Started watching The Terminal List on Amazon Prime with Chris Pratt heading a SEAL team through covert operations. He has real SEALs as actors who lend more authenticity to the events. So far, it has kept my interest.

Have read all the Jack Carr books. They are very well written. Pratt did nice job in the series.

It will be impossible to top Better Call Saul and Ozark.

But we recently rediscovered and finished an old series, Friday Night Lights, and enjoyed it immensely.

Recently began watching Kim Convenience on Netflix. It is that rarest commodity: a clean light comedy.

If you can imagine "Fresh off the Boat" meets "Corner Gas" then that might sum it up. A Korean family running a convenience store.

Enjoying so far.

Friday Night Lights is one of my favorite series of all times

"Workin' Moms" currently on Netflix.
It's a Canadian 1/2 hour sitcom about a group of women with newborns. Nothing really great but I am enjoying it.

Just finished The Perfect Mother on Netflix. Good 4-part series. Some twists and a few German subtitles but overall a good watch.

+1 on Hotel Portofino.

Not a series - but we just watched the movie "The Tender Bar" on prime. Directed by George Clooney and has Ben Affleck as a major supporting character. A nice, thoughtful, movie.

The French is dubbed and the German is subtitled. It is a good dubbing job but, because I know some German, I has to focus on the English subs. DW knows no German so she had a good time.

The Offer on Paramount + based on the making of the Godfather anyone in their late 60's early 70's should find it a good watch...echoing a review made a few pages up thread.

Just Finished Lincoln Lawyer, very good show as some folks mentioned earlier.

Ragdoll, UK Police procedural, also good as most UK Police Dramas are.

On Britbox:

The second series of Grace is available; I watched all three episodes last week.

I really enjoy this series, and look forward to the third series in about a year.

Watched Maggie on Hulu. It's a fun show and the repartee between the characters is excellent. They seem to pay a lot of attention to the details of how the characters interact. The writing seems creative.

I also tried to watch The Bear on Hulu. I gave up a few shows in when I got sick of listening to people yell profanity at each other. After the third episode, I found it boring.

Agree, the profanity and the yelling throughout was jarring and not entertaining. Made it partway through the 2nd episode and switched to something less toxic.

Started watching The Old Man, (Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, and Amy Brenneman) on Hulu. Very good. It grabbed my attention from the get-go.

We also started watching Season 2 of Only Murders in the Building on Hulu, but I think you can watch this on some other streaming services as well. We're only on EP2, but besides the original cast members like Steve Martin/Selena Gomez/Martin Short, we've already seen Tina Fey, Amy Schumer, and Shirley Maclaine on the show.

I just finished watching The Split. AMC+ through Prime.
British show primarily about a family of women who are divorce lawyers. I really enjoyed it. 3 seasons with the storyline wrapping up in season 3.
Nicola Walker is the lead character.
