Just finished wating one Mississippi, very well done show. A comedy family drama but light Tig Nataro stars
I really really liked One Mississippi, too.

Last week I binged on The Kominsky Method, about two senior citizen show bix guys. Great writing, good portrayals by Michale Douglas and Alan Arkin. It is a ďcomedyĒ a cording to the producers but it is not broad commedy. I see it more as an ironic and light drama.

Watching season one of Patriot on Amazon Prime.  It's such an odd show.  The first several episodes were actually a bit off-putting, but now I'm hooked.  I think when I realized that the whole point was that everything went to hell and couldn't be salvaged took it from a "Fargo but with spies" feel to more of a tragic slow motion car crash with a few funny bits along the way.  Not done yet, so we'll see how it goes.

I really enjoyed Dead to Me on Netflix. Both Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are great in it and I loved the cliffhanger it ended on. Bit of an obvious set-up but still ended up uncertain until the very end if it really would happen. Hope they'll make a second season.

I totally agree. Patriot is one of my favorite shows. It's fantastic dark, absurdist humor.

Happy!  is a strange show, but has it's moments.  Definitely has a bit of Grant Morrison vibe going on.

Finished watching it and the 2nd season was even stronger than the first.  The flippant comedy of the 1st season is dialed down and the tragic, gallows type humor is dialed up.  Loved it.

I get that, it took me a year to get through the first season, but I kept coming back to it because, A. I had watched everything else on Netflix, and B. it got very high IMDB ratings (8.4 /10).  Typically anything above an 8 is usually a pretty good show.

Le Casa De Papel also has very high ratings on IMDB that leave me very confused. I could have sworn I watched a different show from everyone because I made it to the end thinking it gets better, and it instead is such a dumb show. I just don't understand why the rating don't reflect it. The show has some of the dumbest plot lines and characters I have ever come across.

OK, thank you for that warning.

I have always liked that lead actor guy Titus Welliver or whatever his name is. I think he is extremely handsome.

With Good Omens coming May 31 on Amazon Prime Video, I just finished watching Terry Pratchett's Hogswatch. Next up is The Colour of Magic, followed by Going Postal.

Never got into GoT despite watching half of Season 1. Heard on the radio that GRRM said that the book ending is different from the TV series ending. I think I'll go read the books.

I rarely find people in real life who have watched The Marvelous Mrs Maisel and Black Sails. Two very good shows! I ignored Mrs Maisel for a while and it was such a good pleasant surprise!

Mrs. Maisel, that show is whip smart.  It's also that rare show that (underneath all the wisecracks) has a benevolent world view.
 Love it.

This. Not very optimistic about it and quite frankly even if he leaves notes, the book cannot be written by someone else. I tend to notice when shows change writers and have at times had to google if the writing has changed because it becomes blatantly clear the characters and the plot are different.

Unrelated note, Not a show I like but Le Casa De Papel/ Money Heist is a very overrated yet dumb show that I raged at the end because many called it a master piece. There's nothing worse than a dumb show pretending it's smart. The idea is great but it has the dumbest characters I have seen in a very long time.

I watched a few episodes of Mrs. Maisel, and I Have positive ideas about it, itís just that itís relentlessly promoted and so I was a little sick of it just from the endless promotions. But that is a dumb criticism. It is a high-quality show and itís got a lot going on thatís interesting

My main  problem with it is that I do not like that era of fashion and so I wince at almost everything they all wear.

Americans is a great show.  I would highly recommend this especially to people who are interested in 1980's era spy craft.

The Americans was the last good drama I watched. i finished it last fall. I had started it some years ago, became bored with the kinda silly wigs/disguises used, then got back into it last summer after Critics kept saying it was the best thing on TV.

Iím so glad I watched it in its entirety.. The last few episodes of the last season are gripping. The final scenes of the last episode are some of the best ever made on TV.

 OK. I watched  the first season of Bosch. I didnít like it and Iíll say why below, but when you say start slow do you mean upcoming season gets better in character development or plotting? Did they get new writers?

Iím sorry to be such a wet blanket but I found this show to be predictable like network TV is predictable. I did not find the characters interesting, it Is a typical renegade cop doing good show. Note that Bosch only kills the bad guys in season one,  There is nothing especially interesting about Bosch Even though they try to give him a backstory óprostitute momóit aint all that.

When Season One opened in The Shield we knew right away that Vic Mackey was a bad guy with a gun who often did good things. He stole millions of dollars. He killed good people. The Shieldís characterization and plotting and everything about it was top notch.  I love The Shield and I donít watch cop shows, but that and The Wire transcended their genre.

So sorry, now I am back to searching for dramas I like. Iím finishing Ozark which I find decent.

Fair enough, but The Shield and The Wire are two of the greatest shows of all time so everything is going to come up short.  One thing about Bosch, it did seem to get better every season, as opposed something like SOA which gradually dropped away and then finally that disastrous last season.

You are right, SOA got stupider with each season and I will confess that I stopped watching after Opie died. But when I loved it, I LOVED it! Those greasy, dirty, old motercycle guys were the bomb.


I still pull up Jaxís final scene on Youtube and watch now and then.  The accompanying music may be sentimental, but I think it is a lovely pairing with that scene. It is original, Sutter and someone else wrote it for the final season.

Have you watched Fargo the tv series on Hulu?  For a SoA and Shield (and I assume Breaking Bad) fan, Fargo the series should be right up your alley.  Dark, but also perversely funny.  And I like how each season shifts the scope of the show.

Oh sure. Season 1 and 2 were really really good. Not so much with Season 3, but it was a good try at something different.

Dead to Me on Netflix with Christine Applegate. Very twisted, entertaining!
I am enjoying Dead to Me.

Have you watched Fargo the tv series on Hulu?  For a SoA and Shield (and I assume Breaking Bad) fan, Fargo the series should be right up your alley.  Dark, but also perversely funny.  And I like how each season shifts the scope of the show.

Oh sure. Season 1 and 2 were really really good. Not so much with Season 3, but it was a good try at something different.

Funny, season 3 was my favorite.  But then again I thought the Shield was good but not great and SoA was terrible.  Not sure if you like superhero shows, but Legion is excellent, also on Hulu I believe.  On the crime show front, I really loved the TV series Hannibal but I seem to be alone in that, so take it for what it's worth.  Season 1 of Hannibal was merely OK because it seemed they were trying to shoehorn it into the old "bad guy helps the police solve crime" trope.  But seasons 2 and 3 I loved because they cut all ties to that and just went bat shit insane.  Loved that.

We're two episodes into Broadchurch on Netflix. So far, it's compelling.

I can't get enough of the British stuff.  Endeavour, Shetland, Happy Valley, etc.  Digging into the lesser known stuff now - just watched a couple of seasons of The Unforgotten.

Broadchurch 1st series was decent. Along those lines I liked Happy Valley and that one with Jillian
Anderson.

Iím not a big fan of the typical police procedural or murder series.

I watched Animal Kingdom on Amz Prime, because I like the kid from Peaky Blinders whoís in it but then moved to watching Southland on Hulu because Shawn Hatosyís portrayal of Pope Cody on Animal Kingdom is so deep.  The quintessential tender psychopath who needs a hair cut!  Southland was new to me too, and also has some really good acting from Regina King and Hatosy again.

I liked the movie - Ben Mendelsohn from Bloodline plays Pope - but have not got around to watching the tv show.  I'm a little hesitant as often when British or Australian tv shows are re-produced in America they lose some of the grit that made them so good.

But 4 seasons in, it obviously has staying power, so I will add it to my list!

Really enjoying, "The Act" on Hulu. Munchausen syndrome by proxy.

watched 2 episodes of Good Omens today on Amazon Prime. I'm a Terry Pratchett fan.
Not disappointed. Not super thrilled.
But it's nice to watch a show that's based on a book I've read.
I don't like to deep-dive into comparing books vs their visual productions.
Just chuffed.
