    Great show, I wish it had continued, but as noted above, probably for the best that it didn't overstay its welcome.

    I do agree that USA tends to run their shows into the ground rather than quitting while the quitting is good. But that's not really surprising, it's rare that TV channels quit a show while they're ahead **unless they have staffing/actor/director issues, etc.**.

    I'll have to check it out. I like Sarah Shahi.

    Second.


    Finally got around to starting Suits. I'm sure it's got way too many seasons as per usual but w/e. Keeps me busy for a while. :P

    Life was a very fun show to watch. I feel like if it had been given a 3rd season with only half the normal amount of episodes they could have ended it a little better. Suits is fun but is getting a little stale for me. I used to stay up to date on the newest episodes and am falling behind. Still haven't watched last season yet.

    I cannot handle these hour-long dramas anymore. We get the 5 month old to sleep around 7, my wife goes to bed at 9 (she doesn't like dramas) so after making bottles or whatever chores I need to do, I can start a show until after 10. Since I wake up at 5 (AT THE LATEST) every morning with the baby, I can't make it 20 minutes into "The Night of" or "The Americans." I'm stuck watching "Ballers" and "Vice Prinicipals." The former is semi-entertaining fluff, the latter has a really inconsistent tone. It's like "Eastbound and Down" but with extra pathos. It goes from a "Stepbrothers" level of silliness to some disturbing shit pretty quickly.

    For you Canadians in the group, I've been watching The Amazing Race Canada. Is it good TV? No, not really. But when there's nothing on and you're prepping dinner, it makes for an OK show in background.

    Haven't watched Hinterland but most UK tv shows are not standalone episodes and require you to follow the show. Some have enough plot to stand alone a bit (eg, Sherlock), but you'd miss a lot if you don't want it fully. Reading a little, it sounds like Hinterland is a noir crime drama, so I get its a bit slow at times (think True Detective Ssn 2). It's also Celtic, so that might be factored in.

    Surprised you didn't like Peaky, you might be the first person I've heard say that.

    I was in the same boat when my daughter was younger. I'm a huge fan of 22 minute comedies. Brooklyn 99 is best of anything on television. New season starting soon so get caught up. Old episodes of 30 Rock or Parks and Recreation were my go-to if I didn't have anything else to watch and wanted to zone out before bed.
