I enjoyed it, definitely. But to be great it's got to be something you want to go back and watch again and again (which it isn't).

I'd put it in a similar category to Westworld. Very good and definitely enjoy it but will never rewatch it.
What?!

Around episode 4 I worked out what was going on and went back and rewatched them again, and then I watched them all again after the last episode came out. It's excellent, even on subsequent viewings.

I thought what was going on was pretty apparent quite early on.

Watched the first two episodes last night.

I'm surprised they were convicted with the lack of hard evidence but I refuse to believe they had absolutely nothing to do with the murders. Their behaviour was far too strange. That guy was suggesting they were in shock and were unable to process the gravity of the situation but who acts like that and says those things right after something like? I don't really understand why they chose to hang around with 'Mr Big' - I get how entrapping them in that way works but if they felt they had nothing to hide, why would they need files/evidence to disappear?

Started Better Call Saul series 2 last night, really enjoyed it. Not sure why I've left it so long after watching S1 <scratch>

Their behaviour was very strange, especially the son. The other one I don’t think was so crazy since it wasn’t his family. It could be the case that he influenced the son to act a little crazier through his own actions. As for Mr Big I think once they fell in to that circle, which is probably easier than we think for people who can’t see any conventional work opportunities then it’s hard to get out. Although I am going off memory here/playing devil’s advocate a bit

The Good Place is really funny. It's a very weird show, but not just trying to be weird for the sake of it. And don't be put off by *that* British accent, like that for a reason.

<laugh> To be fair, that post is six years old. I just remember watching it around the time this site was founded and presumed I'd have ranted about it on here.

Highly recommend The Sinner, pretty decently filmed and the plot leaves you desperate to find out wtf is going on

Hoping it’s as good as the first season. Although I’m a little confused as to how they’re going to expand on it for a full season; it seemed like there were a couple of loose ends but not enough for a full second season. Fingers crossed though!

Aye confused as to how the second season will pan out as they obviously solved the main part of the story.

recently finished Altered Carbon would recommend, only criticism i'd say and I feel like this is true for the majority of TV shows of late they seem to try fit in as much plot details and reveals in the last two episodes and it can feel a little rushed.
