  • More a Netflix than Amazon viewer? There's something there too worth watching

    Over on Netflix, I recommend The Lincoln Lawyer (series). The movie, made a bit over ten years ago, was good, but the new series (which adapts the same novel, but has different details) has room to explore themes and characters more fully. Both film and show are on Netflix Canada (can't speak to Netflix elsewhere for the film--but the series is a Netflix show) and are worth a viewing. I'd recommend watching the film first to more fully appreciate the extra material in the series. They differ enough that each is enjoyable. No need to watch the film to appreciate the series (or vice versa).

    I binge watched the Devil in Ohio yesterday flying back to the USA. That was an interesting short season about a cult. I will take a look at your Lincoln Lawyer suggestion for a series to watch when I'm flying back over to seas in a few weeks.

      When I was traveling a lot, I used to binge watch TV shows a lot. It helped keep me grounded on "back home." Thankfully, those traveling days are behind me

      Recently I got hooked on the Bosch series on Amazon. So far, its proven to be a pretty dark, gritty crime drama. Harry Bosch seems a lot like Harry Calahan for the 21st century

        I downloaded the Lincoln Lawyer series for my travels this weekend 😁. I looking forward to the next season of Sex Education and Big Mouth. Thanks for the suggestion on the show Ovation

          I'm happy to make recommendations (when I have time to watch things myself). My current recommendation is The Old Man. In Canada, it's on Disney+. I don't know where it streams in the US (it is an F/X series, if that helps). Not finished with it, but it's excellent. Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow are fantastic.

            Thanks! I haven't got Disney+ yet. Only Netflix and Prime that I never use. It gets frustrating with all these different content providers and then having to have all kinds of subscriptions.

              I finally finished watching Lincoln Lawyer back in November while I was traveling overseas. Now Paradise PD season 4 came out and I'm trying to watch that. Seems like evenings and airplanes are the best time for me to watch anything when it is a series. Otherwise it's movies while I'm home in the theater.

              What else have you watched that you can pass on?

                On Netflix, I've enjoyed The Recruit. I also like Slow Horses on Apple TV+ (despite the title, it's not a western, but a British spy series). Also on Netflix, Old Henry (that is a western).

                  Treason, on Netflix Canada at least, is a more serious spy limited series than The Recruit (it’s very British). Good acting talent (Charlie Cox, Cìrian Hinds, Alex Kingston) and a decent spy story. Only 5 episodes, so not a major commitment.

                    I will see if I can get that in the USA. I got caught up in Ginny & Georgia at the moment. Flying through the weekend on this as the weather is miserable here and I have no motivation to go outside 😂
