    Gonna give a nod to PKD's Electric Dreams, as well.

    I powered through all the episodes in a day and while they are somewhat uneven, all of them are, at the very least, engaging, possessing of excellent production values (cinematography/cast/direction/music); some are way better than others ("The Hood Maker"; "Impossible Planet"; "Crazy Diamond" were my favorite of the bunch, but again, the others were decent).

    I still haven't been able to get motivated to watch Black Mirror after the dismal first episode. RBT is pretty low-budget: I only managed to sit through a single episode and didn't bother to continue due to the poor production values and somewhat cheesiness of the whole thing. Perhaps somebody will re-visit Bradbury's work with a better budget. Given the superbness of his writing, it's a shame that his work hasn't transferred to TV and film better...

    Got to agree. JK Simmons is outstanding. He has great control in the subtlety of playing two different versions of the same person. The cold war inspired espionage plot is compelling. My poor drug addled wife finds it distorting and hard for follow the jumping and blending of characters between two parallel worlds. I try to keep her straight as best as possible so she can understand the twisting of the plot.

    No doubt, it's a dense, dark, convoluted plot-line, with a dark, mildly dystopian atmosphere, but I'm enthralled - the emotional depth of Howard and Emily (x2) is making my jaw drop, and it's a top notch spy thriller to boot.

    it took me a while to warm up to cuba gooding jr as OJ simpson, but american crime story is a great series. season 1 about the OJ simpson trial, season 2 about the versace murder.

    High Maintenance on HBO is a pretty cool vignettey type of thing linked together through a bike-delivery weed dealer. The season 1 episode 3 one from a dog's perspective is really good.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    This is like Wonder Showzen crossed with Who framed Roger Rabbit. Seriously, this is one of the most fucking demented shows. Ever. This show can equally make you fall out of your chair laughing or from squirming uncomfortably. It starts out insane and then each episode just keeps on doubling down on the crazy until by episode 7, you just have to wonder at the sheer audacity of it all.

    Looking for new series to watch

    Not a series, but Hulu posted Korean movie “A Taxi Driver”.
    It’s about 1980’s uprising in one of cities in S. Korea against military government.
    Worth your 2 hours and 17 minutes.

    Just started watching Luther. Overall pretty good, a little disappointing to me that it's not Stringer Bell quality good, but it's a nice little detective series fix for the time being

    I fucking loved it. The acting is top notch.

    Sharp Objects on HBO. Just watched ep. 3, and Amy Adams is blowing my mind. Good writing too.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    This is an entertaining drift into cyberpunk. It gets a bit soap operary at times, but overall is a pretty decent dystopian noir.

    I have not seen any of these, so cannot vouch for them, but they all at least sound interesting.

    I’ve only seen one episode so far, but I thought LetterKenny has potential. But, I like laughing at Canadian stereotypes. Not up to Trailer Park Boys standards, but what is?

    Speaking of soap operary, I've finished the first 4 episodes of Yellowstone and will continue watching, if only for the delightfully man-eating character of Kelly Oreilly's Beth Dutton.
