Climate change, altered vegetation patterns, and an increase in fire-prone landscapes have multiplied those crises -- forcing firefighters across the state to confront epic disasters that cost lives, millions of dollars in damage, and a massive scarring of the Earth. Alongside the stories of the Cal Fire and LA County Fire teams are those of new recruits training to join their brothers in the blaze; the women who've chosen to train at "Fire Camp" while serving time at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in Corona; and California artists Jeff Frost and Andrea Dale, who document the apocalyptic-looking damage in photos and artifact retrieval.

Grace became one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of 1840s Canada for her supposed role in the sensational double murder, and was eventually exonerated after 30 years in jail. Her conviction was controversial, and sparked much debate about whether Grace was actually involved in the murder, or merely an unwitting accessory.

My watches this fall are kind of random. At the moment, I'm working through:
  • The Good Place (top-tier)
  • DuckTales
  • The Flash (for now)
  • Legends of Tomorrow
  • Riverdale
  • Mr. Robot (if I don't forget it's on)
  • Dirk Gently (again, for now)
  • The Gifted
I don't know when The Magicians comes back on, but that'll probably be my next watch after Stranger Things is done. Don't really have the energy to get invested in a new show at the moment.

Yay. Thread is back!
I even saved my old post:
Great work as always on the thread Ratsky! <3

Will watch:

Narcos - Netflix
The two first seasons have been very solid, if unspectacular, entertainment.
BoJack Horseman - Netflix
I think this might be the best Netflix show right now.
The Deuce - HBO
David Simon can do no wrong (except supporting government surveillance/spying on its own citizens).
Top of the Lake: China Girl - SundanceTV
Loved the first series.
Star Trek: Discovery - CBS
pls be good
Mindhunter - Netflix
Hope it doesn't go the way of House of Cards.
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency - BBC America
I enjoyed the first season more than I thought I would.
Godless - Netflix
pls be good
Black Mirror - Netflix
Wait, this might actually be the best show on Netflix
Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams - Channel 4/Amazon
It looks so damn good, and it has some of the best talent around behind it.
The Alienist - TNT
pls be good, if nothing else it's a contender for the prettiest show on TV this year
The OA - Netflix
The first season was divisive, but I loved it. It's unapologetically weird, and that's a good thing.
The Terror - AMC
I love the setting, I love the talent behind and in front of the screen, pls be good
Tin Star - Amazon/Sky Atlantic
pls be good

Might watch:

Hassel - Viaplay
If the reviews are good. I really loved the last film with the original actor, so this feels superflous.
Engrenages - Canal+
Have some catching up to do first.
Ride Upon the Storm - DR1
If the reviews are good.
Liar - SundanceTV
If the reviews are good.
Vår tid är nu - SVT1
I will watch the first episode if not for watching what happens when SVT spends a fuckton of money.
Suburra - Netflix
If it translates as well to TV as Gomorrah thankfully did.
Babylon Berlin - Sky
If the reviews are good.
Cormoran Strike - BBC/HBO
Will watch when it makes it over here.
Stranger Things - Netflix
It's not that good y'all.
Gomorrah - Sky
Well it's more of a "have to watch the second season first thing".

Will watch as background fodder whilst doing dishes when they make it upon these shores of mine because despite it not being a good show I really love spy fiction and Richard Armitage:

Berlin Station - Epix

I'm not getting a boyfriend this year, am I?
I'll go back soon and go through how things panned out

Awesome thread, again. I'm watching The Orville and it keeps growing on me. I'm enjoying The Gifted, but I think I'm going to end up dropping Ghosted. I love the leads but the third episode is just sitting there. I picked up The Good Place and Blackish after binging them over the summer and I'm loving them so far. Everything else I'll probably just watch when their seasons are over.

Also looking forward to:

I watched the premiere of SMILF. I really liked it. Felt honest and real, sometimes uncomfortable (like real life so often is) and was rather funny. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

Also catching up on Season 1 of Riverdale.

I want to thank you berzeli for this thread, but I do so every time you put these lists together and I feel like it is not enough, but that's unfortunately all I can give back for your hard work. And a thanks to Cornballer, and TheOddOne for the wonderful OT's I look forward to every single time one of my anticipated shows are about to start. In fact, our whole community should claps each other on the back and say "well done," and what we got here makes watching tv shows and movies much more than that. Thanks a lot.

Unfortunately I can't remember the list I had made from that other forum, but luckily I also have my local excel sheet where I got my anticipated shows written down so I'm not completely lost. Will probably come in here to share impressions when I've been through seasons I haven't yet caught up with.

For this season alone though, Riverdale and Gotham will definitely be the shows I'll anticipate the most every week. And then new stuff like Runaways and Agents of Shield is something I look forward to as well.

The Good Doctor is one of the most bland tv series I have ever seen. It gets worse week after week.
The main character's actor(Norman on Bates Motel) is the only good element.

Will watch and cherish Agents of Shield, Punisher, Better Call Saul, and Westworld when they inevitably return. Might also check out Tracy Morgan's new show. I know nothing about it other than he's in it, but I love watching the guy so I'll probably try it at least.

You magnificent sod Ratsky, appreciate the work that goes into these every time. As usual, I'm watching entirely too much, although I've already started trimming the fat this season with Designated Survivor the latest casualty. I just don't have the patience for "of the week" type shows these days. Currently finishing American Vandal before Stranger Things drops in the morning.

I thought that this week's episode of Modern Family was one of the best episodes they've done in years. It was actually funny!

I also thought You're the Worst was fun, even though the show is still struggling with tone.
The Gretchen/Jimmy stuff in particular gave me whiplash, especially considering how they were acting towards each other earlier in the season. Their current dynamic hasn't been earned at all.

Gotta be honest... That's one of the most unappealing Fall line ups I've ever seen. I would be watching Ash vs Evil Dead now, but they've delayed that for whatever stupid reason... It's fucking Halloween. And, the next season of the Eric Andre show isn't airing either so I'm left with nothing new to watch.

Anyway finished the Leftovers last week and it was GODLY (no pun intended). I so regret not watching it when it was airing. Feels like I missed something special. Oh well, I loved watching it over the past few weeks. And, I started The Wire a few hours ago... My mind was melting because of so many character introductions and police lingo that I couldn't follow.

Hell yeah, Ratsky in this bitch!

This fall feels kinda sparse.

Broad City, AHS, with Gotham as background noise as far as traditional broadcast stuff.

Want to get around to watch Mindhunter, The Deuce, Curb Your Enthusiasm, It's Always Sunny, Workaholics, Game of Thrones, and Rick and Morty, as far as streaming and catching up on backseasons but I don't know how much of that I'll end up getting to before the year is done.

I'll probably check out the Punisher and Runaways but I'm real leery of Marvel shows after their recent Netflix run, though I know the latter is Hulu and looks way more promising.

Guys could we get a Riverdale Season 2 thread up? Loved that particular thread in our old community. I'd start it myself but no thread creating capability just yet.

Anyone feel like stepping up? It'd be awesome to have one.

EDIT: Looks like I can't read! There is a thread. Looks like the search function failed me. Never mind everyone.
