My wife and I recently watched 3 seasons of The Handmaid's tale.  I always thought the name meant it would be a chick flick.  A couple of women at work told me they watched it and loved it.  Guys at work said they watched it with their wives and their wives loved it.  So we gave it a try.

The first 3 or 4 episodes were VERY hard for me to watch.  If you have not watched it or heard of it, go read some reviews and maybe watch it.  There is only one more season left and it will come out next year.  My wife and I both like it a lot.

I read the book and it came across horribly bleak so when I saw there was a series my reaction was ICK, no thanks. One of my clients, however, who also read the book said the series was phenomenal so I figure I will eventually watch it when I have nothing else to watch, lol, and probably like it. Uh, as far as series as of late, Poldark (based on a friends recommendation) and That 70's show. Keeping the paranormal out of this response was harder than I thought, lol.

Watched the second season of Mindhunters. Superb dialogue which seems to be missing in most movies/series nowadays. Visual conveyance is substituted mostly with vocal description leading the watcher to use their own imagination filling in the pieces. Reminds me of Hitchcock movies which never employed graphic details. The viewer feels more like a participant. I'm an avid crime buff. It's one of Netflix's hotest titles.

Agents of SHEILD. It can get real corny/hokey but it's fun, cheesy entertainment.  Preacher on AMC is a hoot, it's on it's last season. Both Walking Dead and Fear TWD are must watches for me. Also UFO series Unidentified, Contact, and I do watch Ancient Aliens, although it's cringeworthy when they try to relate everything in history to aliens. They are focusing on new and recent developments in the UFO field lately and less with the hokum. Is it still cheesy? Ancient Alien theorists say "yes" ;)

Movies, haven't see many lately that aren't paranormal related, but finally saw Avengers Endgame. Good epic movie, although many Marvel characters seemed thrown in as fan service and appeared only briefly.

One of the ladies at work who told me to watch Handmaid's tale told me to watch Mindhunters next.  She said she really liked it!!!

Mindhunters is amazing. Really good. I致e been trying to pace myself.

I watched season 1 and part of 2 of Handmaids Tale. I thought it was ok but I found out the lead actress is a Scientologist so I stopped watching. I know it probably sounds stupid but I try not to watch/support anything with people that I know are Scientologists. It痴 my own little protest.

Kaliney....  You need to read what that show is about.  It was hard for me to watch how the women were being treated / repressed.  Be mindful of that before watching S01E1

Expedition Unknown (I adore Josh; he's so funny and quirky.)

Legendary Locations (Again, we're talking about Josh.)

Dr. Jeff Rocky Mountain Vet (Dr. Jeff is so compassionate to animal and human alike.)

Bondi Vet (Chris Brown is so sweet and caring.)

Dark Waters (I'm catching up on me Jeremy Wade shows.)

River Monsters (It's Jeremy again.)

Midsomer Murders (Set in modern-day cozy villages of Midsomer County. Where the murder count is over 500.)

Vera (It's a British Crime Drama series set in the 2010s Newcastle in north-east England. Think of her as a female Colombo)

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (Is set in 1920s Melbourne)

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card (I'm a sucker for Japanese anime spoken in Nihongo, and I love the Sakura series. Also, I love almost everything put out by Studio Ghibli as well.)  

I wish Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files was still on the air; I loved that show and how they debunk all those YouTube videos.

Jeezz.  I really had to search for a place for this.

Doesn't anyone watch broadcast tv anymore.  There is this terrorific show on CBS on Thursday nights at 10:00 p.m.   EVIL.  It's genre is listed as Mystery Suspense yet it gives me the creeps.  It's premise is simple, Good vs Evil.  God vs Satan.  The Catholic Church vs The 60.  The cast works well together.

Katja Herbeus is the Forensic Psychologist, Kristen Bouchard
Mike Kolter is the student of Religious Studies and the Accessor for the Catholic Church, David Acosta
Aasif Mondi is the Technical Specialist, Ben Shroff
But it is Michael Emerson who shines as the psychopath/demon. Dr. Leland Townsend   (Hope Vlawde isn't reading this)

The setting and plots are contemporary and address what we've all been wondering about when it comes to the Catholic Church.  But the best part is the cast.  Kristen Bouchard is not a believer.  David Acosta is a believer.  Ben Shroff is not a believer.  Dr. Leland Townsend is BIG TROUBLE.  This show makes me cringe because L. Townsend is a bad man or is it demon?

I wait for Thursdays.  And guess what..the  premiere is Sleep Paralysis and Night Terrors.
Happily Wacko.

He always plays kind of an oddball/ He was in Person of Interest, and I believe Lost before that.

Yes.  He plays an excellent bad creepy guy.  I thought you might be upset with entities and demons.  I'm with you on that but this show is good. Thanks for the picture.

Has anyone caught Watchmen on HBO?  Is this based on comics?

Edit.  There has only been one episode that aired this past Sunday.

I did watch it, but so far, not sure if it's worth getting invested in.

Not sure why you'd think I'd be upset with demons and entities.

I知 really into Call the Midwife. Originally a PBS show (never watched it on PBS) currently there are 8 seasons on Netflix.

The Great British Bake Off
