Title: What are you binge-watching?
Post by: Betsy the Quilter on February 27, 2015, 08:02:22 am
OK, I'm binge-watching The Closer.  Really enjoying this.  I never watched it at all when it was on.  Kyra Sedgewick and the ensemble cast are great!  On episode 13 of season 1.

I just finished watching 8 seasons of Dexter over the past two weeks. (http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w378/galeriaddo/assassin.gif)

Incredible writing up to the end.  The middle sagged a little (as middles do) but I really enjoyed the psychological aspect of the series.

Ooh, just checked it out on Prime.  Wasn't familiar with it---sounds awesome.  Will add it to my watchlist....

I also just finished The Vikings, seasons 1 and 2.  I'm kind of mixed about it, but liked it enough to keep watching if there are more seasons.

So many people have raved about Dexter - guess I'm just going to have to try it out after all (and will probably stick with it just like I did finally with Breaking Bad, which is not on Prime, I don't think. I watched it on my son's Netflix account)

Vikings lost me... I just never really liked the characters.

Other recent binges were House of Cards and Weeds, although the later seasons of Weeds were a waste of time.

Both Dexter and Weeds throw in borderline porn from time to time (We're cable!  We do it because we can!), Weeds more than Dexter, but neither are appropriate if you have kids running in and out of the room.  The violence on Dexter is pretty graphic as well but I tend to FF through the shock pandering to get back to the story.

I just watched 3 episodes of The Americans (current season) on my dvr to catch up.  Overall I like the show but sometimes the gratuitous violence is too awful, particularly when they showed them breaking bones of a body to fit it into a suitcase.  Had enough of that with Sopranos and didn't mind then, but I do mind on this show.

I expect to be watching a lot of House of Cards this weekend, since it was just released yesterday on netflix streaming.

I've heard House of Cards is really good, so maybe that's my next one.

Ed used to like The Closer . . . . . I like the follow on (Kyra Sedgewick is gone) called Major Crimes much better.

Broadchurch was EXCELLENT . . . the second series starts on BBC America this week.

I watched Grimm for 2 or 3 seasons and then it just got to be too much . . . . . lost interest in the characters, too much 'long story arc' and not enough actually solving something each episode.

Same for Covert Affairs. I liked it at first but then she got a little bit TSTL, I thought, and, again, didn't like the long story arc format.  I don't want to feel like I've missed important things if I miss an episode.  I know: there's no longer an excuse to EVER miss an episode. . . . . but still.

But, on topic: I don't binge watch.  I don't binge read.  Burns me out even faster on a series. ::)

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.

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).

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 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.

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.

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.

Also, just found (and it's the complete opposite in all ways) The Paradise on Netflix about a beautiful store at the turn of the 20th century, and the adorable British people who work there, how they're coming into their own in a society that caters to the wealthy. Kind of a Downton Abbey where downstairs rules the up, or is beginning to, in their own way,

Also, I never miss an episode of Supernatural or The Flash. All over the map, I know!  Anyone else like that out there? Speak up and show yourself so I don't feel like such a goof.

I hadn't heard about Mr. Selfridge! And I just had to stop watching The Paradise after three back to back, because it's 1:00 a.m. and I can't keep my eyes open. Next up is the season 1 finale...then a whole other season! So, yes, I'll be bummed when it's over, but at least I have a whole other season to watch over the next day. Or two... heheh. ;)

Afterwards, I'll check out Selfridge. If it was competition, perhaps it's good? (fingers crossed)

I really like The Blacklist, and I'd say it's largely on the strength of James Spader's performance: he does a fine job of being ambiguously evil, caring, charming, and frightening. Without him, I'm not sure the rest of the cast would hold my interest.

Watched a few episodes of the Undercover Boss marathon. Some of the others I had already seen. I like shows like criminal minds and NCIS but I've seen a lot of those episodes, especially Criminal Minds because of the marathons they play. Looking for a medical/forensics show similar. I like mysteries and having to play along to uncover the truth. Some of those shows listed here seems interesting might have to look into them.

Love George Gently. I don't binge watch it because there aren't enough of them. I'm trying to make the flavor last. In between, I read the books. There are about 40 of them and I can picture Martin Shaw as the title character. I can't picture Lee Ingleby as Dutt in the books because he's an entirely different character than Bacchus in the TV series.

Agreed!! His performance is like Val Kilmer's in Tombstone... steals the show it's so good. I've been a fan of James Spader's like-able villains since his slew of pairings with Andrew McCarthy in the 80's who always played the good guy to his bad. (Pretty in Pink, Mannequin, Less Than Zero) I think they must be friends because Andrew directs many of The Blacklist episodes, and James is an executive producer...I find that so interesting.

@ BetsyTheQuilter - you much check it out. He will hook you... so get ready. ;)

Agree about Spader being a scene stealer.  I've been a Spader fan for ages...the timing just hasn't been right for me to catch it on broadcast. :). Based on the comments, really looking forward to it!

Watching The Killing right now.  Very dark, very creepy.  Slow pace which I don't mind.

Ive been watching Grimm, though "binge" for me is pretty slow. Not through the first season yet.

I was binge watching Grimm last year about this time. I have to admit the only reason I started watching was because I finally realized that an old review on one of my books was written by the creator of Grimm. My one claim to fame. lol. Anyway, I liked the show especially Monroe and Nick (who is completely drool worthy), but once I got through two seasons, and I think it was on third season when I started watching, I couldn't get the third season as it wasn't on Prime yet, and I didn't want to fork over all that money to watch it. Then I lost interest.  ::)

I am preparing to binge watch a new Netflix show this weekend (3/20) when all the episodes of a new show will be released at once. It's Bloodline, with Kyle Chandler, Sissy Spacek, Linda Cardellini and Sam Shepardson starring. I absolutely love Kyle Chandler and then when Cardellini  was cast, I was thrilled. Loved her in Freaks and Geeks.

I watch Grimm...but it's changed a lot since now so many characters know about the vesin (sp?). I kinda liked it more when it was secret and Nick and Monroe were going after bad guys on their own. Hank - I liked him finding out because he's a good comic-straight man. But now it's everybody!!! Not as fun.

Almost done with The Paradise - since there are only two seasons... and because I know it's ending soon, it's kinda hurting to watch. Funny how addicted we get to our characters when we love them.

There is a facebook group about British culture.  The moderators post links using google docs to current TV shows. 

There is also a way to see UK shows around the time they air there with ITV , BBC and other channels' players, but it requires the use of an app (I have tunnelbear) that hides your location.  With ITV, I had to register with a UK zip code.  I haven't use this in a long time and need to cancel my tunnelbear account since I am paying $5/month. I don't have enough time to keep up with it, and I was having problems with the ITV player on my ipad, lots of buffering. All ITV shows have commercials and there is no way around that.  BBC is better for not having commercials, but when I have moved the time slider, there has been a lot of buffering.

I'm really enjoying The White Queen, based on Philippa Gregory's novels.  I don't know why I never read the books.  This is really good historical drama, but it seems that they had a shortage of first names in that era, so lots of people are named Henry, Margaret and Edward.  Can get a little confusing for those of us not up on the British monarchy.  But it's also very educational.  It's set several monarchies prior to Wolf Hall, from what I gather.  Really looking forward to the premiere of Wolf Hall tonight on PBS.

I have been watching the entire series of Glee.  Even though I watched every episode as it was originally aired and have watched some of the seasons as I got the DVDs, (I have them all) I decided to watch them all from the audition episode before the pilot and I finished Season 5 last night.  I have preordered Season 6 but still have the episodes on the DVR and will watch them next.  I thought that I would get bored with it before I finished but I was pleasantly surprised to see things I didn't remember happening and of course I really love the musical performances.  I thought that knowing that actor Cory Monteith had died and the impact on the show would make it hard to watch I found that I didn't focus on that but instead was able to enjoy the storyline.

I know that some of my friends and family never understood my interest in this show (I'm in my 60's) but my DDH and I met in High School in our Freshman year and were in what was our equivalent to Glee Club so understood a lot of the dynamics of what was going on and I love singing and the music.  I am sure I will binge watch the series again in the future.

Just started watching The White Queen through Amazon prime instant video.  I'm on a royal kick after having seen Wolf Hall.  White Queen isn't exactly at Masterpiece level, but I'm interested enough to watch.

I hadn't heard about this show until I read this. Now I have something to watch after Wolf Hall!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I have seriously, honestly, truthfully never seen it before.  I mean, I saw the odd episode on telly when I was a kid, but I've never watched enough of it to get a feel for the story.  It's funny.  Dated, but funny!

Nice!  First show I ever binge-watched was Star Trek: Deep Space 9.  I'd just gotten out of the emergency room and was so sick with a fever that my mother refused to let me go back to my own house, so she put me on a mattress on her living room floor and put DS9 on.  I was better before we finished, but I stayed to watch the rest anyway.  And thus, I became a Trekkie.

Still on Stargate SG1. Up to the middle of season 9. Missing Jack O'Neill - I don't think it was the same after he stopped being active so much at the end of season 7, and the Ori aren't as good at villainy as the Goauld.

Skipping most of the Vala Malderan episodes too as she's just so bloody annoying.

Never mind... SG Atlantis coming up soon and some decent villains in the Wraith.

My hair turned green after the first wash, but not entirely.  It went this amazing mottled abalone colour, was WAY better than anything I could have done deliberately.  Shame it didn't last, though!

Thank you.  I'm still undecided about whether to watch Angel.  Lacking the usual teenage girl crush that seems to make most girls adore him, I despise the character with every fibre of my being.  Doesn't help that he just killed one of my favourites, either.  I know he supposedly redeems himself later, but I am not so quick to forgive!

I did not follow the exercise regiment that I laid out (have to exercise if watching) and ended up binge watching Breaking Bad.  I finished it and reluctantly gave the discs back to my daughter. I may have to buy the series so I can do the exercise reward route the next go around.  This time watching for all the nuances.

Brilliantly written, brilliantly acted.  I can see why it won so many awards.

Maybe my next exercise/reward will be Justified - I liked the few I saw but I believe it was on opposite Supernatural for a while - and nothing trumps that for me. :)

Anyhow, off to find some other series to motivate me to get my full hour of exercise in...

Iron Chef America. This is not a good show to binge-watch. I find myself running around the kitchen and stirring much faster than normal. I have been known to pan flip my food, but my new ceramic pots are too slippery. Everything just slides back in without turning. After watching ten straight episodes if ICA, I feel like such a failure.

The show I'm watching is using Silkie Chickens. They look like dead black dragons. Ick.

I really liked the series. Not something that I will re-watch. It was a while back that I read the book . . .liked it but didn't think about it much afterwards.  This is not everyone's cup of tea.  Not a feel-good TV show.  I understand that it was through Frances McDormand's efforts that it was made.  I think it was the best thing I've seen her in, and I did like her in Fargo.  (Actually, while Fargo was very popular, it was a violent downer with a little black humor).  I read some discussions on IMDB about Olive Kitteridge.  Many people were very judgmental about her character and said she was mentally ill.  I disagree.  She was cranky.  She went too far with her awful behavior at her son's wedding.

I'm binge watching Danger Man,  starring Patrick McGoohan via Netflix DVDs. I only saw the occasional episode over the years. I'm enjoying them. I like the voice-overs during the episode. One thing that stands out is that unlike modern TV shows which have a wrap-up after the final commercial, Danger Man will frequently end earlier than is the fashion nowadays and tell the subsequent events via voice-over. I sort of like this.

The last thing I binge-watched was Pie in the Sky on Acorn TV. It's a quirky British police series about a Detective Inspector who would much rather be tending to the cooking in his small restaurant than investigating crime. Starring Richard Griffiths (who has since died  :'( ) there were five series made. This is one of the few series where I'm considering buying the DVD set if it disappears from the streaming services.

I wouldn't call it binge watching, as I'm writing rather than watching these days.

Binge for me is a whole season in three days (20+ episodes).

I currently am watching an episode of the Newsroom, during lunch and dinner.  Previous to that was Grimm, and before that Continuum.

I never binge-watched until Daredevil came out on Netflix. I did it for the first time and loved the first 5 hours. Around Hour 6 I started getting worn down even though the show KEPT GETTING BETTER. But it was too much, too fast. I recuperated around the finale, and loved the heck out of that show.

But I'll never do it again.

The instant gratification is too much. Now I have to wait A WHOLE YEAR for the next season. I've concluded I would rather watch an episode a week so I can savor each and every episode with a fresh mind. I also miss the anticipation.

(Plus, I wouldn't have to wait so dang long for the next season. The wait for Daredevil Season 2 is KILLING me.)

I've been binge-watching Vera, a British police procedural. I normally dislike police procedurals intensely, but once in a while one will strike my fancy. This series stars Brenda Blethyn, an award-winning actress. It's nice to see a woman in a police drama who doesn't look like she's moonlighting as a fashion model. The Brits seem to have always been more apt to cast actors that look like regular people than we do here in the USA.

I'm two eps into season 2 of 4. Only 4 or 5 eps per season, so there aren't that many.

I haven't seen that one, but check out New Tricks. The MFC is also not a fashion model, and the stories themselves are excellent. Now 11 seasons long, although they had a major cast change in 10.

Loved that show. I remember watching it live with my family. I was entirely too excited when I bought it on DVD. I have the book but haven't yet read it.
After reading this thread I decided to re-watch Chuck. When it was airing I watched it up until the final season so I'd never seen the series finale. I like Chuck and it had a lot of potential but I don't think it ever lived up to all of it. Really hated the series finale.
NCIS is now on Netflix and I haven't watched it in a few years so I thought I'd start from the beginning. It's a nice show to have on in the background that doesn't take my complete attention. However, now that I know Top Chef is on Hulu I might have to jump ship... we'll see

At the moment, I'm working my way -- via rented DVDs -- through the re-make of Hawaii Five-O. Much, much better than I was expecting. Fair stories. Good cast -- Grace Park from Battlestar, Daniel Dae Kim from a whole bunch of shows including 24, James Caan's son Scott as Danno.

And the best thing of all? They've kept the original theme tune!

I need to get back to that [Extant]. I watched the first two eps and then drifted away. There should be a second season approaching, IIRC.

Well, I went back and binge-watched the next 6 or 7 episodes of Extant, then deleted the rest of the eps I had. It just got more uninvolving the more it went on, to the point I don't care what happens to any of those characters.

Obviously some people like it, but it just doesn't work for me.

don't know the movie.  The TV series is about a Long Island psychologist who catches her hubby cheating, has a one night stand with a guy who turns out to be a trainer for a football team and he gets her a job as the therapist for the team.  We also see her interacting with other clients.  In the first two seasons she is heavily involved in the football team, so that's fine, but the third season she is working for a talent agency, so the emphasis on one of the football players and his romantic life is annoying (to me)

It was probably casting. She was just the best they considered for the role. Then they had to explain her accent.

Its not uncommon in tv series, for a major character to have an accent or simply their voice generally that grates on a lot of people. Captain Janeway in Trek Voyager was one for me.

I got to the last hour of the last disc and my BluRay player started freezing shortly after the segment started. I tried it on my other DVD player, no dice. Drat. I found a 3rd party seller on Amazon who would sell me just the third disc in the set for a reasonable price and ordered it.

I've never seen all of the episodes before, since the season packs were never released in Australia. Fortunately, Amazon had the complete series as a single pack, and I discovered my blue ray player and tv do play US discs.

So, if you'll pardon me saying it, I'm in heaven for a while as I churn through them.

Haha! It's been pretty exhausting. When I met my wife, she had absolutely no idea about the show beyond the fact that it was popular and David Tennant had been in it. She was more excited about Billie Piper when we watched Rose and referred to the TARDIS as "that blue thing I see in toy shops"... There have been a few questions asked.

We finished The Killing last week. Now we're watching Castle, currently on season 2.

I've got all the Castle seasons on instant video (not prime, unfortunately) and my grandson and I watch an episode every day. Well, I watch and he wanders in and out of the kitchen and his room and stops to ask which episode it is, etc., etc., etc. Heaven forbid he sits down and watches with the old lady.

Yes, I think it's a kinda new thing.  I had Hulu with commercials.  That was $7.99.  Upgraded to without commercials for $11.99.  Then within Hulu you can add on Showtime for $8.99.  Or you can get Showtime without going through Hulu for $10.99.  Currently Showtime without Hulu is available only on Apple and Roku products.  I stream via my Fire TV. 

I gotta think streaming is doing some damage to cable and satellite TV.  Sports still available mostly on cable, but otherwise . . . .  All you need is good internet service.

For only $4 more a month I can eliminate commercials? I think I have to go for it. I really don't care about Showtime.

Yeah, I love when I get mailings from cable and satellite companies and I can just toss them in the trash. There are a few things I miss, but that's no different than a favorite network show being cancelled. Definitely not worth the $90 a month I was paying for satellite with no premium channels.

If it weren't for sports we'd probably be cord-cutters.  And DH is a bit of a news junky, but it's mostly the sports.

We just binged Bosch last week - I'd only read the first 3, but it's made me antsy to get back to them. Very well done. We're slowly bingeing Bloodline (is it possible to binge slowly?)  don't want to get to the end and have to wait for the next season. And we'll be bingeing on the new season of Longmire soon on Netflix.

Loved Bloodline.  Netflix is just starting to film season 2, so we have to wait for sometime in '16.  If you want to know what's going on with Bloodline -- go into Facebook and search for Bloodliners.

And anxious for Longmire and next House of Cards -- whenever??

I gave up with the tv version at the end of season 3. What I've heard of 4 and 5 isn't enticing me to keep going.

I am, however, waiting for the next 2 books. Those I will buy, if only to complete the series. Assuming they ever get published.

Last week I binge-watched The Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries. Sixteen hours of TV made back in the mid-1970s, starring Ian Carmichael as Wimsey. Amazon had the boxed set for a decent price, so I bought it. I had some misgivings, as I remembered Lord Peter being played as a silly-ass Englishman.

Imagine my surprise when I found my faint memories to be completely mistaken! The character is played pretty closely to the one in the books. In one of the interviews, Ian Carmichael says the producers were leery about casting him as Wimsey, as he had just finished a run playing P. G. Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster (a very silly-ass Englishman indeed). I can only think that somewhere I must have seen one or more episodes of that Jeeves and Wooster series (despite the claims of it not being released in the US) and mis-remembered it as a Wimsey performance.

I can say now that this series with Carmichael is going to be re-watched in the future, it's very good. Apparently, this series was first shown in the US on PBS and inspired the long-running Mystery! program.

I'm bingeing on Mad Men.  I'd seen the first three seasons as the DVDs were released.  After that I kept buying the DVDs, but didn't watch them.  So now with streaming, thought I'd start by rewatching seasons 3.  S3,E1 seemed new to me so I started again from the very beginning -- S1,E1.  The men and the women and the smoking make me wanna barf.  It was the times, but geeeeeez.  Some things were familiar -- life then, not talking the TV series.  That was my father's life.  He worked at a small ad agency in Chicago from '45 to his death from smoking in '73.  IIRC, titles on his last business card were Secretary (of the agency) and Media Director. 

Keep seeing something in the series that I believe is wrong for the times.  When you see secretaries typing, the heels of their hands are resting on the base of the keyboard / edge of the table with fingers outstretched.  That's the way we type today, but not back then.  I took typing in high school in '61 - '62.  Instructed to type with wrists held high above the keyboard and fingers stretched down.

I do all my work while having something bingewatchworthy on the other monitor. I couldn't paint or sew or pack cards or do admin and do nothing else at the same time. So I have stuff playing at the same time. I don't always have something on while I'm writing, but quite often I do. I know several full-time writers who write in front of the TV.

It does mean I can't have something on that has subtitles, and humour quite often flops because I'm not actually watching it closely enough.

I am going to binge my way through all seasons of the X-files. I never actually seen the first season and I think two in english. I was still living in Germany when it came out and I was hooked on that show. I love all the technology that was used in those days and the suits Scully wears.  ;D. My goodness they were babies. Smooth baby faces.

It will be a while for me to get through, lots of seasons with lots of episodes. But that is the crazy magic that a lot of new shoes have missing now.

There are some shows I would love to binge on, but some don't have any streaming or even DVD's, and other are just to expensive to buy in DVD.

Currently still binging on Mad Men.  I've seen two anachronisms so far.  Hand position when typing -- secretaries had heels of hands resting on base of keyboard on a manual typewriter with fingers outstretched.  In the early '60s were taught to hold wrists up high with fingers stretched down to the keyboard.  When Dan & Betsy's old house was empty and Betsy was leaving for the last time, the phone was on the wall.  Back then the phone company had to come to the house to disconnect service and take the leased phone.

Hey Kristrine, I actually did a thread about this show. It is fantastic! PBS has the current season on now and you can stream some if not all of them with their free channel, should be available with what ever device you use to stream Netflix.

Betsy, is Longmire going any better for you?  I started watching it a few weeks ago.  It started slow but now I am totally into it.  I think they were very carefully setting the groundwork for the long story arc.  I am halfway through season 3 and am going to be really sad at the end of season 4.  Then I have to wait till next season.

I think the first three seasons were great & then it started to go downhill with the Freak Show season. Too much over the top shock value, stuff that wasn't needed & took away from the show.
I'm trying to watch season 5, Hotel & almost gave up after the 1st episode.... it was disgusting! Episodes 2 & 3 weren't  as bad as the 1st & had more story to them, so I'll stick with it a bit longer...unless they make me sick again.  :-\

I've got Flesh & Bone scheduled on my TiVo (but can also just watch on STARZ). I've watched the first episode & then have been out of town. Reallly liked Ep.1 & am looking forward to more episodes. Love shows that feature any kind of dancing (except I am not into DWTS).

Criminal Minds Season 10. People kept on telling me it was gruesome, but it turns out to be no more gruesome that the other series. Serial killer fiction is simply a modern form of demonology.

I just found a set of DVD-R I thought I had lost. I am going to binge on Rockstar INXS. It was on 10 years ago and I am a huge INXS fan. Its still my favorite talent show of all times. I am so ecstatic to have found the discs again. They were in a box I never thought they were in all the way in the back of the under stair closet. I hadn't even laid eyes on them in 10 years. And they still work thankfully. Yay.

Betsy, is Longmire going any better for you?  I started watching it a few weeks ago.  It started slow but now I am totally into it.  I think they were very carefully setting the groundwork for the long story arc.  I am halfway through season 3 and am going to be really sad at the end of season 4.  Then I have to wait till next season.

Tripp,

just saw this--yes, Longmire got much better for me, and I'm eagerly awaiting the next season!

I started Transparent Season 2 as well but then got engrossed in "Making a Murderer" just released on Netflix. It is a very powerful documentary filmed over 10 years. It is a very bizarre series of events told in 10 episodes. I am almost half way through and highly recommend it if you like true crime docs. Extremely well done and proves the old saying that truth really is stranger than fiction.

Plus 2 movies, one of which ends season 10, and the other ends the SG1 story as such.

Fringe kind of blew my mind. I think I'll wait a bit before re-watching that. Love xfiles too, which is one of the things I am trying to "binge". Not sure if it counts as binge if one stops and manages maybe one episode a week.

We did a binge on The Detectorists over new years and now we want to watch the 2nd season and its not anywhere. What a great show, short, but so so good.

I have so many shows I want to watch and it will I think take longer than I have a life span. Star Gate alone has 10 seasons and I am still at the 1st.  :o

Over the weekend I watched a documentary series called Million Dollar American Princesses, hosted by Elizabeth Mc Govern of Downton Abbey. The first 3 episodes you can stream free if you download their channel to your roku ... they just started season two which since I don't have the channel I can buy via Amazon or wait till it shows up on their channel... Fascinating series that profiles women like Consuelo Vanderbilt and Jennie Jerome, mother of Winston Churchill.

But I'm looking forward to refilling (note: never replacing! ;) ) that time with PBS's new show Mercy Street, about a Union hospital in Virginia, during the Civil War. I saw the first episode last week and I was impressed.

I've also been going through Call the Midwife on Netflix, too, which is always very good.

I'm binge-watching The Expanse. I got to the next to last episode in the season and realized that it looked interesting, but that I had not obviously paid much attention during the episodes that had played, because I had no idea what the plot was or who most of the characters were.

So know I have to start over again (fortunately all were still on the PVR), but actually watching this time.  ;D

In the past few months I've binged watched Jane the Virgin, Making a Murderer, and Transparent.

We just started Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 on Netflix. It's surprisingly funny.

The shows I can watch over and over again are: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Parks and Recreation. Those three never get old.

Oh nice, I could talk about television all day.

Latest Netflix binge: the whole run of House.

Guilty pleasure that is way better than it should be: The 100

(Actually, almost anything on the CW fits that bill.)

Critically acclaimed shows I liked before they were cool: Transparent, Wolf Hall

The only "reality" show I watch: RuPaul's Drag Race

We just started binge watching UnREAL, a drama from Lifetime that is on Hulu. It's written and directed by Marti Noxon, one of the main people from Buffy. From what I can gather, it is a pretty accurate portrayal of what goes on behind the scenes of those Bachelor shows. Apparently one of the writers worked on the show for years and had to get out of her contract. The environment was making her suicidal.

It's a pretty harsh indictment of "reality" television and also somewhat peripherally on the power of manipulation and psychology and how it can ruin a person's life.

It's not actually a BBC production, it's made by ITV, the oldest commercial network in the UK.

I watched Series 7 on Acorn TV several months ago. I'm hoping there will be a Series 8, but have heard nothing yet.

There will be two more seasons of Doc Martin, but I think they make them every OTHER year.  Martin Clunes and his wife announced it in an interview (his wife is one of the top people involved in the production of Doc Martin).  So there will eventually be a Series 8 and a Series 9.

I've gone through several seasons of "House, M.D." over that past month or two. It's sort of a guilty pleasure: the situations are contrived, the medical aspects of the plots are repetitious (in terms of how they come to an eventual diagnosis), but I still enjoy watching it. I assume that must in large part be due to Hugh Laurie.

This happens a lot in Canada made tv. Pretty much every series I've watched made there from 1998 onwards, has had the same people come in for episode parts, or ongoing secondary roles.

The other thing which happens is the stars from one show, turn up for episode parts in another being made at the same time.

Why bother coming up for air?

You should already be looking for your next binge.

Slightly confused by your reply; what are you watching on disc?

Also, you're missing out on a true golden age of scripted drama--with the diversification of content producers, there is some seriously high quality stuff being produced.

Generally agree with you about news, but understand that it is possible to access tons of quality serial dramas without a cable subscription or live television.

Everything I watch is on disc. I usually wait for the blue-rays, but am still buying dvd's if I have to.

I dont watch scripted drama. In fact, I'm not even sure what it is. If its not sci-fi or fantasy, I dont watch it. (With a very few exceptions).

Currently watching season 5 of Lost Girl, but I seem to have lost interest. 4 episodes to go, and that might be it, regardless if the show goes on. Saw season 5 part 1 of Haven this morning, and didn't get it because the MC has gone dark, and I'm not sure I want to go there.

Going back to SGU season 2 when I finish Lost Girl.

While other people watch the news and current affairs over dinner, I watch something off a disc.

I dont even watch Doctor Who off the tv any more. I wait for the discs. Same as I dont go to the cinema anymore, but wait for the disc.

Sorry, it was your "I stopped watching TV" that threw me. Then when you said disc, I thought you meant movies were superior to television.

Scripted drama typically means any hourlong tv show that is like the Sopranos, Game of Thrones, etc. The phrase probably came up to differentiate from reality tv.

TV is free to air that someone else decided what you watch.
Disc is what you put into your machine, that displays on the same box the tv uses.
Scripted Drama? Yeah, I guess I pay that. But so called reality tv is anything but.
Not interested into anything like Sopranos. Gave up on of GoT at season 3.

I've just (today) finished binge-watching the first through latest-shows in the second series of The Doctor Blake Mysteries, an Australian series about a police surgeon. It's set in the late 1950s. I was turned off the series by the first episode, which was heavy on gang activity (one of the things I have an intense dislike of). I gave it another chance a year or so later and liked the second episode quite a lot. By that time, I had all the first series (10 eps) on the DVR, so I started burning through them and discovered that the second series was being aired and I had missed the first two eps. The first and second series apparently have different ID numbers in the digital program information, as well as slightly different names (at least on PBS). The first series was The Doctor Blake Mysteries, and the second was Doctor Blake Mysteries (maybe it's the other way around). Go figure. The name change wouldn't be enough to keep the second series from recording, since DVRs use the internal ID number to identify each series. The ID number would tell the DVR that it was a different show entirely. It's not available for streaming anywhere, so I'll have to wait for re-runs to get the eps I missed. Thankfully, the local PBS station tends to re-show series like this a few months later.

This isn't the first time new seasons haven't been recorded due to this problem. It seems to crop up every several years.

I like this show a lot (save the first one). The interactions between the police surgeon and the Chief Inspector of the local police seems more realistic than it does in other TV shows, even with the surgeon taking more of a part in investigations in the second series.

They did a good job of stuff like that throughout the series. The first five seasons are awesome, the last few are still good but I didn't think they quiet captured what made the first few so great for me. I loved that Foyle doesn't let people get away with things just because it's war time.

Foyle's War is one of my favorites.  I have watched it streaming, but I have the first 5 or so seasons on dvd.

Someone at work told me about Top Boy, which originally aired on Channel Four in England.  It is very dark, about drug dealers in a project in North London.  I have watched 2 episodes. There are 2 seasons, with 4 episodes in each.  I do not recommend if you want something uplifting.  I can't binge watch it, but I found it interesting.

Star Trek: Deep Space 9

I slogged through 3 seasons to get to the good parts. IMHO things really kick in toward the middle of season 3.

Getting attached to the characters and see how they develop. Also, the cast seems to be gelling really well. The actors seem to have good chemistry. All very interesting things to notice.

I just have to say that seasons 1 and 2 were pretty aweful. My hardcore trek buddy told me to stick it out and I'm glad I did.

Definitely worth trying again, but you can just start from where you left off.

Minor spoiler - someone well known in the Trek universe joins DS9 at the beginning of season 4, (which is after the movie Generations) and the whole thing changes tone for the better.

Before 'Orange is the new black', before 'Wentworth' and before any other current prison shows, there was the original 'Prisoner Cell Block H' which started in Australia 1979 and went for almost 700 episodes. It had such a massive cult following, they made a new version 'Wentworth' but it isn't as good in my opinion. Anyway it's getting us through winter in Canada and my partner loves it too but I keep having to explain all our 'Aussieisms' lol. Such a high drama, well acted, suspenseful show with lots of laughs and wonderful characters. You can watch every episode on youtube and I highly recommend it.  ;)

Hi all.

I've just binge watched seasons 1-5 of The Walking Dead.  Now waiting for season 6 on DVD.

I've also recently binge watched every Michael Fassbender film I could find.

My biggest binge ever was House.  I think I could go on Mastermind with that as my specialist subject.

Now looking for something new!

After watching the final episode, I've started re-watching Downton Abbey from the beginning. Amazon Prime has the series with the uncut UK episodes. The American eps were cut 8-10 minutes from what I hear. I doubt if I'll ever notice anything additional, but still...

I also have Gosford Park flagged to re-watch this weekend.

I just finished binge watching season 5 of Downton Abbey (the penultimate season), since it's free on Amazon. But since I didn't catch the final season soon enough on PBS and don't want to pay on Amazon, I've had to steer clear of social media for the last few days, lest I get spoiled.

We're also about to start binge watching the rest of the final season of The Good Wife, since we need to catch up before the series finale later this spring. If you haven't watched that one, it would be a satisfying one to binge watch from the beginning on Netflix. We just re-watched the pilot and really holds up to a second viewing. I love that show. Possibly my favorite network television show ever.

Post by: PJ_Cherubino on March 11, 2016, 03:27:51 pm
You gave up too soon.  :o

Definitely worth trying again, but you can just start from where you left off.

Minor spoiler - someone well known in the Trek universe joins DS9 at the beginning of season 4, (which is after the movie Generations) and the whole thing changes tone for the better.

By season 5, you will be binge watching it.

Yeah, the last 3 seasons were nothing short of phenomenal. I wish they could have started out that way. I suspect existential angst was the motivating force there....

Anyway, the plots get into classic science fiction themes with some truly amazing stories. I don't want to spoil anything. Even Avery Brook's weird acting, with his perfect diction and pseudo-Shakespearean cadence, found its groove as the series progressed.

The character arcs were also fantastic. I came to love the Ferengi element, especially the frenemy relationship between Odo and Quark. There are some really great examinations of war and violence as well.

The character relationships were fantastic in general.

I came to love the Ferengi Nog as well. I'll stop before I give spoilers.

I'm not a huge cartoon fan, but I do find Bob's Burgers hilarious. My husband is the one who got me into to watching it. One thing we like about it is that it is not sardonic or rude. The comedy doesn't rest in humiliation or cynicism. It's a pretty straightforward and lighthearted comedy. It has heart.

Over just the last few days I caught up on all 7 episodes of 11.22.63 on Hulu, the finale is tonight. Also on Hulu I watched The Enfield Haunting, pretty good poltergeist tale with Timothy Spall, just 3 episodes. Yesterday on Acorn I watched all of "The Brontes of Haworth" and the first two of "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" both are 70's mini series and taped, rather than filmed. The latter being a bit better quality than the Brontes. Still, the Brontes story is so unique and tragic I just could not stop watching, 5 full episodes (the 6th is just a trailer) I am pretty surprised it has not been done more often. There is a new version in pre-production now, I am hoping it done well.

Currently doing a full rewatch of House of Lies. Really recommend it. Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, and a great supporting cast. Hilarious and super raunchy, so be warned. Not to be confused with House of Cards, which I gave up on a few seasons back.

I'd say it's less dark than the 1st season.  A lot of things happen and some of it is disturbing.  I read the NY Times review (I think it was the Times) and they mention it not being as dark as the 1st season.  I watched a little more than 4 episodes the 1st night and just had to watch the rest Sunday evening, even before my dvr'd PBS shows.

Thanks! I liked what seemed to be the setup (no-nonsense beat cop in a small English town), and the sister, but the kidnapping stuff was harsh.

I just finished watching the second season of The Detectorists. I'd seen that the first season was on Acorn TV for quite a while, but the premise seemed like one of those British comedies that don't translate well to American audiences. I was bored one day and watched the first episode of Series 1 and enjoyed it. So I watched the rest of that series and was pleased when a second series showed up a week or two ago. That one I binge-watched. I'd be pleased if there were another series down the road.

I think the show works because, like quite a few of the other shows that I've liked, it's very much the vision of one person. The show was created by, is written by, is directed by, and co-stars one person: Mackenzie Crook. Americans would probably recognize him from The Pirates of the Caribbean movies where he played one of the pirates (the one with the false eye). Very talented guy.

The Detectorists is a low-key Britcom about two fellows who roam the English countryside with metal detectors looking for artifacts. Mostly what they find are pull-tabs and Hot Wheels cars. They seem to be able to identify pull-tabs by year and beverage.

It's refreshing to watch a comedy that is actually a situational comedy instead of wall-to-wall one-liners.

My local PBS station is showing the first series, so it may be available in other areas as well. If you like the low-key approach of many Britcoms, you might enjoy this.

I am re-binge watching Supernatural. Can't help it - love those guys. I really love the brother interaction with one another. First time I saw it was with my mom and she has a crush on Sam. But it works out well because I'm more of a Dean girl. We both love the Trickster though.

Yesterday I watched the mini series "White Teeth" based on the book by Zadie smith and shown in 4 parts on Acorn. I really enjoyed it and watched it straight through, each segment under an hour long. Never read the book so I did not know much about it but was hooked within the first 5 minutes. Oh and watcher a very young James McAvoy to appear in the 3rd episode.

I thought he gave one of the better Edmond Dantes performances in The Count of Monte Cristo several years back. Despite the radically changed story-line.

1. Castle in the Air
2. Yellowstone
3. Woman in the Dark
4. The Girl Who Dared
5. One Body Too Many
6. Tragedy at Midnight

All good B-movies from the thirties and forties (and one from the early fifties). Very entertaining. I should have had popcorn.

Re-watching The Duchess of Duke Street on Amazon Prime, great old series, in the vain of Upstairs/Downstairs and based on a real woman who was at one time the mistress of the Prince of Wales and future King Edward VII. It kind of glazes over that part and paints the lead as kind of a tough, cockney woman. From what I have read about the real "Duchess" she was very beautiful and charming... she made her mark as one of the best cooks of the day.

Really fun series, could be good material for an updated version, maybe a movie or mini series with more about the relationship would be interesting, I think.

I watched the second season of Netflix's Bloodline a few weeks ago. Now I'm mad that I finished it in a few days. I had to wait over a year for it, and I went through it way too fast. *sigh* It was excellent. Super intense and relentless in its pacing. The constant tension had me keyed up like I was the one under all that pressure.

The other show I watched, which had only six episodes and was more of a mini-series, was Political Animals with Sigourney Weaver. It was also really interesting. I am now angry at my daughter for getting me into it when there is no hope of any more episodes. ;) (not really angry at her.)

We've been watching Aquarius, which we'd DVRed last summer. I'd watched the first episode a few months ago and was waiting for DH to watch to see if he was interested. When he finally watched it he was indeed interested. (We both read Helter Skelter back in the 70s.)  Just in time too - season 2 started last night.

I can't believe we haven't watched Bloodline yet - I was counting the days to its release, but I think we're subconsciously waiting for a good chunk of free time - once we start I know it'll be a true binge. SO good!

I finished the new season of Orange is the New Black literally minutes before we got hit with a wave of rolling black outs. Big heat wave and our power kept going out for a few minutes then coming back on. Would have been very upsetting had I not just finished. Very emotional season, if you are a fan and plan to watch it, I highly recommend avoiding social media and the IMDB board till after. Spoilers every where, especially twitter.

I'm also watching the Tour de France coverage every morning, but I skip through most of the 4+ hours of coverage each day. It just doesn't have the same appeal after all the drug use came to light.

My husband and I are really enjoying The Night Of on HBO. We can't binge watch it, because only one episode airs weekly, but it is a really, really well done show if anyone has access to HBO Go or cable.

It may be set in Indiana, but it was filmed in Georgia. I know because at some point as I watched yesterday, I saw a neighborhood and thought "That looks like it could be in the Atlanta area", so I checked and sure enough, it was filmed mostly around Atlanta. That's the second time that's happened recently.

And I really liked Stranger Things.

I watched Stranger Things but can't say I loved it. A bit sloppy plot wise for my taste and some serious over acting imo by a certain Ms. Ryder.

I recently completed the British series Jericho via Acorn. Here is the synopsis via IMBD: In the Yorkshire Dales in the 1870s, the shantytown of Jericho is the home of a community that will live, thrive and die in the shadow of the viaduct they've been brought together to build.

I enjoyed it for the most part, though a bit of a soap opera.... and I understand it was not renewed, even though it ends with a cliff hanger. :(

I'm binge-watching New Tricks (again!). I've dropped almost all the returning series this year except for NCIS and Blacklist (and Blacklist is on the fence).

I watched the new Dirk Gently series on BBCA last night. I thought that the previous attempt at a series of that character was as awful as it could get, but I was wrong.

At this point, I'll be surprised if I don't "cut the cord" by this time next year.

I see this is an old topic, but I just recently binge-watched "The Man In The High Castle" available free to Amazon Prime members. I did like it, though it was confusing at first to figure out who were the "good guys." Plus, watching some of the episodes on my phone was challenging at times because the scenes inside the homes were so dark. I need to take a look and see if I want to watch Dexter. I have been hearing that recommended from other people too.

I agree...and can I say I LOVED the attention to the costuming.  Everything was so meticulous.  The other thing is that some of the actors kept niggling away at my memory.  I knew I had seen them in other programs but what?  I had to Google them.  Jared Harris was in Mad Men and Claire Foy was in Wolf Hall.  Once I was able to identify where I had seen them, I was able to immerse myself in The Crown.

Oh, and wasn't John Lithgow superb as Winston Churchill.  I never would have called it if I hadn't seen it.

There is supposed to be a season 2 but there are rumors of problems.

Yes, a brilliant choice for WC... I also loved seeing how Edward's relationship went sour after his abdication. It is a really interesting story line and also like everything else, very well done.

As far as a season two, that article does not really say much, just reporting a lot of rumors. I actually saw it on Vanessa Kirby's (who plays Princess Margaret) instagram, so I'm going to conclude she knows whats what ;).

"Last Chance to See" on Netflix.

Quote
...a wildlife documentary first broadcast on BBC Two in the United Kingdom during September and October 2009. The series is a follow-up of the radio series, also called Last Chance to See, in which Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine set out to find endangered animals. In this updated television version, produced for the BBC, Stephen Fry and Carwardine revisit the animals originally featured to see how they're getting on almost 20 years later.

What are your thoughts on it?

It's interesting enough to keep me watching it, but I'm kind of disappointed. I won't spoil, but I find it extremely predictable, and considering they've spent as much as GoT, you'd think their writers would be more inventive.

Binging on "White Collar" on Netflix.  It harkens back to "It Takes a Thief" for the older folk, but with lots of modern twists.  Con man works for FBI in exchange for parole.  Really enjoying this.  Individual stories with overarching story line for each season or so, which keeps it fresh.  Love the relationship between the con man and the agent he is working with and also the supporting characters.  Intense at times, funny at times.

I finally have been watching Fringe.

Up to the last disk in season 4, and wtf? The story jumps 20 years into the future? Bounce! Splat. Huh?

So, is it worth bothering with to complete the season. And I gather from the cover of the 5th season, its also in the future with the same basic theme.

I'm not sure I can be bothered. I picked the set up on special, so I've got my moneys worth out of it already.

Very disappointed there was no real resolution of the character stories though.

You need to finish the series.

The thing about Fringe is that they used episode #19 each season to do something unusual.

I won't give it away (not in public, anyway) but I will say that that episode will make sense before too long.

Ok. Thanks.

It takes a lot to bounce me out, and that series kept doing curve balls.

But one of my pet hates is jumping forward big chunks of time. Like the last season of Ghost Whisperer was a wtf moment. The 1 year jump in Battlestar Galactica did the same for me as well. So when they did this this time in Fringe, especially being 20 years, it bounced me completely out of the series, and I put the rest of it away.

Makes me wonder if the reason Fringe only gets an ok on the sci-fi series like-o-meter online, is too many people didn't like the time jump.

I guess I'll go back when I finish watching the rest of what I bought recently.

That episode throws everyone for a loop. I recall that I asked on Twitter WTF was going on. Everyone told me to finish the series, so i did. I don't regret that decision.

I don't want to spoil it, so let me merely say: Episode #20 continues from where #18 left off.  It ignores episode #19.

P.S. You know, I am going to have to remind myself to warn viewers to beware episode S04e19. it's a hazard.

Right now we have Pitch, Timeless, Madam Secretary, Humans, Incorporated, Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, Agents of Shield, Halt and Catch Fire, 12 Monkeys, Continuum, Containment, Billions, Limitless, Lucifer, Roadies, Speechless -

Not going to Supergirl, AofS, or the new whatshername SA flame series. The rest I know nothing about. Timeless sounds a good name for me, but its obviously not here yet.

I am waiting for the next Grimm, Person of Interest, Killjoys, and Darkmatter, in addition to the 4 above. And there are supposed to be a couple of others I dont recall names for coming I'll get.

So certainly enough tv to keep me going in 2017, but its a total pain being 2 years behind a lot of it.

Huhwhat?

Right now we have Pitch, Timeless, Madam Secretary, Humans, Incorporated, Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, Agents of Shield, Halt and Catch Fire, 12 Monkeys, Continuum, Containment, Billions, Limitless, Lucifer, Roadies, Speechless -

And that's just the 15% of shows I think are worth watching.

If you can't find at least 4 shows you like in that list, I don't know what to say.

I stopped watching Continuum somewhere around the middle of the next-to-last season, stopped Arrow partway through the second season. I'm recording the second season of Lucifer, but so far have only watched the first episode. I actually watched all of Limitless and was sorry it was not renewed. The others I may have watched an episode or two but they failed to hold my attention.

I seem to end up watching mostly science, history, and technology documentaries these days, along with a few scripted shows I enjoy. And older movies.

But I read 100-120 books a year.  ;D ;D

Person of Interest has ended... I sort of lost interest after the first season, I didn't care for the Battle of the Machines plotline. I kept watching to the finish for the character interaction, though.

Killjoys and Dark Matter I have recorded, and watch an episode every once in a while.

I like Grimm (not renewed). I'm looking forward to new seasons of Fortitude, The Artful Detective, Longmire (last series, alas), and The Expanse. The upcoming Emerald City looks interesting.

Mostly I watch and re-watch British detective and mystery series.

I watched One Mississippi via Amazon Prime all in one sitting. Really a happy surprise, I enjoy Tig, an offbeat comedian who is the star of this but had expected more of a reality show... like the documentary she did a while back. It is actually more of a Louie style, story based show, with Tig playing a fictional version of herself... Highly rec if you like her humor... if you don't know her, search her on Youtube, she also has a live performance ava on HBO.

I've been burning through the episodes of Raffles (The Amateur Cracksman) on Acorn TV. There were only 15 or so episodes made in 1977 in the UK. It's reported that almost all the episode scripts were taken pretty much directly from the printed page, but I don't remember enough about the stories to verify this.

The stories were published in the early 1900s, and were filmed as period pieces. It's a pretty typical 70s production. The sidekick is played very much in the bumbling Nigel Bruce tradition, which is a bit annoying to modern viewers.

The series is going away from Acorn at the end of January, so I decided to watch them while I still could.

Finished watching The OA last night. Haven't decided what I think about it.

Hah. Wife and I watched it when it first hit Netflix. Still think about it regularly, and still do not know exactly how I feel about it. It seems to hit all the right targets when it comes to all of the dark, bleak aspects that I gravitate toward, yet rewards with a sense of hope that shifts from high to low and low to high, but never quite extinguishes that small thread of hope.

Even when it hits some supremely awkward or just downright uncomfortable moments, because of all the other places it goes--that for the most part remain unexplored by almost all other shows and movies--it still seems awkward and uncomfortable yet... somehow necessary, proper even.

It's a very odd show that I will definitely watch another season of.

***

Just watched "Crazyhead" on Netflix.

Why are there only six episodes??? I usually don't go for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" stuff but other than Game of Thrones and Black Mirror, this is the one I pine for the most.

***

And finally... devastated that "Good Girls Revolt" is done for good after one brilliant season. That one came out of nowhere.

"BrainDead" (CBS, watched it on Amazon Prime) was another surprise--Tony Shalhoub and some biting humor toward all parties.

Just watched the first two episodes of "The Path" (season 2) on Hulu. Can't binge it, same with Homeland =(.

Kind of dug "The Travelers" or whatever with that dude from "Will & Grace."

Loved the first few episodes of "Wayward Pines" but stopped watching after 5th episode and bought the book instead (and glad I did, won't finish the show series).

"The Expanse" (SyFy, watched on Prime) made me extremely happy. Finally, SyFy channel trying to get back to somewhat serious sci-fi like the first season of Battlestar Galactica.

"Mr. Robot" - like, seriously, we watched this last week in a couple of nights. Tempted to pay the $15 for season 2 instead of waiting for it to hit Prime.

"The Bridge" (Swedish/Danish version, not the USA version) - Love foreign films/TV. They're always better than the American versions.

"3%" -  Brazilian sci-fi!

(school was canceled quite a bit beginning the day after holiday vacation due to weather, we've binged ourselves silly while snowed in)

You've hit the nail on the head. Started watching the two nights ago and told myself I would only watch 1 episode. Was a bad idea when I have to wake up at 7am to get to work. Still haven't recovered, despite the coffees. It's definitely gripping. I think it's something to distract me until Stranger Things comes out.

Yesterday I finished The OA on Netflix. It really is a very original concept and I thought well done for the most part. Defiantly well acted! Also started Black Mirror, which is like a modern British Outer Limits. That was a favorite back when I was a kid along with The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery. It's right along those lines but taken up a few notches.

I've only watched the 1st episode of OA & wasn't immediately taken with it. I guess, I should give it another try.

I have watched a few episodes of Black Mirror & enjoyed them. I do like the fact that you can watch any season or epsidode  in any order... whatever you're in the mood for.

White Bear is one of the most [expletive]ed up episodes of any show I've ever watched. It still messes with my head. The one where the woman is worried about how many "likes" she gets is eerily accurate as to where we're going with social media. A couple of episodes don't quite hit on all cylinders, but the majority of them are haunting in ways that the old TZ/OL shows were (I STILL think about the 90's OL episode with the Senator who turns out to be a hybrid alien trying to pass a clean air bill as well as the "Time Enough At Last" TZ one where the dude loses his glasses).

I finished binge watching The Walking Dead yesterday.  My son has been home from school this entire week from an emergency appendectomy and last Saturday he wanted to do a Walking Dead marathon.  He said I had to start at the beginning so I could understand the current season which I started watching because I'm a fan of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, so I did and have been watching pretty much non-stop since and got through all six seasons.  It's been a weird and awesome break from writing.  I really like the show, although my husband can't seem to deal with it at all.  I'm caught up and ready for the season to resume next Sunday!

I always feel I have to put a disclaimer when I recommend this show ó the first few episodes are very... different... than the rest of the series. All the characters are very unlikable in those early episodes. That said, it's become my favorite show and I'm sad that it's ending with season 4.

Midsomer Murders (out of order but I'm going to finish this thing eventually). Taking a quick break to watch something else before I watch another episode tonight.

I liked John Barnaby lots, so I watched all his episodes first (except for the actual first episode of the series). Then I watched all the Jones episodes. Now I'm almost through the Troy episodes, and all I'll have left will be the Scott episodes. He's not my favorite. I watched one of his and he's just kind of meh to me. I might watch a few favorite Jones episodes again before I make myself watch the Scott episodes.

Scott only had one season.

Rosemary and Thyme. A mystery series in the UK. I discovered on Youtube and now I can't get enough. Unfortunately, there were only three seasons.

There were also three books, written by the series creator.

I like it because it's not very suspenseful and I can watch it before I go to bed. I also like Pam Ferris.

Iron Fist.

Should I stick with it?  Iím 2 episodes in and a little on the fence. I kind of like the ďlost monkĒ character.  But I donít love it yet.  Needs more Luke Cage, maybe?

I am going through Grimm again. Grimm pilot and Sleepy Hollow pilot are like my favorite series pilots of all time. Grimm just so awesome in the early seasons. I haven't watched the current and last season as I kind of didn't like some plot thingies, but boy the early stuff on there is just so great.
I already re-watched the first season of Sleepy Hollow.

I always get a kick out of the mangling of german on Grimm.  ;D

Can't find any new shows to watch that interest me so I guess I have to watch older stuff. I am apparently not even close to the target audience to a lot of stuff they put out nowadays.

I've watched the first five episodes, for me it has not gotten better. For someone who's supposed to be great at marital arts those scenes suck. I loved Luke Cage, first season of Daredevil, and Jessica Jones, but Iron Fist is just not doing it for me. I'll probably end up forcing myself to watch it like I did with the second season of Daredevil. The superhero show I'm freakin loving right now is Legion on FX, holy cow it's amazing. It's really trippy and weird but shot beautifully and half the time I have no idea what's going on which would normally bother me but it doesn't with this show. It's just so good. I believe they just uploaded the already aired episodes on hulu if anyone is interested. There's only one more episode airing next week, but it's already been picked up for a second season.

Watched Westworld season 1 recently, pretty good. Thinking about Wayward Pines or 11.22.63 next. Anyone seen these and can recommend either or know any other new-ish sci-fi, weird type series? I also watched Stranger Things and Dead Like Me not long ago and enjoyed them. Mr. Robot looks interesting too.

Thatís too bad, but Iíve been hearing it a lot so far.  Part of me says I should just be grateful... I mean, they donít HAVE to make a TV show about Iron Fist, you know?  But, I donít know.  I started to sour on DD in the second season too. Iím afraid it might be the costume.  I liked him better with the bandana. And Iíll try Legion.  Been hearing a lot of good about that too.  Thanks!

This week I've been binge-watching Murder in Suburbia, a series on Acorn TV. It's a sort of cozy police procedural with humorous dialogue from the two lead characters, two women detectives with dating problems (you have to have some sort of psychological hangup or problem to be a lead character these days, right?). There are only two series, made 10-12 years ago. Nice light entertainment, despite all the murders.  ;)

I was just reading yesterday that, because of the physical nature of the scenes they've been filming, Kidman is going home with bruises that have upset her real-life husband.  :-X

I was binge-watching Shetland, a police procedural set on the Shetland Islands (off the coast of Scotland) this morning, and Netflix auto-ran the second episode of a two-parter. I got really confused until I figured out that it was a completely different story. I checked and found that it had gone from S2E3 to S2E5, skipping S2E4, which wasn't even listed.

I went to Netflix's wretched web site and found the only way to give feedback is to call them, so I did and found I wasn't the first to have reported it. The support guy couldn't give any info on when or if it would be fixed. I put the DVD that has those eps at the top of my DVD queue. I'm pretty sure I'll get that before the problem is fixed with the streaming site.

While I had him on the phone I expressed my extreme displeasure at the "new and improved" rating system, which replaces a useful five star system with a pretty much useless thumbs up and thumbs down system.


Edit: Within about 6-7 hours after I called Netflix, the missing episode appeared. They get a gold star for the day.

A lot of good free stuff on there, yesterday I watched "Penny Princess, Sin of Ester Waters and my fav The Woman in the Hall with Jean Simmons.

Just finished "Anne with an E" on Netflix, a new adaption of Anne of Green Gables. I loved it... though I was not crazy about the actress playing Anne in the first episode she grew on me. She certainly looks the part and the show got better with every episode. I love the production, beautifully filmed with a lot of attention to detail. I also loved how they adapted the story into todays thinking... meaning they explore more topics young women would have experienced at the time but was not written about when the books or even the popular 80s series were done. They also give you some background on the unmarried siblings that adopt Anne.

Also the opening titles are a work of art! Streaming now on netflix, just 7 episodes, the first is over an hour long the rest are only 40 mins each!

The Amazon Original, Bosch. It's very much a modern Noir married to a police procedural. I love the plots and the characters. I also love the way they drop all the 1940s slang and make it sound perfect: "You do this and everything's jake with us."

Also, they had Jeri Ryan last season and gave her a cameo in the first episode. More Jeri pleez... she's so underrated, as is Titus Welliver. It's great to see all these fantastic actors get their day in the sun.

Ive been watching Grimm, though "binge" for me is pretty slow. Not through the first season yet.

I'm on Season 5. And at first I was worried that the show was getting rather samey, but now the writers have changed gear and picked up the pace nicely.

I've also recently discovered 'The Dead Zone,' based on one of my very favorite Stephen King novels. Again, Season 1 started to flag midway through, but has recovered nicely.

It's been a few years since I watched Heroes but I remember a huge dive in quality and being very disappointed. It was one of the casualties of the last writer's strike.

Currently binging Supernatural season 12 since it's now on Netflix. I'm trying to get through it quickly because I cancelled Netflix and want to finish before my month is up. Pretty angry at Netflix for cancelling Sense 8. I know I'll end up going back but I'll probably wait a few months at least and just enjoy my HBO subscription.

Like one of my favorite shows now. It is just gripping to me. Its like I get one of my favorite genres (historical mysteries) served on a platter on TV. I do not like any of the modern cop shows, can't stand them really. But in historical times, it is so so very interesting. Not sure what to do after this. Sigh.

It has been awhile since I looked at this thread and I got a few new ideas.  (went to Netflix and added a few to my watchlist)

I binged and loved the following lately:

Shetland - loved it.  I am anxiously waiting for the next season.  In the beginning the Scottish accent was so hard for me to understand that I had to use subtitles.  It got better as I got used to it.

Broadchurch - Another UK murder / detective series.  It mostly follows one murder in the first season and weaves the outcome of the first murder with an unsolved murder in the second season.  This unsolved murder is referenced in the first season.  It is available on Netflix and the third and final season premiers on BBC America on June 28th.

Sneaky Pete - not at all what I thought it was going to be but let me say that it was a pleasant surprise.

A Handmaids Tale - Depressing but very compelling.  Elizabeth Moss was really good and Joseph Fiennes played creepy really well.

Shooter - This is a USA channel original available on Netflix.  Produced by Mark Wahlberg who played the main character, Bob Lee, in the movie. Season 2 will be on USA the beginning of July.

Is it only me or does it seem like TV is in a Renaissance  with original and compelling programming?  I don't feel the need to go to the movies as there is a wealth of excellent programing available on the networks and streaming networks.

I watched the first episode of The Keepers on Netflix.  It was so good I binged on the remaining six episodes the same day.  Such an interesting true story. It takes place in Baltimore and is about a decades old murder mystery of a nun who was a high school teacher beloved by her students.  Two of them have taken up the cause and are doing research and trying to solve the murder.  There is some discussion of a priest at the school who was suspected of sex abuse and the possible connection to the nun's murder. That was difficult to watch. Highly recommend this series if you are a mystery fan.

It's a moderately humorous view of the life of a police constable in a very small Scottish village. There are actually murders in the 30+ books of the series. I have several of the books in ebook version, it may be time for a re-read.

I liked it up to I think 3rd season a lot. Not I can't recall how many seasons total. That is the downside of binging. I can't keep track. I am caught up with as far as they were free on Amazon. The very last season is the one I haven't seen and I probably wont. I read some reviews and it was already getting too dark for me and the reviews tell me I won't like it. For me I don't like it when horrible people keep getting away with it and dragging other characters that were at some point interesting down with them. Not redeemable anymore. I don't want to say more to not spoil, but it was such a turnoff. Maybe in the future when the last season is free, I'll peek in, just to get it finished. But I don't really care anymore.

I then went through Whitechapel which I really liked, just to find out last weekend that it just ends but not really getting a full conclusion. Ugh. They cancelled it after season 4 and of course i didn't know. I don't like researching shows beforehand as I don't want to get spoilered so I had no idea. Darn.

I am running out of shows to watch. Even in this thread I don't see much that interests me.  :(. So many of the popular and apparently acclaimed shows do nothing for me. I tried House of cards, can't stand it. I tried a few others that are so popular and just can't watch most of them past a few of episodes. I can tell in a few episodes just based on the main characters. When there is nothing for me there, its over. Other stuff I like gets cancelled all the time.

I been looking and looking and have yet to find something else. Bad enough I can never find any movies to watch.

My wife and I binge watched the HBO series John Adams and loved it. I started binging TURN, but gave up after three episodes. The story and the acting didn't hold my interest, and a quick check on Wiki told me most of the historical characters live after the war. So that sort of took any dramatic potential out of the series. Heading back to our binge re-watch of the original Star Trek.

I've been binge-watching Hamish Macbeth on Acorn TV. It's been so long since I've seen them that I had forgotten that the series bears almost no relation to the books. It's a moderately humorous view of the life of a police constable in a very small Scottish village. There are actually murders in the 30+ books of the series. I have several of the books in ebook version, it may be time for a re-read.

I've been binging this show, too!  SO FUNNY!!   We're HUGE Agatha Raisin fans over here and so were delighted to have another MC Beaton show to enjoy.

This week I'm binge-watching the Inspector Lynley Mysteries on BritBox. I'd forgotten how much the Lynley/Helen plot line annoyed me. That whole situation reeks of writers taking the easy way out. For all I know, they lifted it directly from the books, which I tried to read and just couldn't get into.

Yesterday I finished binge-watching The Jonathan Creek Mysteries on Britbox. I liked the mysteries in the first two series, but I very much didn't care for the character played by Carolyn Quentin. She was portrayed as a very unpleasant, almost malicious person. Lead actor Alan Davies is almost somnolent through many scenes, seemingly uninvolved with what is going on. The other recurring character played by Stuart Milligan is completely self-obsessed.

So why do I (mostly) enjoy the series? I don't know. The mysteries get a bit less interesting as the series goes on, but I thought cast changes for the sidekick improved things otherwise.

My new program to binge-watch is The Avengers. The real Avengers, with John Steed and Emma Peel, not the super-hero one from Marvel.

I discovered it while searching through programs on my Roku box. It's on a free channel called TubiTV. The commercials are sort of annoying, but worth it to see a classic TV series. They have the two series prior to Diana Rigg joining the cast, and the one series after she left. I'm nearly finished with the first Rigg series (in B&W). Fun stuff.

Network budget cuts, according to the info I got. The series was just too expensive, although it didn't seem to have any unusual features that would require a lot of money. Maybe salaries.

I don't quite understand why I like this show so much considering it's exceptionally non-PC, and contains a lot of vulgarities and explicit material (something which I normally would not watch).

No, he stepped down two years ago after hosting the show for 13 years. The new quiz-master is Sandi Toksvig, who was one of the 'contestants' many times. She does really well at it, with a similar approach and delivery as Fry. I would have thought they would have a problem finding someone with the erudition and dry wit of Fry, but they did it. Prep work may explain the seemingly wide-range of knowledge. Alan Davies is still there as one of the driving forces of the show.

Yes, indeed. I've watched a dozen or so assorted Midsomer Murders eps in the last several week, as there is little else interesting to watch, especially on network TV.

This week, I watched all 10 available eps of The Coroner on Britbox, and am making my way through the second season of the police procedural series Scott & Bailey (also BritBox) although my interest is waning as it becomes more like a soap opera than a crime show.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 watched The Marvelous Mrs. Meisel in 3 nights this week (7 episodes in 2 nights and one the next). Enjoyed it a lot. I do not know that much about stand-up comedy culture. I think the show was enhanced by her fashion and the music. Much better than I recall the '50s being. It is set in 1958.

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):

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

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!

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.

We just "binged" through the 3rd season of Detectorists. Its in quotes as there are only 6 half hour episodes, its a short binge. We absolutely love this show. Its is so rare for us to find shows that we both like, so we savor that time. I don't think there will be more, me so sad.  :(

To watch it I subscribed to the Acorn channel via Amazon and the free trial, which now is in paid I think. Now I am looking forward watching some other shows on Acorn, although I am not really familiar with many of them.
We just started in on "Hamish MacBeth" so we'll see how we like that one. Any recs on shows on Acorn?

I had thought of getting Britbox at first to watch the show about the books I been reading, Inspector Lynley. But then we had to watch Detectorists so its one or the other. Maybe once we are through binging Acorn, I can switch to the other.

All these little channels add up. I am about to cancel Netflix. I can't have them all, too expensive. And once we finished binging Longmire on there, I don't see anything else I need to see right now. I am really not into any of the shows they are making. Just none of them interest me. I am picky I guess when it comes to TV shows. I don't want to see stuff overly brutal or with stupid and annoying characters. Its why I never watched Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones and shows like that. Well I should say didn't continue on the Breaking Bad, I hated the episodes I saw, hubby loved it.

I guess I'll bee binging british shows for a while.

My latest binge-watch has been Monk. I'd seen many of the shows when they first aired, but I'd forgotten how funny they were. Tony Shalhoub just crushes it every time. ;D

I was just going through Netflix with the intend to cancel, since I subscribed to the german SlingTV package. But then I saw the show Versailles and I had wanted to give that one a shot for a while. OMG I flew through the first season sitting on the edge of my seat. Woah, the acting, the costumes, the settings, its my everything.  ;D
I can see why this was the most expensive show France has every produced. Its all in english though, so thankfully no subtitles. Good choice on their part to make it more international.

Going to start season 2 soon and I think there will be a 3rd if I am not mistaken. Sadly the seasons are short.

Why can't they make more costume dramas like that for the likes of me. *pouts.

Angelique yes. I have the books and I pet them at times. They are so old and yellow I can't read them.  :( I think they were only printed on the 70's once in english. I do have the DVD"s also of the movies that were made way back, but they are a wee bit on the cheesy side watching them now.  8)

I agree about Netflix. Once I am done with Versailles, which doesn't seem to be very long the way I plow through it, I'll cancel. I have the Acorn sub now and its 4.99 after the free trial. Netflix is now $15. Ouch. I think what I will do going forward is switch between the services. I can't afford to have it all at once, so binge watch something here, cancel, get the other watch something else. I am about to figure out how to get rid of my regular "cable". Not quite there yet, but really close. I first have to figure out the phone thing since we are triple bundled and the internet. I am a bit limited where I live right now.

Almost anything I can now watch other ways. The only issue is its so fractured if you want all you want, you end up paying just as much. Sigh. A la carte my behind.

Atunah, that's why I have avoided Sling. I don't need to add another $30 onto the bill and I just don't watch that much anymore. Any movies I want, I rent from Zon or watch free with Prime. I have Starz for Outlander and they have good movies, too. Hulu for SYTYCD and DWTS and some HGTV shows. Acorn gives me all the Brit shows I want. I just watch what's available and I'm content with that.

I cancelled Direct TV even though it was bundled with Internet and phone. No problem except for trying to talk me into staying with deals that just didn't work for me.

I don't have the normal Sling, only the international german package. Its the only place I can get that really. Used to be just on Dish Network, then went off and course they own Sling. I get 2 mixed german channels and then some other euro news, some cool euro centric docs and stuff like that.
If I did go to a streaming for basic cable type channels instead of ATT uverse, which I have now, I would prolly go with DirectTV now as they are the only ones that have the Tennis Channel. Its the only sport I watch. So as long as I can get the watch ESPN app and my regular TennisTV subscription and tennis TV, and some basic channels, I think I can make do.

I just finished Versailles and I am at a loss now. How do I watch anything else after that, nothing compares. Wow that was like one of the best shows I have ever watched. I just could not stop watching once I started.

I finished McCallum on Acorn. I love John Hannah in anything I have seen him in. Its kind of weird watching something a wee bit more blurry than how the newer stuff is filmed now. Takes some getting used to. I also had to use sub titles for the first episode or so, just to get used to their way of speaking.  ;D Those are long episodes, actually as long as a movie. 1.5 hours. I still flew through them. I kinda like watching crime solving with older technology that is as far from the show CSI I can get. Much more character based than flash.

I think I got some stuff I want to check out from this thread for next.

Sounds great, I need to check that one out. I've been watching a ton of concerts on YouTube lately. Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, The Cranberries, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Depeche Mode, The Who, Aerosmith, Metallica, Jack White, Deamau5, Radiohead... all have awesome full live shows that I've found on YouTube in the past few weeks.

As far as TV shows go, I plan to start binging Twin Peaks and Buffy for the first time soon, and also probably rewatch Stranger Things at some point along the way.

Bingeing Season 20 of Midsomer Murders. Something has changed. New writers? New directors? I don't know. I'm on the last episode now.

I still don't like Jamie. He doesn't seem able to figure anything out for himself. I do like Fleur, the new ME. It took a few episodes for her character to settle in, but now I really like her.

I sign up for a good deal on CBS streaming once a year so I can watch "The Good Fight," the sequel to "The Good Wife."  Really love it.  The season finale is next week.  Then, I'll cancel till the new season, if there is one.  There should be, it's excellent.

I started binging NCIS. I don't like any of the cop shows out there, so I never watched that one. Yep, like 15 seasons and I never seen even one episode. Same goes for all the CIS and other letters. But then I realized I needed something long and it had Mark Harmon in it. I remember him from Flamingo Road. Had a crush on him back then.  ;D

Anywho, watching something from that far back is like the watching the evolution of anything computer, internet and phone. That is my favorite part so far. I am at the almost end of Season 2 so by now they have blackberries and now they mention "IM"  ;D. I like some of the characters on it, the quirky ones.

But I almost stopped watching for the sheer disgusting sexism on that show. It is making me ill to think this made it on the air just fine. It is ongoing sexual harassment of the most disgusting kind and they turned the one female character into something that doesn't correlate with her suppose training. But I guess that goes with the tone of the show. Ugh. But I just try to ignore those parts, hard as it is. It hasn't gotten much better yet on that front. How that became such a popular and long running show is baffling. Well I am still watching, but for the Autopsy doc and Abbie and Gibbs at the moment. Maybe that is what many did. Ignoring the obvious.

At this point, I just want him dead. Strung up on his, um you know.  :-X
He is a big issue, but he is not the only thing on this show though. But he is a huge one. The whole tone of the show at times is like a frat house party. Ugh.

I am just trying to figure out how folks got past all that and still continued to watch. It might get better, but one still has to get through that mess. Thankfully there are other things keeping me going right now, but I don't think I would have watched that past a few episodes had I watched it "live".

I need to go and rewatch B5 again - still my favourite SF show.  Starts off slow in the first season and drops off again in the last (but understandable so given network shenanigans.)

And yeah some of the dialogue can be a little clunky, but there is some that is just amazing as well. And G'kar seems to get a lot of it.  Maybe a lot of it is down to just how good an actor he was.

The sad thing watching it is seeing just how many actors have been lost to us from it in so short a time.

I've just finished binge-watching The Good Wife on Amazon Prime and I really enjoyed it. To be honest I think I only started it 'cause I knew Jeffrey Dean Morgan would be in it at some point,  ;)  but I ended up loving the whole thing - Alan Cumming was brilliant as usual as Eli Gold, though the accent threw me for awhile. There were one or two English actors in it doing American accents (like the guy from Downton Abbey). Odd - I would have thought there were enough US actors to fill the spots! And wow, what an unexpectedly downbeat ending!

I saw there was a sequel but I wasn't going to bother with it - sequels so often don't live up to the original - but if you think it's worth it, I might just give it a go.

 I just finished watching two seasons of the British comedy show Would I Lie to You?  Itís a panel show, with two teams of three people taking turns telling stories, and the other team trying to find out if they are lying or not by asking questions during the process.  I am not from the UK, but I recognize most of the people on the panel as being mostly the UKís top comedians. Itís been a long time since I found a show that I liked this much,  and I generally find panel shows to be supremely boring. Itís on the Britbox streaming service (in my case via a Roku box).

The Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) is running Friends at 7 o'clock every night.  It's amazing how well that series has held up over the years.  It's just as funny as when it originally aired. 

Also, Comedy Central has been running old episodes of The Office multiple days a week.  I have been laughing like crazy. 

As you can tell, I really like comedies.

I just found Miami Vice on Hulu. OMG  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

I haven't watched that show since back when it was first broadcast. A wee bit later than the US, as I watched it in Germany. So I never actually seen or heard the original voices on it.  ;D. And promptly found out that the new york accent thing that was a thing to american viewers, went straight over our head as it doesn't mean anything when its dubbed in.
I loved the show then and its still awesome. I went to vacation in Miami back in 1991 because of this show. Went to the bar on Miami Beach they used to hang out. That was before I immigrated to the US.

I had no idea it was on Hulu. I know I looked for that show in the past and couldn't find it. There are a few shows I loved that I can't find to stream or even buy.

We watched the pilot and another episode last night. Can't wait to watch the rest. Again. But its like a new show in many ways to me.

 I found a panel show from the UK that Iíve binge-watched two seasons on BritBox: Would I Lie to You?  Basically itís two opposing teams of three people that tell (generally outrageous) personal anecdotes, and the opposing team asks questions to try to figure out if it is the truth or a lie. Part of the entertainment value is watching people tell the truth in such a fashion that it seems to be a lie.  Generally, all of the people on the panel are well known comedians from the UK.  Itís one of the few shows where I actually laughed out loud.  Unlike my other favorite panel show, QI, itís generally safe for family viewing.

I watched the two seasons of Goliath. The first one was good. Billy Bob Thornton was great. The 2nd seasons was pretty awful. After the first episode when someone was shot up, I was going to stop watching, but a few days later I watched again. Near end of the 6th episode, I stopped again. Didn't like where it was going. About a week later I watched the rest to the end. Just awful. I didn't see any value in it at all.

I watched Godless on Amazon Prime. Excellent. I hated that there was a snake in it, but that's the problem with westerns (my opinion). The only scene with a snake was near the beginning of episode 1, which was super dark to begin with. If I ever re-watch, I will skip the first episode. Michelle Dockery, Jeff Daniels, Jack O'Connell, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Sam Waterston, Merrit Wever, Scoot McNairy (some of them new to me).

 This week I binge-watched the 17 episodes of The Prisoner. It has been a long time (maybe several decades) since I watched it. I enjoyed it just as much this time as I did back in the 1960s when it was first shown. It has been digitally remastered, but it is still in the 4:3 format with just plain stereo sound.


The final episode is just as inexplicable now as it was back then. McGoohan admits that when it was time to do the last episode, he had not yet written it and didn't know how to end the series. He claims he didn't figure it out until he had written the first third of the last episode. I think it shows. That episode is a complete mess. I have read the articles and watch the shows that purport to explain that it's an attempt to explore the nature of Individualism versus collectivism. All the preceding episodes do this, but not the last episode. I think it just shows what kind of a train wreck can occur when you put an auteur in command with no oversight. It's not surprising that McGoohan had to leave the country for a few weeks after that episode was shown in the UK because angry viewers kept accosting him in the street and berating him.

 I have four of the five-volume set of DVDs, purchased 10 or 15 years ago but never watched. But itís free with Amazon Prime, and seems to be a slightly better copy there so I watched it on Prime. The original Saint TV show with Roger Moore is there also, and I periodically watch several of those.

 I have four of the five-volume set of DVDs, purchased 10 or 15 years ago but never watched. But itís free with Amazon Prime, and seems to be a slightly better copy there so I watched it on Prime. The original Saint TV show with Roger Moore is there also, and I periodically watch several of those.

I have an Amazon Prime subscription, but I haven't really used it for watching show much (I typically use Netflix). However, if The Prisoner is on there, I will definitely have to check it out!

 I decided my next binge-watch was going to be Lost. Iíve been doing five or six episodes a day, so Iím already up to the beginning of Season 4. I am still impressed by the series. Not having to wait between episodes or seasons is a definite plus to watching it this time.


 I remember being disappointed with the end of the series, and Iím wondering if I will feel the same this time. I have read comments from another producer/writer that either Cuse or Lindelof (creator/show runners) told him that the network messed about with the final season against the wishes of the producers of the series.

The final episode of Lost was the only one of the entire series that I didn't like.

Right now I'm binge-watching Westworld season 2.

I keep hearing so much bad about the finale of Lost that I keep hesitating to actually watch it now that I can. Sometimes I think I'd like to, and then I think... Quantum Leap.


I recall that it was very allegorical/metaphysical, and many people have brains that canít handle that sort of thing, including me. It was especially frustrating for people that thought the series was all about the mysteries and not about character and redemption. Many people loved the ending.  I am partway through the fifth season now, and should hit the end of the series early next week.

Not sure if it counts as binge-watching, but I've been spending ~4 hours each week watching the web series "Critical Role", and another 90 minutes watching its recap show, "Talks Machina". (Some NSFW language)

As president of the Last On The Train Club, I fiiiinnnaaaaallly got around to watching the original Twin Peaks (from 1990.)  The first episode is a bit rough and I had to push through it, but man... yeah... it is great.

I remember when it first came on. DD was in her room watching it and I was in the L/R watching it. She kept running in and saying, "Did you see that?" It was very exciting at the time.

Especially love the music.

So I need to try to watch this then? Sigh. I'm still trying to catch up with the 80s shows I missed. We lived in an area where we barely received the three main networks over the air and there were so many shows I missed seeing in their entirety because of terrible reception and siblings who wouldn't share the TV. :D

Of course, I was also addicted to reading, so I can't blame it all on bad reception and siblings.

Yes, although there was a lot of weirdness and it deteriorated after the murder was solved. One of the things I loved was two of the stars of West Side Story were in it. Russ Tamblyn and Richard Beymer.

I really need to listen to the music again.

Wife and I just finished with Halt and Catch Fire. It was surprisingly good. My professional career closely spans the period covered, so it was lots of fun seeing all the old tech and the obvious references, but you absolutely don't need to know any of that. It's really a character study, with outstanding acting.

Finished watching the 12 Monkeys TV series. It dragged in spots and seemed to have some fluff to pad out the story in some places. I think it would have been amazing if it was tightened up into 3 seasons instead of 4, but still a good show overall. Tons of cool historical sets and costumes and stuff when the characters jump around different time periods. The crazy girl, Jennifer, was awesome and had some really funny and interesting scenes. Don't know if this will be a show I ever rewatch, but worth watching once for sure.

Not sure what to watch next, my watch list is huge. Probably going to watch the first couple episodes of Continuum, Revolution, and The Strain then see which show grabs me the most.

If you haven't solved this yet: go to "seasons and episodes"; go to season 1 and the episodes should appear in order.

I didn't like the 1st season too much, but I did watch all episodes a while back. When the show was new, they didn't have much direction. There was a strike and some of the episodes were in black & white. When I watched on PBS station (which probably wasn't PBS at the time) in 1975, they were in the 3rd season, so seasons 1 and 2 were new to me when Amazon had it about 7 years ago.

I started out with the omnibus, too, but then ended up buying all the available books. I think not all of them were ebooks at that time but most of them were already converted.

Here's an oldie (quite oldie) but a goodie. (can't find it through link maker)

https://www.amazon.com/Connecticut-Yankee-Arthurs-Court-Illustrated-ebook/dp/B00LVDQCTS/ref=sr_1_3?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1537043890&sr=1-3&keywords=a+connecticut+yankee+in+king+arthur%27s+court

Both books and movies. But be forewarned. Lots of sex and violence. And I do mean lots. But a fantastic story. Season four is due to premiere on STARZ in November. Ronald Moore has done an outstanding job bringing these books to life and believe me, Outlander fans worldwide would have burned him at the stake if he'd messed up.

I have been binging on The Great British Bake Off (Or Baking Show as it is called in the U.S) Netflix just added the newest season that has new hosts and one new judge because they moved from the BBC to another Network. I do miss Mel and Sue and Mary but the new Judge is ok... the hosts are barely palatable but still love the show. The contestants were strong and the challenges seemed extra tough.

I then have been going backward through the previous seasons... just love this show.

Traveling in England and France, Amazon Prime gave me some selections to view while abroad.  Interestingly, some would only work on my iPad.  Watched Season 1 of Jack Ryan.  Enjoyed it a lot!  Found it worked best if I downloaded first to my iPad so I didn't have to rely on iffy hotel WiFi.  (I set the season to download overnight.)

Interesting. You didn't have to set a different country for it to work? Not that I'll be travelling any time soon. Just curious.  ;D

I am about to stop with NCIS. Not sure what season I am on but I think its the last one where another big team member will leave. Its lost its charm a bit.

So I am going to continue to binge on Inspector Lynley, which I found on Britbox. I read up to a certain amount of books in the series and it looks like when the TV show was made there were only 3 seasons they could base on the books. There weren't any new ones out. So I assume after that season it will be alternative universe. Which is fine I guess. Two Barbara Havers are even better.  ;D

Then I am going to give Midsummer Murders are show. At least I dont have to sign up for yet another service to see that. Its getting a bit annoying and it adds up. Good thing is in amazon prime they make it easy to cancel and resubscribe in the account, rather than going to the sites and spreading it out.

There are shows I'd like to watch on the MHz prime channel and there is also PBS Masterpiece. But I can't have them all. So I am going to switch between them and watch off stuff first. Again, easy to do on amazon.
I don't like that it is all so spread out.

Hey!  My wife and I have just started Jack Ryan and are enjoying it too.  Tonight we will be watching Episode 7.  All this time I was thinking that the actor playing Jack Ryan is the same one who played Chuck (TV series) and Flynn Rider in Tangled.  So its hard to reconcile the stark difference in characters.  Just found out today that Krasinski and Zachary Levi are 2 different actors, ha ha ha.  Enjoy Europe!  KBoards is kinda paranoid nowadays (and like Atunah, I feel "lost" - given that I took a long break and just came back to find out about all "these").

No, I didn't.  Amazon apparently knew I was abroad, and the top row of videos was "Things to watch while you are abroad."  The only weird thing was that some would only work on the iPad.  I watched Jack Ryan on the iPhone 8 Plus, though while I did other stuff on the iPad.

I remember watching the original Poldark in high school, maybe earlier. Masterpiece Theatre was family TV night on Sunday. I enjoyed it, but never had any desire to watch the remake.

Upstairs/Downstairs was also  a 'must watch' when it was running. I tried to watch Downton Abbey, but, while I liked the first season or so well enough, at some point I just got to the point where I didn't want to watch: didn't like bad things happening to the people I liked and didn't care what happened to the rest of 'em. :-\

I watched the entire new limited series Maniac on Netflix in one day. Ten episodes about 45 minutes each and they flew by! It stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill and is set in a unique retro-ish future. I found it highly addictive! Very unique story that can be a bit hard to follow at times but enjoyable. Great performances, esp Sally Field who shows up about mid way through. Created and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who did the first season of True Detective.

I tried the first Poldark book myself and also couldn't finish. I didn't get far either. I found it all wooden and no sense of the characters. I just couldn't get any feels out of it. Just nothing. For as many words as there were, I got no real ness out of it. Pictures in my head or just any kind of emotions. Maybe the writing style, I have no clue. But I need the setting and the characters come to life for me to get into a book. Otherwise I am out.

So I prefer the TV version, cause where else could one get that perfect brooding specimen this actor delivers.  ;D

Sadly I am finished with the Inspector Lynley series. I wish there were more seasons.  :( I really enjoyed it and also that the episodes are 1.5 hours long. It makes the mysteries more rich I think.

Now I am at a loss at what to watch next. I watched the very first of the Midsomer Murders and I am not sure if that is for me. Unless the tone and characters change a lot in upcoming episodes, its very, how to put it, over the top and cartoonish. Like everyone is overacting and overdoing the cutesey silliness. I don't know. Maybe I need to find something less cozy and more mystery. I'll browse through Britbox and Acorn and see whats there. But I really don't feel like watching a bunch of 1st episodes just to find something i like. Just like I don't read samples of books, I don't like partial tv in my head. Waste of time.

I always feel let down when I finish a series I really like, so hard to find things I like as it is. Most newer type shows are not made for me. And lots of what so popular doesn't interest me at all.

Of all things, I am now watching old episodes if The Dick van Dyke Show on Amazon Prime. I hadnít seen an episode in at least forty years! Even some of the ďliberatedĒ ideas are not quite that. A message in one episode is that husbands should help wives with housework. Fair enough, except that a major reason given for this is to give the wife more time to primp and look pretty for her man!  ::)

The individual episodes range from very funny to ďwhy was film wasted recording this?Ē

I am flailing trying to find another show on acorn or britbox. If anyone has anything they liked on there let me know.

We watch Shetland already, not really binging as both of us like it so its slow going. I do have to use subtitles for at least a few minutes of the show.  ;D. More like that show I'd like to find.

So I started the Murdock mysteries. As description, this was spot on what I would like. The setting, policework in those early days, etc. Like i like reading historical mysteries. Unfortunately, they film this like the CSI shows I hate. Or even soap operas. Like obvious thing happens, surprised face of main character, lets move in really close with the camera, lightbulb goes off and fade out. Its really cheesy. I watched 3 so far in the hopes it gets better. Because I really like the sprinkled in "new" technology. But I don't know how long I can stare at the main characters eye liner in close up.  :-\. Especially since he makes those puppy eyes at the same time and then next scene.

I wish they had made that a more serious series. It would have been amazing.

I was trying to watch "Silent Witness" which is a long running series about I think coroners. But hulu only has it from season 7 on, the first 6 seasons I'd have to buy and they are not cheap. Ouch. So I can't watch it. I can't skip ahead on stuff.

So onward looking for the one. Or two.

I just finished Midsomer Murders -- at least as many seasons as Netflix has, which is 19. I gather there's one more but it's just from this year so I'm hoping it'll be added sometime next year.

I figure to start Shetland next, though I've already read many of the books on which their based. We'll see. I'm a wee bit concerned the northern accents will be a bit much but, if so, I'll put the closed captioning on. Usually I do o.k. with it, though, once I get used to it, and especially if I can watch their lips while they talk.
Title: Re: What are you binge-watching?
Post by: Atunah on October 18, 2018, 02:52:42 pm
I totally needed the captions for a while. There be some heavy accent and lots of mumbling. The mumbling is a thing on most shows now, no matter the accents. But it makes it worse. Like you, once I get a hang of a character and am able to read the lips along with listening, it gets better. I love the setting, the colors, just everything about it. I read they filmed most stuff on scotlands main land, but some stuff they had to get actual shots.

Love the acting, the main character doesn't move anything in his face at times and yet says so much.

I never read any books about it. Heck, I didn't even know the show existed until recently.

The series is by Ann Cleeves. Here's the first one: (https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41-ODBiBqLL._SL160_.jpg) (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00413QAAQ/?tag=kbkindlea-20)

It looks like the TV series actually starts more in the middle -- based on what I saw in the write up, at least, the title of the first episode of the first TV series is the same as the 3rd in the book series.

So my mindset is to consider it as set in the same place, and the names might be the same, but it's not really the same stories at all. :D

I just can't retain stuff anymore as good as I used to. Or I should say useful stuff. I remember useless stuff from 30 years all the time. Like stupid stuff.

I'll stick with the TV on this one. I don't like to go back. And now again I feel like I have said that before too about those same books. I am losing it.  :-X

Shetland -- which is based on a series of books I'm reading, so I'm trying to go through it slowly so that I'll have read the books first. I think I've finished all that are based on actual books now, though, and subsequent episodes are original stories.

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.

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.
Title: Re: What are you binge-watching?
Post by: Mike D. aka jmiked on December 01, 2018, 06:33:19 pm

Agreed on both series. Iíve 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 havenít read either yet.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Oh wow, that is awesome. I loved the series Moonlight where he was the lead and it was cut short cause again, anything I like gets cancelled. (http://www.sherv.net/cm/emoticons/tennis/smashing-tennis-racket-smiley-emoticon.gif) (http://www.sherv.net/)
Course it was already cancelled by the time I got around it. So I knew it would be short. He made such a dreamy vampire.  ;D. Its the reason I started Hawaii five 0 in the first place. He's great in it too, totally different, but I got to love the whole cast. The banter and all that.

How in the heck he sounds american is something I am always in awe off when it comes to international actors. I remember watching Homeland and one of the the main lead was on some talk show, Damian something and its so weird to hear them in their own accent.
I am almost caught up with the show now though, was able to cancel CBS all access thankfully. Horrible service. Now I am recording as they are airing via youtubeTV.

Man, I so wish I knew if I should watch GOT or not. I don't like over the top gratuitous violence and rapey stuff, unless there is something to offset it. Like Outlander has some really bad stuff too, but its offset by other stuff like happy moments, some humor. It just seems its all doom and gloom and death all the time on GOT. Or is that not so? 

I never watched even one episode of it. There are enough seasons for a binge, but I just don't know if I should. I'd have to subscribe to HBO. I don't read fantasy at all, but I wonder if there is enough "history" tone and feel to it for me to like it. I mean I love reading urban fantasy, so i am not opposed to creatures.

Sigh, decisions decisions. I managed to be pretty spoiler free for all these years though. Other than I know there is some "red wedding" with many deaths and one character that gets killed early on and flying dragon babies. That is is  :P

I've binged watched pretty much every David Lynch movie in the last week. Very weird and interesting stuff. Mulholland Drive is now one of my favorite movies. I'm watching The Lost Room sci-fi mini-series. It's pretty good so far, and it's short so not too much to lose if the ending is not so great. Also watching Angel Beats anime. Getting excited for Stranger Things season 3 on 4th of July.

Man, I so wish I knew if I should watch GOT or not....

For me, I only watched the first 2 episodes, and basically had the same reaction as I had to the first book, which I gave up on after 2-300 pages (maybe a quarter of the way through?). That reaction was that I didn't really care what happened to any of the characters -- and there were many "main" characters, so you'd think I might have cared about a few of them. :)

I'm sure I'll be finishing up "Good Omens" this weekend, after watching at least the first half of the episodes last weekend. It's been decent, though I'm not sure how easy it would be to follow along for those who have not read the book? (Again, a lot of characters following separate if related paths.)

For my money, TITANS (https://www.netflix.com/watch/80218201?trackId=200257859) is the best series that Netflix has ever screened, a brilliant re-invention of the Superhero genre with an utterly stunning finale. I've already watched it twice through end-to-end and am going to re-watch it a third time soon.

Binge watching Outlander right now. I just have a hard time finding anything that interests me when it comes to new shows. I think I found some decent stuff on netflix I might want to watch, but some of it will have to be watched with subtitles and my eyes aren't always up for that. As someone that doesn't like most horror, superhero stuff or stuff based on comics, or woo woo stuff that is too artsy fartsy, its just difficult to find stuff I can sink my teeth into.

Yay. I found something on Amazon Prime and I have no idea how I never knew about this series. "Silent Witness". They have all seasons on Prime. I think its all. Where has this been, I need more of that. So so good. I plowed through and now on season 6. They are much shorter than american shows so I'll get through it quick. This is the stuff I like. Just like I liked the Lynley series, while I am also reading the books on that one.

There is a new series on Amazon Prime called "Modern Love," based on the New York Times columns. I had not been reading these, but I subscribe to the podcasts (and have never listened to them!). I've watched 4 of the 8 half-hour shows and like it more than enough to continue to watch. Each story stands on its own. Anne Hathaway is in one episode. Tina Fey is in another. I thought the first episode about a woman who confides in her doorman was the weakest.

There's also at least another two seasons after that (so far - is it still going?) so this could take me a while.  :o

I am not liking the plot as much now but love seeing Jane and all the others. The kids' plots are filler in my opinion.

Also watched a 6-part documentary on Netflix about the royal family.

We started watching Tiger King last night. My first reaction was the same as yours. I was appalled at what I was seeing. When I found out that Joe is now in jail, I continued to watch, hoping justice has been done. We have now seen 3 episodes. I cannot bear to watch more than one in a day. It is so sad to see how low people can go in desperation. I find it hard to believe it is the #1 watched show on Netflix right now.

Our favorite bingeing has been the Netflix food shows. Ugly Delicious, Breakfast Lunch Dinner, Restaurants on the Edge, Chef's Table. There are some movies lined up in our cue that I want to see soon.

I won't spoil it for anyone, and I'm still not quite sure what to make of it... an interesting film to say the least, but I found almost all the characters to be totally unlikable.  So, for that reason alone, I have to give it a 7.5 out of 10.

Also watching the latest Grantchester series on PBS and Beecham House. Not too fond of Beecham House, but it is just good enough to keep watching weekly.

Yes, Perry Mason must be a prequel. I have watched the first in the Lucy Worsley series about Elizabeth I. I have the next one on DVR. I alerted my brother Stan to watch Lucy W. and he said he had the Queen Anne one set up to record on Sunday. He read the Wolf Hall series of books by Hilary Mantel this year and then saw the PBS series for the first time recently.

I watched two episodes of Queer Eye Tuesday evening. I like this season being set in Philadelphia.

And once that is done, I want to watch Alias. I have heard about that show for a long time, but never watched it. Not even one episode so that might be a good one to get into.

I finished Enterprise and sad how it ended. I just pretend the last to 2nd episode was the last. It actually turned out to be my favorite of the star trek franchise for me. 2nd favorite is Deep Space nine, although haven't watched all yet. My least favorite is Next generation, I just don't like that one for some reason. Can't get into Picard and the other characters. I think I need to watch Deep space nine and Voyager all the way through. Those I like. Skipping the Next Gen.

OMG, the ending of Enterprise was just SO WRONG!  Actually, most of the endings of the Star Trek Spin-offs leave much to be desired.  Let me know when you're watching Voyager, so I can voice my main complaints about that show. 

I went on an Alexandre Dumas movie binge this weekend.  Richard Chamberlain "Count of Monte Cristo" and "Man in the Iron Mask" followed by Leonardo DiCaprio's "Man in the Iron Mask" then the Keifer Sutherland/Oliver Platt/Charlie Sheen "Three Muskeeteers".  Then for a bit of a change, went to "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves".  Am thinking "Ladyhawke" or "Princess Bride" next.

Yeah, that ending was so out of place and so mean. Like the show runners just wanted to shat all over it and the characters. Didn't make sense and peeved me off. I would have liked a couple of more seasons of this show. I think I like my sci fi closer to first contact, which that one was. I am not too fond when its more like fantasy and far removed from earth and humans. If that makes sense.

I'll let you know about Voyager. Which one is first chronological, Voyager or Deep Space. I guess I'll google that.

DS9 is technically chronologically first.  I think that Voyager starts around the 3rd Season of DS9 (Voyager [the ship] actually leaves from DS9).  if you don't like fantasy, i am surprised you like DS9, as i feel it is the most fantasy leaning of all the series.

As to the Enterprise ending, i think they got cancelled by surprise, so were not able to go on as they expected and got stuck with the lousy ending.

I have only watched a few episodes of DS9. I'll start from beginning and see if I like it. THere was something about the tone of the show that appealed to me. Which is exactly what I don't like about the Next Gen. The tone on that one does not appeal.

True, I prefer the ones that are more human connected. Its the same when I read. But since there are only a selected type TV shows out there that I even wanna watch, I'll stretch out a bit more. I am running out of stuff to watch otherwise.

So now I started The Originals, spinoff of the VD and now that is more like it. A vampire show for adults. Great acting, great setting in New Orleans and great atmosphere. I have 5 seasons I think to watch. Halfway through the first.

 ;D I started watching the Originals too! I've also been watching Wynonna Earp. It's a supernatural drama with a tough female main character, great so far.

Yellowstone.  Took several episodes to sort out the characters, relationships and some of their backstories but itís really interesting now.  Somewhat reminds me of the old show Dallas - powerful rich family with lots of secrets and back stabbing.

I started watching The Originals, I like it for now. I find it more interesting than Vampires Diaries, agree? By the way, here is a great website for all movie fans https://streamingsites.com (https://streamingsites.com). There are many lists of various streaming sites, I think it's a real find.
