Seems like we're missing a dedicated TV thread and with streaming becoming ever more prevalent with the series drop versus the weekly episode feed I think it's hard to see much need for series-specific threads versus a generalised one. Ultimately threads of this nature live or die based on contributions, so please if you want it to thrive, take the time and add posts. If there's a show you like and think others might enjoy, make a post (just keep spoilers hidden).

Anyway. Season 2 of Succession just kicked off this Sunday


A welcome return of the Roy family in all their dysfunctional glory (who as majority owners in a media conglomerate bear some striking similarities to a certain Murdoch Family 🤔 ). If you haven't jumped on board I highly recommend it, if nothing more than to marvel at the unrelenting savagery of the truly rich and powerful to everyone and each other in the blackest of comedies. Written by Jesse Armstrong one of the creators of 'In the thick of it'.

I absolutely adore this show. I think it's one of the best things HBO has released in recent years, in large part because is it just so outright brutal in terms of family dynamics, with all four siblings beholden to their tyrannical father whose presence overshadows their lives vying for attention, recognition and validation. I also like it because albeit there's an air of vulgarity to the sheer wealth of these people, but not in the manner of the wolf of Wallstreet in terms of showiness, versus just the acceptance of certain givens. As one character explains to a new member to the fold: -

Look, here’s the thing about being rich, It’s fucking great. It’s like being a superhero, only better. You get to do what you want, the authorities can’t really touch you, you get to wear a costume, but it’s designed by Armani, and it doesn’t make you look like a prick.

Also upcoming on the 16th of the month we have season 2 of David Fincher's Mindhunter landing, which looks to build on quality work of the first season to continue telling the tale of the growth of the fledgeling FBI profiling team and their ongoing attempts to understand the mindset of serial killers through interviews and analysis



Looks like we are getting Manson, and more of everyone favourite the Co-Ed killer, Ed Kemper.

I can't wait for season 2 of Mindhunter. I am currently watching Wu Assassins but I just started it so I can't give any feedback on it quite yet.


I just finished The Boys on Prime and it was great imo. I am not familiar with the comic so I didn't have any preconceived notions of what to expect.

Looks like my next prime show will be Jack Ryan. Its been on my list for a while but as a huge Office fan it can be tough seeing Jim in other roles. :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I tossed my television into the alley from a third-story apartment almost 30 years ago. I haven't watched television since. I can't even be in the same room as a television, because everything is so repulsive it drives me out. Television is comically bad, it was bad when I threw mine out and it has gotten far worse.

I guess TV watchers must be mentally acclimated to utter, irredeemable garbage. I can't imagine why anyone wastes their time on television.

As you don't watch it how would you know? 🤔

You might want to familiarise yourself with the Site Rules at this juncture if you want to stick around Edgelord. Management tends to take a dim view of 'you guys are tards for liking X' style posts tbh.

If you're not into TV, don't post.

Making a statement like this on a videogame forum says a lot more about you than "tv watchers". Maybe you should spend some time looking in a mirror and reflecting.

This might actually be treatable, I would bring this up with your therapist during your next session. Exposure therapy can work wonders from what I hear.

Started season 1 of Silicon Valley again last night. This will be he fourth time watching it from beginning to end. It’s not a bad marathon since there are only 10 episodes max per season. I know they are doing another season, eventually, but I like how it all comes together at the end.

I really need to finish my collection with TMNT 2012. I have half of the episodes and I really want to go through it next.

Finished up Titans, which was enjoyable. Watching Doom Patrol, Perpetual Grace Ltd., Animal Kingdom (season 4) and am catching up on Chernobyl. I am pleasantly surprised at how the current DC shows are beating the other shit out there.

Stranger Things... I’ve only seen season 1 back when it first came out, now I’m re-watching it for preparations of season 2-3.

And ...





Code Geass: Lelouch of the rebellion + R2

which I just finished up, but I figured it was worth mentioning it. It’s a pretty decent but can be at times a very confusing anime with so many damn twists and turns.

Finished Glow S3.
Still a good show, but my enjoyment is going down a little each season. I watched S1 two or three times, but doubt I'll ever watch S2 or S3 again. Will definitely tune in if a 4th gets made, though.

Been watching through Star Trek: TNG with my wife, 1 or 2 episodes a night. Nearly done with Season 3. Next is DS9 (which she hasn't watched) and after that we'll watch Voyager (which is her fav; I can tolerate it).

I literally did the same thing with my wife about 10 years ago, might be time to give it a go again I miss a regular Star Trek Series.


But right now Im on season 4 of Justified
