What TV series are you watching right now?
« on: September 21, 2018, 03:32:17 AM »
Do you like the series? Hate it? Grudgingly respect it?

I'll start...





It's ambitious with a lot of great scenes. But the storytelling is a mess.

It's what you'd expect from the Wachowski siblings.

Sense8 is on Netflix.

The original Upstairs Downstairs. I love those old BBC costume dramas. After this one, I'll be watching Lillie (Lillie Langtry).

I'm still waiting for Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

We finished watching The Crossing a few days ago. Lots of similarities to Lost, but still a very enjoyable show.

Just found out this morning that it was canceled and there will be no Season 2. :angry:

The last TV show I watched was Taskmaster on the Dave channel (UK). I believe there's going to be/there is a US version.

The last couple of series I watched, on Netflix, were Toast of London and Whitchapel.

I've been rewatching Buffy for what must be the 500th time! On season 7 now. I've been watching Ozark too, really liking it. Love Jason Bateman in it, Arrested Development was probably one of my favourite comedies  :icon_mrgreen:

Midsomer Murders.

I've watched Midsomer Murders through a couple of times, but I thought this last season was a little unbelievable. Not bad to sustain a show for 20 seasons.

We're on season 12 I think, maybe 13. Netflix keeps track for us. We watch 2-3 episodes a week. It is definitely evolving as it goes along.

It's a great show, even after most of the major cast left. The new people are just as good except for the sidekick this last season.

Jack Ryan. It was aiiight. I haven't watched "regular" TV in maybe 3 years and I've never been more sane or gotten more work done.

Same here - now on episode 7 of Jack Ryan...  I initially thought the actor was the one in Chuck LOL.  Wrong guy.

Just watched the last episode of the new show Castaways, which I liked but will probably be cancelled.

About ready to watch the finale of season 1 of Altered Carbon again.

It's a binge-worthy series. All six seasons are (currently) on Amazon Prime. Don't blame me if you get hooked and miss your next publishing deadline.

Upstart Crow (and a new series here featuring someone walking the routes of former railway lines - I'm afraid it's almost as quintessentially British as the one where a group of madmen built a model railway line through the Great Glen).

I think I've finished the first two series of Upstart Crow. Going to crack on with series 3, this weekend. Probably Ben Elton's best TV show since Bl'adder.

Honest answer: way too many!

The ones that stick in my mind right now: Elementary, Lucifer and Instinct.  Just finished Harrow, which I thought was quite good. I do like crime drama, although I'm getting more squeamish as I get older, it seems.

Gotta add a new one. I totally poo-poo'ed 911 last year because I was tired of so many police and fireman shows. But, they put the whole first season up for binging on demand, and I was bored last night. Now, I can't stop...c-a-n-'-t...stop.

Love Stargate SG-1 and Babylon 5, but they're not on Netflix.

Right now, Dark Matter Season 1 (again).

Atypical...2 seasons (Netflix). Really, really good writing.
Jack Reacher...first season (Amazon). Very cinematic, great directing.
The Good Place...2 seasons (Netflix). Light and funny, but smart; a little left of center on the goofy scale.
Star Trek: Discovery...first season (CBS). Also very cinematic, solid SF.

and

Cowboy BeBop...the only seasons (Hulu).



You're gonna carry that weight...

So good.

Thanks for the reminder about Father Brown. Mark Williams is absolutely perfect in the role. I got caught up in other things and stopped watching but it's time to go back.

Right now, Dark Matter Season 1 (again).



Dark Matter, a.k.a. Why I'm Never Watching Syfy Again.

Seriously.  I stopped watching Syfy after they cancelled Warehouse 13 and Stargate: Universe in favor of wrestling stuff and I'd don't remember anymore which was the last straw but Syfy was dead to me for several years until Dark Matter.  Then I got hooked.  And then they cancelled it.

I will not be fooled again, Syfy!  I'm also not watching your parent network, NBC.

Thank goodness for Comet, except the new time they are moving Stargate: SG-1 to means I won't get to watch it anymore.   :angry:

If you have an opportunity to finish the series, I recommend it.

You won't be disappointed. ;)

Watching Mayans and hoping to love it like I did SOA. Also watching the newest season of American Horror Story. I haven't loved every season but I've watched them all since the start. It's part of my Halloween season traditions now. Thinking about trying Maniac on Netflix. Seeing so many mixed reviews. I'm curious.

I'm finishing AHS: Cult tonight. I haven't enjoyed it.

I'll withhold my reasons until you've watched the entire season. :)

I think I've given up on more shows lately than I can ever remember. Must have something to do with the extreme level of choice currently available.

Currently enjoying and waiting for new seasons of: Bosch (Amazon), Mindhunter (Netflix), Big Little Lies (HBO), Black Mirror (Netflix)

Recently tried, and gave up on:

The Good Cop (Netflix)
Jack Ryan (Netflix)
Atypical (Netflix)
The Man in the High Castle (Amazon)
River (Netflix)
Luther (Netflix)
Breaking Bad (Netflix)
Westworld Season 2 (HBO)
Jessica Jones Season 2 (Netflix)
Hinterland (Netflix)
Broadchurch (Netflix)
Dark (Netflix)
Wallander (Netflix)
Gray's Anatomy (Netflix)


The first season of 'The Handmaid's Tale' was okay, don't think I'll be looking to see S2, however. Liked the first season of 'Stranger Things', but really disliked Season 2, don't know if I'll bother with S3.

The last couple of seasons of 'House of Cards' have been 'meh', but I'm interested in seeing what they do sans Spacey.

Haven't been enjoying 'Game of Thrones' since S4, but I'm caught up and waiting for S8 because at this point I'm pot-committed. Gave up on 'The Walking Dead' shortly after Negan came on the scene.

Might give another chance to: Altered Carbon (Netflix), The Americans (iTunes)(made it to S3 and liked it, but got too expensive to keep streaming - it's a hard show to keep up with in Canada outside of an over-priced cable package which is frustrating).

Don't know if there's plans to make any more, but I also quite enjoyed a Netflix series called 'Godless'. Haven't caught up with 'Sharp Objects' yet, but might give that a go. Really enjoyed streaming all of 'The Good Wife' as well. I wish they'd bring back 'Justified'.

Man...I watch a lot of TV.
