I really enjoy "The Last Kingdom" on Netflix. Mainly it's about medieval England, the wars between the Saxons and the Danes, and specifically the role of Uthred of Beadenburgh, I know I spelled it wrong.

I am currently in my annual "Month of HBO" which I sign up for every year when Game of Thrones is running, and then use as an opportunity to catch up on all the other HBO programs of the past year. Highly recommend "Big Little Lies." The overall plot is that you find out in the first episode that a questionable death took place in an affluent California community, and then over the rest of the series (7 episodes) you find out what happened. The real attraction is the acting, as the female-centered cast is really terrific. The plot centers on five women who all have kids in the same first-grade class. Three of the five actresses are Oscar-winners or nominees and the other two are no slouches. HBO programs are available on Amazon Prime after a few years so it should turn up on that service eventually...

Fleabag.  Great little British series that packs a punch (and is also very funny).  6 episodes, 35 minutes each.  On Amazon Prime.

I've been binge-watching Death in Paradise, as part of my murder-mystery summer fetish. I thought I wouldn't like it because of the Caribbean setting--but that actually makes it all the more fun. (Yeah, no 1930's English backdrops here.) The main characters change like revolving doors through the seasons, but believe it or not, they're all good, and it works out fine. Fun and flippy, rather formulaic...like reading a beach book, only it's TV--a joint venture between British and French television, set on the fictional island of "Saint Marie"--better known as Guadaloupe. Recommended.

For my science fiction fix, I'm continuing to watch the third seasons of two action-adventure space operas-- Killjoys and Dark Matter. Not sure exactly where either of them are going--but entertaining enough to keep watching. Both get very weird and strange. They don't measure up to The Expanse in terms of character or plot--they are more like TV versions of comic books...just for fun. Recommended, if you don't take them too seriously.

Catastrophe - Amazon - first few seasons are great.  Great chemistry between the leads.  Pretty damn funny.

Leverage. Its a show about ex-criminals who were masters in their field (hacking, stealing, impersonating, e.t.c) being legitimate, and using their skills to incriminate other criminals. Very exciting, surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet.

I do like this show - but  the goofy blonde guy (series 3-6 I think) was my favourite. I haven't seen any of the latest guy but did enjoy his work as an idiot on Father Ted.

I zipped through the latest season that is available on dvd of VEEP.  It is funny as hell, and smutty. It is probably the worst tv show  for lanugage, the sexual quips come a mile a minute.  Love it.

Thank you! I watched season 1, but I forget to keep an eye for season 2. It is pretty good for horror TV series.

Just finished watching the first 2 seasons of "Better Call Saul".

Really great writing and acting. I was surprised at how good this series is, with "Breaking Bad" being such a high bar to approach.

I highly reccomend The Rake, an Australian television series about a down and out lawyer. I like  it even better than Better Call Saul. It is more formulaic, at least the first season is, because the lawyer takes cases that can't be won and he usually always wins, , and his clients are nearly always guilty.  He takes drugs and chases women and is a reprobate. The supporting actors are decent.

It is on Netflix, or Amazon, or one of those services.

I'm still on my mystery kick. I finished watching the Dr. Blake Mysteries on Netflix--a little different, being set in Australia, but the characters are engaging. Not too light, not too dark--meaty stories and interesting character arcs. 0n a friend's recommendation, I went back to Hinterland for another try. (Season 1, Ep. 1 just seemed too dark and depressing.) For some reason Hinterland--and the incredibly beautiful Welsh scenery and interesting Welsh accents--clicked for me with Season 1, Ep. 2. So I'm going to binge. My neighbor told me to pay attention, because apparently there are over-reaching story arcs, with one episode tied to another, and all going back to the first episode. So we shall see.

Our HBO free month is about up.  We utilized a free month of Hulu to watch The Handmaids Tale (recommended).

After this HBO month, I'll probably head back to Netflix to finish up Season 3 of Bloodline and then we'll start Ozark.

My/our upcoming list (some will be me only haha):
-most recent season of House of Cards
-The Keepers
-Ozark
-HBO series next time we sign up for a month: Deadwood, True Detective, The Wire (plus some others that we'll never get to lol)
-Stranger Things next month!
-Trying to get SO into Better Call Saul

Think we have enough to watch the next few months.  Wish HBO wasn't $15/month, but as is we rotate the free month around GoT.

Lower your expectations. It's definitely a cultural phenomenon, but the quality does not match The Wire or Breaking Bad or Mad Men, IMO. You might end up thinking "really, this is it?" if you go in thinking you're about to watch one of the best shows of all time.

I just finished up "Thirteen Reasons Why." Quite liked the show, but didn't particularly like the ending (which seemed like a pointless set-up for a second season). Did not get the impression that it glamorized suicide, but can see how it can be dangerous for currently suicidal people.

Finished binge-watching the three seasons of Hinterland. OMG, my neighbor was right--it is excellent, and will really draw you in. It is dark though--Wales noir, I guess you could call it. There are gripping stand-alone stories that weave in among the over-reaching arc that does stem from the story in season 1 episode 1. So you have to pay attention. The scenery just gets more beautiful and dramatic with every episode. I have been through Wales, but never stayed to tour around. Well, that's going to change. Ceredigion, here I come!

I second "Better Call Saul", "Stranger Things" and "Broadchurch". Impecabbly written, superb acting. I found " Orange is the New Black", "Call the Midwife" and "Longmire" to be entertaining but I could see both of them getting annoying to someone else. I haven't seen anyone recommend those: "Foyle's War" -highly recommend if you like British crime shows. Set in WW2 and after. Also "Happy Valley". That's darker, but also just beautiful. If you liked "River", go for that one!

Wentworth,

it is a Australian Prision show. Similar to OITNB, but way darker, and in my opinion realistic.  I really liked it.

I have recently been watching Banshee, which is on Amazon Prime these days. The premise is that an ex-con comes looking for his former flame, who has assumed a new identity, in a small town in Pennsylvania. He has the opportunity to take on the identity of the new sheriff who had just arrived in town as a way to stay around while he tries to rekindle their relationship. Warning--it is very violent, and this tiny Pennsylvania town has more problems with motorcycle gangs, corrupt mobsters, neo-Nazis, etc than most mid-size cities...but the lead is very watchable. (You do have to suspend your disbelief that nobody is noticing the total lack of due process and normal police procedure in a town 90 minutes outside Philadelphia...)

I also started rewatching Burn Notice, which is much more light and fun. Good laundry-folding TV.

"Trapped" on Amazon Prime is a Nordic noir mystery series set in Iceland. The language is Icelandic with some Danish and English...it is subtitled, but don't let that put you off. Fully-realized characters, a complex mystery, an incredibly beautiful setting--well-worth watching.

Sense 8 is awesome!!  They did a very good job of that show.  To bad they canceled it due to political pressure after two seasons.

The 4400 is well done as well.  That was canceled due to the writers strike in 2008 or so.

Netflix cancelled it because it was tremendously expensive to produce.   Same as Marco Polo which was also cancelled.

I am not sure where it was done.  I came across it on Netflix and loved it.

Dark Matter was cancelled, unfortunately with ninety-eleven cliffhanging plot threads. I know the fans are trying to get it back on in some form. (Like when Firefly was cancelled...and Stargate Universe...and Farscape.) I can't fathom why Dark Matter was cancelled and Killjoys is apparently going to run for two more seasons. They were about the same in terms of quality--wild, cartoonish space action-adventure--fun to watch. I'm starting to hate the SyFy channel and their viewer-unfriendly decisions.

ARG really?  I am most of the way through season 1 and love it.  Why do they cancel the good ones?

After watching Episode 1 of Season 7 of the Walking Dead, I could almost cry, it seems so hopeless.

There has only been two episodes so far, but I'm really enjoying The Deuce on HBO. Love all of David Simon's work and great to see some familiar faces from his other series. Maggie Gyllenhaal is incredible so far and James Franco playing two characters isn't half as bad as I thought it was going to be. Looking forward to the rest of the season.
