Yeah they usually wait for USA Network to air all episodes and then make it available on Netflix. Now that all episodes have been aired it should hopefully be available soon.

Finished watching season 3 of "better Call Saul" found it to be much better than previous seasons simply because its getting closer the Saul(including the name) that we know from Breaking Bad and also because some of the known characters are also introduced.

Started watching Season 2 of Shooter.

Have hardly seen anyone mentioning The Americans

It's underrated and probably one of the best TV series out there that you’re not watching. The plot revolves around a KGB couple spying on US Government during Cold War.

Highly recommended.

+1. Couldn't agree more!

I would rate it one among the top 5 current series!

Search & you will find many recommendations including mine

Although I must admit, after 3 seasons I have not yet picked up season 4 as its getting somewhat predictable to me.

I realized that the initial three episodes from Season 2 of Chance (2016) is out and binged it.

This dark thriller might interest all the House M.D fans out there. Hugh Laurie plays the character of Eldon Chance, a forensic neuropsychiatrist in San Francisco.

Remember seeing yours and Eddy's post. Just felt that this show needs some publicity and more people should watch

You should pick up where you left off. I must add that season 5 is slow paced with less action, more subplots compared to the earlier ones.

Mindhunter on Netflix. A physiological crime drama set in the 70's revolving around two FBI agents trying to understand the minds of killers. The Origin story of the term "Serial Killer"
5/5 in my view.

Recently started watching this Jude Law starring Tele-Series called "The Young Poe". Its about a young cardinal from America who gets anointed the Pope. Very dark and exciting.

Rating - 4/5

Watched the first episode of the The Walking Dead Season 8.

Seriously, I am only watching to see how it ends and who survive. Nothing new or great in the first episode.

Just finished Stranger Things 2. If like me you loved the first season, you’ll love this one too. Few pacing issues aside, overall a sequel that matches up to and at some points betters the original. And the soundtrack, awesome!!!

Also completed all 3 seasons of Black Mirror, an anthology of dystopian/satirical/dark science fiction stories. Some of the most affecting and thought provoking TV I have seen.

Watched Stranger Things 2 - Loved it, brilliant sequel to a great series. They have worked on developing existing characters more and introduced some new ones. Personally I couldn't find fault with anything.

Simply superb, don't miss out the Beyond Stranger Things series which does some cast interviews along with the Duffer Brothers & the Executive producer. Interesting behind the scenes information and some perspective on the thinking process on characters, actors, scenes etc which you may or may not have noticed. Even the soundtrack for this series is good
