I've wanted to get around to it. I really like Neil Patrick Harris (Dr. Horrible, HIMYM when Barney was awesome in the first few seasons), and I've thought it looked like old (good) Tim Burton. Eventually I plan on watching it.

I know you're a cartoon fan, but the new season of Samurai Jack is coming in March from what I read. So I might have to watch that before it releases.

Oh I'll be all over Samurai Jack. Don't really feel a need to go back first since episodes were pretty self contained though. Every now and then someone like the Scottsman would come back but that's about it. Can't wait to see them end the story.

Also if you like HIMYM, Cobie Smulders is in ASoUE, she does an end segment I don't want to spoil with Will Arnett. Show has one hell of a cast.

I am loving this show Halt and Catch Fire. Into Season 3 now. It starts by dealing with the dawn of the personal computer era then sort of goes into early gaming and online interactions which makes it even cooler since obviously I'm into that stuff.

This has been my favorite season of Man Seeking Woman so far. Lucy has been a great addition and the episode where they go to her parents' house may be my favorite episode in the series.

Son of Zorn has been staying funny way longer than I thought it would. I think it's a good thing this is on Fox and not Adult Swim where you normally get shows like it. They often focus too much on the weird while Zorn is more grounded which makes all the strange crap funnier.

Black Sails ended and it is at least in the mix for my top ten all-time favorite shows. The first season is a little slow to get going, but really takes off by the end. Seasons 2, 3 and 4 are just excellent. Kind of crazy how consistently great it is over that 30 episode stretch. And the end is very satisfying. It is a prequel to Treasure Island which I somehow never read when I was in school, so I'm going to check that out next. I was a little worried that the finale would have to be setting up the book so wouldn't make for a good ending to the show on its own, but that wasn't the case at all. Couldn't recommend this show enough. Just awesome.

I'm so hooked on Justified right now. Kind of combines US Marshall procedural elements and a southern crime drama with a modernized "old west" feel.

The killer is probably Mickey, the freaky Tarantino film student!

I'm on Season 4 now. Season 2 was every bit as awesome as people said. It hasn't been as good since, but I like the characters and setting enough that I'm still really enjoying it a lot.

Season 2 is definitely the best. The last couple of seasons are still entertaining but you can tell as the seasons go that the sort of run out of ideas.

I finished Justified. It was such a great show. Season 6 was awesome and made for a great ending for the show. I'd probably rank the seasons 2>6>4>1>3>5. 2 and 6 are really close at the top. And 5 is definitely at the bottom for me. The three in the middle I'm less sure on.

Great dialogue is like my favorite thing and Justified has it in a way that is much different than some of my past favorites like Veronica Mars. I could listen to Boyd talk all day. I loved the expanded cast of characters too. There are so many guest or recurring characters that I loved from the Bennets to Loretta to Wynn Duffy to Boon. The show obviously leans heavily on Raylan and Boyd, but I was impressed with a lot of the smaller characters and how uniquely they fit into the show's aesthetic and the Harlan region.

Glad I finally was able to watch this. I wouldn't have imagined liking it so much. I think I may try Twin Peaks next that way I can watch the new season if I like it.

Finished Kimmy Schmidt season 3. Felt they kept going out of their way to take shots at the 2016 election which got annoying, but other than that it was really funny. Especially loved the Washington Redskins arc.

Watched Stranger Things again. Man I love that show.

Started up A Series of Unfortunate Events and planned on watching it with my wife. She didn't seem too into it though, and if I'm being honest I kind of was let down by the 35 minutes I watched. Might watch one more episode to see if I'm going to continue.

I got one of those X1 DVR systems for my place finally, so I can watch my DVR'd stuff in the living room and my bedroom and record a bunch of shows at once. My former ancient DVR could only record two things at once or one while you watch something live. So big upgrade. I love it. Anyway, some stuff I've been watching lately.

Fargo Season 3 just wasn't as good as the first two. I felt it lacked the driving force of Billy Bob Thornton's character in S1 or the grander scope of S2. A lot of the Fargo parts were there, but it never quite comes together to reach those former heights. One of the new characters teams up with a recurring character late in the season though and it is really cool. The clear highlight of the season.

Better Call Saul Season 3 was its best yet and on my short list for best show of the year. The episode "Chicanery" in particular about as good as TV gets. I enjoyed the inclusion of Gus this year too.

I started up Fleabag on Amazon which is really funny. Sometimes fourth wall breaking stuff bugs me, but it is just really funny here. Just the main character looking at the screen cracks me up. Halfway through the season and looking forward to watching the rest.

I've been watching an old webseries on YouTube called Nirvana The Band The Show. Great stuff. It's been adapted into a TV show on Viceland now, which I haven't seen but I've heard it's great. Just a comedy about two guys trying to get a gig, has nothing to do with Nirvana (sorry Bret) and little to do with music in general. Well produced for a webseries, too. It wouldnt have been out of place on TV if not for the short episode length.

I watched the first two episodes of Hooten & the Lady. It is a British import they are airing on The CW this summer. It is a treasure-hunting adventure series and a lot of fun. Reminds me a lot of Romancing the Stone and Uncharted. They even go after El Dorado in the first episode. I'm a sucker for these sort of stories, so I'm really excited to see the rest of the season. Other Uncharted fans here might enjoy it.
