Need an engrossing show to keep my mind off the current madness

    After skipping out on the first season of Ozark, I played catch up leading up to season 3 airing. It's incredible and season 3 was top-class. Shame I didn't pay it more attention sooner.

    After also skipping out mid-way through the first season (yep, it's a pattern) of Killing Eve, decided to catch up over the last week. First year was solid but once Waller-Bridge stopped writing, the show went downhill hugely.

    Watching the second series of Save Me now.. love Lennie James. It's a great cast to be honest.

    Not sure what's next for me.. maybe The Umbrella Academy - which I also opted out of during.. yep you guessed it.. the first season.

    Yeah, I though killing eve was kind of symptomatic of whats going wrong with tv in general..very slick, all action shots to music, thin enough on the actual drama..

    I'm about to give Kidding a watch, starring Jim Carrey.

    Never heard of it before a few days ago.

    Forgot about Person of Interest. It's brilliant. Bit corny to begin with, bit bad guy of the week-ish but it's the last series that I got that kinda empty feeling when you're about to finish a great book.

    So is Bosch worth watching?
    What's it about (without giving tooo much away)

    Very reliable, good warranty.

    Yes I kinda enjoyed the first few episodes of season one until other shows got my attention. I believe as the seasons grow it changes direction tonely and very much for the better

    The big obstacle for in trying older network shows like this are their 24 episodes a season. The current standard of 10-14 episodes a season make for a much better viewing experience

    Have you watched Power ?

    Think I'll pass on Power, thanks

    Looking forward to more Succession tonight and then maybe a try of Bosch in a couple of weeks

    The Blacklist is another one, very good. If you want something a little lighter, maybe The Rookie.

    For light hearted, Psych is a great show


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,550 ✭✭✭ShineOn7


    I'm upto episode 9 of Succession and really liking it now. It takes 7 episodes to lift off

    Forgot somehow to mention: 'Justified' also stars Walton Goggins is excellent in one of the main roles. You'll recall he was brilliant as Shane Vendrell in 'The Shield'.

    Reminds me that his role in Sons of Anarchy was unexpected, to say the least

    Halt catch fire is a great watch.

    It's not on NowTV as far as I know. 1st season can be streamed on Amazon for a fee.

    Another show that ended strongly too. I hate shows that end poorly as it leaves you feeling unsatisfied.

    Yes from looking at reviews it seems it started fairly average in season one but each season after getting stronger. The last season has wide critical acclaim

    Is any of it's story based on Gates or Jobs etc, or is it 100% fiction?

    Nothing is more engrossing than Home & Away. I would also recommend purchasing the Two and a half men box set, it gives me many laughs and I am a suicidal depressive so that speaks volumes. Maybe it is because the character Alan reminds me of myself, a failed man.

    It's fictional but you can clearly map some of the characters - one for example will remind you of Jobs. Some of their ideas will also ring a bell or two but not to the extent it will feel they're plagarising - just using some of the themes and ideas.

    Criminal Minds. Excellent show. Its just finished up there recently and had a great ending too. Its 15 seasons long so lots to keep you entertained with and busy.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.
