    my wife and I just started watching Season 3, and there are plenty of "WTF? This is on History Channel?" moments.
    If it gets worse, I'm not going to waste time on Season 4

    I yelled at my tv after the second season and swore I'd never watch again.

    About what, specifically? Offered staying in Gilead forever?

    People on reddit keep joking that she's never going to leave the Waterford house lol

    I wasn't crazy about Offred with her flip-flop personality. All she talks about is getting out and when she does, she messes it all up.

    Idk, I get it in a sense. She can get one kid out safely. Once she leaves, she has no chance of getting Hannah out save for a military invasion of Gilead.

    I was devastated when she didn't make it out in episode 3 or 4 (the plane scene), but again, it makes sense.

    The show creators have talked about doing 10 seasons. Having her escape would kinda make that impossible.

    Hopefully we see Fred and Serena die next season doe.

    Not sure if mentioned yet, but Sharp Objects on HBO was pretty damn good.

    I haven't seen the finale yet, I will eventually. Pretty compelling considering I only read a smidge of the book. Amy Adams is awesome.

    I think you'll like it. I was thinking it was pretty lame for a finale, then I had a WTF moment.

    They should do another season of the wire. Be interesting to see a season with modern technology etc

    Bad idea. The Wire was the best series ever by far but it was already slipping in the last season. And even then they managed to wrap everything in one of the most perfect finales one could come up with. it must be left untouched and be studied by the next generations.

    new technologies would've changed the whole dynamics of the series but then it should be a new show.

    Westworld ftw .
    It's just awesome on so many levels.
    Acting.
    Production value.
    Cinematography.
    Storyline.
    It ended perfectly in 2 seasons.
    With some great epic moments.
    Just awesome

    Better call Saul is very good also.

    Anyone watch future man?

    It seems like a fun goofy show so far.

    Basically it's about some guy who plays video games. He completes this one game and it turns out it was a recruitment tool sent back in time by the resistance. They come back and there's lots of bad language, violence and silly humour. It's kinda like Scott pilgrim meets Tarantino or some shit. Lots of good recurring jokes that humor me too
