    Or their streaming was rubbish... mine was also just fine. But they couldve helped with a little more contrast.

    Started watching Stranger things, season 3 :)

    I didn't realise that the whole season was available, but I did the grown up thing and didn't watch it all in one night :D

    Ya, would that I didn't have any responsibilities in life, and could binge tv shows all day.
    I'm hoping watch it this weekend.

    So the new season of archer is available, and it's great, think all your favourite 1990's and early 2000's sci fi mixed with archer!

    Handmaids Tale, current/latest season, catching up to around Ep.10 atm.

    Sometimes a little slow burning, which I personally don't mind too much.
    Things are moving along nicely to this seasons 'endgame'.

    I have to say I like this series on a few levels and I think it's grown on me more lately/ this season.
    I often had moments before where the whole premise would grind on me a little, but maybe that's my patriarchal programming getting in a huff.. I don't know.

    Also watching the handmaids tale.

    I found it drag a lot, there are some strong messages in the show, but the direction and script is too slow.

    You can often tell what sort of episode it will be based on which director, as with a lot of TV programs they appear to direct episodes in sets of 2 or 3 between a few directors. I'm not sure if I like that format, but it seems fairly common now.

    Line of Duty (Netflix)

    BBC series about a Northern Police force's version of Internal Affairs (investigating dodgy coppers). It appears each series is a different case, but theres an underlying story that's going to last through all of them.

    Quite good so far.

    The Expanse - It's gunning for being my favourite sci-fi series even over things like Star Trek, Star Gate, Battlestar Galactica, and Babylon 5. It certainly ranks among them easily. I'm on my third viewing of seasons 1-3 and eagerly awaiting season 4. MUST WATCH if you like sci-fi.

    Killjoys - What I thought was kind of a cheesy low budget sci-fi series is in fact just that, but it's also fun and interesting.

    One of the best sci-fi series of all time IMO.

    They took forever to get to UK streaming services though. I was waiting to see where season 3 would show up for ages, but never found out.

    Started watching scream Queens on prime.
    Same writer/directors as Glee /American horror.

    Very entertaining, just realised that I'm 4 years late to it and it was cancelled after season 2

    The only sci-fi I've seen that not only includes the coriolis effect of spinning habitats, but uses it as a plot device!

    Total hard sci-fi nerd heaven!

    Expanse fans might like to know that tomorrow I'm heading to Space Rocks in London, and Dominique Tipper (Naomi Nagata in the show) will be there. Will grab a selfie with her if I can.

    Started watching AHS: 1984
    an okay start. We'll see how it unfolds.

    Also watching "The Boys" on Amazon Prime - really enjoying this gritty behind the scenes alternate version of superhero life.

    Stranger Things 3

    More of the same, and then some.

    Stranger Things, can't say I liked how it ended. Was a bit of a downer.
    Looks like it's shaping up for another run, but I would like a little deeper backstory next time though.

    It feels a bit thin on that side of things, as in what exactly is going with this 'other world' , why and how..

    Started The Capture (BBC), intriguing and nicely done so far, shaping up really well.
