see if you can get a free 7 day trial for CBS access on the CBS website.spotsmom said:I refuse to pay to see Picard (even though I would love to). I think Patrick Stewart could make me safe in any situation.
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.mlewis78 said:My brother texted me and his kids last night to recommend Tiger King on Netflix. I watched about half of the first episode but didn't think it was good enough to keep up with. Anyone else watch this?
The Perry Mason looks to me like a prequel/origin story, is it something like that?mlewis78 said:I've been watching the new Perry Mason series on Netflix (Matthew Rhys) that is set in 1931-32 in Los Angeles. I barely remember the Perry Mason series from the '50s but we did watch it back then and this is nothing like it. I do like this one, although it shows some gruesome things.
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.telracs said:The Perry Mason looks to me like a prequel/origin story, is it something like that?
Oh, and there is a new Lucy Worsley series on PBS, called Royal Fibs. First episode was Queen Elizabeth 1, second was Queen Anne (didn't know much about her), and the third one will be Marie Antionette.
I've been binging Star Trek. Alternating between Next Generation and DS9, with some Enterprise thrown in.
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.Atunah said:I am rewatching re-binging? Vampire Diaries. Guilty pleasure. Vamp teenage angst and drama is just what I need right now .
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.
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.telracs said:OMG, the ending of Enterprise was just SO WRONG!

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.
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.Atunah said:Yeah, that ending was so out of place and so mean.

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