so when I was stuck in an airport on a 5 hour delay I got suckered into watching "The 100" on Netflix. I don't know why I keep getting sucked into these teen lead apocalypse shows..

anyone else seen this? Very weird it goes from Lost in Space, to Planet of the Apes, to The Matrix, back to Lost in Space?

I'm currently watching The Night Manager (on Amazon prime). I'm a sucker for a spy story.

not Netflix but Amazon - anyone watchting/watched The Man in the High Castle?  We're almost through with Season 1 now.  Pretty good!  Gave me a nightmare one night, about living under a Nazi government.

I seriously even downloaded the CW app on the fire stick so I could watch the current season!  There are some pretty crazy twists with it as the seasons go by.

My wife and I watched the first season when it came out.  I heard the other seasons got better, but we haven't gotten around to it.

Sense 8 is pretty much gay softcore porn and graphic depictions of live birth.

I watched a season expecting it to change, and it just got worse.

season 3 of "the hundred" kind of gave me a headache, with the dark setting and walking around back and forth like lost through the forest... I think I am just going to read the current season on Wikipedia and call it good..

Started watching Jessica Jones. Made it through about 2 episodes before giving it up. Mrs Dex is still watching it because David Tennant is in it (her favorite Doctor from Dr Who). Too much drama and not enough superhero for a "comic book" series for my liking. Goal was to re-watch the whole Marvel series (TV and movies) in order, but from what I've seen so far the various TV series aren't any good. 

Mrs Dex also really likes watching Outlander. She told me there's a fair amount of gratuitous nudity, so I sat through a random episode. Ended up being the only episode without the gratuitousness and instead had what can only be described as "sensual gay rape". Forget that.

Wanted to start watching Vikings, but because it's a not-safe-for-kids show, we never have time to watch it. 

At this point, our TV is basically used for watching movies and playing video games.

Are there any home-grown NZ shows out there or is it all essentially American TV?

A few NZ shows here, but most of it is American TV and we do get a few shows from Australia. Especially cable TV (ESPN, Discovery, History, etc). What's funny with watching American TV here is that the commercial breaks are different. Here they are less frequent and shorter when watching sporting events. Additionally, they're mostly just programming based (i.e. Bulls game Tuesday @ 6). Sometimes, there just aren't any breaks at all. I was watching a NASCAR race and when the US goes to commercial break, here they just keep showing the race except there's no commentary. Then about 3 minutes later the screen fills up with the "welcome back" crap and the commentary resumes.

Not a lot of live sporting events shown here (mostly because they're played several timezones away), so they'll do "recap" shows. For NASCAR, they'll condense the race into a 1hr highlight show with no commercials. Rugby is the same way. Games are normally 3hrs long but when televised they're only about an hour and only show the scoring drives.

I finally got around to watching Netflix's Stranger Things this weekend.  I went through Season 1 Episodes 1 through 7 (still have Episode 8 to watch tonight).  I enjoyed it.

Started watching Lovesick season 2, which is the renamed "Scrotal Recall".  We'll see if season 2 is as funny as season 1 was, but doesn't look like it so far.

I think stranger things sort of takes us back to our childhood a bit. back in the day of bikes and no cell phones and such!

I started watching the 3% but just cant keep interest in with it. (Does it get better?)  Same for the OA.

 

I got really bored and watched a few episodes of Part of 5 for some 90s nostalgia

Yes and yes, more so for Stranger Things than the OA, the latter of which culminates in an interpretive chicken dance.

When I realized that the 3% was dubbed into English I turned it off. Complete waste of time.

Again on Amazon, not Netflix, but we've been really enjoying The Expanse.  I think (?) you can just Tivo it on SciFi, but not entirely sure.  Fantastic effects, realistic physics, and the story eventually draws you in (the first couple of episodes weren't as engrossing as later ones).
