    I am currently watching two different series: The Saint with Roger Moore, and The Avengers with Patrick MacNee and Diana Rigg.


    Both series are available for free (with ads) via the Tubitv streaming service which I get on my Roku.  They list all of The Saint episodes (~120 eps) and all of The Avengers episodes (~110 eps) with Patrick Macnee, including the early ones with Honor Blackman.

    This should keep me busy for a long time.

    Homecoming

    The new series on Amazon Prime with Julia Roberts and by the creator of Mr. Robot. We have 2 left! Goes quick, just 10 episodes and they are under 40 minutes each, which I love.

    Same here with House of Cards. I miss Spacey's sleaziness, but his missus is no slouch either.

    I finished "The Doctor Blake Mysteries" last week .... three series on Netflix. It's an Australian show, set in a fictional town in Victoria in the early 50s. The Doctor is back in town taking over his father's practice and his position as police surgeon and he just can't keep from doing his own investigations, much to the exasperation of the real police.

    Also found "Death in Paradise" which is about a Scotland Yard detective sent to an island in the Caribbean to solve the murder of the previous detective inspector stationed there. And then, he is told to stay and take over permanently. He's TOTALLY a fish out of water and not at all happy to be away from his comfort zone of London. So there's humor, but also good mysteries, the solutions of which rely on paying close attention to detail, especially the little things that don't seem to make sense.

    Agreed on both series. Ive watched all 5 series of Doctor Blake on BritBox. They have announced a 6th series, albeit with significant cast changes.


    Death in Paradise is on my Must See list. An 8th series has been announced, but with more cast changes, sigh. I also have two of the books, although I havent read either yet.


     I am coming to really hate this forum software. It wont let me block select text on my iPad to make things in italics (I have to do it one word at a time), and there is the obvious problem with not translating apostrophes correctly. I rarely have this problem with any of the other half-dozen forums that I post in.  But I always have it in this one.

    Ah! good to know there are more ... I'll check Netflix periodically so see if they go past 3 series. I did feel the end of series 3, when Jean left to help her son and daughter in law with the new baby and Lucien joined her on the bus, could work as well for end of series as end of whole show. Same for Midsomer Murders which has 19 series on Netflix but I know there's a 20th -- just not there yet.

    I've been toying with the idea of trying BritBox, but not sure I want to pay -- I'm only getting Netflix now as it came free when we switched to T-Mobile for our cell phones.

    Will make a note of that as well. I think Netflix has 6 or 7; I'm only just near the end of 1 so a ways to go.

    :) one of the reasons I generally use my desktop, or link up my bt keyboard if I'm on my tablet -- especially if I'm being verbose, which, honestly, I usually am. :D But Betsy might know some tricks ... she's pretty much a guru for fruity phones and tablets. ;) (Oh, and there was recently included some way to put the forum in a different format for tablets and phones -- but I don't use it and forget, now, how to activate it.)

    I absolutely love "Death in Paradise" - it's my "feel-better" anti-stress show, re-watched quite a few times. Of course the plot has its weak moments - but those actors and that island...!!!!! Unfortunately, the books based on the series are not worth reading, IMHO.

    yeah ... for a murder mystery series, it's pretty light-hearted with definite moments of humor. Got a pretty big shock this afternoon, though, when starting the 3rd series and find that Richard Poole is killed and some new guy comes in. At least when the Detective Barnabys switched out in Midsomer Murders, there was some foreshadowing and explanation!

    Thanks for mentioning "Death in Paradise."  I am always trying to find things for DH to watch.  He quickly got hooked on this one after watching the first two episodes yesterday.  Just based on the time we have spent in the Caribbean, I bet they can get a lot of mileage out of the laid-back attitude of the folks who live there.

    Yes -- as contrasted with stereotypical English sensibilities!

    Anyone seen Castle Rock, that show based on Stephen King works and universe? Movies and series based on King's stuff seems to be pretty hit or miss, hoping this one is good when I get around to binge watching it.

    I was binge-watching Deep Space Nine, Shark Tank, and Jeopardy. I ran out of steam on Jeopardy though and stopped watching it entirely. Shark Tank... an episode here or there.

    So now it's just Deep Space Nine. I've already seen it several times but I've been long overdue for a rewatch. Always fantastic. By far my favourite Trek.

    I m watching American Horror Story Season 4 and Fresh Off the Boat currently. I don't like either much, but I let them play on as I do some cleaning, washing, and other in-house chores.

     I have been binging on Corner Gas, the award-winning Canadian comedy show about a small rural town in Saskatchewan.  Prime has all six series plus the movie. I saw several of the series a decade or so ago, and I think I may have gotten some DVDs from Netflix.


     This show may be the very definition of the term quirky.

    "Riverdale" on Netflix, starring the Archie comics characters. Only the story lines aren't so funny, and often not that plausible either.

    The first season was alright. I've heard it really goes off the rails after that, though. How far in are you?

    Thanks, I had never heard of Tubitv.  I definitely will check this out.  I love all incarnations of The Saint going back to Vincent Price on the radio.

    What a trip down memory lane !  First aired in 1960....every young guys dream.  Viet Nam prevented me from doing the trip, but over my lifetime I have travelled most of route 66....even own a small piece of property on it !!

    We just binged The Little Drummer Girl yesterday from the DVR - aired on AMC last month.  Excellent - may have interested us more than it would some because it was set mostly in Europe in the late 70s and we lived there then.  Felt very true to the times.

    We also binged the final season of House of Cards.  Much less satisfying - it was okay (despite missing Francis) until the final two episodes, which were just...weird. And disappointing.  Like the writers lost focus, or interest, or both.

    Trying to burn through all of New Girl since it's going away on January 1st on Netflix.

    Midway through season 2... I don't think I'm gonna make it.
