I really enjoyed that series, though by the end it felt very "cheap romance novel" to me.

Totally agree, but I still couldn't stop watching because I wanted to see how it played out, and specifically,
I wanted to see if the characters I came to hate got their just rewards, lol. They did, so it was worth it.

Ooh-my sisters-in-law we’re just in Italy and kept thanking Stanley Tucci and I couldn’t figure out why-we will have to watch.

We are loving the Netflix show Ragnarok, which is in Norwegian. I’m complete contrast, so excited that GBBO is back!

Thanks for the good comment on Ragnarok. Started watching it and am really enjoying it. The main actor is fascinating to watch but the others are very good too. Not a fan of fantasy shows but this is so low key but well done...it keeps you hanging on.

I just finished this last night. I found it strangely addictive. My wife hated it and left the the room when I watched it.

Is anyone watching What We Do in the Shadows on FX/Hulu? I love it. It's based on the movie, about a bunch of vampire roommates making their way in modern-day Auckland. The TV series has relocated them to Staten Island. Very funny.

Just finished Poldark (via Amazon Prime) last night.

Now we need to find another British program. We're enjoying the British stuff (the storytelling, the costumes, the photography) so much more than American-made programming.
That was one of the best series I have ever watched in my lifetime. I loved it.

Did you find something else equally great?

I am struggling to find some new shows to watch. I am so tired of the cop shows on the networks.

I loved Suits. Too bad it ended. Loved Breaking Bad but really disliked Walter by the end and had no sympathy for him whatsoever.

Any ideas?

I keep waiting for the new Bosch and for Mrs. Maisel's next season. What is the deal with Mrs. Maisel?

Hoping for another season of Jack Ryan.

If I have to watch another FBI Most Wanted or the other FBI shows another night, I think I will go crazy. It's all so depressing.

Never got into Outlander. Our daughter loves it.

1883 on Paramount + is the background of Yellowstone. That is one great show.

I also loved Longmire. Thought I wouldn't like it after a few episodes but really got into it. That is on Netflix.

Did you see the Mrs. Maisel season that premiere in feb/March? We watched it over a weekend & was underwhelmed by it.

If you liked Poldark, we also liked Outlander, Brigerton & the Gilded Age from similar time periods.

I’m also waiting for the next season of Jack Ryan. What takes Amazon so long to film 6-10 episodes?

Here are few more British programs that I don't think have been mentioned in this thread:
1. River - Stellen Skarsgard plays the lead, and is very good in this as a disturbed detective. This one is a bit odd, and will have you scratching your head at times. But keep watching all the way to the end. The ending (the dance scene on the street) is fabulous, and it's only then that you realize that it's a love story within a cop show.
2. The Courier - This is a movie rather than a series. We're suckers for most things that have Benedict Cumberbatch in them. He's a very talented actor. After you watch this, you may want to search for other things he's been in. He is different is every movie or series that we have seen.
3. We're currently working our way through Silent Witness. This is also quite different. It's a crime series, but the heroes are forensic pathologists who piece together solutions to crimes based on their findings from examination of the dead body (the "silent witness" to the crime). Fair warning: the post mortems do get gritty at times, so this might be a bit much for the squeamish.

We didn't like Yellowstone until we watched 1883. Now we are watching Yellowstone and have about 4 episodes left to go on season 4. Usually if the tv is on its playing you tube music or videos that interest us.

Been watching NYPD blue and Sons of Anarchy. It's going to take me a while to make it through all these episodes.

I binge-watched the series last November/December. I also felt Walter got what he deserved, but that was the point.

My family, except for me, had been watching This Is Us since it started in 2016. The series ends next month, and DW wanted me to catch up so we could watch the last episodes together. So I recently spent a month watching the whole series to date (99 episodes). Got caught up a week ago.
