What are you lot watching?

I'm not sure everything I'm listing will be to your liking, but I have been enjoying the new seasons of:

Crazy Ex Girlfriend
Gigi does it
Nathan for you
Benders

I would expect Nathan for you to be shown in the UK, but the others might not travel so well (Benders especially).

* Yes, I did try and arrange the list (in)appropriately. *

** They aren't the worst things you could watch though. **
Forest

Narcos - really really really great show about Pablo Escobar and the Colombian drug Cartels. Its on Netflix

Last Man on Earth - US post apocalyptic comedy, think it's shown on Dave over here

The Strain - Nazis spread a Zombie virus in New York, it's mental.

Mr Pickles - cartoon about a dog possessed by Satan. This is funny but could be the sickest thing on telly.
Grind

I'm watching the Last Man on Earth here too - I think they could do more with it, but it's funny enough and the lead bloke is the spitting image of the gonk who plays on my outdoor team on Sundays in both looks and character.

I got fed up with The Strain towards the end of the last season, although I do agree with it being a bit mental.

Not seen the others, although Narcos has good reviews.

I quite like The League too - based loosely around an american footie fantasy league, but not as bad as it sounds, promise.
Forest

Have you seen The Jinx?
Grind

Nope - I am a bit random when it comes to choosing stuff to watch.

I'm catching up on some of the League Cup games (real footie) on the box at the moment, but peering at the planner, other shows I like at the moment aso include:

You're the worst
American Horror Story
Fargo

AMH is awful now, watched the start of the new season and its lost up its own arse. FFS Lady GaGa is in it.

Get The Jinx watched instead
Grind

I've not watched any of the latest AHS yet, so may well take your advice and watch The Jinx instead (I can get it on demand).

I've not fully explored HBO yet - we've only got it now because we upgraded our cable plan to include a phone line and it seems like we get all the fancy channels, at least for now.

Just finished watching Man Yoo feck up their penalties. Heh, heh.
Frazier Cranium

Heard that The Jinx was superb but will have to wait for it to hit Catch Up.

Leftovers - shit title - is still intriguing, though second series hasn't matched rthe first yet so far.

Breaking Bad on DVD - we're savouring it.

Homeland - a bit annoying, just like world conflicts and terrirsm I suppose eh

Ray Donovan possibly the best thing I watched for a long time.

Need to watch the original and remakes of House of Cards
Cutsyke

Binged on Narcos when it came out. Great show.

Can I take a punt and maybe embarrass myself a bit here and suggest Daredevil?

He's sort of like Batman with no money. Plus he only takes care of Hell's Kitchen rather than New York or the world. There's real chemistry between the lad who plays Daredevil, his partner in a law firm (shades of the criminally under used in Hollywood, Oliver Platt) and the girl who ends up working for them. The nurse who stitches him up is seriously fucking tasty and, hopefully, plays a bigger role in series two, out soon. A lot of people like the villain. I think he's a bit laboured but I'm in the minority. His right hand man is good.

Give it a go anyway. Moves slow or builds nicely? I'm in the builds nicely camp. Only one episode that I thought was poor but the rest, good, good stuff.
Frazier Cranium

Forgot to mention the BBC3 comedy 'The Detectorists' which is just really mild and witty, great cast too.  Toby Jones, Mackenzie Crook to name but two.

Not got Netflix so we definitely miss out on stuff early on.  Big Marvel fan, and DC to lesser extent, and Daredevil always one of my fave stories and character.  'Gotham' isn't too painful.

But for outright nauseating, I have watched, alone, five series of Walking Dead.  Strong stomach needed but it's been great
Heyho

The moaning of life - although this series isn't his best
Law & Order UK - something to fall asleep to
Unforgotten - not bad for a prime time ITV detective series

Other than that not a lot

I was surprised how good Daredevil is, expected it to be aimed at a younger audience because of its Marvel origins but it's very dark and the violence quite graphic.
fartcatcher

New series of Catastrophe started. Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan. First series was excellent.

I also watch Gogglebox - no you fuck off - the geordie girl Scarlett is hilarious - should be doing stand up.
Cutsyke

Phew! I've seen most of the Marvel stuff with my kids. Have to say I enjoyed Daredevil the most.

I'm with you - she comes out with some right classics.

So does the gay bloke with glasses that sits on the right

Loved and repeatedly watched Band Of Brothers and The Sopranos. Breaking Bad. Enjoyed them all (except for The Fly), watched them all except for the last three. Strangley, I have no desire to ever see them or watch it again.

Weeds - first two seasons and possibly a bit beyond that for Doug and Andy and the odd flash of Nancy in the nip.

Mrs used to watch a show called Six Feet Under, was that any good? I know I'm going off topic a bit but that's what conversations generally do isn't t?
Frazier Cranium

Six Feet Under was slow and a bit pretentious, but I thought the first series was really dead good (ho ho ho)- a bit shocking but original and sound storylines and actors.
smiling badger

Catastrophe second series which is ok but not as good as the first but some cringeworthy stuff in it.

Read the Bernard Cornwell books and started watching the tellivised series. Boring as fook compared to the book.

Gogglebox is well worth a watch though. the gay guys are quite witty at times.

Making a Murderer

Jessica Jones

Venture Bros. - series 5

Limmys Show
Late Doors

Country File, Sundays, essential viewing
fartcatcher

It was quite dramatic last week when those geordie 'travellers' threatened to set about the serious chap.

Never miss the weather forecast for the week ahead either.

I'm quite into stuff with subtitles now. It makes me concentrate rather than piddling about on my phone. Mrs FC hates them though so have to watch in the spare room.

Deutschland 83

Watched all the Oscar nominated films and here's my guesses who will win

Best Film & Director - The Revenant. Superb film.
Best Actor- De Caprio
Best Actress - Brie Larson
Grind

Best Foreign Cheese.
Dock

Lucky Man - Drama written by Stan Lee the famous comic book bloke. Starring James Nesbitt. On Sky 1.

The most recent series of the crime drama 'Shetland'. Fridays on BBC1. V. Good.

Gogglebox, have never missed one single episode. Brilliant telly.

The HBO show 'Last Week Tonight' on Sky Atlantic. Hosted by the brilliant British comedian John Oliver. Required viewing. Can't recommend it enough. For hilarious biting satire on real political issues, law, morality, corruption, and awareness-raising it leaves shows like Have I Got News For You in the shade. A very brave show considering the safeness of a lot of U.S. Telly, but I suppose that's what a quality outfit like HBO do best.

Grind

I like John Oliver too - he's very good.
Grind

Just started watching Prey (on Beeb America).

Might be okey - but I got irritated with the last Beeb show I watched - London Spy - because it eventually ended up being, well, total bollocks.
Grind

You've got to see Oliver's "Drumpf" bit from the last weekend.

It will hopefully stop the idiot once and for all.

Watched it. Fantastic stuff! See link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TGc2nN9OguQ

Good job!

Disappointed by Jessica Jones, Looking forward to Daredevil season two on the 18th.
Grind

I've been enjoying "It's always sunny in Philadelphia" and "Broad City" of late.

There are a few episodes of "Man seeking woman" on the DVR too.

All of the X-Files - from the beginning - just five seasons to go
Sir Bulldog Craggwood

House of Cards - back with series four tonight on Netflix. Series 3 was a let down

After a dodgy start this new series has been excellent even with Duchovney sleepwalking through his part.

I've watched three of them (I think there are only six in total?) and it hasn't really grabbed me much.

That said, I never bothered to watch the earlier incarnation, so perhaps I'm missing a whole load of in-jokes?
Grind

I like "Crazy Ex-girlfriend" more than I probably should.
Grind

Baskets (featuring Zach Galifianakis as a crap rodeo clown) is a bit of a slow burner, but I'm enjoying it.
Forest

Bobs Burgers, took a few eps to get this but it's the funniest cartoon on telly
Grind

Not sure if I've mentioned these on here before, but I am enjoying Documentary Now! and Another Period.
Forest

Last Man on Earth

Westworld

Star Wars Rebels. Probably meant for kids but I love it.
Grind

I'm quite enjoying Westworld here as well.
Dock

Westworld is a big hit in our house as well. Two episodes in. Liking it a lot.

Also enjoying:

Treasures of the British Library on Sky Arts. Mrs D put me on to it. Very interesting series.

7th series of The Walking Dead on Sky Atlantic. Just brill! I can't flower it up more than that.

Planet Earth II. Usual David Attenborough standard.

Current tv turn offs:

All news. Just agenda-led shite about shitehouses presented by shitehouses. All bullshit. I stopped buying newspapers years ago and now I'm knocking telly news on the head as well. I think after events this year and how they have been reported in the mass media I can no longer waste one more second of my life watching their crap. I'm out!
Late Doors

Apologies for the dreary crustly old normal telly selections but recently we have massively enjoyed Poldark, The Missing, The Fall and Normal Lies.
Grind

The third series just finished here: I quite like You're the Worst.
Dock

Strictly. Final this weekend!

Mrs D has always liked it and I've never been arsed about it. But this series I've gotten into it. I like the technical stuff the judges come out with. The dancing is excellent, really athletic.

Watched the last two episodes of Modus the latest BBC 4 Swedish cop drama yesterday.

Do not waste yer time, each episode became progressively tamer and the plot weaker.

Don't bother.

Not a fan of the Nordic whodunit genre. I can watch films with subtitles, but for me personally it makes telly drama's clunky and spoils the flow of the narrative.

Polar Bear Town.

Yeah, thought it was one of the best shows on telly this year, final episode was incredibly sad.
