I tend to really enjoy the majority of HBO shows and I was really looking forward to this one.

I was slightly put off by some comments about the pacing, but I really enjoy it. If you enjoyed Boardwalk empire like myself you will really enjoy this and also recognise some familiar faces

This reboot or imagining differs a little from the original series as it feels like prequel to the original series. I think its loosely based on the books rather than the series.

The look and style is fantastic and Matthew Rhys is great in the role of a of Perry Mason.
I really hope more seasons will be commissioned as there is plenty of stories and directions it can go.

I like this too. It's much better than it ought to be. Good production values and well written.

Couple of newbies:

Soulmates is set in the near future where they've discovered the 'soul gene' (or something) & can match you up with your perfect soulmate. What does this mean for people in happy relationships? What do you think?

Enjoyed the first episode & was intrigued to see where it was going, but turns out it's an anthology show & each episode features a different bunch of people running into relationship trouble. It's all very Black Mirror & I'm sure I've seen the central premise somewhere before. The production is quite odd too. It seems to be set in America, but it's shot in Spain & features a bunch of British actors, half of them trying US accents.


Next features John Slattery as a Bill Gates-style tech genius hunting down a rogue Artificial Intelligence that has escaped out into the world from his old company with the aid of FBI agent Fernanda Andrade. The leads are both very watchable & the AI is suitably creepy, but again it all feels very familiar (the movie Eagle Eye comes to mind) & it's hard to see how they can drag it out for a whole season, let alone multiples.

Well yeah Black Mirror literally had an episode about perfect relationship matches being wrong.

Not particularly well thought of I think. Marvel dropped it like a stone.

on ep 3 now. not bad, but not great. the fact that there were so few comments on reddit is really odd though. i'm guessing they didn't bother to promote this one
