TV series you are watching now
« on: May 24, 2021, 11:11:47 pm »
I decided to make a thread of tv series that you are watching now because all that is available is the movies version.

For me right now:

My Brilliant Friend (Italian series based on a novel (2018-?):  Watched S1 and 2 within a month and it's fantastic (it's in Italian of course.. you will be mesmerised).   The scenery and feel of the series is amazing.

You (2018-?):  This series is very entertaining... watched all seasons up until now. It's just a series to watch that doesn't involve much input..

So which series are you watching?

The Man in the High Castle

Very interesting...but.. .the last few episodes were a let down. And, as usual, the bottom feeders of society were communists.

Gwad I haven't watched a tv dramatic series since I binge watched The Walking Dead (had to stop season 9 - got too too lame).

Reality TV? I rock every Survivor (need my fix!.c'mon!), The Amazing Race, Masterchef Australia (totally different than the negative vibing bitch-slapping backstabbing U.S. version, Big Brother (both U.S. & BBCAN).

The last American T.V. series I watched in real time was True Detective Season 3 (season 1 was most satisfying).

Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

NCISs
FBIs
SEAL Team
Mare of Easttown

Short Series watched this year:
WandaVision
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Raised by Wolves
The Mandalorian

I watched the first episode of "The Girl From Nowhere" yesterday. It's a Thai drama about a girl who goes to different high schools and creates havoc by fixing bad goings on. It was very Thai, if you get that. Drama. Not bad though. It's overdubbed in English.

Yeah, watched some of it but it gets a bit far-fetched later on. Main actress is a babe though.

I don't watch much TV.  I mostly watch documentaries off YouTube or something else I guess.  The odd movie download.  (Though I may try Netflix someday.  Haven't yet.) 
745sticky, Augustiner, Bakeacake, D.L.Orean, Lazio, Mithras, Renma, Rye are still blocked and I can't see them.

In episode 2 we learn she's a ghost. If you understand Thai people you'll understand why this show is a super duper wow amazing mega hit here :-)

I'm enjoying it simply for that fact.

I recently watched Sweet Tooth, season 1. I don't like where I see them going with it, but it's a good series. And it's short. That's important to me, I generally can't stay focused on a TV series if it has a ton of episodes per season.

Tried to watch Lucifer. Had to abandon that ship, I have no idea why people like it so much.

The Irregulars. Same thing as Lucifer.

I guess I lied a little, I can see a little of the initial appeal of both Lucifer and The Irregulars, but then they both piddle out into typical Buffy the Vampire Hunter type stuff, and... Buffy had its time, I feel like we should be moving on. But then I was also never a big fan of Supernatural, either, and that's still a thing, and the people who like it are still around, haha.

I am watching The Orville, mostly because of the actors, the show itself is kind of lame.  Too much of it is about a race of men that lay eggs and pee off hilltops at yearly intervals.  There’s also a robot that annoyingly keeps reminding everyone of their superiority, which essentially defeats the purpose of being superior in the first place.  Also, people on it  are drunk on the job way too often.

They also happen to have technology to regrow destroyed body-parts in the matter of hours, which makes you wonder why they’re not all 20-feet tall and super-human to avoid conflicts with evil aliens.  Lastly, the captain happens to be cuckholded by the co-captain, not very romantic.

I think it was on another thread (movies thread, I think) somebody mentioned watching "Mare of Easttown", so I decided to give it a go.  Wow, it's a great show.  Kate Winslet was terrific as the leading actress.  Would love some recommendations as to some thriller/crime shows in the same vein as this if anybody has any.

I loved it! Best thing I've watched for a long time. Shame about Quicksilver.

I'm thinking to start "True Detective". Each season (3) has a different cast and location.

Season 1 is incredibly good!

Same with Lucifer. I've seen it up to the last half of season 5 (last season) but I mostly had it going as background noise while I done other things. (which is how I watch most TV shows :P )
