Some other episodes play around with quick edits, some West-Wing-style walk & talk dialog scenes... they're either doing homages to everything they love, or they're losing their grip... I get the feeling the show's about to jump the shark... every episode. But so far it's only gotten better.

Some of the characters are based on real people but aren't actually supposed to be that person (Johnny Mathis, Carol Kaye, Minnie Pearl), some (Lenny Bruce) are named specifically. So that's fun.

matt was tough but festus punked him constantly...

Matt - “Right now I gotta meet the stage.”

Festus - “Matthew that stage ain’t due in for another hour and you know that. Anyway Miss Kitty’s only been away 3 weeks.”

Matt - “Closer to four.”

Festus - “Well she’s just apt not to come back at all. Lotta nice fellas in Wichita you know. And her going to a wedding an all just could be that she-“

Matt - By golly I think you’re worse than ol Suggs. Rub salt in an open wound!”

The novel it's based on (by Philip K. Dick) was a huge fave of mine when I was a kid, so I'm totally biased — but I think this is one of the best things on TV recently. Or ever, maybe. 

If you have even a passing interest in the whole alt-history thing, I'd highly recommend it. 
 
There are some great performances. {spoiler deleted} I put down what I'm doing when Rufus Sewell, DJ Qualls (!), Joel de la Fuente are on. Chief Inspector Kido *shudder*

But I do wonder if life was imitating art down there in Charlottesville.
 

SFW—agree with your take that Man in the High Castle is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. The climax of season 2 was overwhelming. I don't know if Dick's estate/inheritors get any royalties from all the movie adaptations of his novels but if they do they're rolling in it.

Bill—have you checked out Rufus Sewell in the detective series "Zen"? He also does a great turn as Lord Melbourne, Prime Minister and advisor/crush of young Queen Victoria in "Victoria."

That is what I have been hearing.  Very sad the fall from grace that has befallen Jeffrey Tambor, he was so funny too bad he is a douche in real life.

I keep short-listing Tin Star as something to start watching but end up choosing something else. Other people here have praised it as well, so I'm gonna try it. Tim is a brilliant actor—I remember his loathsome character from "Rob Roy" and cheering madly when Rob Roy (Liam Neeson) literally split him in two with a claymore.

This would be a huge list to post, but one of the favorites running series now would be;

Game of Thrones (2011-2019/HBO) | The Dark (2017/Netflix) | Terror (2018/AMC)
Stranger Things (2016/Netflix) | Origin (2018/YouTubeRed) | Mr Robot (2015-2019/USA Network)

I tend to like more foreign, non-US series content more and useally from streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon in that order.

  

I've started season 2 of "Mr. Robot" but found the whole issue of Eliot's sanity, particularly concerning Christian Slater's character, increasingly distracting. It takes away from the anti-capitalistic thrust of the main plot and the suggestion of technology as subversive and destructive. Did this bother you as well? 

If you like non-US stuff, BBC America puts out a lot of great series. I keep pushing "The Hour" (actually iTV, I think, but still) with Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw and Dominic West. Greatgreat actors, brilliant plotting esp. season 1. 

Just watched the first episode of "Mrs. Wilson" on Masterpiece; it only runs for three episodes but the first one is bang-on. The actress Ruth Wilson plays her real-life grandmother who begins to find out disturbing things about her husband shortly after his death. Iain Glen plays the husband. He's great in GoT as Jorah Mormont and as the lead character in "Jack Taylor", a series about a disgraced Irish detective who turns to PI work.

Finally started watching Stranger Things .

After the first 2 episodes, i thought...meh. Reminded me too much of old high school themed horror movies. Which i just don't care for.

But by the end of episode 3, i was hooked. And episode 4 reeled me in hook, line, and sinker.

Love those kids.
