Enjoying a great deal.


I've been binge-watching that for the past week. Four more episodes until I'm caught up.

Completed season three last night. Now on to season four before season five comes out.

Has a date been given for that yet? I seem to see Kevin Spacey doing all sorts of things so wonder if he can make the time?

It has consistently premiered at the end of February each year. I expect it'll be the same in 2017.
just got into Humans.

decent show UK based off a more sexualized swedish version

it started out very good but kind ended on a lame cat and mouse premise that deviated away from what made the show really intriguing to begin with.

season 2 is in the works now apparently


if you took blade runner and set it in a more utopian society, this is it.

Urgh! It's one thing to wait 4 months for the next season of network shows to start, and 7 months for football to start, but 8 more months until we see what happens next on House of Cards??! Buggers.....

Tigers aren't doing so well, are rarely on TV here, and can't be bothered watching anyone else!
If you're a fan you follow them. In 1991, when the Yankees were the worst team in baseball, I went to the games and rooted for them.

I follow the Tigers closely but they are rarely on TV here so that doesn't feed my hunger for sports on TV!

I've seen it. I think I would have liked the Swedish version better. Wink

Let me catch up on HoC first! Smile
My parents love House of Cards. I tried to get into it but something about Kevin Spacey has always bugged me. I have a hard time watching him.

I watched the first season of Mr. Robot over the last week while traveling. I thought it was pretty good. Rami Malek is great in it.

Thanks, beerman. I did think season 3 was the weakest.
Leonard Bernstein's Young People's Concert

(Didn't know where else to mention this set)

How amazing that these exist? Bernstein did these one hour lectures for children on CBS from 1958 - 1972. There are 40 altogether and they are simply amazing. You'll see Bernstein over most of his prime years. In the show, he;s not talking down to the children but elevating these materials for people young and old. It's not just classical music that's explored here, but music in general. There at least a dozen well chosen examples throughout each show that Bernstein's own script integrates into a perfect mix of lecture and music. It is just all so very interesting.

(And wait to you see the sight of hundreds of well-mannered, well-dressed youngsters--it will blow your mind.)

Netflix DVD
Begun watching Downton Abbey. While it has an excellent cast and production values it is a little too facile. I think this is best shown in the second episode where newcomers mother and son each have an issue they have to deal with and both of them are tied up neatly by the end of the episode--no Breaking Bad here. Still it's a lot of fun and I'm sure I'll wind up watching the whole thing.
I started watching the Shannara Chronicles which MTV tossed out.

Some parts are OK; some parts are pure teenage drama stuff. I now understand why anyone who wants to do a serious fantasy series usually gets British actors because of their accents.

Not sure if I will finish the first season or not.
Banshee - Final Season (Season 4). It was a very fun series to watch though a bit violent. It was a satisfying conclusion.
I've been watching reruns of The World at War available on Amazon Prime. 26 part series on WW2 narrated by Laurence Olivier from the 70s. The interviews with participants is quite interesting, although all too brief.
The Night Of

Great lead role for John Turturro - a part that was originally meant for James Gandolfini.

The glacial pacing might not be to everyone's taste, but I love that it feels like the story is unfolding in real time. Looking forward to watching last night's episode this evening which introduces a new character played by Michael Kenneth Williams, aka Omar from The Wire.
Just watched the trailer for "American Gods" which will be out on Starz next year. Really looking forward to it, looks like they've nailed the cast.

After two episodes this just feels like a typical police procedural with LOTS of padding.

Hence my caveat. One man's ceiling is another man's floor. Razz
We just made it through the first season of House of Cards. It's definitely entertaining.

I've also been watching season one of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I really don't think it's very good, but yet I keep watching it. Confused

We just started to watch it last night, and couldn't even make it through the first episode. I don't think I laughed once. I will probably go back and finish episode 1 and 2 to see if it gets any better, but I'm not hopeful.

Likewise, except I won't go back and finish episode 1.

It is funny in an over the top way BUT there is an underlying unpleasantness to it. It is not light hearted fun.
