Will finish Stranger Things tomorrow night, but I wanted to plug American Vandal on Netflix. Quite a brilliant piece of work and consistently funny.

    All caught up on The Orville. Anyone else watching?
    I've been watching, really liking it. The humor is hit or miss, but it's really reminding me of Star Trek: TNG so that makes me happy.

    Repeats of the legal series Shark are now showing on British TV. I didn't even know there was a second season! But James Woods is a terrific actor, hugely watchable. The late Bette Davis, not long before she passed, called him "the new James Cagney," and she was right.

    Just finished American Vandal & thought it was pretty funny and well done.

    I just started Alias Grace based on Margaret Atwood's novel on Netflix and I'm really getting into it.

    I finished watching the new Season 8 of Doc Martin on Acorn streaming. It was a good series (i didn't care much for S5, which included their wedding in the 1st episode). I watched a behind the scenes episode at the end. Part of that was about all the fans who come and watch them filming. Almost every one that they interviewed was American.

    Goodness, I didn't realize Doc Martin was still going. I've been procrastinating about signing up for Acorn but now it's time.

    Yes, I look forward to each new series of Doc Martin. I enjoy the wonderful ensemble cast. Acorn also have the two prequel movies that introduced the character, albeit in a much different form. Did you know that the co-creator of Doc Martin character was Craig Ferguson? The Doc was first seen in the movie Saving Grace as Dr Martin Bamford.

    If you subscribe to Acorn, check out the Agatha Raisin and the Brokenwood Mystery series, as well as a number of others.

    I did see one of the movies but I can't recall the name. Doc Martin was an entirely different character and ended up in Portwen for an entirely different reason. I didn't know there was another prequel movie. I sure have a lot of catching up to do.

    I'm binge-watching the new (and final) season of Longmire. I'll probably start spacing them out soon though, to avoid running out too soon.  :)

    Man in the High Castle. Pretty interesting so far.

    Yesterday I finished binging on Wycliffe, a British detective series I found on BritBox. It ran five seasons back in the 1990s. I was afraid that it was going to end on a cliff-hanger, as I read that late in the final season the star of the show said he wasn't interested in another season, protesting the producers having fired one of the second leads who was in the hospital with meningitis.

    Fortunately it ended with everything wrapped up satisfactorily, although it seemed as though they may have rewritten/added the last minute or so to provide closure (although not quite as tacked-on as was the case in Castle).

    All in all, very enjoyable. It might be a bit low-key for some.

    As I read "added the last minute" I immediately thought of Castle.

    Watching The Marvelous Mrs. Meisel from Amazon Studios.

    The language is terrible (Lenny Bruce is one of the characters) but mostly during Midge's comedy routines and there is some nudity but it's set in the early 60's and I'm enjoying that very much. There's a Kingston Trio (not named but three guys, three guitars and the striped shirts), The Smother's Brothers (again, not named but obvious). The guy who did a Red Skelton schtick didn't get Skelton's rhythm or tone but that's a minor complaint.

    Midge's mother and father (Marin Hinkle and Tony Shaloub) are fabulous as is the rest of the cast. Rachel Brosnahan as Midge is perfect.

    I started watching Man in the High Castle while we were traveling--I could get episodes from Amazon while in England.  Finished it after I got home.  Can't wait to see what happens next.

    Finished Longmire.  Sad to see it end.

    Binging on Broadchurch right now.

    I watched The Crown, S2, over 4 nights this week. Loved it. It's been a topic of conversation at work and even my brother Stan is watching it. The last episode was partly about the PM MacMillan resigning over the Profumo/Christine Keeler scandal. I remember this when it was in the Daily News for days (or weeks -- it was so long ago).

    I might watch the new season of Broadchurch next.

    Might re-watch Downton Abbey again soon. Saw the exhibition this week that had dresses, men's clothes, jewelry, hats, large screen videos and recreation of a few sets -- servants hall, Carson's pantry and desk, the upstairs dining room and Mary's bedroom.  It is in my zip code until January 31st. Other cities have not been announced yet. I think it started in Singapore earlier in the year.

    Finishing up a re-watch binge of Star Trek (original series). And the latest season of Drunk History. Next up will likely be Godless, then on to rewatches of either Star Trek: Enterprise or Star Trek: Voyager.

    I started binge-watching Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda yesterday on the Roku channel. IIRC, it was OK until the 3rd or 4th season, where it just fell apart and got lost. I'll probably watch it until then.

    I just binge watched The Marvelous Mrs. Meisel this week!  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I did standup for about a year and they nailed the world and its challenges.

    I still regret that this series only went the one season. I thought it had a lot of potential. I dig out the DVDs and watch them every so often.

    PENNY DREADFUL. Got the box set from Santa, and had only seen the 1st series previously, so started from the beginning last night. I love it. Eva Green is luminous in it, and Timothy Dalton's grizzled old explorer turn is wonderful.

    I just finished Devilman Crybaby on Netflix, which was violent and disturbing and extraordinarily depressing in the end. I liked it!  ;D

    Currently watching the new series of The Detectorists on Acorn. Acorn produced the six-episode series, so it won't be anywhere else. At least for a while.
