Well since I just found out here that Picard Start Trek is gonna be free for a while, we'll hit that first. Then finish up with Lost In Space season 2. That of course will be interspersed with many rounds of CoD Modern Warfare.

:~)

Yeah I am really starting to regret having gave up on CoD and letting the Xbox go now.😕

I can't get the Picard series, so my bingeing consists of all the Law And Order shows, some good smoke, and mimosas.

Sure you can! Perrie posted a great article today in the link I provided above, that allows FREE access for a week!

Even though I have nothing but positive things to say about Law and Order, good smoke or mimosas!

Okay, make that two kinds of smokes.  I favor Black And Mild Jazz cigars and my other smoke is.....jrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif

My fav liquors are vodka, champagne, and Kahlua added to hot chocolate.

I'm pretty much a beer drinker, though an occasional screwdriver does come into play. Give me a hoppy or dark beer and I'm as happy as a clam!

On first read, I thought..."I've never added champagne into the mix." As I type, I'm thinking maybe I didn't misread after all. 

Vodka is a staple.

I watch FBI.  Dont watch it for a while and then watch three episodes or so in an evening. 

A lot like Law and Order without the lawyers. 

If I was going to watch one show for 5 or 6 hours in a row it would be Frasier.

4.1  Just Jim NC TttH  replied to  JohnRussell @4    last year

I used to watch Frasier on Amazon Prime but at the first of the year it went all CBS and now you have to pay to watch it. Not going to pay $1.99 an episode so I'll probably continue watching Cheers for free (sort of) on Netflix. One season of Frasier is $15.00 now but 24 episodes goes pretty fast when the show is commercial free. Only like 21 or 22 minutes an episode.

A Schitts Creek is my wife”s favorite, we get it on the Canadian channel CBC and also watch it on Amazon. Funny as hell that show is! 
now Ozark is fantastic and my son and I gulped it down as soon a season 2 came out. I expect 3 to be the same.

After it was canceled on SyFy, The Expanse moved to Amazon Prime for Seasons 3 and 4. We haven't seen a release date of Season 5 yet, but it was ordered and production was supposed to start in June.

I'd love a new reboot of Person of Interest that doesn't rewrite the original but picks up where the original team left off.

The first season is better than the second season, but I very much enjoyed it. It's beautifully shot and well directed. It sounds impressive on my surround sound system (which is a step up from basic) too.

Recently watched Ford vs Ferrari and the documentary They Shall Not Grow Old on pay for view. 

I thought Ford vs Ferrari was great. It was kind of like The Right Stuff but about cars instead of jet test pilots and space capsules. The two lead actors Matt Damon and Christian Bale were excellent, and the cinematography was fantastic. 

They Shall Not Grow Old is a documentary about British soldiers on the front line of WWI.  Much of the film is in color, as the filmmaker colorized old footage which has never been seen before (to my knowledge). The narration seems to be actors reading the diaries and words of actual WWI soldiers. The scenes are utterly fascinating if you are a history buff at all. There are a few gruesome scenes, as dead bodies and dead horses are shown in mass a couple times.

On Tuesday Mar 31st you can buy a 

$250, Best Buy-exclusive box set called Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It’s a 27-disc set that features all nine saga movies getting three discs each (Blu-ray, 4K, and bonus features).

I'm a casual fan of Star Wars, which is to say I've seen the movies in the theater, but I haven't purchased anything on disk. I was gifted the OT on VHS back in the day and I got Rouge One on BluRay for Christmas when it came out. I do like the bonus features and documentaries on how big films are made.

I started watching Evil on CBS All Access a few days ago.  Totally into it.

I'll probably catch up on Project Blue Book next.

I may have to binge the first few seasons of The Walking Dead again after that. A bit morbid, but apocalyptic disease stuff feels like a fitting theme at the moment.

There's also that new War of the Worlds series on Epix. I've been DVRing it, but I haven't started watching it yet.

For lighter moods, I always have my old standbys... 90's sitcoms, and all of the Star Trek shows on DVD.

We don't stream or have things like showtime, but we have lots of DVDs. Been watching House episodes, Bond movies beginning with 1st, all Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns, Jack Ryan movies. Also have Rick Steves travel DVDs, since we probably won't be going back to Europe any time soon.
