Any recommendations for comedies?
Marvelous Mrs Maisel on Amazon is pretty good.
Arrested Development is back.
Big Mouth was raunchy but very funny.
Wet Hot American Summer has a few seasons.
I heard Flaked was funny, but never saw it.
Watched The Five, which is from the same guy as Safe. Mystery with twists and turns. It was darker and pretty crazy. Worth a watch.
Anyone watching Riverdale? It's one of those shows that I enjoy watching, but I am annoyed by almost all of the characters. It's interesting to me because of the comic aspect. It's pretty dark. Not sure if would have watched if it was any town/school.
Finished Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why. Very disappointed with the last episode even though I think it was a pretty good season. Felt very unsatisfied. Good thing there will be a 3rd season to hopefully shore up some things.
‘13 Reasons Why’ Renewed For Season 3 By Netflix
My wife and I are watching Line of Duty, an English tv show that is on Hulu. On season 2 right now so it kept our interest so far.
We watch quite a few British TV shows. Closed caption is our friend.
Mine in no particular order:
Shameless Showtime Frank Gallagher rules!
House of Lies HBO Don Cheadle is great, it's a comedy *Viewer discretion advised
Entourage Jeremy Piven as agent Ari Gold is well, gold. Another comedy
Weeds Mrs. GK and I binged through that one in less than a month.
Keeping Up Appearances British comedy, Hyacinth as the stuffy wife is hilarious.
I use Roku, Roku TV and Pluto TV are free, and I pay for Amazon Prime but I use that for other reasons too so it pays for itself. I've tried Sling, Hulu and Netflix and it depends on which one gets you what you want when deciding which one to pay for. They're all good. I use a digital antennae for local channels, and I have two pubs I can walk to for football games.
Just finished The Five tonight, very good. I thought both Safe & The Five were exceptional. Hopefully he will do another series.
I’m almost thru it.
It’s ok. Seems to have a bit too much going on.
If you can stand a few ads you can also use VUDU (rent and buy options too), Crackle, tubi TV, snagfilms, popcornflix, all free.
Vudu is in the rotation, as well as pluto.tv, the roku channel, reutersTv, and Filmrise, all free.
If I could find a service with live sports, I’d switch yesterday.
My TV watching is Braves baseball nightly, all things Gators, and college and pro football.
After that, it’s all Netflix, Amazon, etc.
Finally finished all of dexter..crappy ending.
Just started peaky blinders, slow start, but am hooked now. Wife still doesn't like it tho. Probably give Safe a try next.
Line of Duty on Hulu is really good, my wife and I have been watching this for the last couple of weeks. It has multiple seasons and is from England. It is interesting to see the difference in police procedures and legal system in England.
Edit: and no commercial to even fast forward through.
Just finished watching The Ranch. Wasn't bad. Easy to jump in and out of.
The character development on Peaky is unmatched.
Thomas is maybe my favorite character... or tied with Quint (jaws) ... of any show or movie.
Safe is entertaining but kinda silly.
BROADCHURCH is outstanding.
I can't believe no one has mentioned NARCOS based on Pablo Escobar and the Colombian cocaine war.
I am in the newest season of Arrested Development...so far so good....funny how the plot parallels Trump and the wall building....has anyone watched the newest seasons of Jessica Jones or Luke Cage yet?
