    IMDB - started watching Hanna, Leverage, and started over on Boston Legal again - I can't believe they got away with that sexual stuff back on regular TV over 10 years ago.

    Queen's Gambit - netfilx

    4 eps in.
    Not sure why but thought it just had a bit to do about chess.
    It has EVERYTHING to do about chess, all the other things are just a little bit.
    Once my brain wrapped around that I have like it.

    Just finished Murder Maps. I never thought I’d say this but I wish there was more history and geography in it! They did a really good job in describing the vibe of Brighton and Notting Hill during the periods they were covering. Map feature was cool visually.

    My wife got me hooked on The Crown season 4 which introduces Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher to the series. Perfect for binging.

    Family Affair, Dragnet, and three stooges - Airytv. No commercials either.

    Found, much to my wifes dismay, that Pluto has a 90210 channel (who cares!) that also plays Melrose place reruns. I tell her all the time "she doesn't understand good tv".

    Working through Haunting of Hill House. I’ve seen the movie several times and this is an interesting variation on the movie. It’s spooky but not gore-y so I can watch it with my youngest.

    Not nearly as scary as Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. Real life is much scarier! I never followed the Bundy stuff until now.

    Prospect and The Crown. Hard to find a more disparate pair than those.

    I just took a nap and woke up to hubs finishing a Chinese sci-fi movie. Now we're watching Floor is Lava. I think we only have a couple episodes left...

    Since I don't have a subscription to the Hallmark Channel, filling December with old movies and musicals.

    This week: Funny Face,

    Theme is weird for 2020, but dancing and clothes cannot be denied.

    A fun diversion!

    The only real thing I miss since cutting the cord is Hallmark movies, especially the Christmas ones. The Marvista ones on Netflix/Hulu just don't compare.

    I am watching a six episode mini series “The Undoing” on HBO. Omg...two episodes left and keeps you guessing “who done it”. Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, and Donald Sutherland are the main characters.....superb acting!

    It sometimes gets hard to remember them all, but here goes:

    Netflix -

    Sense8 - Finished it. Not too bad, once you get the premise. Some gaps that the viewer has to fill in on their own. Two orgy scenes.
    The Last Kingdom - Starting Season 4. I like it. Lots of action. How many Dark Ages dramas are out there?
    The Crown - Season 4, Episode 1. Just started it. It is really magnificently produced. Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher is brilliant.

    Showtime -

    Penny Dreadful - Season 3. Lots of blood and guts.
    The Good Lord Bird - Loosely based on John Brown's rebellion. Excellent period piece. Not for those easily offended by language.

    HBO -

    The Undoing - Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, Donald Sutherland, that would be enough to make me watch right there. The plot is excellent murder mystery stuff. Each episode leaves doubts in your mind as to who really done it.

    Amazon Prime -

    Humans - Season 2. A bit like the original WestWorld. Set in the near future, robot servants gain consciousness and get ready to kick some human ass. Well done, I like it.
    Mr. Robot - Finally, after a 2 year wait, Season 4 is back. Rami Malek continues his quest to bring down the Dark Army.

    To follow up on The Queen's Gambit, I think this is why people think we are in the golden age of television and streaming.

    No major 3 letter network TV entertainment channel would touch this, I doubt basic cable would either. Maybe HBO or a slight chance of Showtime would do that show. But Netflix? We'll gamble with you, we give you a wad of cash to make the show and you can stay true to the source material without the network chiefs rewriting your screenplays, and then we'll drop it on the masses who watch episode after episode and who sometimes don't even use the bathroom or eat during the entire binge-a-thon.

    There's really nobody doing that for thirteen bucks a month. Except maybe Amazon Prime who throws in a retail empire in with your subscription fees.
