    Is unfortunate that the show is not getting more viewers while crappy shows like The Walking Dead are still getting more attention.

    The only thing I did not like about the season finale was
    when Irving was butchering Agent Santiago, it clearly looked like a dummy, they should have made it more believable by adding more mass to it

    A new series will start next month called The Alienist
    Is a show from the 1800's about crime investigation. Something different from the plethora of crime shows that rely too much on technology and exaggeration



    The Alienist - TNT

    I'm not touching that. No way in hell can that actually be good.

    I am hopeful since it will not be produced by unknown people.
    some of the people were part of the original movie or have worked in popular shows like The Man In The High Castle, The Wire and Sons of Anarchy.

    I binged watched the new seasons of Peaky Blinders and Travelers over the weekend.
    Adrien Brody did a great job playing an Italian Mafia gangster in the new season of Peaky Blinders.
    Peaky Blinders is an underrated show, it should get more limelight

    Good season of Travelers, just wished season didn't end in a cliffhanger and Netflix hasn't said it would renew the show :/

    Noticed the second season of Ash Vs. Evil Dead is on Netflix
    currently starting 5th episode of the 10th episode season.

    The new season is gory like the first one but less funny, still good.

    I've watched 2 out of 10 episodes of Altered Carbon and I'm conflicted about it.

    Good things about it include overall visuals and art direction. The intro sequence is quite
    nice as well - then again everything looks like True Detective (season one) and American
    Gods these days. There are various foreign languages in AC, and from what I can tell, they
    are actually well done with minimal accents. Fighting scenes look pretty solid, too. I think
    I've seen hints of something that's basically Deus Ex's Social Enhancer augmentation, that
    lets you read people's moods and anticipate their behaviors.

    But there are quite a few things I don't like about it. Some of them you'll probably forget
    by the end of it, but not all of them. In the first few episodes, all the characters talk to each
    other as if it's the first time they meet - talking about habits, commenting on life choices
    and jobs. It's a very odd way of introducing characters to the viewer, because it's unnatural.
    If e.g. someone's been working with someone for years, they don't suddenly mention things
    like that because they already know each other. There are better ways to do this without
    thinking your viewers are stupid and won't pick up on things if you choose a subtler way to
    handle this.

    There's too much nudity. Just because Game Of Thrones is quite good at dealing with it and
    Blade Runner handles it well, too, doesn't mean you have to copy those shows. If you're not
    good at it, it'll feel forced.

    Other small things bother me, too. The characters can't even agree on how to pronounce the
    main guy's name.

    I'm only 2 episodes in, so things may change, but at the moment it doesn't feel like the awesome
    cyperpunk show I expected. Looks like it, mostly, but it's not quite there.

    [Edit]: Episode 3 was much better. I think it's finally getting started.

    :p

    I barely seen episode 1 of AC
    So far the only thing that bothers me from the show is the Spanish speaking detective, she is saying too many bad words

    I also seen the first episode of the second season of Homeland, it's been a while but I still remember most of season 1 and the summary at beginning helped.

    Yeah, they're dropping too many F bombs in English as well. I've watched two more episodes now and it's picking up.
    Episode 3 was good and episode 4 was actually great! I'll stick with it.




    Westworld returns April 22.
