The new season of 24 is good. It's classic Bauer.

I just started watching True Detectives and the latest season of VEEP. HBO On Demand is really nice.

Silicone Valley is pretty good. It is a fun thing to watch after an intense show like Game of Thrones.

I really like The Americans too. I have a love/hate relationship with Fargo. Being from MN, the accents make me cringe. Some of them border on Irish, but it's still funny. Great show so far, though.

A couple of shows I binged on lately - Sherlock (BBC) and Orphan Black. Sherlock is good. Will be another year or two til the next season. The latter is in the middle of it's 2nd season right now. Unique premise. The lead actress has got to be a very busy lady playing multiple parts. Funny and interesting show.

I got caught up on Fargo this week, really good. The cast works together so well. My wife likes Orphan Black, I'll find time to watch it soon.

Just finished Silicon Valley, great show, I really liked it. Can't wait for the season finale of Game of Thrones, this past episode was amazing.

Been a great season.
Not sure if I'd like it to be a regular series every year again, but after a few years off it has come back with a bang.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia just started their 10th season with a classic episode and it was even sort of baseball themed. In "The Gang Beats Boggs" they try to beat Wade Boggs' legendary record of downing 50 beers (some say it was more like 70) on a cross-country flight. Boggs even makes a cameo. Take Me Out To The Ballgame is played whenever the scoreboard updates. Hilarious episode.

I love Better Call Saul. Really fills the Breaking Bad void.

Did anyone see The Jinx (HBO) about Robert Durst? I just binged on it yesterday - very good. Only 6 episodes. Holy cow, what a creepy dude. True stories are hard to beat, but it's amazing how they got a couple of full sit down interviews with the (alleged) killer.

Great to have both shows back. I'm excited about this season as they are wrapping up content from the books and will start to move beyond them. My understanding is that although the show and books are separate entities with different stories, the major events will be mostly the same. Minor characters might get axed prematurely but big players shouldn't be affected.

I like it too. I had never heard of it, but happened to catch the first episode from a hotel room. I like shows that aren't safe or predictable. Great start, hope they continue to build on it.

This is probably guilty pleasure territory, but I'm watching Live PD on A&E and it is addicting. It's like Cops, but live. Crazy car chase in Spokeane, WA going on right now. Dude is heading for the Idaho border.
