If you have paramount+ and like The Godfather, watch "The Offer. " it's outstanding.
Watching s3 of "For All Mankind". First 2 episodes set things up and I am liking the way things are headed.
Billy Swans version of Don't Be Cruel at Danny's Wedding in ep1, was awesome and signaled that the little episode between Karen and him isn't done in his mind.
I've been watching "The Citadel" on Amazon Prime. It's quite good.
Also heard that "Rabbit Hole" with Keifer Sutherland on Paramount+ is good.
The Citadel is on my watch list.
Things I've watched that I liked
Night Agent -Netflix
The English- Prime
Three Pines= Prime
The Last Thing He Told Me - Apple TV
My Octopus Teacher - Netflix A fascinating documentary on a single octopus.
Avatar 2 - Disney if you didn't catch it in the theater.
Ted Lasso Season 3 - Apple.
Me...Tucker Carlson reruns....I have MLB season ticket, so I've spent the month of April pissed off....and went back and started watching Boston Legal again....Denny Crane....DENNY CRANE!...
Started Citadel... Quite the opening fight scene!
A couple of things I've watched recently that I like.
Hijack on Apple TV...Thriller stuff
Shrinking on Apple TV .... very funny
Sharp Objects on Max ....Amy Adams is the star, way different role. Mystery
Cruel Summer on Hulu ...mystery, 2 seasons not related though. Central Characters are teens.
I forgot about Justified...it's in Detroit. Rayland Gibbons has a bit more grey but the same demeanor! Just no Crowders around as foils. It's been good, and it's karma that he has a a teen daughter who gives him ****.
Yeah a little too much family drama...but he's still Rayland.
I'm watching the reruns of a couple of slightly older British serials (1990s-early 2000s) on Acorn and Britbox. One is an ongoing mystery set in WW II entitled "Foyle's War". The other is a comedy entitled "As Time Goes By", light and funny, with Dame Judi Dench as the female lead.
I've started up with Special Ops" Lioness on Paramount +, has Zoe Saldana, Jill Wagner and Nicole Kidman plus a bunch of others. I've been a big fan of Jill Wagner, she's done a bunch of Hallmark stuff and she's a "babe" IMHO. But she's pretty butch in this series, maybe a Lesbian. Big time different role for her.
I'm liking it so far.
Count me a fan of Jill Wagner.
Anyone else watch "Welcome to Wrexham" on Hulu or FX? If you're looking for an interesting show with a feel good vibe, I'd reccomend that.
I really enjoyed Foyles War. We're big fans of Britbox and British crime dramas. Some others we enjoyed "Unforgotten", "River", "The Tunnel", "Split". Highly recommend all. Also just finished "Jack Ryan" now looking forward to new season of "Billions"
BT, your post is timely for me. I just finished the last season of Foyle's War and now am looking for another similar program. I'll check out the four you recommend.
Good to hear. I loved the young lady driver in Foyle and also the character "DCI Cassie Stuart" in Unforgotten she plays the lead in several others. Hope you enjoy them
Just finished Season 1 of Lioness. I enjoyed it. 2 really bad a$$ women, not wise to get on their bad side!
Currently watching Van der Valk - detective/murder mystery series set in Amsterdam. Pretty good
Did you see the final episode? Boyd Crowder is back...totally unrelated to this season's story. Must be planning a third season.
A friend recommended Endeavour, a British mystery series, 2012 to March, 2023, via Amazon Prime. I So far I've seen the pilot and first three episodes. I thought they were great if you're into "gripping" mysteries.
