Has anyone seen the Finnish crime drama, Bordertown, on Netflix? It's dubbed in English which makes the main character, Kari Sorjonen, even more quirky. Give it a try!

Also on Netflix -

 

Just finished Season 3 of The Crown. (All 3 seasons are available.) Season 3 has replaced the younger actors with age appropriate ones. Josh O'Connor (The Durrells in Corfu) was a great choice for Prince Charles.

 

If you like suspence, watch Pine Gap Season 1. Another spy thriller.

@MaVolta, I've been waiting for just the right time to watch the current season of The Crown (which btw I can't stop calling The Queen!...). Thanks for suggesting Pine Gap that sounds like my kind of series.

Nothing is worth binge watching.  It is a waste of valuable time.  Get out and volunteer and make a difference!

If I'm awake in the middle of the night, I'm not volunteering anywhere. There's no better time than the wee hours of the day to tune into shows that I'd feel guilty watching for three hours straight in the middle of a bright and sunshiny day. But there's not much worth binging, I'd agree.



It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.

If binge-watching eases your stress during this time...binge-watch. If you are even able to volunteer and it fulfills you to do so...volunteer. Don't let a stranger online tell you what is best for you to do in your spare time to get through this stressful time. Stress reduces your resistance to illness. Just be calm, wash your hands, keep your distance from others and be safe and well. We are all in this together!

Interesting reply.

 

I "binge watch" several programs that repeat entire seasons before season finale, while volunteering at food bank and vets' village throughout the program's broadcast season; so maybe binge watching isn't what you think it is, nor as much of a "waste of valuable time" as you state, @2Papa ?

 

Maybe think before you type?

My favorite show is Ghost Adventures and Deal Files.  I have learned so much on both of those shows.  On Dead files, Amy talks about the corridors of Aliens and the Corridors of the non living.  They actually can be side by side, or in a different spot in your yard.  The living might not even be aware and walk thru it and would disappear and not know how to go back.  Sounds like the missing 411 to me. Ghost Adventures is exciting to me because they all really try to find Evidence of Ghosts and they do and it's on camera.  Like shadow people, they wander our planet and I believe they are from another dimension.  They aren't nice at all, it's best to move from your location, they don't follow you.

The other one I enjoy is Contact, which is a new one but showing how UFOs are around all the volcanoes  around our world.  They were just talking about South America, they have over 400 volcanoes and there are more and more clusters of UFOS landing and submerging in lakes, all on camera.  It was so fascinating.  I do believe in UFOs because I have seen them in Hawaii.

Another show I like is Josh Gates in something Undiscovered.  He's an anthropologist and loves trying to find out the truth about anything, like finding Giants in Peru!  They found a set of bones of a man who was nine feet tall!

He had a really big head.  Sounds like Bigfoot to me.  And yes, there are BIgfoots around Virginia, State of Washington, Oregon, Montana, Georgia, pretty much where there is dense forest.

I do like comedy so I go on Netflix for comedy shows and laugh my head off.

I LOVE to watch the Drain The Oceans programs on National Geographic.  Sometimes a few come on back to back for hours of viewing.  It doesn't matter how many times I've seen them, I still feel like I see something I missed the last time. 

 

For laughs, I could watch all the old episodes of MASH and laugh all over again.

If you are a Ted Dansen fan, look for "Becker". He plays a curmugenly Bronx doctor. IMO its funnier than Cheers.
