So what's everyone watching? I want to get into some good shows this season. Not sure where to start. I haven't kept up with anything in the last year or so except Supernatural and The Walking Dead

I want to watch a real good scifi show. I loved the 100 but missed this last season.

I just read that Designated Survivor was picked up by Netflix. I only watched a few episodes, but I did like what I saw. Nice that Netflix is giving it a chance.

I am enjoying Manifest, it's getting more and more interesting.

9-1-1 is still great. I don't have an explanation, I just like it. I miss Connie Britton a little, but at least Angela Bassett is still there, and she is awesome.

I did not catch God Friended Me, but I want to check it out.

Lethal Weapon-I have mixed feelings. It definitely isn't the same without Clayne, but I am going to give it a couple more episodes. I really like the actress that plays the wife (Keisha Sharp?). I miss the old main lineup though. Sigh...

DH is watching The Last Ship. At least they are actually the last ship this season, lol. So much gunfire...

I am enjoying American Horror Story-mostly because of Kathy Bates.

Also watching The Gifted-still pretty good.

I'm not sure if this falls into the 'Fall' category, but we are enjoying The Purge.

I watched the pilot when it aired but I lost track of the series.  I’ll have to check it out on demand if it’s good.  The pilot was serviceable: didn’t blow me away, but also didn’t turn me off.  Pilots and early eps of series are typically fairly week as showrunners, writers, and actors are finding their footing.  “The Purge” pilot felt like a lot of setup, which is obviously what’s necessary.  I’ll hopefully have time to catch up with it by Thanksgiving week.

If you’re not watching “The Good Place” you’re missing out on one of the smartest, most consistently funny shows on TV.  Both the first two seasons are on Netflix and the new season is only a couple of episodes in.

“Maniac” on Netflix is pretty awesome: surreal, trippy, but a good watch.

Has anyone watched The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix yet? I binged it this weekend. I didn't love the first episode, but I'm glad a I kept with it because starting with episode 2 I thought it got really good. It's a good binge (I thought the ending could have used some work, though)

The first episode was definitely setup. The series follows a group of people through Purge night. I like the character development and that it's not just all hack and slash and shock value. It actually looks at how 'normal' people might react to having a Purge in their town. Now that's not to say that I like all of the characters, but I can understand most of their motivations.

Wow, guess I'm convincing... ;)

For my son, an added factor is that he wears one of his collection of Purge shirts while watching. We waited for 2 hours to get into Purge City at SDCC and picked up 4 different shirts...

Ha; you convinced me too!  Unfortunately I'm in the middle of HS marching band season so my TV-watching time is extremely limited (and, in October, most of my free/TV watching time is spent watching horror movies  :P - I guess The Purge could technically fall into that category, huh)
