Quote from: MN Dave on April 27, 2015, 06:26:39 AMWhich two of the three, Gordo? Yes, the Richter soundtrack is great!
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 27, 2015, 05:27:23 AMI greatly enjoy Blacklist; I get my share of vicarious, gratuitous violence, enough to last me the week. The mystery is nice too.
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on April 27, 2015, 07:02:21 AMJust watched seasons 1 & 2 of the web series Adult Wednesday Addams. Hysterical, and creepy Unfortunately the Charles Addams Foundation has gotten the series banned for copyright infringement so it is no longer available on YouTube.
Quote from: Gordo on April 27, 2015, 06:37:54 AMHave you watched Sherlock (BBC One), Gurn? Cumberbatch and Freeman portray a very successful image of the relationship between Holmes and Watson. It's a fantastic modernized version.
Quote from: sanantonio on April 27, 2015, 07:35:17 AMIf you have Amazon Prime most of these shows are included in Prime Instant Video. Unless your Internet connection is to slow for streaming. That's how I watch; I hardly ever watch actual TV anymore.
Quote from: Todd on April 27, 2015, 07:44:02 AMI'm more interested in television than movies right now, and I generally prefer comedy to drama. Wolf Hall - Well, I'm trying to watch it, but 10:00 PM is just too late to watch full episodes, and I don't have a recording device. (I'm an OTA and Netflix & Amazon guy, not a cable and DVR guy.) Slow pace, but quite good from what I have seen. I'll have to watch all episodes later.House of Cards - Season three of the US version. It should be subtitled The Wussification of Frank Underwood.Breaking Bad - Rewatching. I'm stuck on season five. The show does not hold up very well on a second viewing.Justified - Ready for second season.The Last Man on Earth - Great stuff. So glad it was picked up for a second season. The best broadcast sitcom I know of.The Middle - Formulaic but entertaining. Black-ish - The predictable lamentations about how the show was/is racist prompted me to watch, and it is entertaining enough to keep watching. It does have some jokes that may make certain people flinch. I mean, come on, a black doctor making a comment on Martin Luther King Jr not being a real doctor, how can that not be racist? And who knew Lawrence Fishburne was so good at comedy?Inside Amy Schumer - Chicks can do vulgar humor, too. Season two.It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - So crass, so funny. Possibly the greatest sitcom on television now. I'm on season six.Wilfred - The best ever sitcom about a mentally ill person. Season three, with four ready and waiting. Archer - I'm on season five, "Archer Vice", which is not as good as prior seasons, but it is still good 'n' raunchy.Dr Who - Season eight. Not a fan, but my daughter insists that I watch it with her. Peter Capaldi makes the show far more bearable than the prior seasons.How the States Got Their Shapes - Family friendly viewing filled with mildly entertaining bits of trivia. I've liked host Brian Unger since he was on the original (and better) The Daily Show in the 90s, and he keeps the show moving.And waiting until next year for season five of Game of Thrones. No spoilers please! (The line "All men must die" does leave me in some doubt as to the fate of the human characters.)

Quote from: sanantonio on April 27, 2015, 08:08:58 AMI guess you mean "threat" - and I agree. Movies seem to be going for the special effects, action-adventure genre, aimed at younger audiences, which do not interest me. There are independent films which come around once in a while. But generally I think the long form of television series writing can be much more interesting.
Quote from: Gordo on April 26, 2015, 06:16:35 PMTonight, while I dined, I watched a new chapter of the TV series "Orphan Black" (BBC America, 3rd Season), aired yesterday.
Quote from: Daverz on April 27, 2015, 02:16:39 PMI don't think I finished the first season. Tatiana Maslany is a fabulous actor, but the writing just lost my interest.
