1. The Crown s2
2. Ms Maisel when I watch it, hopefully
Twin Peaks
I'm watching this Korean crime drama Stranger right now. It's pretty good but a little let down by directing

Only half way but so enjoying Dark, may well surpass Handmaids Tale and Fargo. Honorable mention for Ozark, a few of Girl's episodes and Big Little Lies.

Weird. So far I’ve only watched season 1 of the leftovers but I absolutely loved it. Hard for me to believe it could get any better

No particular order within the sections...

One of the best things ever on tv
Twin Peaks

Really good to great
The Deuce
Bojack Horseman
Riverdale
Master Of None
Leftovers

Entertaining
Brooklyn Nine Nine
Ozark
Silicon Valley (not as funny as previous seasons)
Rick & Morty (better than previous seasons)
Better Call Saul
Luke Cage (great first half but mediocre second)
Back (really funny, but the finale was a bizarrely rushed muddle)

Middlin'
Girls
The Good Place

Bad tv
Game of Thrones
Suits (I dig its complete ridiculousness, but this last season was spinning its wheels)


Wanted to see but didn't get around to: Legion, Handmaid's Tale, Blue Planet II, Top of the Lake S2, Mindhunter. But I've never even heard of a lot of shows in this thread. I'm out of the loop.

The Young Pope pilot was pretty good IIRC. Don't see a throughline with Twin Peaks tho

There are similarities in terms of how it treats the narrative and general mood/tone. I just think most people who enjoy those shows will like it too.

i don't need to watch the OG twin peaks first in order to enjoy the return do i? would it somehow enhance the experience or does it matter?
