Going from The Wire into Breaking Bad has been pretty great. Heck, going back 6 months my binging has gone Sopranos, True Detective, The Wire, Breaking Bad. About as good of a six months of binging as you can get, IMO.

If you then do Better Call Saul, you will be in binge heaven!

May I suggest NYPD Blue?

A few quirky comedies from the UK:

Derry Girls on Netflix - set in the early 90's in Northern Ireland during The Troubles. Really funny once you pick up on the accent. Great soundtrack.
Stath Lets Flats on HBO - good one if you are a fan of the Ricky Gervais version of The Office

If you guys like The Wire, check out The Shield.
You can thank me later.

Been watching Resident Alien lately. It just finished its first season run on the SyFy Network. Kind of a Sci Fi "dramady" (think kind of a cross between X-Files and Fargo) but it is really funny.

I loved the show but was a bit disappointed by the exit. I don't know why but it felt empty.

Been telling everyone I can for years to watch this show. Shield is my #1 show ever. They've never been good about getting it out and available though. Think it has finally gotten on Hulu in the last year or so though, if I remember correctly.

Shameless has been a great show, heck of run they had. It kind of floundered a bit the last few years and I did a lot of eye rolling on some story lines the last few years, but it was still good. I'd call the finale 'fine'. I'd have preferred more firmly tied up but overall it did the job and wasn't awful/stupid or anything to ruin the show's legacy. Basing it on Frank's dying makes a lot of sense. I was surprised they couldn't get Fiona back for the ending or address her at all, basically seemed weird to do this whole year basically acting like she didn't exist. I saw they've had a lot of issues with filming during covid though so have to cut some slack that they did the best they could given the situation.

She was originally planned to have a large role in the finale, but they were filming and there was another lockdown issue ordered in NY and Cali...so she couldn't get to the set to film.

She was going to come and help them sort out Franks "estate." I was kinda hoping Lip would find that bar of Gold in the backyard...or they'd sell the painting, but I guess them getting rich at the end of the show would really kinda ruin the show.

Staged on Hulu is hilarious.

Letterkenny and Staged are two of the funniest shows that I just somehow stumbled on.

Wife and I just started watching that recently. We aren't very far in, but we both think it's really funny.

There is still OZ and NYPD Blue to watch, can't go wrong with either of those gems...

Another great show: Justified!

Yeah, it's been easy to binge 2/3 episodes a night for the past several months for obvious reasons. Still some significant stuff on my list like Six Feet Under, possibly Oz, maybe a Deadwood re-watch so that I can watch the 'finale movie' in the context of the rest of the show (and not with years in between to try and remember what had happened!).

So, still some good stuff out there.

I'm also intrigued by Nat Geo's Genius series- I liked the Einstein season 1, but has anyone watched this beyond that? I started the Antonio Banderas as Picasso season 2, and it seemed far more dull than the first season....

I really liked Succession on HBO.

I loved Justified a lot more than I thought I would. Ditto for The Americans and Ozark.

Still going, they're going to do at least one more season but who knows the timeframe now of when they can film.

They've started filming last November. It's gonna be split into two mini seasons of 7 episodes each. From what I've read best guess is the first mini season will come out at the end of this year.
