The best new and returning TV series of 2020?

Post by Bindi »

I'll start with the best pilot I've seen in a long while:

True Detective.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/allenstjohn ... erfection/

Can't believe Matthew McConaughey can actually act. He is superb. Woody Harrelson is pretty good too. Never used to like police procedurals, but The Wire and, lately, Broadchurch and Top of the Lake changed that.


Show I'm most looking forward to returning is:

House of Cards.

It's all going to go to shit for sure (in the same way you always knew Breaking Bad would), but it should be awesome watching.

Haniball for me. Series one was awesome.

Also looking forward to more comical police ineptitude and hammy acting in series two of The Following, which starts tomorrow night in the UK

Not sure if you have noticed..The bridge is back on the tele ..series two.

Very good too.

She is back with added nutbar.

There is something extremely mental about that woman that goes way beyond aspergers.

She is like a mental Sandra Bullock.

Episode six you get to see he wanking on her side (for added weirdness) looking at her sleeping boyfriend too..which is pretty f**king awesome.

James Spader and The Blacklist Series 2 will be a cracker.

Sherlock series 4 will hopefully have more than 3 episodes.

Game of Thrones looking forward to. Hopefully no leaks will happen :lol:

Into the second episode of The Blacklist Season 2 at the moment. Very good. I enjoyed Reds revenge trip of the first ep.

Apart from the usual suspects (GOT, TWD etc) my pick would be Vikings S2. Also looking forward to Klondike.

When he's not in romcoms he's excellent, favourite for Best Actor oscar this year.

Community and Justified so far.

House of Cards, um, no ... underwhelmed big time, had pretensions at being great TV but just came across like that guy in your class who tries to hard to fit in.

Orphan Black is another.

If you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favor, get the box-set and book yourself an evening to block-watch it before Season 2 starts.

Think Netflix are streaming House Of Cards in Ultra HD (4k) for those who have the teles and want some ultra HD content.
You probably need about 10 mb internt though.

Netflix intend to stream much more 4k content too I believe.
Ps) Before anyone goes mad I dont have either..Netflix, a 4K Tele or 10 mb internet.
Just something I heard watching Revisions 3s HD Nation.

Community's been great since the start of Season 5. Harmon's back calling the shots and it already feels like season 2/3.
Spoiler: show
Doubly appropriate send-off for Pierce, having the gang go at each other, but then leaving them with touching messages which reminded us that at times he was a good guy ... and then explaining how he died! :lol:
Loving the Archer 're-boot'.

Is True Detective a "case of the week" cop show or an on going long story? I can't stand the former.

True Detective is ace. I thought it might be just a standard police procedural with slightly better cinematography but it's going in all kinds of unexpected directions after just two episodes.

What the fudge happened to Matthew McConaughey? Did someone just tell him that didn't actually have to be such a douche?

Pete fluctuates so much between being a slimy little toad and an actually sympathetic character that you half hope he doesn't go off the deep end by the finale.

I'm interested in seeing what Draper does post-SCDP. I hope he sets up a modelling agency and bangs every single one of them. :thumbup:

Since when did youtube get assimilated by youporn?!

Not that I'm complaining. I'm trying to find the girlfriend a show to fill the void that was left by Breaking Bad. We've tried Boardwalk Empire, but it left her cold. Banshee is decent - we both like it. I've got my fingers crossed for True Detective. Justified does not do it for her - which is good because I don't want to sit through 4 seasons of it again.

Anything contemporary or non-sci-fi or fantasy and gritty that is "believable" is the basic criteria. I'll give the Bridge a go and try the Blacklist. Unfortunately most TV series that are from network television don't really go over well with us.

I'm most looking forward to The Strain. Some kind of vampires in New York thing; sounds kind of lame, but Guillermo del Toro is an executive producer, directed the pilot, and co-wrote the book it's based on. Should be equal parts disgusting and excellent.

The new Barbarella series could go either way. Amazon are funding it. There's also talk of Netflix being the home of Ron Howards The Dark Tower series, which they sound like they could be putting serious money into.
