Just about finished with Bosch and have really enjoyed it. Anyone got any other series recommendations worth watching?

If you're just looking for something quick and funny try Kim's Convenience. It's a CBC show based in Toronto and each episode is only 18-22 min long. 3 Seasons so far.

What kind of shows are you interested in? There's honestly so much stuff out there it's hard to keep up.

I enjoyed Ozark

For Amazon I just finished Hanna which was really interesting. It's kind of similar to a Jason Bourne concept only with a teenage girl. Corrupt CIA program and all. It was good though. Also Man in the High Castle is good but a little weird. That's about all I've tried on Amazon as far as originals go.

For Netflix there is so much. I haven't watched Stranger Things but that has become one of the most talked about so I'll probably check it out soon. I think season 3 is being released this summer. I like Arrested Development for comedy. I hear Ozark is good but haven't seen that one either. Shows that are no longer being released but were good original were House of Cards, and Bloodline. I enjoyed the Marvel originals on Netflix as well but they've all been discontinued. Some were better than others... Daredevil was probably the best, and Jessica Jones. I could go on and on haha.

Definitely check out Stranger Things. I've got to re-watch them again before the new season comes out.

Amazon:
- Fleabag
- Good Omens
- Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
- The Man in the High Castle
- Jack Ryan
- The Widow
- Any of the "All Or Nothing" seasons - my favorite is where they followed New Zealand's All Blacks Rugby Team
- Homecoming (haven't watched but heard it was good)
- Goliath (ditto)
- Sneaky Pete (ditto)

Ozark is amazing, highly recommend. I also enjoyed The OA, but you have to have an open mind as it's kind of odd.
I once blocked Muggsy Bogues' shot at the Siskey YMCA.

Forgot about Marvelous Mrs Maisel. That is a great show. Really funny.

Parks and Rec is always a great comedy. Also 30 Rock
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmit is similar humor

Can't believe no one has mentioned Breaking Bad

A Series of Unfortunate Events is something really different. My wife and I highly enjoyed it as sub-30 adults, but I think it would be even better for a family with kids 8-13ish.

Catastrophe is really funny on Amazon. It's about an accidental pregnancy between an Irish woman in London and a American visiting.

Black Mirror is intense and depressing, but really well done.


Masters of None (Aziz's show) is great

Big Mouth - Coming of Age / Puberty animated show

Archer - animated adult show starring an acholic spy

Yeah Parks and Rec and Breaking Bad are definitely two of my go-tos for re-runs.

LOL!!!

First Episode is real weird, but give it a couple more. They are all very dark and dystopian though

Yep,

I really like it. It makes you think. All about the dystopian futures with tech. Some are more realistic and chilling than others. But I always follow it with a comedy since it is so dark.

If you want to check it out, Season 1, episode 3 is the one I'd recommend to try it. Every episode is stand alone

What would you do in his situation?

Watched the first episode of the new season last night. How do people come up with this stuff? I don't know why I like the show so much...it just makes me sad.
PackDaddy

I watched the first season last night. They are all very well done. I will have to say that episode three is probably the darkest just because of how it could become reality.

I would take the stance that we don't negotiate with terrorist. But to play along and pick between yes and no if I was in that situation. I would make love to the pig. Yes that act will impact your life forever but you are also offering life to someone much younger then you.

The best part is that the finger pushed him to do it, but then she appears on the bridge completely unscathed.

Now his wife despises him.
PackDaddy
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I wouldn't say that she despises him, more so embarrassed and now knows that the way of life they have known is now over. The part with the the finger is so bad written, how does one not know the difference between a young female finger and that of what looks to be an elderly dock worker?

I'm almost done with Fleabag and I'm obsessed with it. There's some serious soul searching, questions of relationships, family, religion, etc. It's a really funny show but hits hard at some times.

Not Netflix or Amazon but have watched four of five episodes of Chernobyl and it has been very good. Would definitely recommend.

The Last Kingdom is awesome. Can't wait for new season of that. I also for the first time just started Vikings. I had never seen it... reminds me a lot of the Last Kingdom. I like those type of shows.

Agree it was great. It's 5 episodes total IIRC. There is also an excellent podcast with one of the writers that goes through each episode along with real events.

Have started watching "Dead To Me" on Netflix and it's pretty entertaining

statefan91

So never really followed through with Dead to Me above. I'm sure it's fine just lost interest after a couple episodes.

Started watching "The Boys" on Amazon. The world has a lot of Superheroes and there is a group called "The Seven" which are all under a corporate umbrella and considered the "superstar" heroes. It's very corporate and they're actually very corrupt / have ulterior motives. Then there is a ragtag group that comes together called "The Boys" that are vigilantes trying to take on the heroes / corporation / etc. It can be pretty dark but I've really enjoyed it so far.

Warning - Trailer has some blood / violence

Damnation - Really Good

Animal Kingdom on prime is growing on me
Godless - Also really good
The Sinner
Mindhunter
