    Netflix Binge Watching

    Some of these series are addicting. Just one more episode and I'll go to bed.

    Anything good I am missing?

    I have done:

    Dexter
    Breaking Bad
    Better Call Saul
    Hand of God
    House of Cards
    Bloodline

    Might be a few others that I am forgetting.

    Oh yea, there are a bunch.
    Narcos
    The Fall
    Peaky Blinders
    Better Call Saul (as mentioned)
    Portlandia
    to name a few. Portlandia had me in tears from laughing so hard.

    Sons of Anarchy was pretty good. Just took forever to watch.

    Yep, re-watching Sons of Anarchy now. Pretty brutal but well done.

    I'm going to say that I'm not really watching Peaky Blinders any more. After several episodes I started noticing certain cliches, & then it got to where I was figuring out what was going to happen next. I lost interest after that.

    Think yourselves lucky lads, my Missus is working "Us" through the Grimm boxset, all four seasons.

    Agree 100%

    deadwood was a high water mark.

    breaking bad a close second

    and I just watched twin peaks for the first time as it's coming back on showtime and i really dug that.

    the new series the Patriot on Amazon is fantastic.

    If you liked Deadwood, you will love Hell on Wheels !

    First few episodes are a little slow. After that, addictive !

    Yes, Hell on Wheels is fun.

    My brother in law, James Nealey, draws the storyboard for House of Cards. Season 5 comes out in May, I'm told. Season 6 has potential too.

    INTERIOR: A SMOKE-FILLED ROOM IN THE BACK OF A RESTAURANT.
    Rumpled 50-something man steps up to podium.
    MAN [microphone briefly feeds back]: Hello, welcome to the weekly meeting of Anglophiles Anonymous. Do we have any new members?

    ED: [Raises hand. Says quietly and with some reservation] Hi all. My name is Ed…and I’m a closet video Anglophile.

    ALL: Hi Ed.

    # # # # # #


    I haven’t watched much of anything in the past year due to work scheduling issues and the move to Texas other than an occasional half-hour Big Bang Theory episode with my wife, but when I bought my first Roku box a few years ago, I binge-watched lots of British TV on Acorn, including Rumpole of the Bailey, which was fun to watch the Falstaffian Leo McKern chew the scenery. I also binged on Poirot – it’s a rare privilege to watch an actor like David Suchet age into a role. Most of the time when an actor takes on a role that makes him famous and plays it for decades, he becomes too old, such as Shatner as Capt. Kirk in the Star Trek movies, or Connery and Roger Moore at the end of their stints as James Bond. But Suchet, who in retrospect was likely too young to portray Agatha Christie's Poirot catches up with the character’s age by the end of the series. And it’s also fascinating watching a series that began as rather light drawing room faire tackle something like the Lindbergh baby kidnapping in the blood-curdling Murder on the Orient Express. Kenneth Branagh is remaking that chapter as a big-screen movie for this November, but I’m not sure if I can watch another actor in the role.

    Not Anglophile material, but on Amazon Prime in 2015, I was obsessed with The Man in the High Castle, or as I dubbed the pilot in my review, the TV series version of Robert Harris’s what-if book Fatherland. But with an incredible mind-f*ck ending in its first season’s last episode. I really do need to catch up with that series’ second season.

    Ed, maybe try these:

    The Sweeney
    The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin.
    The Boys from the Blackstuff
    Inspector Morse.
    Ripper Street
    Life on Mars

    and if you're feeling really bold, the "This is England, '86...'88...'90 " triptych.

    season two somehow was better than season 1 in man in the high castle. How could I forget that-

    cool review ! I'm on to your ones on how to make a studio control room

    and if you are an Anglophile did you check out Black Mirror? Fantastic. Like a modern day ray Bradbury

    Re: Netflix Binge Watching

    I am under-utilizing my Netflix subscription, so I'm trying to catch up. New and old shows I'm watching:

    Longmire
    Marvel's Iron Fist (New -- but some of it seems like re-hashed superhero goop).
    Into to the Badlands
    The OA
    Black Mirror (a British blend of Twilight Zone and Dark Sci-Fi)
    Portlandia
    Z Nation (A more tongue-in-cheek Walking Dead)

    Good timing.

    S3 begins Monday, 10 April. I already pre-purchased the season on Amazon Prime Video. Looking forward to it.

    I REALLY gotta catch up on this tech. Since I retired 4 or 5 years ago I have become a Luddite...I suppose my screaming 8Mbps interweb (retirement special price! twice what you get Google fibers for...) is probably slow?

    I've been loving Ken Burns' documentary called "The West" There are some great docu's on there.
    Also "Mozart in the Jungle" and "Crazy Ex Girlfriend" is very funny!

    Anything by Ken Burns is good and there's lots of it on Netflix.

    I enjoyed:
    Breaking Bad
    Better Call Saul
    Bloodline
    Mad Men
    Narcos
    Orange is the new Black
    Weeds

    After Narcos they also have the Colombian show it is based on, I believe called Pablo Escobar: Patron de Mal.
    The colombian version runs about 10 seasons but it is even better than Narcos if you don't mind subtitles or if you comprende un poquito espanol.

    I couldn't finish Sons of anarchy. It got too silly and too drawn out.
