What was the last non-Trek tv show you watched?

"The Twilight Zone" episode 4.15 "The Incredible World of Horace Ford".

"The Leftovers" episode 2.03.

And "Homeland" episode 1.01. A friend told me he and his entire family is hooked... and since Designated Survivor is currently pausing, I felt I could use a substitute for that kind of show. Don't know what to think of it yet, but I guess it won't be worse. :laugh:

Real Time with Bill Maher

May have to save Doctor Who for tomorrow.   Going to a friend’s birthday gathering tonight.

"Doctor Who" episode 10.10 "The Eaters of Light". An standalone "monster of the week" episode, not very special, but okay IMO.

My wife and I watched "American Gods" episode 1.08. Great season finale, it's really a most intriguing show IMO. I'll definitely check in for season 2 next year!

"Fear the Walking Dead" episode 3.04. A rather boring episode, IMO.

I watched "Better Call Saul" episode 3.10, too. Pretty good as usual, but I don't buy it that Jimmy gives up his million just to make an old lady happy. That's way too moral and sentimental for that character, IMO. Apart from that? Great season finale!

Watched the new "Twin Peaks", episode 3.07. Nice the focus is more on the town again. And Coops story finally takes some pace!

And "The Leftovers" episode 2.05.

The latest Doctor Who...my goodness, what an episode! 

Going to watch it tomorrow; we just came home from a party, so...

But, I’m very much looking forward to it.

I just watched Twin Peaks 3.08, "Gotta Light?"

I don't think I can watch any other TV anymore. The entire medium has been deconstructed.

 

Holy crap. I wish I'd been around for other groundbreaking moments of TV history, like The Best of Both Worlds, or that I'd got my shit together and actually watched The Wire when it aired. I feel that with this new season I'm watching TV history in the making, and this episode was crazy.

I pity anyone for whom tonight's episode was their first exposure to the show.

I too watched "Twin Peaks" Part 8, and it could be the creepiest and most unsettling horror movie of the year!

You make me curious! I'll have to wait until Thursday before the episode is available here.

In the meantime, I watched "Mad Men" episode 5.06.

Don't expect it to make a lick of sense, but man was it creepy and at times downright horrific.  Relies mainly on imagery, but it was very great.

Watched the Master trilogy from the end of Series 3 of Doctor Who, Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords. I don't care what anyone says about how it ends, I love it. Just into the Saxon Master right now.

Floaty-glowing Doctor was, to me, the only wince-able drawback to an otherwise solid three parter. 

The 'savior/messiah' metaphor felt like it was hitting me over the head with a cross.

I just never thought it was as bad as so many say. To me it was fun and silly.
