The only series I've watched all the way through more than once is Corner Gas, and Cheers. Corner Gas is so wholesome, I had no idea the entire series was up on YT by its very creators.

Used to catch that late night here in the U.S.   Quirky, can't stop watching kind of thing.

Just binged season 3 of Travelers on Netflix. Intelligent sci fi. Well worth a look if you haven’t!

Finished Travelers S3 up earlier today.
I was blown away by S1 when it came out and couldn't wait to see S2.
But I was strongly disappointed in S2 and even much more with S3.

I like a continuing story arc where each episode builds off the previous. Travelers started to intersperse some irrelevant episodes in S2 and more so in S3 (Naomi as an example).
What they did with Hall's character I thought would have been better way to deal with David.

Travelers begun as a serialized show but then slowly metastasized into a hybrid of serial/procedural.
The last two seasons of Travelers really felt like a regular cable tv show. Despite the allowance of vulgarity, which I appreciate  :P

The last time I watched X-Files I followed along a guide that only included episodes that were important to the X-Files mythology and it was great.
I really enjoyed watching X-Files that way and it saved some time.  http://x-files.wikia.com/wiki/Mythology

Next time I go to rewatch the Travelers series I hope there will be a list of mythology episodes so I can skip the fluff and the useless sprinkles on a donut type episodes ;D

It is such a great concept for a sci-fi show, really fucking great, and I even enjoy most of the actors but I thought season 1 was the best of them all.
Of course, with all that said, I will watch season 4 if it comes out because anything with sci-fi gets my attention. But I would not be surprised if it got cancelled.

I disliked Jeff's character the whole series hehe.

Now I have to decide what to watch next. 'Nightflyers' which is a sci-fi but has sub par ratings and also George R.R. Martin has writing credits for all 10 episodes or 'The Haunting of Hill House'.

Also waiting patiently for season 4 of 'The Expanse'.

By the way, Origin, is the best new sci-fi show I've seen in 2018. Character backgrounds are so well done.
The show 'Counterpart''s first season started in Dec 2017 or I probably would have said that one.

Origin's first 2 episodes can be watched on Youtube for free. Since it was Youtube/GOOGLE production.

If you've watched Lost, don't binge-rewatch it w/o preparation c/o me.  If you've never watched it, watch it once, then have me prep you to watch it again.  Unless you're brilliant at solving fiction mysteries and have a lot of background in them, or knew Damon Lindelof and had bugged the room at his father's place when we had certain conversations around the turn of the century, your understanding of the show will be completely, and hilariously, different the 2nd time.  Prepare for a lot of homework, though.

Never watch one episode of Lost, all I know is that everybody felt ripped off by the way it ended. Also that each season progressively got worse.. that. is what I've heard

@paladin1991 Quirky would be the word. That series is a great binge when you're down with a monster cold for a few days. My wife bought me the box set a few years ago just before I got sick so I know what I'm talkin' about ;D

It was an audience-solvable mystery, except the audience was never told it was a mystery.  Things were presented as sci-fi or fantasy, but if you figure out what was going on you realize that was all hocus-pocus.

Suppose someone put on Hamlet leaving out the dialog between Hamlet and his father's ghost.  All you'd see is Hamlet behaving strangely for a reason never made explicit.  Would you be able to infer, from the clues, that Claudius had murdered Hamlet's father?  The clues on Lost were with that aim iin mind.  There was no denouement, which everyone had expected, at the end; the end was of no special importance in solving Lost.  In fact the entire final season had relatively few clues in it.

I'm overdue for another entry in this series, but you can get a very good idea of it from this.

Grace and Frankie ...

Don’t know how I missed this ... just got turned on to it Sunday .... watched Season 1 on Monday evening and Season 2 on Tuesday evening when I got home ... I’m on Season 3 ....
a brand new Season 5 starting in January!

For as long as they can recall, Grace and Frankie have been rivals. Their one-upmanship comes crashing to a halt, however, when they learn that their husbands have fallen in love with each other and want to get married. As everything around the ladies is coming apart, the only thing they can really rely on is each other. This Netflix original re-teams Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin ("9 to 5") as Grace and Frankie, respectively, bringing their chemistry to the small screen. It's a casting reunion on a grand scale, as Tomlin is reunited with her co-star from "The West Wing," Martin Sheen, who plays Grace's husband, Robert. And Fonda is back with Sam Waterston, her co-star from "The Newsroom," who plays Frankie's husband, Sol.

I'm on season 1 episode 4 of Thrones, better do something soon to get me hooked. Something, besides the "soft porn" that is featured in each episode.
