With the current situation of having to work from home for the foreseeable future, it's given me an opportunity to use Amazon Prime and Netflix a lot more than normal!

Currently I'm binge watching THE SAINT.  I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the show.  I don't know what I'm moving on to next as I'm only into the second season (out of six) at the moment, but suggestions are always nice.

Anyone else binge watching stuff?

Watched the first four episodes of SOUNDTRACK on Netflix.

Not really binging much of anything, just watching a few movies and the shows we normally DVR.

OZARK Season 3.  Netflix.  Fantastic.

UNBELIEVABLE.  Limited series  Netflix.  Wow.  Amazing.

Catching up on this season of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE.  It's still as amazing now as it was years ago.  Just wonderful. 

We have lots in the hopper, but these are our most recent.

EPIX has a series called Pennyworth about Alfred Pennyworth in an alternate history London, and his association with Thomas Wayne, etc. I cannot quite place the era of the show - maybe late 40s or early 50s - but it's a lot of fun.

TV Wise, I've gone back to the 80's. 

I'd started on Miami Vice 2 - 3 episodes a day, but decided I wanted a bit of lighter fare for now, so I am going through "Magnum, P.I." and "Simon & Simon". Watching two episodes of each a day which at 45 minutes per episode without adds kills 3 hours of my day.

"Simon & Simon" is good, Jameson Parker and Gerald McRaney are likeable and affable leads, and it passes the time, but it falls short when compared to "Magnum, P.I." and "The Rockford Files" which are far superior shows. 

I think "Magnum, P.I." holds up really well. The writing is great, the production values are great, and it manages a good balance between drama and humour (like Rockford). There are a few weak episodes. I do notice that when the story does drag Tom Selleck and John Hillerman up their game to pull the audience through.

I made it all of the way through ALTERED CARBON's first season, but just three episodes into the second.

I started THE BOYS, but stopped after episode 5.

I'm tempted to give RUNAWAYS a try.

I've been going thru my TOS dvd's in a random order. I find if I mix in a season 3 episode at maybe a 4:1 ratio it doesn't hurt as bad.

My lunchtime watch is 3 episodes of THE RIFLEMAN. I'm just about thru with season 2. I'm pretty hard on child actors but Johnny Crawford isn't bad.

I'll give the TOS a try. Maybe it will turn me into a Trek fan.

DirecTv is currently in the middle of 2 weeks free in being able to watch EPIX.  Unfortunately, Pennyworth is not being shown during this time, but I have been able to record War of the Worlds.

Skip the third season. If you see a blue logo, run!

Last night I started into a from-the-start binge watch of the fantastic MR ROBOT, which I have yet to see the fourth and final season.


The previous week I had been re-digesting a number of James Burke documentaries and specials.  
(note: some of these are not available by tradiational home video means, if you get my drift)  

*CONNECTIONS, particularly the first series from 1978 but the later two series from the 1990s are quite good as well.

*THE DAY THE UNIVERSE CHANGED
-Just as good, if not better in some ways than CONNECTIONS.

There's a smattering of smaller series and specials:
 
*THE MEN WHO WALKED ON THE MOON/THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON 
--Burke was the main host of the BBCs coverage of the Apollo moon landings.  Much like a lot of early Doctor Who this footage was sadly destroyed, so all we have are Burke's 10th anniversary documentaries.

*THE NEURON SUITE, MASTERS OF ILLUSION, THE REAL THING
--All very interesting forays into the nature of perception and how that pertains to what we call 'reality'.

*AFTER THE WARMING
--Worth watching for it's late 80s take on what we now call 'climate change' and how their predictions compare to what we are experiencing now.
