My buddy is a firefighter in Slave Lake and unfortunately we haven’t talked much since he moved up there. Well I find out he’s in a Discovery Channel series called Hellfire Heroes. I watched the first episode and he’s acting chief as his crew battles a nasty trailer fire. Pretty cool!

I envy the wild ride you're in for. Fargo is one of those rare anthology series where each season is incredible and you have a difficult time picking a favorite.

I have three more episodes and I'm caught up on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. I had expected this to be a good show to have on in the background, but it's pretty engrossing. I'm surprised how much I like this show, and fear the withdrawal now that I can't binge it any longer. It also really helped flesh out the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Would definitely recommend. First 5 seasons are available to stream on Crave.

Going to try Agent Carter next, though it's only 2 seasons.

Fargo was brilliant. I found Season 3 took me a little longer to get into but well worth it.

I've re-watched the scene in the bowling alley dozens of times. Everything about it is absolutely brilliant.

We finally broke down and started The Wire.

The first couple of episodes didn't grab me. Now we are deeper into season 1 it is worthwhile.

I really enjoy Omar.

I know a lot of people that say the same.
You're in for a ride - it's my all time favourite TV show.

Broad City is pretty hilarious. I thought it might just be another 'chick flick', but not really. If you need a raunchy comedy, this one is pretty good. Tons of lol moments.

Some of their fights were epic. Particularly Sammy and Ronnie

Carter is terrific, was very sad it wasn't on longer.

My wife and I have been binging What We Do In The Shadows tonight. It's as good or better than the movie. I thought the concept would be limited but they've expanded the universe and it's great.

Everyone should pause whatever they are watching and switch to The Boys. It’s better than half the marvel flicks.

The Boys is the best comic book adaptation to hit the movies or tv ever! It's actually better than the comics.

It's really too too bad that PG13 AMC got Preacher and not HBO or Amazon.

Y the Last man is currently filming for FX right now. Hopefully they do it right. I liked that graphic better than Preacher or The Boys!

You'll love Agent Carter, I thought it was a great show, and well acted, It also adds a lot to Agents of Shield.


They also had a stellar episode where they reunited the Howling Commandos from Captain America.


And no Carter and Howard Stark don't fondue.

Oh awesome! I am fully prepared to be disappointed since I thought the comics were great.

Y: The Last Man has all the potential to be a blockbuster show if it's well adapted. I'm definitely excited to check it out whenever it debuts.

This trailer didn’t really grab me, but the cast for this show is amazing so I’m excited to check it out.
