I like Ripper Street when I have seen it. Also, although not BBC, Penny Dreadful had much to recommend it. On Netflix now.

Broadchurch? Being a huge fan of Tennant, gotta watch em all.

I like Matthew MacFadyen too, which is probably why I enjoy Ripper Street so much :-)

Three pages and no mention of Saul!  That's another one I eagerly await returning.

That's another one I'm on pins and needles for too. They left us hanging at the end of season 2.

Another one I've heard good things about. May have to jump on since they're only 3-4 episodes into it.

Nobody talks about The Americans on FX. Late to the party on this one but like usual, FX hit a home run on this.

I am not excited about this, but I'm sure I'll be watching a lot of Gilmore Girls this fall on the one TV I own which my wife and I share.

I watched the first episode of Fleabag last night (British show, available on Amazon) and it was quite good. A bit like You're the Worst but not quite as charming, though it's hard to see where it's going with just one episode.

 

I also watched the pilot of The Tick. It's acceptable, though mainly it made me really miss Warburton and his criminally short run in the role.

I didn't see The People vs. OJ Simpson, but I can't imagine it was better than Fargo... 

Bokeem Woodbine also got robbed for the Outstanding Supporting Actor Award...

That show took almost every single category!  

 

Granted, Fargo doesn't belong in that category either, but it should've smoked that series.

Last year for some reason was the year of OJ... I remember ESPN made a documentary or even a series about it. Then FX jumped on the bandwagon and made this show.

Tonight: 

"Gotham" season 3 premiere on Fox.

"The Good Place" starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson - Pilot airs on NBC. 

 

"Kevin Can Wait" starring Kevin James - pilot airs on CBS. The commercials look pretty bad. 

"The Big Bang Theory" - much like "Everybody Loves Raymond" I can't believe this show is still on, and supposedly successful.
