What TV Shows You are watching?

What are your top shows at the moment? I am always on the lookout for new TV stuff to watch! Anyway here a some of mine, feel free to add as many as you want!

Stranger Things. As they release the new seasons episodes in one go, I have been binge watching the recent one. It is a great 80's set Sci-Fi horror show.

The Orville. A funny Sci-Fi comedy show influenced by star trek. 

Chicago P.D. A gritty good quality police drama about detectives in America. It stands out over various CSI related series with better character development.

The Flash. Sorry if this is post is becoming a bit of a Sci-Fi overload, but The Flash surprised me in being the best comic book adapted series I have ever seen and has great characters and the quality of the episodes never drops. You don't have to like comics to enjoy this!

    Stranger Things is definitely one of my favourites at the moment too, just finished watching S3 myself!
    I also just finished Sharp Objects, a sort of mystery-thriller based on a book, which was completely gripping.
    Lastly one show I loved first time round and have just started re-watching is Yonderland, a ridiculous family comedy show that gets funnier every time I watch it.

    just discovered TED on YOU TUBE.....it`s a platform for speakers about a huge variety of subjects. Watched a few last night. They were about;

    1. a Hospice doctor who had lost 3 limbs in a student prank...climbed on top of an electric train for fun.....
    2.a woman who had escaped a cult
    3. a comedian geek and scam emails
    4.the mother of Columbine shootings

    All very interesting!

    TED is really interesting! I have been watching stuff on that for a long time.

    Downton Abbey
    Anything historical is good. I enjoy costume dramas.

    Speaking of historical has anyone seen  the Chernobyl series that came out not long ago? It was not always easy to watch, but was a very good series.

    Yeah, with Game of Thrones I only started watching it after a few years of it starting and there is always so much other stuff to watch!

    The first couple of seasons of Game of Thrones were great, but the more they deviated from the books the worse they got. Controversial opinion perhaps, but there's better stuff out there!

    @Adrian_Scope I never read the books, but I will say that the quality of the TV show has started to drop somewhat and I still have some way to go.

    On the subject of fantasy shows, they are making a Lord of the Rings TV series for Amazon. I think with the epic in scale films still in recent memory, I am not sure if the additional stuff from the books will be enough to stir my interest. What does everyone else think?
