Oh, and the whole conflict of the show is choosing between her mortal side and witch side. But her mortal life is so dull, I just wanted her to sign the damn book and go to the magical school.

But when? I read a spoiler that she signs the book, but it sounded like it happens at the end of this season/Part? If it happens sooner, I might finish it sooner rather than later!

You heard right, it's in the last episode of part one. But yeah, if you're not into the show it can be hard to force yourself to watch. I can see the weaknesses in the show, but I was interested enough to keep going anyway. I'm hoping some of the writing will be rectified as the show goes on, if it lasts that long  :shrug It has potential :-)

Shoot, I don't get CW.

Youíre not missing out on much. The only show I can say I honestly love on that channel is Legends of Tomorrow!

I almost wish I hated it. But it illicits no emotions in me. I just find it utterly uninteresting. If I ever do finish it, I do hope it gets better for me.

I'll be watching The Apprentice (UK) tonight. Not keen on any of the contestants or "Lord" Alan Sugar, but it's fun to see the contestants botch things up.

It was Halloween and I just happened to watch episodes 3 of two new witch shows: Charmed and Sabrina!

Iím really starting to like Charmed. Theyíre improving with every episode.

And, I thought episode 3 of Sabrina was the best yet! Maybe because it mostly focused on the witch world? Even Harvey became a bit more interesting because of his crappy home life.

Found that I could download the CW app to my Roku and I've been watching Charmed. The first episode was better than I expected and I'm on the third episode now. The only problem I have is the repetitive commercials. They'll repeat the same commercial anywhere from 2-6 times in a row. If I can get past that, I'll keep watching.

I record all my shows so I can skip the commercials. Having to sit through commercials would drive me mad. Though I guess you could always turn them into mini writing sprints!

If you have Netflix, all CW shows go up there 8 days after the season ends on TV.

Just started watching this. And I'm surprised by how much I enjoy it. I think it's because both the script and the acting is really excellent. I can't figure out why I care about the main character as he is clearly an absolutely self centered snob, but for some reason, I do. I'm curious how exactly the writers did that.

I managed to watch the first episode free here in the UK (a TV Guide sent a link to watch it) but never saw the other eps as I don't have Sky TV. Thought Cumberbatch was fantastic in the role.

I've been catching up on Outlander. Still on series 1 but a few eps away from the prison episode (I've read the first five books so know what's coming). Great to see so many genuinely Scottish actors in it. Unfortunately the actress playing Gheillis Duncan had a dodgy Scots accent.

I've also caught up with The Man in the High Castle. Gosh, series 4 is going to be good!

At last, a fellow Outlander fan!!!! I started a thread to discuss Season 4 but didn't have any takers.

They got very graphic between Jamie and Black Jack so I skipped that episode. My only disappointment in the season was the Abbey. They diluted the scene between Jamie and Claire where she made him think she was Black Jack and made him fight back. It would have been a fantastic scene. Instead, they just had a conversation. Other than that, Ron Moore has done a wonderful job and added scenes that really enhanced the story.

You skipped that episode? But itís the thing that makes it so different from all the other romances out there. The fact that they were willing to go there with the male hero. Itís been a while since Iíve seen it, but Claire did dress up as Black Jack and used his scent to provoke a reaction out of Jamie to help him heal after the incident.

Iím not a book reader, so I can only comment on the TV series, but I loved the first two seasons. I thought season 3 was very uneven. I donít get Starz, so I watch the show when it comes out on Blu-ray, so I canít join the discussion on the new season.
Spoiler: ShowHide
I have to say that Iím not too excited about the new direction of the show. America just does not compare to Scotland! And from what Iíve read, the rest of the books take place in America. Also, the romance was always the least interesting part of the show for me. I need plot! It also doesnít help that two of my favorite characters (Black Jack and Geillis Duncan) are dead.  :icon_cry:

You convinced me. I'll go back and watch that episode.

The books went downhill after Voyager (3) anyway but not because it moved to America. There is the revolution, of course, to supply action. It's just Gabaldon didn't run out of story, but she ran out of ideas. Too many kidnappings, not to mention her writing style changed. As she thinks of a scene, she writes it. Doesn't matter where in the story it's going to land. Then she puts them in some sort of order and knits them together. I've read them all just because but I think the series is now much better than the books. I won't be reading any more of the books.

Fergus was my favorite secondary character but starting with book 4, Young Ian became my favorite.

Regarding your spoiler, I feel the same. Haven't read the last two(?) books as I didn't enjoy them as much as the earlier ones.

None of them, in my opinion, were as good as the first book.

Just watched the first episode of #4 based on The Fiery Cross. A lot of it was ho-hum, but Stephen Bonnett, oh my. Ed Speelers nailed him.

Comet screwed up my normal TV viewing by moving the shows I watch into prime time instead of after prime time, but I find I don't miss the new shows as much and end up skipping them and watching older shows instead.

So I watch Stargate: SG-1 followed by Babylon 5.  Every night, seven days a week.  If I'm home.  After that, I switch the channel to Friends which runs for like two or three hours straight every night.

On Sundays, I watch new episodes of Doctor Who and The Last Ship but the series finale for The Last Ship is this Sunday so that will be done and they've somehow managed to turn Doctor Who into a snooze-fest.  I keep seeing rave reviews for it and continually wonder if people are watching the same show I am.

I only watch TV at night and one episode (1.5 hours) of Inspector George Gently gets me through the evening. If I watch in the afternoon, I turn on old episodes of Project Runway. The show is switching back to Bravo from Lifetime and I don't know if the new shows will be seen on Hulu.

Weekly shows are The Rookie, DWTS, and Outlander.  I don't have cable or satellite so I mostly watch Hulu, Starz and Amazon Prime.

I didn't read the books, so this is all new to me, but I can say they're doing an amazing job. Aspiring writers - this is how you do it.

I thought about writing something clever about the story or the lack thereof, or maybe the lack of characterization or even the over the top artistic self-indulgence, but nope, just going with something simple...

Awww, I love Julia Roberts and was hoping this would turn out to be good. Oh well.

I just watched the first season of The Sinner.

I enjoyed Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman, but I thought the plot was too slow and it didn't work for me as a mystery. Not enough material for the viewer to guess / figure things out and too many plot holes, or what I feel are plot holes.

I gave up on Arrow midway through last season. The only way Iím watching that show again is if they get rid of Felicity. So, basically never! LOL! I watch Flash but itís not my favorite or anything. Iíve never watched Supergirl.

As for Legends...

Spoiler: ShowHide
I was sad when Snart died as well, but as long as my favorite (Sara Lance) is there, Iíll keep watching. I will say, the show has really gotten better during the last two seasons or so. They donít take themselves too seriously anymore and itís really fun to watch now!

I haven't seen Legends this season and have only seen a half an episode of The Flash.  Haven't seen Supergirl either.

The first couple episodes I missed weren't intentional.  I was working late at the office and missed them.  But I haven't been tuning in otherwise either.  They're on at the same time as Stargate: SG-1 and Babylon 5 reruns on Comet.  So Comet has been winning out.  Same with Doctor Who.  I've never missed a new episode if I was home to watch it, but this season has been so bleh that Babylon 5 episodes win out.  I catch up on Doctor Who by reading the summaries online.

The mediocrity coming from Hollywood in television and film at the moment is staggering.

Recently watched:

The Haunting of Hill House

-Some interesting ideas, but more often than not I found the storytelling ponderous and the drama overwrought. I wish it had been more about the horror and the ghosts and less about inter-family dynamics and kitchen sink drama.

House of Cards, Season 6

- Utterly ridiculous to the point of being laughable. Who greenlit these scripts? Hammy acting (though I thought Robin Wright was pretty good given the material she had to work with) and just over-the-top soap opera motivations and reveals. If "torture-porn" is a thing in over-the-top horror movies, then consider this show "conniving-scheme-porn". All that was missing was a character literally twirling their mustache. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, the show hasn't been good since perhaps the first or second season.

Almost through the first season of Man In The High Castle: Amazon sent a free Prime trial so we thought we should watch everything we might want to watch before it expires.

To be honest, while it started well, it's getting a bit dull. I'm hoping something happens soon. It's one of Dick's books that I've never read, so I don't know how it compares to the original story, but it's starting to feel like an alternate-world soap-opera where nothing is ever going to be resolved.

I've been binge-watching NYPD Blue, hoping to get through it before it leaves Hulu.

Damn good show.

Watched the second episode of The Rookie. So far, so good.

Now I'm waiting for the second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (December 5). Finally!!!

I've only heard of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel yesterday. I think I need to give it a try!

One of the reasons I loved it was the setting in 1958. And, of course, Tony Shaloub. They're all wonderful, really.

Well, thank you so much. Just finishing up season one and I enjoyed it a lot  :icon_mrgreen:

Recently finished...

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - This is one of those shows where it seems like the middle was the best part. I think my favorite episode is ďFeast of FeastsĒ. I also really liked ďThe Trial of Sabrina SpellmanĒ and ďThe BurialĒ if I remember correctly. The first few episodes were disappointing and so were the last two. Some of the writing on this show is so bad that I felt bad for the actors that had to say those lines. Still, thereís hope that the second season might be more fun.

Murdoch Mysteries: Season 11 - Some interesting choices but still going strong. All the main characters are likable, but I love Dr. Julia Ogden! As long as sheís there, Iíll continue watching. Iím also looking forward to checking out the Frankie Drake Mysteries by the same creators. If you like shows in a similar vein, I also highly recommend Miss Fisherís Murder Mysteries.

Currently watching (and looking forward to)...

Legends of Tomorrow is AMAZING, especially these last two episodes. This show is so fun and out there, itís hard not to like! Iím also beyond glad that Constantine ended up on this show. Heís played by the same actor as the short-lived NBC show, of which I could only stomach a few episodes. LOT isnít afraid to explore Constantineís bisexuality, something which canít be said about the homophobic showrunner of the NBC show (who also famously straightwashed Leonardo da Vinci). Rant over. LOT awesome, will probably get cancelled because I love it too much!

Iím liking where the new Charmed is going. Theyíre doing some interesting things that werenít explored on the original show. Blindspot is better this season than last. Midnight, Texas is also doing well in its second season. Manifest is interesting enough. Dirty John has Juno Temple in it so I canít complain! The Flash is okay. Some episodes are better than others. Canít wait for How to Get Away with Murder to come back from their break. Love that show! Iím also looking forward to season 3 of Travelers, which is coming this Friday on Netflix. Oh, and Iím halfway through Channel Zero: The Dream Door, and Iím quite liking it so far!

Yes, I watch a lot of TV.  grint

I'm waiting for Charmed to come on Netflix. I only watched a couple of episodes but was pleasantly surprised that I liked it.

The original Upstairs Downstairs. I love those old BBC costume dramas. After this one, I'll be watching Lillie (Lillie Langtry).

I'm still waiting for Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Bump.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 started Dec. 5 on Amazon Prime. I'm trying to only watch one episode at a time. It's a great cast, but Tony Shaloub is outstanding.

I haven't seen the show in question, but he's always great.  Wings, Monk, Galaxy Quest... I've never not enjoyed his performances.

Ah, Galaxy Quest. I was sorry when Tony Shaloub wasn't available for the anniversary special.

I'm currently watching Monk and Wings. Shaloub is a treasure.

If Netflix announced they were making season 7 of House of Cards with Shaloub as the star, I'd binge-watch it. (That's saying something as season 6 was a train wreck.)

The only thing currently on TV worth watching.

I will not forget one line of this, not one day. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.
