        I am a big scifi fan. Right now watching Incorporated, The Librarians and Grimm. Sherlock just finished. I also like Blackish and Life in Pieces. Adam Ruins Everything and Daily Show for some intellectual humor. And as a big anime buff, right now I'm watching Naruto Shipuden with the kids. However, I usually am doing some type of work while watching. Can't spare time to just sit down and watch TV. Incorporated and Sherlock are probably the only shows I actually sit down and watch.

          The man in the high castle. It's decent, but the verdict is still out for me. If my wife wasn't into it, I can't say I'd be pressed to watch another episode. We have different tastes so we often watch what one likes and the other tolerates.

          Speaking of anime, I couldn't get into naruto. What I did just watch and really enjoy is the second season of Aijin. That's the kind of stuff I watch by myself.

            You're an anime fan too? I didn't know that. Naruto is good to watch with the kids. Interesting enough for me but kid friendly. I've never heard of Aijin but it looks like something totally up my alley. I like action, supernatural and scifi stuff that have complex stories and isn't so black and white about good and evil. Some of my favorites are Fullmetal Alchemist, Blood+, Speed Grapher, Samurai Champloo, Ergo Proxy, Moribito. I usually have a series I'm watching on my own and one I'm watching with the kids. Unfortunately my husband won't even try to watch it with me

              Some of my favorite shows of all time are anime. My wife doesn't care for them at all, but I was shocked when she came in and watched a few episodes of Sword Art Online with me a few months ago. I don't think it's a coincidence that it was in a sappy, emotional lull in the second season that I thought was the worst point of the series. She was surprised that a cartoon had that much heart and depth. Gave me a small sense of vindication.

              I saw all of the new FMA: Brotherhood and I believe I saw Blood+. I watched some of Samurai Champloo, but couldn't get into it. I've heard of Ergo Proxy and Moribito, but haven't checked them out. I'll take a look.

              If you like supernatural, sci-fi type stuff, Aijin is awesome. Death Note, Claymore, Hunter X Hunter (2011), and Parasyte are also very strange, but outstanding. Some of the themes and scenes in Death Note and Hunter X Hunter are what comes to mind when I think of the greatest art I've ever experienced. I've never seen anything comparable. Definitely not for the kids.

                If your wife is willing to try, watch Basilisk. It has a total romantic element with lots of action and monsters too. One of my favorites. InuYahsa is another one with a romantic component. I liked it a lot but wouldn't say its on my top favorite list.

                  I've actually seen Moribito, Basilisk, and the first few episodes of Inuyahsa. I stopped watching InuYahsa for some reason, but can't remember. I think I may have just gotten busy and forgot about it.

                  Ergo Proxy has been in my DVD queue since October 2014, so I had looked into at at some point. I'll push it forward.

                    I watch very little TV. I have Netflix for times I wanna stare at the TV and zone out. Usually investigation shows.

                    One of the students who lived with me was into Naruto. I couldn't stand it. The sound of his constant shouting to me was so distracting.
                    I actually saw the first few episodes of Death Note tho. Very good. I could have watched that.

                        The kids are amazing and Gordon Ramsey put on an amazing display of cooking.
