I'm catching up on Stranger Things before season 2 starts, I really like it.

East Bound and Down was really cracking me up. And then I got to season two... fail.

Designated Survivor recently started up again! LOVE this show. I hate when I'm caught up though, that way I can't binge watch. :(

Here's a handful from various categories. This isn't all-inclusive.

Some of my favorites no longer on the air:

- Sopranos
- Scrubs
- Breaking Bad
- West Wing
- Mad Men
- Arrested Development
- Parks and Recreation

Shows I love but really, really sucked in their last couple of years:

- The Office
- Lost
- The Walking Dead (I know it's still on, but it's just become so, so awful)

Perennial favorites:

- American Dad
- South Park

Newish shows I'm really into:

- The Good Place
- Rick and Morty
- Better Call Saul
- Stranger Things
- Silicon Valley (though the last season was a dip in quality)

Newish shows I enjoyed but are a bit overrated IMO:
- Westworld
- Ozark

I'm currently working my way through Seinfeld on Hulu. I've seen an episode here or there in the past but never watched the show in full. When I'm done with that, I'm probably moving onto Handmaid's Tale, after season 2 of Stranger Things.

YES!! I never watched it when it was on the air, but I finally watched it a couple of years ago and thought it was brilliant.

Lost is my all-time favorite show and probably always will be. I just love the concept, characters, and intrigue of it. I love that even years later watching it for probably the 8th time I still notice new things and gather new insight into it. It's one of the few (if not only) [fictional] shows that I've watched more or less start to finish when it aired live on TV. Having to wait a week between episodes and months between seasons (and even the minutes between commercial breaks) added an additional facet of curiosity and mystique that we just don't have in this era with entire Netflix series you can binge watch in a couple days.

I know a lot of people didn't like the 6th and last season (or even 4 or 5) but I still really appreciate them for the canon that is Lost. I still sometimes wonder about what inspired season 6, but even in seasons 1 and 2 there are hints to things that happen in season 6, which suggests that that was always how it was supposed to end, not a hastily put-together season because of declining popularity (even though there was declining popularity). I'd still love to have a long conversation with J.J. Abrams about it.

I love Lost so much, I named my Siamese cats Jin and Sun. We named my parents' cats Claire and Charlie, but Charlie died. :cry:


I also got into Stranger Things recently and loved it. Can't wait for season 2. :br

This might be controversial, but I really got into 13 Reasons Why and binge-watched it in like 2 days. I'm interested to see what they're going to do with season 2.

I also still faithfully watch American Horror Story even though these later seasons seem to be grasping for straws and overall just not as good. AHS Cult so far has been very lame and not so compelling even compared to some of their others. In general, I find that AHS starts out good and then declines (such as Hotel and Coven). Roanoke was just chaotic and shocking and flipped things mid-season. Freakshow started good, got worse, then got better at the end. I hope Cult gets better because I'm really only watching it out of habit right now.

Mostly, I watch reality/competition shows. I'm BIG into the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, and I love Survivor as well, and sometimes watch Dancing With the Stars and America's Got Talent. Just keeping up with those shows keeps me busy most of the year.

^ If you're into dance shows, then really try to see "So You Think You Can Dance" when a new season starts up. The power and elegance of pretty much all the young dancers that come into the competition, is astounding. And when it finalizes into the top ten.... well, if this past season just ended, was any indication, the talent and artistry of these kids is going to be F-ING AWESOME!!! It's easily one of the most (if not The Most) awe-inspiring, reality shows out there. :smile:

This is the recent group. And Lex, far right, won it. But they were all spectacular!

^I think it was a different dance competition show I watched recently that had some really amazing (and famous) dancers on it too. The Jabbawockeez were on it and I saw them at Universal during HHN. I didn't keep up with the show so I don't know who actually won.
All those shows make me want to learn how to dance. :br
