Media Center>Must Watch Series

All this talk about series, how network TV Sucks, and how hard it is to find quality shows, and some excellent shows that fly under the radar, I need a comprehensive review of all the series I need to see.

For good entertainment, I would be willing to buy DVD sets. But I've recently picked up HBOGO by kiping it from my parents, and recently got Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Here is a listing of shows that I currently own or have seen all the episodes of. If it isn't on the list, just assume I haven't seen it.

I work a fuckton, so it is hard for me catch a series while it is on to get it on the DVR, but I recognize the entertainment value and am willing to go after the Must See shows. Accordingly, I'm not necessarily looking for anything that is still running. I'm up for watching stuff that has run its course.

So what say you, Planet? Which shows should I see?

UPDATED for the shows I've seen recently.

I just binged through the 6th season of Alone. It was added to Netflix recently. Just awesome for anyone that is an outdoors and/or survival enthusiast. Can't believe I had not heard to this series.

They put 10 people in the Canadian arctic, 75 miles south of the tree line. You can tap out at any time, also have no idea how many people are remaining. Last person wins $500k. Man, every single one of the people on that show have legit survival skills.

I have been a hiker/backpacker/mountaineering kind of guy for years and I wouldn't hold a candle to pretty much anyone that I watched on that show.

I have the final episode of the Netflix docus-series Lenox Hill left. The snippets of brain surgeries are very cool. I loved The Last Dance, and this has some similar themes of large personalities leading a team to success in their profession. And as exciting as TLD could get, Lenox Hill has these raw intimate looks at families in their most stressful, excruciating moments. Each episode has multiple scenes that are draining.

Who’s watched it? I enjoyed it. Rhys was really REALLY good.

There was more humor in it than I thought there would be. I’m definitely stealing “sitting there as a monument to useless.” :-)

One nit to pick

I thought it was off to a great start, immersive in the milieu without being demonstrative or ostentatious. More of a lived-in world than a period being 'recreated.'

As for the humor, I legit laughed when Lupe, . . . ummm, . . . athletically negotiated Perry off the bed.

Rhys' face while assessing the . . . . evidence, in the morgue, sold the entire premise.

Agreed on all counts.

First couple sentences is a more articulate way of saying what I saw LOL.

I laughed at the Lupe bit too. The parts after too - bit about the tequila and sleeping in her bed. I'm not really sure how she fits into the story, but they spent too much time on her for it just to be ambiance.

Morgue scene was tough.

Spoiler!


Good bit of filmmaking there.

Another thing I neglected to mention, because it was specific to my personal experience, but I just got through binging Bosch in quarantine.

So it was just a couple months ago I spent a whole season with Angel Flight [in modern day] as a central character.
