Honestly Brooklyn 99 is pretty progressive. The cast is very diverse and the character arcs develop the characters nicely as well. Of course, you need to enjoy Andy Samberg’s humor to want to watch this one (fortunately I find him pretty funny most of the time).

Just saw the first episode of The Outer Limits. I think Twilight Zone has some competition.

I’m finally catching up to the Alex Garland mini-series Devs. Only two episodes in so far but damn am I hooked. Captivating, mysterious sci-fi...loving it.
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???

The trailers for Devs looked very intriguing, but I never gave it a shot unfortunately. Alex Garland being attached also makes it more enticing, I didn't even realize he was involved. Will try again to work that into my watchlist at some point.

In TV related news for me, I am wrapping up The West Wing season 4, and I started Chernobyl last night which is as good as promised.

King of the Hill is a great show, but I still think this video is the best thing to come out of it:

just realized im getting a temporary official check off having watched
Nathan for You

btw that was the definition of pleasant time waster but perfectly skippable. a few episodes are fine for the series check
he or A. or Armo or any

I made a list of TV series from those nominated for TSZDT (there are few TV lists and I also deleted some series from this list which weren't horror enough coz this list is mostly for me): https://www.imdb.com/list/ls500363907/. Any recs? I haven't been able to get Attack on Titan to play on my TV so I'm finally just watching it on my PC and am halfway through season 3 and looking for something cool to watch afterwards. I'm leaning towards Monster, Paranoia Agent, Parasyte and Elfen Lied as they seem the most interesting to me plot-wise.

I've seen:

Liked/watching and liking:
American Horror Story
Twin Peaks
True Blood
The Terror
Dexter
The Twilight Zone
Hannibal
Supernatural
Stranger Things
Attack on Titan
Buffy
Black Mirror
The X Files
Death Note
Being Human
In the Flesh
Harper's Island
Are You Afraid of the Dark

Ok:
The Walking Dead
True Detective
Masters of Horror
Angel

Tried a couple eps and hated:
The Vampire Diaries
The League of Gentlemen

Paranoia Agent is very short (a short miniseries) so that's my first recommendation. Monster would be my second. I watched the subbed version of both. I watched a little of the dubbed English version of Monster and it wasn't doing it for me.

A lie ain't a 'side of the story.' It's just a lie.

Fear Itself is fun if you liked the Master of Horror anthology. I know you don't care too much about directors, but the people involved are generally quite decent horror directors.

I guess it comes down to the humour style? I feel like he accomplishes in what Borat could fail to do. Both of them do the most outlandish trolling possible, but Nathan's method seems a lot less exploitative.
