We have only watched streaming TV for almost 10 years now. No broadcast TV w/ comercials at all (ABC, NBC, CBS, etc). So every now and then we find a complete series from regular TV that we enjoy. We just finished watching "The Americans". It's a cold war era espionage series that originally aired ~2013 or so. We really enjoyed it.

Well, we're done for now. Heist is over, but apparently there's a continuation which my wife decided to pull the plug on. Clap emoticon

The kid and I will have to find something else to criticize. Laughing emoticon

I've never seen a show where not only that I 'm frustrated that the characters are killed off so seldomly. Personally I'd want to do it myself. God, I swear I can shoot better than the whole Spanish gendarmarie/military/special forces or whatever they are. 500 rounds and all they can do is knock someone out by hitting their vest. Facepalm emoticon

Just watched "Restless", a British spy-thriller that takes place during WW2 and 35 years later when the chickens come home to roost. Michele Dockery, Charlotte Rampling, Rufus Sewell, and Michael Gambon. Excellent!

Rewatched the first three John Wick movies over the weekend. Would have watched all four, but the fourth is only available to own/rent, and we didn't want to spend the money.

Last night I was watching Fascinating Horror on YouTube. From the description of the channel:
Quote:
I tell the true stories behind some of history's greatest disasters... but without sensationalism or disturbing imagery. Fascinating Horror is all about in-depth research, respectful storytelling, and learning what we can from the mistakes of the past. You might be surprised to discover just how much of today's world is shaped by long-forgotten disasters from decades gone by.

Just finished Oppenheimer. I had some trepidation about watching, reading some mixed reviews, plus the length of the film.... Nerd emoticon

But overall, a pretty good watch. It seemed pretty objective about him personally (one comment was questioning if it made him look too heroic or something).

As in other films covering that time, I'm reminded it's the Commies. Always the Commies that seemed to define the era.

I've had a few conversations with my kid about the morality of dropping the Bomb. They've been clearly against it, and, as of today, I would agree is was a horrible event on all levels, but if you've studied the war you can bring in firebombings, both German and Japan (Tokyo's resulted in 100K dead IIRC). I had a patient maybe 30 years ago that was a Marine waiting to invade the mainland that still remembered the roar of cheers with the news. I suspect he didn't have a day of sobriety since returning from the war. Anyway, I think the film handled that angle pretty well.

Longmire, through antenna. I've seen them all already, but it's still a fun show to watch.

Netflix in the USA has the first three. I'm assuming a viewer in the UK could use a VPN to access them, if they're not available on the UK version.

We watched "The Boys In A Boat" last night. It was very good, but got a little cheesy in spots.

I highly reccomend "Fauda" (chaos in arabic) as it is pretty timely considering what is happening in the world today. Lior Raz plays a leader in a fictional Israli undercover antiterrorist unit similar to Sayeret Duvdevan in which he actually served in real life. It has been acclaimed by both Arabic and Hebrew reviewers for its even handedness in portraying both points of view. Raz was also Arnold Schwarzenegger's body guard for a period.

We watched it in a mode that the Hebrew parts were dubbed in english and the Arabic parts were captioned in english. I have read though that some people who don't speak either language watched it in the native Hebrew and Arabic and learned many words of each. Anyway the acting is very good and the characters are nicely developed. Can't wait for season 5 to come out!

I watched Equalizer 3 last night. There were some good scenery pics and they threw in some random 2T Vespas.

The Spy (Netflix, limited series)

Sasha Baron Cohen stars in a most "un-Borat" role, playing Eli Cohen, an Israeli spy in the 1960s (inspired by true events). This one is well worth the time to watch in my opinion. Sasha Baron Cohen knocks it out of the park.

I watched that a while ago, and agree that it is very good. I love it when comedic actors take dramatic roles and do them well.

My wife and I both really liked American Nightmare on Netflix.

True story, riveting to say the least. You won't be disappointed in the show but it is a true story so… I don't want to give anything away.

I will say I am very glad to have the dogs.

Watched it this weekend! Good one. It made me laugh when he was running during training cause he did it just like Borat.
