What are you watching? [2016-17]

Sep 20, '16, 8:51pm

With the new TV season, I decided that we needed a new thread to discuss the things that we are watching. For the old post you can check it out here: https://kindafunnyforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=64

For this fresh new thread I would like to implement some guidelines as to what should and should not be posted on here to keep the thread on topic.

  1. This thread is only for TV series. You can post up conversations about the current films you are watching Here, and current anime you are watching Here (Frequent Youtube shows/Podcasts, however, are ok) .
  2. Please keep the discussion to shows that don't have their own topics. For example if you are watching CW's The Flash, you can discuss it over on that dedicated thread so that we don't have a double up of conversations going. You can view a list of all the shows with dedicated topics here: TV Series Directory
  3. Try to keep to as minimum posts a day as possible. If you watch multiple shows in one day, you can edit your previous post. This is not a thread to help you pad your post count, but to generate discussions about shows that don't really require a full dedicated thread.

Further guidelines may be added to this thread, so check back often.

Designated Survivor - It just popped up on Netflix UK, what a nice surprise. I thought the pilot was pretty good, it was nice seeing Kiefer and Maggie Q on the TV again.

Just recently finished a show on Netflix called Last Chance U. It has six, one hour, episodes so not to long of a time investment. It'seems fantastic though. Here's the thing, if you don't like football this isn't for you. If you do then I highly recommend watching it. It is about a small community college in East Mississippi that became incredibly good when they started poaching the athletes from larger schools that had disciplinary issues. So they have immense talent and are playing no very good, very small community colleges. It follows these players and coaches around during the 2015 season. It's really interesting to see the day to day of these athletes lives. It also follows anot administrative person who is in charge of making sure the athletes go to class and get good grades. But it's what happens on the field that's most interesting. Once again, I'd highly recommend watching this IF your a fan of football or just wanna know what it's like at a football teams practice or during games. Great insight to how a team operates. Just FYI there is tons of cursing. About an F word every 3 mins lol just like real football. so if that isn't your thing then pass over this. But give this a watch people. It's great

3rd Rock from the Sun - I love this show. I'm bout mid way through the last season. John Lithgow is just freaking hilarious.

And speaking of John Lithgow.

Dexter - toward the end of the 4th season. I'm watching it with a group. One of whom has never seen the show. I'll probably bail out after the 4th season ends.

Longmire - I'm slowly but surely making my way through the show. I doubt I'll be done in time for the new season, but it's on Netflix. It'll be there when I get there.

Adventure Time - Nearly done with the first season. Kinda glad I'm late to the party. There's so much to enjoy.

I believe that's all that's on my plate at the moment.

Decided to rewatch The Pacific. While I like both it and Band of Brothers, I always felt The Pacific was the weaker of the two Tom Hanks WW2 miniseries. I'm rewatching it to see if that sentiment still holds up.

It wasn't bad, but it's only been one episode and they recruited new members to the team. I don't know how it will be in the long run without DiNozzo.

Today I watched:
MacGyver
Survivor AU
Blacklist

I wasn't that much of a fan of NCIS but I did watch NCISLA and Hawaii Five 0 but I've dropped them this season because its just too much stuff to watch.

Just started watching Hooten and the Lady S1E2, really loving this show and sure it's really cheesy adventure stuff but I enjoy it.

I dropped Hawaii a season or so ago because I grew tired of how full of itself it had become. I still quite enjoy NCIS LA simply because of the character dynamics, like the buddy cops between Sam and G, the weird thing the Wonder twins have going on, and of course the Deeks / Kenzi relationship. Plus Hetti has to be one of the coolest bosses on TV atm. NCIS will have a hard time getting its grove I think after the cast change, and perhaps it may be time to retire the show.

Better Things - I was a big fan of the guest appearances on this week's episode. Lenny Kravitz's character was pretty great and it was fun to see David Duchovney as well.
