4. binge-watching has become our normal way of watching these types of shows.

wait until there's a full season (at least) of a show before even the first episode.

we've been into british crime dramas more than usual of late. this week, "line of duty".
before that, "shetland" and "hinterland".

we've been watching game of thrones in real time only because spoilers are everywhere.

I sort of wish I'd never watched it (in real time when it was originally broadcast)--like to have those hours back.

But, it was the "thing" at the time. I'm just hoping I don't end up feeling like that about GOT.

24. Forest for the trees

It was painfully obvious that they were all dead the whole time. They were in a plane crash in the middle of the ocean for crying out loud. They would have at least starved.

My daughter turned to us midway through the 3rd season and said, “They’re dead!” We looked at each other and said “Maybe you should watch some more”.

We watched it convincing ourselves there was more to it. In the end it ended as it started, with Jack. It was about his redemption. Were the others also on a journey of redemption or was all of it in Jack’s mind as his life (or his re-imagined life) flashed in front of his eyes? The title alone said it all - He was LOST. Every episode ended in the boom Black like when someone dies.

39. Well, other than that the show makers have clearly said they were not dead all along

I guess it was painfully obvious

https://www.eonline.com/news/521687/lost-bosses-finally-answer-were-they-really-dead-the-whole-time-what-was-the-whole-show-about

They should've packed in some more answers in Seasons 3 and 4 and ended it at Season 4 finale, IMHO.

Seasons 5 and 6 were weak but the first four were pretty fun.

MHO.

Thanks. The purgatory thing was the common assumption. My personal theory was that it was about magnets (actually read a really in depth post about that here on DU) but I just stayed on that to tease my wife.

I thought it was really well done especially with my take on it.

135. Thank You! We love quirky comedies

Have you seen "The Grand Seduction" ? It's about a small town in Nova Scotia which has a shot at landing a stable employer but the employer won't commit because there is no doctor in the town.

Enter a young doctor with a tragic past who comes to the town to just get away from his life.

The townspeople begin plotting ways to keep him there long enough to convince the employer's site committee that in fact there is a doctor and a clinic in the town..

It is a delightful film and full of quirky characters.

BTW, when you finish the series, Amazon has the full-length movie they did a few years later. You have to sort of search for it on prime, but it is there.

I'm now into the second season, maybe the last episode this afternoon.

I prefer the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, or maybe the Tenth, David Tennant.

Though I have to admit I missed most of the Peter Capaldi Doctor and have seen none of the episodes of the most recent one.

I have been to the south a number of times and never wanted to live there. And I have seen that lifestyle in several places all over the country, especially southern California in the '70s.

But the series was hilarious.

44. Not precisely a show, but I've gotten away from it all day by looking at every video of

Dances, interviews, fellow workers for fosse and verdan. My favorites if you want a perfect getaway: verdant pony dance, whatever Lola wants, who's got the pain...fosses early choreography has a sense of humor, just what we need now.

Unforgotten season 4: What will it be about?

Cassie and Sunny will be back to investigate another emotionally charged and compelling cold case - but no details surrounding the historical crime has been shared yet.

In previous series we’ve seen murders motivated by revenge and sexual assault, while prevalent issues such as racism, homophobia, online trolling and historic sexual abuse have also impacted cases

I'm also occasionally watching episodes of The Rifleman. Actually good writing, characters, and story lines.

I'm always on the lookout for past and future stars on these old network shows. You'd be surprised how often Harry Dean Stanton shows up in some supporting role, often credited as Dean Stanton.

With stuff like that I found casually catching a part of an episode here and there harder to follow this season even more than the earlier series and my kid is almost done now , or is done , with watching 4 .
I did not see enough for any spoilers to be ruined so all good and yes,I really need to start from season 1

148. Patriot

... streaming on Amazon Video. Only two seasons (18) episodes so a quick binge, but totally worth it given the show's quality and rich plotting. Now just beginning to ram through "The Good Fight" (CBS All Access) via DVD.

My daughter is currently binge watching and I’m wondering what you all think.

159. The Walking Dead

I've watch the series from the beginning and I love it. Going back and binge watching I have seen new things. It's a great show.

160. The Wire

My son had been bugging me to watch it for years and I finally gave it a try several weeks ago. Now I'm half-way through season 4 and loving it.

165. Almost certainly the best television ever produced

up to that point. Breaking Bad surpasses it, I believe, but only because it had the foundations laid by The Wire to build on in terms of audience acceptance of that sort of storytelling.

167. I agree about Breaking Bad

Also binge watched that one with my wife about 4 years ago. We watched all the seasons in a three-week period. I remember one night I had a tooth-ache and told her I needed to see a dentist on an emergency basis and she asked me of if I could just wait until the episode of Breaking Bad was over...lol.

I put The Wire right up there among my favorites: Sopranos, Madmen, Vikings, and the best - Breaking Bad.

173. Breaking Bad....Yea....I"m a MAJOR

T.V. watcher, binger, etc. and there may be other shows in the future that will top it but I don't believe so in my lifetime (I'm 61). I think there's a kind of a consensus that it's the best (even though I know a whole lot of folks have said GOT is - I can't comment because I never watched it)….

185. GoT is bigger in scope and theme,

and there’s an epic quality to it that Breaking Bad could never achieve. That said, Game of Thrones has holes and missteps, while Breaking Bad never put a foot wrong and had the tightest plotting I’ve ever seen.

I’d love to see something better than Breaking Bad (because that would be amazing) but like you I suspect it’s never to be topped.

on Amazon Prime, they just got the second half of the 5th season. It's a fascinating series.

166. I sorta dropped out right after they captured Paris.

No particular reason, just a short attention span I suppose. I should go back and watch the rest.

176. Love this series, but it's been tough without Ragnar.

Travis Fimmel has a quirky charisma, and he really shined as Ragnar.

Still hanging in with the show, though, but Ivar’s starting to wear on me. His character doesn’t have much shading, in contrast to all the other main cast.

188. Bjorn is easily the most Ragnar-like of the sons

Ivar is an interesting character, and quite different from the other brothers. Sometimes you need that contrast in a show. Don't want to spoil anything for you if you're not caught up.

162. Watched Season 2 of Fleabag this afternoon.

Just as good, and dark, and bittersweet as I was hoping. If you have Prime you owe it to yourself to give this series a try.

169. Dead to Me

Just finished it a couple of days ago. About an odd relationship between women that becomes a friendship. Definitely not your run of the mill stereotype story about women characters or friends. I liked it and recommend it.

182. I didn't discover that one until it was in reruns.

Luckily it was all over basic cable in the early 2000s so I got to see it regularly. So much more real than any other sitcom.

184. I read where Frankie Mutz(SP) had two strokes when he was 27 and can't remember a lot of things

about the show. I wish they would do a reunion episode. I would like to know what all the characters are doing now.

178. "The Last Kingdom" on Netflix.

At first, I felt it was kind of a “Vikings” knockoff, but 3 episodes in, I was hooked. My wife got hooked in as well.

Many excellent performances, highly recommended!

181. Mixed feelings on that one.

Good performances and a great story (the source books are probably Bernard Cornwell’s best writing) but so many utterly idiotic and jarring moments where they butcher the history that it makes my skin crawl, none of which occur in the novels.

The Anglo-Saxons and Danes should have broadly the same equipment, yet the Saxon warriors carry these ridiculous little square shields that accomplish nothing. The Danish “shield wall” is some absurd parody of a Roman testudo with no basis in reality, and everyone’s armor is just all over than damned place in terms of accuracy.

That said, great story.

192. It's true, and historical inaccuracies can sink a weaker story.

I’m also an extreme stickler for getting the details done right, when it comes to historical pieces, but it’s a rare thing to see. A couple examples:
- In the final episode of the outstanding “Band of Brothers,” the guys are playing baseball, but the gloves they’re using are clearly 1960s-80s vintage, definitely NOT what what you’d use in 1945.
- In John Houston’s masterful (but cut to pieces by studio execs) “Red Badge of Courage,” the Union infantry have 1876 crossed-rifles insignia affixed to their kepis, so NOT Civil War era correct. Also, due to budgetary constraints, the film was shot in Calabasas and Chico, California. Dry grass, native oak trees...all straight out of “Steinbeck country,” definitely not Virginia.

Being a history buff myself, when I see these goofs, it pulls me out of the story. So, as with a series like “Last Kingdom,” I just have let accuracy slide a bit, and focus on the characters and the basic narrative.

On Amazon. Best police drama on TV. Less formulaic than all the Dick Wolf productions.
