Has anyone been watching HBO's Vinyl? I've been enjoying it, even though its been getting a lot of mixed reception. I'm curious what some of you guys think of this show.

Wait, is season 2 on? I finished Season 1 in January, and even though the show failed to deliver on a lot of its promise, I still thought it was of to a good start, and I wanted more.

Not sure why folks are being so hard on it. It's well written and fairly well crafted, surprisingly well acted at times. A good series, but for anyone expecting Breaking Bad version 2.0 (or, -1, er whatever), I can see how they'd be disappointed.

nothing like Breaking Bad and nothing will be.

yes, the second season has been on for months now. trying to catch up with the first season so I can catch the second season marathon. if not, it's no biggie.

X-files.

skipped over the ones I've seen and focused on the mythology. made it to season seven. the season when Mulder finally tries to hit on Scully. when she's out of that stupid uniform she's a real fine beauty to behold but, she seems to fall for psychos. can't figure Mulder out. did he give up, content jacking off to porn? he could totally bag Scully and make her his. he's a confident witty guy. da fuck!!... tis was the 90's after all. oh dream woman Scully!!! you get my rocks off.

reminds me of a joke: there's two kinds of redheads.....

The answer to your questions are answered...in season 9. I think you can skip season 8.

been getting a kick out of a couple of comedies. Letterkenny, about a passle of young hicks up in rural Canada, and Fleabag about a horny 30 year old cafe owner in London. Both of these are worth a watch

Really? Good! Glad to hear. I've been meaning to get to this, but I've been worried about having another Game of Thrones/Walking Dead blood-porn fuckaround on my hands. I swear, for everything GoT gets right from the endlessly entertaining (if imperfect and less literary than many think) books, there's a whole fuckton of awful shit that translates terribly onto the screen. I'm about damn sick of deliberately disturbing and infuriating shows driving people batshit for 9 episodes and then letting the world sit and stew for 9 months.

But I remember seeing the original movie, and it seems like there's much less opportunity for disgusting bullshit than on these other shows.

I have HBO for a reason, I suppose, even though I almost never watch it now that I've re-watched Eastbound & Down and soaked up VICE PRINCIPALS (good times... I like having fun watching tv), so I'll probably give this a look-see in the next couple days.

Also, I've gotten so used to the Netflix "watch at your own pace" style of releasing shows that I find 1 hour is just not enough goddamn television for me anymore, especially when there's a cliffhanger. I only have maybe 2 nights a week where I have time to watch ANYTHING so it's just kind of infuriating to come home from a long ass day at work and sit down to 60 minutes that ends with a big ??? and leaves me thinking, "Ok. Now what? That wasn't very relaxing."

So I've kinda been more inclined to let the episodes stack up a bit so I can at least watch 2 at a time.

Blah.

I've been blunting my IQ with CW superhero shows.

Don't judge me, assholes.

They're all SO stupid, but fun to varying degrees. The Flash, for instance, is downright ridiculous 50% of the time, but it seems to be aware of that ridiculousness so the fun moments aren't ruined. Sometimes it takes me back to watching Richard Donner's Superman when I was just a lad. That's a great feeling, definitely worth a bit of collateral retardation.

Arrow is just horrible. I can't think of a single unqualified positive thing to say about it. Unlike Flash, it takes itself ungodly seriously. In the comics, the Green Arrow stopped being such a painful Batman ripoff in the '70s, when he developed a sense of humor and became a hippie Errol Flynn kind of dude. In the show... Jesus... five seasons in and they're still trying to do Dark Knight on a high school musical budget with horrendous actors.

Actually, that's exactly what it's like. It's like a high school theater production of Batman: The Dark Version! only th director couldn't afford the real script so they're working with cheap knockoff characters and a bunch of sidekicks. Oh my god it's painful. But I still watch it.

Legends of Tomorrow is ... possibly the worst thing I've ever seen. I didn't think it was possible to bring complete and utter shame to both DC Comics AND Doctor Who (which the show endlessly apes) at the same time, but Time Master Rip Hunter and his band of merry misfits has managed to do just that.

Don't watch this show. Legends of Tomorrow. Well, maybe if you're with your nerdy friends and you have a bag of weed and need something to laugh at.

Now, on the other end of the spectrum Marvel has done some great things, not just on their R-rated Netflix sex n' blood romps, but on basic cable as well with Agents of SHIELD. Starts out shitty, but it's really grown into a hell of a good show. Just the right amount of dumbass hokey crap and seriousness, with special effects that aren't half bad compared to what Legends of Tomorrow shits out.

I'm also enjoying Gotham, flawed as it is. In the same way The Flash reminds me of Donner's Superman, Gotham takes me back to Tim Burton's Batman. Yes, of course, it's been done better in the interim years by Chris Nolan, but Gotham is a campy delight, pulled right from Burton's vision.

Blah.

I don't watch much telly either actually and I am sure not into this new trend of endless tv soaps (only one I have ever watch, I mean like all seasons was Frasier, haha). I have never seen Game Of Thrones f. e., not even one episode and yeah it seems like endless entertainment. Westworld caught my attention while flickering through channels (I am not following it or anything). really good, but probably you need to be into SCI-FI to like it. is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. a lot of symbolism. i think main theme song is cover one of the Radiohead songs and it was nice to hear Nine Inch Nails cover of Something I Can Never Have in 5th episode in orgy scene.

by the way, speaking of tv soaps. I have seen one episode of High Maintenance (guy dealing grass in NY) and I would probably want to see some more in my free time and then I have seen three episodes of Mike Judge's show Sillicon Valley and would not mind to see more either.

Silicon Valley is excellent! Probably the funniest show out there. Great characters.

Yeah, I am NOT watching that.

I remember seeing some shots from the episode featuring that guy who played the Comedian in Watchmen as Keegan, swinging a barbed wire covered bat around and doing some real mustache-twirling cartoon villain bullshit.

Then he breaks skulls, if they follow the comic. And proceeds to break more and twirl more 'stache.

Ugh. No thank you. Sounds horrible. That guy's face creeps me out. Like an evil roided out Robert Downey Jr. with face puffiness. Gross. Needless to say it was an absolute pleasure watching him get hucked out a window in Watchmen. Maybe the only worthwhile part of the film.
