Watched in the past few months
  • all of The Good Place with baffled enjoyment.

  • Game of Thrones just because everyone else watched it (peer pressure!)

  • The Get Down, I liked most of it, except the plot

  • Dirk Gently I was even OK with the plot

  • eta: Crazyhead which was very Buffy-ish for me, with more explicit sex

  • teengirl also binge-watched Skam a Norwegian high school ensemble drama, and is showing it to her friends

  • various superhero and space opera movies

Watching
  • Slings and Arrows, legit on youtube! - five episodes in & the fam is hooked

  • Doctor Who, 12 and Bill, who is great. The manic horror aspect is not my favorite.

  • Timewasters modern black British jazz band flung back to the 1920s, random but fun

  • Brooklyn 99 - we are halfway through season four, it's teengirl's happy place during her senior year of highschool and college applications

  • Our annual rewatch of LOTR -- this time with the actor commentary, which she finds amusing and I find very nostalgic for Lotrips (I love everyone in this room!)
  • </li>

Going to watch
  • Tremé - as we still have HBO and I bought the first season because I kept seeing parts of it in hotel rooms while traveling and loving it

  • Black Sails the chorus of recommendations is so big!

  • Suggestions?

Slings and Arrows is wonderful - it's been a few years, so I'd really like to rewatch it. I even have it on dvd. Assuming my ancient DVD player will even work...

I've just re-watched the first 3 series of Peaky Blinders so that I can watch the recently aired series 4. The violence is a bit disturbing sometimes, but Cillian Murphy is mesmerizing as Tommy Shelby. A cautious recommendation?

For something completely different: I also enjoyed the Christmas special of Call the Midwife, and would like to do a complete rewatch from the very beginning. Recommended without reservations!

Not sure if I can handle Peaky Blinders but I will give it a try.

Call the Midwife is great, the rest of the family is scared of all the screaming though!

PS can lure you towards Dreamwidth? LJ's evil overlords scare me.
