This looks soooooo much better than season ten.  I didn't even realize they were making a new season!

Watched the pilot for The Mayor. Not sure just yet, but right now it's looking like a pass. Need another episode to be sure.

I'm trying to get into season five of The Americans but I sort of feel like it's run its course and is treading water a bit. Glad next season will be the last. I wish dramas knew you generally shouldn't go past five seasons.

I only saw the first ep so far, but it didn't feel like it missed a step. The jump in picture quality for six years worth of technology advances was a bit jarring initially though :lol:

I liked season five but more often than not it did feel like the writers were told this was the penultimate season and so they decided to stretch out a season over two.

Already removed two new shows from my DVR recording list: Seal Team and The Mayor.

Seal Team I removed from my DVR after the first episode. The team leader going to therapy was a boring part of the whole thing, and as much as I like David Boreanaz (the only reason I gave the show a chance), The Brave is miles better. The reviews I've heard for Valor haven't been good, but I didn't plan to give it a try, anyway.

The first episode of The Mayor had a couple of laughs, but that was it. The second one I barely got halfway through before deciding it was crap. At least they made it obvious why his career was going nowhere as a rapper: the songs they used in the two episodes sucked.

I dug the first couple of episodes of The Good Place. Will definitely be watching it all. Surprised to find Chidi is my favourite character and not the ones played by Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.

Guys! The new Ducktales started out fun but I'm getting annoyed by the fact that Webby seems to be the lead character. Almost no Scrooge.

I kinda did like the last episode with the throwback to stuff from an old video tape I used to watch all the time with a particular DuckTales episode.

I absolutely love the regular characters without the established major resumes. Great performances all around.

I did a little double take when I clicked Jameela Jamil was in it.

I watched the first episode of Mindhunters on Netflix and holy fuck - it has some of the best dialogue that I have ever seen in a show.

That's weird because one of the complaints I've heard about Mindhunters was about the dialogue. I fully intend to watch the rest, but I turned it off during the bar scene in the first episode because it was so wooden.

All caught up on The Good Place...

Spoiler

Saw all the twists coming, still great. Janet is the favourite now. Here is my favourite picture of Janet:

Yeah, I'm done with Season 1 now. Going to have to find somewhere to watch season 2 when it finishes.

As for your spoiler about it..

Same here. It became pretty obvious as we got into the latter episodes that something wasn't quite right, and the only thing I could think was "maybe it's not really the good place?" I didn't think at all that it was actually The Bad Place, but I knew something was way off.

Yeah actually that's my one complaint - I really have zero cares in the world for anything that has to do with him and his (eventual) girlfriend. I understand the purpose is to show how wooden and not really 'with it' that he is, and also to play off her sociology as a background eventually - but I don't think I've seen anyone complain about things outside of that. Later in that episode it really picks up and episode 2 with Ed Kemper really blew me away, because the portrayal of Kemper is VERY spot on.
