    I will be REALLY happy when people forget about all this zombie nonsense. :D

    What about other shows like anime, scifi or good old fashioned sitcoms?

    I like Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead too. Haven't watched the last two series of the former yet though.

     Naaaah, once Frank Darabont the creator of Walking Dead (and a great Film Director) left after the first season because they cut his budget in half, even tho it was AMC's biggest hit, and after the ABYSMAL and boring second season 2 I said NOPE to the Walking Dead. He had a huge much better vision, this should have been a HBO or Netflix show.

    I liked The Walking Dead enough at the start that I bought the bluray of season 1.
    But after that, I actually find Z Nation is a more interesting and enjoyable zombie series.

    I haven't tried Fear The Walking Dead yet, it's not available on any of the three tv services I'm already paying for.

    Wow, I completely forgot about that series, Harry And The Hendersons was great too. Might have to download those now!

    We're about two series into Friends yet again. Just as we got to the end of series 1, it started on TV again - but we'll stick with the DVDs. Bought the entire set from ebay and they turned out to be pirated. We weren't sure to start with, but by the time we did know for sure, it was too late to do anything (takes a long time to watch 10 series).

    Zombie's will live forever sir!

    As for Anime... I'm a huge Naruto fan.

    Couldn't really get into Naruto or Bleach or that.  Go figure.  I like Anime because of the exaggerated emotions and the transformations.....Even if some of the transformations look painful as hell.  Here is one example from Digimon Season 3.

    ouch!

    I really like the new Voltron series. I was never a lion voltron fan, as a kid I preferred the vehicle team voltron series. But the new one on netflix is really well made.

    The actual robot design, however, I'm not a fan of. The absolute best giant robot design has to be Dix Neuf from the series Aim For The Top 2 (also known as Gun Buster 2 and Die Buster). A giant robot that fights shirtless with a cape, eye patch and chainsaw fist. :)
    (Well, not really an eye patch, but looks like it)

    I've never thought that much about anime tbh. Has never floated my boat. I enjoyed Ghost In The Shell though.

    Watched Altered Carbon series 1 on Netflix. Supports 4K HDR, looks really nice on the TV.



    Trying to finish Black Mirror, only saw the first season so far and random episodes.

    Also been meaning to watch all the Oats Studios shorts, they released on Blu-Ray recently. https://oatsstudios.com/

    Black Mirror is awesome. I love anthology series, particularly sci-fi ones :D

    Yep, I burn through Black Mirror every time they release new content. Great series!

    Of course, I grew up with Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and Monsters!

    Just finished Mr. Mercedes season 1 and am up to date on season 2, it is great - I highly recommend it. I am looking forward to Castle Rock as well - and am about to start season 2 of Ozark which was phenomenal.

    On the cartoon side - I love the new Matt Groening show, Disenchanted. While it is definitely not as funny as Rick & Morty, Final Space, or Bojack Horseman - the animation is fantastic, and I like the characters plus it just feels like Futurama even though the writing in the first season is not as sharp.

    Also looking forward to starting the new seasons of Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

    @Zenbane - I loved the Outer Limits growing up, one of my favourite shows.

    One thing I really like about re-watching these old shows, is being able to recognize the early origins of certain characters.

    For example, Seadon 1 Episode 5 of Tales From the Darkside is called, The Odds. The creepy guy in this episode is Tom noonan, who also played an awesome freak in Manhunter (the original Hannibal Lecture / Red Dragon film).

    Yup, I rewatch all of these programmes again every few years. Other great anthology series are Science Fiction Theater, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Alfred Hour, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Tales Of The Unexpected and Night Gallery.

    Tales from the Crypt could use a reboot.
