  • This article popped up in a Flipboard feed. A list of shows to watch if you liked Justified.

    https://www.tvguide.com/news/shows-like-justified-what-to-watch-next-hulu/

    Plenty of ones I already know but agree on their quality which makes me want to check out the others.

    Deadwood Get Shorty Banshee Jett (haven't seen this but looks good) Godless The Shield Hap and Leonard Perpetual Grace Ltd (never heard of it but looks good) Wyonna Earp Longmire



  • @Crucial yep highly recommend Jett and Hap & Leonard.



  • @Bones I Might have a look at that, I like James Purefoy in most things.

    I cant recall if it was Wynona Earp or the Van Helsing series I had a look at (May have been the latter) and didnt bother with.

    Longmire is good (Katee Sackoff) Godless was decent (Michelle Dockery) Deadwood was what made me decide to watch Justified.

    I started Perpetual Grace and just didnt get into it.



  • @taniwharugby James Purefoy with a southern drawl and gay Omar!



  • @Crucial So some of those shows confused me at first as they're not like Justified at all until I clicked that a bunch of them are shows with the actors from Justified. Although some of them still seem weird, not sure what Godless has in common with Justified aside from being "westerns"?

    Anyway, The Detour should be added to that list for Natalie Zea fans.



  • @Nepia yeah I definitely wouldn't put Jett alongside Justified.

    I've actually never heard of it or Perpetual Grace Ltd.



  • @Nepia huh...I felt sure you'd been part of the Carla Gugino conversation. I've mentioned it several times. alt text



  • @Bones TBH, I've never been that keen on her like others in the thread.

  • @Nepia it might change your mind.

    I've got a list of about 25 shows in the pipeline to watch as it is (and I'm wasting a slot rewatching The West Wing ... which is still the most flattering portrayal of Republicans you'll likely ever see, but I really should stop and watch something new) so doubt I'll get round to it. I remember thinking she was really hot back in the Spin City days though. 🙂



  • McMillion$ HBO documentary series about the McDonald's monopoly game scandal of the 90s. Really well done and a great watch so far (two episodes in).

    That's an insane story

    If you read the link it’s does explain the logic. Usually from a writer, actor, source material or theme. Not perfect at all but I thought it was a decent list. Hap and Leonard is good.

    Perpetual Grace is also one I hadn’t heard of. Has Dewy Crowe in it (and Ben Kingsley )

    Dewy was one of my favourite characters in Justified. That episode when he was running around trying to get his kidney back was hilarious.



  • Space Force - it’s not what I hoped for but it’s nowhere near as bad as it’s being made out to be. Some strange character arcs but it’s enjoyable enough to see where it’s going. Oddly the Carell Malkovich paring works. Episode 7 where Malkovich is drunk at his desk, by himself, spitting tacks at his Chinese counterpart is hilarious and creepy.

    It's brilliant



  • Know quite a few on here like the ESPN 30 for 30s and for those that haven’t heard a Bruce Lee one is due for release this week.

    Netflix have a series Snowpiercer based on on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. You may remember the movie Snowpiercer from 2013 which I liked.

    Also the Netflix series has Jennifer Connelly.

    Gave this a go last night. God damn, eat something woman ! You used to have arguably the best natural cans in Hollywood, where are they now you pile of bones ?

    Definitely quite a thought provoking show if you put the absolute implausibly to one side. Two episodes in so far....50/50 on whether it will stay compelling or descend into utter crap.

    Agreed

    And canned it after the first episode. Made that train journey already



  • @MN5 yeah I'm gonna watch ep3 and make my decision from there...

    Carla makes stuff that is potentially quite crap extremely watchable. She just seems to improve with age too.

    negative. Might give it a go. I do enjoy post apocalyptic shows/movies if they're well done. Jury is still very much out on the TV show though.

    Ah, I was hoping to get a comparison of the two. I enjoyed the movie.



  • @Nepia was Captain America in the movie?

    I think it was ok, nothign great, but a decent watch.



  • @taniwharugby said in TV Serieseseses:

    Yup. Directed by Bong Joon Hoo and I think based in a french graphic novel.



  • Finished watching S3 of Killing Eve, which was excellent (apart from ep 1 which was a bit meh, kept getting better and better after that thankfully) ending was rather ambiguous, so it might end there or maybe another season. (Must admit, Villanelle working for M16 might be a laugh...) now I'm watching Flack S2 with Anna Paquin. I enjoy the snark and celebs being thoroughly shitty, but damn it does get bleak at times.

    Just didn't work for me. Gave up after Ep 02

    I'm a big Malkovich & Carell fan but thought they both sucked in this.

    Mindhunter

    Really trying to stick with this as I get to the end of season 1 but FFS it is sedate in its pacing. There are series that are more entertaining.

    Just into second series. We thought last couple of first sagged a bit.

    Stick with it. Focusses on the Atlanta child killings problems they had working with local police and politicians.

    Will do. Starting to find Holden rather irritating!



  • Finished the latest season of Seal Team.

    Still enjoy it for what it is, despite a number of characters being unlikeable, including David Boreanaz as the lead.

    Was getting annoyed that my fave character, Sonny was turned into a dickhead for a few eps though, but fortunately redeemed in the last couple.

    shit i've just realised i never finished the last episode of S2!! i had it on my phone and was watching it on work trips, and then never finished it when i stopped having to fly anywhere.

    You know what i have been watching? Lego Masters with my kids. The people on it are fucking dorks, but the models they create are amazing, and the one that wins the season needs to be seen to be believed.

    We also watch, they're extraordinary. How do you know who wins though???



  • @voodoo I assume as it is an Aussie programme, we are weeks behind in NZ?
