The Crown is some first class monarchy history porn.

I've become hooked on Forged in Fire.  It's basically Chopped but with blacksmiths making a knife in 6 hours with challenges. Then the top 2 go back to their home forges and make a historical weapon. It's on the History Channel. They test the weapon by hacking and slicing on all sorts of shit. It's hokey as hell, but I dig it.  I'm actually contemplating taking blacksmith classes I've become so enamored with it.

There's actually a show like this?  That's awesome.  I'll have to look it up for my brother in law... he'll love it.  I love shows where people make thingies.

John Lithgow deserves an emmy and stuff for his portrayal of Winston Churchill. So damn good.

I'm 3ep in to Westworld. Not reading the thread for fear of spoilers. I feel it can go either way. Worth continuing?

Your tastes are odd (as much as I can recall), so I won't presume. I consider season 1 of Westworld to be the second best thing HBO has ever done. I'm including single seasons of Rome/Deadwood/Sopranos/GoT etc. Not better than The Wire. Well, maybe better than season 5.

Ok I'll keep watching.

I don't watch much TV, I'm picky. I find entertainment that makes me think or that I interact with in some way much better.

This is at least somewhat provocative to date. I'm just wary of it going all 'American' and trying to explain everything and being less about interesting questions and imagination.

Westworld is pretty good and the (first) season has a plot that gets resolved to the point where it wouldn't have been a total waste of time even if there wouldn't be a second season to look forward to.

Just finished watching the first 3 seasons of "The Fall". Decent show overall, but really damn dark. The ending of the arc (they're going to do a 4th season, I think, with a new issue) was interesting, and not what I expected. It did not lighten the mood.  awesome, for real

It was possibly a bit far up it's own ass at times with the non-subtle messaging and trying-too-hard cinematography, but was a really interesting look at all aspects of such a dire set of crimes. Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan are the stars and both do pretty damn well in their respective roles.

I'm up to date with "The Fall".  It was a bit depressing and sometimes felt a little slow, but I thought it was pretty brilliant, too.  I thought Gillian Anderson was the best she's ever been.  I had never seen Jamie Dornan before this show and I wonder why... he's very, very good.

Hap and Leonard is back for the second season and it's awesome based on the first episode (but then again I'm a big fan of Lansdale's crime books so a bit biased).  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

Binged through Santa Clarita Diet. It was worth watching. Felt like it ended at a strange point, but it was a lot of fun. Olyphant and Barrymore are great in this. Unique take on the whole zombie genre. 

Also rewatching The Wire in between getting disappointed by other shows (Vikings, Arrow, Iron Fist). Still the best show ever and an excellent palate cleanser.
