I have watched The Americans-but I am pretty sure you have watched that one.

At times, I am tempted to do The Sopranos.

Narcos on Netflix is probably next on my binge list.

For fun-I am almost through with Big Bang Theory and I have started (on Season 2) of Parks and Rec.

Bingeing is a winter project for me.

Last night I watched the season-ending 10th episode of The Lost Symbol on Peacock. I've been watching it weekly. I'll give the series a 3 out of 5.

I've been binge-watching "Prodigal Son" on HBO Max. It's about a criminal profiler who has hallucinations.

I'm not a binge watcher, but there a few series' that my wife and I have watched until completion.

Episodes - a Netflix series (more sitcom than anything) based on a British series. I don't watch too many sitcoms because most are terrible and rarely make me laugh. This one made me laugh pretty much every episode. Yes, even Matt LeBlanc. Five seasons

Longmire - a Western crime drama set in Wyoming with Aussie Robert Taylor as the titular sheriff. Lots of great characters, including a wide range of Native American actors. Six seasons.

Mad Men - This one has been around awhile, but it is one of the best series ever produced. I got the entire series on Blu-Ray for Father's Day a few year's back. It's worth the hype and awards. Seven seasons.
Longmire started to run the series from the beginning on some network we usta get for "free," but the ratings it created must have encouraged them to make it a premium channel. The network that runs Yellowstone did the same thing. If we wanted to watch Yellowstone (we don't), we would have to pay more.

I would like to watch Longmire. When SteelersFan gets back, we'll probably stream it.

As an appetizer, I finished The Flight Attendant with Kaley Cuoco. She's very good in it and the actual story is a fairly good mystery, but... she's an annoying, self-pitying, whining central character who only semi-rehabilitates herself by the end of the series. Following her for eight hours was an endurance test.

Based on some of the feedback I've gotten here (thanks to all who contributed), I've started on Breaking Bad. Four episodes down, 58 to go, plus the movie. I should finish around Christmas.
I've just finished Season 4 of Better Call Saul on Netflix. Season 5 doesn't seem to be available anywhere on-line, not even through AMC. I strongly recommend it once you've finished Breaking Bad. The prequel may be even better than the original. --Bob

Not as far as I know, but I think Season 5 won't drop onto Netflix until Season 6 starts airing on AMC. Maybe shortly before. --Bob

Are you sure you watched Season 5 on Netflix and not on AMC? Because my Netflix account only has four seasons of the show, and I think Season 6 is dropping on AMC (not Netflix) in 2022. (The premiere date may have been pushed back by Bob Odenkirk's heart attack.) --Bob

If this follows the pattern of similar TV series, Season 5 will be available for binging on AMC shortly before Season 6 premieres.

Only Murders in the Building, Hulu. Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez. It is funny. Only one season now but should be renewed.
We just finished this and liked it. Checking some fan sites, not everyone loved Selena Gomez' acting, but I thought it suited her character. LOVED all of the Broadway peeps in smaller parts
Spoiler
(Jayne Houdeyshell is a stage legend who doesn't do a ton of TV, Ali Stroker won a Tony a few years ago in the Oklahoma revival, and Nathan Lane was a total treat)
. Plus
Spoiler
Jane Freaking Lynch
showed up for a paycheck.

It does have a tad more language than some people thought it needed, but it feels accurate to NYC and these characters (mostly Mabel).

I especially loved the way they used the episode 1 victim in later episodes, in some creative ways.

We have a year and a half to figure out who texted our heroes at the end of season 1, plus, you know, all the other things.
