Really? It has gotten a pretty tepid/soft response from critics and fans. Was it better than Daredevil? That's been my fave so far.

None of the marvel tv stuff works for me. Interesting, compelling characters, but too much good guy/bad guy.

I would say I feel this way about most of the comic book stuff that gets made into movies and television but season 1 of Legion was a lot of fun.

After watching the commercials I was leary to try it but my on demand service will sometimes start charging for past seasons of a show so if I don't keep up I am subject to charges and refuse to pay.. this happened to me with The Americans and I am still butt hurt about it.
Anyway, I tried an episode and was immediately taken with it. I particularly like the way it pays homage to the sixties.. It reminds me of the vibe in The Incredibles.

Just finished second season, really good show. Not sure how far into first season you are but there are some serious narrative twists coming up.

Finished season one of 'Man in the High Castle', not sure, I think the book was 'better' but they did a pretty good adaptation all things considered. Same for most of PKD's stuff, works mostly as a jumping off point once Hollywood gets a hold of it (See 'Blade Runner' for example).

Well, I loved the first episode because of the protagonist and his world. Once the whole Christian Slater/hacker thing kicked off I am finding it less interesting. Watched 5 episodes. Wasn't sure if I should rent 2nd disk... ok you twisted my arm. :D

.
Horace and Pete

If you can find somewhere to watch it (you can't), can overlook some of the more obnoxious minor characters, and are comfortable being immersed in a world of crippling depression, then you might find this enjoyable.

Watched the first two episodes of American Gods. Not ready to make an endorsement yet, but it definitely has my attention.

Great title sequence. I watched the first six and then stopped and read the book. I really liked the book. The series is good, too.

Ha! Sounds like how I feel about "Bloodline".. One utterly depressing movie jammed with filler and stretched out into a series.

Don't get me wrong. I liked it, but can understand why some people wouldn't.

Absolutely loved Daredevil and Punisher.

Jessica Jones was bland/mediocre by comparison.

Haven't seen Iron Fist. The reviews aren't encouraging.

I watch a bit of Punisher just for the female cop. :D

Lately enjoying Justified and Deadwood. Guess I'm on an Olyphant kick, but drawing the line at that Santa Clarita diet ****.
