Has anyone watched the Korean Drama "D.P".??

I think it was really well done.  It's about a soldier that has been recruited to capture soldiers that have run away from the mandatory military service. 

I am currently watching the K-Drama "Signal" and I'm thinking it will be a good one as well (only on episode 2). 

I really enjoy thrillers and crime serials and Korea is coming through with some awesome TV that's for sure.

Thursday nights before bed (our time) I watch the latest episodes of

The Challenge
and
Survivor

(I think are aired Wednesday nights back home).

I watch them on joymovies.to
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.

I always watch Survivor. That and The Amazing Race are my guilty pleasure TV shows.  They have gone way overboard with the advantages this season. And that hourglass may have made for a good reaction, but itís against the whole point of the game.  It was completely arbitrary and punished a team for kicking ass in a challenge.

Agreed.

 The hourglass was:

1. Irresistible. EVERY player would have hit it.

2. Disrespectful. Reversing accomplishments earned is wrong. Wrong. I would sue the show if i was eliminated on that.

'Dexter' is back after 8 years. Downloaded season 9 episode 1, this afternoon. I got a bit tired of it and didn't watch the final season or so. However, I'll give it another crack.

Yeah it got very repetitive. Every season some new  nemesis appeared, he almost got caught but in the end he didn't. I watched all the seasons before but towards the end it was more like out of habit rather than real interest.
It's still nice to see his character after a nearly decade-long pause. The Miami vibe was a core element of the show before, but I like the new environment. It has a bit of a Fargo feeling.

Don't worry, Kurt, I'm not a fat, cantankerous old fart, yet, but I enjoy watching and posting about movies/tv shows. I got your back.

As for Dexter, I had to give up on that show. I like the idea of it, the premise is interesting, and it started off very promising, but it got wrapped up in too much drama. I'm all for character development, but I wanted to see more serial killer stuff and less existential falangering. Had too much of one and not enough of the other, imo, but that's me. I tend to get overly critical of shows that go on for too long anyway.

Gotta hit me hard and fast and be on your way or I'm gonna get bored.

I am recently finding Survivor South Africa as compelling as Survivor.

Though neither as good as Survivor Australia (three of that series are epic).

A MESSAGE:

If you have loved Survivor then give Survivor Australia or Survivor South Africa a chance. I could recommend specific seasons via PM.

One of the best Sci-Fi series out there. Haven't watched yet as I like to binge watch it.

I love watching the Beverly Hillbillies when I'm in a nostalgic mood... in fact many shows from the 60s, like;  'I Dream of Jeannie', 'The High Chaparel', 'Get Smart', and 'The Andy Griffiths Show'...there are so many good ones. Nothing like childhood memories.

This is another one I've thought about, but have yet to watch. I'll keep it for a rainy day.


There are over 300 episodes, so save it for a rainy month ...

;D ;D  Wow, I thought there were only 6 seasons. I'm way off in my binge watching calculations. Maybe retirement then.



The last two seasons had 100 shows each.  I think it must be quite popular.  There is a variety of quirky, interesting, sometimes ingenious games.  Many of the guests are smart or at least amusing, and I love the way Osman bad-mouths the show's own prizes.

Speaking of nostalgia....I have watched these shows continuously as they are TIMELESS and unbeatable.  I recommend The Twilight Zone and I Love Lucy....the humour is still there with Lucy and The Twilight Zone (original series) is spooky and cerebral, scary and classic.

I can't recommend these series enough.  My favourite shows of all time.  You can dl them on torrent sites but it'll take about 50 gb or more for Lucy and little less for the Twilight Zone I think.  You will never erase them.

One for what you are watching now. One for what you have watched. And one for what you are watching but it's currently between seasons or you are taking a break from it.
