    I thought there was a thread of this title previously but I couldn’t find it.

    So I’ve started watching the “Good Wife” for the second or third time, and I’m really enjoying it good storylines and acting.

    What are you watching?

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.
    Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.

    The “new” CSI Vegas just watched episode 4, it’s not bad at all compared to the original.

    Other things include, The Blacklist, FBI, FBI Most Wanted and FBI International.  NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and NCIS Hawaii, Chicago PD, Med and Fire, The Good Doctor, What we do in The Shadows, Blue Bloods, Seal Team, New Amsterdam, Doom Patrol and Law & Order SVU and Organised Crime.

    Not a single UK TV show in there!!.

    There's room for all God's creatures, right next to the mash and gravy 🙂

    Phaedra I used to watch the “Black list” and “Seal Team” but for some reason I’ve stopped, don’t know why.

    I’ve seen the good wife and thought it was very good. I’ve just watched This is Us on Amazon Prime and thought that was excellent. Not my usual show as I like crime, drugs, guns, car chases etc but This is Us is all about family and they tackle loads of big issues along the way. Worth a look.

    Recently I’ve watched breaking bad for the second time which I loved. Definitely in the top tier of all time tv shows for me.

    I’m going to watch the sopranos for the second time but I need to be in the right mood. There’s a prequel film to the sopranos which looks very good and I want to see that when I can.

    I also like tv shows about newspapers or news channels so The Newsroom, The Morning Show, Press, were all interesting to me

    I’m not currently watching any tv shows and I’m on the lookout for my next one. Succession is on my radar as many people have said I’ll like it. Not sure if that will be my next one yet

    Watching a real mixed bag at the moment; all of ’em recorded because the live transmissions are at the wrong time for us.:

    Shetland; The Brokenwood Mysteries;  The Coroner and Last Detective (re-runs); and foreign stuff like Paris police 1900, Nordic Murders and Beck. Also new series of Endeavour and Vera when they finally get shown. Waiting on new series of Shakespeare and Hathaway and Mallorca Files.

    Mrs T continues to watch Countdown. I cannot stand it since Revenant Robinson took over. All you get is Annie talking and looking like a zombie.

    I am watching hunter x hunter filler lists. One of the best anime series full of action and thriller. Hunter × Hunter was a popular and record-breaking anime series that was broadcasted from 2011 to 2014. In the main, the time of Hunter x Hunter 2011 has an aggregate of 148 episodes, and they were broadcasted in Japan.

    I dipped into manga a few years ago: Akira { obviously} and, especially, Black Butler come to mind.  Not really watched any general anime beyond episode 1 of some ‘Bounty Hunter in Space’ type series, on Amazon, that didn’t engage me.  I’m still gearing myself up to watch Grave of the Fireflies because I know it’s brilliant, but it’s not exactly a laugh riot.

    Was watching ITV’s Ipcress File. Cracking good production. Great story, sharp characterisations and just a delight to look at. Hope they make another series. Still working at understanding/following Killing Eve. Getting very surreal not to say downright weird, particularly the music.

    Favourite recorded show is the original The Prisoner from 1967. Really stands the test of time. Never realised just how advanced it was, even for the 60s.

    Anyone else spotted that Amazon have just added pretty much all the ‘Bond’ films?  We’ve started watching them in order and last night it was You Only Live Twice (with Donald Pleasence, and cat, as my favourite incarnation of Blofeld), so tonight it should be On Her Majesty’s Secret Service with George Lazybee.

    Connery was ‘my’ Bond, in the same way the John Pertwee was ‘my’ Doctor Who.  Never rated Roger Moore in the role, but I do like Daniel Craig’s – looking forward to those.

    Regardless of actor playing 007, what’s your favourite Bond film? Mine’s got to be From Russia… Good story and great characters. Robert Shaw was just brilliant as Red Grant. And Lotte Lenya as Rosa Klebb? What was Lenya doing in such a role? She was already a cult figure for her, some would say avant-garde, work with husband Kurt Weill and his mate Brecht. Still, she made Klebb into a cult of her own.

    While we’re on the subject, who do you reckon is the best Bond we never had? My money’s on Sam Neill. Aside from acting talents, he even looked like Fleming’s Bond, right down to the “lock of unruly hair over forehead”. Only problem was. when he could have done the role, he was probably too busy with Reilly Ace of Spies.

    Aye, it took me a minute to recognise the platinum blond Robert Shaw.  I’m afraid he’s always be the notorious scene-stealer ‘Quint’ in Jaws for me, which is shameful on my part considering his Henry VIII in A Man for All Seasons.

    My favourite Bond film is currently Goldfinger, though Moonraker (as foolishly diverting as it’s namesake and often considered an abomination by serious Bond aficionados) has a place in my heart, probably more from associated memories of watching it at the cinema with my dad and older brother.  But I’m not wedded to Goldfinger as my final choice – as I said, I’m looking forward to seeing the somewhat more ‘serious’ later Bond films again.  I haven’t seen any of the Daniel Craig’s yet, but my sister (a keen fan of Chuck Norris) rates them highly.

    I wish I hadn’t seen all the Daniel Craig Bond films just so I could watch them for the first time again. Casino Royale is excellent and one of the best bond films ever. Quantum of Solace gets a bit of stick but it just follows on from Casino Royale so I just think of it as one long film split into two.

    The Craig bonds have loads of action and a lot more violence than the others. Apparently they saw the success of the Jason Bourne films and copied that style

    Mr Shaw certainly made Quint a character to remember. However, those of advanced years like me will never forget Shaw as Dan Tempest in the B&W 1950s TV series The Buccaneers. Lots of swash and a fair amount of buckle too. Nice little ship as well.
