When I think about things like that I think about DB Weiss' lack of credentials when he started on Game of Thrones and that I was the only person, I think, on Earth that read his freshman effort.

Minor thread necromancy just to comment that I absolutely loved Lucky Wander Boy, and somehow managed to avoid connecting that it was the same person show running Game of Thrones until like a week ago, and ever since I learned that have been mildly annoyed because it means that he'll probably never go back to writing books.

Maybe they'll have him finish the last Thrones book after Martin baconators himself 6 feet under.   awesome, for real

Rasix mentioned it earlier in the thread, but if you haven't watched Santa Clarita Diet, it is highly recommended.  Really funny.  Barrymore is good, and Timothy Olyphant is great.  Supporting cast, especially the kids, also great.

I am avoiding the GoT thread as I couldn't watch the episode yet, but here is:

Need some ideas for some good situation comedy on Netflix.  Wife and I are getting to the end of a Modern Family run and looking to find something to replace it.  Suggestions?  Looking for something in a similar vein.

That probably requires knowing what you've already watched.

Salvation is a horrible example how to totally ruin an interesting idea (asteroid on course to hit earth) with stupid writing.

Ok, so I've got two that you may or may not have watched.

1) The Middle - While I never personally got into The Middle it was ok the times I did catch an episode. I'm not big on family comedies but it was entertaining enough I didn't turn it off.
2) Raising Hope - This show never got the praise I think it should have. It's by the guy who did My Name is Earl (and has some callbacks there at times) It's the lower-class version of shows like Modern Family.

This assumes you've already watched the other standards like The Office, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, The Office, It's Always Sunny, Scrubs, and Malcom in the Middle.

Malcom always deserves a re-watch if you haven't seen it in years. I think I'll start that myself this week.

Thanks, I'll add those to the list of possibilities.  Being in filthy Euroland, I have actually seen virtually none of those, save AD (and that only recently).

Oh! I forgot you were a Euro. Then yeah, all of that list.

Hell, if you're able to slog through early 90's tropes then Married With Children is a must. Ed O'Neil in Modern Family is an older Al Bundy who's learned to feel in his 2nd marriage.

I would second the recommendation for Raising Hope. It's hilarious from start to finish, Garret Dillahunt is amazing in the Dad's role and you get to see Elsie from Westworld in a comedic role.

Community would be my recommendation, though I'd probably stop at the end of Season 3.

For some reason I've been itching to watch Northern Exposure again.  I only saw it the one time back in the 90s and really loved it.

It was brilliant.   And then wasn't.  Much like Due South.

Speaking of Stephen King... does anyone know anything about that alleged "Castlerock" series that's supposed to be airing on Hulu at some point in the near/far/never future?
