Cancelled Netflix. They ticked me off when they killed reviews. The reviews were funny.

Endeavor
DCI Banks
Rake
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
800 Words
Exhibition on Screen: History's Greatest Artists
Nova
Frontline
American Experience

Some are PBS, some are Acorn TV, you can get Acorn TV through Amazon Prime now. I pay $4.99 a month but I've been getting it since before Prime picked it up. I recommend it.

I really enjoyed Bates Motel until the last couple of episodes. I thought the show was going to end right where the Hitchcock movie starts. Kind of disappointed it didn't.

I tried The Walking Dead a few times but never could get into it.

I've heard a lot about Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul but never have had the desire to give them a shot.

Sons of Anarchy is one of my all time favorites. I've heard a few people say they've been disappointed with The Mayans. Haven't seen it yet.


Man in the High Castle - good

Black Mirror - some episodes have been good.

Battlestar Gallactica - very good.

Electric Dreams - meh

Poldark — Masterpiece Theatre

Good series. I watch it because of Eleanor Tomlinson. If I were 30 years younger... she still wouldn't look at me twice :(

Yes, the ending was a bit disappointing but overall the series was one of my favorites. Vera Farmiga is gorgeous IMO.

I keep watching hoping something positive is going to happen but it just never does. The show brings me down yet I keep watching. We're at a point where there is a helicopter overhead so I am hoping this leads to something major. If not I'm going to stop watching.

I'm so glad I gave Breaking Bad another shot. If you can get to about Episode 6 of Season 1 you will get hooked. Better call Saul is great too.

Absolutely one of my all-time favorites. Right up there with The Sopranos, Deadwood and Rome. I have 7 episodes of The Mayans recorded and I am not finding myself motivated to watch them. I'll soon give that series a fair shake but right now they can sit there in my DVR collecting dust.

I started this one but never got more than a few episodes in. I like to watch series with my wife and she just didn't like this one. So I have to sit alone and watch it (and cry because I am all alone) or just skip it. :lol:

Yes, but overall it is a depressing series to me.

ant wrote:

Ah I forgot about this one! Yes, great series. I never finished it but now that you reminded me of it I should dive back in.

Never heard of it. But with your "meh" I'll give it a pass.

What about Dune? The TV series was awesome. I'm pretty sure it was called Children of Dune. It's been so many years since I watched it and I know there was a few different shows/series/movies. But I believe the good one was Children of Dune.

Being a 60s guy, I like Madmen a lot. The character Don Draper was fascinating, though I 'm not sure exactly why.

Yes, Breaking Bad & Saul are top notch. I'm annoyed that with my current TV tech I can't access the new season of Saul.

The Queen--always an interesting drama about recent history.

The Handmaid's Tale I find to be powerful, painful to watch at times.

How about Halt and Catch Fire? That one I don't hear talked about much. It was a good take on the early tech industry.

A newer one is Maniac, with a slimmed down Jonah Hill and Emma Stone. It's uneven and we stopped watching it.

The Romanovs, by Madmen's Matthew Weiner, is watchable, though also not of consistent quality.

I read "Dune" (the first novel in the series) and thought it was awesome. Read some of the sequels, but they (imho) deteriorated so much I stopped reading. I did see the move version of "Dune" and was very disappointed in it. I don't know anything aoubt any mini-series.
