I find it hilarious that I know more about american TV than WW :P.

This is not a slam by the way, I get obsessive about stuff and American TV happens to be one of those things. But I thought "network TV" was a concept everybody would be familiar with in the US : if it's not then all this talk about it being dead really is true !

I never watch "network" shows besides Hannibal. And now I've been watching Gotham.

Well, and those that are reaired on other stations.  Like, I watch reruns of Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, American Dad, whatever on TBS and/or Adult Swim.

Speaking of which, how unbelievably bad is TBBT these days? I can't believe I'm still watching it. Parsons still delivers a couple of great one liners an episode, but all in all it's so so bad.

I know the feeling. I gave up on it in season 5 I think ? But I stuck with stuff like Dexter or HIMYM till the end just because of inertia.

Anyone on The Blacklist?

Our normal rotation is Modern Family, Blacklist, Brooklyn 99, Pawn Stars, Wonderland (Australian evening soap).

I need to get SHIELD going again, I watched all of S1.  I want to watch Madam Secretary, but have only seen the pilot.

Anyone watching Masters of Sex? I think I watch it for the historical context while my wife watches it for the smut.

I am, kinda. I actually haven't finished the first season yet. It's very good but it makes Mad Men look eventful and exciting.

Fish just might be the worst acted character of all time? It's really getting unbearable.

Liked the episode other than that, though.

Haha, yeah.  The kid playing Bruce is maybe a little weak.  But, I like that he's becoming a detective.  I mean, Batman is supposed to be a detective, but we don't really ever see a whole lot of that.  (Maybe a bit in the movies, but it's more him beating people up.)

I'm watching Grimm.

I think the trope I hate the most in TV and film is visible passwords.  Man, no security system is going to leave the password completely readable for anybody who happens to be looking at the screen.  If you must do that for the plot, at least make it something plausible.  Have the password be written down on a sticky note or in a notebook or something, because there are actually people who do that.

Walking Dead, great as usual. 
Gracepoint... eh, getting somewhat more interesting.  Still seems to fall short of engaging its audience, though.  Dude that plays the father is TERRIBLE.  He delivers his lines as if he's struggling to remember them. 
American Horror Story... we get it, the Carnival is out in the fields.  There are crickets, and you'll always hear crickets in the background.  But they're not in the background.  They're in the foreground.  Dialogue is in the background.  What's the purpose of this?
Gotham... I hope it gets better.

That's all I'm really watching at the moment~.  Walking Dead is what I look forward too.  Can't wait for HBO shows to come back en force (True Detective, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Leftovers).  Hopefully Hannibal will start up in the winter.  I'm hoping The Strain gets a lot stronger in season 2.  Season 1 was watchable, but should have been much better.

The Knick looked really interesting, but I only get Cinemax at random times (not sure if it's a mistake or a promotion thing).  I saw some of some episodes.

As I'm about to catch up watching all of Archer, I'm ready for 6th season. While the earlier season were probably more funny, I just love the character too much to not keep watching. So many quotable lines from the show. Anyone else watch Archer/are eager for the next season?

I liked the new Gotham episode. Of course they'd enter the killers lair without backup despite what happened 10 years ago, but other than that, it was pretty good. No Fish scenes a good Gotham episode make.

Gordon's wife, that cop chick. CRINGE.  Worst.  Actors.  Ever.

Also, why would the arrest Gordon without a body?  The first thing they should be doing is searching the river for a body.  Which they should have done way back in the beginning.  No way they'll make a murder case with only some random homeless guy's testimony.  I don't usually mind these sort of things in shows, but the actual arrest of Gordon was just silly.

Other than that, though, I agree it's getting better.

Netflix-only fan of the show here. One of these days they'll put Season 5 up.

My netflix has season 5 I think? Canadian netflix though so it may be different.

So apparently they're making a TV show of 12 Monkeys: IMDB Link.  Seems odd to me, but maybe it'll be cool.

Also, I liked this weeks American Horror Story much better.

Yes. Hands-down the funniest show.  I hope new episodes start soon.

Yeah, I liked American Horror Story this week. Very sad.

And an interesting take in the passing of the crown. The way they played up Twisty the Clown, it seemed like he'd be an ongoing villain for the entire season. His exit was surprising, which made the story interesting.

But if you follow the ongoing interviews out there then you know that we have not seen the last of Twisty at all.

I have not, but I also know that people don't necessary stay gone in AHS.

Death might only be a stumbling block.

Indeed.

I'm higher on this show than I've ever been. Yes, the gunfight sucked and Barbara is one of the most annoying characters in any show ever, but Penguin is just so good. I love his chemistry with Falcone, very excited to see what's next!
