What was the last tv show you watched?
What was the last tv show you watched?
France 24's "The World This Week" where European journalists discussed what they think about the American election and Donald Trump (it's in English and free online)
KillerText, an Investigation Discovery type show on Oxygen. I can watch pretty much any ID type show once.
The People vs. OJ Simpson
Parks and Rec
Grimm, just finished watching the latest episode. I almost gave up on it last season but I'm liking this season a lot, even if certain elements annoy me.
The Haves & The Have Nots
The Beeb's Happy Valley
S2 of Bosch on Amazon Prime. LA Noir detective story starring Titus Welliver, formerly of Deadwood, as Harry Bosch. There are a couple of former actors from The Wire on the show as well.
Slasher. Loving it.
Luther, as we speak. I'm scared.
The Great British Bake Off.
I know: Mary!
Lucifer. I wish Mr. Morningstar would be more devilish but I like the show a lot.
Damien. Satan is very strong on tv this season.
Watching NCIS' 300th episode just killing time waiting for the People vs. OJ Simpson. Too depressed to watch the Primary results
Watching "The Tudors" now
Bosch, season 2. Don't know what I'm going to do with Amazon Prime for a year, but I'm cray for Bosch.
Star Wars Rebels. Love the show just like I loved its predecessor The Clone Wars. Don't mind it's a kids' show, the themes are quite adult.
Criminal Minds. Shemar was pretty last night.
House of Cards S4E5
The People vs. OJ simpson. Not a regular watcher but I caught a few episodes on FX the other night. I had to laugh at the fashions and decor, they nailed the mid-90s.
Season 3 of the Americans on Amazon prime. Really excellent series.
Daredevil season two. I'm only one episode in since I've got stuff to do but things seem more or less the same as they were on season one. However since Jessica Jones was such a letdown after a great start I'm now fearing I'll end up hating DD as well.
Doctor Blake Mysteries.
R16 I watched the entire season of the Great Australian Bake Off! If you're a Mary what does that make me?
I binged season 2 of Happy Valley on Netflix last night. It had at least one major sour note but the rest was pure bliss.
I watched season 2 of Bosch the night before last.
There are a couple of former actors from The Wire on the show as well.
Titus Welliver is adequate in a role that doesn't have much range and could be played by any number of other actors, but Lance Reddick and the other non-leads make Bosch worth watching.
R30, who did you imagine playing Bosch all these years?
An Original "L&O"---the marathon is on Sundance now.
I watched Scandal last night, but it was boring, so I kept looking at Blue Bloods on ION TV, and not just during the ABC commercials.
R31, I've read that Connelly wanted Billy Burke and he would have been good. There are so many good choices, but I think Clive Owen is one who would have fit the role. I picture Tim Olyphant when I read the books. I definitely imagined someone who was better looking than Titus Welliver and could actually move his face.
If you literally mean "the last show you watched," it would be today's episode of Judge Jewdy.
If you mean the last show I was invested in, it would be Impastor, starring the studly Michael Rosenbaum, and Hardcore Pawn, featuring the Gold family of pawnbrokers in Detroit. Alas, Hardcore Pawn seems to be no more, and I'm waiting for the return of Impastor.
R36, I would probably have liked Billy Burke, too, though I find him too good-looking to play Harry Bosch. Bosch isn't a character who's gotten by on his looks, while Billy Burke is, well, just the opposite of that. I like the suggestion of Clive Owen, and I'm not that familiar with Olyphant. I know who he is, but not much more.
I started reading the books when they first came out, 1992. Harry was supposed to have been born in 1950, so I've always pictured someone age appropriate, e.g., Michael McKeen, Michael O'Keefe, and especially, Robert Clohessy.
R38, I could see O'Keefe and Clohessy but not McKeen. I read a site ages ago that suggested Kyle Chandler. I didn't outright reject that idea and I'm still mulling it one over in my mind along with Kevin Bacon.
The Ed Sullivan Show.
My television broke in 1966 and I'm waiting for them to perfect color before buying a new one.
R39, when did you start reading Michael Connelly's books?
Survivor on Wednesday.
Happy Valley. Series 2. I watched it on BBC, thought it's on Netflix now.
I also watched some awfully slow Icelandic crime series called Trapped. Very unsatisfying ending.
Soon after it was published I had a transatlantic flight and bought a few paperbacks to fill the time. Among them was Black Echo, and I was hooked.
How about you?
R47 was directed at R41. Sorry.
You, Me & The Apocalypse
Daredevil, just getting into Season 2.
Marathon of "Last Tango in Hallifax" - seasons 1-3. I read that this year we will only get a 2-hour Christmas episode, then the 4th season (to air in 2017 or 2018) will likely be the last.
Sundance's HAP and LEONARD starring James Purefoy and Michael K. Williams.
Blue Bloods. Is Will Estes (single, age 37, looks 27) a pole smoker?
A hole poker, r56.
Gilligan's Island. The episode with the radioactive seeds. Moi, j'adore Mrs. Howell!
Peeps vs OJ
Jesus Christ, i think we're reaching total saturation: i love tv shows but nowadays there's just too much offer... it's pretty impossible to keep in touch. I've never heard of at least 30% of the shows you're talking about. I'm sure i'm missing out on a lot of good stuff, and it makes me sad. Anyway, I'm hooked on American Crime Story and The Americans. Great stuff!
r47, I think it was Nine Dragons, much of which took place in Hong Kong. I remember thinking Eleanor was Chinese until I read some more of the Bosch books.
The Real O'Neals
Banshee. I've watched episodes here and there but never got committed. For some reason I almost hated the show at first but there's something fascinating about it. Season 4 just premiered and it will be the last apparently. I loved the premiere and will absolutely watch rest of the season.
Just finished watching season two of The Knick. I only watched watched the pilot from season one when it first aired but I had no problems getting in when I started watching season two last week. This is a gorgeous show. Beautifully made and so nicely balanced.
I'm glad Steven Soderberg made the move to television. I never really liked his films but he really shines here. He apparently wants to do six seasons of The Knick and talked about making the show in two season blocks, which means we're possibly going to get something different next fall.
This morning - The Today Show. Rossen Reports did a story about how much liquid beverage you actually get in a Starbucks Grande Latte. Turns out, of the 5 or 6 stores he went to, none gave the advertised (?) amount of 16 ozs. Two were close but the others were waaay under; one was at about 12 ozs. They reached out to Starbucks which gave their usual crap response and added, "if you're not happy with your beverage, we'd be more than happy to serve you a new one."
Last night - Quantico but I fell asleep before the episode ended.
Mr. Robot. I watched the whole thing this weekend. My brain still hurts.
The season finale of The Walking Dead and also Lucifer and the season finale of 11.22.63. Enjoyed all of them.
Lucifer is a fucking sexy bastard.
Scandal. I keep waiting for it to jump something other than the shark
ITV's Marcella. Weird/interesting in that Brit sort of way.
NBC's new show GAME OF SILENCE. It didn't suck.
Oh, and then MARTHA BAKES on PBS. I am loving this show.
Last night I watched the Merv Griffin Show in GetTV, with guests Tallulah Bankhead and Willie Mays.
So many laughs, and so good to see an intelligent raconteur such as Miss Bankhead in full throttle.
Peaky Blinders. Amazing show!
Outlander Love it and I'm a damn frau either.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Shark Tank. Very interesting show for the self employed.
Oh, I mean, 'I am Cait'.
Blue Bloods. I love Will Estes. How come his character never has sex with anyone? And where does he live?
Last night, they gave "48th and Columbus" and "41st and Amsterdam" as locations, which every New Yorker knows are *not* locations. Below 59th Street, Columbus is called 9th Avenue, and Amsterdam is 10th. And this show is shot in NY. Do the writers live in LA and have never been to NY?
Game Of Thrones. I finally got a high-end HD TV and I've been binging all week.
Fear The Walking Dead
House Hunter International (Brussels)
Pretty Little Liars
Dancing with the Stars. You'd have thought that poor Kim Fields lost a relative; she was SO upset.
Fear The Walking Dead
The first few minutes of "Grease Live." I shut it off when I saw Aaron Tveit and how completely wrong he was for the part.
R85, how big? Don't you love it? I got mine in 2010, and went from a non-TV person to a TV person. Mine is 48". I can't accommodate a larger screen without a rehab of my house.
Shahs of Sunset
The Returned (A&E) - canceled.
Rectify - unfortunately, cancelled after this season.
Oh, and Nashville...canceled.
Last night I watched the 3-hour Notre Dame-produced documentary on PBS about the 1916 Irish Rebellion, narrated by Liam Neeson. I had planned to watch Wallander but the show about Ireland was too interesting to leave.
Friday night's episode of Emmerdale.
Fear The Walking Dead, going to watch Talking Dead after some lawn chores.
Stranger Things on Netflix.
PREACHER DVR binger, bitches. Can't binge and push reverse enough. Masculine and beautiful DOMINIC COOPER. Oh..he can act too... Wasn't his acting I just sat through 4 hrs watching. What a tight little British Bubble preacher man is working. He's packing some serious heat, and it sure ain't the gun....
University Challenge s46e04
Homeland. I've watched seasons 2-4 in the last week or so, and am now on season 5.
NASA's Unexplained Files.
Watch What Happens Live with guests Amy Sidaris and Adrian Grenier
Golden Girls (rerun, of course).
Dr. Phil. Oh the shame.
Peaky Blinders. Why isn't it better known? So good!
Vikings (on HULU).
Fatmagul (Turkish Series)
Your Show of Shows. That Imogene Coca is a hoot.
You're the Worst - the 2nd season was amazing. Chris Geere is sexy and Aya Cash deserves an Emmy.
3rd season starts at the end of the month.
Brooklyn Nine Nine
Deep Water, a new Australian drama about a series of gay-bash killings. I liked the pilot and just download the 2nd ep. It's on the download sites currently for anyone interested. A female cop leads the way while everyone else thinks it was the boyfriend.
Skam (Norwegian show).
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ep 2, catching up on it.
Teen Wolf. And I felt like a pedo although I'm only in my late 20s.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (all caught up)
R127, I miss the old theme song.
The Real O'Neals
I don't mind the new one, I think they wanted a new short one to lesson the odds of people changing the channel. It's probably doomed. I've liked about everything except Josh's song in 2, which might've been purposely bad, but we still had to hear it. Like some shitty band the Saved By The Bell kids put together.
MSNBC's Election Night coverage. I shut it off around 11pm when we were already doomed, and frankly am not interested in how America's obituary winds down.
"Live with Kelly" this morning. She and Ryan Seacrest made Pumpkin Ricotta cake.
What's My Line on Buzzr.
An episode from the second season of QI on Acorn.
Dicte - Season 3 (on Netflix). Great Danish show.
The last ep ("fall finale") of HTGAWM, just to see if Connor or Oliver died.
Adam Ruins Everything.
R146, how is the gay storyline on Conviction, has anything new happened?
I like Outlander too and Poldark and no, not a frau. But the best series on is an Australian one, A PLACE TO CALL HOME. Some PBS stations show it; ACORN has it. Great writing and some oof the best acting you will ever see PLUS some very handsome men and one of the storylines is about a gay young man...set in 1952, so you can imagine what he went through. Try it.
The Sonny and Cher Show on Get TV.
It was the premiere episode with guest star Jimmy Durante,
Boy, did it blow.
Upstairs, Downstairs. My tele has been on the blink so I'm a bit behind in the episodes but I hear there are plans for Lady Marjorie to travel to New York and then on to Canada to visit that train- wreck, Elizabeth, hopefully to drum some sense into that impudent, directionless disappointment of a daughter.
Wife Swap. It's so reassuring that pretty much everyone is crazy, and I distance myself from my fearful thoughts.
SHOW ME A HERO.
A Lifetime rerun of Grey's Anatomy on DVR, watched this morning while having breakfast. Will watch another with dinner. There was some kind of GA marathon yesterday. Love that show only up until Christina leaves. Then it fell flat, IMO.
There are almost no current shows on the air that appeal to me, once in a while believe it or not that Mom show because I love the actress who plays the younger woman's mother. I also still watch SVU but it's so boring I usually ff most of it. I just can't give up the last L&O show on the air. Even if I don't really watch I must record.
Timeless. I sort of enjoy the show but the story is pretty tedious. I'm always wondering whether to stop watching it but part of me enjoys the time travel aspect quite a lot.
R146, it's barely there.
R147, it's barely there.
Conviction will be over before they resolve that situation.
Maybe if it were more of an ensemble than a Hayley Atwell starrer, it would have drawn more of an audience. Her "Me! Me! Me!" antics are the only thing I don't like about the show. I wish they hadn't hired the First Daughter, and gone with whichever Ashmore was supposed to get the job. He's like a ghost on this show, and I'd so much rather he were the center of attention (particularly if he and Eddie Cahill were having a thing).
I don't watch TV and do not own a set
How VERY nice for you, R161.
2 broke girls. Mary!
The Christmas episode of Charles in Charge with pre-Golden Girls Rue McClanahan guest starring.
Martha Bakes: holiday breads
Rudolph with my niece and nephew. Now, was the dentist elf gay? The fat snowman narrator a gay bear? Or am I reading too much into this?
Grace Under Fire
No TV. 6 miles nearest neighbor.
3%. The Brazilian cast is hot.
The Graham Norton Show
Anne of Green Gables, 1985 Colleen Dewhurst version.
This Is Us. Sterling took his shirt off. Milo stayed dressed, and Justin wore a tank top.
Taboo. Just to watch Tom Hardy smolder and brood.
It's Howdy Doody Time, 1951 or 52. I was quite young but I didn't like the violence and wrote off watching TV after that. Someone must have beat up Clarabell pretty bad because he couldn't speak and only honked his horn when he attempted to communicate. What a horror.
Top Chef: Charleston
The OA. Not TV, but close enough. I'm considering rewatching The Wire. I haven't watched it in years, and it's so damn good, I figure, why not?
A DVR of an old Law & Order (the original one with my beloved Jerry Orbach). I'm watching it right now as I type.
Happy Valley s2. So good.
The Real O'Neals
Jane the Virgin
I haven't found a tv show that I could get into since last season's House of Cards
Last Tango in Halifax
Taboo. Tom Hardy inspires a stirring in my loins. Even when he's all dirty 'n stuff....
Gotham and Lucie double feature
Goddammit LUCIFER that is.
I watched a few episodes of Season 1 of Baskets. Well I commend the originality, writing and performances.
HOWEVER, this is one of those shows where the main character (s) is a nasty misanthrope. It's like Portlandia. Many other shows. Curb your enthusiasm. Crazy ex. etc. TRANSPARENT in a major way.
After a while, I don't want to spend time with these awful characters.
Lip Sync Battle, featuring Tim Tebow doing Sam Hunt's "Take Your Time." Apparently, Tim has a mancrush on Sam. Tebow does next to nothing for me, but I would watch that hookup.
Love Is All Around MTM special.
Had a mini-marathon and finally got caught up with Poldark. Poor stupid Elizabeth, what will she ruin for herself next?
Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman
Riverdale. And I really liked it.
I'm binging on MTM shows.
Riverdale here, too. Shockingly decent.
I know. I wasn't expecting it to be so good. I only watched because someone posted that Moose is gay, which ended up being storyline E, if that.
The Great British Baking Show Masterclass
Silly question. The Golen Girls marathon.
America's Next Top Model
I'm binge-watching Goliath with Billy Bob Thornton. I'm liking it a little less as it goes along, but I'll probably hang in until the end.
Schitt's Creek, the first episode on Netflix. Yesterday. I'm on the fence as to whether to continue. Really good performances but such a twee fish out of water premise and just so-so writing.
The Young Pope.
What a snooze.
Lawless Oceans on Nat Geo.
Grantchester, S2E1. James Norton is my TV boyfriend.
Taboo, S1E4. I was going to give up on it, but then Tom Hollander showed up. He's never not good. Curse you, show...
Code Black. Someone died.
Top Chef: Charleston. Now with Hat Ladies.
The Mary Tyler Moore Show episode with Mary taking pills
Gimme A Break! with Whitney Houston in a non-singing role
The Phil Donahue Show where Lucille Ball discusses LucyMAME, among other things
Bunch of old promos and logos on YouTube
Enlightened. Laura Dern Brilliant In It! Boss. Underrated Kelsey Grammar Cancelled Show. The Americans. VERY Entertaining. And the for the most CRIMINAL tv show cancellations of all of modern time;
STALKER starring Dylan McDermott. Loved the content and writing.
Speaking of Dylan YUM YUM McDermott. Hostages was another good last tv show that I watched. Added bonus, Toni Collette was in it too!
Jane The Virgin
Game of Thrones
"8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown" (10 Feb 2017).
The love boat. Hey it had Rue McCanahan, Don Wells, AND Gilian Anderson as well as a slew of other yester year celebs.
R235 Should read DAWN Wells
The Texaco Hour with Milton Burl in 1950.
Homeland -- this Sunday's new episode
The Tunnel/Sabotage. Watched all 8 episodes over two days.
Grace and Frankie s3. I kept binging to see Peter Gallagher and he's only on the last 2 episodes.
The penultimate episode of "Big Little Lies." The finale is on tonight.
Long Island Medium
13 Reasons Why
The Home Fires. Season 2 Episode 1 on tonight.
"Call the Midwife." 2016 Christmas special, then Season 6 premiere.
Figure Skating World Championships.
Finale of "Big Little Lies."
"American Crime." and "Feud."
Call The Midwife
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Chicago Justice. I'm not liking is as much as the other three (Med is my favorite because of Dr. Will Halstead).
The Amazing Race. I haven't watched it in *years*. It hasn't changed one bit.
Trisha's Southern Kitchen. She had some black queen backup singer on cooking with her.
Currently bingewatching Penny Dreadful and thinking about Reeve Carney topping Josh Harnett and him *enjoying itttttt.* (possessed Vanessa Ives voice)
Scandal. This week's episode was REALLY awful. Torture porn and a ridiculous plot.
13 Reasons Why on Netflix. It drags during the first few episodes but picks up after a while. It should've been 8 episodes.
Planet Earth II: Cities.
Endeavour, the Morse that's set in Oxford in the sixties.
Is Endeavour starting a new US season, R265?
Brooklyn Nine Nine
Better Call Saul and Talking Saul
Same here, r269. I hope the Saul thread takes off; it would be nice to discuss developments and theories with my fellow DLers!
Me too! I LOVE BETTER CALL SAUL! Acting, writing and musical choices are all top notch. Bob Odenkirk is fantastic, as is Michael McKean.
Imposters. I'd never even heard about it until I read about it here on the DL. Thanks, Team DL! (Greatest Show Ever? No, but the eye candy is tasty.)
I enjoyed IMPOSTERS too. It was well done for a Bravo show. I hope they bring it back for another season.
Home Fires on PBS (which my brain always reads as Home Fries).
Series finale of Girls
The View, and the ladies were delighted about Bill O's imminent demise!
Billions and Better Call Saul.
Morning Joe. R277 I really enjoyed Breaking Bad, I need to try Better Call Saul.
Watched Season 3, Episode 2 of "Better Call Saul" last night. I'm loving it even more than "Breaking Bad".
FARGO's season 3 premiere. Ewan MacGregor in a dual role is unbelievable already. This show gets better and better.
The Young Montalbano - that guy is so hot!
Better Call Saul
Last week's British Masterchef episodes.
If you include news programming then last night's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell.
Bosch (S2) - liking it.
Channel 4's No Offence. Both seasons over 3 days. Bloody brilliant!!
A couple of season 1 episodes of The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Bosch, season 3. Best one yet.
Wendy! She's on in NYC at 10 am and 4 pm. I've a small tv in the office, try to see her.
Grace and Frankie. I'm up through ep. 10 of season 3.
R298 We asked what TV show you WATCHED, not which one you were featured on.
Skins. I started a thread but you bitches didnt couldnt be bothered.
What channel is "Skins" on? I've never seen it.
If you're in the US its on Netflix.
Oh, I gave up on Netflix. I may have watched an ep or two of Skins, though. Not enough for me to post about it on your thread. Thanks, though.
Some renovation show with a goofy guy with big dick face. He did gay porn under the name of Beau Flexxx
Outsourced. From 2010, only lasted one season, but it's really cool and funny.
John Oliver, then Veep.
"House Hunters International:" Cute gay couple, who worked in television production in Atlanta, wanted to buy a vacation home/future retirement home in Reykjavik, Iceland. They were complete opposites, which made them both irritating and charming. Realtor looked mildly annoyed. It's too bad Adrian Leeds does not freelance around the globe!
I'm currently watching Chicago Justice. I don't like it as much as the other Chicagos.
Better Call Saul, last night.
Jane the Virgin
Season finale of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine."
Fresh off the Boat
The Amazing Race
King Charles III
The Mary Tyler Moore Show -- S1, "The Snow Must Go On."
Joanne Froggat's depressing tv movie about a serial killer. She's a good actress, but this movie was shit.
I've been binge-ing "Poirot" episodes on Netflix.
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Has Bruce Wayne grown pubic hair yet, R332?
Space's Deepest Secrets
Victorian Slum House
THE HANDMAID'S TALE
Line of Duty, S1, E4
The Amazing Race finale.
The Graham Norton Show
Food Network Star
Better Call Saul
Father Knows Best
House of Cards.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
I'm watching the last season of ER on DVD to catch Julian Morris in 7 or 8 episodes as Dr. Andrew Wade. The last three episodes have been Julian-less.
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
Not exactly a show, but the US Mens National soccer team v. Trinidad-Tobago. (We won.)
Father Brown. (Netflixing Season 1.)
RuPaul. And it is PATHETIC. Are all the good queen already used?
The Tony Awards, duh.
I'm bingeing on RECTIFY.
The Tony Awards
The Frasier episode where Niles and Frasier act condescending and piss Martin off
R359, you doily.
Better Call Saul.
"The Buddha" on PBS -- watching now.
The Great British Baking Show
Inspector George Gently
Twin Peaks The Return. I can't watch network stuff anymore, the commercials seem to have more airtime than the show.
Better Call Saul and still watching. To be savored like fine wine. A little slow paced but patience is rewarded with big payoffs.
Mama's Family marathon
Grantchester. Because James Norton is my TV Boyfriend.
American Gods season finale. Season 2 cannot air soon enough.
I finished watching RECTIFY last night. Excellent program. All four seasons are available on Netflix.
Agreed on Rectify, R372. It will stick with you for a good while after, too. I cannot get anyone else to watch it, though. Just explaining the basic premise puts them off. I don't dare say that the storytelling takes its sweet time. Still, tell everyone you know!
Househunters International. I don't have cable so I only watch TV when I'm on the road in a hotel room. Seems like it's Househunters Friggin International 24/7.
The L Word for the 4th time
Tavis Smiley, that lovely man.
I'm canceling cable in favor of our local theater's "Film Society Club." Cheaper and more entertaining with excellent selections several times a week. Always a familiar and enthusiastic crowd. I never feel alone gping by myself. There's booze and food if I want. Still cheaper than monthly cable.
I'm bored to death with TV. News has become entertainment at this point.
I've gone without TV before. Theater movies take on a whole new viewing experience. The run of the mill movies rarely interest me. Thank goodness for the Club movies.
I also read more when TV isn't my instant babysitter.
Part 1 of The Widower on PBS, a 3-part series based on a true story. It was decent, I'll definitely watch the rest.
So You Think You Can Dance (New York auditions)
an episode of the latest season of Suits you can watch on Netflix
Southern at Heart rerun on Food Network.
13 Reasons Why
I can't stop rewatching the last episode of Twin Peaks. I wish I still smoked pot.
Prime Suspect: Tennison
Bewitched tv show on DVD
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
I'm slogging through The Fall, with Jamie Dornan. Wish they'd let him go dongful.
Orphan Black. I still think Tatiana Maslany is brilliant, but the plot has gone completely off the rails (and did a couple of seasons ago). I'm only watching this final season to be a completist.
Tatiana is a brilliant actress on par with Davis, Hepburn, and beloved Dame Maggie. Easily the best actress on TV...nobody is even close. I loved her small role in Woman in Gold. I hope her career is full of classy roles and Oscars and Emmys. God, she is a fantastic actress. I am lost this season.
Grantchester, for the pretty that is James Norton.
Will. I think I'm the only person watching it. Cute lead, nice production, but it's just roughed up "Shakespeare In Love." And apparently Elizabethan actors could learn all their lines and blocking and put on the first production of "Two Gentlemen of Verona" in the span of a couple of hours. Sure.
Just finished the second season of You're the Worst.
I'm binge-watching season 5 of Major Crimes.
Hooten and The Lady on the CW. It's SO bad you can't take eyes off it. (But I keep watching, waiting for the adorable Jonathan Bailey to show up.)
So You Think You Can Dance
Grantchester. Episode on 7/24 in the US was maybe the best one yet. Gypsies, bitchy housekeepers, bigamists, annoying divorcee', and hot Sydney with daddy Geordie. What more could you want?
"Hot Sidney..." in a tight open-necked henley shirt. The show knows its audience.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I'm currently watching Midsomer Murders.
Game of Thrones, of course.
R373, no kidding, . Loved the book, so I subscribed to Starz just to see American Gods. Watched the first episode, and was bored out of my mind. Watching episode 2 now to see if it gets any better. I might binge-watch anyway because the book has a hell of an ending, hope the series doesn't screw that up.
I'm watching Wallander.
W1A. Hilariously cringey. Given the opportunity I would strangle the character of Siobhan. She's worse than she was in Twenty Twelve, and that's saying something. (Well done to the actress, though.)
Hollywood Game Night
Catching up on The Good Place.
The Handmaid's Tale.
I'm rewatching HBO's Rome (2005). I wish it was more than 2 seasons. What a great show!
Loved Rome. TOO expensive to produce and dumb viewers did not get it.
I enjoyed Rome, too, back in the day. And it drove me to watch I, Claudius (again...). If you haven't seen it, make a point of watching I, Claudius. The production values are wretched, but the screenplay and the acting are still fantastic.
Game of Thrones - Season 7
AHS - Season 4
Watching the Season 7 finale of GOT for the 5th time.
Pretty Little Liars - Season 4
I'm watching The Walking Dead It's really boring and I'm in season 1!
John Oliver. The free model train at the very end was delightful and made up for the grim Arpaio segment that preceded it.
Binged S2 of The Path.
The Outlander season 2 finale -- so I can now watch the season 3 premiere without wondering what I'd forgotten between seasons.
Binged Top of The Lake: China Girl.
Dragging my heels on finishing Twin Peaks S3.
PBS NOVA: Death Dive to Saturn.
Goodbye, little star.
The Vietnam War, part 1.
Season premiere of "American Housewife."
American Horror Story: Cult
"Rosehaven." Very funny comedy set in Tasmania. If you liked "Gavin and Stacey" you'll probably like this one. Currently on Sundance in the US.
Last night's Designated Survivor. I still don't know if I like this show. I know I didn't miss it this summer. I like Kiefer, though. I always have. I also like Jake Epstein, the guy who plays Maggie's techbro assistant, Chuck.
I've seen a couple of the episodes of Queers on BBC America. Why is DL not discussing this -- it's got gay themes, gay writers and gay actors. (Other than BBCA did no advertising for the series, apparently.)
"This Is Us."
Queers on BBC America
The segment with Ben Whishaw was linked to, and I've seen it discussed at least twice in the past couple of months.
Jack Whitehall's Travels With My Father on Netflix.
Ten Days In the Valley
The Good Doctor. I like Freddie Highmore. I wonder at least a couple of times per episode whether I'd like the show if they'd cast an ugly actor.
Me, Myself and I
RuPaul's Drag Race, S8 Also watching Riverdale S1, Victoria S2, and Star Trek Discovery S1. That is all - otherwise YouTube cat videos.
The Good Doctor
The Menendez Murders, at least partially because I find Gus Halper (Erik) so damned pretty. I wonder if he's ever played, or been approached about playing, John-John.
I love Lucy
Last night - both Rachel Maddow & The Daily Show
This morning - Leah Remini
This Is Us. This was the first episode (10-17-17) I actually really liked.
Will and Grace. I'm really just watching it for Megan Mullally. Truly.
The Good Place. I actually laughed out loud several times (something I rarely do.) And Ted Danson is a national treasure.
That '70s Show reruns. 8 per night, but I don't see them all. I fall asleep.
Lethal Weapon. Too bad the ratings are not that great since I love the show.
She Loves Me on PBS's Great Performances
She Loves Me on PBS's Great Performances
I don't know about the performances per se, but I didn't think there was anything great about the play.
The Durrells in Corfu
The Expanse. Tonight I'm watching new season episodes of Super Store. Middlebrow (low brow?) Comfort TV.
I think the weather report, September 19th, 2017.
Then the lights went out,
Please Like Me on Hulu. On the final episode of the third season. I'm sad the show isn't returning for a fifth but perhaps it's for the best.
Fresh Off the Boat
Just burned through all 6 hours of Costner's HATFIELDS & MCCOYS in one day.
It's old hat now (came out over 5 years ago on the damn History Channel) and it got critically torn apart on release, but in retrospect it's enormously captivating for a long pulpy period piece. It's not art and it's not even a great dramatic tale - pure silly soap-opera if you think too hard - but it's a Costner Western so it doesn't have to be. I was gasping, grinning, biting my fingers and leaning forward in my seat throughout the series and as a viewer I am typically very hard to please. I'll probably watch it at least once more through on another rainy weekend, or even get myself the Bluray just for the gorgeous cinematography.
Also, those young Hatfield brothers sure were nice to look at in the Virginia sunlight. And Mare Winningham's acting is a dream.
The Good Doctor? 'Cause of how much I love it when a lead character tries to sound autistic by way of upspeaking?
Law & Order: True Crime
Christopher Kimball's Milk Street, the Mexican cuisine episode. He's found a minion who also doesn't like spicy food. Great...
R487 What did you think of Chef Matthew (I think he was on that episode)? He pinged big-time to me.
R488: Matthew wasn't on that episode, but he pings like a nuclear submarine.
Stranger Things 2
r481 I love that show. I think it’s the best gay-themed show in years.
Jane The Virgin.
The Path on Hulu. Binged about 6 episodes last night
Ed Sullivan on Decades.
Poldark and the collection. Great PBS. Fare last night. Hot shirtless guys on both, censored nudity on the Collection
"I Married Joan"
The Great British Baking Show
R497 I find Poldark so incredibly boring, but can all those viewers be wrong? What am I missing or failing to appreciate, here?
I was told before 'Poldark' started that it would be akin to 'Sharpe' (which I love) but for me the former just doesn't compare. Perhaps that's why I can't get into it.
Twilight Zone's "A Game of Pool" with Jack Klugman and Jonathan Winters
I also find Poldark surprisingly dull, R500. (I'd enjoyed the 70s version, if memory serves.) I can't tell if it's the script or the direction (each scene lasts about 30 seconds; people are always meeting by sheer coincidence on lonely, windswept paths and beaches; characters apparently fly to and from houses that are miles apart, they get there so quickly; etc.) That said, the show looks spectacular, both in the natural scenery of Cornwall and several of the male actors. If those actors just rode around on horseback with their shirts open to the navel surely everyone would be happy. (Poldark Drinking Game: Drink a shot each time someone rides or walks along a windy cliff, beach or moor. You'll be hammered by the midway point.)
Father Brown > The Durrells of Corfu > Poldark > The Collection.
The acting is weak on this version of Poldark. The original Geo Warleggen was mean but he had a couple of surprising good points (which I forget now, but he wasn't a cardboard villain). This one is petulant.
Yes ^ all the 30 second scenes and constant meetings. Last night, Morwenna sent to her mother's, a minute later she is back.
Madam Secretary. How I wish Tim Daly's character and his Russian counterspy would fall in love.
The first episode of the new season of W1A on Netflix. I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud at these horrible corporate yes men (and women).
Weinstein: The Horror Story
I hate TV but I saw a few clips of 90 Day Fiancee and I got really intrigued by this cute Moroccan guy Azan.
Law & Order: True Crime. Penultimate episode.
Million Dollar Listing LA
Was it the elusive J.Renner episode R513?
No, it's the first episode in season 9.
The Walking Dead.
Midsomer Murders. Just starting the episodes with the new Barnaby.
Rich Kids of Beverly Hills
Case, Trapped - both excellent Icelandic crime dramas (Netflix)
The Break (La Trêve) - a really good Belgian crime show (Netflix)
The Bridge S1, the good, Swedish/Danish version, not that lame ass US version - also Netflix
Yes, I am on a Scandi noir crime drama kick, as you can tell.
That '70s Show
bingeing mad men on flix.....on the last season......holy shit! it's good. pulled me in anyway.
don't have cable so never got to see anyone of it.....no fx, no amc, no anything.....
man, don draper has.......conflicts.
I binge-watched all eight episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Not bad.
The Crown - Season 1 - Episodes 1 & 2
Will & Grace. I may have to give up this reboot. The Christmas episode was... Not Good. (And Megan M's Irish accent was worse!)
"Marcella" - when British television tries to create a dark Nordic thriller and does a pretty good job of it. Not that surprising since the show was written by the Swede who created "The Bridge". I really liked Anna Friel in it.
Le Bureau des Legendes - brilliant!
Netflix show called Dark. Wasn't bad. Takes place in Germany and has time travel and missing kids and such. Also has Many characters so you have to pay attention. I give it 7.5 out of 10
And I also just started. parks and Recreation. I wanted something easy and funny to watch and so far it's a solid choice. Chris Pratt's Andy makes the funniest reaction faces.
The Gay Falcon.
Fearless on Amazon Prime.
Red Oaks on Amazon Prime. Tom Hollandesque star Craig Roberts could not be one bit more adorable as David Meyers; Richard Kind is particularly good as David's father, Sam.
"Doctor Foster." One of the best "scorned woman exacts revenge" things I've seen. The ending was kind of heartbreaking, though. It took me a couple of episodes to figure out where I'd seen Suranne Jones before. It occurred to me that she was on Coronation Street some 10-15 years ago. I had no idea she was such a good actress.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
so utterly fucking boring and slow
"Witnesses" (Les Témoins), a French dark crime drama, in the vein of Nordic noir. I was surprised how good it was: often unsettling, gripping, and really well acted. Season 2 is *very* sinister. It's on Netflix.
The Meyerowitz Stories, with Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Dustin Hoffman. On Netflix, so it's TV.
Dean Martin's Celebrity Roast of Bette Davis
Leave it to Beaver- "Ward, I'm worried about the beaver!"
Massive Moves. It featured a gay couple, they were moving their houseboat in Vancouver.
GAME OF THRONES. HBO is running marathons.
Stranger Things 2, episode 3. Finished The Crown last week. Will take a deep breath and watch Black Mirror once I've finished ST2.
Will & Grace. I wish it was... better.
How I Met Your Mother
I'm watching the first season
LA to Vegas, mindless comedy about the crew and travellers of a discount airline, led by a Ron-Burgundy-esque Captain Dave (Dylan McDermott). Love Bernard the sassy stew.
Manhunt: the Unabomber story (Netflix)
Gunpowder (ep. 1), which has been sitting on my DVR for a bit. How is Kit Harington a star? He has one expression: glum pout.
Vera (Season 8) on Acorn TV
Watched episode 1 of The Alienist yesterday
Mannix on MeTV last night.
The Lead with Jake Tapper
Just watched seasons one and two of The Path on Hulu and am watching season three episodes as there are released. It’s about a new agey cult. First two seasons were pretty great but seriously jumping the shark but I’ll keep watching because of my crush on Mr. Hugh Dancy.
Just watching Hotel Beau Séjour, a Belgian crime drama on Netflix. Apparently, Belgium is the new Scandinavia - some great stuff coming from there. I'm not going to spoil it for those who want to watch it but, again, it's a pretty dark crime show with one supernatural twist which doesn't distract from the main murder mystery.
Great News (NBC)
RHONJ Reunion Part II. Best installment from a subpar season.
R560 That's what got me into it in the first place but I haven't started Season 3 yet. Is it worth watching?
Scandal. Just waiting for the finale to see who kills whom.
It’s a very different show in Season 3. The first 10 minutes of the first episode have two “you’ve gotta be kidding me” violent events. The Meyerists despite being nearly broke in season two are now inexplicably flush with funds to build a modern new HQ in Brooklyn and less than a year has gone by (going by the age of Cal’s kid). And then there is the S&M. It’s a crazy soap now where I think it was a more thoughtful show before.
Thanks R560. At least I know what I'm in for,
Big Bash League.
Or if cricket doesn't count, then, Rage, last night.
Or if music clips don't count, then, Never Mind The Bollocks.
Ahem...I mean "Buzzcocks". Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
"Black Museum," the final episode of the latest season of Black Mirror.
The Graham Norton Show
The Aussie hospital drama ALL SAINTS on HULU.
Just finished all of Season 2 of "The Crown."
Chicago PD. Why Patrick Flueger isn't in more scenes with his shirt off continues to astonish me.
The Amazing Race (which less amazing than it used to be). SPOILER: A pity the gay team was eliminated.
"Penelope Keith At Her Majesty's Service," the Northern Ireland episode.
Scandal - Cyrus is a beast when he's bad!
Will & Grace. Another episode with adorable pocket gay Ryan Pinkston.
Jane the Virgin -- now with an S&M sequence!
Criminal Minds. This was actually a gay episode. It was a good one, the conversion camp was shut down.
Season 3 of Curb Your Enthusiasm. I love Larry, he's such a dick.
I'm watching BBC documentaries on YouTube. Love history and mostly shows about the history of Britain that were originally aired on TV.
Today, I'm watching a MAN's program! Season 11 episodes of Mythbusters interspersed with the Super Bowl Halftime. I like my TV violence restricted to minor explosions, and not the tribal kind, thank you.
2 Dope Queens
The Resident - not as bad as I thought it would be, not St Elsewhere or House either.
The Great British Baking Show (re-watching old seasons on PBS.)
The Resident - not as bad as I thought it would be, not St Elsewhere or House either.
I don't want it, or any show, to be House.
Saw This is Us for the first time after the SB. Was better than I thought it'd be. Have to catch up on it this summer.
Crazy Ex Girlfriend
The Graham Norton Show with Helen Mirren, Liam Neeson and Jamie Dornan.
That would be one hell of a hot 3 way (not Norton) R597. I think Neeson and Mirren actually were together at one time.
She said as much on the show, R598. Two more posts and we'll need a Last TV Show You Watched, Part II.
Just caught up on the last episode of Scandal I missed. Great last season.
And 600 posts.
