In keeping with the more regular music threads.

Narcos. I'm into season 3, which is dealing with the Cali Cartel. Still a pretty good show, even if I know it's not the most accurate series out there.

Devilman Crybaby. Netflix original anime series, loosely based on a manga from the early 1970s. Absolutely batshit insane, but in a way that's fun rather than being incoherent, edgy, and/or obnoxious. Really great animation (reminds me a lot of Samurai Champloo). Like a psychotic, violent FLCL with more nudity.

Halt and Catch Fire. I really didn't think I'd like this, but I've been really enjoying it (and I got my wife hooked too). I really enjoy anything set in the early days of computing, and this show was smart enough to focus on the people rather than the tech.


OftenBen:

Just finished The Next Generation for the first time and I must say I am a fan of Star Trek now. Roddenberry really had a vision and I think he was really successful in exploring it and communicating it to the public. I also understand why Trekkers don't really get invested in the Trek/Wars rivalry as much as star wars fans. Star wars is entertaining and fun. Star Trek has a message. At its best it tries to get people onboard with the idea of something grand and beautiful. A tomorrow worth believing in that can be brought about by individual action, responsibility, and a trust in those a person relies upon.

Needless to say I am hooked. We just started Deep Space Nine, then we are going to watch Voyager before tackling the original series.
