    Telly does have a worse case of Sturgeon's Law than usual, though.

    I blew through Season 2 of Jessica Jones in a week. About the same for the 10-episode mini-series The Defenders, which was basically Season 2.5 of Daredevil. I watch too much Netflix. I also DVR like 5 hours of the CW every week.

    Who watched the 10-episode Season 11 of the X-Files?

    No. But I read up in the wikipedia and will see if I can get it via Amazon Prime.

    Final [6th] series of The Americans.

    Excellent. A worthy and very satisfying last series and denouement to a great slab of dramatic and absorbing character-driven works-on-more-than-one-level TV these last few years. A good, hardworking, well written, well plotted, very well acted story. Top notch TV.

    Hulu is now in the middle of Season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale. The series has been picked up for a third season, so you might be waiting a while.
