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:
