Excellent thread and awesome work, as always! This month is a little quieter for me outside of currently airing shows and things returning to Netflix, so it'll be a catch-up month for me. The end of the month looks really strong, though!

Looking forward to Patrick Melrose. Showtime+Cumberbatch? Sounds potentially great to me.

Coming off of Homeland/Billions Showtime is killing it.

Oh thank the gods, there aren't that many additions to my seemingly never ending list of shows I want to watch.

Vida and The Rain are the only two that I'm particularly interested in, with Busted! as a potential "Eh, let's give it a look."

Great work RatskyWatsky

Will watch:
Dear White People - If for no other reason that this show upsets some very annoying people. It also is a good show so there's at least two good reasons to watch it.
Patrick Melrose - I'm a simple man, if it has Benedict Cumberbatch in it I will most likely watch it. Luckily for me it looks like pretty good show.
The Tale - Looks gut wrenching.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt - Probably not gonna binge it on the day of release. But I've fairly consistently enjoyed the show

Might Watch:
Safe - If it's well received.
Fahrenheit 451 - If it's well received. Looks pretty good though.
The Split - I like Abi Morgan but I'm not sold on the premise so it's another "if it's well received."
Picnic at Hanging Rock - If it's well received. I adore the orignal film and TV remakes have a mixed record for me.

This is like the lightest month in quite a while! Thank fuck for that, maybe I will finally have time to be a social animal, work on bettering my self, or even go on a dat- remembers backlog ... dammit. Stop making so much good TV

Taskmaaaaaaster!

(Also Taskmaster US, but that started last Friday, whereas original-flavour British Taskmaster is hitting tomorrow)

Umming and ahhing over whether to start a thread, one was suggested in the Game Show OT and getting more eyes on Taskmaster would benefit everyone.

From a UK angle....

Taskmaster UK new series on Dave ..

Also Humans Series 3 starts in May on Channel 4 (I'd guess Sunday 13th May 9pm as Homeland finishes on the 6th May 9pm timeslot)

Likely to binge on Westworld Season 1 and pick up on Season 2 if I like it.

The trailer is geo-locked to the us (I tried to make a youpak link but it didn't work for me so I used a VPN, if you want to a direct link and not an embed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncfFNRKjgaI)



It's pretty amazing how out there CBS All Access is compared to its broadcast brother. And so far they're 2 for 2 on the drama side with Star Trek Disco and The Good Fight. Hope this delivers.

Oh my, I had no idea this was anywhere close to coming out. Parsons and his story is so insane and wonderful and the show looks like it has a pretty great handle on it.

Can't wait for:
L. Ron Hubbard to show up.

Probably only Colony in terms of new stuff. Fahrenheit HBO looks so bland, but I'll watch for Michael Shannon at least.

I finished Bellevue with Sookeh and it was fun and trashy Canadian noir/sad feelings up and down. Highly recommended.

I am finally getting to Marvel's Defenders and will bust through it pretty quickly, in case it's boring.

My only new commitments this month are Diablo Guardian and Queen Sugar. I'm cautiously optimistic about Diablo Guardian. I adore the novel and hope it survives the adaptation. Queen Sugar feels a little early compared to previous seasons, but I'm not gonna complain.

Maybe it's time I watch Dear White People since I'll have more time on my hands in May.

Hard to say what'll watch this month. There's not much new stuff I wanna check out. The Rain I'll probably check out some rainy Sunday when I got nothing else to do, as it's filmed at my place. But May will be all about catching up with my weekly shows and all the returning shows from April. Haven't even finished Legion S1 (got the finale left), The Expanse S1 (got the finale left), or started up The Handmaid's Tale S2, Westworld S2, The Originals S5 or Into the Badlands S3 yet. This shit is actually stressing me out a bit, as I want to be in on the discussions for these shows.

Catching up on Counterpart, that show is damn good. It's kind of like Fringe meets The Americans. Highly recommended.

Killing Eve is technically a drama. But it's also the funniest (and best) new show of the year.

Right now I'm only watching Silicon Valley.

Just finished the Punisher recently and it was fantastic.

The other show I need to start is Westworld season 2.

I still have Counterpart on my watchlist (or rather waiting list ;)), but this is a good recommendation. I loved Fringe and I really like The Americans. :)
