I like to keep a cheesy sci-fi show on the go at all times, and now it's "Cleopatra 2525". It's lots of fun.

I'm just overwhelmed by the choice. There's too much entertainment, I think. It's like, I found "Future Man" and really liked it, and it's a Hulu original? And all the streaming services have multiple shows, and there's networks and cable...I don't have a family and I can't even come close to keeping up.

I think the next season of Future Man comes out pretty soon and I'm really looking forward to it!

I've been appreciating the late seasons of some old faves lately. Not great, but more worthwhile than I remembered:

The cold opens in season 8 of The Office are really great.

Keith David in Season 6 of Community is a revelation. Criminally underused comedically.

So True Detective is back with season 3. Did season 2 kill everyone's desire for this new season? I think I'll at least give it a go, but if it's too full of [expletive] (and I expect it will be), I'm not seeing this thing through.

I watched a few episodes of 'Nailed It' after reading tlombard's recommendation. Thought it was fresh and fun to watch. Had some good laughs. Nicole Byer is indeed a fantastic host.

they did 2 episodes for some reason last night for the season 3 premier...and they were pretty freaking good IMO.

I don't think season 2 was awful...I've def watched way worse series. I think the bar was just set so high after season 1, that anything they did in season 2 would be a let down in comparison.

that being said, the 2 episodes last night for season 3 were terrific. time will tell how the season will stack up against season 1 overall, but it's off to a great start.

(HBO really never advertised the upcoming season for some reason...GOT crap is all over the place, and HBO seemingly has a new teaser every week it seems. up until a week or 2 before TD season 3 premiered, I didn't recall seeing anything from HBO on TD season 3)

Season 1 was great, Season 2 was an irony masterpiece, and I am excited and optimistic for Season 3.

Season 3 is going to be terrific. I only watched Episode 1 last night, but the magic is back.

It's gonna be hard to top Season 1 (that was some of the best TV i've witnessed), and after the debacle that was Season 2, my expectations were low, but i'm convinced Nick is back on his bullsh*t.

I dunno who this Ali guy is, but he's damn good in this and stephen dorf does a nice job as a gruff, reckless sidekick.

TRue Detective is back baby !!!

Late to the party, but I can now confirm Atlanta is amazing.
