    I started The Sopranos a few weeks ago. I'd seen the first season a few years ago, but I never finished it.

    Starting on season 3 now. I really admire how understated it can be. Characters have major realizations and convey that with a subtle expression instead of an explicit conversation. Refreshing seeing a mafia story that is unmistakably critical of the lifestyle. Love how the nuclear family unit is the center of attention and contrasted against the extended "family" of the mob.

    Bout done with Big Mouth season 1. Hilarious show.
    I loved that show. Watched it in about 3 days. The only thing that bugged me was how long some of the conversations lasted. They lost me at times. I believe one of the episodes has a scene that was all recorded in one take, lasting 17 minutes or so. That’s nuts.

    Got done with season three of Daredevil hopefully there will be a fourth season.

    I'm a little bit into Haunting of Hill House I need to watch the rest of.

    Other than that it's currently the new seasons of Flash, Arrow, TWD, Legends of Tomorrow and Supernatural.

    Final episode of American Horror Story this week so there's another season done.

    Dated a chick who was into Blacklist. Hated the show, but I like James Spader a lot.

    He’s the ONLY reason I watch the show. He plays Red to perfection. Can’t help but think they really could have came up with a better plot or something for his character because I really couldn’t care less about the rest of the cast lol.

    recently finished The Deuce (great) and The Haunting of Hill House (good). Currently watching Bojack Horseman (just finished season 4), Better Call Saul (about halfway through season 4), and just watched the first episode of Peaky Blinders

    Oh yeah, I'm also watching Ash vs The Evil Dead. Only on episode 2. It's pretty entertaining. Crazy how much this franchise has changed tonally.

    I’m rewatching Curb. Again.

    I work from home so I just let it play while I do my work. Such a perfect show to just have on the tv playing continuously. Great for background noise and periodic laughs too.

    Edit: I just finished season 3 of daredevil. It was fantastic. Such a shame Netflix cancelled Luke cage. Loved that show so much. I hope they don’t cancel punisher. I’ll be very disappointed if they cancel that show. It was my favorite marvel show.

    Bout halfway thru Maniac. Gotta watch season 2 of The Deuce and finish season 4 of Better Call Saul. Heard House on Haunting Hill is good too.

    Been wanting to a rewatch of The Sopranos as well but I dunno if that'll happen any time soon.

    I'm watching The Sopranos as well...haven't started season 3 yet. Mostly lives up to the hype!

    I also watched The Haunting of Hill House, which I thought was fine. Its blend of melodrama and conventional horror yielded mixed results for me. The long take episode is a clear highlight though, effectively mixing the aesthetics of a chamber drama with that of a horror video game. That saccharine finale, on the other hand, didn't leave a strong final impression...

    That scene was insanely good. Really enjoyed the whole thing right up until the last episode, which was a bit of a letdown. Otherwise was a great show.
