Top TV Series to watch in these days of this virus.

Recommended Posts

Banshee  ... Holy F*cking $h*t ... best series I never knew about and just started watching!

Best fight scenes since Reservoir Dogs / Pulp Fiction

Hot naked chicks getting hardcore banged silly every episode?

Decent list. 

 

+5 Extra Points for Hannibal. Thought I was the only die hard fan around. Having grow up reading Harris, and Hannibal being an old friend, I think MM is the best of them. Brian Cox was a close second as "Lektor" in Manhunter. Hopkins was meh imo.

 

Unfortunately,  -1,000 for lack of Expanse. Or any other good Sci Fi (Battlestar Galactica? Stargate? Mandalorian?)

 

Sorry. 

 

LOL, stay safe Tony

Expanse + BSG are great. You've got good taste.

Liked the first episode of the third season of Westworld.

Peaky Blinders is great too.

I couldn't get into Westworld. Didnt hear good things about season 2. 

 

I HAVE heard that Peaky Blinders was good. Have to check it out.....

 

Oh, @Tony The Wiz No "The Boys"? Bro.... don't let "genre" types keep you away from great TV.

THE BOYS another good one. Peaky Blinders is good. I didn't like s2 of Westworld either tbh, but 3 started out well... and we all got a lot of time on our hands these days.

not sure if it was listed but:

Ozarks is really good

Mandolarian is good, not great.

The Punisher

Jessica Jones.

Jack Ryan isn't that bad.

Glad to see Better Call Saul, The Wire on the list.

Braodchurch was okay but it's hard to understand people who talk with marbles in their mouths.

Ozarks was way to much of a Breaking Bad copy but yes The Punisher was excellent.  That was right there with my top 50 series.  I am now watching a series on Netflix called The Iron Fist which has a Punisher feel.  You need to check it out.

I'm two episodes into Counterpart with J.K. Simmons.  So far, I'd give it 7/10.  Interesting story, but waiting for it to ramp up a bit.  Worth checking out, IMO.

One of the greatest series of all time with top level writing and acting.  John Hamm is incredible as Don Draper.  My favorite story arc is when he has an extended trip in California.  You've got a ways to go before then.  Enjoy the ride.

Rake - Australian tv show (NOT the US one) - the main character Cleaver Greene is so good.

Witcher is awesome, if you haven’t seen Penny Dredful cue that up as well.

I see very few good series that most people talk about because I am idiotically  stuck in the 80's with normal cable and no access to hbo or netflix or other streaming services.

Tried watching Witcher a few weeks ago.  Just did not connect with it.  Felt like it was overwritten and a cheap knock off of Game of Thrones.  But WYF do I know?  Enjoy watching it, Crush.

Fargo Season 1 was great . They got worse in 2 and 3 .

I thought 2 was every bit as good as 1, except for the whole UFO thing.  3 was a major drop-off though.

Just caught up with “Peaky  Blinders “— Good show. Not “The Sopranos” and does tend to get a bit slow but worth it.

The Wire is the GOAT (by far IMO). Sopranos is number two.

Just finished episode 8 of “Hunters” on Prime. Good watch worth it during this incubation period. Will finish it off tomorrow. 

Another show from the list  would highly recommend is “JUSTIFIED’ 

 

also  would add Daredevil on NETFLIX

Loved Daredevil as long as Foggy was off-screen.  I enjoyed Punisher as well.

season 4 was supposed to start 4/16 … darn

 

The fourth season is set in 1950 in Kansas City and the story follows two crime syndicates as they vie for control. The cast is led by Chris Rock, who plays Loy Cannon, the head of a crime syndicate made up of black migrants fleeing the Jim Crow South who have a contentious relationship with the Kansas City mafia. Other cast members include Jessie Buckley, Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, and Timothy Olyphant.

The season was originally scheduled to premiere on April 19, 2020, on the basic cable network FX, but this was postponed indefinitely due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. FX will announce a new premiere date once production resumes.
