From my reading, Sherlock is likely done, at least for the foreseeable future. Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are pretty busy actors and Steven Moffat is off doing something with Bram Stoker's Dracula. None of them outright say it is over, but those seasons were like doing 4-5 full length movies in a short time and I imagine it was tough on all of them.

I am also ready for the new Dr. Who season to start and American Horror Story started back up tonight!

Stop watching bad movies in the theater and you'll have plenty of time.

Watching it based on the recommendations here and have to agree. Very well written and directed.

Norm McDonald Has a Show has roughly the production value of this post, but the first episode with David Spade was phenomenal. Drew Barrymore episode was good enough, but I could have watched Norm & Spade go back and forth for a feature length episode.

Word.
All of the 'em have been great imo. Letterman's is up there with Spade's. The 90s live again!

I know I'm a little late to the Jack Ryan conversation, but damn, I wanted that to be better. It was a pretty good plot. But the writing was mediocre, at best. Sub-par acting, and really bad directing/editing/production.

The love story felt very shoehorned. And the tone was constantly and abruptly changing. Krasinski went back to the "turning towards the camera with a perplexed look on his face" from The Office, but modified it to a more blank expression, looking just slightly off camera whenever he had a revelation about the case.

6.5/10

Exactly! It is like he is struggling to keep from staring directly into the camera.

Digging The First on Hulu so far (three episodes in). It’s really, really full of itself, but the acting is spot on and the cinematography is quite pretty. We’re going back and forth between that, and the Norm McDonald show (which continues to be fantastic).

Just finished binging Maniac on Netflix, I thought it was definitely pretty interesting, mind bending in some ways. Looking forward to seeing Daredevil season 3 next week as well!

I was sad to hear it was cancelled too. I haven't seen Season 2 yet but I did enjoy Season 1 and it wasn't nearly as bad as others made it out to be.

Forever on Prime was fantastic. Had zero idea on the overall theme of the show prior to watching, but it was much more interesting than I thought it would be. Open ended to the point where they could do another season if they wanted, but I was completely satisfied with how they ended it.
