Oh yah, Fargo's back and other good tv eh

Post by MediumTex » Thu Oct 22, 2015 6:54 pm

I will watch it.  I wanted to watch it last season, but I couldn't find it streaming anywhere.  I can stream most things through my cable provider, but not Fargo.

Here are the shows all PPers should watch:

Breaking Bad
Battlestar Galactica
Deadwood
The Wire
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Vikings
Justified
The Americans
The Walking Dead


Let me know if I left anything out.

(If you would like a movie recommendation, watch Get Low on Netflix.  It's a great little movie with Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray.  About halfway through, you realize there is far more going on with the story than you thought.  Very entertaining.)

On that level of caliber, Sons of Anarchy!!!

I loved Get Low.    I watch everything with Duvall in it.  MT, have you ever watched "The Apostle," with Duvall? 

Also loved House of Cards and Breaking Bad. 

Anyone like House M.D.?  I'm watching that now.  He's very rude.  I like him.

Just FYI, you can definitely enjoy 2 on its own without having seen season 1.

Season One is on Hulu.

Watching it now.

I just finished seasons 3-5 of Walking Dead, so I needed a new show to fill the void.

Watched it back in 1999 or so.  Great film.

On the subject of Fargo, Season One has Saul in it!  Bonus!

I especially like the backstory on the film.  It was a story Duvall really wanted to tell.  He had trouble getting others interested.  And the crazy tent revival preachers are real preachers ... they didn't even have to act.  I loved the tag-team style, crazy preaching style.  It's just a darn good movie.

Yes, not Homeland's Mandy Patinkin but B-Bad's Bob Odenkirk. He's great.

Better Call Saul is fantastic.
Mad Men is as good as television gets, IMO
I also really enjoyed Bloodline on Netflix.  "We're not bad people, we just did a bad thing."

Honorable mention:
Halt and Catch Fire
Silicon Valley

Kudos for mentioning Justified, although I fear they're going to drag it out instead of resolving it while it's still good.  The actors are great on that show.  Especially the guy who plays Teddy.

Justified is over. Last season was the finale.
