So what are you watching?

Postby KathyK » Sun Jan 06, 2019 8:40 pm

I just finished series 4 of "Shetland." I enjoyed the first three, but this one was far and away the best yet. The actor who played Thomas Malone was unbelievably good. I had to keep reminding myself it was an actor!

Now I've started the final season of "The Americans," and have season one of "Sneaky Pete" queued up next.

We were completely hooked on The Americans last year and watched all of the seasons way too quickly.

Lately, we've been watching Frozen Planet and Planet Earth 2.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime, and Insecure.

I'm really looking forward to Better Things finally re-starting. It will be interesting to see where it goes without Louis C.K., but Pam Adler is great, and I think this will really allow her to come into her own.

We really enjoyed Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff.

We binge-watched Wild, Wild Country, the docu-series about the Rajneesh in Oregon when it was first released on NetFlix. We moved to The Dalles when I was in high school, about 6 years after the whole thing ended, so we always heard about it from locals. My friend's dad was a county sheriff who'd helped to clear out and clean up the compound when they left.

We just binged Billions. Like Suits, on speed. It's amazing. I'm hanging out for S4 which comes out in March I think.
I need to get back to Suits to get through S7.

I don't watch a lot of tv/Netflix/whatever.

I've been watching Outlander and making some of the knitted garments, and Breaking Bad which my DS had recorded for me ages ago.

Just wrapped up Marvelous Mrs. Maisel a week or so ago.
Started the Netflix version of "A Series of Unfortunate events" this week and have enjoyed that so far.
I've been watching Bates Motel here and there, mostly because I never have. Since I'm marrying someone with the last name Bates I feel like its some sort of rite of passage I'm missing :lol:
We watched Bird Box last night. Wasn't sure what to expect but we both loved it. I'm dying for more answers about what happens next for them.

Almost anything on PBS. Especially the new dramas starting their new seasons Sunday night.

Straightforward - Thanks for the heads-up - I don't look at my PBS listings - I'll be sure to DVR this show

Phoenix - I didn't realize there would be more episodes of Bird Box. I liked it but I'm not much of a sci-fi watcher. The ending was pretty cool and wasn't what I expected.

Looking forward to the third season of Victoria starting on PBS Sunday. Otherwise, been watching a lot on The Science Channel. I find "Mysteries of the Abandoned" fascinating. (Strange and often huge structures that are rotting in place, obsolete, etc.) Sadly funny was a tunnel bored through the San Gabriel mountains in the '50s so people could "evacuate Los Angeles" in the event of a nuclear attack. Uh....yeah...like that would work even then!!! Talk about massive traffic jams!!

I just spent a really enjoyable evening watching 2 Dope Queens (HBO). If you like smart, inclusive contemporary comedy, check it out!

I have to wait for things to be released on DVD, and I will put that on my list.

I watch predominantly PBS and BBC shows and series via Amazon Prime. I typically watch the mystery or crime series but am a bit eclectic in shows. So recently I stumbled upon the sci-fi comedy series about a vampire, werewolf and a ghost living together. Some very creative writing and funny script which surprised me that I got sucked into watching it LOL! Actor Aiden Turner from the Poldark series plays the vampire. I'm sure this series helped get him selected for Poldark. 8-)

Show called 'Being Human'

I'm a big sci fi fan, so started watching Project Blue Book and The Passage. While I loved The Passage audio tapes, the TV version has jumped ship and changed things way too much for me to be loving it; not to mention they are moving at light speed and missing telling the story well. I'll keep watching but I'm not loving it so far. Project Blue Book, started slow but is getting a bit better, it too kind of jumped in at the start without a good lead in.

Was a big Walking Dead fan since the beginning but I'm done with it this season start up, it's gotten so repetitive I can't stand it, plus they've killed off so many of the original cast and the better ones that are new. Still watching Fear the Dead, it's actually gotten better since they killed off the original cast.

Michael and I enjoy Mysteries of the Abandoned too. It's freaky!

I am now watching "The Good Doctor." It's not *great drama* but it's engaging and enjoyable. Freddie Highmore is pretty fabulous as a young surgical resident who has autism and savant syndrome.
