    The Arrowverse shows are ending their seasons soon so my viewing time will be freed up a bit for the summer. I’ve started watching Westworld (1st episode only so far) because I’ve been hearing good things about it from very different quarters.

    You need to be watching Legion. I am so glad I bought it (both seasons) because commercials would be a distraction from the story that the show weaves. I also plan on watching them both once S2 ends.

    I’ve also taken a look at the first episode of Santa Clarita Diet which has its moments enough for me to continue.

    AP Bio has its moments too, but I’ve fallen off it for a bit same with The Orville – maybe for the summer.

  2. Alex

    @Stingo. Yeah, I have finally succumbed to watching Westworld and season 1 was very enjoyable! Season 2, however, is so far failing to grab me. However, quite possibly, this may be not the right try for me to watch TV that needs to be paid 100% attention to.

  3. stingo

    @Alex Then I would suggest waiting to watch Legion too since even with full concentration, you might frequently be left with the “what did I just watch?” feeling.

    The Expanse has been cancelled by SyFy, but it looks like it will be shopped around to other networks.

    Yeah, I’ve seen 🙁 Not unexpected considering how it was treated before, but still sad. I hope they will find a new home.

    Sorry. When I posted that I was under the impression you might not have heard, but of course you had.

    Agreed. Like game studios closing, I hate to see cancellations. My current Lazarus pick is Lucifer since it was unceremoniously cancellled on a Season 3 cliffhanger.

    Oh, no worries, glad someone else cares about it happy

    Wow, that’s annoying about Lucifer! I quite liked it and was always meant to catch up with it. At least with The Expanse, the writers promised that the end of Season 3 could work as a proper ending as well. I hate when the cancel the show on a  cliffhanger.
