Damages!  That was a wild ride.  Definitely dark.  Off to check out "Last Tango in Halifax."

    During a recent long, out-of-town job, I had hotel high speed internet; through PRIME, I watched the entire "FRINGE" series and caught up on "JUSTIFIED".  Both great !!

    Now home, I have the "LOST" series in the Blu-Ray player

    Justified is FANTASTIC!!!

    Absolutely LOVED Justified.  Just got my brother hooked on it.

    I recently spent a few days watching all three seasons of Deadwood. I rather enjoyed it, but I can't figure out the timeline on it. It seems like it either all happened in the summer, or they completely skipped over the winters.  And it's set in, you know. Deadwood, so you'd definitely know when it was winter.
    Lay of Runes is a non-sequential series that can be read in any order.  Each story is both self-contained, and part of the larger shared continuity within the series.  Join giants and dwarfs, heroes and gods, and everyone in between as their adventures take them across the Nine Realms of Yggdrasil.

    Just finished six seasons of Parks And Recreation. Recently watched all of the Fast And The Furious movies as well as the Transporter movies. Tried to rewatch Lost, but couldn't get past the first season for some reason. Just not into it right now I guess. Up next I'm thinking one of the following...

    Dexter, some Xena, the Marvel Universe movies, or a "newer" James Bond mini marathon starting with Timothy Dalton.

    I started watchung Justified because I had binge-watched Deadwood.  I was looking for more with the same lead.  You'll see several of the same actors in it....

    When Deadwood became available on Prime, because I loved T.O. in Justified so much, I decided to watch Deadwood. I don't think I completed the first episode because his character seems so very different. Might have to give it another go, though (I had to start / re-start both Sons of Anarchy & Breaking Bad a couple of times before I got into them).

    Last Tango is delightful. No guns, guts, or gore.

    Yes "Damages" was the Glenn Close series. She was fantastic in that.

    I just recently binge watched every season of Game of Thrones.  I am now so ready for the newest season coming out in April.  I am also toying with re-watching Outlander prior to the second half release in April.

    I started binging on The Americans. I was up until 1:30 AM. I've watched the first five of season one, so I have a lot to go. Good show.

    I enjoyed Last Tango in Halifax a lot when it aired on PBS.  A new season aired in the UK recently (or a few months ago?), so we will have that some time this year.

    I watched 3 episodes of House of Cards last night and one today while using the exercise bike.  I cannot resist this series, but  are so evil.  I'm watching the last episode of S5 of Downton Abbey, my favorite.  So elevating after watching House of Cards, but more episodes of H of C await.

    I cannot binge-watch as much as I did a few years ago while doing occasional temp work.  That was how I watched Doc Martin two years ago.  I never knew whether or not there would be work the next day (2nd shift . . . I told the agencies I could only do day shift if I knew the night before and they never knew of work until the moment that I was needed).

    I started watching "The Fall" yesterday, and watched the first 3 episodes, so I guess I liked it.

    I binge-watched Fortitude the last few days. Five episodes. I think there are 10 altogether.

    I just wish I knew what in tarnation was going on. I haven't been this clueless since Twin Peaks:-\

    My wife and I are finally getting around to watching the various seasons of Game of Thrones thanks to the HBO Go app. Of course, we also just finished bingeing the latest season of House of Cards. Man, I love that show.

    I finished watching House of Cards (S3) last night.  Glad to be finished.  Ending was meh.  Much of it was good, but since Underwood has been president the show has gone down, in my opinion. Ending was very abrupt and done poorly.  Nothing that exciting at the end.  Just a set-up for the next season.

    I don't normally watch TV shows but I fell in love with Penny Dreadful. The costumes are to die for :) What I like most is the obvious enthusiasm of the actors. They just make it work. Especially Eva Green - she is totally enjoying every second of it!  I hope they will keep it up.

    On Wednesdays, which happens to be one of the two days a week I work from home, they have Supernatural from 10am to 8pm and they've been playing themed fan favorites lately. It makes me very happy to have that on in the background.  If a meeting goes awry, I just need to look up and sigh at the testosterone fest on television and all is right with my world. :)

    I keep saying I need to get the Breaking Bad series because I haven't seen it and have been told it is fantastic. But I haven't yet.

    The last thing hubby and I binge-watched was Shameless and now we are caught up waiting week to week for new episodes. 

    I binge watched Dexter when we went to digital cable and got all the bells and whistles with it.

    Property Brothers. I am obsessed with HGTV.

    Love Jonathan and Drew. They are a couple of interesting guys. Unfortunately, I only get three seasons on Netflix. Hoping for more.

    Right now, I'm binging on Project Runway. I watched Season 8 & 9 and now I'm on Season 10. And I watched all four seasons of All-Stars before starting the regular seasons.
