Default The TV Show Thread

Everyone loves a good motion picture, but of course we all love good TV shows as well, right?

What are you watching, what are your must watch shows, and what's the latest and greatest?

Let me start.

Currently watching Bosch after it was recommended by a friend. I'm in the middle of season 2 and I love it, great cop show, got a fairly realistic feel to it, and they know how to make L.A. look really fascinating.

I am currently watching "designated survivor". I love this serie with Kiefer Sutherland. Indeed it's a very new serie, season 1 is available, season 2 is still not full available.

I recently watched the 3-part BBC-series House of Cards starring the amazing Ian Richardson.

Don't get me wrong, Kevin Spacey is delivering an incredible performance in the US remake, but what I really love about the BBC version from 1990 is that it is very much to the point: 3 seasons, 4 episodes each. The entire show would fit into any season of the remake. But it's not lacking anything. Quite the opposite, it's entirely focused on the story and doesn't get side-tracked. Plus, it has a clearly-defined end.

Almost 30 years later it's absolutely worth watching!

Just watched Collateral, an utterly British crime show. I liked it. Short, to the point, great actors, good story.

But man, the way British shows make it a point to toss the audience right into the middle of things without explaining or introducing any characters... maybe there's something to be learned from the Americans.

Have been watching the YouTube oldies like, "What's My Line?' . I just barely remember this stuff having been born in 1951. What a joy to see the older cream of the crop actors of before my generation as guests.

YouTube has lots of old TV shows and some Broadway shows.

My Sony TV screen has WiFi capability off my Internet feed.

And nowadays do not suffer lousy frame rates like just a few years ago.

Current TV programming from Spectrum service, all 5,000 channels >>> damn! nothing much on that interests me.

I like the oldies stuff.
