Just finished watching Chicago Med. Looking now for another interesting series. I only ever watched a few episodes of Chicago Fire and Chicago P. D. Might try and see if one of those peaks my interest.
I like Chicago PD. I had wondered if there was a parallel hospital series, as the characters in the hospital seemed rather well fleshed-out for incidentals.

There is now Chicago Justice as well.

Oh wow. I didn't even know about Chicago Justice. I'll give Chicago P. D. a try. I'll start with season 1 so I can get familiar with the characters. I found about the series first with Chicago Fire but could never stay woke long enough to watch it. I like it because the characters do mingle and interact with one another between shows.

Dont get too excited about Chicago Justice - there were only only 13 episodes.

Pride and Prejudice - the BBC mini-series with Elizabeth Garvie and David Rintoul. I loved Colin Firth in the movie adaptation, but of all the actors who have played Mr. Darcy, David Rintoul comes the closest to how I imagined Darcy would look when I originally read the book.

I have not seen this version. Is it available on one of the streaming services, like Netflix or Amazon Prime?

The Jennifer Ehle/Colin Firth version was a TV mini-series (1995). The movie (2005) has Keira Knightly and Matthew MacFadyen.

Another one that aired on PBS (2014):

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3775780/?ref_=nv_sr_8

My favorite is the 1995 version with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. The 2005 movie was quite good though.

Recently watched Grace & Frankie season 3 and both seasons of Master of None (Aziz Ansari). I watched most of S1 of Portlandia, but I've had enough of that. So silly! I watched 2 nights in a row and liked how the 1st night it made me sleepy so that I got to bed a few hours early. I am still on night schedule and staying up ridiculously late after years of working nights. Retired now.

I'm almost at the end of a binge re-watch of Limitless, the TV spin-off of the 2011 Bradley Cooper movie. The series is a sequel to that story, following the fortunes of a young slacker -- Brian Finch -- whose life is going nowhere till he comes across a pill called NZT that turns him into a genius for 12 hours. It's a comedy-thriller with a fair sized dollop of science fiction thrown in, and a very good and inventive one too. But the show's main asset is the actor who plays Finch, a certain Jake McDorman, who puts in a performance that is sharp, engaging, and -- when required -- hilariously funny.

And guess what, folks? Like almost any TV show that is original and clever, it got cancelled after just one season. What a world we live in!
My new crime novel THE TRIBE is now out from Cemetery Dance Publications. And there are now 6 Novels in my Raine's Landing supernatural thriller series, with a seventh on the way.

The only binge-watching my wife and I have ever really done was 'Breaking Bad.' I had heard about it, didn't see it when it was in production. One lazy summer night a couple of years ago, we were browsing Netflix and decided to give it a try. We figured five or six episodes would be enough to decide.

Halfway through Episode 1, we were all in. We spent the rest of the summer watching the entire series.

I checked the Elizabeth Garvie/David Rintoul version of Pride and Prejudice out of my local library, but it is available on both Netflix and Amazon:

Instead of Bloodline's second season, we finally started Stranger Things. LOVE! Reminds my husband and me of Poltergeist (best watched for the first time in the 1980s.)

I just binge-watched Future Man. It was kinda funny but also insanely over the top.

Altered Carbon. The story is rather diluted - not too many plot ideas, so the series uses all that tedious graphic violence and nudity as the usual "stuffing". But it is visually stunning, and the actors are very good. They would deserve better dialogs :)

I'm into another re-watch binge on Netflix here.

AQUARIUS has David Duchovny as an LA homicide detective who runs across the Manson Family a couple of months before the Sharon Tate murders. It's not for the squeamish, and very definitely not for the prudish, but it's a fine, intelligent drama with some excellent performances. Duchovny is (as ever) good value, giving us a plainclothes cop who is a tougher, tireder, darker version of Fox Mulder. And set in 1967 as this series is, it's worth checking out simply for the soundtrack. 
My new crime novel THE TRIBE is now out from Cemetery Dance Publications. And there are now 6 Novels in my Raine's Landing supernatural thriller series, with a seventh on the way.

I was just in this great bookstore in Long Island, Turn of the Corkscrew Books & Wine, and a customer and two of the store's workers were talking about The Alienist on TNT. They were so excited about it I started it last night. Good so far!

The Frankenstein Chronicles. Nicely done but soooo incredibly gloomy. I am not sure how long I could watch all those horrors. Poor Sean Bean, I wish he could play someone happy and fortunate for a change  :)

I have watched 6 of 10 episodes of the new season of Mozart in the Jungle. Not crazy about this season's plot line, but I will eventually watch the rest of it.

I watched Broadchurch series 3 on netflix a few weeks ago.
