« on: October 27, 2014, 02:58:04 PM »

I was looking for something new to watch since some shows are ending now. I loved Ray Donovan and The Bridge.
I power-watched House of Cards, which was really good. I have never seen The Wire so may get that from Netflix.
I also heard Once Upon A Time is addicting.
Any other recommendations?

Pawn Stars -I hate most reality shows but like the interesting items that walk thru their door and how they provide historical facts. Also like the "old man" and how he doesn't put up with squat from the others.

Turner Classic Movie Channel -particularly old "film noirs" and the fact that it's commercial free!

The Kelly File
The First 48 Hours -I was never in law enforcement. Let's just say that my past life involved a lot of investigating and who-dunnits.
Cops -I am always amazed by the patience and courage these cops have with the idiots and meth heads they must encounter.
Bait Car -love watching "instant justice" being served.

I very much like to watch the History Channel.
Some of the stories take only about one hour
and I appreciate how illuminating many of them are in that very short time...

I sometimes watch on youtube the most fascinating stories about US-crime-investigations...
and their way of investigation is often very illuminating and extremely helpful to learn for anyone
who might be "getting stuck" whilst investigating some questions in their own field ...
I particularly liked an US-series shown on youtube, where two ladies, a lawyer and a forensic investigator
exhibited a most intelligent way how to investigate very professionally and their special way of investigation
inspired me very much, in how to tackling some of my own questions and how to get answers in my own field...

Right now it's American Horror Story. I recently watched all 8 seasons of Weeds and all 3 seasons of United States of Tara on Netflix and loved both of them.

I loved The United States of Tara!  Are you and I the only ones who watched that show?

I have discovered this on u-tube and it is most interesting:
Homicide Hunter Season with Lt. J. Kenna "chairing" and explaining different Episodes...
For example : 3 Episode 13 - Blood Sisters ...
Lt. J. Kenna  is one of those rare persons, who is able to logically "sum it all up" in very few words without any "frills"...
... and because he "has practically seen it all", he appears to have become quite philosophical about "things"...
Very impressive...

I love Revenge.  We have watched it from day 1.  Season 2 is good, season 3 is getting a little on the ridiculous side and the current season is just getting ludicrous.  But hey, I've gotten this far and I want to see it through to the end.

My current favorite is Empire.  It's on FOX.  It just started right after the holidays.  You can catch up on Fox on Demand.

I've just finished watching the first season of Broadchurch on Netflix!  I LOVE that show!  Season 2 starts here on BBC America next month.  Can't wait!

Cattlekid, I am also really enjoying Empire!

I'm following Justified; this is its last season. 

We've started watching Backstrom on Fox.  I love Scandinavian crime books/series and TV series, and Backstrom is supposed to be based on a character in one of those series, and I'm not sure I like it.  There are things I really like about it, but Rainn Wilson seems to be trying too hard; I suspect he has to grow into and mellow down his character.

I like the new comedy Fresh off the Boat.

On Netflix, I've just finished The Politician's Husband (with Broadchurch's David Tennant and Emily Mortimer, two faves of mine) and will be starting The Fall (Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame).

There are so many good things on offer but not enough time.  I can't sit still long enough to binge watch, although with temps outside in the single digits, I guess this is the perfect time for that.

Moosemom its the last episode of season 2 broad church tonight, I think will be a cliffhanger to mean a season 3. The 2nd season has had a lot of criticism but I guess it would be difficult to live up to the first season. I'm enjoying it tho.

I've been reading in the online editions of some British newspapers about the criticism of Season 2 (while avoiding spoilers!), but that's not going to stop me from enjoying it when it comes next month.  I can understand how most people might most enjoy the "whodunit" aspect of a show, but I am also interested in the aftermath.  What happens in a small town after such a terrible thing has happened?  Can't wait!  You must let me know if the finale tonight does indeed end with a cliffhanger.  I'd love a season 3!

Just watched the broad church season n 2 finale. No cliffhanger but said there will be a season 3 :) you must let me know what u think of it when it airs in the US, 2 storylines run this season, the aftermath obviously and the case Hardy didn't solve that haunted him before he came to broad church. So no idea what they,all do with season 3. Broad church is filmed not that far from us and last week we went for a walk on the beach there and saw the newsagents, beaver scouts hall and the police building (which is actually an apartment block!) It was freezing cold but think will go back in the summer!!

Oh other thing am watching is final season of the mentalist

Lainie, that is so cool that you live that close to fictious Broadchurch, and I am so glad there will be a season three.  I will be sure to give you my review of season two.

The series finale of The Mentalist aired just last week over here.  It ended on a sweet note.

Are there any other series from the UK that you like anf think might find their way over here?  Do you watch Peaky Blinders?  I have that on my Netflix queue.  Oh, hubbie and I are watching Grantchester which follows right after Downton Abbey.  When I was in the UK last October, I saw the first two eps on ITV and thought that US viewers might like it, so I was really pleased to see it come to our telly boxes!

Whenever I have time, I continue to watch (on u-tube) different episodes
of the Homicide Hunter Season with Lt. J. Kenna "chairing" and explaining different cases ...
I wish we had someone like him - with such a knife-sharp logic - playing a decisive part at Scotland Yard ...
... could be a blessing for the country... and we could perhaps have many cases solved ...

Forgot , also in the UK out now is 'Murder in The First.' Am enjoying that!

Moosemom I watched Grantchester, quite enjoyed it, if u liked that you'd prob like the detective series 'Inspector George Gently.' Don't know if that's in US?

Other British recommendations from netflix form me are Luther (detective), Sherlock, Whitechapel ans 'Jonatathan Creek (bit of an old series, the new ones aren't so good, when they change one of the main characters but a diff take on crime solving (a reporter and a guy who makes up magic tricks solve unsolvable crimes, plenty of laughs between the 2 main characters. ) They r all on netflix UK dunno about US?

karol we watched  while ago 'The Tunnel' which sounds like 'The Bridge', a body found in the middle of channel tunnel so involves both UK and French detectives.

Have watched the Killing, (US version) not yet seen the 4th series.

Am waiting for the next series of Castle at the mo, and am watching season 4 of Grimm and Supernatural.

Kind of embarrassed to say but I alos watching season 5 of dance Moms , love it lol!!!

What would u all say your all time favourite show is? From whenever?
