TV Series

In an effort to keep a record for myself, and share with folks what series I am watching and why, this is the list of things I have watched, hated, and are on my list. Do note that almost all of these are police serial type related (and when they are sci-fi they are really cop/bad buy shows somewhere at heart. Also note that I have no problem with subtitles, and in fact I know them. Some of these, like Breaking Bad and so on are probably more violent than some folks can handle. I come from the "if it makes a damn good dramatic thriller, do what you gotta do" train of thought. So I'm more a Luther than I am a Midsommer Murders kind of gal, if you will. Also, I sure there are things watched and not on the list, and I will add those as I remember them. With no further ado:

Amazon Prime Watched (a couple via Acorn)

Rebekka Martinson (Subtitles)
Jack Ryan (good show, less great if you read said books)

On my watchlist:

The Crime

Wild Disctrict
Under Cover
Hap and Leonard
Peaky Blinders. I will get there, I will.

And way to many others to name (I keep watched seasons on my watchlist so I know when new seasons are coming)

Didn't like or didn't follow through:

River ( I love, adore, love, Nicola Walker so the fact that I left this show..)
The new Twin Peaks
The OA
Stranger Things

Regular TV shows On Demand or now on another channel (not all cop shows, as such). I have not kept track of all of these, so I add them as I think of them:

The Wire (best drama of all time, one guy says most important seires of the 21st century, number one on like ten lists. It starts slow, but you'll be grateful later that it did. Watch.The.Wire. Plus which every other cop show you will ever see will have one of these guys in it somewhere.
The West Wing
Rectify (on Sundance on Demand)
Sons of Anarchy
The Shield
Mad Men (obviously not a cop show)
Six feet under
Babylon Five (no idea where to watch these days)
Battlestar Galactica (new  not old)
Friday Night Lights. (about to watch it again)
Breaking Bad
Deadwood (they're bringing this back, it seems)
Prodigal Son

Could not watch, did not like"

Oz (I know, I know, it's probably the second best show of all time)
Lost (I don't get it and never did)
Catherine the Great (I love Helen Mirren which should tell you all you need to know).


  1. Love your blog and we have similar taste in tv shows (and similar political views for that matter!).

  2. CometTV shows Babylon 5 on weeknights. It's on broadast TV ... no idea if it's on cable, but you may be able to stream it.

    1. It's just recently shown up again on amazon prime!

  3. You might like Amazon Prime's "Silent Witness" series.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from others, and I also love to hear all points of view.. Just leave the profanity and insults at home, OK? Thanks!!
