron Fist)
    -Better Call Saul (had already been watching, but now I'm mostly caught up)
    -Parks and Recreation (never had the opportunity to finish)
    -Altered Carbon

    Amazon
    -Grand Tour (duh)

    HBO
    -Westworld (3 episodes in, and super lost)

    I had started Man in the High Castle, but it was waaay too slow. I suffered through Breaking Bad season 1 awhile back, and that ended up being one of the best shows on TV. I hoped this show would be that, but I can't get back into it. Same goes for Boardwalk Empire.

    First season of Boardwalk Empire was ufcking brilliant. When they killed that kid, it ruined the series.

    I absolutely loved Westworld. One if the better HBO shows in recent memory.

    You need to rectify this. Olyphant and Goggins are spectacularly good in Justified.

    I can't say enough good about Altered Carbon...this is truly one of the better sci-fi series to debut in the last decade.

    Justified was damn damn good. I've decided I like Walton Scoggins in everything. He was the stand out in Hateful 8 as far as I am concerned.

    Lately, I've been watching everything that the Mighty Car Mods guys put out on Youtube, including Skid Factory and Unicorn Circuit in addition to the regular MCM episodes. I watch Roadkill and Dirt Every Day on Youtube as well, including all the Extras, and Finnegan's Garage.
    Then there's a guy on Youtube you have to watch. His channel is AVE, and he is a smart cookie, as well as damn funny. I learn a ton of stuff from good ol Uncle BF.

    Oh, and I also give Backyard Scientist and Hoonigan a look when they post new stuff (also on Youtube).

    The wife and I are currently rewatching the original Swedish production of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy on Netflix. If you can pay attention to a film with subtitles, it's a fantastically good drama.

    Archer is always worth a rewatch, as are Top Gear and the Grand Tour.

    The Americans by FX is on Amazon Prime. I dig the Reagan era Cold War intrigue. Great show, great writing and acting, and super awesome to see that someone somewhere has kept up all these 70's and 80's American cars, tech, and fashion for use in a TV/film production.

    And lastly, I need to recommend The Man in the High Castle on Amazon Prime. One of my favorite shows ever.
