TV - What's your passion (NON-sports)?

Goliath season 3 is solid. Season 2 got a little bizarre and the first episode of 3 started great then they kind of went that bizarre route again forbthe last 15 minutes , but straightened out after that. I’m digging the season. Season 1 is still the gold standard and billy bob is fantastic

There are a lot of excellent British dramas. Masterpiece debuted a new one last night on PBS. It's entitled "Press" and the first 2 episodes were shown last night. I'm halfway through the first hour and already totally drawn in. It's described as "a drama about two U.K. newspapers." Thus far, they've touched on a couple of issues near and dear to my heart because of my experiences in journalism and the press. I think this is gonna be a keeper.

It's that time again!

It's November 1st, which means it's time for the first official rankings for Mr. Slim's personal Top 10 shows of the 2019-20 season. Since I don't recognize the summer as a separate TV season, I consider the 2019-20 television season to have started on July 1, 2019. Only shows whose first episode of the season aired on or after July 1st are eligible for this ranking.

And, again, this ranking is for regular TV/cable, only. No streaming-exclusive shows are allowed, for the purposes of this list:

  1. S.W.A.T. (N/A)
  2. Stumptown (N/A)
  3. Killjoys (N/A)
  4. WWE NXT (N/A)
  5. The Good Place (N/A)
  6. Arrow (N/A)
  7. Supergirl (N/A)
  8. The Flash (N/A)
  9. Batwoman (N/A)
  10. This is Us (N/A)

* - excludes streaming-exclusive shows

Love all the content...talk about nostalgia. Just watched the 1st episode of The Mandalorian. So far so good. Next episode drops today.
I just watched the first 3 episodes and I'm hoping it gets a bit better. The pacing is a bit too slow and the story simplistic. I'm enjoying the Star Wars "world", but I'm hoping this starts getting a bit more interesting.

ah man bummer you are not really digging it. We are loving it, but I get what you are saying. On a related note, taking the kids and their cousins to Disneyland in 2 weeks, pretty pumped about Star Wars land. Also have a bar scouted out for the Niner/Saint game that Sunday morning lol

Caught up to the end of season 3 of The Expanse. While season 2 was a bit up and down, season 3 definitely gets moving in the right direction again. Season 4 drops in a couple weeks. Yay!

Watching the Runaways season 1 on Disney+ and it seems to be geared toward the younger/90210 crowd a bit so far (with teenagery angst and SoCal vibe, not my thing), but about halfway through the season it's picking up a bit as far as the story. It has dragged and could have been a couple episodes shorter without sacrificing anything.

Want to start watching Jack Ryan season 2 at some point, but was getting caught up on Flash, Black Lightning, Supergirl, and Batwoman, all of which have been decent/good, but Supergirl and Batwoman have been a little more hit and miss at times.

Still haven't gotten back to Man in the High Castle, but need to at some point.
