God I've tried to get into the Arrow but alas it is crap/complete gob shite:
resumed watching Allegiance
Only 1 season long, the 6 episodes of HBO's 'The Jinx' was fantastic.
It's based on the true story of Robert Durst and is an ongoing saga.
The last 3 episodes are particularly good
I watched the first and only season of The Messengers. I've read that it had low ratings and will not be renewed. It had at least one plot twist I didn't see coming.
Dark Matter and Killjoys are complementary. DM takes place mostly in space; KJ takes place mostly on a planet's surface.
Now I'm watching Mythbusters. If you've never seen it, never mind. If you have, . . .
Adam says to Jamie, "I'm going to paint you a word picture."
Jamie says "OK. Let me get in my space."
This is a picture of that space.
I just finished watching a BBC series "Happy Valley" that I downloaded a while back. Only 6 episodes in Season 1. Highly recommend
Went back and watched the old 'Mind Your Language' series. Quite hillarious.
Braindead is a bit different.
Vikings, The Last Kingdom, Kingdom, Zoo, Expanse, Ray Donovan, Game of Thrones, Ballers, and The Brink.
Zoo is on my list.
One actress is in Zoo & Grimm.
Dark Matter and Killjoys are shows I started to watch in Lampang. DM is something of a favorite. Maybe the android reminds me of the one North American woman I've ever dated: so knowledgeable yet so often so out of touch with everybody else in the world.
It takes a lot for me to watch a TV series in full. However, 'Happy Valley' is probably going to manage it. Think 'Fargo' but set in the gritty north of England. Really good stuff. Highly-rated, award winning and all that stuff...

I have just completed series 1 and 2 (20 1 hour episodes in all) over the course of Sunday to just a few mins ago ....Narcos. (Netflix production)
I always knew about Pablo Escobar growing up and these 20 hours were a great history lesson, okay a lot of dramatisation and some characters and scenes changed/imagined, but the timeline and key incidents are spot on. Great story too as to what ends the American DEA , CIA, and American politics will go to secure their agenda. To be honest, I knew he was a bad man but you really see what a complete psycho he was attempting to hold onto power (IMO sociopath no, psychopath yes).
Its out there on the usual torrents but I suggest finding S01 and S01 AVI copies as some of the MKV files have issues as reported by others.
Well worth a watch and be ready for a gritty adventure.
BTW, A S03 is slated post Escobar demise, believe focusing on the 'Cali Cartel', but S01 and S02 is a complete story in a nutshell.

I loved Narcos too. Hopefully there will be a third series.
I highly recommend 'Mr Robot' and 'The night of'
I started watching 'Quarry' it looks interesting so far.
Just finished season 2, as for the above;
Wikipedia is always your friend
On September 6, 2016, Netflix renewed the series for a third and fourth season.
