I've been watching Death Note recently. It's class.
This is one of those things that I’m reluctant to watch again because I don’t want to spoil it for myself as it just seemed perfect first time round. I love the concepts in it and how it plays out.

Yeah it's had a lot of thought go into it. The amount of double bluffs and triple bluffs :lol: I think it was superb and best in the first ten or so episodes (I'm on 18 now) but still good.

I think it’s been maybe 7-10 years since I watched it and it still makes me think about the morality of it, it’s just so good.

I recently watched Tokyo Ghoul which has 3 seasons on Netflix. 1 st season is really good, 2nd is decent 3rd I’m working my way through.

Anyone watched Boardwalk Empire? I tried it out a few years back and really couldn't get into it, I'm thinking of trying it again.
It's a great quality show but I totally agree it's kind of hard to get into, meaning what or which character should you grow into. Actually I had the same dilemma with Mad Men. Unbelievably good tv but hard to become attached to anything or anyone

Yeah that's disappointing, I really like growing to like characters in a show, or hate them too. But will still try at least 1 full season and take it from there.

Are you guys into spanish tv shows aswell ? I'm looking for something with that language
If you already watched the Netflix Narcos series, HBO latam Sr. Ávila (Mexico) and Prófugos (Chile) are good fun.

Also, Los simuladores (Argentina) is one of the best TV shows ever.

Started the Prodigal Son with Michael Sheen as a serial killer seems good so far and not sure why but i am getting a vibe it's similar to The Blacklist

Started watching Brave New World , it got fairly mixed reviews, the setting kind of reminds me of the film Logans Run. I'm 5 episodes in and find it watchable but not exactly awe inspiring however I will persist. The book is on my 'to read' list.

Well I finished both Deadwood and Rome, I finally got that off my years old backlog and loved them both, Rome was a bit easier on the watch with it being more dynamic than Deadwood but both are brilliant.

Working my way through Black Sails at the moment, on season two, very good so far.
