Movies / TV Shows - I Have Watched / Plan To Watch

Recommended Posts

I am very late to the party here, but I'm pretty sure nfreeman a few others watched Schitt's Creek? I think I'm near the end of season 3, and definitely enjoying it. Moira's absurd outfits and wigs and David's general awkwardness are always good for a laugh.

Hey, bio, long time no see.  How you doing?

@biodork -- yes -- Schitt's Creek was a really enjoyable comedy.

Separately, I just finished "Zerozerozero" on Amazon Prime.  Pretty good international crime/drug war show.  It's a lot like the movie "Sicario" and in fact some of the episodes were directed by the director of the 2nd Sicario movie.  Solid B-plus.

Overly busy with work here. I've hardly followed the Sabres or hockey the last year or more. I'm a bad fan. ?

There are a lot of good fans that have been bad fans over the last 7 years.

As others have said, no worries about the fanhood.  We are all in the same boat, but in Canada you need to say it like boot, eh.

Thank you for your service too.  How are you?  Healthy, I hope.  Stay safe.

I would advise everyone to watch “Searching for Sugarman”.  It’s a 2 hour documentary true story about a music star. I don’t want to give much away but it’s a heartwarming story on Netflix

Speaking of Netflix ... I highly recommend Night On Earth.

Its a multipart series about nature at night. Fascinating, beautiful, enlightening, and magnificent.

Need suggestions and I don't have time to read entire thread.

These are my 3 favorite streaming shows 1. Game of Thrones. 2.The Last Kingdom and  3. Vikings.  I needs a new series that's great historical action.  Any ideas.

I just started Godless. One episode in. So far, pretty good.

For a quick 40 min Family Friendly night - speed cubers on Netflix was nice. It focused on two people, one autistic, that dominated the world of Rubiks cube solving. Typical times around six seconds.

Vikings is great.

If you're into the old west, I enjoyed both Godless and Westworld.  Westworld's future and past, but still.

I liked Black Sails, which was on Starz, if pirates interest you.

I googled “The Borge”  but nothing came up. Is the spelling correct?

He probably meant "The Borgias". It was a series on Showtime about the rise of a family in Renaissance Italy

Sorry, yes The Borgias. And not just any family, the Pope.

I just finished Breaking Bad on Netflix recently. I know I’m about a decade late to the party but wow what a great show. If you’ve never watched it stop whatever it is your currently watching and watch it immediately. Brilliant show

Just watched The Tax Collector.  Figured the negative reviews were attributed to stereotypes/insensitivity.  Nope...it just sucks.

I just started Ash vs. Evil Dead this week.  It doesn't get more historical than that.
