Because the world is staying at home, and doesn't have as much to do, I thought I'd share some series I've enjoyed watching.
I've watched them all at least once, and some of them two or three times.
But they're so good, I'd happily watch any of them again.
(IMDB) 75 episodes. A Cold War spy series, set in the 80s. A Russian pair of spies lives in the US in deep cover as a normal family.
(IMDB) 96 episodes. A series about a bi-polar CIA operative. Has a couple of dodgy seasons, but overall is good.
Le Bureau des Légendes
(IMDB) 50 episodes (ongoing?). A French series about the DGSE
(IMDB) 61 episodes (ongoing). A grumpy LA detective
(IMDB) 5 episodes. Short but sweet. Really gripping look at how the disaster occurred, and how it was handled.
(IMDB) 41 episodes (ongoing). I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. I'm not a royalist at all, but it is really good. There's quite a lot of history in there, and you realise that even though they're royal, they still have the same issues as the rest of us.
(IMDB) 79 episodes. About the Vikings.
(IMDB) 88 episodes. French cop drama. Putain, c'est les fliques!
(IMDB) 60 episodes. Slow burning series set in Baltimore about the various problems related to drugs. Give it time though - it's a slow starter. Really strong accents/slang sometimes. Watch out for the hoppers in the low rises, yo.
(IMDB) 54 episodes. If you like "cringe comedy", you'll love this. Some of the funniest stuff I've ever seen.
(IMDB) 62 episodes. Watch the first episode, and if that doesn't hook you, then I don't know.
(IMDB) 18 episodes (ongoing). Standard CIA drama, but better than I expected.
(IMDB) 38 episodes. Scandinavian police drama
(IMDB) 30 episodes. Series about catching Pablo Escobar
(IMDB) 86 episodes
Game of Thrones
(IMDB) 73 episodes. Generally good, but with a rushed final couple of seasons. Lots of blood, violence, sex and betrayal.
(IMDB) 19 episodes. About the evolution of the Behavioural Science Unit of the FBI
(IMDB) 24 episodes. Season 1 was very good.
(IMDB) 124 episodes
So, there should be enough there to keep you going for a few weeks at least.
