Anyone Watching a Decent Amazon or Netflix Series?

Recommended Posts

Getting desperate for a decent new series. I've gone through all of the good ones, like Justified, Longmire, Hell on Wheels, Breaking Bad, Goliath, Jack Ryan, Bosch, Better Call Saul, etc. Didn't like Ozark -- too dark. Any suggestions?

We are into the second season of “Fringe” on IMDB channel.  A present day science fiction series with Special Agents using the services of an eccentric scientist to solve crimes perpetrated by other mad criminal scientists.  Some familiar faces in the cast.  Free with commercials during the show.  A JJ Abrams production.

 

”Hart Of Dixie” on Netflix.  Comedy Southern satire, kind of a cross between “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Doc Hollywood”.  Gorgeous young lady surgeon from big city winds up in Alabama small town practice.  Chick flick with eye candy for guys.  Watch with your wife.

Firefly - Science Fiction for cowboys.

The Adventures of Briscoe County Jr. - Campy Sci-Fi (sort of) for cowboys.

The Expanse - It's what Science Fiction is supposed to be.

 

and yeah, I'm just an old geek.

No suggestions as you listed all the best shows already. :D

"Episodes" on Netflix.

Story is about a British married couple who wrote an award-winning comedy series in the UK.  Brought over to Hollywood to do a similar series for US tv.  Chaos follows.

A real funny series but a lot of "adult" scenes and language so be prepared...

"Downton Abbey"  on Amazon.

 

Wife and I enjoyed this series so much we've watched it twice.   Everyone I know that has watched "Downton Abbey" has liked it.

Have you seen Godless?

 

You did not mention that one.

 

A pretty good western mini-series.

The wife and I really enjoyed Fringe.  (I don't see it available on Netflix, though.)

 

Towards the end, though still enjoyable, was not as good as the earlier episodes.

 

ETA:  I don't have the IMBD channel, only limited access to Netflix and Dish Anywhere.

Korean zombie series called 'Kingdom' on Netflix was top notch.  Period piece that takes place in the Josean era after many Japanese invasions.

For light watching, Col. Marsh of Scotland Yard, head of the Department of Queer Complaints. The Amazon series started in 1956 and stars Boris Karloff. He solves weird, and sometimes improbable mysteries. Another real classic is the series with Inspector Morse of Oxford on Britbox.  Am a firm British mystery fan.

 

I'm currently starting Longmire, complex plots and a bit hard to follow at times. Really liked Justified and Bosch.

My wife and I really enjoyed "Persons of Interest" with Jim Caveziel.   We watched "Longmire" twice, and also enjoyed "Blacklist".    All are quite interesting if you like a series to keep you hanging until the next episode......

Have you seen the Outlander series?  It's on Starz, but I think you can access it through Amazon.

 

There are a few scenes that will need follow-up eye bleach (and possibly therapy) but otherwise it's quite good, with Scottish, English, French and early American history woven into the story.

“Last Kingdom”.  I’ve read the books.  This is one where the films are better than the books, in my opinion. They drag on in the books where the film format keeps the story moving.

Last Kingdom and The Vikings are both really good. Last Kingdom actually has some historical accuracy. The Kings Andrew, Edward and Esel something are true to the original Saxon linage. Arrow heads are accurate, Helmets?

I liked Morse, then Inspector Lewis, Endeavor might be the best of them.

Blacklist and The Punisher.  Both a little dark, but The Punisher is definitely darker.

Finished the Homeland series today....stay tuned. <— for those that have watched

 

if I was allowed to do meth, I wouldn’t have slept or worked  between episodes.

 

My wife will be happy because I’m not hogging the living room tv watching my stupid spy shows.
