I forgot so many details. Towards the end of S4. How both Gus and Walter manipulate Jesse.

I think the writing and direction gets more bold as it progresses.

Generally speaking, seasons get more intense towards the end. Season 4 in this ends with a bang and S5 starts right where it left off.

Re watching it a year after the first time round it seemed so lame because you knew what was going to happen. It didn't feel like it had aged well at all .

Initially, I binging it to get caught up because the S5 finale hype was real. It was in news and UK viewers were desperate fomo's.

I think time has been a factor in this one. Imo can't watch it back to back like other exceptional tv shows.. Some other stuff I've watched twice in the space of this.

Breaking Bad isn't great to rewatch unless you just cherry pick episodes, otherwise you're sitting through endless Skyler, Marie etc fucking dribble 
The plots are very contrived to create tension which is amazing the first time but diminishes each time you watch it

i think part of what i enjoyed about it so much at the time was the build-up to watching it every week and then all the chat and analysis of every little detail afterwards. i used to think about it quite a lot in between episodes, not many shows have ever really done that
 
i will watch it all again one day but it won't be the same binging it. some shows are meant to be consumed quickly, others deserve to be left to breathe imo

It must be amazing then with a recommendation like that from the man who likes nothing.

So I've started watching the new series of Ray Donovan (Season 6) and Shameless US. (Season 9). 
 
Possibly should be in the guilty pleasures thread but fuck it. The plot lines are a bit contrived after 6 and 9 seasons respectively. I was determined to hate the US remake of shameless but actually enjoy it. It's a bit trashy and makes a break from the super bleak, dark depressing documentaries and other TV I normally reach for. Also chick who plays Fiona is fit as fuck. 
 
Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) is about an LA fixer type character who fixes problems for celebrities. Normally he's a family man and not quite your normal gangster. 
 
Ray Donovan - 8/10 
Shameless US - 8.5/10

It’s alright but nothing like as good as The Night Manager.

Shannon is sick though standardly.

haunting on hill house was ok. a few strong episodes in the middle but i didn't like the end one bit. 
 
interesting read here with the showrunner: https://www.thrillist.com/entertainment/nation/haunting-of-hill-house-ending-explained-mike-flanagan-interview including a idea for the final episode that i was sort of expecting, that would've made it much stronger imo. not going into specifics in case of spoilers...

New Black Mirror is out, a 90 minute long interactive, choose your own adventure style episode.
 
Haven't seen it yet, but will do at some point over the weekend. Hoping it works on my TV.
