Love the new theme! I feel right at home, having spent 5 years in HS in these colours. :D But I don't have to put a tie on each time I come here! (yes, girl's private school...)

Bishop Strachan? (Or is my Toronto-centricism showing again.) I went to Havergal.

I also changed the thread topic to "Favourite TV Shows" since we've all de-railed the part about The Leftovers and it's kind of morphing into that sort of a topic.

Super hero shows I really enjoy: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil. On the DC side, Gotham is terrific fun.

Yep same for me, although I haven't (yet) finished Jessica Jones and I need to re-visit Daredevil.  I tried when it first came out and just couldn't get into it but I suspect now I would enjoy it more.

I also watch a few others like Arrow, D.C.'s Legends of Tomorrow (which is probably my current favourite), Flash and SuperGirl.  Oh yes, and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ... wow, there really are a lot of superhero shows currently!

Thanks for the offer Paddy, I don't have those files but GT should have if you want to coordinate with him.  He did the work on the logo and such from the first time around.  I'm just the coder/geek :)

Need to change the dot between mac and discussion in the header to burgundy, though and maybe lighten up the gray used for "discussion" just a little as there isn't a lot of contrast on a dark ground. ;) (if you want to send me the file or tell me the fonts used, I'm happy to do that little task...)

It's on my to-be-watched list. There is a lot of really good stuff out there now - I've thoroughly enjoyed This is Us, The Good Fight (the Good Wife spin-off), Orphan Black, The Americans, Blacklist, Homeland, Happy Valley (UK), Broadchurch (UK), Real Humans (the original Swedish version is wonderful - the UK/US "Humans" is also pretty good). I am totally addicted to Game of Thrones - after swearing I wasn't interested in it, I was in the same room on my computer when my husband started watching it, and it wasn't long before I was completely hooked. We binge-watched our way through all 6 seasons and now await Season 7. My sons have been watching it from day 1 - and were rather amused at me, needless to say. Also on my to-be-watched list are Black Mirror and House of Cards.

My big current faves are The Leftovers and Better Call Saul. If you haven't seen the former, check it out. Storytelling at its best.
