    I’ve watched Last Week Tonight consistently for four years now. It often has unnuanced coverage and I often disagree with it, but I think it does a really good job of breaking down relatively obscure political issues. 

    In the same vein, more recently, I’ve started watching Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj. I think it has a lot of room for improvement—it doesn’t discuss policy prescriptions or advance normative positions too much, dedicating more time to establishing the facts (which people could just look up) and to humor—but it has some gems. I loved the most recent one on hip hop music and streaming. Really well-researched, and the entire piece felt like reading a long Economist article, albeit hilarious.

    I also watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine and One Day at a Time (the 2017–present TV show). Have enjoyed both, they’re very funny, cover real and important issues (Brooklyn Nine-Nine has looked at sexual assault and at racism in the police force so far, and One Day at a Time has had really moving, powerful issues about LGBT identity and undocumented immigration). I don’t really watch anything apart from those now. I did enjoy the most recent Daredevil season, though I could’ve done with less of the action, as well as the OJ Simpson season of American Crime Story.

    These are all great shows.  I also like "Adam Ruins Everything", "The Good Place", and "The Giant Beast" - [LINK]

    My mom watches The Good Place. Truth be told, I was a bit bored by it.

    I don’t actively watch Adam Ruins Everything, but the few CollegeHumor clips of it that I’ve seen have been great.

    Forensic Files- pretty interesting to see all the different ways a person can be forensically linked to a crime.

    Awesome.  I'm a fan of last week tonight myself, the guy is fking hilarious.  I just binged through Star Trek Discovery, which was worth watching for sci fi fans, and I'm catching up on Attack on Titan.  I'm embarrassed to say that I've faithfully watched Supernatural for years which is like teen girl crack and I regularly watch the Colbert and Seth Meyers monologues so I can laugh at Trump on the regular.

    One episode away from finishing Breaking Bad. And every minute of it was TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT. Truly the greatest Western ever made, even if, as some people have pointed out, a lot of the characters are so one-dimensional and stereotypical as to seem downright cartoonish.

    Shows I have watched:
    Cowboy Bebop: Heard it was good and it was good.
    FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Heard it was good and it was good.
    One Punch Man: Watched YouTube videos of clips from the show and it was funny and I watched the show which was actually funny.
    Samurai Champloo: People said it was better than Cowboy Bebop but I disagree. Doesn't mean I didn't like it.
    Neon Genesis Evangelion: Heard it was depressing and now it was is my favourite. 
    Rick and Morty: Heard it was a good and it was good. Just stick to season 1. No point watching the rest.

    Show I want to watch:
    Beserk: Heard it was good.
