The Bureau is awesome. I'd put Gomorrah at #2, definitely the best thing I've seen in the last few years.

Sugar, starring Colin Farrell and directed by Fernando Meirelles is spectacular. Only 3 episodes in, and I love it. So beautifully shot and wonderfully written. And it's going places I wasn't expecting...and apparently, it goes somewhere else I haven't gotten to yet...

Yeah, then it all turns into garbage, sadly.


The PI remake has also turned out to be mostly awful thus far. I had hopes.

In honor of July the 4th I just started rewatching HBO's John Adams it been a while since I last watched it. Saw it when it first aired and the and rewatched maybe a year later but not since then. 2 episodes in and it's a frikken masterpiece! One of the absolute best things ever created for tv. And if you have never read the book do that asap.

It gets weird (I didn't mind), and I liked the movies within the story.

The Bureau is amazing.
If you liked The Bureau, you might like Fauda.

If you want another French show about the secret service, Au service de la France, A Very Secret Service is good. Opposite of The Bureau though - comedy set in the 60's and they are generally useless.

Sherlock is on Prime although you need to have the subscription to PBS to watch it. The first two seasons are great, but it tails off by the end. Still, though, one of my all time favorites.

We stumbled onto this because we like Elizabeth Moss. Hadn't heard of it.

Top of the Lake Just finished season 1. Pretty dark stuff. Every character has a secret. Farfetched. But we really liked it.

Just started watching Review, it's brilliant. Why did I wait so long to try this anyway?

i avoided the boys because it felt like it'd be more of the starwars/marvel tv that is just god awful imo (only made it 1-2 episodes into loki, arrow, wandavision, & star wars stuff) but because this thread keeps on saying good things i gave it a shot

much more in the line of the watchmen, where it's a gritty and dark world with real and adult problems

just finished pilot and love it, i'm sure it'll turn downhill a bit but i'm in

Yeah thats The Boy's whole thing. It constantly makes fun of Marvel. The Boys is great first 3 seasons. Season 4 airing now is a big step down though.

I'm enjoying Presumed Innocent....Jake G. always does a great job of being put-upon and paranoid. And Bill Camp is one of those character actors who always just raises the projects he's in by his incredible performances. The Looming Tower, Queen's Gambit, Joker, The Leftovers...he is always great and should be bigger star.
