Watched the complete 2 seasons (22 episodes) of Romanzo Criminale, an Italian crime series set in 1970's Rome. Good gritty criminal action, though the white subtitles are often hard to read for these chatty Italian mobsters.

Also watched the three part series, Carlos, a fictionalized account of the Venezuelan terrorist, Ilyich Ramírez Sánchez, popularly known as Carlos the Jackal.

Both are very good TV series available on the Film Struck streaming service.

It's fun. Love the characters and Mad Sweeney is becoming my favorite. Gillian Anderson as Media is pretty darn good too.

The Keepers. 9/10. Dark and disturbing but engrossing.

Into the Badlands.

Nice little story and really awesome that they put together a "kung fu movie" style fight scene every show.


I have been meaning to try "The Son"....anyone watching?

We really loved the hell out of Downward Dog on ABC. Maybe you have to be a dog person to get it, but it was both incredibly touching, and hilarious.
Also enjoying Great News.
Looking forward to season 2 of People of Earth starting very soon!

We liked the Great Indoors - it was pretty terrible but so watchable. Sadly it's been canned.

Highly recommend people with Netflix watch the Danish show Rita. It's subtitled, but it's pretty great. Hits home pretty good if you're a teacher or in the field of education as well.

Loving Season 7 of Game of Thrones so far. Since the series is wrapping up in 10 or so more episodes they aren't wasting any time dragging the plot out.

It's been interesting. I think I liked last season more though.

Not really a series, but "Big Bang Theory" is the only network TV I carve time out to watch 10/10.
Netflix offerings I have watched or am watching:
Sons of Anarchy 8/10
Frontier 9/10
Longmire 9/10
Better Call Saul 8/10
The Crown 8/10 (Mrs. Stormedge pick)
Hart of Dixie 6/10 (Mrs. Stormedge pick)
Switched at Birth 7/10 (Mrs. Stormedge pick)
Futurama 6/10 (mindless, repetitious zaniness)
Plainly I should ride more.

Likewise. I seem to be in a retro mode. I also like "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Mash."

I have one episode left of TRAPPED season 1. Excellent crime suspense drama set in Iceland.

Just started Stranger Things. So far so good. It's like X-Files meets the Goonies.

Same here.

We're about to watch Grimm again, and I've been alternating whatever our usual show is with Northern Exposure (NE). I just bought the second season of NE, it ought to show up today or manana. We have one more episode of season six of Game of Thrones, manana will be an episode of NE, and then then we start Grimm the day after that.

Been that way for a while now. It's getting to the point where I can't watch my fave scifi shows because I've been doing them once a year, for years.

The 'buzz' about this years new scifi is not promising, but sometimes a show will get off to a rocky start, and then get things right. At least, that's what I am hoping. I'd love for that new scifi comedy to be good.

I haven't watched a TV series since "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip" went off the air. Which apparently was 10 years ago. (!)

I'd probably rate that one an 8/10.
