Glad you posted that. I didn't know Mad Dogs had aired. I saw the pilot last year, loved it, and have been looking forward to the rest of the series since then.

Has anybody seen the original Mad Dogs and do they know how the American version compares? I really liked the original although it got weaker with every season.

Watching Mad Dogs has made me interested in Belize.

Interesting little country...with some pristine beaches/diving/nature.

Apparently, the people are a blend of creoles, mayans, mestizos, and even Mennonites.

I remember John McAfee had his misadventures there a couple years back.

It's a popular tax shelter, but the place is corrupt to the hilt. Sounds like a lot of fun though.

Watching 'Outsiders'...

Pretty good so far. I never thought I'd enjoy watching a show about hillbillies lol.

I don't know if anyone watched the first season of Gotham. It got high praise but personally it felt to me like it didn't know what it actually wanted to be.

Second season is going strong though from what I'v seen so far. There's corny aspects of the show which are basically impossible to avoid in the world of super heroes realism may have made the show brilliant had they pulled it off but likely not possible within the DC universe.. However there's also a brutality that I have not seen or expected to see in anything which is a part of the batman franchise.

You honestly think your watching something pre watershed time then penguin or someone stabs some old lady about 20 times while the women is screaming in a fairly realistic manner. Will be interesting to see what comes of it.

I can't do anything comic-based anymore. My IQ feels damaged by the end of it.

On the plus side, The Night Manager may be the best spy series I've even seen. Hugh Laurie is brilliant in it.

My dad keeps going on about the Night manager.

Had no idea a new season of house of cards was out. As well as TWD season 6 part 2.

TWD has been way better in the 2nd half of the season than it was in the first. Probably the best it's been for a few years.

Yeah first half of TWD season was slow as fuck. Definitely should not have split up the characters as much as they did. Glad to hear it's back on track.

Take back what I said about comic shows..

Dardevil season 2 is better than the first.

The broad who plays Elektra is smoking. I've noticed Eurasians age extremely well. Still can't believe she's 35 though...

I'm not giving any spoilers away but the last episode in this season of TWD is one of the best they've ever done. Very dark, lots of suspense and a really good ending.

^ don't listen to him, it was total shit and we don't even find out who died. It goes on forever and fuck all happens. TWD same as every good show, starts out great, has a really good 2nd or 3rd season and it's all downhill from there.

I think the 2nd half of this season is the best it's been since the 3rd season. I can understand some people being a bit pissed off with the nature of the ending (personally I quite like it) but the whole episode developed really well. Definitely the most they've ever built the suspense.

RE: Good tv shows especially on netflix?
I will listen to hicks. I have friends who claimed the season in which the walking dead became the most watched show in history was terrible. The season in which darryls brother goes after the governor. I thought it was great as did the majority of people. His reasoning was they mostly stayed in the same place (the prison). Child like to the extreme I Expected better from you sexyback seems to have similar reasoning. The beginning of the present season where all got split up was not upto par will give you that. I'v noticed TWD tend to have severe cliffhanger last episodes then action packed first season episodes e.g. The governor arriving at prison then the slaughter on both sides first episode next season.

About to start daredevil season 2 tonight. I have heard great things about the punisher in it whos rumoured to be getting his own show from it. I have high hopes that if that happens it will be more popular than daredevil which is a decent show in its own right.
