Anyone has watched Silicon Valley? Seems like a nice show about entrepreneurship and it's struggles.

This just came to Netflix:



What a show! If you love drama - especially legal drama - this one is for you. I normally don't binge on TV shows, but this one made me watch 5 episodes in two days.

Highly recommended.

Started watching "Penny Dreadful".

Ok at parts and bad at others. Watched 5 episodes now, hopefully it stabilizes a bit going ahead.

Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, Eva Green...

Have to start "Legion" as well.

Sigh, so much to watch and so little time :P

Its a nice series. Right blend of humour, sometimes black humour, and interesting insights into the startup world. Shows how startup problems, issues etc. are pretty much the same all over the world, even in the famed tech valley of the US. Watched Seasons 1 and 2. Good performances by the four lead protagonists. Also portrays how the VC world works.

Since I am in a profession which deals frequently with startups as well as VC investors, I find myself enjoying the series. Not sure how well received this would be by others, but I imagine it would be a interesting general watch as well. Recommended.

To see Riverdale high with a half-Hispanic Veronica Lodge, a black Principal Weatherbee, a young & seductive Miss Grundy etc. is an experience for me. Of course it was bound to happen at some point (injection of a main character-Kevin- that was openly gay was a bit of a shocker even in the relatively recent past but now it's de rigor).

The plot is interesting and the characters pretty decently sketched out, albeit in teenager-friendly style (I keep getting reminded of "I Know What You Did Last Summer" somehow). To be honest if it wasn't for the Archie comics connection, I wouldn't even be watching!

"This is Us" seems to be very worthy watch , Season 1 has started with a bang and is already rated close to 9.0 in IMDb . I finished watching close to 15 episodes on Hotstar and planning to watch again from start.

I noticed that, I Will start watching it from today. I have become a documentary buff especially ones with murder and investigations. If you're interested, i would suggest "Deadly Women", "Forensic Files", "FBI Files", "Cold Case Files" etc. etc.

Sorry if it has been mentioned before, but Billions is a great watch for anyone who likes corporate dramas. A great show with a great way to show competition in the real world!

Don't forget to add Mayday/Aircrash Investigations to the list. Some of the investigations are quite interesting while I must admit there are some episodes where you feel some logic just doesn't add up. But overall a great watch and I have been a fan and repeat customer from as long as I remember. My favourite among them is that of the British Airways flight 9: Falling from the sky. Never get tired of watching it.

Medical Detectives too is quite interesting BTW.

Any TV show you would rate in the same league of Game of Thrones? Looking forward to start watching a new show to binge upon.

Thumbs up Re: The Worricker Trilogy

On Amazon Video 'The Worricker Trilogy' is worth a watch!

Good script and nice cast also. Mix of American and British TV actors.
Nice locales. It's kind of espionage drama!

After years of seeing pop-culture references to Doctor Who, I'm happy to be finally watching it on TV. And I can see why it has won the accolades it has - the story, casting, direction and acting are all phenomenal and highly entertaining.

Today, I had the good fortune of seeing what I can only describe as one of the best episodes I've ever seen - not just in this programme, but quite possibly among all TV shows. The episode is from the 3rd series and is titled Blink.

I have always been of the opinion that it is incredibly difficult to do character development and a story in a single episode of a TV show. And this is one of those rare episodes that does manage this feat.

In a single episode of just 45 minutes, it filled me with terror, made me laugh at its humour and cry at a touching sub-story, thrilled me with tension and made me happy for its joyous resolution of its characters. It took me through a whole range of emotions that had me muttering "wow!" 5-10 minutes after the episode ended, savouring how intricately the story was woven, and how well it was directed and acted.

There have been only a few episodes that have left a comparable impact on me, such as the Firefly episode Out of Gas, and the pilot of Fargo.

"Wow!"
