Watched season 4 of Lucifer over a two day stretch Netflixs the other day. Was not disappointed. Can't wait for season 5, (which will be their last season). Also watched Designated Survivor over two day period as well.
Happy that it had been picked up for the season but soooo disappointed that it's turning out to be the last season for it too. Maybe a miracle will spring forth and we'll get another season to see
how it turns out following Kirkman's election. Too many things were left hanging

Old fuddy duddy that I am...I usually watch either old re-runs of dramedy or comedy series.....Seinfield, Friends, Mad About You, Murphy Brown and favorite: House...or old movies on TCM channel. I also love all the epic sweeping type films.....Braveheart, Dances with Wolves, Gandhi, Lawrence of Arabia, Gone with the Wind, Out of Africa....

I guess I am really telling my age here but it is no secret. ;) I did follow Game of Thrones like a crack addict....and the first season of True Detectives....but haven't been able to warm too much to the other newer movie channel series. Net Flix has Stranger Things which I have seen a few on You Tube...and I think I might like that but don't have Net Flix. Oh well....I have 400 channels of cable, if I can't find something to watch, then maybe I ought to check my priorities. Right?

Kim's Convenience on Netflix. I started watching just because I wanted to see what kind of actor Simu Liu was, since he's now signed on to play Shang-Chi in the upcoming Marvel movies, but I ended up getting hooked. The show is hilarious - as for Liu, he's good; he's not a very commanding presence, and he's very funny, so I'm remaining just cautiously optimistic about what he can do in the MCU. I mean, maybe they're going for a more humorous route with the character of Shang-Chi. Who knows?

Took me a moment with “DSN.” I always say DS9, so you got me really excited that there was something out there I hadn’t seen before. I really like DSN, probably my favorite ST series. Next Gen with Patrick Stuart will always have that special place though.

Blazing through Psyche again! Then I’m hoping to go back to Pretender or even... Star Gate-1 (which is like a year long commitment)

All of the renditions of Star Trek ,( except the Abrams crap), is fantastic. DSN/DS9 is da bomb. A shame they never got to do a movie version.

Don’t actually mind JJ. Abrams stuff though its just a little too convenient that they shift it all into a alternate timeline. It reminds me Disney buying Starwars and then say all the Cannon was scrapped!

Watching the next season of Madam Secretary now. Tried the next season of Designated Survivor but couldn’t stand the sudden onslaught of swearing that the writers suddenly decided the show needed. :angry:

Have been binging Mindhunter on Netflix. First season was okay. Didn't care for romance sequences but guess there's people out there who will differ but that's okay
Am on season two now and it's better. Really like the interview with the killers sequences best. It's not a favorite show by all means but will more than like will continue to watch.
As long as I'm able fast forward through the mushy stuff.

Am currently binge watching "Enterprise" &" Person of Interest". Both were shows I personally tuned into when originally aired and have bought complete series on DVD.
Couldn't understand why they were cancelled.

Currently watching John Adams, a seven part series made by HBO many years ago and can be watched for free ON DEMAND. It is SO great.

Finished binge watching "Unbelievable" A limited series on Netflix. Really good. Hope they make more and that, if they do, they turn out just as good

I'm currently watching "The Spy" on Netflix - it's really good, and Sacha Baron-Cohen turns in a fabulous, dramatic performance. I'm having a hard time convincing myself to watch the final few episodes though, because it's so suspenseful, and so nerve-wracking.

Binge watched the first two seasons of the Australian show "Glich" on Netflix. Interesting. Kept me watching at least. Will more than likely keep watching. ... :)

I watched the first few episodes, but didn't continue, mainly because I had other shows I was watching and just didn't have time to add another.

New shows I'm currently watching as they come out: 9-1-1, The Rookie, Evil, Emmergence,Poldark, Durrells in Corfu, The Resident and The Blacklist

Loved Mindhunter, but I'm with you Niniu, I didn't care for the romance part either... I kept thinking; get back to the interesting stuff already!

I binged Unbelievable as well, good stuff.

GOT is over, but I may go back and re-watch the entire series

I also binged The Killing..loved it and really liked Bletchly Circle and Broadchurch (couple British offerings in the crime/whodunit genre)

Don't want to ruin this for anyone so I'm going to be a bit cyrptic.
Probably won't watch "Glitch" any further. They did something to a favorite character in the first episode of the third season that I don't agree with. Always happens. .. :x

I'm on Netflix. I do enjoy it. Will probably renew the subscription when that comes due.

"When They See Us" ..... 2019 ..... Jharrel Jones ..... Marquis Williams .... John Leguizamo .... and many more

I don't usually recommend many films or tv programs but will say if you ever get a chance to see this one, do it. I don't think you'd be very disappointed. It's the story of the five young people accused of the assault and rape of the jogger in Central Park. I'll be watching for more work by the director, Ava DuVernay

I remember when this incident was in the news..then it fell off the radar. Sadly, I never heard that there was a controversy surrounding these kids being arrested until this show came out..I'll be watching.4

"Godfather Of Harlem" ..... Forest Whitiker

Epix channel is having a free preview couple of weeks and this is one of their programs.The free period ends on the 21st.
There's one more episode left in this time frame that I can watch and will do so. Well acted and written. Not a perfect show but well done just the same. To watch more will
have to subscribe to the channel. (5.99 more per month) Bill is already too high so won't be a new subscriber and will wait for another "free" to come around.

Basil, I cut the cord in 2003 and never looked back..Streaming, being able to watch what you want and when you want to and record. I use YouTube TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, PBS Masterpiece, HBO and Starz..it's probably too much to tell you the truth, but the most expensive is the YouTube TV..tons of channels, my hubby gets his football and golf fix and I can save the shows I like to the cloud and watch whenever.

I do buy digital movies now and again on Amazon, and they are all saved there on the cloud as well.

Sense8 on Netflix...a brilliant sci-fi series about eight people from around the world who become telepathically linked to each other. It was canceled after just two seasons (something I did not know when I started watching, much to my eventual dismay), but it's so mind-blowing and visionary that it's hard to feel sad - it's right up alongside Cloud Atlas as some of the Wachowskis' best work, in my opinion, and I would love to see them revisit the story or premise sometime in the future. It also featured a very charming cameo from Sylvester McCoy (Radagast), and a villainous performance from Joseph Mawle (who has just been cast in Amazon Prime's Lord of the Rings series).
