Lockdown binge watching ideas.....

SONAR-BENDER

War Hero
Commencing Week 3 of our lockdown. With all the (shitty little) jobs almost completed around the house, and unable to go out for cement or plaster etc for other bigger tasks, I have to seek out alternative avenues of 'entertainment'. This leads me to the ubiquitous 'box sets' that are available. We have Netflix, Prime, ITV Hub and limited live terrestrial UK TV and YouTube etc. And the free Sky stuff, for what it's worth!

Therefore, inspired by folk phoning in to Sunday Brunch with their recommendations, what do you lot recommend?

I can recommend:

Breaking Bad
Better Call Saul (the BB spin off)
The Man in the High Castle
Bosch
The Marvellous Mrs Maisel
Narcos
Orange is the new Black

and just started Hunters.


With a jump - GO!

We are mid way through Dexter.

Sons of Anarchy

Hard part is staying away from IMDB to see the full series listings and synopsis of each episode.

The Blacklist may get a re-watch.
The Good Doctor for WolfPack.

Before lock-down I managed to get 2 new Amazon 4K Firesticks and have jail broke the pair of 'em and side-loaded them with an assortment of Apps/Streaming Services that have sufficient content to keep us going until whenever.
A bit too cold to start my mass exterior paint a.t.t. so I have been coerced into watching a few episodes of Call the Midwife.
This is no time for arguments or fights for the TV remote.

You can try this on various devices:


I sometimes stream "Unsolved Mysteries" hosted by Robert Stack of The Untouchables TV series. A fair mix of content, and it's free.

I never thought I would like "Game of Thrones" but quickly got hooked and eventually watched every series and every episode.
Boardwalk Empire on Sky was OK too. I've watched all that.

Wayhay! Result! I’ve just watched the last episode of Narcos and seen Pablo meet his end (clever use of old news clips too!). Then when it finished, it went straight to ‘next episode'. So there is more to watch!

Paradise PD has got a few laughs out of me. Adult cartoon series about a small toon police departmen.
Hap and Leonard is worth a watch.
If you like your Sci-fi then the Expanse is not to be missed.

"Devs". Just started watching it.
A bit of a head compressor and not a mini series that can be watched whilst doing other things.
Not binge-watchable as yet but I am waiting for the next episode so that I can perhaps get some idea as to what exactly the hell is goin' on.

f you like your Sci-fi then the Expanse is not to be missed.
Watched the first 2 series on Netflix - then it moved to Amazon Prime. Pissed off as I don't have a Prime account. Might have to hack the daughter in laws account.

Just got Disney+ so the wife can watch all the old disney cartoons.
(And I can watch Star Wars, Marvel etc whilst I'm supposed to be working from home)
