Watched "The Admiral: Roaring Currents". It's pretty good.   Based on a true story about one of the greatest naval battles ever fought.  Korean Admiral Yi with 12 ships goes up against the Japanese navy of 330 ships in 1597.  LINK

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Is anyone else out there a fan of British comedy?  I feel like I'm the only one who enjoys it.
 
Anyway, if anyone likes Ricky Gervais and his famous 'mockumentary' style of television, then I highly recommend his 2012 Netflix series 'Derek.'
 
It's a somewhat simple comedy series with some bits of heavy, dramatic moments mixed in.  I found myself in tears a few times over the course of the first series.
 



Derek was pretty good. My favorite British show is French and Saunders but they still don't have a digital version of it and I loaned my dvds to someone like 10 years ago.

Been watching the "Roman Empire: Reign of Blood" series.  It's the story of Commodus, son of Marcus Aurelius. Commodus was the Joaquin Phoenix character in the movie Gladiator.  

 

The format of this series is quite unique.  It's like half documentary and half historical fiction series.  Every so often the cut the acting and switch to one of a handful of professors who explain the context.     :thumbs:

season 1, episode 12:  "What you need."  The best episode of the Twilight Zone.  IMHO.

Just got around to watching Defiance.  Pretty good movie.  Supposed to be based on a true story.  

 

Edit:  Recognize the guy to the left, above?  He played Ross Rhea, the enforcer in "Goon".  :lol:

Started watching the Netflix series "Frontier."   Seems pretty good so far.  

 

The protagonist, Declan Harp--the guy in the middle above--was Khal Drogo on GoT.

After binge watching the first five episodes, I have to say that I'm disappointed.  Too many plot errors and implausible events.  And the characters are cartoonish stereotypes.  I had such high hopes. :hmmph:

Not yet.  Might be good viewing for my wife and I.  It's incredibly difficult to find any TV she likes.  No GoT.  No HBO series at all.  Nothing that I've ever mentioned in this thread.  About the only genre she'll watch is chick flick comedies.

OH, WELL THIS ISN'T REALLY A TYPICAL ROM-COM TYPE SHOW. I WOULD STILL GIVE IT A TRY, AND WATCH AT LEAST 2 EPISODES. THE 1ST EPISODE IT REALLY SETTING UP THE SERIES.

Stay away from Bonnie and Clyde movie (2013).  Inaccurate big time ...... I hated it.  At least B&C (1967 version) was somewhat accurate.

Better Call Saul is good and of course it's required viewing for Breaking Bad fans.

I can't stand The Young Pope. My wife has been watching it but I find it extremely boring and uninteresting. It seems to be well made but I just don't like it at all.

I love Saul!

I think the YP is excellent in every respect and pretty much gives an inside look into the freak show that is the Catholic Church and Vatican, of which I'm not a fan at all. I think they're all a buncha delusional cross dressing fools...and that's why I like it! Great production though, real hip music.

Americans is my fav, I love that spy stuff and kerry russell is hot!

Call the Midwife has been a surprise. It's about a group of Nurse midwives working with Anglican Nun midwives in 1950s East-end London. This is the early days of the National Health Service (i.e. free healthcare), post-WWII rebuilding, and massive social change. My wife picked it and I was skeptical going into it; it starts off a little slow but it is very good. We are just getting into season 3 and season 6 just started in UK. Makes me want to read the memoirs on which it is based. We are streaming via PBS online subscription but also available on Amazon...

If you read the book it is excellent. The movie is a poor reenactment of the book.

Just watched a documentary on Hulu called "Dirty Wars".  It is about uncovering secret ops and cover-ups in the Middle East and surrounding countries.  Really sheds a different light on Obama and what the President is capable of.

Saw it mentioned once but Bates Motel is a show I enjoy. Shameless is another one I like to watch on Netflix

I'm sure this has already been mentioned but Narcos is a really good series on Netflix. Been semi binging that one. Very interesting fact based account of Pablo Escobar and the Medellin drug cartel.

Not sure this has been mentioned but...

Glitch

Is phenomenal. Obviously unrealistic, but I love that stuff. 6 episodes. Season 2 is this fall I believe. It's kinda along the same lines as Stranger Things.

Finally thought I'd give Sons of Anarchy a whirl about a week ago. Almost gave up after the first few episodes, seemed a little farfetched and I had trouble relating but then it pulled me in. Really good IMO. I'm early in season 3 and I really need to quit watching every night into the wee hours. I'm sleep deprived. It's not quite as good as Breaking Bad or Sopranos but pretty close. From some of the other comments sounds like there's a couple stinker seasons coming up but really enjoying it so far. I would sure recommend to anyone who hasn't watched it yet.

I haven't watched Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad or the Sopranos.  I should make those a priority for the rest of the year.

Sons of Anarchy didn't really do much for me.  I'd skip out on it, at least in terms of the three you mentioned.  Breaking Bad and The Sopranos are probably two of the best television shows in history.  Sons of Anarchy is nowhere close to being in their league.

Schitt's Creek is great

 

SOA is good.  But i always find myself wondering why they work so hard to be criminals.  Like there is always something bad happening to them.

 

Breaking Bad is great television although I can't stand Walter's wife

 

Shameless is great

 

The Netflix Marvel shows are all great

 

Deadwood is very good.  Al Swearingen is probably top 3 all time TV characters

 

Red Oaks is on Amazon Prime-Worth the watch if you have that

 

Sopranos is GOAT

 

Nurse Jackie is very very good.

I agree SOA is not in the same league as Breaking Bad or Sopranos but what I've seen, so far through s3e3 anyway, is solid entertainment. But I do see where some of the negative comments are coming from. At first I had trouble with believability and relating to the characters. Now the thing bothering me is that it is just one bad thing after the other and the whole baby kidnapping storyline is a little lame imo. Show could use a few more feel good moments.

Did they go to Ireland yet?  That was brutally bad.

 

I, like you, could not stop watching it though.  There was something still entertaining about it

Season 3 in Ireland was meh.  Season 4 got better.

I am completely enthralled in The Blacklist.  Just started the 3rd season.  It's getting very good.

I liked it.  I sort of stopped watching it but not for any bad reason.  But I think it is a cool show.

It's interesting you mention this.  I listen to a gaming podcast called Mega 64 and they were having a very similar to discussion to this, about how a lot of television has strayed so far into the "everything is terrible" genre.  It's just one calamity after another after another, and their hope (on the podcast) is that we're coming to end of those shows and that soon we may get back to more balanced creativity.

In the 1980s we had this cloud of gloom overhanging all of society. We legit thought there was going to be nuclear war with the Soviet Union at any time. Reagan was all about brash talk, we heard the same thing back from the Kremlin, and overall everything was just gloomy and meh.

The entertainment of the time reflected that. LOTS of calamity movies, lots of dystopian futures, lots of scenes of destruction.

Then the 1990s hit, the Soviet Union collapsed, and everything was happy-go-lucky & more fun. Entertainment reflects life. I think we're going to continue to have calamity after calamity in movies & games until the end of the Trump era, or at least until Trump convinces everyone he's not driving us to the cliff.

Includes the BTN, which is the biggest reason I got rid of Sling. Without BTN, it's not worth it.

Also, unlimited cloud DVR.
