And Matt's out.

You remind me of Grouchy Smurf

I've not read the whole topic, but here are some series I loved over the last years. (and likely most of them are already named)

- Hannibal
- Fear the walking dead
- Dexter
- Black mirror
- Vikings
- Breaking Bad
- Westworld
- Game of Thrones

Yep...
One of my (geeky) favourite things used to be movie marathons - and I'm still yearning for a Star Wars marathon with OH and to argue again about the order we should watch the movies in. We shall do it again when the kids grow up.

And speculation has already started on who might replace Matt in TG.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Not sure if anyone posted about this yet.

I started watching Community after a friend told me about it. And Im hooked. Pretty good humor and quite interesting characters.
Ofcourse, its by the same guy who also does Rick and Morty, so I'm not surprised.

We absolutely loved Community. That being said, the last couple seasons became tiresome, and didn't end up finishing it.




Anybody watch "The Expanse"? Looks very promising, might give it a go this week.

The Staircase, documentary series on Netflix, is brilliant.

Check out Happy! Messed up, brutal, funny...awesome acting. Don't give up after 20 minutes and you'll remember me by the time the 2nd episode finished.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

My latest binge watches that I wholeheartedly recommend:

"A series of unfortunate events". On netflix if you have it, otherwise I can suggest this site for watching on the comupter.
ProjectFreeTv
www.project-free-tv.ag
Also,"Dirk Gentleys' Holistic Detective Agency", taken from the book by Douglas Adams. Can also be watched on the above link. Just as a by the way, I use this site most of the time to watch my overseas programmes and have no problems with viruses or such, using adblock and my good anti virus programme.
I shan't try and describe them,I simply stumbled across them and they just appealed to me.
Neil Patrick Harris plays a major role in the first recommendation. I didn't know him from anything else, but if you have ever seen "How I met your Mother", that's a well known series he is in. I am enamoured of the man, so very well done.
