Mr Inbetween is very very good. pity it is only 6 episodes of 30mins


#4663

Finished both 12 monkeys and nikita recently.

both series criminally underated


#4664

Anyone ever copped a show called Mr Mercedes.

Mate of mine recommended it. From a story by Stephen King and a few episodes written by Dennis Lehane.

Starts off with a masked dude running down people in a queue at a job fair. The main cop, played by Brendan Gleeson, has retired and two years later, is being taunted by the killer.

I like American Horror Story. New season started slow but after episode 3 its getting better.


#4666

No but I’ve read the trilogy; first book was great, the other two were just ok.


#4667

Watching series 2 atm. Something about this 2nd season that is off and I can’t for the life of me work out what. Think the first was dark and gritty while this one has lost that aspect maybe.


#4668

Lost interest after the season about the coven of witches and never got back into it. Still on fta?


#4669

I got up to season 4 then forgot about it for two years. Just finished season 5 and really enjoyed it. Increasingly a personal, family drama but an interesting one. Probably lacks a bit of wow factor but it is well made


#4670

I just bought season 5 and 6 on Google Play for $40 or there abouts


#4671

I know it’s not popular here, but Foxtel Now has it on the Pop pack. $15 a month and you can binge it inside that time with a bit of commitment…


#4672

I was just typing that.

I wait until I have a few shows I wanna binge, then get it for a month or two, and then scrap it.


#4673

Finally started season 3 of Mr Robot.

Not sure why its taken me so long as i loved the first two. Hope its good there was little chatter on here or in the wider world over it.


#4674

It has its own thread.

You’re welcome to join the three of us in there.


#4675

Also if you sign up for any Telstra service these days (phone or internet) you usually get given a free foxtel now pack for 12 months.


#4676

Yeah I was in there for season 1 and 2. Maybe I just deliberately didn’t read it when season 3 came out for spoilers. I’ll check it out once I’ve watched it.


#4677

Season 3 is damn good.


#4678

Thats what i want to hear.

Only watched episode 1 so far. Struggled to get into it as it starts right where season 2 ended. I don’t remember all the intricacies, as its been 2 years.


#4679

Interestingly it’s been announced the last few weeks that Season 4 is going to be the end of it. I think it was supposed to last 5 seasons. S4 to drop in 2019.


#4680

Oh, i thought it was 3 and done.

Isn’t the creator doing something else? Yep - Homecomming is coming out in November.


#4681

Oh, I hadn’t heard that. Damn.

Its appalling ratings we’re gonna be an issue at some stage.

Gonna be a fair effort to wrap it all up in one more season though.
