    Binge Watching favorites (TV)

    What are your favorite tv series to binge watch on Netflix (or whatever)? I will soon be ready for another. and am considering Sherlock, based on friends' recommendations. So far I've gone through Game of Thrones, The Tudors and am just starting season 6 of 7 for The West Wing (my all-time favorite series; it's just as good the second time around!) My daughters and I will also often sit down and go through several episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, although not in order. Others? Here's a great West Wing moment:

    I've just started "The Bureau"; the French spy series (watching in French w/subtitles, as my French is very rusty). Very good so far.

    Not sure if it's the same in the UK as the US, but it's on Amazon Prime Video here.

    Thanks JTM and Stryder1978! I also enjoyed 24 but I think I like Homeland better; the pace of 24 was almost too much.

    Thanks; I've watched the first 3-4 episodes and couldn't get into it, but I have heard good things about it.

    Has anyone else watched Homeland? I'm watching it now; currently in season 4 in Islamabad. Season 4 is like a totally different show than 1-3. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I also recently watched Grace & Frankie and really enjoyed that!

    Songs that remind you of other songs

    This song feels like a morph between the Cure and the White Stripes

    Good cover songs

    I like the cover much better than the original. The cover: And the original:

    What song is stuck in your head?

    Not sure why, but here it is
  11. I hope you're having a wonderful birthday!! 😎
  12. I listened to "Ball and Chain" recently for the first time in a very long time and was surprised by how much it reminded me of SIBLY; maybe not the lyrics, but pretty much everything else about it.

    Jack White - Third Man Records

    If you let the You Tube clip play through, there's another new Raconteurs single right behind it!

  16. I should've included the first Bridget Jones' Diary (reindeer jumper) and the first Harry Potter (Sorcerer's Stone); I have always loved the Christmas scene!
  17. 😊 It's one of my favorites of any genre!

    What's the Last Concert You Attended?

    DMB Friday night (12/14) in Charlottesville, with Preservation Hall Jazz Band. It was a fantastic show; they played for 2.5+ hours and they played the "All Along the Watchtower/Stairway to Heaven" medley (and the Christmas Song!) during the encore 😎 They also played a second Charlottesville show last night (12/15) with a totally different setlist. We only went Friday; wish we'd gone to both

    BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL: The College Football Thread

    Thanks; they ended up with a huge win against UVA on Friday.; what a game that was! We have Notre Dame alumni in the family too, so I can't be too upset about that one.

    My Television shows.

    Looking at your original list, I think you need to watch 24. I haven't seen Homeland yet but I've been told they are similar; the vibe reminded me of the Sopranos/early House of Cards (riveting but really hard to watch) but it's about counterterrorism. My favorite is The West Wing; if you are an optimist / Sorkin fan it's the best! (and if you like Mary Louise Parker/Weeds, she has a recurring role).
