I figured if I didn’t start watching The Walking Dead now, I never will. It’s 10 seasons though so it will take a while. I finished Season 2 today. I know everyone says it will start to suck soon but we’ll see. 

To compliment that. I’ve also started Schitt’s Creek since it’s a quick 20-minute show. I heard good things and I love Eugene Levy. It’s OK but I can’t say it was a big loss to miss it the first time. 

I really want to start watching The Americans soon, and check out Penny Dreadful. Depending on how long this lasts, that should be more than enough to get me through quarantine.

Penny Dreadful was excellent. New Penny Dreadful starts at the end of the month though not related to the original in terms of characters and time frame, as I understand it.

Not binge watching but downloaded two PC games from Steam. OOTP 21 (Out Of The Park baseball) and Train Sim World 2020 which has a painstakingly accurate Long Island Railroad run. I'm not much of a gamer. The baseball one seems like you need a doctorate to figure it out. They leave out absolutely nothing when it comes to running a club. They also have virtually every player and team going back to the 1870's. I really don't know if I'll live long enough to master it. It seems like it would take 30 years to really get it going.

I am also playing Out of the Park Baseball. I bought the 2019 edition on Christmas for like $5. Ironically I found out about the deal from ROH commentator Ian Riccobani, who is a huge baseball fan.  I’m in my second season and yeah it’s crazy, much too detailed to do everything unless you literally want to quit your job and pretend you’re running a franchise for real, putting in 10 hour days.

Watched Tiger King
Watching Ozark season 3, up to episode 3 now.

For a change of pace, I kinda like The Kindness Diaries, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Schitt's Creek is great, but you have to give it some time.

A lot of the early HBO stuff is available on regular Amazon Prime, so I've been watching stuff that I missed. Watching the John Adams mini series at the moment.

The Americans got a little too outrageous, too early, for my tastes. It had a great hook and I remember enjoying the first 5 or 6 episodes.

I liked The Walking Dead, through all its ups and downs until... I don't know the exact season, but midway through the Negan nonsense.

Started Ozark, finally, and liked it.

Also started watching "Frontier" with Jason Momoa and the 17th century Hudson's Bay Company. I'm a little "over" the whole historical drama thing, though. For instance, I loved "Vikings" up until they killed off Ragnar and focused on his annoying sons (errr....sorry 'bout that. Spoiler).

SoA was a guilty pleasure of mine, a good show but very much like a soap opera with violence.  Some of the acting was fantastic (Katey Segal) and some was atrocious (like the main character).  The quality of the writing varied too.  And that season where they all went to Ireland was painful.  As long as you were OK with the fact that you were basically watching "Days of Our Lives" with bikers it was fine, but too many people kid themselves into thinking it was more than that.  "The Shield" was another FX show from around the same time that absolutely blows SoA away in every way.

I enjoy that show, but I always feel like he stops one step short, or that there should be a big reveal, but then it's just a medium reveal.

M*A*S*H, the first four seasons. Most people like the scenes with Hawkeye and Trapper in the Swamp, but I think the funniest scenes are with Henry Blake and Radar in Henry's office. I've been a M*A*S*H fan since I was a kid but I hadn't watched it for several years. It's a hilarious show in those early seasons.

The only one I've binged that I hadn't seen already was Tiger King. Last week I pulled out my WKRP dvd set and went through that show again, it holds up well even 40 years later..and right now I'm 4 seasons into my Reno 911 DVD set again, another show that was so good..

Safe on Netflix. I'd already watched Harlan Corbin's The Five, which was excellent, and decided I"d try this. Well written so far, though it takes a while to adjust to Michael C Hall having a British Accent.

Instead of “Tiger King”, everyone needs to watch “How to Fix a Drug Scandal” on Netflix. It’s only 4 episodes, less than an hour each. I was following this in real time before anyone heard about it. Our criminal justice system is beyond fucked, and the prosecutors belong in cages instead of drug addicts.

Has anyone watched a Netflix show called Too Hot To Handle ?  It supposedly is a reality show that features couples on an island & up for grabs is $100,000.No sex, kissing, masturbating is permitted. 
One of the all-sports radio stations in Toronto were discussing the show today. Apparently it is the worst reality show ever.

I had watched the first two seasons of Ozark but my fiancé hadn’t so we started over last week. Since all 5 kids were at our ex’s all weekend we’re already into season 3. Kinda fun rewatching and seeing things unfold and noticing things I didn’t the first time through.

All the schlock B Movies that are on Amazon Prime. Literally hundreds. From the 30's to the 60's. Saw a lot of them but there are some I have never heard of.

Some examples are She (Who Must Be Obeyed) from the 30's. Bride of the Gorilla (50's with Raymond Burr as the ape)
Skidoo (60's with Groucho Marx as God and Jackie Gleason as an LSD freak)
Don't Worry We'll Think of a Title (60's with Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie playing restaurant owners and Moe Howard alone without the Stooges as their lawyer.

Finished 3rd season of Ozark. That season was better than the other two. The first two were good, but they some of their subplots were okay.

The last season of Bosch came out and I'll start on it today.


Okay, saw the first season of Americans four years ago, but I never got around to seeing the second. Is that something worth binging?

About to finish Season 3 and it definitely gets better as you go along.  I'm not sure if the writing changed or my perceptions of the characters changed, but after you realize the kids aren't idiots and are just dryly sarcastic in the bet possible way it helps a lot.

I watched and enjoyed Oz but after the first season you pretty much have to realize this is nowhere near close to reality..in fact, the Walking Dead is more realistic than Oz became..

I remember it having a buzz online, but most people I knew never actually watched it. I binged the whole thing a few years after it ended. It wasn’t until The Sopranos that I remember everyone watching and basically subscribing to HBO just for that. Of course without Oz you might not have had The Sopranos. Not only was it the guinea pig for HBO to explore that type of show, but it also directly led to Edie Falco getting cast. People forget that they actually wrote her off of Oz so she could switch shows.

Season 3 of Ozark
Season 6 of Schitt's Creek
Season 10 of Curb

Also been watching the HD remaster of Baywatch on Amazon. They've taken out almost all of the music and some music based scenes have been removed completely (kinda like the WWE Network). The show is a gloriously terrible as it always was, but it looks fantastic. It's a fun show to watch compared to today when every good show is dark as shit. I had to stop at Season 7, though. As bad as 1-6 are, somehow 7 is just boring and unwatchable.

One thing I miss about the 80s and 90s shows is that it wasn't one big story and you could just enjoy one episode for what it was.

This. It seems like if you miss a week of something now you miss something significant.
I think they assume everyone can find an on demand for anything they miss quickly so in theory nobody misses and season long stories can be run.

So I’ve added “Cobra Kai” to my rotation. The first 2 seasons are on YouTube for free now. Very fun show, much better than it has any right to be. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and in addition to the usual tropes it’s almost a time machine of a guy trapped in the ‘80s who has to deal with millennials.

"No, I don't give a shit."

For me, it's more about going back and dipping in. I can't just watch one episode of The Wire or Ozark or whatever. None of the individual episodes are at all memorable, but I know which Star Trek or X-Files episodes to watch for whatever mood I'm in.

I am through season 3 of Game of Thrones and it is just terrific, but BRUTAL! I am taking no characters for granted and am really getting behind my gal Dany and her dragons. I wish I was watching when the show was airing so I could comment further- and I don't dare go to any spoiler sites. Season 4 is coming up!!

Bit the bullet and subscribed to Netflix. Binged watched all 10 episodes of Warrior Nun. First 3 episodes were super slow due to setting up the story. All the action started with episode 4. The action is fantastic with the Warrior Nuns fighting demons and with themselves. (If you seen Atomic Blonde with Charlize Theron that is how the fighting was in the show)They really need to concentrate more on the combat than the story. Just when the show started getting really good the season ends.

Dewey Crowe was a special kind of dumb.  "These are rock hard times for Dewey Crowe."

Do you remember when he was in the back of a police car about to be taken away by a random cop.  Raylan told him to quit talking about himself in third person, and Dewey pointed at the cop and said, "This guy?"

Entourage - not many likable characters, but if you like nudity (especially Sasha Grey), give it a shot. Ari Gold was priceless. 
Watched Dexter for the 4th time. The show was great for 4 seasons, then,  Dexter Morgan spun out of control. They never should have killed off Rita. She was a saint.Wish I could find someone like Rita Bennett.

Played by Julie Benz, who was also on Buffy/Angel back in the day. Super hot and super cute at the same time. Definitely sucked when they killed her off. John Lithgow was absolutely amazing the one season he was on, playing a completely different character than anything he’s ever done before.

Unsolved mysteries half way thru the first season

Notre Dame football from the 80’s and 90’s; I’m not a fan in the least bit but Notre dame or someone affiliated have uploaded tons of games to YouTube in complete form minus commercials. I’ve actually watched so many I’m totally burned out on football.

Unsolved Mysteries? The original with Robert Stack? I've been watching a bunch.  I have a nasty habit of starting to watch or rewatch on a whim so I have a ton of shows that i am at various stages with. Loved Unsolved Mysteries.

Airwolf was ok until JMV was written out but I find it way harder to watch now than when it first aired.

Finished the run of the original Fugitive

Now I'm into season 3 of All In The Family and season 2 of Married With Children.
Also watching Land Of The Giants and The Champions.
As well as the various wrestling videos I've been digging into.

The original unsolved, I didn’t watch it back in the day so it’s pretty fun to watch now.


I picked up the airwolf set a few years ago and watched it for the first time in a long time and enjoyed most of the JMV episodes but the episodes after his departure were brutal so when I rewatch it now I stick to the first or first and second season. IMO the first season is the best.

Trying to watch all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in chronological order, not sure how long this effort will last.
Watched the first Captain America movie, now watching the Agent Carter TV series.

Played by Julie Benz, who was also on Buffy/Angel back in the day. Super hot and super cute at the same time. Definitely sucked when they killed her off. John Lithgow was absolutely amazing the one season he was on, playing a completely different character than anything he’s ever done before. 


That was season 4. Trinity was the only Dexter victim who got the better of Dexter, a secret he took to his grave. Dexter had no idea what happened between Trinity & Rita until he went home.
After season 4 the show was all downhill. I say that even tho Yvonne Stahovski is 
my favourite actress.

I love the Office.  It loses something when Carrell leaves, and has some ups and downs but I've watched the series 3 times.

I think it's hokey myself and have been counting down the days when it's finally over.  They're boxed in a corner where in a lot of ways they were right in the center of the MCU at first, but are now completely divorced from it and need to keep coming up with gimmicks as to why they're never involved in anything going on in the movies.  And there's only so many times Coulson can die and they can travel to different timelines to undo things before none of it resonates anymore.

So a few months ago I FINALLY got "real" broadband out at the house..fixed AT&T wireless, $59 a month for 500 gigs. So I cut the cord and have most all of the streaming services, so I've been doing some binging again. My girlfriend never really got to watch a lot of stuff other than kids shows the last 20 years so I've been getting her into some shows I figured she'd like. Binged Dexter, she loved it, this was my 2nd time through the series and what I got out of it was I remember watching it in real time when it ran everyone (including me) thought it really fell off a cliff after season 4, the Trinity killer season. Watching it again, it really didn't..Trinity was hands down THE BEST season of the show but the remaining seasons were fine up until the finale..I'm glad I watched it again..

Showed her Eastbound and Down and the first season of Righteous Gemstones, she's as big a fan now as I am of Danny McBride. I'm also on my own running through Oz again for the first time since the show ended, it's still enjoyable but it's still so over the top sometimes I just laugh..

Since I got her to binge some of my shows I let her talk me into binging Bates Motel, it's actually pretty good. We're two seasons in, when that's over I'm going to get her into Game of Thrones. I showed her the first episode the other night just as a tease and she loved it so she's in for a fun ride with that one..

OH, forgot 2. One, I KNEW this show was great but I only saw a few episodes like 5 seasons in, so I waited for years until I had the change to binge it to get into it. "Workaholics". FUNNY show, really well done. Now I listen to their podcast and Ders mentioned a Netflix show called "Norsemen" and I got into it, it's pretty good as well.

Oh, and Trailer Park Boys. I had a friend tell me how funny it was for years but I thought it just looked stupid but one day I just clicked on it and I was hooked, I finished the entire series and all the movies and spin off shows in like 3 weeks lol..

I was kind of expecting more from Righteous Gemstones to be honest. It was ok though.

The series “Fargo” is fantastic, even blowing away the movie. I watched Season 4 “live” since each season is a stand alone season, then went back and watched Seasons 1 and 2. Will watch Season 3 shortly.

Each season connects in some way but you can enjoy it on its own. Season 1 is more or less a sequel to the movie plus its spiritual reboot at the same time, with Martin Freeman brilliantly playing the William H. Macy type of character and Billy Bob Thornton giving his finest performance in years. Season 2 is the prequel to Season 2 with a couple of the characters 40 years earlier and a whole new story. Season 4 is set 20 years before that and during the credits of the last episode they reveal that the son of Chris Rock grows up to become a main character in Season 2. Just a fantastic series, top notch writing, acting, and some huge stars sprinkled throughout.

I rewatched the entire series just as it was wrapping up in real time.  I'm probably going to watch it again at some point, although I wonder if it will be as amazing the second (actually third) time around.  All-time favorite though.

Probably my favorite intermittent TV series.   This last season did not hold up to the other ones for me until the last few episodes.  Outstanding show.

I agree with that assessment of the last Fargo season. My wife and I almost didn’t watch it because of the slow start. But once it gets going, it is awesome.

So I started binging 30 Rock this week, LOVED it when it originally aired and knew it would be a good watch again. It IS, but...well, considering it was written/created by woke Tina Fey and starred her and Alec Baldwin...this show is REALLY offensive (at least what passes as offensive these days). Fag thrown around all the time, constant gay homo jokes, she male and tranny jokes, etc...they could NOT do this show today and this thing just ended 8 years ago...

With all that going on that won't last forever either.

They pulled a couple of episodes that featured blackface last year. They disappeared from Amazon at the behest of Tina Fey. I assume that Peacock won't bring them back.

Just finished binge watching Justified for the 3rd time(2nd time actually binge watching I guess) and even though I knew the story it still felt like I was watching it for the first time.


I imagine we'll revisit the show at some later date.


The girlfriend gets to pick the next show we binge watch, outside of the regular things we watch. I'm hoping it's not something too frou frou.

Well, last year I finally watched all 53 of Alfred Hitchcock's movies. I had owned about 30 of them on DVD for some time, but had never watched some of them until now. The rest you could find on places like YouTube and various online sources.

I enjoy the Arrowverse, but much like Smallville in the past, I always have to remind myself that the CW is targeted at a young audience, equally male and female, so along with all the pretty good superhero stuff, there is a good dollop of soap opera romance, which I know puts some people off. Having said that, I have watched every episode of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Batwoman, and I'm looking forward to the debut of Superman & Lois tonight. It's a mammoth undertaking if you watch all the series, but when it all ties together in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, it's all worth it.

Speaking of mammoth undertakings, I've finally started watching Stargate. Never watched it at the time, and it's always been quite daunting with 10 series plus spin-offs, but I'm half-way through S2 and enjoying it.

Although it doesn’t feel much like quarantine anymore with everything opened back up in Ohio, the wife and I started watching 24 last week. Neither of us have ever seen it but we were both hooked right away, so far it’s living up to all the hype we’ve heard for years.

I think 24 is very much of its time. I did enjoy it back then (20 years ago! Holy Shit!) but the ends-justify-the-means torture scenes (spoiler?) are a complete turn off for me today. The whole split screen thing was pretty cool, though. I remember it became a bit of a thing in the movies for a while. You never see it today, so I guess the majority of viewers don't like it.

It definitely feels old compared to anything on tv today both in video quality and small things such as a flip phone not getting reception, but I will say the storylines are compelling regardless and I’m enjoying it a lot so far.

My family is trying to watch all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and TV shows in storyline chronological order. While it is helpful for some things like knowing who a character is or the origin of a weapon, it really makes it difficult to follow the TV shows since a lot of stuff can happen between seasons. For example, it took us nearly 4 months to get to the next season of Agents of Shield since there was a number of movies and seasons of other TV shows that we had to watch first. When we are finished, I want to binge watch a few of the TV shows without the other MCU stuff.

Phones and computer styles/sizes definitely betray the age of a show sometimes and can take you out of the moment if you notice them.
