New season of True Detective is pretty boring for now and they got 4 main heroes which is weird. Hope they'll bring more action soon.

Also started watching Downton Abbey and I feel like my granny watching Brazilian show, cheering for kisses and stuff. Just finished first season.
Things are serius dont underestimate us

Would be a good series but I hate the infantile Marvel/DC superhero morality, "let's work hard to beat up bad guys, oh yay it worked" and in the next season they're back up again and the last episode was pointless. Not to mention the fact that those people then go on to kill others. Makes it hard to care about the plot. Same reason Batman is gay. Also the early DD episodes repeat the same formula with a long-ass kungfu style fight at the end where DD prevails by the skin of his teeth. I'd also prefer if the action was more like Bourne (or the Batman trilogy), less like a Jackie Chan movie.

At least the fights seem realistic unlike batman and the likes.

Daredevil gets hurt and he starts getting tired, enemies don't go down in 1 hit but keep on rising from the floor.

That makes the combat 100x better than batman will ever be.

What, it's the exact opposite. Real fights don't last five minutes with people shrugging off damage and coming at you again and again. They take closer to seconds -- especially if even one of the participants knows what he's doing (as opposed to two drunks hug fighting).

Started True Detective Season 2. Don't like it. Only somewhat interesting character is Vince Vaughn's, rest are cliché garbage (alcoholic bad cop cuz tuff lyfe).

Also, seen Mr. Robot pilot. Can't wait for more. Flashes of brilliance in that pilot, could be on par with True Detective Season One and Breaking Bad, if they keep the bar high.

Orange is the new black - very good, but expected little bit more after hype
Halt and Catch fire - nice overlooked retro, really like it

I'm finally watching Sopranos, HBO's first big one. Really like it, great characters and acting. And it's also interesting because you can really watch the modern TV being born, first season aired 16 Years ago...
If you haven't watched it I can recommend 'OZ' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oz_%28TV_series%29), which HBO released a few years prior, 'the first one-hour dramatic television series to be produced by the premium cable network HBO'. The first I saw from HBO and still one of the best.

Watched the 1st episode of Killjoys, was interesting. Like a mix of firefly and cowboy bebop.

..

But lyfe is tuff. I know you cant sense it, but the years do take an inevitable toll on all of us. An alcoholic bad cop is more of an actual relatable thing, than just a cliche really. But the characters were basically walking cliches yeah.

Watched the second episode aswell. Overall I agree thou. But it wasnt the cliches that killed it imo. Its the insane amount of artsy bullcrap scenes to fill the timer and close to 0 actual things happening. The plot is kinda moving in a very obvious paste and speeds up a bit whenever the shows creators feel like that's enough of artsy scenes and landscape shots for now. First season was better, I can already see it.

Been watching the first season of "halt and catch fire" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2543312/

It is a nice theme , early days of personal computers. Takes you thru the early years in a fictional , but somewhat realistic historical setting.

Ofc mixed in some of the always present personal conflicts, love dramas and the usual nonsense :D
