Finished Better Call Saul. Excellent. I'm going to miss Mike.

Watching series 2 of Atypical. I know it's "hollywood autism" and Sam is a "cliche, only half a step away from sheldon" but for a few moments in every episode they nail it. Tears, every time (coming from someone who is on the brink of tears his entire 40s that is not a high bar). I'd almost forgive them for the horrendously awkwardly acted scene where Casey makes friends with her enemy in the posh school. Laying the ground work for her eventual coming out. (spoiler.... hardly).

Agree with most of this. I haven’t read but but a bit of research online would suggest that all that connects it to the book are the character names and the general idea of a haunted house? If it bears such little resemblence to the book they could have called it literally anything else and had a good, original series on their hands but I guess networks don’t want original ideas anymore... everything has to be a remake or adaptation.

One of the better Netflix shows in a while. I don’t see any point in doing a second series but it seems to be successful so it will be milked for all it’s worth.

I finished Haunting of Hill House last night. I thought it was great and I loved how it ended (never read the book, mind you).

Also, apart from a couple of jolts here and there in the first few episodes, it became more intriguing than scary.

The only fault I'd have with it would be that some episodes did drag on a little bit. The ones around

but it wasn't all that bad either.

Best series I've seen in ages.

Just finished haunting of hill house earlier. Blitzed the last 3 episodes tonight. Jesus, it was brilliant. Way better than I expected it to be, after a fairly average couple of opening episodes I thought. The episode Two Storms, think it was episode 6, was so good. Agree with @therealjohnny flapper comment above but had enough in the bank not to hamper my overall opinion of the thing.

I'm halfway through the Haunting of Hill House and really enjoying it, it's been incredibly creepy in parts. I'm finding the actual shocks are becoming less effective as it wears on but the atmosphere through out is fantastic and the family story is really intriguing. Just finished episode 5 last night and it was so good.

The Sinner season 2. Excellent. Creepy murder mystery involving a cult
really? in the market for a new season of something. didn't like the first batch of The Sinner but a creepy murder mystery involving a cult does sound tempting

Hadn't heard about the The Sinner but upon reading up on it I am very intrigued, mainly because Bill Pullman is my #1 10/10 ride or die.

I ended up watching the last few episodes of Fraiser a few weeks ago on Channel 4 and right after the last one they were starting again from the beginning. I'd forgotten how much I used to like it so I've hit record and am really enjoying it all over again.

Also just finished the new Sabrina on Netflix. It wasn't amazing or anything but I will definitely stick with it for the next series. Spoiler alert though - Salem doesn't talk. You'll have to go to YouTube if you want Salem quips.

I'm about half way through, and after initially being like "oh god, why?" after the first episode, I've considerably warmed to it. Its not perfect, but its moody and fun. The Sabrina character is utterly infuriating, but I'm 100% here for Richard Coyle channeling Bela, Michelle Gomez and Tati Gabrielle. As you said, its not amazing, but I'm still watching.
