The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

TV Recommendation Open Thread

Let’s see:

  • I finished The Sopranos and The Shield. I started the Wire, which seems good, but I may need to pause that to get a bit of distance from the prior two.
  • I’m enjoying BoJack Horseman. It’s not the greatest comedy, but it’s amusing. (The credits are surprisingly poignant). About halfway done, it’s growing on me.  Probably finish these this week.
  • Almost caught up on Supernatural. Watching that with the Boy.
  • I’m not optimistic about Dr. Who, although Capaldi may rescue it.
  • Once they hit Netflix I’ll finish How I Met Your Mother (inertia) and continue Arrow. Did Agents of Shield pick up (I gave up after 3 episodes, but the TaoLing is 11, so it may be a watch together thing).

I’ve pretty much blown through all the recent movies I want to see. So, the Queue is weak and need assistance. Remember, I just have Netflix these days (except for a few series I buy from Amazon).

  1. A Field in England was a recent enjoyable watch.

  2. Also, recently blew through the first two seasons of Vikings (History Channel). For the most part, quite good.

  3. Agents of Shield was hit and miss at firt, but when about halfway through the Captain America movie came out, the series really turned up a couple of notches.

  4. Agree on Vikings. Sherlock (BBC) is good, and Luther (BBC), though I needed subtitles to enjoy the latter.

  5. Highly recommend Borgen (mix of political maneuvering and relationships, from Denmark). I think there were four seasons, and the show is now over. Les Revenants is a really well-done French series about people who wish their loved ones could return to them and what happens when they do; I think the second season is currently in production. Both series use subtitles.

    • I liked Les Revenants. Not great, but solid.

  6. Check out Rick and Morty if you haven’t. I think you can still watch them for free on the Adult Swim website. It’s only 11 half hour episodes (first one is a little weak) so it won’t add much to the queue.
