I'm on Season 5 of Son's of Anarchy.  Pretty intense so far.  I hear the series starts to go down hill at some point but I haven't seen that yet.

 

Iron Fist was entertaining in my opinion.  I'm not sure why it was getting all of the negative reviews.

I'm almost done with Season 1 of Man in the High Castle.

 

There's a lot of running around and doing things, but not much actual plot.  It's a weird show.  Does Season Two get better?

 

I haven't watched the 2nd season, but you're not wrong about Season 1. Lots of 'stuff" but very little plot. This might be a case of having minimal source material (the book is just over 200 pgs) and just trying to drag it out a$ long a$ po$$ible.

Just started Veep (by myself) and True Detective (to watch with the fiancée).
 
Really enjoying both so far, but I've heard from just about everyone that season two of True Detective is crap.

Season two was so bad.  I still don't know what happened.
Story, acting, screenplay, all of the above?  What sucked the most?
I think a lot of it is that expectations are so high after such an awesome 1st season. I would say it's mainly story and casting where it fell short for me. I found it difficult to be too interested or invested in the characters. I will say Vince Vaughn did a much better job in a drama role than I expected from him. But I just can't see him without seeing his Dodgeball character.

If you go into it thinking it's going to really suck, it might seem pretty decent.

I've started that series 3 different times and haven't made it past ep 2 or 3. I like the premise and could even handle preposterous, but it just hasn't drawn me in yet. As soon as I'm done with Breaking Bad I am going to force myself through MIHC. I really figured with that alternate future storyline it would have to be very entertaining.

I'm down to the last episode of Breaking Bad tonight.  I had forgotten how dark it got at the end.  But I loved the last episode when series finished up a couple years back.  I like how they mixed the song Felina into the last episode.  I remember hearing Felina on KRVN when I was a kid.  :lol:

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

I'm at about s3 ep4 (Mike just showed up for first time within the last couple episodes) so I've got a ways to go.
Yeah, they did I good job with the music in the series. A couple of my favorites were Crystal Blue Persuasion and Baby Blue. Also got a kick out of the Latin group (Mariachis??) singing about Heisenberg.

I put True Detective on hold because season 4 of Sherlock came out on Netflix and that's one of my favorite shows.  S4:E1 was really good.

I'm finished for entire SOA episodes.  Excellent series .... almost as good as BB IMO.  The best episode was Papa's Goods (final episode)

 

I'm on Season 5 of Son's of Anarchy.  Pretty intense so far.  I hear the series starts to go down hill at some point but I haven't seen that yet.

 

Iron Fist was entertaining in my opinion.  I'm not sure why it was getting all of the negative reviews.

 

Downfall but slightly.  Myself, too many killings with no real purpose especially seasons 4 and 5.  And starting to dislike Gemma's bitchy and smart ass attitude  (Peggy Bundy !)

 

Iron Fist?  It's okay.  I agree, didn't make sense negative reviews.  Fist and better than Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.

Sense8 season 2 just came out and it's just as good as season 1 IMO. Great solid cast and chemistry between the core characters and the premise really dope too.

I'm interested in your thoughts after you finish season 4.

Through episodes one and two.  I don't want to rush to judgement on it (perhaps ep. 3 will blow me away) but I've been somewhat disappointed so far, but I can't quite put my finger on why.  It somehow all seems a bit more haphazard or chaotic, but more-so in a way that suggests laziness rather than intent.

Not so much that it goes downhill as much as it goes over the top. If you're through 5 and you're still into it, you're fine. I thought it started to improve a bit in season 6.

The only thing that didn't do much for me was the Ireland stuff.
