I bought Season 1 of AMERICAN GODS and just watched episode 1. Initial setup with the story is a bit awkward, but gives a good payoff moment with Technical Boy displaying his power.

Really enjoying the visuals so far; I believe Fuller also produced the stylized Hannibal TV show on NBC.

I broke down and bought Westworld S2 on bluray (don't have 4k tv yet)

How to put this...let's just say some shows I can't justify paying for the station living in Canada, because if I wanted lets say HBO I would also have to purchase Showtime which I don't want and my cable package is already too much, so let's just say those HBO shows have to be viewed another way, and HBO GO is not available in Canada (last I checked)

Long story short, I got a few letters ok? and had to halt my alternative method of watching HBO stuff, so I only got up to episode 4 in Westworld S2.

I see the BluRay in Walmart for an incredibly reasonable $39.99 CAD.

Is this a sign of things to come? Usually I try not to go for physical media because it's usually so overpriced. But that seemed very reasonable to me and I felt bad that I wasn't given the option to affordably watch Westworld where I live and resorted to the alternative method that I'm ashamed of. So I made it up to them by giving them some money (which I would do more if the prices/methods were more reasonable)

Usually BluRay seasons of popular shows are twice that price here.

Anyway, damn does physical HD media look and sound amazing. We're all doing so much streaming we forget how good uncompressed HD media looks. Absolutely stunning.

I’ve slowly been watching through Black Mirror. Just watch the episode White Christmas. Wow that was amazing! Favorite episode so far.
Is that the last episode of the second season? I enjoyed the first season but was disappointed with the second until that episode. I haven't seen anything beyond season two yet but I'll get to it eventually.

Yes it was last episode of season 2. For some reason Netflix wants to play every season in reverse order.

Just watched Black Mirror episode Nosedive. BDH was great in the episode, and the way social media is going some aspects of this episode doesn’t seem that far off lol.

The new Watership Down on Netflix is really good. The darkest story starring talking animals I've ever seen. Kind of reminds me of Battlestar Galactica.

Edit: Just finished it. Probably the best Netflix Original they've ever produced. Simply brilliant. Watch this now.

Watched all of Super Store over the last month or so, very underappreciated show. Hopefully it stays on the air.

Started Crashing the other day with the girl. On season 2 already, this show is hilarious

Watched the first 3 episodes of the new season of Young Justice, not as good as the previous seasons but there is still a long way to go.

True Detective (S3E1) - Good

Good setup. Very ambient. Story seems pretty interesting.
I found it to be a bit slow and boring. Nt fan of the whole present to past to present flipping either.

I'll give it another couple of episodes, though.

Finally watched the latest episode of Black Mirror - Bandersnatch. It is interactive, so you need to watch it on a computer, tablet, etc. Was good, not great. Definitely a good mind fu** (what else would Black Mirror be).

Started Punisher season 2. Decent so far. Think it might suffer from "how do you make the same thing interesting over and over". Great action of course.

I wish I had time to rewatch my box set before the new season hits. I will watch from beginning to end again some day. I’m sure there is a lot I missed and the show is one of the best ever.

Finished The Looming Tower this past weekend. Great show.

Started season two of True Detective. Only a couple episodes in but so far decent enough.
