I am watching Channel 4 and AMC's "Humans", I am pleasantly surprised by it.

Oh yeah, everyone says good things about this!
I've started League of Legends for some reason, it's a bit silly and feels like Sliders meets the Justice League, but it's easy to watch while you're busy doing something else ^^

that one keeps popping up on my Netflix screen. Maybe I should give it a chance.

Still have not watched Mr. Robot. That one I want to watch for sure.

Never watched it. Probably would because Ron Moore is attached. But every time I see it I picture Sean Connery from Outland in my head. Dating myself. I know.

Great series. Season 1, anyway; we've yet to get season 2 in Seffrica, but coming soon.

It sounds kind of romancey, so I was thinking it would be something that my wife and I could watch together. Plus, Scotland!

A little bit; "romancey" that is. But lots of Seffrican men liked it, probably for the nudity and blood if I know them.

As a woman I did enjoy it, but mostly for, as you say, "Scotland". :D

I'm watching The Night Manager miniseries. Bloody brilliant.

Looks pretty good.
In this interview, TH mentions the novel has been adapted entirely but there might be more
(I hate having to wait for the next episode, I usually watch a whole season in one go if I can)

Also, The Shannara Chronicles, that was unexpected (only watched the 1st episode and I kinda liked it, the book is a bit distant in my memory but I still remember it fondly)

Has anyone seen the trailer/teaser for HBO's Westworld?
It looks quite promising.

Mr. Robot - that's it for this summer, I think.

I need to catch up with it again. I stopped watching afyter 5 or 6 episodes.

If you haven't watched Westworld yet, you really should. I think it's awesome. And it has Evan Rachel Wood in every episode.

That's one my wife will watch with me, and we have not found the time yet. Looking forward to season 2.

Anyone watch the latest season of GoT? I watched the first episode and got really bored.

Westworld
Shameless
The 100
Sense8
Supergirl
Lucifer
Vikings
The Royals


Omph, the last season of Game of Thrones was pretty uneven, but, there are several good episodes that are worth watching, it's obvious the show runners are missing chunks of the story due to the novels still unpublished.

I feel like GoT has been ruined by the showrunners taking it in directions it never should have gone, and then just turning it into pretty much pure bloodsport. It exists as a vessel for "who's gonna die next, and how terribly".

Also, I don't care how good the chicken soup is in Game of Thrones, it can't cure sepsis.
