Good idea, I'm thinking of using this thread as some kind of main page for sharing ideas, deciding on future tv-shows, etc. I will make another thread for the show itself and make a comment for each episode as you suggested.

I saw this show a while back, but I couldn't vibe with it. I like the idea of a viewing party, but I would sit out breaking bad personally and/or vote for another.

What would you be interested in watching? We might manage to have a few viewing party running, it would also hopefully bring more people to participate.

Hmm, I haven't actually watched that much television, so maybe I'm not the best to ask for finding new or interesting series. I've seen some shows, but I can't stand live stuff mostly and just end up sticking to animated artwork. I'm fairly biased to this form as I have been interested in animation and illustration. That's not to say that I hate all live drama, especially since animation takes up a ton of space in live action television drama, just that seeing some so-called "barbarian" living in a dirty hovel looking like a pristinely manicured bougie with a row of "perfect" white teeth smothered in makeup breakes the believability of the film for me. Hand drawn artwork speaks to me with something more symbolic than a reality watercolored by prolific capitalist industries' view of "real" humans. Buuut I think I'm rambling now.. I guess I'm suggesting "Adventure Time" studio Ghibli movies, I haven't seen "Steven Universe" but I hear good things.

If animation is not anyone's thing, maybe "Westworld"? I've seen most of the first season, excluding the last two episodes, or maybe some other popular show..."Black Mirror"?

I would say that animation is also victim of society's problem, but I understand what you mean. Someone suggested movies, and it could work but once a movie is done there is a small discussion and then it's over while a series can be discuss per episode. But if someone want to start one with films that could be cool. I usually save a bunch of horror films for a week of halloween so I definitely will share what I will watch and if someone want to join along that could be fun. Or we could simply make a list of everyones suggestions or something.

For TV series I would be in for Black Mirror, i've only seen season 1, maybe a part of season 2 I can't remember.

Does the anime section include around the world animation or just japanese stuff? Animated films and tv series could be a better fit there. I would be willing to participate if it's something that interests me.
