Binged It’s a Sin this week (fuck watching it on All 4, just recorded them). Wow. What a show. Some of the acting was simply amazing, and done of the stories, based on real events were devastating. I preferred it to Queer as Folk as well.

Is this like when they do spinoffs like CSI:Miami and Law & Order:SVU? 

Almost fucking wept when I saw Mays was in it. In many ways, I'm Nilsen's 13th victim.

He paid for my breakfast once, so I'll not have a word against him.

I’m up to series 7 of The Office. It’s still enjoyable but the decline set in a while back. I’m not surprised when they have to make 300 episode a series and what was with all those 40 minute episodes? As I said it is enjoyable but the inevitable slip in to full scale traditional sitcom along with family ethos and soapy drama takes away more than it gives. I think I miss Holly more than Michael but Kimmy Schmidt and Zach Woods are fine additions. Surprisingly I enjoy Ed Helms as well.

Superstore continues to be brilliant. Now we are into the third season some of the relationships between characters are really taking shape. Still an easy, funny watch. 
 

How To Get Away With Murder continues to be ludicrous but Viola Davis is so good. And Cicely Tyson playing her mum makes for some brilliant scenes. 
 

Staged was excellent. Not a big fan of Sheen and Tennant (The Good Fight aside) but their chemistry is sensational.

Started this as my 'late night going to sleep viewing' on your continued championing and very much enjoying it.

Superstore is justifying our Netflix subscription alone.

It's a good job as well as we've just finished Behind Her Eyes. Trashy ITV weeknight style drama that's obviously building towards a BIG ending that should be mostly obvious to anyone who has taken an A-level film studies class.

Burning through superstore and am currently on season 5. It is easy going, doesn't take itself too seriously and I can't find a weak and/or annoying character yet.

I still chuckle at Mateo being called Matato.

Will be sad when I finish it but it's alleviating dull lockdown evenings.

How good is Superstore for real? I’ve seen a few over the last year or so and assumed it could never ascend the level of King of Queens/Everybody Loves Raymond level of enjoyable shitcom. Also there’s a truly awful looking Kevin James NASCAR sitcom on Netflix, can somebody watch that for me?

It’s a show filled with unbelievable, over the top characters who do silly things that are funny. It’s like a good 90 minute film that isn’t cerebral. It isn’t emotional, you aren’t attached to the characters or their lives. It’s one of those shows that is way better than it should be. 
 

But then I loved Schitts Creek so make of that what you will.

Yeah, I'm sceptical. I feel like at best it might be Schitt's Creek level, i.e. hugely overrated.

I'm wondering if it's one of those 'give it a season and it'll all click' sort of sitcoms. We've tried the first few episodes and my wife's ready to give up on it. I thought about using the Parks & Rec defence and persevering, but does Superstore take that same leap up in quality the longer it goes?
