    Happy! 8/10 (Netflix)

    This is one ecentric and fun ride, coupled with good acting and a good script.
    Christopher Meloni might have acted his life's best here (haven't seen much of his work but can bet this is best)
    Check it out for sure. Only 8 episodes in first season.

    Finished Goliath S01 yesterday (2 days straight). 8/10 from me.
    No, @sam9s , did not see due to your recco here but after watching I recalled that someone in forum posted about this. Glad that it was you. Always trusted your reccos may be differed on ratings.

    This is best courtroom drama after "The Verdict" (@sam9s, you should have mentioned 'courtroom drama' in your review somewhere, I would have watched it long back).
    Best acting, best script writing and keeps you on toes till the very end.
    Then again, the end result does not justify the arguments provided. The weak team won!

    Onto S02 now.

    b/w its available in Amazon Prime, if anyone interested.

    ****************************************************************************************
    Cloak and Dagger S01 till 3 episodes (Amazon Prime)

    Another b-grade (or c-grade) superhero saga from Marvel. 3 episodes down and they did not even scratched the surface of story. Making this dark for the sake of being dark.

    Went through IMDB and the common comment is TERRIBLE!
    I'm really sad and confused now.

    Luke Cage S02 3/10

    I was right about Luke Cage. This was a borefest and still is. S02 is even worse than S01 and when compared to Jessica Jones S02, it's even worse than that.
    Each episode had two full songs! And you blame bollywood?!
    Felt like watching "Hum aapke hai kaun" in english.

    Stay away, you are not missing anything, trust me on this.

    Anyone watching K-dramas?

    After My Azhussi and Miracle That We Met, I found What Is Wrong With Secretary Kim interesting initially but looks like it is also turning into some sort of typical drama.

    At episode 11 now and yes, songs were not required in the foreground. They could've condensed it to 10-11 episodes by removing all songs. Plot has been weak.
    Shades is my favourite character so far in both seasons.

    Agreed. Had to FWD all bs melodrama.. JJ s02 was much better. And that ending made no sense at all. Seems writers went out of ideas what to do for season 3.

    I'm watching all superhero TV shows that are happening in US TV now.
    Flash, Arrow, Legends Of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Cloak and Dagger, Legion (S01 only), Luke Cage, JJ, Daredevil, Iron Fist.
    Among all these most entertaining I find is Flash.
    Has cool villains and they have well exlored the comic parts. So, no nonsense of toning down the sci-fi with reality.
    Daredevil comes second with a goos storyline and best action on TV ever.
    Arrow used to be in that top list but now it is deviating from comics and alligning more with usual daily soap elements.

    Rest all are second or third class shows; poor writing, slow pace and detached from their comics storyline.

    Started watching Taboo and have been really impressed. It's been a while since i have watched anything this good. Tom Hardy is phenomenal.!

    Secret Love - 9/10

    Complex relationship/love story. Really liked the heroine's performance. The whole thing about her kid was sad.

    Altered Carbon - Impressive first few episodes, visually great, over the top in some ways, dipped in the last few. Performances from Joel Kinnaman and Chris Conner were good but rather meh from others. Sure did like the world built up around the series, will definitely check out season 2.

    The Expanse - I love sci-fi space operas be it games, movies or shows and this is definitely in my favorite list. Edge of the seat entertainment that has it all. Watched the 2 seasons over the weekend and was thoroughly impressed, really had me hooked. Any idea when Netflix will stream season 3 here?
