I thought the last couple of episodes were decent. The kid is way annoying to me. I actually was OK with some of the relationship stuff since it is interesting to think about. That being said, the show has generally disappointed me. And even the designations like "the major" or "the holy grail" are just stupid.

I’ve liked it.

The stupidest part with the "holy grail" bit was that they had to make it explicit it was a metaphor. Like we'd get confused and think we were watching Indiana Jones or The Librarians something.

Guess I didn't miss anything watching an episode of Bull before it gets cancelled instead.

I also started on those, kinda up and down so far but I'm liking it. 1 and 3 were great but 2 and 4 less so

The upcoming holiday meant staying up later to actually watch some tv shows on Sunday when they aired. Felt like a kid again.

Saw episodes 2 and 3 of True Detective. I'm liking it, though the true detecting seems to purposely undercut itself in order to prolong things. I'm guessing there's some sinister plot that's hamstringing the hunt too, but the question of "where did the kids go" which is raised in the first 10 seconds of Episode One isn't something that should be circled back to at the end of 3. But well-acted and interesting.

Sex Education had it's moments, but I'm pretty much over 25 year olds playing schoolkids, and then acting like 25 year olds (if immature ones). Production values are better than Porky's, though. Might catch a few more.

Crashing didn't lose a beat. Very funny and real.

High Maintenance is doing a much better job of sustaining things for a full half hour than it did when the transition was originally made. Definitely will follow.
Which part? And who are you?

I figured after the first one or two it was dead. Then again old men get bored with these new fangled things quickly.

Didn't realize it was a ratings hit. I've only watched the first group but so far 1 for 2 on the reveals. And we all know who the peacock is.

In my single viewing, I actually liked that the judges are sitting so far away that they have binoculars.

I have no idea what this means. I also don't really care.

I watched part of one episode with my son who likes it. I don't want to watch anything with Jenny McCarthy in it (unless it is porn).

They revealed who "the Major" was last night Manifest. She was the Special Prosecutor who challenged Underwood in the primary on House of Cards and I think she was President on Homeland too.
