Blackish - ABC

On the other hand I absolutely LOVE Blackish. I LOL quite a bit through the show. All the characters are funny as hell. My far and away favorite characters are Laurence Fishburn as Andre's dad and Tracee Ellis Ross as Bow (Rainbow), Andre's wife. Just her face and eyes crack me up. Love this show.

Bloodline - Netflix

Decided to give this a try since it's getting rave reviews. It is good. A little slow for my tastes, but I imagine that's why it's being viewed for it's slow burn and each episode peels back a little more to make you come back.

about half way through the 13 episodes. Really liking it.

I'm only 3 episodes into Turn and it's damn good. I'm really impress with the production of the series and the story line is very engaging. I'm hooked for sure and what's great is that once I'm done with Season 1, I can jump into Season 2 as it airs (Season 2 premiered this past Monday I believe).

Natures Weirdiest Events Netflix BBC

A documentary series on weather, but mostly nature animals. It moves along at a pretty good pace. Most of the stuff is new to me. A couple of times there was gagging going on. Nature can be gross. 5 episodes at 1 hour was just enough for a mini-binge.

The Carbonaro Effect (tru TV)

I love this show anytime it's on, I just stop what I'm doing and watch. The guy (Michael Carbonaro)is doing amazing magic. It's combination of magic show and hidden camera. Incorporating amazing up close magic in every day activities, throwing the unsuspecting public off their feet. He really loves to f*ck with the people. He's gone before people have time to think what just happened.

Awesome, awesome show

The Fall 3 Stars Netflix

Giilian Anderson is determined detective to capture the very intelligent serial killer

On Netflix, this is 2 seasons (12 episodes) of immediately realizing who the serial killer is. Thus the rest of both seasons is being able to view the cat and mouse game from both perspectives.

Overall, I found The Fall to be entertaining. Gillian Anderson is way more subdued in her character than previous characters. Almost catatonic at times.

For me, I found the pacing suddenly change the last 4 episodes. As if there was really only material for one. And honestly they did drag this out. Like a movie, where you know everything and your just waiting for the players to catch up. Because essentially this is one long movie.

Netflix just announced a season three and I could see easily how they would continue this story line.

I probably won't watch it. I saw plenty.

Aquarius 3 Stars NBC

David Duchovnys new project of the detective tracking Charles Manson in the 1960's. It's kind of surprising to see NBC release all 12 episodes at once. Sign of the times I guess.

I really enjoyed it shooting out of the box. The music was phenomenal. The characters interesting.

Thing is by episode 4 I was losing interest. My wife enjoys it, despite it being a period show.

I will probably stop.

PS: I did hear a legit "f*ck" in the dialog. I wonder if the changed things for onDemand?

I watched the 2 hour premiere of Aquarius last week. There was enough there for me to want to see more. The very next day, Roku put up the Aquarius Channel. I clicked on it and was shocked to see that all of Season 1 was up for grabs. I thought this was a error on their part. Naturally I wanted to watch it all before it got pulled. I plowed through all 12 episodes in 3 days only to find out that it was designed that way. As for the series, it never really elevated beyond 3 Star level for me either. It's just a decent show. Not bad, but not great as it should be. With that said, if it comes back for another season, I'd tune in again.
