    Over the past few days I watched quite a few episodes of Twin Peaks. What a trip, makes no sense, plot lines seem to exist for the sole purpose of writing new episodes.

    We plowed through all the episodes of that one pretty quickly earlier this year. The sadness haunts me that we still have months to go before new episodes come out.

    Nice counter point to Elementary, different takes on the same character
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Though both are set in contemporary times, Elementary takes a less traditional take on the characters

    Got Season 1 of Married from the library and my wife and I are currently bingeing it.

    It's pretty good if a bit depressing. But depressing in a more realistic/normal/believable/identifiable and very self aware way.

    I recommend it.

    Working my way through Blacklist currently... then on to Narcos.

    I'm in the middle of season 2 of Death In Paradise.

    Pretty good show, scenery, humor, mystery, twists, but I just realized something - there sure are a lot of murders in this tiny Caribbean island, at least one or two a week (an episode). It is the main premise for the show, hence the name I guess. But not a good marketing plan for tourism.

    Analogous to the theory that Jessica Fletcher was the Angel of Death.

    My wife suggested we watch You're The Worst a few months ago. We watched the first two episodes together and neither of us really cared for it and all the rest of the episodes from season 1 just sat in our DVR. We needed to clear some space last week and I was about to delete them all but decided to start watching them again as season 2 had just started and I kept reading good things about it. After getting past those first 2 episodes I was hooked. The two main characters are truly in contention for the worst people on earth but the supporting characters are generally pretty good (or at least infinitely more likable in the awfulness). I have one more episode to watch from season 1 so I can start season 2.

    Isn't Blacklist awesome?

    I just started The Follower - it's very creepy and violent but it's a good thriller

    I have Season 1 on hold at the Library for my wife and I. Glad to hear more good reviews/opinions about it.

    I just finished up 5 seasons of walking dead. I kinda wish I would have read the comic instead because it would have paced myself more due to the price per comic. I understand it's a slightly different story line but I don't know if there would be enough difference to maintain my interest. I don't think I'll binge watch anything for a while.

    I don't want to like The Blacklist, but it is great. Red's moral ambiguity is both the most disturbing and yet the best part of the show. Blindside is another show which is proving pretty interesting. However, there are a couple of story threads they need to drop.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    The wife and I have 4 episodes left of Season 2 of Outlander. It's been awesome so far. Love the "time traveler lost in a different time" and having to adapt aspect of it mixed in with a good dose of history and some gratuitous sex and violence. Not bad.

    I'm enjoying it immensely. I have always liked shows in which there are few, if any, clearly good guys. I'm not 100% sure Red is a hero, or Keen, for that matter, but I prefer deeply flawed protagonists like them.

    Hubby and I are into The Man in the High Castle - about halfway through. So far so great!

    I hear good things about Vikings, but didn't see it last time I checked Netflix. I think it's on it's 4th season??

    Stay away from Reign, a very fictionalized retelling of Mary, Queen of Scots. So bad that I was waiting for someone to whip out a cell phone from their bodice, or see a wristwatch during a awful sword fight. But I do have to admit, the guy playing Sebastian (Bash) is HOT!! I stopped about 5 episodes in - it didn't get any better, and in some ways was worse than the pilot lead me to believe.

    During the Christmas lull, I'm thinking of watching The Wire. Another old show that I really liked was Homicide: Life on the Street(s), also set in Baltimore. Great actors, good writing, realistic story arcs.

    Recently listened to Seth McFarlane talking about the science of Family Guy with Neil DeGrass Tyson. I may have to start watching FG again!

    Hubby liked Narcos.

    Working my way through The Last Kingdom, based on the Bernard Cornwell series. It's set in early British history, when the Vikings or Danes nearly snuffed out England. Sal, I think it's the third season. The most reason season focused on the Viking attack on Paris if that helps.

    I will look again with the correct name!

    The Last Kingdom is a different series on BBC. I download it on iTunes Vikings is on the History channel and just finish the third season. Sorry for the confusion.

    Vikings is a History Channel show and all three seasons are available on Amazon Prime. One of the best shows ever in my opinion.
