I wouldn't have minded the X-Files exhumation (it's not a reboot until they start a new series w/ Miller & Einstein) if they ended it last week. I really liked the were-human episode.

And, IMO, what he did afterward could be argued as not 'fabricating evidence', merely making an example video for the police. amirite?

Yeah, technically not a reboot yet. I'd mistakenly assumed the introduction of Miller and Einstein was the direction they were going, which would be a huge mistake. The actor playing Miller is okay, but I can't remember the actress playing Einstein half an hour after the show is over. They lack the chemistry that made Monica Reyes and John Doggett viable replacements for Mulder and Scully.

Episode 6 was annoying because the confrontation between Smoking Man and Mulder was just a tired rehash of the same arguments those two had almost 20 years ago. At some point Mulder needs to say "Screw you, you're not my dad and your end game babble is stupid", shoot him in the nuts and put an end to it. Better yet, like Monica shoot him in the nuts. I mean, sure, in real life those family squabbles do tend to repeat themselves indefinitely. But it makes for boring TV.

I watched it when it first aired on TV. Loved the show...minus the James Hurley character.

'the owls are not what they seem'

Just finished season 2 of 'Bosch'...outstanding.

Started watching "Rome" on Amazon Prime, although it was a HBO/BBC production. I like this period of history and was a fan of the old I, Claudius series. Rome seems like such a contrast to I, Claudius. So much has changed in production values with CGI etc. I'd give it a 8/10 so far.

Detectorists on our local PBS affiliate. What an absolutely charming show about nothing. The humor is so subtle and sly, it's a refreshing change from even the American comedies I do like, which all tend to clobber the viewer over the head with jokes. Show creator, director, writer and actor Mackenzie Crook may have mastered the art of intentional bathos, if there is such a thing. He subtly nudges each situation toward the sublime, then deliberately pulls the rug just askew, causing the characters to stumble a bit, to avoid any neat, pat resolutions.

Finished watching Rome. I think I liked the first season better with Julius Caesar around. I might knock it down to 7/10 just because it got a little soap opera-ish.

Rewatching Babylon 5. I haven't seen it in years. I think the story holds up well. Maybe one of the few TV shows that had a story lines running through multiple seasons (i.e. something said in season 1 pays off in season 4). Also one of the first TV shows to go all CGI for effects. Sometimes it looks a little dated. I'd give it a 8/10.

I agree. I just watched the first two episodes this week on demand. So far so good.

I have been following The Walking Dead (8/10) since the beginning and I'm looking forward to season 7 this coming October.

^+1. I've been binge-watching Fear the Walking Dead this week and am coming around. I wasn't a fan initially but it's growing on me.

We are really digging Braindead right now. My wife is not a fan of the ear-entering brain-eating space bugs but she can tell when to look away.

I finished season 1 last night. Definitely liked it a lot. Unfortunately yes I did like Caesar a lot, will miss him.

This is the 1st time I've bingewatched through streaming, love it, one episode ends, the next one starts, and on it goes...

edit: although at this pace I have to wonder if even 2 seasons will get it through Shakespeare's play.

Season 2 crams in much more. I think they expected more seasons and found out it was ending so they had to wrap up some story lines quickly.

I posted in the "What have you read recently" thread...I was inspired to read some history of this period. The series not entirely accurate, but enjoyable.

Rewatched Band of Brothers. 9/10. Started rewatching The Pacific. If I remember correctly much more brutal representation or war vs. Band of Brothers. I remember feeling a little disturbed by it. I'll have to see how it impresses me this time.
