    I love this show. Shit is getting real serious now and I can't wait to see how it all plays out.

    I'm a bit behind on the last few episodes but really liking it so far. I'm shocked that they killed off a character I thought would be a regular in the series.

    Btw, I know you have devoured most of the TV shows out there. Have you tried watching anime or do you watch anime? I recently reconnected with the genre when I started watching Rising of the Shield Hero. After that, I've been binge watching other anime titles. The best thing about not watching it regularly for decades is that I have so much content to keep me occupied.

    I don't watch a lot of anime.

    I recently watched Monster at @Peteyandjia 's urging and really, really enjoyed it.The characters were incredibly good.

    Holy crap, I thought this was the Carnival Row thread and was about to ask what the hell people liked so much.

    As for Pennyworth, Alfred's my favorite character on television right now. I'm not surprised you like him, he'd fit right in as a member of Kingsman.

    I would recommend Rising of the Shield Hero (subbed version of course). It's a not-so-heavy fantasy adventure series with a twist. It's just 25 episodes. I hope you try it.

    Alfred also reminds me of a young Michael Caine due to the accent. It's not exactly the same but I just get a Michael Caine vibe.

    If you ain’t seen’t it, you should definitely watch Mr. In-Between. The first season is I think like 6 short episodes, and I was surprised how good it was. Really fun show.

    I begged everyone to watch this when it first came out.

    Didn't get many nibbles but the few who did, loved it.

    It slows down a bit in the middle but man, what an ending.

    If I watch it with subs, it could take me a long time to get to it.

    Dubbed I'd watch it pretty much straight away.

    I think I would describe it as Breaking Bad meets Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    And I found it both funnier and more violent than either.

    Smart humor & realistic violence really is a fantastic blend in storytelling.

    Thoughts on Carnival Row?

    I watched the first two episodes last night and I really dig it. I was expecting to cringe at Cara's acting but she's actually okay. I like the plotline, I loved the sort of Punch and Judy thing with the little creatures, it's really really good.

    Seems decent from the first few episodes I saw.
