The latest episode of The X-Files about Artificial Intelligence was a riot, especially the first ten minutes which had almost no dialogue because Mulder and Scully were on their smartphones.
I like the X-Files, and I'm a techy guy, but I was actually a little bored through that AI episode.  More dialogue would have helped.

I also watched Stranger Things and am watching Gotham.  That's about all I have time to squeeze in so that I can watch news and a movie here and there.

The only current series I'm watching at all is the X-Files.  It was a little rough when it restarted, but it feels like it's mostly back in the groove.  This very latest one was meh to me, not a topic I really can get into, but the AI one I absolutely loved.  The limited dialog was a love it or hate it move for sure.  I happened to love it!  :-)

Travelers on Netflix.  I was hesitant because it looked slightly cheesy based on the promo materials and images on Netflix.  But it's not cheesy at all - if you liked 12 Monkeys (movie and/or TV series), you'll like Travelers, too.

Roseanne

Sometimes it's nice to just sit and watch a show, no thinking required, and with this show, laughing almost guaranteed.

We used to watch it, the kids were little, but didn't watch it religiously. This new one, glad we tuned in.

Outlander - Great series.  (Warning - sexually explicit scenes.)
To put it mildly.  Holy shit.  Not for the faint of heart.

Solid show though.

So, I've watched the first eight or nine episodes of Outlander with my wife because the premise sounded interesting.  It's not a bad show.  What's frustrating about it is that I can tell there's a great story in there, half drowned in cheap romance novel cliches (bodice ripping, attempted rapes in more than half of the episodes to drive plot, the evil other woman, love at first sight .  I'm A-OK with gratuitous (and even moderately uncomfortable) sex scenes that drive a plot . . . but there's a lot of fanservice in this one.  Still less non-plot related guts n' tits than the last Starz show I watched (Spartacus) though.  :P

I hardly watch anything anymore, but most recently watched Altered Carbon. Loved the world building, as sci fi is one of my favorite genres. The premise with possible eternal life was intriguing to explore. A couple weeks later, still slightly shocked by the nudity. It was a lot. Not offended at all, but damn. (I'm not accustomed to watching HBO either, but believe this was way more even.)

Iíve been rewatching GLEE on Netflix.  Iíve forgotten a ton of stuff since I watched it the first time. 

On Acorn I highly recommend the series Vera starring Brenda Blethyn.  Vera is a great character.  I also recommend the show Hamish MacBeth starring Robert Carlyle and filmed in the 90s.  Itís set in a small Scottish western town and itís quite lovely.

The first season relies very heavily on rape/attempted rape as a driver of the drama.  My husband was totally into the show for half of the first season, and then had to bail for that reason.  IIRC, later books (I read 4 of the umpty many in the series) don't rely nearly as much on it.

However, I appreciate a show that actually uses sex, and the subtle nuances and complex emotions related to it as part of a relationship, in such a mature way.  Most times in media, it seems like sex is just sort of there for no particular reason.

I loved watching GLEE.

Right now I'm watching "Planet Earth: 2"  - fascinating nature drama!  Makes me want to consume as little as possible and lower my carbon footprint with every action I take.

In the late 70's I started watching "Sewing With Nancy" on PBS. I did not watch it religiously but always knew she'd be there when I wanted to.  Then we got this computer and Nancy was also online. She started with very little, gave an honestway of seing things, and eventually hired people to run her business, Nancy's Notions.

A few months ago Nancy died, I'd guess she was in her 60's, but I can sill go online to view any episode I want, or to shop.

I was in my late teens when she started, I'm 59 now. That's a long time for her to be in business. I always liked buying from her, and partly because she was a great example of a US business, well liked, knowing her stuff, and finding a way to give her expertise in a free way, because that's how she ended up selling.

I highly recommend the remake of "One Day at a Time" that is airing on Netflix. In the new version, the family is Cuban and lives in Los Angeles. The cast is all excellent and the grandmother is played by the great Rita Moreno!

"Fresh Off the Boat," "Black-ish" and "Speechless" are all good comedies about families of various kinds.

Jessica Jones!  Unlike a lot of action stuff, this one has good writing.  We are re-watching season one before we binge-watch season two, so no spoilers please.

I seem to be on a western type of roll lately.....started with Godless, pretty effed up but loved it, wife not so much ;-). Next up came Hell on Wheels, really effed up and I loved it, wife REALLY REALLY didn't like that one at all!! (notice a trend here??) Now watching Longwire, not nearly as effed up, and wife seems to think this is step in the right direction :-)

Over the holiday weekend we discovered the Netflix series "Nailed It" in which beginner bakers are asked to complete fairly advanced baking projects and the best one wins a monetary prize. It is a very good-spirited show (they clearly cast for people with a good sense of humor about how ridiculous it is) and the whole family enjoyed it. The kids particularly enjoyed it not just because the end results are funny, but because even at their level of knowledge they could see where people were going wrong (not putting frosting between layers of a cake, for instance).

The Tick on Amazon Prime Video.

It's a low-budget series, parodying/spoofying the Marvel/DC characters, normal urban settings, flaws in hero characters. Lots of witty word play.

Looking forward to Season 2.

A friend and I watched NAILED IT! on Sunday also and we thought it was a hoot!  I felt like when the judges started giggling, we had to giggle too.  The episode with the faces was my fave.

Not a western but since you loved Hell on Wheels you might check out Turn. Hopefully your wife will like it!

Another rec for Planet Earth 2!  I resisted for a while because I thought it would just be so redundant of the first series.  But the videography here is amazing, you guys!  A lot of stuff I could see how they got the footage with drones, maybe, but there are some scenes, like stalking prey right along next to a snow leopard, literally at her paws, that I just cannot imagine how they got the footage for.  And I could probably find out, but I don't even care, it is just so cool and fun!  And I'm not very good at appreciating things like videography or lighting or sound design, so if it was noticeable to me how impressive it was, that means it is *really* remarkable.

I have been watching the Netflix remake of Lost in Space. The reviews were rather lukewarm, but I liked it! I definitely preferred the first few episodes where the Robinsons were fighting for survival on a hostile planet, rather than the middle which is more focused on interpersonal conflict. The casting was very well-done (including the kids, which can be difficult) and I like the new version of the Robot a lot. I would say it's still a family show, but not for younger kids. There's no sex or nudity or questionable language, but they make it very clear that everyone is in a lot of danger, including from other characters, and people do die (not in a gory fashion, but on camera) at various times during the series. The new version of Dr. Smith in particular has zero regard for human life if it gets in the way of their own survival. I also don't know that younger kids would be very interested in the flashbacks that explain the family's current relationships.

Not sure if anyone mentioned Rita on Netflix but that show is awesome.

Bosch is pretty good (Amazon Prime)

Better Call Saul
Detectorists
Stranger Things


But Rita is one I had to really hold back from binge watching.

Along the lines of European shows, another Danish show I like is Dicte (also on Netflix) & I just finished watching Babylon Berlin which is terrific.

Husband and I just finished Babylon Berlin and agree that itís one of the best things weíve watched lately.

Weíve also enjoyed Jessica Jones and Altered Carbon, and are catching up on The Fall.

Iím also very excited for the next season of Jane the Virgin. We donít have cable so Iíll get to binge-watch and knit as soon as Netflix uploads it.

Amazon Prime also has all of Frasier and the original Roseanne, which have been entertaining during this awful winter.

For something light, we like New Girl, which is on Netflix.  The latest season just dropped, but haven't seen it yet.  All of the cast is great, but the guy that plays Schmidt is a comic genius.

We are watching Westworld on dvd along with Game of
Thrones.

Westworld,is great, but it has the JJ Abrams stamp. He had them running around endlessly through the forest in Lost.

 He has them running and riding around endlessly shooting each other in Westworld. 6 episodes in now and I tune out the loooooong shooting scenes.

Here's my guess:

"Ow and I tune put the loooooong shooting scenes."

Is actually "Oh and I tune out the looooooong shooting scenes."

On Netflix:

Travelers - Humans from the future travel back into our time by sending their consciousness into the body of a dying human. They're trying to change history to prevent future disasters. Lots of human interaction and interpersonal relationship stuff.

Glitch - Set in Australia. Dead people come back to life. They try to keep what happened a secret while attempting to figure out how this happened. Lots of human interaction and interpersonal relationship stuff.

Gypsy - A mental health therapist gets too involved with her patients. Lots of human interaction and interpersonal relationship stuff.

How To Get Away With Murder -A professor gets too involved with her law students. They all find themselves in an unexpected predicament. Lots of human interaction and interpersonal relationship stuff. 


On Amazon Prime:

Humans - In a parallel present it's become commonplace for households to have a very lifelike robot servant, but some of the robots start to develop feelings. Lots of human interaction and interpersonal relationship stuff. 

I'd love to hear about other great sci-fi and drama TV shows on Netflix, in particular. :)

There's a ton.  Luther, The Walking Dead, New Girl, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Into the Badlands, Love, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Sherlock, Miss Fischer's Murder Mysteries, Penny Dreadful, Spartacus, House of Cards, Mad Men, Sense 8, The 100, Copper, Hell on Wheels, Longmire, Psycho Pass (anime), Longmire, The Fall, The Tudors, Top of the Lake, Continuum, The Killing, iZombie, Z Nation, White Collar, Nikita, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher, Dexter: all were excellent or at least very enjoyable in their various ways.

Thanks! :) I've seen some of those.

Fortitude . . . it was slow building drama that morphed into a pretty cool sci-fi series over the first season.

Is Firefly still on Netflix? That's an oldie but a classic

I recently saw the 1st season of Iron Fist on Netflix.  It wasn't the best show, but I still enjoyed watching it. From reading some comments on it, I guess it's supposed to converge with the other Marvel character's shows in the future, so I guess I need to watch the others.

I liked Jessica Jones and Luke Cage more than Iron Fist and recommend both. Those three characters and Daredevil are all in the Defenders movie, which was also fun (and Iím not usually a superhero fan).

We just started watching Anthony Bourdainís Parts Unknown on Netflix. Itís really fascinating to learn about both the food cultures and sociopolitical environments of places like post-Qaddafi Libya.

We also watched Wild Wild Country, the Netflix documentary about the Rajneesh cult that set up a compound in Oregon in the early 1980s. Husband and I were kids when this was a big news story, so it was fascinating to see the news reports that our parents were switching off when we came in the room.

The first season of Jessica Jones is my favorite of all the various superhero television series. David Tennant plays the villain and he is legitimately terrifying. The second season was well-done but has a very different approach which not everybody loved (I still liked it.) The first season of Daredevil is a good traditional superhero series with a very solid villain character played by Vincent D'Onofrio. It has really impressive fight choreography--since the character wears a mask, they can use stunt doubles and made good use of them to go beyond what the actor could do. The first half of Luke Cage was excellent and really put the Harlem setting to good use. I did not care for the villain they introduced for the second half. I also didn't like the second season of Daredevil much but there is a character who plays a key role in the Defenders so if you want to watch that series you might want to see Daredevil S. 2 to get the whole story.
