It's not really my favorite genre either, but it's really well done. It is about far more than the world it portrays.gator wrote:
Ray Donovan comes back tonight. Can't wait to see what kind of wacky hijinks Bunchy gets into this season.
Also started Season 1 of Game of Thrones. It's not really my genre, but wanted to see what all the hubbub is about.
You can get both shows for free on DVD at the libraryIsland Annie wrote: I was surprised to find that I loved Narcos. We started watching it to see Pedro Pascal in a non Game of Thrones role, but I was quickly hooked.
We are in the midst of a warped little series called Tin Star. Tim Roth plays a police chief in the middle of nowhere in Canada going up against an oil company, and apparently, his past. It feels like a cross between Northern Exposure and maybe Twin Peaks.
What I would like to know is how I can watch things like Ray Donovan and Homeland without paying for Showtime.
Better late than never! It's definitely raw and gritty, but the way the story unfolds, its hard not to watch. I think my favorite thing about the show is the time period coupled with a modern soundtrack. Genius. I finished Season 4 last night and can't say enough good things about it. Arthur's unpredictability and demeanor crack me up lol. Enjoy!Karly wrote: Very late to the party but finally tearing up Peaky Blinders on Netflix. The violence turned me off so much that I couldn't watch it but more than one person told me to try the second episode so I finally did and was hooked. I do close my eyes frequently. But it is my current binge. I love binges.
I sometimes have trouble understanding the dialogue because of the English accents, so reading a recap online is a must most of the time!Karly wrote: Agree on that. Also...for me it is the character development which became clear in the second episode of Season 1. OMG. Tommy. Grace. Polly. Arthur. I just watched the wedding episode from Season 2. When a writer gets me to like people who have done such awful things I know they are good.
