I guess we will see a lot more different adaptions now that they lost the Marvel rights.

Cool they have the rights to Mark Millar's stuff and I'm looking forward to what happens with that.

tried watching Man in the high tower season 2, as S1 was good, watch ep 1, but I couldn't get into it. Cool source material, but seemed slow, I guess I don't care anymore.

I thought it was pretty good. I'm really interested to find out a lot of different things so it did a good job of pulling me in.

Dirty John

I kind of expected the finale to be a bit more crazy but this was a pretty good watch.

Just starting the storyline where Cordelia is pregnant. If I remember right, I hated this storyline.

Ok. I'm not sure I'll ever get back into the show. I hate it when some shows go on and on. When you think eventually the heroes have to come up against the main villain and that will be the end. I would have to watch like 4 or 5 seasons of Supernatural and I don't think I'm up for that.

I just checked wiki and I think I stopped watching at Season 7. They are on Season 14 now. I would be surprised if any of those seasons are as good as the two seasons of Counterpart. It's not horror though. Counterpart was just cancelled but it was two really good seasons.

I only watched the episode with JDM. Now I'll go back to ignoring the show. I agree, it's gone on too long. It should have ended 5-6 seasons ago. There's such a thing as "jumping the shark", and they've done it a few times over.

I've got 10 seasons of supernatural I bought super cheap on Bluray on a sale, I think about $10AUD (er...I'm guessing about $8USD) each.
I've always thought it looked like a decent show. I've seen the first couple of episodes and yeah, seems watchable. Kind of like a better quality "Grimm".
I'm just kind of waiting on watching it. Too much stuff.
Though yeah I will say - it's run for a hell of a long time now. It's hard to believe that even for the die hard fans this wouldn't have fallen into the "background noise/time killer" category by now.

Right now I'm watching on netflix with my sweet girls, a cartoon called "The Dragon Prince". Season 2 just came out.
I've been quite surprised by the quality of the animated series that have come out on netlflix, I really have - and I've found this one to be one of the most watchable.
It's funny, heartfelt, exciting, colourful...Quite a solid mythos/back story. Mystery and intrigue, a huge division/conflict between two races, and a possibility of peace that hangs in the balance. Good range of characters ranging from heroic to gray area to outright villainous...and a really nice animation style.
I'd recommend this, for adults and kids alike.


I'd also recommend "the hollow".

Thats a good deal for Supernatural. Only the first 5 seasons are watchable though. It gets really ridiculous after that
