What'cha Watchin'? (Possible Spoilers)

A vlogger on YouTube? A new Netflix original? An old series you found on Hulu or Amazon? Do you have a recommendation? What was your favorite series? How many binges have you had? You get the idea :wink:

I want to hear about it. I’m always looking for new things to watch. I cut the cable cord nearly 5 years ago and haven’t looked back. But, I’m always searching for new stuff to watch once a binge is over.

With so many cord cutters out there a lot of us are behind the times of certain series so as I mentioned in the title, there will probably be spoilers in here …read at your own risk :wink:

Remember you can blur a spoiler if you want to by clicking on the little gear symbol when replying.

Anyhoo … I’ll get you started. I’m just about to start season 4 of Sons of Anarchy… and OMG it’s intense.

I hear there are a couple sequels in the works :smiley: Mayans MC is set to premiere this Fall I believe and there is a possible prequel in the works to tell the life of John Teller, Jax’s father. And even a current day telling of what life is like from the finale of SOA.

I can’t wait to see whatever is offered. I just hope I can get through the rest of the series without having a heart attack lol … I already know a couple spoilers that I’m trying to block out :smiley:

I’ve also watched The West Wing twice, House of Cards, LOST 3x, Frasier and Friends countless times lol, Grace and Frankie, Doctor Who originals and new series, Stranger Things S1,(season two is on my list) All the Star Treks … and I do mean all, and many others. That’s just what I remember off the top of my head.

Right now I’m anxiously awaiting the the arrival of OITNB S6!! Loveee this series :slight_smile:

– Fraiser
– Better Call Saul
– Breaking Bad
– Shameless (hysterical, but not for the kids)
– Ozark
– Arrested Development (seasons 1-3, didn’t care for season 4, haven’t seen season 5)
– Flaked (my wife was luke warm on this one, but I enjoyed it)

I’ll have to post more as I think of them.

If you liked Orange is the New Black, make sure you check out GLOW on Netflix.

I cut the cord a few years ago too when I decided to stop following sports. Don’t miss it at all. I’ll activate Netflix for a month twice a year to get caught up. I really like GLOW, Master of None, Flaked, Freaks and Geeks, Better Call Saul, The IT Crowd. The Judd Apatow series Love was awesome.

I’ve got a county library down the street and with an expansive catalog. They’ll have stuff shipped from other libraries if they don’t have it. I’m working on Veep right now. And I read a lot of books. I just finished You Never Give Me Your Money, about the business history of the Beatles after they broke up.

Mostly I go to the movies though. I have Moviepass and I live less than 50 yards from a multiplex. I see everything and am there 3 or 4 nights a week. I really liked Hearts Beat Loud. An older guy with a failing record store tries to get his daughter to pass on med school to join him in forming a band. And Incredibles 2 was fun too. I don’t usually go in for kids movies but there is a big mid-century modern vibe to the art, and I’m a fan of that style.

On Amazon Prime, I’ve been watching the old Star Trek Enterprise series from the early 2000s. I saw all the episodes when they first came out, but enough time has gone by that I remember very little about them. Science fiction is always my favorite.

Something about Giovanni Ribisi . . . ever since I saw him in Boiler Room . . . damn, almost 20 years ago now, he’s been a favorite. Watch it from S1 E1.

I haven’t watched The Ranch yet … a lot are saying it pretty good :smiley:

I have binged on Sopranos a few times and AHS is an all time fav … however I couldn’t get into this last one. I stopped after a couple episodes. I couldn’t take the political angle … It’s torture enough in real life lol. Same with the new House of Cards. A little to real for me right now.

I’ll have to give them a shot at some point.

I did however just binge Coven again … my ab fab of the AHS series :smiley:
