All In The Family is on Prime. Way ahead of it’s time.

Am I the only one who hated all the characters except Archie?

At least he was funny, not annoying.

I came late to the game for “The Blacklist.” It started in 2013. And wow… has it ever been prophetic about the state of politics!

I enjoyed James Spader in Boston Legal, but I was never all that keen about him (no pun intended). But here, in Blacklist? Wow. His acting chops came to the fore. He gives Michael Emerson’s Benjamin Linus a run for his money. Anyway, there’s 7 seasons. I’m just starting Season 3. And with 22 episodes per season, this is one heck of an epic series. There’s some predictability to it, but lots that is difficult to predict. Many twists/turns that, while unexpected, are plausible.

Another great series is “Designated Survivor.” I think it’s the best work Kiefer Sutherland has done thus far. I wasn’t a fan of him from his “24” days, doing the Jack Bauer character. But this… is amazing work. It’s the most realistic US government drama I’ve ever seen. Frankly, I wish we had a real Tom Kirkman for president these days!

Sherlock 2010

Benedict Cumberbatch is superb as Sherlock Holmes. And his chemistry with Martin Freeman is astoundingly good. Super series. The US version is OK but so very different. The episode clutches are small. They really took their time making these, trying to interleave production around the commitments of the actors. And despite the end of season 4 finishing 4 years ago, the 5th season possibility is still floating about. Cumberbatch and Freeman really want to do a 5th season, and I can see why—they really LOVE working together! So hopefully it’ll happen sometime soon.

Don’t bother watching season 2 and 3, it’s crap, but first is mind blowing.

I’d completely forgotten about this one… Thought it looked like a good pairing. Both of those actors are so quirky and controversial. Weird how it went from mind blowing to not worth it, in the span of just one season. What went wrong?

Ever watch “Andromeda“?

S1 was amazing, ‘til Sorbocles got his mitts into it, then it went to shiite.

I still watched it in desperation, hoping it’d get back on track and get better, but nope. Warlords and barfights and random badguys grunting, turned it into H:TLJ-in-space.

S1 was actually intellectual, and subsequent seasons got dumbed down to the point of being insulting. I could almost feel my IQ dropping point by point by point.

I’d read the book many years ago and felt “meh” about it… so never gave the series a look. Felt better rewatching Star Trek. Wink Yeah, from what you describe I could see it having a negative mental drain. Unfortunate when this happens… all that money thrown to waste.

Just like the Lost In Space reboot. So much potential. But the Dr. Smith bit… with Parker Posey of all people… very bad choice.

Garage People. I flicked over to BBC 4 last night and this was on. I was mesmerised, thought I was watching an art movie, but it’s a nicely filmed and fascinating documentary on the real lives of these people in Northern Russia. If you can, find the whole documentary but here is the trailer.

I’m enjoying Knob Creek S1. Kind of like Lonesome Dove in a way

I’m addicted to Animal Kingdom. I think I’m going to rewatch Dexter before the new season comes out. Also getting caught up on the Expanse. Looks insane on a 150 inch screen

If I were to rewatch Dexter, I think I might skip Season 7, and I would definitely skip Season 8.

Yeah it did get a little slow. I think Season 1 was one of the best first seasons of any show I’ve seen.

I recently started binging ‘See’ the one with Jason Momoa and now Bautista in it. Pretty interesting – post-apocalyptic setting where all of humanity has lost sight for many centuries.
