    Started watching Luke Cage season 2. Couldn't finish the season, even though it's better than post cotton mouth s1, it's still fucking horrible. Starts of good, continues better then at around episode 8 they hit a brick wall. They have 13 episodes to film and have to fill that with shitty filler dialog. I just couldn't stomach another minute of pointless exposition.

    Has anyone given this a try? I love Michael C. Hall but I don't want to waste my time. I'm in desperate need of something to watch.

    HALO Live-Action TV Series a Go at Showtime with Kyle Killen

    [​IMG]

    After more than four years sitting in development, a Halo TV series based on the video game franchise has officially been given the green light by Showtime.

    The premium cable network announced Thursday that it has picked up 10 episodes of the live-action scripted drama series, with Kyle Killen (Awake) set to serve as exec producer, writer and showrunner. Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will direct multiple episodes of the series and serve as an exec producer.

    The drama is produced by Showtime and Microsoft/343 Industries and counts Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television among its producers. Production on Halo will begin in early 2019.

    Halo will be executive produced by Killen, Wyatt, Scott Pennington and Amblin TV's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. The series will be distributed globally by Showtime corporate sibling CBS Studios International.

    The Halo TV series was first unveiled in 2014, with Xbox Entertainment Studios nearing the deal to develop the take on its wildly popular video game. At the time, the plan called for the series to bow first on Showtime before moving to Xbox consoles. It's unclear if that is still in the cards.

    To date, the Halo video game franchise has sold more than 77 million copies worldwide and grossed more than $5 billion in sales. The Showtime series will take place in the same universe that launched in 2001 and will dramatize an epic 26th century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future, Showtime said.

    For his part, Killen's credits include Lone Star, Mind Games and the feature The Beaver. Wyatt's credits include the upcoming sci-fi feature Captive State, Fox's The Exorcist and Turn.

    Im on episode 5 right now.
    I'm enjoying it. I think it's worth a watch, especially if you're just looking for something to watch to pass the time. I wouldnt say it is MUST-SEE TV, but it's better than average so far.

    Anyone watch Seven Seconds?

    Jesus. You really gotta sit down and watch this show. No casual watching on this one. It's quite an emotional show, and it felt 'real'...not something super hammed up just to pull at the heart strings. It was just a sad story that i could see happening.
    Regina King is great as the grieving mother. I think she's a really underrated actress.

    I didn’t even realize it wasn’t picked back up.

    Hope Netflix doesn’t mess it up

    he was a ladies man in bad moms but I agree that this is bad casting. if they wanted to go the Latino actor route there are a lot more actors that could have been closer to a tom selleck.

    I couldn't even finish this current season of unbreakable kimmy Schmidt I think I watched 3 episodes it dropped off in quality by a lot seems like the writers and tina fey didn't care as much anymore she seems busy with other things. the old lady I forget her characters name was also really annoying this season.

    Super butthurt that Taken got cancelled, season 2 was fun and rebooting the team made the show enjoyable. They had some good action scenes for a tv show and Clive Standen did a nice job as Mills.

    Slowly catching up on the regular shows that I missed.

    GLOW season 2 was great. Funny, superb writing and a great cast of characters and performances. Marc Maron is a natural fit to play Stan Lee in a biopic.

    LUKE CAGE season 2 - Finished episode one. Draaaaging. Kept on fast forwarding a lot of stuff. I'll probably still watch the rest of the episodes but I'm just going to fast forward and skip a lot of the dull crap.
