I'm enjoying Parks and Recreation at the moment.

And 'Cheers'.

The squeaky shoe episode has me in stitches.

Ron Swanson is a hero of mine.

We've just started re-watching Fringe, as my other half never finished it the first time around. If you enjoyed things like the X-Files, this will be up your street.

I loved Fringe - great blend of word, macabre and conspiracy to price really good, disturbing sci-fi.

Currently getting into the Blue Book. And soon - Picard - though given that Andres loved ST:NG and especially Patrick Stewart I may have to summon up the strength.

Rich W "Currently getting into the Blue Book. And soon - Picard"

I think you'll love Picard. As my Star Trek mad daughter says (I'm not innocent in the indoctrination) and in contrast to Discovery, "it's like they actually care."

I quite like Discovery actually - though I've not seen Season 2 yet. But the return of Picard takes me back to happier, heady days. thumbs downsmiling smiley

I've enjoyed Discovery so far, but you've got to go in accepting that it isn't 'classic' Star Trek.

If you want a real marathon, Supernatural is coming to the end of its 15th, and thankfully final, season. Average of 23 episodes-per.

+1 great choice. Lovely gentle humour and beautiful cinematography/camera work.

Justified, Black Sails.

Still game, Norsemen.

Couldn't agree more. A real gem.

One of my favourite musicians, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, is doing daily gigs from his home in Seattle. This one features covers of John Lennon, Rilo Kiley, Big Star, Elliott Smith, Phoebe Bridgers, Bob Dylan, The Shins, Def Leppard and The Flaming Lips.

I liked Vice Principals (available on Now TV I think) with Danny McBride. His new show "The Righteous Gemstones", about a US mega church is great fun too.

Community is good to watch lots of episodes too.

A new one I've only caught a couple of episodes of is AP Bio, but they were very funny and I'm going to try and catch the early ones I missed.

Dracula on the iPlayer is more like three movies than a TV series but was good.
