Watchmen was my favorite this year.
The rest not in any order:
Last week With John Oliver
Game of Thrones
Steve, many of my friends watched CHERNOBYL and came away impressed. I like THE SIMPSONS but I don’t watch it consistently. I have a Blu-ray set of the first season of BILLIONS but haven’t watched it yet.
We watched the five episodes of CHERNOBYL last week (HBO On Demand) and were impressed too, but I had to mark it down a little for the ways it deviated from, you know, the facts.
Jeff, I’ve read about Chernobyl so watching a mini-series about it didn’t interest me. But my friends tell me it was well done.
Curious about CITY ON A HILL.
Patti, I though Kevin Bacon was terrific in CITY ON A HILL. He plays a corrupt FBI investigator. SHOWTIME has renewed CITY ON A HILL for a second season.
No interest in CITY ON A HILL and refuse on principle to watch anything about Fox News. We don’t have CBS All Access or Disney Plus, so those are out. Thanks for reminding me about GOOD OMENS, which I’d totally forgotten.
Last Week Tonight With John Oliver
Gentleman Jack (British)
Dead to Me
The Ministry of Time (Spain)
Probably others I’ve forgotten.
Jeff, I really enjoyed GOOD OMENS. I wanted to like RUSSIAN DOLL more than I did. Maybe the second season will be better.
I’m wondering whether anyone else will admit to watching 2-3 episodes of “Watchmen”, realizing they didn’t have the slightest clue what the hell was going on, and quit. I’d never read the graphic novel, but had seen Zack Snyder’s ten year old movie version and remembered absolutely nothing about it. What made my disappointment especially galling was that Damon Lindelof was responsible for two of my favorite tv shows EVER, “Lost” and “The Leftovers”. I had pretty much the same experience watching the first few episodes of “The Wire” years ago. But with that one I went back and tried again a year or so later and zipped right through it.
Michael, it takes a 3-4 episodes to figure out WATCHMEN. It think the confusion was intentional.
I assume these are all series. Since you didn’t list them, and the stations/networks/channels/providers they are on, I have no idea where on would see these things. We’re watching a little more TV these days, but none of these seems to show up when I look. I do know one of them is on DisneyPlus, which we don’t have. Guess I’ll read a BOOK.
Rick, here’s the breakdown: WATCHMEN (HBO)
GOOD OMENS (AMAZON PRIME Video)
THE MANDALORIAN (Disney+)
STAR TREK Discovery (CBS All Access)
CITY ON A HILL (SHOWTIME)
THE LOUDEST VOICE (SHOWTIME)
Who do you like in the games today?
Rick, we’re taking Patrick to the Airport and then going out to dinner. No games for us today.
Maybe it’s time to reread WATCHMEN, as I have the original graphic novel.
Rick, I read THE WATCHMEN series when it first appeared. I liked the movie version, but the new TV series is even better.
Oh, on TV: local news (half hour) on CBS affiliate, PBS Newshour, some Pro football games…
