Some thoughts on new shows I've watched, or have been watching lately...
Making a Murderer Saw this during Christmas break, arghhh, one of the most infuriating things I've seen. I think I hated humanity a little more after it ended.
Fear the Walking Dead Mehh, extreeeemely dull and bland. For all the flaws and faults of the original, it had its share of entertaining spikes. This one doesn't have that. Some nice moments here and there, but that's about it. I'm about to give up on it.
The Knick I've seen two episodes and loved it. Need to get on this soon.
Hell on Wheels Finished Season 1 and thought it was great. Haven't been able to catch up with S2 yet.
The Man in the High Castle A nice premise, overcome by mediocrity. Saw about half of the episodes and pretty much gave up. I will probably catch up with it later, but I'm not dying to right now. Dialogue is mostly cringe-inducing, the leads range from mediocre to plain bad. The only high point is Rufus Sewell. Meh.
As for other shows I'm still on... Better Call Saul remains one of the best things out there, while Vikings continues to improve with each season. Same with The Americans.
Oh, and a real shame that Manhattan was canceled. Great, underrated show.
