Wish I could stop watching amaz0n's shitty Man in the High Castle. The most likeable character is a Nazi and I don't think the writers and producers intend it to be that way. Death to the resistance.

someone asked me a ways back what was the best way to track tv shows. this is my goto -- sidereel.

american gods, the white princess, the handmaidens tale, guerrilla
ready to endorse legion. first ep was great but i wasnt sure if it would devolve into some rote marvel property. has managed to stary weird albeit aimless in a traditional plot sense. certainly worth a look. airs on fx.
Looking for something to take my mind off of the news I stumbled upon Detectorists, so far so good but I'm only one episode in. NYT: DETECTORISTS Britain (Acorn) - Mackenzie Crook’s melancholy comedy about the minor triumphs of a pair of friends who share a passion for metal detecting is the most delicate of shows — it feels as if it might float away while you’re watching it. In its second season, Mr. Crook and especially Toby Jones continued their marvelous work as small-timers who, most of the time, mask their frustration and rage in hilariously ineffectual diffidence. NETFLIX.
I've been watching Black Mirror on netflix. Premise is a lot like The Twilight Zone, each episode is a complete story with a moral. The stories are usually set in the near future and concern our relationship to technology and media. Also kind of reminds me of William Gibson's novel The Peripheral which I am currently reading.
