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.

:~)

Thanks to the large capacity of my DVR furnished by Direct TV I have recorded all episodes of...

"The Twilight Zone".

Am the process of recording "DS-9" in chronological order.  I previously did this with "Voyager"...it took awhile
I record some episodes of the original "CSI" and "Castle" when available.

I view the above after watching the weekly shows like "NCIS", "Blue Bloods", etc. I record all those for later viewing and fast-forwarding past the commercials

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!

What's your preferred smoke? Cigar?

I'll take a bourbon whiskey.

Green, usually in a onie, but cigar form will do nicely!

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!

Wow, Jeremy, we seem to have very similar tastes.

  3. Homeland
  4. Picard
  5. Outlander
  6. The Plot Against America (this should be a must see. It's amazing)

Only two episodes in and reread the Philip Roth book in anticipation...watch this show!

More relevant and frightening now than when the book was written. Check out the NPR interview with Roth for even greater insight.

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    2 days ago

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.

Don’t F**k with cats was flabbergasting. Hard to believe how wack some people are. Good show though.

We have been binging The Great British Baking Show. I have already finished Lost In Space, The Expanse and Altered Carbon. Working on rewatching all the seasons of Person Of Interest, Eureka and Supernatural.

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.

Well, admittedly being an oddball, I've been watching old movies available on the Internet Archive.

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.
