I liked Constantine thought it had some good potential. I guess it did not get good viewing figures and thats why it was cancelled. So I was surpised to see Constantine in the latest episode of Arrow. As you say its from the universe but not sure why they used that character it would have been better using him while the series was still active.

From my understanding they were planning to use him while Constantine was still going that's why Oliver said call me if you need anything, the plans was to have Oliver on Constantine but NBC ended the show at the last minute.

Finished up Jessica Jones last night! Out of all the MCU Netflix series, this is the one I was least hyped for, but it proved me wrong, as it was a fantastic watch.

I guess it's back to just anime until Netflix releases season 2 of Marco Polo. I do wish we had Amazon Prime though, as The Man in the High Castle looks interesting.

@RR529: I still have to see Jessica Jones but that's mainly cause like you I am not hyped for it. Maybe though I should check it alot since alot of people I have talked too have said the same thing as you.

Has anyone here watched Community? It's pretty much the most intelligent, obscure comedy I've ever watched, and it's pretty amazing - except for season 4. The first 5 seasons are on Netflix, so you should probably give it a try

Yeah watched Community but not seen the latest series as it was on the Sony Channel and its the one I watch least so will catch it on dvd. I must admit I like the earlier series more and have not enjoyed it as much since chevy chase left the series. Its still really funny though.

Anyone watching The Bridge 3? Really enjoy this drama and really feel the pain of the main detective she plays the role so well. The latest episode was moving and well paced.

If anyone is in the UK then channel 4 have just put online a lot of foreign dramas from different countries some of them look good so might be worth a watch.

Just saw that X-files and the flash/arrow spin off will be on Channel 5 in the UK. I am glad they have been picked up. Not sure about which channel will get Heroes Reborn. Looking forward to seeing that as I enjoyed the original series even though it had its ups and downs.

Finally started watching Parks and Recreation with my GF after lots of recommendations. We're enjoying it, and it is funny, but not really laugh-out-loud funny. I think we're a few episodes into the second season. Like a lot of American sitcoms, I find it quite addictive to watch - it's like snack food for the brain. I've been told it gets better as it goes along, so we'll see where it goes.

Started watching Atelier last night.

It's Netflix's first Japanese produced original series, and centers around a young woman who gets her dream job of working at an upscale lingerie shop in Tokyo.

Theme wise it's something I'd normally not be interested in, but I figured I'd give it a try because if it gets enough support, maybe they'll produce more Japanese originals (maybe even a Samurai or Yakuza drama, which I'd be really interested in). I'm glad I did give a shot, because I actually kind of like it. I like the way the camera moves/feels (has that so obvious this is a TV show feel look, if that makes sense), and I've actually found some of the character interaction to be humorous.

The Man in the High Castle is a good show if you have Amazon Prime also Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks. Really loved Halt and Catch Fire about computing in the 80's.

Tried watching Black Sails just could not get into it.

Right now I am binging on Undercover Boss. I am not the biggest fan of reality shows but for some reason this one has me hooked.

Finished up Atelier (Netflix Original) this afternoon.

Despite the fact that the theme didn't really appeal to me (a young fabric loving woman making her way in the world of upscale lingerie sales), the character interaction was great (it's really a show where it's the character chemistry is what keeps you coming back), and once it had me, some of the plot shakeups late in the season really grabbed my attention. Also, I absolutely love how bright & clean everything looks (the camera moves in a way where you can tell it's a TV show, if that makes sense at all, and I sort of like that feel). It wrapped up really nicely in the finale, in a way that's both open to continuation, while also being a good conclusion point. I'd probably give a second season a whirl if they were to make it.

For me, it's a solid if not spectacular 3/5 ("Liked it") on the Netflix rating scale, and can only imagine it being higher for anyone actually interested in the theme. (now give us a samurai or yakuza show, Netflix...)
