Amazon Prime's "The Expanse" (5 seasons)

Wednesday nights are date night which now means my wife and I retire to bed around 8:30pm and binge-watch a show together. We're both sci-fi nerds with science degrees and love how "The Expanse" actually tries to stay (somewhat) bound by the laws of physics. There's great characters, good-to-great writing, amazing special effects, some swearing but now nudity or excessive violence. It is a liner plot so you have to start at the beginning and watch them in order for it to make sense.

New mini-series on Netflix  -  The English Game

Created, written, and co-produced by Julian Fellowes (think Downton Abby). Excellent!

I enjoy binge watching 911 and 911: Lone Star.  I really like this new show called Zoe's Extraordinary Playlist (musical dramedy).  Also, enjoy watching New Amsterdam on occasion.

 Foyle's  War is one of the best BBC drama's made. It's about a police detective in England during WWII.

 

A fun series set in Australia in the roaring 20's is Miss Fisher's mysteries, with Essie Davis as a confident, smart and stylish lady detective.

 I like to binge-watch Sex and the City, Undeniable with Joe Buck (interviews with sports figures),  Downton Abbey, Classic Albums, The Big Interview with Dan Rather, and Rick Steve's Europe. Of all of those though Downton Abbey is my all-time fave.  Now is certainly a good time for binge-watching.

On Netflix:  Money Heist or La Casa de Papel  (part 1, 2, & 3, with part 4 announced for April 3rd)

 

The series is from Spain so be sure to turn on English language version (unless you know Spanish Cat Wink )  so you don't have to watch subtitles. The English is overdubbed and works really well. Lots of suspense and drama, twists and turns, but with enough comedy thrown in for good measure. It's one of the most popular titles on Netflix. I'm addicted, can't wait for Part 4!

I posted yesterday but thought of some additional series or shows worth your time.

 

Black Mirror - Each episode is a stand alone story so you can pick and choose when you read the synopsis.

 

The Night Manager

The Little Drummer Girl

House of Cards - from a few years ago - but very good.

ION TV has taken binge watching to a whole new level!  I watch CHICAGO PD, NCIS, LAW AND ORDER, and others.

On WGN, I love IN THE NEAT OF THE NIGHT. 

A must have for house-bound seniors!

Just watched the first episode of S1. Will definitely be back to watch more. I don't know much about the cast, but they are very good, it seems.

I should mention cuss words flow freely on this show. F-bombs can appear 2 or 3 times in a single sentence. But after episode 1 there's virtually no nudity so... maybe that evens out.

The topless scene was a bit of surprise! But taken in context to character and situation, it was very funny. The use of 4-letter words on this show do not seem any worse than most other non-network tv shows rated for MA audiences.

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!
