I've been watching "Quarry" about a returning Vietnam vet caught up in a hit man syndicate. Lots of intrigue with his beautiful wife. In spite of the theme, doesn't include too much violence

I'm just starting to rewatch the first season after getting about 2/3 of the way through the first time. Kinda takes paying attention-to which can get a little mind-numbing after a while ;-)

Looking forward to season 2 ...

I'll have to add Designated Survivor to the watch pile -- I like Keifer, although I wish he would try something other than espionage/techno-thrillers ...

I agree 100%.

Mr Robot is the only tv that I've ever used closed captioning for. blush I found the dialog is really dense with hacker slang and code-writer's jargon. I'd never understand half of what was being said. Closed caption text actually made it better. Who knew?

[as a side note to this, AppleTV allows me to completely customize the text displayed on the screen so it's easy to minimize it so it's not intrusive.]

[side note #2. I lied, I actually used closed caption another time to watch The Revenant. That dialog was not English, it was some garbled, drunken 1800s bear-mauled version of "English"]

The fourth episode was pretty tense. So far, I really like it. But if he turns it into another '24' — I'm out.
