Title: What TV Shows Are you Watching?
Post by: Rev. Powell on January 25, 2022, 09:03:19 AM
Seems like we used to have a thread like this. If not, we should. What are you watching (new or old, broadcast or streaming)?

I just started Netflix's "Archive 81" last night. Horror series about a man restoring old fired-samaged videotapes from the early 90s that hide... something (occult, I assume). A dual plot, as the hero has his own issues to deal with, and we watch the older story unfold videotape by videotape. A promising start.

Resident Alien.  Based on the comic book series.   They are doing a decent job of it.  Alan Tudyk is good.  Just odd  enough.

Just finished season 15 of Supernatural and I am currently working my way through Sapphire & Steel as well as The Ghosts of Motley Hall.

Yaaaaaaay! One of my all-time favorite shows growing up, Picket Fences, is on Hulu!

I just finished DEXTER: NEW BLOOD which I really enjoyed - a much better send-off for Dexter than the original series gave him.

And a very twisty Showtime series called YELLOWJACKETS which was very dark and compelling!

And my wife and I are enjoying THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT.

Peaky Blinders
Riverdale
Walking Dead
911

Blinders I just started on Netflix. The other 3 are airing on tv and watch as they air.

Stranger Things starts in May so I'll resume that.

Finished "Archive 81" (good, not great), and I'm back to finishing up the entire "Seinfeld" run (I'm on Season 7), finishing the last season of "12 Monkeys," and I need to watch the final two episodes of "The Mighty Boosh."

Having finished "The Mighty Boosh," I turned to a series I've been meaning to watch for decades: 1967-1968's "The Prisoner." It combines two things I love: Swinging 60s style (lava lamps EVERYWHERE) and Kafkaesque existential parables.

I put 'V The Final Battle' on hold, until I found a good reason to resume the watching. Yes, even Jane Badler is not enough reason, at the moment, to keep watching the series.
So, I think I'm going to restart watching the season 2 of Family Guy. I don't know how far I will go through this.

Dad always talked about The Prisoner but I never saw it until 2020: it freaked me out that a series which was made the year I was born could almost predict the future so well. I think Patrick McGoohan saw the future coming and he didn't like what he saw coming  :buggedout:

Update:

I put all the others on pause, and finished up:

"Undone," Season 2 - Amazon Prime, rotoscoped time-travel drama, recommended (watch the 1st season first)
"Russian Doll" Season 2 - Netflix, Natasha Lyonne sarcastic hard-drinking NYC Jewish anti-heroine time-travel comedy, recommended (watch the 1st season first)

And I started a sci-fi drama called "Night Sky" with J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek as an old couple hiding a room in their basement that can teleport them to another planet. Only two episodes in but it's promising so far. I have an early access screener, it actually debuts on May 20, but so far I would recommend it if they don't screw it up.

I bought the original series last month and am slowly making my way through it

it aged nicely

So having completed "Night Sky" I would recommend it. However, I also must warn that a Facebook friend found it boring, even though he usually likes arthouse stuff. There is a lot of action in the finale, which leaves a lot of loose ends for a second season---if it gets renewed.

Also, I'm binging "Schitt's Creek" irregularly when I visit my parents. Best sitcom of recent times IMO.

Last night's mid-season finale of Better Call Saul was powerful TV but utterly horribly awfully depressing, even by the standards of a show that is almost always utterly horribly awfully depressing, as was its parent series.

I was given the entire TV series of Beetlejuice on DVD as a late birthday present, so watching that right now.

I'm also occasionally working my way through the 60s "Batman." One of the greatest TV shows ever!

Obi Wan Lenobi

Itís ok. Starts a bit slow, but it picks up around the 3rd episode. Last two I watched felt a bit too much like remakes of earlier Star Wars films, but they still had a few good moments. Probablyíll watch the last one tomorrow.

Finished 12 MONKEYS. Enjoyed it, but what a crazy mess. 4 seasons of rewriting timelines every episode necessarily leaves you with a lot of questions.

Going to try RICK & MORTY next, which every young person I know seems to love.
